Bill OWEN, 61: Street-level crusader
Bill OWEN fought to make Toronto more accessible
Patient, pragmatic teacher led battle for sloped curbs
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Bill OWEN left his mark on every street corner in this city.
He was the paraplegic powerhouse who brought reluctant City Hall bureaucrats around to a commitment to install sloped curbs. A cautious, graduated commitment, but a commitment.
It was 1970 and for wheelchair users it was huge.
"It was the one thing we really wanted to get done," said Bill STOTHERS, then a journalist who worked with OWEN on behalf of a fledgling organization known as ALPHA -- Action League for Physically Handicapped Advancement.
"We really wanted to be able to get around, but back then you would have to go down the block to find a driveway to get across the street and dodge traffic and then find another driveway."
OWEN, who died of cancer October 13 at 61, was a teacher at Ryerson who had a very logical, focused, strong but non-confrontational style.
He never took his issues to the streets. He took them to meetings, many meetings, where he would present papers and listen and negotiate a way through, around and over any objections to installing curbs featuring a slope instead of a drop to the street.
"They had never seen someone like Bill at City Hall -- alert, well prepared, highly educated and articulate and they didn't like it. Nobody wants to change. They were forced into it. Bill pushed them," said his wife Lucille OWEN.
There were many thousands of uncut curbs in the city. A pragmatic OWEN proposed to bureaucrats they install the slopes gradually, as old curbs were being replaced.
"Toronto was the first major city in North America to have a curb program like this," said Lucille. "Now they are useful for everybody, for mothers with strollers and people with those wheeled walkers."
It was the beginning of a coming of age for people in wheelchairs. Society was in the midst of dynamic change, led by the women's and black equality movements, which had thus far eluded people with physical handicaps.
Lucille thinks that was because all kinds of medical personnel from doctors to occupational therapists -- had been the traditional spokespeople for them and that consequently many with physical handicaps were uncomfortable speaking up for themselves.
STOTHERS said many people in wheelchairs didn't appreciate what he and his friend were doing either.
"People were very concerned about that at that time. They still are in a lot of places. Nobody wanted people to be rocking the boat," he said from his home in California, where he is deputy director for the Center for an Accessible Society. "We were known as the two Bills, as the troublemakers."
And they weren't about to quit while they were ahead. In October 1971, they organized another first -- a transportation conference featuring politicians from the three levels of government. At first, it looked as if it might falter -- STOTHERS says he remembers a local politician at the time remarking that maybe people in wheelchairs just shouldn't come downtown -- until an editorial in the Toronto Star endorsed the conference and its agenda of developing a system of transportation for the physically handicapped.
That weekend, they debated the merits of a para-transit system or a completely accessible subway and bus system and decided to opt for the para-transit while working long-term for a fully accessible system.
Initially to be used only for work and medical appointments, Wheel-Trans eventually expanded its services to include transportation for any purpose.
"Bill started using it for work the minute it was operational," his wife said.
He had been paying $35 for cab fare to get to work before. But there were others whose physical limitations prevented them from even using a cab. Wheel-Trans meant they could tell a prospective employer that, yes, they did have reliable transportation. It was easier for them to get work. It became easier for them simply to go out more.
"You were just free to go," said Lucille.
Newfoundland-born OWEN was 22 and working outside Fredericton, New Brunswick, at a summer construction job between his first and second years of grad school at Queen's University when an air compressor got away and rolled over him.
He'd been a keen hockey player in high school and university, president of the Arts and Literary Society, associate editor of the newspaper and co-editor of the yearbook at Mount Allison University. But he used to say the day after his injury he realized he'd become a second-class citizen, unable to enjoy any of the rights and freedom he used to have.
His family was supportive and Queen's was willing to make all kinds of modifications to accommodate him. "You get those solutions prior to the days of realizing that these were rights and that the university should be prepared to handle disabled individuals on a system-wide basis, to anticipate (that) people with disabilities will come to university," he wrote later.
In the same article, he wrote about how people expected him to be able to do wheelies in his chair to negotiate curbs. "You coped with your disability by incorporating yourself into the community without making changes to it."
He came to Toronto to complete his graduate degree and moved into one of the few apartments in the city that could accommodate wheelchairs -- for the most part. He had to remove his bathroom door and replace it with a curtain to get in.
He used to say circumstances had necessitated he become a professional disabled person with a more aggressive personality than came naturally.
But he was persistent, serving for many years on a mayor's task force on the disabled and the elderly, of which he was also the chair, as well as being on the board of the March of Dimes, and the Canadian Paraplegic Association, among other organizations. OWEN also threw himself into his academic pursuits, travelling and living at the University of Kentucky for a while to work on his doctoral dissertation on the early American writer James Fennimore Cooper, his other great passion.
He retired from teaching in 2000.
"Thanks to Bill, we're a lot better off," said Lucille. "This is not just a wife talking. He was the driving force behind the curb cuts. He transformed our lives."

'Gentlest' artist shared many gifts
Scholarship to be named in honour of Brad Johnston
Animator killed during family visit to town in B.C.
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
They were best buddies as well as brothers and no one thought anything about it when they decided to head out for a beer and a game of pool after a big Saturday night family dinner in Parksville, British Columbia, a small town 20 minutes up the coast from Nanaimo on Vancouver Island.
The JOHNSTON boys used to go there as kids on visits from their home in Pickering and dig for crabs along Qualicum Beach. A quiet corner of paradise for retirees and tourists, it's the last place one would expect a murder to occur.
But Ian and Brad JOHNSTON picked the wrong pub that night.
A few of the locals didn't like the cut of the jib of the two Torontonians in town visiting their 90-year-old grandmother and followed the pair out to the parking lot of the Rec Room Night Club at closing time. Police were called but not in time. Both brothers had been beaten, but Brad JOHNSTON was severely injured. He died two days later, January 10, at Victoria General Hospital. Five men have been charged with manslaughter and one count of assault causing bodily harm.
Brad JOHNSTON was 24, and he had never been in a fight in his life.
"He was the kindest and gentlest kid you'd ever want to meet," said his father, Stuart JOHNSTON. " It's just who he was. I don't think I ever heard him say an unkind word."
"I can't ever remember him getting into trouble with anyone," said Ian JOHNSTON, Brad's older brother by 25 months. "Everybody loved him. He was soft spoken and always living in his imagination."
JOHNSTON was an artist. He left behind a stack of sketchbooks about four feet high at his father's Toronto lakeside condo where he had been living for the past 4 1/2 years. He drew in bars, he drew in restaurants, even on road trips with his buddies. He carried his sketchbook everywhere. One of his last sketches was of his father sitting in Air Canada's Maple Leaf lounge, wine glass in hand, as the family waited for their flight out west.
"In fact, it was the only sketch he ever did of me," said Stuart JOHNSTON.
Brad JOHNSTON drew achingly beautiful life drawings, but he was also a tattoo artist: he created five of the seven mythic tattoos on his brother's left arm and designed the delicate flower around the ankle of his girlfriend Alyssa SODEN. And he was an airbrush artist whose work graced many motorcycle helmets and goalie masks.
A gifted sculptor, he had fashioned a clay horse's head for his father and stepmother Bernadette (they own a horse racing and breeding farm in Orangeville, Ontario), a cat for his mother Sherrie and a candle holder for Ian, for what would turn out to be his last Christmas.
Thoughtful, something of an aesthete, he studied and often pondered life's unknowables. "He was like a prophet and had more faith than anyone I know," his girlfriend wrote in the email telling Friends of his death.
JOHNSTON immersed himself in worlds of his own making. As one of four artists working on an animation series being produced and developed by RM Productions, an animation company based in Mississauga, he was bringing to life futuristic characters and their fantasy worlds. He helped create Defenders of the Scroll, a half-hour action-adventure animation series that comes with the tag line: In some places, you should be afraid of the shadows.
In the case of Demon Chasers, a half-hour sci-fi humour animation series he worked on, the world is Asator and it is described on the website as "a utopia in every sense" except that "as is the case with most utopias, someone had to come along and spoil it."
Right now, both series are strictly in the pitch phase.
"I hope to see the RM projects go into full production for television release," wrote friend and fellow animator Kevin STOTT in an email from Thailand. "It would be a joy to see his work on television."
The two had been classmates at Max The Mutt Animation School in downtown Toronto. School owners Maxine SCHACKER and Tina SEAMAN still remember JOHNSTON at his intake interview five years ago. Tall (6-foot-4) and at 140 pounds so slight he moved with the grace of a smaller man, a flush had spread across the smattering of freckles on his fine-featured face as his mom recalled how he used to draw over the walls at home.
He got in, but he had to work hard. He didn't pass every course the first time round, SCHACKER noted. "He was so quiet, so modest and unassuming," SEAMAN recalled. "There was a nice sensitive line to his line drawings in his final portfolio."
After JOHNSTON graduated in 2003, he supported himself with a few contract animation assignments but also modelling jobs, a couple of stints as an extra in movies and working summers on the harbour cruise ships.
"Some of us used to tell him to borrow some money and open up a tattoo shop, get a practical job," said Graham "Whitey" ADDISON, a bartender. He first met JOHNSTON in Grade 9 at Dunbarton High School in Pickering. ("I don't know why we became Friends. I was rowdy, we were so opposite.")
But JOHNSTON always replied that he would never compromise. "His dream was art," ADDISON said.
An avid video gamer, JOHNSTON was working with some others on the prototype of a new game. "He was like a wizard: he could break down any game from an artist point of view," his brother said. According to Stuart JOHNSTON, he had also been sketching characters for the new work of a British author.
But his special project was a trilogy, an illustrated novel along the lines of Lord of the Rings. He had already devised the storyline and had drawn many of the characters.
Ian JOHNSTON is a chef, but he has promised to complete his brother's trilogy.
"I will finish his story and put it out there," he said. "It shouldn't be sitting in a box when his ideas are so brilliant."
There will be a scholarship in his name at the animation school and a namesake in the red-haired colt born on his father's horse farm a few days after his death. And there is also this, part of a poem he wrote when he got up Christmas morning. "May the spirit of giving live on in you, /even if for no reason./And to those of you now come and gone; /those no longer with us./I'll see you when I get there, until then, /Merry Christmas."
