SCOTT, Terrence Ian Snyder (July 30th, 1937 - February 4th, 2005)
Return unto thy rest, O my Soul; for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee. For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. Psalms 116: 7,8
Terry died peacefully at home, with his wife Leanne at his side, after a very brief illness. Originally born in Shawinigan Falls, Quebec, Terry lived fo 30 years as a Mississauga resident. Today he celebrates a loving return to past dear ones waiting for him - grandmother Snyder, mother Cora, and father Thomas. Terrence is survived by his wife, Leanne (née SHARP,) his daughters Adrienne and Laura, his beloved sister Shirley and her husband Ian SMITH, and their five children and ten grandchildren. Terrence - a good man - nothing more, nothing less - loved learning and teaching. As a former Vice President of Montreal Engineering, Terry worked on corporate projects such as Ontario Hydro and Churchill Falls, and later, as an independent consultant, with the clients of Johnson-Diversey and others. He continued with his consulting until recently. He was also a 32nd Degree Mason of the Moore Sovereign. Terry's personal passion was building and flying model airplanes at the Oakville and Brampton Flying Clubs and tinkering in his workshop. Terrence will be cremated and have a Memorial Service at Glen Oaks Memorial Chapel and Reception Centre, 3164 Ninth Line (at Dundas). For service time please contact 905-257-8822. Special appreciation to Kamila SAWEZ of Spectrum Nursing, a pure gift of strength and pitbull focus; Dr. Douglas MAH, for his care and appreciation of Terry as the most challenging character in his practice; and Hospice of Peel (Debbie, Evelyn and Marc - like old Friends.) Thank you to Father Jon BROMLEY of St. Edwards parish, Sister Margaret (ret'd,) Mary MacKINNON, Carol MONDESIR and Michael WHITE/WHYTE for their spiritual guidance; and a true friend in every sense - Peter WLOKA - who was always there without being asked. Through all the Friends that gave their support and care so generously and freely, Terry came to truly believe and know that he was well loved and had touched many lives. Terrence had a child-like curiousity; an inquisitive mind, a quick wit, a generous heart and a loving Trust and Faith in God. He will be sorely missed. May he rest in unconditional Peace, Joy and Love.
Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away into the next room. I am I, and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, that we still are. Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Pray, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of a shadow on it. It is the same as it ever was; there is no unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is Well. Henry Scott Holland 1847-1918 Canon of St. Paul's Cathedral. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Model Aeronautics Association of Canada, Alcoholics Anonymous or the Hospice of Peel.

Bob MacDOUGALL, Royal Canadian Air Force Flier And Priest 1924-2004
Shot down over the North Sea, he made a pact with God, accepted the German surrender in Denmark and then came home to take his vows and work among hardened criminals. Later, he starred on 100 Huntley Street as a evangelical priest
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, January 29, 2005 - Page S7
No one wants to be the last man killed in a war.
Hitler had just four days to live when Bob MacDOUGALL found himself floating in the dark in the North Sea. Flying Officer MacDOUGALL had about another 60 years to live, most of them as a Jesuit priest, but all he knew then was that the Second World War was almost over and his situation was desperate.
Minutes before, he had been the tail gunner in a Halifax bomber, carrying war material to the resistance in Denmark. The crew was with 644 Squadron and had left their base in Dorset in England at 10 p.m. on April 26, 1945. To remain undetected by German radar, the plane flew between 50 and 100 feet above the water. "When we hit the west coast of Jutland, we had to climb," remembered Father MacDOUGALL in an interview in 1988.
A short while after they made their drop, they were hit by fire from the ground. According to Sandy BARR, a pilot who now runs the Squadron's historical website, their pilot ditched the plane just off the coast. All six crew members -- one Canadian, three New Zealanders and two Brits -- made it out alive.
The frigid water numbed his legs. Later in life, vascular problems would confine him to a wheelchair. Father MacDOUGALL wasn't particularly religious then, but as he struggled in the water, he formulated a pact. Years later, he told his brother Ian that he had made a promise to God. "He said, 'Save me from this and I'll spend my life doing good.' He was saved, and he kept his promise," said Ian MacDOUGALL.
After a spell in the water, the crew was picked up by Danish fishermen. As soon as the crew members landed, they left the fishermen, since the Germans shot anyone who helped a downed airman. Father MacDOUGALL wandered for a day or so, following instructions from the fishermen to look for a church steeple, since there he might find a sympathetic minister.
"I came to a brook and crossed over, but failed to see a German sentry on the other side. He raised his gun and brought me to a halt," recounted Father MacDOUGALL. He and at least one other crew member were arrested and put in a prisoner of war camp. Their internment didn't last long. On May 7, 1945, far away at a schoolhouse in the French city of Rheims, senior representatives of Hitler's defeated forces signed a ceasefire and the war in Europe was over.
In Denmark, the Germans wanted to surrender, but not to the Russians, who were fast approaching from the East and had already occupied an offshore island. The German command resolved to surrender to a British or American officer, preferably a general or even a colonel. They scoured their prisoner of war camps and all they could come up with was a 21-year-old Canadian flying officer who only days before had been swimming about in the North Sea. His officer rank was the second-lowest in the Royal Canadian Air Force, equal to a lieutenant in the army.
And that is how Bob MacDOUGALL came to accept the surrender of the German garrison in Denmark. He was carried through the streets of Vejle, the town nearest his PoW camp, and hailed as a liberator. At that moment, no one was more surprised than he. A month later, the picture of the celebration found its way back home and the face and name of "F/O Robert MacDOUGALL of 107 Henry Street, Halifax," was splashed across the front page of the Halifax Chronicle.
Father MacDOUGALL grew up in Nova Scotia but was born in Saskatchewan, where his father worked as a bank manager. The family moved to Halifax when he was a tot. Ralph MacDOUGALL was a businessmen, and although not rich, he was successful enough to raise a brood of children and send them all to university. He was a Presbyterian but his wife May WEBB was a Roman Catholic, so young Bob went to Saint Thomas Aquinas elementary school and St. Patrick's high school.
His mother died when he was quite young and his father married Gertrude MacNEIL, also a Catholic. Together, they raised his six children, as well as two more the couple would have together.
Bob MacDOUGALL joined the Royal Canadian Air Force from high school. He was the third member of his family to join, and all three went overseas -- his brother Bill as a soldier in the army and his sister Betty as an army nurse. Like everyone who joined the air force, he hoped to be a pilot. Instead, he became a tail gunner, the most vulnerable crew position on a Second World War bomber.
On his return to England from Denmark, he visited his sister at the hospital where she worked. In their happiness, a rather raucous party developed during which "he wrecked my bicycle," she recalled.
When he reached Halifax, Bob MacDOUGALL decided to attend St. Mary's University, where he was active in organizing the hockey team and also played football. Mindful of his promise to God, he considered becoming a journalist and instead opted for the priesthood. In 1950, he joined the Jesuits, the largest of all Roman Catholic religious orders. Many of his Friends bet he wouldn't last.
"It was tough for a war veteran who had seen the world to settle into that routine," said Elmer MacGILLIVRAY, who attended the Jesuit Novitiate with Father MacDOUGALL. "He was older than everyone else and the rules were tough for him."
Life was lived in silence, from rising at 5: 30 a.m. to chapel at 5: 55 a.m., followed by prayer from 6 to 7 a.m., a mass, and then breakfast 30 minutes later. "You could ask for sugar, but otherwise it was total silence," said Mr. MacGILLIVRAY, who later gave up the priesthood.
Because of his age and experience, Bob MacDOUGALL was ordained after 11 years instead of the usual 13. One of his first assignments was Loyola High School in Montreal. There he coached sports teams and taught several subjects, including Latin.
In one session, the boys learned to conjugate scio, the verb to know. In Latin, the words "I know," "you know," "he knows" are scio, scis, scit, with the "c" pronounced as an "h." His 14-year-old pupils fell about laughing at the sound of scit. To help them get over it, Father MacDOUGALL had them conjugate the verb aloud 30 times. The giggles soon disappeared.
Father MacDOUGALL had a varied life. He taught in schools, worked in parishes, was the priest at a veterans hospital and even worked as a missionary in South America. For several years, he served as the chaplain at Stoney Mountain Penitentiary near Winnipeg. There, he started a choir and convinced parishes in the area that his singing prisoners posed no danger. One of those he convinced was Elmer MacGILLIVRAY, who was then the parish priest at St. Ignatius of Winnipeg.
"On one trip, he stopped and he lost one prisoner when he escaped for a while. He was embarrassed about that," said Mr. MacGILLIVRAY who now lives in Edmonton.
Working at the maximum-security jail was tough and Father MacDOUGALL sometimes found it depressing to deal with hardened criminals. Often dismissed by cynical and intractable convicts as just another man in a dog collar to offer them empty promises and meaningless rituals, Father MacDOUGALL came to believe he was a failure and that the promise he made on that black, North Sea night had come to nothing. He was convinced he was a catastrophe as a prison priest and had not done good or helped any in his congregation. The truth, of course, was quite different. Until he learned otherwise, he grappled with more immediate demons at Stoney Mountain and found himself drinking too much. In the end, Father MacDOUGALL succeeded in conquering both depression and alcohol.
Perhaps the most astounding part of Father MacDOUGALL's religious life was his born-again status as a Christian evangelist. That occurred while working in a parish north of San Diego, California. Afterward, he remained a Roman Catholic and a Jesuit but embraced the scripture, the words of the Bible, and became the only Roman Catholic priest to preach on 100 Huntley Street, the Toronto-based evangelical Christian television channel.
He appeared on hundreds of television shows and started his own Food for Life program. Many conventional Catholics found his evangelism shocking and lodged complaints, but he persisted. "There are Catholic evangelicals, and he served them," said Rev. Jacques MONET, the archivist at Jesuit headquarters in Toronto.
Father MacDOUGALL was unapologetic about his evangelism. "I know God wanted me to be an evangelist to the world -- my Roman Catholic world," he said. A natural performer, he appeared on television and at prayer meetings, sometimes in his Roman collar, other times in an open-necked shirt.
Even his brothers and sisters, all of them religious Catholics, were sometimes startled at what their brother was up to. For all that, they are intensely proud of the homeless mission he set up in Toronto.
"I think one of the highlights of his life was setting up the Good Shepherd Refuge on Queen Street East near Parliament [in Toronto]. He wanted to feed the street people, and he worked at gathering food from local restaurants to feed them" said his brother Ian. "He started it in the mid 1970s and it's still open."
He made good on that promise.
Robert Leonard MacDOUGALL was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan., on February 27, 1924. He died on December 26, 2004. He was 80. He is survived by his brother Ian of Brampton, Ontario, his brother Lorne of Truro, Nova Scotia, and by his sisters Bette COLFORD and Margaret BOUDREAU of Halifax.

Remembering Stratford's founder
Canadian Press, Tuesday, March 15, 2005 Page R4
Stratford, Ontario -- Joyful recollections shared the stage with tearful, dramatic moments at Stratford Festival's memorial for its founder, Tom PATTERSON.
"He changed the cultural landscape of this country and was a man who made Canada a better place to be," the festival's artistic director, Richard MONETTE, told the audience of about 900 at a service on the weekend in the Festival Theatre in Stratford, Ontario
PATTERSON, a Stratford native, died at 84 in Toronto on February 23, after a long battle with illness.
In 1951, PATTERSON, a 30-year-old journalist and Second World War veteran, began to pursue his long-held vision of establishing a theatre festival in Stratford that would present the classic works of William Shakespeare.
To research his project, he garnered a $125 grant from Stratford's city council -- "a shrewd investment," MONETTE quipped -- and travelled to New York in a futile attempt to meet the great British actor Laurence Olivier. He had better luck recruiting artistic director Tyrone Guthrie.
On July 13, 1953, the Stratford Festival premiered with a production of Richard III, starring famous British actor Alec Guinness.
From that modest start, noted the festival board's current chairperson, Tom ORR, the stage company grew to become North America's largest classical repertory theatre with four stages, 1,000 employees and a $52-million operating budget.
It generates more than $145-million in annual revenue for the festival and the local economy.
"Tom invented the festival, but he invented all of us as well. He invented us actors and the audience," actor Christopher Plummer said in a poignant salute Sunday to "that tenacious little firebrand and maker of miracles."
"Every time I walk onto this stage, every board I tread on cries out, 'Tom PATTERSON,' Plummer said.
Tim PATTERSON remembered his father as a master storyteller, a keen gardener and an accomplished chef.
"He was an eternal optimist who always saw the bright side of life," he said.
PATTERSON was named a member of the Order of Canada in 1967 and, 10 years later, was raised to the level of officer. In 1991, the festival renamed its third stage the Tom PATTERSON Theatre.
