Police

Arrests made in connection to violent home invasions Two female young offenders and one man have been arrested in connection with a series of violent home invasions in October. Police are also looking for two more men in connection with the incidents. Police said three men confronted residents of a home near Weston Road and Eglinton Avenue at gunpoint Oct. 16, stealing money and electronics. They also went to another unit in

the home and when the tenant refused to open the door, a shot was fired through the door, hitting him. The men ran off after taking items from the home. The tenant suffered serious injuries. The following day, police allege a man was accosted at gunpoint on Clearview Heights and robbed of cash and an iPhone. A short time later that evening, tenants of a Clearview Heights

home were held up at gunpoint and robbed of cash and jewelry. Police said the robbers then approached a 17-year-old boy on the street and forced him, at gunpoint, to knock on the door of a Clearview Heights home. When the occupants opened the door, the men forced their way inside, pistol-whipping one man and stealing cash. One occupant was then forced out of the home and forced to

knock at another house on the street. The men again pushed their way in and stole cash and electronics before forcing a 16-year-old boy in the home to go with them in their vehicle. Police later found the vehicle abandoned on Bicknell Avenue. The 16-year-old managed to escape. Two girls, aged 15 and 16, have been charged with gun-related offences. Their names cannot

canadian idol: Quebec Liberal MP and federal Liberal Party leadership candidate Justin Trudeau, right, greets Leo Baeck Jewish Day School students Ami Seeligsohn and Avalon Nisenbaum Tuesday morning while on a visit to the York school. Trudeau took a tour of the Arlington Avenue school and he stayed to answer questions posed by grades 6 to 8 students. The school held its official opening on Sept. 10, after taking over the former Arlington Middle School site from the Toronto Disctict School Board.

Argument led to fatal shooting at Weston and Denarda ANDREW PALAMARCHUK apalamarchuk@insidetoronto.com Leonard Charles Fullerton had marijuana, crack cocaine and a quantity of cash on him when he was gunned down outside a Weston Road pizza shop Oct. 30, police say. “Certainly having a variety of drugs and having money leads me to suspect that he may have been dealing drugs in that area,” Det. Sgt. Frank Skubic told reporters Friday during a news conference at police headquarters. “Our information indicates that while he is not a carded member of any gang, by way of association and affiliation with known gang members, he, I guess, places himself in a high-risk category.” Fullerton, 26, nicknamed Chris or Curls, got into an argument with a man at the southeast corner of Weston and Denarda Street, just outside Weston Pizza and Wings, around 4:20 p.m. Police haven’t determined what the dispute was about.

Photo/courtesy

Police released an image of this car, caught on a cruiser’s in-car camera, heading south on Weston Road at Locust Street.

“During that argument, Mr. Fullerton walked away. The suspect produced a handgun and started to shoot at Mr. Fullerton, striking him several times,” Skubic said. “Mr. Fullerton stumbled towards the corner, fell to the sidewalk, mortally wounded.” Fullerton was taken to Sunnybrook hospital where he died. An autopsy performed the next day revealed

the cause of death was a perforating gunshot wound to the torso. “This was a public execution of a defenceless and unarmed man,” Skubic said. “At least five shots were fired by the suspect.” One bullet ended up in the kitchen of an apartment on Weston. No one was hurt by the stray bullet. The gunman fled east on Denarda on foot and then left the area in a small silver four-door car. “Within an hour of the murder, a telephone tip was received at 12 Division reporting that the suspected shooter was seen entering a vehicle described as a silver Acura,” said Skubic, adding the tipster provided “some other critical information that I’m not going to disclose at this time.” The tipster did leave his name though police have been unable to get back in touch with him. “I would like very much to speak with you to expand upon the information you provided,” Skubic said in an appeal to the tipster. “You’ve pro-

vided us with good direction...Please contact me at homicide directly.” Police have released a video and still image of a “vehicle of interest” in the murder. The images came from the in-car camera system of a police cruiser that was responding to the shooting call. The wanted car was last seen heading south on Weston. Skubic said police have interviewed “many people” and have received “a good level of information and co-operation” from the community. “That has assisted us in understanding the dynamics of what happened,” he said. “What remains unclear is why this occurred and who is responsible.” Fullerton lived with his mother just north of the murder scene and was the father of an eight-year-old girl and a two-year-old boy. He had a minor criminal record, police said. Skubic wants to trace Fullerton’s final movements. Fullerton left his home shortly after noon Tuesday and

went to a gym in the area. “We’re having some difficulty establishing exactly what his activities were from the time he went to the gym to the time he was killed,” Skubic said. On Saturday, police re-canvassed the businesses and homes in the area of the murder. “The investigation into this murder will be solved,” Skubic said. “I believe firmly that the killer is known in this area or at least frequents this area on a regular basis.” The suspect is black with a light complexion, about six-feet tall with a thin build and wore a dark hooded wool jacket. The homicide is not believed to be connected to a non-fatal double shooting on Falstaff Avenue that happened a few hours later. Anyone with information on the murder is asked to call Skubic at 416-808-7399, the 12 Division criminal investigations bureau at 416-808-1204 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477).

Keeping the memory alive I

s recognition of our veterans a case of “out of sight, out of mind?” It shouldn’t be, but it’s a question worth asking. When it comes to Remembrance Day observance, there has been a noticeable shift in recent years. And it’s an inevitable one. Fewer and fewer veterans from earlier conflicts such as the Second World War and the Korean War are with us. Given the passage of time, there is always a risk of the importance of such obserour view vances being diluted for the next generation. This can’t happen. Too Support for much has been sacrificed. But with the ongoing conflict in our veterans Afghanistan, in which Canadians are playing and have played a still strong significant role, we have fresh, contemporary examples of the struggles our veterans endure – both during and after they serve. There is greater public awareness of post-battlefield conditions, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), that our veterans must cope with. The good news is Canadians have strong opinions on these issues. A recent Nanos survey says 94 per cent of Canadians believe we have an obligation to ensure modern veterans find meaningful employment after they’ve finished their service. Another 88.9 per cent believe all veterans, whenever and wherever they served, should be honoured on Remembrance Day, even though 82.1 per cent of Canadians think primarily of veterans of the First World War and the Second World War on Remembrance Day. And, 51.8 per cent believe the support veterans receive for conditions such as PTSD is inadequate. The survey was released by Commissionaires, an organization dedicated to ensuring “meaningful employment opportunities” for former members of the Canadian Forces and other organizations dedicated to safety and security. Issues such as employment opportunities for veterans aren’t necessarily front of mind in our collective consciousness. But they must be part of a growing realization that any investment in our country’s defence budget must take into greater consideration the effects – physical, mental, psychological – on those who serve our country. The survey results suggest we value the contributions of our veterans and believe more should be done for them. That’s good. Getting our voices heard to enable meaningful change for our modern veterans is the next step. Reach out to your Member of Parliament to make it known how you feel. While always remembering the sacrifices of the past, we must also ensure ongoing, stable support for our modern veterans. Toronto Community News is a division of Metroland Media Group Ltd.

To the editor: Re: ‘Shut Out: Increase in fees puts the squeeze on community groups in search of affordable space,’ Special Report, Oct. 25. Schools, playing fields, parks, libraries and community centres are all essential parts of our communities in Toronto. They belong to the citizens and are a part of what makes this city a healthy and safe place. The people of Toronto have already paid for these facilities, and we pay taxes so they will be available for any of us to use them when we need to. That’s why the special report matters to all of us. If we want to continue to have healthy communities all across Toronto, the people will have to speak up so politicians do not allocate our community resources only to those who have the ability to pay their ever-increasing fees.

November and poppies are now a perfect fit

I

don’t want to brag, but I feel like I’ve got the world by the tail. Well, maybe not the world exactly. The tail I’ve got a hold of is kind of kind of furry for the world. It could belong to my brother and sister-in-law’s basset hound, Spot, for all I know. But I digress. The point is, I couldn’t be better. Ever since November began, everybody keeps tossing compliments my way. Hey Jamie, looking good. Did you just get back from a long vacation? Hey Jamie, what’s that swagger all about? Are you seeing somebody? Hey Jamie, what’s up with that extra bounce in your step? Have you been working out? Are you eating better? Are you getting more beauty sleep? Did you spring for a new wardrobe? Did you switch barbers? Did you join Hair Club For Men? Have you called Jenny? Have you emailed Jenny? Have you

but seriously

jamie wayne

tweeted Jenny? Did Justin Bieber just make you his Facebook friend? I’ve heard ’em all. Truth be told, there’s no mystery as to why November has gotten off on the right foot for me. I’m doing one thing differently these days than I used to do at this time of year. For the first time, I’m wearing Remembrance Day poppies that don’t fall off. When I put a poppy on now it stays put. Last year at this time I wrote a column about how frustrated I was about losing poppies all the time. It seemed as soon as I affixed one, it vanished into thin air. That has always troubled me. Not that I minded

buying new poppies, mind you. I know the money goes to a good cause. But I wanted the poppies to remain in place so I could show my support to veterans, their families and the families of fallen soldiers; to let them know just how much I appreciated the sacrifices they made for me and the rest of the country. I mentioned in that piece the many pointers I’d received from friends about how to keep poppies stationary and a lot of you out there kindly took the time to write me offering your advice. The tip you mentioned most often was replacing the poppy stick pin with a Canadian flag lapel pin. That was my fave, so that’s the one I chose. For all those who suggested it, I am truly grateful. It has worked like a charm. My poppy doesn’t miraculously disappear anymore after I hang up my jacket

in the closet. My poppy doesn’t dematerialize when I bump into somebody on a crowded bus, streetcar or subway. My poppy doesn’t automatically evaporate the moment the wind picks up. And it’s still on my hockey jersey after a little jostling in the corners. It even remains motionless on my T-shirt after I stand on my head doing yoga. My poppy can handle anything now, no sweat. It’s one tough cookie. And I couldn’t be happier. So world, basset hounds or whatever it is I thought I had by the tail – don’t feel bad. I still love you. But, the fact is, I’m afraid it just doesn’t get any better than a Remembrance Day poppy that refuses to budge. n Jamie Wayne is a lifelong columnist, who takes writing very seriously. The topics?

Letter to the editor

Honour the fallen on Nov. 11 To the editor: There are over 5,800 Canadian soldiers who served in the First and Second World Wars resting at Prospect Cemetery. Many are in the designated areas under the Cross of Sacrifice with a plaque while others are buried with family plots but may still have the iconic headstone with the engraved maple leaf. That identical headstone can be found in many Commonwealth cemeteries throughout Europe as I witnessed when visiting the graves of Canadian soldiers buried in Ortona and Montecassino in Italy. There is no photo of the soldier on either the plaque or headstone but reading his name, his age, if it is stated, or even his date of death is enough to feel a deep sense of loss. Some soldiers were killed very close to Christmas, which makes the death all the more poignant. I noticed that many plaques and headstones are bare – not one flower or memorial candle to pay tribute to the sacrifice and memory. For those of us who live in the Davenport district, we need to be

reminded of how this community provided the highest number of soldiers per capita in Canada with respect to its population in the First World War. Davenport has gone down in history for this enormous contribution to the war effort. Thanks to the CEF Study Group and Bob Richardson, it was discovered that an Aboriginal soldier named Bertie Nakogee, who died in 1916, had an unmarked burial for 96 years at Prospect Cemetery. Richardson’s efforts and those of others enabled this soldier to be recognized, and family members and community celebrated this event with a memorial service on April 28. Clearly, preserving memory and history can still have a vibrant force in our community. On Remembrance Day, one meaningful way you can honour the memory of the soldiers lost in the wars, and that of the veterans who have come to pass, is by visiting the sections where fallen soldiers and veterans are buried in a cemetery. Lay a flower, light a candle or say a prayer in remembrance. Milena D’Amico

It’s never this obvious.

Breast cancer can be impossible to see or feel. Today more women survive the disease than ever before. Regular mammograms can lead to early detection and better treatment options, so make breast screening part of your health routine. Cancer screening sees what you can’t. Find out when it’s the right time for you to start screening at ontario.ca/screenforlife

Beautifying the neighbourhood: Members of the Weston-Mount Dennis community gather to celebrate the unveiling of a pair of murals at 1765-1775 Weston Rd. late last month. The murals were produced by local youth through an UrbanArts program. The project was initiated during a safety audit of the area conducted several months ago. Councillor Frances Nunziata reported that youth of the community identified where improvements and beautification measures could be made.

Call 416-298-2626 for a mammogram appointment.

Obituary

Lifetime teacher remembered with love and respect >>>from page 1 Brother award by former governor general Jeanne Sauve. After retiring, he was involved with Ontario’s association for retired teachers, serving as a district president, chair of the provincial travel committee and a senator. Wild also ran a photography business for three years and acted as a warden at Islington’s St. Matthew’s Anglican Church. He enjoyed teaching his grandchildren things like how to fish and how to turn a stick and a tin can into a shovel. Wild died Oct. 23 at the age of 93. His family and friends held a celebration of his life Oct. 29. “He lived his years to the fullest,” his daughter, Linda Lee, said in a eulogy to her father. Wild was born and raised in York, later moving to Etobicoke with his young family.

Walter Wild

He attended Silverthorn Public School and York Memorial Collegiate before going on to Toronto Normal School and the University of Toronto to study teaching. After graduating, Wild taught for two years in a one-room country school in Mount Albert about 45 kilometres north of Toronto. He was soon working for the York Township Board of Education, teaching at D.B. Hood and Silverthorn

public schools, serving as vice-principal at Roseland and Keelesdale public schools and going on to become principal at Cordella, Roseland and Kane Senior public schools. He also served as president of the York Township Principals’ Association. Former York SouthWeston MP Alan Tonks fondly remembered Wild as his Grade 7 teacher. He described him a Mr. Chips-types teacher, a disciplinarian who was loved and respected by his students. Tonks once found himself on the receiving end of discipline meted out by Wild and another teacher, George Condie. He and some other Grade 7 boys blocked up the washroom sinks and turned on the water a couple of times. However, the third time they tried the antic, Wild and Condie were waiting for them behind a door. The culprits got the strap,

‘His presence in the school was everywhere. He was in the hall, he was in the gym, he was in the classroom, he was on the field.’ – Alan Tonks, former student Tonks said laughing. Along with discipline, Wild also showed compassion and empathy to his students, Tonks added. A man with high expectations of everyone including himself, Wild threw himself into coaching school sports teams. “His presence in the school was everywhere. He was in the hall, he was in the gym, he was in the classroom, he was on the field and everybody felt his presence,” Tonks said. “He didn’t seem to be out of place with his calling. He was a lifetime teacher.” During the Second World War, Wild attended army basic training but was discharged due to a hernia.

In 1943, he married Ella, also a teacher. They had two children, Linda and David. The young family moved to Etobicoke in 1953. Lee said her parents loved travelling, jetting off to places such as England and the Balkans as well as enjoying cruises, an African safari and, in their 70s, climbing the Great Wall of China. Ella died in 2001 after 58 years of marriage. Their son, David, died in 2007. After his wife’s death, Wild developed a closer friendship and moved in with Margaret Condie, the widow of his former colleague George Condie. They enjoyed travelling together to England and

Cuba and sharing day trips together. Margaret Condie died about a year ago. “They really had a grand old time together,” Lee said. In a three-page essay about his life. Wild recounted his days both as a student and professional as well as memories of the York community. His recollections included bob sledding down Ewart Hill, Remembrance Day services at the legion, various sporting events and some student hijinks. “My dad enjoyed life to the fullest,” Lee said. ““He was a joker. He had those zinger lines. He should be remembered (for) his many friends. A great joker. He always had a smile and a twinkle in his eye and always came out with those zingers.” Wild is survived by Linda, her husband Dave, grandchildren Lindsay, Nicole, Steve and Rob and six greatgrandchildren.

Nicola Optical Boutique opens your eyes to proper eye care The average person abuses their eye contacts without realizing the serious repercussions. With an average life span of thirty wears, wearers often try to extend usage two times the amount recommended by Optometrists. Optician and owner of Nicola Optical Boutique, Giuseppe Barbieri, often finds people use unreliable, quick fix remedies to prolong usage with products like over the counter saline solutions. “Many people don’t realize that saline solution is not a disin-

fectant, it’s used for emergency storage of your contacts,” says Giuseppe. “You can cause infection to your eyes if you use it to prolong the use of contacts.” In an effort to try and save money on eye wear, people are going online to find deals. But, like a medical prescription, contacts should never be bought from an unreliable source. “Contac ts are a medical device. If you’re not fitted properly by an optometrist they can suction to your eyes and cause considerable damage

to your sight when removing them,” Giuseppe warns. “At Nicola Optical Boutique, we house a trusted Optometrist and make eye wear more affordable by not only matching but beating any price offered by any other store, guaranteed.” Nicola Optical Boutique, located at 1908 Weston Rd., has provided the community with high quality contact lenses, as well as trendy and classic eye wear since 1997. Visit the store to browse the new selec-

tion of glasses from Ray Ban, Baby Phat, Prada, Coach and Jason Wu, a popular fashion design for First Lady, Michelle Obama. Highly durable and fashion forward, Or Green glass wear is also available and made of 100 per cent titanium in 400 different colour combinations. Eye exams are covered by OHIP for people 20 years old and younger and 65 years old and older.

Love of football hurting Ford

I

s it fair to say we’re into a crisis of confidence in big municipal government in eastern Canada? Or if not government, then mayors? Montreal Mayor Gerald Tremblay lent some truth to this this week when he quit his job over allegations of corruption within his party, allegations he firmly denies. And here in Toronto... well, Rob Ford’s not resigning over corruption allegations. But there are a couple of bus-loads of commuters – who stood out in the rain last Thursday after their Finch Avenue buses were rerouted to provide shelter to Ford’s football team – who probably wish he would step down. The question for Mayor Ford is just what job he should quit. And really, the best thing he could do is follow Tremblay’s example and quit coaching football. As absurd as it sounds, the gridiron has been the root of much of Ford’s undoing.

THE CITY

david nickle

While in interviews, he’s claimed the biggest problems in his first two years have to do with reading and talking on the phone while driving, the biggest problem has been what also seems to be his greatest love. Pending a judge’s ruling, the mayor could lose his job over the way he comported himself around his football charity. In the meantime, it’s made him into a truant at council, as he leaves to coach his team at Etobicoke’s Don Bosco Catholic Secondary School while council and his committee deal with key city business. And now, this business with the TTC buses that were re-routed. As I write this, it’s unclear how exactly passengers ended

up being ordered off the buses so they could be rerouted. Ford says he didn’t do it. But it becomes a matter of appearances. Ford has shown in all sorts of ways that his team is a priority for him. At times, it seems it’s a bigger priority than his constituents. It may well be that this isn’t so. But it also shouldn’t appear so. That is something Tremblay understood as he resigned from office. Ford shouldn’t resign from office over his love of football. But he should recognize it has become more than a distraction from his day job. It has cumulatively destroyed confidence in his office. Football has been a demanding mistress for Ford, and he needs to call it off and renew his vows with the Torontonians who elected him. n David Nickle is the Guardian’s City Hall columnist.

Steeped in tradition The Canadian Cadet Program connects the past with the future This month, when remembering the brave veterans who have served our country in the past, take a moment to reflect on who will be their future. Thousands of youth across Canada currently participate

in the Cadet Program, the largest federally-sponsored youth program in Canada that includes the Royal Canadian Sea, Army and Air Cadets. It is a national program for young Canadians aged 12 to 18 who are interested in participating in a variety of fun, challenging and rewarding activities while learning about the sea, army and air activities of the Canadian Forces. Cadets are encouraged to become active, responsible members of their communities, making valuable contributions on a daily basis in terms of environmental, citizenship and community

activities. Cadets also learn valuable life and work skills such as teamwork, leadership and citizenship. Royal Canadian Sea Cadets learn about the naval and maritime environment by participating in a variety of activities on and off the water. Sea Cadets specialize in sailing, seamanship, shipboard life, naval communications, power boat handling, boat repair, and marine engineering. Selected senior cadets have the opportunity to attend international exchanges, to sail aboard a Tall Ship or participate in ship deployments aboard Canadian Navy and Coast Guard ships. The Royal Canadian Army Cadets appeal to teenagers craving exciting outdoor activities. Army cadets develop abilities in the use of map and compass, GPS technology, orienteering, first-aid, camping and survival skills, canoeing, abseiling, trekking, mountain biking, etc. As they

get more experienced, some will be selected for parachuting, white-water rafting and glacier climbing. They will also learn to become outdoor leaders. Royal Canadian Air Cadets participate in a variety of fun and challenging activities. The outdoor enthusiast will appreciate learning survival skills for flight crew. The athlete will appreciate physical education and recreation, including a variety of sporting activities like biathlon and Olympicstyle marksmanship. The artists will find their niche in the music program. The curious will appreciate the hands-on activities such as building model aircraft. The scholarly will appreciate an introduction to the various tools and technologies linked to aviation. The dreamers will appre-

ciate the evolution of technology and the advancements of the aerospace era, including the importance of Canadian participation. Select top senior cadets may even earn the chance to represent Canada on the world stage by participating in an international exchange. Most importantly, Air

Cadets aids in developing knowledge of Canadian history and democracy. The program focuses on social development, decision-making and leadership. As cadets acquire skills and knowledge, they pass it along to younger cadets. For more information on the Canadian Cadet Program, visit www.cadets.ca.
