LESTER, Murray David (November 27, 1925-December 24, 2005)
Passed away peacefully at home, at the age of 80, after a brief but valiant battle with cancer. Murray will be greatly missed by his beloved wife of 50 years, Dr. Eva P. LESTER, his three children, Kenneth (Trudy,) Jason and Nina (Larry LOWENSTEIN,) and his six grandchildren, Allison, Devin, Nicholas, Julie, Maya and Anna Lisa. He is also survived by his sisters Celia and Evelyn of California, Natalie of Nevada, brothers Melvin of New Jersey and Eddie of California, and numerous nephews and nieces. Murray was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, the eldest of six siblings. With great strength and determination, Murray overcame early adversities to become a successful professional in Montreal. A decorated veteran of World War 2 and the Korean conflict, Murray was awarded an appointment at West Point and achieved the rank of Captain in the U.S. Army. After leaving the service, he used the G.I. Bill to attend and graduate from Cornell University in 1949 with a degree in civil engineering. His first job as an engineer was in Buffalo, New York, where he met and married Eva PAPAMATHEAKI who was then a medical resident in psychiatry on a Fullbright Scholarship. In 1956, shortly after the birth of their first child, Kenneth, they moved to Montreal, where Murray had accepted a position at Alcan Aluminum Inc. Montreal became Murray and Eva's home and the birthplace of their other children, Jason and Nina. Murray worked at Alcan Aluminum Inc. for close to 30 years. His expertise in the production of energy for the smelting of aluminum took him to Alcan's operations throughout the world. He rose to Vice-President, Energy, at Alcan and he also served a term as Chair of the World Energy Congress. Upon retirement from Alcan in 1985, Murray transformed his longstanding fascination with the stock market and investing into his next career as an investment counsellor. This became his true passion. In 1992, he was joined by his son, Kenneth. As business partners over the succeeding 14 years, Murray and Ken built Murray Lester Investment Counsel into a trusted and successful investment firm. In 1989, Murray was appointed Adjunct Professor at McGill University teaching Applied Investments. When Ken, whose degrees are in History and Education, joined Murray he was also appointed Adjunct Professor and continues to teach the course. Murray was an avid sportsman and fan. Tennis was his favorite and he continued to play until his last month. He had numerous other interests including chess, bridge, jazz, Humphrey Bogart films and, of course, the stock market. His sharp intellect and vibrant sense of humour were always appreciated by his family, business associates, and a wide circle of Friends. He was a caring and devoted husband, father, brother and friend. He also took enormous pride in Eva's accomplishments as a psychoanalyst of international renown. A private family service was recently observed, with a memorial luncheon gathering celebrating his life to be held on Friday, January 27. More details to be announced. In lieu of flowers or donations, Murray would have encouraged Friends and acquaintances to make a contribution to a child or grandchild's Registered Education Savings Plan.

CARR, Patricia (BURROWS) (March 12, 1940-October 17, 2005)
It is with great sadness that we announce that after a long, courageous battle with cancer, Patricia CARR died peacefully with family at her side at Sunnybrook Hospital. She was a devoted, loving mother and mother-in-law to Wendy, Peter and Leah CARR. Cherished, inspirational Nana to grandchildren Lindsay and Kelsey LOWES, Joshua and Caitlyn CARR. Tricia will be sadly missed by her Aunt Janet, brother Peter, and sister-in-law Elizabeth and their family in England. Tricia's passion for people was always demonstrated through the generous giving of her time, her energy, and a genuine sense of caring. This was evident in all aspects of her life. As a mother she loved, inspired, guided and supported her children. As a Nana, she loved unconditionally and guided with a caring hand. As a sister, she loved and truly cared. As a friend, she listened and encouraged. As a doctor, every patient was special. As a counsellor, she listened and guided those in need. The passion that she had for gardening has left a lasting reminder in many of our gardens and all of our hearts. We Remember In the rising of the sun, And in its going down, We remember her. In the blowing of the wind, And the chill of the winter, We remember her. In the opening of buds, And in the rebirth of spring, We remember her. In the blueness of the sky, And in the warmth of summer, We remember her. In the rustling of the leaves, And the beauty of autumn, We remember her. In the beginning of the year, And when it ends, We remember her. When we are weary, And in need of strength, We remember her. When we are lost, And sick at heart, We remember her. When we have joys, We yearn to share, We remember her. So long as we live, She too shall live. For she is now a part of us. As we remember her. We cannot say goodbye to our mom, nana and best friend so we will keep you close in our hearts and remember the great times we have shared. Thank you to all of the caring, compassionate staff at Sunnybrook Hospital. Your support was greatly appreciated. A service to celebrate her life will be held in the chapel of the Egan Funeral Home, 203 Queen Street South (Hwy. 50), Bolton (1-800-853-1977) on Saturday morning, October 22 at 11 o'clock. In memory of Patricia, and her battle with cancer, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Condolences for the family may be offered at www.eganfuneralhome.com

GERTLER, Jeffrey Lee
January 18, 2005
After a recurrence of brain cancer, despite the best of care at the Clinique de Genolier, Switzerland, and the constant support of family, colleagues and Friends, his courage and morale undiminished, on January 18, 2005 he was taken from his wife, Ann Stewart GERTLER their sons Marin (fiancée Rocio LASTRAS) and Joshua; his parents, Maynard and Ann Straus GERTLER; brothers and sisters-in-law, Michael (JoAnn JAFFE,) Alfred (Kathryn MacRAE,) Franklin (Catherine OLIVER) and Edward (Mary-Jo LOW/LOWE/LOUGH;) sisters-in-law, Cynthia VON MAERESTETTEN and Rowena STEWARD/STEWART/STUART; mother-in-law, Thisbe STEWARD/STEWART/STUART nieces, Lisa and Jardena; nephews, Mark, Maxim, Will, Leo, Nicholas, John Nathaniel and Theo; beloved family member, Doris WINKLER and his extended family in Ottawa, Toronto, New York, California, England and Scotland who survive him to celebrate his 51 productive years. He was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, among the Plain People, where his college-teaching parents chose to farm. But his education was to begin at Darwin House, Cambridge, England (when they resumed research interrupted by service in the wartime administrations and army (Maynard) of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman) -- to be continued largely at St. George's School, Montreal. His further development was associated with training institutes in non-violence and peace research, fostered by the Canadian Peace Research Institute and sponsored by the Canadian Friends Service Committee and the Canadian National Commission of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. He was a "resource person" for the 1970 and 1971 high school peace workshops which took place at Grindstone Island on Big Rideau Lake, Portland, Ontario, the former summer home of Admiral Sir Charles Edmund KINGSMILL (first director of the Royal Canadian Navy) and his family, and loaned by his heirs for that purpose. Jeffrey's professional skills were acquired at Swarthmore College, Pennsylvania, by a B.A., with emphasis on contemporary political economy, history and French (Université de Grenoble), by study at the Institute of Comparative International Law, Paris, on Regulation of International Business Transactions, by a J.D. at the University of San Diego, California, an LLM from Georgetown University, Washington, D.C., and by work with the Commonwealth Secretariat, London, the U.S. International Trade Commission, and the Office of the United States Trade Representative, among others. A member of the California and District of Columbia bars and of the American Society for International Law, he entered his latest field of activity through applications to United Nations and United Nations-affiliated agencies. Invited to Geneva by the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, he was employed by them in 1988, and stayed on when the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade evolved into the World Trade Organization in 1995. As Senior Counsellor in the Legal Affairs Division, he was active in the elaboration of dispute settlement procedures, in panels pertaining to the admission of countries, such as China, to the World Trade Organization, in work, duty travel and conferences on four continents, including university-sponsored speaking engagements on various aspects of globalization: human rights, labour, environment and living conditions, as well as trade. Jeffrey gravitated toward work in the public interest by an early internship with the Environmental Defense Fund of Washington, D.C., and by a spell as Special Assistant to the Rector of the United Nations University of Tokyo. Not incidentally, his two non-professional affiliations in 1988 at the time of joining the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade were with the Lawyers Alliance for Nuclear Arms Control, and Friends of the Earth. He delighted in sailing off Norfolk, England, on Lakes Ontario and Champlain, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, the Chesapeake with his wife Ann and boys, from their first home at Shady Side, near Annapolis, Maryland, and Lake Geneva (Léman). He loved life and knew well what to do with it, was an enthusiastic skiier and swimmer, an accomplished photographer, a keen gardener and family farmer, in Ontario, and an excellent cook. At various times he played the recorder, violin and guitar. Family meant the world to him, and his children were his greatest joy. Facing final illness, his supreme regret was the prospect that he might not be around to share in their lives, to support them, and to help celebrate their accomplishments. The warmest of farewells were given him at the Temple de Genolier above Lake Geneva, January 24, on a sunny day, emblazoned by fresh snow and invigorated by the mountain air. In addition to his wife, sons and brothers, some 150 Friends and colleagues were in attendance, many from the World Trade Organization, the United Nations family, the International School of Geneva, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, Femmes Pour la Paix, and the International Peace Bureau. Following cremation, Jeffrey's remains will be interred near his home in Divonne les Bains, France. Contact with the family in Montreal may be had through Franklin GERTLER, at Aldred Building, 507 Place d'Armes, Suite 1200, Montreal, Québec, Canada H2Y 2W8; telephone (514) 842-0748; e-mail: franklin@gertlerlex.ca, or Maynard and Ann GERTLER, at 482 Strathcona Avenue, Westmount, Québec, Canada H3Y 2X1; telephone (514) 933-7913; fax (514) 933-1702 e-mail: ann.maynard.gertler@videotron.ca (and Box #58, Williamstown, Ontario, Canada K0C 2J0; telephone (613) 347-3505.

LOW/LOWE/LOUGH o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.toronto_star 2005-11-09 published
He made his mark on city and nation
By WARREN Gerard, Special To The Star
Beland HONDERICH rose from plain beginnings to become one of the most influential Canadians of his day, using his power as publisher of Canada's largest newspaper to influence the agenda in politics and business at every level.
At the same time he set new standards for informed, in-depth, responsible reporting.
HONDERICH, publisher of the Toronto Star for 22 of his 52 years at the paper, died in Vancouver at 86 yesterday following a stroke.
HONDERICH was a fiercely private man, almost reclusive, but that didn't keep him from being an impatient perfectionist, a leader whose principal ethic was work.
The Star was his life, his passion.
Among his many honours, and one he treasured, was his election in 1986 to the News Hall of Fame by journalists across Canada for leading "Canadian newspapers into a new direction, taking readers backstage to explore and explain the current events that shaped their lives."
HONDERICH left the publisher's office in 1988, going on to become board chairman of the newspaper and its parent company, Torstar Corp. He retired from that position in 1994, but maintained an office across from the newsroom on the fifth floor at One Yonge St. until 1999.
Beland Hugh HONDERICH was born in Kitchener on November 25, 1918, and grew up in the nearby village of Baden. He was proud of his pioneer roots -- Mennonites from Germany who found religious freedom in Waterloo County in the early 1800s.
"My father was a man who stood for religious freedom, and I am proud to follow in his footsteps," HONDERICH once said.
His father, John HONDERICH, was ostracized in the staunchly traditional Mennonite community because he and young Beland went to hear a speaker from another Amish sect. The shunning, as it was called, meant that other Reform Mennonites were forbidden to sit down to eat with them or to shake their hands.
Nor did his father quite fit in with his thrifty, hard-working neighbours in other ways. A sometime beekeeper, homespun village philosopher, printer and pamphleteer for liberal causes, he was "not a very good provider" in a community where work was next to godliness.
His mother, Rae, was the family's main breadwinner. She was the local telephone operator, a job that included the use of a train station in Baden which served as a home for the HONDERICHs and their six children. HONDERICH recalled that the family never went hungry, but there was little money for anything but food.
He gathered coal along the railway tracks to heat their home and carried water in summer to gangs of workers repairing the roads. In the mornings, he worked around the Canadian National Railway station, sweeping and cleaning up for 40 cents a day.
Despite winning a regional debating championship with his sister Ruth -- they defended the proposition that the Soviet way of life was superior to the American way -- he struggled to pass high school entrance examinations.
HONDERICH didn't do well in high school. And it didn't help that he had to hitchhike 16 kilometres to and from school in Kitchener. As a result, his attendance was spotty and his marks were poor. He was demoted in his second year to a commercial course "where at least I learned to type."
Discouraged, he dropped out of school and got a job as a farmhand at the beginning of the Great Depression, much to his mother's displeasure. "You can do better than that," he recalled her saying on more than one occasion.
The farm job didn't last. His introduction to reporting came about because his father was hard of hearing and took his son to public meetings and political rallies to take notes. It taught the young HONDERICH, who was later to battle deafness himself, to write quickly and accurately.
He inherited a Kitchener-Waterloo Record paper route from one of his brothers, which led him to become the paper's correspondent for Baden at 10 cents a column inch. He created news by organizing a softball team and covering its games for the paper.
When he was 17, fires on successive nights destroyed two barns owned by a prominent Baden farmer. Arson was suspected and the young HONDERICH's coverage so impressed his editors that they offered him a tryout as a cub reporter in Kitchener at $15 a week.
He showed up for work in a mismatched jacket and pants and with his two front teeth missing from a tough hockey game the night before. He didn't shine as a reporter.
The publisher, W.J. MOTZ, concluded after a week that HONDERICH was in the wrong line of work and told city editor Art LOW/LOWE/LOUGH to fire him. But LOW/LOWE/LOUGH saw something in the youngster and persuaded MOTZ to give him a second chance.
LOW/LOWE/LOUGH worked HONDERICH hard. He gave him an assignment each evening to go along with his day job. Ed HAYES, who worked at the Record in those days, recalled in an interview that HONDERICH (or "Bee" as he was nicknamed) was determined to succeed.
"Each reporter was supposed to turn in a story every afternoon at the end of his shift. Bee wasn't satisfied with that. He'd turn in two, three or more.
"He was the darling of the city desk."
As time went by, he improved, becoming more and more confident. He was also developing into a perfectionist. So much so, in fact, that he'd bet an ice cream with an assistant city editor that he would find nothing that needed to be changed in a HONDERICH story.
At first, he recalled, it cost him a lot of ice cream cones, but later he rarely had to pay off.
In those early days at the Record, HONDERICH knew he had a country bumpkin image. So when he had saved enough money, he went to a quality menswear store and asked the manager to show him how to dress. He bought a dark pin-striped suit, complete with vest, and that look became his uniform in life.
A fellow staffer at the Record recalled HONDERICH borrowing a bike from a delivery boy and speeding off to an assignment in his pin-striped suit.
And co-workers described him as a loner who rarely headed for the beer parlour with the boys after work, though he was known to sip a scotch on special occasions. Mostly, he went to Norm Jones' restaurant for a milkshake.
Though he spent most of his time working, he taught Sunday school at a Presbyterian church, and served as secretary for a minor hockey league.
This involvement brought him into contact with Milt DUNNELL, the legendary Star sports columnist, who had made a name for himself at the Stratford Beacon Herald before heading for Toronto. He told HONDERICH that the Star was looking for reporters to replace those who had enlisted to serve in World War 2. HONDERICH, who had been rejected by the Royal Canadian Air Force and merchant marine because of poor eyesight and hearing, applied to the Star in 1943 and was hired as a reporter for $35 a week.
He was proud that the Kitchener city council gave him a vote of thanks for his fair reporting. And MOTZ, the publisher who thought he would never make it in the newspaper business, begged him not to go.
Stepping into the grandly marbled lobby of the Star's building at 80 King St. W., HONDERICH recalled that he was "scared as hell." But he was in the right place. This was the world of Joe ATKINSON.
As publisher, Joseph E. ATKINSON had guided the paper through most of the first half-century and was seen by friend and foe alike as one of the country's leading reformers. It turned out that the publisher and his new employee had some things in common.
Both had come from large, impoverished, God-fearing families in small-town Ontario, and quit school early to put food on the table. "One thing I had in common with Joe ATKINSON," HONDERICH recalled, "is that I knew need."
There was a major difference, however. ATKINSON was a star of Canadian journalism in 1899 when the new owners of the Toronto Evening Star hired him at 34 to run the paper. HONDERICH was 24 when he arrived at the paper, an unproven asset at the time.
But he didn't take long to prove himself. His work was soon noticed by Harry C. HINDMARSH, ATKINSON's son-in-law and the man who ran the newsroom.
HINDMARSH sent HONDERICH to Saskatchewan for the election that brought Tommy Douglas and the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (later to become the New Democratic Party) to power in 1944.
The next year he was sent back to do a progress report on North America's first socialist government. His stories were so enthusiastically some thought naively -- positive that the Saskatchewan government asked permission to reprint them.
They also caught the eye of Joe ATKINSON, whose reform ideas were at home with the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation's, although he never endorsed the party at election time. HONDERICH was marked as someone worth watching. He was asked to fill in as an editorial writer, the newspaper job he enjoyed most of all.
Some critics said HONDERICH's writing lacked flair or style. But it was clear. He explained complicated matters in simple, accurate terms. His idea was to dive right into a story, delivering the promise of the headline in the first paragraph.
In his reporting career, HONDERICH covered a wide variety of assignments, collecting his share of scoops, enough to impress HINDMARSH. In 1946, he called in HONDERICH, congratulated him on a story, then remarked, "Oh, by the way, the financial editor left today. I'd like you to start as financial editor on Monday."
"But I don't know the difference between a stock and a bond," HONDERICH replied.
"You'll learn," HINDMARSH said.
HONDERICH told HINDMARSH he would take the job on the condition that he be allowed to go back to feature writing if it didn't work out.
"If you don't make a go of it, you'll go out the door," HINDMARSH said in a menacing way.
It goes without saying that HONDERICH made a go of it.
One of the first things he noticed from his new desk was a tailor at work in a building across King St. He decided his business section would write for that tailor, for the ordinary person.
His News Hall of Fame citation noted: "He led in turning the writing and presentation of financial news into a readable subject in terms that interest the average reader." He criticized the stock exchange, questioned banking methods, recommended profit sharing, and supported credit unions and other co-operatives.
But when there were major stories to be covered, HINDMARSH often took HONDERICH out of his financial department and sent him all over the globe -- to Newfoundland on the eve of its joining Canada, to Argentina where press freedom was under attack, to Asia with Prime Minister Louis St. Laurent for the first round-the-world trip taken by a Canadian prime minister, and to Britain for the funeral of George VI.
In 1948, HONDERICH, along with 12 other employees, chartered the first Canadian local of the American Newspaper Guild. As president of the union, he signed the first contract with the Star.
Some members of the union were suspicious, however, thinking that as financial editor he was "a company stooge" trying to make sure the Guild didn't fall into the hands of disgruntled left-wingers.
They weren't aware, however, that he knew all about bad working conditions because he had done both day and night assignments as a young reporter in Kitchener.
He served three terms as Guild president and helped win better pay and working conditions. Later, on the other side of the negotiating table, he continued to believe in the need for an organized newsroom, although that view was severely tested in a bitter strike in HONDERICH had become a major force in the newsroom when ATKINSON died in 1948 after nearly 50 years as publisher of a racy paper with principles.
His death, however, created a crisis at the paper. ATKINSON's will had left the Star to a charitable foundation to be administered by his trustees. However, the Ontario Conservative government passed the Charitable Gifts Act, which said no charity could own more than 10 per cent of a business.
The government may have viewed the will as an attempt to escape death duties, but more likely the legislation was an attempt to muzzle the Star, a liberal thorn in the Tory side.
Nevertheless, it became a distinct possibility the paper might be sold to outside interests. Bidders, including beer baron E.P. TAILOR/TAYLOR, were lining up for a chance to buy what had become Canada's most profitable daily.
The Star was granted stays of execution however, and HINDMARSH, the founder's son-in-law, succeeded ATKINSON until his own death in 1956. In the HINDMARSH years, the paper seemed to lose direction and much of its fairness, particularly in the reporting of politics. The paper's reputation was going downhill.
Meanwhile, HONDERICH had been appointed editor-in-chief in 1955 and a couple of years later he was appointed to the board, after HINDMARSH's sudden death. It put him in the position of becoming an owner of the paper.
Walter GORDON, an accountant who was to become finance minister in Lester Pearson's Liberal government, worked out a plan for the trustees to buy the Star by putting up $1 million among the six of them, including HONDERICH. The paper was valued at $25.5 million.
At the time, the sale price was the most ever paid in Canada for a newspaper, and it turned out to be a steal. Under HONDERICH's leadership, Torstar, the Star's parent company, would become a more than $1 billion enterprise over the next 30-plus years.
For readers and the staff, the HONDERICH years had begun, although he didn't take over as publisher until 1966. Immediately, however, he went about remaking the paper. Headlines didn't scream any more, and the silly and the sensational disappeared from the paper.
HONDERICH was putting his stamp on the Star. Reporting only the facts wasn't good enough. He demanded thorough backgrounding of stories to make them understandable to the average reader. Or, as he said, for "my barber."
He created a great newsroom that included sports columnist DUNNELL and leading Canadian writers such as Pierre BERTON, Peter NEWMAN, Charles TEMPLETON and Nathan COHEN, as well as award-winning cartoonist Duncan MacPHERSON.
HONDERICH returned the Star to the principles of Joseph E. ATKINSON, including a reform-centred editorial policy. Unemployment, affordable housing, adequate welfare benefits, medicare, pensions, minority rights, the need for an independent Canada -- these became subjects he demanded be dealt with on a daily basis.
In one of his rare public appearances, he told a group of editors in 1961 that "the basic function of a newspaper is to inform, to tell the public what is happening in the community, in the nation and in the world. You will notice I did not use the word, entertain." He felt that television had made entertainment a secondary function for newspapers. "How much better then, to concentrate on what we can do best, and that is to inform the public."
The change was most evident in the Star's treatment of politics and economics. The background feature gradually became commonplace in North American journalism, and a poll of U.S. editors rated the Star one of the world's 10 top foreign papers.
Critics of the HONDERICH way -- many of them highly placed in the paper -- couldn't wait for HONDERICH's grey, humourless Star to fail, but they were doomed to disappointment, just as surely as the Star's competitor -- the unchanging Telegram -- was doomed to extinction.
Not only did the Star's circulation grow, so did its profits.
Honesty and integrity were words that most people associated with HONDERICH. But many on his staff found him a demanding taskmaster, an uncompromising and often difficult man to deal with. There was never any doubt that Beland HONDERICH was the boss. He wasn't one for chit-chat.
Early in his career as publisher, he all but cut himself off from the social whirl of movers and shakers. He admitted to becoming almost reclusive after finding himself challenged at social functions and parties to defend Star policies he felt needed no defence, especially since he had put them into place.
But he never felt that way about the public at large. The so-called Little Guy could get him on the phone more easily than a celebrity could. His home number was in the book. And in the days when the Star was an afternoon paper, it wasn't unusual for an evening editor to get a call from HONDERICH, who in turn had received an irate call at home from a reader whose paper hadn't been delivered.
The paper would be delivered by taxi, and the taxi company was instructed to report to the editor the moment the paper had arrived. Then HONDERICH would phone the reader to make sure he was satisfied.
The first part of his 12-hour working day was spent poring over page proofs, quarrelling about leads of stories, questioning something in the 25th paragraph, asking for more background, and demanding follow-ups.
He was articulate, often painfully so for the person at the other end of his complaints. His editors took great pleasure when he demanded "antidotal" leads. He meant anecdotal leads.
Notes with the heavy-handed BHH signature on them rained from his office.
The difficulty everyone had in pleasing him and the way he prowled the newsroom won him the nickname "The Beast." And he was called "Drac" by some editors who thought he, like the vampire, sucked the staff dry.
When the paper departed from what the reader had come to believe was a Star tradition, he took to the typewriter to explain the reasons himself. In 1972, for example, he put his initials on an editorial that explained why the Star was supporting Progressive Conservative Robert Stanfield over Liberal Pierre Trudeau in the federal election.
In his rare public appearances, the nasal flatness of his voice often disguised the passion he felt for a subject. However, he was an effective spokesman for the causes he championed. In defending the Star's strong stand on economic nationalism, he told the Canadian Club it was based on the need to preserve the differences between Canada and the United States.
"I think our society tends to be more compassionate, somewhat less extreme and certainly less violent," he said. "We put more emphasis on basic human needs such as health insurance and pensions."
He warned that increased U.S. ownership of Canadian resources would endanger our ability to maintain those differences.
In a 1989 speech at Carleton University in Ottawa, he caused a stir when he argued that objectivity in newspapers was neither possible nor desirable.
"No self-respecting newspaper deliberately distorts or slants the news to make it conform to its own point of view," he said. "But you cannot publish a newspaper without making value judgments on what news you select to publish and how you present it in the paper.
"And these value judgments reflect a view of society -- a point of view if you will -- that carries as much weight, if not more, than what is said on the editorial page."
Just as ATKINSON used the news pages to popularize reform ideas, HONDERICH used them as a weapon in his own causes.
One example was his reaction to a document leaked to him outlining then-prime minister Brian Mulroney's government strategy on free trade. It said the communications strategy "should rely less on educating the public than getting across the message that the free trade initiative is a good idea -- in other words a selling job."
HONDERICH made sure all aspects of free trade were put under the kind of scrutiny the government wanted to avoid, particularly the possible effects on employment and social benefits.
Simon REISMAN, the bellicose chief trade negotiator, accused HONDERICH of personally waging a vendetta against free trade. He said HONDERICH used the Star "in a manner that contradicts every sense of fairness and decency in the newspaper business."
In reply, the unrepentant publisher said: "The role of a newspaper, as I see it, is to engage in the full and frank dissemination of the news and opinion from the perspective of its values and particular view of society. It should report the news fairly and accurately, reflect all pertinent facts and opinions and not only what the official establishment thinks and says."
As publisher, he demonstrated an impressive business savvy for a man who once said he hardly knew the difference between a stock and a bond. In 1972, he moved the paper to new quarters at One Yonge St.
And later, in his position as chief executive officer of the parent company, Torstar Corp., he acquired Harlequin Enterprises, the world's largest publisher of romance books, and 15 community newspapers to add to the 14 the Star already owned in the Toronto area.
At the same time, HONDERICH still was very much making his mark in journalism. He was the first in Canada to introduce a bureau of accuracy and to appoint an ombudsman to represent the reader in the newsroom. In a wider sense, he was the main force behind the establishment of the Ontario Press Council, where readers can take their complaints to an independent body.
As well as his election to the News Hall of Fame, he was honoured in other ways, receiving doctors of law degrees from Wilfrid Laurier and York universities, and the Order of Canada in 1987.
HONDERICH was married three times, the last time on New Year's Day 2000 to Rina WHELAN of Vancouver, the city where he lived until his death. He had two sons: John, who followed in his father's footsteps to become publisher of the Star, and David, an entrepreneur and one daughter, Mary, a philosophy and English teacher. He also had six grandchildren.
Even into his eighties, HONDERICH exercised daily and loved to play bridge, golf and fish.
Charles E. PASCAL, executive director of the Atkinson Charitable Foundation, recalled golfing with HONDERICH after he had entered his eighties. PASCAL was in his mid-fifties.
"I expected to be slowed down by playing with a couple of guys in their seventies and one in his eighties," PASCAL said. "Bee, as with everything else, played golf with determination, focus and tenacity. I was quite impressed with his golfing. He was very competitive."
After HONDERICH stepped down as publisher in 1988, and as a director of Torstar in 1995, he lost none of his zeal for pursuing causes. He did this through the Atkinson Charitable Foundation and his own personal philanthropy.
"His role on our board was absolutely essential, forceful, radical," PASCAL said.
"I had the sense that the older he got he became more and more impatient. He was impatient, just impatient, about all that is yet to be done by governments and others to reduce the inequities for those who are disadvantaged through no fault of their own."
He was generous in his giving and, as was his character, he had no interest in public recognition or praise.
"He just had no time whatsoever for personal recognition," PASCAL recalled.
"I think he would have liked to have been around forever if for no other reason than to contribute more."
At HONDERICH's request, there will be a cremation, after which the family will hold a small private gathering to celebrate his life.
