BECVAR, Milan
Age 78, passed away on the morning of June 6, 2005 almost twelve years after his beloved wife, Marie STOKLASEK. He is deeply missed by his son Milan BECVAR, brother Vaclav BECVAR, granddaughter Amber BECVAR and all those who knew him. He is forgotten by none. Born on March 1, 1927 in Pilsen to Vaclav and Alzbeta (THYN) BECVAR, Milan BECVAR moved with his family to Prague and excelled in school. Unfortunately his higher education was cut short by the Fascist occupation. A veteran of the Resistance, Milan BECVAR risked his life with his fellow patriots to fight for freedom and survived forced labour deportation at the age of 17 by the Nazis. Milan escaped and made his way back to Prague with the liberating forces. After the war Milan BECVAR returned to school, married and had successful careers as a Technical and Vocational Teacher in the aeronautics industry and as an engineer in the beverage industry. Milan enjoyed music, nature, the sun, the ocean and all life had to give to the fullest. Milan BECVAR always remembered an experience from the end of the war in Europe in spring of 1945, where in the darkness of the night he found shelter beside an old stone wall in the suburb of a small city whose name he did not know. All night bullet tracers flared overhead but the thick stone wall held. Next day the first rays of the morning light lit up his hiding place and he saw he was near a huge wrought iron door in the stone wall which was the entrance to a cemetery. The shooting had stopped and as the sun rose, surprisingly the birds began to sing. It was then, in the increasing light that he was able to read the letters around the top of that door. "Visitor, Stop And Look At Us. We Were What You Are And You Will Be What We Are." As in nature, so in life, everything has to come to an end that started at the beginning.

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

Gerard BESSETTE, Writer: 1920-2005
Novelist whose works were compared to that of Albert Camus twice won the Governor-General's Literary Award
By M.J. STONE, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, March 30, 2005, Page S9
Montreal -- As the author of nine novels, a collection of short stories and poetry, Gerard BESSETTE was a two-time winner of the Governor-General's Literary Award.
Mr. BESSETTE, who retired from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, in 1979, also produced numerous critical works that delved into the psychology of Quebec literature in the 20th century. He may well have examined his own writing, namely Le Libraire. One of his most recognized works, it is an existentialist novel about a book-store employee that takes a harsh look at the cultural conditions of small-town Quebec in the 1950s. Considered a Quiet Revolution classic, Le Libraire is frequently compared with Albert Camus's L'Étranger.
Gerard BESSETTE was born in a village on the South Shore of the St. Lawrence near Montreal. In 1944, he graduated from the École normale Jacques-Cartier and was later one of the first scholars to obtain a doctorate in French literature from Université de Montréal in 1950.
He began his career as a poet in 1947. His poem Le Coureur was awarded second prize at the Concours littéraires du Québec, and he went on to represent Canada in the poetry section of the 1948 Olympic Games. But his fascination with verse suddenly evaporated. "I quit writing poetry at the age of 25 or so... Then there was a long silence as far as creative writing was concerned. I started again when I was 36 or 37."
He liked to describe how language and class informed his writing. "I was still torn, not only on levels of language, but also on levels of society. I was from a lower-class milieu, but because of my studies, I was out of it." His first novel, La Bagarre, exposed the symbiotic relationship at work between those elements he divined within. Eventually, his command of voice and his sense of self as an academic were intensified as a consequence of his prose writing.
La Bagarre (1958), Le Libraire (1960) and Les Pédagogues (1961) all explored a similar Quiet Revolution theme of the repressive influences of culture and tradition in Quebec society during the 1950s.
Regarding the popularity of Le Libraire and its lead character, Hervé Jodoin, who resembles the anti-hero Mersault in Camus's L'Étranger, Mr. BESSETTE wrote: "I think that in a way he is the forerunner of the revolt among the young. You know at the beginning he has dropped everything. And had trouble with the Catholic church. Then he gets into the book business and again has trouble with the church. And then he throws everything away and mocks the old regime."
All of his novels are tinged with rebellion, directly and indirectly challenging the status quo and exploring the role of the individual in relation to the expectations of the culture they inhabit. To Steven URQUHART, a doctoral student at Queen's University, Mr. BESSETTE's work uses a great deal of symbolism that is related to phantasmagorical imagery.
"In fact, those who are considered or depicted as monstrous at first are nothing more in reality than human," said Mr. URQUHART, whose doctoral thesis examines grotesque representations and allusions to the notion of monstrosity in Mr. BESSETTE's novels. "The authority figures in his novels end up being the real monsters."
Mr. BESSETTE's later style was inspired by the nouveau roman experimental literary form created by French novelists in the 1950s that included Alain Robbe-Grillet and Nathalie Sarraute. Part of the nouveau roman technique is to eliminate character, plot development and authorial subjectivity to present the reality as pure and uncontaminated as possible. Mr. BESSETTE was a devout advocate of the Freudian psychocritique school of criticism developed by the French scholar Charles Mauron. His works of literary analysis include Littérature en ébullition in 1968 and Trois romanciers québécois in 1973. Regarding his exploration of Freudian literary theory, Mr. BESSETTE once said that psychocriticism gives the reader a feeling of power: "You have an impression and/or illusion that you are discovering things that the writer himself did not know. That's a great satisfaction."
His writing was influenced by a teaching career that began at the University of Saskatchewan in 1946. He also taught at Duquesne University and Royal Military College Kingston, as well as at Queen's. In 1982, he was an invited professor at Yale.
Mr. BESSETTE received the Governor-General's Literary Award for L'Incubation in 1965 and Le Cycle in 1971. He was elected to the Royal Society of Canada in 1966 and, in 1980, was awarded Quebec's Athanase-David Literary Prize.
Gerard BESSETTE was born on February 25, 1920, in Ste-Anne-de-Sabrevois, Québec. He died on February 20, 2005, in Kingston, Ontario He is survived by his wife, Irene BAKOWSKI- BORYS.

Farmer-politician was auditor-general's dad
By M.J. STONE, Thursday, June 9, 2005, Page S9
Ottawa -- Ken FRASER was a dairy farmer, a Liberal backbencher in the Quebec National Assembly and the father of Canada's Auditor-General, Sheila FRASER. Mr. FRASER, of Huntingdon, Quebec, died on June 1 in Ottawa. He was 87.
Kenneth James FRASER was born in Dundee, Quebec, on October 17, 1917, and later took over the family farm that had belonged to the FRASERs since 1820. In 1950, he was elected to the Dundee town council. Sixteen years later, he won a seat in the National Assembly in the riding of Huntingdon by 45 votes.
During his tenure, he worked tirelessly toward the creation of the Huntingdon County Hospital. But he had a falling out with the Liberals in 1974 after then premier Robert Bourassa introduced Bill 22. Mr. FRASER resented the language legislation, he said, because it undermined individual rights. He lost his seat in the 1976 election.

Johann SHAW, Chatelaine Of Expo 67 (1911-2005)
Hostess of Canada's centennial celebrations fixed Charles de Gaulle with an icy stare after he declared 'Vive le Québec libre!' He later sought her understanding but failed to get it
By M.J. STONE, Special to the Globe and Mail, Monday, October 24, 2005, Page S8
She was at Montreal's city hall on July 24, 1967, when French president Charles de Gaulle, playing to the aspirations of the separatists in the crowd, delivered his resounding Vive le Québec libre! speech. It was a perceived slight that marred Canada's centennial celebrations, and as the official chatelaine of Expo 67, Johann SHAW found the French president's provocations to be a birthday-party faux pas. While others cheered and hollered, Mrs. SHAW remained fixed in her chair, her icy stare locked disdainfully on the French president. Later that evening, in her official capacity, she was on hand to greet a slew of official guests, including Mr. de Gaulle, as they arrived for a state banquet. There followed a brief conversation with Mrs. SHAW: The French head of state spoke sheepishly of his breech of protocol, intimating contritely that, "Sometimes old men get carried away." By all accounts, it did not pass muster.
Impeccably poised and dignified, Mrs. SHAW entertained more than 50 dignitaries during the summer of 1967, including the Queen and Prince Philip, Jackie Kennedy, Princess Grace of Monaco and U.S. president Lyndon Johnson. A pillar of strength and courage, Mrs. SHAW confessed that her hostessing responsibilities were sometimes overwhelming but maintained that the world's fair was the most wonderful experience of her life. Occurring just months after the death of her only child, Robert, she said that her only regret was that her son hadn't been there to share the excitement.
Julius Grey, a Montreal lawyer who was Friends with Mrs. SHAW and her late husband, Robert, described the couple as extraordinarily stoical about the loss of their son. "Other relationships might have buckled under the pressure of such a tragic loss. But Robert and Johann were models of composure."
She grew up in Ontario and in 1935 met her future husband, Robert Fletcher SHAW, then an engineering student at McGill University, while working at the Manoir Richelieu in Malbaie, Quebec They married the same year on December 24 so, as Mrs. SHAW was fond of recalling, "we could be together for Christmas." Robert SHAW, who was president of The Foundation Company of Canada, was named the deputy commissioner-general of Expo in 1963 and was responsible for the construction of the world's fair.
The role of Expo 67 hostess was offered to Mrs. SHAW unexpectedly, just weeks before the opening ceremonies. Thérèse Dupuy, the wife of Expo commissioner-general Pierre Dupuy, had reached a marital impasse with her husband and flatly refused to attend any function with him in the official capacity as chief hostess. As the deputy commissioner's wife, Mrs. SHAW was asked to fulfill the portfolio. The appointment came on the heels of difficult news. The plane that carried her son, a commercial pilot, to his death when it crashed near Baie-Saint-Paul months earlier had just recently been recovered.
Diana Thebaud-Nicholson, who was employed with Expo 67's director of operations, said that Mrs. SHAW was charming, discreet and regal. "She was incredibly poised when you consider how the tragic loss of her son still cast its shadow over her life. Never haughty, she made time for everyone. Johann and her husband were marvellous people. She was a no-nonsense type and ideally suited to graciously represent the country."
Despite the fact his wife outranked him on the protocol list, Robert SHAW beamed with pride, recalled Yves Jasmin, who was in charge of public relations during the world's fair. "They were an exquisite couple, blessed with an enormous love and respect for one another."
Mrs. SHAW would often joke that she was Robert's second-greatest love, his first being his sailboat. "If it ever came to a choice between me and his boat," she would smile, "I fear he would chose the latter."
Following Expo 67's closing ceremonies, the impeccable chatelaine returned to her former life and continued her volunteer work with the Montreal General Hospital. She and her husband celebrated their 60th anniversary in 1995. For the past 10 years, she had grown increasingly ill, even more so after the death of her husband four years ago.
Johann SHAW was born Johann Alexandra MacINNES in Toronto on December 9, 1911. She died of pneumonia on September 22, 2005. She was 93.

Week Of Remembrance: Charles WILLIAMS (1922-2005)
Tank commander fought his way across Normandy, Holland and Germany with the Sherbrooke Fusiliers and once dished out orders to a brigadier-general
By M.J. STONE, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, November 7, 2005, Page S8
Montreal -- He was a daring but lowly lieutenant who once gave orders to a brigadier-general. Charles Mecum WILLIAMS was a tank commander with the Sherbrooke Fusiliers in France, the Lowlands and Germany whose quiet, unwavering presence inspired those who fought beside him.
"Charles was a fearless leader whose courage had a greater effect on his men than officers of superior rank," said T. Garry GOULD, honorary Colonel of the Sherbrooke Hussars regiment.
The two men had been students at McGill University in Montreal. Both enlisted in the army in 1942 and met while training with the Canadian Armoured Corps at Camp Borden, Ontario
Mr. WILLIAMS, who had been taught to shoot at an early age by his father, quickly made his mark during target practice. At first, his sergeant instructor was unimpressed and told him to take better aim. As far as he could tell, Mr. WILLIAMS kept missing the target. "Sir, I couldn't miss that target," protested Mr. WILLIAMS.
The sergeant examined the target and discovered his student had repeatedly hit the bull's eye. As a consequence, Mr. WILLIAMS was immediately promoted to rifle instructor.
By the time they began their march across Normandy in June of 1944, he had swapped his rifle for a tank and was all about business. He was known for his ability to make split-second decisions under pressure, said Col. GOULD. One day, their tank came under fire from a German bazooka crew hidden in a ditch. "The tank's .75 millimetre gun refused to reload and its machine gun jammed, so Charlie, who was colour-blind and consequently was never fooled by camouflage, whipped out his .38 Webley revolver" and saved the day.
In August of 1944, Mr. WILLIAMS was part of Operation Totalize, an action during which Canadian, Scottish and Polish troops penetrated the fierce German defences of inland Normandy and advanced toward Falaise. He was wounded when concussion from a mortar round caused the tank hatch to slam closed on his hand. He refused to seek medical treatment, insisting that injured fingers were no excuse to the leave the battlefield, but when gangrene set in a few days later and spread up his arm, he was ordered back to a dressing station.
"A man of lesser courage would have sought medical attention immediately," said Mr. GOULD. His friend had been assigned to lead the squadron into battle, and anyone else would have used a mangled hand as good reason to turn over command.
Mr. WILLIAMS returned to England for surgery on his hand and was recalled to his regiment in December as a reconnaissance officer. One day in Holland, he found himself in the unusual situation of placing a brigadier-general under his command. He was commanding a brigade when Brigadier-General T.J. RUTHERFORD arrived from headquarters. Eager to see some real fighting, the brigadier asked the Sherbrooke's commanding officer if he could join a tank crew to the front lines for a day or two.
"None of the officers was too keen to volunteer, but Charlie remembered from his training days that the brigadier was an excellent gunner," said his son Dominick WILLIAMS. "He took the assignment, but only on the condition that RUTHERFORD agree to perform the duties of a trooper."
The tank rumbled off in the direction of the fighting with a brigadier for a gunner. Like the rest of the crew, he unquestioning took orders from Mr. WILLIAMS, who at that time held the rank of lieutenant. The hours ticked by and when the brigadier failed to return from the front, Headquarters became worried.
"When operations finally contacted Charlie's tank by radio, all protocol between the crew and the general had vanished," said Dominick WILLIAMS. " The radio operator was on such familiar terms with RUTHERFORD that he nudged the general in the ribs with his boots and said: 'Hey brig, you're wanted on the horn.' "
Overhearing the exchange, the situation proved too much for headquarters. The brigadier was recalled and so ended Mr. WILLIAMS' most unusual command.
In later fighting, Mr. WILLIAMS helped break through the Siegfried Line in Germany in February of 1945. He returned to Canada in 1946 and was discharged with the rank of captain.
After the war, Mr. WILLIAMS returned to McGill and in 1949 graduated as a mechanical engineer. First joining Consolidated Paper Corporation in Grand-Mere, Quebec, he moved to the United States and ended up at James River Paper Corporation in Richmond, Va.
He retired in 1987 and, with his wife, Jill, returned to Ontario.
Charles Mecum WILLIAMS was born on May 23, 1922, in New Jersey. He died of Parkinson's disease on September 15, 2005, in Niagara-on-the-Lake. He leaves his second wife, Jill, and his sons from his first marriage: Dominick, Andrew, Christopher and Sean.

He led 'The Patricias' in the Korean War
By Tom HAWTHORN. Tuesday, November 29, 2005, Page S9
Victoria -- Jim STONE, the fierce disciplinarian who famously commanded the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry during the Korean War, has died. He was 97.
In April, 1951, the Canadians were defending Hill 677 on the approaches to Seoul near the village of Kap'yong. They were vastly outnumbered by an advancing Chinese force. The commanding officer's orders were precise in their instruction: "Be steady! Kill, and don't give way."
The defenders withstood waves of assaults, even ordering an artillery barrage on their position during one desperate engagement. After two days and nights of fierce fighting, the Canadians had held the hill at the loss of only 10 men killed and 23 wounded. Enemy losses were substantial.
Big Jim STONE's Patricias, as they became known, were awarded the U.S. Presidential Distinguished Unit Citation.
Mr. STONE arrived in Korea as a decorated officer of the Second World War, during which he had been awarded the Military Cross and the Distinguished Service Order (with bar). He gained another bar to the Distinguished Service Order in Korea.
He was named to the Order of Canada in 1984 for his charitable work.
James Riley STONE was born on August 2, 1908, at Winterbourne, Gloucestershire. He died Thursday at a veterans' home in suburban Victoria.
