He was longest-serving sergeant-at-arms
Canadian Press, Wednesday, August 31, 2005, Page S9
Ottawa -- The longest serving sergeant-at-arms in the history of Canada's Parliament has died.
Major-General Maurice Gaston CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER's official title was House of Commons sergeant-at-arms and secretary to the Queen.
"Gus CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was the longest serving sergeant-at-arms in the history of the Canadian Parliament," Prime Minister Paul MARTIN said yesterday in a written statement, noting that Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER had been appointed in 1978 after a long military career.
Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER may have been best known to Canadians as the bearer of the ceremonial mace signifying the power of the Speaker in the Commons during ceremonies opening Parliament.
Mr. MARTIN said he had upheld the authority of Parliament with integrity and dignity, displaying a mastery of procedure and ceremony. "Yet he saw himself as more than an enforcer of rules he was a facilitator, helping to make Parliament work, while ensuring respect for the institution."
Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER died Monday of cancer. He was 70.

Gus CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER, Sergeant-At-Arms (1935-2005)
The House of Commons' longest-serving sergeant-at-arms presented the image of a man one would not wisely cross. He ran Parliament Hill as a 'private fiefdom'
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, September 3, 2005, Page S7
Gus CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER paraded daily into the House of Commons with a military bearing befitting a retired major-general. As sergeant-at-arms, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER handled responsibilities ranging from security to the allotment of parking slots. His duties that gave him much control over the day-to-day lives of members of Parliament, a power exercised out of public sight.
More conspicuous was Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER's role in leading the parades that open and close a day's sitting. In preceding the Speaker on entering and leaving the House, the sergeant-at-arms carries the ceremonial mace, a symbol of authority.
Dressed in a black court coat and a tricorne hat, the mace gripped by his right hand as it rested on his right shoulder, a ceremonial sword carried at his left hip, with service ribbons on his breast adding a dash of colour, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER presented the image of a man one would not wisely cross. For all that, his long tenure as sergeant-at-arms coincided with a breakdown in traditional parliamentary behaviour. On two occasions, members grabbed the mace, a shocking breach of decorum considered a gross contempt of Parliament.
Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was the longest-serving sergeant-at-arms since Confederation. His 27-year tenure surpassed that of the other seven men to have held the position.
A long climb through the ranks of the armed forces prepared him well for doing battle with civilians, as Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER proved a wily adversary in bureaucratic squabbles.
Born in Drummondville, Quebec, Maurice Gaston CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was educated at Mount Allison University at Sackville, New Brunswick, and, later, at the University of Liege in Belgium. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1952 while still a teenager, and married Joan CAHILL of Summerside, Prince Edward Island, before he was 20.
Serving as a navigator with Maritime Air Command, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER became an air instructor at the Air Navigation School at Winnipeg in 1960. He was appointed resident staff officer at Laval University at Quebec City two years later.
Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER relocated to Europe in 1964, serving as protocol chief for the armed forces. He was also appointed executive assistant to the commander of the Royal Canadian Air Force air division. After graduating from the Canadian Forces staff college in 1969, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was named bilingual policy adviser to the personnel chief. He was promoted to the rank of major-general in 1975.
He became executive assistant to Liberal defence minister Donald MacDONALD in 1970, remaining in the post under Edgar BENSON, C.M. (Bud) DRURY, James RICHARDSON and Barnett (Barney) DANSON.
The retired general was appointed sergeant-at-arms on April 27, 1978, by Pierre TRUDEAU, the first of seven prime ministers for whose security on Parliament Hill he was responsible. Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER succeeded David CURRIE, a decorated war hero awarded the Victoria Cross who had been sergeant-at-arms for 18 years.
As the official Commons guard, the sergeant-at-arms places the mace on a table before the Speaker. He then sits patiently throughout proceedings adjacent to the entrance to the House. The role of sergeant-at-arms carries with it a centuries-old responsibility for security, hence the mace and sword.
Yet, one of Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER's first public statements regarded the diminished size of the Christmas tree installed in the lobby of the House. Several controversies generated headlines in his first years. A stern report from the auditor-general was highly critical of Parliament's administration, noting an annual $3.5-million deficit from restaurants and cafeterias.
Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was soon embroiled in a public squabble over spending with Speaker Jeanne SAUVÉ. Without her knowledge, he had ordered $10,000 of riot gear, including vests, helmets, handcuffs and 12-gauge shotguns. He had also neglected to inform her of the creation of a new restaurant to address overcrowding in Parliament's main dining room. Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER opened an elegant, 70-seat restaurant for senior bureaucrats in the South Block in 1980. The first-class restaurant served $2.75 gourmet meals, a bargain for top mandarins as each meal served cost $12 in subsidies.
The Speaker called the restaurant scandalous, ordered it closed (after having allowed it at first to remain open), and issued a public rebuke of the sergeant-at-arms' spending habits.
An attempt soon after to end wasteful spending left Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER with egg on his face. A special Commons-Senate committee decided laying off 30 cafeteria workers would save money. But members of Parliament and bureaucrats proved sadly incapable of tidying up after themselves, and the federal health department sent a letter of reprimand to the sergeant-at-arms insisting the unhygienic practice not continue.
Over the years, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER has also had to sweep offices for bugging devices, and ordered walls rebuilt to prevent eavesdropping among rival caucuses and research staffs.
Two incidents in 2002 raised questions about security in the wake of the previous year's attacks on New York and Washington. A protester crashed the official unveiling of former prime minister Brian Mulroney's portrait. Two weeks later, a man left a grenade at the front desk of the Langevin Block, across the street from Parliament Hill and outside of the sergeant-at-arms' jurisdiction.
At the adjournment of the House on October 30, 1991, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER shouldered the mace when rushed by an member of Parliament. Angered by a ruling by the deputy speaker, New Democrat Ian WADDELL tried to grab the mace from the sergeant-at-arms.
An apologetic Mr. WADDELL was called to stand at the bar of the House the next afternoon, where he was reprimanded for a breach of privilege and gross contempt of the House.
In 2002, member of Parliament Keith MARTIN, then with the Canadian Alliance, touched the mace in protest the loss off his private member's bill on marijuana decriminalization. He was censured by the House.
In 2002, all five parties in the House paid tribute to Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER for his 50 years of public service. (By coincidence, the honour came 11 years to the day after the WADDELL incident.) The unanimity among the speakers led Progressive Conservative leader Joe CLARK to quip: "Mr. Speaker, it is a good thing there are only five parties in the House or these tributes could cause an outbreak of order."
Earlier that month, Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER co-ordinated the royal visit to Canada as the Canadian Secretary to the Queen. He became the longest-serving sergeant-at-arms since Confederation last year, surpassing the 26-year tenure of Henry Robert SMITH (1892-1917.)
Mr. CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER took his responsibilities most seriously. In December, 1995, a Liberal member of Parliament in a Santa Claus costume and accompanied by an elf arrived on the floor of the House to spread bonhomie. Hansard reporters captured the interruption in typically understated fashion, inserting a note in the account of daily proceedings. It read: "Editor's note: Whereupon a visitor in red entered the Chamber."
The sergeant-at-arms, perhaps not fully appreciating the spirit of the season, gave the bum's rush to Santa, ushering Stan DROMISKY off the floor.
Gus CLOUTIER/CLOUTHIER was born on June 6, 1935, at Drummondville, Quebec He died of colon cancer on Tuesday at the Elizabeth Bruyere Health Centre at Ottawa. He was 70. He is survived by his partner, Mary-Lynn GALLANT. He also leaves son Michael, and daughter, Nancy, as well as their mother, Joan, from whom he was separated.

Bernie SHARE, 74: Kitsch king of Queen St.
His antique store a neighbourhood clubhouse
'He was so positive, so uplifting'
By Catherine DUNPHY, Staff Reporter
Bernie SHARE's funeral on April 17 was fit for the king he was. His partner, Susan, moved some of his favourite things -- Iranian carpets, the carved ornamental side tables, the bobble-headed hula dolls, the jelly mould in the shape of a naked female torso, the elf cookie jar and salt and pepper set, and five of the 40-plus cowboy hats he owned -- down Queen St. W. into four rooms of the Bates and Dodds funeral home.
SHARE, 74, was the man who owned a neighbourhood mecca. Officially it was an antique store called Gallery and Innovations; unofficially the cluttered storefront with its wondrous wares tumbling out onto the sidewalk on the south side of Queen near Niagara St. was a neighbourhood clubhouse for the denizens of this neighbourhood and customers from all over the city.
Everybody knew the guy with the English accent in the three-piece suit and the cowboy hat, and lots of them referred to him as the King of Queen St. He'd owned one store or another in the area for well over 25 years and it was in one of them 23 years ago that he met Susan. A single mom of three boys working as a waitress in the area, she'd often walked past the store but rarely stopped. "I thought it was a weird junk store," she said, unaware of the valuable chandeliers and art deco pieces often piled one on top of the other inside.
But one day she spotted an Iranian carpet and, uncharacteristically, knew she had to own it. SHARE readily agreed she could take it and pay him the $600 in four instalments. "I was impressed. He'd never seen me before and he trusted me," she recalled.
But that was how he worked.
"I don't think he even kept a ledger. I'd admire something; he'd say 'There's a crack in it.' He'd say something was $300. You'd say 'You sure'? He'd say $275," said Agnes HANNA, a neighbour and former teacher at the local Givens Shaw public school. He gave her many items for her kindergarten classes.
"I'd see a set of maracas, a teddy bear, a little chair, for the kids. 'Take it,' he'd say. 'Take it.'"
For her own Queen St. home, HANNA once spotted a late 1800s chaise longue in the rain out in front of the store with only three legs. SHARE got the fourth leg carved for her.
He would sit inside at the front of his store, a cup of coffee in his hand, surrounded by antiques and kitsch. The chairs would change, as they were sold, but the feeling was the same: this was a living room in which anyone was welcome to sit and chat. "Like an old village gathering," HANNA said.
Neighbourhood artists used to drop by, often for career advice. The talks often went on past closing time, turning into coffee-fuelled discussions of art and life and truth that lasted till midnight. In the summer, the salons, for that's what they were, moved outside and SHARE would sit there on the sidewalk amid his treasures, in suit and Stetson -- looking as if he were dressed for a wedding, HANNA said -- and talk to just about anyone passing by.
Often there was music. Susan remembers a time when a passing musician noticed a guitar SHARE had brought outside and asked if he could play it. Soon he was joined by a musician who lived next door, then by another local talent. Encouraged by SHARE, they played on... till 3 the next morning. Neighbours and strangers came, sat, sang, laughed and chatted. It was a night of magic that could only happen in the big city and that was always happening at the store and around SHARE.
Which is why Susan was determined to take that feeling to the funeral home. Together she and SHARE had a combined family of 11 children, but SHARE also knew street people and people from showbiz from when he used to supply props to movie and theatre sets. Many of these people came to say goodbye and stayed to celebrate their friend. Three members of the talented O'Hara family were there: actress Catherine, singer-songwriter Mary Margaret and SHARE's former neighbour, Marcus, from when he owned the Squeeze Box Club next door.
Several of the local restaurants spontaneously sent over trays of food, as his friend and neighbour Roger CLOWN wandered through the rooms plucking SHARE's favourite Eddie Cantor and Al Jolson tunes on his banjo. "It was a carnival atmosphere. Dad would have loved it," said his daughter Maxine SHARE- STROM.
People signed the guest book, scribbling all over and in the corners what he meant to them. Two of his Friends, Sheldon WAGNER, a psychiatrist, and musician Rick CAPREOL spontaneously sat down together for several sets of the blues.
And most everyone there had a story. An Iranian gentleman said SHARE was the first friend he and his wife, an Iranian princess, made in Canada. One of SHARE's business colleagues recalled delivering props to the then O'Keefe Centre for a show featuring Diane Keaton. SHARE assured him they could go to the stage door, that Keaton knew him. His colleague was skeptical and the security guard there was downright hostile, readying for a heave-ho, when suddenly a throaty female voice behind him called: "Bernie. Hi." It was Keaton.
SHARE was born in Flushing, Long Island, in 1930 to conservative Jewish parents who returned to England when he was 5. He was 25 and a talented but reluctant tailor when he married his first wife, Annette. They came to Canada in 1960 and opened up an antique store on Queen St. E. at Larchmount. They had a second store in the area that Maxine SHARE- STROM ran when she was 11.
She remembers being so excited to tell her father she had sold a six-place setting of Wedgwood china for $12. "He just smiled at me and said 'Good for you, honey,'" Later he showed her the setting in the reference book, telling her that it may have been worth "a little more" (it was worth probably $1,000 at the time) but that this was a good lesson for her to learn the value of things.
"That was my father. He was so positive, so uplifting," she said.
At the time, he was driving a cab to augment the family's income. SHARE- STROM remembers waking up some mornings to find a stranger asleep on the sofa, another fare down on his luck whom her father had brought home for a few days.
He moved the two stores to the Queen and Sherbourne Sts. area, and added a third across the street. All were called My Place. Later he crossed Yonge St. to set up another shop, this one on Queen St. W. closer to Bathurst St. SHARE- STROM had just graduated from high school, but she also opened a store there, across the street from her father's. "I am my father," she said. "Dad taught me to be fearless."
SHARE- STROM describes herself as the second daughter of SHARE's first "litter" of six children: five girls and a boy. Later, after his marriage ended, he had two more daughters from another relationship before meeting Susan and virtually adopting her three sons.
Now one of them, Kerry SARTZETAKIS, will be running the business with Susan.
She won't close. She can't. SHARE's presence is everywhere in this store, with its bric-a-brac, books, hat boxes, African carvings, brass beds, Czech glass and Raggedy Ann dolls. One of his cowboy hats is hanging on a peg. His chair is still at the front of the store. And his portrait sits atop one of the stacked dressers, overtop the shelf holding his favourite collectibles: the elf salt and pepper shakers, the hula dancers. In it Bernie SHARE is smiling -- and wearing his black cowboy hat.
