DAS5 - Video documentary release MAY 25th of this year marks the fifth anniversary of the dropping of all
charges - against the former accused - in the still controversial vehicular
homicide case involving the death of off-duty Toronto bike messenger Darcy
Allan Sheppard.

The long-promised DAS5 documentary, set for global release at this event,
will attempt to explore in depth for the first time, much of the information
- contained in the Toronto Police Service investigation - that was buried
when criminal charges were dropped on May 25, 2010.

Again, the goal here is one of public education as to what actually happened
on Bloor Street the night Sheppard died, and how the unique handling of the
case has left so many Ontarians satisfied with so very different a story.

Additional event details to follow.

A2A: Ride from the Arctic to Antarctica for Alzheimer's Research I realize that many meritorious fund raising walking, running and cycling
events come to your attention.

Nevertheless, if you have been in any way touched by this relentless disease
through family, friends or acquaintances I invite and seek your sponsorship
for this effort to add to the Alzheimer's Society research program. All
donations large and small are appreciated but for those mathematically
inclined 1 cent/km = $200 in research support. For my many past OPG
colleagues and present retirees who sponsored my Big Brother bowlathon
efforts over many years I renew my challenge - I will personally match the
largest donation.
