Evelyn HORNE, Civil Servant and Volunteer: 1907-2005
Ottawa secretary worked for Mackenzie KING and was acquainted with a succession of prime ministers. From her vantage point at the centre of power, she saw everything and knew everyone
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Tuesday, May 17, 2005 Page S9
Ottawa -- Everyone came to see Evelyn HORNE to pick her brains on people and policy, including Jean CHRÉTIEN. She spent 30 years at the centre of political power. Starting with Mackenzie KING, Miss HORNE knew five prime ministers in a row, including Louis SSAINTURENT, John DIEFENBAKER, Lester PEARSON and Pierre TRUDEAU.
From 1941 to 1973, Miss HORNE perched just off centre stage as a perceptive spectator of some of the most tumultuous events in recent Canadian history -- from the anxious years of the Second World War to the new welfare state that came later. Surrounded by statesmen, politicians, governors-general and civil servants, Miss HORNE knew practically all of them, many on a first-name basis.
"She told me that she knew CHRÉTIEN when he was a young pup who came and sat on the corner of her desk and talked politics," said her nephew, Robert PIKE of Ottawa.
Other Ottawa mandarins who valued Miss HORNE for her administrative skills during the '40s and '50s included Prime Minister Paul MARTIN's father, Paul MARTIN Sr., Jack PICKERSGILL and C.D. HOWE.
For all that, Miss HORNE never forgot the years she spent working for Mackenzie KING. Getting that job was a "case of being in the right place at the right time and knowing the right people though I would be selling myself short if I didn't admit that I had some native intelligence and was willing to go the second mile into overtime when it was necessary," she said in 1997.
Miss HORNE first attracted Mr. King's attention when, as a provincial civil servant, she was secretary of the committee organizing the Nova Scotia segment of the 1939 visit to Canada of King George Virgin Islands and Queen Elizabeth.
"When Mr. KING asked to meet me during his tour of East Coast defences in the fall of 1940, I knew I was to be interviewed for a job. And what an interview! Presumably, someone had told him that I could write a fairly good letter; he asked me nothing about my work capabilities," said Miss HORNE.
Instead, Mr. KING quizzed her about the architectural features of the room they were sitting in at Nova Scotia's Province House, Canada's oldest seat of government. "[It was] the most perfect example of Adam architecture in North America. He asked me to explain the symbolism of the bas-relief around the fireplace and recount the history behind the life-size portraits of kings and queens that adorned the walls," she said.
Fortunately, Miss HORNE knew all the answers and found herself in Ottawa in January of 1941. "My first reaction was disappointment. I found the city dull and boring -- after Halifax. There was no immediate awareness that there was a war on. And I was very disappointed in [my new] job. I was assigned to do the 'routine correspondence.' "
It was so simple and repetitive, she was "bored to tears. When I could stand it no longer, I complained to the boss -- not Mr. KING, of course, but [to his] principal secretary. I said I wanted to go back home. The work was too easy -- there was no challenge I didn't have enough to do. As a result, I was given the responsibility for the whole of the Prime Minister's correspondence."
That task was not without its lighter moments, Miss HORNE told her niece, Frances PIKE. " One day, she reached an envelope addressed 'To the Biggest Prick in Canada.' There was nothing inside except an unused condom. 'Mr. PICKERSGILL,' she said, 'what do I do with this'? He said, 'Miss HORNE, I'll take care of it. As far as the contents are concerned, you may do with it what you will.'"
Although Miss HORNE rarely saw Mr. KING during the war, the Prime Minister's Office "was an exciting place to be, right at the heart of government, during those increasingly intense years of war. There were so many pressing concerns, and all kinds of people wrote to the Prime Minister about all kinds of problems. I had to find the answers, or find the people who could.
"I learned so much, not only about government, but also about the people of this country, who showed so much courage, stoicism, and forbearance in the face of all the tragedy and the hardships that affected us all during those terrible years."
In 1946, Miss HORNE moved from the East Block to Laurier House, Mr. KING's home, where she handled his personal correspondence and did some speechwriting. "I became acquainted with [him] as a person, and I liked him."
In 1950, Miss HORNE struck an early blow for women's rights after she went to work for the assistant private secretary to Robert WINTERS, then minister of reconstruction and supply. Despite all her experience, Mr. WINTERS "wouldn't take her on trips because he thought that was unseemly. So he hired a man, whom she had to train. He was hopeless, but making more money than her," said Mr. PIKE, the nephew.
When Miss HORNE complained to her boss that she should be earning as much as the new man, he retorted that he saw no reason for a raise -- she was making excellent money "for a woman."
"So she packed up and went home," said Mr. PIKE. " Then she called Jack PICKERSGILL, who told her to sit tight for a few days and he'd see what he could do. Very soon after, she went to work for Ellen FAIRCLOUGH at the Department of Citizenship and Immigration."
Miss HORNE finished her career with the federal government in 1973 when she retired from the National Film Board. Awarded the Coronation Medal in 1953 and the Centennial Medal in 1967, she received a Governor-General's Caring Canadian Award in 2004 for her years spent as a volunteer.
Miss HORNE first started volunteering during the First World War, when she knitted scarves for the troops. "I distinctly remember the outbreak of the war in 1914, and I recall many occasions when I went to the train station in Truro with my mother to meet the troop trains to present gifts of food and cigarettes and warm knitted items."
When the Second World War broke out in 1939, Miss HORNE's volunteering became a "way of life. I worked as a check-girl for the weekly dances at the famous North End Services Canteen, and playing the odd game of snooker with the boys who didn't feel like dancing. Many times, I would best serve by lending a sympathetic ear or looking at pictures of sweethearts or wives and children back home."
Life in Halifax during the war was grim, she recounted. "The most vulnerable spot in all of Canada, the city was actually at war and everyone pitched in to help. I can laughingly say that my war work was entertaining and being entertained by the officers of the great battleships that anchored in Halifax harbour. We had a lively social life.
"But the shadow of war was always close at hand; and more than once, men I had danced with one night were brought back two days later, burned beyond recognition when their ship was torpedoed by German U-boats just beyond the harbour headlands. Volunteer visits to Camp Hill, the [military] hospital, were a high priority for me at that time."
Evelyn Annie Ethel HORNE was born on February 23, 1907, in Truro, Nova Scotia She died of heart failure on March 21, 2005, in Ottawa. She was 98. She leaves her niece, Frances; nephews Robert, David, Peter and Donald; 16 great-nieces; and 11 great-great-nieces and nephews.

ENDICOTT, Norman Austin (1926-2005)
Born in Chongqing, China, the eldest son of missionaries James and Mary ENDICOTT, he liked to point out he was "third generation Chinese." Responsible for many hijinks at the Canadian School in Chengtu. After serving in the Royal Air Force overseas in 1944-45, he graduated a Silver Medalist from Victoria College and from Osgoode Hall Law School.
An "unrepentant premature anti-fascist," he early joined labour and peace campaigns and supported the Chinese revolutionary cause. He practiced corporate-commercial law, also lending his talents to progressive causes: June Marks' campaign against blockbusting in Ward 2; Alderman Dan Heap's fight against lead poisoning and for strikers at Texpack and Artistic Woodworking. He supported Madeleine Parent and Kent Rowley in their struggle for Canadian unions and Pauline Julienne and Pierre Godin for justice for Quebec. He was most proud of changes in immigration process as a result of the Dowhopaluk case.
In 1958 he organized a lawyers' delegation to China, meeting with Chou-En-Lai. He supported international organizations of jurists promoting the Geneva Agreement and advancement of the rule of law. He debated Red Guards at Baida in 1966. His Comportex Trading led the way in opening Canada-China trade in the 1970s, as well as trade with Cuba. He supported the Toronto Chinese Canadian Welfare Association and was a founding member of the Canadian China (Friendship) Society of Toronto in 1971. He helped establish North Carolina Press which contributed to the development of Canadian publishing.
Despite Parkinson's disease, he accompanied wife Caroline helping her teach English and business at S.I.S.U. in Chongqing in 1990. He established a representative office in Chongqing in 1993. Survived by wife Caroline WALKER, son Eric and daughter Susanne, grand_sons John and Paul FAIRLEY, stepson James PERLY and Michelle.

Neighbours mourn family man
Gregory BRINE was killed Friday when his car and boat trailer crashed on Highway 401.
By Norman DE BONO, Free Press Reporter
In the backyard of the BRINE family home stands a playhouse Gregory BRINE built three weeks ago for his son Mitchell's fourth birthday.
Just two weeks ago, in the shadow of the playhouse, he camped outside with his daughter, Alex, for her 10th birthday.
Yesterday, Friends and neighbours of the BRINE family on Ambleside Drive in the city's northwest remembered the father who devoted his time to his family.
BRINE, 41, was killed Friday afternoon when the family's station wagon that was pulling a sailboat crashed near Napanee.
"When he first moved in here we built the fences together in the backyard and I got to know him quite well," neighbour Brett FAIRWEATHER said yesterday.
"He was a great guy, a great father. I just heard about it and I was shocked. This makes me very upset."
BRINE's wife, Yvonne, has a home-based counselling business, FAIRWEATHER said, and their children are Alex, 10; Cooper, 8 and Mitchell, 4.
BRINE worked as a labourer at Cami Automotive in Ingersoll when he went to the University of Western Ontario to upgrade his education.
He was recently hired into management at the automotive assembly plant.
"He was on the line, but after finishing courses at Western, he got into management. He had everything going for him," FAIRWEATHER said.
Tessie SPITERI lives next door to the BRINE family and recalls every day after work and on weekends, Gregory BRINE could be found playing with his children in the backyard.
"When he got home, he was out there with them. It didn't matter if it was hot or cold," SPITERI said.
"They were always together. It's a shame, a shame. He was a good neighbour, a very nice guy. His yard is filled with toys for the children."
witnesses: said BRINE was driving the family's station wagon on Highway 401 east of Napanee when the trailer carrying the seven-metre sailboat began to swerve, Napanee Ontario Provincial Police said.
The car hit the gravel shoulder, rolled across the highway and struck a concrete median, with the boat landing on top of the upside-down vehicle.
A trucker who saw the crash stopped and pulled out the three children through the car's back window, police said. Yvonne, 42, freed herself from the car.
Firefighters extracted Gregory BRINE from the vehicle, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The crash at about 12: 45 p.m. closed Highway 401 for hours. Yvonne BRINE and her children were treated for minor injuries and released from hospital in Napanee.
Police have speculated the boat was too large for the car pulling it. The family had been on vacation.

Ruth (FAITH) STANLEIGH
By Allan STANLEIGH, Monday, July 25, 2005, Page A14
Mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister. Born September 6, 1920, in Toronto. Died March 31, of complications from Alzheimer's disease, aged 85.
Ruth FAITH was probably born in 1920. As she was delivered by midwife in the FAITH family's downtown Toronto home, there was no official birth registration. Ruth found herself in a crowded-yet-vibrant environment consisting of eight children, two parents and two grandparents. Living among many is a scenario she would recreate later in life.
The FAITHs lived according to many old-world traditions. On occasion, her grandfather would arrive home with live fish that would frolic in the bathtub overnight and then go on to the family dinner table.
Ruth displayed her mothering instincts early in life when her younger sister would wake her during the night because she had wet her bed. Ruth would change and wash the bed sheets before her parents awoke, protecting her sibling from embarrassment and parental wrath.
One afternoon on the way to her job as a cashier in her uncle's downtown Toronto movie theatre on Queen Street, she stopped to peer into the window of a shoe store. It was there that she met a dashing young shoe salesman, Richard STANLEIGH. After a torrid romance, the young couple eloped, a decision probably motivated by Ruth's pregnancy. Ruth was 18 years old. A few months before their first anniversary, they welcomed their firstborn, Stephen. By the fifth year of marriage, Ruth and Richard had created a family of four. Over the next 19 years, Ruth bore an astounding 13 children. When asked why she had so many, she replied, "I love children."
Help in running the household came in many forms. Richard did most of the food shopping. Ruth's expectations of the children fell along gender lines. She demanded that the girls clean up after dinner and stubbornly refused to allow the boys to participate in housework, even if they willingly volunteered. The boys did tasks such as garbage and snow removal.
The Stanleigh home was one of constant motion. The kids' Friends loved to visit, whispering in astonishment "There are so many children." Ruth was an expert in time-management and always found the time to do everything necessary to keep the household running. Her secret? "You just focus on one task at a time and then move on to the next."
We'd arrive home from school to find fresh baking waiting to be devoured. Ruth even volunteered at our public school and she never missed a piano recital. Both Ruth and Richard were forthright in supporting their children in school. Many a teacher or principal had to endure receiving from my mother, as she put it, "a piece of my mind."
Richard was in the men's wear business and kept the children well dressed with merchandise samples. The kids even modelled in catalogues and men's wear magazines. Ruth often accompanied him on business trips, gleaning sales experience that proved vital later in life.
In 1978, Richard died of heart complications. At 57 years old, Ruth had no financial resources, no formal education and three children still at home. It was not without considerable internal struggle that she parlayed her organizational and personable character skills into a travelling sales position. Each week, she visited a different Southern Ontario community, returning with delightful tales of the lives of the farmers and the small-town folk she met along the way.
The years of childbearing and family responsibility took its toll as osteoporosis and Alzheimer's commandeered her health. Ruth STANLEIGH has left a legacy of 11 surviving children, 20 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
Allan is Ruth's son, the eighth-born.
