Body found in resort blaze an employee
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Reporter
The man found dead after fire ravaged a building at a Port Franks golf resort was a longtime employee, Lambton Ontario Provincial Police said yesterday. James (Trapper) WATSON, 45, of Port Franks was a maintenance worker, tending to the course and carts at Sand Hills Golf Resort since it opened in 1996, Const. Luke GEORGE said.
"He was a dedicated employee," he said. "He was a jack of all trades."
WATSON's family declined to comment yesterday.
A manager at the golf resort said everyone was still shocked, but he didn't want to comment.
The fire broke out about 12: 30 a.m. Tuesday and caused $1 million damage.
Firefighters found WATSON's body inside a pickup truck several hours after they began battling the blaze inside a metal maintenance and storage building.
Police described the structure as H-shaped. The centre area contained a workshop.
The building housed a tractor and hundreds of golf carts.
An autopsy was still ongoing yesterday and a cause of death had not been determined.
Police and forensic investigators are still working with the Ontario Fire Marshal's office to determine where the fire started and what caused it.
"All fire scenes are crime scenes until it's proven otherwise," GEORGE said.
"We have to rule out foul play and we can't do that until we have a cause of death."

In loving memory of Charles Edwin Wesley, a devoted husband, father and grandfather. As we stood beside your bedside, Our hearts were crushed and sore, We saw you slowly sinking, And knew they could do no more, In tears we saw you leaving, And we watched you fade away, Our hearts were totally broken, When you left us on that day, Some people say as time goes by, The heartache will subside, But the feelings in our hearts today, Are the same as the day you died, No matter how our lives have changed, No matter what we do, We'll never forget those precious years, The ones we shared with you. Forever in our hearts, the George family.

Clifford GEORGE, War Hero And Native Activist (1920-2005)
Cousin of Dudley GEORGE fought for the return of native land expropriated by the army
By Kate HARRIES, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, October 17, 2005, Page S8
It was the ultimate irony.
Clifford GEORGE survived the Battle of Britain, the invasion of France and a prisoner-of-war camp in Italy.
But when the 25-year-old war hero returned to Canada with a chest full of medals and an English bride on his arm, home was the one place he couldn't go.
Stoney Point First Nation, the Ontario reserve on Lake Huron where Mr. GEORGE was born, had been seized by the army in 1942 under the War Measures Act for use as a training camp.
The federal government promised to return the 2,200-acre reserve after the war. The Stoney Pointers are still waiting.
Mr. GEORGE knew of the appropriation from letters his father had sent him while he was overseas. But the reality -- of bulldozed homes, lost harvests and a community in exile -- hadn't sunk in.
It really hit home when he and brothers Kenneth and Clarence, also Second World War veterans, obtained permission to visit their mother's grave in Camp Ipperwash in a cemetery the army had promised to fence off and treat with respect.
They found instead that the area had been worked over by people "playing soldier" -- headstones had been used for target practice and trenches dug through the gravesite.
In testimony last year to a judicial inquiry into the 1995 police shooting death of his cousin Dudley GEORGE, Mr. GEORGE recalled the desolation the brothers felt as they surveyed the evidence of desecration.
"Good, hardened soldiers, crying our hearts out," was how he described it. "It was bad for us, coming home from overseas after thinking that we helped the war out, and I always say to myself, I found all my enemies when I got home."
Mr. GEORGE did battle with his enemies throughout his life, culminating in 1993, when he played a leading role in the occupation of Camp Ipperwash by a group of mostly younger Stoney Pointers who had grown impatient with failed attempts to negotiate the return of their land.
As winter closed in that year, most of the occupiers started going home for part of the week. Dudley and Clifford GEORGE -- one 36, the other 73 years old -- remained, the only permanent residents; Dudley in a donated trailer, Clifford in a cabin built out of donated wood. The pair felt it was important for at least a couple of occupiers to maintain a full-time presence.
"They just took it upon themselves to do that.... That was a hard, cold winter," Dudley's brother Sam said recently, reflecting on Mr. GEORGE's role as a warrior in the battle for the return of the Stoney Point reserve. Mr. GEORGE continued to live in his Stoney Point cabin until 1998, when he moved to Kettle Point. The army vacated the base in 1995.
Sam GEORGE had his own battle, for a public investigation of the circumstances behind his brother's death. The demand, repeatedly denied by Conservative premier Mike HARRIS, was granted by the present provincial Liberal government. Hearings started in Forest, Ontario, in July, 2004, and are to continue into next year.
Mr. GEORGE wasn't directly involved when, on September 4, 1995, a group of Stoney Pointers moved from the army camp to occupy the adjacent Ipperwash Provincial Park, site of a burial ground. He later joked that he was peeved at not being consulted. "After all, I'm the elder there." Dudley GEORGE was shot on September 6 when the Ontario Provincial Police riot squad marched on the unarmed group in the park, in a startling departure from the force's usual contain-and-negotiate protocol.
Whether the deployment resulted from improper interference in police operations by the Harris government is a key issue at the inquiry, where Mr. GEORGE became a familiar figure. Pushing his walker before him, he attended almost every day until he was hospitalized in August. In February, there was a request that the inquiry venue be shifted briefly to Toronto. The proposal gathered steam. Mr. GEORGE expressed opposition. The idea died a quick death.
Mr. GEORGE was a reference point and sounding board for inquiry participants, said lawyer Julian FALCONER of Aboriginal Legal Services of Toronto. "Clifford GEORGE was and is our conscience in that room," he said in an interview. "It is not overstating it to say that I routinely looked to him for approval. Sometimes that approval wasn't forthcoming and he pushed us harder."
Despite increasing frailty, Mr. GEORGE had a stature that transcended his physical presence, Mr. FALCONER added. "There are very few people that you meet in a lifetime that have an aura of honour about them. Clifford GEORGE had that, because of his personal history, how he carried himself and his pointed honesty, no matter who he was talking to."
Mr. GEORGE was one of the last of those who grew up at Stoney Point. In his testimony he remembered an era when 18 families something over 100 people -- found all they needed in Aazhoodena (the Anishinabek name for the area). They farmed, they hunted, they fished from several inland lakes and gathered food and medicines. "It was a very good community," he said, "a Christian community," with its own church beside the one-room schoolhouse.
In 1941, Mr. GEORGE signed up with the armed forces. He was to serve in most of the major engagements of Canada's war in Europe, first as an anti-aircraft gunner in a unit that was rushed up and down the south coast of England, in part to disguise that country's lack of military equipment.
Joining the 2nd Division of the Canadian Army, he took part in the breaking of German defences at Caen and the culminating battle of the Falaise Gap, by which time he was a non-commissioned officer. His was with the first Allied unit to re-enter Dieppe after the debacle of 1942.
After his unit fought its way north to Holland, Mr. GEORGE went back to England on leave and quickly married his English fiancée, Agnes, whom he had met when he first arrived in England.
Immediately afterward, he was sent out to the Royal Canadian Regiment on the Sangro River in Italy. It was there that, in February, 1945, he was taken prisoner and held for almost three months -- just two days short of the 90 required to be eligible for Prisoner of War benefits after the war -- in appalling conditions by German forces close to collapse and on very short rations.
Had life unfolded as planned, Mr. GEORGE would have taken his bride to Stoney Point, where he would have been allotted four acres of land to build on. But by 1945, the Stoney Pointers were crammed into the Kettle Point reserve where the only way to get land was to buy it.
With a child on the way, Mr. GEORGE asked the Indian agent in Sarnia for money for a plot at Kettle Point.
The Indian agent was outraged at the idea of a white woman living on a reserve without hydro, phones or indoor plumbing.
"No sir, you're not going to get no land," he told Mr. GEORGE.
Instead, he'd get him a down payment for a house in Forest.
Mr. GEORGE got $400, a fraction, he testified, of the $5,500 that all other returning soldiers were paid and far short of the $2,200 that First Nations veterans were entitled to. The Department of Indian Affairs took charge of aboriginal veterans' benefits and decided that aboriginals needed less compensation because living on a reserve cost less. All other soldiers were paid through the Department of Veterans' Affairs, leading to blatant inequalities in services to native veterans.
Mr. GEORGE didn't know that he was being defrauded by the paltry $400 benefit and he didn't know that his acceptance of the payoff would be taken as assent to revocation of his Indian status.
About a month later he received a blue card in the mail. It meant he was enfranchised -- he could vote, buy alcohol and pay taxes. It also meant he lost his status as a band member.
"I sold my rights and my wife's rights for $400," he would say ruefully. "I was absolutely unaware of what they had done to me." Only with passage of Bill C-31 in 1985 would he regain full status.
Unable to find a job that paid enough to support his family, he re-enlisted, fought in Korea and remained with the army until 1959. He then returned to Forest where he worked for a basket company for many years, earning minimum wage.
Clifford GEORGE was born at the Stoney Point First Nation reserve on Lake Huron on March 11, 1920. He died of heart failure in hospital in Sarnia, Ontario, on September 30. He was 75. He leaves two daughters, seven grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.

Family mourns devoted father
Kenrick CHAPMAN stabbed to death '
He died with love in his heart'
By Tracy HUFFMAN, Crime Reporter
Kenrick CHAPMAN loved his wife, his five children and his five stepchildren.
He tried to teach the children to make good choices, to stay out of trouble and make something of themselves.
The 60-year-old, who came to Canada as a young man from Guyana, was quiet and peaceful.
His stepson, Jamal CLARKE, remembers much of the guidance and advice CHAPMAN gave him.
"A man without principles is no man. You must have class and you must have principles," CLARKE said his stepfather would tell him.
CHAPMAN, a retired Ontario Hydro employee, was fatally stabbed on May 5 in his home near Jane St. and Finch Ave. W. at about 2: 20 p.m. A family friend who was staying at the home has been charged with second-degree murder.
CHAPMAN was buried on Saturday. "He was like a father to me," CLARKE said in an interview before the funeral. "He would teach me, guide me. Most of my thoughts and beliefs today are because of him."
CLARKE, 20, is a York University student and advocate against violence. He is working on several projects in the Jane-Finch community in an effort to help youth realize their potential.
"Ken made an impression on me," CLARKE said. "When I wasn't doing well in school, he supported me and encouraged me to work hard."
But CLARKE said he most appreciated CHAPMAN's love for his mother Janis. "He's always there for my mom. His priority was always my mom and the children," CLARKE said. "He was there for every event."
When CLARKE graduated from high school, CHAPMAN was there, dressed in a nice suit and cowboy boots "with his big camera snapping away."
The man charged in CHAPMAN's death was a close friend of the family.
The day of CHAPMAN's death, CLARKE said he left the house in the late morning, rushing to an appointment. He told CHAPMAN he would see him soon.
A few hours later, a neighbour called CLARKE and told him there were police and paramedics at his house. He rushed home and saw a trail of blood out the front door to the street. His grandmother, who lives with the family, gave him the news.
"I couldn't get mad or angry or sad. I was in shock," CLARKE said. "Why did this happen?"
And, he said: "I was upset that my grandmother was there. She didn't need to see that.
"Death is okay," he said. "An untimely death is not.... But I know Ken was at peace. And he died with love in his heart."
Lawrence GEORGE, 60, is charged with second-degree murder.

Clifford GEORGE, 85: Elder kept his sense of humour
Native elder fought in two wars but found 'enemies' at home
A regular at hearings into cousin's death at Ipperwash park
By Peter EDWARDS, Staff Reporter
Clifford GEORGE, a native elder who retained a boyish sense of humour despite pain that included being a World War 2 prisoner of war and losing his family home to the Canadian government, will be buried tomorrow.
GEORGE was a constant fixture at the Ipperwash inquiry into the shooting death of his cousin, Anthony (Dudley) GEORGE, until August, when he began traditional native and mainstream treatments for cancer. Over the past month, he also suffered two heart attacks and stroke while in hospital.
He died Friday in a Sarnia hospital at the age of 85.
Mr. Justice Sidney LINDEN, chair of the Ipperwash inquiry, praised GEORGE's humour and wisdom over the past 14 months during public hearings in the southwestern Ontario town of Forest, near the Stoney Point reserve where GEORGE was raised.
"Clifford GEORGE's good humour and positive outlook were particularly admired and appreciated," LINDEN said in a prepared statement. "He will be greatly missed by many and his death marks a sad day for all of us."
Lead commission lawyer Derry MILLAR said: "Clifford GEORGE as an elder brought great wisdom to his community and the wider community. His presence at the inquiry virtually every day was an inspiration to all participants."
The inquiry is looking into the death of his distant cousin Dudley GEORGE, 38, who was shot by an Ontario Provincial Police officer late at night on September 6, 1995. Acting Sergeant Kenneth DEANE was convicted of criminal negligence causing death.
Dudley GEORGE was one of two dozen native protestors who occupied Ipperwash Provincial Park at the end of tourist season in 1995, saying it was on a sacred burial ground. Their claims were later supported by documents released by the federal government.
Clifford GEORGE said there were several sacred burial grounds in Ipperwash Provincial Park on Lake Huron near Sarnia. He also loved to tell that he knew the secret burial site of the great native leader Tecumseh, who was killed by U.S. troops during the War of 1812 on the banks of the Thames River, about a 45-minute drive from Stoney Point.
When he testified at the Ipperwash inquiry in September 2004, Clifford GEORGE wore a veteran's blue blazer, with a chest full of war medals from World War 2 and the Korean War, and held an eagle feather, a native symbol for truth.
He told of how the return home from World War 2 was particularly rough for his older brother, Kenneth, who suffered shell shock in combat. Immediately after returning to Canada in 1945, Kenneth GEORGE skipped a party held by his military unit in Guelph to hitchhike to Stoney Point, only to see his community had been levelled for a military base.
"He looked around and found that (his former home) was a barracks, and he couldn't understand that," GEORGE said. "He slept in a ditch for the rest of the night, because he didn't know where to go."
Clifford GEORGE and his two older brothers, all of whom volunteered to fight overseas, were granted permission to visit the graveyard at the military base where their mothers and others from the community were buried.
"There was trenches dug where they were playing soldier, right in our gravesite," GEORGE said. "That is what made it bad for us.... I always say, 'I found all my enemies when I got home.'"
Clifford GEORGE said he tried to bring his English war bride, whom he met while fighting with an anti-aircraft unit in Dover, onto the Kettle Point reserve where his family had been forcibly relocated by the Canadian government in 1942.
However, he testified an official told him it wasn't right to bring a white woman onto a native reserve that would likely never get hydroelectricity or indoor plumbing.
Clifford GEORGE and his cousin Dudley were among several dozen Stoney Point natives who moved back onto the military base in 1993 and refused to leave. In the summer of 1995, the Canadian military moved out.
In an interview, Clifford GEORGE said he welcomed LINDEN's approach of putting Dudley GEORGE's death in the context of history and culture, and striving for healing as well as facts.
"I've been asked a lot of times, 'Don't you hate white people?'" he said in an interview during a break in the inquiry. "I can't hate nobody.... I learned a long time ago if you want to have Friends, you've got to be one."
