DOYLE, H. Joyce (née ROSS) (1921-2006)
Sister, wife, mother, aunt, grandmother, friend. Suddenly, our beloved mother went to her final sleep on February 25, 2006. Joyce was the 8th child born to Hugh and Elizabeth ROSS (nee BEATTY.) Raised in Haileybury, Joyce survived the great Fire of 1922. A scholar and athlete, she studied Nursing at the Hospital for Sick Children. An award winning R.N. (Oct. '44), she trained and worked at both Thistledown and Toronto, before moving to work at the Montreal General. In Montreal, she met and married Gil, her husband of almost 52 years. Together, they returned to Toronto to open a Business and raise their family. Countless hours were spent cooking, sewing, at figure skating rinks, hockey games, swimming pools, ski-slopes and boating with her family. Mom juggled roles, raising her family, volunteering with the Red Cross and Toronto Public Health and the Anglican Church Women at St. Wilfrid's (Etobicoke). She curled, played bridge and travelled extensively throughout North America and Europe. Early retirement meant freedom and the opportunity to travel without a rigid timetable. In 1975, Joyce and Gil moved aboard the boat and spent the next seven years sailing and following the sun. These were some of Joyce's fondest memories; encompassing many people, places and experiences. Returning to Canada the couple settled in Colonial Woods. They were blessed with 5 cherished granddaughters and travelled throughout Great Britain and the U.S. and Canada by motor-home. In later years Joyce travelled to Greece, Italy and Egypt, fulfilling a lifelong dream to climb the Pyramids in her 79th year. A last 'jaunt' took her back to Greece in 2002. The loss of Gil (Feb.'02) and declining health, slowed Joyce down but her refusal to become 'an old woman' never died. Inner strength enabled mom to overcome many of the indignities of aging. Survived by sister, Marna TEDESCO (Cochrane,) Ivan ROSS (Sydney,) children Debbie (Dan), Ted (Lori), Peter (Sandie), Amanda and granddaughters Shannon, Robin, Emily, Stacey and Katie. Our thanks to the devoted staff at King Gardens Retirement Residence and Cawthra Gardens Nursing Home. Funeral service will be held at 11: 00 a.m. on Friday, March 3, 2006 at St. Hilary's Anglican Church, 2055 Hurontario Street, Mississauga, Ontario, L5A 2E6. (905-279-2304).

Ian SINCLAIR, Last Of The Railway Titans: (1913-2006)
He ran Canadian Pacific almost single-handedly, operating the giant company at a time when it was still the most powerful corporate force in the country
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
He was Canadian Pacific's last titan. Ian SINCLAIR ran Canadian Pacific from 1969 to 1981, a time when it was still the most powerful company in the country and owned everything from the railway, a shipping line and a hotel chain, to an airline and oil-and-gas assets. In 1988, he was identified as one of six Lords of the Line, a book by writer-historians David Cruise and Alison Griffiths that put him right up there with the first presidents of Canadian Pacific Railway: George STEPHEN, William VAN HORNE, Thomas SHAUGHNESSY, Edward BEATTY and Norris Roy (Buck) CRUMP.
Ian SINCLAIR was a tough and demanding boss at Canadian Pacific Enterprises. "We don't go to work at Canadian Pacific, we report for duty," he once said and cracked down on office workers goofing off in the middle of the day. He did not want to see them loitering around the concourse of Windsor Station, the head office of the Canadian Pacific Railway. In his view, being seen in the favourite public gathering spot of the railway employees outside of lunch hour or coffee breaks could be a firing offence. Later in his career, he was known as Big Julie, but it's unlikely anyone ever called him that to his face.
Unlike many corporate leaders of the day, Mr. SINCLAIR was outspoken on public issues and even a bit of a Canadian nationalist. He got on so well with prime minister Pierre Trudeau that he was named to the Senate after he retired in 1984.
The empire Ian SINCLAIR ruled over had started out the Canadian Pacific Railway. The Canadian Pacific Railway picked up a lot of its assets in the 19th century, including a land grant of 25 million acres to build the railway. Much of the land was sold to settlers, but oil was later found on the railway's properties. Hotels were built along the way, as well as a shipping line to bring immigrants and goods to Canada. By the time he left, the railway no longer took passengers, the airline was gone and the company had strayed so far from its roots that it had invested in huge swathes of forest. The trees were a mistake but, even so, Ian SINCLAIR had increased the assets of the Canadian Pacific Railway and made it easier for the company to be broken into five pieces in 2003.
Mr. SINCLAIR rose to prominence under Buck CRUMP. Both men were tough and confident leaders of Canada's greatest company. Mr. SINCLAIR joined Canadian Pacific Railway in 1942 in Winnipeg. His father had come from Scotland to work in the repair shops of the Grand Trunk Railway, one of the railways that made up rival Canadian National. Ian SINCLAIR went to the University of Manitoba, where he took a degree in economics and then another in law.
His first job at the Canadian Pacific Railway was as an assistant solicitor and he quickly made his mark. Four years later, he moved to head office at Windsor Station in Montreal. Mr. SINCLAIR was known as the Perry Mason of railway law, for his resemblance to the burly television lawyer and for his dogged defence of railway interests in a series of royal commissions and tribunals.
At that time, it was still a railway world. Mr. SINCLAIR and other top executives would travel across the country in private railway cars kept on sidings in Windsor Station. Ian SINCLAIR straddled the era of the steam engine and the diesel locomotive a struggle with the unions over who was to man the trains was one of his great victories.
The job, as he saw it, was to get rid of firemen. Steam engines required an engineer to drive the train and a fireman to feed the boiler. With the end of steam and the introduction of diesel electric trains, there was no need for firemen, but the union contract still called for them. It was a textbook case of feather-bedding. Mr. SINCLAIR won his case against the unions and the firemen were gone. In 1960, he became vice-president of law at Canadian Pacific Railway. He was next put in charge of the operating and traffic departments, so that by the time he was made president in 1969 there wasn't a piece of the railway he didn't know. He was 52.
Mr. SINCLAIR was a textbook workaholic who read the Globe and Mail and Report on Business first thing every morning and loved his job. "Some people may think that work is distasteful, but not I. I'm very happy when I work," said Mr. SINCLAIR. To him, running Canadian Pacific Railway was a group exercise. "Sometimes, we have our disappointments and we back off and take another look. Then we solve something -- when we make it good -- that's when work's most enjoyable."There were many problems to solve at the start of his reign. Canadian Pacific Railway wanted to get out of the passenger business. People were using highways and planes to get around and railways across the continent were dying. As a result, Via Rail was born as a merger of the passenger services of Canadian Pacific and Canadian National.
That did not mean there weren't profitable parts of the business. In 1958, Canadian Pacific Oil and Gas, the predecessor to PanCanadian Petroleum -- later Encana -- was formed with the purpose of reassembling the land, which had been leased to oil companies.
Four years later, Mr. CRUMP created a subsidiary called Canadian Pacific Investments, which was given all of Canadian Pacific's non-transportation assets (a structure designed to keep those interests off limits when Canadian Pacific had to undergo review by federal regulators). The new subsidiary's mandate was to acquire and develop resource operations.
The chief architect in the execution of this was Mr. SINCLAIR, who oversaw a period of unprecedented growth at Canadian Pacific. At the start of 1970, Canadian Pacific's asset value was $2.2-billion. A decade later, it was $13-billion, a spectacular growth even allowing for inflation. In the same period, Canadian Pacific's annual revenues swelled to $10-billion from $616-million, moving Canadian Pacific to No. 1 from No. 6 in the corporate size sweepstakes.
And he did it all in a way that is denied today's corporate executives. David O'BRIEN, the last man to run the entire Canadian Pacific empire, said in 2001 that life was different for Chairman SINCLAIR.
"I knew Ian SINCLAIR when I was a young boy. I don't think he met with more than three analysts the whole time he was running Canadian Pacific," said Mr. O'BRIEN. " Now, they're banging down your door every day."
Though Mr. SINCLAIR became a politician late in life, he was often frustrated by politics. In particular, he disliked the victory of the separatist government in Quebec and how it had hollowed out the business centre of Montreal. One after the other, companies fled for Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.
Corporate chronicler Peter Newman told a story of visiting Mr. SINCLAIR in his office at Windsor station and interviewing him across the giant oak desk once owned by Sir William VAN HORNE, the man who built the Canadian Pacific Railway. Mr. Newman asked him about the corporate exodus from Montreal.
"What's left in Montreal?" bellowed Mr. SINCLAIR, pounding his desk. "This damn desk."
That gruff personality was usually misunderstood, his daughter, Christine SINCLAIR, said yesterday. "In fact, he was a shy person and had trouble approaching people unless he already knew them."
She said he enjoyed gardening, particularly roses, and revelled in chopping wood. "He loved to see a cord of word stacked neatly."
All things considered, Mr. SINCLAIR probably would have taken to retirement earlier if Mr. Trudeau had not come calling. In 1983, Mr. SINCLAIR was made Senator SINCLAIR, just as he was leaving Canadian Pacific after 42 years. He surprised many of his corporate Friends by supporting the National Energy Policy and fighting free trade. He said the Americans were protectionist.
Mr. SINCLAIR was one of the toughest businessmen of his generation, and one of the most colourful. He stood well over six feet and once weighed as much as 240 pounds, bringing columnist Allan Fotheringham to describe him as "a linebacker who stumbled into the chairman's office by mistake."
For that, he did commit some spectacular errors. The man who engineered Canadian Pacific's enormous growth also made giant blunders. Among his mistakes was a missed opportunity to buy MacMillan Bloedel in 1979. A proposed buyout of the forestry giant prompted a corporate brawl between premier William Bennett and Mr. SINCLAIR. "B.C. is not for sale," declared Mr. Bennett, who had visions that MacMillan Bloedel would become little more than a branch office of the Montreal company whose railway had opened up the West.
Years later, Mr. Bennett confided that Mr. SINCLAIR had rubbed him up the wrong way -- much too arrogant, he said.
Another mistake was Mr. SINCLAIR's 1981 attempt to buy Hobart Corp. of Ohio, the appliance maker. For years, Canadian Pacific had wanted to establish a manufacturing arm, and by all accounts it was to be the foundation of that core business. Reports at the time suggested Mr. SINCLAIR mishandled the situation.
For all that, he didn't make many mistakes in office. While other North American railways failed in the transition from steam, Mr. SINCLAIR did his job -- he made Canadian Pacific hugely profitable.
Ian David SINCLAIR was born in Winnipeg on December 27, 1913. He died on Oakville, Ontario, on April 7, 2006. He was 92. His wife Ruth died in 1994. He is survived by his four children, Ian, Susan, Christine and Donald.

Force of nature in art world
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
He's the world-renowned geneticist, she was the starving artist, and yet he worshipped her.
"She was my hero," David SUZUKI said about his younger sister Aiko. "She was incredible, she lived the life of environmentalism. I don't think she ever passed beyond the poverty level of income, but she was wealthy in community."
Aiko SUZUKI was a fibre artist, who created that haunting pale hanging that floated throughout the main-floor hub of the Toronto Reference Library from 1981 until 2004, when it was removed for cleaning. She was also a sculptor, painter, printmaker, dance-set designer, curator, teacher.
Her Friends and artistic colleagues always thought of her as a force of nature -- and that was the phrase they used at her memorial service on January 14 at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre after SUZUKI died December 31, at age 68, in her Toronto home.
The day of the service was also the day of her final show in the centre's Gendai Gallery, which opened in 2000, six years after SUZUKI approached many within the Japanese-Canadian community with an idea of incorporating a gallery within the cultural centre.
Although weakened by her chemotherapy and worsening health, SUZUKI spent last summer in a makeshift studio in her garden, working on a series of pieces taken from the world of nature and from photographs by her daughter Chiyoko SZLAVNICS, who is a musician and composer living in Berlin.
They were smaller than her normal work and deceptively pretty. "I was shocked, the images were real -- fiddleheads, leaves -- not abstracts," SZLAVNICS said. But closer inspection revealed layering, complexity and depth.
SUZUKI called her show "From The Garden: Stage IV," a reference to her diagnosis of terminal cancer.
"I think it kept her alive," said her friend, composer Ann SOUTHAM. "She probably got grabbed by it."
SUZUKI was a strong, independent woman -- as a single mother raising a daughter and as an Asian woman in the testosterone-charged art scene, she had to be. She always organized her own shows. The reality was she usually didn't have a gallery to represent her works and for years had to do it herself.
Her last show was no different.
SUZUKI knew she wasn't going to be able to make her own opening. The day before she died, she told her daughter to call it off, believing it couldn't happen without her, but SZLAVNICS told her mother that this show would go on.
SZLAVNICS saw that her mother was relieved. After all, art is what she had always lived for.
SUZUKI spent her early childhood in a wartime internment camp in British Columbia, moving to Leamington and then London, Ontario, in 1945. Everyone in her family had an English and a Japanese name. She was Geraldine or Gerry, a high school cheerleader, beautiful.
David SUZUKI said their Canadian-born father had a "traditional, screwy attitude" about his daughters completing high school and then getting married, even as David was in the United States at university.
But Gerry SUZUKI discovered the world of art when she took a London Artists' Workshop featuring Greg Curnoe and Tony Urquhart. In 1958, she moved to Toronto, joined the Toronto Artists' Workshop, and a year later met Alex SZLAVNICS, a flamboyant Hungarian immigrant. Their 1965 marriage didn't last, but it was he who encouraged SUZUKI to recognize her heritage and use her Japanese name.
Her first solo show two years later at the Pollack Gallery was criticized for including a soundtrack. Local critic Kay KRITZWISER deemed the sound of a heart thumping a "distraction" from abstract art that was "strong enough to stand on its own," but SUZUKI's restless vision never recognized the boundaries separating one medium from another.
As she moved into fibre art, she also became a set designer, working with composer SOUTHAM and choreographer Trish BEATTY on many Toronto Dance Theatre productions. Her studio at Yonge and Bloor Sts. amounted to a fusion of poets, sound performers, musicians and artists.
"We were all flying by the seat of our pants," SOUTHAM said. "It was tremendous fun and it was impossible to say what it was all about."
SUZUKI's professional pinnacle may have occurred when architect Raymond Moriyama chose her to design the fibre sculpture for his new library building, but it came at a great cost.
She developed rheumatoid arthritis and lived on cortisone shots and in constant pain. She had "constant" surgery, her daughter said. Her hands, the tools with which she expressed herself, were gnarled and misshapen, yet art adviser and consultant Catherine MINARD remembers watching SUZUKI at work in her studio and marvelling at her fluidity and grace.
"Everything I saw was lyrical and had a lot of movement because of the influence of music on her work," MINARD said. "She always had jazz playing in her studio." In fact, someone who had seen SUZUKI's painting called Stan Get (z) Blue told the jazz musician about it. It became the cover of Voyage, Getz's 1986 album.
In 1988, after Japanese Canadians won redress -- money and an official apology from the federal government for its treatment of them during World War 2 -- writer Joy Kogawa approached SUZUKI about curating a joint exhibit of art by Indian, Inuit and Japanese-Canadian artists.
"For Aiko, it was the first time she realized the possibilities of being Japanese Canadian and how empowering that can be," said filmmaker Midi Onodera.
It was the beginning of SUZUKI's activism. She produced a directory of professional Japanese-Canadian artists, served on the board of the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre, founded the art gallery and curated several shows.
SUZUKI supported herself by teaching art at Upper Canada College and film animation at Harbourfront, and for years worked with the Inner City Angels organization.
She was diagnosed with breast cancer in the summer of 2002 and told she had six months to live, but this was a woman who was already living with pain and she wasn't stopping. She organized Paper/Stone/Scissors for the Gendai Gallery, installations by five traditional and five contemporary artists, and in May 2005 she unveiled her own show, "Bombard/Invade/Radiate: Witness at the A Space Gallery." It explored SUZUKI's reflections about the late Susan Sontag's pronouncement of the military characteristics of fighting cancer.
Everyone assumed it would be her last show. For anyone else it might have been. But SUZUKI not only lived for her art, she lived by her art, and she began work on the garden show that would open at her memorial.

DOYLE, H. Joyce (née ROSS) (1921-2006)
Sister, wife, mother, aunt, grandmother, friend. Suddenly, our beloved mother went to her final sleep on February 25, 2006. Joyce was the 8th child born to Hugh and Elizabeth ROSS (nee BEATTY.) Raised in Haileybury, Joyce survived the Great Fire of 1922. A scholar and athlete, she studied Nursing at the Hospital for Sick Children. An award winning R.N. (October '44), she trained and worked at both Thistledown and Toronto, before moving to work at the Montreal General. In Montreal, she met and married Gil, her husband of almost 52 years. Together, they returned to Toronto to open a business and raise their family. Countless hours were spent cooking, sewing, at figure skating rinks, hockey games, swimming pools, ski-slopes and boating with her family. Mom juggled roles, raising her family, volunteering with the Red Cross and Toronto Public Health and the Anglican Church Women at St. Wilfrid's (Etobicoke). She curled, played bridge and travelled extensively throughout North America and Europe. Early retirement meant freedom and the opportunity to travel without a rigid timetable. In 1975, Joyce and Gil moved aboard the boat and spent the next seven years sailing and following the sun. These were some of Joyce's fondest memories; encompassing many people, places and experiences. Returning to Canada the couple settled in Colonial Woods. They were blessed with 5 cherished granddaughters and travelled throughout Great Britain and the U.S. and Canada by motor-home. In later years Joyce travelled to Greece, Italy and Egypt, fulfilling a lifelong dream to climb the Pyramids in her 79th year. A last 'jaunt' took her back to Greece in 2002. The loss of Gil (February '02) and declining health, slowed Joyce down but her refusal to become 'an old woman' never died. Inner strength enabled Mom to overcome many of the indignities of aging. Survived by sister, Marna TEDESCO (Cochrane,) Ivan ROSS (Sydney,) children: Debbie (Dan), Ted (Lori), Peter (Sandie), Amanda and granddaughters: Shannon, Robin, Emily, Stacey and Katie. Our thanks to the devoted staff at King Gardens Retirement Residence and Cawthra Gardens Nursing Home. Funeral Service will be held at 11: 00 a.m. on Friday, March 3, 2006 at St. Hilary's Anglican Church, 2055 Hurontario Street, Mississauga, Ontario, L5A 2E6 (905-279-2304). In lieu of flowers, donations to the Salvation Army would be appreciated by the family. Arrangements entrusted to the Turner & Porter "Peel" Chapel (905-279-7663).
