Royce FRITH, Lawyer, Politician, Diplomat 1923-2005
As canny as he was charming, he never seriously ran for office and instead horse-traded his way into the Senate before being sent to London as High Commissioner, writes Sandra MARTIN. An enthusiastic amateur thespian, he above all relished the drama of the 1995 turbot wars against Spanish fishermen
Saturday, March 26, 2005, Page S9
Tall, patrician, and impeccably dressed, Royce FRITH was a natural communicator who moved through life with charm and grace. A lawyer by training, a Liberal by avocation, and a performer by instinct, he had the potential to be either chief justice of the Supreme Court or prime minister. That he was neither was a mystery to many, but the most likely explanation was fourfold: He was intensely private; his many talents, which included acting and singing, tempted him to enjoy life in the broadest sense; he needed to make a living; and, although he relished influence, he wasn't hungry enough to seek real power.
Mr. FRITH suffered two great tragedies in his life -- the breakdown of his marriage followed by his estranged wife's premature death in 1976, and the death four years later of his son Greg from malignant melanoma at age 25 -- but he kept his anguish to himself and never really spoke about these losses even with his closest Friends. He maintained the same strict privacy in the last few years about his own struggle with cancer. Even many of his closest Friends did not know the extent of his illness.
He served his country as a member of the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism, as a Senator during the Trudeau and Mulroney eras, and perhaps most famously as the High Commissioner to England and Northern Ireland who saved Canada House and who rallied British fishermen to the Canadian cause during the "turbot war" with the Spanish in the mid-1990s.
Earlier this week, senators from all sides of the Upper Chamber rose to pay tribute to Mr. FRITH. Liberal Joyce FAIRBURN noted that he had "cut a swath through this place with a potent mix of intellect, talent, humour, stubbornness, skill and commitment that challenged the rest of us to think and act well beyond the boundaries of this chamber." Conservative Lowell MURRAY, who had often "crossed swords" with Mr. FRITH, especially during the 1990 G.S.T. filibuster, praised him as "a model of bilingualism," and an "enjoyable, engaging and interesting companion and a great raconteur." Long-time political strategist Dorothy DAVEY, speaking on behalf of herself and her husband, former Senator Keith DAVEY, said, "he brought intelligence and élan to every position he held and joy and warmth to every Friendship he graced and every room he entered,"
Royce Herbert FRITH was born in Lachine, Quebec, the only son of George Harry FIRTH and Annie Beatrice ROYCE. He was educated at Lachine High School and transferred to Parkdale Collegiate after the family moved to Toronto in the mid-1930s. He graduated from the University of Toronto in 1946 and Osgoode Hall in 1949 and then did a Diplôme d' études supérieures (droit) at the University of Ottawa. By then, he had married Elizabeth DAVISON, a professional singer whom he had met through The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir.
Back in Toronto, the FRITHs lived in Leaside and Mr. FRITH practised law on his own for nearly two years before joining two colleagues to form the firm of Magwood, Frith and Pocock. He made his political affiliation to the Liberal party early, serving as national treasurer of the Young Liberal Association in 1949. He got involved in local politics by sitting on Leaside town council in 1951 and 1952 and serving as reeve in 1953. He won the nomination as the provincial Liberal candidate for York East in 1955, but lost by more than 7,000 votes to Hollis BECKETT, the Conservative candidate.
He never ran for public office again. Former Senator John NICHOL thinks of Mr. FRITH as a Renaissance man. He speculates that he didn't actively pursue a career in elected politics because "his interests were so broad, in the arts and music, that I don't think he wanted to limit himself to the treadmill existence of an member of Parliament, or worse, a cabinet minister."
Instead he became a strategist and an organizer, becoming president of the Ontario Liberal Association in 1960, a position he held until 1962. By then, he was one of the key members of Cell 13, a group organized by Keith DAVEY, then national director of the Liberal Party, to build up electoral support for Lester PEARSON and his brand of reform liberalism throughout the country after the party's disastrous showings in the 1957 and 1958 federal elections. One of Cell 13's key activities, as described by Christina McCall-Newman in her book Grits, was "travelling show-and tell demonstrations of canvassing, speaking, and advertising methods" for novice candidates, collected under the rubric of the School of Practical Politics. Mr. FRITH, was a key trainer in these "campaign colleges."
Before the 1963 election that gave Mr. PEARSON his first minority government, the perfectly bilingual Mr. FRITH was a practising lawyer, the host of a television program called Telepoll on the newly formed CTV network, and an applicant before the Board of Broadcast Governors for a licence to establish a private radio station in Windsor, close to the border with the United States.
He got the licence, much to the annoyance of Windsor member of Parliament Paul MARTIN, who thought it should go to a local, and four months later relinquished it in favour of his silent partner, media czar Geoffrey STIRLING.
Mr. DAVEY was not pleased at these public rufflings of Liberal party solidarity, which provided John DIEFENBAKER with fuel for his scathing wit. In his 1986 book, The Rainmaker, he wrote: "Though never quite a dilettante, Royce was not prepared to commit totally to anything, least of all a political career." He went on to say that he regarded Mr. FRITH as "a squandered political resource" who might even have been prime minister. "Too often, however, he slid by on his remarkable personality."
Mr. PEARSON did not share that view. One of his first acts as Prime Minister was to establish the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism, with Mr. FRITH as one of ten commissioners. He served the Commission faithfully and well, saying at one point in the hearings that: "If one section of the country sees it as consisting of a majority and a minority while the other sees it as an equal partnership, this does not provide a fertile ground for the exchange of culture. Until we can find ways to change these attitudes, the present conflict will continue."
Earlier this week, Keith SPICER, who was appointed Canada's first Commissioner of Official Languages by Pierre TRUDEAU in 1970, paid tribute to Mr. FRITH who served as his legal adviser. "Royce's advice, in those days when language was still a minefield of anger, misunderstanding and prejudice, was fundamental to the success of the Official Languages Act."
As canny as he was charming, Mr. FRITH struck himself an advantageous deal when the Liberals wanted him to be Ontario campaign manager in the late 1970s. Perhaps Mr. FRITH knew how hard it would be to deliver Ontario to the Liberals in the wake of Mr. TRUDEAU's imposition of the War Measures Act and wage and price controls. He was willing to give up his lucrative law practice to serve the party but he asked for, and received, an appointment to the Senate in 1977. He then took on running the Ontario campaign in the 1979 election, the election that saw Mr. TRUDEAU trounced by Joe CLARK's Progressive Conservatives.
In the Senate, Mr. FRITH was an active and gifted debater and served as deputy leader of the government from 1980 to 1984, deputy leader of the Opposition from 1984 to 1991 and leader of the Opposition from 1991. Working in Ottawa gave him the opportunity to spend more time in nearby Perth, his mother's ancestral home in the Ottawa Valley, and to indulge his passion for amateur theatricals, including playing Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady. "Quite frankly," said Senator David SMITH, "he was better looking than Rex Harrison and he had a real polish and flair."
He resigned his Senate seat in 1994, five years before mandatory retirement at age 75, to become High Commissioner to London, his final and most triumphant period of public life. He waged two major campaigns. Under his predecessor Fredrik EATON, appointed by Brian MULRONEY, there was a serious danger that the lease on Canada House in its flagship location in Trafalgar Square in London, was going to be allowed to lapse. Mr. FRITH was appalled and did his utmost to point out that losing Canada House was going to be a blow to Canadian tradition and prestige. He also discovered that under the terms of the lease, Canada had to restore the building to its original condition before handing it back to the Crown. Instead of saving money, giving up Canada House was going to cost a great deal. That proved a winning argument in those cost-conscious days.
Former Liberal Cabinet minister Brian Tobin, now a lawyer in the private sector, had trained as a young candidate with Mr. FRITH in one of the many campaign colleges. He appreciated Mr. FRITH's brand of Liberalism. "He understood the private sector very well, but he also had a huge heart and understood that not only did you have to produce wealth in this society, you have to be fair to those who have fewer advantages."
But what really endeared Mr. FRITH to him was the role he played in the turbot wars when Mr. Tobin was federal minister of fisheries. Members of the fishing community in Cornwall started flying Canadian flags because they were upset by the over-fishing that they themselves were seeing by the Spanish and the Portuguese and they sympathized with Canada's position. Mr. FRITH went to visit them to say thank you. "He did a marvellous job," said Mr. Tobin. "He was such an articulate, persuasive personality that he could walk into a community he had never been in before in his life at a time like that and really embody Canada in the most positive sense of the word."
When asked if he had a favourite memory of Mr. FRITH, he said, "I see this big tall guy in a bow tie with chiselled features, big grin, flashing eyes looking for the next big cause, bare knuckles and all, to embrace. And that's Royce."
If Mr. FRITH was disappointed when he was recalled in 1996 to make way for former Cabinet minister Roy MacLaren to succeed him in London, he kept it to himself.
The Vancouver law firm now called Borden Ladner Gervais invited him to join them as a consultant on British and European affairs. The climate was better than in Ottawa and he had Friends there, especially former Senators John Nichol and George Van Roggen. He quickly became the centre of a social circle that revolved around the Vancouver Symphony, the board of Pearson College and the Vancouver Club. "Royce would walk in every day," said David Smith, "looking like he had just come off Jermyn Street, tailored by Savile Row. I never needed to book anything [when I went to Vancouver], all I had to do was go to the Vancouver Club and there he would be looking like a million dollars."
Mr. FRITH's daughter Valerie also moved to Vancouver where she taught for a number of years in the publishing program at Simon Fraser University. He never remarried, although he had many close women Friends, most notably Hillary Haggan in recent years.
Royce Herbert FRITH was born in Lachine, Quebec, on November 12, 1923. He died of pneumonia as a complication of malignant myeloma at home in Vancouver on March 17, 2005. He was 81. He is survived by his daughter Valerie and her family.

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

Editor set bar high for writers
Created in-house training program
Anglican Church recognized work
By Paul LEGALL Torstar News Service, Hamilton Spectator
If Larry PERKS were editing this story, he'd be looking for short, snappy sentences, proper grammar and correct punctuation.
The British-born newsman, who died at his Hamilton home on October 14, was a tough taskmaster who demanded the highest standards from his reporters and wouldn't hesitate to demand a rewrite if a story wasn't up to snuff. He was also remembered by former colleagues at the Hamilton Spectator as an inspiring teacher, mentor and an English gentleman who treated everyone with respect.
While he won't get a chance to edit his own obituary, he would be pleased to know it was written by a crime reporter, said former Hamilton Spectator executive John GIBSON.
"He had a real affinity for crime reporters and crime reporting," recalled GIBSON, who started working for Perks on the police beat in the late 1960s.
On a personal level, he said PERKS was able to achieve a friendly relationship with his reporters while maintaining his distance as a boss.
"An editor has to be a boss, coach and occasionally a friend," GIBSON said.
"Larry was a friend. He was a good man."
Born and raised in England, PERKS was just 14 when the printer's ink started coursing through his veins and he began his career, first as a copy boy. After a stint in Australia, he joined the Moose Jaw Times-Herald in the late 1950s, when he was 29.
In the 1960s and early '70s, he worked for the St. Catharines Standard and Hamilton Spectator. At the Spectator, he was city editor for a few years and in 1973 started the first in-house reporter training program in Canada. It was based on the Fleet Street approach for teaching young journalists and was offered as an alternative to university and college programs.
PERKS taught journalism at Ryerson for 20 years and worked part-time for 13 as an editor and reporter at the Toronto Star.
For aspiring young reporters, PERKS could be an intimidating presence.
He was a large man and looked as if he'd walked right off Fleet Street in his tweed jacket, complete with pipe and greying beard.
While he was involved in secular journalism, PERKS also carried on a parallel career as editor of the Niagara Anglican.
His two daughters and wife Roddie also worked on the paper. For his outstanding church work, PERKS was awarded the Order of Niagara from the Anglican Diocese of Niagara. He was also an honorary lay canon at Christ's Church Cathedral in Hamilton.
Canon Charles STIRLING said PERKS maintained his good spirits despite enduring health problems for several years, including chronic kidney failure.
PERKS died of a suspected heart attack.

PETERSEN, Niels Forrester (1912-2005)
On November 25th, at his home in Toronto, Niels taught us how to die with as much panache as he had taught us how to live. He passed away peacefully at 10: 30 p.m., surrounded by family and Friends, amid, laughter and tears, stories and songs. Niels was predeceased by his beloved wife Betty, his parents Niels and Amelia, and his sisters Irene and Thora. He will be deeply missed by his son Charles, daughter-in-law Riki TUROFSKY, daughter Jane and much loved grandchildren Corbett, Niels and James (Lara) PETERSEN, and Miranda, Jennifer and Katie BURFIELD. He will be greatly missed by his niece Victoria (Ken SPARKS,) and by many Friends including Else KILDEGAARD, and Niels Kildegaard PEDERSEN of Denmark, Doris LAFRENIER, Gordon FOOTE, David and Cathy WILKES, Saturday morning coffee klatch Friends Marie and Jim McGORMAN, Tessa BUCHAN, Julie and Mike PARKER and their wonderful daughter Katelyn, by Garry HANRAHAN, Oksana CHUYKO and also by long-time business associates and Friends Ted TREMAIN and Jim McMYN, and by Brenda WHITE/WHYTE who cared for him and made him laugh to his last hours. Niels was born July 3, 1912 in Ansdell, Lancashire. He was educated in Lytham Saint Annes and in Copenhagen, Denmark, before emigrating to Canada in 1929. Niels began a more than 70-year association with the Young Men's Christian Association of Canada when he joined West End Young Men's Christian Association, becoming Chairman of the National Board of Canada, and Chair of the International Finance Committee in Geneva, Switzerland. He was awarded the Fellowship of Honour by the Young Men's Christian Association in 1982. Niels met his beloved wife, Betty BAUCKHAM, at Young Men's Christian Association Geneva Park in 1938, and managed to engage her interest by disabling her boyfriend with a rigourous course of gymnastics. They were married in Toronto in 1942, shortly before Niels joined the Queen's Own Rifles. Flat feet kept Niels from serving overseas. During his service career he trained new recruits in physical fitness, including one grateful Officer who told him 50 years later that his training kept him alive on the beaches of Normandy. While in the army, Niels completed a three-year business correspondence course from Queen's University in one year, leading to a 60-year career in business. Niels was President and Chairman of the Board of Sterling Trust, and Chairman of Wellington Trust. He guided Investors Finance Corporation Limited and Commercial Financial for many decades. Niels' passion for boating, begun at 50 when his son, Charles, taught him how to sail, led to hours of peace and challenge in his much loved Nonsuch sailboats both in Florida and Ontario. He enjoyed photography, travel, classical music, and walking. A more recent hobby was following sailing races and reading newspapers from around the world on his computer. He particularly enjoyed listening to Rev. Dr. Andrew STIRLING, broadcast on the internet from Timothy Eaton Church, on the Sundays he was not able to get to service. Saturday morning coffee with Friends at the St. Lawrence Market demonstrated his lifelong gift, an ability to talk with anyone, about anything, at anytime, with laughter and zest. The family wishes to thank Dr. Vincent CHIEN and the A Team at St. Michael's Hospital, for their remarkable care during his final month, and Dr. David GREENBERG for his special kindness.

"Grandma" will also be greatly missed by many Friends, extended families and children who were part of her everyday life. The family of Dorothy wish to express sincere thanks and appreciation to everyone who helped care for and love grandma. It is always difficult when someone close to you passes away. However, having caring compassionate nurses and support workers that assisted in the care of our mom, grandmother, great grandmother pass on peacefully and help us deal with our immense grief has helped. Doreen and Allen YOUNG were her primary caregivers and would like to send a special thankyou to Linda WHEELER, our palliative care nurse, Sheila RILEY and Susan WHITE/WHYTE, Karen from The Red Cross, Liz SMITH and Susan MUIR, the services of Community Care Access Centre, and Dr. REMPEL. Cremation has taken place and interment at Greenwood Cemetery will take place in the near future when Frank and Dorothy will be together again... Side by Side... Rest in Peace (xoxoxo). In lieu of flowers donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated. Hug me today, for tomorrow I go, I'm sorry I can't stay, the angels told me so. Out of your arms and into your dreams, I am leaving you now... you know what that means. Don't cry too long because I'm gone, I'm still watching over you. Forever long.
