James Weston JOHNSTON
By Paul ROSBOROUGH, Thursday, June 30, 2005, Page A22
Husband, father, veteran, engineer, leader. Born April 16, 1923, in River Hebert, Nova Scotia Died December 22, 2004, in Kingston, Ontario, of cancer, aged 81.
James Weston JOHNSTON (Wes) was one of seven children. When Wes was three years old, he moved to Newcastle Creek, New Brunswick, where his father worked as the manager in a coal mine.
After the Second World War started, Wes joined the Royal Canadian Air Force at the age of 19 and was transferred to 434 Squadron, part of Bomber Command in England, where he flew in Lancaster bombers as a Wireless Air Gunner.
Wes didn't talk very much about his war experiences; however, his flight log was quite lengthy. His entries detail what cities he bombed and when he saw German jets flying up to attack the bombers for the first time. The horrors he must have seen, and the sacrifices that were made to make Canada and the world safe, will never be forgotten.
After the war, Wes graduated from the University of New Brunswick as a civil engineer. In 1951, he rejoined the Royal Canadian Air Force to work in construction engineering and particularly enjoyed his posting to Baden-Soellingen in Germany. Wes left the air force in 1968 and worked for Agriculture Canada until his well-earned retirement in 1983.
Wes met Helen SALIGA- ROSBOROUGH in 1973 and immediately gave unconditional love to her young sons, Danny and Paul. This is extraordinary, given he was caring for four children of his own Don, Mike, Betty and Robin -- from a previous marriage to Joan. Wes and Helen had a special bond that made them inseparable for 30 years. They were married on March 15, 1975, and celebrated daily their renewed life together that included ballroom dancing, walking and cooking -- it was clear they had each found their soul mates.
Wes served in many volunteer positions, particularly after his retirement in 1983. He was always volunteering to drive cancer or dialysis patients to medical treatment, clearing cross-country trails, or serving on executive boards of charities. In Brockville, his service for the United Way and the Volunteer Bureau gave him particular satisfaction. Moreover, he led the effort to build a new home for the Royal Canadian Legion in Westport, and they created an award in his name for his dedication and commitment. But despite all this, he was modest about his accomplishments and never bragged. He just felt it was the right thing to do.
Wes had a warm heart for snakes and insects. He helped Helen get over her fear of dragonflies by letting them land on him and pointing out how beautiful they truly are. Further, at their cottage near Carleton Place, he found a snake that took up residence under a step at the side door. Each time the family visited, he would allow us to handle the garden snake for a short time, but then were told that the snake needed rest and to put it back. For those who did not share his love of his "pet," he would take particular delight in seeing them squirm when he lifted the snake up for a closer look.
In 1998, the doctors discovered that Wes had lymphoma, for which he received chemotherapy and radiation treatment. The cancer resurfaced in 2004 and again he went for chemotherapy, but this terrible disease eventually won out. For the last few months, Helen nursed him around the clock tirelessly, in his own home, which was a comfort to him. He died quietly, with his wife at his side.
Wes has had a big impact on many lives; he was a principle-based leader who led by example. I'd like to honour his memory by passing his love, his sense of duty and his commitment, to our own family, Friends and community. That would make Wes proud.
Paul is Wes's stepson.

10 yrs. seems like a long time but most times, it feels like yesterday. I used to lie in bed waiting for you to come home. Watching the hallway, my eyes filling up with anticipation. Soon I would watch you come in, and walk by my door. I close my eyes and listen to the footsteps Then sleep, knowing everyone was in place. One day the footsteps stopped and then there was darkness under the door. Nothing was in place, a piece was missing. Sometimes I would catch myself waiting, then I would remember. Sometimes I wondered if I would ever feel whole again. Although never the same, I see, hear, feel your place in my heart. One day, once again, I sleep. I love you my sister. Love Dad, Mom and Amanda.

Passed away, at North York General Hospital on Friday, December 24, 2004, at the age of 89. He was predeceased by his loving wife Elaine. Survived by his dotting children, Deborah, Elizabeth (Steve), Christopher (Pam) and Richard (Laura); grandchildren Ryan BRUCE, Stephanie BRUCE and Christopher Jr. (Mini-C,) and his nephew Oliver and wife Roz. Born in England on April 19, 1915, he attended Seaford Prep School and then Tonbridge. His first job was in Derbyshire at the stone quarry where he started his bookkeeping career. He enlisted in the British armed forces and was stationed in England. He was later transferred to India where, as a Lt. Colonel, he lead dangerous reconnaissance missions. During the Allied invasion of Italy, while on reconnaissance missions he received the Military Cross, and other decorations. After the war he secured a position at Peats, a chartered accounting firm. While working for Peats he was noticed for his exemplary work ethics and his intuitive counsel by the General Manager of the J. Arthur Rank Company. He was offered a position in their Canadian office working for the Canadian Odeon Theaters company where he was President and Chief Executive Officer for more than thirty years. He met his stunning wife Elaine on a trip to Rank's New York Office, and married shortly thereafter in New York. He and Elaine settled in North York and raised their children in a home full of excitement. He retired in 1984, and lost the love of his life, Elaine, in 1989 to cancer. He was a generous man, always giving advice to others, and helping the many charities in which he and Elaine were involved. He will be sorely missed by his family and Friends, and although not a religious man, he was the most Christian of men.

Douglas SALMON, Surgeon (1923-2005)
As the first black person in Canada to head a surgical team at a large hospital, he came a long way from being a labourer in a Toronto construction yard
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, October 31, 2005, Page S11
Orphaned, poor and black in Toronto during the Depression, Doug SALMON held steadfastly to a dream. He was going to be a doctor.
Despite a society that did not support his ambition, that's exactly what he did. For 28 years, he performed surgery at Scarborough Centenary Hospital.
The first black surgeon in modern Canadian medical history, while at Centenary he became president of the hospital's medical staff and chief of general surgery, the first black person to do so. He was among the first doctors in Canada to perform gastric bypass surgery.
"He led an exemplary life as a husband, father and grandfather," said his wife, Beverly, a former Metro Toronto and North York councillor. "His patients absolutely loved him."
Born to Jamaican immigrants, he was the youngest of six children. His father, Robert, was a veteran of the Boer War in South Africa at the turn of the last century while his mother was a nurse with the Black Cross. A brainchild of Marcus Garvey, a Jamaican-born champion of black nationalism, it was a local-community version of the Red Cross and may have provided young Doug's early inspiration to become a doctor.
After his parents died, he learned to light furnaces for a penny a piece and worked three paper routes to help provide for himself and his siblings, by then in the care of a widowed aunt. At high school, low expectations for his race saw him channelled into a technical program. Although he graduated at the top of his class, young Doug SALMON could not get a job.
All the while, he had been studying music. His piano teacher at the Royal Conservatory of Music, impressed by the boy's intelligence and desire to learn, pulled strings and found him work at Dominion Bridge, then Canada's construction giant.
He started as outside yard boy. Because he was black, no one would eat lunch with him, except for the son of the company president. His new friend saw ability in the young man and told his father. As a result, Doug SALMON was promoted to inside messenger boy and at the same time attended evening classes at Jarvis Collegiate to obtain his senior matriculation.
Interestingly, he spent other nights in an entirely different role by fronting his own band. In the 1940s, Doug Salmon and his Orchestra provided music in dance halls all over the Toronto region.
Meanwhile, in his day job, he was beginning to put into practice some of the theory he was soaking up at Jarvis. One day, he saw staff gathered around a drawing, struggling to figure out an angle. Using his night-school knowledge, he solved the problem. Suddenly, others at Dominion Bridge saw talent in him, too. After some training, he was given a job as a draftsman with the company. Later, he worked briefly as a manager, and he no doubt sensed real possibilities of advancement, but decided, instead, to go back to school.
He enrolled at the University of Toronto and in 1951 obtained a degree in physiology and biochemistry. He was accepted into medical school, paying his way with help from a scholarship, work as a draftsman, and by landing gigs as Doug Salmon and his Orchestra. All the while maintaining marks that placed him in the upper third of his class. He graduated in 1955.
Well before entering medical school, in 1942, he participated in one of the first major protests against discrimination in Toronto. Because of their colour, one of his Friends, Roy JOHNSTON, and two out-of-town guests had been denied entry to the Palais Royale, a ballroom on the Toronto lakeshore, to hear the black jazz pianist Earl (Fatha) Hines.
At a time when black parents encouraged their children to remain passive in the face of discrimination, Mr. JOHNSTON formed a protest committee. Doug SALMON was among its leaders. Appearing before the police commission, the police chief and mayor Bob SAUNDERS, the committee requested a bylaw to end discrimination in time for an upcoming appearance at the Palais Royale by bandleader Duke Ellington. While the bylaw did not come about, Mr. Ellington appeared instead at the Royal York Hotel, where blacks were allowed.
In February of 1945, Doug SALMON was among those who protested the barring of a black teenager from a Toronto skating rink, joining a couple of hundred others outside the arena. The protest was led this time by Art BELL, who, as a member of a student administration committee at the University of Toronto, was then deeply involved in human rights. "It was a civil-rights protest that was civil," Mr. BELL said. "It wasn't one of those beat'em-up-and-break-the-windows type of protests. We just marched."
By all accounts, it worked. After two nights of picketing and a visit to the mayor, the group had its way. Mr. SAUNDERS dusted off a bylaw from the days of Upper Canada that said innkeepers must provide lodging and refreshment to any traveller who has the means to pay for the service. It was enacted the next day.
Along with Dr. SALMON, other committee members rose to prominence. Mr. JOHNSTON became a trustee of the Toronto Board of Education and Wilson BROOKS became one of Toronto's first black school principals.
In a twist of fate, through his sister, Dr. SALMON met his future wife, Beverly BELL, who also happened to both a nurse and Art BELL's cousin. After marrying in 1956, they moved to Detroit, where Dr. SALMON became a resident in general surgery.
Although offered a practice in Detroit, Dr. SALMON returned home where he and his wife started a family. In 1967, he landed a job at Scarborough Centenary as a member of the general surgical staff. He was the only black surgeon on staff, but not the first black surgeon in Canada. That distinction belonged to another Toronto doctor, Dr. Anderson Ruffin ABBOTT, a man who had graduated from the University of Toronto in 1861, served as a Union Army surgeon during the American Civil War and afterward returned home to be a resident surgeon at Toronto General Hospital, all at a time when anesthesia was in its infancy.
Over the years, Dr. SALMON put in long hours and gained a reputation as a highly skilled practitioner with a caring and compassionate bedside manner who had helped pioneer such techniques as bypass surgery for the morbidly obese. In time, the hospital made him chief of general surgery. As the first black person in the country to head the surgical team at a large hospital, and someone in whose hands lay the power of life and death, he had come a long way from the construction yard at Dominion Bridge.
Dr. SALMON worked at Centenary from 1967 until 1995, and then at the Rudd Clinic in Toronto. He retired in 1997.
He was awarded the Canadian Black Achievement Award for medicine in 1986 and 1994. In his honour, his family has established the Dr. John Douglas Graham Salmon Award for Black Medical Students.
John Douglas Graham SALMON was born on December 13, 1923. He died at home in Toronto on September 21 of vascular dementia. He was 81. One sister, his wife, Beverly, children, Doug Jr., Warren,
Heather and Leslie survive him. Four siblings and one grandchild predeceased him.

SALMON, Christopher Russell Balliol
Passed away, at North York General Hospital on Friday, December 24, 2004, at the age of 89. He was predeceased by his loving wife Elaine. Survived by his doting children, Deborah, Elizabeth (Steve), Christopher (Pam) and Richard (Laura); grandchildren Ryan Bruce, Stephanie Bruce and Christopher Jr. (Mini-C), and his nephew Oliver and wife Roz. Born in England on April 19, 1915, he attended Seaford Prep School and then Tonbridge. His first job was in Derbyshire at the stone quarry where he started his bookkeeping career. He enlisted in the British Armed Forces and was stationed in England. He was later transferred to India where, as a Lt. Colonel, he lead dangerous reconnaissance missions. During the Allied invasion of Italy, while on reconnaissance missions, he received the Military Cross, and other decorations. After the war he secured a position at Peats, a chartered accounting firm. While working for Peats he was noticed for his exemplary work ethics and his intuitive counsel by the General Manager of the J. Arthur Rank Company. He was offered a position in their Canadian office working for the Canadian Odeon Theaters company where he was President and Chief Executive Officer for more than thirty years. He met his stunning wife Elaine on a trip to Rank's New York office, and married shortly thereafter in New York. He and Elaine settled in North York and raised their children in a home full of excitement. He retired in 1984, and lost the love of his life, Elaine, in 1989 to cancer. He was a generous man, always giving advice to others, and helping the many charities in which he and Elaine were involved. He will be sorely missed by his family and Friends, and although not a religious man, he was the most Christian of men. If desired, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society, 20 Holly Street, Suite 101, Toronto M4S 3B1 or Canadian National Institute for the Blind, 1929 Bayview Avenue, Toronto M4G 3E8, would be appreciated.

Dr. Douglas SALMON, 81: Surgeon, scholar
Dr. Douglas SALMON known for his courage, humility, compassion
Fought for the rights of blacks to see jazz greats at Palais Royale
By Philip MASCOLL, Staff Reporter
Dr. John Douglas Graham Roy SALMON was a kind and wonderful person who had to struggle for everything he achieved, his family and Friends say.
SALMON, who died last Wednesday at age 81, wasn't only the first black surgeon in Canada. He was an accomplished pianist, scholar, athlete and sculptor as well.
"From the moment I met him, I knew he was a person I could truly respect, and I never varied from thinking that way," Beverley (Bev) SALMON, his wife and former Metro Toronto and North York councillor said of her partner for 49 years.
"He was always warm and loving to all the family. He had a way of reaching out to people... he was loved by patients and colleagues alike. He was truly a role model and inspiration."
His lifelong friend, lawyer Leonard BRAITHWAITE, Canada's first black member of provincial parliament, called SALMON "kind and capable.
"This great land of ours is better because of him," BRAITHWAITE said of the man he grew up with near Kensington Market.
BRAITHWAITE said that in those days, before World War 2, black families were few and far between in Toronto.
SALMON's life was a story of triumph over adversity.
Born December 13, 1923, in Toronto to Jamaican immigrants Eugenie, a Black Cross (the Marcus Garvey-originated medical corps) nurse, and Robert, a veteran of the Boer War, Douglas was the youngest of six children.
They became orphaned during the Great Depression when Douglas was 6. Their mother's sister, Margaret BROWN (Aunt Mag,) a childless widow in her 50s, stepped in to raise them.
SALMON was independent and strong-willed even as a child. His late sister, Stevella, used to recall that even from a very young age, her baby brother was always insistent that "I'm going to be a docta!"
Young Douglas SALMON would let nothing stand in his way, according to the family history.
Always resourceful and self-motivated he would go around the neighbourhood and light furnaces for a penny, as well as work three paper routes so he, too, could contribute to the family.
In the 1940s, "Doug Salmon and his Orchestra" entertained at dances, parties and lodges in and around Toronto.
Not escaping the realities of racism of the day, SALMON became a protest leader on the Race Discrimination Committee (1942), which battled for the rights of blacks to enter Toronto's Palais Royale to see jazz greats such as Duke Ellington.
The protest came after he and a group of Friends were denied admission to the Palais Royale to hear Earl "Fatha" Hines play piano.
In a 1992 interview with the Star, SALMON said while Canada didn't have segregation in those days, blacks did find themselves shut out of places. "You didn't see blacks as salespersons. As far as education was concerned, you saw few blacks introduced to university."
In 1951, he obtained his honours degree in physiology and biochemistry from the University of Toronto, and in 1955, his medical degree, graduating president of his second medical year.
SALMON received scholarships from the American Jessie Smith Noyes Foundation and interned at Toronto Western Hospital.
In 1954, his sister Bea introduced him to Beverley BELL, a young Victorian Order nurse. They were married in 1956 and immediately moved to Detroit.
Although he was offered a thriving practice in Detroit, the couple chose to return to Toronto and started a family. They had four children: J. Douglas Jr., Warren, Heather and Leslie.
In 1967, SALMON joined Scarborough Centenary Hospital's general surgical staff. He was the busiest general surgeon there for many years, which his colleagues attributed to not only his superior skills and training, but also his work ethic, conscientious patient care, disciplined lifestyle and great personality.
SALMON was known for his courage, humility and compassion, as he became one of the first surgeons in Canada to treat the morbidly obese with breakthrough gastric bypass surgery.
SALMON became president of Centenary's medical staff and was later appointed chief of general surgery, the first black person in Canada to hold such positions.
After retiring from Centenary Hospital in 1995, he joined the Rudd Clinic in downtown Toronto. He retired from practice in SALMON was a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
In recognition of his outstanding stature and service to the community, he was awarded the Canadian Black Achievement Award, Medicine.
In tribute to their beloved husband and father, his family has established the Dr. John Douglas Graham Salmon Award for Black Medical Students, administered through the University of Toronto's faculty of medicine.
Donations to the award may be made c/o The Medical Science Building, Room 2306, 1 Kings College Circle, Toronto, M5S 1A8, or call Ingrid GRAHAM, 416-946-7681.
Visitation will take place today at Jerrett Funeral Home, 6191 Yonge Street, south of Steeles Ave., from 2-4 p.m. and from 7-9 p.m.
A funeral is to be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at Saint John's York Mills Anglican Church, 19 Don Ridge, North York, with a reception to follow at the church. The interment is private.
