STAFFORD fought for the little guy
By Eric BUNNELL, Special to The Free Press
Saint Thomas -- Harold STAFFORD was remembered yesterday as a passionate advocate for the little guy, a benefactor who hid behind bluster, and a politician whose strong principals may have cost him a seat at the cabinet table. STAFFORD, a colourful and often controversial former Saint Thomas lawyer, died yesterday at his home at 83.
His was a life that his friend Bill JOHNSON, a fellow lawyer and Liberal, said yesterday may be impossible to sum up.
"He was such an intrinsically unique character that there are no parallels. There was only one mould and I think they broke it when they made Harold," he said.
"He would have been 84 on April 20. But Harold was like the Mississippi. You just expected him to continue to roll on."
Tributes yesterday came from as far away as Florida, including fellow former member of Parliament Eugene WHELAN, a prominent former agriculture minister.
"He served his country in many ways. Some people disagreed with him but to those of us who knew him, he was a darn good Canadian."
A native of New Brunswick, STAFFORD was introduced to Saint Thomas and his future wife, Betty during the Second World War. He came to the city as an air force sergeant who taught Commonwealth air crew.
Educated at the University of New Brunswick and the London School of Economics, STAFFORD was called to the bar in 1953 in Brantford and opened a Saint Thomas practice in 1955.
JOHNSON was a political science student studying Liberal fortunes in Elgin when he joined a candidate search in the riding and met STAFFORD, whom he subsequently recommended to the party.
JOHNSON, who later articled under STAFFORD, said there were two sides to the man -- gruff in public, but huge-hearted in private.
"He was a guy with a heart as big as the world. No one knows the good works he did, because of his bluff, curmudgeonly behaviour," he said.
He recalled STAFFORD once defended a 12-year-old boy hauled before the court on a charge of stealing a bicycle.
"His parents were as poor as church mice and this kid didn't have much chance of having anything. Harold not only defended the young man, but he went and bought him a bike."
JOHNSON said STAFFORD "had very strong principles and he would not vary from them."
STAFFORD's dislike of Pierre TRUDEAU was no secret, yet when the former Liberal prime minister died, STAFFORD was gracious in his tribute.
Driven to defend his clients, STAFFORD's principles also may have cost him his law practice.
He was forced in 2000 to resign from the bar as a condition of the Crown withdrawing a charge of obstruction of justice, arising from an allegation STAFFORD tried to influence a witness.
The allegation was never proved and STAFFORD continued to work as a paralegal.
After two failed bids, STAFFORD was elected Elgin member of Parliament in 1965 under then prime minister Lester PEARSON.
He retired from active politics following his 1972 defeat by Tory John WISE but maintained his interest in politics.
STAFFORD's hours and his late-night phone calls were the stuff of local legend.
JOHNSON recalled one judge giving weight to a client's alibi when the man testified he was in STAFFORD's office at 1 a.m.
WHELAN also remembered STAFFORD's ability to work long hours, as did former city lawyer Marietta ROBERTS, a former member of provincial parliament and now a judge.
"Harold had a brilliant mind and he was a very bright man," WHELAN said. "He'd stay up and work until two o'clock in the morning on cases or the work he had to do for Parliament. He had the stamina of four or five people."
Said Roberts of STAFFORD: "He lived life to the fullest and he gave his time and energy to the community for a number of years."
"Mind you," she added, "it might be 3 a.m."
Visitation hours for STAFFORD at Williams Funeral Home in St. Thomas are tomorrow from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The funeral service is Friday at Knox Presbyterian Church at 1 p.m.

At Toronto, on Tuesday, January 25, 2005, at 4: 00 p.m., John, at age 91, peacefully slipped away to his eternal rest surrounded by his family and secure in his faith, both of which were so very important to him. Loving and cherished husband of Margaret (Peggy) for 64 years. Dear father of Jennifer and her husband Randy REESE, Janet CALLAGHAN and her partner Jeff BUTLER. He is remembered lovingly and proudly by his grandchildren Vanessa and her husband Boaz AXELRAD, Lindsey and her husband Jordan BLACK, Brendan CALLAGHAN, Courtenay WISE, Miranda CALLAGHAN, Darcy CALLAGHAN and his fiancée Taissa PRYCHODKO, and by his great-grandchildren Neeve and Kai AXELRAD and Zoe BLACK. John led a full and remarkable life that began in Newcastle upon Tyne on November 23, 1913. He joined the British Army as a very young man and rose to the rank of Major on a journey that took him to India with the Royal Horse Artillery, Singapore and Europe as well as North Africa, Iraq, Egypt and Italy during World War 2. One of John's joys later in life was the time he spent as a retiree working as a court clerk for the family court of Ontario. John learned a lot about the fine work and difficult decisions that must be wrestled with on a daily basis by the lawyers and judges in their efforts to protect a fair and just society. John never stopped learning and was always deeply interested in public affairs and international politics. Though he spent many years as a soldier, he was deeply saddened by the expansion of violence and wars throughout the world, especially the involvement of foreign troops that escalate these circumstances and expose the soldiers to unnecessary danger. A mass will be held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 78 Clifton Road (at St. Clair Avenue East), on Saturday, January 29th, at 1: 30 p.m.

Harold STAFFORD, Lawyer 1921-2005
Lawyer who rode the Trudeaumania wave to hold onto a seat in Parliament later faced charges of fraud, theft and breach of trust
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, February 25, 2005 - Page S7
As a criminal defence lawyer, Harold STAFFORD anticipated spending much of his life in court. He could not have imagined in law school that he would be doing so as a defendant.
Mr. STAFFORD, who has died at age 83, was a prominent lawyer in Saint Thomas, Ontario, representing clients charged as petty thieves, failed killers and fraud artists.
His experiences with such a wide spectrum of citizenry perhaps prepared him for a career in politics, during which he served seven years as a Liberal member of Parliament.
In the years following his defeat at the polls, Mr. STAFFORD found himself dealing with a succession of personal legal troubles in cases serious, bizarre, and whimsical. Most seriously, he faced fraud charges in court for 4½ years before the matter was stayed.
In 1984, Mr. STAFFORD and another businessman were charged with fraud, theft and criminal breach of trust in the handling of more than $60,000 from the accounts of a cemetery in Woodstock, Ontario
As most of the money had been repaid by the time charges were brought, lawyers for Mr. STAFFORD and his co-accused sought to have the case dismissed for violating the fundamental justice provisions of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. According to press reports, their application was rejected by a district court judge. That decision was upheld by the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada.
A stay of proceedings was at last ordered in June, 1988, after a Crown attorney told a district court judge that exhibits were missing. Earlier, court was told that the charges caused Mr. STAFFORD to lose clients, suffer depression, and endure the indignity of losing an election to become a delegate to the 1984 Liberal leadership convention.
The end of the matter did not complete his legal woes. In 1999, he signed an agreement to retire and not practice law as part of an undertaking in which a charge of obstruction of justice against him was dropped. Mr. STAFFORD had allegedly attempted to influence the testimony of a witness in a case in which he was acting as a defence lawyer. He continued to work as a paralegal, causing a ruckus when he appeared in a Chatham courtroom with a client the following year. Despite concerns raised by the Crown, he succeeded in getting charges of drinking and driving dropped.
A headline in the Chatham Daily News read: STAFFORD Shows Up And Gets Client Off.
In 1980, Mr. STAFFORD was acquitted of income-tax evasion in provincial court. The charge related to his Erie Properties Ltd., which failed to file a 1979 return. In 1978, a fraud and conspiracy case involving Brazilian gold, Dutch diamonds and Venezuelan fighter planes ended in a mistrial after Mr. STAFFORD alleged jury tampering. He also said an attempt had been made on his life, according to a copyright story in the Woodstock Sentinel-Review.
Mr. STAFFORD made the allegations after being fired as a defence lawyer by one of the accused men. Earlier in the trial, he had been accused of blackmail by a lawyer representing another of the defendants.
In contrast to those dramatic years in court, his political career was serene.
Mr. STAFFORD, a Liberal, needed to contest three elections in the riding of Elgin in Southwestern Ontario before wresting the seat from the Progressive Conservatives. He lost to Tory incumbent James McBAIN, a farmer, by just 78 votes of 27,618 cast in 1962. Mr. McBAIN was re-elected the following year, but in 1965 Mr. STAFFORD ended 20 years of Tory rule, winning by 1,047 votes.
Re-elected during the Trudeaumania campaign of 1968, Mr. STAFFORD lost the seat to dairy farmer John WISE four years later. Mr. WISE would serve as agriculture minister under prime ministers Joe CLARK and Brian MULRONEY.
Born in New Brunswick, Harold Edwin STAFFORD was a sergeant in the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War. He was stationed at Saint Thomas, where he taught Commonwealth pilots.
He graduated with a bachelor of science degree before earning a civil law degree in 1951 at the University of New Brunswick. A Lord Beaverbrook scholarship allowed him to study at the London School of Economics.
He began practising law in Ontario in 1953, being named Queen's Counsel in 1969.
At least one of his scrapes with the law had a humorous twist. He was on his way to court to represent three men charged with attempted murder in 1991 when he crashed his Cadillac into a pole. When he told police about the accident at the Woodstock courthouse, he was arrested and taken to the police station for a breathalyzer test. He was released without charge. However, his admission to having suffered a minor stroke three years earlier led police to deliver Mr. STAFFORD to hospital to have his blood pressure tested. A three-hour hospital wait after the day's events likely did not improve the reading.
Harold STAFFORD was born in Birdton, New Brunswick, near Fredericton, on April 20, 1921. He died on January 18 at Saint Thomas, Ontario He was 83.
