FINLAY, Elizabeth Miriam (February 11, 1951-February 8, 2005)
Elizabeth (Liz) Miriam FINLAY died peacefully on Tuesday, February 8, 2005 at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, after a gallant 14 year battle with abdominal cancer. She was born in Brisbane, Australia, the fourth of six children. Liz was a unique and special person, always positive and always caring more about others than herself. She was a beautiful person in both appearance and nature. Her smile and vivaciousness lit up every room she entered and her positive attitude influenced many people. She attended school in Brisbane, Sydney and Cooma, Australia. Liz and her sister Thea were the two fastest female sprinters in Australia leading up to the 1968 Mexico City Olympic games, but due to injuries and family commitments, both were forced to withdraw from the Olympic team.

John ARNUP, Lawyer And Judge (1911-2005)
Ontario Court of Appeal judge pioneered legal aid and was known for scrupulous integrity, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, October 29, 2005, Page S9
As a litigator, judge and advocate, John ARNUP spoke quietly, wrote eloquently and acted with integrity. He argued more than 50 cases in the Supreme Court of Canada, handed down 200 written judgments in his 15 years as a judge on the Ontario Court of Appeal, and pioneered universal legal aid in Ontario.
Eight years ago when the Ontario Legal Aid Plan was in danger of collapsing in the wake of Mike Harris's Common Sense Revolution, Mr. ARNUP, then 86, addressed his colleagues in a spontaneous speech that is still remembered for its persuasive eloquence. He expressed his abiding belief that providing legal assistance is a "matter of human rights and common decency." And then he rose to the charge. The government of Ontario seemed to "regard legal aid as equivalent to another form of welfare," he said. "And if welfare is going to be cut and public housing is going to be cut and health services are going to be cut, obviously legal aid is no different and it must be cut. This attitude has got to be fought on every front... I am going to stand on [the good ship Legal Aid] until it is rehabilitated or it goes down beneath the waters, but I am not going to give up."
John Douglas ARNUP was the eldest of six children of Jesse Henry ARNUP, a Toronto Methodist minister (who served as moderator of the United Church of Canada in 1945-46) and his wife Ella Maud (LEESON.)
He went to McMurrich Public School and Oakwood Collegiate Institute where, despite his slight frame and short stature, he excelled at basketball and hockey. He also edited the school magazine and was valedictorian of his graduating class.
Mr. ARNUP went on to Victoria College in the University of Toronto. A passion for playing bridge exacted an academic toll and he had to transfer out of honours. It was probably the last time in his life that he wasn't properly prepared for an examination. He majored in English and history, played softball, directed two musical productions and worked as feature editor of Acta Victoriana, the college paper, as well as sports editor of The Varsity.
He graduated with a bachelor's degree in 1932, followed by a law degree from Osgoode Hall in 1935, where he finished first in his class. He articled at Mason, Foulds, Davidson, Carter & Kellock (now Weir and Foulds) and was invited to join the firm after his call to the Ontario bar in 1935.
About this time he met Dora ULRICHSSEN, an executive assistant to the president of Lever Brothers. They were married on August 2, 1941, and eventually had four daughters, Judith, Carol, Katherine and Jane.
Historian Katherine ARNUP, a professor at Carleton University in Ottawa, told mourners at her father's memorial service how she and her sisters learned "the rules of evidence" around the dining room table. "We would engage in spirited discussions about politics and history -- arguments Dad always won, often by leaving the table to get the Encyclopedia Britannica, to substantiate his point. You learned never to fake it -- to know your facts and to let them speak for themselves."
Mr. ARNUP's poor eyesight made him eligible to serve in the armed forces during the Second World War. Instead, he worked as a civilian lawyer for the Wartime Prices and Trade Board.
He was named a King's Counsel in 1950, and became senior partner at Arnup, Foulds, Weir Boeckh and Morris in the mid-1950s, some 20 years after he had joined the firm. He had the earning power to help his younger brother Bill through medical school and to help his parents spend winters in Florida. He also acquired a 1939 Plymouth. This vehicle, which was the first car owned by any ARNUP, conveyed Friends and family to the cottage and newlyweds on honeymoons.
Allan McNiece AUSTIN, known to his Friends as "Bunny" or "Mac," arrived at the law firm as an articling student in 1952 and worked with Mr. ARNUP as a junior, an associate and a partner. In his eulogy, Mr. AUSTIN remarked: "Working for John was a pleasure because he was brighter than anybody else in the office, he worked harder than anybody else and his partners' meetings were infrequent, efficient and short."
As a lawyer, Mr. ARNUP had a quiet sense of humour and a sharp memory. During an examination for discovery 50 years ago, Mr. AUSTIN asked why a particular lawyer asked so many questions of fact. "That is his technique," replied Mr. ARNUP. "He turns over every stone on the beach." At trial, some two years later, the same lawyer was cross-examining the same witness. It was mid-afternoon and Mr. AUSTIN was suffering from the soporific effects of a good lunch. Poking him gently in the ribs, Mr. ARNUP whispered, " AUSTIN, wake up. He's getting to our part of the beach."
George FINLAYSON, now retired from the Court of Appeal, also worked for Mr. ARNUP as a junior in the mid-1950s. "He gave me a lot of responsibility and a lot of support and made sure I got credit for everything that I did. I found him a very good mentor."
He also acted against Mr. ARNUP many times over the years. "The nice thing about him was that he was always a gentleman. You didn't have to worry about him taking advantage of your inexperience," said Mr. FINLAYSON.
"He was a very straight-forward person. He laid his cards on the table and beat you on merit."
By the late 1950s, Mr. ARNUP was a leading counsel on just about any subject in civil law, known for the thoroughness of his research and the good sense and logic of his arguments, according to John MORDEN, another retired judge of the Court of Appeal.
They overlapped on the bench for seven years (from 1978-1985). "He was businesslike and courteous at all times. He had wide legal knowledge and he was efficient in conducting the hearings and circulating his judgments," said Mr. MORDEN. "It didn't matter what area of the law, he did whatever was required to get on top of it and to produce a very lucid, readable judgment. "
Mr. ARNUP also worked diligently on behalf of his profession. He was elected a bencher (or director) of the Law Society of Upper Canada (the governing body or Convocation of lawyers in Ontario) in 1952 and served as treasurer (the equivalent of president) from 1963-66. He had to step down when he was appointed a judge in 1970, but became active again as a life bencher when he retired from the court at 75.
"John ARNUP may have been the most effective treasurer the law society every had," according to Mr. FINLAYSON. Even as a bencher, he was very effective in resolving a conflict between the University of Toronto and the law society over who should be responsible for legal education -- the academy or the profession. "He got the parties together and got them to settle their differences and the law society stopped running its own law school and moved up to York University," said Mr. FINLAYSON.
His major achievement, however, was designing, negotiating and implementing a universal system of legal aid in Ontario. In his speech to Convocation in April of 1997, Mr. ARNUP remembered how it came about.
In the fall of 1963, shortly after he had become treasurer of the law society, he approached Fred CASS, then attorney-general of Ontario, and said: "We have a voluntary plan but it is not good enough.... If you put up the money, we will put up the people and we will run the plan, but you will always have somebody -- particularly from your financial department -- sitting with us and reporting to the government of the day."
A few days later, Mr. CASS and Mr. ARNUP went to see Leslie FROST, then premier of Ontario "and in succinct terms we put the proposition to him," said Mr. ARNUP. "He thought about it for about 15 seconds and he said: 'Go ahead.' "
After he retired from the bench, Mr. ARNUP wrote Middleton: The Beloved Judge, a biography of William Edward MIDDLETON , a former justice of the Supreme Court of Ontario. It was published by McClelland and Stewart in conjunction with the law society in 1988.
Mr. ARNUP remained in robust health well into his 90s, curling, participating as a bencher, and avidly following national and global affairs. The recipient of several honorary degrees, he was made an officer of the Order of Canada in 1989.
There were sorrows as well as accolades. Mrs. ARNUP suffered a brain aneurysm in 1990 and has been in ill health ever since. His daughter Carol died of cancer in 1997. Two years ago, Mr. ARNUP developed myelodysplastic syndrome, a bone-marrow disease that disrupts the production of blood cells.
The last comment Katherine ARNUP made in her eulogy was about how her father made his children feel safe. "You could always call on him for help, advice or wise counsel," she said.
Afterward, she realized that he made "everybody" feel safe. "You knew when John ARNUP was on the bench you were going to get a fair hearing and that legal aid was in good hands," she said yesterday. "He had old-fashioned qualities of decency and integrity."
John Douglas ARNUP was born in Toronto on May 24, 1911. He died on October 5. He was 94. He is survived by his wife, Dora, three daughters, four grandchildren and three siblings.
