MOES, Barbara Ann (née WHITE/WHYTE) (June 5, 1939-2005)
of Cobourg, Ontario died peacefully on February 2, surrounded by her close family in Southlake Hospital, Newmarket after a heroic struggle with cancer. She was born in Windsor, Nova Scotia to the late Gordon and Frances (ROSS) WHITE/WHYTE. She will be forever missed by her daughter, Jane DE MUNNICH of Sutton, Ontario and her husband, Peter and their two children, Mattea and Clara, her son, William MOES of Lakefield, Ontario and his wife, Elizabeth and their two children, Kyle and Katlyn, by her brother James WHITE/WHYTE and his wife Meridith, and her brother John WHITE/WHYTE and his wife Lillian. Until her hospitalization on New Year's Eve, 2004, she lived in Cobourg for the last 14 years, where she pursued her passions of painting and writing. Prior to this, she was the Marketing Director of the Banff Film Festival, and the editor of Broadcaster Magazine. She graduated as one of Trinity College, U. of T.'s first mature students with an Honours B.A. in English literature, and also received her A.R.C.T. in singing. She was a professional model in Toronto and Halifax. For a while she was a member of the Hart House Choir; her love of singing made the loss of her voice to her third cancer ten years ago all the more poignant. She will be remembered in her hometown of Windsor, Nova Scotia as the Princess of the Apple Blossom Festival, as a precocious musician on the violin and piano. The funeral will be held at MacCoubrey's Funeral Home, 30 King St. East, Cobourg, at 2 p.m. on Sunday, February 6 with the visitation at 1 p.m. The reception will be held at her home immediately following the service. Donations to the Cancer Society will be greatly appreciated. Condolences

The woman takes off her amber glasses and walks
to the blue house with ochre shutters.
On the table she finds a book of poems
Written in a child's hand.
She reads by lamplight
and the clack, clack of the shutters.
A car pulls up.
There is a knock on the door.
A voice says "Your room is ready".
(Taken from 'Amber' from Barbara's 1995 book of poems Blue Black & Amber)

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.

RENOUF, Harold Augustus, O.C., LL.D, F.C.A.
b. Sandy Point, Newfoundland. June 15, 1917, d. peacefully July 4, 2005 Halifax, Nova Scotia. Beloved husband of Dorothy (MUNRO) cherished father of Janet, Ann Petley-Jones Robert (Barbara), and Susan (Scott G. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON;) and much-loved grandfather to Phillip, Evan, Elizabeth, Iain, Matthew, Connor and Roisin. Also survived by his dear sister Sybil (Ross).
A graduate of Dalhousie University with a degree in commerce, Harold was a leading member of Canada's business community. He was a partner in the accounting firm HR Doane and Company from 1942, serving as chair of the firm from 1967-1975. In 1974-75, Harold was president of the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants. During his years with HR Doane, he undertook a number of significant briefs, including the Nova Scotia Provincial Municipal Fact-finding Commission that reshaped and modernized the structure of the province's towns and cities. He was sole commissioner for the Royal Commission on Gasoline and Diesel Oil Pricing in 1968 and was commissioner for the Royal Commission on the milk industry in 1967 that brought out in him an unexpectedly whimsical fondness for dairy cattle. He left his accounting practice in 1975 to serve as the Atlantic region's commissioner for the Anti-Inflation Board, moving with Dorothy to Ottawa full-time to become the Board's chair from 1977 to 1979. From Ottawa, he and Dorothy moved to Montreal where he served as the newly formed Via Rail's chair from 1982-85. In 1985, he retired and returned to Halifax, attending to his varied private business interests, serving on boards and splitting his time between Nova Scotia and his winter home in Sarasota, Florida.
Brilliant, with a logical and clear-headed approach to any task and an iron-clad sense of ethics, Harold became a valued advisor to many prominent businessmen and politicians from Frank Sobey to Pierre Trudeau. For his many acts of public service, he was made an officer of the Order of Canada, awarded the Commemorative medal for the 125th Anniversary of Confederation, named to the Accounting Hall of Fame at Saint Mary's University and awarded the Queen's Medal as well as the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal.
Harold loved the challenge of his work but he loved his family still more. He was happiest puttering around his Pictou Landing cottage or his Sarasota home surrounded by family and Friends. We, for our part, loved being around his quick wit and quiet strength. Harold's was truly a life well-lived. He had a profound impact on many and all of us touched by him will miss him.
Visitation will be held at St. Andrew's United Church on Sunday, July 17, 2005 from 2 to 4 p.m. A memorial service will be held at St. Andrew's on Monday, July 18, 2005 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to the Nature Conservancy of Canada, Sandy Point campaign.
