Man's body found near park
Woman makes discovery just as search begins
By Scott DUNN, Wednesday, April 27, 2005, Page A1
A search involving 230 volunteers, police and soldiers had just begun when a woman out for a walk along the Meaford shoreline came across Art HAINES' body.
People turned out in droves to look for HAINES, who was known as someone who would help anyone.
He loved walking in the scenic area around Meaford. Police think it was while on one of his regular early morning walks that something went wrong.
Police suspect the 79-year-old outdoorsman had been missing since early Sunday morning. His body was found on the shore at the eastern edge of Meaford, beside Memorial Park, about 1.5 kilometres from his Union Street home.
Grey County Ontario Provincial Police Senior Const. Steve STARR said HAINES was found outside the area to be searched and off his usual walking routes near his home.
Police awaited word from the coroner Tuesday afternoon whether an autopsy would be performed.
Neil HAINES, a paramedic supervisor in Toronto, walked into the community centre about 9 a.m. Tuesday with family members to help search for his dad. He was in one of the 15 teams, each headed by an Emergency Response Team member, looking for HAINES.
“The people of Meaford have just been incredible,” HAINES said in an interview after his father's body was found.
“And the community should be very proud of their Ontario Provincial Police and firemen and military because they have been tremendous... You'd think they were searching for their own father.&rdquo
Police dogs and the Emergency Response Team searched Sunday and Monday when they were joined by Meaford volunteer firefighters and an Ontario Provincial Police helicopter. About 50 soldiers, all-terrain vehicles and a military bus from Land Force Central Area Training Centre Meaford were sent by commanding officer Lt.-Col. Rob WADSWORTH.
HAINES was born in and grew up in the Beaver Valley. He moved to the Toronto area as a young man, married and worked as a general labourer for Scarborough. He and his wife Mary retired to their Union Street home in 1986.
While on his walks he'd come over and pitch in if he spotted someone working outside.
“Everybody knew him in his neighbourhood because he's the type of guy, day or night, whatever you needed, well, call Art. You can depend on him. He'll jump in and give you a hand,” HAINES said.
He took care of his wife in their home as her health declined. About two years ago she moved into a Meaford nursing home.
“Since mom wasn't home, he was out looking for things to do for other people.&rdquo
HAINES said it feels strange to think his father is gone because he had just spoken with him over the phone a week ago. He was healthy, not on medication, and his mind was sound. When word came they'd found his father, HAINES said at least it brought him closure.
Mr. HAINES is survived by his wife, the former Mary Kathleen HARRIS, their son Neil and his wife Carrie-Lynn of Willowdale and daughter Darlene O'DONNELL of Florida and his grandchildren Colin HAINES and Kelly O'DONNELL. He's also survived by brother Fern ALLEN of Barrie and Lucy THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON of Duncan, sisters-in-law Mabel HAINES of Duncan, Hazel HAINES of Meaford and Beryl HAINES of Agincourt.
Visitation at the the Ferguson Funeral Home in Meaford will take place Thursday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Rev. Gary PARKER of Christ Church Anglican will officiate at the funeral service at the funeral home Friday at 1: 30 p.m. Interment and committal will follow at Lakeview Cemetery.

ALLEN, Robert Benedict
Born September 21, 1911 in Chatham, New Brunswick, died peacefully in Mississauga on April 2, 2005, our beloved husband and father Ben ALLEN, aged 93 and a half years.
Ben is survived by his wife of fifty years, Mary Catherine, nee Shillito, and his two children, James and Laura, his adored grandchild Richard Foy, and his son-in-law Errol Foy.
The son of Robert ALLEN and Catherine Ann McEachern of Chatham and latterly Saskatoon, Ben was the last surviving member of a family of nine. He is also survived by seven nieces and nephews and twenty-three grand nieces and nephews with further descendents. Ben's ancestors first came to Canada in 1772, and his family had extensive connections to the Roman Catholic Church in the Maritime Provinces of Canada and previously in Scotland. His family were proud Jacobites. Two notable relatives were Bishop Angus McEACHERN, the first Bishop of Charlottetown and a pioneer of the Catholic Church in the Maritimes, and Monsignor Benedict MURDOCH, Ben's godfather and for whom he was named, a famous priest, author and Canadian Expeditionary Force Chaplain during World War One.
Ben graduated from the University of Saskatchewan in 1936 with the highest honours as a Bachelor of Science in Geology. He was also a Professional Engineer. He worked as a geologist until his gradual retirement in his seventies, latterly with Gulf Minerals Canada. He loved the intellectual challenges posed by his chosen profession.
Ben served his country and the cause of Freedom throughout World War Two. As a Captain in the Canadian Army, he commanded soldiers stationed in the fields of Kent during the Battle of Britain. Later, he joined the Royal Navy and spent the latter half of the war as a staff officer in the Admiralty.
Ben ALLEN was known for his kindness and fairness to all, for his unassuming nature, for his natural personal dignity and grace, and for his intellect and culture. He loved animals and children, with a special love for all cats. He loved reading and listening to music, particularly Mozart. He was fascinated by science and by the complexities of military and geopolitical history. He was an Anglophile in the best sense of the word.
Although he was by nature conservative, he firmly believed that the favour of fortune or birth carried with it as many responsibilities as it did privileges. He wholeheartedly despised those who used power and position of any sort to advantage against the less fortunate and believed in justice for all. He hated bullies.
We miss our dear Husband and Dad very much every day. We believe he is in a better place but we will always carry him here in our hearts.
Friends may attend the Requiem Mass held at St. Patrick's Church, 921 Flagship Drive in Mississauga (Tomken between Dundas and Bloor) at 1pm on Wednesday April 6. The service will be followed by interment at the Assumption Cemetery, 6933 Tomken Road in Mississauga (East corner of Tomken and Derry Road). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Oakville Humane Society or to the Alzheimer Society of Peel.

Les BARTLEY, Lacrosse Coach and Executive: 1954-2005
As the man behind the Toronto Rock, he led a neophyte team to unsuspected heights in North American professional sport
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, May 23, 2005, Page S6
Toronto -- Over seven seasons of operation, the Toronto Rock lacrosse club has stick-handled its way from pro-sport obscurity to achieve cult status and a blaze of success both on the floor and at the turnstiles.
Suddenly, the National Lacrosse League's Rock is chic in Hogtown, and it's all because of Les BARTLEY. As head coach and general manager, he led the team to four league championships. Of course, he did not do it alone (former Toronto Maple Leafs executive Bill WATTERS is principal owner, and minority shareholders include Tie DOMI, Brendan SHANAHAN and Bobby ORR) but, as the mastermind of the team's success, he was the iconic head and leader of the current Rock dynasty.
Given that, it's all the more surprising to learn that Mr. BARTLEY himself was an unspectacular lacrosse player. Growing up in St. Catharines, Ontario, he also played football for St. Catharines Collegiate Institute. He was a defensive end when Malcolm ALLEN met up with him and discovered him to be "exceedingly strong" physically. "When he came into a room, he had a huge presence but not because he was 6-3 and weighed 250. He was a wiry guy about 5-10, 165 pounds."
Not long after graduating from high school, Mr. BARTLEY landed a job on the General Motors' V-8 assembly line in St. Catharines. He later became a union representative for United Auto Workers, which became the Canadian Auto Workers in 1985. He was what the union calls an "in-plant elected official" for the local in St. Catharines. For 20 years, he was a key negotiator in contract talks with General Motors both at the local and national level. As it happened, one of the people who worked with him at the Canadian Auto Workers office was Mr. ALLEN, his high-school crony and friend since 1968.
"Les was a compassionate, caring person," said Mr. ALLEN, who is financial secretary for the union's local in St. Catharines. "The employees he represented in contract talks, he put them first and foremost. When it came to family, he always wanted to know how you were and how the children was doing."
It was while at Canadian Auto Workers that Mr. BARTLEY decided to coach lacrosse on the side. In 1992, he joined the Buffalo Bandits for a short unpaid stint as a scout and then took on coaching duties when the team got off to an 0-3 start. So what did he do right off the bat? Well, he merely led the Bandits to 22 consecutive wins and a league championship. He followed that with title wins in 1993 and 1996.
In 1998, professional lacrosse evolved into the National Lacrosse League with the addition of the Ontario Raiders, the first Canadian franchise. Mr. HARTLEY became coach and the team went 6-6 playing out of Hamilton's Copps Coliseum. The following season, the Raiders were shifted to Toronto to become the Rock, and that's when Mr. BARTLEY spun his magic again, spearheading the team to four league titles in five years.
He also found a measure of success elsewhere. He coached Canada to international lacrosse titles, including the Heritage Cup served as the assistant coach of the St. Catharines senior A team that won its first Minto Cup in 10 years in 2001; and led Team Canada to the 2003 world indoor title.
"He's a guy who had no history in the game coming in to coach Buffalo and then he wins all these championships and becomes one of, if not the best coach lacrosse has ever known," said Jim VELTMAN, who was captain under Mr. BARTLEY in both Buffalo and Toronto for a total of 12 seasons.
Mr. BARTLEY was a legend at evaluating and acquiring talented players. As a motivator and coach, he was known for his pre-game pep talks and for his innovation.
He pioneered the use of specialists rather than two-way offensive and defensive players in a game that is dominated by offence.
"It was Les who implemented that style of having special offensive and defensive players and other coaches started doing the same thing," said Mr. VELTMAN. "I was a multi-faceted player and he wanted me to go out the offensive door but he allowed me to run back on defence. He gave me that latitude and I appreciated that."
"We have been and will be successful because we have depth with role clarity," Mr. BARTLEY once said. "Each player buys into playing their specific role. It simplifies everything. Each guy just does his job at the best level they can." But Mr. BARTLEY wasn't just a coach who stood behind the bench. Off the floor, he held team-bonding sessions at hotels in places such as Orillia, Ontario, and he would bring in sports psychologists to help bring out the best in his players.
"Les used mental imagery and exercises a lot," said Mr. VELTMAN. "He'd take you in a high school and have you jumping 20 feet off a platform in a harness -- stuff like that. That was a way to deal with the rougher edge in a person and lacrosse player. He was very fanatical and when he spoke, he was intense and passionate but he wasn't an in-your-face coach."
At first, some team members were puzzled by the techniques but soon discovered his off-the-floor tactics contributed to the team's success. "I can see now where he was coming from with his ideas," Rock goaltender Bob WATSON told reporters after the team won this year's National Lacrosse League championship without Mr. BARTLEY behind the bench.
One way or another, he brought it all together with the result that his overall coaching record of 93-38 (.709) in the regular season and 18-4 in the playoffs remains the best of any coach in National Lacrosse League history.
Mr. BARTLEY fell ill at the end of the 2003 season and was forced to relinquish his duties, although he stayed on as vice-president. Last year, he drew on his labour-negotiating experience and set aside his illness to coax the National Lacrosse League and its players' association to agree on a new three-year collective bargaining agreement at a time when the players had threatened to go on strike. As it turned out, he was a voice of reason when one was most needed.
"The players hold him in such high regard that his presence at the bargaining table elevated the level of trust in the process," National Lacrosse League commissioner Jim JENNINGS said.
In recognition, on May 9, the league named him executive of the year and renamed its coach-of-the-year award the Les Bartley Trophy.
On May 14, just before the Rock won its fifth league championship against the Arizona Sting in front of a crowd of 19,432, Mr. BARTLEY's story was told in a three-minute video that earned a standing ovation.
Les BARTLEY was born on March 11, 1954, in St. Catharines, Ontario He died there on May 15, 2005, of colon cancer. He is survived by his wife, Gloria, and children Matt and Laura. A private family service was held on May 16.

Tuesday, July 26, 2005, Page S7
Writer born in Toronto in 1911.
After beginning his career in the advertising departments of Eaton's and Simpsons, he began writing full-time and contributed regularly to magazines such as Maclean's, Saturday Night, The Canadian, Weekend and The Star Weekly.

ALLEN, Robert Greer
Bob ALLEN passed away quietly on August 20th, 2005 in Toronto after a long struggle with cancer. Born in Toronto on October 19, 1917 he was a graduate of Trinity College at the University of Toronto, and served in the communications corps of the Canadian Forces during World War 2. Bob began his career with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation writing and producing radio drama for Andrew Allan in the late 40's. He was invited to help launch television drama when Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television went on air in 1952 and was one of the architects of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's 'Golden Age' of drama throughout the 50s and 60s. He finally retired in the late 80s after writing producing directing and executive producing thousands of hours of television drama for such shows as Sunshine Schetches Festival, Folio, Opening Night The Great Detective and Seeing Things. He contributed enormously through his passion, intelligence, knowledge and generosity to the development of two generations of talent in the Canadian film and television industries, always filtered though his unique sense of humour. He will be greatly missed.

Robert ALLEN, Playwright And Producer (1917-2005)
Self-taught playwright who submitted his first manuscript while in the army went on to run the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation drama department in the golden years of both radio and television
By F.F. Langan, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, September 17, 2005, Page S9
Robert ALLEN ran the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation drama department in the early days of television, putting on some of the most ambitious television ever performed in the country. It was a time when the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation had the airwaves all to itself in the 1950s, and when Mr. ALLEN and the network could afford to produce what he considered the best.
"He represents the golden age of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation of the 1950s and '60s," said Eric KOCH, a retired Canadian Broadcasting Corporation producer and executive. "The dramas and opera he produced were far superior to anything done in the United States. There were questions in Parliament about the cost. Nowadays, it would be described as hopelessly elitist."
Mr. KOCH said that under Bob ALLEN, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation produced 17 operas. Since opera had never been done for television, Mr. ALLEN and his producer-director Franz KRAMER had to invent ways to shoot them. There could be no mistakes. Almost all were done before the era of videotape, so the shows were all live broadcasts.
"Now, you would need the resources and organization of D-Day to do an opera for television," said Mr. KOCH. "In Europe, countries join forces just to mount one opera."
Robert ALLEN grew up in Toronto and lived in a house on Winchester, one of the more respectable streets in what then the mixed neighbourhood of Cabbagetown. His father died when he was just 11 and he was brought up by his mother and an aunt. He went to the University of Toronto Schools and then to Trinity College at the University of Toronto, where he graduated with a degree in literature.
After graduation, he worked as an accountant until the Second World War intervened and he was drafted into the army in late 1941. But how did an accountant end up as a giant of Canadian television drama? He was in Halifax, waiting to be sent overseas to the war, and at something of a loose end. By that time, Mr. ALLEN was married and he his wife, Rita, liked to sit about and listen to the radio. It was then that he made his decision.
"At the end of one radio program, Bob was excited and said, 'That's what we're going to do,' " says Rita. " 'Write radio plays.'"
And that is exactly was he did for the rest of his long career. As an exercise, Bob and Rita ALLEN wrote something for Andrew ALLAN, the head of drama at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and sent it off in the mail. Mr. ALLAN liked what he saw and that was the start of a long working relationship.
At the same time, a change had occurred in the army's plans for young Robert ALLEN. It discovered his education. He was pulled out of the overseas contingent and sent to Kingston, Ontario, where he trained in radar and was made an instructor.
Eventually, he did go overseas and stayed on in Germany after the end of the war. He wrote a piece for Reading Magazine in February of 1946 in which he showed empathy for the German civilian population. He described the scene in a Berlin railway station as refugees arrived in late 1945: "They were all exhausted and starved and miserable.... A child only half-alive... a woman in the most terrible picture of despair I've seen.... Even when you see it, it's impossible to believe."
Not long after that, he was sent home to be demobbed among thousands of other young returning servicemen and women. To make ends meet, he worked in a bank but all the while wrote radio plays. Soon, he was in demand as a writer and producer of dramas and landed a full-time job at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
However, in the same way he had confidently embraced radio as a media, he could see a new and glittering shape on the broadcast horizon -- television. While many of his radio colleagues were dismissive of early television shows, he was one of the few Canadian Broadcasting Corporation employees to go out and buy a television set to see for himself what all the fuss was about. His first glimpse of a broadcast had occurred in a store in Vancouver. He stood in front of the showroom window watching a program being beamed across the border from the United States and said, "I can do that."
And he did. In 1952, the year the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation expanded into television, he was asked to be head of television drama. He was soon producing such major series as Festival, which was considered to be one of the finest cultural series ever done in North America. The series produced modern drama by playwrights such as Harold Pinter, as well as ballet and Shakespeare.
Some of the other programs he was closely involved with included Sunshine Sketches, the dramatization of Stephen Leacock's short stories about small town Ontario. The Great Detective, which ran from 1979 to 1982, was the story of a 19th-century detective played by Douglas Campbell. In addition, he also had a part in such ambitious dramatic series as Folio, which in many ways translated radio plays to Fifties television. It was followed by Festival, which ran 60- to 90-minute dramas from 1961-69 and offered more sophisticated productions. Opening Night was a series of 90-minute dramas produced in the early 1970's. One of them, Freedom of the City, dealt with the Londonderry riots in Ulster in 1970.
"Robert ALLEN was a pioneer in the days when the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation spent more money on drama than it did on news," said Desmond SMITH, who also worked at Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Television when it started. Being a pioneer meant inventing just about every technique now know to television.
It seems everyone who was anyone in the world of theatre and film in Canada worked for Robert ALLEN at one time or another. He even discovered Sean Connery, then 31 years old, to play the title role of Macbeth in 1961, a year before the unknown Scottish actor first played James Bond in Dr. No.
Macbeth was directed by Paul ALMOND, then 30, who went on to a successful career in film. He said it couldn't have been done without "a drama department run by someone like Robert ALLEN."
While Mr. ALLEN loved to mount lavish productions, his accountant's training meant he was careful with a buck, and also a good negotiator. Mr. ALMOND, who got his start at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, liked to tell the story of how Mr. ALLEN, who was an early riser, was fond of waking actors at daybreak -- or worse. One well-known actor told Mr. ALMOND that Mr. ALLEN had awakened him at 6: 30 in the morning "to negotiate my contract. I was so bleary-eyed I didn't know what he was saying. But I wanted the part, so I said yes. Later, over coffee at breakfast, I would say to myself, what have I done? What has he done?"
Mr. ALLEN worked at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for more than 40 years, producing such popular series as Seeing Things, a program starring Louis Del Grande about a newspaper reporter who has visions that help him solve crimes. Mr. ALLEN himself had an extraordinary ability to look at a script and see how it would be translated into television. His colleagues say he nurtured a lot of young talent, and taught many future directors the basics of their craft.
Robert ALLEN was a modest man and never boasted of his accomplishments or angled for awards. He lived a quiet life and his main passion away from work was tennis, which he played at the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club near his house. He also had the air of the absentminded artistic type.
"One of the odd things I remember about ALLEN is that he biked everywhere," said Desmond SMITH. "It seemed eccentric at the time. He would ride to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation dressed in a business suit."
His nephew, Jamie WEYMAN, says Mr. ALLEN did indeed drive a car and he loved sporty models -- including one Buick Skylark convertible.
Mr. ALLEN lived in Rosedale, as did the likes of such Canadian Broadcasting Corporation stalwarts as reporter Norman DEPOE and the announcer Max FERGUSON. Now the byword for an up-market city district, Rosedale was then more affordable, since many of its houses had been broken into apartments during a wartime housing shortage. He and his wife lived in the house until his death.
Robert Greer ALLEN was born in Toronto on October 19, 1917. He died of cancer on August 20, 2005. He is survived by his wife, Rita.

Robert Ramsey HARRIS
By John ALLEN, Friday, December 2, 2005, Page A24
Husband, father, grandfather, Royal Marine. Born May 26, 1923, in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Died June 18 in Richmond Hill, Ontario, of heart failure, aged 82.
Bob, as he was affectionately known, was the second of William and Annie HARRIS's five children. As a young boy, he was an energetic, if somewhat unenthusiastic, student who graduated in 1937.
In 1939, while still a teenager, he applied to and was accepted into the Royal Marines, considered the elite division of the British armed forces. On his 18th birthday, he was taken prisoner by the German army on the island of Crete, just off the coast of Greece.
He was to be detained in various prisoner-of-war camps throughout Poland and Germany and, after four long years of mental and physical torture in the camps, Bob was finally liberated by the Russian army. He finally returned home in 1945.
Shortly after that, Bob met and fell in love with Esther BEATTIE.
Due to the economic climate of post-war Britain, jobs were few and far between so he re-enlisted in June, 1946.
One of the highlights of Bob's military career was when he was assigned to a Royal tour of duty to South Africa on H.M.S. Vanguard with King George, his wife Elizabeth and the two princesses, Margaret Rose and Elizabeth, our present Queen.
In 1947, while on leave, he married Esther in Oldpark Presbyterian Church in Belfast. They had eight children, and the surviving children today are Amelia, William, Margaret, Roberta and Lucinda. On May 22, Bob and Esther celebrated their 58th wedding anniversary.
After completing his final tour of duty, Bob returned to Belfast, where he became employed as a stager working on scaffolding in the famous Harland and Wolff Shipyards.
He eventually went on to manage his own construction business, but uncertain times and political unrest in Northern Ireland persuaded Bob, then 43, to make a bold decision, and he began the necessary steps to allow his family to emigrate to another country.
In November, 1966, Bob headed off to Toronto, where he was able to secure steady employment with the Toronto Transit Commission. In March, 1967, Esther and the children joined him.
Eventually Bob earned a promotion to a more senior position within the Toronto Transit Commission and the family went house hunting. They finally were introduced to Thornhill, a beautiful area north of Toronto, and this was where the family home was to be.
Bob spent 22 years at the Toronto Transit Commission and retired from his position in the Treasury department in January, 1988, at the age of 64.
The next stage of Bob's life enabled him to spend more time with his family, which had grown considerably.
He dabbled in wood-working projects, enjoyed gardening and was always proud of his home and property.
Bob and Esther enjoyed travelling and, in 1991, they spent six weeks travelling throughout Europe. They visited Northern Ireland, which, of course, re-kindled memories of his childhood.
Another favourite spot for them to visit was Prince Edward Island, as it also reminded them of home in Northern Ireland.
As a result of the extreme conditions he endured during his prisoner of war years, especially when he was forced to work in the German mines, Bob experienced declining health as he entered the later stages of his life.
Bob's passing has left a great void in the lives of all who knew him and we feel fortunate and honoured to have shared in his life.
John is Bob's son-in-law.

On Tuesday December 20, 2005, in his 65th year. Glen could have effortlessly transformed a simple death notice into something much more. We only wish we could write about him the way he could about others. With the greatest humility and his uncanny ease with the written word, he would create a text imbued with compassion, humor and understanding. These were after all the same qualities which made him a man who was so very easy to love. He will be missed, mourned and celebrated by more people than it is possible to list. A memorial service will be held at The First Unitarian Church at 175 St. Clair Avenue West on Tuesday December 27th at 2: 00 p.m. Rememberances, if desired, can be made to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Progress Place or the Woodgreen Community Services.

ALLEN, Robert Benedict
Born September 21, 1911 in Chatham, New Brunswick, died peacefully in Mississauga on April 2, 2005, our beloved husband and father Ben ALLEN, aged 93 and a half years. Ben is survived by his wife of fifty years, Mary Catherine, née SHILLITO, and his two children, James and Laura, his adored grandchild Richard FOY, and his son-in-law Errol FOY. The son of Robert ALLEN and Catherine Ann McEACHERN of Chatham and latterly Saskatoon, Ben was the last surviving member of a family of nine. He is also survived by seven nieces and nephews and twenty-three grand nieces and nephews with further descendents. Ben's ancestors first came to Canada in 1772, and his family had extensive connections to the Roman Catholic Church in the Maritime Provinces of Canada and previously in Scotland. His family were proud Jacobites. Two notable relatives were Bishop Angus McEACHERN, the first Bishop of Charlottetown and a pioneer of the Catholic church in the Maritimes, and Monsignor Benedict MURDOCH, Ben's godfather and for whom he was named, a famous priest, author and Canadian Expeditionary Force chaplain during World War One. Ben graduated from the University of Saskatchewan in 1936 with the highest honours as a Bachelor of Science in Geology. He was also a Professional Engineer. He worked as a geologist until his gradual retirement in his seventies, latterly with Gulf Minerals Canada. He loved the intellectual challenges posed by his chosen profession. Ben served his country and the cause of Freedom throughout World War Two. As a Captain in the Canadian Army, he commanded soldiers stationed in the fields of Kent during the Battle of Britain. Later, he joined the Royal Navy and spent the latter half of the war as a staff officer in the Admiralty. Ben ALLEN was known for his kindness and fairness to all, for his unassuming nature, for his natural personal dignity and grace, and for his intellect and culture. He loved animals and children, with a special love for all cats. He loved reading and listening to music, particularly Mozart. He was fascinated by science and by the complexities of military and geopolitical history. He was an Anglophile in the best sense of the word. Although he was by nature conservative, he firmly believed that the favour of fortune or birth carried with it as many responsibilities as it did privileges. He wholeheartedly despised those who used power and position of any sort to advantage against the less fortunate and believed in justice for all. He hated bullies. We miss our dear Husband and Dad very much every day. We believe he is in a better place but we will always carry him here in our hearts. Friends may attend the Requiem Mass held at St. Patrick's Church, 921 Flagship Drive in Mississauga (Tomken between Dundas and Bloor) at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, April 6. The service will be followed by interment at the Assumption Cemetery, 6933 Tomken Road in Mississauga (east corner of Tomken and Derry Road). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Oakville Humane Society or to the Alzheimer Society of Peel.

Head-on crash kills two, hurts another
One driver going wrong way on 401
Woman survived impact of 200 km/h
By Bob MITCHELL, Staff Reporter
Two men are dead and a woman is fighting for her life following a horrific head-on crash on Highway 401 early yesterday that police say was caused by one of the vehicles travelling the wrong way on the highway.
"Both of the vehicles were travelling at highway speeds. That means at least at 100 km/h and when they hit, you're looking at a combined impact at 200 km/h," Ontario Provincial Police Sergeant Cam WOOLLEY said.
"It's incredible that anybody survived."
Police said the impact occurred at the crest of a hill on the highway and it's unlikely either driver had enough time to react before the collision near Milton.
"Considering the speeds and the fact they were closing in on each other, there would have been little opportunity for either of them to brake or swerve," WOOLLEY said.
"They hit head-on, headlight to headlight."
Thomas QUIGLEY, 31, and his passenger, Douglas ALLEN, 41, both of Kitchener, died instantly in the crash, which occurred about 3: 03 a.m. yesterday in the westbound passing lane of the highway at Guelph Line in Milton.
The jaws of life were needed to free Lynn ALBRECHT, 45, of Woodstock, from the crushed Pontiac she was driving. She was rushed to Hamilton General Hospital by air ambulance and she remains in critical condition with life-threatening injuries.
"She was conscious when taken to hospital," WOOLLEY said. "It took emergency personnel from the Milton fire department more than an hour and a half to free her from the wreckage."
Police haven't released the cause of the collision or said which of the vehicles was travelling the wrong way. However, they said most collisions caused by vehicles travelling the wrong way on a highway involve fatigue, impairment, senility and even suicide.
Collision reconstructionists spent several hours at the crash scene and the westbound lanes of the highway were closed until about 8: 25 a.m.
The eastbound lanes needed to be temporarily closed for about 30 minutes until about 5: 30 a.m. to allow the helicopter to land.
As part of their investigation, police are trying to determine the last-known movements of the drivers of both vehicles, including where they were coming from and what they had been doing earlier in the evening.
"Based on certain circumstances, there is evidence pointing to which of the cars was going the wrong way," WOOLLEY said.
"But we're still talking with witnesses: and we don't want to taint the evidence."
Provincial police said a call came into their communications centre indicating that a car was travelling eastbound in the westbound lanes between Highway 25 and the Guelph Line.
Minutes later, another call came in saying there had been a head-on collision, WOOLLEY said.
The crash was the second fatality probed by the Ontario Provincial Police in a matter of hours.
Investigators had just cleared a crash on Highway 410, where Rajeenthan SARAVANAMUTHU, 24, of Toronto died when he lost control of his 1991 black Honda Civic, crashed into a steel guardrail and rolled into a ditch.
The collision occurred about 11: 30 p.m. Wednesday on the northbound Highway 410, south of Derry Rd. in Mississauga.
Two passengers were transported to William Osler's Brampton Memorial hospital with non life-threatening injuries, police said.
witnesses: of that accident are requested to contact the Ontario Provincial Police's Port Credit detachment at 905-278-6131.

Veteran reporter mourned
By Patrick EVANS and Amy BROWN- BOWERS, Staff Reporter
He was an old-school newspaper man who never got the hang of the tape recorder -- not when his hands moved fast as light, filling up notebook after notebook. But as hard as he went after hard news, there was always a touch of elegance in the words he wrote.
Journalists are mourning and sharing memories of Glen ALLEN, who died this week after a career that spanned decades and won him newspaper awards for his treatment of issues like human rights and suicide.
ALLEN, 65, was reported missing Monday from Toronto East General Hospital where he was being treated for depression, which he struggled with for decades. His body was discovered the next morning near some train tracks by Leslie St. and Lake Shore Blvd.
He was "a reporter of all trades," said longtime friend Carl MOLLINS, former executive editor at Maclean's magazine. "He could do... politics in Ottawa, (or) travelling around, just finding things that made a story of interest to other people, and then explaining it very well."
MOLLINS recalled a Maclean's series where ALLEN travelled across Canada in search of details to bring the inhabitants of different regions to life for his readers. In one town, "he got acquainted with a woman mail carrier, and he just followed her around. She talked to him about the town and the people and what they did," MOLLINS said.
"He had this incredible sympathy and compassion for the underdog," said ALLEN's brother, Gene.
MOLLINS said he and ALLEN met for coffee regularly, but the last time they were scheduled to meet, ALLEN didn't show. ALLEN said he was struggling with depression.
ALLEN, a reporter who always found the right words, was devastated that he was losing his vocabulary after a stroke.
"He had told me in some of our meetings that he was having trouble thinking of words," MOLLINS said. "I used to tell him I'm an old person, it happens to me all the time. But his was different and you could tell from the email that he was having trouble with language."
ALLEN worked for the Toronto Star in the late '60s before travelling to Chile. He spent a decade working sporadically for the Montreal Gazette and taught for two years in China. ALLEN worked at the Kingston Whig Standard and the Saint John Telegraph Journal then moved back to Toronto where he taught English as a Second Language classes until his death, MOLLINS said.
He had three children.

ALLEN, Glen Ralph
On Tuesday, December 20, 2005, in his 65th year. Glen could have effortlessly transformed a simple death notice into something much more. We only wish we could write about him the way he could about others. With the greatest humility and his uncanny ease with the written word, he would create a text imbued with compassion, humour and understanding. These were after all the same qualities which made him a man who was so very easy to love. He will be missed, mourned and celebrated by more people than it is possible to list. A memorial service will be held at The First Unitarian Church at 175 St. Clair Avenue West in Toronto on Tuesday, December 27th at 2: 00 p.m. Remembrances, if desired, can be made to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Progress Place or the Woodgreen Community Services.
