    letters A Jordanian soldier poses with the injured peacekeeper Mark Bourque, who died shortly after this photo was taken. crossing jordan The circumstances surrounding the death of retired RCMP sergeant Mark Bourque (?Mission to hell,? Summer issue) seemed unclear when the news first hit us back in December. But Toro has done a tremendous job of exposing the shameful reaction of the UN, and how Mark?s life could have been saved. The powerful journalistic work of your reporter Christopher Shulgan finally gives us a clearer picture of what really happened. It was a heart-breaking thing to read, as Mark was a beloved member of the RCMP family in Quebec, but Toro must be commended for its journalistic excellence. Thank you, Mr. Shulgan, for getting at the truth. frederic serre, communications officer, quebec mounted police members? association I read with interest your article about the death of retired RCMP sergeant Mark Bourque. Over the last ten years, my wife and I have traveled to Haiti over thirty times on medical mission trips. While I cannot comment on specific UN troop philosophy and planning, your article rekindled memories of our experience with the Jordanian troops. On one occasion, travelling to St. Ard, north of Port-au-Prince on Route Nationale, we came upon an accident near where Jordanian troops were stationed. My friend and I exited the bus, approached the site, and were met by a young Jordanian soldier holding what I presumed was an M-16. We stopped to turn around when an English-speaking soldier hailed us to come back. He asked if we were doctors. We told him we were dentists, and he insisted we follow him. As we rounded a box truck I actually ran into another Jordanian with an assualt rifle ?Christopher Shulgan?s powerful story gives us a clearer picture of what really happened in Haiti? who was guarding the injured, as they were being loaded onto the truck by local people. The fact that none of the soldiers were helping was evident as they secured the perimeter with their guns. It seems the Jordanians would not touch the injured Haitians. The commander then turned to us and asked, ?Are they dead?? as he pointed to two bodies lying in puddles along the side of the road. All of this occured within a quarter-mile of the Jordanian compound. These people could have been taken there for treatment. Again, it could be UN policy, and Haiti is an explosive country. Never having been in the military I cannot judge what seeing death and dying with regularity does to your psyche; but the lack of compassion was certainly surprising. timothy j. alford, d.d.s., m.s.d., via e-mail the tipping point While I can empathise with Chris Nuttall- Smith?s decision to have himself circumcised (?Snip decisions,? Summer issue), this in no way justifies the wholesale circumcision of male babies. He made the decision when he was old enough to decide for himself. This is not the case when parents make the decision to circumcise their infant sons. They should have no jurisdiction over their sons? bodies in non-life-threatening cases, and should have no right to permanently alter another human?s body in an attempt to forestall the potential problem of a too tight foreskin. If this kind of reasoning were justified we might as well go ahead and remove babies? tonsils, appendixes, and adenoids. bill newman, toronto I?m a thirty-year-old intact male who has had nothing but joy with what I was born with and what I deserved to keep until I was old enough to decide for myself (which, as you can tell, I?ve decided to keep). Chris Nutall-Smith trots out the old stereotype that a circumcised penis is cleaner without noting the obvious: The washed, intact penis will have a scent, much like the washed vagina. If there?s no scent on a washed circumcised penis, that just proves it?s become the dried-out external organ it was severely altered to become. And to me, that?s not very pleasing. chris mccaw, via e-mail Thanks to Chris Nuttall-Smith for illuminating the reality-bending rhetoric of the anti-circumcision crusaders. His own experience provides him the only true basis for a comparison of the pros and cons. From my similar experience, I share his conclusions whole-heartedly, and to women, I say, Do your sons a favour and don?t be swayed by anti-circumcision propaganda. robert garrett, vancouver Please send letters, along with your daytime phone number and mailing address, to letters@toromagazine.ca or 119 Spadina Avenue, Suite 502, Toronto, Ontario, M5V 2L1.

    contributors MIGUEL JACOB PHOTOGRAPHER According to Miguel Jacob (?The style squad,? page 90), guys are simple creatures. ?Just talk to them about boxing and UFC, and you have their undivided attention.? The Peruvian-born, Toronto-based photographer, who has shot for Fashion and The Look, praised the models (who had worked on campaigns for Burberry and Dolce & Gabbana) in this month?s fashion shoot for their professionalism, with one caveat. ?The tricky part was getting them to stop playing Xbox on a giant screen in the studio lobby.? BROOKE LOCKYER WRITER Blame Toro for introducing Brooke Lockyer to the surreal world of strippercize (?Pole position,? page 55). Her mother did. ?When she heard about my first undercover assignment for the story, my mom said, ?You?re doing what?? ? Lockyer, a Toronto-based writer and former Toro editorial intern whose previous employers include Paper and Esquire, singled out the lap-dance workshop for its sheer entertainment value. ?I think I gave my abs the best workout in that one, from laughing so hard.? CHRISTOPHER STEVENSON PHOTOGRAPHER Christopher Stevenson is a busy man. When asked about his shoot in this month?s Toro, Stevenson was befuddled. ?I shot fashion for this issue, right?? Good guess, Chris (see page 43). When he?s not taking the photos that regularly appear in Toro?s Wanted section (and elsewhere), the Torontobased photographer is working for many publications, including Toronto Life, Strut, enRoute, and Maclean?s. CHRISTOPHER SHULGAN WRITER Christopher Shulgan?s story in our Summer issue on the controversy surrounding the death of retired RCMP sergeant Mark Bourque in Haiti made headlines across the country; but Shulgan was initially apprehensive about the graphic pictures accompanying the article. ?I felt gratified by the fact that Bourque?s family agreed that we were right to publish the photos.? In this issue, Shulgan examines a Nova Scotia man who hunted down and killed a pair of convicted sex offenders (?Marshall?s law,? page 80). 10 TORO SEPTEMBER 2006 ADAM HILBORN ILLUSTRATOR ?I?m driven by bizarre-looking people,? explains Adam Hilborn, this month?s Graphic Details (page 26) illustrator. He also draws inspiration for his magazine work from vintage signs glimpsed while travelling. ?Los Angeles is Mecca for hand-painted banners, advertising everything from liquor and smokes to balloon shops.? In addition to his fondness for quirky illustration jobs, the Toronto-based Hilborn, one half of the graphics firm Parishil, has co-created company logos and shoe designs. PATRICK SISAM WRITER Patrick Sisam didn?t have any trouble getting Elizabeth Banks (page 74) to open up and talk about her private life. ?I reminded her that we?d met once before, and all of a sudden, she was talking about giving Steve Carell a lap dance.? Though Sisam contributes to both Toro and The Globe and Mail, he?s also just finished writing his second feature film. ?It?s a twisted tale about precocious teens doing copious amounts of crystal meth.? YUKO SHIMIZU ILLUSTRATOR ? I don?t have a foot fetish,? says Yuko Shimizu, Toro?s new sex-column illustrator, ?but I believe all women have a shoe fetish.? To draw sexy footwear for this month?s column (?Heel, boy!? page 68), the New Yorkbased artist (whose clients include MTV, Rolling Stone, and The New York Times) went online to research the most notorious brand in women?s footwear, Manolo Blahnik shoes. ?I am proud of myself for not pressing the button that says ?Buy Now.? ? KEVIN GRAY WRITER Before travelling to the Libyan Sahara to write about eclipse chasers (?Totally out of sight,? page 60), Kevin Gray never gave much thought to the moon. ?I figured, what?s the big deal?? says the New York-based senior writer for Cond Nast Portfolio, who has covered, among other things, the sex-slave trade in Romania, and drug shootouts in Mexico. ?But after hanging out with these guys, their obsession wears off on you. Now wherever I go in the world and look up in the sky, I see the moon and I feel like it?s following me.? WWW. TOROMAGAZINE. CA
