Throughout his childhood and youth, Robert performed with the Toronto Children's Players, on radio, and the early days of television. He performed the second lead in an American production of No Time for Sargeants in London, England for 2 years, then began his lifelong career as a muralist in the restoration of Horace Walpole's house Strawberry Hill in Surrey, England.

Albert LIZOTTE
Businessman, innovator, renowned human resources motivator. Born October 20, 1936, in Clair, New Brunswick Died April 10, in Laval, Quebec, of cancer, aged 66.
By Claude CORMIERL Monday, October 6, 2003 - Page A20
Albert was always passionate about books. Perhaps this love for the printed word stemmed from his degree in classical studies. However, it was his interest in innovation and creativity that led to his first full-time position in the field of photography. Always in search of new and more realistic horizons, he quickly realized that opportunities in photography were limited and he moved on.
Arriving in Montréal in 1955, he started his Bell Canada career in 1957, serving first in general network operations, then in sales.
From the outset, it became obvious that Albert was a very gifted salesperson. Highly motivated, competitive, results-oriented, monthly quotas were surpassed as he set new sales records. In spite of being a very demanding and driven individual, he repeatedly demonstrated his dedication to teamwork in developing sales strategies and helping others in their professional development.
His professionalism and engaging personality resulted in his being promoted to sales manager, a position that he successfully maintained for many years.
In 1977, Albert became one of the founding members of Phone Power, a group dedicated to educating Bell clients in the art of using the telephone to increase sales, collect overdue accounts and provide customer service. Here Albert was in his element, having learned about the successful implementation of telemarketing strategies from a variety of specialized magazines in the United States.
At the end of the 1970s the growing competition on different Bell products and services incited Albert to start doing telemarketing trials within Bell Canada to sell the company's customers new telephone equipment and services.
Soon after, in 1980, Albert's burgeoning success resulted in his being asked to head up a new Bell telemarketing division. At the time he was assigned a mere three employees. Within a short few years the number of agents had risen to 90.
Speaking invitations and industry-specific conferences followed. Other telephone companies throughout Canada and France invited Albert to share his experience and success. Many wanted to share his vision and most wanted to emulate his success in this new approach.
It was nothing less than a revolution at the time. Those types of jobs had not previously existed; the training material for inside sales people had to be developed, pay scales and hiring procedures had to be put in place.
From that point on, Albert and his knowledge had a major impact on all aspects of the emerging field of telemarketing. In spite of his enormous contribution, we remember Albert most as a people-oriented person. He was always on the sales floor, challenging his team as well as offering encouragement and recognition.
In 1985, he launched his own telemarketing service bureau -- PlusCom Marketing Inc., in Laval, Quebec, specializing in offering business-to-business telemarketing solutions. His absolute dedication to quality and constant improvement led him to servicing a niche group of customers, selling high-end products and services in various market segments.
Throughout his 35 years of business experience, thousands of hours of specialized reading and research in the field he had helped create, his objective was to offer his clients the best value for their respective customers, rather than strive to be the biggest agency in the area.
Now, because one of his protégés has stepped forward to join his widow, Greta, as a business partner, Albert's legacy will continue with the same vision and energy.
Claude CORMIER is a friend of Albert.

Black pride of Canadian track and field
First Canadian-born black athlete to win an Olympic medal was member of relay team at 1932 Los Angeles Games but could find work only as a railway porter
By James CHRISTIE, Tuesday, November 18, 2003 - Page R9
Ray LEWIS's event in Olympic track and field was officially the 400-metre sprint, a flat race. His enduring place in Canadian sport history, however, was earned for hurdling a barrier.
Mr. LEWIS, who died in his native Hamilton at age 94 on the weekend, was the first Canadian born black athlete to stand upon the Olympic medals podium. He won a bronze medal as a member of the Canadian 4 x 400-metre relay at the Los Angeles Games in 1932.
At a time where racial discrimination was the way of the world, Mr. LEWIS didn't get to live a hero's life. Viewed today as a pathfinder for talented black athletes, in the 1930s Mr. LEWIS had to all but quit his athletics training because of the demands of his job as a railway porter with the Canadian Pacific Railways. He spent 22 years on the trains making 250 trips from Toronto to Vancouver. To try and stay fit, Mr. LEWIS would train by running alongside the rails when the train stopped on the prairies.
"He deserved so much more than he ever received," said Donovan BAILEY, who won two gold medals at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics in the 100 metres and 4 x 100-metre relay. "I benefited from his going before.
"I had the honour and good fortune of having lunch with Ray LEWIS and talking with him. I couldn't imagine what it was like in his day. It was so different. Ultimately, he's one who inspired me."
Raymond Gray LEWIS was a Hamiltonian, cradle to grave. James WORRALL, honorary member of the International Olympic Committee and Canada's Olympic flag bearer in 1936, recalled the family roots in the area went back to the 1840s when his great grandparents escaped slavery in the United States and settled near Otterville, Ontario
The youngest child of Cornelius LEWIS and Emma GREEN, Ray LEWIS was born October 8, 1910, at 30 Clyde St. He began running races for fun at age 9 when he entered as contest at a local picnic. He began formal training in track and field at Central Collegiate where the autocratic John Richard (Cap) CORNELIUS was his coach. In 1929, he established a Canadian high-school track-and-field record of four championships in one day, taking the dashes at 100, 200, and 440 yards as they were measured then, and anchoring the one-mile relay. In 1928 and 1929, Mr. LEWIS was part of the Central relay team that won the United States national schoolboy title.
He briefly attended Marquette University in Milwaukee but returned to Canada during the Depression and joined the Canadian Pacific Railway.
Besides his Olympic medal performance with teammates Phil EDWARDS, Alex WILSON and Jimmy BALL, Mr. LEWIS was also a Canadian champion several times and competed in the inaugural British Empire Games in 1930 in Hamilton and the 1934 Empire Games in London. where he won a silver medal in the mile relay. Mr. EDWARDS was actually the first black athlete to win an Olympic medal for Canada in 1932, getting the 800-metre honour about a half-hour before the relay with Mr. LEWIS. Mr. EDWARDS, however, was native of British Guyana, while Ray LEWIS was a local.
Mr. LEWIS, who in 2001 was awarded the Order of Canada, had a life-long attachment to the Empire Games, later renamed the Commonwealth Games. He was an adviser to the bidders who recently sought the 2010 Games for Hamilton and vowed that if the Games were coming back, he'd be there to greet them at the official opening at age 100. The Hamilton bid lost out last week to one from New Delhi, India. He lit the torch during the opening ceremonies at the International Children's Games in Hamilton July 1, 2000.
Mr. LEWIS wrote an autobiography entitled Shadow Running in which he detailed his life "as porter and Olympian." He was featured in a 2002 TVOntario documentary series on racism, Journey to Justice. "It [racism] felt worse here, because it wasn't supposed to happen here," he recalled in the video.
Whereas white athletes had an opportunity for coaching jobs after their careers, Mr. LEWIS did not. His position as a porter was one of the few jobs open to men of his race.
"The first time I met him, the Canadian team was on its way to Fort William, Ontario, for the Canadian championships in 1933. They travelled by Pullman and Ray was the porter. He couldn't get the time off to compete. But he did make the 1934 Empire Games team and was presented to the Prince of Wales, something that was a point of honour for him. He felt it was something to rub into all those people who had kept him off teams and out of places because he was black," Mr. WORRALL said.
Mr. LEWIS married Vivienne JONES in 1941, and they adopted two children, sons Larry and Tony.
