COLE, Karen Edith (née LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH)
After a sudden but courageous battle with cancer, Karen Edith COLE of Woodstock Ontario was accepted into the Lord's arms on Tuesday, April 5th, 2005 from Surrey Memorial Hospital in Surrey, British Columbia. She was taken from us far too soon -- she was only in her 58th year with so many things she still wanted to see and do. But she left behind the best of herself in her children, and we will uphold her legacy for as long as we walk the earth. Our mother's short life was one filled with many joys, but also many trials and tribulations. Now, she can finally rest peacefully, no longer weighed down by the worries of this world. She was a mother, daughter, sister, grandmother, friend and mentor to many people. We will never forget what she meant to all of us.
She was a mother to Nikki and Brad HUNTER of London, Ontario, Domonique and Angelito DOMINGO of Bellingham, Washington, Candace COLE of Aldergrove, British Columbia and Vincent COLE of Aldergrove, British Columbia. She was the daughter of Jack and Sylvia LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH of Woodstock, Ontario and sister to Kerry LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH of Bradenton, Florida. She was a grandmother to Desiree EATON of London, Ontario, and the hopeful grandma of Dom and Angel's future children. She was a dear friend to many, but most especially Susette NEEDHAM who was the best friend mom had ever known.
Mom was also a mentor to many, and in her death we have learned even more about her goodness and farreaching generosity. She will be sadly missed in more ways than we even know yet. But Mom lived to laugh, and we're certain she's looking down upon us all now and rejoicing each time we find a moment to smile or laugh in her memory. So we ought not linger in sadness for too long because somehow, some way, Karen COLE will find a way to reach down from heaven and kick us in the pants if we do. We love you Mom. The family would like to thank everyone for their prayers and support these last few months -- they have meant more than words can express. Support by way of contributions to the British Columbia Cancer Society and/or participation in Relay for Life and other cancer initiatives would be greatly treasured.

Advocate hailed for 'massive spirit'
Greenpeace co-founder Bob HUNTER is remembered for his tenacity and humour.
By John McKAY, Canadian Press
Toronto -- Bob HUNTER, who co-founded Greenpeace and was also a broadcaster, journalist, prolific author and political hopeful, died yesterday after a lengthy battle with prostate cancer. He was 63.
In his most recent public role, the Manitoba-born HUNTER was the ecology news specialist for CHUM's Citytv and CP24 television channels.
He was perhaps best known to Toronto viewers for Paper Cuts, a morning television segment in which he wore a bathrobe and commented on stories in the day's newspapers.
"This was a man with a great loving heart, a brilliant mind and a massive spirit," said Stephen HURLBUT, vice-president of news programming for Citytv. "It is a sadder world today, but a better world because of him."
HUNTER died surrounded by Bobbi, his wife of 31 years, and his children Will, Emily, Conan and Justine. Funeral arrangements were yet to be decided.
"Bob was an inspirational storyteller, an audacious fighter and an unpretentious mystic," said John DOHERTY, chair of Greenpeace Canada in a statement. "He was serious about saving the world while always maintaining a sense of humour."
HUNTER first came to prominence in Vancouver in 1971 when he was invited to join a group taking a charter vessel to Alaska to protest nuclear testing the U.S. began on Amchitka Island in the Aleutians in 1965.
"I thought I was going to be a reporter, taking notes," the one-time newspaper reporter remarked at the time.
"In reality, I wound up on first watch."
He stayed for the 45-day duration of the voyage and subsequently helped shape the beginning of the Greenpeace Foundation in '72.
Today, the organization has more than 2.5 million members with a presence in 40 countries.
He left Greenpeace's employ in '81 and turned to writing and broadcasting to transmit his green message. He was once named one of Time magazine's top eco-heroes of the 20th century.
In 2001, he ran unsuccessfully for the Ontario Liberal party for a by-election seat.

Memories of you
Each and everyday we think of you,
And sometimes there might be tear or two
But, on the long weekends that were meant for you,
We remember the days piled in the back of the Pick-up truck, heading off on a camping trip
All the fun, all the laughing
A little fishing, a little visiting, maybe a drink or two
Always having a good time
These are, Our memories of you.
Love always Reta and your Family.

"To Those I Love"
by Isla Paschal Richardson
If I should ever leave you
whom I love
To go along the Silent way,
grieve not,
Nor speak of me with tears,
but laugh and talk
Of me as if I were
beside you there.
(I'd come-I'd come,
could I but find a way!
But would not tears and grief
be barriers questioned?)
And when you hear a song
or see a bird
I loved, please do not let
the thought of me
be sad....for I am
loving you just as
I always have...
You were so good to me!
There were so many things
I wanted still
To do - so many things
to say to you...
Remember that I
did not fear... It was
Just leaving you
that was so hard to face...
We cannot see Beyond...
But this I know:
I loved you so - t'was heaven
here with you!

LORIMER, Myrtle I. (née MOORE)
On April 6 Myrtle I. LORIMER died in Coquitlam, British Columbia from a cancer that confined her to bed in her last weeks. She did not suffer unduly and maintained her wry sense of humour almost until the end. She assured us all many times that she had led a long and happy life.
Myrt was born May 20, 1912 in Regina to James Hamilton MOORE, blacksmith, and Annie (HUNTER) MOORE, seamstress. She is survived by her husband Wes, whom she married in 1940, her children James (publisher, Halifax), Rowland (professor, Vancouver) and Elizabeth (Betty; musician, Ottawa), her grandchildren Eric and MifAnne Lorimer BOLLMAN, Stefan, Conor, and Julia LORIMER and step-grandchildren Lynn MacGREGOR, Wendy MacGregor STORDY and Bill MacGREGOR, and her nephews and nieces. In her final years her nephew David BROWN and his wife, Marsha, were most kind and nurturing.
In early adulthood, Myrt acquired a specialist certificate for teaching kindergarten and began her professional career in Regina. However she was forced to give up teaching by a Regina School Board policy forbidding the employment of married women. She briefly returned to teaching kindergarten in Moose Jaw and then again in her 80s and 90s at Maple Leaf Estates in Florida, teaching music theory to seniors.
Myrtle and Wes moved their family to Winnipeg in 1949 and Myrt became active in many community organizations as a board member, board chair, and president. Her volunteer work included the Children's Home, the Fort Garry Library, the Winnipeg Library, and, perhaps her greatest love, the International Music Camp at the Peace Garden where she was involved for 45 years, many years as a board member, some as president. She was instrumental in establishing the Manitoba Committee, a group of nine Canadians who, with nine Americans, operate the music camp. She recognized as a Woman of Distinction in 1984 by the Winnipeg Young Women's Christian Association / Young Men's Christian Association, by the Mayor of Winnipeg for her service to the city, and by the International Music Camp.
We will remember Myrt's social grace and acumen, her sense of justice, her love of music and art, her avid card playing, her feistiness, her love, warmth, and conspiratorial delight, and her devotion to providing opportunities for her family and others.
A memorial service will be held Friday April 15 at 3: 00 pm at Saint John's College Chapel at the University of Manitoba. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the International Music Camp c/o #9 - 270 Roslyn Road, Winnipeg R3L 0H3, Crossroads Hospice, P.O. Box 1072, Coquitlam V3J 6Z4, or the Canadian Cancer Society.

Bob HUNTER, Evironmentalist And Writer: 1941-2005
In 1971, he was assigned to cover a story about a nuclear protest. Instead, he joined the group and co-founded Greenpeace
By Terry WEBER, With files from Canadian Press; staff; Globe and Mail archives, Tuesday, May 3, 2005, Page S9
He was a journalist, television personality, writer and political candidate but most of all he was a co-founder of Greenpeace, recognized by Time magazine as one of the 20th century's 10 top eco-heroes.
In 1971, while on assignment for the Vancouver Sun, he was invited to join a group taking a charter vessel to Alaska to protest nuclear testing that the U.S. began on Amchitka Island in the Aleutians in 1965. It had all started when Mr. HUNTER had attended a Sunday night meeting in a church basement, where he and a group of likeminded Friends decided, there and then, to save the environment and set up what he later laughingly called an organization. As he left the podium, having been elected president, he yelled out "Peace!" -- the mantra of the time -- and someone in the audience responded with the word green. "Let's make it a green peace," he yelled.
They scrounged up some money, bought an old broken-down fishing boat, renamed it the Rainbow Warrior and set off to the Aleutian Islands off Alaska to harass the mighty American military. They didn't get there in time, the boat being a very slow boat to anywhere, but the suspense devoured the front pages in British Columbia and eventually the whole country. Having been a reporter since he was 18, the venture was partly inspired by a quixotic desire to file a story datelined "Ground Zero."
"I thought I was going to be a reporter, taking notes," he once remarked. "In reality, I wound up on first watch."
He stayed for the 45-day duration of the voyage and subsequently helped shape the beginning of the Greenpeace Foundation in 1972. With the launch of the pro-environment activist group, he helped bring public attention not only to nuclear testing but to the excesses of whaling and seal hunting, as well as the dumping of toxic waste into the oceans.
His forays into the face of danger were the stuff of high adventure. The photographic record of Greenpeace encounters with Soviet or French ships on the open ocean are often fuzzy and taken at a distance. Apparently, one famous photo of a Russian harpoon parting the hair of a protester as he bobbed through the ocean swell in a flimsy inflatable boat showed the Greenpeace leader himself. "That's HUNTER," Gord PERKS of the Toronto Environmental Alliance told The Globe and Mail last year. Anywhere else, and Mr. HUNTER "would be revered as a national hero," he added.
Personal heroics, however, were not something Bob HUNTER chose to exploit. Only the mission was important. In a Globe and Mail report of the 1977 harpoon incident, he described the scene by telephone but had failed to put himself in it.
The encounter was vintage Greenpeace. Protesters aboard the James Bay, a former Canadian minesweeper, had succeeded in protecting sperm Wales for almost four hours by piloting their dinghies between the Wales and the harpooners. Finally, the Soviet boats had massed together and let loose their harpoons. At least one of the projectiles had passed low over the heads of protesters, whose dinghy was keeping pace with a whale only metres away.
Saving Wales lay at the heart of Mr. HUNTER's early work as an environmentalist. He was once moved to relate an incident that, to him, spoke volumes about the creatures. In July of 1975, lack of funds and an underpowered vessel had caused Greenpeace to abandon a campaign to disrupt whaling off the California coast. It turned out that their old fishing boat, the Phyllis Cormack, owned a top speed of nine knots, while the Russians they pursued were capable of 20 knots.
Even so, the protesters had somehow enjoyed great success -- but only because the Wales had come looking for Greenpeace. Inexplicably, something had caused the animals to turn and seek out the slower vessel.
"The Wales came right at our boat, and the chaser boat we were following had to change course," Mr. HUNTER later told reporters.
Eventually, Mr. HUNTER left to join the Sea Shepherd Society, which was seen as a sort of splinter group, but by then he had charted a definable course for Greenpeace. After all, it was he who adopted the term Rainbow Warriors to portray Greenpeace activists, as well as the phrase Media Mind Bomb to describe the activist impact on the public consciousness.
"I was the right person in the right place," the shaggy-haired, grey-bearded Mr. HUNTER once said of his pivotal role in Greenpeace. "But when it's done, I think you can get into a habit of just clinging to it because you don't know what to do next, whereas I knew all along, I wanted to get back to what I was doing already."
In truth, his contribution was far greater than that. Mr. HUNTER possessed a genius for communication. The language of dramatic imagery and gesture that Greenpeace pioneered grew directly from his analysis of the late communications guru Marshall McLuhan. "Tell me how many people you know who ever had an idea that good and made it happen." Bob HUNTER took the theory, applied it to environmentalism and and so changed the world.
"Bob was an inspirational storyteller, an audacious fighter and an unpretentious mystic," said John DOHERTY, chairman of Greenpeace Canada. "He was serious about saving the world, while always maintaining a sense of humour."
Being an environmentalist, he told an audience at the University of Toronto's Innis College in November, means always having to explain to your children why you're so angry. "We're doomed!" he shouted with gusto, his ponytail flying. "It's obvious that the world is going to hell in a hand basket, as usual."
For all his zeal as a self-described "apocalypticist," he was also capable of self-satire. "Save the three-legged purple salamander from southern Saskatoon!" he gleefully urged his audience, which included such luminaries as David Suzuki and Monte Hummel, president of World Wildlife Fund Canada. "I'm all for it.
"My God, the planet is being destroyed while I lie here on my waterbed; I must do something!"
Today, the organization has more than 2.5 million members with a presence in 40 countries. He left Greenpeace in 1981 and turned to writing and broadcasting to transmit his 'green' message. In 1991, he won the Governor-General's Award for literature for his book Occupied Canada: A Young White Man Discovers His Unsuspected Past. He was the author of more than a dozen books. Earlier, he had also written for the television shows The Beachcombers and Danger Bay.
In his most recent public role, he was the ecology news specialist for CHUM's CITY-TV and CP24 television channels. He was perhaps best known to Toronto viewers for Paper Cuts, a segment on the station's popular Breakfast Television show, in which he wore a bathrobe and commented on stories in the day's newspapers. Viewers also knew him as CITY-TV's environmental reporter and as host of Hunter's Gathers.
In 2001, he ran unsuccessfully for the Liberal Party for a by-election seat in the Ontario legislature and accused the New Democratic Party of employing slanderous techniques against him in the campaign.
In 1999, Mr. HUNTER had been diagnosed with cancer but refused to have surgery. He began years of treatment at a Mexican cancer clinic that specialized in non-conventional medical treatments.
In November, he told the University of Toronto audience that he was happy, despite his eco-gloom and his own ill health. Things were changing because people made a difference, he said. There was still hope for the three-legged salamander. "The only thing incurable about me," he confessed, "is my optimism."

I Remember -- Bob HUNTER
By Alison HOGAN- GARCIA, Tuesday, May 10, 2005, Page S9
Alison HOGAN- GARCIA, of Victoria, writes about Bob HUNTER, whose obituary appeared on May 3.
He was part of a circle of Friends I hung out with in the early 70s, drinking endless trays of draft beer at the Cecil Hotel in Vancouver long before it became a strip bar. The evenings I spent at that soggy, terry-cloth-covered table were interesting, to say the least. As a fledgling member of the eco-crowd, I had little to contribute, but as a listener and an observer, I always found the conversation fascinating, and it usually became more vociferous in direct relation to the amount of nasty beer consumed over the course of an evening.
Over the years I read his books, including Warriors of the Rainbow and Occupied Canada, which became a valuable resource for my undergraduate studies in Canadian history. Of all his books, though, it is 2030: Confronting Thermageddon in Our Lifetime, which got me right where I live. Ever since I finished it, I've been hauling around my own personal carbon cloud and can't seem to rid myself of the imagery Bob's powerful words created. I can only hope that more people will pick it up now that Bob is gone. It should be required reading for every high school student in the country.

HUTT, Milla Margaret (HUNTER)
By Joe FREEMAN, Friday, July 1, 2005, Page A14
Sister, aunt, homemaker. Born January 29, 1921, in Spencerville, Ontario. Died February 4, in Brockville, Ontario, of bladder cancer, aged 84.
Milla HUTT was simply known as "Aunt Milla" by three generations of the extended HUNTER family, and she perfectly fit the part of the doting aunt. Her home was spotless and there was always a homemade treat lovingly baked for anyone who dropped by. But underneath her warm, unassuming exterior there existed a spirit as solid as the stone farmhouse where she was born, the fourth of five children. With money in short supply, everyone was expected to pitch in with the housework and farm chores and not a penny was wasted on anything frivolous.
After graduating from the one-room school to which she walked miles each day, she eventually ended up in Brockville where she met Bill HUTT and the two were married in her parents' home in Uncle Bill was in the cartage business and they eventually saved enough money to buy their own truck. While Uncle Bill hauled cargo -- and more than occasionally brought home treasures that other people had decided were fit only for the dump -- Milla kept the books.
Uncle Bill loved the St. Lawrence river, so it was not a surprise when they purchased a tree- and rock-covered lot in 1944 at Fernbank, just west of Brockville. The resourceful pair found a golf course building that was being replaced and Uncle Bill carted it in two pieces to the lot. For the next 50-plus years they lived there between April and November and worked to turn the cottage, christened Island View, into the welcoming place it is today.
The winters were spent with relatives until they purchased a lot in Brockville on which to build their home. An old garage was hauled to the lot and was made livable by installing a wood stove and packing the walls with sawdust for insulation. It was a happy home where family and Friends gathered. Uncle Bill began building their house -- they did not believe in going into debt and finished it 10 years later.
The summers continued to be spent at the cottage, now a picture-perfect snapshot of lawn and gardens. A visit always included a ride in Little Suzie, the wooden cabin cruiser that was Uncle Bill's pride and joy, and a home-cooked meal. When I married into the family, Aunt Milla discovered I loved cooked beets. From my first visit onward, she always made sure she had beets from her garden on hand.
With no children of their own, the lives of their nieces and nephews -- and their offspring -- began to take on an increasing importance. Following the death of my mother-in-law (Milla's older sister Evelyn) shortly after the birth of our first child, Aunt Milla and Uncle Bill quietly stepped into the void and became like grandparents to our three sons.
After 55 years of marriage, Uncle Bill died in 1998, but Aunt Milla stayed in the house for a couple of years. She then moved into an apartment and could be seen walking all over Brockville when the weather was good.
Aunt Milla loved to shop: she knew what she wanted, where the best deals were and she was always armed with coupons. She always checked her bills carefully and she never hesitated to speak up when she thought she was treated improperly.
Going out for lunch was another activity that she enjoyed, as was her passion for puzzles. Christmas or her birthday rarely went by without someone giving her a new, challenging puzzle to tackle.
Her health began to fail last fall and she moved into a retirement home. She was not especially happy with her living situation, but she accepted it and made the best of it. It is her determination, her resourcefulness, her smile and her sparkling eyes that all of us who loved her will remember.
Joe is married to Milla's niece, Ruth.

'Eco-hero' HUNTER dead at 63
Seminal figure in global environmental movement
Respected author of 13 books had long career in television news
By Joseph HALL, Staff Reporter
The ice was cracking as the sealing boat bore down on Bob HUNTER and the cold green sea was bubbling up around his feet.
"I said, okay, when this ice goes, you jump to the right and I'll jump to the left," his friend and fellow environmental activist Paul WATSON recalls of that David and Goliath confrontation he shared with HUNTER off the Labrador coast back in 1976.
"But Bob said ' I'm not going anywhere.' And the damned boat stopped."
HUNTER, the Greenpeace co-founder who came into countless Toronto living rooms in his housecoat as a quirky commentator on Citytv's Breakfast Television, died yesterday after a long battle with prostate cancer. He was 63.
Described by Friends and colleagues as a congenial, funny, kind and fiercely brave rebel, HUNTER was a seminal figure in the global environmental movement. His Greenpeace work in the 1970s and 1980s helped achieve moratoriums on whaling and the Newfoundland seal hunt (since lifted) and a ban on nuclear testing in the Pacific.
It also ushered in a general global concern for the environment that had been largely absent before he and his "eco-warrior" comrades took the stage.
HUNTER was Citytv's environment reporter for 15 years, and also was also a founding contributor to the Toronto weekly eye and the author of 13 books.
Born in St. Boniface, Manitoba, October 13, 1941, HUNTER became "a child of the '60s" and dropped out of school for a career in writing.
He ended up at The Vancouver Sun, ultimately becoming the country's first counter-culture columnist before sailing aboard the Phyllis Cormack in late 1971 to demonstrate against U.S. nuclear tests on Amchitka Island off the coast of Alaska.
That trip precipitated the formation of the group that would become Greenpeace. He was the organization's original president and chairman and held the first membership card.
In the mid-'70s as the organization's president he didn't hesitate to take on those he deemed irresponsible.
In 1976, he took Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau to task for Canada's continuing export of nuclear technology to developing countries. He called the leader "one of the greatest living threats to the survival of the planet."
But by 1982 he had returned to his first love as a writer for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's The Beachcombers series and as a columnist for The North Shore News in Vancouver
"I was the right person in the right place," said HUNTER of his pivotal role in Greenpeace's dissident activities to halt the slaughter of whales.
"But when it's done, I think you can get into a habit of just clinging to it because you don't know what to do next, whereas I knew all along I wanted to get back to what I was doing already."
WATSON, however, says HUNTER's role in the success of Greenpeace cannot be overstated.
"There are a lot of us who could be called (Greenpeace) co-founders, but I would describe Bob as the founding father," he says.
"He was the one who picked it up when it was faltering in the early 1970s and made it what it is today. If not for Bob HUNTER, there would not be a Greenpeace Foundation today."
"Bob was one of a critical mass of environmental people with a media focus," says long-time friend Dan McDERMOTT, director of the Sierra Club of Canada's Ontario chapter.
"He had the vision to look across cultures and to use the media to move the message."
Confrontational stunts at sea became his Greenpeace trademark even as they literally put HUNTER's life on the line.
Indeed, many say it was the televised image of a harpoon flying over WATSON's head and into a whale he was trying to protect in the mid-'70s that brought environmentalism into the public eye.
Premier Dalton McGUINTY paid tribute to HUNTER, who ran for the Liberals in a 2001 by-election, finishing second to New Democrat Michael PRUE.
"Ontario and Canada have lost a very important citizen. Bob HUNTER was larger than life," McGUINTY said yesterday.
"Some people talk about saving the world. Bob HUNTER devoted his life to saving the world," he said.
In 2000, HUNTER was named one of Time magazine's eco-heroes of the century.
HUNTER died surrounded by his wife, Bobbi and his children Will, Emily, Conan and Justine, according to Citytv.
A memorial service will be announced shortly.

Friends bid activist farewell
Hundreds jam memorial service
'Hug this tree, for me. Love, Bob'
By Emily CHUNG, Staff Reporter
The Great Hall at the University of Toronto's Hart House was jammed yesterday with hundreds of people inspired by Bob HUNTER's conviction that one person can make a difference in the world.
The event was a memorial service for HUNTER, who died May 2 of prostate cancer but lived for 63 years before that as a journalist and world-renowned environmentalist who co-founded Greenpeace.
The service was attended by all ages. Some were pierced and dyed, others dressed neatly in black. Some wore expensive jewellery, some toted bike helmets.
"There's more trouble in this room than I've ever seen in one place," said HUNTER's friend Gord PERKS.
Trouble like Katrina MILLER of the Toronto Environmental Alliance, one of the many activists whose causes HUNTER publicized during his 15 years as an environment reporter with Citytv.
HUNTER awarded her a title for her work getting pesticides banned in Toronto that she wears proudly.
"There's something very special about Bob HUNTER calling you a Damn Fine Activist," MILLER said.
And there were dozens of fans like Bonnie and Kerre BRIGGS, long-time activists (mostly anti-poverty these days) who admired HUNTER but never met him.
"The Wales and the seals are really going to miss Bob," Bonnie said.
Kerre recalls that as a "schlubby, long-haired" 14-year-old, he started a petition to protest nuclear testing in Alaska the same week HUNTER co-founded Greenpeace. At the time, environmentalism was "a hippie thing of no great consequence," Kerre said, but HUNTER changed that. "He is my role model. He was my inspiration."
In the official program, letters were read from Prime Minister Paul MARTIN, environmentalist David SUZUKI and Toronto Mayor David MILLER. Friends and family, from HUNTER's wife Bobbi and Citytv boss Moses ZNAIMER to Premier Dalton McGUINTY and fellow activist Paul WATSON, shared memories in their eulogies that drew both laughter and tears.
As they followed a bagpiper's "Amazing Grace" out of the hall, people cradled tiny spruce saplings that had been laid out on the forest-green tablecloths for Friends to take home and plant. To each tree was attached a note that read, "Embrace your Friends, Love your family, Celebrate all life, And hug this tree, for me. Love, Bob."
Outside the doors, many paid tribute to HUNTER by continuing his work. A table solicited donations for a memorial environmental studies scholarship at the University of Toronto.
Greenpeace activists took the photos and signatures of supporters for a "virtual march" against whaling in Korea.
WATSON told the crowd that an activists' ship fuelled by alternative energy is getting ready to launch.
