Father killed in 401 crash
By Sarah FRALEY, Free Press Reporter and Canadian Press
Napanee -- A London family's summer vacation ended tragically yesterday when the sailboat they were towing landed on their car after a crash on Highway 401.
Police say the driver, Gregory BRINE, 41, died in the midday crash that closed a busy stretch of the 401 east of Napanee for hours.
The man's wife and three children -- boys aged four and eight, and a girl, 10 -- were treated for minor injuries and released from hospital in Napanee, west of Ottawa.
"We're speculating the boat was too large for the car pulling it and that might have been a factor," Napanee Ontario Provincial Police Const. Sheri WANAMAKER said last night.
She said BRINE's wife told her "we've just finished a vacation."
witnesses: say BRINE lost control of his westbound station wagon after the trailer carrying the seven-metre sailboat started to fishtail.
The car hit the gravel shoulder, rolled across the highway and struck a concrete median, with the boat landing on top of the upside-down vehicle.
A trucker who saw the crash stopped and pulled out the three children through the car's back window, said WANAMAKER.
The mother, 42, freed herself from the car, police said.
Firefighters extracted BRINE from the vehicle, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The 401's west lanes near the crash were closed for several hours while police waited for a crane from Kingston to remove the boat.
The BRINE family lives at 566 Ambleside Dr. in the city's northwest.
Neighbours last night seemed to know little about the crash.

Richard LEITERMAN, Cinematographer: (1935-2005)
In 1969, the pioneer of cinéma vérité was among the first to use a technique that today's television viewers know as reality television
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail; Globe and Mail archives, Tuesday, September 27, 2005, Page S11
The cinematographer Richard LEITERMAN -- best known for his work in such films as Goin' Down the Road and A Married Couple -- was told by a teacher early in his career that he might have been born holding a camera.
Mr. LEITERMAN first picked up a camera because his then brother-in-law, filmmaker Allan KING, was making documentaries. Working in film seemed a lot more fun to Mr. LEITERMAN than the assortment of odd jobs -- from a forklift operator to a dish washer -- he had done for money since dropping out of university. He asked Mr. KING if he could get a job hauling gear around, but was told to learn how to use a camera instead. Later on, he referred to Mr. KING as his mentor and as someone who "took me in when I was very, very green."
As a pioneer in cinéma vérité filmmaking, Mr. LEITERMAN's work with Mr. KING created some landmark, low-budget documentaries, including A Married Couple (1969), a raw and at times disturbing look inside the strained marriage of an ordinary Toronto couple.
"He had a great relationship not only with people but with machines," said filmmaker Don SHEBIB, whose first feature film was Goin' Down the Road, a 1970 low-budget movie about Maritimers down and out in Toronto which has become a Canadian classic. "The machine was so close to him. I don't have the same relationship with the camera as he did. He played it like a violin and always did."
By the end of his career, his work had become a barometer against which the development of Canadian film Could be measured. In their 1978 book, Richard Leiterman, Alison Reid and P.M. Evanchuk wrote that his career "has been so closely involved with the mainstream of Canadian filmmaking that his work is practically illustrative of its trends, its tendency towards fiction film with a solid base in the documentary tradition."
Born near a small mining community near Timmins, Ontario, Mr. LEITERMAN was the youngest of six children. Raised in a strict Christian household, his father Douglas worked as a bookkeeper at the local mine. As a young boy, the family moved to Vancouver.
Initially, Mr. LEITERMAN studied engineering at the University of British Columbia. The move was in response to his talented and artistic older siblings, who all went into the arts and intimidated him. He soon learned that engineering wasn't for him and dropped out. He headed to Europe where he worked in restaurant kitchens, drove trucks in Germany, sailed charter yachts on the Mediterranean and served coffee in trendy cafes. It was at one such coffee shop in London where he met his future wife, Margaret. They married in 1960 after returning to Vancouver.
At the suggestion of Mr. KING, Mr. LEITERMAN enrolled in a summer course in camera technique at the University of British Columbia when he was in his early twenties. He jokingly referred to the course as "Be Your Own Film Director in Six Easy Weekends." His instructor, Stanley Fox, would later remark that Mr. LEITERMAN, while still a beginner, "held the camera as though it had been in his hands his whole life."
After taking the summer course, Mr. LEITERMAN bought a Bell and Howell 16 mm camera, shot some footage of a storm and sold it to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation News in Vancouver for $35. Now a professional, he and his wife returned to London and he worked as a news stringer for various networks. Soon after he went into partnership with Mr. KING, helping form Allan King Associates, in 1962.
The documentaries Mr. LEITERMAN and Mr. KING made together took them from the Arctic Circle to the civil rights marches in Mississippi and Alabama and through war-ravaged Vietnam. In the late 1960s, he followed anthropologist Margaret Mead through New Guinea and American writer Norman Mailer at a protest march on the Pentagon.
"Richard is not as splashy or spectacular as most cameramen who work with the hand-held camera, but he's incredibly secure with what he sees and responds to. He has unique vision and great integrity," Mr. KING once said of Mr. LEITERMAN's techniques and style. "He never grabs at a subject; he doesn't push but responds to what's happening in front of the camera, with the result that he gets more respect from his subjects than anyone I know. If there was a shot I had to get, I'd give it to Richard."
At the end of the decade, Mr. LEITERMAN threw himself into another Allan KING project, A Married Couple. It was an early example of what television viewers today think of as reality television. The couple was Billy and Antoinette EDWARDS of Toronto. A camera crew visited their Rushton Road house for about 10 weeks and recorded their conversations, their ferocious arguments, and their moments of tenderness.
Mr. LEITERMAN told Billy and Antoinette: "Don't recognize us, don't give us a cup of coffee in the morning. We won't tell you when we're coming. We won't say goodbye when we leave."
He installed light brackets on the walls and put photo floodlights in the table lamps. Then he and Chris WANGLER, the soundman, showed up with their equipment. And waited for something to happen.
The film, whose obscene language created trouble with Ontario film Censors, was a hit. Clive Barnes in The New York Times called it "quite simply one of the greatest films I've ever seen."
Many thought it opened a new period in documentary film; it was shown at festivals and much discussed. In the United States, it was imitated by the producers of An American Family, which ran in the 1972-73 season and became perhaps the most popular series ever made for PBS. Mr. LEITERMAN's hand-held, swish-pan style was eventually adopted by fiction films, including Woody Allen's Husbands and Wives.
That same year, Mr. SHEBIB, then a young Toronto director asked Mr. LEITERMAN if he'd like to shoot a low-budget movie about Maritimers down on their luck in Toronto. Having agreed to be part of the three-man crew, Mr. LEITERMAN brought his documentary eye to fiction filmmaking with Goin' Down the Road. During the filming, he says he learned "a hell of a lot" about transition, priorities and collaboration.
"It was a learning experience for both of us," he told an interviewer, referring to himself and Mr. SHEBIB. "We shot it with minimal lighting, we shot it at 16. We would look around and see what there was in the script and see what the weather was like. Sometimes there was just nothing to shoot, and we'd say to the two lead actors, 'Okay guys, go out and do something. It's snowing, the sun is shining, it's a beautiful afternoon, let's do something.' So they'd go out and have a snowball fight. It's what the characters would have done. They would have said, "To hell with job hunting, we'll go for a walk in Edwards Gardens and throw snowballs at each other." Mr. LEITERMAN and Mr. SHEBIB went on to collaborate on several more features and documentaries including Rip-Off (1971) and Between Friends (1973). Along with making films, a concern with labour practices within the industry led Mr. LEITERMAN to help organize the Canadian cameramen's union. When he wasn't working, Mr. LEITERMAN loved to sail on his eight-metre boat. Every summer he would take a 10-day solo trip to B.C.'s Desolation Sound. But sailing wasn't limited to summertime. He was also known to take his boat out in the midst of a winter storm. "He was a person who lived on the edge," said his widow Margaret LEITERMAN.
Mr. LEITERMAN won a Canadian Film Award for Cinematography for his work on Joyce Wieland's The Far Shore (1975) and a Genie Award for Best Cinematography for Mr. KING's Silence of the North (1981). In 2000, he received the Kodak New Century Award for outstanding contribution to the art of cinematography, from the Canadian Society of Cinematographers. Recently, Mr. LEITERMAN shot movies for television, directed episodes of the Vancouver-shot series Cold Squad and taught cinematography at Sheridan College in Toronto. By all accounts, he had a reputation for demanding the best of his students.
"If you are going to carry on in this business, then the most important thing is to keep the faith," he liked to say. "Be passionate."
Richard LEITERMAN was born on April 7, 1935, in South Porcupine, Ontario, and died in Vancouver on July 14, 2005. He was 70.
Cause of death was complications from the rare disease amyloidosis, in which the body's organ systems accumulate deposits of abnormal proteins. He was diagnosed in December and spent the last few weeks of his life confined to a wheelchair.
He is survived by his wife Margaret, son Mark, daughter Rachel, granddaughter Clara and siblings Elaine, Phyllis, Catherine and Douglas, also a filmmaker.
His ashes were scattered in the Pacific Ocean.

VANDUZER, The Honourable Mr. Justice John Elston
Nov. 8, 2005 If ever there lived a modern-day chevalier, that man was John Elston VANDUZER. Born October 14, 1927 in Winona, south of Hamilton, John was raised with his brother Dick on the family fruit farm but felt destined to be a city gentleman. After completing his secondary education in Hamilton, John did his B.A. at McMaster University (1950) before attending Osgoode Hall. After articling with Fraser and Beatty, he entered into private practice in Hamilton, but found his real calling when he was appointed to the Family Court, in 1966. John's professional life was a memorable succession of selfless initiatives: he co-founded the Unified Family Court in 1976, was the first Canadian President of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts, set up the Dawn Patrol Group Home to aid troubled youth, was an Elder and Sunday School Teacher at St. Giles' United Church, served on the Committee for Citizens of Distinction and as President of the Hamilton Community Concert. John was a tireless advocate for families and a leading member of his community. In recognition of this, he was awarded an Honourary Doctorate of Laws by McMaster University in 2003.
Above all, John treasured his family. He was blessed with two wonderful marriages: the first to Betty ANDERSON, whom he met in Latin class at McMaster and married in 1955 and with whom he had three children, Tony (Jodie KARPF,) Peter (Kathy HALLIDAY,) and Sarah (John HELSTON.) After Betty's death in 1984, John entered into a joyous union with Joan WANSBROUGH (née LAWSON) in 1985 and found himself a delighted stepfather to Michael (Liane BEAM,) Connie (Eric LOWY) and Gwyn (Andres DUSSAN.) He was an adored Grandpa to Taylor, Eli, Anders, Mac, Simone, Claire, Melissa, Kaitlin, Diego and Daniela.
A master storyteller, dapper dresser and consummate host, John enjoyed life to the full. With Joan he travelled the world, enjoyed the arts, entertained his wide circle of dear Friends, and reveled in the beauty of their cottage on Peninsula Lake, and their farm at Mansfield.
The best summary of John's life comes from his granddaughter, Simone. When in 2002 John retired from the bench and was feted during his last day in court, in full regalia and with many testimonials to his skills in jurisprudence and mediation, four-year-old Simone looked up at her Uncle Peter and, in an awestruck voice, asked "Is Grandpa a hero?" Yes, Simone, John Elston VANDUZER was a hero.
There will be a Celebration and Tribute to John at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club, 232 Golf Links Road, Ancaster, on Sunday, November 13th, 2005, from 12: 00-3:00 p.m. John would love all his Friends and family to be there.
Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the John E. VanDuzer Scholarship Fund through the Hamilton Community Foundation, 120 King St. W., Suite 700, Hamilton, L8C 4V2.
