Crash kills London mother, daughter
Their car hit a median on Highway 401 and was struck by a transport truck.

A London mother and daughter dedicated to helping victims of self abuse were killed yesterday in a Highway 401 crash that led to the death of a third driver hours later.
B.J. THOM, 52, also known as Elizabeth, and her daughter, Ashley GARROD, 22, were killed after their car hit the median in the east lanes of Highway 401 between Colonel Talbot Road and Wellington Road, spun out of control and was hit by a transport truck during heavy rain about 4 a.m., police said.
The driver of the tractor-trailer faces several charges, including leaving the scene of an accident causing death.
A second crash occurred just before 11 a.m. at the roadblock where police were diverting traffic from Highway 401 to Colonel Talbot Road.
A transport truck slowed down at the roadblock and a second truck slammed into it, killing the driver of the second truck.
Killed in the second crash was Timothy McDERMOTT, 50, of South Woodslee, Essex County.
The three deaths bring to nine the total killed on area roads the last 11 days and the carnage is exasperating police, said Const. Doug GRAHAM of Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police.
"Every accident on Highway 401 and 402 in the past few days was preventable. We are very concerned about all these deaths," he said.
Some drivers aren't getting the message to slow down in bad weather or at night, to leave room between vehicles and to wear seatbelts, GRAHAM said.
"That is is what is so disturbing."
Friends of THOM and GARROD expressed horror yesterday at the news the pair had died.
THOM and GARROD ran Self Abuse Finally Ends in Canada, a London-based group that helps people who hurt themselves.
THOM had successfully fought self abuse, said Trix VAN EGMOND, mental health public educator with the Canadian Mental Health Association of London- Middlesex.
"She gave help back and she did it in a personalized way. She was very funny and irreverent, I think, from going to hell and back herself."
GARROD was driving the car when the crash occurred, Ontario Provincial Police said.
Police learned of the accident from a motorist who noticed headlights from a vehicle in the south ditch along the east lanes.
Officers arrived to find the two women dead and the car "extensively damaged," GRAHAM said.
They also found a headlight at the scene.
"From the impact and from the evidence left at the scene we were able to determine it was a tractor-trailer we were looking for," GRAHAM said.
It appears the car hit the median and spun enough that the truck hit the passenger side, GRAHAM said.
Police searched area truck stops for a damaged tractor- trailer missing a headlight. They found a truck parked at the back of the Flying J truck stop south off Highway 401 near Highbury Avenue about two hours later, GRAHAM said.
The driver was inside the truck, he added, and at first refused to leave the cab, .
"He made no effort to contact police or return to the scene," GRAHAM said.
Stefan FOGIEL, 61, of Acton, has been charged with two counts of failing to remain at the scene of an accident causing death, resisting arrest, failing to maintain log books and failing to have a pre-trip inspection, Ontario Provincial Police said.
FOGIEL made a brief court appearance before Justice of the Peace Patricia HODGINS yesterday.
White-haired with glasses and wearing a white T-shirt with a Bass Beer logo, FOGIEL told HODGINS he wanted a Polish interpreter for his court appearances.
Assistant Crown attorney Brian WHITE/WHYTE ordered FOGIEL be kept in custody. He is to make a video court appearance today.
The second crash yesterday occurred only minutes after police had removed the London women's crumpled blue car from the scene of the first incident.
"The lead transport truck was slowing down. The one behind slammed into it. It was quite an impact," GRAHAM said.
The driver of the first transport, Harpreet PANNU, 29, of Brampton, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
There was no reason for the collision, GRAHAM said.

Fanshawe student aimed to help others
Ashley GARROD, killed in a Highway 401 crash, was studying for child, youth work.
By Daniela SIMUNAC, Sun Media, Thurs., September 13, 2007
Ashley GARROD seemed destined for a career helping others.
Working alongside her mother to help those struggling with self abuse, the 22-year-old Fanshawe student was in her second year studying to become a child and youth worker.
The mother and daughter were killed Tuesday after their car was hit by a transport truck in the east lanes of Highway 401 between Colonel Talbot Road and Wellington Road.
It was the first of two deadly 401 crashes that day.
The driver of the tractor-trailer faces charges, including failing to remain at the scene of an accident causing death.
GARROD was described yesterday by her peers as being "extremely bright," "always smiling" and "creative."
Her mother, 52-year-old B.J. THOM, also known as Elizabeth, was executive director of Self Abuse Finally Ends in Canada, a London-based group that helps people who inflict pain on themselves.
"It was such a shock when I heard," said Mary GRAHAM, the founder of Self Abuse Finally Ends. "B.J. was a very kind and caring person. She was just amazing."
THOM, a Toronto native, took over the group from Graham in 1998. She battled with self abuse for years, GRAHAM said.
Fanshawe College spokesperson Jeff SAGE said students and staff who knew the mother and daughter were deeply saddened by the news of their deaths.
"It's a huge loss to the social services community."
Students can meet with counsellors and chaplains at the college to help them with their grief, he said.
Only hours after GARROD and THOM were killed, a second fatal crash occurred where a roadblock had been set up to divert traffic from the scene.
As a transport truck slowed down for the roadblock, a second transport hit it.
Timothy McDERMOTT, 50, of Essex County, driver of the second transport, was killed.
Western Region Ontario Provincial Police report there have been 10 fatal crashes in September, resulting in 12 deaths, many which could have been prevented.
"This trend is very distressing," said Const. Doug GRAHAM of Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police. Speed, following too closely and not paying attention appear to be the major factors, he said.
"If people are in a hurry, they drive aggressively," said GRAHAM, adding that following too closely and driving too fast were factors in McDERMOTT's death.
"Thousands of other cars had made that merge into the road closure without a collision," he said.
"He paid the ultimate price for driving incorrectly."
Highway Safety Tips
Calling the recent spate of deadly crashes on local roads "distressing," Ontario Provincial Police offer the following safety tips:
- Slow down.
- Leave about four car spaces between your vehicle and the next.
- Concentrate on your driving.
- Leave 10 minutes early so you won't be as tempted to rush if you come across traffic delays.
- Drivers who see a collision on a highway should pull over to a safe place and offer assistance when it's possible or get to the next exit and call police.

Three die in separate but related crashes on the 401
By Unnati GANDHI, Page A7
Three people are dead, including a mother and daughter, after a horrific chain of events unfolded on a small strip of Canada's busiest highway yesterday.
The accidents involved four vehicles - including three trucks - in two separate but related crashes.
It all began about 4 a.m. Fanshawe College student Ashley GARROD, 22, was driving eastbound on the 401 near London, Ontario, with her mother, Elizabeth THOM, when a tractor-trailer struck them from behind, police said. Their small car was sent skidding across the highway before coming to a stop in the ditch on the south side.
Ontario Provincial Police Sergeant Dave REKTOR said police received a 911 call about headlights seen shining out of the ditch.
When emergency crews arrived, they found Ms. GARROD and her 52-year-old mother dead inside the car. The truck that had hit them was nowhere to be found, Sgt. REKTOR said.
After issuing a public alert, police found a truck with extensive damage to its front at a Flying J truck stop a few kilometres away.
Its 61-year-old driver, Stefan FOGIEL, of Acton, has been charged with two counts of failing to remain at the scene of an accident causing death, resisting arrest, failing to maintain log books, and failing to have a pre-trip inspection.
The highway was closed for several hours as investigators reconstructed the collision.
Then, just before 11 a.m., a transport truck slowing down as it approached the roadblock at the collision site was struck from behind by another truck. The driver of the second truck, Timothy McDERMOTT, 50, died on impact. The driver of the first truck, Harpreet PANNU, suffered non-life-threatening injuries. No charges are expected to be laid.
"It would appear the driver was not paying attention," Sgt. REKTOR said. "The at-fault driver was the victim as well."
The officer said the collisions were that much more tragic because both could have been prevented with more careful driving.

Teen charged after mom killed
The 'dedicated, doting' mother of five was biking when struck by a driver accused of drunk driving.
By April KEMICK and Kate DUBINSKI, Sun Media, Sun., May 27, 2007
A mother of five is dead and a teenager charged with drunk driving causing death after a crash west of London that could have been prevented, police say.
Mary Beth THOMAS, 47, of Middlesex Centre, was riding her bike north along Coldstream Road when she was hit by a northbound car near Sinclair Drive about 9 p.m. Friday.
THOMAS, lauded by those who knew her as a "dedicated, doting" mother of five, was taken to University Hospital in London, where she died of her injuries.
The driver of a Plymouth Neon, Andrew Raymond DAVIS, 18, also of Middlesex Centre, has been charged with impaired driving causing death, possession of marijuana and breaching conditions.
"She was just the most devoted mother and wife," said Rev. Pam TOLMAY of Vanneck United Church, where THOMAS was a lifelong member.
"It's a devastating loss for her children, her family and this community."
Described as an avid sports fan who "took great pride in watching all of her children play minor sports," THOMAS supported 4H Junior Farmers and was an active member of her church.
"She was an incredible person," said fellow church member Ken NIXON.
Area police and activists against drunk driving expressed disappointment about the nature of the crash.
"This is a preventable tragedy that happens all too often," said David FINLEY, community leader for Mothers Against Drunk Driving in Haldimand-Norfolk.
"This type of thing shatters families and causes irreparable damage that is needless."
Ontario Provincial Police spokesperson Const. Michelle SMITH said THOMAS's death was preventable.
"It's always (a) tragedy when anybody loses their life. And this one could have been avoided," SMITH said.
"We want to remind drivers to look out for cyclists. It's nice out now, and cyclists are out, both adults and children.
"We also want to remind drivers to drive sober."

Fatal crash leaves one dead, one critical, but baby okay
Friday, August 17, 2007
A Hanover man is in critical condition following a two-car crash that killed his wife but left their baby uninjured Saturday.
Bernie LANTZ, 33, remained in London Health Sciences Centre this week in critical condition, a hospital spokeswoman said.
West Grey police said they could take three weeks to decide whether to charge an 18-year-old Hanover woman involved in the collision that killed Colleen LANTZ, 33, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
Deputy-Chief Robert THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said two collision experts are assigned to the case and the investigating officer is still gathering information.
The mechanical fitness of the cars must also be assessed, he said.
The teenaged driver will be identified only if she is charged, he said.
She was driving alone in a Chrysler Intrepid, which police said crossed the centre line before crashing into LANTZ's Volkswagen Jetta.
The collision occurred on Grey Road 4, east of Hanover, Saturday shortly after 10 am.
The LANTZs' baby and the teenage driver were not hurt.
A member of the LANTZ family said in a brief telephone interview Monday that the family is in London to support LANTZ. She declined to comment more.
Mighton Funeral Home in Hanover will be handling the arrangements.

Wiper-fluid punch suspected in death
By Kelly PEDRO and Kate DUBINSKI, Free Press Reporters, Thurs., January 4, 2007
One person is dead and three are in hospital after drinking punch mixed in an windshield-washer fluid container at two holiday parties in Chatham-Kent.
The host of one of the parties, Rebecca DEMEURICHY, 25, died yesterday after drinking punch that police think was contaminated with windshield-wiper fluid, which contains methyl alcohol.
Her husband, Rob DEMEURICHY, is one of the three people being treated at a London hospital.
Police said they are still investigating whether the contamination was intentional.
One person was in critical and another in serious condition at London Health Sciences Centre after being flown by air ambulance from Erieau.
The parties took place in Erieau, Chatham Kent-Police said. The condition of the third person was not known.
Police are urging anyone who was at DEMEURICHY home at 857 Mariners Rd., or at the home of Mary Lou VIDLER and Hartley VIDLER at 1300 Vidler Ave. between December 23 and January 1, to go to the nearest emergency department immediately.
"The sooner you (go) to hospital after drinking something toxic, the better chance you have," said Doctor Margaret THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, medical director of the Ontario Regional Poison Information Centre.
The VIDLERs, in their 70s, and DEMEURICHYs, in their mid-20s, are related, said Insp. George FLIKWEERT.
Police received a call to 857 Mariners Rd. in Erieau yesterday morning.
When they arrived, they found one person dead. Another was taken by helicopter to a London hospital.
Later yesterday, one more person was flown to a London hospital and another person drove themselves, police said.
The death and illnesses are being linked to an alcoholic mixed punch served at the two addresses on December 23 and December 31, FLIKWEERT said.
The drink concoction was mixed in a container and may have had traces of windshield washer fluid.
An autopsy could begin as early as today to determine DEMEURICHY's cause of death.
The mixed drink was served at an open house party at the VIDLER residence on December 23 and again at a New Year's Eve party at the DEMEURICHY home.
Rebecca DEMEURICHY was ill Tuesday, two days after the second party, FLIKWEERT said.
Between 12 and 18 people who were at one or both of the residences have already been contacted and gone to hospital, FLIKWEERT said. He said anyone who was at either house for a drink may have been contaminated.
"People may be laying around thinking they have the flu and in fact it's a… poisoning that may cause serious bodily harm or death," he said.
The problem with drinking "other alcohols" such as those found in gasoline antifreeze and windshield-washer fluid is that the body doesn't metabolize them right away, THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said.
Someone who drank "bad alcohol" could just feel drunk, and then feel nothing at all.
"They're not toxic until they're broken down into their byproducts," THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said.
If the "bad alcohol" was mixed with the usual stuff people drink at parties -- spirits, wine or beer -- then the symptoms would be delayed, she added, because kidneys first break down the non-toxic alcohol.
Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, shortness of breath or difficulty breath or vision changes, said Willi KIRENKO, a nurse practitioner.
She said only people who were at either address and drank an alcoholic beverage should be concerned.
People experiencing symptoms will have blood work taken and will know in about 30 minutes how serious their condition is, KIRENKO said
She urged people to take the warning seriously.
"The treatment for this… is time sensitive," she said.
Poison control has been helping direct the hospital with treatment.
Treatment includes dialysis -- one of the effects of drinking something such as windshield-washer fluid is kidney failure -- and intravenous fluids, THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said.
"It's very serious. We could save your life, but you could have permanent blindness… If all the byproducts haven't been made by the time you go to the hospital, we can delay the formation of the byproducts. (But) we can't reverse the problems," she said.
If You Where There
Police ask anyone who was at either address -- 1300 Vidler Ave. or 857 Mariners Rd., in Erieau -- during the holidays to contact Chatham-Kent police at 519-436-6616 and go to the nearest emergency department.

Daughter strangled
Friends say Aqsa PARVEZ clashed with her strict family.
By Rob LAMBERTI, Sun Media, Wed., December 12, 2007
Mississauga -- Muhammad PARVEZ appears in court this morning charged with strangling his daughter as homicide detectives continue to look at her older brother to determine if he had a role in the slaying.
The 57-year-old man was charged yesterday with killing 16-year-old Aqsa PARVEZ, who Friends say rebelled against her father's religious expectations. Aqsa died in the Hospital for Sick Children late Monday and her mother arranged for her daughter's organs be donated.
Peel detectives charged her brother, Waqas, 26, with obstructing police, allegedly for trying to mislead officers during their investigation.
But police said Waqas continues to be investigated by homicide detectives to determine if he's involved in Peel's 16th murder of the year.
"We're now trying to determine what role or culpability he may have had in the homicide as well," Peel police homicide Insp. Norm ENGLISH said. "We're certainly going to be conducting further investigations to determine if he had a role in this."
ENGLISH said the investigation is still early and whether Muhammad is charged with first- or second-degree murder depends on witness information and the results of a pending autopsy. Investigators suspect the Grade 11 Applewood Heights secondary school student was strangled.
Police were alerted to the incident when a man called police just before 8 a.m. Monday saying he had killed his daughter at their Longhorn Trail home.
Most students learned during the school's morning announcement yesterday that Aqsa, who was born in Pakistan, had died.
A memorial with her photo and a book of condolences was in the front lobby of the high school for classmates to jot down memories or poems.
"It's just, like, really sad. Everyone was just crying," said Grade 10 student Natalie RANCE.
Students and Friends said Aqsa began removing her hijab when she attended school this term after her older sister had graduated. With no one to watch over her, she apparently felt free to dress more casually.
Aqsa recently left the family home and moved in with a friend, said Krista GARBUTT. She said the victim was quite open with Friends about discussing the culture clash she was having with her father, but it appears no one in authority was aware.
"I don't think so; she didn't tell a teacher," Dominiquia HOLMES- THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said yesterday.
Students were sent home with letters for their parents informing them of Aqsa's death and an outline of symptoms for depression or stress that their kids may feel. It assured parents that counsellors are available.
HOLMES- THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON described Aqsa as a kind person who loved to take photos and to dance. "And all she wanted to do is to be herself."
She said Aqsa was at a friend's place after leaving her home around 8 p.m. Sunday.
"She was happy, she was ready to go to school, she was excited," HOLMES- THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said, adding Aqsa intended on returning to the family home to get clothes.
But HOLMES- THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said Aqsa told her she was "scared to go home."
"Because she didn't obey the rules…" she said.
HOLMES- THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said her friend would arrive at school wearing jogging pants and hijab and then change clothes, removing the traditional headscarf.
Friend Ashley GARBUTT, 16, said that Aqsa didn't want to wear the hijab any more.
"Then her sister kept telling her dad that she doesn't wear it," she said. "She left her house twice. She left and went to her friend's house because… she would get scared and she just didn't want to live there anymore. She wanted to be her own person and show her inner beauty."
GARBUTT said Aqsa went to a shelter and her father contacted her asking her to come home because neither he nor her mother could eat after she left the first time.
"She moved home because she felt bad, but she moved out again," she said.
Friends said there probably are other girls who find themselves in a similar situation.
"They should get help soon as possible, whether it's a counsellor," Ebonie MITCHELL said. "Because we never knew it was that bad. If they're in that situation, they should get help as soon as possible."

NELLES, Violet Jean "Vi" (née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON)
Teacher, mentor, friend, inspiration. Born April 9, 1921, in Norwich, Ontario Died April 26, in Toronto of cancer, aged 86.
By Laurie LYON, Page L10
Her house was very plain, white clapboard, nothing fancy. It became, for many children, a schoolhouse; her classroom was a kitchen with as many as eight children working around the table. In that kitchen, Mrs. NELLES cast her spell on all who came to learn. And come they did, for more than 35 years.
Many will remember her ability - a gift really - to persuade you that you were special, that you could succeed, that you would succeed, that you possessed the intelligence, the talent and ability, that it would be a shame for you not to pursue this or follow up that. Many will remember that they left her kitchen table feeling like Stephen Hawking or Einstein, at least for a couple of hours.
Violet Jean THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON's father had emigrated from County Down, in what is now Northern Ireland. Her mother was Canadian, of Scottish descent. Vi was one of six children, the others all boys. At barely 5-foot-2, she was, by her own account, a tomboy, riding on the back of her brother's motorcycle all over the township. The tomboy became a teacher in a one-room schoolhouse north of Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, then moved to Toronto and started a family. Although she turned down an offer to teach full-time, an opportunity to tutor a neighbour's child brought a flood of children to her home. In time, Vi NELLES's reputation was firmly established as a tutor nonpareil.
Quick to praise your efforts, she was quicker to upbraid any lack of application. While she was infinitely patient, students weren't there to be coddled. Exposed from the outset, malingerers very quickly came to realize they were dealing with a person many steps ahead of them. She would serve homemade cookies or muffins. If you arrived tired, you were invited to nap on a cot upstairs, where she would put a blanket over you. Memories of Vi NELLES are enduring.
Many remember that Vi loved and spoiled her husband, Harry, beyond all reason. And that Harry affectionately called her Tommy, that she loved her three daughters and adored her grandchildren, that she was the best mother, an even better grandmother, a faithful friend, an unrivalled teacher, a fabulous cook, a patient listener, a discreet confidant, and a sage observer.
They remember that she possessed a delightful sense of humour, that she could play piano and violin, that she liked wine and chocolate but seldom indulged, for fear of aggravating her always-lurking nemesis, arthritis. Despite her fondness for people, she barely endured house parties. She enjoyed breakfast at a little restaurant with me, or you, or lunch with Mrs. Taylor, and lots of conversation. Until recently, she was quick to say yes to a cup of coffee at Tim Hortons. She loved her little cottage at Lake Scugog. She detested housework, never wore makeup and dressed in casual clothes regardless of the occasion.
Vi was enormously well-read. She kept a log of the books she read and when she read them. The variety was limitless, from The Journals of Lewis and Clark to Crow Lake (which she thought was hugely overrated); from Mordecai Richler to Thomas Jefferson, Beryl Markham to James Joyce. She read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance at least four times. I remember her reading Paradise Lost and loving it. She read War and Peace last year, when she was 85.
I will remember, among myriad things, her teaching me algebra at her kitchen table when I was 16, and teaching me how to make pastry for apple pie at mine when I was 55. I will remember her kinship with my mother, who was a teacher too, and her affection toward my children. Vi couldn't wait to hold my newly arrived granddaughter.
There are many people who came to be touched by her; we are all better people for having known her.
Laurie LYON is a friend of Vi NELLES

WALLACE, Michael Sydney (March 21, 1927-June 12, 2007)
Our family is sad to announce that Mike passed away at home on Tuesday, June 12 with Josie by his side. Married to Josephine DILL 53 years ago, Mike led the family from Montreal to Toronto, out to Winnipeg and then finally back to Toronto. Together they raised a great family of four children: Alistair (Corinne SCHUSTER,) Sarah (Paul HAMBLETON,) Derek (MaryAnn LEE) and Christopher (Katie THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.) He will always be remembered as a wonderful grandfather by Teighan, Aiden, Ava, Aman, Catherine, Annie, Lizzy and Michael. So proud of his grandfather and great-grandfather's founding role at Bishop's College School, Mike attended Bishop's College School and later achieved his C.A. designation. He worked and made many Friends over the years at MacDonald Currie, Urwick Currie, P.S. Ross, Bay Bronze Inc., Wilson Office Specialty, Harrison and Crossfield, and finally, AC Technical, where he happily worked into his seventies. Being Mike meant: countless visits to the hockey rink, trips to the Winnipeg Winter Club, Chairman of the Board at Saint_John's Ravenscourt, always wishing for a sailboat at his birthday, helping with the L.P.A.A., and getting out on the course for a round of golf. A trip last summer to Tadoussac completed an important circle for Mike, returning to a place so special to him. Mike's love for life, his never ending support, love and encouragement, and his great sense of humour will be with us always. Husband, father, grandfather&hellip he will be so missed by all of us. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, June 14 and 1-3 and 7-9 p.m. Friday, June 15. Service at 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 16 in Saint John's York Mills, 19 Don Ridge Drive, followed by a private family interment. Mike would have been so pleased if you would consider a donation to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, 610 Unviersity Avenue, Toronto M5G 2M9 or a charity important to you.

WEYMAN, Ronald C.T. (1915-2007)
It is with great sadness that the family of Ron WEYMAN announces his passing on June 26, 2007. Ron left this world peacefully in his sleep at the place he loved best - the Weyman farmhouse outside of Flesherton, Ontario, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Erith, Kent, England in 1915, Ron came to Canada with his family at age 8. His artistic pursuits started early and he was acting, painting, writing and taking photographs, before joining the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve in 1939, serving as Lieutenant Commander in the North Atlantic, D-Day and South East Asia theatres where his achievements were 'mentioned in dispatches' to the Admiralty. He was also recognized as a war artist, with his work hanging in the National War Museum. He joined the fledgling National Film Board of Canada in 1946 and took his award winning documentary filmmaking skills to television in 1954 when he joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Toronto to produce and direct television drama. Over a 26 year career at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Ron was a broadcast pioneer responsible for thousands of hours of television and the establishment of hundreds of careers. His key contribution was taking television 'out of the studio and into the streets' in the 1960s with the groundbreaking series 'Wojeck'. His programs won critical acclaim, attracted millions of viewers, and created the template for Canadian drama that continues to this day. After retiring in 1980 he continued to direct, traveled, wrote three novels and a book of memoirs as well as several screenplays, learned to play classical guitar and returned to his first love - painting. In 2001 he was recognized for his contribution to Canadian culture, receiving the Governor General's Masterworks Award. Slowed only by age, he was finally felled by a stroke four years ago and has now found merciful release. Ron will be greatly missed by his loving wife Vanna with whom he shared 60 years of marriage and raised five creative children - Cindy (BISAILLON,) Jenny (WEYMAN- CHARTOFF,) John ('Tiki',) Peter ('Bay') and James. He enjoyed watching his family grow with the arrival of 11 grandchildren - Tosh, Kit, Raffa, Caley, Jesse, Teo, Luke, Riley, and Emma WEYMAN; Chloe BISAILLON and Miranda WEYMAN- CHARTOFF. Holidays and weekends often saw the gathering of the family tribe at 'The Farm' where Ronny presided at the head of the table with his toasts of 'yo, yo, yo!'. Ron also leaves his dear sister - broadcaster, writer and sculptor Rita Greer ALLEN, widow of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation veteran Robert ALLEN; sons and daughters in-law Robert CHARTOFF, Heather GILMAN, Anne LINDSAY, Anne McCLELLAND and Richard PARTINGTON; and nephews and nieces Astrid WEYMAN, Pief WEYMAN and Wendy THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. His family is so grateful for the time they were able to share with Ronny, even in his twilight days, and for the enormous, loving legacy that he has left behind. Fare you well, old sailor. Thanks to all the caregivers who helped Ronny through his last years, especially those at the Queen Elizabeth Centre, and the South West/Grey Bruce Community Care Access Centre, Care Partners and Red Cross. Cremation has occurred and a gathering of Friends and family to honour his memory and celebrate his accomplishments will take place at the Arts and Letters Club, 14 Elm Street, Toronto from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, July 8, 2007. Memorial Celebration at noon with reception to follow. No flowers please but donations are encouraged to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

WARD, Claire (née HIGGINS)
Died quietly on July 5, 2007 at age 87, the final small transition in an illness that had diminished her once-sharp mind and weakened her once-agile body. Her emotional capacity endured longer, allowing occasional flashes of her essential kindness, sweetness and bravery, even towards the end. Claire was born in East York in 1919, the youngest in a family of five children of Thomas Bartholomew William HIGGINS and Augusta RYAN, and step-mother Frances COOK. Her four siblings, Tony, Marjorie, Arthur and Ray all predeceased her. In 1932, the family returned to England and in 1938, Claire married Arthur WARD. They were intensely devoted to each other for 65 years until his death in 2003. They went through the London Blitz together, each working in civil defense. Then in 1949 they and their daughters emigrated to Canada where Claire worked with passion and commitment in a number of helping organizations in Toronto, including many years with the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, and the United Nations Association in Canada. She also studied for 14 years, mostly in the evenings, to get a B.A. from the University of Toronto at age 54. Claire and Arthur were members of Holy Trinity Church, Thornhill and Saint Paul's (Westdale) in Hamilton. For the family, the sense of missing her began some years ago but now it is definite. She was "Mum" to Vandra (and husband Volker MASEMANN) and Kirsten (and husband Don THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON) and "Granny" to Charlotte (Erik DE VRIES,) Alison (Jeff GRAY/GREY,) Hilary, Bronwen, Rosemary, Galen (Ratana EK,) and Taliesin (Coire LANGHAM.) And we are happy that she was able to spend some time with her great-grand_sons, Leo, Willem and Felix. Elizabeth THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON will miss her honourary Granny. Claire will also be missed by her nephews Peter and Donald LOGAN and her sister Marjorie's descendants, and also by her cousin Joyce SMITH, and special Friends. We are overwhelmingly grateful for the kind care and companionship she experienced at New Horizons Tower, her home for the past five years. The staff there and her morning caregivers from Para Med have treated her with the kind of respect and gentleness that she accorded everybody. She was an exceptional person. Memorial service will be held on July 20, 2007 at 3: 30 p.m., in Dovercourt Baptist Church at New Horizons, 1140 Bloor Street West at Dufferin. Instead of flowers, we invite you to make donations to either United Nations Children's Fund Canada, 2200 Yonge Street, Toronto M4S 2C6 or to the Wilkie Fund at New Horizons Tower, 1140 Bloor St. West, Toronto M6H 4E6.

CATTO, Barbara Jean (née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON)
With great sadness, we announce the death of our Mom, Jean CATTO, who passed away quietly at home, surrounded by her children, on Tuesday, July 24, 2007.
Born on May 14, 1931, Mom grew up in Port Credit, Ontario. Following graduation from the University of Toronto in 1952, Mom married our Dad, James Arthur CATTO on June 26, 1954.
Although Port Credit was home, Mom's heart was in Muskoka where she and Dad spent many magical seasons. After our Dad died in 1984, Mom moved north to Muskoka in 1986. For 15 years the cottage, the lake, the mergansers, the white pines and the beautiful rocks of Muskoka provided a sanctuary and served as a welcoming refuge for her far-flung kids and many other family members and Friends.
In 2001, Mom moved west to Victoria, British Columbia to be closer to kids and grandkids, and her new view of the Olympic Mountains across the waters of the Juan de Fuca provided much comfort. We feel very fortunate that following a short illness, Mom was able to spend her final days at home, surrounded by all of her children, close family and Friends.
Mom will be sadly missed by her kids: Joanne, of North Yorkshire, England; Babs, of Victoria, British Columbia; and Steve, of Fort Simpson, Northwest Territories. Also grieving her passing are sons-in-law, Colin GRIFFITH and David VERNON, her grandchildren Ben, Andrew, Jack and Julia, her sister Peggy ELLIOT/ELLIOTT of North Carolina, and so many other dear family and Friends.
Please help us celebrate Mom's life during a memorial service to be held, on Saturday, August 25, 2007 at 2 p.m. at Skinner and Middlebrook, 128 Lakeshore Road, Port Credit, Ontario, with a reception to follow.
At Mom's request, we thank you for donations to: Victoria Hospice, 1952 Bay Street, Victoria, British Columbia, V8R 1J8.

Tourist dies after attack by panhandlers
By Matthew TREVISAN, Page A1
A tourist to Toronto succumbed to his injuries on the weekend after being attacked by an enraged gang of panhandlers in a downtown neighbourhood.
Four panhandlers already facing several assault charges will likely see those charges upgraded after Ross HAMMOND, of St. Catharines, died of his injuries Saturday, police say.
Councillor Michael THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said yesterday that panhandling in Toronto is "essentially out of control."
It has now come to a point, he said, where an innocent person has died.
"I'm saddened obviously to hear that it's come to this," said Mr. Thompson (Ward 37, Scarborough Centre), who was attacked by a panhandler in Nathan Phillips Square in April, 2006.
"It's not unexpected. I think it will happen again if nothing is done."
The city is in the midst of a pilot project to study aggressive panhandling. However, the project doesn't cover the area near Trinity Bellwoods Park, where Mr. HAMMOND was stabbed.
Mr. HAMMOND reportedly underwent several operations before dying early Saturday morning after receiving multiple stab wounds during an altercation at about 12: 30 a.m. Thursday.
Toronto police said Mr. HAMMOND and a friend were walking west on Queen Street West toward Niagara Street when two men and two women in their early 20s approached them and asked for money.
They refused, and a verbal confrontation quickly turned into a physical melee. Mr. HAMMOND, 32, was stabbed in the chest and back, and some of the accused also received minor stab wounds.
One witness said he saw one person sprinting across Queen Street with a knife in his hand. He reportedly attempted to get away by jumping onto a moving taxi, which was left bloodied, in full view of two streetcars.
Reached yesterday at the couple's home in St. Catharines, Mr. HAMMOND's widow, Kara, said any family statement will be made through Toronto police.
"This is not a good time," she said.
Sergeant Tim BURROWS said he didn't expect the incident to affect how visitors view the city with respect to panhandlers.
"I would say 99 per cent of our panhandlers, though some could get aggressive in asking for money… know their place and what they're doing, and don't affect the majority of the public."
However, at Mayor David Miller's executive committee meeting in late May, restaurateurs said panhandlers routinely steal beer, food and tips from sidewalk patios. A downtown Tim Hortons owner told the committee she was left bleeding after she was slapped in the face by a "panhandler" she asked to leave her doughnut shop.
A two-month city pilot project in which city workers work with people panhandling between 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. in the area from Spadina Avenue to Jarvis Street, and from Yorkville Avenue to Queens Quay, concludes on September 30. A report to the executive committee is due in 2008.
When approached by panhandlers, the public shouldn't make eye contact and continue walking past them, Sgt. BURROWS said.
The four accused of no fixed address appeared in court Friday, but could be facing murder charges this week, police said.
On Friday, Sarah McDERMIT, 22, was charged with aggravated assault, assault causing bodily harm, assaulting a peace officer and obstructing a peace officer. Jeremy WOOLLEY, 21, was charged with aggravated assault, assault causing bodily harm and obstructing a peace officer. Nicole KISH, 21, was charged with aggravated assault and assault causing bodily harm, and Douglas FRESH, 22, was charged with aggravated assault.

MINETT, E. Everet (February 23, 1918-september 5, 2007)
Letting go when he was at peace, feeling the love of four generations of family. As a boy and a young man, Everet exhibited extraordinary gifts. He was a brilliant student. He attended University of Toronto Schools where he excelled in classics, languages, science, and music. He later studied math, physics, and chemistry at University of Toronto (Trinity College) and subsequently did graduate work in physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. At age 8, Everet assumed a large measure of family leadership when his father died. Everet discovered his perfect love at age 15 when he saw Alice Caroline PARKER as an angel in a Christmas pageant at St. George's Church in Guelph, Ontario. They were married in 1941 and raised a family of 5 children as they traveled with extended stays in Norwalk, Connecticut, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, Rochester, New York, and Toronto, Ontario, where Alice currently lives. But Everet's and Alice's lifelong geographical passion was Cognashene, Georgian Bay. Along with his wife and young children, Everet fashioned a magical summer paradise. The 40's, 50', 60's, and 70's were exciting times for a gifted scientist in the business world. Everet played significant roles in the Manhattan Project (40's), in the development of RCA's ENIAC and Remington-Rand's UNIVAC computer systems (50's), in senior positions at Xerox (60's), and as director of University of Toronto's UTLAS (70's). In addition, during the 70's and 80's Everet and wife, Alice, worked side by side at their own import and distribution venture in Toronto, The Canadian Tumbler Company. Everet loved us all and was an inspirational mentor. He taught us about fulcrums and levers, and that anything was possible. His children will never forget that inspiration: Peggy WILLARD and her husband, Joe; Charles MINETT and his wife, Nina; Doug MINETT; Jane MINETT and her husband, David KEITH and Bill MINETT and his wife, Teresa. Everet's grandchildren and great-grandchildren will also miss their loving grandfather: Doug WILLARD and his wife, Lorri, and their son, Owen; Suzanne WILLARD; Charlie MINETT; Arthur MINETT; George MINETT; Elizabeth MINETT; Ben MINETT and his wife, Stephanie; Hannah MINETT, her husband, Mike VANSTONE, and their sons, Quinn and Oleh; Alice KEITH; Andy KEITH, Chris KEITH and his wife Sue FRASER, and their children, Ellie and Gillian; Karina KEITH and her husband Brian THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, and their children Sydney, Kira, and Adam; and Bill MINETT and his wife, Teresa, and their children, Everet, Wesley, and Sean.

Fatal stabbing shakes Toronto schools
Scarborough student slain at lunchtime
By TIMOTHY APPLEBY with reports from Unnati GANDHI, Jennifer LEWINGTON, Karen HOWLETT and Shawn McCARTHY, Page A1
Toronto -- In a lunch-hour confrontation that dispatched fresh shock waves across Toronto's school system, a 16-year-old Scarborough student was stabbed to death yesterday on a walkway leading from his high school.
Homicide detectives were hunting at least one suspect, seen fleeing the crime scene at Winston Churchill Collegiate Institute in a speeding car, and offered little insight into why the youth - identified by CTV News last night as Denesh MURUGIAH - had been killed.
Suspicion, however, immediately fell on a long-simmering rivalry between Tamil factions, whose animosity is believed responsible for a firebombing and a stabbing in the same neighbourhood in April.
What was certain was that the teen's death came just four months after the shooting death of teenager Jordan MANNERS in a high school on the other side of the city. And, moreover, it had the hallmarks of being planned.
"My Friends told me they saw the victim standing there when two guys came up behind him and said, 'Do you want to do this now?' recounted Ajay MANGARA, 18, who lives a few doors from the school, near Lawrence Avenue and Kennedy Road.
"Then they saw the guy screaming on the ground, 'Help me, help me.' "
The teen was stabbed several times in the stomach and showed no vital signs when paramedics responded to the 12: 05 p.m. call. He died soon after in Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.
Word on the street is that the killing stemmed from "Tamil reprisals," Mr. MANGARA said, echoing the opinion of a Lawrence Avenue pizza parlour operator that caters to many Winston Churchill pupils.
If so, it is not the first time police attention has been drawn to a Tamil-based gang conflict, loosely spread across half a dozen Scarborough schools.
Students milling around the collegiate in the bright sunshine yesterday seemed to know little about the victim, a new arrival in his second week of school, and some appeared strikingly unaffected.
As television cameras hovered, several urged their Friends, "Don't snitch, don't talk."
Yesterday's killing was Toronto's 57th of 2007 - 11 more than had occurred at the same time last year.
The principal suspect is thought to be a male with brown skin, 17 or 18 years old, about 5 foot 5, wearing black jeans, a black zip-up hoodie and a bandana covering his face.
Also sought is a light blue Honda, probably a mid-1990s Civic, in which the killer or killers are believed to have fled.
Whether any of them also attended Winston Churchill was unknown.
But 41-year-old floor installer Jim NIKOLAKAKOS, an alumnus who has lived close to the walkway for most of his life, said the school has become markedly rougher in recent years and that tensions were often evident.
"There's a lot of rivalry going on in the school - kids from this school, kids from other schools - they get together in little gangs and it's all, 'You said this, you said that,' " he said.
"The whole school has changed; inside there's graffiti all over the place, it's not kept up. There's no respect any more for anything… Things have changed."
Others familiar with the sprawling 1,200-student school disagreed.
Jessica COPELAND, 19, was a student for five years and wept yesterday as she arrived home to learn what had taken place almost on the doorstep of her Flora Drive home.
"I just can't believe something like this would happen at Churchill it was a really good school for me, the teachers were nice," she said.
"There were incidents, yeah, but they were really contained and personally I never saw anybody with any weapons, not in five years. Nothing ever got out of hand like this."
Toronto Police Service Inspector Kathryn MARTIN said much the same.
"I'm very familiar with the neighbourhood, I've spent 13 years working in 41 Division and this is a very good school… so I'm thinking this is an incident unrelated to the school itself."
Winston Churchill, however, is adjacent to a community centre that last year installed closed-circuit cameras because of fights. And in the past, local councillor Michael THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON has asked nearby retailers not to sell knives.
Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said of yesterday's homicide that he was "not shocked but saddened."
Gerry CONNELLY, director of education at the Toronto District School Board, denied rumours that the victim had been transferred to Winston Churchill because of behavioural problems.
In fact, she said, the teen was a new student because he and his family had moved into the Lawrence and Kennedy area from Don Mills.
"I can't speak to behavioural issues, but he was not a transfer student," she said.
The fatal stabbing nonetheless reignited the issue of safe schools, which erupted in May after 15-year-old Jordan MANNERS was shot to death at his school in the Keele and Finch area.
As police quizzed witnesses: at nearby 41 Division yesterday, Detective Sergeant Gary GRINTON of the homicide squad alluded to Jordan's death, in which two 17-year-olds have been charged with first-degree murder, and appealed for public help.
"Do the right thing, come forward, man up," he urged the suspect.
Liberal Leader Dalton McGuinty commented on the stabbing during a campaign stop in Markham, Ontario, last night. "As Premier, and maybe more importantly just as a dad, I wanted to express my deepest sympathies to the family and Friends of this young man who lost his life today in a senseless tragedy," he said.
Progressive Conservative Leader John Tory described the homicide as symptomatic of a larger problem - the Liberal government's alleged failure to crack down on violent crime.
"We simply let this kind of thing go on," Mr. Tory said. "We simply have to deal with this kind of crime and the causes of this kind of crime."

Philanthropist Funded Breast Cancer Research
By Staff, Page S10
Toronto. -- Audrey CAMPBELL, sister of the late businessman Kenneth THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and the last surviving child of newspaper proprietor and media owner Roy THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, died in hospital yesterday after a brief illness.
In October of 2004, Ms. CAMPBELL and her three daughters made what The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation in Toronto called a "transformational" gift of $25-million to breast cancer research. In recognition of the donation, the hospital renamed its facility the Campbell Family Institute for Breast Cancer Research at Princess Margaret Hospital.
The donation - Canada's largest private gift to the cause of breast cancer research - propelled the institute toward the forefront of such research worldwide and enabled it to dramatically increase the number of principal investigators to 12 from five, and boost research staff to 150.

Realist created iconic painting, found wide appeal
He was at odds with abstract expressionism and found the confidence to follow his instincts, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S10
As an artist, Ken DANBY's work was loved more by the people than it was revered by the critics. Although his works were bought by museums, he found his best, most rewarding and lasting appeal among private collectors and purveyors of popular culture. A superb draftsman and a prodigious and prolific artist of his own time, he was a realistic painter who reflected quotidian events, natural landscapes and athletic prowess to mass audiences, rather than an abstract expressionist who created troubling, edgy canvasses for an intellectual elite.
"His way of doing things was not in the wind, and that immediately interested me," said Walter Moos of Gallery Moos, the first major Canadian dealer to take Mr. DANBY on in the early 1960s. "I think he will finally get the appreciation in this country which it merits - I'm talking from museum officialdom. His artistic legacy is immense."
Kenneth Edison DANBY, who was born in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, the year after the Second World War ended, was the younger son of M.G. Edison DANBY, an assessment commissioner, and his wife Gertrude (BUCKLEY.) At first it seemed that his older brother Marvin was the artistic one; Ken certainly always credited him with inspiring his own early attempts.
Ken attended Cody Public School, where he became known as the school artist. By the time he was in Grade 6, he had won first prize in the school hobby show, was regularly creating murals for special events and was talking about a career as an artist. He graduated to Sault Technical and Commercial High School and then the Sault Collegiate Institute, where he won a high-school poster contest when he was 16. Art was a major part of his life, but not the only one - he joined the air cadets and spent much of his free time hiking and canoeing.
At 18, he enrolled in the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, where one of his teachers was Group of Seven member J.E.H. Macdonald. Other students called him Vincent because of his goatee and the fact that he was a loner who seemed to be obsessive about drawing and painting. "I was intense and almost fanatical about drawing and did hundreds of studies, mostly in pen, during my first year," he told his biographer, art critic Paul Duval.
Mr. DANBY was at odds with Ontario College of Art and Design, mostly because he was a realist painter and the school was interested in design and experimentation. Abstract expressionism, which had become wildly popular in the United States after the Second World War, and the colour field and pop art styles that it spawned, were about as artistically distanced from his preferred precise figurative works as Vancouver is from Toronto. Frustrated and disenchanted, he quit art school in 1960 after completing his second year and went home for the summer to work as a set designer at a local television studio. He returned to Toronto in the fall and immersed himself in the coffee-house culture of Toronto's Yorkville district, while taking on a succession of stop-gap jobs: painting sets for CFTO television studios in Kleinburg setting up window displays for D'Allaird's, a chain of women's clothing stores; and working as art director for the Mariposa Folk Festival, designing all its posters, advertisements and brochures.
He landed a full-time job doing layout and illustrations for the now defunct Toronto Telegram in 1961. About the same time, he had his first solo exhibition of 13 abstract and non-objective paintings at the Pollock Gallery in Toronto. The combination of the job, the gallery show and a visit to the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo - where he saw an exhibition of the work of U.S. realist painter Andrew Wyeth - gave him enough confidence to turn away from abstraction and follow his original instincts, concentrating on representational painting in a realist mode.
The next spring, he quit the Telegram to turn freelance. Still struggling six months later, he consulted art dealer Walter Moos, who agreed to become his dealer, an arrangement that lasted for the next three decades. The following year, Mr. Moos showed him as part of a three-man exhibit at Gallery Moos. By now Mr. DANBY had found his palette and his medium. Using his black cat Kimbo as a model, he made a painting with a cloudless blue sky executed in egg tempera, a medium he would use many times and in many of his most successful paintings. The painting, Fur and Bricks, won the Jessie Dow Prize at the Spring Exhibition at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
After a summer painting on Manitoulin Island, Mr. DANBY had a one-man show at Gallery Moos and proved his commercial appeal when the work sold out on opening night. Prolific and industrious, he held an annual show at Gallery Moos for many years. Mostly, he continued to paint nature scenes in egg tempura, although he accepted a commission to create a portrait of Pierre Trudeau for a Time magazine cover in 1968 and began experimenting with silk-screening to produce multicoloured prints and serigraphs. He began showing and selling them in the early 1970s in Canada, Germany and the United States.
In 1972, Mr. DANBY created what many consider the iconic hockey painting. At the Crease shows a masked goalie crouched in the net, left hand outstretched, right hand clutching his stick. The anonymous player represents every goalie who has ever waited for a shot to test his or her mettle, but it also captures the tension of that moment when the arena goes silent and fans stop breathing as all become one with the solitary figure down on the ice. The painting is owned by a private Toronto collector.
At the Crease has such resonance that it has been widely reproduced in books and magazines. Indeed, Mr. DANBY's early artistic hero, Mr. Wyeth, saw the image in print some years after it was first exhibited at Gallery Moos and he wrote the artist a letter saying, "I think your painting, At the Crease, a terrifying and exciting picture." Some fans have insisted that the goalie is modelled on Ken Dryden, the former Montreal Canadiens netminder, but Mr. DANBY always refused to say, believing that the player should be whomever the viewer wishes him to be. As an indication of the painting's significance in popular culture, Mr. DANBY put the image on a hockey mask as a fundraiser for spinal cord research and it raised $15,100 (U.S.) at a charity auction on NHL.com in November, Although Mr. DANBY continued to use his trademark egg tempera, he never stopped working with other media. He designed a set of Olympic coins, he painted a series of Olympic athletes in watercolour, he made portraits and prints and he also turned to oil when he began to paint large canvases in his final decade. He received many honours, including the Order of Ontario and the Order of Canada.
Sunday, Mr. DANBY, his wife, Gillian, and some Friends arrived in Algonquin Park for a three-day canoe trip on North Tea Lake. Mr. DANBY was hoping to collect images of fall colours for a planned series of paintings when he suffered an apparent fatal heart attack and collapsed. After his party summoned help, an air ambulance arrived and lowered two paramedics to the lake before airlifting him to North Bay General Hospital.
It is tempting to imagine ironies both cruel and poetic in the death of Mr. DANBY, the realist, while canoeing in the same wilderness (although at a different lake) where expressionist landscape painter Tom THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON drowned 90 years ago. The coincidences and the metaphors may not bear serious scrutiny - they interpreted and represented nature in different ways - but both men loved the wilderness and were exploring its richness when they died suddenly and before their time, causing great shock and grief to their families, Friends and admirers.
Kenneth Edison DANBY was born in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, on March 6, 1940. He died in Algonquin Park on September 23, 2007, probably of a heart attack. He was 67. He leaves his second wife Gillian, his three sons and his extended family. Funeral arrangements are not yet complete.

Audrey CAMPBELL, 90 Philanthropist
Newspaper magnate's daughter left own legacy in health care, racing
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S8
A horse breeder, a philanthropist and a nurturer of family and Friends, Audrey CAMPBELL was the last surviving child of newspaper magnate Roy THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. Together with her three daughters, she gave $25-million to establish the Campbell Family Institute for Breast Cancer Research at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto. The gift "really was transformational because it was the largest private donation for breast cancer at that point and also because it helped to support the work of Doctor Tak MAK… and allowed him to grow his team and his research organization," said Paul ALOFS, president of the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, referring to the renowned cancer researcher.
Mrs. CAMPBELL's younger brother, Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, celebrated her generosity with a public tribute.
"From the time of my first memories, I have looked up to Audrey as my big sister, the person who, along with my parents, looked after me and always had my best interests at heart," he said. "She prefers a low profile and I'm sure all this recognition embarrasses her… [but] she has made me proud of her again."
Phyllis Audrey THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON was born in Toronto on July 6, 1917, the eldest child of Roy and Edna (IRVINE) THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. Her sister Irma (later BRYDSON) was born in 1918 (died 1966,) and her brother Kenneth in 1923 (obituary June 13, 2006).
Audrey's early years were far from luxurious - her father, the son of a barber, struggled to make enough money for food and rent. The THOMSONs moved to Ottawa in 1925, when she was 8, and to North Bay three years later. Her father worked as a travelling salesman before he paid $1 for a broadcasting licence, bought a 50-watt transmitter on three months credit and started his first radio station, CFCH, in North Bay. Soon, he also bought radio station CKGB in Timmins and then moved into print by acquiring the Timmins Daily Press in 1934.
Three years later, the family moved back to Toronto. Audrey, now 20, attended the University of Toronto and earned a bachelor of arts degree. After the Second World War, she met Queen's University engineering graduate Elwood CAMPBELL, later a high-school math and physics teacher. They married in 1947 and bought a three-bedroom bungalow in Port Credit, where they raised their three daughters, Linda, Gaye and Susan.
Despite her father's immense wealth from his North American and European newspaper interests and his stake in North Sea oil and gas, Mrs. CAMPBELL lived a quiet suburban life, immersed in family and her daughters' activities. While she attended meetings of Woodbridge, the family holding company, she was not involved in the running of the Thomson corporate empire. "I may have inherited my father's title and had many benefits conferred upon me in the business and social world, but Audrey is mind, heart and head of the family," Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said of his older sister in Mrs. CAMPBELL's two younger daughters were interested in riding ponies, which triggered her own interest in standardbred horses. She and her husband started small in the early 1970s, with a part ownership in a single animal. She found early success with horses Armbro Dallas and Arcane Hanover and eventually established the Lothlorien Equestrian Centre in Cheltenham, Ontario, an offshoot of her daughter Susan's own stable of hunters and jumpers called Lothlorien Farms. "Lothlorien" is the name of a forest in J.R.R. Tolkien's fictional Middle-earth.
Breeding and racing horses became an enduring passion for Mrs. CAMPBELL, who eventually had a stable of more than a dozen horses. In 2002, Red River Hanover, which she partly owned, won the $1.5-million prize for harness racing in Toronto. Three years later, Rocknroll Hanover won the Breeders Crown Race at New Jersey's Meadowlands Racetrack.
In 2004, Mrs. CAMPBELL and her daughters decided to invest in health care in a focused way, rather than just making a general donation to the system. They researched where their money might have the most impact and decided to support the work of Doctor MAK because they realized that his work on cancer cells would have far-reaching consequences in breast cancer, but other types of malignancies as well.
Phyllis Audrey CAMPBELL was born in Toronto on July 6, 1917. She died of metastasized melanoma in Toronto Western Hospital on September 23, 2007. She was 90. Predeceased by her husband, Elwood, she leaves her three daughters, 10 grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and extended family.

Teen tried to leave strict family
Father now faces murder charge
By Omar EL AKKAD and Kenyon WALLACE, Page A1
Aqsa PARVEZ was largely estranged from her family and sleeping away from home in recent days. The 16-year-old's Friends said she returned to her home in Mississauga on Monday only to collect her belongings.
Shortly afterward, she was taken to hospital, where she died early yesterday morning - leaving Friends grief-stricken and igniting a public debate on religious extremism in Canada.
Her father, 57-year-old taxi driver Muhammad PARVEZ, is charged with murder. Her brother, 26-year-old Waqas PARVEZ, is charged with obstructing police.
Ms. PARVEZ's Friends described the Grade 11 student at Applewood Heights Secondary School as someone who was drawn to Western culture even as her family adhered to a devout form of Islam. Friends paint a picture of a hardworking and cheerful girl who loved dancing, fashion and photography - interests that often clashed with her strict home environment.
"Aqsa was always trying to get us to go shopping with her," schoolmate Dominiquia HOLMES- THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said. "We were supposed to go to the mall together today."
Last week, Ms. PARVEZ temporarily moved in with a friend from school.
"She said she wasn't getting along well with her family and that things weren't right," said Trudy LOOBY, the mother of one of Ms. PARVEZ's Friends, Alisha. " When she was here, she was very happy."
Ms. LOOBY said she told Ms. PARVEZ to inform her parents about where she was staying. "She notified me that the school was aware of where she was staying and that that was okay," the mother said.
During her stay, Ms. LOOBY said, Ms. PARVEZ didn't wear the hijab, a head scarf that Friends said was a hot topic within her family.
Krista GARBUTT remembers walking down the street with Ms. PARVEZ earlier this year, when the two of them spotted Ms. PARVEZ's brother walking toward them. Panicking, the teenager quickly fumbled for her head scarf, trying to put it on. "There were times when we'd be walking down the street and she'd see her brother and she wouldn't be wearing her hijab and she'd have to put it on," Ms. GARBUTT said. "She said, 'He'll kill me, he'll kill me.' I said, 'He's not going to kill you,' but she said, 'Yeah, he will.' And nobody believed it."
On Monday morning, Peel Regional Police responded to a 911 call from a man who said he had just killed his daughter. When officers arrived at a single-family detached home on Longhorn Trail, they found Ms. PARVEZ suffering from life-threatening injuries. She was taken immediately to Credit Valley Hospital and later transferred in critical condition to the Hospital for Sick Children, where she died.
Peel police said the Crown is waiting to decide whether Mr. PARVEZ should be charged with first- or second-degree murder, pending a police investigation. Although police would not elaborate on the ongoing homicide investigation, the difference between laying a first- or second-degree murder charge often rests on proving that the killing was premeditated.
Ms. GARBUTT said the teenager went home on Monday to collect her belongings, at which point her father "basically went ballistic."
For weeks before, Ms. PARVEZ had been living something of a double life, Friends said.
"She wanted peace with her family," Alisha LOOBY said. "She wanted to make them happy but she wanted to be herself at the same time, and there's nothing wrong with that."
A makeshift memorial is already in place at Applewood Heights, full of mementoes and messages left by grieving students.
"Aqsa was honestly the brightest girl around. She had the biggest smile and was the happiest person in school. She loved to dance and take pictures," one student wrote.
Across Canada, the killing has taken on larger proportions. On call-in shows and websites, many have used the incident as part of a wider indictment of fundamentalist Islam. One Canadian conservative blogger suggested Canadians boycott taxicabs driven by Muslims.
In a statement yesterday, the Canadian Council on American-Islamic Relations called on Canadians of all faiths to address issues of domestic abuse, and called for "the strongest possible prosecution" of those responsible for Ms. PARVEZ's killing.
Trudy LOOBY, who let Ms. PARVEZ stay at her home last week, said she now wishes the teen had not left.
"I was feeling that whatever it was she was dealing with at home was a bit too personal to involve me in," Ms. LOOBY said. "I wish she would have stayed longer, that's all. It's a sad waste of life."

THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Catharine (1915-2007)
On December 5, 2007 Catharine left this world to join her much loved husband Rhys. With support of daughters Carol and Brenda (and her husband Barry), the help of kind caregivers, wonderful neighbours and the Grace in home Palliative Care Program, Catharine achieved her wish to die in her own home. Her final years were enhanced by her loyal canine companion Mandy.
Catharine was a devoted friend, enjoying an active social life with many Friends and neighbours. One needed to book early if you wanted to go to a movie or lunch. The Leafs, Argos and golf have lost an avid fan. Catharine and sister-in-law Aileen kept the rest of us up to date on all the scores.
Catharine will be remembered by her seven grandchildren, Cathy CRAVEN (John), Nancy CLARK, David CLARK, Karen Clark LE POOLE (Chris.) Michael, Christopher (Jennifer) and Rebecca YOUNG-as the quiet, strong, determined lady that they loved and respected.
The addition of great-grandchildren Julianna, Joshua, and Jasper brought Catharine much pleasure. She anxiously waited for the birth of the newest great-grandchild Finn.
Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners with smashed carrots, apple pie and dingle cake, will all evoke good memories of family times together.
Nana you will live on as Cathariine the Great our beloved Mother and Nana whose quiet nature, and sound ethics have endured life's many tests. You have set the bar high through the example of your life. We are proud of you Nana. We aspire to make you proud of us. We will honour your wishes-we will remember and miss you, but we will let you go.
At Catharine's request cremation and burial have taken place.

A fine athlete he enjoyed football, hiking, scuba-diving, skiing and golf at the Oakville Golf Club, badminton and tennis at the Oakville Club; Doug was also an avid swimmer at his beloved Balsam Lake and in their condo pool in Florida. Dad first took up tennis in his mid-forties at Long Point and enjoyed the sport so much he formed a committee and funded the construction of a new second court in the centre lands. His enthusiasm for the sport and initiative led to the existence of two excellent courts enjoyed by the cottagers extensively.
