LAKE, Denyse (née LAJOIE) (1932-2005)
It is with great sadness that her family announces the passing of Denyse LAKE (née LAJOIE) on Sunday, May 8, 2005. Denyse was born in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec on March 27, 1932 to the Honourable Judge Leon LAJOIE and Jeanne René DE COTRET. She grew up surrounded by a loving family that included Germaine, Françoise (Jacques A. GOUIN,) Father Leon, s.j., Jacqueline, Madeleine, bébé René, Renée (Pierre ST- CYR,) Yves (Micheline NOËL.) She is survived by all of her siblings with the exception of Father Leon s.j. and bébé René. She met her loving husband and life partner, David C. LAKE at a badminton club in Trois-Rivieres in 1952. Through their love and dedication to each other they overcame a language barrier and courted long distance while David went to the University of Ottawa. They were married on May 28, 1960. This year was to be their fortyfifth wedding anniversary. Denyse was a dedicated and loving wife and the very best of mothers to her three children, David, Michael and Sophie. She raised her family in Montreal, Quebec until 1977, when the family moved to Calgary. As the family grew Denyse also welcomed and cared deeply for David's wife Carmen and Michael's wife Magni. She was a great Nana and will forever be remembered by her grandchildren, Danielle, Spencer, Siri, and Sonja. Denyse had an exceptionally graceful, generous and positive spirit. She certainly gave of herself unselfishly and was always dedicated to helping her family and Friends. Denyse loved to host gatherings and was an exceptional cook. She will be missed by her Friends, especially around Christmas when she always happily hosted a very special party. While we will miss her dearly, we know the light of Denyse's spirit will shine through all of those who were near to her. She will always be in our thoughts. We are certain she is watching over us and still caring for us.

Judge KANE a giant in two arenas
Hockey and law were his driving passions in life
Former National Hockey League arbitrator had 'common touch'
By Christian COTRONEO, Staff Reporter
Joseph Charles KANE's heart belonged on a bench -- and even behind one.
As a Superior Court judge, his decisions from the judicial bench helped mould civil society in Ontario.
As a hockey coach, he shaped the lives of countless youth -- even if he had to be uncivil about it at times.
"The national anthem is finished," he would holler from his team's bench. "It's all right to move now."
The true measure of a man, KANE often said, is in his Friends. In that case, the former hockey coach, athlete and judge who died January 11 at the age of 76 was among the wealthiest men in the world.
Everyone from Maple Leafs coach Pat QUINN to sports magnate Steve STAVRO to Justice Roy McMURTRY attended KANE's funeral at Leaside United Church last Saturday.
"I have never been to a more glorious celebration of a man's life," said hockey analyst Bill WATTERS.
"I think he had more of a profound influence on me than I realized at the time. He always had a smile. He was always so positive."
WATTERS was 19 when he first met KANE.
"I thought, 'Boy, he's the kind of guy I would most like to be like,'" said WATTERS, who at various times was a coach, friend and even neighbour.
The fit, muscular man from Stratford, who "swore but was never mean," had role model written all over him.
KANE was among four freshly minted lawyers who founded a criminal law practice in an old building near Bay St. and Bloor Ave. KANE had the unenviable task of collecting fees from the clients.
"We were no good at charging fees," says former Justice Hugh LOCKE, who was a partner at the time. "So Joe collected the money. We called him the Vacuum Cleaner."
In 1978, after 23 years as a lawyer, KANE was appointed a county court judge in the City of Toronto. By 1997, he was sitting on the Superior Court bench.
"He was a very human judge," LOCKE says. "He knew what troubles people had. He had a very close, common touch."
Ontario Chief Justice McMURTRY, a friend of KANE's for more than 50 years, said KANE excelled when it came to tenant and landlord issues -- cases that could be so complex "a lot of judges sort of avoided them."
"But Joe understood people and he knew how to bring them together."
KANE was the consummate mediator, and his passion for law and hockey intersected when he served as an arbitrator for the National Hockey League.
Between hockey and the courthouse, KANE always found time for home.
"He was very hands-on," said daughter Wendy KANE. " Always involved in his children's lives and interested in their careers."
Along the way, KANE coached his four sons and spearheaded the move to bring a hockey team to York Mills Collegiate Institute in the early 1980s.
By then, the married father of six had long shaken the nickname Vacuum Cleaner -- and had been busy dispensing nicknames of his own. KANE's Friends were called the Fly, Spider and the Brush, names they kept for decades.
At one point, KANE reserved hockey tickets for a friend at the Corel Centre in Ottawa, but that friend found no tickets waiting for him at the arena.
Desperate, he tried using his nickname.
There were four tickets waiting for someone called "Haematoma."
"That's Joe," said WATTERS. "He was a judge. He was a scholar. But if he forgot your name, he would use your nickname."

'Canada's official homosexual' George HISLOP dies at age 78
Always available to gay people in trouble
Founded country's first gay rights organization
By Christian COTRONEO, Staff Reporter
George HISLOP's phone number was always in the book.
And he paid a steep price for it.
There were the 3 a.m. phone calls, death threats, even a call from a man who had just murdered a 12-year-old boy.
But even at a time when being gay was illegal, HISLOP wanted his name in the phone book.
"I said to George, 'Why don't you get your number unlisted?'" recalled longtime friend Peter BOCHOVE. "He said, 'Well, what if someone needs to reach me?'"
And I said, 'Who?'"
"He said, 'I never met him yet. It might be somebody who needs to talk.'"
That lifeline ended yesterday at Toronto Grace Hospital, where Hislop succumbed to a long illness at age 78.
A 35-year activist for gay rights, Friends say he never came out of the closet -- because he had never spent any time there.
"George had a wonderful advantage over a lot of gay men," BOCHOVE said. "He grew up in a family environment where he was treated like the person he was. His sexuality was never an issue."
And HISLOP knew what to do with his advantage.
"He had a finely honed sense of injustice and when that was offended in any way shape or form, he had to do something about it."
That quality, however, could also be a trial in a world where homosexuality was illegal. And the threat of a beating loomed ever large.
"He was Canada's official homosexual for many years," recalled friend and lawyer Doug ELLIOT/ELLIOTT. "He really felt that, despite all the hate calls and things like that, he always felt that it was important that he be available to gay people in trouble."
After homosexual acts between consenting adults were finally removed from the Criminal Code in 1969, HISLOP wasted little time in founding the city's first gay rights group -- "which was really the first gay rights organization in the country," ELLIOT/ELLIOTT said.
He founded Gay Day in 1970, which would eventually evolve into the massive celebration known as Pride Week. He helped rally thousands to protest police raids on bathhouses in 1981. HISLOP also helped organize legal help for those convicted.
One night in 1977, Saul BETESH, one of three men convicted of murdering 12-year-old Emmanuel JACQUES, took advantage of HISLOP's open-telephone policy.
"He called George and told George he had killed this boy, and where the body was hidden," BOCHOVE recalled. "So George had to deal with all of that -- and did so. He arranged for him to get a lawyer, he called the police, got him to turn himself in."
The discovery that HISLOP had esophageal cancer came after he learned he had Parkinson's disease, diabetes and an extremely weak heart.
But even during his long illness, HISLOP led a campaign against the federal government for survivor benefits for widowed same-sex partners. His own partner of 28 years, art director Ron SHEARER, died in 1986.
True to character, HISLOP emerged victorious, receiving a cheque in the mail just six weeks ago. But he never managed to take the cruise he had planned.
Indeed, HISLOP's final days were spent in hospital surrounded by a steady stream of Friends and supporters, including one-time political rival and longtime friend New Democratic Party Leader Jack LAYTON.
HISLOP often held court in a bathhouse on Maitland Ave., regaling listeners with tales about the gay community.
But even his legendary fondness for bathhouses came in handy.
In 1988, when BOCHOVE learned the city wasn't renewing leases for bathhouses, he sued the City of Toronto.
"George HISLOP was accepted by the court as an expert witness," BOCHOVE recalled, with a chuckle. "In fact, Judge Harold referred to him in his decision as a habitué of gay bathhouses for the past four and a half decades -- which tickled George. But his very expert testimony won us the case. There's no doubt in my mind. When George sat down to talk, people would listen."
Visitation hours at the Rosar-Morrison Funeral Home (467 Sherbourne St.) are from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. tomorrow and Wednesday. There will be no funeral at HISLOP's request.

COTTON, Dorothy Lucille (née WRIGHT)
Dorothy Lucille COTTON, daughter of the late George Wallace and Lucy Copping WRIGHT, passed away peacefully on June 21st, 2005. Dorothy was born in Toronto in 1915 and spent her early years in Hamilton and many summers on Sparrow Lake. Dorothy's remarkable life was full of the things she most loved: family, Friends, animals, painting and golfing. Her love of golf spanned more than eighty years and her start at golf was impressive. Dorothy became ladies champion many times in Saint Thomas and at Chedoke in Hamilton. Her next success came with the coveted "Hole-in-One." Most recently, she discovered the joys of the links on the computer but was still occasionally found on the greens with her golfing buddies at age 89. Golfing, however, was not her only passion. She also came from a long line of people with a talent for painting and pursued this interest from an early age. Dorothy will be best remembered for her love of her family, children and animals. Throughout her life she provided safe harbour to many birds, fish, pugs and cats and provided an abundance of love and treats to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Dorothy was predeceased by her husband Ray in 1965. In addition to her daughter Lynda BAUGHMAN of London, Dorothy is also survived by her son, Allan COTTON of Kelowna, British Columbia. Dorothy was a much loved grandmother to Vicki MENCE and her husband of Kingston, Michelle BAUGHMAN, Doug (Sally) BAUGHMAN, Randy (Stephanie) BAUGHMAN, all of London, Mark (Michele) BAUGHMAN of Toronto, Lance (Maggie) COTTON of Kelowna, British Columbia and Paul (Dana) COTTON also of Kelowna. Dorothy's presence will be deeply missed by her seven greatgrandchildren. She is also survived by a daughter-in-law, two nieces, a nephew and many wonderful Friends here and in Florida. A celebration of Dorothy's life will take place at Littlewood United Church on Friday, June 24th at 1 p.m. with Reverend Krist iane Charlton officiating. Instead of visitation, a reception will follow at the church after the service. If desired, donations to the Canadian Diabetic Association or The London Humane Society would be gratefully acknowledged, but Dorothy would be happiest if you remember her while out on the golf course, admiring a sunset at the lake, or just when enjoying the good things in life. McFarlane and Roberts Funeral Home, 652-2020 in care of arrangements.

Police treating death of boy as 'suspicious'
By Jered STUFFCO With a report from Oliver MOORE, Saturday, October 29, 2005, Page A22
Screams echoed through a quiet east-end neighbourhood early yesterday after the body of a 12-year-old boy was discovered in the basement of his family home.
An autopsy failed to reveal the cause of death. Although homicide officers were leading the investigation last night, the death is being treated officially as "suspicious."
Family Friends identified the boy as Jaimie CHAVEZ, a Grade 7 pupil at St. Joseph Elementary School.
While neighbours close to the family said Jaimie was found inside a large bin with foam on his mouth, coroner Trevor GILLMORE would not speculate on what killed the boy.
When asked why the death was being treated as suspicious, Dr. GILLMORE said, "Any death of this nature, involving a young person, we will treat it as a suspicious death."
Around 1: 40 a.m. yesterday, police at 55 Division received a call about a missing boy, police spokeswoman Isabelle COTTON said.
Less than two hours later, officers found Jaimie's body in the basement of the Coady Avenue house he lived in with his mother, Karen, and three siblings: Veronica, 14, Vanessa, 16, and Abel, who neighbours said turned 18 yesterday.
"We were wakened by screams and shouts," said Mark HENRY, who lives across the street and saw the boy's family gathering outside his window. "It was terrible. They were out in the street, screaming and crying. It was like nothing else I've ever heard."
Neighbour Louise COLE said she received a frantic phone call from the boy's mother late Thursday. "She says, 'Louise, have you seen Jaimie?' "
Later that night, Ms. COLE told Abel CHAVEZ to check his family's back shed and see whether the boy was hiding inside.
The shed was locked, and when Abel CHAVEZ went to his basement to get a screwdriver so he could crack open the latch on the shed's door, he made the grisly discovery, Ms. COLE said.
That's when Abel spotted the bin.
"He gave it a kick, opened the bin, and there was his brother."
Then, Ms. COLE heard what she described as an "ungodly scream."
"He was a sweet little boy with dark hair," she said, speaking to reporters on her front porch near Queen Street East and Carlaw Avenue yesterday.
Neighbours said the family had been living on the street for about five years.
Ms. COLE said that the boy's father, who drives a souped-up white Cadillac, runs a mechanic's shop on Sinnott Road in Scarborough and does not live with the rest of the family.
Yesterday afternoon, teachers and students from Jaimie's school gathered at St. Joseph's Church to mourn his death at a one-hour ceremony.
Father Frank WAGNER led the service and said, "It was a real shock. We're trying to help the students and staff cope with this loss."
