William FARLINGER, Accountant and Chief Executive Officer: (1929-2005)
'Slow-moving guy with a razor-sharp mind' went from success as head of Ernst and Young to disappointment as chair of Ontario Hydro, writes Sandra MARTIN. His stumble came with a failed attempt at privatization
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, December 3, 2005, Page S11
A chartered accountant who headed up Clarkson Gordon (now Ernst & Young,) William "Bill" FARLINGER retired in 1993 after a stellar career in business. Dynamic and energetic, he combined his business acumen, his private-sector connections and his political philosophy in the campaign to elect Mike Harris premier of Ontario in 1995.
"For many, Bill FARLINGER will be remembered as a decisive and intelligent leader. For me, he was also a kind and gentle friend," the former premier said this week.
Mr. HARRIS named Mr. FARLINGER chair of Ontario Hydro in 1995, with the mandate to privatize the public utility that had been one of the economic engines of the province's prosperity. The initiative went horribly wrong, with Mr. FARLINGER castigated in the press for lavish spending. He remained chair of the board and its successor, Ontario Power Generation, until 2003 when the Harris government was defeated by Dalton McGuinty's Liberals.
The unresolved question is why Mr. FARLINGER took on such an onerous and risky challenge, when he could have been golfing, fishing or relaxing with his grandchildren and his second wife, Esther. He knew the workings of the company, or must have thought he did, because Clarkson Gordon had been Ontario Hydro's accountants for decades. And yet in August of 1997, two years after he became chair of the board, he released a scathing internal report on mismanagement at the public utility and announced that seven of its 19 atomic reactors had to be shut down. "The nuclear unit was operated over all those early years as some sort of special nuclear cult," he said at a press conference.
"My father had a dream of privatizing electricity," said his daughter Pamela EARLE. "He didn't believe any government could ever run it very well and he believed electricity would be cheaper and the environment would be [cleaner] if it were privatized, and that is what he tried to do."
In retrospect, says former premier Ernie EVES, privatizing Ontario Hydro was doomed because "we didn't have enough competition out there to privatize it." In his opinion, you need a fairly level playing field with some decent competitors. "It is not going to work if you have an overwhelming player who controls 85 or 90 per cent of the power generation, and the other players are all scrambling around fighting over the other 10 to 15 per cent," he says. "It may come to pass but, in hindsight, I just don't think we were ready to make it work."
Mr. FARLINGER's old friend and mentor, accountant and public-policy writer Jack BIDDELL has a harsher explanation. "Here is a man whose father was very wealthy, who left Bill with a lot of money. Bill had a tremendous income as Chief Executive Officer of Clarkson Gordon, but he was obsessed with seeing how much money he could make. He was a great family man and I loved him, but that was his main concern. He never did anything unethical, but the urge to make money and to demonstrate how smart he was, was there. I never understood it." The two men broke over Ontario Hydro and Mr. BIDDELL's greatest regret is that they never had time to repair the rift in their nearly 50-year Friendship.
William Bill Alexander FARLINGER was born just after the stock market crash that heralded the Depression, the eldest of two children of real estate salesman Alexander FARLINGER and his wife Allie (PURVES.) Although times were tough when Bill was a child, his father became a successful real-estate developer in the 1950s and 1960s, building Bayview Village and some of the first townhouses at the corner of York Mills and Bayview in Toronto.
Mr. FARLINGER met his first wife, Shirley (TABB) FARLINGER, in Grade 8 in the local elementary school they both attended in North Toronto. They started going steady when they were 12, a romance that lasted all through high school at Lawrence Park Collegiate Institute and the University of Toronto. Tall, lithe and graceful, Mr. FARLINGER was a hurdler and a pole vaulter, and was elected to the sports hall of fame at the University of Toronto in 1991 and awarded an honorary degree the following year.
The FARLINGERs married in 1951, right after graduation, when both were 21.
With a degree in commerce and finance, Mr. FARLINGER joined Clarkson Gordon the same year. "He showed his mettle early on," said Ken LEMON, a former executive, who had joined the firm in 1936. "He had a strong personality and he was very smart."
He worked in the auditing business while he qualified as a chartered accountant and then moved into the insolvency and bankruptcy business, working mainly under Jack BIDDELL. "I recognized his talents and I had a little bit to do with moving him around the country to our various offices [in Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto]," said Mr. BIDDELL. "He was very bright, a good accountant, very articulate, very pleasant and dealt with people well."
One of the big cases Mr. FARLINGER worked on was the liquidation of Investors Overseas Services, then the biggest pension fund in the world. Investors Overseas Services had its headquarters in Geneva, but it had been incorporated in New Brunswick. That was why Clarkson Gordon was involved in securing and resolving a pension fund that involved governments in several countries.
Mr. LEMON was instrumental in bringing Mr. FARLINGER onto the executive committee of Clarkson Gorden. The firm had had a long association with the American firm Arthur Young, representing them in Canada and being represented by them around the world. After A.C. Ernst and Arthur Young merged in the U.S. in 1989, there was a question about who their Canadian affiliate would be.
By then senior partner and Chief Executive Officer of the firm, Mr. FARLINGER made certain it was Clarkson Gordon. The cost was changing the firm's name to Ernst and Young. "From our standpoint, it was a very important step in the history of the firm," said Mr. LEMON. "We would have lost our international connection and our ability to work around the world."
Mr. BIDDELL, who had not welcomed the change, eventually saw that it was a good and necessary move. "When he told me the details, I reached over and shook his hand."
Mr. FARLINGER and his wife Shirley had five children; Brian, who died of H.I.V./A.I.D.S. in 1995, Pamela, Craig, Leonard and David. A keen outdoorsman, Mr. FARLINGER loved fishing, golfing and skiing. He taught his kids to ski and insisted they all learn French when he was transferred to Montreal in 1967. The family spent winter holidays on ski slopes around the world and summers portaging and camping at a rustic fishing camp in Caughnawana, Quebec, due east of North Bay, Ontario, that he had bought in 1975 with Mr. LEMON.
Mr. FARLINGER had a rare combination of strength and gentleness that made him very attractive to be around, said his daughter. "He really listened and was sympathetic to many points of view and I think that is what made him so dynamic in the boardroom and in our family." Sunday dinners were lively and opinionated, she said.
After 36 years of marriage, the FARLINGERs separated in 1987 because they had "evolved" in different ways, according to his first wife, who has since remarried. She supported the Green Party and the New Democratic Party and he was an arch Conservative.
"My mother had been a housewife for 25 years, raising the kids. She had been a very loving mother, but as she saw dad's career develop she wanted to make her mark, too, and Dad really wanted a wife who would be by his side and do charities and galas."
He married his second wife, Esther, a golfer, fundraiser and interior designer, in 1988.
After he retired from Ernst and Young, Mr. FARLINGER formed his own management consulting firm, "but he was itching to do something bigger," said his nephew Bill KING, a former journalist for the North Bay Nugget, who was working in Mike HARRIS's constituency office in the late 1980s. That something bigger turned out to be electing Mr. HARRIS as leader of the party and then premier of the province. Mr. FARLINGER raised money, gave Mr. HARRIS legitimacy with his business connections on Bay Street, and helped strategize the Common Sense Revolution.
"He really impressed me," said Mr. EVES, another key player in Mr. HARRIS's leadership bid. "He was a slow-moving guy with a razor-sharp mind. He could take any problem you had and make it into a succinct matter instead of going on and on about a pile of irrelevant stuff."
Mr. EVES also knew Mr. FARLINGER on the golf course, a place where you can learn a lot about a man's character. "There are a lot of people who will cheat here and there or move the ball, but not Bill. He always played strictly by the rules. He was a very honest and decent guy."
William Alexander FARLINGER was born in Toronto on November 21, 1929. He died on November 28, 2005, after suffering a massive stroke 10 days earlier. He was 76. He is survived by his wife Esther, four children, one stepson and 14 grandchildren.
