James JEROME, Politician and Judge: (1933-2005)
He was king of the hill as Speaker of the House of Commons but less successful as a federal judge. Appointed in a blip of election-day patronage, he encountered unaccustomed criticism
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, August 31, 2005, Page S9
James JEROME was a popular Speaker of the House of Commons who seemingly could do no wrong until he became a federal judge.
Mr. JEROME was the first Speaker chosen from an opposition party, he introduced television coverage of the Commons and he wielded a fair but firm hand during Question Period. Then, in an unusual spasm of election-day patronage, he was made associate chief justice of the Federal Court of Canada, where he came under unfamiliar attack. He stepped down in March of 1998 after his slow handling of war-crimes cases.
James JEROME spent his early years in Kingston, Ontario, where his father was a construction engineer. Later, the family moved to Toronto, where James went to high school, the University of Toronto and Osgoode Hall Law School.
After law school, Mr. JEROME moved to Sudbury, Ontario His first step into politics was winning a seat on city council. He then ran for the Liberals in a by-election in May of 1967 and lost but won in the 1968 general election, the year of Trudeaumania. He was re-elected in 1972, 1974 and 1979. Though the Liberals lost that election, he retained his seat with a majority of 12,000 votes.
Along the way, he had taught himself French to advance his political career and it probably helped land what some call the best job in the House of Commons. The post of Speaker comes with a staff of 3,000 and includes a rent-free, country estate called Kingsmere and a social life as glittering as that of the Governor-General.
The Commons first elected Mr. JEROME the Speaker in September of 1974 after the Liberals had won a majority government. Yet it wasn't a unanimous vote for the new Speaker. In an interesting footnote, Robert STANFIELD, leader of the opposition, refused to second his nomination.
Mr. JEROME remained in power through the long Trudeau Parliament. His most lasting change to the House of Commons was bringing in television coverage in 1978, which he said led to "a far higher quality of journalism in reporting the proceedings of the Commons." His ground rules for broadcasters were eventually copied by other parliaments, including the British House of Commons.
As Speaker, he managed to steer clear of problems. He was involved in only a few major battles while ruling as arbiter of taste and as master of debates in the Commons. He did, however, get into a fierce war of words with The Globe and Mail when the Speaker sided with a 1976 vote by the parliamentary press gallery to bar Canadian Press managers who were working as reporters during a strike. Parliamentarians said The Globe had committed a "gross libel" against the Speaker. The newspaper's view, as expressed in two editorials, was that the Speaker shouldn't be allowed to decide who can or cannot sit in the press gallery.
In October of 1979, during the short-lived Tory government of Joe CLARK, Mr. JEROME refused to recognize Warren ALLMAND after the former Liberal cabinet minister showed up in the House wearing a turtleneck sweater under a tweed jacket. Mr. ALLMAND wasn't happy, but before he get to his feet to complain, he first had to rush out and borrow a tie.
"Men in this House should have the same freedom of dress as women," Mr. ALLMAND eventually responded, pointing out that cabinet minister Flora McDONALD was not wearing a tie. The Speaker was not moved and cries of "Wear a dress, Warren," arose from the government side.
Mr. JEROME's election as Speaker during a Conservative government had been a minor triumph. In June of 1979, the Tories won a minority government and, in a surprise move, prime minister Joe CLARK allowed Mr. JEROME to remain in the Speaker's chair.
It was the first time in Commons history that a Speaker had been chosen from an Opposition party, a testament to the high esteem in which Mr. JEROME was held on all sides of the House and a recognition by the Tories of the benefits of reducing potential Opposition votes by one in a minority situation.
As it turned out, the arrangement did not last. The Clark government was defeated in a no-confidence vote that December.
A general election was called for February 18, 1980, and Mr. JEROME chose not to run. Instead, as Canadians went to the polls, Mr. CLARK named him associate chief justice of the Federal Court of Canada. Since the Conservatives were, in theory, still in power, they likely made the appointment at the request of the Liberals. It was a most unusual development, as outgoing prime ministers seldom make appointments on election day. In this case, it seemed all parties had agreed to making a judicial appointment for the sake of the retiring Speaker.
His new job, however, was not so cozy. As a judge, he soon found his decisions open to criticism. His biggest troubles arose during his last years as a Federal Court judge. Two incidents exposed the question of whether former senior politicians and government officials should be named to the bench.
In 1996, the chief justice of the Federal Court, Julius ISAAC, had a dinner meeting with a senior official of the department of justice who complained that Mr. Justice James JEROME was taking too long in the deportation hearings against three alleged Nazi war criminals.
The chief justice then intervened privately with Judge JEROME. Later, the Supreme Court ruled that Judge JEROME and another judge could not have any further connections with the case. Around the same time, Judge JEROME became involved in another controversy, related in part to the war-crimes case.
In making a comment about a case involving an aboriginal band, Judge JEROME was reported to have said he would never put a native judge on a native case and would never put a Jewish judge on a war-crimes case. This remark caused outrage from Jewish and aboriginal leaders, and a rebuke by the then-justice minister, Anne McLELLAN.
Both incidents led to a reform of how judges were named by the federal cabinet. For a time, at least 10 judges in the federal court's trial and appeal divisions had been former federal members of Parliament or government employees -- including Judge ISAAC, who was a former employee of the Department of Justice.
The appointments had been made by the Liberals during their long run in power from the 1960s to the early 1980s. On his last full day as prime minister in 1984, Pierre TRUDEAU appointed two cabinet members to the court. Two weeks later, his successor John TURNER appointed another former cabinet minister. The practice had made the court the object of criticism over its independence from the government.
In 1998, changes were finally made to the way judges are named.
"Now, it would appear to be impossible to name a cabinet minister as a judge," said Ian BUSHNELL, a retired law professor from the University of Windsor who wrote the history of both the Supreme Court and the Federal Court. "He [Mr. JEROME] was caught up in the patronage binge of the Trudeau/Turner era. No one who was appointed was a dud or a failure. As a judge, Mr. JEROME was certainly adequate."
Even so, it was as Speaker that he had shone. After his retirement from the Commons, Mr. JEROME wrote a memoir titled Mr. Speaker. In a review of the book, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reporter Larry ZOLF recalled Mr. JEROME's years in the House: "Few parliamentarians have ever been as popular with members of Parliament, reporters or constituents as the Toronto Irish Liberal member from the mining constituency of Sudbury.... JEROME's sensibilities are certainly missed in the carnival atmosphere into which the House, alas, has lately degenerated."
In his private life, Mr. JEROME was very much the family man. After he moved to the Speaker's house north of Ottawa, he bought a family cottage on Ramsey Lake near Sudbury. Mr. JEROME was an accomplished piano player and loved card games, especially bridge and gin. He was a keen golfer and he and his family skied at Camp Fortune near Ottawa.
James Alexander JEROME was born on March 4, 1933. He died in Ottawa on August 21 of Huntington's disease. He is survived by his wife Barry Karen and his children, Mary-Lou, Paul, Jim and Megan. Another son, Joseph, died in an accident in 1986.

Mr. ALLPRESS was taken to Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre, where he was pronounced dead. The woman was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at the hospital and released.
Ross AGATHOS, 36, has been charged with second-degree murder and attempted murder.

Sunny afternoon erupts in horror
Man mowing lawn slain by motorist
By Jered STUFFCO, Staff Reporter. With files from Tyler HAMILTON
A Scarborough man out mowing his lawn on a sunny Saturday afternoon was run over, then stabbed to death as stunned neighbours looked on.
The violent spree continued when the frenzied driver abandoned his first victim, ran over to the sidewalk and attacked an elderly woman who just happened to be passing by.
Police said he slashed the woman, causing superficial injuries, before running into a nearby house where he tried to take his own life.
"There was blood all over the driveway," said one neighbour who didn't want to be identified. "It was a mess."
The incident began at around 3 p.m. as Rod ALLPRESS, 46, was making the best of yesterday's warm, sunny weather by cutting the grass on his front lawn on Dunstall Cres. in the Lawrence Ave. E.-Beechgrove Dr. area.
witnesses: said a green Ford Taurus drove around the block, then returned and, driving and speeding erratically, jumped the curb and smashed into ALLPRESS. The car, dragging the lawnmower, continued on and then came to a stop against a tree.
"I heard a car horn beep, and it didn't stop," said one neighbour. When she looked out to see what the commotion was all about, she said, "I saw a car smashed up against a big tree," the lawnmower trapped underneath it.
Neighbours on the Scarborough residential street just south of Lawrence said ALLPRESS got into an argument with the driver of the Taurus.
That's when the driver pulled out a knife with a 25-cm blade and stabbed ALLPRESS several times.
At about the same time ALLPRESS's father Al emerged from the family's home at 57 Dunstall and began yelling at the man stabbing his son, who then turned away and went after a woman passing by on the sidewalk, witnesses: said.
The man, according to one witness -- none wanted their names used -- appeared to be "out of it," apparently on drugs.
Police and Toronto Ambulance crews sped ALLPRESS to Sunnybrook hospital, where doctors struggled to treat him for trauma and multiple stab wounds, to no avail.
He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The female victim was also taken to Sunnybrook, treated, and released.
witnesses: said ALLPRESS knew his assailant, who lived on the same street.
"The fellow who did it lives on our street, so they know each other," one witness said. But neighbours didn't know if there'd been a history of animosity between the two men.
Police, who released no names yesterday, had much of Dunstall cordoned off with crime scene tape late yesterday as they investigated Toronto's 61st homicide of the year.
Investigators are trying to determine whether the incident began with an out-of-control car, or whether the man deliberately targeted his neighbour.
A suspect, who is also being treated for his injuries, is in custody.

Man, 36, charged in 61st homicide
By Raju MUDHAR, Staff Reporter
Police tape remained strung between several houses yesterday, while two cruisers blocked access to the stretch of Scarborough homes where bizarre events led to the city's 61st homicide of the year over the weekend.
"Boy, it's a terrible case," Det. Joel KULMATYCKI, the homicide officer in charge of the investigation, said in an interview. "It appears that this is a just a real strange occurrence."
According to police, Rod ALLPRESS, 46, was mowing his lawn on Dunstall Cres., near Lawrence Ave. E. and Meadowvale Rd., at about 3 p.m. on Saturday when a car attempted to run him down. He narrowly escaped, but his mower was caught underneath the vehicle's tires as it proceeded to plow into a tree.
ALLPRESS confronted the driver of the car, who then pulled out a knife and stabbed him in the chest, police said. The driver then stabbed another woman, 49, who was walking by the scene.
After the driver ran into a nearby home, police arrived on the scene.
ALLPRESS was taken to Sunnybrook hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The woman was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released.
"What I can say is that when the officers arrested him within his residence, there appeared to be some signs of distress. They weren't sure what it was and transported him, as they are required to do, to a local hospital, where he was cleared by medical staff and brought over to 42 (Division,)" KULMATYCKI said.
He wouldn't comment on whether there had been an ongoing dispute between the two men.
He said the residents of the area, have been a "tremendous help" to the investigation.
Yesterday, Ross AGATHOS, 36, appeared in court and was charged with second-degree murder and attempted murder.

FROST, Richard Matthew
After a courageous battle with cancer, it is with great sadness, that we announce the passing of Richard Matthew FROST at Princess Margaret Hospital on June 28, 2005. Matthew was the beloved husband of Lorena (SWANSON,) cherished son of Richard and Nancy, dear brother of Jonathan and Carolyn (Jeff). Matthew was born in Hamilton, but spent most of his youthful years in Brampton. In 1989 he moved with his family to Winnipeg, where he attended Kelvin High School followed by graduation from University of Manitoba in 1994 (Political Studies) and 1998 (Recreation Studies). Matthew loved sports in any form. Throughout his life, he played hockey, baseball, golf, football and swam competitively. Always a passionate sports fan, he spent his professional life doing what he loved best - working first for the Manitoba Moose and then for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Matthew was full of dreams and aspirations with plans to ultimately build a career in sports journalism. He also took great pride in his wife Lorena and was able to celebrate the completion of her requirements for the C.M.A. designation a few days before he died. In the words of his brother, Matt's life was filled with love, success and the companionship of great Friends. It's not the story that's sad, just the ending. Matthew will be missed by his grandfather and wife, Walter and Helen ALLUM and his grandmother, Agnes FROST. Matthew was loved by his many aunts, uncles and cousins, particularly, Ryan and Sean JACKSON. Matthew was predeceased by his grandfather, Lorne FROST. We thank our family, many Friends, and Matt's colleagues for their support over the past 5 months. We want to also acknowledge the effort by the medical professionals at Princess Margaret Hospital. The funeral service will be held at Knox Presbyterian Church in Dundas on Thursday, June 30 - visiting beginning at 11: 00 a.m. and service at 1:00 p.m. (Arrangements by Cattel, Eaton and Chambers). In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated to the Matthew FROST Sports Fund at The Winnipeg Foundation, 1350 One Lombard Place, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3B 0X3. A celebration of Matthew's life will be held in Winnipeg the following week. To the world he was one; to us he was the world.

Police shoot man after woman stabbed to death
By Jan WONG, Monday, May 30, 2005, Page A9
A 62-year-old registered nurse was stabbed to death Friday night and one of her daughters was repeatedly stabbed in their townhouse on Sheppard Avenue West. A man was then shot dead at the scene by police minutes later.
Police said he was asked to drop his weapon and refused.
The nurse, Pandora WHITE/WHYTE, was reportedly arguing with a man, described as both her "adoptive brother" and "adoptive son." Neighbours said Ms. WHITE/WHYTE then phoned one of her daughters, Marcia ALLYNE, to help her. But before Ms. ALLYNE, 37, arrived, the man, 34, stabbed Ms. WHITE/WHYTE to death.
Police said last night Ms. ALLYNE was in critical condition. The province's Special Investigations Unit has been called in.

Stabbings kill woman, 62, injure daughter
Neighbours watch in horror through patio door as woman attacked
By Patrick EVANS, Staff Reporter
A Toronto family that spans five generations has to find a way to go on without their "Nana" after she was stabbed to death in an incident that also left her daughter critically injured.
The man who attacked them was shot dead minutes later by Toronto police.
Just before that, a teenage girl described by family members as the dead woman's granddaughter escaped death when a group of neighbours fought off the attacker's attempt to drag her back inside a townhouse at 1898 Sheppard Ave. W. near Jane St.
Pandora WHITE/WHYTE, 62, was killed late Friday in her home by her adoptive brother, Ucal LAUZON, 34, family members and neighbours said as they gathered outside the home yesterday.
"We lost the major link to a chain, the major source to a family that stays together," said Kathleen MILLINGTON, a family member who spoke to the Star outside the neat townhouse where WHITE/WHYTE lived with her granddaughter, Rochelle.
Horrified neighbours watched shortly after 10: 30 p.m. Friday as the man they identified as Lauzon, described by family members as an adoptive brother, stabbed WHITE/WHYTE's daughter Marcia ALLYNE, 37, just metres away on the other side of a glass sliding door.
A neighbour who wanted to be identified only as Kevin said he couldn't see a knife, but Lauzon struck Allyne repeatedly with an object.
"(Allyne) fought (back)," Kevin said. "I really respected that."
Minutes later, Lauzon was shot dead by police officers who arrived on the scene, neighbours said. He was pronounced dead at Sunnybrook hospital early yesterday.
Neighbours in the townhouse complex said they heard officers shout to Lauzon to drop his weapon several times before he was shot.
The provincial Special Investigations Unit, which probes civilian deaths involving police, is taking over the investigation.
A press release from the Special Investigations Unit said police officers arrived at approximately 11: 02 p.m. and found Allyne lying outside the house with "serious stab wounds."
"A Toronto Police Service officer was involved in a confrontation with a 34-year-old man, resulting in shots being fired."
Allyne is in critical condition at Sunnybrook Health Science Centre.
MILLINGTON told reporters WHITE/WHYTE was a "law-abiding citizen" and said the incident had nothing to do with drugs or any other kind of crime. "... I want that stated," she said.
Neighbours said Rochelle was in the house when the violence started and tried twice to get out.
The first time Lauzon dragged her back inside in front of horrified onlookers.
When she escaped a second time, she was taken inside the home of neighbour Zolikha WARDAK, whose family phoned 911.
"She was (covered) in so much blood, I thought she was hurt, too," WARDAK said.
Rochelle told her she had been in her bedroom when she heard an argument downstairs, WARDAK said.
The teen said she ran down to find WHITE/WHYTE on the couch, covered in blood.
Rochelle told WARDAK she had blood on her because she ran to WHITE/WHYTE and hugged her.
The teen told WARDAK that Lauzon was there and she tried to get away from him.
A neighbour who asked not to be identified said he was in his yard when he heard Rochelle screaming.
"I saw her come out," he said. "She came to us... She was trying to slide behind us."
He said Lauzon came out after her. "She started running. He was trying to grab her."
Rochelle tripped and fell, he said, and Lauzon dragged her inside.
"Moments later, she ran out again. So this time, we defended her."
He said that about half a dozen men from the neighbourhood formed a barrier between Lauzon and Rochelle.
Lauzon gave up and went back into the house, he said. Some of the men ran to WHITE/WHYTE's door and tried unsuccessfully to get inside.
WHITE/WHYTE was a registered nurse who worked with senior citizens, said Annette WALTERS- MILLINGTON, one of her three daughters.
WHITE/WHYTE also leaves her mother, 77, five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
WHITE/WHYTE had lived in the community for more than 20 years and was loved by everyone, said a distraught Annette WALTERS- MILLINGTON, WHITE/WHYTE's daughter.
"Anybody that knows her calls her Nana...," Kevin said. "That's what we called her, out of respect."
