Jack COYNE, Lawyer: 1919-2005
A specialist in international trade and administrative law, he served on a panel that resolved disputes in the Canada-U.S. free-trade agreement, writes Sandra MARTIN. As an Royal Canadian Air Force pilot, he won the Distinguished Flying Cross
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, July 2, 2005, Page S9
Rhodes Scholar, decorated veteran and distinguished tax lawyer, Jack COYNE loved the law, history and his family. Although intensely private, his life merged with the public interest because of his own achievements and the controversies that flared around his brother James when he was governor of the Bank of Canada and his daughter Deborah when she was romantically involved with Pierre TRUDEAU.
He was the youngest of three children of James Bowes COYNE, a prominent Winnipeg judge, and Edna Margaret ELLIOT/ELLIOTT. Jack was nine years younger than his brother James, and four years younger than his sister Sally (now GOUIN.) "I was very fortunate," she said this week, "because I grew up with my older brother Jim, and my younger brother Jack grew up with me."
Remembering her brother as a very charming young man who was extremely good looking and intelligent, she said he was always popular because he played the piano. "And you know how it is when you're young and there's a gathering and there's a piano and somebody knows you play and you spend the rest of the time there." Years later, it became a family tradition for Mr. COYNE's five children, all of whom took piano lessons, to give their father recordings of their playing on his birthday.
Although not a natural athlete, he delighted in winter sports, especially hockey, which he learned to play on frozen ponds in Manitoba, and skiing, which he did with his own family every weekend in Ottawa. He was tall, about 6 feet, and slim with a short trunk and long legs and arms -- a bit like a daddy-long-legs. "He had a long stride which he used to full effect, partly because he had been taught to march during the war," says his son John.
An able student, he finished high school at 16, earned an honours degree in history and economics from the University of Manitoba four years later and won a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford in 1940 as his older brother Jim had done before him in 1932. "It was a little diminishing," said Mrs. GOUIN. "I graduated from university without any great distinction, but I was very proud of my brothers."
Mr. COYNE always played down this achievement. "There weren't a lot of people in Manitoba back then, so your odds of getting one were pretty good." Besides, in 1940, he was much more interested in donning a uniform than an academic gown. He postponed the Rhodes Scholarship and found a job with the Bureau of Statistics (now Statistics Canada) while he figured out how he could get overseas and fight in the war.
In late 1941 (again like his older siblings), he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force. Both COYNE men became pilots, each graduating at the top of his class, while their sister trained recruits and later worked in an administrative capacity at headquarters. When Jack qualified as a pilot, his sister's boss decided it would be "terrific publicity" if she, wearing her air force uniform, pinned the wings on her little brother.
After Mr. COYNE went overseas in 1942, he was stationed in northern Scotland and flew reconnaissance and bombing missions against German shipping off the coast of Norway. On one of these strikes, his squadron leader's plane was destroyed and his own plane, a Bristol Beaufighter, was hit and turned upside down. "He was able to right the plane and led his fellows back safely to home port," said his older brother Jim. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for "skill, courage and resolution."
After the war, he took up his Rhodes Scholarship at Queen's College, where he showed off his skating skills as captain of the university hockey team in the Spengler Cup tournament. He graduated with a first-class bachelor's degree in law in 1947 and was called to the bar at Lincoln's Inn in London. The next year, he qualified to practise in Manitoba and Ontario; he settled in Ottawa, where he became a partner in the firm Herridge, Tolmie, Gray, Coyne & Blair. It later merged with Osler, Hoskin and Harcourt.
Unlike his older brother, who quickly abandoned law for the intricacies of monetary policy at the Bank of Canada (where he served as governor for a tumultuous period when John DIEFENBAKER was prime minister,) Mr. COYNE stuck with the law, but honed his practice to suit his interests in history, business and Canada's place in the world.
He specialized in international trade and administrative law and "very quickly carved out a real niche for himself in the 1960s as the acknowledged expert in Canada on anti-dumping," said his son John, general counsel for Unilever Canada. Another huge early case was his involvement in the trans-Canada pipeline debate. His specialty allowed him more scope than the straightforward practice of corporate law and got him closer to the business world than many of his colleagues.
"He was always interested in the inter-relationship between Canada and the rest of the world, which was probably an outgrowth of his experience during the war and at Oxford," said his son. Mr. COYNE represented some of the largest firms in North America and served on the Canadian roster of panelists for dispute settlement procedures under Chapter 19 of the Canada-U.S. free-trade agreement.
Lawyer Ron CHENG, who worked closely with Mr. COYNE at Oslers in the early 1980s, described his mentor as an old-school lawyer who set an example by doing rather than by telling. "He was one of the hardest-working lawyers I have ever come across. He was thorough down to the last detail, exploring every facet of an issue or problem and anticipating arguments from the other side," said Mr. CHENG. "He was a wonderful advocate who spoke compellingly and had the ability to draw an analogy from everyday life to give immediacy to a dry and arcane aspect of the law."
He had an impetuous side, too. "He had a sense of fun and he was a fast driver, a fact that was confirmed by everybody who drove with him," said Mr. CHENG. "He drove his car the way I'm sure he used to fly his Beaufighter."
If the law was Mr. COYNE's profession, his family was his passion. In 1952, he married Margery Joan DANIELS. They had five children Jennifer, Deborah, Barbara, John and Ryland. Jennifer remembers the family codes, such as MIK (more in the kitchen) or FHB (family hold back) that were invariably delivered with a wink at the dinner table. She says her father fostered independent thought and freedom of choice in his children, loved them all unconditionally, and taught them to always be there for each other, as he had been for them.
Two of his children followed him into law. Deborah, now a judge with the Immigration and Refugee Board, figured on the public stage in the 1980s because of her political affiliation with then Newfoundland premier Clyde WELLS in the move to abort the Meech Lake accord and her romantic liaison with Pierre TRUDEAU, which culminated in the birth of their daughter Sarah in 1991.
In his early 70s, Mr. COYNE began showing early signs of Alzheimer's disease, an affliction that gradually erased his prodigious memory and his independence. "It is a terrible disease," said his sister. "Not only does it rob the individual of all of his intelligence, but how devastating it must be to see your father disintegrating before your eyes."
Mr. COYNE's son John divides the progression of his father's Alzheimer's into three stages, beginning in the early 1990s when his mother became alarmed at his father's forgetfulness. Within a couple of years, Mr. COYNE himself knew something was amiss, "but it was one of those things he didn't want to talk about," his son says, explaining that silence is one of the concomitant tragedies of this "terrible affliction." The third stage came when the children realized their father was seriously impaired. He continued to go to his law office every day until the time came when he could no longer remember how to get home. That was when his family made the decision to put him into an institution, in 2000.
"That's a day I won't forget," said John COYNE, "because I was the one who had to take him to the home [Perley Rideau Veterans' Health Centre] and sit chatting with him as all of the kids left the room one by one, and him not really knowing at that point that this was where he was going to be spending the rest of his days."
John (Jack) McCreary COYNE was born in Winnipeg on June 20, 1919. He died of Alzheimer's disease in Ottawa on June 28, 2005. He was 86. His wife, Joan, predeceased him, on July 3, 2002.
He is survived by his five children, their partners, nine grandchildren and his siblings James COYNE and Sally GOUIN.
His life will be celebrated at St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church in Ottawa on Tuesday.

CAMPBELL, Vincent A. " Sandy"
By Dolores CAMPBELL, Thursday, November 24, 2005, Page A26
Newsman, broadcaster, publisher, repairman. Born June 19, 1933, in Sydney, Nova Scotia Died June 17 in Ottawa after a lengthy battle with cancer, aged 71.
Sandy CAMPBELL was always just a bit larger than life, figuratively and literally. Pictures of him as a youth show him towering over his fellow boy scouts and his hockey teammates. With innate intelligence, a flair for writing and tremendous self-confidence, Sandy went from summer work at the local steel plant and the city's works department to writing for the Sydney Post-Record and Canadian Press in Halifax, later serving as an editor at Mclean-Hunter and Reader's Digest in Montreal.
While living in Montreal, Sandy was involved with the Dorval and Dixie Reporter, a community newspaper. This experience, coupled with his concerns for his native Cape Breton and his belief in an alternative to the media of the time, led to the publication of the Cape Breton Highlander in 1964, a weekly newspaper involving Sandy and various family members that served Cape Breton for 13 years.
Sandy's penchant for calling a spade a spade served him well with most; not so well with others, especially those on the receiving end of his acerbic and clever writing.
During his time as publisher and editorial writer for The Highlander, Sandy also put together a proposal and appeared alone before the Canadian Radio-Television Commission, as the C.R.T.C. was known at the time, seeking to acquire the licence to manage the local radio station, CHER. He succeeded in that mission, much to the surprise of many. He had become accustomed to guest appearances on a local talk show, and now, on CHER, he hosted Pulse. His opening salvo to many callers was "So, what's on your alleged mind?"
Sandy soon developed a reputation as someone willing and able to tackle whatever controversies came his way; initiating some of the controversies, but always allowing time and space for anyone to dispute his opinions. His concern for those suffering hardships at the "hands of the mighty" brought him into regular and often contentious battles -- the slum landlord, for example, whose tenant told Sandy how concerned she was that the landlord might trip on the hole in her floor when he came for the rent. Talk about waving a red flag in front of a bull.
He was never concerned with possessions and was content with a simple life that included toodling down to Irish Cove, Nova Scotia, each summer, often in a vehicle that he had picked up cheaply and held together by virtue of his own mechanical ability. Sandy would tackle just about any repair job, whistling and humming and often breaking out into full song.
Blessed with a great sense of humour, he could tell a great story and was a voracious reader on all matter of subjects. He was loyal and courageous, and while he loved debate and discussion, he could be mercilessly aggressive or quite gentle, depending on his opponent. Even those who disagreed with Sandy, had to admire his tenacity and sense of outrage at perceived wrongs. His greatest distain was reserved for those who represented themselves as something they were not.
His love for and pride in his own children extended to numerous nieces, nephews and their assorted Friends who loved nothing better than sitting around arguing with him.
Sandy bore life's battle scars with resignation, dignity and humour. A computer aficionado, he became the "landlord" of an Internet site where family members could drop by for a electronic visit, keeping in touch from wherever they happened to be.
Was the world a better place for his having passed this way? Those who knew Sandy have no doubts whatsoever.
Dolores is Sandy's sister-in-law.

Founder of local street ministry dies
Funeral Saturday for Bill CHERRY, who started Anchor Christian Ministries in Owen Sound
By Jim ALGIE, Thursday, March 17, 2005, Page A1
A funeral service is to be held in Niagara Falls, New York Saturday for a man best known in this area for feeding free Christmas dinners to hundreds of people in Owen Sound over 20 years.
Rev. Bill CHERRY died suddenly after a heart attack and stroke last Thursday. He was 62.
He and his wife, Reverend Edith CHERRY, moved to Niagara Falls from Owen Sound five years ago.
“It was extremely sudden, that's what made it so hard,” Edith CHERRY said in an interview from her Niagara Falls home Wednesday.
“He had a massive heart attack Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock and just as they were putting in the angioplasty he had a stroke.&rdquo
In recent years the clergy couple had become involved with Rainbow House, a community ministry in Niagara Falls, where they originally met. The married in 1999 and moved to Niagara Falls in early 2000, where Mr. CHERRY had taken up graduate studies in theology and counselling.
Mr. CHERRY was a former U.S. military medic and hospital orderly. He had begun working as a chaplain for veterans and members of the American Legion, Edith CHERRY said.
Mr. CHERRY was also the founder of Owen Sound's Anchor Christian Ministries, a street charity that provided free turkey dinners to all comers on Christmas Day.
“He was always giving, always loving,” Edith CHERRY said. “He would give to his own detriment; he would give anything and everything and not think about his own needs.&rdquo
Mr. CHERRY's selflessness was a consistent observation by his Owen Sound contacts. Ruth MEPSTEAD and members of her family helped prepare and serve Anchor Christian Ministries dinners.
“He didn't really think about himself, he thought about everybody else,” MEPSTEAD said.
“He would go without so somebody else could have something. He often would come to our place for a sandwich because he wouldn't have anything for himself.&rdquo
There were as many as 200 people for dinner in 2000, when the CHERRYs last returned to Owen Sound as participants. MEPSTEAD recalls dinners with as many as 375 people.
“He was a man with a big heart and sometimes too big,” said Rev. Bill HARRIS, who has carried on Anchor Christian Ministries at local nursing homes.
“It was not only street people, but people at Christmas and Thanksgiving and Easter who weren't going to have anybody to celebrate with,&rdquo HARRIS said.
The memory of his own lonely Christmases during military service in Germany provided Mr. CHERRY's original motivation. The tradition began in the early 1980s when Mr. CHERRY, his first wife, Sandra, and their two children, Andrew and Beth Ann, held Christmas at the New Horizon Coffee House, which in the 900 block of 2nd Avenue East.
Mr. CHERRY grew up in the Salvation Army in downtown Detroit. He was commissioned in the Salvation Army but later resigned and eventually became ordained by correspondence through an independent American church.
In Owen Sound, his was a ministry of the streets.
“I have found it the greatest ministry going because there is so much need,” he once told a Sun Times reporter.
“Some guys are walking the streets for three or four days and because they are the rough drunks, nobody wants them. They have a hard time keeping out of trouble.&rdquo
Asked why he bothered, Mr. CHERRY referred to the Bible.
“When you do it unto the least of these my Friends you do it unto me,” he said paraphrasing Matthew.
“We don't thump the Gospel at them, we give them the message that Jesus is the reason for the season and we offer the hope of the Gospel.&rdquo
A funeral service is to be held Saturday beginning at 11 a.m. at Zajac Funeral Home at 319 24th Street, Niagara Falls, New York. Mr. CHERRY is to be interred Monday, March 21, at Bath National Cemetery in Bath, New York.

CHERRY, Marion " Stringer"
Peacefully and with loved ones at her side, Marion "Stringer" CHERRY passed away on November 8th, 2005, one week after celebrating her 84th birthday at "We Care Retirement Home" in Streetsville, Ontario. Marion was the wife of the late George "Bun" CHERRY of Islington, Ontario. Marion was the youngest of sixteen children of the Stringer family of Canoe Lake, Algonquin Park, Ontario. She is survived by her beloved sister Mabel COOKE of Mississauga, Ontario. Marion spent the last two years at "We Care Retirement Home" in Streetsville, Ontario. The family is eternally grateful to Ms. Joyce GOPEE, R.N. and proprietor of "We Care." Ms. GOPEE's loving and sensitive care as Marion's nurse and friend is rarely paralleled in today's retirement home community. The quality of Marion's life in the last two years was truly enhanced because of Joyce GOPEE and the "We Care Retirement Home" family. Marion was strong willed, hard working and an amazingly compassionate woman. She was caring and well respected by family and Friends. She will be fondly remembered as a longtime seasonal resident of Canoe Lake, Algonquin Park. She had been referred to by some as the "Monarch of Canoe Lake" having moved there in 1925 and spending the rest of her summers there till recently. Marion will be sadly missed by many family members and Friends who are too many to mention. She will be especially missed by her great-nephew Carl YOUNG whom she fondly referred to as her best friend. As per Marion's specific wishes, a private family memoriam will take place. "C'mon Monty"
