POKORNY, Dusan
Professor Emeritus, Department of Economics and Political Science, University of Toronto
Dusan POKORNY, a much-loved Professor at the University of Toronto, died July 11, 2005 after a long debilitating illness. In the course of almost 30 years at both the St. George and Erindale campuses he influenced and shaped the lives of countless students and colleagues. His rigorous intellect challenged conventional wisdom, ranging from critiques of Marxian thought to Hegel, Habermas and others. Among his many publications is the two volume opus Efficiency and Justice in the Industrial World: The Failure of the Soviet Experiment and The Uneasy Success of Postwar Europe. He thrived on intellectual discourse, in the classroom and out, with colleagues, many students who went on to become colleagues, and family.
He brought his family to Canada after the Soviet-led occupation of Czechoslovakia in 1968. While in Czechoslovakia he served in the diplomatic service in India and elsewhere and was one of the key behind-the-scenes figures in the liberalization process of Prague Spring in 1968, working closely with the Soviet-deposed Alexander DUBCEK.
He had a profound belief in the potential for improvement, whether that be in putting a "human face" on socialism or in daily interactions. He was a kind, gentle, unassuming man, adoring his wife of 40 years, the prominent Slovak writer Jaroslava BLAZKOVA. She, his stepsons Andrew and Mark STANCEK, and all who met him have lost a true giant of a man.

BURROUGHS, Huguette
After an inspiring life of devotion, courage and compassion, Huguette died peacefully surrounded by her family and Friends at the Ottawa Hospital (General Campus), on Thursday, March 31, 2005. She was the daughter of Eugène BURROUGHS and Aurare BRABANT, dear sister of Charles BURROUGHS (Ginette) of Ottawa and Yvan BURROUGHS of l'Orignal, beloved aunt of Line (RICHER) and great aunt of Samuel and Vincent RICHER all of Ottawa. Huguette valued life and the talents with which she was gifted and she also accepted with serenity and resolve the great physical challenges which she had to overcome. Despite total blindness, she was for almost 25 years the journalist who put out the entire weekly edition of her community's French language weekly, Le Journal de Cornwall. This followed upon many years as a journalist with the then French language radio station, CFML. She was a passionate Franco-Ontarian who cherished her language and her heritage. She always sought to honour and enrich that heritage. In this spirit she was instrumental in establishing Cornwall's French language community radio station, CHOD-FM. She was a devoted member of the governing bodies of many organizations including the Cornwall Community Hospital, the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Legal Clinic and Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Her many achievements were recognized with a number of provincial and national awards including the Order of Ontario, the highest honour which our province can bestow, and l'Ordre des francophones d'Amérique. Her crowning achievement was to be honoured with the trust of her beloved community and elected as City Councillor, despite suffering an amputation and requiring dialysis. She carried out her role conscientiously and lovingly. Huguette had an abiding and deep faith and a Mass of Christian Burial officiated by her good friend Reverend René DUBÉ will be celebrated on Monday, April 4, 2005 in the Nativity Co-Cathedral at 2 p.m., followed by cremation. The family will welcome her Friends from 2 to 5 p.m. and from 7 to 10 p.m. Sunday, April 3 and from 11 a.m. until 1: 30 p.m. on Monday, April 4 at the Lahaie and Sullivan Cornwall Funeral Homes, Each Branch, 614 First Street East (613-933-2841).

Bob MacWILLIAM, Aviator: (1937-2005)
Pilot became aviation detective who sifted through the evidence for royal commissions that investigated two fatal air crashes
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, November 4, 2005, Page S7
Toronto -- As a young child, Bob MacWILLIAM loved to build model airplanes. He realized his boyhood dream of becoming a pilot, logging more than 20,000 hours with the Royal Canadian Air Force, Qantas and Air Canada.
Air Canada thought so much of Mr. MacWILLIAM, he was hired to be a trainer and check pilot. His expertise also made him a renowned hired hand at special hearings, commissions and tribunals. When fatal air crashes took place in Cranbook, British Columbia, and in Dryden, Ontario, Mr. MacWILLIAM was hired as a technical adviser to the royal commissions of inquiry.
Mr. MacWILLIAM joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in the mid-1950s and stayed for 10 years. He flew CF-100s, all-weather fighter planes, in Baden-Solingen, Germany, during the Cold War of the late 1950s. He married his wife, Nancy, an Royal Canadian Air Force nurse, while posted in Germany.
In 1962, he completed his flight instructor's course. "I used to envy Bob a lot because he loved his job so much," his widow said.
He retired with the notion of joining Air Canada but there were no openings, so he headed to Sydney and flew for Qantas, Australia's national airline. Less than two years later, Air Canada offered him a job. For the next 31 years, he flew as captain of the Airbus A-320, Boeing 767 and 727, and was chief instructor for the 727.
Along the way, Mr. MacWILLIAM helped design and implement the pilots' safety awareness program for Air Canada, a scheme that includes a system of anonymous incident reporting.
His expertise was also required when Transport Canada, through initiatives of Canadian prime minister Pierre Trudeau and transport minister Otto Lang, came up with the idea that air traffic controllers should be bilingual. Mr. MacWILLIAM was appointed technical representative for the Canadian Airline Pilots' Association at a commission of inquiry. His report to members was unflattering.
"French is not the international language of the air," Mr. MacWILLIAM said. "Imposing the use of two languages into air traffic control... constitutes a degradation in the safety of the Canadian air traffic control system. To impose, for political reasons only, the use of another language into that environment is irresponsible."
His remarks made their way to the 1976 annual meeting of the International Federation of Airline Pilots' Associations, where they were endorsed by 65 member countries. Because of that, Canadian Airline Pilots' Association declared Canada's air traffic control system unreliable and on June 19, 1976, the pilots went on strike. Air traffic controllers had already declared job action and for nine days nothing moved at Canada's airports.
"Bob was my technical safety expert from 1974-78 when I was president of Canadian Airline Pilots' Association," said Ken MALEY, then a senior captain with Canadian Pacific. "Trudeau was interested in bilingualizing everything in Canada. Bob and I and the pilots wouldn't accept this idea. The issue festered for about 18 months and we drew the line and decided to close Canadian air space for safety reasons. I felt it wasn't safe for the pilots to fly when we didn't know if the air traffic controllers were working or not working."
On February 11, 1978, a Pacific West Airlines Boeing 737 crashed at the airport in Cranbook, British Columbia, while trying to avoid a giant snow blower. Forty-two people died and Mr. MacWILLIAM was made the senior technical adviser at the ensuing Dubin royal commission of inquiry. In his report, Mr. Justice Charles DUBIN criticized the Ministry of Transport for its procedures regarding clearing aircraft to land at airports that do not have a control tower. He also was critical of the fact that the company operating manuals and training did not inform pilots that once the "reverse thrust" was applied after landing, the throttles could not be advanced to take-off position for a "go around." Much of the technical data had originated with Mr. MacWILLIAM.
"The people involved with that inquiry thought the world of Bob," said Fred VON VEH, then legal adviser to transport minister Don MAZANKOWSKI.
In 1989, Mr. MacWILLIAM served a similar role after an Air Ontario Fokker F-28 jet crashed in Dryden in March of that year, killing 24 people. The plane had been headed for Winnipeg but crashed shortly after takeoff. It had sat on a runway under an accumulation of snow and then tried to get airborne. The crash prompted another royal commission, one headed by Mr. Justice Virgil MOSHANSKY.
The inquiry became the definitive study on the problems of deicing aircraft. Among its recommendations, the report said planes should be deiced at the gate holding area and then the process repeated before they queue for takeoff.
"Bob was very helpful... really smart. He brought a lot of expertise to the table," Judge MOSHANSKY said from Calgary.
After he retired, Mr. MacWILLIAM formed Macavia Aviation Consultants and was president of both the Canadian International Air Show and the Canadian National Exhibition.
Bob MacWILLIAM was born October 26, 1937, in Salisbury, New Brunswick He died of respiratory failure stemming from pulmonary fibrosis on July 22, 2005, in Toronto. He is survived by his wife Nancy, sister Valerie, daughter Barbara and sons Casey and Michael.

Schools mourn 'hero' teacher
By Kate DUBINSKI, Free Press Reporter
Two rural communities struggled yesterday to cope with grief after an elementary school teacher collapsed while reading to his class and died.
Mark MUELLEJANS, 33, collapsed in his rocking chair while teaching his Grade 2 class at North Meadows public school in Strathroy Tuesday.
The Glencoe native was in his fifth year of teaching, and was known in both communities as an upbeat, committed and inspiring teacher.
"He had a great spirit. He never gave up," MUELLEJANS's mother, Colene, said yesterday.
MUELLEJANS, who had an enlarged heart, was well-known in Glencoe after surviving a fatal form of cancer during his teenage years.
"He was 17 when he was diagnosed and the doctors didn't think he would make it," said his father, Peter.
"We almost lost him then."
Through complications with lymphoma, MUELLEJANS continued to inspire others, attending his prom in a wheelchair wearing a fedora to cover his bald head.
"He was quite a legend in this community because of his fight and his survival," said Jane BOWLEY, a physical education teacher at Glencoe District high school, which MUELLEJANS attended. "He had such a great sense of humour. One of the only ways I know how to describe him is 'carpe diem.' He's a hero. He lived his life to the fullest."
MUELLEJANS was devoted to his nine-year-old son. He shared custody of the boy with his wife, from whom he was separated.
He was a Terry Fox Run representative at Ekcoe Central public school.
MUELLEJANS attended Ekcoe Central public school as a child and later taught there.
He spoke about his battle with cancer at the Canadian Cancer Society's Relay for Life in Glencoe and walked the Survivor's Walk for the last two years. Last year, he ran the entire 12 hours of the relay.
An athlete, MUELLEJANS also ran marathons, played basketball and volleyball and swam.
His death this week, doctors told his parents, was next to impossible to predict.
"They said that his heart was one-and-a-half times the size of a normal heart and it's amazing he was able to do all the things he did," Peter said.
MUELLEJANS's first teaching job, five years ago, was at Ekcoe Central.
Teachers and those he taught were in shock yesterday.
"The impact that he had on the staff and students, it's impossible to measure," said principal Sue BANDEEN. "He was the heart of the community. He was a Glencoe boy through and through."
MUELLEJANS's classrooms were "animated but disciplined," BANDEEN said. "He was a very positive teacher. You walked into his class and he was telling a joke or a story. He just lit up a room."
MUELLEJANS coached sports and volunteered at after-school activities. He became a role model for healthy life choices while on the healthy schools committee at Ekcoe Central, BANDEEN said.
This school year would have been MUELLEJANS's second at North Meadows in Strathroy.
Yesterday, the Thames Valley District school board's trauma team was at both elementary schools helping people cope. Some teachers took the day off to collect themselves.
Some schools will pause during tomorrow's Terry Fox run for a moment of silence.
Others will give special tributes to the passionate teacher later this month.
MUELLEJANS' funeral is scheduled for Saturday at 11 a.m. at Van Heck Funeral Home in Glencoe.

Single mother worked, helped out during war
By Kate DUBINSKI, Free Press Reporter
With the Second World War raging overseas and a child to feed, Zelda Jean BRAZEAU didn't have time to think about acceptable social norms.
She had a general store to run -- one the entire community depended on for food, appliances and clothing.
"She was so far ahead of her time -- she was the working mom when there was no such thing," said her son, Michael BRAZEAU.
Zelda Jean BRAZEAU, 96, of Melbourne, died September 8 at the Allendale Long-Term Care Facility in Milton.
But her work ethic and passion for life will stay with her four children, 10 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, Michael said.
Born in 1909 in Ekfrid Township, BRAZEAU and her eight siblings would walk to the Appin school in woolen stockings. She attended high school in Melbourne and married Sparling CLARKE in 1932. The general store opened the same year.
When CLARKE died in 1940, BRAZEAU, with a seven-year-old in tow, continued to run the store the people of Melbourne relied on during the hard war years.
"She helped out a lot of people during the war," Michael said. "She would fudge the ration books and then change them so they were like the government wanted them to be."
The store was a Saturday-night gathering place for the tiny community in Middlesex County southwest of London.
"She worked long hours -- at least 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.," Michael said. "Then it was closed on Sunday, but people could call if they needed.
"She definitely carried the ball in those days."
His mother married her second husband, Joe BRAZEAU, in 1944. The couple had three children.
The store was a hub of activity for the town until Zelda Jean BRAZEAU retired in 1974 -- 42 years after first starting work there.
But the responsibilities of motherhood and the family business didn't keep BRAZEAU from recreational activities such as sports and card playing.
A trophy in the Appin museum commemorates her softball team's victories.
"She played a mean game of badminton," Michael said.
BRAZEAU travelled to Detroit for Tigers games and never forgave the Toronto Maple Leafs for trading Darryl Sittler.
"Mom also had to have surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome because of all the card playing she did," Michael said.
"She said there was no enjoyment in bridge if there was no competition that's why she didn't really like playing at the retirement home."
BRAZEAU's family remembers her dry sense of humour and her love for all people -- particularly the First Nations people around Melbourne.
"She was a great lady," Michael said.
BRAZEAU lived in Chelsea Park in London before moving to Allendale. She died of congestive heart and kidney failure.
A celebration of her life was held yesterday at the Melbourne United Church.

Pauline Gascon GOYEAU
By Josée DUBOIS, Wednesday, January 26, 2005 - Page A18
Physician, wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt. Born September 19, 1932 in Cochrane, Ontario Died December 8, 2004, of cancer, in Rogersville, Tennessee., aged 72.
Pauline grew up as the middle child in a family of five in Ottawa. She was always the tallest person in her class when girls were not supposed to be tall. She had to wear her aunt's hand-me-down shoes that were too small since size 13 shoes were hard to find in those days! She laughed when she recounted these stories, for Pauline had a wicked sense of humour and loved to tell jokes.
However, what made her special is how she is remembered as a selfless doctor, caregiver and confidante. Pauline was a trailblazer. She was lucky to have been born into a family that valued education. While her older sisters became teachers, Pauline studied to be a laboratory technician. When she decided that she was as smart as all those doctors she had worked for, she made up her mind to go to medical school. She had saved up enough money and was still living at home so she knew that she could do it. And she did.
Pauline graduated from the University of Ottawa in 1961 and was chosen as the class valedictorian. At medical school she met the man who became her husband, Francis (Frank) GOYEAU, a tall handsome fellow student from Windsor. After graduating, Pauline and Frank set off for St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Youngstown, Ohio, to complete their internship. In those days the interns' quarters were exclusively male so Pauline got to live in the married students' quarters. Her mother was greatly relieved! Pauline and Frank married in Youngstown in 1962 and I was their flower girl. Shortly thereafter they moved to Columbus to begin respective specializations, Pauline in pathology and Frank in internal medicine.
Only a few months into their studies, they decided to devote their abilities to the Medical Mission Sisters' 120-bed hospital in Fort Portal, Uganda (as well as the surrounding jungle outposts) for the next two years. Pauline's own special responsibilities included pediatrics and the hospital laboratory. Her patients named her Ab'ojo (Fine Lady). The arrival of her twins (Philippe and François) was viewed by the community as a major event that linked her to the local culture and to all twin-bearing families. While in Uganda, Pauline also had a daughter (Dominique).
The family then settled in Windsor where Pauline worked primarily as an operating-room scrub doctor, while raising her family that grew to five with the births of Michelle and Melanie. In 1980, the family moved to Rogersville, Tennessee., where she opened one of the first Rural Health Homecare Clinics. The clinic's success surprised even its harshest critics and its legacy has endured as a credit to this gracious woman. Always seeking to better herself, Pauline completed a master's degree in public health while in her sixties and later concentrated on occupational health in her husband's practice until she retired. The next few years were spent travelling and enjoying her grandchildren.
We last saw Pauline at a family event in Ottawa last June. She seemed happy and in good form. However, soon after returning home, she began to feel poorly. In October, she was told that she was in the final stages of lung cancer. Her health deteriorated quickly but she faced the inevitable in the same way she had faced other challenges in her life -- bravely and serenely.
She spent Thanksgiving with her children and grandchildren. Many people came to visit: her sisters, family from Windsor and many Friends. She seemed to have a resurgence of energy on some days and even met her sister Rachel at the airport. It was during Rachel's visit that she died peacefully in her sleep.
Josée DUBOIS is Pauline's niece.
