Ted ARCAND, Diplomat: 1934-2005
Outspoken Canadian ambassador to Lebanon during the 1982 invasion by Israel was a 'hero in Beirut' and the last Western diplomat to leave
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, May 27, 2005, Page S7
Surveying the charred rubble of his West Beirut residence one July day in that wretched summer of 1982, Ted ARCAND pronounced, "This is the work of a child of Israel." It was a bit more than seven weeks into Israel's wrenching invasion of Lebanon and siege of Beirut and the Canadian ambassador's fifth-floor apartment in the seaside Muslim sector of the Lebanese capital had sustained heavy fire and blast damage when an Israeli jet attacked a building across the street.
It was "unbelievable that people are treated like this," Mr. ARCAND lamented, noting that 80 people had been killed in the raid. "So much for pinpoint bombing."
Israel's behaviour had disappointed him: "I always had an enormous admiration for the Israelis, their musicians, their men of science, which I try to think of despite my travels in south Lebanon," he told the Associated Press. "I have seen all the human misery... and I wonder where the Israel I knew has gone." To his detractors, Mr. ARCAND failed to understand Israel's plight, or didn't care and in a most undiplomatic fashion. Some charged that his remarks betrayed a glaring lack of impartiality and maybe even sympathy toward the Palestine Liberation Organization.
Others lauded him for sheltering over 100 Palestinian women and children in the Canadian embassy, and for his principled and singular courage, evidenced by the fact that he was the last high-level Western diplomat to leave West Beirut.
Why did he stay when he could have easily bugged out, probably with Ottawa's blessing? Partly because the Department of External Affairs, as it was then called, did not order him and his skeleton staff out of Beirut until August 2, 1982 -- nearly two months after the Israeli incursion began, and then only to the town of Jounieh, about 20 kilometres north of the capital -- but also because he had "a deep sense of duty," said his son, Jean-Louis, who was then just 17 and went through the ordeal with his parents.
"He was scandalized and shocked by what was going on. [But] people from his generation were profoundly idealistic Canadians, part of the Trudeau generation. He was a typical example of a francophone who did well by dint of the Trudeau years. These people really believed in their jobs and in representing their country."
His boss, then external affairs minister Mark MacGUIGAN, backed him up. "He was doing a great service for his country... for the cause of world peace," Mr. MacGUIGAN told the House of Commons in August of 1982, stressing that Mr. ARCAND was ordered out for his own safety. Indeed, just a few weeks earlier, the House unanimously adopted a resolution -- a very rare occurrence -- praising Mr. ARCAND for his "tireless dedication and unflinching devotion to duty."
Mr. ARCAND described Beirut as "a living hell... truly a scene from Dante's Inferno." With tears welling in his eyes, he said the destruction caused by Israel's land, sea and air bombardment, "would make Berlin of 1944 look like a tea party." He also criticized the early withdrawal of peacekeeping forces from West Beirut, saying the move was a major factor leading to the massacres in September of 1982 of at least 800 Palestinians, including many women and children, in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps at the hands of the Phalange, a Christian militia.
A mainstay of U.S. network newscasts, Mr. ARCAND once stuck his telephone out the window of his residence and asked the reporter on the line, "does that sound like a ceasefire to you?"
As Mr. MacGUIGAN wrote in his memoirs, Mr. ARCAND stayed behind in Beirut to assist those who needed visas and to help keep up the spirits of the populace. As a result, he "suffered Israeli indignities not visited on any other ambassador." Because he had to cross Israeli barricades to bring supplies into West Beirut, his car was stopped and searched repeatedly, despite the fact that it had diplomatic licence plates and flew the Canadian flag.
Such searches were "in total contravention of the Vienna accords on the treatment of diplomatic personnel. The Israeli government knew that and was aware of what was going on but was either unable or unwilling to bring [then General Ariel] Sharon and the military to heel," Mr. MacGUIGAN wrote.
In the end, the department persuaded Mr. MacGUIGAN to accept an "insincere letter of regret from [then Israeli prime minister Yitzhak] Shamir."
Mr. ARCAND was urged to stand his ground, at least until the order to move came through. That same day, one of two local embassy employees who had asked to stay for personal reasons was shot to death.
Two days later, Canada delivered a formal diplomatic protest to Tel Aviv, calling on Israel to stop its bombardment. "He was a hero in Beirut. The fact that he stayed made him an enormous hit with the citizens," said Peyton LYON, a foreign-affairs analyst and long-time critic of Israel who knew Mr. ARCAND from the Middle East Discussion Group, an Ottawa salon for retired diplomats. "But he never got the recognition he and his wife deserved for staying behind."
Born in the wheat-farming region of eastern Alberta, Mr. ARCAND studied history at Laval and McMaster universities. It was at the latter where he met wife, the English-born Jennifer GARNER- ASHMORE, whose family was scandalized that she married a devout Catholic.
A career diplomat who joined the foreign service in 1957, Mr. ARCAND had postings to Czechoslovakia, Cameroon, Tanzania, the Vatican and Denmark under his belt before being assigned as ambassador to Lebanon (with concurrent accreditation to Jordan and Syria) in 1979, in the thick of the country's civil war. Despite regular firefights between Muslim and Christian factions, car bombings and sniper attacks, "life was fairly agreeable," recalled his son, now an economist with the French government. "A lot of people simply adapted."
Mr. ARCAND was among the first Western diplomats to discern a groundswell of Islamic fundamentalism. Officially, Canada forbade contacts with the Palestine Liberation Organization at the time unofficially, related his son, Mr. ARCAND had extensive dealings with the organization, including with Yasser Arafat.
His son believes that mandarins in Ottawa assumed his father had gone soft on Palestinians. "That's why people tend to get transferred. You end up being more of a representative to people you are accredited to than of your own country."
Following the tumult of Lebanon, Mr. ARCAND was sent to Hungary and followed that with a four-year stint in Ottawa as chief of protocol. After that, he returned to the Holy See, this time as ambassador. He loved the job. "The Vatican for him was most efficient intelligence-gathering organization in the world," his son said. "It was pure political work."
Back in Ottawa for good in 1993, Mr. ARCAND did a series of jobs at External Affairs involving protocol and security but his heart wasn't in it. His wife died the same year, said his son: "He could not fathom serving abroad without her."
Théodore Jean ARCAND was born in Bonnyville, Alberta., on June 25, 1934, and died in Montreal on April 16, 2005, of a heart attack. He was 70. Besides his son, he leaves three sisters.

PEARSON, W.B., C.M., D.F.C., M.A., D.Sc. (Oxon.,) F.R.S.C.,
Died peacefully at home in Ariss, Ontario on Wednesday, February 23, 2005. Born on July 1, 1921, he emigrated to Canada with his parents in 1927. He was educated at Kingston Consolidated School in New Brunswick, at Christ's Hospital, United Kingdom and at Oxford University where he obtained first class honours in chemistry and completed his studies as a D. Phil. student with William Hume-Rothery, F.R.S., the legendary alloy pioneer. He served in World War 2 as a pilot on Ferry and Transport Commands of the Royal Air Force. Bill loved activity, hated ambition and committee meetings; thus he was the "creator of beautiful gardens, builder of many buildings, and a landowner who felt compelled to produce food". Bill was the author of several books and many scientific papers on low-temperature physics, physical metallography, Fermi surface, the chemistry of semi-conductors and crystallography while working at the National Research Council, Ottawa, and the University of Waterloo as Dean of Science and Professor of Physics and of Chemistry. In addition, he edited 26 volumes of Structure Reports for the International Union of Crystallography. What pleased him greatly in a lifetime of ignored opportunities due to pressures of current interests, was the award of an honorary D.Sc. from the Royal Military College of Canada in 1984 based on his previous military capability and on his very visible and active participation in the Canadian Metals Physics Conferences held at R.M.C. since their inception in 1952; 1952-1969 Research Scientist, National Research Council of Canada; 1969-1984 University of Waterloo
Dean of Science and Professor of Chemistry and Physics; Distinguished Professor Emeritus and Hon. D.Sc. He was a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, and held "Hume-Rothery Awards" from The Metallurgical Society of the A.I.M.E. and from the Institute of Metals (London). He was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada in 1996. He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Ellen Mary (PIPE;) son, Cedric, daughter Cecily (Billy LOPER) and their mother, Lois Jeannette PEARSON (Ottawa;) sisters Jean STEWARD/STEWART/STUART (Corpus Christi, Texas) and Christine GARNET (Ottawa.) Respecting Bill's wishes, there will be no formal funeral service; cremation has taken place. Friends will be invited to share Bill stories in May or June when the weather is more clement. Those who wish an 'in memoriam' may like to support: The University of Waterloo - W.B. Pearson Medal (Faculty of Science, Univ. of Waterloo, 200 University Ave W, Waterloo N2L 3G1), R.M.C. Foundation, (The Ex-Cadet Club, c/o R.M.C.C., Kingston, Ontario K7K 7B4) or Christ's Hospital (The Counting House, Christ's Hospital, Horsham, West Sussex RH13 7YR). Funeral arrangements entrusted to Wall- Custance Funeral Home and Chapel, 206 Norfolk Street, Guelph, 1-519/822-0051 or www.wallcustance.com).
