Former Owen Sound mayor dies
Bob RUTHERFORD served the city for nearly 30 years
By Jonathon JACKSON, Saturday, March 05, 2005
Bob RUTHERFORD, whose career in municipal politics spanned nearly 30 years and included 16 years as Owen Sound's mayor, has died. He was 76.
Mayor Ruth LOVELL announced his death Friday during council's budget deliberations.
Mr. RUTHERFORD had been in Owen Sound hospital for a few weeks before he died there. The nature of his illness was not announced.
“I will certainly remember him as a very effective and personable mayor,” LOVELL said Friday. “He will be a person who is very missed.&rdquo
“He just loved this community,” said Coun. Arlene WRIGHT, who worked with Mr. RUTHERFORD at Rutherford Signs for 20 years.
“A true politician, dedicated,” summed up Gail NORRIS, who has worked for six Owen Sound mayors. “When he talked, people listened to him.&rdquo
Mr. RUTHERFORD was first elected to city council in 1962 and became mayor in 1965. He served in that position until being defeated in 1974 by Warren LOUGHEED. Mr. RUTHERFORD returned to office in 1976, ousting LOUGHEED in the next election.
He was mayor until 1982, when he was defeated largely due to his support for what was then a controversial plan to replace the city's downtown arena with what is now called the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre.
After the arena was condemned due to a structural problem, Mr. RUTHERFORD engineered a deal with A and P to build a new grocery store on the site of the old arena. He then helped push through an application which helped the new community centre qualify for an expiring grant program with only one day to spare.
But in a time of soaring interest rates and a poor economy, fears of higher taxes because of the Bayshore's cost resulted in Mr. RUTHERFORD's defeat and the election of Ovid JACKSON as mayor.
“The most wonderful thing that I ever got for the city... was the thing that killed me,” Mr. RUTHERFORD said on election night in 1982.
“I have no regrets. I would not have changed anything along the way.&rdquo
NORRIS, who still works in the mayor's office, recalls clearly a conversation she and Mr. RUTHERFORD had which she thinks says a lot about him.
“ ‘Gail, I'm going to vote that we build the Bayshore because the grants are available now and we need a new arena.' But he said, ‘I can tell you, I'll probably lose the election, ' ” she said. “What always amazed me was the day they opened the building and Bob was a guest, they gave him a standing ovation. You know, he had the vision.&rdquo
In 1985, as he had done in 1976, he challenged the man who had defeated him. JACKSON won re-election and Mr. RUTHERFORD vowed he was done with politics.
“I'm finished,” he said at the time. “I'll never run as a candidate again.&rdquo
It was a promise he didn't keep. He ran for a spot on city council in 1988, finished fifth in a field of 11 and served Owen Sound for three more years.
WRIGHT, who at one time was also Mr. RUTHERFORD's neighbour, said she always appreciated how he was a blue-collar worker who slipped comfortably into the mayor's chair.
“He was just an all-round guy and very well liked.&rdquo
He was president of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario in his final term on council, she noted, and he always kept abreast of goings-on at city hall. In fact, he dropped into city hall a year ago during budget deliberations.
NORRIS visited Mr. RUTHERFORD last Sunday, shortly after she'd heard he was in the hospital.
“We had a nice visit but I knew that he was extremely ill... But he still had the twinkle in his eye and the smiles.&rdquo
The arrival of some of Owen Sound's industrial plants also coincided with Mr. RUTHERFORD's terms of office, NORRIS added.
The family released a list of 18 clubs and boards to which Mr. RUTHERFORD belonged, ranging from the board of governors at Georgian College to the North Star Masonic Lodge to the Owen Sound Jaycees. His family declined to comment on Mr. RUTHERFORD's passing in a note sent from Breckenridge-Ashcroft Funeral Home.
In an interview on the eve of the 2000 municipal election, Mr. RUTHERFORD reflected on his political life.
“I had love for the city and I wanted to get involved,” said Mr. RUTHERFORD, who owned a downtown sign business for many years. “I was fortunate enough to be able to have the time, as my father and my stepbrother both said they'd run the shop while I worked at running the city.
“It's something you really have to love and enjoy, because you do take a lot of criticism. You're close to the people. They can pick up the phone and phone you and tell you what they think.&rdquo
He tried unsuccessfully to unseat both Progressive Conservative member of Parliament Gus MITGES and Liberal member of provincial parliament Eddie SARGENT. SARGENT had preceded him as mayor.
“I ran against Eddie a couple of times, but that's what you call ass-burning learning,” he said with a laugh.
Robert Edward RUTHERFORD is survived by his wife, Shirley J. RUTHERFORD (née EBY,) was father of Ross WARD and his wife Penny, Brent RUTHERFORD, Catherine and her husband Bob WEBBER and Rahnda YULE. He leaves eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, his brother Tim RUTHERFORD and his wife Violet. Predeceased by his brothers Paul, Jerry and Peter.
A private family service has been held. Friends are invited to a come-and-go reception in the Bay Room of the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 13. Donations to the Grey Bruce Regional Health Centre Foundation M.R.I. fund or to the Shriner's Hospital were what Mr. RUTHERFORD wished.

Don SCOTT, Athlete and Chief Executive Officer (1927-2005)
Argonaut player who competed in the famous 'mud bowl' Grey Cup of 1950 went on to head the country's largest accounting firm
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, December 5, 2005 Page, S11
Toronto -- Don SCOTT's athleticism led him to one of the most famous football games in Canadian history, his brains took him atop the leading accounting firm in Canada and his influence made him instrumental when Ontario moved to no-fault automobile insurance in the early 1990s.
He grew up in Windsor, Ontario in the Depression years, when times were tough for him, his father, a Ford Motor Co. employee, and his bookkeeper mother. He attended Patterson Collegiate Institute where he excelled at football, basketball, and track and field. He was the head boy at the school, a two-time member of the all-city, senior basketball team, and he won the Arthur Currie Memorial Scholarship to attend the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, where he played both football and basketball. In 1949, he graduated with a business degree, began studying for his chartered-accounting exam and found himself playing pro that same year for the Toronto Argonauts. He was an offensive end, packing no more than 160 pounds on a 6-foot-1 frame.
"He was very skinny, the lightest man on the field," his daughter Barb said.
"He was a tall, rangy kid, who worked hard and was very modest. He was well-liked as a teammate, said former teammate Nick VOLPE.
"He wasn't really a star but he was a good outside end, a good catch," said ex-teammate Don DURNO. "He wasn't a hefty man. He was probably more of a basketball player with his size."
Buddy FOWLER, another old Argo mate, recalled Mr. SCOTT as a "wonderful guy and great athlete with a great attitude on life."
Mr. SCOTT played three seasons for the Argos, the second of which was his most memorable because they went all the way to the Grey Cup. Mr. SCOTT, Rod SMYLIE, Marv WHALEY and Jack WEBLEY made up Toronto's potent wide-receiver corps as the Argos rolled along that year. As each November week passed, Mr. SCOTT and his fiancée, Eileen, had to keep postponing their wedding. They had picked November 4 as the date but a winning streak put the nuptials on the backburner.
How good was this Toronto team? At the time, Globe and Mail football writer Hal WALKER described the club as "the greatest Argonaut team of all time." Later that year, sports writers picked them as the top football team of the first half century in Canada.
The Frank Clair-coached Argos started off post-season play by disposing of the Hamilton Tiger Cats 35-19 in the two-game, total-points division championship. The Grey Cup game on November 25 at Toronto's Varsity Stadium became known as the "mud bowl." It was a classic game, but not in the offensive sense. At least a foot of snow had hit Toronto the day before, then melted, and the game became a defensive struggle marred by a muddy morass. Mr. VOLPE kicked two field goals to help Toronto beat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers "The field was a sea of water," Mr. VOLPE said. "Bulldozers tried to clear away the water but [they] made it a muddy mess instead. We were literally playing in mud. Bud Tinsley of the Blue Bombers almost drowned. He was face down in the mud and water and he was gasping for breath. He was saved by a referee."
With the big game over, Mr. SCOTT and Eileen finally made firm plans for their wedding. They were married in London on December Mr. SCOTT played one more season for the Argos in 1951 and then decided to retire because his playing time had diminished. "1951 was the year they started bringing in a lot of Americans and didn't use the Canadians as much," his wife said. "After the mud bowl, Don didn't play much."
By that time, Mr. SCOTT had already found a job with Clarkson Gordon. Now part of Ernst Young, it was then Canada's largest accounting firm. He rose to become chairman and chief executive officer, posts he held for eight years.
"Don had a tremendous intellect," said Jim BUNTON, a former associate at Clarkson Gordon. "He kind of glowed. He had a lot of charisma and was very good with staff and people."
Fending off retirement, Mr. SCOTT listened to a number of offers from various groups and companies, finally heeding the call of the provincial government to become head of the Ontario Insurance Commission just when no-fault automobile insurance was coming into play. But in going from the private sector to the tangled red tape of government Mr. SCOTT experienced endless frustrations.
"It was a very trying time," his daughter said. "It was a completely different scenario. In the private sector, he could get something done quickly but, in the public sector, it's not easy. It's a different mindset."
For all that, he left a distinct impression at the Ontario Insurance Commission, said Bernie WEBBER, a former deputy-commissioner under Mr. SCOTT. "He was skilled in athleticism, he was the head of one of Canada's largest accounting firms and he became a top civil servant. We shared a love of language and a mutual disdain for sloppy USAge, particularly by media reporters and announcers whose stock-in-trade is language and who should, by definition, be more precise. You always knew where you stood with him."
Don SCOTT was born July 30, 1927, in Windsor, Ontario He died of cancer on November 3, 2005, in Toronto. He is survived by his wife Eileen and children Christy, Lauren, Barb and Rob.

Bob HUNTER, Evironmentalist And Writer: 1941-2005
In 1971, he was assigned to cover a story about a nuclear protest. Instead, he joined the group and co-founded Greenpeace
By Terry WEBER, With files from Canadian Press; staff; Globe and Mail archives, Tuesday, May 3, 2005, Page S9
He was a journalist, television personality, writer and political candidate but most of all he was a co-founder of Greenpeace, recognized by Time magazine as one of the 20th century's 10 top eco-heroes.
In 1971, while on assignment for the Vancouver Sun, he was invited to join a group taking a charter vessel to Alaska to protest nuclear testing that the U.S. began on Amchitka Island in the Aleutians in 1965. It had all started when Mr. HUNTER had attended a Sunday night meeting in a church basement, where he and a group of likeminded Friends decided, there and then, to save the environment and set up what he later laughingly called an organization. As he left the podium, having been elected president, he yelled out "Peace!" -- the mantra of the time -- and someone in the audience responded with the word green. "Let's make it a green peace," he yelled.
They scrounged up some money, bought an old broken-down fishing boat, renamed it the Rainbow Warrior and set off to the Aleutian Islands off Alaska to harass the mighty American military. They didn't get there in time, the boat being a very slow boat to anywhere, but the suspense devoured the front pages in British Columbia and eventually the whole country. Having been a reporter since he was 18, the venture was partly inspired by a quixotic desire to file a story datelined "Ground Zero."
"I thought I was going to be a reporter, taking notes," he once remarked. "In reality, I wound up on first watch."
He stayed for the 45-day duration of the voyage and subsequently helped shape the beginning of the Greenpeace Foundation in 1972. With the launch of the pro-environment activist group, he helped bring public attention not only to nuclear testing but to the excesses of whaling and seal hunting, as well as the dumping of toxic waste into the oceans.
His forays into the face of danger were the stuff of high adventure. The photographic record of Greenpeace encounters with Soviet or French ships on the open ocean are often fuzzy and taken at a distance. Apparently, one famous photo of a Russian harpoon parting the hair of a protester as he bobbed through the ocean swell in a flimsy inflatable boat showed the Greenpeace leader himself. "That's HUNTER," Gord PERKS of the Toronto Environmental Alliance told The Globe and Mail last year. Anywhere else, and Mr. HUNTER "would be revered as a national hero," he added.
Personal heroics, however, were not something Bob HUNTER chose to exploit. Only the mission was important. In a Globe and Mail report of the 1977 harpoon incident, he described the scene by telephone but had failed to put himself in it.
The encounter was vintage Greenpeace. Protesters aboard the James Bay, a former Canadian minesweeper, had succeeded in protecting sperm Wales for almost four hours by piloting their dinghies between the Wales and the harpooners. Finally, the Soviet boats had massed together and let loose their harpoons. At least one of the projectiles had passed low over the heads of protesters, whose dinghy was keeping pace with a whale only metres away.
Saving Wales lay at the heart of Mr. HUNTER's early work as an environmentalist. He was once moved to relate an incident that, to him, spoke volumes about the creatures. In July of 1975, lack of funds and an underpowered vessel had caused Greenpeace to abandon a campaign to disrupt whaling off the California coast. It turned out that their old fishing boat, the Phyllis Cormack, owned a top speed of nine knots, while the Russians they pursued were capable of 20 knots.
Even so, the protesters had somehow enjoyed great success -- but only because the Wales had come looking for Greenpeace. Inexplicably, something had caused the animals to turn and seek out the slower vessel.
"The Wales came right at our boat, and the chaser boat we were following had to change course," Mr. HUNTER later told reporters.
Eventually, Mr. HUNTER left to join the Sea Shepherd Society, which was seen as a sort of splinter group, but by then he had charted a definable course for Greenpeace. After all, it was he who adopted the term Rainbow Warriors to portray Greenpeace activists, as well as the phrase Media Mind Bomb to describe the activist impact on the public consciousness.
"I was the right person in the right place," the shaggy-haired, grey-bearded Mr. HUNTER once said of his pivotal role in Greenpeace. "But when it's done, I think you can get into a habit of just clinging to it because you don't know what to do next, whereas I knew all along, I wanted to get back to what I was doing already."
In truth, his contribution was far greater than that. Mr. HUNTER possessed a genius for communication. The language of dramatic imagery and gesture that Greenpeace pioneered grew directly from his analysis of the late communications guru Marshall McLuhan. "Tell me how many people you know who ever had an idea that good and made it happen." Bob HUNTER took the theory, applied it to environmentalism and and so changed the world.
"Bob was an inspirational storyteller, an audacious fighter and an unpretentious mystic," said John DOHERTY, chairman of Greenpeace Canada. "He was serious about saving the world, while always maintaining a sense of humour."
Being an environmentalist, he told an audience at the University of Toronto's Innis College in November, means always having to explain to your children why you're so angry. "We're doomed!" he shouted with gusto, his ponytail flying. "It's obvious that the world is going to hell in a hand basket, as usual."
For all his zeal as a self-described "apocalypticist," he was also capable of self-satire. "Save the three-legged purple salamander from southern Saskatoon!" he gleefully urged his audience, which included such luminaries as David Suzuki and Monte Hummel, president of World Wildlife Fund Canada. "I'm all for it.
"My God, the planet is being destroyed while I lie here on my waterbed; I must do something!"
Today, the organization has more than 2.5 million members with a presence in 40 countries. He left Greenpeace in 1981 and turned to writing and broadcasting to transmit his 'green' message. In 1991, he won the Governor-General's Award for literature for his book Occupied Canada: A Young White Man Discovers His Unsuspected Past. He was the author of more than a dozen books. Earlier, he had also written for the television shows The Beachcombers and Danger Bay.
In his most recent public role, he was the ecology news specialist for CHUM's CITY-TV and CP24 television channels. He was perhaps best known to Toronto viewers for Paper Cuts, a segment on the station's popular Breakfast Television show, in which he wore a bathrobe and commented on stories in the day's newspapers. Viewers also knew him as CITY-TV's environmental reporter and as host of Hunter's Gathers.
In 2001, he ran unsuccessfully for the Liberal Party for a by-election seat in the Ontario legislature and accused the New Democratic Party of employing slanderous techniques against him in the campaign.
In 1999, Mr. HUNTER had been diagnosed with cancer but refused to have surgery. He began years of treatment at a Mexican cancer clinic that specialized in non-conventional medical treatments.
In November, he told the University of Toronto audience that he was happy, despite his eco-gloom and his own ill health. Things were changing because people made a difference, he said. There was still hope for the three-legged salamander. "The only thing incurable about me," he confessed, "is my optimism."
Robert HUNTER was born in St. Boniface, Manitoba, on October 13, 1941, which happened to be Thanksgiving Day. He died of prostate cancer in Toronto on May 2. He was 63. He leaves his wife, Bobbie, and his children Will, Emily, Conan and Justine.

RADFORD, Joanne
Passed away at home on December 15th, 2005. Born on May 29, 1946 in Winnipeg, Joanne also made Montreal her home before moving to Toronto in 1972. While in Montreal, Joanne met her life partner and husband, Walter NOE, who deeply mourns the passing of his "Jo-Jo". A vibrant and unique personality, Joanne attacked life with equal parts flamboyance and keen intelligence. She was well suited in her work, first in theatre, then as political activist and later as Executive Director. Many on the "other side of the table" found her to be a formidable adversary. In addition to managing Federal and Provincial election campaigns from Nova Scotia to British Columbia, Joanne was instrumental in founding two professional associations. She was intensely interested in and supportive of her family and many, many Friends. Even the challenge of failing health over the past ten years, which she coped with gallantly, couldn't extinguish her ability to meaningfully engage in the lives of others. Joanne is predeceased by her parents, Norman and Joan RADFORD and her brother, Gerald. She will be greatly missed by her step-mother T. Joan RADFORD, her Uncles Leonard RADFORD (Shirley) and Trevor WEBER, her cousins Carole CLARK, Moira EVANS (George), Ken WEBER (Mary), Douglas RADFORD (Bev) Allison LOGAN (Art,) her sisters-in-law Esther NOE and Linda MARSCHALL, her Nephew Zack RADFORD, and by Dr. Janusz DUKSZTA. Cremation has taken place, and at Joanne's request, there will be no funeral service. Instead, a celebration of Joanne's life will be held in January. Donations can be made in her name to Amnesty International.
