Toddler drowns in ditch
The boy, 3, fell into the rain-filled channel after wandering onto a farm construction site.
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Reporter
Innerkip -- A three-year-old boy drowned Thursday night after he fell into a water-filled ditch on a farm near here.
Isaac FRIESSEN- GIESBRECHT was flown to the Children's Hospital of Western Ontario in London, where he died.
Oxford Community police, paramedics and Bright volunteer firefighters were called to the VAN BOEKEL pig farm on Township Road 9 in Blandford-Blenheim about 7: 17 p.m. Thursday.
They found the little boy unconscious in a ditch filled with rainwater from a downpour earlier that day.
FRIESSEN- GIESBRECHT had wandered onto a construction site on the farm, police said.
One neighbour, Samantha, who wouldn't give her last name, said she heard sirens and saw fire trucks on the rural road Thursday after a heavy rain.
"It was kind of scary because I didn't know where they were going," she said.
"I thought somebody had been hurt on the farm. I never thought it would be a little boy that drowned. That's terrible."
The family had lots of children, but kept to themselves, neighbours said.
No one answered the door at the modest house yesterday.
A tire swing, tricycle and other children's toys were scattered in the front lawn.
Construction equipment was on land behind the house.
"It's shocking, especially being a little one," said neighbour Janice BRIETENSTEIN.
"You just want to weep for the people. I can't imagine what they're going through."
The family has rented the house from Eric VAN BOEKEL for about two years, neighbours said.
VAN BOEKEL declined comment when reached yesterday.
Police are still probing the boy's death and Ontario's Labour Ministry also is investigating because the area involved a construction site.

Farm mishap kills man
Free Press Staff
A Chatham-Kent man was killed Saturday when the tractor he was driving rolled into a pond, pinning him underneath, police said yesterday.
The accident occurred shortly after 9 a.m. when Wilfred VAN WAES, 36, was driving the tractor and an attached pesticide sprayer at a Shewburg Road farm.
Chatham-Kent emergency services, including police, fire and paramedics, rushed to the scene and managed to free VAN WAES, who was taken to Chatham-Kent Health Alliance's general campus where he died a short time later.
Six firefighters, a paramedic and two Chatham-Kent police officers were exposed to a pesticide during the rescue and were treated at hospital and release.
They are expected to make a full recovery.
Additional information was not available at press time.
On Thursday, three-year-old Isaac FRIESSEN- GIESBRECHT drowned after he wandered into a construction site on a pig farm near Innerkip and fell into a ditch filled with rainwater.

Royce FRITH, 81
High commissioner fought fish wars
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, March 19, 2005 Page S9
Toronto -- Diplomat, senator and proudly partisan Liberal, Royce FRITH was Canadian high commissioner to Britain during the fabled fish wars of the mid-1990s. Appointed to the Senate in 1977 by Pierre TRUDEAU, he sat in the Upper Chamber as government deputy leader (1980-84) and then as opposition leader (1991-93) during the Brian MULRONEY era. In his political prime he was known as the man who could always deliver Ontario for the Liberals. Before that he served as on the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism.
He was born November 12, 1923 in Lachine, Quebec, and trained as a lawyer at Osgoode Hall in Toronto. He practised on Bay Street with the firm Magwood, Frith and Pocock.
Mr. FRITH died at home in Vancouver of pneumonia on March 17. He was 81. He is survived by his daughter Valerie FRITH and by his friend Hillary HAGGEN.

Royce FRITH, Lawyer, Politician, Diplomat 1923-2005
As canny as he was charming, he never seriously ran for office and instead horse-traded his way into the Senate before being sent to London as High Commissioner, writes Sandra MARTIN. An enthusiastic amateur thespian, he above all relished the drama of the 1995 turbot wars against Spanish fishermen
Saturday, March 26, 2005, Page S9
Tall, patrician, and impeccably dressed, Royce FRITH was a natural communicator who moved through life with charm and grace. A lawyer by training, a Liberal by avocation, and a performer by instinct, he had the potential to be either chief justice of the Supreme Court or prime minister. That he was neither was a mystery to many, but the most likely explanation was fourfold: He was intensely private; his many talents, which included acting and singing, tempted him to enjoy life in the broadest sense; he needed to make a living; and, although he relished influence, he wasn't hungry enough to seek real power.
Mr. FRITH suffered two great tragedies in his life -- the breakdown of his marriage followed by his estranged wife's premature death in 1976, and the death four years later of his son Greg from malignant melanoma at age 25 -- but he kept his anguish to himself and never really spoke about these losses even with his closest Friends. He maintained the same strict privacy in the last few years about his own struggle with cancer. Even many of his closest Friends did not know the extent of his illness.
He served his country as a member of the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism, as a Senator during the Trudeau and Mulroney eras, and perhaps most famously as the High Commissioner to England and Northern Ireland who saved Canada House and who rallied British fishermen to the Canadian cause during the "turbot war" with the Spanish in the mid-1990s.
Earlier this week, senators from all sides of the Upper Chamber rose to pay tribute to Mr. FRITH. Liberal Joyce FAIRBURN noted that he had "cut a swath through this place with a potent mix of intellect, talent, humour, stubbornness, skill and commitment that challenged the rest of us to think and act well beyond the boundaries of this chamber." Conservative Lowell MURRAY, who had often "crossed swords" with Mr. FRITH, especially during the 1990 G.S.T. filibuster, praised him as "a model of bilingualism," and an "enjoyable, engaging and interesting companion and a great raconteur." Long-time political strategist Dorothy DAVEY, speaking on behalf of herself and her husband, former Senator Keith DAVEY, said, "he brought intelligence and élan to every position he held and joy and warmth to every Friendship he graced and every room he entered,"
Royce Herbert FRITH was born in Lachine, Quebec, the only son of George Harry FIRTH and Annie Beatrice ROYCE. He was educated at Lachine High School and transferred to Parkdale Collegiate after the family moved to Toronto in the mid-1930s. He graduated from the University of Toronto in 1946 and Osgoode Hall in 1949 and then did a Diplôme d' études supérieures (droit) at the University of Ottawa. By then, he had married Elizabeth DAVISON, a professional singer whom he had met through The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir.
Back in Toronto, the FRITHs lived in Leaside and Mr. FRITH practised law on his own for nearly two years before joining two colleagues to form the firm of Magwood, Frith and Pocock. He made his political affiliation to the Liberal party early, serving as national treasurer of the Young Liberal Association in 1949. He got involved in local politics by sitting on Leaside town council in 1951 and 1952 and serving as reeve in 1953. He won the nomination as the provincial Liberal candidate for York East in 1955, but lost by more than 7,000 votes to Hollis BECKETT, the Conservative candidate.
He never ran for public office again. Former Senator John NICHOL thinks of Mr. FRITH as a Renaissance man. He speculates that he didn't actively pursue a career in elected politics because "his interests were so broad, in the arts and music, that I don't think he wanted to limit himself to the treadmill existence of an member of Parliament, or worse, a cabinet minister."
Instead he became a strategist and an organizer, becoming president of the Ontario Liberal Association in 1960, a position he held until 1962. By then, he was one of the key members of Cell 13, a group organized by Keith DAVEY, then national director of the Liberal Party, to build up electoral support for Lester PEARSON and his brand of reform liberalism throughout the country after the party's disastrous showings in the 1957 and 1958 federal elections. One of Cell 13's key activities, as described by Christina McCall-Newman in her book Grits, was "travelling show-and tell demonstrations of canvassing, speaking, and advertising methods" for novice candidates, collected under the rubric of the School of Practical Politics. Mr. FRITH, was a key trainer in these "campaign colleges."
Before the 1963 election that gave Mr. PEARSON his first minority government, the perfectly bilingual Mr. FRITH was a practising lawyer, the host of a television program called Telepoll on the newly formed CTV network, and an applicant before the Board of Broadcast Governors for a licence to establish a private radio station in Windsor, close to the border with the United States.
He got the licence, much to the annoyance of Windsor member of Parliament Paul MARTIN, who thought it should go to a local, and four months later relinquished it in favour of his silent partner, media czar Geoffrey STIRLING.
Mr. DAVEY was not pleased at these public rufflings of Liberal party solidarity, which provided John DIEFENBAKER with fuel for his scathing wit. In his 1986 book, The Rainmaker, he wrote: "Though never quite a dilettante, Royce was not prepared to commit totally to anything, least of all a political career." He went on to say that he regarded Mr. FRITH as "a squandered political resource" who might even have been prime minister. "Too often, however, he slid by on his remarkable personality."
Mr. PEARSON did not share that view. One of his first acts as Prime Minister was to establish the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism, with Mr. FRITH as one of ten commissioners. He served the Commission faithfully and well, saying at one point in the hearings that: "If one section of the country sees it as consisting of a majority and a minority while the other sees it as an equal partnership, this does not provide a fertile ground for the exchange of culture. Until we can find ways to change these attitudes, the present conflict will continue."
Earlier this week, Keith SPICER, who was appointed Canada's first Commissioner of Official Languages by Pierre TRUDEAU in 1970, paid tribute to Mr. FRITH who served as his legal adviser. "Royce's advice, in those days when language was still a minefield of anger, misunderstanding and prejudice, was fundamental to the success of the Official Languages Act."
As canny as he was charming, Mr. FRITH struck himself an advantageous deal when the Liberals wanted him to be Ontario campaign manager in the late 1970s. Perhaps Mr. FRITH knew how hard it would be to deliver Ontario to the Liberals in the wake of Mr. TRUDEAU's imposition of the War Measures Act and wage and price controls. He was willing to give up his lucrative law practice to serve the party but he asked for, and received, an appointment to the Senate in 1977. He then took on running the Ontario campaign in the 1979 election, the election that saw Mr. TRUDEAU trounced by Joe CLARK's Progressive Conservatives.
In the Senate, Mr. FRITH was an active and gifted debater and served as deputy leader of the government from 1980 to 1984, deputy leader of the Opposition from 1984 to 1991 and leader of the Opposition from 1991. Working in Ottawa gave him the opportunity to spend more time in nearby Perth, his mother's ancestral home in the Ottawa Valley, and to indulge his passion for amateur theatricals, including playing Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady. "Quite frankly," said Senator David SMITH, "he was better looking than Rex Harrison and he had a real polish and flair."
He resigned his Senate seat in 1994, five years before mandatory retirement at age 75, to become High Commissioner to London, his final and most triumphant period of public life. He waged two major campaigns. Under his predecessor Fredrik EATON, appointed by Brian MULRONEY, there was a serious danger that the lease on Canada House in its flagship location in Trafalgar Square in London, was going to be allowed to lapse. Mr. FRITH was appalled and did his utmost to point out that losing Canada House was going to be a blow to Canadian tradition and prestige. He also discovered that under the terms of the lease, Canada had to restore the building to its original condition before handing it back to the Crown. Instead of saving money, giving up Canada House was going to cost a great deal. That proved a winning argument in those cost-conscious days.
Former Liberal Cabinet minister Brian Tobin, now a lawyer in the private sector, had trained as a young candidate with Mr. FRITH in one of the many campaign colleges. He appreciated Mr. FRITH's brand of Liberalism. "He understood the private sector very well, but he also had a huge heart and understood that not only did you have to produce wealth in this society, you have to be fair to those who have fewer advantages."
But what really endeared Mr. FRITH to him was the role he played in the turbot wars when Mr. Tobin was federal minister of fisheries. Members of the fishing community in Cornwall started flying Canadian flags because they were upset by the over-fishing that they themselves were seeing by the Spanish and the Portuguese and they sympathized with Canada's position. Mr. FRITH went to visit them to say thank you. "He did a marvellous job," said Mr. Tobin. "He was such an articulate, persuasive personality that he could walk into a community he had never been in before in his life at a time like that and really embody Canada in the most positive sense of the word."
When asked if he had a favourite memory of Mr. FRITH, he said, "I see this big tall guy in a bow tie with chiselled features, big grin, flashing eyes looking for the next big cause, bare knuckles and all, to embrace. And that's Royce."
If Mr. FRITH was disappointed when he was recalled in 1996 to make way for former Cabinet minister Roy MacLaren to succeed him in London, he kept it to himself.
The Vancouver law firm now called Borden Ladner Gervais invited him to join them as a consultant on British and European affairs. The climate was better than in Ottawa and he had Friends there, especially former Senators John Nichol and George Van Roggen. He quickly became the centre of a social circle that revolved around the Vancouver Symphony, the board of Pearson College and the Vancouver Club. "Royce would walk in every day," said David Smith, "looking like he had just come off Jermyn Street, tailored by Savile Row. I never needed to book anything [when I went to Vancouver], all I had to do was go to the Vancouver Club and there he would be looking like a million dollars."
Mr. FRITH's daughter Valerie also moved to Vancouver where she taught for a number of years in the publishing program at Simon Fraser University. He never remarried, although he had many close women Friends, most notably Hillary Haggan in recent years.
Royce Herbert FRITH was born in Lachine, Quebec, on November 12, 1923. He died of pneumonia as a complication of malignant myeloma at home in Vancouver on March 17, 2005. He was 81. He is survived by his daughter Valerie and her family.

I Remember -- Royce FRITH
By Ken MORRISON, Wednesday, March 30, 2005, Page S9
Ken MORRISON writes about Royce FRITH, whose obituary appeared on March 26.
My contact with Royce FRITH was quite brief. He and I were both at Victoria College, University of Toronto, in 1942-43 and, like most undergraduates, we were in uniform twice a week training in the Canadian Officers Training Corps. Royce was tall, I would guess 6 feet 4, had a deep bass voice and a commanding presence. He was a natural leader.
Later in the year, I transferred to the Canadian Officers Training Corps artillery battery and lost track of Royce. Before I transferred, he was talking of joining the air force, but apparently never did. Nor did he turn up at the Canadian Officers Training Corps spring training camp at Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, that I can recall. I doubt if he was a draft dodger, so there must have been some other reason.

I Remember -- Royce FRITH
By Stephen BEVINGTON, Tuesday, April 5, 2005, Page S7
Stephen BEVINGTON of Ottawa writes about Royce FRITH, whose obituary appeared on March 26.
As a Senate page from 1991 to 1993, I can recall many occasions in which Senator FRITH displayed unsurpassed wit and eloquence, frequently trading barbs with the government of the day. Although I may not have shared his political views, I can attest that the presence of senators such as Royce FRITH ensured that the chamber was engaged and effective, acting as more than a "rubber stamp" for the House of Commons. While undeniably partisan, Mr. FRITH's abilities as a political leader and passion for Canada were unquestionable. I developed great respect for him during my time at the Senate and came to regard him as one of its finest members. Despite this, my fondest memory of him came after leaving the Senate.
Following graduation, a fellow former page and I travelled to Europe for a month of backpacking. In London, we arrived unannounced at the front door of Canada House and asked to meet the High Commissioner. The guard, annoyed by our interruption and suspicious of any compelling need to meet the boss, made a few phone calls. After a few minutes, High Commissioner FRITH invited us to his office. He remembered us immediately. As gracious as ever, he took time out of his day to enjoy a cup of coffee and chat about life, travelling, and reflect a bit on all our different experiences at the Senate. His willingness to share a bit of wisdom and some laughs left a lasting impression on me.
