WALSH, Garnet Ralph
of Markdale passed away on Saturday, April 9, 2005 after succumbing to smoke inhalation as a result of a small grass fire at his farm in Euphrasia Township. He is sadly missed by his wife of 52 years, Frances (THIBAUDEAU) WALSH. Sorrow surrounds his family members Valerie BROWN of Meaford, Barb and Manfred VOSS of Dundalk, Ralph and Sandy WALSH and Bill WALSH of Markdale. Garnet is also missed dearly by his five grandchildren Carol BROWN, Stephanie VOSS, Wendy, Emily and Charlie WALSH. The suddenness of his death was felt by his many nieces and nephews both from out West and in Southern Ontario. Garnet was the first born child to William & Queenie (BOWEN) WALSH of Markdale. He is predeceased by a sister Iris MILLS and her husband Glen of St. Catharines. He leaves a younger sister, Madeline MCINNES/MCINNIS of Edmonton, Alberta to mourn his passing. Garnet enjoyed his life as a farmer mostly, occasionally taking extra jobs picking apples or working at the local ski hills. He enjoyed time spent with family and Friends. In his later years he would often be seen on Sat. nights cheering on his favorite racers at Varney racetrack. Upon retiring, he kept busy on the farm helping Ralph and Bill with various jobs. Garnet was a genuine, caring, thoughtful and hard-working character. The family takes much comfort in believing that Garnet's death was not seen as tragic, as he got his ultimate wish to leave this world with his boots on, working on his well-loved farm. Visitation was held on Tues. April 12, 2005 and the family was overwhelmed by the out-pouring of support and comfort shown by family and Friends. A fitting tribute to this well-liked and well-respected man. A private funeral was held at the May Funeral Home on Wed. April 13, 2005 with Reverend Mark WAUGH offering words of comfort. A short remembrance was read by daughter-in-law, Sandy WALSH. Afterwards family and Friends along with Reverend WAUGH shared comforting words & thoughts at an interment of his cremated remains in the bush on his farm at a pre-chosen location cherished by Garnet. The family would like to thank all who made donations to the Markdale Hospital and Diabetes Assoc., sent flowers, brought food and patiently waited so long throughout the visitation to offer condolences. Special thanks go out to Grant and Brigitte MAY for their wonderful support, to Reverend Mark WAUGH for his words and extra time, to Doreen CARGOE and Marilyn WARD for help with the lunch and to Steve RUTLEDGE, Rob CAMERON, Scott COLVILLE for their support and help in carrying out Garnet's wishes.

CAMERON called 'classic journalist'
Canadian Press
Toronto -- Bill CAMERON, the intellectually challenging and erudite broadcast journalist who had a celebrated parting of the ways with Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Television in the wake of 1999 budget cuts, is dead. CAMERON died Friday of cancer of the esophagus which had moved into his brain and liver despite rounds of brutal chemotherapy, said a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation spokesperson.
He was 62.
"He was one of the last of the classic journalists," said Canadian Broadcasting Corporation senior executive documentary producer Mark STAROWICZ.
"The man was a terrific writer, a terrific correspondent, an anchor, a documentary writer and a documentary director," recalled STAROWICZ, who hired CAMERON in 1983 for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's news magazine program The Journal.
"A lot of people are good at one of those things. I can't think of anyone else that's good at all of those things."
CAMERON was born in Vancouver in 1943.
He got his first break in broadcasting at Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio in the 1960s as a freelance journalist. He later served as an editorial writer and columnist for the Toronto Star and as an associate editor at Maclean's magazine.
He appeared on Global television as host of Newsweek from 1978 to '83. He was also an anchor on Toronto's independent Citytv before joining The Journal as a reporter, producer and alternate host.
He spent nine years there and during his stint he journeyed to the United States and Britain, and to Jordan to cover the Persian Gulf crisis. He also reported from Mozambique and Nicaragua.
He was the show's final host when it signed off October 30, 1992.
"To me, he was a great interviewer," said Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's The National anchor Peter MANSBRIDGE, who worked with CAMERON at The Journal.
"He had a skill that few can match in terms of drawing people out in an interview," MANSBRIDGE told Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Newsworld from Stratford, Ontario "It was just a treat to watch him do that."
His death, "leaves a giant hole in Canadian journalism," he said.
After The Journal, CAMERON joined CBLT, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Toronto flagship station where he anchored the evening newscast, and won a Gemini Award for his efforts.
In September 1995, he joined Newsworld in Halifax as host of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Morning News, replacing Henry Champ who was moving to Washington. In 1999, he moved back to Toronto to host Sunday Report and daily newscasts for Newsworld and Newsworld International.
He co-wrote The Real Poverty Report, a study of the plight of the poor in Canada.
"He lived the journalistic spectrum," said friend and fellow journalist Peter Kent.
CAMERON's extensive experience was passed on through his role as educator at Toronto's Ryerson School of Journalism.
"He shared it with the up-and-comers quite freely," said Kent. "He wasn't a turf protector at all. He's a loss to the younger generation of journalists."
CAMERON also wrote plays and poetry, having been published by Random House.
CAMERON is survived by his wife, Cheryl HAWKES, a freelance journalist, and their three children.

Respected doctor most proud of his musical achievements
By Sarah FRALEY, Free Press Reporter
He was a Middlesex County coroner for almost four decades, a dedicated doctor and father to three children who all went into health care.
But John (Ozzie) MERRITT also will be remembered as a talented musician and a man who loved a good game of golf.
"(It) was a passion of his. He had three holes-in-one," said Rick MERRITT, his oldest son.
"His biggest passion and what I would say was his biggest success, was he was an accomplished musician."
MERRITT, who battled Alzheimer's disease in his final years, died June 10 at 89.
A talented piano player, MERRITT played with the Morgan Thomas Dance Band on radio shows broadcast coast-to-coast in the 1930s.
He also played at Port Stanley's Stork Club, which attracted such big-name musicians as Louis Armstrong and Guy Lombardo.
"What he achieved at piano most people never achieve," son Rick MERRITT said. "He had his teaching certificate by the time he was 16."
Born in Grimsby, MERRITT graduated from medical school at the University of Western Ontario in 1943. He began practising in Delaware after serving in the army until 1946.
After seven years, he moved to Lambeth and served as a coroner for London and Middlesex County for 39 years.
He retired from that job at 70 but practised medicine for seven more years, completely retiring in 1994.
Rick MERRITT, founder of the Dove Dental Centres, said he doesn't see the kind of dedication that his father had in the medical field today. A good work ethic was something his father inherited from his mother Ethel, he said.
"She always said 'If a job is worth doing, it is a job worth doing well, to the best of one's ability or it's a job not worth doing at all,' " he recalls.
MERRITT made that his life's philosophy.
Friends and colleagues remember him as an excellent physician.
"He was a solid practitioner and his patients loved him," said Howard CAMERON, an orthopedic surgeon in London. "He was always a perfect gentleman."
"He was a good friend and a good family man," added Don MacKENZIE, a London surgeon who attended medical school with MERRITT.
As a father, "he was always preparing you for being an adult," said his son. "He was a good all-around fellow but very strict. There wasn't a lot of compromise in his life."
As a child, Rick MERRITT said he learned valuable lessons -- such as the consequences of dangerous driving -- when he went with his father on house calls or to vehicle crashes.
MERRITT was proud all three of his children pursued medical professions. Rick and Robert MERRITT both went into dentistry, and daughter Linda BRAY is a registered nurse.

Earl CAMERON, Broadcaster: 1915-2005
The man with the distinctive, rich voice and famously unflinching face lent authority to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in the early days of television broadcasting. Never a journalist, 'I just read the words'
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, January 15, 2005 - Page S7
Toronto -- Earl CAMERON used to tell the story of how he once walked into a store and found a salesman staring at him.
"Fellow who reads the news on television looks just like you. Ever watch him?"
"No," said Mr. CAMERON, not telling a lie since he couldn't watch himself while he was doing his job.
Early on, he discovered the strange kind of fame that comes with appearing on television. Like the salesman, people thought they knew him but weren't sure.
"People often look at me in the street. They want to say hello, but aren't sure whether I'm somebody's brother or a guy they met recently at a party."
Earl CAMERON was a classic Canadian Broadcasting Corporation announcer, the voice of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's The National, which, in the early part of his tenure from 1959 to 1966, was the only national television newscast in the country. If Lorne GREENE was the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Voice of Doom, then Earl CAMERON was probably its voice from Mount Olympus -- listened to and trusted by the viewers.
"If Earl said it, you knew it was true and that, even with all the miseries, all was well with the world," said Knowlton NASH, who read The National long after Mr. CAMERON.
"He was the last anchor who was part of the old school of broadcasting," said Mr. NASH from his winter home in Naples, Florida "No matter how awful the news -- and he broadcast during the war -- he was always a reassuring presence, giving the impression there were better things ahead."
Mr. CAMERON will long be regarded as "the anchor's anchor" by the corporation. "His skill and professionalism contributed greatly to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's reputation for credibility, objectivity and dependability in our newsgathering and broadcasting, and in our role as Canada's national public broadcaster," said Richard STURSBERG, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television's executive vice-president. "He was truly a legend."
All told, Mr. CAMERON read more than 1,500 Canadian Broadcasting Corporation newscasts. His audience believed that if Mr. CAMERON said something -- anything -- then it had to be true. One woman went so far as to say, "he couldn't convince me that black is white, but if he said it, then I would certainly give it some thought."
Back in the days when news on television was a few talking heads and too many words, Mr. CAMERON appeared on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's 11 p.m. news broadcast and became a national institution. He read the news from a script, not a teleprompter, and was famous for his diction and flawless delivery.
His fans included those with an ear for perfectly spoken English. In 1966, television columnist Dennis BRAITHWAITE wrote in The Globe and Mail that "I consider him a uniquely talented news reader, the only one at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation who, in my hearing, has never made a mistake in phrasing or pronunciation."
Earl CAMERON was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan., during the early months of the First World War. He inherited his magnificent voice from his father, Ernest, who was described as having "one of the finest undiscovered bass-baritones in North America" by Sir Arthur Benjamin, the British composer who toured North America judging choral contests.
The elder Mr. CAMERON wanted Earl to become a teacher like his brother and two sisters. Earl did go to Saskatchewan Teachers College, but soon decided the vocation wasn't for him. He liked to tell a story of his brief career in the classroom. "I was hired to teach in a little town called Kildare. This was during the great Western drought of the '30s and it hadn't rained in Kildare for a long time. My second day on the job there was a downpour of 3½ inches. I figured I had done enough for the town, so I left."
Perhaps it wasn't a great idea at the height of the Depression, for he next found work shovelling coal for $18 a week. After that, he worked on the railway for 25 cents an hour. His break came when he heard of an audition for a summer job as an announcer at CHAB, the local Moose Jaw radio station.
"I had about 70 others competing against me for an announcing job. The whole public speaking class at the Young Men's Christian Association," quipped Mr. CAMERON, who had a droll sense of humour despite his unflinching, stone-faced persona. His distinctive, rumbling voice won him the job, and it quickly became permanent.
He soon moved to CKY in Winnipeg and stayed there for four years. The station was owned by the Manitoba Telephone Co. but, as it happened, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation also used the staff and facilities there and Mr. CAMERON quickly made a good impression. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation promptly lured him away and, in 1941, he arrived in Toronto. It wasn't long until he was reading the National Radio News.
After television arrived, Mr. CAMERON served as the backup for Larry HENDERSON, who was the reader at 11 p.m. When Mr. HENDERSON quit in 1959, Mr. CAMERON was given the job of reading the National News.
For the next seven years, he was a familiar face, opening the program with a nod of his head, a hint of a smile and a quiet "good evening." It was a no-nonsense approach to a no-nonsense subject, and both Mr. CAMERON and the network liked it that way. Then he got down to the serious stuff (commercials were not allowed during the news) and he worked hard to avoid the slightest gesture or change in inflection that might betray an emotion or a personal opinion. If the program's editors provided him with a "kicker" to end the newscast, he would permit himself an expression that might suggest a chuckle.
He was the anchor, a term that didn't make it into the Oxford English Dictionary until 1965, from 1959 to 1966. In many ways, he was the last of a breed.
"Earl was devastated when they decided to go with a journalistic anchor rather than a traditional broadcaster," says Larry STOUT, who was then a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation news writer and reporter. "He didn't think of himself as a journalist, but rather as a broadcaster."
That got him into a bit of trouble. Like other announcers, he was allowed to do commercial work. Mr. CAMERON had two big clients Crest toothpaste and Rambler, a car made by American Motors. The toothpaste ads caused some complaints of bias -- by politicians, among others -- and in 1965 Mr. CAMERON was given a choice: no more jobs doing ads if he wanted to keep his high-profile job reading the 11 o'clock news.
In the end, he chose the news over toothpaste, but a year later he was dumped anyway. Mr. CAMERON's replacement as the main reader on The National was Stanley BURK/BURKE, who had worked as a foreign correspondent. Mr. CAMERON took over rotating duties that included reading the early evening news that went across the country. He also introduced the opinion program Viewpoint.
Earl CAMERON was always strictly a newsreader. He wasn't allowed to change a comma of copy. It was a union regulation and not one he minded. "I just read the words."
While his diction may have been perfect, he was wrong on the direction that television news was taking. In 1967, he told the Toronto Telegram, "I've heard that Huntley and Brinkley and Walter Cronkite say that the era of the broadcast journalist is ending and here the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is just trying to start it."
The tradition at almost all television networks now is that the main newsreader is not "just an announcer" but someone who has advanced through the ranks as a reporter. The change did not occur overnight. Stanley BURK/BURKE quit and was replaced by announcers, including Lloyd ROBERTSON.
Peter KENT, a field reporter, read The National after Mr. ROBERTSON and he was followed by others of similar background. For all that, Mr. CAMERON and Mr. ROBERTSON were remembered as newsreaders by the audience and by the comedy troupe SCTV, which played on their names in a running sketch that featured rival anchors Earl Camembert and Floyd Robertson.
After Mr. CAMERON's demotion from his television job, he was still one of two readers for The World at Six on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio. And he stayed on, introducing Viewpoint until it was cancelled in January of 1976. A few months later, Mr. CAMERON retired after 32 years -- and the world seen through a Canadian television screen was never the same again. "He was very, very Canadian," said Mr. NASH. "As Canadian as wheat."
Earl CAMERON was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan., on June 12, 1915. He died Thursday in Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie, Ontario, after a lengthy illness. He was 89. He is survived by his wife, Adelaide and son Harold. He was predeceased by his son Clark, who died in a car accident in 1984. Funeral services will be held on Saturday.

Anna Kathleen CAMERON
By Roy CAMERON, Friday, March 11, 2005 Page A18
Admired family builder, dietitian, life artist. Born January 20, 1919, in Waterloo County, Ontario Died November 29, 2004, in Kitchener, of a stroke, aged 85.
Anna SHANTZ, a Mennonite child, didn't speak English until she went to school. She soon skipped grades, but modestly attributed this to the teacher's desire to reduce the number of classes in her one-room school. In high school, Anna was self-conscious because of her rural background. Her father died at this point, when she was 12. But determination to become a dietitian, a goal she ultimately achieved, kept her going.
Anna, a Swiss Mennonite pacifist, married Ewan CAMERON, a Scottish Presbyterian and a policeman who carried a gun. Anna was widowed at 44 when Ewan, then Kitchener's deputy police chief, died suddenly of a heart attack. Anna had four children (Roy, Hugh, Margaret, and Clare) aged 10 to 16, but no job, no income and no recent work experience. She was raising four teens, alone, in the turbulent 1960s.
She was grateful to be hired as a hospital dietitian. She eventually supervised 120 employees. She wrote in a memoir for her grandchildren that her "aim was to keep people happy in the workplace so that they were eager to come to work and give their best. The golden rule 'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you' was a good strategy."
Anna blossomed as a strong, independent woman. She was a good-humoured, but serious, activist. She chuckled when she told us of the time in the late 1960s when a car salesman had dismissively asked to speak with her husband. Bad move. She had him open the hood and provide technical details. As he left, she said she would buy the car -- from a dealer who took women seriously.
She was always resourceful, never a victim. Obscene phone call? She feigned deafness, repeatedly asked the caller to speak up, until he hung up in frustration.
She cherished her grandchildren (Melanie, Scot, Ewan, James, Elizabeth, David, Daniel and Thomas), their partners, and her great-grand_son, Owen. She gave them opportunities: she let Ewan rewire her house (under supervision!) in his teens, for experience. She held eagerly anticipated "granny and grandkids only" events that continued to the end.
She was inclusive. When marriages ended, daughters-in-law remained in the family, even as Anna embraced new relationships as they formed.
She stayed spunky as she aged. Her son Clare went to pick her up for a planned outing. She uncharacteristically had forgotten but was soon ready. The next night, he came again, and tried to dupe her by asking whether she was ready to go, even though nothing was planned. With a twinkle, she said, "Sure," grabbed her coat and deftly turned the tables.
Last May, she went to hospital by ambulance with a badly broken leg. When asked who should be notified, she said her busy children shouldn't be bothered until diagnostic work was done, and decisions had to be made.
Anna had grit and resilience. She rebounded from the premature deaths of her father, her husband and her grand_son David, who died in an accident at 11.
She died in bloom, engaged in life, as she had wished. A grocery receipt showed that she had returned from shopping just before she called 911. She died within hours. She had lived fully, was one of the gang, and in control right to the end.
Our mother had a powerful influence on our extended family. Scot, her grand_son, told her publicly at her 85th birthday celebration that he wanted to perpetuate the family culture she had created. He spoke for all of us. It's a legacy to prize.
Roy CAMERON is Anna's son.

Bill CAMERON, Journalist And Teacher 1943-2005
'Thinking-man's anchor' who was one of public broadcasting's true believers seemed destined for greatness until 1999 when he was among Canadian Broadcasting Corporation staffers cut by corporation number crunching, writes Joe FRIESEN
By Joe FRIESEN, Monday, March 14, 2005 Page S9
On the day he had brain surgery, Bill CAMERON, ever the consummate newsman, roused himself from the anesthetic to set the record straight. He had already started an argument with the nurses for taking his books away, and wasn't supposed to be reading or doing anything strenuous. But as he lay there, his head bandaged, listening to his neurosurgeon discuss the day's news, he couldn't help but interject to fill in the missing details.
"They were discussing something that had happened that day, and Bill seemed to know all about it," his wife Cheryl HAWKES said yesterday. "I said, you've been under anesthetic all day. How did you do that? How do you keep up like that?
"Somehow, he must have read the paper."
Originally from British Columbia, Mr. CAMERON spent his high-school years in Ottawa. His father was a prominent oceanographer and his mother died of cancer when he was a teenager. He attended the University of Toronto from 1962 to 1965, and spent much of his energy as a young man trying to forge a career as an actor and writer.
He got his start in journalism doing freelance work for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio, and at 25 was on the editorial board of the Toronto Star. In 1970, he was part of a breakaway group that wrote the Real Poverty Report in response to what they felt was a misreading of the situation by the Senate Committee on Poverty.
He moved to Maclean's magazine before eventually being hired by Global television in Toronto. Bill CUNNINGHAM, who was vice-president of television and current affairs at Global, said Mr. CAMERON came highly recommended. "I've often wondered if by taking him into television I didn't do him a bit of a disservice."
"It's not the kind of thing you win Pulitzer prizes for, turning out copy for an anchor, but he sure did it better than almost anyone I've ever seen," he said. "He could really turn a phrase."
By the mid-1970s, Mr. CAMERON had established himself in television, becoming a reporter and anchor for Global at a time of ambitious expansion at the station.
In 1978, Moses ZNAIMER at the upstart CityTV was looking to add some intellectual weight to his newscast. He leapt at the chance to hire Mr. CAMERON, who brought a natural gravitas with his Walter Cronkite-like delivery.
"Because we had the only 10 o'clock newscast [in Toronto], I wanted to make it more dignified, and Bill was perfect," Mr. ZNAIMER said. "Bill was a guy who believed that ideas matter and who believed that wrapping up the day's events in a pithy and elegant way was worthwhile."
It was not long after that Mr. CAMERON met Ms. HAWKES, a freelance journalist. It was August 15, 1980. She had been assigned to write a profile of the handsome, broad-shouldered anchor.
They met at the Blue Angel restaurant, and as she left at the end of the interview, Mr. CAMERON chased after her and said "I don't need a profile written about me. I need to marry you."
Later, he told her that he knew from the moment they first spoke on the telephone that he would ask her to marry him.
A few days after the interview, she watched him on television, looking for material for her story. She remembers seeing one of the short editorials he used to do at the end of the newscast. That night, he talked about his experiences at summer camp.
"I thought he was handsome, smart and really weird," she said. "I was just intrigued, I guess. He represented everything I thought I wanted in a partner."
It was a whirlwind romance. They were married four months later in December, 1980. The profile Ms. HAWKES submitted was published in Star Week the day of their wedding.
Mr. CAMERON left CityTV in 1983, after station executives decided his formal style was no longer a good fit for the hip urban market they coveted.
He was snapped up almost immediately by Mark STAROWICZ, executive producer of The Journal, and worked there during the heady days when the show was at the forefront of international current-affairs reporting.
He travelled to war zones in Mozambique, Croatia and the Persian Gulf with The Journal, producing work that colleagues said ranked with the best ever done at Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
Robin BENGER was a producer at The Journal who worked with Mr. CAMERON on a report on the civil war in the former Yugoslavia. He said Mr. CAMERON exuded a sense of calm even-handedness that allowed him to connect with people from all sides.
"He could interview a peasant in a potato field with the same equanimity and fairness as the president of a country," Mr. BENGER said. At one point, as shelling broke out around them while Mr. CAMERON was taping a direct-to-camera piece, he calmly worked his way into an ad lib, describing the shell bursts as the sound of giants dropping sandbags.
Away from the camera, Mr. CAMERON was a shy and private person who didn't covet the spotlight. He was a voracious reader who constantly had three or four books on the go. His wife said he would often roll out of bed clutching a book, ready to start the day.
"We have a picture of him floating on the Dead Sea, when he was on assignment with The Journal, reading. He could read in the most extraordinary circumstances," she said. "I think he had a great fear of getting caught somewhere without a book in his hand."
She said Mr. CAMERON felt he always had to be prepared for any kind of assignment, and so tried to know as much about everything as he possibly could. "It was like being married to my own Google search engine," she said.
And even with all the travelling his job required, he was always very close to his family. Mr. BENGER remembers his colleague, in the middle of a war zone, being anxious to get back to the hotel to hear how his son had fared on a math test that day.
Mr. CAMERON once described a 1983 documentary he did on the civil war in Mozambique as his best work. But it also raised doubts for him, which he expressed in an essay for the book The Newsmakers: Behind the Cameras with Canada's Top television Journalists.
He wrote about feeling the dreadful suspicion "that we dip into the surface of deep events, paddle with our feet, guard our comforts, patronize our contacts, exploit great tragedies for the good of our careers, and get the story wrong.... Maybe the real reporter is not necessarily the most talented but the one who can survive all this guilt, doubt, shame and suspicion, and get at least some part of the story home."
Mr. CAMERON was also one of the alternate anchors of The Journal who shared time with the late Barbara FRUM. But while Ms. FRUM was given glamorous interviews with the likes of Margaret Thatcher, Mr. CAMERON would be relegated to grilling Alan MacEachen in the show's second half.
Mr. STAROWICZ described him as the "thinking-man's anchor." And he was even given the chance to share his sense of humour in the Journal Diary segments, which Mr. STAROWICZ describes as "a cynical tour d'horizon, or Michael Moore before there was a Michael Moore."
Mr. CAMERON had been chosen to succeed Ms. FRUM as host after her death in 1992, Mr. STAROWICZ said, but the show was cancelled as a result of a power struggle at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Mr. STAROWICZ remembers the Journal staff gathering at a pool hall in Queen Street in Toronto and crowding around the television to hear Mr. CAMERON utter the show's final words: "Thank you for letting us serve you."
Mr. CAMERON considered himself one of public broadcasting's true believers, and was bitterly disappointed when he was eventually pushed out of the network in 1999 by a take-it-or-leave-it contract offer that promised a massive pay cut.
After having accepted assignments to host Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's local news in Toronto, where he won a Gemini award, and for a spell as Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Newsworld's morning anchor, he left the corporation for a short-lived public-relations job with American Gem Corp.
Friends say it's a shame that Mr. CAMERON never got the recognition, or the high-profile anchor job, that he deserved. "If he had a problem, it was that he was very bright, and appeared that way on camera," one former Journal staffer said.
In 2003, Mr. CAMERON became the media ethics chair at Ryerson University in Toronto. It was a good fit, Friends said, for he always took seriously his responsibility to his subjects.
Mr. HENDERSON remembers that Mr. CAMERON, before every televised interview, carefully warned his subjects that the tape was rolling and whatever they said could now be used against them. "He was a guy who was always in search of fairness. He was inquisitive, as every good journalist should be. But if he thought somebody was treated unfairly, it really hurt him."
His latter years were spent mainly on his writing, including a column in the National Post.
He was known as the best documentary writer in the country, and was called in to rescue scripts on some of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's highest-profile successes.
"His writing was just superb. It lifted up anything you were working on," Mr. HENDERSON, a senior producer for Canada: A People's History, said. In 2002, Mr. CAMERON directed his own documentary The Season, chronicling the harvest in Biggar, Saskatchewan.
He also published a novel, Cat's Crossing, a dark, literary portrait of Toronto, and before he died had finished a draft of his second novel, which centres around a freelance travel writer.
Mr. CAMERON, 62, died at his home in Toronto on Saturday, March 12, of esophageal cancer. He was surrounded by his family.
Bill CAMERON was born in Vancouver on January 23, 1943. He died of esophageal cancer at his home in Toronto in the early hours of Saturday morning. He was 62. He is survived by his wife, Cheryl HAWKES, and their children Patrick, 22, Rachel, 21, and Nick A Teacher Full Of Insight And Curiosity
When I walked into Bill CAMERON's class at Ryersen for the first time in the fall of 2003, I was shocked to see that my ethics teacher wasn't just the Mr. B. CAMERON listed on the timetable, but a genuine star of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. More astonishing, was that he lacked the celebrity attitude we've all come to expect from a star. Instead, what we got was a teacher full of insight and curiosity.
He didn't seek the spotlight; he was respectful; and he cared about what his students had to say. And when his class discussed the media business, he was never condescending, despite his wealth of experience. For someone who had been around the world and covered many of the great conflicts of the late 20th century, he was surprisingly interested in what a group of aspirants thought.
Of course, there was plenty of his own wisdom as well. In a discussion of the ethical implications of journalists carrying weapons in war zones, he casually mentioned that he had never thought it was a good idea. In Africa, it had once came up as an option but he dismissed it. He thought that any interview conducted by someone holding a lethal weapon was probably compromised.
I once approached him to ask about the ethics of going undercover to expose a professional essay-writing service used by university students. Bill discussed how it could be done in the most honest, straightforward way. He was adamant that the owners of the service could be persuaded to tell their side of the story, and eventually they did.
On the morning the story was published, Bill had already carefully read the student paper by the time I arrived. He said he thought we had got the ethics just right.
It was a compliment I will always treasure. -- Joe FRIESEN

Special thanks to the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care, and to nurse Maryam ZOLFI who made Bill's final hours in our household so serene. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor Street West, at Windermere, east of the Jane subway, Thursday, March 17 from 2-4 p.m. and from 7-9 p.m. Bill will be cremated.

I Remember -- Bill CAMERON
By Frank PEERS, Friday, March 25, 2005, Page S7
Frank PEERS, professor emeritus of political science at the University of Toronto, writes about Bill Cameron, whose obituary ran on March 14.
In 1989, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation asked me for an interview marking the inauguration of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Newsworld. I had, with others, made representations favouring a second channel, but not necessarily an all-news channel that the Caplan-Sauvageau commission had recommended. I was delighted to find that the interviewer was Bill CAMERON, whom I knew only for his work on The Journal in the previous six years.
During the interview, Bill showed an unusual degree of interest in my thoughts on how Newsworld should operate. Although I was long separated from the radio and television world, I had, until 1963, been head of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation public affairs and (in an advisory capacity) director of information programming, including news.
I expressed my preference for maintaining a distinction between a balanced news-reporting service and the more controversial representation of opinion in broadcasts that were labelled "public affairs" or, in later years, "current affairs."
Bill extended the interview beyond its intended length and challenged me in a most thoughtful way. I was pressed hard, and only the viewer could determine which interpretation was to be favoured. I regretted Bill's loss to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation some 10 years later and, even more, I regret his loss to Canadian journalism in 2005.

CAMPBELL, Dorothy Gertrude Bentinck Dejean
(September 11, 1910-March 18, 2005) Born in Toronto, Ontario, University of Western Ontario, 1933. Dorothy went to Washington, D.C. as a member of the British Missions in North America (1942-47) and worked in Information Services at the British Embassy. Married in 1951 to Charles H.

I Remember -- Bill CAMERON
By Anna GRAHAM, Wednesday, April 27, 2005, Page S7
Toronto -- Anna GRAHAM of Toronto writes about Bill CAMERON, whose obituary appeared on March 14
I met Bill CAMERON in early 2002 at Gran Festa -- a busy, plant-filled Italian restaurant in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, where I played classical guitar on Saturday nights during my last few years there. He approached me as I was finishing a piece and glanced at the pile of compact disks on the small table where I was set up beside a display of wine.
"May I buy a compact disk?"
"Of course. But, you're Bill CAMERON!"
He smiled. "You got it."
I wanted to ask why he had given up television, but instead told him how much I had enjoyed watching his newscasts and hearing him from time to time on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio's Sunday Morning. Then he asked about me.
We chatted for a few minutes. Before returning to his table he bought a compact disk and said, "I'm hosting Sunday morning this week. If I can, I'll play some of your compact disk," he turned it over in his hand. His parting words were emphatic: "Don't stop playing."
Looking back, I feel inspired by his enthusiasm for a working Canadian artist. Now a high school teacher, I also find time to practise and perform. Bill CAMERON's three small words keep me going.

SOLANDT, Omond, 1993 -- Died This Day
Tuesday, May 17, 2005, Page S9
Doctor born in Winnipeg in 1910.
Trained at the University of Toronto, he was among the students of Charles BEST, the co-discoverer of insulin. In 1939, he won a scholarship to continue his studies at Cambridge University. During the Second World War, the British government was concerned that the anticipated air raids would inflict heavy civilian casualties and took steps to establish a blood-transfusion service; he was instrumental in establishing such a system. In 1946, he was appointed director-general of defence research in Ottawa and was given the mandate to establish the Defence Research Board. He was the board chairman when psychiatrist Ewen CAMERON was conducting brainwashing experiments at McGill University that were secretly being financed by the Central Intelligence Agency; the victims later took the Central Intelligence Agency to court and Dr. SOLANDT was among those who condemned the experiments. From 1965 to 1971, he was both chancellor of the University of Toronto and chairman of the Science Council.

GROPPER, Naomi Laura (STEINER)
Born October 3, 1970 passed away peacefully on June 23, 2005 surrounded by her family.
Despite being diagnosed with a brain tumor almost year ago, Naomi continued to live her life to the fullest. She continued to have hope, and continued to give to, and draw strength from, an enormous group of family and Friends.
Naomi is survived by her husband, Daniel STEINER, her four year old son Benjamin and one year old daughter, Bella, her parents Arlene GLADSTONE and Hamish CAMERON and Mitchell and Lynne GROPPER, her grandmother, Zoe GROPPER, brother Daniel GROPPER (Tamara) Aaron GROPPER, Ross CAMERON, Hamish CAMERON (Patricia), Grant CAMERON and Dory CAMERON (Gordon) and Daniel's parents, Norma and George STEINER, as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
The family thanks Doctors Brian THIESSEN, Michael McKENZIE, Warren MASON, Beverly SPRING, Keith HATLELID and Lori MacFARLANE, as well as the caring nurses and staff of the British Columbia Cancer Agency and the Palliative Care Ward at Vancouver General Hospital for their support and guidance.
Naomi lived a full, but short life. She studied at Vancouver Talmud Torah and Magee High School. At 16 she traveled to France to attend school there. Her university education was at McGill (B.A., 1990), Hebrew University of Jerusalem (1989) and University of Toronto (M.B.A., 1998) where she was her class president. From 1994 to 1996 she worked, first as a volunteer, and then as a manager, at The United Way of Greater Vancouver. From 1988 to 2001 she worked as a management consultant with AT Kearney, dividing her time between her home with Daniel in Toronto and cities across North America, including New York where she and Daniel lived from 2000 to 2002. In 2002 Naomi and Daniel returned to Vancouver, where Naomi worked with Arts Umbrella where she was instrumental in the establishment of the endowment fund in honor of Carol Henriquez.
Naomi was also active in the community, as a board member of the Jewish Family Service Agency of Vancouver and co-chair of its 'Innovators Lunch' held in April 2004, and co-chair of the Ben Gurion Society and of the Family Day of the Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver.
Family and Friends were central to Naomi's life. She had the ability to touch each of them all of the time. Her children bear the indelible stamp of her love. She will be missed and remembered by many.
Funeral services will be held at Temple Sholom in Vancouver at 7190 Oak Street on Sunday, June 26, 2005 at 10: 00 a.m. with the burial to follow at Temple Sholom's Cemetery in White Rock. (Shiva arrangements will be announced at the funeral.)
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Naomi Fund at the Jewish Family Service Agency. The Naomi Fund will support families and individuals facing medical crisis in our community who are not fortunate enough to have a group of family and Friends such as those who were available to provide strength to Naomi. Please contact J.S.F.A. in Vancouver at 604-257 5151 or by mail to 305-1985 West Broadway Vancouver, British Columbia V6J 4Y3 for further information.

Jimmy LOGAN
By Carole Anne LOGAN, Monday, August 1, 2005, Page A12
Veteran, father, friend. Born August 20, 1925, in Glasgow, Scotland. Died April 16, in Burlington, Ontario, of a heart attack, aged Jimmy LOGAN was the eldest of five children of Martha and James LOGAN. He learned to speak up and speak often to be heard in that boisterous family. His father's position as a printer at Blackie and Sons sheltered them from the worst of the Depression. After school, Jimmy played a bugle with the Boys Brigade, worked as the milkman's assistant, and played football.
In 1939, as the Second World War began, Jimmy started in the shipyards as the apprentice of still another Jimmy -- Jimmy ADAM/ADAMS, who remained a lifelong friend. British shipyard workers were exempt from conscription but in defiance of that, he quit his apprenticeship when he turned 18 so he could join the Royal Engineers. His field company landed June 8, 1944, on Sword Beach near Ouistreham, France.
After Sapper LOGAN's part in Hitler's downfall, he returned to the shipyards, to the semi-professional football leagues and to the dancehalls. At the F and F (Fyfe and Fyfe) Dancehall, he met Anne McKAY. She was impressed by his light footwork, good manners and black wavy hair.
Friends suggested going to Canada and Jimmy was game for a new adventure. The group disembarked at Montreal in November, 1952, and travelled to Toronto. They found a rooming house on Logan Avenue and thought it a good omen. The landlady, Lottie, mothered her Scottish lads while they settled in. "Look," his friend Jim CAMERON said one day, "I've bought us all coffee shirts!" "T-shirts," corrected Lottie. "That disnae make ony sense," came the confused reply. "Everyone here drinks coffee."
Jimmy chose to stay. He proposed to Anne McKAY by letter and sent the money for an engagement ring. Anne arrived, accompanied by Jimmy ADAM/ADAMS' wife Mattie, a trousseau and a white wedding gown purchased in Glasgow after lengthy consultations between mothers, daughters and cousins. They married in St. Paul's Presbyterian in Hamilton before a surprisingly large number of Friends. Surprising unless you knew how easily Jimmy made Friends; he had invited everyone he knew.
They bought a house in Burlington that he stubbornly kept for 44 years. Jimmy worked in the engineering shop at International Harvester where his talents as a Clydebank sheet metal journeyman served well on the engineering team, which hand-built prototypes. He remained a strong supporter of the unions, acted as shop steward in the United Steelworkers local 2868.
Jimmy never lost his Maryhill accent. Canadians, even those who knew him well, can confirm that Jimmy could be indecipherable. Maddeningly, he also liked to talk. Anne and their daughter Carole Anne would roll their eyes and translate as needed. To Jimmy's closest Friends, translation was not necessary. They golfed, joked, and argued about politics and sports. In lieu of the families left in Scotland, they developed family-like connections that continue still. All their children were Canadian and being proud of his Canadian citizenship was not a conflict with Jimmy's pride at also being Scottish.
Retirement was a chance to golf and travel with Anne and Friends. He proudly helped raise his grand_son James. He loved that extended family of cousins and adopted cousins, especially the children since he could tell them the craziest stories and they actually listened! He beat cancer and heart attacks, struggled with arthritis but always kept talking. A heart attack unexpectedly took him. He had no time for last words, but Jimmy might have quoted his favourite poet, Robert Burns: It's coming yet, for a' that / That man to man, the warld o'er / Shall brothers be for a' that. It was his life motto.
Carole Anne is Jimmy's daughter.

Leo always believed and was quick to point out to others that his accomplishments, personally and professionally, were the result of their partnership. He valued Jean's love and support above all else. Leo was proud of his family and regularly shared that with his children. Leo received his elementary and secondary education in Gimli where through the encouragement of family and teachers he developed a lifelong interest in learning. He continued his education by obtaining his B.A. at United College in Winnipeg, and his M.A. in History from the University of Manitoba, and his Ph.D. in economics and history from the University of Wisconsin. Leo began his professional career in Saskatoon in 1959 as a researcher, professor and later administrator at the University of Saskatchewan. He retired in 1989 after 9 years as President of the University of Saskatchewan. Leo played a major role in the establishment of a new Agricultural Science Complex, the Institute for the Prevention of Handicaps, the Centre for Agricultural Medicine, the Meewasin Valley Authority and many other initiatives both within the university and with partnerships between the university and other parts of the community. Upon retirement, he returned to his childhood home in Gimli. Leo involved himself in contributing to his community. Through carpentry, fundraising, bringing ideas to fruition and other forms of leadership he found a role for himself in the community. He was happiest when he was immersed in a project. He received many honours over the years including: Member of the Order of Canada, an honourary Doctor of Laws from the University of Winnipeg, the Lieutenant-Governor's Medal of the Institute of Public Administration, the Saskatchewan Cooperative Order of Merit, and membership in the Saskatchewan Agriculture Hall of Fame. Since returning to Manitoba he received many awards and recognitions for volunteerism and heritage. He will always be remembered for the twinkle in his eye, a story for young or old, a strong sense of ethics, boundless patience and optimism. A special thanks to Dr Hobson and his staff for their caring Friendship and ensuring that Leo could fulfill his potential. Thanks also to Dr Rajput of Saskatoon and the Gimli medical staff for their great care. In lieu of flowers donations to the Parkinson's Society, 302-171 Donald Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3C 1M4 or another charity of your choice would be gratefully appreciated. A celebration of Leo's life will be held at the Gimli Park Pavilion on Saturday August 27 at 2 p.m. Neil Bardal Inc. 204- 949-2200

Dottie WILSON
By David WILSON, Friday, November 25, 2005, Page A24
Hospice pioneer, stepmother, wife. Born September 16, 1923, in Aurora, Ontario Died June 1 in Bayside, New York of heart failure, aged 81.
Dottie WILSON fervently believed that the traditional practice of forcing terminally ill patients through a gauntlet of pain in their process of dying, in the unrealistic, faint hope of miraculous recovery was morally indefensible, unnecessary and barbaric. And so in 1974, she became captivated with the new field of hospice and palliative-care medicine, just then being introduced into Canada at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal by Dr. Balfour Mount.
She immersed herself in the hospice movement, becoming the administrator of the palliative care service at the Royal Victoria Hospital, North America's first hospital-based hospice. In 1979, we left Quebec and moved to Chevy Chase, Md., to work with Elm Services Inc., one of the largest U.S. health care consulting firms. As their hospice consultant, she worked internationally with local health care organizations, teaching and encouraging hospice development.
In 1982, after completing a feasibility study of a hospice for children at Saint Mary's Hospital for Children in Bayside, New York Dottie was retained to oversee its design, construction and startup. The facility became the first hospice for children in the world. After its completion, she remained as its director for five years until her retirement.
Born Dorothy Nettie CLARKE in Aurora, Ontario, to Caroline and Ernest CLARKE, she was the second of three children, between older sister Mary Louise and younger brother Douglas.
Many years ago, I asked her father what he thought was the most important thing about a sign for my new store. I was stunned when he answered "that it not fall down." Yet it was fundamental, down-to-earth and revealed his methodical, basic and practical way of thinking. I believe that her father instilled that way of looking at things into her.
After graduating with a degree in sociology from the University of Toronto in 1946, she worked for several years with Dr. Perry Culver at the Massachusetts General Hospital until she moved to Montreal in 1951, where she became a systems and procedures analyst for what was then the RCA Victor company. She then became Canada's first female management consultant with the Montreal accounting firm of Riddell, Stead, Graham and Hutchison.
In 1959, she married David WILSON, a Montreal businessman and later a psychoanalyst and group therapist in New York City. This marriage was her second.
Dottie is remembered for her skill in empowering the infant dreams of nascent startups in the health care field. Her expertise was honed in guiding the development of her husband's many startup projects.
After her retirement from Saint Mary's, Dottie helped Dr. Louis Ormont create the Center for Group Studies. Ironically, Dottie herself was forced into the gauntlet of severe pain by the development of an excruciating ulcer during a recent hospitalization for disorientation. She knew that common hospice protocols for wound care might have avoided this tragedy, so, after weeks of pointless suffering, and recognizing the hopelessness of her situation, she chose to enter a local hospice program. She knew that the hospice focus on the quality of life, rather than clinging to life at any cost, would help her win the relief she deserved.
She is survived by her husband David WILSON, her nephews Rory CAMERON, Gordon CAMERON and David CLARKE, and her nieces Susan CAMERON, Margaret McCUTCHEON, Wendy ZAROWSKI and Sandra RANA. Stepsons David Andrew WILSON, Daniel Thompson WILSON and Douglas S. WILSON will sorely miss her.
David is Dottie's husband.

Lucy HOPKINS, Real Estate Agent (1926-2005)
In 1969, Toronto's first millionaire female realtor was declared champion of all agents in North America regardless of gender
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, December 24, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- In 1970, a headline in the Toronto Telegram proclaimed "The best salesman is a lady called Lucy." That was Lucy HOPKINS.
Mrs. HOPKINS was a pioneering real estate agent, whose aggressive sales impetus spawned an entry of females into the industry en masse as the 1970s dawned. In an industry where most real estate agents were, and are, still male, Mrs. HOPKINS was a star, earning the distinction of commanding more than $60,000 in commission in 1969, exceptional coin for that era. That made her the champion of real estate agents in North America, including men and women.
Mrs. HOPKINS sold 80 homes in 1969, some for as much as $2.5-million, thus vaulting her into the Millionaires Club and into the headlines with the result that many women flocked to real estate. Nowadays, the Toronto Real Estate Board says about 40 per cent of agents under its jurisdiction are women.
"We're always the last people to arrive at parties or things like that because just before we leave I always get an offer I have to check," Mrs. HOPKINS told the Telegram, explaining her success.
"She's sold just about every type of house there is -- except hydro substations," her husband Richard said in the same story.
The joke about hydro substations was in reference to the time she was making cold calls as an Avon salesperson. One day, she stumbled upon a hydro substation that was disguised to look like a residential property. No one answered the door. She peered through the window and discovered the occupants of the property were transformers, not human beings.
"They make the substations look like houses in the residential areas with venetian blinds, even," Mrs. HOPKINS said, in explaining the embarrassment. "It's hard to recognize them."
That occurred when the Avon lady slung the bag on her shoulder, her daughter Barbara PAYNE said. "Today, they do a lot of their selling by phone or on the Internet."
Lucy HOPKINS was born in Ukraine and spent time in a labour camp in Germany during the Second World War. Later, to escape hardships, her mother brought her to Canada without knowing if her husband survived the war. Eventually, they found out he was alive but never saw him again.
In Toronto, Mrs. HOPKINS first worked as a legal secretary for $60 a week. In no time, she was selling cosmetics for Avon, winning many awards in the process, one of which was presented to her at a U.S. convention by actress Joan Crawford. Two years later, her shoulders complaining from all the constant lugging of the product bag, she decided to switch to real estate. She reckoned all an agent needed was a light bag or purse.
"Although she won many awards with Avon, this did not challenge her ability to develop new ideas," said her friend Al CAMERON.
She remained in real estate for about 20 years, routinely working 10 hours a day, and formed her own company in Toronto's Markland Wood district, which was her own West End neighbourhood. "I doubt if there is a house in Markland Wood that she didn't sell at some time or other," Mr. CAMERON said.
In the process she became a millionaire.
"My mother worked very hard at real estate," her daughter said. "Even if it was Christmas, she was off checking out property with clients."
In 1985, Mrs. HOPKINS retired for health reasons and instead devoted much of her time to Probus activity groups that are aimed at retired business people.
"Lucy was a kind person who liked to work in the background and didn't expect credit for her accomplishments," Mr. CAMERON said. "She was intelligent, classy and charming. She was a founding member of Probus Etobicoke and was instrumental in finding a core of people to start the club by door-to-door canvassing for members and by advertising in local newspapers."
Because of her, Probus membership leapt by 200 per cent within three years.
Lucy HOPKINS was born January 11, 1926, in Ukraine. She died of cancer on October 5, 2005, in Toronto. She is survived by her daughter Barbara. She was predeceased by her husband Richard.

Earl CAMERON, 89, voice of the National
News anchor retired in 1976
Was announcer at Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for 32 years
By Jim BAWDEN, Television Columnist, Page A18
Earl CAMERON was often called Canada's best-known anonymous man. The onetime warehouse worker from Moose Jaw became Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's " Voice of Doom" when he replaced Lorne GREENE on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's national radio news in the late 1940s and Larry HENDERSON on The National in 1959.
CAMERON, 89, one of only seven men to anchor The National, died Thursday in Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie after a lengthy illness.
Over the years, CAMERON's uncanny resemblance to the mythical "man-in-the-street" Canadian made him a well-respected television figure. Television critic Bob BLACKBURN wrote in 1965: " CAMERON is not just the image of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation news, he is the cultivated image of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation itself: solid, patriarchal, Gibraltary!"
CAMERON took early retirement from Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1976, at age 61 and after 32 years with the corporation. Throughout his Canadian Broadcasting Corporation career, he had always been officially a staff announcer. He remained one of the regular newsreaders on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio's The World At Six but had become disappointed over his decreasing role on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Television.
On his last day, he simply dropped off a note for his department head and left for Florida. That was in keeping with a man who was typically "quiet, not ostentatious" said CTV anchor Lloyd ROBERTSON, who knew CAMERON from his early days at Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
"I came to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1954 and we were required to do it all. A typical day for Earl involved reading weather on radio, then hosting a radio jazz show, doing station breaks, too. At 9: 30 he'd stroll over to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation News' studio to begin script rehearsals for The National, which went live at 11 p.m. He had to do it all, and he did so calmly, rarely making a mistake. We were required to memorize the pronunciation of difficult names and foreign words, and Earl made it all seem very natural."
Born in 1915, CAMERON ran the gamut of business training and normal school in his Moose Jaw hometown. Local radio station CHAB hired him as a summer replacement at $20 a month.
CAMERON said in 1966 that,1" got the best advice ever from my first boss. He explained to me I was reading for just one person. He said to go into a house, and you'll find one person listening to a radio. Try to talk to just this one person."
CAMERON later moved to Winnipeg radio station CKY for a year, and in 1944 joined Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio in Toronto, from which he rose to top anchor status.
In 1965 Canadian Broadcasting Corporation executives began publicly grumbling that CAMERON was doing too many outside commercials. His association with Rambler cars and Crest toothpaste, though allowed by the union contract, was unseemly for the voice of The National, they said. Under intense pressure, he ended his lucrative contracts.
His television star went into eclipse the next year, when he was replaced as headliner of The National by Stanley BURK/BURKE.
There was never any doubt about CAMERON's announcing abilities his reading was impeccable, but it was the system that was at issue. He was dropped in an effort to break the union jurisdiction which dictated that newsmen could write the scripts but announcers could only read it on air.
Television critic Dennis BRAITHWAITE wrote at the time: "The national news didn't make Earl CAMERON. He made the national news."
CAMERON did not mention his departure on air. For his last broadcast as announcer he simply said, "Now this is Earl CAMERON, saying goodnight for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Television News."
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation offered him a job as host of the public affairs series Viewpoint, reading viewers' letters, but that show was canned in 1976 after an 18-year run.
Retired, CAMERON moved his family to LeFroy, on Lake Simcoe. He did commercials for American Motors and Krona margarine, golfed daily and watched Global's 6 p.m. news.
His retirement didn't stop SCTV from satirizing him and Lloyd ROBERTSON as duelling, argumentative anchors Earl Camembert and Floyd Robertson in skits CAMERON liked because "in this business a little publicity always helps."
CAMERON leaves his wife, Patty; son, Hal; and three grandchildren.

Ontario Land Surveyor (877) Retired. Peacefully, at the Penetanguishene General Hospital, on Wednesday, January 26, 2005 in his 77th year. Beloved husband of Carol (YURATOVAC,) dear father of Carol, Linda (husband Harold), John (wife Nicola), Jim and Nancy. Loving grandfather to Brittany, Mieka, Karl and Anthony. Cousin of George KIDD. Born and raised in Toronto, he was comissioned as an Ontario Land Surveyor in 1956 while with the firm of A. Cook. In 1960, he moved to Browne and Cavell, eventually acquiring the firm from Edward Cavell and leading the organization under the new name of Browne, Cavell and Jackson Ltd. His company flourished for 33 years with Bill earning the unwaivering respect of peers and clients alike. Later he relocated the practice to the Township of Tiny in 1983 under the name of Wm. Jackson Surveying Ltd. In 1991 he retired, devoting his time to community service with the Committee of Adjustments for Tiny Township and, for a short period of time, to the Committee of Adjustments for Penetanguishene. Bill was a real people person who enjoyed engaging conversation and helping others whenever he could. He was an avid outdoorsman who spent many relaxing hours fishing, hunting, and observing the birds in his garden. As a Charter Member of the Islington Sportsman Club, Bill was proud to serve as the Club's former president. Family and Friends will sadly miss his intellect, honesty, humour, and creativity. The family sincerely appreciates the compassionate care provided by Dr. Peter CAMERON and the health care staff at Penetanguishene General Hospital. Visitation will be held at the Nicholls Funeral Home, 330 Midland Ave., Midland, on Friday, January 28th from 1: 00 - 2:30 p.m. The funeral service will be in the chapel at 2: 30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Penetanguishene General Hospital - Level 1 would be appreciated.

'Mac' led heady days at CHUM
Disk Jockey Bob McADOREY as popular as music
'Bon vivant' later a Global television fixture
By Jim BAWDEN, Television COLUMNIST
Bob McADOREY helped usher in radio's rock 'n' roll era and set the musical agenda for a generation of Toronto teens.
Few today realize the power that Disk Jockeys like McADOREY exerted over Toronto popular culture 40 years ago, when radio ruled. It was a cozy time for music -- and then CHUM entered the fray, blew the cobwebs away and ushered in the crazy days of rock broadcasting.
McADOREY, 69, died Saturday at St. Catharines' Hotel Dieu hospital after a long illness.
McADOREY grew up in Niagara Falls and attended Stamford Collegiate, also the alma mater of Titanic director James CAMERON. He was in the same graduating class as Barbara FRUM, the legendary Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television interviewer.
As a teen, McADOREY won a province-wide public speaking contest and was the popular president of his high school fraternity.
He also played ragtime piano.
"Crowds would go around him," said his older brother, Terry McADOREY.
McADOREY's radio career started in 1953 when the Niagara Falls native first signed on with CHVC near the Falls, introducing listeners to his unique style of easy-going patter.
"I looked like Buddy Holly back then," McADOREY told the Toronto Star in a 1981 interview. "I weighed about 95 pounds and we played songs like 'Que Sera Sera.' Everything was a lot softer, smoother then."
After additional stops in London, Guelph, Hamilton and Dawson Creek, McADOREY wound up at Toronto's CHUM, coaxed to climb aboard by resident star Disk Jockey Al BOLISKA.
"I'd lived with Al above a variety store in London and he kept telling me to come to CHUM. I asked for $600 a month, after all Gordie TAPP was making $100 a week, and to my surprise I got the job."
Starting in 1960, McADOREY began a stint that many people consider rock programming at its finest: brash, spontaneous and pretty wild. And the Disk Jockeys were the stars.
CHUM became the rock station to listen to and McADOREY was the man who told you if a song was going places. The guy who hung out with The Beatles and The Stones when they were in town (and introduced them from the stage) was known simply as "Mac."
For years, he hosted the all-important 4 to 7 p.m. slot. CHUM's chart of the week's top records was posted everywhere: in record stores and high school lockers. Eaton's and Simpson's would only stock those 45s that were on the CHUM list. When a new record called "The Unicorn" came in, McADOREY liked it so much he immediately put it on the air and it sold 140,000 copies in Canada in two weeks and made The Irish Rovers.
Thinking back on those heady days, McADOREY said, "We kept it all clean up here. There was no payola as in the U.S. and we deliberately helped a lot of Canadians. It was personality radio. We were promoted like crazy back then. And the pressures were unbelievable. We dictated what records were going to go. And what kids would eat, drink.
"I could have written five books about what happened at CHUM. There'd be one book if I saved my memos. The most frightening thing was the British invasion. There weren't enough cops to handle the crowds -- it was out of control."
Off the air, he was a bon vivant, said 72-year-old Terry McADOREY.
"We did a lot of drinking. He was a good friend of Ronnie HAWKINS."
In 1968, the CHUM deal fizzled. When owner Al WATERS brought in American consultants, McADOREY felt the business was becoming too heavily formatted and left.
McADOREY headed to CFGM in Richmond Hill, which was trying to invade Toronto with a country music format. As morning man, he energized the station. He moved to CFTR in 1970 and after a few years returned to CFGM.
A constant listener was Bill CUNNINGHAM, head of Global television news, and he asked McADOREY to contribute satirical bits, which eventually became a full-time job.
Sample segment: during an airline strike McADOREY headed out to Terminal 2 with bowling equipment and pins to demonstrate the building was only of use as a bowling alley. Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers saw nothing funny in this and whisked him out as the piece was being filmed.
Another time during a city campaign to get dog owners to scoop up deposits, McADOREY and a cameraman went out to do field tests, which consisted of chasing terrified dogs whose owners had failed the test.
By 1980, he was entertainment editor. In 1983, Global tried to fire him when he disagreed over assignments. Global's Three Guys at noon telecast was a big hit (the others: Mike Anscombe and John Dawe) and hundreds of daily phone calls forced management to reconsider. For a time, Global even outperformed Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Midday.
McADOREY later got his own afternoon entertainment show where he'd report from movie junkets and comment on the entertainment scene.
I last chatted with him in 2000 when he was railing against Global's retirement-at-65 rule. But he looked frail and had been off for months after a fainting attack.
McADOREY had a farm at Gormley and a place in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Despite his television success he still yearned for the golden days of radio: "I'd walk into the booth in pyjama tops and jeans and talk one-on-one to people. At least that's the way I always imagined it."
McADOREY leaves daughter Colleen, her husband Jim TATTI, a Global sports broadcaster, and four grandchildren.
He was predeceased by his wife Willa, daughter Robin and son Terry.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday at St. Patrick's Church in Niagara Falls.

Cancer battle claims admired journalist
By Antonia ZERBISIAS, Media Columnist
The wonder is, Bill CAMERON did not author his own obituary.
For here was a man who is acknowledged as the greatest writer of his generation of Canadian journalists, whose words graced the page, the stage, the screen, the classroom and, of course, the airwaves.
CAMERON, 62, died at his Toronto home just after midnight yesterday, after a 20-month struggle with esophageal cancer, surrounded by his wife, Cheryl HAWKES, and his children Patrick, 22, Rachel, 21, and Nick 15.
"He was trying to hold us in his arms," said HAWKES yesterday. "But he was too weak."
Respected, admired, and loved, CAMERON was, what friend and former Canadian Broadcasting Corporation colleague Fred LANGAN called yesterday, "a triple threat," the consummate anchor, journalist and writer.
But he was more than that.
From his start as a freelance entertainment critic for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and CTV, to penning an editorial column at the Toronto Star at the age of 25, to editing for the nascent Global news, to anchoring at Citytv in the 1970s, to covering foreign assignments and co-hosting for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's nightly newsmagazine The Journal, to anchoring Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television's local news, to fronting Newsworld's morning show, to writing novels and ghosting documentary scripts for others, to playing the anchor on the Comedy Network's Puppets Who Kill, there was no journalism job CAMERON could not do -- and do well.
"Who the hell is good at all those things?" asked Mark STAROWICZ, the producer who hired CAMERON in 1983 to report and fill in as an anchor on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's The Journal and Midday.
Which is why, when the Journal went off the air in 1992, it was CAMERON, tapped to succeed the late Barbara FRUM as host, who delivered the eloquent goodbye to viewers: "I'd like to leave you with the words you find on the back of the cheque you get at any coffee shop in Canada. Thank you for letting us serve you."
What CAMERON had was a voice, and even at the end, when he could barely use it, he still slapped on his make-up to host his i-channel talk show, as well as act as fill-in interviewer on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio's As It Happens.
His last big interview was with the Dalai Lama, for the documentary The Dalai Lama: The Power of Compassion that aired last week on i-channel.
"He was a master of the interview," said Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Peter MANSBRIDGE, who recalled CAMERON giving him some pointers last fall at a party in his honour.
About 200 Friends and colleagues, from all the networks and the print media where CAMERON had worked, gathered at Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to show their support.
"He really kept his sense of humour," said Global's Peter KENT. "He'd go through the chemo sessions -- and was brutalized by them -- but then he'd come up for air and talk to Friends and inquire about others."
"Everybody has this idea that he was such a serious guy," said Valerie PRINGLE, with whom he worked on Midday. "But I remember when the opportunity came up to interview Big Bird, he wrestled me to the ground and said, 'It's mine.'
"I can remember he was doing an interview, with a cop or something, and he said, 'Well, I've shoplifted, I've smoked dope,'" PRINGLE laughed. "We all just dropped our coffees."
What CAMERON cared about was his family and journalism.
"He worshipped his wife and children," said PRINGLE, describing a Valentine's Day tribute that CAMERON had published. "It just made you cry. I thought this guy was so madly in love with Cheryl, I can't even stand it."
In fact, it was love at first sight.
HAWKES met him in 1980, when she was doing a freelance profile on him for Star Week magazine.
"He followed me out of the restaurant and tried to talk me out of writing the story," she said yesterday. "He said 'I don't need publicity; I need to marry you.'"
They were wed four months later. But he would leave her often to take on dangerous assignments for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, flying in and out of the hellholes of the world.
STAROWICZ described one assignment in which CAMERON was talking to the camera, with bombs exploding around him, but he barely flinched.
In fact, "he was talking in perfect paragraphs."
But it seems that CAMERON, who has held the journalism ethics chair at Ryerson University, also worried about the ethical hazards of war reporting.
As he wrote in 1990, "That's the dreadful suspicion: That we dip into the surface of deep events, paddle with our feet, guard our comforts, patronize our contacts, exploit great tragedies for the good of our careers, and get the story wrong."
CAMERON wanted to get the story not only right, but also exactly, perfectly, precisely right.
"He had one of the most discerning ears," said Citytv's Mark DAILEY, who worked with CAMERON when he was the anchor of the 10 p.m. newscast. "He was a very important part of our early conscience at Citypulse."
MANSBRIDGE remembered one evening co-hosting with CAMERON on the Journal. It was a time of intense rivalries between the National and the newsmagazine and few people expected the pairing to go well.
But, said MANSBRIDGE, in the middle of a technical interview on a financial story, CAMERON slipped him an idea, which improved the segment.
"That underlined that this was a guy who cared about the product, who cared about how we did things," MANSBRIDGE said.
"He studied acting which is one of the reasons he could be a little arch on television," LANGAN said. "He knew how to manipulate words more than the average announcer."
A journalist to the end, CAMERON documented his battle with his cancer for an upcoming feature in Walrus magazine. His most recent piece was a witty look... at caskets.
That's why it is so surprising he didn't leave some notes for the occasion of the death, one he knew was coming much too fast and too soon.

CAMERON, William Lorne
(broadcaster, journalist, writer, novelist, actor/playwright)
Bill CAMERON, our most loved and cherished husband, father and friend, passed away peacefully at home in Toronto just after midnight Saturday morning, March 12, 2005, surrounded and embraced by his family. Bill was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in May, 2004, and spent the next nine months in a fierce battle to defy the odds his doctors gave him. His treatment included: radiation, chemotherapy, surgery, acupuncture and Chinese medicine, an arsenal of supplements, visualization, chigong exercise and the loving hands and prayers of Friends who raised his spirits and suffused his already fierce will to live with relentless and bold expressions of their love. He was strengthened by it all, but ultimately succumbed. He was 62. Bill leaves behind his wife of 24 years, lover and best friend, Cheryl HAWKES; his children Patrick, Rachel and Nicholas CAMERON and son Sean PATENAUDE; his parents, Dr. William M. CAMERON, C.M. and Dr. Ruth Hoyt CAMERON of West Vancouver, British Columbia, his sister Robin CRAIG and brother-in-law, David, niece and nephew Lorna and Andrew CRAIG, of Toronto. Bill's mother, Lorna Bingham CAMERON, died in 1959. He also leaves his supportive and loving network of family, Friends, neighbours and former colleagues from all corners of the media and arts world. Special thanks to the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care, and to nurse Maryam ZOLFI who made Bill's final hours in our household so serene. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor Street West, at Windermere, east of the Jane subway, Thursday, March 17 from 2-4 p.m. and from 7-9 p.m. Bill will be cremated.

In memory of Bill CAMERON, my dear comrade
It is so absurd, the fate he met
By Joe FIORITO
My friend Bill CAMERON died at the end of a strange week.
A girl was tossed from an overpass by her father, who then leapt after her; he did not survive the bounce; she still clings to life. A deranged man set himself on fire in front of the provincial Legislature during a protest by farmers; under the wail of the sirens, a farmer muttered that it was a shame the message of the protest would be lost. And a homeless woman was dragged under the wheels of a police car which, luckily for her, came to rest in front of a downtown hospital in the early morning. Add a wandering cat to this mess and you might have a scene from Bill's blistering novel, Cat's Crossing.
The cat has now crossed.
I did not know Bill as well as some others but when I was new to this town he welcomed me with a short sweet note. He had a talent for Friendship. He called me, with a certain irony, comrade.
There was a time when we were leftish conspirators on a right-wing rag. We were among those bumped off the payroll, a week after 9/11, in the midst of our furious labours. Bill, who was in a rented car on his way to an assignment in the United States, was dismissed over the phone.
Troubling for the man was the fact that he had kids in school troubling for the journalist was that there were stories he did not get to tell.
And so we licked our wounds together a time or two after that, chasing the foul taste with fine drinks in a quiet bar. Bill was not one who bore a grudge but neither was he able to forget any rat who snatched bread from his table.
Oh, my dear comrade.
He was a big handsome man. He looked good on television. The reason he looked good was because he always knew the story cold. You saw it in his eyes. He was intelligent, but he was above all human. He knew that the absurd was the obverse of the tragic.
And so it is absurd that one of the best broadcasters in the country has died of cancer of the esophagus; as if some malignant bits of those hard sad stories he told us for so long got stuck in his throat. But it is tragic that he has left his lovely Cheryl, and his handsome children, much too soon.
He and I were really just getting to know each other. Often, when we went for drinks, he had a soda; he knew, as all men come to know, that there are times when form is more important than content.
We talked books, we griped about publishers, we gossiped about the current state of the press; he made outrageous puns; mostly we talked about how to tell stories. A measure of the man is that he had been around the world on assignment, but he never indulged in the boring telling and re-telling of old stories from the last of his wars. I never heard him say, "When I was in Africa..." His eyes were on the next story, not the last one.
I felt good in his company. I was just settling into his Friendship. He flattered me with his questions, and he paid me the compliment of honest answers to questions I asked him.
I always knew him as a superior broadcaster. When he anchored the news, you were confident he was telling the truth. He made it look easy. It is not. He asked the good hard straight questions in such a way that we all thought, why, those were the very questions we would ask if we were in his chair.
To hear him on the radio was to hear his mind at work. You felt thoughtful as you listened. This is what I think: The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation was stupid to have let him leave, just as it was foolish not to court him back.
Bill was not just a good reporter. He wrote from the inside out. He brought you with him to where he was and let you see what he saw. I recall a piece he wrote about driving east with his son, taking the young man to university. It was one of those occasions when father and son are alone as equals, save for who got to put what music in the car stereo. He made it fresh, and that is the highest compliment I can pay.
Bill bore his illness with intelligence, with humour and dignity and, at least in public, with a quiet courage. If there was rage and if there were fears, and there must have been, he hid these from his Friends. He knew he was going to get better. He was Bill CAMERON, and so we believed him.
I miss him now. I mourn his loss. He has gone ahead of us, as usual. He is up there now, on assignment.
Later, comrade.

Youth killed hitching ride on car
Teen horsing around' on rollerblades
Dies in the arms of his older brother
By Stan JOSEY, Staff Reporter
A Pickering youth died in his brother's arms after being run over by a car he had been hitching a ride on while rollerblading.
Derek CAMERON, 15, was "horsing around" on the street outside his family home on Rawlings Dr. about 4: 30 p.m. Wednesday when the accident happened, police said. Derek's father, Scott CAMERON, learned about his son's death while on holiday in Myrtle Beach and rushed home to be with his family last night.
He said his son was an avid hockey player since the age of 6 and wore number 17 on a Pickering house league minor midget team.
"He was a terrific kid and an excellent hockey player," his father said in an interview. "He was full of energy and lived on the edge."
His 17-year-old brother Danny helped set up a memorial to his brother on a street-side hydro transformer outside the family home yesterday.
Derek's blue, white and red hockey jersey was draped over the front of the green box, with several pictures of the boy growing up and in his hockey jersey lovingly placed on top.
In front were some flowers and the words "Love Mom Dad and Danny."
Family friend Shelagh NICHOLS called Derek "a wonderful kid who grew up with one of my sons. We lived just across the back fence. He was just a very athletic kid who loved his brother and people in general.
"He was a real firecracker," she said.
Durham Region police said they are still trying to fit the pieces together to find out exactly what happened on the quiet residential street in the Kingston Rd. and Dixie Rd. area of Pickering. Investigators will say only that the youth was wearing rollerblades while he was hitching a ride from a 1997 Dodge Neon being driven by a 20-year-old woman whom he knew. It is not clear if the youth was beside or behind the vehicle, Sgt. Paul McCURBIN said.
Somehow he fell under the wheels of the car and suffered severe head injuries. He was comforted by his brother, Friends and neighbours until an ambulance arrived. He was transported to Rouge Valley Ajax and Pickering hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
"It is no fun having your brother die in your arms," an emotional Danny CAMERON said outside his house, as he was comforted by Friends.
Family and Friends are planning a memorial service for Derek today.

This woman was known and loved by many and has left us to be with her father Allan Charles, her Aunt Eileen and Uncle Bill BURTON, Uncle Norman, her grandparents, her cousin Brent BURTON, and her dear friend Kelly. Be comforted knowing they will receive her in peace. Lesilee was born in Edmonton, schooled in Toronto, and lived in Vancouver, Ottawa and Kemptville before relocating to Winnipeg in 1997. Lesilee's passion for people was always demonstrated through the generous giving of her time, her energy and a genuine sense of caring. She was willing to help anyone who needed anything and Lesilee's life led her along many paths - no, many, many paths... She loved photography, she loved animals, she loved her environment; never a pop can did she pass that did not lose its tab for the wheelchairs that they buy. Lesilee lived by the motto - love, life, laughter and magic. Her life was creative and colourful. Lesilee's struggle has ended, she met her challenges of this life and she will live on in all of us that knew her. She is survived by her son Chase, her mother Cleone and her partner James ROWDEN, her brothers, sisters and their partners Bryan (Skip) DUNCAN (Toronto,) Cameron and Joyce DUNCAN (Toronto), Keith and Dale DUNCAN (North Bay), Alana DUNCAN- CAMERON (Ottawa), Kerrie DUNCAN and Rosie WALSH (New Zealand). Her faithful companion Feebee, a Lab, Border-Collie mix, misses her too. Lesilee's nieces, nephews and great niece were truly loved by her, Kristen, Shelley, Karman, Eve, Anna, Arleigh, Sean, Jesse, Robert and Beki, Matthew, Brendan and dear little Mira. She will be sadly missed and graciously remembered by the residents of 64 Nassau, colleagues from the St. Amant Centre and all the wonderful people who recently joined her on her path. She was willing to help anyone who needed anything. Lesilee will be remembered at a Wiccan ceremony to be held at Neil Bardal Inc., 984 Portage Avenue (entrance on Aubrey Street) at 1: 00 p.m. on Saturday, October 22, 2005. Lesilee would want you to put a food item in the food bank bin at your grocery store. The family would ask that donations in Lesilee's name be made to Klinic Community Health Centre, 870 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3G 0P1. Kia Kaha. Neil Bardal Inc. 204-949-2200
