GAIN, Donald Nelson (Journalist /Traveler)
Don passed peacefully in his 92nd year in Victoria, British Columbia where he had lived for more than 40 years. Born September 17, 1913 in St. Catharines, Ontario to Daisy (DEAN) and Charles Nelson GAIN, Don was the second of 4 brothers. Don began his journalism career at age 18 as a high school sports reporter for the St. Catharines Standard and here his skill as a wordsmith was developed as he made a list of all the synonyms for a football on a sheet of paper and ticked them off as he used them. Don attended the University of Toronto and worked variously in Toronto, Timmins and Kirkland Lake before joining two of his brothers in the Royal Canadian Air Force. Here his love of travelling was nurtured during his training at Chatham, New Brunswick, Summerside, Prince Edward Island and Patricia Bay, British Columbia before being stationed as a navigator on Canso submarine patrol aircraft out of Alliford Bay, Queen Charlotte Islands. At Alliford Bay, he continued his interest in newspapers by becoming editor of a daily, mimeographed news sheet handed out to service personnel in the dining hall and publishing a monthly magazine (The Victory) at the station. Don was now hooked on the West Coast and after the war, lived and worked in Oregon and California, writing for a string of labour newspapers owned by a Canadian. But ever eager to travel, he signed on to Norwegian cargo vessels as a steward and travelled to Japan, West Indies, South America, and the U.S. east coast. On those trips, he disciplined himself to write as much as 3000 words a day, selling what articles he could and dreamed of becoming a foreign correspondent. The last thing he did before departing on a ship, was to return his library books. Now in his late 30's, Don wrote from Trinidad to a friend that 'If I live long enough, maybe I will be successful.' After ship-board travel became tiresome, Don continued to work in California, where, among other things, he was a radio drama producer. Finally, Don returned to Canada where he worked for Canada Dry as sales manager in Victoria and here he realized his dream. In 1962, he joined the staff of the Victoria Colonist where he covered all the beats - politics, religion, marine events, armed forces, police and realized another dream by travelling with Canadian Peace Keepers to Cyprus, Norway, Germany, France, and the Arctic. Highlights of those trips included interviewing Archbishop Mikarios and transferring, ship-to-ship on a bosun's chair, with the Navy. After 13 years, Don retired from the paper with cudos from the Saanich District council as 'a fair and honest reporter.' He used to say he had Friends in 'high' places as he wrote both the military news and the church page. He then attended the University of Victoria to learn French and continued travelling by, among other things, immersing himself in the French culture by spending 6 month stints at the university at Aix-en Provence. He continued to freelance and never lost his inquisitiveness, sometimes 'interviewing' you until you had to cry 'Uncle!'. Don never married nor had a family of his own, but he was a true patriarch, always keeping in touch and visiting family in eastern Canada and U.S., usually as stop-overs to overseas. He knew all the family connections and sometimes as a young man, my eyes would glaze over as he once again recited the family tree. But his enthusiasm was infectious and I'm now destined to carry that torch. Don did not belong to service clubs but, non-the-less, served the community through a deep sense of social involvement. In retirement, he tirelessly visited elderly Friends and acquaintances and drove them anywhere necessary to attend their needs until he voluntarily gave up his own license. His list of annual charitable donations was long. Don never made the Fortune 500 list and had by-lines instead of headlines, but by any other measure, he was a success. He survived all 3 of his brothers and is now survived by nephews: Nelson GAIN (Marg), Meaford, Ont,;; Cameron GAIN (Pauline), Welland, Ontario; Scott GAIN, Nelson, British Columbia (Glenda, Victoria, British Columbia); Donald GAIN (Mickey), Aurora, Ont,;; Dean GAIN, California; Diane GOLDWATER, Arizona. Grand nieces/nephews: Kitty ARMSTRONG, Dana GAIN, Jason GAIN, Christy GAIN, Allison GAIN, Donald GAIN, Geordie SEED, Corrie SEED and numerous great-grand nieces/nephews. Don was a long time member of the First Unitarian Church of Victoria (5575 West Saanich Road) where he will be remembered and celebrated by Friends and family on February 5, 2005 at 2pm. Don's ashes will be scattered in the Memorial Garden and a plaque placed in the Memorial Wall. If so inclined, please bring remembrances both written and verbal to share and make donations, in his name, to your favourite charity in lieu of flowers.

DAVIDSON, Mary Janet (ARMSTRONG)
Mary Janet ARMSTRONG was born November 23, 1911 on a farm on Kennedy Road, near Unionville, Ontario. She died on March 16, 2005 at Memorial Hospital in Mission, British Columbia. She was the daughter of the late Leslie ARMSTRONG and Charlotte LENNOX dear sister of Margaret PRITCHARD and the late Robert ARMSTRONG beloved wife of the late Bruce DAVIDSON; loving mother of Jean and her husband, Allen AICKEN; a much-loved 'Auntie Mary' to a host of nieces and nephews. She will be greatly missed by many Friends and relatives of all ages. She was a mentor, church and charity volunteer, and quiet benefactor of good causes in her local community and abroad.
The deaths of her parents at a young age gave her a sensitivity to vulnerable children. Teaching at Birch Cliff Heights and Frankland Schools, she nurtured and nourished many struggling pupils in depression-era and wartime Toronto. Marriage brought a return to farm life, on the Davidson homestead in Agincourt then on the farm in Stouffville. She was active in the Presbyterian Churches in Agincourt and Stouffville, in Women's Institute, in 4-H, and many other causes.
After never living further than 15 miles from her birthplace, she undertook the big adventure, at age 92, of moving to Maple Ridge, British Columbia to live with Jean and Allen. She embraced this courageously, and enjoyed looking at the mountains, the Fraser River, the farm animals in the fields, and the cat on the porch.
Her final illness came suddenly and her departure from this world was gentle.
A memorial service was held on Wednesday, March 30, 2005 at St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church, Whonnock, British Columbia, the Rev David Findley- Price officiating.
Private interment at Knox Cemetery, Agincourt, the Reverend Kathryn STRACHAN officiating.
A memorial service will be held at Unionville Presbyterian Church, 600 Village Parkway, Unionville, on Saturday, April 30, 2005 at 1: 30 p.m., the Reverend Gordon TIMBERS officiating. The family will receive Friends from 12 noon at the church.

O'Kill was an active member of the local United Church as well as being a Mason for many years. He was president of the local coin and stamp collectors' association as well as the local antique collectors' association.

Beland HONDERICH, Newspaper Publisher (1918-2005)
Micromanager changed the Toronto Star from a scoop-an-edition news sheet into an information-based vehicle for an emerging middle class, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Wednesday, November 9, 2005, Page S9
An outsider who joined the Toronto Star as a "wartime replacement," Beland (Bee) HONDERICH worked his way up through the newsroom to become editor, publisher and ultimately chairman of the board of the country's largest and most colourful city newspaper. Its archives can boast staff bylines belonging to Ernest Hemingway (he likened it to "serving in the Prussian army under a bad general"), Pierre Berton, Gordon Sinclair and Peter Newman.
A micromanager and a curmudgeon who was feared more than he was loved, he transformed and modernized the Star, built a legendary newsroom in the late 1950s and 1960s, fought and won a newspaper war with the now defunct Toronto Telegram, bought up its circulation lists and its fleet of community newspapers, crusaded in support of diversity, national unity and cultural nationalism, and acquired Harlequin Enterprises, for many years a substantial cash cow for Torstar Corp.
"He took a paper that mattered and turned it into a great newspaper. I think his impact on Canadian journalism and his craft was huge," said his son, John HONDERICH, himself a former editor and publisher of the Toronto Star and now a member of the board of directors of Torstar Corp.
He was hard to love, but easy to respect, said Peter NEWMAN, editor-in-chief from 1969 to 1971. "I was always impressed by his wisdom, his determination and his optimistic view of the Canadian future. Unlike most publishers, his ideology went way beyond the bottom line. He never really understood the Canada that stretched beyond the shadow of the C.N. Tower, but he loved the idea of this country."
Beland (Bee) Hugh HONDERICH was born in Baden (near Kitchener,) Ontario, one of six children of John William HONDERICH, a Mennonite postmaster and railway agent, and Rae Laura (ARMSTRONG,) a Presbyterian. Religion was a contentious and omnipresent factor, according to Mr. HONDERICH's youngest brother, philosopher Edgar (Ted) HONDERICH. His father liked unusual names. He called his eldest son Loine and he named his second son after a physician named Béland in Montreal.
During the Depression, the family home was sold at auction when the mortgage holder foreclosed. Beland left school after Grade 8 to help support the family and began working as the Baden correspondent for the Kitchener Record (now The Record) in 1935 at the age of 17.
He did well covering two big fires in his community and made the move to the Toronto Star as a wartime replacement in 1943, earning $35 a week. He had been rejected from the armed forces because he had poor eyesight and a bad ear. When he got to the Star, he was told "all the good men were away fighting" and warned that there wouldn't be a job for him when they came back.
Shy, private, and insecure -- the poorly educated country man in the big city -- he "always felt he had to work twice as hard," according to his son, John.
Mr. HONDERICH told the journalist Doug (now George) FETHERLING in a 1983 interview for Saturday Night magazine that "you produced or else," explaining that he covered two speeches a day, delivering a few facts and a couple of "punchy" quotes. "It left a deep impression on my mind... what people are interested in is information." This was a lesson he would apply when he had control of the paper.
Far from being dismissed when peace was declared, he was promoted to financial editor in 1945, named editor-in-chief a decade later and elected a director of the company in 1957.
The Toronto Star is a private business like other newspapers in Canada, but it is unusual in that it is owned by a group of families and it operates according to a set of principles established by the late Joseph ATKINSON Sr. He became editor in 1899, quickly turned the struggling newspaper around and soon acquired a controlling interest. In 1911, Harry C. HINDMARSH joined the paper. He became Mr. ATKINSON's lieutenant and his son-in-law. Together, they turned the newspaper into the home of "razzle-dazzle journalism," ordering saturation coverage of big stories and indulging in huge headlines, full-page pictures and wacky stunts. They also supported the Liberal Party and social-welfare issues such as mothers' allowances, unemployment insurance, old-age pensions, minimum wages and the rights of labour unions. The combination of Christian piety, free-wheeling Fabian socialism and popular journalism was good for circulation and advertising revenues. By 1913, the Star was Toronto's largest paper and Mr. ATKINSON was its controlling shareholder.
He died in 1948, leaving an estate of more than $8-million, putting the bulk of it, including the ownership of the paper, into the Atkinson Charitable Foundation, which he had established six years earlier. In his will, he directed that profits from the paper's operations were "for the promotion and maintenance of social, scientific and economic reforms which are charitable in nature, for the benefit of the people of the province of Ontario" and he stipulated that the paper could be sold only to people who shared his social views.
Mr. HINDMARSH became president of the five-person board established to govern the paper and carry out Mr. ATKINSON's wishes. However, the Ontario government, led by Conservative Leslie FROST, and rival newspapers, including The Globe and Mail and The Toronto Telegram, argued that the foundation was merely a device to avoid paying succession duties on Mr. ATKINSON's estate.
The FROST government passed a law forbidding charitable foundations from owning more than 10 per cent of a profit-making business. The Star was given seven years to sell its business interests, with the foundation's trustees, officers and directors allowed to buy them, subject to the approval of the Supreme Court of Canada.
While this wrangling was going on, Mr. HINDMARSH dropped dead of a heart attack on December 20, 1956. The new board of the Atkinson Foundation was made up of Joseph S. ATKINSON (son of the late Mr. ATKINSON,) his sister Ruth HINDMARSH (widow of Mr. HINDMARSH), Burnett THALL, William J. CAMPBELL and Mr. HONDERICH.
In 1958, after swearing before the Supreme Court that they would uphold the principles outlined in Mr. ATKINSON's will, they were allowed to buy the newspaper. They paid $25.5-million in a leveraged buyout, which Globe business columnist Eric REGULY has called "the steal of the century." They put down $1-million in cash and secured most of the rest by selling debt and preferred shares to the public.
Mr. HONDERICH, who had been editor for three years and on the board for one, had no family money or other resources to draw upon. He was living in a duplex with his wife and three children. "We had one couch and one chair," said his son John. "The Bank of Commerce virtually put up all the money, but the security was the shares of the largest newspaper in the country."
In addition, Mr. HONDERICH took a personal loan for his 15-per-cent share, helped by advice and references from accountant, cultural nationalist and later politician, Walter GORDON. Today, Torstar Corp., the media conglomerate that owns the Star, is worth about $1.7-billion.
As editor and then publisher, Mr. HONDERICH built the great Toronto Star newsroom of the late 1950s and 1960s. He transformed the paper from a flashy, scoop-an-edition news sheet into an information-based vehicle for columnists and critics. He quickly realized, according to journalist Val SEARS, that the real market in the postwar period lay in finding readers among the young middle class in the suburbs who were moving up through the social strata.
They wanted context and information, not just headlines. Ron HAGGART worked as a columnist for the Star in the sixties. Mr. HONDERICH had the right ideas about how to change the Star, which was a stodgy, old-fashioned paper, according to Mr. HAGGART. "It was still a paper that believed the most recent event deserved a headline because it had happened in the last hour."
Among the stable of writers and editors Mr. HONDERICH enlisted or celebrated were: Pierre Berton as a daily columnist, Charles Templeton as managing editor, Nathan Cohen as drama critic, Milt Dunnell on sports, Gwyn (Jocko) Thomas on crime and Peter NEWMAN as Ottawa editor and editor-in-chief.
He loved to hire people, said journalist Robert FULFORD, who worked for the Star twice (from 1958 to 1962 and from 1964 to 1968), but he quickly grew bored with them. Managing editors were a notoriously endangered species, according to Mr. FULFORD, who once joked that after more than two years on the job, managing editors took on the look of "hunted animals." When he was having trouble sleeping at night, police reporter Jocko Thomas was said to recite the names of the more than 40 city editors who served during his long career at the paper.
Mr. NEWMAN spent seven years at the Star, leaving in 1971 in "frustration because [Mr. HONDERICH] was always stone-cold certain about what he didn't want, but not good at suggesting practical options."
He could be a bully. "He wasn't a particularly big man, but he looked big to his employees. He tended to tower," said Mr. SEARS, who worked for Mr. HONDERICH for about 25 years in a number of capacities, including Ottawa bureau chief and Washington correspondent. "He spoke low, but he made his position very clear. On the other hand, he was certainly the best publisher I ever worked for because he knew what he wanted and he would back you up."
Saying that he and Mr. HONDERICH fought a lot, especially when he was editor of the editorial page, Mr. SEARS said he always thought it was a mistake to try to outguess his boss. Mr. HONDERICH seemed aware of his power. "He once said to me, 'If I walk through that newsroom and I say to someone it is a nice day, by the final edition I have two full pages on the weather," said Mr. SEARS.
Stories abound about Mr. HONDERICH's tendency to micromanage. When he was editor, he behaved as though he was the publisher and when he became publisher and president in 1966, "he acted as though he owned the paper outright," Mr. FULFORD said.
Staffers were obsessed with anticipating his wishes, often with bizarre results. Somebody heard that "Bee" believed that a colour photograph had to have red in it, so Star photographers took to stowing red jackets in their cars and asking people to put them on before snapping their pictures, or so the story goes.
"Bee had a phobia about accompanying each picture in his paper with explanatory cutlines," recalled Mr. NEWMAN. "I got hell once for running an illustration of Gina Lollobrigida, the Italian film star, standing beside a male dwarf, because I had left out the 'left' and 'right' identifications."
During his years at the newspaper, Mr. HONDERICH oversaw the introduction of colour, the shift from an afternoon to a morning paper, a Sunday edition and the appointment of the first ombudsman at any paper in Canada. He was also a driving force behind the establishment of the Ontario Press Council. In 1976, he was appointed chairman and chief executive officer of Torstar Corp. He continued to serve as publisher until September, 1988.
Mr. HONDERICH married three times. His and his first wife Florence divorced in 1962. He married Agnes KING in 1968. Star legend has it that he called the paper from the airport as he and his bride were leaving on their honeymoon and asked for the front page to be read to him. She died of cancer in 1999 after a long and painful illness. "He was amazingly diligent in the way he cared for her," said his son John.
That same year he became engaged to Rina WHELAN, a widow he had met many years before (when both were married to other people) in the barbershop of the Hotel Vancouver, where she worked as a manicurist. "This is one of the great love stories," John HONDERICH said, "I have had the honour of standing up for him at two of his three weddings."
The HONDERICHs lived in the penthouse of La Carina (Rina's House,) a condominium she had developed and built on English Bay. "He was a wealthy man and she was a wealthy woman," commented Mr. HONDERICH's brother Ted, "and so both were under suspicion of being gold diggers."
Mr. HONDERICH became more left wing in his politics as he became older, said his brother. "All newspaper publishers are accused of being ruthless, but actually they are activists," he said. "They want to make things happen and they don't like things hanging on in an indecisive way."
Beland Hugh HONDERICH was born on November 25, 1918, in Baden, Ontario. He died yesterday in St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver after a massive stroke. He was 86. He is survived by his first wife Florence, his third wife Rina, three children, six grandchildren and one brother.

She will be greatly missed by many Friends and relatives of all ages. She was a mentor, church and charity volunteer, and quiet benefactor of good causes in her local community and abroad. The deaths of her parents at a young age gave her a sensitivity to vulnerable children. Teaching at Birch Cliff Heights and Frankland Schools, she nurtured and nourished many struggling pupils in depression-era and wartime Toronto. Marriage brought a return to farm life, on the Davidson homestead in Agincourt, then on the farm in Stouffville. She was active in the Presbyterian Churches in Agincourt and Stouffvllle, in Women's Institute, in 4-H, and many other causes. After never living further than 15 miles from her birthplace, she undertook the big adventure, at age 92, of moving to Maple Ridge, British Columbia to live with Jean and Allen. She embraced this courageously, and enjoyed looking at the mountains, the Fraser River, the farm animals in the fields, and the cat on the porch. Her final illness came suddenly and her departure from this world was gentle. A memorial service was held on Wednesday, March 30, 2005 at St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church, Whonnock, British Columbia, the Reverend David Findley-Price officiating. Private interment at Knox Cemetery, Agincourt. the Reverend Kathryn STRACHAN officiating.

SMITH, John Wesley " Rusty"
With deep sadness the family announces the death of John Wesley "Rusty" SMITH. Born in Noranda, Quebec on April 20, 1930, Rusty grew up in Kirkland Lake and Haileybury, Ontario. A graduate of the Haileybury School of Mines, he was initially employed by the Ontario Department of Mines. He subsequently found his niche in the metallurgical field where he worked as Mill Manager with New Jason Mines (Ont.), Mackeno Mines (Yukon), and Jardun Mines (Ont.). Rusty then accepted a position with New York and Honduras Rosario Mining Co., leaving Canada to spend the following eight years in the Republic of Honduras followed by three years in New York City. Yearning for his homeland, Rusty returned to Canada in 1968, accepting a position as Mill Manager with Bethlehem Copper Mine. He resided with his family in Ashcroft, British Columbia During the spring of that year, Rusty bought a property on beautiful Horsefly Lake, British Columbia. Clearing the land, erecting a cottage, and enthusiastically embracing the attributes of life in the country he was able to pursue his love of working with wood, building and "fixing". Always innovative and hard-working, he could keep almost anything "running". Rusty continued as Mill Manager at Bethlehem Copper which was eventually taken over by Cominco and subsequently amalgamated by Lornex Mines to become Highland Valley Copper. In 1986 he retired and moved into into his newly built log home on the lake. Here, he was finally able to slow down to leisurely pursue hobbies and to enjoy the fruits of his labour and the company of his beloved pets. Rusty bore his illness with courage. The long journey ended on October 10, 2005 at the Cariboo Memorial Hospital in Williams Lake, British Columbia. His body rests at Mountain View Cemetery in Horsefly, British Columbia. A beloved husband and father, he is survived by his wife of 53 years, Diana (CREEDON,) daughters Maggie (PIGGIN,) Erin (Kevin FRIESEN) and grand_son Noah, and by son Sean and grandchildren Kiara, Joshua and James, by sisters Jean (ARMSTRONG,) Mary (Manuell) and Betty (Soth). He was predeceased by brothers Burney and Roy and by his parents Muriel Reany and John Wesley SMITH. Rusty will be remembered for his easygoing nature, quick sense of humour, breadth and depth of knowledge on a wide variety of subjects, uncanny skill at problem solving and willingness to help others. The family wish to extend their heartfelt gratitude to the relatives and Friends who helped and supported them in so many ways.
