Ted ARCAND, Diplomat: 1934-2005
Outspoken Canadian ambassador to Lebanon during the 1982 invasion by Israel was a 'hero in Beirut' and the last Western diplomat to leave
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, May 27, 2005, Page S7
Surveying the charred rubble of his West Beirut residence one July day in that wretched summer of 1982, Ted ARCAND pronounced, "This is the work of a child of Israel." It was a bit more than seven weeks into Israel's wrenching invasion of Lebanon and siege of Beirut and the Canadian ambassador's fifth-floor apartment in the seaside Muslim sector of the Lebanese capital had sustained heavy fire and blast damage when an Israeli jet attacked a building across the street.
It was "unbelievable that people are treated like this," Mr. ARCAND lamented, noting that 80 people had been killed in the raid. "So much for pinpoint bombing."
Israel's behaviour had disappointed him: "I always had an enormous admiration for the Israelis, their musicians, their men of science, which I try to think of despite my travels in south Lebanon," he told the Associated Press. "I have seen all the human misery... and I wonder where the Israel I knew has gone." To his detractors, Mr. ARCAND failed to understand Israel's plight, or didn't care and in a most undiplomatic fashion. Some charged that his remarks betrayed a glaring lack of impartiality and maybe even sympathy toward the Palestine Liberation Organization.
Others lauded him for sheltering over 100 Palestinian women and children in the Canadian embassy, and for his principled and singular courage, evidenced by the fact that he was the last high-level Western diplomat to leave West Beirut.
Why did he stay when he could have easily bugged out, probably with Ottawa's blessing? Partly because the Department of External Affairs, as it was then called, did not order him and his skeleton staff out of Beirut until August 2, 1982 -- nearly two months after the Israeli incursion began, and then only to the town of Jounieh, about 20 kilometres north of the capital -- but also because he had "a deep sense of duty," said his son, Jean-Louis, who was then just 17 and went through the ordeal with his parents.
"He was scandalized and shocked by what was going on. [But] people from his generation were profoundly idealistic Canadians, part of the Trudeau generation. He was a typical example of a francophone who did well by dint of the Trudeau years. These people really believed in their jobs and in representing their country."
His boss, then external affairs minister Mark MacGUIGAN, backed him up. "He was doing a great service for his country... for the cause of world peace," Mr. MacGUIGAN told the House of Commons in August of 1982, stressing that Mr. ARCAND was ordered out for his own safety. Indeed, just a few weeks earlier, the House unanimously adopted a resolution -- a very rare occurrence -- praising Mr. ARCAND for his "tireless dedication and unflinching devotion to duty."
Mr. ARCAND described Beirut as "a living hell... truly a scene from Dante's Inferno." With tears welling in his eyes, he said the destruction caused by Israel's land, sea and air bombardment, "would make Berlin of 1944 look like a tea party." He also criticized the early withdrawal of peacekeeping forces from West Beirut, saying the move was a major factor leading to the massacres in September of 1982 of at least 800 Palestinians, including many women and children, in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps at the hands of the Phalange, a Christian militia.
A mainstay of U.S. network newscasts, Mr. ARCAND once stuck his telephone out the window of his residence and asked the reporter on the line, "does that sound like a ceasefire to you?"
As Mr. MacGUIGAN wrote in his memoirs, Mr. ARCAND stayed behind in Beirut to assist those who needed visas and to help keep up the spirits of the populace. As a result, he "suffered Israeli indignities not visited on any other ambassador." Because he had to cross Israeli barricades to bring supplies into West Beirut, his car was stopped and searched repeatedly, despite the fact that it had diplomatic licence plates and flew the Canadian flag.
Such searches were "in total contravention of the Vienna accords on the treatment of diplomatic personnel. The Israeli government knew that and was aware of what was going on but was either unable or unwilling to bring [then General Ariel] Sharon and the military to heel," Mr. MacGUIGAN wrote.
In the end, the department persuaded Mr. MacGUIGAN to accept an "insincere letter of regret from [then Israeli prime minister Yitzhak] Shamir."
Mr. ARCAND was urged to stand his ground, at least until the order to move came through. That same day, one of two local embassy employees who had asked to stay for personal reasons was shot to death.
Two days later, Canada delivered a formal diplomatic protest to Tel Aviv, calling on Israel to stop its bombardment. "He was a hero in Beirut. The fact that he stayed made him an enormous hit with the citizens," said Peyton LYON, a foreign-affairs analyst and long-time critic of Israel who knew Mr. ARCAND from the Middle East Discussion Group, an Ottawa salon for retired diplomats. "But he never got the recognition he and his wife deserved for staying behind."
Born in the wheat-farming region of eastern Alberta, Mr. ARCAND studied history at Laval and McMaster universities. It was at the latter where he met wife, the English-born Jennifer GARNER- ASHMORE, whose family was scandalized that she married a devout Catholic.
A career diplomat who joined the foreign service in 1957, Mr. ARCAND had postings to Czechoslovakia, Cameroon, Tanzania, the Vatican and Denmark under his belt before being assigned as ambassador to Lebanon (with concurrent accreditation to Jordan and Syria) in 1979, in the thick of the country's civil war. Despite regular firefights between Muslim and Christian factions, car bombings and sniper attacks, "life was fairly agreeable," recalled his son, now an economist with the French government. "A lot of people simply adapted."
Mr. ARCAND was among the first Western diplomats to discern a groundswell of Islamic fundamentalism. Officially, Canada forbade contacts with the Palestine Liberation Organization at the time unofficially, related his son, Mr. ARCAND had extensive dealings with the organization, including with Yasser Arafat.
His son believes that mandarins in Ottawa assumed his father had gone soft on Palestinians. "That's why people tend to get transferred. You end up being more of a representative to people you are accredited to than of your own country."
Following the tumult of Lebanon, Mr. ARCAND was sent to Hungary and followed that with a four-year stint in Ottawa as chief of protocol. After that, he returned to the Holy See, this time as ambassador. He loved the job. "The Vatican for him was most efficient intelligence-gathering organization in the world," his son said. "It was pure political work."
Back in Ottawa for good in 1993, Mr. ARCAND did a series of jobs at External Affairs involving protocol and security but his heart wasn't in it. His wife died the same year, said his son: "He could not fathom serving abroad without her."
Théodore Jean ARCAND was born in Bonnyville, Alberta., on June 25, 1934, and died in Montreal on April 16, 2005, of a heart attack. He was 70. Besides his son, he leaves three sisters.

Family fears 2 drowned in accident
Police searching Lake Scugog
Men jumped from boat to aid relative
By Scott ROBERTS, Staff Reporter
It was supposed to be a simple family outing, a relaxing fishing trip to celebrate the 31st birthday of Mohammad Asim KHAN.
But the celebration turned into mourning on Monday when KHAN drowned in Lake Scugog, near Port Perry, while trying to save his 25-year-old cousin.
Now, a Richmond Hill family is left to grieve the death of the man they describe as caring and intelligent, as police continue to search for the body of his 44-year-old uncle, Mohammad ASHRAF, who also leapt into the water in the same rescue effort and is presumed drowned.
"Everyone is having a tough time dealing with it," said Rashed MOHAMMAD, who worked with KHAN at a local software company.
"He was too good and that's why I believe he lived too short."
About a dozen family members left shore about 2 p.m. Monday after renting a 14-foot aluminum fishing boat and a larger pontoon boat at the Port Perry Marina.
Just over two hours later, around 4: 20 p.m., police responded to a 911 call indicating one man was unconscious and another missing after jumping into the water to save Basit KHAN, who had drifted away from the boat after jumping in the lake. Neither man was wearing a life jacket.
Basit KHAN, 25, was wearing a life jacket and survived the incident with no injuries.
What began as a rescue mission by police late Monday became a recovery effort yesterday in the search for ASHRAF's body.
The Durham Regional Police marine unit sifted through the murky water about 3 kilometres north of the Port Perry Marina as a helicopter patrolled the scene from above.
Police suspended the search last night. It will resume today.
Relatives who witnessed the incident are still trying to understand how the tragedy happened. They said both men knew how to swim.
Although Lake Scugog is shallow -- in most places ranging from 2 to 4 metres deep -- it is notoriously weedy and has deep pockets of mud at its base, local residents said. Many speculate that could have contributed to the deaths, although police would not comment on the possibility last night.
Family members gathered at KHAN's home in Richmond Hill yesterday, remembering him as a loving father and husband who always tried to help others.
"He never said 'no' to anyone," said friend Ayaz A. AYAZ. "He was always solving problems for people."
Mohammad Asim KHAN, who moved here from Pakistan about four years ago, leaves behind his wife, Sadaf KHAN, and two children, Aleeza, 3, and Abdul Samad, who is 6 months old.
"He died trying to save someone's life without thinking of his own," said Mohammad Imtiaz KHAN, the uncle of the deceased. "He's a hero to me."
Meanwhile, Mohammad Imtiaz KHAN prays that a miracle might save his brother-in-law, Ashraf, who moved to Canada just a year and a half ago from Karachi, Pakistan.
"I am hoping that he's going to call anytime to say that he's okay," he said.
The visitation for Mohammad Asim KHAN will take place today from 12: 45 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Islamic Foundation of Toronto, 441 Nugget Ave. in Scarborough.
KHAN's body will be flown on Friday to Pakistan, where he will be buried.

Aslam CHOUDHARY, 68: Community builder
Architect, 68, left impact on Islamic Centre of Canada
Mosque designer was 'best friend' for a lot of people
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Thousands on their way to or from work on the Queen Elizabeth Way see it daily, a graceful and silent minaret on the South Service Road in Mississauga. It belongs to the Islamic Centre of Canada, the country's largest mosque in terms of congregants 1,000 usually attend the first session of the Friday midday prayers and as many as 800 are at the second session. It is also the Canadian headquarters of the Islamic Society of North America.
But to many Canadian Muslims it represents much more than that.
"When you have that kind of building in the community, it shows you have a presence," said Mohammad ASHRAF, Islamic Society of North America Canada's secretary general. "It means to us that Muslims are part of the Canadian population."
To Aslam CHOUDHARY -- the man who helped design the Islamic Society of North America Centre, had its master key, and who was on call 24/7 as its project manager -- it was the prize of his entire career.
Before the centre opened officially in May 2001, he told his friend ASHRAF he was honoured to be building a spectacular facility that not only housed Canada's largest prayer room -- as well as a state-of-the-art co-ed high school, professional kitchen and bookstore -- but was also close to his Oakville home and would be his family's place of worship.
"He always said it was the closest to his home and the closest to his heart," ASHRAF said.
"Whenever he entered the mosque, people came to him," said his wife Kulsoom, who inevitably ended up waiting a half hour or more for him to make his way to the door.
"He couldn't just walk out of there. He was always the last one there. People wanted to ask him questions," said his son Kamran.
"He loved it when people enjoyed the building," said his daughter Naela.
But CHOUDHARY was a man of many mosques. With his long-time partner, Guido LAIKVE, he designed additions to the Jamia Masjid Mosque in Mississauga and the Islamic Centre of Cambridge.
He was responsible for the new Masumeen Islamic Centre in Brampton, two mosques in Hamilton, a Hindu temple and community centre in Brampton, at least one mosque and a Hindu temple in downtown Toronto as well as the Emmanuel Lutheran Manor, a North York apartment complex, community centre and chapel.
"My father and Guido always joked they would get into heaven one way or the other," Naela said.
They'd been a team since the mid-'70s, when they began working together for the Ontario government and decided to take extra work on the side.
"All the Islamic projects, they were Aslam's. He had the contacts, he had lots of Friends who'd offer projects to him. He was really in touch with the Islamic culture," LAIKVE said. "But he put his heart and soul into the Islamic Centre of Canada in Mississauga."
CHOUDHARY was right there in 1996 when the deal closed -- they paid $1.5 million in cash -- and ASHRAF got the key to what was then a warehouse that LAIKVE said was "an absolute shambles."
But CHOUDHARY never saw it that way. He was determined it would become a beacon and a mainstay for his community, even as they fought community opposition for four years.
CHOUDHARY always told his family and Friends they would win, and they did, although it took many, many community meetings and two hearings at the Ontario Municipal Board. CHOUDHARY was on call night and day as it was built -- and beamed throughout the 2001 opening ceremony attended by a plethora of dignitaries including Mayor Hazel McCALLION.
Then, four years later, his family and more than 700 grieving Friends gathered at the mosque for his funeral.
CHOUDHARY died October 11 at age 68.
At 5, CHOUDHARY was already designing houses. The second oldest of nine children, he was 12 when his father decided to move his family from Kenya back to Pakistan and move the family into a house his son had designed for the family. CHOUDHARY returned to Kenya at 21 to help support the family after his father died.
He took a clerical job while studying architectural drafting at night and by 1964 was working for a Nairobi architectural firm. He was there when Kulsoom phoned, telling him they had to leave the country. It was 1968, Kenya had just gained its independence and the headline on the front page of the Nation that day read: "Britain slams her door on Kenya nation."
"Are you crazy?" he said to her.
They had three days to leave; the airport was jammed with men like him heading to Britain and leaving behind their families until they could afford to send for them.
CHOUDHARY got a drafting job in Birmingham almost immediately the family reunited five months later.
In his first year in England, CHOUDHARY ended up designing and supervising the construction of the Coventry Mosque, typically waiving all fees.
In 1969 he helped found the Muslim East African Association of Birmingham -- it's still going today -- and took over the design and construction of the Central Birmingham Mosque, the city's first purpose-built mosque.
He didn't see its completion before moving his family -- which now consisted of twin sons Kamran and Imran as well as Naela to Canada in 1975.
"We fell in love with Canada. We said 'This is like Africa' -- the lakes, the greenery. We told each other 'This is home now,'" Kulsoom said.
Almost immediately he began teaching Muslim children about their religion at sessions held for seven years in their apartment, then later on Tuesday nights in a friend's basement. He was one of the founders of the Canadian East African Muslim Association, which today boasts about 300 members.
Before taking early retirement, CHOUDHARY worked in the architectural section of the Ontario Realty Corp. and on a stream of projects with LAIKVE.
He was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer in July.
It was only at his funeral, in the mosque he nurtured to life, did his family meet many of the people he had helped -- a man he'd helped get a job, another he'd helped do a drawing, gratis, and the stranger who told his family that he had gone to their dad "for everything."
"He was a lot of people's best friend," said his wife, marvelling that men and women were approaching her at the mosque and kissing her hand. "That was all because of him."
