WALLNER, Joseph Peter " Joe"
Died peacefully, on March 2, 2005 at Wellington House Nursing Home in Prescott, Ontario, after several years of declining health, in his 88th year. Born April 11, 1917 in Hanover, Ontario, and a long-time resident of Ancaster and Burlington, Joe was known throughout his life as a fine gentleman who championed through his actions his belief in God, family, his country and the credit union movement. Active in credit unions from an early age, Joe joined the staff of CUNA Mutual in 1951 and travelled extensively in Canada, the U.S. and abroad to support the growth and development of credit unions, and insurance services for credit unions. In 1954-1955 he was president of CUNA (Hamilton) Credit Union. He established many lasting Friendships through his business travels, retiring as Senior Vice President, Corporate Relations, for CUMIS in 1982. He also was active in the Burlington Chamber of Commerce, serving as its president in 1976. In World War 2, Joe served first in the Merchant Marine and then more than three years in Ferry Command, delivering planes and equipment across the Atlantic. His patriotism was still evident years later when he organized a door-to-door campaign in Burlington to encourage families to proudly fly their country's flag on Canada Day. Dozens of families took part, including virtually everyone on Joe's street. Joe was a founding member of two Catholic parishes and was a founding director of St. Louis Parish Credit Union, which became Waterloo Regional Credit Union and where he retained membership for more than 50 years. He was a member of Saint John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church in Burlington for 37 years. The family express their deepest appreciation to Father John APPELMAN and the Pastoral Care Group at Saint Mark's Parish, Prescott, who supported Joe's faith in many kind ways in recent years. Joe's other great faith was in medical practitioners, from whom he received stellar care, particularly in his declining years. The family would especially like to thank the caring and compassionate staff at Wellington House, where he spent his last four years, as well as Dr. Maung Tun ZAW of Burlington and Dr. Gun BHATT of Prescott. Joe was the dear father of John WALLNER (Sheila) of Gatineau, Quebec, and Eloise COLEMAN (Tom) of Toronto and Brockville. He was predeceased by two loving wives: Audrey Mary BENINGER, (1981,) and Margaret WHITELEY, (1992.) He is survived by his sister Salome (Mrs. Dan DACEY) of Thunder Bay, and brother George WALLNER (Phyllis) of Guelph, and was predeceased by three siblings; Sister Mary SALOME, S.S.N.D.; Gertrude (Mrs. James DAVIDSON) of Kenora; and Flight-Sergeant John WALLNER of Hanover, who was shot down in action August 18, 1943, 15 months after serving as Joe and Audrey's best man. He was 23. Loving sisters and brothers-in-law include Rosemary TRAPLIN (Jack) of Kitchener, Elaine COUCH (Hank) of Calgary, Doris (Mrs. Tom) BENINGER of Orleans, Loretto (Mrs. Gerald) BENINGER of Belleville, Monique (Mrs. Len) BENINGER of Sorel, Quebec, Helen YEO (Kenneth) of St. Catharines, Irmgard (Mrs. Ralph) ROEDIGER of Hamilton and, deceased, Marguerite (Mrs. Lawrence) COLIGAN of Morrisburg, and Bernice MURPHY of Toronto. Joe was also very close to dozens of nieces and nephews.

Grisly murder
Barrie woman stabbed more than 30 times in Ottawa home
By Tobi COHEN, Special to the Examiner, Saturday, December 10, Ottawa Stabbed more than 30 times in the face, neck, chest and back, Barrie native Kleigh CUNDALL had little chance for survival but that didnt stop neighbours, police and paramedics from trying.
One neighbour who lives across the road from the brown brick house on Queen Victoria St. where the former Eastview Secondary School student has lived for the last two years was returning home Thursday evening when he saw the tenants from the upper apartment pounding on the door to the 21-year-olds basement apartment.
I ran right over. They called for help. They were frantic, he said reluctantly, unwilling to give his name. I was there before the cops. We just couldnt get in to help her.
Police said one of the neighbours had managed to get inside the home and saw a man stabbing CUNDALL before fleeing the apartment to dial 911 around 5: 31 p.m.
When he returned, the door was locked and it wasnt until police arrived five minutes later and bashed down the cedar door with their own body weight that anyone could get inside.
The wooden door frame was still lying on the ground covered in snow yesterday. The jagged broken upper window of the door was left untouched for the forensic team to examine despite the landlords request to board it up. A blue Hyundai Accent remained parked in the driveway of the taped off New Edinburgh bungalow.
Ottawa police Sgt. Ron BOS said the woman had been on the phone with her boyfriend when a knife-wielding man arrived at her home.
She'd put down the phone to answer the door when, moments later, her piecing screams prompted her boyfriend to hang up and dial A police officer and paramedics attempted cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, but CUNDALL had lost enormous amounts of blood and was pronounced dead upon arriving at the Ottawa Hospitals Civic campus.
The man was arrested at gunpoint without incident and led to the front of the house.
They had him up against a car, said another neighbour, noting she couldnt make out his features.
The upstairs tenants were seen leaving their home late Thursday with packed bags.
Taken to the Elgin St. cell block, police said the man was later rushed to the Ottawa Hospitals General campus shortly after 1 a.m. after overdosing on pills. Its believed he took the pills prior to the incident.
Initially in the Intensive Care Unit in critical condition, the suspect is now expected to live and be released within three to five days.
Charges will likely be laid against 21-year-old Anthony ROACH, also of Barrie, once hes released from hospital.

Simcoe County student murdered at her Ottawa apartment
Funeral Services for a murdered Oro Station woman are set for Thursday afternoon.
K'Leigh Krissanne CUNDALL, 21, was on the phone with her boyfriend last Thursday, when she stopped the conversation to answer a knock at the door of her Ottawa basement apartment.
Waiting at the door was a man with a knife, who stabbed her 20 times. A man was arrested at the scene, but was hospitalized soon after and has not formally been charged. He was expected to be discharged either Tuesday or Wednesday.
Reports have surfaced that the assailant was a young man CUNDALL had known since public school, but police in the nation's capital have not yet confirmed that.
Cundall was a biochemistry student at the University of Ottawa.
Funeral services are scheduled for 3 p.m. at the Steckley-Gooderham Funeral Home at Minet's Point Road and Yonge Street in Barrie.

Oro woman stabbed to death
University student attacked in Ottawa apartment
By Andrew SEYMOUR, Saturday, December 10, 2005
Ottawa A 21-year-old Oro Station woman studying at the University of Ottawa was stabbed to death after answering the door to her basement apartment around 5: 30 p.m. Thursday.
Kleigh CUNDALL, who was on the phone with her boyfriend at the time, put the phone down to go to the door and was attacked by a knife-wielding assailant.
Hearing her screams over the phone, CUNDALL's panicked boyfriend immediately hung up and called 911, said Ottawa police Sgt. Ron BOS.
CUNDALL's upstairs neighbour, hearing the screams, came down to see what was happening, only to discover the man still stabbing her. The neighbour retreated from the scene and dialled 911.
Police officers who raced to the house on Queen Victoria Street kicked down the front door, guns drawn. Inside the apartment, they found CUNDALL who had been stabbed 20 times in the neck, chest and back and her alleged attacker.
Police said they believed the two knew each other.
CUNDALL, who had no vital signs when paramedics arrived, was later pronounced dead at the Civic campus of the Ottawa Hospital.
Police arrested Anthony ROACH, 21, of Barrie at the scene. He was moved to the same hospital, where he remained yesterday under police guard.
Police said ROACH apparently overdosed on Aspirin, and possibly other drugs, after CUNDALL was stabbed and before officers arrived on the scene.
Major crime detectives have yet to lay any charges against ROACH, instead waiting until he is released from hospital. He is expected to recover from the overdose.
CUNDALL was a fourth-year biochemistry student who planned to attend medical school and become a general practitioner, her friend Lyndsay BUEHLER said Thursday night.
She had an amazing future ahead of her, she said.
BUEHLER, a member of the university-based Ottawa Christian Fellowship, said CUNDALL had been a member of the group for at least three years.
BUEHLER said CUNDALL loved curling, which she would teach to others in the school group of about 30 members.
I knew her as a very friendly person who was quiet, but willing to talk to whoever was there, she said, stunned by the news.
Neighbours also said they were shocked. A couple who lives across the street said they would often see CUNDALL coming and going to school.
They said she rented the apartment for the past two years.
We knew she was living alone, and we said to her one time, If you ever need anything, give us a call, said Rick FINDLAY.
She looked like a real sweetheart, added Ida FINDLAY. She was always quiet
Another neighbour, Miriam FARBIASZ, arrived home around 8: 30 p.m. and heard the news.
Im just horrified. Shes only been here for a few years now, and she certainly has been the nicest of neighbours. She was very quiet, and seemed like a sensible young lady.
CUNDALLs boyfriend, Joshua FLETCHER, was exiting Highway 417 in Ottawa and talking to her as he made his way through traffic en route to her apartment when all hell broke loose at the other end of the line.
He told his father CUNDALL heard someone at her door and asked her boyfriend to hang on just a minute while she went to see who it was.
The next thing he heard was his girlfriends shrieks as her attacker flailed at her with a knife.
And then he lost the connection.
Now frantic, the man repeatedly hit redial on his cellphone, hoping CUNDALL would pick up and tell him what was happening.
He called 911 and drove to the apartment, where he found several police cars.
The only thing that matters to me right now is that we help Joshua in the grieving process, said his father, Bob FLETCHER, yesterday.
Kleigh's parents are grieving, everyone is grieving, he said. Life will never be the same for anyone associated with this.

Ottawa -- A young man is grieving the death of his 21-year-old girlfriend who was stabbed to death as he raced to her Ottawa home.
Police believe an ex-boyfriend killed K'Leigh CUNDALL at her apartment Thursday night as Joshua FLETCHER was driving to her house.
FLETCHER was talking to CUNDALL on his cellphone and turning off the highway when he heard a commotion on the other end of the line.
FLETCHER later told his father that CUNDALL heard someone at her door and asked him to "hang on just a minute" while she went to see who it was.
The next thing he heard were screams as her attacker flailed at her with a knife. And then he lost the connection.
The University of Ottawa student was stabbed 20 times in the neck, chest and back.

"K'Leigh's parents are grieving, everyone is grieving. Life will never be the same for anyone associated with this.

If tears could build a stairway, and memories could build a lane,
We would walk all the way to Heaven, to bring you home again.
We think of you in silence, we often speak your name,
But all we have are memories, and your picture in a frame.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
Remembering and loving you always forever and ever- You are always with us.

Man held in wife's death
The trucker is charged with murder in the death of Lois MORDUE of Woodstock.
By Jon WILLING, Special to The Free Press
Woodstock -- A Woodstock trucker is charged with second-degree murder after his estranged wife's body was found in her home Monday.
The homicide probe is the city's first in nearly two years.
The body of Lois MORDUE, 59, a Woodstock hospital worker, was found by an officer on the main floor of her one-storey home at 17 Wendy Calder Pl. about 9: 30 p.m., police said.
Police have not said in what condition the body was found.
The news took neighbours aback on the small street, where MORDUE has lived since late last year.
"It's the perfect street," one woman said.
Police went to the home after they were called about a distraught man spotted near railway tracks in the area.
Erland Wallace MORDUE, 57, the woman's husband, was charged yesterday and briefly appeared in court before being remanded in police custody.
He's to appear in court again, through a video linkup from detention, on Friday.
Investigators are still trying to determine how MORDUE died, said Oxford Community police Chief Ron Fraser.
MORDUE was an employee at Woodstock General Hospital.
She had worked in the hospital's health records department for five years, said hospital vice-president Bruce CUNNINGHAM.
"Naturally, it was a shock for the staff to hear the news of a colleague," he said.
Two police cruisers were parked in front of the woman's home yesterday.
"She was a great person," said one neighbourhood resident, noting the woman has an adult son and a daughter who lives on a nearby street.
An officer confirmed police had a previous "dealing" involving the woman's address, but wouldn't elaborate.
MORDUE had lived by herself in the home, neighbours said.
"She was just a sweetheart," one neighbour said.
On the other side of the city, on Walter Street, neighbours of Erland MORDUE couldn't believe he's accused of murder.
"I'm just totally shocked," said Kathy MRYCHKO, adding MORDUE drives a truck for a local carrier and often worked.
"When he was here, you couldn't have a better neighbour," she said.

Sad are the hearts that loved you, Silent the tears that fall, Living our lives without you Is the Hardest part of all. You did so many things for us, You're heart was kind and true, And when we needed someone We could always count on you. The special years will not return, When we were all together, But with the love within our hearts You will walk with us forever, Until we meet again, Mom, We will hold you in our hearts.

Bob McADOREY, Broadcaster: 1935-2005
Deejay who helped determine what Toronto's youth listened to in the sixties went on to enjoy a 27-year run as a popular and irreverent figure on Global television
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, February 9, 2005 - Page S9
Toronto -- If you knew Peggy Sue, you knew Bob McADOREY. That's because, with his pile of curly hair and horn-rimmed glasses, the Toronto disc jockey was a ringer for Buddy Holly, the songwriter and singer from Texas whose song was a hit in 1959. The two men were born 10 months apart -- McADOREY in 1935, Holly in 1936 and actually met in the mid-1950s when Mr. McADOREY was a disc jockey in Guelph, Ontario, and the singer was on a tour of Canada.
"His job was to introduce Buddy Holly at a concert at Kitchener. When he went on stage, the crowd went wild, and Bob though 'Gee, I didn't know I was this popular,' " remembered his sister Pat RUSSELL. "Of course, they thought he was Buddy Holly."
For decades, Mr. McADOREY was the entertainment commentator on Global Television; he retired less than five years ago. But in an earlier era, he was a household name in Southern Ontario. In 1960, just a few months after Buddy Holly died in a plane crash in 1959, his look-alike joined Toronto's CHUM. Almost overnight, Bob McADOREY became the top disc jockey at CHUM, the No. 1 rock station in the country. He was astonished when the station paid him what he was asking for -- $7,200 a year (about $50,000 in today's money, according to the Bank of Canada's inflation calculator).
"Bob McADOREY, whose face is as well known in Toronto as Mayor Givens, has the most power to dictate what pop music Ontario teens listen to," wrote the Toronto Telegram in 1966.
Not only was he the on-air man in the key 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. slot, he was also the music director. He chose the records the other six disc jockeys played. He and the other disc jockeys decided on CHUM's Top 10, which sent kids to record stores to buy records with a big hole in the middle and a song on each side. They spun at 45 revolutions a minute and were called 45s.
"He alone commands what goes on the hit parade in Canada," wrote The Globe's Blake KIRBY in 1968. "Middle-aged squares who run record stores use the CHUM chart, the weekly list of what McADOREY is playing and plugging as a buying guide."
Along the way, he shared the footlights with such big-name visitors as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
The CHUM hit parade made records such as The Unicorn by the Irish Rovers. Mr. McADOREY, a sentimental Irish-Canadian, pushed the record, which sold 140,000 copies in Canada and a million in the United States. But he didn't like everything on the CHUM chart. It was a business, after all.
"We're playing records here which I just can't bear to listen to, but I wouldn't let that influence what goes on the air," Mr. McADOREY once told The Globe and Mail. His sister said that when he went home after work, he was so sick of rock 'n' roll that he put earphones on and listened to classical music.
Like many successful big-city disc jockeys, Mr. McADOREY also ran dances on the weekends -- events with such names as Bob McAdorey's Canadian Bandstand or Canadian Hopville. He and a couple of other disc jockeys owned a company called Teen Scene Ltd., which put on dances in towns all over Southern Ontario.
After a long spell on CHUM, Bob McADOREY either was too old -- he was well into his 30s -- or too tired, and so he suddenly found himself fired. Unlike the regular corporate world, where people resign, in radio they are just plain sacked. Disc jockeys almost wear it as a badge of honour.
"There are no hard feelings," he told an entertainment writer in 1972 after he had been sacked from CFTR following a stint at CFGM. "I was told that it was either the station's new music-and-contests format or me." Within days, he had rejoined radio station CFGM.
A few years later, he morphed into television. No one told him that radio types, from the hot side of the Marshall McLuhan equation, are not supposed to be able to make the switch to the cool world of television. He perched on his stool in 1973 and performed for about 27 years.
Bob McADOREY was born within earshot of the Niagara Falls. His father worked as a machinist on the railway and the whole family lived near both the tracks and the roundhouse at Niagara Falls, Ontario For the rest of his life, Mr. McADOREY maintained a love affair with trains and rode them at every opportunity.
He went to high school at Stamford Collegiate. An Irish Catholic, he was one of two non-Protestants in the class. The other was Barbara FRUM, later the host of The Journal and As It Happens on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. The two would spend the religious class in another room, enjoying their time off.
In Grade 12, Mr. McADOREY started work at the local radio station, doing a program in the early morning before class. "One day, the station manager told me to go on air and do the play-by-play of a local baseball game," he told the Toronto Star in 2000. "I didn't know the players' names and I didn't know much about baseball, so I sat in the bleachers and interviewed the spectators and it seemed to work."
After that, he was hooked. For a time, he worked all over -- including radio station CJDC in remote Dawson's Creek, British Columbia Even then, he was fairly outrageous. " CJDC had access to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation feeds," he said in 2000. "But nobody monitored us, so we sold everything -- the one o'clock time signal to a jewellery store, the Queen's Christmas Message brought to you by Sammy's Bar and Grill."
But it was soon after he had moved to Guelph, Ontario, that things really began to happen and he hit the big time at the age of 24 by working for CHUM.
Though he may have been at the top of the pop game in the Toronto of the sixties, he also became a national figure at Global as it expanded from a base in Southern Ontario to become the country's third network. He never applied for a job in television, it was just chance.
Bill CUNNINGHAM, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation foreign correspondent brought in to run Global News, hired him after he saw him speak during a tour of the new television station. At the time, Mr. McADOREY was working for Alan SLAIGHT, a prescient broadcaster who had run CHUM, bought CFGM and was one of the early owners of Global. Mr. CUNNINGHAM's plan was to lighten up the newscast and hire a kind of humourist-commentator. Thus, Mr. McADOREY covered entertainment and did light pieces for the newscast, heading out with a cameraman to find what he could. Once, during an Air Canada strike, he drifted out to Toronto's Pearson International Airport and happened to find Terminal 2 entirely deserted. The scene made irresistible camera fodder. The pair had time to erect an impromptu bowling alley and roll a few balls before the party was broken up by patrolling policemen.
The show was an enduring success. It helped that Mr. McADOREY was good-looking, possessed a great voice and was totally unaffected and unpretentious. Behind the scenes, though, Global was in turmoil and not just financially.
The network kept trying to reinvent itself. One idea was to bring in an untried newsreader, Suzanne PERRY, who was one of Pierre TRUDEAU's press aides and whose son, Matthew PERRY, went on to fame in the sitcom Friends. Sadly, Ms. PERRY was put on air before she was ready and that experiment failed.
A short while afterward, the network tried something called News at Noon, with Bob McADOREY doing entertainment, Mike ANSCOMBE the sports, and John DAWE, business. The three of them joked, made fun of each other, and did and said things you weren't supposed to see on television. All of a sudden, they had a huge audience, unheard of at that time of day.
"We broke new ground with 300,000 viewers at noon," said business reporter John DAWE. " Then it expanded and we did the 5: 30 news as well. We worked together for 14 years."
As he matured, Mr. McADOREY lost his Buddy Holly looks. Instead, he was often mistaken for another famous person with glasses and a mass of curly hair -- Ken TAILOR/TAYLOR, the Canadian ambassador to Iran who sheltered American colleagues during the 1979-80 hostage crisis.
At Global, the news department kept trying new things and new people, though the on-air staff remained pretty much the same. One producer didn't like the jocular format. And Mr. McADOREY didn't like him. He rebelled by being provocative on air.
"It's Friday, and I didn't really feel much like working today. The boss is out of town so I took it easy this afternoon, stretching out in my office, reading and daydreaming," he began his part of the 6 p.m. newscast on April 8, 1983. It got him fired.
"Unprofessional and insulting to the viewers," read the note from his pompous producer. The viewers thought otherwise. Phone lines buzzed and letters landed on all the right desks. Two weeks later, the producer was fired and Bob McADOREY was rehired.
As host of Entertainment Desk from 1991 to 1997, he guided it through many lively segments. Among the most memorable was the appearance of comedienne Judy Tenuta. "[She] pretty well took over the show, which bothered some viewers but not me," he once said. "Her wild style made for bizarre television. Most of the interview was done with Judy sitting on my lap making semi-lewd comments."
For all that, he never did like producers. At the time of his retirement in July, 2000, Andrew RYAN of The Globe and Mail asked him what advice he would give to aspiring young entertainment journalists. "Producers are dorks, actors are jerks," Mr. McADOREY answered. "The only ones worth talking to are directors."
Having been asked to retire, he said he had no expectations of a gold watch. Rather, "how about a gold boot up the butt? Retirement was not my idea. I always thought I had a few more good years left."
Instead, he chose to retire quietly at his home in Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario His main hobby was reading and he was something of an authority on James Joyce. An Irish nationalist, he had a lifelong obsession with the great Dublin writer.
Robert Joseph McADOREY was born in Niagara Falls, Ontario, on July 24, 1935. He died on February 5 at St. Catharines, Ontario He was 70 and had suffered prolonged illness. He is survived by daughter Colleen, sister Pat and brother Terry. He was predeceased by his wife and by two of three children.

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

'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.
