'Devil's Brigade' veteran was a self-taught man
By Marissa NELSON, Free Press Reporter
It was like a scene out of a movie: a packed train station, soldiers in new uniforms waving feverishly as the train chugs away, their sweethearts left behind on the platform. Marie MANNING, who was just a little girl, says that's exactly how she remembers it the last time she saw her father until the end of the Second World War.
"My dad was a picture on the bedside table," the Tillsonburg woman said.
By the time he returned, he'd changed. The family had, too.
Her father, Robert MANNING, part of an elite unit nicknamed the Devil's Brigade by the Nazis, died January 27. It's believed he suffered a heart attack after shovelling snow. He was 87.
"He was always strong and fit," Marie MANNING said. "He was a big man to me, right from my childhood."
Robert MANNING's pre-war, carefree nature was replaced by a serious, disciplined one by the time he returned in 1945.
Perhaps it was not surprising, given what he had to do during the war -- something he only started talking about later in life.
The First Special Service Force was an elite unit of Canadian and U. S. soldiers. They were trained to parachute behind enemy lines, scale mountains and take on near-impossible tasks -- considered by some as suicide missions.
"They were trained to think their life was insignificant. Fear became the challenge," Marie MANNING said.
The unit arrived in Italy in November 1943 and their first task was to get Germans off two high peaks -- Monte la Difensa and Monte la Remetanea.
The Devil's Brigade scrambled up ropes in dense fog to scale Difensa. They took Monte la Remetanea after a six-day battle.
Secretly surging ahead of troops, unit members had to kill those who saw them to keep their presence secret.
MANNING was lost for a year in Italy after being shot. By then, his family had given up hope.
Meanwhile, MANNING's wife, Isabella, had to go to work. Marie was sent to live with her grandparents and her brother was sent to foster parents.
In 1945, the family was thrown back together.
"It took years for him to lose the edge," Marie recalled. "He would scream in the night. He fought his war for a long, long time."
Fellow veteran and longtime friend Harvey KING remembers MANNING as a serious man.
"If he put his mind to something, he could do it," KING said. "He read everything he could. He was a self-taught man."
MANNING built homes in Tillsonburg and ran an elderberry farm.
"He was very shrewd -- we always said he had the first dollar he made," his daughter said.
What troubles Marie MANNING is that neither her father nor his unit got the recognition she believes they deserved. "Two countries came together to fight for freedom," she said. "I feel a big loss and a little bit of anger."

A full life with you we'll never know,
Your picture upon our shelf.
A precious little jewel in our hands,
A love so deep and rich in our heart.
The words "baby girl" on your hospital bands,
A life so short, barely a chance to start.
We love you and miss you very much.
Your Grandparents, Will and Paula.

ROY, Napolean (KING)
The entire Canadian farming and agribusiness community is mourning the loss of one of its best-known members. Napoleon ROY (KING,) 93, a pioneer in hybrid seed production, died Monday, May 16, 2005. Roy put Dover Township on the world map with his varied agribusiness ventures over nearly a century. They included establishment of the highly-successful King Grain Company, which provided employment for hundreds of Pain Court and Chatham-Kent area residents. The life-long Pain Court resident received numerous honours throughout his life. He was inducted into the Kent County Agricultural Hall of Fame in 1989, a year after receiving a Ministry of Agriculture and Food Centennial Award. Roy became an honourary life member of the Canadian Seed Trade Association in 1982. He was named Agriculturalist of the Year in 1978 by the Chatham and District Chamber of Commerce and received a Queen's Medal in 1977. Roy was recognized by the Quebec government in 1971 for outstanding service to the development of grain corn in that province and was later given an honourary life membership in the Canadian Seed Growers' Association. In 1975, Roy was presented with an Ontario Agricultural College Centennial Medal from the Ontario Agricultural College in Guelph for his contributions to the world of agriculture. In addition to being among the first to produce hybrid seed corn in Canada, Roy introduced the Pride Brand to Canada and marketed seed corn across Canada and the United States and developed good marketing ventures in France and Chile. The King organization was responsible for establishing a corn milling facility in Chatham. He promoted the sale of Canadian soybeans in Pacific Rim countries, farmed on Walpole and Saint Anne's Islands in the St. Clair River and is credited with promoting the use of certified seed and herbicides in Quebec. Roy is a past-president of the Chatham and District Chamber of Commerce, a former Rotarian and a Paul Harris Fellow, past-chairman of the St. Joseph's Hospital Advisory Board, a founding member of the St. Vincent de Paul Society and pastpresident of the Immaculate Conception Church Parish Council. He was once described by life-long friend, Joseph RICHER, as a "man with a dream and a mission. His dream - agriculture, his mission - a burning desire to be the best." RICHER said Roy had all of the qualities of a leader - a religious man with faith in himself, possessed confidence in himself and instilled it in those around him.
Roy was born in 1912 in Pain Court, the oldest in a family of 9 children. His parents were the late Henri ROY and the former Anna PINSONNEAULT. Roy's first wife, Pauline CARON, died in 1948. He is survived by his wife, Marguerite BRULE, 9 children, 15 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren and 7 sisters. Predeceased by a brother, 2 brothers-in-law: and a sister-in-law. Resting at the Hinnegan-Peseski Funeral Home, 156 William St. S., Chatham from 2-4 p.m. and 6: 30-9 p.m. on Thursday, May 19, 2005. Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated in Immaculate Conception Church in Pain Court on Friday, May 20, 2005 at 11 a.m. Parish prayers will be offered in the funeral home on Thursday at 3 p.m. followed by Le Club de L'Amitie prayers.

Papa, we wished upon a star last night
We doubt it will come true
We asked God to let us have you back
For just an hour or two.
Although we cannot see you now
We know just where you are
By day, you are our sunshine
By night, our brightest star.
You are our guardian angel
This we know is true
And we know you are watching over us
In everything we do.
So today we reach to Heaven
And blow a gentle kiss
To a very special Papa
Who well always love and miss.
We love and miss you a lot Papa!
Love, Kristopher, Daniel, Aidan, Arianna, Noah and Caitlyn.

Police hunt shooter after woman killed
By Tracy McLAUGHLIN, Saturday, October 15, 2005
April Lynn DOBSON believed in living for today.
“She was the most happy-go-lucky person you would ever want to meet,” said DOBSON's roommate Kelly KING. “She always said, ‘Life is too short, enjoy it while you can.' I can't for the life of me think of why anyone in this world would want to hurt her.&rdquo
DOBSON was shot to death early Friday on the front porch of a Browning Trail home.
Neighbours were jarred awake by the sound of a gunshot at about 12: 30 a.m. and seconds later found DOBSON, 40, of Barrie, on her back, bleeding to death.
Police are looking for a male, 15 to 18 years old who was seen by one witness racing from the scene on a brown mountain bike.
“He is a person of serious interest,” said Barrie Police Sgt. Dave GOODBRAND as he stood on the street, which was blocked off with yellow tape while police officers climbed on rooftops and combed the area for clues.
“We do believe this was not a random shooting and the public is not in danger,” he said.
A witness, who asked not to be named, said he saw the teen get off of his bike, cut across the yard to where the woman was.
“Then I heard a gunshot and I saw him get on his bike and take off,” he said.
Police say they don't know if the teen was the shooter or a witness to the shooting. One neighbour who tried to revive the woman said he jolted out of bed when he heard the shot. “We wanted to keep her alive, but her eyes were wide open. She had that dead look and we gave up.&rdquo
DOBSON worked as a waitress, but was off with a knee injury.
“She loved to be the life of the party -- she would tell the same old jokes,” said KING with a gentle laugh.
“This just doesn't make sense.&rdquo

Lynn KING, Jurist: 1944-2005
A partner in the first all-female law firm in Toronto, she became a highly respected provincial court judge who brought a human touch to her family law courtroom, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Tuesday, March 22, 2005, Page S9
The law was as familiar as family for Madam Justice Lynn KING. Her father, her uncle and her aunt were all judges. And yet there was nothing traditional about her approach to the law, either as a lawyer or as a judge.
"She was completely fearless. She didn't care what anybody thought, which is a great strength in a judge," said Mr. Justice Brent KNAZAN of the Ontario Provincial Court. As an illustration, he referred to her 1991 judgment when she ruled that keeping young offenders in overcrowded and filthy holding cells without adequate access to counsel constituted cruel and unusual treatment and violated the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
"She took a personal interest in every kid who stood up in front of her," said Mr. Justice Brian WEAGANT of the Ontario Provincial Court, who had appeared before her many times as a defence counsel. She was in the vanguard of pushing for easy access to expert representation, he said. After Judge WEAGANT was appointed to the bench, he found her extremely supportive as a colleague.
"Lynn had the ability to make every person in her courtroom feel like a human being," said Madam Justice Harriet SACHS of the Ontario Provincial Court. She described how Judge KING, her former law partner and friend, created an atmosphere -- especially in youth court -- in which teenagers felt she was seeing them as people rather than as young offenders.
Judge KING, she said, was a leader both as a lawyer and as a judge, and intuitively understood what was just. "She had the intellectual capacity to reason her way, but she also had such an instinct for justice."
"She was very kind, extremely generous and very fair -- everything I try to be," said Judge KING's older son, Jonah, 22, a student at Trent University in Peterborough. "She didn't have a biased bone in her body."
Lynn KING grew up on the shores of Ramsay Lake in Sudbury, one of three children of Harry and Madelaine WAISBERG. There's a story Judge KING loved to tell about how, as a child, she showed up at school in the depths of winter without a hat or mittens. An outraged teacher called her mother demanding to know how Mrs. WAISBERG could let her daughter leave the house without winter clothing. "Wait until you get to know Lynn," her mother replied calmly.
In 1961, in her final year of high school, her parents sent her to board at Toronto's Branksome Hall, where she met her lifelong friend Wendy WRIGHT, now an assignment editor at CTV News. "We were the only two Jewish girls in residence," Ms. WRIGHT recalled yesterday. "We didn't look at all alike, but they kept getting us confused and, to this day, we still giggle about whether they could see past our religion."
Describing her friend as a very giving woman, Ms. WRIGHT said "her sense of humour was what was so thrilling and the ray of light that got me through that year. She was brilliant in high school; she had insight beyond her years and a sense of social responsibility that was clearly developed by then."
Judge KING then went to the University of Toronto, where she earned a degree in economics, followed by a master's degree from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts., and then back to the University of Toronto for a law degree. She was called to the bar in 1973, in the incremental wave of women that began receiving law degrees in Canada. A committed social activist, she began practising with Paul COPELAND and her then husband, Greg KING, in a small law office in midtown Toronto. "She was a progressive person with a heart of gold who did a nice job for her clients," said Mr. COPELAND, mentioning that Judge KING mainly did matrimonial work when she was his law partner.
After her marriage broke up, she left Copeland King and taught at Osgoode Hall for a year before joining lawyers Mary CORNISH and Harriet SACHS to form Cornish King and Sachs in 1976, the first all-female law firm in Toronto.
"I prefer to control my own work, to choose my partners and clients, to focus on women's issues," she told journalist Judy STEED in a 1980 article on women lawyers. Ms. CORNISH said: "She was very active in using the law as an instrument of social change, and she did it in a number of different ways as a lawyer and a judge, especially around gender issues in terms of family law and, ultimately, youth justice."
Judge SACHS added: "She had an enormous capacity for empathy and it never compromised her ability to see the essence of a situation."
In 1980, Lynn KING wrote What Every Woman Should Know About Marriage, Separation and Divorce, a guide written from a woman's point of view that focused on the financial, legal and business side of marriage. In 1986, she co-authored Women Against Censorship.
She met her second husband, writer M.T. (Terry) KELLY, in 1979. At the time, he was writing a relationship column for The Globe and he went to her law office to interview her about the acrimony that seems so inevitable a part of divorce. "She wouldn't go out with me for a year," he said yesterday. They met again at a party and he was "just enchanted" because she was "so beautiful and elegant and smart."
An unlikely couple in some ways -- she a legal expert and an urbanite, he a writer and an aspiring canoeist -- they meshed their different lifestyles and interests in a loving partnership that lasted for nearly 25 years. "I found her very sensitive and all the things a lawyer has to be -- and a very different kind of mind from mine."
After working as a lawyer for 13 years, she was appointed a provincial court judge at 41 by then Ontario attorney-general Ian SCOTT in David PETERSON's Liberal government. Journalist June CALLWOOD described Ms. KING "grinning with delight and nervousness" on her first day on the bench in an 1986 article for The Globe.
As a lawyer, she had successfully argued before the Ontario Supreme Court that the province's censorship law was unconstitutional. Despite that high profile, she welcomed the appointment to the bench. "A lawyer presents only one side of the case," she told Ms. CALLWOOD. " The judge can't be so cavalier. A judge is required to be sensible and responsible, but a judge is also able to be creative. I wanted to be able to make the decisions that I used to wish judges would make."
She delighted in gossip and loved to party, and she had a passion for crossword puzzles and matchmaking, frequently trying to fix people up, even those who were already committed to other partners. "Nobody minded because she was so engaging and funny," said Judge SACHS.
"She was one of these mothers who loved her kids for who they were," continued Judge SACHS. " She didn't want them to be little replicas of her, but she was always in their corner. She respected them as people and she was endlessly delighted by them."
Judge KING was diagnosed with breast cancer in November of 1999. She continued to work around treatment as the disease went into remission and then metastasized. She went on disability late in 2004 and made her last public appearance at a Boxing Day party, appearing frail but elegant in a black velvet dress. In her final days, her husband said, she watched both soap operas and the televised proceedings of the Gomery inquiry into the federal sponsorship scandal. She died at home in his arms.
Lynn KING was born on April 19, 1944, in Sudbury, Ontario She died on Friday of breast cancer at home in Toronto. She was 60. She is survived by her husband, M.T. (Terry) KELLY, her sons Jonah and Max, her mother, two siblings and their families. The funeral is today at Mount Pleasant Cemetery Chapel in Toronto.

MULAK, Konrad
It is with immense sorrow that the family announces the sudden death of Konrad on March 29th, 2005.
Devoted husband of Suzanne KING and loving and proud father of Hanna and Stefan, beloved son to Jadwiga MULAK and cherished brother to Kristina and Alicia. Remembered with great affection by relatives by marriage and many nieces and nephews.
Konrad was larger than life in many ways and his love of travel, cuisine, adventure, photography, and sports (particularly the All Blacks) are well known to family and Friends.
As Vice President of Corporate Visuals Inc., Konrad's business intellect and keen understanding of marketing and design resulted in award-winning and ground breaking design for clients with the largest companies in Canada.
To know Konrad was to know his spirit, and he would be happy in the knowledge that those of us lucky enough to have crossed his path will remember him as a unique man of character, caring, humour and strength. Konrad's spirit now stretches from the peaks of Switzerland to the South Pacific shores of Raratonga, where he and Suzanne explored the world together.
One of Konrad's favourite books is titled "The Right Mountain" and details lessons from mountain climbing and the real meaning of success. A passage in this book perfectly describes Konrad's outlook on life:
"It is as important here, as it is on the mountain, to know your core values. Core values have been my yardstick, my template as I make decisions in my life."
Family and Friends are invited to a memorial service on Friday April 8th, 1: 00 pm, at Yorkminster Park Baptist Church, 1585 Yonge Street (corner of Yonge and Heath Street East, just north of St. Clair.)
If desired, in lieu of flowers, donations in Konrad's memory may be made to the charity of your choice.

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.

Evelyn HORNE, Civil Servant and Volunteer: 1907-2005
Ottawa secretary worked for Mackenzie KING and was acquainted with a succession of prime ministers. From her vantage point at the centre of power, she saw everything and knew everyone
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Tuesday, May 17, 2005 Page S9
Ottawa -- Everyone came to see Evelyn HORNE to pick her brains on people and policy, including Jean CHRÉTIEN. She spent 30 years at the centre of political power. Starting with Mackenzie KING, Miss HORNE knew five prime ministers in a row, including Louis SSAINTURENT, John DIEFENBAKER, Lester PEARSON and Pierre TRUDEAU.
From 1941 to 1973, Miss HORNE perched just off centre stage as a perceptive spectator of some of the most tumultuous events in recent Canadian history -- from the anxious years of the Second World War to the new welfare state that came later. Surrounded by statesmen, politicians, governors-general and civil servants, Miss HORNE knew practically all of them, many on a first-name basis.
"She told me that she knew CHRÉTIEN when he was a young pup who came and sat on the corner of her desk and talked politics," said her nephew, Robert PIKE of Ottawa.
Other Ottawa mandarins who valued Miss HORNE for her administrative skills during the '40s and '50s included Prime Minister Paul MARTIN's father, Paul MARTIN Sr., Jack PICKERSGILL and C.D. HOWE.
For all that, Miss HORNE never forgot the years she spent working for Mackenzie KING. Getting that job was a "case of being in the right place at the right time and knowing the right people though I would be selling myself short if I didn't admit that I had some native intelligence and was willing to go the second mile into overtime when it was necessary," she said in 1997.
Miss HORNE first attracted Mr. King's attention when, as a provincial civil servant, she was secretary of the committee organizing the Nova Scotia segment of the 1939 visit to Canada of King George Virgin Islands and Queen Elizabeth.
"When Mr. KING asked to meet me during his tour of East Coast defences in the fall of 1940, I knew I was to be interviewed for a job. And what an interview! Presumably, someone had told him that I could write a fairly good letter; he asked me nothing about my work capabilities," said Miss HORNE.
Instead, Mr. KING quizzed her about the architectural features of the room they were sitting in at Nova Scotia's Province House, Canada's oldest seat of government. "[It was] the most perfect example of Adam architecture in North America. He asked me to explain the symbolism of the bas-relief around the fireplace and recount the history behind the life-size portraits of kings and queens that adorned the walls," she said.
Fortunately, Miss HORNE knew all the answers and found herself in Ottawa in January of 1941. "My first reaction was disappointment. I found the city dull and boring -- after Halifax. There was no immediate awareness that there was a war on. And I was very disappointed in [my new] job. I was assigned to do the 'routine correspondence.' "
It was so simple and repetitive, she was "bored to tears. When I could stand it no longer, I complained to the boss -- not Mr. KING, of course, but [to his] principal secretary. I said I wanted to go back home. The work was too easy -- there was no challenge I didn't have enough to do. As a result, I was given the responsibility for the whole of the Prime Minister's correspondence."
That task was not without its lighter moments, Miss HORNE told her niece, Frances PIKE. " One day, she reached an envelope addressed 'To the Biggest Prick in Canada.' There was nothing inside except an unused condom. 'Mr. PICKERSGILL,' she said, 'what do I do with this'? He said, 'Miss HORNE, I'll take care of it. As far as the contents are concerned, you may do with it what you will.'"
Although Miss HORNE rarely saw Mr. KING during the war, the Prime Minister's Office "was an exciting place to be, right at the heart of government, during those increasingly intense years of war. There were so many pressing concerns, and all kinds of people wrote to the Prime Minister about all kinds of problems. I had to find the answers, or find the people who could.
"I learned so much, not only about government, but also about the people of this country, who showed so much courage, stoicism, and forbearance in the face of all the tragedy and the hardships that affected us all during those terrible years."
In 1946, Miss HORNE moved from the East Block to Laurier House, Mr. KING's home, where she handled his personal correspondence and did some speechwriting. "I became acquainted with [him] as a person, and I liked him."
In 1950, Miss HORNE struck an early blow for women's rights after she went to work for the assistant private secretary to Robert WINTERS, then minister of reconstruction and supply. Despite all her experience, Mr. WINTERS "wouldn't take her on trips because he thought that was unseemly. So he hired a man, whom she had to train. He was hopeless, but making more money than her," said Mr. PIKE, the nephew.
When Miss HORNE complained to her boss that she should be earning as much as the new man, he retorted that he saw no reason for a raise -- she was making excellent money "for a woman."
"So she packed up and went home," said Mr. PIKE. " Then she called Jack PICKERSGILL, who told her to sit tight for a few days and he'd see what he could do. Very soon after, she went to work for Ellen FAIRCLOUGH at the Department of Citizenship and Immigration."
Miss HORNE finished her career with the federal government in 1973 when she retired from the National Film Board. Awarded the Coronation Medal in 1953 and the Centennial Medal in 1967, she received a Governor-General's Caring Canadian Award in 2004 for her years spent as a volunteer.
Miss HORNE first started volunteering during the First World War, when she knitted scarves for the troops. "I distinctly remember the outbreak of the war in 1914, and I recall many occasions when I went to the train station in Truro with my mother to meet the troop trains to present gifts of food and cigarettes and warm knitted items."
When the Second World War broke out in 1939, Miss HORNE's volunteering became a "way of life. I worked as a check-girl for the weekly dances at the famous North End Services Canteen, and playing the odd game of snooker with the boys who didn't feel like dancing. Many times, I would best serve by lending a sympathetic ear or looking at pictures of sweethearts or wives and children back home."
Life in Halifax during the war was grim, she recounted. "The most vulnerable spot in all of Canada, the city was actually at war and everyone pitched in to help. I can laughingly say that my war work was entertaining and being entertained by the officers of the great battleships that anchored in Halifax harbour. We had a lively social life.
"But the shadow of war was always close at hand; and more than once, men I had danced with one night were brought back two days later, burned beyond recognition when their ship was torpedoed by German U-boats just beyond the harbour headlands. Volunteer visits to Camp Hill, the [military] hospital, were a high priority for me at that time."
Evelyn Annie Ethel HORNE was born on February 23, 1907, in Truro, Nova Scotia She died of heart failure on March 21, 2005, in Ottawa. She was 98. She leaves her niece, Frances; nephews Robert, David, Peter and Donald; 16 great-nieces; and 11 great-great-nieces and nephews.

GRAY/GREY, Alice -- Dispatch:
By Oliver MOORE, Saturday, June 18, 2005, Page M4
Alice GRAY/GREY continued to celebrate the milestones of her marriage even after her husband died in 2000. "On their anniversary, I would take her over to Mount Pleasant cemetery for a picnic, with pâté and wine -- no, sherry -- and they could be together," says daughter Gretchen DAY.
Ms. GRAY/GREY and her husband, Aubrey, had a relationship progressive beyond its era. They split domestic duties and at no time did he see himself as the boss of the household, son Paul GRAY/GREY says. It was "a 50-50 marriage."
The couple met while attending Jarvis Collegiate Institute and, after drifting apart for several years, reconnected and married immediately before he shipped out to war in 1942.
On paper, they were not well suited: He was the sixth child of an Anglican family from Rosedale, and she was a Methodist proud of her ancestors' role in the abortive rebellion led by William Lyon Mackenzie KING.
But their differences didn't stop a strong marriage from developing, the children say. Both parents were teachers -- Ms. GRAY/GREY becoming the first female history department head in Toronto -- and both their children ultimately followed in their footsteps.
They describe their mother as being full of vitality. She was a very devoted Torontonian despite having moved to Etobicoke back when it was still a rural property, living near where Cloverdale Mall is now.
Ms. GRAY/GREY had a stubborn streak that showed in her determination to avoid being put in a home. She never forgave her doctor for insisting that she stop driving. Although she was increasingly frail, her mind remained sharp to the end and she set the goal of reaching her 90th birthday on May 11.
"We smuggled in gin and tonic and I bought her a new outfit and we brought her champagne," Ms. DAY says. "We rolled her up in a blanket and got her outside so she could have a cigarette."
She died of unknown causes on May 25.

James KENNY, Royal Air Force Pilot and Businessman 1922-2005
Flying Typhoon ground-attack aircraft, he was shot down over Normandy but not before he brought home the beer
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Tuesday, August 2, 2005, Page S7
Ottawa -- Fighting a war is thirsty business, so when the pilots of the Royal Air Force's 181 Squadron decided they'd been without beer for long enough, they sent Canadian James KENNY back to England to do something about it.
Taking off from Coulomb, France, in his Hawker Typhoon IB fighter-bomber on July 4, 1944, Mr. KENNY viewed his assignment with pleasure. Not only would the mission entail a brief break from fighting the Germans over Normandy, he'd also enjoy a night out in London.
Where to store the beer was a problem, though, since the powerful single-engine Typhoon, which was the Royal Air Force's most important tactical air-support aircraft of the Second World War, was built to fight, not carry bottles of beer. "Finally, a solution was found... Take out two cannons to make room for beer and leave two cannons to defend the valuable freight," Mr. KENNY wrote in 1998.
After landing at Oatlands Hill in England, he stored as much beer as he could in his aircraft's wings, behind the cockpit and anywhere else he could find. In all, he managed to hide away eight dozen pints.
His next stop was Redhill air base near London but while approaching the airfield in the dusk, he noticed a small aircraft to starboard. "[It was] a buzz bomb, a V-1, and the first I had ever seen."
A series of conflicting emotions tore through him. What should he do, attack the V-1 or ignore it and so preserve his precious cargo? "Must shoot it down?" he later wrote. "No, it will break all the bottles. Duty says I must... The Squadron will hate me."
Suddenly, the V-1 engine cut out, solving his dilemma. The pilot-less rocket fell to earth, letting Mr. KENNY and his beer off the hook. After a night in London, he returned to a hero's welcome.
James KENNY had joined the Royal Canadian Air Force from McGill University in Montreal in 1941. After pilot training at bases all over the country, he was awarded his wings by prime minister Mackenzie KING on October 23, 1942. Mr. KENNY's brother, Robert, also received his wings then.
Arriving in Britain in early 1943, Mr. KENNY, who had acquired the nickname Slim because of his six-feet-four-inch height, spent some time flying Spitfires and Hurricanes before being posted to No. 181 Squadron in November. In fact, he was assigned to a Typhoon squadron because he was too tall to fit comfortably in a Spitfire.
The "Tiffie" was a formidable aircraft. It first flew in 1940 as an interceptor before the Royal Air Force realized its 700 km/h speed and ability to carry a powerful armament made it perfect for attacking ground targets such as bridges, tanks, trains and rail junctions. By D-Day on June 6, 1944, the Royal Air Force boasted 26 Typhoon squadrons. Required to fly low, the Typhoons suffered fierce anti-aircraft fire and many were shot down.
Over the seven months he spent in action, Slim KENNY successfully flew dozens of dangerous sorties until, in late July of 1944, his luck finally ran out. With three other pilots, he attacked a German convoy and ran into heavy return fire. Despite suffering serious damage to his aircraft, he sprayed the targets with rockets and cannon fire.
"Flak very bad," he later wrote in his log book. "Hit behind cockpit before attack - hit on starboard wing on way in - large hole in gas tank - on fire - several pieces of flak in legs - hit in engine after attack - engine on fire - aileron jammed - aircraft rolling to starboard - Bailed Out."
Floating through the air under his parachute, Mr. KENNY was relieved he was alive. "My second thought, 'My gosh, I'm at tree top level, about 30 or 40 feet, better prepare for landing, and my third thought, there are soldiers behind every tree, are they American?" he wrote.
Unfortunately, they were German. Once on the ground, he realized that he was "hurting several places, one of which was where I kept the family jewels. I got to my feet and unbuckled [my] parachute, undid my belt, unbuttoned my fly, took down my underwear and had a look.
"The Germans watched this performance with some surprise and surrounded me with a lot less hostility. I believe that the crucial moment when one might shoot [me] was dissipated by the circumstances. After all, at that moment I hardly appeared to be a threat."

Richard LEITERMAN, Cinematographer: (1935-2005)
In 1969, the pioneer of cinéma vérité was among the first to use a technique that today's television viewers know as reality television
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail; Globe and Mail archives, Tuesday, September 27, 2005, Page S11
The cinematographer Richard LEITERMAN -- best known for his work in such films as Goin' Down the Road and A Married Couple -- was told by a teacher early in his career that he might have been born holding a camera.
Mr. LEITERMAN first picked up a camera because his then brother-in-law, filmmaker Allan KING, was making documentaries. Working in film seemed a lot more fun to Mr. LEITERMAN than the assortment of odd jobs -- from a forklift operator to a dish washer -- he had done for money since dropping out of university. He asked Mr. KING if he could get a job hauling gear around, but was told to learn how to use a camera instead. Later on, he referred to Mr. KING as his mentor and as someone who "took me in when I was very, very green."
As a pioneer in cinéma vérité filmmaking, Mr. LEITERMAN's work with Mr. KING created some landmark, low-budget documentaries, including A Married Couple (1969), a raw and at times disturbing look inside the strained marriage of an ordinary Toronto couple.
"He had a great relationship not only with people but with machines," said filmmaker Don SHEBIB, whose first feature film was Goin' Down the Road, a 1970 low-budget movie about Maritimers down and out in Toronto which has become a Canadian classic. "The machine was so close to him. I don't have the same relationship with the camera as he did. He played it like a violin and always did."
By the end of his career, his work had become a barometer against which the development of Canadian film Could be measured. In their 1978 book, Richard Leiterman, Alison Reid and P.M. Evanchuk wrote that his career "has been so closely involved with the mainstream of Canadian filmmaking that his work is practically illustrative of its trends, its tendency towards fiction film with a solid base in the documentary tradition."
Born near a small mining community near Timmins, Ontario, Mr. LEITERMAN was the youngest of six children. Raised in a strict Christian household, his father Douglas worked as a bookkeeper at the local mine. As a young boy, the family moved to Vancouver.
Initially, Mr. LEITERMAN studied engineering at the University of British Columbia. The move was in response to his talented and artistic older siblings, who all went into the arts and intimidated him. He soon learned that engineering wasn't for him and dropped out. He headed to Europe where he worked in restaurant kitchens, drove trucks in Germany, sailed charter yachts on the Mediterranean and served coffee in trendy cafes. It was at one such coffee shop in London where he met his future wife, Margaret. They married in 1960 after returning to Vancouver.
At the suggestion of Mr. KING, Mr. LEITERMAN enrolled in a summer course in camera technique at the University of British Columbia when he was in his early twenties. He jokingly referred to the course as "Be Your Own Film Director in Six Easy Weekends." His instructor, Stanley Fox, would later remark that Mr. LEITERMAN, while still a beginner, "held the camera as though it had been in his hands his whole life."
After taking the summer course, Mr. LEITERMAN bought a Bell and Howell 16 mm camera, shot some footage of a storm and sold it to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation News in Vancouver for $35. Now a professional, he and his wife returned to London and he worked as a news stringer for various networks. Soon after he went into partnership with Mr. KING, helping form Allan King Associates, in 1962.
The documentaries Mr. LEITERMAN and Mr. KING made together took them from the Arctic Circle to the civil rights marches in Mississippi and Alabama and through war-ravaged Vietnam. In the late 1960s, he followed anthropologist Margaret Mead through New Guinea and American writer Norman Mailer at a protest march on the Pentagon.
"Richard is not as splashy or spectacular as most cameramen who work with the hand-held camera, but he's incredibly secure with what he sees and responds to. He has unique vision and great integrity," Mr. KING once said of Mr. LEITERMAN's techniques and style. "He never grabs at a subject; he doesn't push but responds to what's happening in front of the camera, with the result that he gets more respect from his subjects than anyone I know. If there was a shot I had to get, I'd give it to Richard."
At the end of the decade, Mr. LEITERMAN threw himself into another Allan KING project, A Married Couple. It was an early example of what television viewers today think of as reality television. The couple was Billy and Antoinette EDWARDS of Toronto. A camera crew visited their Rushton Road house for about 10 weeks and recorded their conversations, their ferocious arguments, and their moments of tenderness.
Mr. LEITERMAN told Billy and Antoinette: "Don't recognize us, don't give us a cup of coffee in the morning. We won't tell you when we're coming. We won't say goodbye when we leave."
He installed light brackets on the walls and put photo floodlights in the table lamps. Then he and Chris WANGLER, the soundman, showed up with their equipment. And waited for something to happen.
The film, whose obscene language created trouble with Ontario film Censors, was a hit. Clive Barnes in The New York Times called it "quite simply one of the greatest films I've ever seen."
Many thought it opened a new period in documentary film; it was shown at festivals and much discussed. In the United States, it was imitated by the producers of An American Family, which ran in the 1972-73 season and became perhaps the most popular series ever made for PBS. Mr. LEITERMAN's hand-held, swish-pan style was eventually adopted by fiction films, including Woody Allen's Husbands and Wives.
That same year, Mr. SHEBIB, then a young Toronto director asked Mr. LEITERMAN if he'd like to shoot a low-budget movie about Maritimers down on their luck in Toronto. Having agreed to be part of the three-man crew, Mr. LEITERMAN brought his documentary eye to fiction filmmaking with Goin' Down the Road. During the filming, he says he learned "a hell of a lot" about transition, priorities and collaboration.
"It was a learning experience for both of us," he told an interviewer, referring to himself and Mr. SHEBIB. "We shot it with minimal lighting, we shot it at 16. We would look around and see what there was in the script and see what the weather was like. Sometimes there was just nothing to shoot, and we'd say to the two lead actors, 'Okay guys, go out and do something. It's snowing, the sun is shining, it's a beautiful afternoon, let's do something.' So they'd go out and have a snowball fight. It's what the characters would have done. They would have said, "To hell with job hunting, we'll go for a walk in Edwards Gardens and throw snowballs at each other." Mr. LEITERMAN and Mr. SHEBIB went on to collaborate on several more features and documentaries including Rip-Off (1971) and Between Friends (1973). Along with making films, a concern with labour practices within the industry led Mr. LEITERMAN to help organize the Canadian cameramen's union. When he wasn't working, Mr. LEITERMAN loved to sail on his eight-metre boat. Every summer he would take a 10-day solo trip to B.C.'s Desolation Sound. But sailing wasn't limited to summertime. He was also known to take his boat out in the midst of a winter storm. "He was a person who lived on the edge," said his widow Margaret LEITERMAN.
Mr. LEITERMAN won a Canadian Film Award for Cinematography for his work on Joyce Wieland's The Far Shore (1975) and a Genie Award for Best Cinematography for Mr. KING's Silence of the North (1981). In 2000, he received the Kodak New Century Award for outstanding contribution to the art of cinematography, from the Canadian Society of Cinematographers. Recently, Mr. LEITERMAN shot movies for television, directed episodes of the Vancouver-shot series Cold Squad and taught cinematography at Sheridan College in Toronto. By all accounts, he had a reputation for demanding the best of his students.
"If you are going to carry on in this business, then the most important thing is to keep the faith," he liked to say. "Be passionate."
Richard LEITERMAN was born on April 7, 1935, in South Porcupine, Ontario, and died in Vancouver on July 14, 2005. He was 70.
Cause of death was complications from the rare disease amyloidosis, in which the body's organ systems accumulate deposits of abnormal proteins. He was diagnosed in December and spent the last few weeks of his life confined to a wheelchair.
He is survived by his wife Margaret, son Mark, daughter Rachel, granddaughter Clara and siblings Elaine, Phyllis, Catherine and Douglas, also a filmmaker.
His ashes were scattered in the Pacific Ocean.

Beland HONDERICH, Newspaper Publisher (1918-2005)
Micromanager changed the Toronto Star from a scoop-an-edition news sheet into an information-based vehicle for an emerging middle class, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Wednesday, November 9, 2005, Page S9
An outsider who joined the Toronto Star as a "wartime replacement," Beland (Bee) HONDERICH worked his way up through the newsroom to become editor, publisher and ultimately chairman of the board of the country's largest and most colourful city newspaper. Its archives can boast staff bylines belonging to Ernest Hemingway (he likened it to "serving in the Prussian army under a bad general"), Pierre Berton, Gordon Sinclair and Peter Newman.
A micromanager and a curmudgeon who was feared more than he was loved, he transformed and modernized the Star, built a legendary newsroom in the late 1950s and 1960s, fought and won a newspaper war with the now defunct Toronto Telegram, bought up its circulation lists and its fleet of community newspapers, crusaded in support of diversity, national unity and cultural nationalism, and acquired Harlequin Enterprises, for many years a substantial cash cow for Torstar Corp.
"He took a paper that mattered and turned it into a great newspaper. I think his impact on Canadian journalism and his craft was huge," said his son, John HONDERICH, himself a former editor and publisher of the Toronto Star and now a member of the board of directors of Torstar Corp.
He was hard to love, but easy to respect, said Peter NEWMAN, editor-in-chief from 1969 to 1971. "I was always impressed by his wisdom, his determination and his optimistic view of the Canadian future. Unlike most publishers, his ideology went way beyond the bottom line. He never really understood the Canada that stretched beyond the shadow of the C.N. Tower, but he loved the idea of this country."
Beland (Bee) Hugh HONDERICH was born in Baden (near Kitchener,) Ontario, one of six children of John William HONDERICH, a Mennonite postmaster and railway agent, and Rae Laura (ARMSTRONG,) a Presbyterian. Religion was a contentious and omnipresent factor, according to Mr. HONDERICH's youngest brother, philosopher Edgar (Ted) HONDERICH. His father liked unusual names. He called his eldest son Loine and he named his second son after a physician named Béland in Montreal.
During the Depression, the family home was sold at auction when the mortgage holder foreclosed. Beland left school after Grade 8 to help support the family and began working as the Baden correspondent for the Kitchener Record (now The Record) in 1935 at the age of 17.
He did well covering two big fires in his community and made the move to the Toronto Star as a wartime replacement in 1943, earning $35 a week. He had been rejected from the armed forces because he had poor eyesight and a bad ear. When he got to the Star, he was told "all the good men were away fighting" and warned that there wouldn't be a job for him when they came back.
Shy, private, and insecure -- the poorly educated country man in the big city -- he "always felt he had to work twice as hard," according to his son, John.
Mr. HONDERICH told the journalist Doug (now George) FETHERLING in a 1983 interview for Saturday Night magazine that "you produced or else," explaining that he covered two speeches a day, delivering a few facts and a couple of "punchy" quotes. "It left a deep impression on my mind... what people are interested in is information." This was a lesson he would apply when he had control of the paper.
Far from being dismissed when peace was declared, he was promoted to financial editor in 1945, named editor-in-chief a decade later and elected a director of the company in 1957.
The Toronto Star is a private business like other newspapers in Canada, but it is unusual in that it is owned by a group of families and it operates according to a set of principles established by the late Joseph ATKINSON Sr. He became editor in 1899, quickly turned the struggling newspaper around and soon acquired a controlling interest. In 1911, Harry C. HINDMARSH joined the paper. He became Mr. ATKINSON's lieutenant and his son-in-law. Together, they turned the newspaper into the home of "razzle-dazzle journalism," ordering saturation coverage of big stories and indulging in huge headlines, full-page pictures and wacky stunts. They also supported the Liberal Party and social-welfare issues such as mothers' allowances, unemployment insurance, old-age pensions, minimum wages and the rights of labour unions. The combination of Christian piety, free-wheeling Fabian socialism and popular journalism was good for circulation and advertising revenues. By 1913, the Star was Toronto's largest paper and Mr. ATKINSON was its controlling shareholder.
He died in 1948, leaving an estate of more than $8-million, putting the bulk of it, including the ownership of the paper, into the Atkinson Charitable Foundation, which he had established six years earlier. In his will, he directed that profits from the paper's operations were "for the promotion and maintenance of social, scientific and economic reforms which are charitable in nature, for the benefit of the people of the province of Ontario" and he stipulated that the paper could be sold only to people who shared his social views.
Mr. HINDMARSH became president of the five-person board established to govern the paper and carry out Mr. ATKINSON's wishes. However, the Ontario government, led by Conservative Leslie FROST, and rival newspapers, including The Globe and Mail and The Toronto Telegram, argued that the foundation was merely a device to avoid paying succession duties on Mr. ATKINSON's estate.
The FROST government passed a law forbidding charitable foundations from owning more than 10 per cent of a profit-making business. The Star was given seven years to sell its business interests, with the foundation's trustees, officers and directors allowed to buy them, subject to the approval of the Supreme Court of Canada.
While this wrangling was going on, Mr. HINDMARSH dropped dead of a heart attack on December 20, 1956. The new board of the Atkinson Foundation was made up of Joseph S. ATKINSON (son of the late Mr. ATKINSON,) his sister Ruth HINDMARSH (widow of Mr. HINDMARSH), Burnett THALL, William J. CAMPBELL and Mr. HONDERICH.
In 1958, after swearing before the Supreme Court that they would uphold the principles outlined in Mr. ATKINSON's will, they were allowed to buy the newspaper. They paid $25.5-million in a leveraged buyout, which Globe business columnist Eric REGULY has called "the steal of the century." They put down $1-million in cash and secured most of the rest by selling debt and preferred shares to the public.
Mr. HONDERICH, who had been editor for three years and on the board for one, had no family money or other resources to draw upon. He was living in a duplex with his wife and three children. "We had one couch and one chair," said his son John. "The Bank of Commerce virtually put up all the money, but the security was the shares of the largest newspaper in the country."
In addition, Mr. HONDERICH took a personal loan for his 15-per-cent share, helped by advice and references from accountant, cultural nationalist and later politician, Walter GORDON. Today, Torstar Corp., the media conglomerate that owns the Star, is worth about $1.7-billion.
As editor and then publisher, Mr. HONDERICH built the great Toronto Star newsroom of the late 1950s and 1960s. He transformed the paper from a flashy, scoop-an-edition news sheet into an information-based vehicle for columnists and critics. He quickly realized, according to journalist Val SEARS, that the real market in the postwar period lay in finding readers among the young middle class in the suburbs who were moving up through the social strata.
They wanted context and information, not just headlines. Ron HAGGART worked as a columnist for the Star in the sixties. Mr. HONDERICH had the right ideas about how to change the Star, which was a stodgy, old-fashioned paper, according to Mr. HAGGART. "It was still a paper that believed the most recent event deserved a headline because it had happened in the last hour."
Among the stable of writers and editors Mr. HONDERICH enlisted or celebrated were: Pierre Berton as a daily columnist, Charles Templeton as managing editor, Nathan Cohen as drama critic, Milt Dunnell on sports, Gwyn (Jocko) Thomas on crime and Peter NEWMAN as Ottawa editor and editor-in-chief.
He loved to hire people, said journalist Robert FULFORD, who worked for the Star twice (from 1958 to 1962 and from 1964 to 1968), but he quickly grew bored with them. Managing editors were a notoriously endangered species, according to Mr. FULFORD, who once joked that after more than two years on the job, managing editors took on the look of "hunted animals." When he was having trouble sleeping at night, police reporter Jocko Thomas was said to recite the names of the more than 40 city editors who served during his long career at the paper.
Mr. NEWMAN spent seven years at the Star, leaving in 1971 in "frustration because [Mr. HONDERICH] was always stone-cold certain about what he didn't want, but not good at suggesting practical options."
He could be a bully. "He wasn't a particularly big man, but he looked big to his employees. He tended to tower," said Mr. SEARS, who worked for Mr. HONDERICH for about 25 years in a number of capacities, including Ottawa bureau chief and Washington correspondent. "He spoke low, but he made his position very clear. On the other hand, he was certainly the best publisher I ever worked for because he knew what he wanted and he would back you up."
Saying that he and Mr. HONDERICH fought a lot, especially when he was editor of the editorial page, Mr. SEARS said he always thought it was a mistake to try to outguess his boss. Mr. HONDERICH seemed aware of his power. "He once said to me, 'If I walk through that newsroom and I say to someone it is a nice day, by the final edition I have two full pages on the weather," said Mr. SEARS.
Stories abound about Mr. HONDERICH's tendency to micromanage. When he was editor, he behaved as though he was the publisher and when he became publisher and president in 1966, "he acted as though he owned the paper outright," Mr. FULFORD said.
Staffers were obsessed with anticipating his wishes, often with bizarre results. Somebody heard that "Bee" believed that a colour photograph had to have red in it, so Star photographers took to stowing red jackets in their cars and asking people to put them on before snapping their pictures, or so the story goes.
"Bee had a phobia about accompanying each picture in his paper with explanatory cutlines," recalled Mr. NEWMAN. "I got hell once for running an illustration of Gina Lollobrigida, the Italian film star, standing beside a male dwarf, because I had left out the 'left' and 'right' identifications."
During his years at the newspaper, Mr. HONDERICH oversaw the introduction of colour, the shift from an afternoon to a morning paper, a Sunday edition and the appointment of the first ombudsman at any paper in Canada. He was also a driving force behind the establishment of the Ontario Press Council. In 1976, he was appointed chairman and chief executive officer of Torstar Corp. He continued to serve as publisher until September, 1988.
Mr. HONDERICH married three times. His and his first wife Florence divorced in 1962. He married Agnes KING in 1968. Star legend has it that he called the paper from the airport as he and his bride were leaving on their honeymoon and asked for the front page to be read to him. She died of cancer in 1999 after a long and painful illness. "He was amazingly diligent in the way he cared for her," said his son John.
That same year he became engaged to Rina WHELAN, a widow he had met many years before (when both were married to other people) in the barbershop of the Hotel Vancouver, where she worked as a manicurist. "This is one of the great love stories," John HONDERICH said, "I have had the honour of standing up for him at two of his three weddings."
The HONDERICHs lived in the penthouse of La Carina (Rina's House,) a condominium she had developed and built on English Bay. "He was a wealthy man and she was a wealthy woman," commented Mr. HONDERICH's brother Ted, "and so both were under suspicion of being gold diggers."
Mr. HONDERICH became more left wing in his politics as he became older, said his brother. "All newspaper publishers are accused of being ruthless, but actually they are activists," he said. "They want to make things happen and they don't like things hanging on in an indecisive way."
Beland Hugh HONDERICH was born on November 25, 1918, in Baden, Ontario. He died yesterday in St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver after a massive stroke. He was 86. He is survived by his first wife Florence, his third wife Rina, three children, six grandchildren and one brother.

PICKERSGILL, John Whitney, 1997 -- Died This Day
Wednesday, November 9, 2005, Page S9
Politician born in Wyecombe, Ontario, on June 23, 1905.
While he was a boy, his family moved to a homestead in Manitoba where they farmed. He breezed through the University of Manitoba and then went to Oxford to study history. In 1929, he returned to Manitoba to be a college lecturer but fancied a better salary. In 1936, he wrote the civil-service examination. When he arrived in Ottawa in 1937, he expected to join the Department of External Affairs but, instead, was sent to the Prime Minister's Office for what he was told would be a short term. Nobody lasted more than six weeks with Mackenzie KING. He not only survived but rose to become Clerk of the Privy Council. In between, he met Joey SMALLWOOD and came to support the cause of Newfoundland's joining Canada. In 1953, he ran for Parliament in Bonavista-Twillingate and became Newfoundland's representative in the federal cabinet. In 1954, he became minister of citizenship and immigration. During the Diefenbaker years, he was an effective voice in opposition. When the Liberals returned to office in 1963 under Lester PEARSON, he became secretary of state and House leader. In 1964, he accepted the transport portfolio and introduced the National Transportation Act, at the same time creating the job of chairman of the transport commission at a salary of $40,000 a year. He then wrote the job description and arranged for his own appointment. He was a master at turning the wheels of government, a skill that earned him a grudging tribute from Mr. DIEFENBAKER: " Parliament without Pick would be like hell without the devil."

William FARLINGER, Accountant and Chief Executive Officer: (1929-2005)
'Slow-moving guy with a razor-sharp mind' went from success as head of Ernst and Young to disappointment as chair of Ontario Hydro, writes Sandra MARTIN. His stumble came with a failed attempt at privatization
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, December 3, 2005, Page S11
A chartered accountant who headed up Clarkson Gordon (now Ernst & Young,) William "Bill" FARLINGER retired in 1993 after a stellar career in business. Dynamic and energetic, he combined his business acumen, his private-sector connections and his political philosophy in the campaign to elect Mike Harris premier of Ontario in 1995.
"For many, Bill FARLINGER will be remembered as a decisive and intelligent leader. For me, he was also a kind and gentle friend," the former premier said this week.
Mr. HARRIS named Mr. FARLINGER chair of Ontario Hydro in 1995, with the mandate to privatize the public utility that had been one of the economic engines of the province's prosperity. The initiative went horribly wrong, with Mr. FARLINGER castigated in the press for lavish spending. He remained chair of the board and its successor, Ontario Power Generation, until 2003 when the Harris government was defeated by Dalton McGuinty's Liberals.
The unresolved question is why Mr. FARLINGER took on such an onerous and risky challenge, when he could have been golfing, fishing or relaxing with his grandchildren and his second wife, Esther. He knew the workings of the company, or must have thought he did, because Clarkson Gordon had been Ontario Hydro's accountants for decades. And yet in August of 1997, two years after he became chair of the board, he released a scathing internal report on mismanagement at the public utility and announced that seven of its 19 atomic reactors had to be shut down. "The nuclear unit was operated over all those early years as some sort of special nuclear cult," he said at a press conference.
"My father had a dream of privatizing electricity," said his daughter Pamela EARLE. "He didn't believe any government could ever run it very well and he believed electricity would be cheaper and the environment would be [cleaner] if it were privatized, and that is what he tried to do."
In retrospect, says former premier Ernie EVES, privatizing Ontario Hydro was doomed because "we didn't have enough competition out there to privatize it." In his opinion, you need a fairly level playing field with some decent competitors. "It is not going to work if you have an overwhelming player who controls 85 or 90 per cent of the power generation, and the other players are all scrambling around fighting over the other 10 to 15 per cent," he says. "It may come to pass but, in hindsight, I just don't think we were ready to make it work."
Mr. FARLINGER's old friend and mentor, accountant and public-policy writer Jack BIDDELL has a harsher explanation. "Here is a man whose father was very wealthy, who left Bill with a lot of money. Bill had a tremendous income as Chief Executive Officer of Clarkson Gordon, but he was obsessed with seeing how much money he could make. He was a great family man and I loved him, but that was his main concern. He never did anything unethical, but the urge to make money and to demonstrate how smart he was, was there. I never understood it." The two men broke over Ontario Hydro and Mr. BIDDELL's greatest regret is that they never had time to repair the rift in their nearly 50-year Friendship.
William Bill Alexander FARLINGER was born just after the stock market crash that heralded the Depression, the eldest of two children of real estate salesman Alexander FARLINGER and his wife Allie (PURVES.) Although times were tough when Bill was a child, his father became a successful real-estate developer in the 1950s and 1960s, building Bayview Village and some of the first townhouses at the corner of York Mills and Bayview in Toronto.
Mr. FARLINGER met his first wife, Shirley (TABB) FARLINGER, in Grade 8 in the local elementary school they both attended in North Toronto. They started going steady when they were 12, a romance that lasted all through high school at Lawrence Park Collegiate Institute and the University of Toronto. Tall, lithe and graceful, Mr. FARLINGER was a hurdler and a pole vaulter, and was elected to the sports hall of fame at the University of Toronto in 1991 and awarded an honorary degree the following year.
The FARLINGERs married in 1951, right after graduation, when both were 21.
With a degree in commerce and finance, Mr. FARLINGER joined Clarkson Gordon the same year. "He showed his mettle early on," said Ken LEMON, a former executive, who had joined the firm in 1936. "He had a strong personality and he was very smart."
He worked in the auditing business while he qualified as a chartered accountant and then moved into the insolvency and bankruptcy business, working mainly under Jack BIDDELL. "I recognized his talents and I had a little bit to do with moving him around the country to our various offices [in Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto]," said Mr. BIDDELL. "He was very bright, a good accountant, very articulate, very pleasant and dealt with people well."
One of the big cases Mr. FARLINGER worked on was the liquidation of Investors Overseas Services, then the biggest pension fund in the world. Investors Overseas Services had its headquarters in Geneva, but it had been incorporated in New Brunswick. That was why Clarkson Gordon was involved in securing and resolving a pension fund that involved governments in several countries.
Mr. LEMON was instrumental in bringing Mr. FARLINGER onto the executive committee of Clarkson Gorden. The firm had had a long association with the American firm Arthur Young, representing them in Canada and being represented by them around the world. After A.C. Ernst and Arthur Young merged in the U.S. in 1989, there was a question about who their Canadian affiliate would be.
By then senior partner and Chief Executive Officer of the firm, Mr. FARLINGER made certain it was Clarkson Gordon. The cost was changing the firm's name to Ernst and Young. "From our standpoint, it was a very important step in the history of the firm," said Mr. LEMON. "We would have lost our international connection and our ability to work around the world."
Mr. BIDDELL, who had not welcomed the change, eventually saw that it was a good and necessary move. "When he told me the details, I reached over and shook his hand."
Mr. FARLINGER and his wife Shirley had five children; Brian, who died of H.I.V./A.I.D.S. in 1995, Pamela, Craig, Leonard and David. A keen outdoorsman, Mr. FARLINGER loved fishing, golfing and skiing. He taught his kids to ski and insisted they all learn French when he was transferred to Montreal in 1967. The family spent winter holidays on ski slopes around the world and summers portaging and camping at a rustic fishing camp in Caughnawana, Quebec, due east of North Bay, Ontario, that he had bought in 1975 with Mr. LEMON.
Mr. FARLINGER had a rare combination of strength and gentleness that made him very attractive to be around, said his daughter. "He really listened and was sympathetic to many points of view and I think that is what made him so dynamic in the boardroom and in our family." Sunday dinners were lively and opinionated, she said.
After 36 years of marriage, the FARLINGERs separated in 1987 because they had "evolved" in different ways, according to his first wife, who has since remarried. She supported the Green Party and the New Democratic Party and he was an arch Conservative.
"My mother had been a housewife for 25 years, raising the kids. She had been a very loving mother, but as she saw dad's career develop she wanted to make her mark, too, and Dad really wanted a wife who would be by his side and do charities and galas."
He married his second wife, Esther, a golfer, fundraiser and interior designer, in 1988.
After he retired from Ernst and Young, Mr. FARLINGER formed his own management consulting firm, "but he was itching to do something bigger," said his nephew Bill KING, a former journalist for the North Bay Nugget, who was working in Mike HARRIS's constituency office in the late 1980s. That something bigger turned out to be electing Mr. HARRIS as leader of the party and then premier of the province. Mr. FARLINGER raised money, gave Mr. HARRIS legitimacy with his business connections on Bay Street, and helped strategize the Common Sense Revolution.
"He really impressed me," said Mr. EVES, another key player in Mr. HARRIS's leadership bid. "He was a slow-moving guy with a razor-sharp mind. He could take any problem you had and make it into a succinct matter instead of going on and on about a pile of irrelevant stuff."
Mr. EVES also knew Mr. FARLINGER on the golf course, a place where you can learn a lot about a man's character. "There are a lot of people who will cheat here and there or move the ball, but not Bill. He always played strictly by the rules. He was a very honest and decent guy."
William Alexander FARLINGER was born in Toronto on November 21, 1929. He died on November 28, 2005, after suffering a massive stroke 10 days earlier. He was 76. He is survived by his wife Esther, four children, one stepson and 14 grandchildren.

Paul ROAZEN, Scholar And Writer: (1936-2005)
York University professor chronicled the development of psychoanalysis and explored Sigmund Freud's complex relationships with Friends, family and followers
By Stephen STRAUSS, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, December 8, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Of the many accomplishments that could be attributed to York University professor Paul ROAZEN, perhaps the most lasting may be that he created a field of study that had never existed meta-psychotherapy.
Over the course of a long and extraordinarily productive career, the teacher of social and political science deconstructed the many different relationships that existed within the world of psychotherapy, particularly those that wove in and around its iconic founder, Sigmund Freud.
"He was not involved in psychotherapy itself, but he was involved in the analysis of psychoanalysis," says Cyril GREENLAND, a former professor of social work at McMaster University and a friend of Dr. ROAZEN.
The bedrock of his work were lengthy interviews that Dr. ROAZEN conducted in the early 1960s with 70 of Freud's patients and colleagues -- interviews that uncovered quirks and diversions in the techniques that eventually turned into psychoanalytic orthodoxy. Among the striking findings was the revelation that the classic position of a psychoanalyst and his patient -- patient verbalizing on couch, doctor sitting behind him silently taking notes -- wasn't how the process originally began.
Freud was initially quite chatty and spoke directly to his patients until surgery for mouth-and-throat cancer made him so self-conscious about his appearance that he preferred to interview without being seen.
Dr. ROAZEN also revealed that Freud had broken what might be thought of as the sacrosanct boundary between patient and parent by psychoanalyzing his daughter Anna. His deconstruction of Freud and his methods infuriated the psychoanalytic community in general and Anna FREUD in particular. So much so that she subsequently wrote in a letter: "Everything Paul ROAZEN writes is a menace." But illustrative of how much Dr. ROAZEN saw his duty to speak the truth as he saw it, the remark was something he quoted proudly.
Another classic among his other 22 books was Brother Animal, in which Dr. ROAZEN (pronounced Roe-zuhn) unravelled the relationship between Freud and Viktor TAUSK -- a student who became a brilliant but troubled colleague, was the lover of one early woman psychiatrist and the patient of another, and eventually committed suicide. A reviewer in The New York Times called the book "an altogether compelling excursion into psychoanalytic history that develops like an intellectual mystery story."
Following in the path of Freud, who co-wrote a psychoanalytic history of Woodrow Wilson, Dr. ROAZEN published in 1998 a study of Mackenzie KING, Canada's King: An Essay in Political Psychology. In 1916, after King fell into a deep depression, he went to Johns Hopkins University for treatment by a psychiatrist. Using notes and letters in the Johns Hopkins archives, Dr. ROAZEN produced a vivid picture of a man so mentally disturbed he believed other people were influencing him through electrical currents and, conversely, that he could influence them back with currents he generated himself.
In a review of the book, Paul ADAM/ADAMS, a former Globe and Mail Middle East correspondent, wrote that Dr. ROAZEN's "cautious, knowledgeable and sympathetic approach cuts quite a contrast to the half-baked psychologizing we read all the time about everyone from Saddam Hussein to Lucien Bouchard."
Part of what ensured Dr. ROAZEN's even-handedness was his phenomenal memory for detail -- particularly when it came to Freud.
"If you would ask him what Freud did on September 2, 1916, he would ask back, 'In the morning or afternoon?' -- that's how detailed his memory was," recounts Hans MOHR, a friend of 40 years and a former colleague of Dr. ROAZEN's at York.
But, like the subject matter he pursued, it was difficult to encapsulate Dr. ROAZEN in a single frame.
He was born in Massachusetts and attended Harvard University, where he received his doctorate in 1965. He soon joined the faculty and stayed until 1971, when he moved to Toronto's York University as part of a stream of new professors joining a quickly growing institution full of multi-disciplinary energy. "His persona was his work; his life was his work," his son Jules said about his father's central passion.
As a teacher, Dr. ROAZEN was, in equal parts, brilliant, daunting and acidulously dismissive. While open to students on many levels, "Paul often overwhelmed undergraduates with the breadth and diversity of his historical allusions and references, expecting a depth and sophistication... that many graduate students do not yet possess," recalls Daniel BURSTON, a former graduate student of Dr. ROAZEN who now teaches at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh.
As an individual, he also was -- the word is used repeatedly by people who knew him -- irascible. "He could be very bad tempered and very demanding," says Prof. GREENLAND. "On the other hand, he could be very wise and very generous and very helpful. On any given day, it was difficult to predict which Paul ROAZEN you would get."
Author John Robert COLOMBO, who was a friend, recounts attending a presentation by a graduate student to a small group of people where Dr. ROAZEN exploded because "it was not up to the master's level, and, oh, it was appalling. He later followed and phoned everyone and didn't apologize but gave reason for his attack, as though there was no moral culpability there."
Nonetheless, the energy that he put into analyzing psychoanalysis produced works so instructive both to the therapy community and to those wishing to understand the effect of the psychotherapy world view on the intellectual zeitgeist of the 20th century that any personal flaws were overlooked by those who came after.
"I think Paul's greatest contribution to psychotherapy was his willingness to confront legends and, in the process, to reveal truth," said Deirdre Bair, the British author of a much-praised biography of psychotherapist Carl Jung. "He did not hesitate to go where angels fear to tread and, in the process, he trampled... many iconic images.
"His gift to the discipline was to seek out the truth, no matter how unpleasant it might have been for the entrenched 'authorities' to read it," says Ms. Bair, who had been encouraged by Dr. ROAZEN to write the Jung book.
"Whether they know it or not, everyone working in this field today is directly or indirectly in his debt," says Prof. BURSTON.
After taking early retirement from York, Dr. ROAZEN moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts., and continued writing. He was elected a member of the Royal Society of Canada in 1993 and made an honorary member of the American Psychoanalytic Association in 2004.
Paul ROAZEN was born in Boston in 1936. He died of complications from Crohn's disease at his home in Cambridge on November 3. He was 69. He leaves his sons Daniel HELLER- ROAZEN, a professor of comparative literature at Princeton University, and Jules ROAZEN, a banker in New York; a brother, Dr. Bernard ROAZEN, of San Francisco; and a sister, Sheila WEISS, of Westport, Connecticut.
His marriage to Deborah HELLER, now a professor of English at York University, ended in divorce.

The sensitivity to the patient's pain, shown by the radiation staff of 2B - unit 14 at the Princess Margaret Hospital was deeply appreciated. Finally, words cannot express the gratitude and admiration for all the staff and volunteers at the Carpenter Hospice - they truly made Len's final days as meaningful as possible.

Joy was born on May 10, 1919 to Vera and James CREYK in Toronto, a sad yet joyous day for Vera as her husband James, Joy's father, had died November 1918 of influenza. Joy attended Northern Secondary and the Bishop Strachan School before serving in Washington, D.C. during the Second World War for four years. Joy returned to Toronto and married James Patrick KING- WILSON at Timothy Eaton Church on Guy Fawkes Day, November 5, 1953. Joy and Patrick had two children, Norma in 1955 and John in 1957. After her divorce, Joy went to work for her mother, Vera at Shoppe d'Or Ltd. at 119 Yorkville Avenue, which her mother founded in 1945. Joy retired from Shoppe D'Or on July 1, 1987, Canada Day, and drove herself at the tender age of 67, all the way across the country to Victoria, alone. A feat she was exceedingly proud of and which gave her daughter many anxious days. Joy had a marvelous house with fabulous gardens that she tended with love and peacefulness for 16 years on the incomparably beautiful Vancouver Island in Broadmead, Victoria, British Columbia. Her home was a safe haven and filled with Friends from near and far, young and old. Joy moved to the Lodge at Broadmead in August 2001 after a series of health issues. Joy leaves her daughter Norma Victoria KING- WILSON, her son John William KING- WILSON, her beloved cousin Marilyn PIDDINGTON, Pasadena, California, her brother Hugh SYKES of Victoria, British Columbia, and her step-children Marianne KING- WILSON (Dr. Roger GOULD) of Parry Sound, Ontario; Pamela KING- WILSON, Vancouver, British Columbia; Susan KING- WILSON (Chas) Vancouver, British Columbia; James KING- WILSON, England; also her Friends in Broadmead - Connie MacGregor and Sheila and Bill Chauven. Extremely heartfelt thanks to all the caregivers of the Lodge at Broadmead and to Jean Muir, all love and gratitude. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. on Wednesday, March 23rd. A Funeral Service will be held at Grace Church-on-the-Hill, 300 Lonsdale Avenue, Toronto, at 10 o'clock on Thursday, March 24th. Interment Mt. Pleasant Cemetery. In Joy's memory, and in memory of all those who have served our country, please send donations to the Tillicum and Veterans Care Society at The Lodge at Broadmead, 4579 Chatterton Way, Victoria, British Columbia V8X 4Y7.

Lynn KING: Protector of youths' rights
Justice Lynn KING became known for the human touch
As a lawyer, was an advocate for women during divorce
By Gabe GONDA, Staff Reporter, Page B5
Justice Lynn KING was a forceful and humane ally of young people caught up in the chaos of the legal system.
From her bench in the courts of 311 Jarvis Street, KING delivered sometimes tough, often compassionate justice in family matters and to a generation of young offenders, once challenging the provincial government on their behalf.
KING was appointed a judge in 1986 after a distinguished career in family law that led her to write What Every Woman Should Know About Marriage, Separation And Divorce. The book was published in 1980 and solidified its author's reputation as a leading advocate of women's rights during a time of rising divorce rates.
She died of breast cancer on Friday at the age of 60.
Born in Sudbury on April 19, 1944, to Harry WAISBERG, a lawyer and alderman, and his wife Madelaine, KING left home before her final year of high school to attend Toronto's Branksome Hall. She was one of two Jewish girls in her class.
KING studied economics at the University of Toronto and returned to her alma mater for a law degree after getting an M.A. at the Fletcher School for Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in Boston.
After graduating, KING went into practice with then-husband Greg KING and Paul COPELAND. In 1976, she formed a partnership with Harriet SACHS, later a colleague in family court.
When KING was appointed to the bench, she quickly made an impact in the area that would define her career as a judge: the rights of young people who found themselves on the wrong side of the law.
In July 1988, KING ruled that a 15-year-old Toronto boy's Charter rights had been violated because he wasn't offered a chance to write an essay or do other forms of community work to pay for his crime. KING was challenging the province to offer teens alternative sentencing options, which were being provided by other provinces under the Young Offenders Act. That ruling was overturned on appeal.
When KING wasn't occupied with high-profile constitutional cases, she was developing the human touch that made her a role model to her judicial colleagues and the lawyers who argued before her.
Justice Brian WEAGANT ran a youth legal clinic before serving beside KING as a judge. He remembers a case in the late 1980s in which a teen he was representing had been charged with assault after defending his sister during a scuffle in a store.
The teen, who'd recently moved with his family from South America, wanted to plead guilty, so WEAGANT advised him to put on his best clothes before going to court to see KING.
"He and his family went to the Salvation Army and got him a tuxedo, which he wore to court. Judge KING was just totally disarmed by this and she ended up discharging him. Sure enough, he was never in trouble again," WEAGANT said.
Justice SACHS described the young man in the tuxedo as "one of thousands" touched by KING's interventions.
On the side, KING wrote book reviews for the Toronto Star.
Her husband, novelist M.T. KELLY, said her interests remained varied to the end. During her final weeks, she entertained herself by watching the Gomery inquiry and listening to rapper Eminem, a habit that amused her sons, Jonah and Max.
"She was beautiful," KELLY said.
A service will be held today at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery Chapel at 3 p.m.

Age did not dim advocate's fire
Mae HARMAN worked tirelessly for social justice
Her north Toronto house was the site of many a meeting
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Mae HARMAN reached her full potential only when she retired almost 20 years ago and became a full-time advocate.
She had certainly been successful as a supervisor at University Settlement House and for years as a member of the University of Windsor's social work department, but she found her real vocation as a straight-talking letter-writing, speech-making, banner-bearing thorn in many a government's side.
"Mae has been a model advocate for me and for other members of the Canadian Pensioners Concerned," said Bruce MUTCH, who met HARMAN in 1986, the year after she joined the board of the feisty non-partisan advocacy group.
"Even her voice mail was a plea for harmony in living."
She could write thoughtful, considered and knowledgeable position papers. She could and did write snippy and/or exasperated letters to government ministries and newspapers.
"It's a great relief to know, thanks to Mike HARRIS, that the real value of education is in learning how to market yourself. What fools the thinkers and teachers have been for thousands of years, putting their efforts into studying and researching in the arts and sciences. No wonder teachers are so despised by our government," read one of them.
As her grandnephew, Peter MURRAY, said, "Her weapon was the fax machine."
HARMAN volunteered for the Ontario Coalition of Senior Citizens Associations, the Ontario Health Coalition, Care Watch and the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario. She was a powerhouse for the University of Toronto social work alumnae, ensuring that social justice issues were always addressed in its newsletters. She was both fearless and tireless.
In September 2002, she was behind what MUTCH described as a "major comprehensive missive" submitted to the pre-budget consultations of the federal government's standing committee on finance.
"The prime concern of government should be to ensure that the rights and basic needs of all citizens are met, thus ensuring greater levels of prosperity and the highest quality of life for all Canadians," she wrote in part.
"It is time to put the Canadian people first. Business looks after itself very well. They have had priority with the government. A significant change in priorities is in order."
She wasn't afraid to take to the streets to make her point.
"She was often out at demos," said Dorothy MacKINNON, another Canadian Pensioners Concerned board member. "There was one with the Ryerson students umpteen years ago and we went there with our banner. The students were so surprised. They thanked us."
HARMAN marched to Queen's Park protesting Mike Harris's Common Sense Revolution during the Days of Action. In 1996, while in Ottawa drawing up battle plans to fight rumours of pension cuts, she told a reporter: "We are tired of being called greedy geezers and grasping grannies. We're not just in this for ourselves. We are parents and grandparents, and we care about our children and grandchildren, and we want something to be there for them when they reach retirement."
Her small north Toronto house was the site of many meetings, and it was loaded with plaques recognizing her volunteer work. She received her last award this past November, from the Ontario Society (Coalition) of Senior Citizens' Organizations, for her efforts on behalf of seniors and the disabled.
This past February she died at home of cancer. She was 84 and still fighting. She had been working on a draft of a speech about compulsory retirement, to which she was adamantly opposed. Her niece, Joan MURRAY, recalled how someone inquired of HARMAN how she was feeling about a month before her death.
"Angry," was the reply.
HARMAN was born in the parlour of the family farm in King Township. Her parents were hardworking though somewhat complacent farmers, but her older brother Leonard, who married the local schoolteacher, was a catalyst for discussions about social justice. His sister became secretary of the Temperance Farm Radio Forum, their local rural discussion group and one of many across the country sponsored by Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio and farm organizations.
HARMAN recently had talked about finding a letter dated 1942 from Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie KING. It acknowledged her remarks about the health system.
The first member of her family to attend university, she graduated from the faculty of social work at the University of Toronto in 1946 and worked for the Young Men's Christian Association in Winnipeg and Toronto before joining University Settlement House. "To Mae, each person was a person of worth," said Harry MORROW, who was her boss at the time. "She didn't do for people. She did things with them."
Later, at the University of Windsor, she was well known for mentoring and hosting dinner parties for exchange social work students from Hong Kong, but everyone agrees it was when she moved back to Toronto and took up volunteer work that she really hit her stride.
"She really got her fire," said MORROW. " There had been no indication she was this crusading type when she had been working."
She thrived in her new neighbourhood: she was the lady in the witch-and-spider earrings handing out candy every Halloween and she regularly threw big parties to which everyone was invited. When she was being treated for cancer, she would sit in her living room -- languishing in her bedroom was not her style, according to MURRAY, her niece -- as Friends and neighbours came in through the open front door. Long an advocate of a strong home health- care system, she benefited from it and her team of caregivers.
MURRAY said the night before HARMAN died, she had fallen off her bed. A friend called 911 and four handsome firefighters arrived to put her back in bed. At least that was HARMAN's version. "We were having a bit of a party," she told MURRAY. She died the next morning, in that bed, petting her cat, Joy.

KING, Brian
It is with the greatest sadness that the family of Brian KING announces his passing on April 13, 2005, at the age of 75. Brian will be lovingly remembered by his wife Lois. He will be cherished always by his children Vivienne, Vashti, Suzanne and Gabriella, and his grandchildren William, Emily and Matthew. Brian was born in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex in 1929. Having a love of ships and travel he began to work on the deep sea ocean freighter as a certified radio operator, travelling world wide. In the early 1950's, Brian worked in the Arctic Circle as a qualified radio operator with D.E.W. Systems. He transferred to Victoria, British Columbia in 1957 where he met Lois. They married in 1959, and moved to Burlington, Ontario. In the early 1960's Brian established his own production company providing services to customers such as Dofasco (Christmas Special), National Film Board, Channel 13, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Toronto Star. His occupation gave him the opportunity to travel extensively throughout the world with his wife and his four daughters. Brian was extremely well read, with a personal library of over 3,000 books. He retired to the west coast Gulf Islands in the late 1980's to enjoy the sea, the ships and reading. He was a devoted father, grandfather and husband, his greatest joy came from time spent with his family. All that were honoured to know him will miss his kind persona, his wonderful humour and his zest for life. Brian has returned to England and was buried in Rochford. Service was held at St. Clement's Church, Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, April 29, 2005. "And nothing 'gainst Time's scythe can make defence Save breed, to brave him when he takes thee hence"

Kay SNELGROVE, 84: Intrepid spy and courier
Part of legendary spy operation
Kept quiet about her wartime work throughout life
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Every family has its secrets. And had the 1976 bestseller A Man Called Intrepid, not been written, Kay SNELGROVE's family might never have learned of hers.
As a teenaged schoolgirl attending Emerson College in Boston and regularly going back home to Saint John, New Brunswick, to visit Friends and family in the early years of World War 2, she helped deliver dozens of covert messages from Britain's war offices that ultimately went to those of American president Franklin D. Roosevelt.
She was part of the largest intelligence operation in history run by Canadian Sir William STEPHENSON, secret envoy for British prime minister Winston Churchill and the man code-named Intrepid.
After the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, catapulting the Americans into the war, she was pulled out of school and brought home. Like many women, she went to work for the war effort; unlike many women, she was a code runner, a young woman with war knowledge considered so vital, she was assigned an Royal Canadian Mounted Police undercover officer to accompany her to and from her work at the naval yards.
She had taken an oath of secrecy and she kept it until author William STEVENSON's book was published. It described what is generally believed to be a masterful campaign by Britain to draw the U.S. out of its isolationist policy into the war effort to defeat the Nazis. STEPHENSON ran it out of the British Security Co-ordination Office in Rockefeller Center. Its cable address was Intrepid. But SNELGROVE took no joy in telling her children about what she did in the war.
It was the late '70s and by then she was a single mom living in Brampton raising June, her youngest and the only child still at home. Her country club and cocktail-party lifestyle had ended in 1969 when her husband, Don, left her and she became one of the first women of her set to divorce and downsize to a lifestyle that came without the backyard pool.
She'd picked up the pieces and applied for her first job since she was married, as a receptionist at the Brampton Daily Times, a now defunct Thomson newspaper. SNELGROVE had stunned her boss when she had put down the name of Ken Thomson himself as a reference. She went on to head the paper's classified ad section until she retired in 1986.
Reading STEVENSON's bestseller was "bittersweet" for her, her daughter Mary NORWOOD said.
According to her son, David SNELGROVE, when the book came out she realized she could finally talk about what she did -- but the only person she wanted to talk to about it had died in 1972.
"She always said she regretted never talking to her father about it," he said.
Because she always believed -- but never knew for sure -- that it was her father who volunteered her for the secret agent job.
Thomas MARTIN was a successful consultant working for the federal government rescuing foundering companies in the Dirty Thirties.
Although a lifelong Tory, he was a close colleague of and often on call to Liberal prime minister Mackenzie KING, whom his only child took to calling "Uncle Mac."
Her mother, Rose, an opera singer in Britain, made sure her daughter had every lesson imaginable: jazz, piano, ballet, tap, even acrobatic dance. She grew up in increasingly comfortable and influential homes in the West, then Montreal, where she became Friends with a young man named Pierre Elliott Trudeau whom she always called Elliott, and on to Saint John, where the family lived two blocks from the home of K.S. Irving and where she pitched on the same baseball team as two of his sons.
Talented, athletic and a whiz with numbers like her father, Kay MARTIN graduated from high school at 15. She never understood why her father insisted she attend Emerson College in Boston, where she studied dance and theatre with a great-grand_son of Davy Crockett.
She was in her second year when she was taken to the basement of a museum in Saint John where a man swore her to secrecy, told it had been cleared with her father, and conscripted her to serve her country.
That's how a tiny (she was 5-foot-1 and 99 pounds) convent-educated college girl became a King's Courier, blithely carrying white envelopes across the border. She knew only what she had to do she never knew who else was involved or what purposes the documents she was delivering served.
From her home in Saint John, she'd call a particular cab to drive her to the train station. When it arrived she would say to the driver, "Do you have something for me?" He would reach back over the seat and hand her a sealed envelope she'd put in her school papers.
She never told her children how she knew which Boston cabbie to hail, but once in the cab she had merely to say, "Take me to my dorm," and the driver would ask if she had something for him. And so it went, for two years, until 1941, her senior year, when she got a call demanding she come home for American Thanksgiving.
In Saint John, she again went to the museum basement where she was given another white envelope but this time told what message it contained, and then given different instructions and a combination of numbers and letters to memorize. She never forgot the message: It stated a large flotilla of Japanese battleships was heading for either Pearl Harbor or San Francisco, estimated time of arrival was December 6 or 7.
And she was to deliver that message to the British consul.
On December 6 she was studying in her dorm when her frantic roommate burst in announcing the Japanese bombing. "Pearl Harbor or San Francisco?" MARTIN blurted. It was the first time she had let anything slip and she thought it had gone unnoticed. But a half-hour later, her roommate wanted to know how MARTIN knew where the bombing was. She thought fast and said, "There are only two American naval bases on the west coast," which satisfied her roommate.
Almost immediately, she got a phone call ordering her home. With four months to go before she completed her degree and being of an independent nature, she refused, but the next day discovered her bank account had been emptied and closed, and when she returned to her room, a train ticket had been left on her bed. She never did graduate but went to work ostensibly as a secretary back in Canada.
Again, she was told where she would be working: at the New Brunswick Captor II naval base. Her job description was as a civilian secretary, but it was a cover for her work as an intelligence officer decoding cipher machines for critical naval operations. Once, she was hauled back to the base to run some codes on a suspicious ship in the Bay of Fundy with an outdated code. She identified it as an American vessel that had crossed the international dateline, and saved it from being blown up.
Decades later, she went into therapy to help with her resurfacing nightmares about working triage -- boarding ships to document the human devastation of war -- but when the war ended, she re-entered civilian life with gusto. The '50s found her living a Leave It To Beaver kind of life with the executive husband and three kids.
"She became Mrs. Mom," said NORWOOD.
Her mother taught her how to serve hors d'oeuvres at their parties, but she also taught her how to do a mean cartwheel. When daughter June YOUNG wasn't going to be able to take a night school gym class because of low enrolment, Kay SNELGROVE signed on and took the course. "I got a 79 and she got 84," said YOUNG.
When YOUNG started dating, her mother mentioned that she had been taught how to kill a man with a hatpin. Once, she showed her son an old bullet and told him it had been given to her at the end of the war by a man who said, "This had your name on it, Katie. We got him."
David SNELGROVE did some research on the Internet and found the bullet is a type issued to many European World War 2 military officers. "It could have been a true story," he said. " It's a great story and I don't have any reason not to believe it."
His mother was parsimonious with her war stories, however, never mentioning names, and tight-lipped about identifying details, as she had been trained to be. She never saw her role in the war as heroic. "I would say Mom felt it was her duty," said NORWOOD. "She sure loved her country. She loved being a Canadian."
SNELGROVE died April 25 in Brampton. She was 84 and had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease. She used to say she should write her memoirs, but she never did, perhaps because she was true to her word and kept her secrets.

'He died as a man. He died as a friend'
The Victim, Father, role model, passionate reggae dancer, Amon BECKLES was a centrepiece in his family
By Jessica LEEDER and Dale Anne FREED Staff Reporters
Amon BECKLES was a star reggae dancer with dreams of going professional, a daddy to an 18-month-old daughter, and a Central Tech student on the brink of adult life.
To his four younger siblings, who grew up in awe of everything from his PlayStation and basketball prowess to his addiction to mayonnaise "sangwiches", he was a family centrepiece.
"He was a role model in my life," one brother said.
The likeable 18-year-old's dreams were cut short Friday when he was shot in the neck just outside the Toronto West Seventh-day Adventist Church on Albion Rd. where he had come to mourn his best friend, Jamal HEMMINGS, 17, his reggae partner and a homicide victim.
Nadia BECKLES, Amon's mother, was in the church when she heard gunshots. "I didn't know it was my son," she said. "I just heard somebody say his name."
A day later, she's planning for his funeral.
"I want them to know his death will not go in vain. He died as a man. He died as a friend."
BECKLES's family, gathered to mourn their own in the cramped living room of his grandmother's west Toronto house last night, spoke out on the condition none of their names be used. But not because they're scared. "We are handling it in our own way," said an aunt. "I don't know what to think right now. I'm in shock."
Even in his absence, BECKLES brought laughter to his family, many of whom grew up dancing at his side in a group run by two aunts called No Mercy.
"We'd dance in the gym, outside, in the back streets, everywhere," said one of BECKLES's cousins. "We loved to dance. We'd do it instead of doing nothing. We're still close as a family. Since the death happened, we're just..." she trailed off.
The teen was with her cousin at HEMMINGS's funeral. She said HEMMINGS was "pretty much a part of our family" and grew up dancing reggae with them.
"Jamal and Amon were best Friends; wherever Jamal was, you'd find Amon. They were like brothers," said Jamal's father, Michael HEMMINGS.
BECKLES was with HEMMINGS the night of November 9 when HEMMINGS was fatally shot, said Det. Sgt. Mario DITOMMASO. Just over a week later, BECKLES himself became a homicide statistic -- number 69 for the year -- gunned down outside the church where he'd gone to mourn his friend.
"Friends of his were trying to give him cardio-pulmonary resuscitation," said Const. Ewan MacLEOD, who arrived on scene just before 1 p.m. Friday.
Minutes before Pastor Andrew KING began the funeral service, he said he was told "shooters are in the church."
Even though KING knew there could be violence, he decided not to call police on advice from members of a community housing group who gave him the grim news, he told the Star.
"Two people from the community housing group came up and whispered to me that shooters were in the church," KING said yesterday outside a church service held at a nearby high school while forensic identification officers finished their probe of his Seventh-day Adventist Church.
He said he and the housing workers spoke about what to do. "They advised me not to call the police. I was apprehensive."
But KING thought they would all be safe inside the church. "We were terrified of the situation but we put our safety in the Lord Jesus Christ and we were protected.
"At the end of the service I realized there were guns in the church, more than I'd like to know. At lot of people were in there packing (guns)."
Suddenly the church filled with "popping noises," the sound of gunfire, the pastor recalled. "All of a sudden there was pandemonium. We realized someone had been gunned down outside the church.
"We asked everyone to lie down quietly inside the sanctuary and not to move. We didn't know what was going on outside," he said. "I was looking at a casket in front of me. I realized there's another dead person outside the front of the church."
Det. Colin RAY said KING should have called police. "If he knew ahead of time there were guns in the church -- guns can only lead to disaster -- he should have called police."
BECKLES's grandmother said police "failed my grand_son. They can't correct that failure. He's dead.
"Anybody with any kind of sense at all would know there should have been somebody (from the police) there. In my opinion they did not serve and protect my grand_son."
Police Chief Bill Blair said BECKLES had spoken to homicide officers about HEMMINGS's slaying, but said police had no reason to believe the man was at any risk. "There was no indication that he was attending that funeral service or that he was at any risk, otherwise steps would have been taken."
Blair's spokesman Mark Pugash could not say if police will attend BECKLES's funeral. "Assessments are made in each case on what is necessary. Clearly one of our greatest concerns... is protecting public safety."
BECKLES's family said yesterday they believe he died simply because he knew what happened the night HEMMINGS was shot.
"They've got who they wanted," BECKLES's grandmother said, adding she does not know if her grand_son knew the shooter's identity. But she did offer one guarantee: "There was absolutely no gang activity. None."
Police confirmed yesterday that BECKLES was a "potential material witness" to HEMMINGS's killing. But DITOMMASO said he was more than a witness: police had also been looking into BECKLES's own activities. He was known to police and was "the subject of an ongoing investigation," DITOMMASO said, adding the teen was interviewed once after HEMMINGS's death.
"His information was not very accurate," DITOMASSO said.
"If he had been more forthcoming to police, it's entirely possible the people responsible for the original homicide (of HEMMINGS) would have been arrested," said Pugash.
Although the shooting occurred in the heart of Crips gang territory DITOMMASO said the death was not gang related.
DITOMMASO said police have narrowed witnesses' descriptions to a single suspect. He was described as wearing a three-quarter-length blue, hooded coat, a dark baseball cap and dark pants.

Joe SIMIANA, 52: Lived to ride
Joe SIMIANA loved his family, his job as a cop, and his motorcycles
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
There was no way any of Joe SIMIANA's Friends or family were going to ride in his funeral procession in a limo. That would be disrespectful to the big-hearted cop from Peel Region. So they pulled up to the church November 2 in a thunderous wave of 15 motorcycles, ridden by fellow police officers and his family.
His wife Laurie THIBEAULT rode in his pickup, the burgundy and pewter 2000 Chevy 1500 with the extended cab. He got it three years ago, finally, after years of driving clunkers. Every time he took Laurie and their 5-year-old son Augustus for a ride in it, he'd turn to her and say "I love this truck" as soon as he'd hit the highway.
She rode in it to the funeral service with the windows down, so she could hear the thunder of the honour guard as she was going down the road. Her husband had loved motorcycles, especially the Moto Guzzi manufactured by Italy's oldest motorcycle maker.
SIMIANA had three of those, including the 1972 model he'd been restoring for the past two years.
"He wasn't very mechanical," said his brother John, who is.
But he was the centre of laughter, the first son in a sprawling, loving, bike-riding Maltese family of eight kids who grew up in Oshawa listening to motorcycle stories. "We were raised on stories of the war and motorcycles," said Veronica LARKIN, Joe SIMIANA's sister.
Like the one their grandfather rode in World War I. And the German-owned Moto Guzzi captured in Libya and sold to their father, Joe, by a British officer after World War 2. That motorcycle stayed in Malta when their parents immigrated to Canada in 1950.
In 1988 the three SIMIANA sons got together to get the motorcycle over here for their dad. Joe did the letter-writing. Negotiations were tricky because the Maltese government had its eye on it for its wartime museum, but the family wanted it for their dad.
In the huge clan -- as of last summer there are 37 grandchildren it was Joe SIMIANA who was the life of every party, the prankster, the kind of guy who had to race with the kids -- and beat them. They have a videotape of a race in which SIMIANA, neck and neck with his nephew Johnny, caught his nephew's foot to cross the finish line first.
He'd put a Cabbage Patch doll in a baby's snowsuit and hurl it across the room. "Here, catch," he'd say to his horrified mother, who thought it was one of her grandchildren.
A father to four girls, as well as Augustus, he was adored by his nephews and nieces. "I'm the master of disaster," he'd say, then start an arm wrestling contest, or sock-swapping, or race everyone into the lake, even though he was a lousy swimmer.
"All our brothers and sisters, their faces light up when they talk about their relationship with Joe," said his younger brother, John. "He walked on water for a lot of us."
In high school SIMIANA broke the Ontario high jump record; he was also a good baseball, football and hockey player. When he was 18, he was in a devastating motorcycle accident. "Just a couple of weeks after that accident with a cast on his hip he was gone on his motorcycle," said John. "He loved riding anywhere, anytime."
But he was a careful rider, who always rode in full safety gear.
He became a police officer right after high school. It's what he always wanted to do.
"In his mind being a cop was like being a Boy Scout and being able to do a good deed every day," said his wife, Laurie.
He was the kind of guy who shovelled his neighbours' driveways and raked their leaves.
His work ethic was legendary -- routinely he'd show up for his shift 45 minutes early. He never took a lunch. In one 10-year period he never took a sick day. He met Laurie, his second wife, when he was investigating a case with the fraud squad; he worked in the youth bureau, in intelligence, did a stint in homicide, and loved being a uniformed patrol sergeant.
"He was a great investigator," said Const. Steve KING, who worked with SIMIANA for years both in the youth and fraud squads. "He liked to get the bad guy. He would work until he got him."
He also liked to tease his partner. KING remembered coming back to their squad car after picking up some fraud documents to find his lunch neatly laid out on the front seat, with one bite taken out of the sandwich. "Just making sure it was safe to eat," SIMIANA would say with a grin.
SIMIANA bested KING's retaliatory joke on him -- KING had laughingly signed a photo of himself with "To Joe, All the best in your career" -- by whiting out the word Joe and selling personalized versions of it to fellow officers, lawyers, even judges, for a dime each as their membership into the "Steve King fan club."
Then he went one step further by printing and tacking up posters urging people to come out and meet Steve KING throughout the Aylmer courthouse where King was testifying.
A diagnosis of a rare viral illness two years ago forced SIMIANA into a no-stress desk job, but he was recovering well and had just received the medical clearance he needed to get back to what he believed was his real work in policing. He was going to start a new posting at the start of the next week.
On his way downstairs to lift weights in their Burlington home, he told Laurie he felt great and was thrilled about his new posting.
She told him she was proud of him whatever he did and that she loved him. He told her he loved her too.
Seconds later she heard his laboured breathing and raced downstairs to find he had collapsed. He died in her arms of a heart attack. He was 52; he had been a police officer for 31 years.
More than 1,000 people came to his funeral, including Peel police Chief Noël CATNEY, who had known SIMIANA for years. During the service, in a spontaneous gesture, CATNEY bent over Augustus, told him he was an honorary policeman and gave him his father's police hat.
Everybody says Augustus is just like his father, the same grin, the same fearless goofiness, the same deep-down pride. The boy took the hat, turned to his father's casket, and saluted.
Joe SIMIANA's Moto Guzzi is now at his brother John's house. "It's immaculate," he said. "A gorgeous piece."
Eventually, John SIMIANA said, he wants to organize a memorial motorcycle ride for his brother, with the proceeds going to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. So that someone will always ride the Moto Guzzi for Joe.
