Ted ARCAND, Diplomat: 1934-2005
Outspoken Canadian ambassador to Lebanon during the 1982 invasion by Israel was a 'hero in Beirut' and the last Western diplomat to leave
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, May 27, 2005, Page S7
Surveying the charred rubble of his West Beirut residence one July day in that wretched summer of 1982, Ted ARCAND pronounced, "This is the work of a child of Israel." It was a bit more than seven weeks into Israel's wrenching invasion of Lebanon and siege of Beirut and the Canadian ambassador's fifth-floor apartment in the seaside Muslim sector of the Lebanese capital had sustained heavy fire and blast damage when an Israeli jet attacked a building across the street.
It was "unbelievable that people are treated like this," Mr. ARCAND lamented, noting that 80 people had been killed in the raid. "So much for pinpoint bombing."
Israel's behaviour had disappointed him: "I always had an enormous admiration for the Israelis, their musicians, their men of science, which I try to think of despite my travels in south Lebanon," he told the Associated Press. "I have seen all the human misery... and I wonder where the Israel I knew has gone." To his detractors, Mr. ARCAND failed to understand Israel's plight, or didn't care and in a most undiplomatic fashion. Some charged that his remarks betrayed a glaring lack of impartiality and maybe even sympathy toward the Palestine Liberation Organization.
Others lauded him for sheltering over 100 Palestinian women and children in the Canadian embassy, and for his principled and singular courage, evidenced by the fact that he was the last high-level Western diplomat to leave West Beirut.
Why did he stay when he could have easily bugged out, probably with Ottawa's blessing? Partly because the Department of External Affairs, as it was then called, did not order him and his skeleton staff out of Beirut until August 2, 1982 -- nearly two months after the Israeli incursion began, and then only to the town of Jounieh, about 20 kilometres north of the capital -- but also because he had "a deep sense of duty," said his son, Jean-Louis, who was then just 17 and went through the ordeal with his parents.
"He was scandalized and shocked by what was going on. [But] people from his generation were profoundly idealistic Canadians, part of the Trudeau generation. He was a typical example of a francophone who did well by dint of the Trudeau years. These people really believed in their jobs and in representing their country."
His boss, then external affairs minister Mark MacGUIGAN, backed him up. "He was doing a great service for his country... for the cause of world peace," Mr. MacGUIGAN told the House of Commons in August of 1982, stressing that Mr. ARCAND was ordered out for his own safety. Indeed, just a few weeks earlier, the House unanimously adopted a resolution -- a very rare occurrence -- praising Mr. ARCAND for his "tireless dedication and unflinching devotion to duty."
Mr. ARCAND described Beirut as "a living hell... truly a scene from Dante's Inferno." With tears welling in his eyes, he said the destruction caused by Israel's land, sea and air bombardment, "would make Berlin of 1944 look like a tea party." He also criticized the early withdrawal of peacekeeping forces from West Beirut, saying the move was a major factor leading to the massacres in September of 1982 of at least 800 Palestinians, including many women and children, in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps at the hands of the Phalange, a Christian militia.
A mainstay of U.S. network newscasts, Mr. ARCAND once stuck his telephone out the window of his residence and asked the reporter on the line, "does that sound like a ceasefire to you?"
As Mr. MacGUIGAN wrote in his memoirs, Mr. ARCAND stayed behind in Beirut to assist those who needed visas and to help keep up the spirits of the populace. As a result, he "suffered Israeli indignities not visited on any other ambassador." Because he had to cross Israeli barricades to bring supplies into West Beirut, his car was stopped and searched repeatedly, despite the fact that it had diplomatic licence plates and flew the Canadian flag.
Such searches were "in total contravention of the Vienna accords on the treatment of diplomatic personnel. The Israeli government knew that and was aware of what was going on but was either unable or unwilling to bring [then General Ariel] Sharon and the military to heel," Mr. MacGUIGAN wrote.
In the end, the department persuaded Mr. MacGUIGAN to accept an "insincere letter of regret from [then Israeli prime minister Yitzhak] Shamir."
Mr. ARCAND was urged to stand his ground, at least until the order to move came through. That same day, one of two local embassy employees who had asked to stay for personal reasons was shot to death.
Two days later, Canada delivered a formal diplomatic protest to Tel Aviv, calling on Israel to stop its bombardment. "He was a hero in Beirut. The fact that he stayed made him an enormous hit with the citizens," said Peyton LYON, a foreign-affairs analyst and long-time critic of Israel who knew Mr. ARCAND from the Middle East Discussion Group, an Ottawa salon for retired diplomats. "But he never got the recognition he and his wife deserved for staying behind."
Born in the wheat-farming region of eastern Alberta, Mr. ARCAND studied history at Laval and McMaster universities. It was at the latter where he met wife, the English-born Jennifer GARNER- ASHMORE, whose family was scandalized that she married a devout Catholic.
A career diplomat who joined the foreign service in 1957, Mr. ARCAND had postings to Czechoslovakia, Cameroon, Tanzania, the Vatican and Denmark under his belt before being assigned as ambassador to Lebanon (with concurrent accreditation to Jordan and Syria) in 1979, in the thick of the country's civil war. Despite regular firefights between Muslim and Christian factions, car bombings and sniper attacks, "life was fairly agreeable," recalled his son, now an economist with the French government. "A lot of people simply adapted."
Mr. ARCAND was among the first Western diplomats to discern a groundswell of Islamic fundamentalism. Officially, Canada forbade contacts with the Palestine Liberation Organization at the time unofficially, related his son, Mr. ARCAND had extensive dealings with the organization, including with Yasser Arafat.
His son believes that mandarins in Ottawa assumed his father had gone soft on Palestinians. "That's why people tend to get transferred. You end up being more of a representative to people you are accredited to than of your own country."
Following the tumult of Lebanon, Mr. ARCAND was sent to Hungary and followed that with a four-year stint in Ottawa as chief of protocol. After that, he returned to the Holy See, this time as ambassador. He loved the job. "The Vatican for him was most efficient intelligence-gathering organization in the world," his son said. "It was pure political work."
Back in Ottawa for good in 1993, Mr. ARCAND did a series of jobs at External Affairs involving protocol and security but his heart wasn't in it. His wife died the same year, said his son: "He could not fathom serving abroad without her."
Théodore Jean ARCAND was born in Bonnyville, Alberta., on June 25, 1934, and died in Montreal on April 16, 2005, of a heart attack. He was 70. Besides his son, he leaves three sisters.

Harry J. BOYLE, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Broadcaster: Farmer's son from southwestern Ontario shook the soil off his feet to become a radio and television pioneer who shaped Canada's air waves, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, With files from Canadian Press, Monday, January 24, 2005 - Page S6
Broadcaster, playwright, novelist, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation executive and a former Chair of the Canadian and Radio Television Commission, Harry J. BOYLE was a huge influence on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio and television as a programmer, talent spotter (think Wayne and Shuster), broadcast boss and policy maker.
"He helped the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation become the link that held the country together," said novelist and radio producer Howard ENGEL. "The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, in my time [the 1950s-1970s] was like the railway a century earlier. It let people in Corner Brook know what was going on in Edmonton. He was very important that way in his writing and in his broadcasting."
Harry BOYLE was born on a farm in 1915 in southwestern Ontario. After graduating from Wingham High School and St. Jerome's College (now part of the University of Waterloo) he worked as a journalist for the Goderich Signal Star and a stringer for the London Free Press and the Globe and Mail.
He got his first job as a broadcaster in 1936 at Radio Station CKNX in Wingham, Ontario, the town later made famous as the birthplace and literary home of short-story writer Alice MUNRO. He left the radio station in 1941 and worked for a year at the Stratford Beacon-Herald before joining the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as a farm commentator in 1942. He quickly rose to become a network supervisor of features and director of the National Farm Radio Forum.
"He literally had an understanding of broadcasting and life from the grass roots up because he was a farmer," said playwright and Toronto cultural maven Mavor MOORE who was a colleague at Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio as far back as the 1940s. There were two Canadian programs that were way ahead of every other in the world in terms of the size of their collective audience audiences that would gather in halls and meeting places across the country to listen to radio, according to Mr. MOORE. One of them was the Citizen's Forum and the other was the Farm Forum under Mr. BOYLE's supervision.
"He was a real thinking farmer," said Mr. MOORE, "and a good deal deeper than people expected of the head of the farm dept." Those programs gave him an insight into the importance of broadcasting across the country, an understanding that he used "to turn radio into a medium where difficult and large topics could be tackled," said Mr. MOORE. With his "enquiring mind and his lively concern about big issues in society and communications" he was an "anomaly among the people starting radio and television, who were on the whole pretty low brow," according to Mr. MOORE.
He was an anomaly in other ways, too. A devout Irish Catholic who enjoyed a drink or three, Mr. BOYLE hated hypocrisy, top-down bureaucracies and micro-managing. The legendary broadcaster Max FERGUSON was a staff announcer at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in the late 1940s. By that time Mr. BOYLE was head of the Trans-Can network.
"I was the lowest paid announcer on staff," Mr. FERGUSON remembered yesterday, "Every year we got an annual increment, although we called it the annual excrement because it was about ten dollars a year." That year -- it was 1949 -- Mr. FERGUSON was told by a functionary that he wasn't going to get a raise at all, even though he was doing Rawhide, his satirical commentary in addition to his regular duties.
In the ensuing blow-up, Mr. FERGUSON either quit or was fired for insubordination, depending on who is telling the story. While Mr. FERGUSON was still seething, along came Mr. BOYLE with the suggestion that he should think about selling Rawhide to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation on a freelance basis. "He was like the army sergeant interceding for the privates with the officers, except he did it between the announcers and the producers," said Mr. FERGUSON.
"He sold that Rawhide show to them [the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation]for about five times my salary and I was able to move back to Halifax, which I certainly preferred to Toronto. Things worked out beautifully and I owe it all to Harry BOYLE. He was the only one who would listen to you and go to bat for you with his bosses."
When the Dominion Network was established at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Mr. BOYLE created the feature show Assignment which reflected "homey" local stories from across Canada and his real triumph, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Wednesday Night, a mix of opera, musicals, classical and original plays and even documentaries that ran for 90 minutes or three hours depending on the strength of the program. Until then, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation schedule was divided into rigidly fixed and timed segments. What Mr. BOYLE did, to the delight of both listeners and freelance producers, was to make the process more flexible so that the quality of the program determined the schedule rather than the other way around. This was the era that is known as the "golden age" of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation with actors and producers of the ilk of John Drainie and Lister Sinclair fusing listeners to their radios.
"He was the making of me," said retired radio producer Howard ENGEL, only one of many people Mr. BOYLE took a chance on as broadcasters. "I was a high-school teacher and not much enjoying it in the mid-1950s," he said, confessing that after a single pedagogical year in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, he had given it up and moved to Toronto and was looking for work. The two met over a drink at a crowded table in the Evereen, a pub across from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation on Jarvis Street, just north of the Celebrity Club, a local watering hole that Mr. BOYLE was known to frequent.
He sent Mr. Engel off with a tape recorder and commissioned him to do a short documentary about the celebration of Chinese New Year in Toronto's Chinatown. "That meant I had to learn how to use a tape recorder, to edit tape and to do a mix," Mr. ENGEL said, confessing that he produced a 45 minute script that he had to boil down to about five minutes. He soon became a tape editor on Assignment with host Bill McNEIL.
Mr. BOYLE made the tape recorder an indispensable tool of broadcasting, said Mr. ENGEL, as essential as a typewriter was for print journalists at the time. In doing so, he ruffled the technicians union. He was in favour of unions, said Mr. ENGEL, but he thought this was new territory and in the same way that you wouldn't impose somebody sitting on the lap of a print journalist writing on a typewriter, he believed broadcast journalists should be allowed to go out and record sounds and voices.
Although Mr. BOYLE had a bad enough drinking problem that he would disappear from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for as much as a week at a time, Mr. ENGEL said he could always re-invent and resurrect both himself and his career with brilliant new programming ideas. "He was a multiple phoenix," said Mr. ENGEL, who was able to save himself by his own invention.
He could arouse envy as well as admiration in other broadcasters. Margaret LYONS, former vice-president English radio services for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, was a senior producer in public affairs and "a competitor for air time" in the 1960s. She remembers Mr. BOYLE as "very independent minded" with no patience for political or any other kind of "correctness." Saying that Mr. BOYLE was a great generalist who always wanted to poke fun at the establishment and against all forms of intellectual pretension, she said he was an iconoclast who gave legitimacy to an irreverence about public life and broadcasting bureaucracy. "His commonsensical approach was a good thing," she concluded.
He was always at loggerheads with the brass above him, said Mr. ENGLE and when he went to Ottawa he found himself in the same situation with his political bosses. In 1968, Mr. BOYLE was appointed vice chairman of the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission, the independent public authority that regulates and supervises broadcasting and telecommunications in Canada. He succeeded Pierre JUNEAU as chairman when Mr. JUNEAU resigned in 1975 and was later confirmed to the position in 1976.
A committed nationalist, Mr. BOYLE had a huge influence on the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission and the shaping of the 1968 broadcasting act, according to Joan Irwin a journalist who wrote about the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission for a number of print outlets at the time. 'Harry was better at cutting through crap than anybody I have ever known. He was absolutely real and he could see through anybody -- a terrific guy."
Mr. BOYLE left the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission after a year, having gained a reputation, along with Mr. JUNEAU, of safeguarding domestic ownership of Canada's broadcasting industry and creating a set of Canadian content quotas for television, among other initiatives.
In 1977, Mr. BOYLE presided over a committee of inquiry which examined national broadcasting shortly after the victory of the separatist Parti Quebecois victory in Quebec's 1976 election. The report was critical of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for failing to promote communications among the country's regional and linguistic communities, and expressed concern about the centralization of the system, the lack of programming from regions outside central Canada and the gap between French and English audiences.
Mr. BOYLE was also a newspaper columnist, an essayist, novelist and playwright. His novels, included, A Summer Burning (1964), With a Pinch of Sin (1966), Memories of a Catholic Boyhood (1973) and The Luck of the Irish (1975). His radio and stage plays including Strike, The Macdonalds of Oak Valley and The Inheritance. He won the Stephen Leacock award for humour and the John Drainie award.
Harry J. BOYLE was born on October 7, 1915 in St. Augustine, Ontario He died in Toronto on January 22, 2005. He was 89. He is survived by a son and a daughter.

Richard LYONS, Elder and Dancer: 1925-2005
Ojibwa leader who was born off the reserve came late to Couchiching traditions but made up for lost time by becoming a cultural authority
By Stephanie MacLELLAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, May 2, 2005, Page S9
Thunder Bay, Ontario -- In the years before Richard LYONS learned to dance, Ojibwa culture in northwestern Ontario was quietly slipping its way towards extinction. The era of residential schools had left First Nations communities with fragmented cultural traditions. The sacred ceremonies that had lasted hundreds of years were furtive at best, but more often, absent altogether.
"It wasn't cool to be native back then," said Mark SAULT, a director at Seven Generations Education Institute and a long-time friend. "We were being civilized into society."
Richard LYONS was born not on a reserve but in Fort Frances, Ontario, where his father worked as an interpreter for the Department of Indian Affairs. He was a member of the Couchiching First Nation but lived in town and was educated at Catholic schools. Growing up, being native was only something that got him picked on at school.
At 18, Mr. LYONS joined the Canadian Army and was stationed at Camp Shilo, Manitoba While home on leave, he met Marjorie SPEAKER in a Chinese food restaurant. The two married after he left the army in 1946 and Marjorie soon took him to see her reserve.
Traditional culture was thriving in Manitou Rapids First Nation, now a part of the Rainy River First Nations, a small community about 30 kilometres west of Fort Frances. In contrast to other communities, powwows and spiritual ceremonies were common. From the first moment he saw the dancing and heard the drumbeats, Mr. LYONS was captivated. It didn't take long for him to join in, dancing in his street clothes among the colourful, hand-crafted costumes of others. "It just came natural," Mrs. LYONS recalled. "He just felt like he had to be dancing."
Mr. LYONS spent time with the elders of Manitou Rapids, learning the dance steps, the songs, the story that each dance told. At first it was grass dancing, a freestyle named for the way the wind blew across a field of grass, but later he moved to a traditional style based on war dances. Even as he was learning, he knew he wanted to pass on what he'd been taught.
"I think he felt that it needed to be shared, not only amongst our own people, but it needed to be shared with non-native people to enrich everyone," said his youngest daughter, Kathy BECK. "He wasn't political about it, and he didn't have any motives in it, other than sharing it."
In the late 1950s, Mr. LYONS moved to Thunder Bay to take a job as a lumber grader in a sawmill and he started giving demonstrations at the newly constructed Thunder Bay Indian Friendship Centre. Since no one else knew the music, he'd go to gatherings with a tape recorder. Later, when he performed, he danced alone to the fuzzy recordings of drumming and chanting.
"He was in his own world when he danced," Mr. SAULT said. "He just wanted to show that it is still alive. He wanted to share it."
Mr. LYONS was especially concerned with sharing his new knowledge with younger generations. Like today, children from remote, Northern Ontario communities would come to Thunder Bay to attend high school. Mr. LYONS resolved that they never forget their culture, as he had done. Instead, he performed for them and gave talks at local schools to explain what the dances meant.
He also started teaching dance at the Friendship centre. Johnny PIERRE was a teenager, struggling with the temptations of drugs and alcohol, when he became one of Mr. LYONS' first students. "For me, he gave me a sense of belonging," Mr. PIERRE said. "He showed me a different way of living."
He also made the youngsters stumbling through strange steps feel at ease. "He was a very patient person."
Mr. LYONS taught dance nearly every night he wasn't working. Whenever he could, he travelled with his wife and their four children to gatherings in faraway communities in Ontario and the United States. He'd often drive all night and make it back home in time to work his next shift at the sawmill.
"When he first started, he wasn't planning on doing this," Ms. BECK said. "Then when people started asking him to do performances and teachings, he just started getting more and more requests. He began to see that this is perhaps a calling."
In the end, Mr. LYONS left his job at the sawmill to devote more time to teaching and performing. He also became cultural co-ordinator at the Indian Friendship Centre.
In 1972, he founded the Dick Lyons Dance Troupe. Over the next 16 years, it steadily grew, touring North America and Europe and performing at schools and cultural events. First Nations drum-and-dance groups sprang up in their wake. "There was a big turnaround," Mr. PIERRE said. "I think he bridged a big gap in the community."
When the Queen visited Thunder Bay in 1973, the Fort William First Nation asked Mr. LYONS to organize a performance at Mount McKay scenic lookout. That single event turned into a large annual powwow that now occurs every Canada Day.
All the same, bringing hope to the community was just as important to him as bringing them his dancing. Mr. LYONS was a spiritual adviser to aboriginal inmates at Thunder Bay District Jail. He was also a founding elder of Dilico Ojibway Child and Family Services. "He addressed the region from all levels," said Jerry WOODS, who still works at Dilico. "Right from the children's level to sitting at the table with the board of directors, advising us of the traditions and culture."
Ms. BECK remembers him sitting at the kitchen table until 3 a.m. with chiefs and elders, trying to learn everything he could about legends and spirituality. "It wasn't just dancing and singing, the entertainment of it," she said. "There was a lot more depth than that."
In the foothills of the Norwester Mountains, south of Thunder Bay, sits an improbable outdoor shrine to the Virgin Mary. Richard LYONS used to make the trek out into the bush to pray there, climbing off the beaten path to reach the statue. But it was never the typical series of rosary recitations, even though he was raised Catholic. He'd offer tobacco, and meditate in the spirit of the outdoors, honouring the Native spirituality he found later in life.
Many people credit Mr. LYONS with restoring Native culture and spirituality to prominence in northwestern Ontario. But it was never at the expense of Christianity, the region's more established religion. "He didn't make a distinction between the two," Ms. BECK said. "To him it was all one."
Mr. LYONS, who in 2002 was named a member of the Order of Canada, was often asked to address graduations and other gatherings but knew better than to take himself too seriously. "Because he was an elder, people used to expect him to have these profound statements," Ms. BECK said. "So he'd talk to them in a really profound way, and then it would turn out to be a joke."
Mr. LYONS was also an elder in another dimension, too. Mr. SAULT and Mr. PIERRE both regarded him as a father figure and say that many more felt the same way.
"There was an amazing number of people he spoke to over the years that would come and ask him for advice," Ms. BECK said. "He always said, 'I don't know why they come to me... I don't have a magic formula.' But for some reason, people really liked what he had to say."
Mr. LYONS had already been battling cancer for about three years when his son Brian died of complications from a heart condition in the spring of 2004. On the day of the memorial service, he was counselling other people.
"The culture is thriving in this area now, and I think that's his main legacy," Ms. BECK said. "At the same time, his legacy as a person is that he touched so many people."
Richard LYONS was born in Fort Frances, Ontario, on January 10, 1925. He died of cancer on March 21, 2005, in Thunder Bay, Ontario He was 80. He is survived by Marjorie, his wife of 59 years, and by daughters Verna LEGARDE and Kathy BECK. He was predeceased by sons Richard and Brian.
