Shooter, grieving dad related
Frank GREDA, who died in the shootout, was a trucker and a father of three.
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Crime Reporter
They were both truckers, fathers of three children and went to the same church.
They were also relatives.
But their worlds collided Monday when tragedy took away almost the entire family of one of the London men and left the other one dead.
As Jan CZUBA was left to bury his family and console his surviving daughter, details emerged yesterday about the other man -- Franciszek (Frank) GREDA, 40 -- involved in the triple homicide.
Police found GREDA dead of a gunshot wound in the CZUBA house at 682 Princess Ave., Ontario's Special Investigations Unit said yesterday.
A fire broke out at the house moments after the shooting.
The Special Investigations Unit said GREDA was known to the family, but wouldn't reveal precisely how.
The Special Investigations Unit is a watchdog agency that probes police actions that result in death or injury to civilians.
GREDA, a father with three children under 10, had rented a northeast London apartment with his wife for at least seven years, a neighbour said.
Some neighbours said the family was quiet and friendly. Others, still shocked by the tragedy, declined to comment.
"Out of respect for the family, I don't want to say anything except I'm deeply saddened by it. It's a horrible tragedy," said a neighbour in an apartment above the family.
The GREDA family are members of Our Lady of Czestochowa Church on Hill Street, where the CZUBA family were also parishioners, Rev. Adam Gabriel confirmed.
London police and the Special Investigations Unit are still separately probing the deaths from Monday's chaos.
The force is probing the deaths of Halina CZUBA, 37, and her two children, Michal, 5, and Julia, 13.
The Children's Aid Society of London and Middlesex is helping police -- common in cases where kids are involved -- but won't say whether it had previously been involved with the family.
The Special Investigations Unit is probing GREDA's death.
GREDA fired with a shotgun at two London police officers as they approached the brown brick bungalow just before 2: 30 a.m. Monday. One officer returned fire, the Special Investigations Unit said.
London police found GREDA dead inside, with a gunshot wound, along with the bodies of Halina, Julia and Michal. It's still unknown whether GREDA died of a self-inflicted gunshot.
Autopsies began yesterday.

Homicide No. 13
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Crime Reporter
A Toronto-area man faces a second-degree murder charge after one man was shot to death and another injured in a pub parking lot early yesterday.
Dwayne PITTER, 23, of Vaughan, was charged yesterday with second-degree murder and attempted murder in connection with London's record 13th homicide.
PITTER is to appear in a London court today.
Joshua Kenneth WILLIAMS, 22, of the London area, was shot in the torso outside the Roxbury Pub and Grill at 1165 Oxford St. E. at 2: 20 a.m.
He died later.
Three people, including PITTER, were taken into custody. The other two were released, police said last night.
Detectives scoured the lot yesterday as they wrestled with a skyrocketing number of homicides this year.
Neighbours said they saw a crowd leave the bar about 2: 30 a.m., then heard screaming.
"I heard the gunshots and I saw someone go down. I thought it was firecrackers," said a woman who was standing outside the Roxbury near a variety store at the time. She did want to give her name.
"I heard two shots and I ran into the (variety) store."
Police said a dispute outside the bar led to the shooting.
Police and paramedics arrived to find WILLIAMS seriously hurt and another man shot in the arm. The second man was treated and released from hospital.
Police have recovered a handgun and are not looking for any more weapons, said Det. Andrew WHITFORD.
It's unclear whether WILLIAMS, the injured man and the three people in custody had just left the Roxbury when the shooting happened, WHITFORD said.
But there were about 40 people in the parking lot when a disagreement broke out, he said. Police are still probing the cause of the dispute.
WHITFORD said many witnesses: have come forward and bar staff have co-operated.
Roxbury staff declined comment yesterday.
Neighbours have complained of fights and loud noise after the bar's closing time.
"It's scary," said Brenda PARSONS, who lives in a nearby townhouse complex. "You don't need television to live in this neighbourhood. There's enough entertainment outside."
PARSONS said she thinks police should patrol the area more regularly on Friday and Saturday nights.
The parking lot is the same one in which Ryan VLAAD, 26, died after being punched in the head during an early morning brawl in July 2002.
Ward 3 Coun. Bernie MacDONALD said he's fielded complaints from neighbours who have had beer bottles thrown at their houses and on their property after 2 a.m. and have heard fights breaking out.
"This has been an ongoing thing with the residents," he said.
The concerns were passed on to police and MacDONALD thought the problems had been quelled until he heard about yesterday's shooting.
But MacDONALD said he thinks drugs are the "root evil" behind violence and shootings in the city this year.
"Until we cut the flow of drugs, we're going to see this and it's going to continue to rise," he said.
Police said they don't know whether drugs were involved in the fatal shooting.
Officers blocked off a large section of the strip mall, which also houses a Sport Mart, Goodwill, variety store, karate school and Tim Hortons.
A green Jeep and a black car also were taped off, though police wouldn't say why.
A shell casing and knife were visible at the scene.
A green camouflage hat, grey T-shirt, plastic beer cups, a cigarette pack and a lighter were strewn near what appeared to be a bloody stain near the black car.
Forensic detectives picked through the evidence and used a fire department aerial truck to photograph and videotape the lot.
An autopsy will be conducted today to determine the cause of death.

Ed STEVENS marched his way into city's heart
Mr. STEVENS will be best remembered proudly marching in his bright red tunic and black and yellow trousers and hat at the head of his Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute band
By Bill HENRY. Sun Times Staff, Page A1
The much-loved founder of the old Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute Drum and Trumpet Band died Wednesday at the age of 94.
Ed STEVENS was a popular Owen Sound elementary school teacher and principal and high school English and history teacher from 1930 until he retired in 1969.
He was a cadet instructor, master of his Masonic lodge, active Division Street United Church member and chaired the Grey County Board of Education in the early 1970s.
But Mr. STEVENS will be best remembered proudly marching in his bright red tunic and black and yellow trousers and hat at the head of his Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute band, Friends, family and former band members said Thursday.
"It was a very, very popular organization and he was kind of a local hero and has been ever since," said Fred FURNESS, a former Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute principal and student at the school when the band was at its peak in the early 1950s.
"He's always been at the front of it. He's been the focus of it really and he's well known for it."
Mr. STEVENS started the band in 1946 after taking a job at Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute teaching English and history and leading the school cadets.
Although he had no musical training he believed the cadets should have a marching band and eventually taught himself percussion, his son Ted STEVENS said Thursday.
The band became a community fixture, marching in Santa Claus parades and playing on Remembrance Day and at other special events for many years.
The band reunited in 1981 after a long hiatus for the 125th Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute reunion and many members continued to perform regularly throughout the community over the next 11 or 12 years as the Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute Alumni Trumpet Band.
Members marched again behind Mr. STEVENS for the 145th school anniversary in 1996 and last performed together during the emotional farewell to the old Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute building when it closed in 1999.
"That was the wind up of it all," former member George JEFFERSON said "He was marching with the rest of us right up to the very end of it."
Since then, many of Mr. STEVENS' " Boys" have gathered annually with their former teacher, mentor and band leader on his birthday. Sixteen of them got together last summer and were delighted when Mr. STEVENS wore his band uniform to the party, George GREEN said.
He recalled Mr. STEVENS as a fair but demanding and inspiring leader.
"He was strict. He wasn't a laid-back fellow. If you did something wrong, he'd tell you about it. In the trumpet band he wanted perfection and that's what we strived for," GREEN said.
He also cared deeply about his students and looked after them well, including offering GREEN work after class and in summer.
"That's the kind of guy he was. He was more like a mentor to me and I think anybody that was in the band was the same. Ed looked after his boys and he's still looking after his boys."
That inspired unusual devotion among his students and band members, GREEN added.
Helen JOHNSTONE was a former student who said the man's 'basic decency' was an inspiration. He was an exemplary educator who made a difference in the community and will be much missed, she added.
"He was such a superb person. I always considered him my mentor," JOHNSTONE said.
They later served together Grey County school trustees and continued a lifelong Friendship. His love of books, literature and learning partly inspired her own similar interests, she said Thursday.
"He had a brilliant mind and a devilish sense of humour," JOHNSTONE said.
Ted STEVENS said education and learning were the principal interests throughout his father's long and active life. He cared about his students, wanted them to do well and kept in touch with many of them over the years.
Until just a few months ago Mr. STEVENS was corresponding with several Christian scholars as he explored his most recent interest, the history of Christianity, his son said.
He began teaching at Dufferin school in Owen Sound in 1930 and was principal at both Hillcrest and Victoria schools. He also taught at both Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute and West Hill Secondary School and was supervisor of academic training at Georgian College.
Edmund Campbell STEVENS died in Owen Sound Wednesday morning.
A memorial service was planned for 11 a.m. today at Division Street United Church.

George SALVERSON, Playwright: 1916-2005
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's first drama editor wrote a thousand radio plays, switched effortlessly to television and wrote a hit musical
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, May 7, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- He was Canada's king of radio drama in its golden age. George SALVERSON wrote about a thousand radio plays in a career that began in 1945 and lasted until long after the arrival of television. He was a volume man who never kept count and, in fact, held few copies of his work. Week after week, Mr. SALVERSON generated a one-hour Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio play with a careful story line and perfect dialogue. The phrase "writer's block" didn't exist for him; he was a freelancer and he had to eat.
He did have a routine, though. For many years he worked for Stages, the main Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio drama of the week. His work week started on a Tuesday or a Wednesday with an idea. It could be something in the news, such as prison reform or mental health. Radio dramas were used to deal with social issues the same way television documentaries or long news items are today.
After the idea was nailed down, Mr. SALVERSON would write one act a day, with almost all his plays having three acts. That left him ready for the rehearsal, which took all day Saturday. During and after the rehearsal, he and the director, either Esse LJUNGH or Andrew ALLAN, would work polishing the script.
"The live performance was on Sunday," remembers Alfie SCOPP who was one of the actors. "We could come dressed casually for the rehearsal, but when we went live at 5 o'clock on Sunday we had to be dressed in a suit and a tie."
Studio G on Jarvis Street in Toronto would be filled with as many as 20 actors, including such well-known names as John DRAINIE, Aileen SEATON and Bud KNAPP. No matter how long their part, actors were all paid $45 a performance.
One example of the radio play as social commentary was a series called Return Journey, which Mr. SALVERSON wrote in 1951. It was based on research done at Kingston Penitentiary on how hard it was for a released prisoner to make it on the outside. The story tells how a prisoner was afraid of the outside world but also afraid of failure and a return to behind bars.
He did much of the research for that particular play while on his honeymoon in Kingston, Ontario His wife Olive SCOTT, went by the stage name of Sandra SCOTT, and acted in many of his productions. "George was always amazed that this glamorous actress married him," remembers his friend Mr. SCOPP.
The work on his honeymoon showed how an idea could be plucked from the headlines. In a recent e-mail to his daughter, Julie, he said the early Canadian Broadcasting Corporation almost invented documentary drama for radio. "Now it's routine in Law and Order."
Later when Mr. SALVERSON moved to television, he used the same techniques for coming up with story ideas. Once he met a man he knew who had been a successful advertising executive but could no longer find work because he was over 45. "The trouble is, I'm over-age and over qualified," the man told Mr. SALVERSON.
The same line came out of the mouth of Walter, the fictional version of the ad man in the television play, The Write-Off. Mr. SALVERSON spoke to people in the business world, talked to employment agencies and tried to find out just how many Walters there were in Canada. He figured there to be at least 500,000 under-employed older people.
"The real Walter attended one of the taping sessions and he walked into the control room as Rudi [director Rudi DORN] was directing the firing scene," recalled Mr. SALVERSON in a 1968 interview. "When I asked him was this anything like the way it really happened, he gave me a long look and remarked, 'Have you ever been through a nightmare twice?' "
George SALVERSON's early life read like an improbable script for a radio play. His father, the son of Scandinavian immigrants, worked for the Canadian National Railway and the family lived, at one time or another, in Port Arthur, Ontario, Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Kamloops, British Columbia, Vancouver and Victoria. Fortunately, he spent enough time in Port Arthur to go to high school there. His mother, Laura Goodman SALVERSON, wrote and published 10 books. She won the Governor General's Award twice -- for her novel The Dark Weaver in 1937 and then for her autobiography Confessions of an Immigrant's Daughter in1939.
Even so, George SALVERSON never wanted to be a playwright. He set out to be a newscaster and was headed in the right direction when he got his first job at CFAR in Flin Flon, Manitoba He performed every role at the tiny radio station, including writing and reading the news. The highlight of his newscasting career occurred on December 7, 1941, when he told the 7,000 people of Flin Flon of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and he did it dressed in a suit.
His second job came along in what was then the biggest city in Western Canada -- Winnipeg. But at CKRC, they had other plans. He could read the occasional newscast if he liked, but it wasn't news readers they wanted. They had plenty, thanks. What they needed was a playwright, someone who could knock off a quickie radio drama and also take a part or two.
His first play was a success, and Mr. SALVERSON soon found himself doing the writing, acting, producing and sound effects. He resolved to perfect his dramas, drifting over to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to pick up pointers on how to write believable dialogue and interesting story ideas.
For a couple of years, Mr. SALVERSON wrote, produced and directed plays for Eaton's, when the department store used radio dramas to sell its wares. Then, in 1948, he was given work by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and moved to Toronto. Among his first shows was Paper Railroad, a play based on his father's work life.
From the time he arrived in Toronto he was never short of works or awards. He won a first in the Canadian Radio Awards of 1948 and, the following year, received another from Ohio State University. In 1949, he adapted Dracula for radio, a play that starred Lorne GREEN, Alan KING and Lister SINCLAIR.
When the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation turned to television in the fall of 1952, Mr. SALVERSON was soon writing both radio and television plays and he became the network's first drama editor. One of his plays, The Discoverers, was performed on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and on Kraft Theatre in the United States. The play was about Banting and Best's discovery of insulin.
Later on he wrote documentaries as well as dramas for television. Perhaps his most famous was Air of Death. "That changed the course of public affairs programming on television," said Jane CHALMERS, vice-president of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio. "In October of 1967, this documentary report, written by George, and dealing with air pollution in Canada, aired on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television, pre-empting the top-rated The Ed Sullivan Show."
His script laid the subject bare and resulted in a lawsuit.
"Dad worked for six months helping the lawyers and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation with the lawsuit. They won their case," said Julie SALVERSON. "He used to joke it was the only time he had such steady work."
He wrote one production for the stage, the musical The Legend of the Dumbells, which was produced at the Charlottetown Festival in 1977. It was about a Canadian troupe of First World War entertainers and used songs from the era. It travelled to the National Arts Centre in Ottawa and the Elgin Theatre in Toronto and continues to be staged.
When Studio G closed in July 1993, before the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation moved to its new Toronto headquarters, he wrote a 10-minute sketch for radio. It was called End Credits.
For many years, Mr. SALVERSON taught writing at Ryerson University in Toronto and, in the process, found that some people were unteachable. He told his daughter Julie, in one of their many e-mails, the story of a 50-year-old novelist who wanted to turn one of his books into a screenplay. He just couldn't do it.
"When I dramatized, I always went into the scene myself. I was sitting there doing the acting. And away went the characters, whooping it up. My writer friend remained a writer. He stood outside the scene and tried to tell you what was going on. And nobody felt anything."
As he grew older, George SALVERSON kept his mind in shape with mental exercises. One of them was memorizing The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. He could recite any verse on command, and was working on memorizing it backwards. He also wrote a lot of limericks. On the Saturday before he died, he had a new one for Alfie SCOPP. It went like this:
A well-endowed woman from Brussels
Had a veritable plethora of muscles,
She said with some pride,
There are others I hide,
And bring them out only in tussles.
He also wrote a book called Around the World in 80 Limericks, with bits of doggerel for each of the world's major cities. He wrote until the end.
George SALVERSON was born in St. Catharines, Ont, on April 30, 1916. He died on April 9, 2005, after a fall at his apartment at the Performing Arts Lodge in Toronto. He was 88. A public memorial service will be held there at 6 p.m., Monday, May 9. He is survived by his daughter Julie and son Scott. His wife died in 2000.

SMITH, Peter Morgan
By Iain MacKIE, Thursday, September 1, 2005, Page A22
Museum interpreter, host, friend. Born January 20, 1940, in Tillsonburg, Ontario Died May 2 in London, Ontario, of organ failure, aged Peter Morgan SMITH was outwardly a gregarious man who was loyal and generous to a fault. Inwardly, he was intensely private. Born in Tillsonburg, Ontario, he moved to London in 1968 to attend the University of Western Ontario. There he met his life partner, Rick GREEN, then an engineering student. When Rick entered medical school at Dalhousie in 1972, he and Peter moved to Halifax, where Peter completed his degree at Saint Mary's University, developing a long-term love affair with the Maritimes. Rick and Peter moved back to London in 1978, when Rick started his family practice.
I met Peter in 1979 when I moved to London for my internship. We became inseparable Friends, sharing a love of cooking, the theatre and classical music. My love of Richard Strauss can be traced back to Peter, who played Strauss's Four Last Songs incessantly. Fruhling was our favourite segment, its soaring melody echoing the optimism that pervaded our lives. As he hummed along, Peter could often be found with one of his beloved Abyssinian cats slung around his neck, both well contented.
Peter had a fierce intellect and dinner parties were never tranquil events. Loud debates raged over fine food and better wine. Peter could argue with fervour any side of the discussion. He was well-read, well-travelled and well-loved.
Peter could entertain 50 people with ease. An avid horse-racing fan, he and Rick hosted an annual Kentucky Derby party each May. While few of his Friends were remotely interested in horse racing, we would not miss the Derby party. As the magnolia trees came into bloom, Friends would gather, bottle of wine in hand, and pick a ticket with a horse's name. Those holding the winning ticket won the wine, or a share of it: favourites were given multiple tickets. How jealous we were when a long shot won, and some lucky guest won 50 bottles of wine!
Peter worked for Museums London as an interpreter at Eldon House, London's oldest historic home. Peter loved his work, leading visitors on tours of the home and hosting the annual Canada Day garden party. For years, Peter led historical walks through the leafy haunts of old London. His knowledge of London history was encyclopedic.
Rick and Peter's presence as a couple, in the days long before the same-sex marriage debate, was another constant in their Friends' lives. Their influence on the society around them, and on me and my development as a human being, was immense. They taught me how to love a friend, how not to be afraid of myself or the world. It is a debt that I can never repay.
When Rick died of cancer in 1994, his death had a profound impact on Peter. He became withdrawn and introverted, avoiding many of his Friends, as if trying to erase that link with the past and happier memories. When my partner and I moved to Vancouver in 1996, our ability to see Peter was further diminished. We talked infrequently. I met with Peter for lunch one day last November. He seemed happy and relaxed, talking about coming to Vancouver for a visit. It was as if the old Peter had come back, once again.
Peter developed sudden liver and kidney failure in the spring of this year. He refused a transplant. Six days before the Kentucky Derby, Peter died.
I was back in London a few days too late to say goodbye. The magnolia trees were in bloom again, their petals dropping gently in the warm breezes. When I see them, I will think of Peter and silently thank him for being a friend.
Iain MacKIE is Peter's friend.

Canadian composer penned 200 works
By Robert EVERETT- GREEN, Monday, September 19, 2005, Page S10
Composer Harry FREEDMAN, a major figure in Canadian music for the past four decades, died in a Toronto hospital on Friday of prostate cancer. He was 83.
Mr. FREEDMAN's rugged and expressive music has been performed by every major Canadian orchestra, as well as choirs, chamber ensembles, soloists and dance companies, including the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. He also wrote incidental stage music for the Stratford Festival and several film scores, some of which featured the voice of his wife, soprano Mary MORRISON.
He had a strong feeling for Canada and its potential, and for the romance and beauty of its natural environment. Keewaydin, one of his most popular pieces, is a choral incantation of Ojibwa place names that ends with the cry of a loon.
Mr. FREEDMAN was born in Poland in 1922, but grew up in Medicine Hat, Alberta., and Winnipeg, where he studied visual art and became a fan of big-band jazz. Both jazz and painting left a lasting impression on his art as a musician. After serving in the Royal Canadian Air Force in the Second World War, he studied composition with John Weinzweig and took summer classes with Aaron Copland and Olivier Messiaen.
Mr. FREEDMAN's musical career began as a performer in dance bands, and he said that the first composer to arouse his interest in orchestration was Benny Goodman. He played English horn and oboe in the Toronto Symphony Orchestra for 25 years, before leaving the orchestra to become a full-time composer in 1971.
He left some 200 compositions, and worked almost to the end. Manipulating Mario, one of his last completed scores, will be performed for the first time by Esprit Orchestra in Toronto on October 27.

Harry FREEDMAN, Musician: (1922-2005)
Composer who loved to mix his medias first learned about performance as a clarinetist in dance bands, wrote for radio and television, and eschewed academia to make a living by writing modern Canadian concert music
By Robert EVERETT- GREEN, Tuesday, September 20, 2005, Page S9
Harry FREEDMAN was a composer who looked at paintings and saw a symphony, and who listened to jazz and heard things too good to be exiled from places where classical music was played. He had a gift for translation, not from one language to another but between media of expression.
Mr. FREEDMAN was a key figure in Canadian music for most of his long career. He was an acclaimed composer of concert works who affected the lives of many who never heard his name, through his scores for film and television.
The best of his 200-odd works display a talent for conveying the mood he found in a landscape, the kinetic immediacy of a tropical dance, or the inward turmoil of a character he knew only from an outline for a ballet. He listened widely to the music of his time and it showed, not through outright imitation but through a hard and skillful assimilation of disparate things into a personal style of writing.
Mr. FREEDMAN had the large presence and easy laugh of a man who was confident of his abilities and aware of his personal charm. He was the kind of man who went at life with both hands, seizing what he needed and letting the rest go, without much regard for what someone else may have thought was more important.
"Harry went his own way," said flutist Robert AITKEN, who premiered several of Mr. FREEDMAN's pieces and played in the Lyric Arts Trio with Mr. FREEDMAN's wife, the soprano Mary MORRISON. "He was an individualistic guy, and composing was No. 1 in his life."
Mr. FREEDMAN was lucky to come into his maturity at a time when Canadians were becoming more aware of themselves and their cultural achievements. Rose Latulippe, the full-length ballet (with choreographer Brian Macdonald, a frequent collaborator) that first established his reputation at a truly national level, was commissioned for Expo 67 and became the first colour arts special broadcast on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Television.
He was lucky also to have a view of the musician's life and role that was unlike that of most of his peers. He first learned about performance as a clarinetist in dance bands, absorbed many lessons about concision and drama from writing for radio and television, and never took an academic job.
Mr. FREEDMAN was born in Poland in 1922, but immigrated with his family to Medicine Hat, Alberta., when he was three. In later life he vividly recalled seeing native trappers come to his father's shop to sell their furs -- an experience that guided an interest in native culture.
In 1931 the family moved to Winnipeg, where Mr. FREEDMAN's strong-willed, arts-loving mother enrolled him in art classes. Soon, he was imagining paintings that might express the experience of hearing music.
He started clarinet at 18 and discovered jazz through Benny Goodman's recordings, which he wore out trying to uncover the secrets of how Goodman voiced his saxophones. He joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1942, toured with the force's Silver Band, and began to get a larger sense of the land whose awesome breadth and isolation he would eventually try to represent in music.
Like thousands of ex-servicemen, Mr. FREEDMAN came back to civilian life in a rush, taking up oboe, piano and composition lessons simultaneously at the Toronto Conservatory of Music. His first compositions showed the influence of his teacher, John WEINZWEIG, though Mr. FREEDMAN never let anyone else's music turn his head for long. He got a job, which he kept till 1971, playing English horn in the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.
"Harry was a pro," said Mr. WEINZWEIG, with whom Mr. FREEDMAN and several others founded the League of Canadian Composers in 1951. "He knew the orchestra from the inside out, being a fine performer himself."
Mr. WEINZWEIG introduced his pupil to the practice of building compositions by manipulating a row of all 12 chromatic tones in a given order -- still a novel practice in Canada at the time. With the exception of a string of works in the fifties, the row was part of Mr. FREEDMAN's art till the end of his life. He often used palindromes and numeric sequences as structural pillars, even in apparently episodic works.
But Mr. FREEDMAN was completely uninterested in "number music." He usually began working on a piece by making a prose sketch of how the piece might achieve the kind of feeling and effect that he wanted. Only after this script was established did he begin to think about notes.
"The most important part of composing is deciding what the piece is about -- what's the mood, texture, orchestration, movement," he said. "The notes are the least important thing."
Following his 1951 marriage to Mary MORRISON (with whom he had three children,) Mr. FREEDMAN began exploring ways to increase the dramatic effect of his music, and to take advantage of the freedom inherent in jazz. He spent much of the decade working in television and film, learning how to register dramatic changes of mood and atmosphere within a phrase or two, without necessarily sacrificing the degree of musical complexity he found interesting.
"One of the best things Aaron Copland said to our group in Tanglewood [where Mr. FREEDMAN studied during the summer of 1949] was that music should be as simple as possible, but no simpler," he said. It was a creed that worked for his most involved orchestral compositions and for the many pieces he wrote for children.
In 1958, he wrote Images, a set of three pieces intended to serve as abstract evocations of particular paintings, including canvases by Lawren Harris and Jean-Paul Riopelle. It was a reversal of his art-school ambition, and became one of his most popular pieces.
Mr. FREEDMAN wrote music for all kinds of players and purposes. He had a particular knack for writing for woodwinds, and in later years became keenly interested in textures achieved by building up great masses of tones -- "skyscraper chords," as music analyst Gail Dixon put it in her 2004 monograph, The Music of Harry FREEDMAN.
He was a skillful orchestrator, who keep his mind open to new sounds, frequently from familiar sources. His orchestra often came with a battery of percussion, used to find new combinations of timbres to sustain his driving rhythms. He was fond of using the voice for its purely musical qualities, a project made easier by his marriage to a first-class soprano. He explored electronic sounds and tape when the means for doing so were still relatively crude.
By the early 1970s, he was able to support himself entirely through composition, and quit the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. In some years, his royalties from radio alone topped $25,000. One of his landmark pieces from those years was Celebration, a superb concerto for baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan in which Mr. FREEDMAN finally solved the puzzle of how to unite the freedom of jazz and the rigours of classical composition as equal partners.
He continued to flower artistically during the eighties, writing one of his most popular pieces, Oiseaux exotiques, for the National Ballet of Canada in 1984. He also underwent a painful period of psychoanalysis, and chafed at the retreat of governments at all levels from the kind of cultural patronage that seemed normal in the sixties and seventies.
He felt himself being pushed to the sidelines by an increasing emphasis on young composers, at the expense of those of his generation. He despised the way music had crept into department stores, dentists' offices and many other public spaces, saying that ubiquity dulled the ear.
His last decade was marked by continued successes, including a 1997 choral work, Borealis, that won praise internationally, and Valleys, a large-scale 2002 composition that Ken Winters, writing in The Globe and Mail, described as "captivating." But Mr. FREEDMAN could be cantankerous when asserting his place on the Canadian cultural scene, or defending against what he regarded as slights to his achievement. He had spirit, and sometimes it was fighting spirit.
A few days before he died, I spoke to Mr. FREEDMAN by telephone, and told him I had always admired his tenacity and drive. His normally robust voice, reduced to a frail shadow of itself, replied: "If you haven't got that, what have you got?"
Harry FREEDMAN was born on April 5, 1922, in Lodz, Poland. He died September 16, 2005, in Toronto, of prostate cancer.
He was 83. He is survived by his wife, Mary MORRISON, and daughters, Karen (Kim), Cyndie, and Lori. He also leaves his brother Doc and sister Dorothy.
A tribute to Harry FREEDMAN will be held at Humphrey-Miles Funeral Home, 1403 Bayview Ave., Toronto, at 3 p.m. on Friday.

Magnus ELIASON, Politicial Organizer: (1911-2005)
He joined the Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation the year it was founded and became a gifted backroom planner who groomed such up-and-comers as Ed SCHREYER
By Sabitri GHOSH, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, December 2, 2005, Page S9
Kingston, Ontario -- In 1957, officials at Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation headquarters were looking for somebody to drive Magnus ELIASON. It was one nomination that Ed SCHREYER, then an ambitious young politico, would rather not have got.
"Frankly, I thought it was going to be a drag, driving around a political organizer," Mr. SCHREYER said. "At the age of 20, I had other things in mind."
But the white-haired éminence grise -- who was severely visually impaired as a result of congenital albinism -- turned out to be no ordinary passenger. As Mr. SCHREYER drove him through the Manitoba countryside, he cracked picaresque jokes, told stories from Norse mythology, and recounted stirring anecdotes from his days as an original Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation member.
"He was such a marvellous, marvellous storehouse of knowledge and so entertaining as a raconteur that, after that first chore, I genuinely volunteered to drive him around," Mr. SCHREYER said. They talked so much, added the former Manitoba premier and governor-general, "we never turned the radio on once."
Though his own résumé as a politician was limited, Mr. ELIASON played a singular role in the rise of the Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation and its successor, the New Democratic Party, through tireless organizing and nurturing political talent like Mr. SCHREYER, who described him as a "tremendous influence on my early life."
The son of Icelandic immigrants, Mr. ELIASON heard of the 1932 founding of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation while homesteading with his brothers in Sunnybrook, British Columbia An immediate convert, he became one of the party's most zealous missionaries, preaching its program of socialism and full employment as he freight-hopped during the Depression in search of work. In March of 1935, he went on a proselytizing trek across northern British Columbia and Alberta, walking to every farm in a 60-kilometre radius to drop off Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation pamphlets and spread the party's message. By his calculation, he achieved a 65-per-cent success rate.
As Mr. ELIASON's activism grew, the Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation hired him as an organizer to reinforce its Prairie base. His tactical savvy and attention to detail proved critical in winning Tommy Douglas a second term as Saskatchewan premier during a close 1956 campaign.
"Magnus could walk into a room and know where everybody was and who they were, and zero right in, find out just what the details were," said Jim MALOWAY, Mr. ELIASON's long-time business partner. "So if he wanted them to come to a meeting, he would have their name and phone number and the time they were home, and then organize a car to go pick them up. You can't beat a guy with organizational ability like that."
In 1958, Mr. ELIASON returned to his native Manitoba to work full-time for the Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation national office. Over the next decade, he more than tripled party memberships in the province. A born marketer, he loved going to people's homes, setting out the Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation platform as tangibly as he would demonstrate the merits of no-rip nylons or encyclopedia sets in his erstwhile career as a door-to-door salesman.
"He loved sales and getting directly to the sales pitch in a way that would just make me cringe," Mr. SCHREYER said. "But most of the time, it worked."
One winter, Mr. SCHREYER said, he drove Mr. ELIASON to a tumbledown farm -- "the farmer was chopping ice in the water trough for his livestock; you could see he was just struggling, financially" and watched with consternation as Mr. ELIASON unloaded his high-powered sales pitch.
"He probably was pleased that he could afford $5 to help out a people's movement," Mr. ELIASON later said when Mr. SCHREYER remonstrated with him. "Besides, you can't build a viable political party... on sentiment alone."
While unwavering, Mr. ELIASON's loyalty to the party was not unquestioning. By his own admission, he "entertained some doubts about the political wisdom" of amalgamating with the Canadian Labour Congress to form the New Democratic Party in 1961. At the New Democratic Party's inaugural leadership convention, he went against the party mainstream again, unsuccessfully supporting Hazen Argue over Mr. Douglas.
Convinced the party would lose Saskatchewan if Mr. Douglas left for Ottawa, Mr. ELIASON saw its subsequent defeat there as unwelcome vindication. "In politics," he said in his 1997 memoir, A Life on the Left, "I often sense a lot of things in my bones."
Mr. ELIASON's political intuition astounded Mr. MALOWAY, a Manitoba Member of Legislative Assembly since 1986. "He could predict the number of seats in an election campaign down to one or two. He used to phone me before an election and say, 'Well, Jim, I think you guys are going to get 13, or 20,' or whatever it was: He just had a great ability to sense this stuff."
In the mid-1960s, certain that Mr. SCHREYER was the key to an New Democratic Party victory in Manitoba, Mr. ELIASON secured an agreement from party leader Russ PAULLEY to resign in favour of the young member of Parliament. When Sid GREEN threatened to thwart his plan by contesting the leadership, he helped Mr. PAULLEY stave off the challenge. His protégé's ascension to party leader in 1969, followed by his election later that year as Manitoba's first New Democratic Party premier, marked the high point of Mr. ELIASON's career.
Domestically, the long-time bachelor had also found another kind of perfect candidate: nurse and New Democratic Party supporter Catherine MacFARLANE, whom he married in 1965.
Mrs. ELIASON's niece, Wanda OPANUBI, felt Mr. ELIASON -- the consummate political organizer -- craved someone who could bring order to his chaotic home life. "Magnus was the child of the marriage," she said. "He was not only the husband, but the kid, and he did need a certain amount of care."
Backed by his wife, Mr. ELIASON finally realized some of his most long-standing ambitions. He bought an New Democratic Party colleague's insurance company and became a respected businessman. Then, in 1968, he won a seat on Winnipeg City Council representing a downtown ward. Championing revitalization of the urban core and the preservation of heritage buildings, he served five terms before retiring in 1989.
It was the only public office Mr. ELIASON ever held. Decades earlier, he had run for alderman in Vancouver, but managed to repel both poles of the 1940s electorate by defending Japanese Canadians' right to vote while simultaneously disavowing communism.
"He had a streak of idealism," Mr. SCHREYER said, "but he often spoke of the need to temper that with reality. He used the word a lot: 'reality,' along with 'common sense,' 'logic' and 'analysis.'"
Mr. ELIASON's deference to reality caused the two men -- who "had a tendency to agree on just about every issue," Mr. SCHREYER said -- to disagree on one point. Mr. SCHREYER believed a party should never expel its members under any circumstances, especially on policy, while Mr. ELIASON thought it was sometimes necessary for the sake of party unity.
Mr. SCHREYER found it ironic, then, when Mr. ELIASON started taking positions contrary to the party line on issues such as abortion. In recent years, his commanding baritone could often be heard at New Democratic Party gatherings projecting a sharply dissident voice. "I know it irritated some folks," Mr. SCHREYER said, "but I admired him all the more for it."
The same fearlessness also characterized Mr. ELIASON as a salesman and canvasser. He liked to quip, "An adventure lies behind every door."
Mrs. OPANUBI offered his family's explanation for it: "He couldn't read expressions on people's faces. So he just kept on going."
Ultimately, Mr. ELIASON's readiness to come face to face with anyone or anything nearly killed him. On his business's busiest day of 1978 -- the province's February deadline for renewing car insurance -- he was working late into the night at his home office. "We closed at 6 o'clock," Mr. MALOWAY said, "but there would always be people coming by to insure their cars who would show up at 7, 8, 9 o'clock, and he would help them: He was extremely customer-friendly and would never turn a customer away."
Hindered by his near-blindness, Mr. ELIASON inadvertently opened the door to a gunman, who threatened to kill him unless his wife handed over their money. The couple survived the experience physically unharmed but emotionally brutalized.
What happened next was almost as extraordinary. The usually voluble Mr. ELIASON never spoke of the traumatic incident with anyone except his niece and business partner. Nor did his Friends detect even a subtle shift in his personality or political views: On crime, he continued to argue, as always, for rehabilitation over retributive justice. And he still opened his door whenever people came calling.
Magnus ELIASON was born in Arnes, Manitoba, on June 21, 1911.
He died after a brief illness in Winnipeg on November 11, 2005. He was predeceased by his wife.
