PETERSEN, Ellen Margarete (née RUBACH)
Born in Hamburg, Germany on March 30, 1930 to Willie and Erna RUBACH, Ellen immigrated to Canada in 1953 where she met Walter and partook in the dream to build a life and livelihood together in a new country. Ellen soon turned her focus to David and Julie and became a caring and nurturing mother, teaching by example and sharing the love of nature and all wild things with her children. She spent summers in Georgian Bay at the family cottage, often picking wild mushrooms to augment one of her special dishes afterwards enjoying a northern Ontario sunset and the spectacular stars that would follow. Winters were spent on Captiva Island, Florida exploring with the kids, collecting shells or bird watching, her special hobby. Ellen's love of facilitation and sharing experiences carried over to teaching later in life, when she earned her English as a Second Language certification and helped many new Canadians learn the intricacies of a different language and country. Her colleagues knew her as a dedicated and compassionate teacher who would always go that extra distance for her students. Ellen globe trotted extensively in her later years and put together a travel resume that a National Geographic photographer would have been proud to accumulate. Ellen is lovingly remembered by daughter Julie, son David, grandchildren Rush and Annie, daughter-in-law Patricia and many dear Friends. The family wishes to thank the Princess Margaret Hospital staff, especially Dr. STURGEON for his care and the staff at Oakville-Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, with special mention going to the 4E and 3E nursing staff; your support and understanding made this difficult journey a little easier. A Celebration of Ellen's life will be held on Thursday, August 4, from 5-8 pm at Glen Erin Inn, 1695 The Collegeway, Mississauga (905-828-6103). In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation or the Ding Darling Wildlife Society, 1 Wildlife Dr., Sanibel, Florida, 33957 U.S.A. would be appreciated.

PETERSEN, Niels Forrester (1912-2005)
On November 25th, at his home in Toronto, Niels taught us how to die with as much panache as he had taught us how to live. He passed away peacefully at 10.30 p.m., surrounded by family and Friends, amid, laughter and tears, stories and songs. Niels was predeceased by his beloved wife Betty, his parents Niels and Amelia, and his sisters Irene and Thora. He will be deeply missed by his son Charles, daughter-in-law Riki TUROFSKY, daughter Jane and much loved grandchildren Corbett, Niels and James (Lara) PETERSEN, and Miranda, Jennifer and Katie BURFIELD. He will be greatly missed by his niece Victoria (Ken SPARKS,) and by many Friends including Else KILDEGAARD, and Niels Kildegaard PEDERSEN of Denmark, Doris LAFRENIER, Gordon FOOTE, David and Cathy WILKES, Saturday morning coffee klatch Friends Marie and Jim McGORMAN, Tessa BUCHAN, Julie and Mike PARKER and their wonderful daughter Katelyn, by Garry HANRAHAN, Oksana CHUYKO and also by long-time business associates and Friends Ted TREMAIN and Jim McMYN, and by Brenda WHITE/WHYTE who cared for him and made him laugh to his last hours. Niels was born July 3, 1912 in Ansdell, Lancashire. He was educated in Lytham Saint Annes and in Copenhagen, Denmark, before emigrating to Canada in 1929. Niels began a more than 70-year association with the Young Men's Christian Association of Canada when he joined West End Young Men's Christian Association, becoming Chairman of the National Board of Canada, and Chair of the International Finance Committee in Geneva, Switzerland. He was awarded the Fellowship of Honour by the Young Men's Christian Association in 1982. Niels met his beloved wife, Betty BAUCKHAM, at Young Men's Christian Association Geneva Park in 1938, and managed to engage her interest by disabling her boyfriend with a rigourous course of gymnastics. They were married in Toronto in 1942, shortly before Niels joined the Queens Own Rifles. Flat feet kept Niels from serving overseas. During his service career he trained new recruits in physical fitness, including one grateful Officer who told him 50 years later that his training kept him alive on the beaches of Normandy. While in the army, Niels completed a three-year business correspondence course from Queens University in one year, leading to a 60-year career in business. Niels was President and Chairman of the Board of Sterling Trust, and Chairman of Wellington Trust. He guided Investors Finance Corporation Limited and Commercial Financial for many decades. Niels' passion for boating, begun at 50 when his son, Charles, taught him how to sail, led to hours of peace and challenge in his much loved Nonsuch sailboats both in Florida and Ontario. He enjoyed photography, travel, classical music, and walking. A more recent hobby was following sailing races and reading newspapers from around the world on his computer. He particularly enjoyed listening to Rev. Dr. Andrew STIRLING, broadcast on the internet from Timothy Eaton Church, on the Sundays he was not able to get to service. Saturday morning coffee with Friends at the St. Lawrence Market demonstrated his lifelong gift, an ability to talk with anyone, about anything, at anytime, with laughter and zest. The family wishes to thank Dr. Vincent CHIEN and the A Team at St. Michael's Hospital, for their remarkable care during his final month, and Dr. David GREENBERG for his special kindness. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. West, at Windermere, East of the Jane Subway, on Tuesday, November 29, from 2-4 pm and 7-9 p.m. A service in celebration of his life will take place at Timothy Eaton Church on Wednesday, November 30 at 3.00 p.m. Donations may be made in his memory to a favorite charity. It is not often that a man can live for most of a century, can experience life before telephones, cars or airplanes were common, and can enjoy the fun of WiFi on an IMac, lucid to the end. He will be lovingly remembered and sorely missed.

Police probe biker's death
By Randy RICHMOND and Jane SIMS, Free Press Reporters
A well-known member of the Hells Angels in London and a constant thorn in the side of police has died, apparently hanged in a shed at his Melbourne home. Marty ZAGER, 39, was found dead early Saturday morning in an outbuilding at the south end of his property on Melbourne Road.
ZAGER was "a dominant personality in the London area as far as the Hells Angels," Det. Staff Sgt. Scott Mills of the provincial Ontario Provincial Police biker enforcement unit said yesterday.
"He's been a person of interest of the biker enforcement unit for years."
Police would not confirm the details of ZAGER's death yesterday, but several sources said he died from hanging.
Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police Const. Doug GRAHAM said police are investigating ZAGER's sudden death.
A family member found him before calling 911 at 12: 08 a.m. Saturday, police said.
An autopsy was ordered.
ZAGER had helped run the Beef Baron strip club in London, then owned several body-rub parlours in the area.
After brushes with the law and city council over the body rub parlours, ZAGER left that business and focused on his tattoo parlours, Hardcore Tattoos and Piercings, in London and Port Stanley.
ZAGER joined the Hells Angels a few years ago, rising in the ranks as the local club struggled to exist. He was apparently a good friend to London president Bill MILLER and some sources suggest ZAGER ran the club at times.
Meanwhile, he maintained a sprawling family home shared with his wife, Veronica, three children, several dogs, cats and an iguana.
"We're just like everybody else," Veronica ZAGER told The Free Press two years ago.
Police accused the two of laundering millions of dollars from their businesses to the Hells Angels.
"We wish somebody would tell me where it is so we could at least enjoy it," Veronica ZAGER said at the time.
She could not be reached for comment yesterday.
The door to the two-storey, brown brick home was answered by a friend who said little except that the family was hurting.
An employee at Hard Core Tattoo on Richmond Street would say only the business would continue.
Hells Angels spokesperson Donny PETERSON in Toronto wouldn't comment on ZAGER's death and no one answered the door at the London clubhouse.
ZAGER was never one to shy away from the public eye.
He and his wife filed a $3-million lawsuit against London, provincial and federal police in 2003, claiming police negligence, malicious prosecution and the breach of their Charter rights over drug and conspiracy charges that were eventually withdrawn.
ZAGER also refused to stop wearing his vest emblazoned with the Hells Angels emblem, despite the legal troubles it brought him.
Neighbours on Melbourne Road described ZAGER yesterday as a pleasant, helpful man.
"He was one of the best neighbours I ever had," said Fred ALBERT, who lived across from ZAGER.
"Before, we used to have break-ins here. When he moved in, they just stopped."
ZAGER often would come over and plow out ALBERT's lane without being asked and without asking for anything in return, he said.
Another neighbour said ZAGER often had parties with bikers at his house, but nothing bad ever happened.
"I am very surprised," John ALBERT said.
"Nothing ever happened there."

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.

Milton HARRIS, Chief Executive Officer and Philanthropist: 1927-2005
son of a scrap-metal dealer, he used his genius for business to build a $600-million company, writes Sandra MARTIN. A family man who resolved to keep his children out of the family business for the sake of the family, he supported such varied causes as primate research and the hunt for war criminals
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, April 2, 2005, Page S9
Milt HARRIS's business acumen was legendary, but it was only a small part of the man. A self-made entrepreneur who took his family's scrap-metal business and turned it into a hugely successful reinforced-steel business, he was also a crusader, a civil libertarian, and a quiet but generous philanthropist to a range of causes, including the Young Men's Christian Association, opera, First Nations, and especially primate research and human cognitive evolution.
Short, wiry and athletic, Mr. HARRIS hated formality and was rarely seen in a shirt and tie. As a young man, he learned to box and to fly a single-engine plane -- until good sense and his wife persuaded him to ground his aircraft. In recent years, he was a committed cyclist, often riding close to 30 kilometres a day through the ravines of Toronto. Although he couldn't read music, he took up the organ a dozen years ago and learned to play toccatas, fugues and sonatas.
Milton HARRIS was born in Detroit in 1927, one of two sons of Sam and Jenny HARRIS. The family moved to London when Milt was a few months old. His childhood was troubled because his mother was sickly and his father tended to favour Milt's brother, Liebert. Fortunately, the young boy had affectionate and supportive aunts and uncles and, instead of being embittered by his upbringing, he developed empathy and compassion for others.
In a eulogy for Mr. HARRIS, his son, David, attributed his father's affinity for the oppressed and dispossessed to those early struggles. "I think that Milt built his life in opposition and reaction to the parenting he received and... this explains... his most prominent character trait: He was a fighter, a go-getter, a man of action."
Mr. HARRIS grew up in the scrap-metal business, which had been in the family since before the turn of the century. At 13, he was driving a truck, and working part-time for his father, his grandfather and his uncle. The business went through good times and bad -- his father lost a fortune during the Depression and made most of it back early in the Second World War.
There was certainly enough money to send Milt to St. George's School and Central Collegiate Institute in London and to Camp Winnebago in Ontario's Muskoka region for at least one summer. That's where Milt met Max MILSTONE in 1943, the year he turned 16. The two boys became lifelong Friends, a connection that was strengthened at the University of Toronto because they both belonged to the Beta Sigma Rho fraternity. "He was the sharpest man I ever knew. He had a mind like a steel trap and he could remember everything," Mr. MILSTONE said this week.
"He was the best friend I ever had," he said. "A friend is somebody who can be truly happy when something good happens to you, and not with any jealousy or competition, but he also felt my pain."
It was also at the University of Toronto that Mr. HARRIS met his wife, Ethel. They knew each other socially, but they really connected one rainy evening in 1948 when they were both studying for exams in the reference library (now the University of Toronto Bookstore on College Street). "Milt walked me home and he told me later that he knew then that he was in love with me," Mrs. HARRIS said this week. They were engaged that September and married a year later, a partnership that lasted more than 55 years. She is credited with expanding his interests in the arts and encouraging his fascination with primates and human evolution.
Milt HARRIS wanted to become a lawyer after graduating with a commerce degree in 1949, but his father suffered a heart attack, and so the young couple moved to London and Mr. HARRIS took over the day-to-day running of the family business. In 1954, he bought out his grandfather or, more accurately, assumed the company's liabilities. By then, he had a new vision for the business. He had bought a load of reinforcing steel, detritus from the construction of the Welland Canal, and realized that he could cut, bend and resell it, rather than throwing it onto the scrap heap. "That was the beginning of the rebar business," said nephew John HARRIS, who has succeeded Milt HARRIS as Chief Executive Officer and chairman of Harris Steel.
Focused and imaginative, Milt HARRIS was able to envisage the future of the steel industry and to take advantage of it to manufacture a product that could be used to reinforce concrete in construction projects. In the mid-1960s, he began branching out into other businesses, including Laurel Steel, and took his company public in 1967. Today, Harris Steel Group is a leading North American steel fabricator and processor with 34 facilities in Canada and the U.S. and annual sales in excess of $600-million.
Harris Steel is not a family business in the usual sense. Unlike many self-made entrepreneurs, Mr. HARRIS discouraged his children (Judith, Naomi and David) from joining the company. There was a lot of business-related conflict within his family over the generations, according to John HARRIS, and he didn't want to inflict that on his own children.
The same stricture seemed to hold for John HARRIS. "He was more than an uncle to me, he was an idol," he said, explaining that his parents had divorced when he was very young and Uncle Milt and Aunt Ethel had stepped into the emotional gap. After John graduated with a degree in philosophy in 1974 from Trent University, he was thinking of taking a year off before going to law school. At a party, his aunt "dragged me over by the ear" to his uncle and said, "Why don't you give Johnny a job for a year."
At the end of his stint, John wanted to stay with the company. "I was working as an ironworker out in the field. The hours were great, I had all the overtime I wanted and huge money." His uncle listened, wrote the name of his biggest competitor on a piece of paper, gave it to his nephew and said: "Phone him. Maybe he'll give you a job, because if you don't go back to school, I'm firing you."
John got the message. He went to University of Toronto for an M.B.A., continued to work for his uncle part-time for two years and went back to the firm in the spring of 1977. He's been there ever since.
When asked why his uncle was so successful at founding and growing a business, John HARRIS said: "It was really a matter of culture." Long before "empowering people" became business buzz words, his uncle always saw beyond the exterior and saw the heart and intelligence workers brought to their jobs. "He treated them like real people, whether they were labourers or truck drivers or rocket scientists and let them try to do their best."
Milt HARRIS had a genius for business. "He just wanted to bring his mind and energy to the game every day," said his nephew, adding that he "had a tremendous mental toughness." He brought that toughness not only to his own business, but also as a director of other companies, including Air Canada and Canadair.
In the early 1980s, he became involved in the Canadian Jewish Congress, serving on its war-crimes committee and as president from 1983 to 1986. After reading None Is Too Many, by Irving Abella and Harold Troper, their landmark exposé of anti-Semitism in Canada, he invited Mr. Abella to speak to the Canadian Jewish Congress. "He was a dynamo -- single-minded, generous, energetic and gutsy," said Mr. Abella. "He knew what he wanted to do and how to do it."
What he wanted was to find war criminals who had found refuge in Canada. "Although he had no relatives that he knew of who had died in the Holocaust and he'd had a pretty comfortable life in Canada, he was angry that Canada had allowed people who have committed such horrific crimes into this country, allowed them to stay and made no pretense at prosecution," said Mr. Abella. "His sense of justice and his sense of the values this country represents were assaulted."
At the time, Jim PETERSON, now Minister of International Trade in Paul MARTIN's cabinet, was parliamentary secretary to then justice minister Jean CHRÉTIEN. Mr. PETERSON worked closely with Mr. HARRIS, arranging for him to meet senior Justice Department officials. "He did as much, or more, as anybody in Canada to advance the cause of bringing war criminals to justice."
In her eulogy, Mrs. HARRIS described her husband as someone who was "never afraid to stand alone for what he believed, never afraid to fight for the underprivileged and the scapegoated or against any violation of human rights." As Canadian Jewish Congress president, for example, he supported the right of Palestinians to a homeland. Later, he campaigned on behalf of Japanese Canadians seeking redress for being interned and having their homes and assets confiscated during the Second World War. "He took on causes that were his and not necessarily the community's," said Mr. Abella, "so he was often fighting solitary battles, but the right ones."
A big supporter of the Liberal Party, he was the campaign manager when Clarence PETERSON (father of former Ontario premier David PETERSON) ran against John ROBARTS in the 1963 Ontario election. In that pre-cellphone era, Mr. HARRIS invented a concept called home centres for election days. The idea was to place election workers away from headquarters in houses close to the polls, recalled Jim PETERSON, Clarence's son. This practice was later adopted by the party on a much wider scale.
Mr. HARRIS never ran for office himself, but he publicly denounced the Liberal Party for its anti-free-trade stand against the U.S. in the 1988 federal election. "He phoned me and said he could not, in principle, support a party that had always supported free trade and wouldn't in these circumstances," said Jim PETERSON. "When we later endorsed free trade, he came back to us," adding: "He was right."
About five years ago, Mr. HARRIS phoned York University president Lorna MARSDEN, an acquaintance from the Liberal Party and their days sitting on the board of Air Canada, and invited her to talk to him about the university's research projects. One of the qualities Dr. MARSDEN always appreciated about Mr. HARRIS was his low-key style. "He had conversations, he didn't lecture you," she said.
Since that telephone conversation, he quietly financed scholarships for francophone students to study at the university's bilingual Glendon campus. He also become heavily involved in funding research into brain development in humans, an outgrowth of his long-time interest in and support of anthropologist Jane Goodall's work with primates.
"His gifts were such involved philanthropy. He wanted to be there and talk to the people," said Ms. MARSDEN. " That's an incredible gift to a faculty member to have somebody who is interested in their research, understands their research and supports it."
The energetic and fit Mr. HARRIS was complaining of a stomach ache before he and his wife headed to their Florida home a month ago. He became progressively sicker and was diagnosed three weeks ago with a rare and aggressive form of abdominal cancer. His family gathered around him, making the last week of his life a very emotional time. He loved his family and he made sure each of them knew it, said Mrs. HARRIS.
Milton HARRIS was born in Detroit on July 26, 1927. He died on March 26 of cancer. He was 77. He is survived by his wife, Ethel, his children Judith, Naomi and David, his nephew John, his cousin Marcia and their families.
