Bernie SHARE, 74: Kitsch king of Queen St.
His antique store a neighbourhood clubhouse
'He was so positive, so uplifting'
By Catherine DUNPHY, Staff Reporter
Bernie SHARE's funeral on April 17 was fit for the king he was. His partner, Susan, moved some of his favourite things -- Iranian carpets, the carved ornamental side tables, the bobble-headed hula dolls, the jelly mould in the shape of a naked female torso, the elf cookie jar and salt and pepper set, and five of the 40-plus cowboy hats he owned -- down Queen St. W. into four rooms of the Bates and Dodds funeral home.
SHARE, 74, was the man who owned a neighbourhood mecca. Officially it was an antique store called Gallery and Innovations; unofficially the cluttered storefront with its wondrous wares tumbling out onto the sidewalk on the south side of Queen near Niagara St. was a neighbourhood clubhouse for the denizens of this neighbourhood and customers from all over the city.
Everybody knew the guy with the English accent in the three-piece suit and the cowboy hat, and lots of them referred to him as the King of Queen St. He'd owned one store or another in the area for well over 25 years and it was in one of them 23 years ago that he met Susan. A single mom of three boys working as a waitress in the area, she'd often walked past the store but rarely stopped. "I thought it was a weird junk store," she said, unaware of the valuable chandeliers and art deco pieces often piled one on top of the other inside.
But one day she spotted an Iranian carpet and, uncharacteristically, knew she had to own it. SHARE readily agreed she could take it and pay him the $600 in four instalments. "I was impressed. He'd never seen me before and he trusted me," she recalled.
But that was how he worked.
"I don't think he even kept a ledger. I'd admire something; he'd say 'There's a crack in it.' He'd say something was $300. You'd say 'You sure'? He'd say $275," said Agnes HANNA, a neighbour and former teacher at the local Givens Shaw public school. He gave her many items for her kindergarten classes.
"I'd see a set of maracas, a teddy bear, a little chair, for the kids. 'Take it,' he'd say. 'Take it.'"
For her own Queen St. home, HANNA once spotted a late 1800s chaise longue in the rain out in front of the store with only three legs. SHARE got the fourth leg carved for her.
He would sit inside at the front of his store, a cup of coffee in his hand, surrounded by antiques and kitsch. The chairs would change, as they were sold, but the feeling was the same: this was a living room in which anyone was welcome to sit and chat. "Like an old village gathering," HANNA said.
Neighbourhood artists used to drop by, often for career advice. The talks often went on past closing time, turning into coffee-fuelled discussions of art and life and truth that lasted till midnight. In the summer, the salons, for that's what they were, moved outside and SHARE would sit there on the sidewalk amid his treasures, in suit and Stetson -- looking as if he were dressed for a wedding, HANNA said -- and talk to just about anyone passing by.
Often there was music. Susan remembers a time when a passing musician noticed a guitar SHARE had brought outside and asked if he could play it. Soon he was joined by a musician who lived next door, then by another local talent. Encouraged by SHARE, they played on... till 3 the next morning. Neighbours and strangers came, sat, sang, laughed and chatted. It was a night of magic that could only happen in the big city and that was always happening at the store and around SHARE.
Which is why Susan was determined to take that feeling to the funeral home. Together she and SHARE had a combined family of 11 children, but SHARE also knew street people and people from showbiz from when he used to supply props to movie and theatre sets. Many of these people came to say goodbye and stayed to celebrate their friend. Three members of the talented O'Hara family were there: actress Catherine, singer-songwriter Mary Margaret and SHARE's former neighbour, Marcus, from when he owned the Squeeze Box Club next door.
Several of the local restaurants spontaneously sent over trays of food, as his friend and neighbour Roger CLOWN wandered through the rooms plucking SHARE's favourite Eddie Cantor and Al Jolson tunes on his banjo. "It was a carnival atmosphere. Dad would have loved it," said his daughter Maxine SHARE- STROM.
People signed the guest book, scribbling all over and in the corners what he meant to them. Two of his Friends, Sheldon WAGNER, a psychiatrist, and musician Rick CAPREOL spontaneously sat down together for several sets of the blues.
And most everyone there had a story. An Iranian gentleman said SHARE was the first friend he and his wife, an Iranian princess, made in Canada. One of SHARE's business colleagues recalled delivering props to the then O'Keefe Centre for a show featuring Diane Keaton. SHARE assured him they could go to the stage door, that Keaton knew him. His colleague was skeptical and the security guard there was downright hostile, readying for a heave-ho, when suddenly a throaty female voice behind him called: "Bernie. Hi." It was Keaton.
SHARE was born in Flushing, Long Island, in 1930 to conservative Jewish parents who returned to England when he was 5. He was 25 and a talented but reluctant tailor when he married his first wife, Annette. They came to Canada in 1960 and opened up an antique store on Queen St. E. at Larchmount. They had a second store in the area that Maxine SHARE- STROM ran when she was 11.
She remembers being so excited to tell her father she had sold a six-place setting of Wedgwood china for $12. "He just smiled at me and said 'Good for you, honey,'" Later he showed her the setting in the reference book, telling her that it may have been worth "a little more" (it was worth probably $1,000 at the time) but that this was a good lesson for her to learn the value of things.
"That was my father. He was so positive, so uplifting," she said.
At the time, he was driving a cab to augment the family's income. SHARE- STROM remembers waking up some mornings to find a stranger asleep on the sofa, another fare down on his luck whom her father had brought home for a few days.
He moved the two stores to the Queen and Sherbourne Sts. area, and added a third across the street. All were called My Place. Later he crossed Yonge St. to set up another shop, this one on Queen St. W. closer to Bathurst St. SHARE- STROM had just graduated from high school, but she also opened a store there, across the street from her father's. "I am my father," she said. "Dad taught me to be fearless."
SHARE- STROM describes herself as the second daughter of SHARE's first "litter" of six children: five girls and a boy. Later, after his marriage ended, he had two more daughters from another relationship before meeting Susan and virtually adopting her three sons.
Now one of them, Kerry SARTZETAKIS, will be running the business with Susan.
She won't close. She can't. SHARE's presence is everywhere in this store, with its bric-a-brac, books, hat boxes, African carvings, brass beds, Czech glass and Raggedy Ann dolls. One of his cowboy hats is hanging on a peg. His chair is still at the front of the store. And his portrait sits atop one of the stacked dressers, overtop the shelf holding his favourite collectibles: the elf salt and pepper shakers, the hula dancers. In it Bernie SHARE is smiling -- and wearing his black cowboy hat.

Jim ERSKINE, Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner: 1920-2005
To A.Y. JACKSON, the man who cracked the Great Canadian Art Fraud case of 1964 was always 'my inspector.' The policeman known as 'Big Jim' went on to head the Ontario Provincial Police
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, June 10, 2005, Page S9
In November, 1962, Ontario Provincial Police officer Jim ERSKINE started on a new case. J. Russell HARPER, then curator of Canadian art at the National Gallery of Canada, had asked the force to investigate a flood of Canadian forgeries of the works of well-known artists, including the Group of Seven.
After a lot of dogged legwork, Mr. ERSKINE, appointed two years earlier as the Ontario Provincial Police's first head of its new anti-rackets squad, eventually cracked the case that came to be known as the Great Canadian Art Fraud.
It counts as only one highlight of Mr. ERSKINE's distinguished 38-year career with the Ontario Provincial Police. As well, he saw a hostage-taking incident successfully resolved, oversaw emergency response at the Mississauga train derailment and ended his career as the Ontario Provincial Police's commissioner.
Then premier William DAVIS appointed him commissioner, as well as head of a campaign begun in 1983 to end drinking and driving. "He was a professional police officer," Mr. DAVIS said. "It was his life. He was completely dedicated."
Mr. ERSKINE's break in the art-fraud came, according to a May, 1964, issue of Canadian Weekly, when a ruckus broke out at the Toronto art-auction house, Ward-Price. Some in attendance at a sale questioned the authenticity of Group of Seven works on offer. The scene led one purchaser of a work purportedly by Group of Seven artist J.E.H. MacDonald to take it to the Toronto Art Gallery, now the Art Gallery of Ontario, for authentication. When the purchase proved fake, the gallery informed Mr. ERSKINE, who immediately seized paintings and records from Ward-Price.
With the combined efforts of Mr. ERSKINE, artist A.J. CASSON and National Gallery conservator Dr. Nathan STOLOW, 91 paintings were confirmed as forgeries. The Ward-Price records showed that the fakes were sold on behalf of Leslie LEWIS, who operated a studio gallery at the back of Ward-Price. Mr. LEWIS had in turn obtained some of those works from another dealer, Neil SHARKEY.
Further investigation led to three painters, all of whom had created the works for other purposes and did not know their paintings were being passed off as being from more prominent artists. The two dealers pleaded guilty and were jailed.
A headline from a story about the fraud in an April, 1964, issue of Maclean's referred to Mr. ERSKINE as a "smart cop." As a result, Mr. ERSKINE came to be good Friends with some members of the Group of Seven, including A.J. CASSON, with whom he worked on the case. In addition, he was at Fred VARLEY's bedside at the artist's death and gained the confidence of A.Y. JACKSON.
Born in Guelph, Ontario, to Scottish immigrants, James Laird ERSKINE was the oldest of four children. His stonemason father worked on many buildings in and around the city, including some for the University of Guelph and the stone wall along the Niagara River.
Mr. ERSKINE obtained a Grade 10 education and, after serving underage in a field ambulance and medical corps and then an artillery reserve, joined the Royal Canadian Air Force, serving as a flight engineer on Lancaster bombers during the Second World War.
When stationed in England, Mr. ERSKINE was wounded twice, once while helping defuse bombs. One of the bombs exploded, Mr. ERSKINE blacked out and awoke to find himself among dead comrades.
Once on leave in London, he helped rescue children from a bombed school. Many students were killed or severely injured. "It took me years to get over that incident," he told the Guelph Daily Mercury in 2000. "I would wake up when I heard my own kids crying and break into a cold sweat."
Upon his return from the war in 1945, Mr. ERSKINE joined the Ontario Provincial Police. As well as solving the Great Canadian Art Fraud, he negotiated the release of four children being held hostage near London, Ontario, by an armed, escaped convict, Donald CLINE.
The con demanded cash but, according to one of Mr. ERSKINE's sons, Bruce, the incident took place on the weekend during a time with limited banking hours and no automated teller machines. To get the cash, Mr. ERSKINE borrowed it from a local businessman. After collecting it, the then-deputy commissioner and a colleague sat in the back of a cruiser and wrote down the serial numbers of each bill so they could be traced later.
During the incident, the hostage-taker held one of the children to the window, threatening to kill him. A gunshot sounded, the window shattered and the child fell. "My father said he felt sick to his stomach because he thought the child had died," the younger Mr. ERSKINE said.
In fact, the gunman had shot out the window above the child's head and simultaneously dropped the child.
Before handing over any money, Mr. ERSKINE insisted that three children be released. Once he received his booty, Mr. CLINE released the fourth and oldest child before taking off. He was later arrested.
At one point, tiring of the constant media swarm during the lengthy standoff, Mr. ERSKINE sent another officer out for coffee, instructing him to go in a marked cruiser with lights flashing, sirens screaming and tires screeching. The press fell for it and followed like bees to honey.
At 6 feet 5, Mr. ERSKINE was commonly known as "Big Jim." He also happened to look a lot like Errol Flynn. Once, in Los Angeles to bring an extradited man back home, he found himself constantly approached by curious women on the lookout for movie stars.
In November of 1979, 17 years after beginning on the art-fraud case, Mr. ERSKINE once again played an important part in a major Canadian event. A freight train carrying volatile materials including propane, chlorine and caustic soda left the tracks in Mississauga. Some of its chemical contents exploded and caught fire, releasing flames and vapours into the air early on a Sunday morning.
Fearing for the safety of the city's residents, officials ordered approximately 218,000 people from their homes in the largest peacetime evacuation in North American history. It lasted close to a week.
As director of emergency response, Mr. ERSKINE worked closely with Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCALLION during the disaster. That closeness became literal. The mayor had sprained her ankle and could not walk well, so Mr. ERSKINE picked her up and carried her to one of their daily press conferences.
Throughout his career, Mr. ERSKINE took on several leadership roles, including president of the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police in 1976. Appointed a deputy commissioner of the Ontario Provincial Police in 1975, he became commissioner in 1981. He retired in 1983.
As well as heading the drinking-driving campaign, Mr. ERSKINE was for 10 years the honorary colonel of the 11th Field Artillery Regiment.
With his death, the man who solved so many mysteries may have left one behind.
According to his son Bruce, Group of Seven artist A.Y. JACKSON always called Mr. ERSKINE "my inspector." Once, when the younger Mr. ERSKINE visited Mr. JACKSON, the artist confided that he knew the truth about the mysterious 1917 death of artist Tom THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and the only person he had ever told was "my inspector." When asked about it, Big Jim ERSKINE denied knowing anything.
James Laird ERSKINE was born on September 8, 1920, in Guelph, Ontario He died on May 22, 2005, in Mississauga. He was 84. He leaves his wife Jeanette, sons Bruce, Rick and Barry, and one sister. His oldest son Daniel died last fall.

SHARMAN, Raymond
Ten years has passed us by,
But still the memories remain,
All the good times that we shared,
Have helped to ease the pain.

The love you also gave,
All the happiness, the joys of life,
In our hearts forever saved.
In memory of Raymond SHARMAN, a loving husband, father and grandfather, who passed away 10 years ago today, June 10, 1995. Sadly missed by wife Joan and family.

Karen Ann STEWARD/STEWART/STUART
By Elizabeth CUTHBERTSON, Thursday, December 15, 2005, Page A22
Wife, mother, friend, student, minister. Born September 30, 1955, in Windsor, Ontario Died July 22 in Toronto of breast cancer, aged 49.
On an overcast July day, more than 300 people gathered in Jubilee United Church in Toronto to say goodbye to Karen STEWARD/STEWART/STUART. The funeral service reflected her wishes and celebrated her life, full of the hymns and readings she loved, communion so that all who were present broke bread for the journey, and balloons that floated gracefully to the rafters during the final verse of the concluding hymn Lord of the Dance.
The daughter of Bob and Betty STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, Karen grew up in Windsor, sandwiched between her two sisters, Shelley and Patty.
As a teenager, Karen's greatest passion was her favourite hockey player, Frank Mahovlich. Even though she never enjoyed either baking or cooking, each year on January 10 she baked him a birthday cake. On one occasion, it was 1: 30 a.m. when Frank Mahovlich happened to be going through the Windsor airport on his birthday, and Karen was waiting for him with his cake. The next day, he told a reporter about the cake and said "Imagine going to all that trouble." Another year, she boarded the team bus in Toronto. Karen always followed his career with interest, cheered when he was appointed to the Senate, and a Mahovlich Leafs jersey was prominently displayed at her visitation and funeral.
Karen graduated from the University of Toronto with a commerce degree and, in 1981, became a chartered accountant.
In 1984, Karen married John SHARP, a fellow chartered accountant, joining the extended Sharp clan, and was thrilled with arrival of two sons, Christopher (1988) and James (1993). Karen spent many happy years at home with her boys, involved in their school and sports activities, her local community and, increasingly, Victoria Village United Church. She became the first female board chair at Victoria Village and was involved in the church's amalgamation with other United Churches in the area. She lobbied hard to name the new church Jubilee United Church, a theological commemoration of the church's millennial beginning in 2000.
Under the tutelage and guidance of her long-time minister and friend, Cynthia SCOTT, Karen discovered feminist theology, and her spiritual and theological interests blossomed. She began discerning her own call to ministry and, in 1999, began the process of ordination in the United Church of Canada and studied for her Master of Divinity degree at Emmanuel College, the United Church theological school at the University of Toronto.
Karen confronted her fear of sickness and hospitals during her chaplaincy at the Toronto Western Hospital in the summer of 2000. Then, early in 2002, she found a lump in her breast and. Karen forged close relationships with her medical team at Princess Margaret Hospital and joined a breast cancer support group at Wellspring at Sunnybrook and Women's Hospital.
She attended Capacitar workshops, a healing ministry training offered at a convent in Milwaukee where, after her death, a scholarship fund was named in her honour. Karen's spirituality and faith deepened and, even as her dreams of graduation and ordination faded, she always ministered, sharing with others alternative worship and healing services, such as meditation, the labyrinth, healing touch, and Tai Chi.
In the summer of 2004, the cancer returned, but Karen never gave up hope that she would go into a lengthy remission and see her beloved sons graduate from high school. She began organizing a big party for her 50th birthday but the cancer was unrelenting. Even as her body failed in the last week of her life, however, Karen's spirit was strong and she was surrounded by the love of her family and many Friends.
Elizabeth is Karen's friend.

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.
