Nothing but memories as we journey on,
Longing for a smile from a loved one gone,
No one knows the depths of deep regret,
But we remember when others forget.
Loved always and sadly missed by brother Ron SEWELL and by her family.

With family, he also enjoyed building a camp at Willisville, hunting, fishing, gardening and wine making. In 1976 he joined Maltmans, a Toronto Insurance Adjusting firm. Don retired in 1995, taking up international travel with Peggy, although summers were spent at the Willisville camp. In later years, Don enjoyed his life membership in the Royal Canadian Military Institute, carpentry projects (no power tools), regular walks, cooking and a good book and drink. Don will be remembered for his attention to accuracy, his Scottish thriftiness and his concern for others. He enjoyed the company of family and Friends from all generations and walks of life.

PENSA 'made us all better'
The Londoner, who championed social causes for decades, lost her battle with cancer.
By Randy RICHMOND, Free Press Reporter
London's social conscience is a little quieter today. Elaine PENSA, a passionate and strong voice for the poor, the sick and the discriminated against, died at home yesterday after a two-year battle with ovarian cancer.
She was 68.
Family, Friends and countless others she touched were left feeling both broken-hearted and lucky they knew her.
"It has been a horrible day," said friend Janet STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, a managing partner at Lerners law firm.
"But she has left us all with wonderful memories. She made us all better than we were."
STEWARD/STEWART/STUART and PENSA's paths crossed in the early 1980s and became permanently entwined with the creation of the legendary London Ladies Literary League, a group of 11 women who met once a month to talk about books, family and, thanks to PENSA, helping the community.
"We talked about books for about 20 seconds," STEWARD/STEWART/STUART recalled with a laugh. "Then we talked about family and everything else.
"She was our radical activist."
The list of initiatives PENSA championed spanned decades and issues, from London Lawyers Feed the Hungry to a committee that established the city's anti-hate group.
"She was the conscience for a lot of people," said Deb MATTHEWS, a close friend and London-North-Centre Liberal member of provincial parliament.
"She really cared about social justice, about inequality, racial or social inequality. She felt these issues in her heart and in her soul. She had a very generous spirit and she wasn't hesitant to make sure people heard about it."
PENSA went far beyond talking about the need for change. She started projects and followed each to completion, said Laila NORMAN.
The two women helped found London's Association for the Elimination of Hate.
"She was just a marvellous woman," NORMAN said. "I am still broken up about it."
PENSA firmly believed everyone, regardless of colour, creed or sexual orientation, had the right to live in safety, said Debbie LEE, the association's executive director.
"Elaine was amazing. She had so much spirit that it was like she was a young girl in a woman's body," LEE said.
PENSA's sense of social justice also led her into politics. She ran unsuccessfully for the Ontario Liberals, but led successful campaigns for Joe SWAN for city council and board of control.
"I couldn't have had a better friend and mentor," SWAN said. "She took me with all my warts, like she did with everyone. My God, we're going to miss her."
After being diagnosed with ovarian cancer and recognizing a lack of awareness about the deadly illness, PENSA threw herself into organizing the Run for Ovarian Cancer.
"She gave cancer an unbelievable battle," NORMAN said.
Despite her commitments to the community, family always came first, NORMAN said.
"They are a very loving, caring family."
In a recent Free Press interview, husband Claude PENSA described his perfect day as "sitting on the porch at our cottage with Elaine, family, Friends..."
"He will miss her tremendously," MATTHEWS said.
Besides her husband of 46 years, PENSA leaves four children and nine grandchildren.
Visitation takes place Monday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Donohue Funeral Home at 326 Waterloo St. in London.
The funeral mass will be held at St. Peter's Basilica, 196 Dufferin Ave. at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

PENSA, Muriel Elaine
Peacefully at her home in London, Ontario, surrounded by family and Friends, on Friday, January 14th, 2005, at the age of 68. Elaine was the beloved wife of Claude, her husband of 46 years.

Deeply missed by so many other relatives and dear Friends, including the members of the London Ladies Literary League. Remembered fondly by the colleagues and community members she touched with her caring, compassion and tireless volunteer efforts.
Since her early days as a teacher in the London system, program supervisor of the Continuing Education and Community Services Department at Fanshawe College, and as Judge of the Court of Canadian Citizenship, Elaine felt compelled to address social injustice in our community. Through a lifetime commitment to volunteerism Elaine changed attitudes and policies that marginalized members of London's diverse communities by championing such initiatives as the London Council for Services to Newcomers, Across Languages & Interpretation, London Multicultural Youth Association, Race Relations Alliance of Southwestern Ontario, Call to Action, London Race Relations Committee, Project 2000, the Feminist History Project, United Nations International Year of the Volunteer Steering Committee, Community Committee to Commemorate March 21st (the United Nation's Declaration for the Elimination of Discrimination), Hate Crime Bias Activity Steering Committee, Coalition for an Inclusive Community, The Gathering of Good Minds, London's Volunteer Sector Initiative and London Lawyers Feed the Hungry. Elaine was an inspirational force behind the Run for Ovarian Cancer, established two years ago, helping raise awareness about ovarian cancer and funds for research and education. Funeral Mass will be held at St. Peter's Basilica in London at 196 Dufferin Avenue at 10: 00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 18th, 2005. Visitation will take place between 2: 00 to 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Monday, January 17th, 2005 at Donohue Funeral Home at 362 Waterloo Street.

London's 'father of baseball' dies
Peter WIDDRINGTON, whose career spanned sports and business major leagues, was 74.
By Hank DANISZEWSKI, Free Press Business Reporter
Peter WIDDRINGTON combined his passion for business and sports and became a giant in both fields. WIDDRINGTON, the former president and chief executive of John Labatt Ltd. and chairperson of the Toronto Blue Jays during its World Series championships, died Friday night at 74.
The London man was in the middle of his annual ski trip to Aspen, Colorado., a ritual for the past 25 years, when he had a heart attack while getting into a cab and died.
Family and Friends recalled his strength and energy.
"The entire Blue Jays family is saddened by the loss of Peter WIDDRINGTON, who was truly one of the fathers of baseball in Canada," said Blue Jays president Paul GODFREY.
David SCATCHERD, owner of the Oakwood Inn in Grand Bend, and a lifelong friend, called WIDDRINGTON a "doer" with a competitive streak.
"When he took something on, he got it finished," SCATCHERD said yesterday.
WIDDRINGTON's younger brother, Michael, said he had lost his best friend.
"I don't care what his birth certificate said, he acted like he was 45," Michael WIDDRINGTON said.
All agree Toronto-born Peter WIDDRINGTON was a "character" in the best sense of the word, who always stuck out in a crowd.
"He was larger than life. He was one of the most irreverent, outrageous guys you could ever meet," said Janet STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, a family friend and managing partner at Lerners law firm.
Armed with an M.B.A. from Harvard, WIDDRINGTON started his business career as a beer salesperson for Labatt in 1955 and worked his way up to become president and chief executive from 1973 to 1989.
He took over Labatt at a time when the brewing giant was diversifying into food, sports and entertainment businesses.
For an avid sports fan like WIDDRINGTON, Labatt's purchase of the Blue Jays was a dream come true. As chairperson of Labatt's board, WIDDRINGTON set aside $25 million to create the TSN sports network in 1984.
The dream culminated in the Jays' back-to-back World Series wins in 1992 and '93.
When the victory parades wound through downtown Toronto, WIDDRINGTON rode in the lead car.
When Major League Baseball commissioner Fay VINCENT was forced to resign in 1992, WIDDRINGTON was chosen by team owners to take over as interim administrator of the billion-dollar sports league, splitting his time between New York and his London office.
Londoner Don McDOUGALL became president of Labatt Breweries the same day WIDDRINGTON became chief executive of its parent company, John Labatt Ltd.
McDOUGALL said WIDDRINGTON really understood the beer business and expected a lot of himself and his employees.
"He was demanding, but six of the best years of my life were spent working for him.Just" two weeks ago, McDOUGALL and WIDDRINGTON had dinner and reminisced about their days at Labatt.
"We were saying it was great to be in business at a time when it was Okay to have fun doing your work," said McDOUGALL.
Along with his jobs at Labatt and the Blue Jays, WIDDRINGTON served on the boards of many large Canadian companies.
After retiring from Labatt, he continued to take on tough corporate assignments, such as heading up Cuddy International in 1996, when the London company was in upheaval because of an internal family feud.
He also became chairperson of Calgary-based Talisman Energy when it was involved in a controversial oil exploration project in wartorn Sudan.
STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said WIDDRINGTON was known for his wild sense of fashion and outgoing personality. She said he married his teenage sweetheart, Betty Ann, whom he met when they were teens working at a summer camp.
Despite his busy career, STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said WIDDRINGTON was a devoted dad to the couple's daughters, Cindy and Stacy.
SCATCHERD met WIDDRINGTON when they were students at Pickering College, a private school in Newmarket.
He said WIDDRINGTON was an all-round athlete who worked and played with equal fervour.
WIDDRINGTON's death comes only six weeks after the passing of another London corporate legend, former London Life chief executive Earl ORSER.
WIDDRINGTON's death is also a major blow for the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, based in Saint Marys.
Tom VALCKE, the hall's president and chief executive, said WIDDRINGTON recently had become fundraising chairperson and was in New York with him last week to made a pitch to business magnate and former Montreal Expos owner Charles Bronfman.
"Peter had just stepped in and was the white knight we were looking for," said VALCKE.
A funeral service will be held at noon Friday at St. Paul's Cathedral in London.
Peter WIDDRINGTON 1930-2005

He only takes the best.

Teen pals killed on way to movie
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Reporter
Nicholas GILLER, 17, entered every drama class with a cartwheel. Thomas ASH, 18, had a loud jovial laugh that didn't end until everyone else was in stitches, too.
The Seaforth Friends were on their way to watch a movie in Stratford with another friend when they were killed in a head-on crash Tuesday.
The collision happened on snow-covered Highway 8 about 8: 30 p.m. east of Seaforth.
The teens were passengers in a van driven by a 17-year-old male from Huron East.
The van went out of control and collided with an oncoming van, police said.
The 17-year-old driver and a woman and her 10-year-old daughter in the second van were in hospital yesterday.
The small Seaforth community of 3,000 and a Clinton high school yesterday grieved two teens who were going places in life.
"They were responsible and they were respectable," said Jane MORTON, a former principal of Seaforth public school while the two boys were pupils.
An aspiring paramedic, ASH had many qualities needed for the job, said Barry BROHMAN, a science teacher at Central Huron secondary school in Clinton, where ASH was a student until he graduated last month.
Like a paramedic, he was quiet leader who was always there when you needed him, BROHMAN said.
ASH was planning to go to college in the fall and was working at Tim Hortons in Clinton until then. Friends and teachers said the quiet and unassuming teen liked country music and jogged before school every day.
A camping and canoeing enthusiast, ASH was also involved in Scouts, where he met GILLER.
Those who knew GILLER said he was academically gifted with talents in writing, photography, filmmaking and computer animation -- an area where he wanted to pursue a career.
He had begun going to university campus tours and was supposed to go to a couple tomorrow, said Stephen OLIVER, who taught GILLER's digital media studies class.
But though the Grade 12 student was a perfectionist who took his work seriously, Friends said he was also outgoing and spontaneous.
At Halloween, he donned a bear costume and walked through the cafeteria giving out Seaforth bear hugs.
GILLER was generous with his time. He always helped with coffee houses -- talent nights -- at the school when he wasn't working at the Seaforth grocery store, OLIVER said.
Before he left Tuesday, GILLER was working on the Imago film festival to be held at the school in April, OLIVER said.
GILLER loved to play the guitar and trombone.
Three grief counsellors were at the high school yesterday to help students and staff -- distraught also because ASH's father, Mike, was the principal at Central Huron for several years.
"Teenagers are really well-equipped to support each other if they have a space and time to do that," said Judy STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, a member of the tragic events response team at the school yesterday.
Grief counsellors will be on call today.
The school is also planning a remembrance service after March break, she said.
Visitation for both teens is tomorrow from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Whitney Ribey Funeral Home, 87 Goderich St. W. in Seaforth.
ASH's funeral is Saturday at Northside United Church, 54 Goderich St. W. in Seaforth at 11 a.m.
GILLER's funeral is also on Saturday at Northside United Church at 2 p.m.

CHARBONNEAU, Dr. Paul A. (May 2, 1940-April 2, 2005)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Paul on April 2, 2005 at the Victoria General Hospital, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Paul was born on May 2, 1940 in Ottawa, Ontario to George and Maudella (McCOLGAN) CHARBONNEAU. He leaves behind and will be greatly missed by his wife Janie (Zbesheski) CHARBONNEAU, daughters Malaika (Vancouver,) Susie (Victoria) and LeeAnne (Courtney) TRIPP (Medicine Hat) and his son Gregory (Mary) (Victoria) and six grandchildren. His sister Suzanne (Tony) MALLOY (London), Judith (Martin) FLOOD (the Limits) and Catherine (Ian) STEWARD/STEWART/STUART (Nassau) and Janie's family who claimed him as their own. He was predeceased by his parents, George and Maudella.
Paul received his medical degree from the University of Ottawa in 1973. Following his residency training in Saskatoon and Toronto, Paul practiced ear, nose, throat and allergy medicine in El Paso, Texas from January 1978 to November 1996. In El Paso, Paul developed his passion for cycling. With his family and Friends, he would ride 200-300 miles per week. The Friends made during this time are lasting and true. In November 1996, Paul relocated to Watertown, South Dakota. Again, as was his way, close Friendship were established. Paul retired July 31, 2004. Paul has touched many lives during his brief stay. He was a dedicated and caring physician, who loved that he was able to help people. Paul served as president of the Bicycle Advisory Board. He was the editor of the El Paso Medical Society Journal, he served as director of Continuing Medical Education at Vista Hills Hospital in El Paso and was also Chief of Medical Staff at Vista Hills. As well, he served on numerous hospital committees in El Paso and Watertown, South Dakota. He was on the executive committee of Lions Club in Watertown. Paul was the vice president of the Pan American Allergy Society. He enjoyed teaching and presented numerous speeches in El Paso, Watertown and elsewhere. Paul's hobbies and interests were playing cards (Rummy being the game of choice), and bird watching (in Watertown, he was the proud landlord of a flourishing purple marten colony). But, by far, his pet passion was his totally restored 1965 VW Transporter, fondly referred to as "the Troka". Paul will be greatly missed. He touched and made a difference in the lives of everyone he met. Special thanks to his regular group of Friends in Watertown. You were pivotal in his life. A heartfelt thanks to the physicians and nurses in the Emergency Department and the Intensive Care Unit at Victoria General Hospital. Your professionalism and understanding made this step of transition as comfortable as the situation allowed.

Man shot, killed in crowded square
At least 1,000 people were partying, with lots of police around, when shots were fired.
Canadian Press
Toronto -- Hundreds of people dropped their drinks and kicked off their sandals and flip-flops to flee the scene after gunfire rang out at a jammed public square early yesterday.
It was one of three fatal but apparently unrelated shootings in a 12-hour span.
At least 1,000 people were partying at Dundas Square, a downtown gathering spot, at 4: 30 a.m. when the shooting happened, said Toronto police Staff Insp. Jeff McGUIRE.
"It was packed, it's safe to say wall-to-wall people," he said. "I'm sure you're going to fit more than 1,000 people there."
Hundreds of police officers were on the scene as part of stepped-up security deployed for large crowds, such as the weekend Caribana festival celebrating Caribbean culture, McGUIRE said.
Ajine STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, 24, of Mississauga, was arrested soon after the shooting and faces a charge of first-degree murder in the death of Dwayne TAILOR/TAYLOR, 21, of nearby Brampton, who died later in hospital.
McGUIRE added he couldn't understand why someone would commit such a crime in plain view of a substantial police presence and security cameras.
"I mean, we have police officers on horses, we have hundreds of police officers in uniform and (someone would) still choose to take someone's life."
McGUIRE said the square is popular most Saturday nights, but this week's had swelled exponentially due to the city's Caribana festival, which attracts hundreds of thousands of people from all over North America and the Caribbean.
But he was quick to add the shooting was not the result of the festival itself.
"Shooting people on Dundas (Street)... has nothing to do with Caribana, it has to do with a large crowd gathering after the event," he said.
In another case, the body of Umathevan THIYAGARAJAH, 26, of Toronto was found at a suburban intersection after gunfire was reported.
Elsewhere, Leroy WHITTAKER, 46, was shot through his Toronto apartment door.
No arrests have been made in those shootings, which follow a spurt of recent violence.

FLOOD, Judith Thérèse (née CHARBONNEAU)
(August 1, 1942-August 7, 2005)
Martin, Chris, Tim, Kate, Tanya and Rowen announce, with sorrow, the peaceful passing of Mom at the Pembroke Regional Hospital. Mom is loved and missed by all of us. Our beloved friend has passed away-we will miss her greatly. Each of us has come from a part of her and this connection we will never forget. Raised as a child in Quyon, P.Q., she raised her children in Manotick, where she was active with the local Fringe Festival. Jude spent her last few years living on the Ottawa River at Sheenboro (the fort) with our Dad. She will forever be remembered for her zest for life, charismatic spirit, a great sense of humour and a flare for style. This former Beauty Queen was an artist and a loving mother. Her hobbies included collecting eclectic treasures, as well as painting all that is beautiful in nature and in life. Mom left a promising career at the House of Commons in order to devote her time to her family-for that we are thankful. Her greatest achievement was in raising her three proud and accomplished children.
Mom leaves behind her beloved husband Martin Patrick FLOOD, her much loved children Chris, his wife Tanya and daughter Rowen of Campbell River, British Columbia, Tim of Ottawa and Kate of Toronto. Jude is survived by her sisters Catherine STEWARD/STEWART/STUART Ian,) Suzanne MALLOY (Tony,) her aunt Ann KENNEDY and predeceased by her brother Paul CHARBONNEAU, and her parents George and Maudella (née McCOLGAN) CHARBONNEAU. Sisterin-law of Janie CHARBONNEAU. Mom also leaves behind many cherished nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews and favourite cousins. Mom will forever hold a special place in her heart for her best friend Mary Ann. The wake will take place at the family residence, 1 Tripp Road, Sheenboro, P.Q. on Wednesday evening August 10 from 6 to 9 p.m and at St. Mary's Church Quyon after 10 a.m. Thursday. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Thursday morning August 11 at 11 o'clock in Saint Mary's Church, Quyon, P.Q. followed by the interment of her Cremated Remains in Saint Mary's Cemetery. A celebration of Jude's life will follow the interment at their home 1 Tripp Road, Sheenboro. In memory of Judith, donations to the Pembroke Regional Hospital, Canadian Cancer Society or the Charity of Your Choice would be appreciated by the family. Arrangements entrusted to the Murphy Funeral Home, Pembroke. Details, condolences, tributes, donations may be made to www.murphyfuneralhome.ca.

Bud POILE, Hockey Executive: 1924-2005
Player and administrator headed a 'family that ate, drank and slept hockey 365 days a year'
By Nick FORTUNA, Bloomberg New Service; with files from Globe and Mail archives. Thursday, January 6, 2005 - Page S7
As a hockey player, Bud POILE helped the Toronto Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup; as a hockey executive, he managed two different National Hockey League clubs and later ran the International Hockey League.
The father of Nashville Predators General Manager David POILE, he made his National Hockey League debut with the Leafs in 1942 and led playoff scoring as part of the "Flying Forts" line with fellow Fort William, Ontario, natives Gus BODNAR and Gaye STEWARD/STEWART/STUART. From 1944 to 1945, Mr. POILE was absent from hockey while serving in the Second World War but in 1947 he became an important part of the Toronto team that won the Stanley Cup. That year, he also made the first of two consecutive all-star game appearances.
He left the Leafs for the Chicago Blackhawks as part of a major talent trade -- a blockbuster for its day. The Blackhawks, short of players after losing all-star right-winger Bill Mosienko with a broken leg in an exhibition game, sent their star scorer Max Bentley and minor-league defenceman Cy Thomas to Toronto for defencemen Bob Goldham and Ernie Dickens and all three "Flying Forts." Mr. POILE later played for the New York Rangers, Boston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings, recording 107 goals and 122 assists during seven National Hockey League seasons.
After hanging up his skates, he coached the Edmonton Flyers of the Western Hockey League from 1952-62, winning three league titles. After that, he spent four seasons coaching the World Hockey League's San Francisco Seals.
In 1967, Mr. POILE became the first general manager of the National Hockey League's Philadelphia Flyers where he is credited with forming the nucleus of the club's later Stanley Cup successes by drafting or acquiring such players as Bobby Clarke and Bernie Parent. Three years later, he took over the helm at the Vancouver Canucks, lured West by entrepreneur Coleman Hall, a friend with whom he had worked in San Francisco. Mr. Hall, a legendary tightwad who nevertheless lived part of the time in Hawaii, had hired Mr. POILE with the promise of an exotic holiday, as recounted in Denny Boyd's The Vancouver Canucks Story.
"The day you bring us the Stanley Cup," Mr. Hall pledged, "I'll give you and your family an all-expenses vacation in Hawaii."
"Crissakes, Coley," Mr. POILE replied, "by the time we do that they'll have built a bridge to Hawaii."
In 1973, he moved to the World Hockey Association as executive vice-president but later opted for life in the minors. In 1976, he began an eight-year stint as commissioner of the Central Hockey League and held the same position with the International Hockey League from the 1983-84 season until retiring in 1989. It was while with the International Hockey League that his son David POILE entered hockey management with the National Hockey League's Washington Capitals.
"There had been nothing else but hockey in my life," said David POILE in 1986. "My dad never pushed me into it; the only thing he said was to make sure I got a college education. Then, when I got out of college, having come from a family that ate, drank and slept hockey 365 days a year, it became the most comfortable job to get into."
In 1989, Bud POILE was given the Lester Patrick Award for outstanding service to hockey in the United States and for building up the International Hockey League as a vast farm for National Hockey League talent. When he left the International Hockey League, seven teams were affiliates of an National Hockey League club. In 1990, he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in the builder category.
Norman [Bud] POILE was born on February 10, 1924, in Fort William, Ontario He died January 3, 2005, in Vancouver. He was 80. A memorial service is scheduled for tomorrow in Vancouver.

Tribute: Harry J. BOYLE
'A wonderful, creative individual who... produced some of the best programs the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation ever did'
By Pierre JUNEAU, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, January 27, 2005 - Page S7
Montreal -- Harry J. BOYLE will be remembered as a creative broadcaster and executive. But I think many people who crossed his path will just think of Harry as a sensitive, genuine person with a great sense of humour, a sharp mind, a flair to perceive talent in people or to detect bluff. While I was vice-chairman of the Board of Broadcast Governors, its chairman, Andrew STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, supported the idea of assembling a small and informal group that would try to come up with new ideas to stimulate and evaluate "Canadian content" in radio and television. While I was searching for names, I happened to meet a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation researcher, Rodrigue CHIASSON, who worked in Toronto. He mentioned Harry's name to me. Coming from Montreal, I had never heard of him.
"I can't think of a better person for what you have in mind," said Rod. "He's just a wonderful, creative individual who has produced some of the best programs the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation ever did."
That is how Harry and I came to meet. The group was formed and, besides Harry and Rod, included Patrick WATSON and two or three others.
Later, in 1968, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission was created and Harry was appointed vice-chairman. He remained in that post until I left in 1975, when he then became chairman. We worked closely together for seven challenging, but exciting, years. The Board of Broadcast Governors had been in existence from 1958 to 1968, but a completely new act had been passed by Parliament and new policies were expected: An important increase of Canadian programs on radio and television, more Canadian music on radio, the Canadianization of all radio, television and cable companies. Almost all cable companies were American or British. It took about two years to arrange for the transfers to Canadian owners, and involved investments of about $150-million. We had support from some people in the industry -- mainly those who were acquiring some of those previously foreign properties. But the proposed increase in Canadian programming met with some pretty dramatic opposition.
Besides Harry, the commission included some journalists such as Pat Pearce from Montreal, literary critic and professor Northrop FRY, an engineer, top business people from every province, and a physician from a Newfoundland outport. Five of the 15 commissioners were full-time members. Despite lively controversies, decisions were unanimous.
Harry and I had an entirely informal relationship. We had the commission meetings, of course, but if something important suddenly came up, there were no appointments arranged through secretaries. There would be a sharp knock on my door, from Harry's big brass ring. He would come in and sit down. I enjoyed the interruption and dropped whatever I was doing. Very often, the discussion would reorient our thinking and open a new perspective in our deliberations.
Harry was a wonderful storyteller, and his collection of stories was inexhaustible. I have met few people with such an extraordinary memory. He remembered people, conversations, scenery, happenings, even odours in the general store that, if I remember well, his family owned in Wingham, Ontario Harry could hardly speak a word of French, but I was constantly amazed by the number of Friends he had in Quebec and how familiar he was with Quebec culture. Although he was not bilingual, he was bicultural.
Harry's career had been mostly in public broadcasting, while the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission dealt more often with private broadcasters throughout the country. But he seemed to have as many Friends in private radio and television as he had at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. There were few public broadcasters and hundreds of private broadcasters and cable companies. He had been so long and so creative in that field, and they respected his competence and his sense of humour. He seemed to enjoy himself despite the endless hours we had to spend in public hearings listening to applications for an increase in cable rates in northern Newfoundland or the Beauce region of Quebec or whether a Texas cable company owner in Trois-Rivières ought to be allowed to retain his company despite recent Canadian legislation.
I liked having Harry beside me during these hearings. We could share comments, and I enjoyed his very personal way of questioning applicants. I hope I may be permitted, now, to mention something I never brought up with him during all those years of companionship. Hearings would often go from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., sometimes for four or five days. Harry would smoke a pipe filled with very strong tobacco almost continuously. But our Friendship endured. Eventually, he moved back to Toronto. We met now and then but not often enough.
Pierre JUNEAU is a former broadcasting and National Film Board executive who served as chairman of the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission from 1968 to 1975.

Vaughn WHELAN, Advertising Executive: 1960-2005
Brilliant copywriter who combined a wicked sense of humour with bold new marketing strategies launched an audacious ad agency famous for airing an unauthorized Molson commercial, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Friday, March 11, 2005 Page S7
A creative renegade with an irreverent sense of humour, Vaughn WHELAN was a talented copywriter who loved devising controversial advertising campaigns that grabbed headlines for his clients. His innovative and aggressive approach earned him both awards and barbs, with some advertising veterans applauding his daring and others decrying his notoriety.
"It's a big loss to advertising," said his friend Simon BILLINGS of the Naked Creative Consultancy. "His company [Vaughn Whelan & Partners] wasn't big, but it was a presence. He was always thinking, always trying to find better ways to do things and always trying to shake the larger agencies out of their torpor."
"He did shake things up, but it always seemed to be for his reasons, as opposed to his clients," said Dick HADDEN, president and creative director of Cossette Communication Group West in Vancouver. "There is a certain style of humour or audacity that some people aspire to in advertising that is more a reflection of the writer than the client. For certain clients, that is a good thing, but the number of those clients is fewer than more traditional ones and it doesn't always fall in line with what most larger clients see as a brand-building approach."
Vaughn WHELAN was born in Newfoundland in 1960. His father died in a car accident when he and his younger brother, Gerard, were very small. Eventually, his widowed mother, Maudie, married John WHELAN and the family moved to Kelowna, B.C.
A short, heavyset man who loved film and music, he was reputed to have written lyrics for the Vancouver rock band Loverboy. He could have a tough bristly manner, but people who knew him well said that was armour to camouflage a sensitive and caring nature.
Mr. WHELAN began his advertising career in Vancouver before moving to Toronto in the 1980s. "He was a spark plug, a little undisciplined in his thinking, but incredibly energetic and enthusiastic," said Mr. HADDEN, who hired him as a junior copywriter at McCann Erickson in Vancouver in the mid-1980s. "He was trying to do things very differently and he aspired to great heights, which is the sort of thing you look for at that level."
Less than two years later, Mr. WHELAN moved to Toronto, where he was hired as a copywriter by Scali, McCabe and Sloves. Geoffrey ROCHE, now creative director of Lowe Roche, was working at the agency when Mr. WHELAN arrived. "I thought this guy was a ball of fire. He loved what he did and he crafted the stuff as well as he could."
Scali is also where Brian SEMKULEY met him -- as a client rather than a colleague. He remembers Mr. WHELAN being part of the creative team that pitched the campaign for Labatt Blue.
"He had a unique way of looking at a communication problem and coming up with technical and strategic solutions," said Mr. SEMKULEY, who is now global marketing director for the beer conglomerate InBev. The two men became Friends after Mr. WHELAN won the advertising account in the early 1990s for Blue Star, a Labatt brand that was only available in Newfoundland. There wasn't a large advertising budget, so Mr. WHELAN advised Labatt to forget television and do a radio campaign, instead. Then he "sat down and pumped out 40 or so radio scripts," said Mr. SEMKULEY, with the tagline "Blue Star: The Shining Star of the Granite Planet."
"It was absolutely the right decision," said Mr. SEMKULEY. " Vaughn was one of the best radio writers I have ever worked with and probably one of the best radio writers in the country." The campaign doubled the beer's regional market share by promoting its Newfoundland identity and by running a contest offering a summer job with the brewery. "Originally, first prize was going to be 10 weeks of work and second prize would be 20 weeks," Mr. WHELAN told The Globe in 1992. That was too ironic for Labatt, which changed second prize to a case of Blue Star every week for a year.
With unemployment in Newfoundland running at 21 per cent compared to a national average of 11 per cent, Mr. WHELAN's humour offended Winston BAKER, then the chair of the provincial Treasury Board. "He may have been born here," he said of Mr. WHELAN, "but he's obviously forgotten what it's like to live here."
Saying the contest was "totally disgusting," Mr. BAKER complained that "they were poking fun at a very serious situation and we told them we wanted it stopped immediately." The beer company agreed to change the first prize to a postsecondary scholarship for $7,000, the value of the employment contract. Despite the political opposition, the Blue Star campaign eventually won Mr. WHELAN a Cassie award for advertising effectiveness.
"He was an unsung hero of our business because he wrote some of the best work that this country has ever seen," said Mr. ROCHE. "If you can write radio, you can write anything and, believe me, he could write like a mad demon."
In many ways, he was too much of a maverick to work in a traditional agency, Mr. ROCHE suggested. "That is probably why he went out on his own." The risk of going out on your own, however, is not being able to create enough business to keep your staff working.
On that score, he appeared to be succeeding. As president and creative director of Vaughn Whelan and Partners, his long-term clients included Radio Shack and Leon's Furniture. For Radio Shack, he had broadcaster Ralph Benmergui joking with nerdy Radio Shack managers across the country. For Leon's, he created a series of television spots showing upscale customers getting Leon's furniture dropped off at night in a ploy to hide the fact that they shopped at a discount store, only to see their truck stuck in a traffic jam with other Leon's vehicles delivering to their neighbours.
Mr. WHELAN's most recent controversy involved two unsolicited television ads that he created and aired for the Molson Canadian brand. He wasn't a big enough agency to be in the serious running for the Molson account last October, so he got the beer company's attention (and everybody else's) by shooting a commercial and running it on television without the brewer's approval. The 60-second commercial showed a bike courier persuading the Canada Revenue Agency to let him classify his daily food as "fuel" and deduct it as an expense on his income tax. The spot ended with the line: "Respect. It's a Canadian thing."
There's nothing unusual about producing an advertisement on spec, but nobody had ever bought the air time to broadcast it. After the commercial aired in Toronto and Burlington, Vermont., Molson sent Mr. WHELAN a frosty lawyer's letter. He didn't get Molson's business, but the press netted lots of attention.
Mr. SEMKULEY, who works for Beck's, one of Molson's rivals, said: "I give him a ton of credit for taking the personal and financial risk of trying to put his name forward as being the best option for the client to choose. I would have looked at his agency differently."
"It was spectacular," said Mr. ROCHE. "A lot of the people in the industry dismissed it, but that epitomized the kind of guy he was. He had balls and I had great respect for him."
Mr. BILLINGS said: "That was a classic Vaughn stunt -- something right out of the box that would generate good and bad press and get you noticed. He certainly got a lot of calls from other companies who wanted to talk to him."
All of that is for naught now. Vaughn Whelan and Partners is folding. "The creative component of the agency was Vaughn and there really isn't a company without him," said Mr. BILLINGS.
Vaughn WHELAN was born in Saint John's on April 3, 1960. He died at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto on March 3, 2005, from complications from chronic anemia. He was 44. He is survived by his wife, Eileen STEWARD/STEWART/STUART; his mother, Maudie WHELAN; one brother; and four half-brothers.

GERTLER, Jeffrey Lee
January 18, 2005
After a recurrence of brain cancer, despite the best of care at the Clinique de Genolier, Switzerland, and the constant support of family, colleagues and Friends, his courage and morale undiminished, on January 18, 2005 he was taken from his wife, Ann Stewart GERTLER their sons Marin (fiancée Rocio LASTRAS) and Joshua; his parents, Maynard and Ann Straus GERTLER; brothers and sisters-in-law, Michael (JoAnn JAFFE,) Alfred (Kathryn MacRAE,) Franklin (Catherine OLIVER) and Edward (Mary-Jo LOW/LOWE/LOUGH;) sisters-in-law, Cynthia VON MAERESTETTEN and Rowena STEWARD/STEWART/STUART; mother-in-law, Thisbe STEWARD/STEWART/STUART nieces, Lisa and Jardena; nephews, Mark, Maxim, Will, Leo, Nicholas, John Nathaniel and Theo; beloved family member, Doris WINKLER and his extended family in Ottawa, Toronto, New York, California, England and Scotland who survive him to celebrate his 51 productive years. He was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, among the Plain People, where his college-teaching parents chose to farm. But his education was to begin at Darwin House, Cambridge, England (when they resumed research interrupted by service in the wartime administrations and army (Maynard) of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman) -- to be continued largely at St. George's School, Montreal. His further development was associated with training institutes in non-violence and peace research, fostered by the Canadian Peace Research Institute and sponsored by the Canadian Friends Service Committee and the Canadian National Commission of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. He was a "resource person" for the 1970 and 1971 high school peace workshops which took place at Grindstone Island on Big Rideau Lake, Portland, Ontario, the former summer home of Admiral Sir Charles Edmund KINGSMILL (first director of the Royal Canadian Navy) and his family, and loaned by his heirs for that purpose. Jeffrey's professional skills were acquired at Swarthmore College, Pennsylvania, by a B.A., with emphasis on contemporary political economy, history and French (Université de Grenoble), by study at the Institute of Comparative International Law, Paris, on Regulation of International Business Transactions, by a J.D. at the University of San Diego, California, an LLM from Georgetown University, Washington, D.C., and by work with the Commonwealth Secretariat, London, the U.S. International Trade Commission, and the Office of the United States Trade Representative, among others. A member of the California and District of Columbia bars and of the American Society for International Law, he entered his latest field of activity through applications to United Nations and United Nations-affiliated agencies. Invited to Geneva by the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, he was employed by them in 1988, and stayed on when the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade evolved into the World Trade Organization in 1995. As Senior Counsellor in the Legal Affairs Division, he was active in the elaboration of dispute settlement procedures, in panels pertaining to the admission of countries, such as China, to the World Trade Organization, in work, duty travel and conferences on four continents, including university-sponsored speaking engagements on various aspects of globalization: human rights, labour, environment and living conditions, as well as trade. Jeffrey gravitated toward work in the public interest by an early internship with the Environmental Defense Fund of Washington, D.C., and by a spell as Special Assistant to the Rector of the United Nations University of Tokyo. Not incidentally, his two non-professional affiliations in 1988 at the time of joining the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade were with the Lawyers Alliance for Nuclear Arms Control, and Friends of the Earth. He delighted in sailing off Norfolk, England, on Lakes Ontario and Champlain, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, the Chesapeake with his wife Ann and boys, from their first home at Shady Side, near Annapolis, Maryland, and Lake Geneva (Léman). He loved life and knew well what to do with it, was an enthusiastic skiier and swimmer, an accomplished photographer, a keen gardener and family farmer, in Ontario, and an excellent cook. At various times he played the recorder, violin and guitar. Family meant the world to him, and his children were his greatest joy. Facing final illness, his supreme regret was the prospect that he might not be around to share in their lives, to support them, and to help celebrate their accomplishments. The warmest of farewells were given him at the Temple de Genolier above Lake Geneva, January 24, on a sunny day, emblazoned by fresh snow and invigorated by the mountain air. In addition to his wife, sons and brothers, some 150 Friends and colleagues were in attendance, many from the World Trade Organization, the United Nations family, the International School of Geneva, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, Femmes Pour la Paix, and the International Peace Bureau. Following cremation, Jeffrey's remains will be interred near his home in Divonne les Bains, France.

Frank CLAIR, Football Coach: 1917-2005
Ottawa Rough Riders' coach and general manager did not always remember his players' names but he knew what it took to win the Grey Cup
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to the Globe and Mail, Tuesday, April 12, 2005, Page S7
Toronto -- He was known as the absent-minded professor whose players' names sometimes beat him but Frank CLAIR was an innovative Canadian Football League institution. Once, when injury forced a halfback out of an Ottawa Rough Riders' game, coach CLAIR shouted frantically for backup Billy Kline to replace him. It was too late -- he had been traded two years before.
While general manager with the Riders, Mr. CLAIR signed a player by the name of Paul Moses and was telexing the move to the Canadian Football League's Toronto offices. Mr. CLAIR started typing Paul Abraham and coach George BRANCATO, who was beside him, noticed the error and told his boss: "No, it's Paul Moses."
"Oh," Mr. CLAIR answered, "I knew it was some guy from the Bible."
Whenever Montreal Alouettes' star running back George Dixon came to Ottawa, Mr. CLAIR referred to him not by name, but by number. "Gotta watch that No. 28," Mr. CLAIR would say. If the player was Calgary Stampeders' linebacker Wayne Harris, it was, "Have to watch that No. 55." Even after star Ottawa quarterback Russ JACKSON had won a host of awards, he was still "No. 12" to Mr. CLAIR.
"On occasion, he would call me Russ but usually he called me by my number. That was one of his idiosyncrasies. He didn't remember names," Mr. JACKSON recalled.
"Frank was so excited he didn't know what was going on in a game," said Dave THELEN, a former Rider and Toronto Argonaut fullback.
Mr. CLAIR was a pioneer in the Canadian Football League, introducing the short-trap play in 1950 and in the same year introducing films as a key method of assessing plays and personnel. He also had a habit of turning around moribund teams and winning a host of Grey Cup titles.
Wouldn't you know it -- in 1950, with the help of that short-trap play and his game movies, Mr. CLAIR's Argos won the Grey Cup. Two years later, they did it again. Mr. CLAIR also coached the Riders to three Grey Cups -- in 1960, 1968 and 1969, and was general manager when they won again in 1973 and 1976. He was Canadian Football League coach of the year in 1966 and 1969. All told, he compiled a won-lost-tied record of 174-125-7 and his teams finished out of the playoffs only twice in 19 seasons.
Mr. CLAIR was born in small-town Ohio, graduated from Ohio State University and gained some playing time with the National Football League's Washington Redskins. Along the way, in the field house connecting the football and basketball fields at Purdue University, Mr. CLAIR met his wife Pat and they married in December of 1948.
Mr. CLAIR was the head coach at the University of Buffalo in 1949 when he was persuaded to go to Toronto and coach the Argonauts. "Al Dekdebrun, who was a Toronto quarterback and an All-American at Cornell, dropped by our training camp in Buffalo and said I should come to Toronto and coach," Mr. CLAIR recalled in 1980. "I had never seen an Argos' game but I was enthused about the spirit of the football people in Toronto."
Yet, when he looked at film Clips of the Argo games in 1949, he was appalled. "They had a terrible team, a bad program and the physical conditioning was bad," Mr. CLAIR said. "Recruiting was virtually non-existent. I put more emphasis on films and got the owners to do films of every game."
The result was the short-trap play. "I think that's what won the Grey Cup for us in 1950," he once said. "Billy Bass was the fullback and time and time again, the holes would open. It was something the other teams hadn't seen."
It was a simple play and one he always enjoyed describing. "It looked like a sweep, with both guards pulling. There was a lot of quick hitting. One guard would pull to trap the tackle and our tackle would block their linebacker, clearing a hole in the line."
Mr. CLAIR left Toronto after the 1954 season and worked for a spell at the University of Cincinnati only to be lured back to the Canadian Football League to take over the head-coaching duties in Ottawa in 1956. "Ottawa had a terrible team in 1955 -- terribly disorganized," he once said. "I told the Ottawa directors that it would take five years to build a championship team. And it was five years, right on the nose, in 1960 when we won the Grey Cup."
Over the years, Mr. CLAIR witnessed scores of talented Canadian Football League players such as Dave THELEN, Ron STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, Vic WASHINGTON, Bo SCOTT, Margene ADKINS, Whit TUCKER, Moe RACINE, Mike NELMS and Tony GABRIEL, but Russ JACKSON stood out as the "best ever."
"When he [ JACKSON] moved up behind the centre, he took command," Mr. CLAIR said. "He had a good voice... he made you think he was an army sergeant. We felt like we were going somewhere with him."
Mr. JACKSON and many others contend that one of the best offences ever assembled in Canadian Football League history was the late-1960s combo in Ottawa consisting of himself, Whit TUCKER, Mr. ADKINS, Mr. WASHINGTON and Mr. SCOTT.
"I spent some 12 seasons in Ottawa, all with Frank," Mr. JACKSON said. "The biggest memory I have of my time there was that he gave me a chance to play as a Canadian. He was very innovative in his offensive preparation when we practised Monday through Friday for a game on the weekend. We used the short-trap play in games some, but we also had the option play... in those days, I liked to run a lot."
Mr. CLAIR, a genius at snagging import talent, pulled off one of the greatest coups in the Canadian game by persuading two top-flight U.S. quarterbacks -- Condredge HOLLOWAY and Tom CLEMENTS to sign with the Riders on April 23, 1975. It was coincidence that they signed on the same day. Mr. CLAIR signed Mr. CLEMENTS in Pittsburgh and Mr. BRANCATO signed Mr. HOLLOWAY in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Frank CLAIR's run with the Riders lasted 25 years, a tenure that had its tenuous moments of rough waters, especially in the last two years when ownership wanted him out as general manager.
In 1978, in one of the stormiest controversies in Canadian Football League history, Mr. CLAIR was replaced as general manager by Jake DUNLAP. To compensate, he was offered a job as vice-president and director of player personnel with a $10,000 pay increase. Even so, Mr. CLAIR saw it as a demotion and quit. All he could understand was that he was losing his general manager's job and he wasn't being told why. Football fans were on Mr. CLAIR's side throughout the drama and club owner Alan WATERS and executive vice-president Terry KIELTY were seen as villains. The Rough Riders initiated new talks and Mr. CLAIR wound up with about $50,000 a season and the job the club had offered in the first place.
However, it was not the end of the affair. Several weeks before Christmas in 1980, the Riders said they wouldn't be renewing his contract. "I was disappointed, but I signed," Mr. CLAIR said at the time. "All I wanted to do was help the club."
All the same, he did not rule out the possibility that he would move to another Canadian Football League club. Indeed, he returned to the Argos in 1981 as a scout, tapping Canadian and U.S. college talent for seven years before heart surgery meant he finally had to pack in his football career.
Ottawa remained dear to the CLAIRs and for a time they kept their home in the Billings Bridge area and spent winters in Florida. In 1993, they moved permanently to Sarasota, Florida
That same year, Ottawa named the arena at Lansdowne Park arena the Frank Clair Stadium. Sadly, it hasn't done a thing for the city's football prospects. Ottawa hasn't come close to a Grey Cup since 1976 when Mr. CLAIR led his squad to a 23-20 victory over Saskatchewan.
Frank CLAIR was born May 12, 1917 in Hamilton, Ohio. He died March 27, 2005, in Sarasota, Florida, of congestive heart failure. He is survived by his wife and by a daughter.

I Remember -- Stanley MANSBRIDGE
By Brian STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, Friday, April 22, 2005, Page S7
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reporter Brian STEWARD/STEWART/STUART writes about Stanley MANSBRIDGE, whose obituary appeared April 16.
Once, I went off to lunch in London along with a visiting Stanley MANSBRIDGE, and on our way we happened to pass Buckingham Palace. Aware of his years in Britain, I asked if he'd ever been inside. "Oh, only once, but a very long time ago," he said, before breezily changing the subject. Only hours later, over dessert, could I poke out more detail: "That's when I got my medal from King George. A small chap," Stanley allowed, sidestepping the honour. "There were many of us in line, really. Some more cheese?"
Always, Stanley would seem the same ideal of elegant charm and quiet modesty. It was the Distinguished Flying Cross that then-Flight Lieutenant MANSBRIDGE had been awarded in 1943, for valour on Royal Air Force bombing missions.
I got to know Stanley through his son Peter, my Canadian Broadcasting Corporation colleague, and always pressed for more of his story. He had survived 50 dangerous missions in years when even a single "tour" was a searing test of character, with high odds against survival. Even more than the physical courage, I was fascinated by moral strength. As senior navigator for an entire squadron, he had carried responsibility for the safety of hundreds of fellow airmen. I could scarcely imagine the strain of plotting life-or-death courses while hunched over primitive instruments in a pitching Lancaster for hours on end in the deadly night sky of wartime Europe.
I always wondered how survivors of such challenges had any nervous energy left afterward to have normal careers, yet Stanley went on to become an outstanding civil servant. To me, he had that rare air of serenity one finds in those who've shown deep courage over prolonged periods, and this calmness drew people to him. They say our lives tell us who we are. Stanley MANSBRIDGE was a brave man from a brave generation.

Lloyd STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, Aviator: 1920-2005
Unassuming lad from Saskatchewan never expected to be an pilot. He got more than he bargained for, both in combat and in the bush, and yet always rose to the occasion. He ended his career as chief pilot for Imperial Oil
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, May 16, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Lloyd STEWARD/STEWART/STUART was a boy from a ranch in Saskatchewan who went on to be a bush pilot and captain of a corporate jet fleet. His first flight into the bush meant landing an old Tiger Moth biplane equipped with floats on the lakes of northern Saskatchewan. And while that might seem a bit risky, Mr. STEWARD/STEWART/STUART cut his teeth on far tougher stuff, having flown Spitfires in the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War.
Late in the war, he tangled with an experimental jet fighter, and shot down a Focke Wolfe 190, the most dreaded German Luftwaffe fighter. The fastest radial-engine aircraft ever built, the FW-190 was a plane that Spitfire pilots such as Flight Lieutenant STEWARD/STEWART/STUART feared even more than the better-known Messerschmitt Me 109.
His victory had come as a comfort -- two days earlier, Mr. STEWARD/STEWART/STUART had lost an aircraft and been forced to bail out over Germany.
"He was caught in a tree with his parachute, but the branch gave way and he was let down gently," said his son Barry STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, an Air Canada pilot. "He didn't know which side of the line he was on, so he started walking in what he thought was the right direction. A German civilian with a pitchfork met him. Dad offered him a cigarette, he said 'Danke' and went on his way."
As it happened, Mr. STEWARD/STEWART/STUART had chosen the right path. A U.S. jeep picked him up and he was back with his squadron that same day.
The incident with the jet fighter occurred some weeks later. One of Adolf Hitler's promised "terror weapons," it was a German Me 262. Powered by two jet engines, it possessed a speed of 540 mph versus 408 mph for a late-model Spitfire. Though the Spitfire was no match for the jet, this particular Me-262 had the misfortune to drop out of the clouds in front of Mr. STEWARD/STEWART/STUART's Spitfire. He reacted in an instant, fired off a burst and damaged the jet, though it was uncertain whether it crashed.
The youngest of four siblings born in the Qu-Appelle valley, as a child Lloyd STEWARD/STEWART/STUART never dreamed he would be a pilot. His father's family had moved from Carleton Place outside Ottawa to Saskatchewan in 1883, more than two decades before the territory became a province. Young Lloyd went to school in a one-room school house, but the family rented out their ranch for a few years during the Depression and moved into Regina.
There he went to the old Regina Central Collegiate, and later to a private school called Luther College. The family paid for part of his tuition with sides of beef. After high school, he worked on the ranch for a year and then went to Normal School, or teacher's college, where he graduated in June, 1940.
He applied immediately to the air force. Always a modest man, he figured his farming background might make him useful on the ground, fixing aircraft as a fitter or rigger. So it took him by surprise when the Royal Canadian Air Force recruiter said they needed pilots and told him to come back in a few months. While he was waiting, he taught school to nine students in a one-room schoolhouse at Liberty, Saskatchewan. At Christmas, he went back to see the recruiter and found he was wanted right away. He began flight training in Regina in January, 1941.
One year later, he was with Royal Canadian Air Force 412 squadron in England, flying Spitfires. On August 19, 1942, he fought German planes over Dieppe as part of the air cover meant to protect the Canadian Army's infamous failed raid on the French Port. He flew three sorties that day, trying to make sure troops could make it off the beaches and back to the ships. The air battle was almost as one-sided as the land battle. The Royal Canadian Air Force and Royal Air Force lost 119 planes to the Luftwaffe's 46 to suffer one of the worst aerial defeats of the war.
Later that year, he was seconded to the Royal Air Force and posted to the Mediterranean island of Malta, where the British were desperately holding off attacks by the Germans and Italians. Fighting was ferocious and he was shot down. His flight of four Spitfires was over Sicily just before the Allied invasion in July, 1943, when they were attacked by 15 German fighters. The lead Royal Air Force pilot was killed, two Spitfires got away and Mr. STEWARD/STEWART/STUART bailed out.
As he floated down, he had a perfect view of an invasion fleet that was lined up for six kilometres or more off the coast of Sicily. He landed in the sea and was picked up by a British ship that was busily involved in an invasion and could not be concerned with returning a pilot to a base more than 100 kilometres away across the Malta Channel. With one thing and another, Mr. STEWARD/STEWART/STUART did not get back to his unit for many days. His squadron didn't know where he was, while back in Saskatchewan his family was told he had gone missing in action.
"Family legend is that, on hearing the news, his mother's hair turned white overnight," his son said.
Mr. STEWARD/STEWART/STUART managed to set matters straight a week later, but it was too late to save his mothers hair.
After his posting in Malta, he went to a fighter base in Scotland as a tactical fighter instructor. By then, he had done about 25 missions, which was the required number for a tour. He signed up for a second tour and in between was granted a month's home leave. He sailed for Halifax on a troop ship and then took a long train ride home to Saskatchewan. The clock started running the moment he left the ship and stopped when he returned to Halifax.
In the process, he happened to miss a lot of action. While he was away, the D-Day landings in Normandy occurred, and by the time he returned, his squadron was based on the Continent. He spent the rest of war flying over France, the Netherlands and Germany, all the while thinking about what he would do when it was all over.
He had taken overseas a book called Trees in Canada, and he always kept it by him. He had it in mind to become a forester, and after war applied to Saskatchewan Department of Forestry. As it happened, they needed pilots and he was soon in the air again. He quit when the provincial government decided on a round of pay cuts and he went to work for Territories Air Service, flying out of Fort Smith, then the capital of the Northwest Territories. He found that he loved the North and was never happier.
In 1952, Mr. STEWARD/STEWART/STUART joined Imperial Oil and flew Beavers, Otters and such larger propeller-driven aircraft as the Lockheed Lodestar and the DC-3. Four years later, he moved to Toronto, bought a house in Etobicoke and was soon piloting company personnel. He graduated to corporate jets in the early 1970s, and in 1974 became Imperial Oil's senior pilot. He flew executives and engineers into remote locations across the country. On one occasion, he took a side trip to pick up the Duke of Edinburgh in Greenland and fly him to Canada.
After his retirement in 1980, he kept busy as secretary-treasurer of the Canadian Fighter Pilots Association, and was a keen and successful stock-market investor. In his early days as a bush pilot, he bought and sold penny stocks in mining and oil, but as he grew older, he stuck to the blue-chip variety. His favourite: Imperial Oil, which he had started buying as part of a company stock program.
Lloyd Arthur STEWARD/STEWART/STUART was born in Southey, Saskatchewan., on March 23, 1920. He died in Toronto on April 16. He leaves sons Owen and Barry; brother, Alan; and sister, Netta. His wife Eleanor died last year.

Margaret Ann Dixon JEWISON " Dixie"
By Nalini STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, Tuesday, June 7, 2005, Page A20
Wife, mother, friend. Born November 25, 1930, in Toronto. Died November 26, 2004, of lung cancer, in Orangeville, Ontario, aged Dixie JEWISON could have had a career as a sculptor, interior designer, events manager or real-estate tycoon. She chose, instead, the identity of Mrs. Norman JEWISON, mother of Kevin, Michael and Jennifer, and she wore that identity as a badge of honour.
A graduate of Branksome Hall and the Ontario College of Art, Dixie is remembered by Branksome Friends Lou DRYDEN and Beverley ROCKETT as one of the most beautiful, and fun-loving women of her generation.
Dixie lived in Toronto's Beaches neighbourhood and Lou was often invited for weekends. During the day, they sat on the sand in front of the Balmy Beach Canoe Club and played bridge. At night, they went to dances and movies at the Canoe Club where Dixie was always the centre of attention because of her beauty and high spirits. While studying sculpture at Ontario College of Art, Dixie became a photographer's model and her face was on billboards across Toronto as the Black Cat cigarette girl.
Then Norman JEWISON arrived in her life. They were married in 1953 and the young wife devoted her energies to making a home for her family. As her husband became more successful, there were homes in many countries and Dixie bought these homes, decorated them, and filled them with Friends. Norman often jokes that he made more money from Dixie's real-estate investments in New York and Malibu than he did from his movies. She also set up temporary homes for her family at film sets around the world from Positano to Fort Chaffee, Munich to Tel Aviv. Her houses were open to Friends; she was one of the most generous people I knew.
She was Canada's unofficial ambassador in Los Angeles and London where talented Canadians made important contacts at her legendary parties. At Canada Day celebrations on the beach in Malibu, actors dressed as Mounties would greet the stars. Rod Steiger, Henry Mancini, Rock Hudson and Whoopi Goldberg were a few of her favourite guests.
In 1967, Dixie established the first childcare centre -- The Neighbours of Watts -- in south central Los Angeles with two of her closest Friends. Dixie was the founding vice-president and raised huge amounts of money by involving Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. Once the organization got under way, Dixie insisted that the leadership be turned over, from celebrity wives to the residents of Watts. Dixie was very proud of her role in The Neighbours of Watts -- a centre that continues to thrive.
The JEWISONs moved back to Canada in 1978 after more than 20 years abroad. Dixie now put her energy into promoting Canada's film industry. She had parties for the Toronto International Film Festival and later the Canadian Film Centre. She started an annual barbecue at her farm that is now held at the Canadian Film Centre because it became too large. Last year, 3,000 Canadian and international filmmakers and actors networked at the barbecue that Dixie started.
Dixie JEWISON had old-fashioned Canadian values. She was down-to-earth, loyal, unpretentious and never complained. In the last five years of her life she showed tremendous courage as she was diagnosed first with lung cancer and then throat cancer. She couldn't eat in the last year-and-a-half of her life. However, she always insisted she was "just fine" even as her voice became more and more hoarse and her breathing more and more laboured.
Dixie met all the stars of this world but she remained unaffected by them. Her greatest joy was her family, her country and her lifelong Friends. We miss her.
Nalini STEWARD/STEWART/STUART is a friend and neighbour of Dixie JEWISON.

Four dead in separate incidents in the Greater Toronto Area within less than 12 hours
By Timothy APPLEBY, Monday, August 1, 2005, Page A7
Toronto's homicide total for the year climbed to 38 yesterday after three disparate gunshot slayings in different corners of the city within less than 12 hours.
And just north of the city, Peel Region police were investigating the Greater Toronto Area's fourth homicide of the weekend after a woman was found suffering "severe trauma" in a basement apartment in Brampton.
In Toronto, one killing occurred shortly before dawn, as thousands of post-Caribana celebrants milled on downtown Yonge Street, and was witnessed by a police officer who chased and captured the alleged gunman nearby. Panicked onlookers fled as the gunfire erupted.
The three Toronto homicides came on the heels of a blood-soaked 48 hours less than a week earlier, when seven people were wounded in six different gun incidents that were also apparently unrelated.
The weekend violence took place just days after Statistics Canada released its annual crime report for 2004, which showed that the Greater Toronto Area had the lowest crime rate of any major Canadian city last year, with an 8.6 per cent reduction over The number of murders in Toronto dropped by 3 per cent last year, dipping to 64, even as the rate rose nationwide. (In 1991, the Toronto figure was 89, a record high.)
Together, those seemingly contrary trends suggest that while the city overall may be safer than a few years ago, the opposite holds true within the underworld, where by every measure there are more firearms available than ever before, notably handguns smuggled in from the United States.
"The biggest concern is, the number of people out there who know people who are carrying guns," Staff Insp. Jeff McGUIRE, who heads the homicide squad, said yesterday. "We need people to come forward and work with us so we can get them off the street."
The first of the weekend's slayings occurred in North York Saturday afternoon, when police were summoned by a 911 call from a 10-year-old boy living in a high-rise apartment on Flemington Road, close to where one of last weekend's shootings occurred.
Inside the apartment was Leroy WHITTAKER, 46, shot dead by bullets fired through the closed front door, apparently after a knock.
Two men seen loitering in the corridor a short while before the shooting are being sought.
As to whether Mr. WHITTAKER was the intended victim, "we don't know because the shooters themselves would not have known who was on the other side," Staff Insp. McGUIRE said.
"We're simply fortunate that the 10-year-old lad was not in the way."
Next to die, shortly before midnight Saturday, was Umathevan THIYAGARAJAH, 26, found in the well-lit parking lot of a small strip mall at Finch and Warden avenues in Scarborough.
Mr. THIYAGARAJAH, who appeared to have had no previous dealings with police, had been shot several times and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Several men were spied near where his body was found. Police yesterday urged any witnesses: to come forward.
Finally, at around 4: 30 a.m. yesterday, came the gunfire at Yonge and Dundas streets, killing Dwayne TAILOR/TAYLOR, 21, of Brampton, who died later in hospital.
Ajine STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, 24, of Mississauga, was arrested soon after the shooting and faces a charge of first-degree murder.
In Brampton, police responded to a 911 call about 1 p.m. yesterday after a man who was seen walking naked in the Williams Parkway and McLaughlin Road area said a crime had been committed.
Officers later discovered a 21-year-old woman "suffering from severe trauma to the head" in a nearby basement apartment, Constable Jennifer BRYER said.
The woman died of her injuries in hospital.
Police are treating her death as a homicide and have arrested the man, but he has not been charged. They say the man and woman knew each other.
Staff Insp. McGUIRE stressed that Toronto's weekend Caribana festivities appear not to have had any connection to the violence.
While much of the crowd packed into Dundas Square had been celebrating Caribana, he noted, the festival itself was by then long over and was almost entirely trouble-free.
"This had nothing to do with Caribana, it's a very unfortunate incident, I'm sure the people associated with Caribana just shake their heads."

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.

John earned an Ace designation with this night intruder squadron which became the Royal Canadian Air Force's top scoring squadron in World War 2. After the War, he attended the University of Toronto graduating in Aeronautical Engineering in 1949. He returned to the Royal Canadian Air Force with postings at Namao, Alberta; Winnipeg, Manitoba; Royal Military College, Kingston; Greenwood, Nova Scotia and National Defence Headquarters in Ottawa. Following integration of the services in 1967, he took early retirement and joined Northwest Industries, a division of CAE, in Edmonton becoming their Vice President, Technology. In the last 8 years of his working career, he served as Dean of Science and Technology at Georgian College in Barrie where he and Marg spent many enjoyable times sailing on Lake Simcoe. Not one to retire completely, C.J. (as he was known) designed and built his own lakeside home near Picton, Ontario where they lived until moving to Toronto in 1986 to be closer to their kids and growing numbers of grandchildren. He continued to fly until age 75 and maintained a close association with his beloved 418 Mosquito squadron buddies. In his own words, John 'had a marvelous life.' His family wishes to thank the staff at Sunnybrook Hospital Veteran's Wing for their excellent care. A private family service will be held to celebrate his life later in the new year. If wished, donations may be made to the charity of one's choice. 2005 Year of the Veteran

No smoke alarms in fatal fire
Retired couple die in bedroom; heavy smokers, police say
son frantically tries to douse fire with garden hose
By Leslie FERENC, Staff Reporter
A man who frantically tried to put out a blaze at his Scarborough home with a garden hose was unable to save his retired parents who were trapped in their second-floor bedroom.
Police say both Jack WILSON, 68, and his wife Sharon, 61, were heavy smokers and there were no smoke alarms in the home.
Emergency crews were called to 121 Hildenboro Square near Warden and McNicoll Aves. just after midnight Tuesday where they discovered the couple's son, Trevor WILSON, trying to put out the fire. Trevor, a Canada Post employee, had come home from work to find black smoke billowing from the house.
The couple was rushed to hospital but pronounced dead. Autopsies were being performed yesterday to determine the cause of death.
The Ontario Fire Marshal's Office is also investigating.
Fire officials say the blaze likely started in the kitchen but wouldn't confirm if it had been ignited by a smouldering cigarette tossed into a trash bin.
A melted plastic garbage can with cigarette butts was clearly visible amongst the charred debris sitting outside the front door of the home yesterday.
Fire Chief Bill STEWARD/STEWART/STUART confirmed there were no smoke alarms in the house.
"In this case, smoke alarms could most certainly have made the difference between life and death," he said in a release yesterday. Neighbour Chris BABANARAS, who has lived across the street from the WILSONs for 22 years, cried as he sat in his garage looking at their home, the smell of smoke still heavy in the air.
"They were a very nice family, a very quiet family," he said of Jack, a retired engineer, and wife Sharon, a nurse, and their two adult sons, Trevor and older brother Carey.
"It's hard to believe that I saw him (Jack) yesterday and he waved to me. I can't believe they are now gone."
A woman, who would only identify herself as a family friend, laid two bouquets of pink carnations next to a tree on the WILSONs' front lawn.
She said the couple's sons were together yesterday and "were pretty struck" by the deaths.
Neighbour David MILLER said he grew up with the WILSONs' sons, now in their late 20s and early 30s, and described the family as "quiet, nice people." He said he often saw Jack WILSON outside with Carey's young children.
"This is very sad and very tragic," MILLER added.
Lenny SPATAFORA, who lives directly across the street, said he arrived home about 11: 30 p.m. Monday "and didn't see anything unusual." About 20 minutes later, he could smell smoke.
"I thought my parents had been cooking and had burned something on the stove," he said yesterday.
SPATAFORA described the WILSONs as a great family.
"It's so sad to see this happen."
Yellow police tape cordoned off the property yesterday as fire officials continued their investigation.
Charred walls in the hallway of the house were clearly visible as the front door of the home remained open for most of the day yesterday. Blackened curtains fluttered through the broken windows of the front bedroom on the second floor.

Bernard BONSER, 'fireman's fireman'
By Rita DALY, Staff Reporter
After fighting one of the most devastating fires in downtown Toronto's history, Bernard BONSER barely had time to change his clothes and get to city hall to be appointed the new fire chief.
Through the early morning hours of May 9, 1977, BONSER had directed a crew of 150 firefighters to stop the Eaton's fire that destroyed half a dozen downtown stores and warehouses, and damaged Holy Trinity Church. His dedication on the eve of his high-ranking appointment was typical of the man who had battled blazes across the city for 31 years.
BONSER waged his final battle not with fire, but with cancer. He died on Wednesday at the age of 81, leaving his wife of 57 years, Helen, three children and numerous grandchildren.
"He was the type of person who was always eager to volunteer and step to the fore," said his son Bryan, an elementary school teacher who has fond childhood memories of the firemen's picnics and other social and fundraising activities put on by his father and his firefighting colleagues.
"He is a loss to us. He never forgot his roots and was always a well-respected individual," said Toronto Fire Chief William STEWARD/STEWART/STUART.
Born in 1923, Bernard Arthur BONSER joined the Royal Canadian Navy at 17 and was assigned to a gun crew as a seaman in World War 2.
He joined the fire department shortly after the war and moved up the ranks in short order: to captain in 1961, district chief in 1967, deputy chief in 1971, then chief six years later.
BONSER was very active in the firefighters' union, following in the footsteps of his father who played an international role in the carpenters' union.
In 1956, he was a key player in negotiations that eventually led to an arbitration ruling that reduced the firefighters' work week to 42 hours from 56, and led to the hiring of 250 new firefighting staff. He later became president of the Toronto Fire Fighters' Association, Local 113, and also took on a leadership role with the international firefighters' association.
In the 1980s, while chief of the department, he become president of the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs. His achievements were recognized nationally in 1985 when he was awarded the Order of Canada for his role as an advocate of fire safety and the fire service.
He retired in 1988 after serving the department for 41 years, remaining involved in some of his favourite charities, notably the Good Neighbours Club for homeless men.
"He was the fireman's fireman," said Bryan BONSER. "He was clever, he was well organized, he was an excellent negotiator known for his tact as well as general knowledge. He could be serious, but he also definitely enjoyed joking with the boys on the trucks."
A funeral service will be held tomorrow at St. George's Anglican Church in Pickering. A memorial service will be held Saturday at the Toronto Fire Academy.

Audrey peacefully departed this life at Ottawa Hospital - General Campus, surrounded by the love and support of her family.

Audrey spent her life in Toronto until January 2000, when she and Bill moved to Ottawa where Laura and Erich, and Mary and Bert and their families were able to assist Dad in caring for Audrey in her declining health. She especially enjoyed the celebration of her 60th wedding anniversary last July that brought together so many family and Friends. Audrey became physically disabled which necessitated a move to Starwood-Extendicare shortly after the anniversary celebration. The family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff and care providers of Starwood who cared for Audrey with affection and respect and ensured her stay there was comfortable. Family will receive Friends on Friday, April 29, 2005 at the Pine Hills Cemetery (625 Birchmount Road, Toronto, Ontario) from 1: 30 p.m. until the time of the funeral service in the Chapel at 2: 30 p.m. Interment to follow.

LEWIS, Megan (née CHARLES) (1926-2005)
After a two year valiant struggle following a stroke, Meg found peace on October 15, 2005. She left this world the hard way... but not without bringing so much happiness to everyone fortunate enough to have known her. She loved and lived for her family, her husband of 57 years, Vaughan, her four daughters, Susan (Mrs. Ronald WALLACE,) Lindsay, Ontario and their children Peter and Andrew; Janet (Mrs. James CUMMING), Atlanta, Georgia and their children Blair, Jared, Paxton and Leah; Carol (Mrs. Garry STEWARD/STEWART/STUART,) Burlington, Ontario and children Emily and Victoria; and Gillian (Mrs. Stephen MOORE,) Toronto. She also leaves four great-grandchildren. She is predeceased by her parents Mr. and Mrs. David CHARLES and her brother, Reverend Alwyn CHARLES. Born in Llanelli, Wales, Meg and her husband immigrated to Canada in 1952, a decision they never regretted. Upon moving to Toronto from Montreal she discovered the church that was to mean so much to her for the rest of her life; the Dewi Sant Welsh United Church, 33 Melrose Ave. A service in her honour will be held at a date to be determined and her ashes will be scattered on the St. Lawrence River in the Thousand Islands near the spot where so many joyful Lewis family reunions have been held over the years. We thank all those for their prayers, those who kept sending cards of comfort, those who visited and sang to her and those who simply came to speak to her in Welsh. We also find it difficult to adequately express the profound gratitude we owe to all of the wonderful staff at Thompson House, Don Mills, who gave Meg such outstanding loving care and comfort each and every day over the past two years. They will never be forgotten. In lieu of flowers, donations to her beloved church, Dewi Sant, or the Heart and Stroke Foundation will be greatly appreciated.

Damaged shelter lacked sprinklers
Facility still met building, fire codes
40-year-old man died in Sunday fire
By Dale Anne FREED, Staff Reporter
The Fred Victor Centre, where a 40-year-old man died in a fire Sunday night, met building and fire code standards even though it did not have sprinklers in residential areas, the centre's executive director says.
Sprinklers are located in the garbage area and parking and ground-level areas of the centre, which provides permanent housing for 194 previously homeless people, Mark ASTON said yesterday.
He said the fire code didn't require them in residential levels. Fire department spokesman David SHEEN confirmed that the four-storey centre complied with sprinkler standards.
Fire victim Abdirazak (Nero) KAILLIE was found in his second-floor apartment, next to the apartment where the blaze started, police Det. Matt MOYER said.
ASTON said smoking was a possible cause of the fire, but added, "that would be speculation at this point." He said smoking was permitted in the apartments.
KAILLIE's distraught sister and mother arrived at the fire scene Sunday night and spoke with police, MOYER said.
Born in Somalia, KAILLIE had lived in the centre for about 18 months, said Keith HAMBLY, director of Fred Victor's housing and shelter services.
"He was well liked in the community," HAMBLY said. It was a "fresh start for him."
One friend said KAILLIE was receiving disability payments.
About 50 Fred Victor residents were affected by the fire and were offered room at downtown shelters so they wouldn't have to go back on the streets, ASTON said.
"If we have a way to prevent such tragedies in the future then we have a responsibility to consider it," said Brendan AGNEW- ILER, a spokesperson for Mayor David MILLER.
Toronto Fire Chief Bill STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said he wants sprinklers made mandatory in all new residential construction. He said the department is supporting a private member's bill on mandatory sprinklers in new residential construction that is scheduled for second reading at Queen's Park on Thursday.
STEWARD/STEWART/STUART acknowledged that retrofitting residential buildings with sprinklers would be costly. "The industry indicates it costs about $3.50 to $4 per square foot," he said. If the Fred Victor board has the money, he said, "then in the interest of public safety, why not?"
STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said there were 259 fire deaths in Toronto between 1994 and 2004, of which 223 were on residential properties.

Star vet balanced tech, people skills
Heart attack strikes long-time employee at age of 69
Helped evolution from bulky computers to programming
By Patrick EVANS, Staff Reporter
Innovative, witty, full of love. It doesn't matter whom you ask, everyone describes Glenn EVERINGHAM the same way.
He thrived in an atmosphere of change. His legacy as a 30-year Toronto Star veteran was in bringing the circulation department up to speed in the age of technology, automating systems that hadn't changed in decades.
EVERINGHAM died of a heart attack December 14 at age 69 after receiving a clean bill of health from his doctor a few days before.
Born in Toronto on August 4, 1936, EVERINGHAM attended Givens Public School and Central Technical School. He kicked off his career at the Star in the payroll department in the mid-1950s. Those were low-tech days, when the office was full of cash and guarded by a man with a gun.
But when the first computers arrived at the Star -- lumbering giants that filled rooms -- he was fascinated by the possibilities they offered. He mastered the new technologies and moved on to a job in the data processing department as an information technology worker. But EVERINGHAM wanted to do more.
"He worked hard days and weekends at the Star, and he was working nights becoming a certified general accountant," said his second son, Adam, 43. In those years of working while going to school, EVERINGHAM's days were long. He would often sleep at the Star.
But the work paid off. He moved into the circulation department in the mid-to-late '70s and as controller in the department he revolutionized it with new technologies, said his oldest son, Mark, 47. EVERINGHAM brought in the Star's first subscriber database. He also brought in a computer program in the mid '80s that could tally how many papers had been sold. Prior to that it was all done with pen and paper, based on information the paper's truck drivers brought back at the end of their day.
Former colleague in circulation Martin THALL said small luxuries newspaper subscribers take for granted -- calling to suspend subscription when going on holiday -- were all new in EVERINGHAM's time. The technology he spearheaded made these things possible.
When he retired from the Star in the mid '80s, EVERINGHAM kept active as a computer programmer. In the months before his death he was still busy writing programs for the payroll department in Adam's business.
Another former colleague in circulation, Dave STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, recalled EVERINGHAM. " The man would sit there almost in silence at a meeting. You'd swear he'd fallen asleep, and then he'd suddenly come out with a profound statement that would send the meeting in a completely different direction."
But for all the technological savvy, co-workers and family remember him most for his humour and heart.
"He taught me the importance of respecting the people who work with you. That was more important than browbeating them," STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said.
Adam recalled a family friend with no relatives and no money who developed Alzheimer's disease. "My dad took care of him," Adam said. EVERINGHAM paid for the man to be in a home until he died almost five years later.
There was a lot of love in EVERINGHAM's life.
He met his wife, Tracy, in the mid '50s when, as a favour for a friend, he picked up Tracy and her mother in his car when they arrived in Canada from England. EVERINGHAM and Tracy said they fell in love at first sight and their relationship deepened throughout a 48-year marriage. "My mom used to sit with my dad every morning and have a tea before he went to work," Adam said.
Besides his wife and sons Mark and Adam, EVERINGHAM's leaves daughter Alison, 35, and five grandchildren.
The family shared memories of EVERINGHAM at a small service Tuesday.
