Lynn KING, Jurist: 1944-2005
A partner in the first all-female law firm in Toronto, she became a highly respected provincial court judge who brought a human touch to her family law courtroom, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Tuesday, March 22, 2005, Page S9
The law was as familiar as family for Madam Justice Lynn KING. Her father, her uncle and her aunt were all judges. And yet there was nothing traditional about her approach to the law, either as a lawyer or as a judge.
"She was completely fearless. She didn't care what anybody thought, which is a great strength in a judge," said Mr. Justice Brent KNAZAN of the Ontario Provincial Court. As an illustration, he referred to her 1991 judgment when she ruled that keeping young offenders in overcrowded and filthy holding cells without adequate access to counsel constituted cruel and unusual treatment and violated the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
"She took a personal interest in every kid who stood up in front of her," said Mr. Justice Brian WEAGANT of the Ontario Provincial Court, who had appeared before her many times as a defence counsel. She was in the vanguard of pushing for easy access to expert representation, he said. After Judge WEAGANT was appointed to the bench, he found her extremely supportive as a colleague.
"Lynn had the ability to make every person in her courtroom feel like a human being," said Madam Justice Harriet SACHS of the Ontario Provincial Court. She described how Judge KING, her former law partner and friend, created an atmosphere -- especially in youth court -- in which teenagers felt she was seeing them as people rather than as young offenders.
Judge KING, she said, was a leader both as a lawyer and as a judge, and intuitively understood what was just. "She had the intellectual capacity to reason her way, but she also had such an instinct for justice."
"She was very kind, extremely generous and very fair -- everything I try to be," said Judge KING's older son, Jonah, 22, a student at Trent University in Peterborough. "She didn't have a biased bone in her body."
Lynn KING grew up on the shores of Ramsay Lake in Sudbury, one of three children of Harry and Madelaine WAISBERG. There's a story Judge KING loved to tell about how, as a child, she showed up at school in the depths of winter without a hat or mittens. An outraged teacher called her mother demanding to know how Mrs. WAISBERG could let her daughter leave the house without winter clothing. "Wait until you get to know Lynn," her mother replied calmly.
In 1961, in her final year of high school, her parents sent her to board at Toronto's Branksome Hall, where she met her lifelong friend Wendy WRIGHT, now an assignment editor at CTV News. "We were the only two Jewish girls in residence," Ms. WRIGHT recalled yesterday. "We didn't look at all alike, but they kept getting us confused and, to this day, we still giggle about whether they could see past our religion."
Describing her friend as a very giving woman, Ms. WRIGHT said "her sense of humour was what was so thrilling and the ray of light that got me through that year. She was brilliant in high school; she had insight beyond her years and a sense of social responsibility that was clearly developed by then."
Judge KING then went to the University of Toronto, where she earned a degree in economics, followed by a master's degree from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts., and then back to the University of Toronto for a law degree. She was called to the bar in 1973, in the incremental wave of women that began receiving law degrees in Canada. A committed social activist, she began practising with Paul COPELAND and her then husband, Greg KING, in a small law office in midtown Toronto. "She was a progressive person with a heart of gold who did a nice job for her clients," said Mr. COPELAND, mentioning that Judge KING mainly did matrimonial work when she was his law partner.
After her marriage broke up, she left Copeland King and taught at Osgoode Hall for a year before joining lawyers Mary CORNISH and Harriet SACHS to form Cornish King and Sachs in 1976, the first all-female law firm in Toronto.
"I prefer to control my own work, to choose my partners and clients, to focus on women's issues," she told journalist Judy STEED in a 1980 article on women lawyers. Ms. CORNISH said: "She was very active in using the law as an instrument of social change, and she did it in a number of different ways as a lawyer and a judge, especially around gender issues in terms of family law and, ultimately, youth justice."
Judge SACHS added: "She had an enormous capacity for empathy and it never compromised her ability to see the essence of a situation."
In 1980, Lynn KING wrote What Every Woman Should Know About Marriage, Separation and Divorce, a guide written from a woman's point of view that focused on the financial, legal and business side of marriage. In 1986, she co-authored Women Against Censorship.
She met her second husband, writer M.T. (Terry) KELLY, in 1979. At the time, he was writing a relationship column for The Globe and he went to her law office to interview her about the acrimony that seems so inevitable a part of divorce. "She wouldn't go out with me for a year," he said yesterday. They met again at a party and he was "just enchanted" because she was "so beautiful and elegant and smart."
An unlikely couple in some ways -- she a legal expert and an urbanite, he a writer and an aspiring canoeist -- they meshed their different lifestyles and interests in a loving partnership that lasted for nearly 25 years. "I found her very sensitive and all the things a lawyer has to be -- and a very different kind of mind from mine."
After working as a lawyer for 13 years, she was appointed a provincial court judge at 41 by then Ontario attorney-general Ian SCOTT in David PETERSON's Liberal government. Journalist June CALLWOOD described Ms. KING "grinning with delight and nervousness" on her first day on the bench in an 1986 article for The Globe.
As a lawyer, she had successfully argued before the Ontario Supreme Court that the province's censorship law was unconstitutional. Despite that high profile, she welcomed the appointment to the bench. "A lawyer presents only one side of the case," she told Ms. CALLWOOD. " The judge can't be so cavalier. A judge is required to be sensible and responsible, but a judge is also able to be creative. I wanted to be able to make the decisions that I used to wish judges would make."
She delighted in gossip and loved to party, and she had a passion for crossword puzzles and matchmaking, frequently trying to fix people up, even those who were already committed to other partners. "Nobody minded because she was so engaging and funny," said Judge SACHS.
"She was one of these mothers who loved her kids for who they were," continued Judge SACHS. " She didn't want them to be little replicas of her, but she was always in their corner. She respected them as people and she was endlessly delighted by them."
Judge KING was diagnosed with breast cancer in November of 1999. She continued to work around treatment as the disease went into remission and then metastasized. She went on disability late in 2004 and made her last public appearance at a Boxing Day party, appearing frail but elegant in a black velvet dress. In her final days, her husband said, she watched both soap operas and the televised proceedings of the Gomery inquiry into the federal sponsorship scandal. She died at home in his arms.
Lynn KING was born on April 19, 1944, in Sudbury, Ontario She died on Friday of breast cancer at home in Toronto. She was 60. She is survived by her husband, M.T. (Terry) KELLY, her sons Jonah and Max, her mother, two siblings and their families. The funeral is today at Mount Pleasant Cemetery Chapel in Toronto.

Lynn KING: Protector of youths' rights
Justice Lynn KING became known for the human touch
As a lawyer, was an advocate for women during divorce
By Gabe GONDA, Staff Reporter, Page B5
Justice Lynn KING was a forceful and humane ally of young people caught up in the chaos of the legal system.
From her bench in the courts of 311 Jarvis Street, KING delivered sometimes tough, often compassionate justice in family matters and to a generation of young offenders, once challenging the provincial government on their behalf.
KING was appointed a judge in 1986 after a distinguished career in family law that led her to write What Every Woman Should Know About Marriage, Separation And Divorce. The book was published in 1980 and solidified its author's reputation as a leading advocate of women's rights during a time of rising divorce rates.
She died of breast cancer on Friday at the age of 60.
Born in Sudbury on April 19, 1944, to Harry WAISBERG, a lawyer and alderman, and his wife Madelaine, KING left home before her final year of high school to attend Toronto's Branksome Hall. She was one of two Jewish girls in her class.
KING studied economics at the University of Toronto and returned to her alma mater for a law degree after getting an M.A. at the Fletcher School for Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in Boston.
After graduating, KING went into practice with then-husband Greg KING and Paul COPELAND. In 1976, she formed a partnership with Harriet SACHS, later a colleague in family court.
When KING was appointed to the bench, she quickly made an impact in the area that would define her career as a judge: the rights of young people who found themselves on the wrong side of the law.
In July 1988, KING ruled that a 15-year-old Toronto boy's Charter rights had been violated because he wasn't offered a chance to write an essay or do other forms of community work to pay for his crime. KING was challenging the province to offer teens alternative sentencing options, which were being provided by other provinces under the Young Offenders Act. That ruling was overturned on appeal.
When KING wasn't occupied with high-profile constitutional cases, she was developing the human touch that made her a role model to her judicial colleagues and the lawyers who argued before her.
Justice Brian WEAGANT ran a youth legal clinic before serving beside KING as a judge. He remembers a case in the late 1980s in which a teen he was representing had been charged with assault after defending his sister during a scuffle in a store.
The teen, who'd recently moved with his family from South America, wanted to plead guilty, so WEAGANT advised him to put on his best clothes before going to court to see KING.
"He and his family went to the Salvation Army and got him a tuxedo, which he wore to court. Judge KING was just totally disarmed by this and she ended up discharging him. Sure enough, he was never in trouble again," WEAGANT said.
Justice SACHS described the young man in the tuxedo as "one of thousands" touched by KING's interventions.
On the side, KING wrote book reviews for the Toronto Star.
Her husband, novelist M.T. KELLY, said her interests remained varied to the end. During her final weeks, she entertained herself by watching the Gomery inquiry and listening to rapper Eminem, a habit that amused her sons, Jonah and Max.
"She was beautiful," KELLY said.
A service will be held today at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery Chapel at 3 p.m.

Michael GOLDSTEIN, 54, 'Wizard' of Rochdale
Draft dodger helped keep experimental university running
Later founded environmental consulting company
By Emily CHUNG, Staff Reporter
"People always think it was so hard for us draft dodgers," Michael GOLDSTEIN used to say in his broad New York accent. He thought someone should set them straight and write about what a good time it was.
Avoiding the draft for the Vietnam War, GOLDSTEIN arrived in Toronto in 1968, three days shy of his 18th birthday, and was impressed by the city's hospitality. He found housing at the newly opened Rochdale College, a free, experimental, student-directed university and co-op residence.
At Rochdale he encountered Friends and causes to keep him occupied.
One of those Friends, acclaimed science-fiction writer Judith MERRIL, who died in 1997, considered him a close friend.
She wrote about him in Better to Have Loved, the autobiography she co-authored with her granddaughter, Emily POHL- WEARY.
GOLDSTEIN died of cancer February 27, at the age of 54.
Another lifelong friend was Barb CARLSTROM, who remembered GOLDSTEIN as a "vital, happy, intense whirlwind. He knew everyone, he was interested in everything, he was everywhere."
GOLDSTEIN was born in Chicago and raised in New York City, the second of three children, along with sisters Marianne and Joanne.
His father was a Jew who converted to Quakerism during a rebellious youth.
As a teenager, GOLDSTEIN was opposed to the Vietnam War and took part in anti-war protests. Young men were required to register for the draft at 18.
GOLDSTEIN thought it would be dishonest to conscientiously object based on religion because he was opposed to the war for political reasons.
At 17, he didn't feel he could handle jail, so he decided to move to Canada.
His pacifist parents helped by driving him to Toronto. For the next few years, the family visited him at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
GOLDSTEIN became passionately involved in the beginnings of the still-thriving Theatre Passe Muraille.
(The group's historical piece, The Rochdale Project, was in workshops at Passe Muraille last week and will play again in February 2006.)
For all his idealism, GOLDSTEIN was practical and became known for fixing and building things. He became part of the crew that literally kept Rochdale running.
"You had a lot of young people who were trying to live this cool lifestyle, but they weren't taking care of business, like the electrical system and plumbing," said his older sister, Marianne ROBBINS.
So GOLDSTEIN took responsibility.
"That was the way he would approach things, as opposed to wanting to write fancy essays about this great experiment," ROBBINS said.
GOLDSTEIN's ability to figure things out and fix them became legendary, earning him the nickname "The Wizard."
Though it wasn't shut down until 1975, Rochdale's drug-propelled decline had begun by 1970.
The college, located in an 18-storey highrise at Bloor St. W. and Huron Sts., on the northern border of the University of Toronto, had a policy of not turning anyone away, including drug users and dealers.
The disintegration of Rochdale prompted GOLDSTEIN to hitchhike to Vancouver.
When he returned to Toronto after a summer, things at Rochdale had further deteriorated.
GOLDSTEIN made the difficult decision to go west for good.
In Vancouver, he worked for a draft-dodgers' newsletter and for the Company of Young Canadians, a community development organization started by Pierre Trudeau's Liberal government.
As well, he studied at the University of British Columbia and pursued a variety of other causes.
Later, GOLDSTEIN started an environmental consulting company, Soilcon.
Among other things, his ideas were used to clean up contaminated uranium mines on Hudson Bay and to grow trees on the marshy Vancouver airport grounds.
At the Company of Young Canadians, GOLDSTEIN met his future wife, Arline OISHI. They married in 1975.
The couple journeyed around the world together in 1979 and looked forward to another world tour when they retired. They never got the chance.
"Leaving New York for Toronto was easy," he used to say.
"Leaving Toronto for Vancouver was very difficult."
In addition to his wife, GOLDSTEIN leaves his daughter Devon and son Rhys. Last week the family held a service in Vancouver.

FRANKS, Gladys Evelyn (née BATCHELOR)
Gladys Evelyn FRANKS was born in Proton Township, May 19, 1914 and entered eternal rest April 14, 2005 at Dufferin Oaks. She was the fifth child of Samuel and Edith (CAMPBELL) BATCHELOR. Gladys is survived by one sister, Elva DUNN, Toronto, and two brothers Ernie (Eunice), Collingwood and Fred (Melrose) of Orangeville.
Gladys was predeceased by her husband Osborne who was killed in a construction accident, December, 1946, one sister Ila FARR and four brothers - John, Edward, Wilfred and Robert, an infant son and a grand_son Tim FRANKS. Gladys' children are Russell (Arlene) of Orangeville, Marie HODGKINSON, Toronto, Leslie (Isabell) of Dundalk, Delbert (Diane) of Orangeville, and Keith (Pat) of Dundalk. Gladys' grandchildren are: Wilda (Bob) HARDING, Jeff (Diane) FRANKS, Mark (Sonya) FRANKS, Dawn (Scott) HIGGINSON, Tammy (Paul) NIXON, Jeremy FRANKS, Rob (Jenn) FRANKS, Gaye FRANKS, Scott (Kristin) FRANKS. Great-grandchildren are: Jennifer (Rick) JOHNSTON, Chris HARDING, Carter, Jordan, Tanner, Natalie, Ryan, Tyler FRANKS and Courtney, Kristen, Ashley NIXON.
Gladys was raised at Saugeen Junction, north of Proton Station. Her parents were farmers, and then bought the brick yard at Proton Station, then returned later to farming. Their children all knew what hard work was. Gladys and her siblings attended public school at Proton Station and as a young girl worked at home and did housekeeping for neighbours.
Gladys and Osborne were married in 1935, farming in the south of Proton, then to Artemesia Township and settling on the 3rd Line of Osprey, near Hatherton. With a family of five children, times being hard in the forties, Osborne worked with Greenwood Construction as well as farming. It was while Osborne was away at work that the tragic news was received of Osborne's sudden death, December 2, 1946 in a construction accident. Gladys was left a widow and five children to raise. Being the strong and courageous person she was, she struggled on and with the help of family, community and Friends, Gladys kept farming and raising her children and teaching them skills of life. She was always so appreciative of the help she received in those difficult years. Gladys farmed until 1970, when she sold the farm and moved to her newly built home in Dundalk.
In Dundalk, Gladys enjoyed her home, family gatherings, gardening, community events, hockey and baseball, senior tours, bingo and her growing family of grandchildren. Gladys lived in her home in Dundalk until March 2004. With failing health she sold her home and in June moved to Dufferin Oaks. She enjoyed her new experience of living at Dufferin Oaks; adjusting well and going to events as her health allowed. She enjoyed the staff there, loved the visits of everyone who came by. As her health failed she was given special attention by Dufferin Oaks and Palliative care. Gladys passed away on April 14, almost reaching the grand age of 91.
Her funeral was held April 18 at the McMillan and Jack Funeral Home, Dundalk with burial following at Community of Christ Cemetery.

WEATHERALL, Delmar Nelson
In loving memory of a father and grandfather Delmar Nelson WEATHERALL who passed away October 11, 2004.
Do not stand by my grave and grieve
I am not there, I did not leave
For I'm that distant shining star
I'm all around you, never far.
I am the sparkle in children's eyes
I paint the blue in the autumn skies
And in those cool, sweet summer eves
I hide in the shadows the sunshine weaves
Yes together we laughed and cried
But now I'm ever at your side
For as long as I am in your heart
We'll never really be apart
So live your life and do be gay
And look forward to that day
When somewhere just around the bend
We will surely meet again.
Sadly missed by Loy, Marie, Melissa and Derek.

Wintry blast proves deadly
Weather cited in fatal crash
Monday, April 04, 2005
The return of winter weather is being blamed for a crash Saturday near Flesherton that resulted in the death of a woman from The Blue Mountains.
The two-vehicle collision happened just east of Flesherton on Grey County Road 4 at about 4: 45 p.m., according to a news release from the Grey County Ontario Provincial Police. A car driven by Teresa RIMMER, 43, spun out of control and into the path of an oncoming pickup truck which was towing a horse trailer.
Police said the force of the crash caused the car to roll onto its roof in the south ditch. The truck's driver and passenger, as well as paramedics and firefighters, tried to help RIMMER but she had no vital signs.
RIMMER, who hadn't been wearing a seatbelt, was taken to the Owen Sound hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 5: 25 p.m.
The driver of the truck, Wilbert WEATHERALL, 74, and passenger Dom STODDART, 49, both of Grey Highlands, weren't hurt.
The two horses in the trailer were also uninjured.
The road was closed for several hours while Ontario Provincial Police Technical Traffic Investigators investigated. Weather conditions, including wet and drifting snow, caused “treacherous driving conditions” around the time of the crash, the release said.
Conditions were no better Sunday, resulting in the closure of at least three roads in the area. Highway 10 between Flesherton and Shelburne was closed, as was Highway 89 east of Mount Forest and Grey Road 4 between Flesherton and Grey Road 124.
Highway 6 at Clavering was also closed for a time Sunday because hydro lines fell across the road.
Heavy snow, rain, ice and high winds were also responsible for power outages elsewhere in Grey-Bruce and across southern Ontario. Many Hydro One customers in the former townships of Albemarle, Artemesia, Collingwood, Glenelg, Osprey and Proton were still without electricity late Sunday evening.
Emergency crews were expected to work through the night Sunday to restore power, alongside extra crews brought in from northern areas that weren't hit by the storm.
Despite these efforts, Hydro-One said a number of the 35,000 customers affected would likely remain without power until this morning.
“The big problem with this kind of storm is that there's hundreds of outages across the province,” Hydro-One spokesman Daffyd RODERICK said Sunday. “The storm is still beating up on parts of the province, so as quickly as we're getting people back up we're losing new ones.&rdquo
Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Cam WOOLLEY said Sunday that almost 500 collisions were reported in the province. Police officers, firefighters and paramedics worked around the clock to deal with them.
“The snow is so heavy and it's molasses-like,” WOOLLEY said. “It's not like it's snow that can be wiped by a plow and the road is clear because what's laying underneath is ice.&rdquo
High winds, rain, and heavy snow made it difficult for motorists to manoeuvre on the road, he said.
What's more, some municipal contracts with plowing companies ended on March 31. They were left scrambling to clear the roads.
Even for the plows that made it out on the road, the efforts were almost futile, said WOOLLEY. That's because snow piled up behind them as they drove.
