George BAIN, Journalist And Teacher (1920-2006)
He compensated for his minimal education by hard work, deep research and a fastidiousness that won him a string of plum reporting jobs at The Globe, writes Sandra MARTIN. It also won him the ire of Pierre Trudeau after he pilloried the then prime minister for swearing in the House of Commons
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
A self-described contrarian, George BAIN was the pre-eminent political columnist of his era, and undoubtedly the most versatile. He was equally adept at skewering prime ministers and crinkling the morning pages of the good grey Globe and Mail with clever playful conceits. Self-educated, debonair and proud -- some might say arrogant -- he was proprietorial about his prose and he rarely brooked interference with either the content or the style of his copy.
Mr. BAIN opened The Globe's first foreign bureau in London and in Washington. He was an early opponent of the War Measures Act when it was proclaimed by Pierre Trudeau as a Draconian defence against a feared separatist insurrection and he later took Mr. Trudeau to task for swearing in the House of Commons and fibbing about it afterward in what came to be known as the "fuddle duddle" incident. That gave Mr. BAIN another first -- the deliberate use of the word "fuck" in a Globe and Mail column.
"He combined the free-spirited moxie of the old school with the thoughtfulness and professionalism of the new," wrote David Hayes in Power and Influence, his 1992 history of The Globe. "He was a master at developing sources, learning that small fry within the departments were often more useful than big-name politicians and bureaucrats."
Intense, and suffering from diverticulitis, a disease of the colon, Mr. BAIN often vomited from stress when he was writing his column. Poking fun at himself, he once mockingly denied the "widespread belief" that "when the BAIN stomach suffers an overdose of acidity, the BAIN wit flowers most brilliantly."
High principled, bristling with integrity and fastidious in his attire, Mr. BAIN was "impossible" to manage, said Clark DAVEY, a former managing editor of The Globe and a friend since the 1950s. "George had his view and the rest of the world could go to hell, which is a great thing in a columnist and a helluva problem in an employee."
Describing Mr. BAIN as passionate about writing, reading, drinking fine vintages, building stone walls and the practise and process of politics, Mr. DAVEY said he will always remember his elegance not only in the way that he dressed and wrote, but in the way he thought about the world. "He made me feel good about myself because I was in the same business."
George Charles Stewart BAIN was the eldest of four children of William Steward and Mary (née ROSS) BAIN. His father was president of the Bain Coal Co. and his mother was a homemaker. The family lived in north Toronto, where George attended Hodgson Public School and then North Toronto Collegiate.
At 16, he wrote a letter to the city editor of the Toronto Daily Star, presenting his services as a "journalist," an offer that was politely declined. Finish the school year, the editor advised, and then come and ask about a summer job as a copy boy. When George showed up in June, the editor was on vacation. So he went to the rival paper, the Toronto Telegram, told them he had come from the Star and was hired right away. "Newspapers are like that. They have a tendency to think the people at the other place are better than the ones they have," he observed later. "In any event, it turned out to be a good move; the Tely was paying $8 for a five-and-a-half-day week, whereas the Star was paying only Two dollars was an important distinction in the mid-1930s, especially since his father had died of a heart attack that summer and his mother passed away in 1939. "We were sort of adrift," said Mr. BAIN's younger brother, Ian, now a retired social worker. "George was on his own and the rest of us were farmed out to relatives." Ian was sent to Winnipeg, and Moyna and Sheila to Scotland.
As for George, he stayed at the Tely and never again saw the inside of a classroom -- at least as a student. For the rest of his working life, he camouflaged his lack of formal education by hard work, deep research and meticulous attention to his literary and sartorial style. Sounding, reading and looking the part of a well-educated professional became a protective armour. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1940 and spent four years overseas as a bomber pilot. Assigned to 424 Squadron, he flew Wellingtons over Europe, North Africa, Italy and Sicily, returning to Canada late in 1944. On December 16, he married Marion Jene BREAKEY, whom he had met before the war when both of them were working in downtown Toronto. A former secretary and an accomplished cook, she typed all his book manuscripts and supplied all the recipes for his 1972 book, Champagne is for Breakfast. They had one son, Christopher, who was born in 1953. She died in 1998.
After Mr. BAIN was demobilized, he briefly went back to the Telegram, then joined The Globe and Mail as a reporter in October of 1945. He covered city hall and the provincial legislature at Queen's Park and acquired the nickname Basher after an altercation with a policeman "of considerable height and weight," according to Mr. BAIN's recollection. There is probably no connection between this anecdote and The Globe's decision to send Mr. BAIN to Ottawa as its parliamentary correspondent in the two-person Ottawa bureau in 1952.
In the mid-1950s, while still covering the House of Commons, Mr. BAIN was given a signed editorial column, a very unusual move in those days. "He may not have invented the genre, but he certainly perfected the breezy, shoot-from-the-hip style of political column-writing," Mr. Hayes observed in his book. Mr. BAIN delighted in breaking free from the constraints of the inverted pyramid style of newspaper writing that allowed editors to cut from the bottom and encouraged writers to produce action-packed top-heavy lead paragraphs.
Instead of writing for his editors or his colleagues, Mr. BAIN aimed directly at readers, shaking them awake with provocative ideas and shrewd analysis. He loved turning a phrase, switch-hitting political analysis with lighter fare or in introducing a budget discussion with a verse or two, as in: "Forget for the moment the taxes, / There's some cause for some feeble hosannas: / Pay heed that the budget relaxes/ The tariff that's paid on bananas."
The newspaper sent him to London in 1957 to open its first foreign bureau in a style that his son said belongs to a different era. They lived in Mayfair, he went to private school, they travelled extensively and entertained lavishly. Mr. BAIN arrived in Washington to open The Globe's first American bureau in 1961, just as John F. Kennedy was making American presidential politics glamorous. And he was there to cover the assassination from a Canadian perspective.
Back in Ottawa in 1964, he revived his national affairs column and published many of his older pieces in a book, I've Been Around and Around and Around. The next year, he published Nursery Rhymes to be Read Aloud by Young Parents with Old Children, which won the Stephen Leacock Award for Humour. A Guide to Canadian Parliamentary Procedure came out in 1970.
In journalistic circles, he will always be remembered for his rejection of the War Measures Act after it was proclaimed on October 16, 1970. Such a Draconian law enraged his civil libertarian principles. "What's going on here?" he demanded the next morning in his column. He went on to argue that "either the government previously grossly underestimated the potential of the F.L.Q. and has only recently come into possession of alarming new facts, or its recent extreme actions are the result of panic, which itself is the result of frustration at being unable to do anything about the two kidnapped men."
Four months later, when Mr. Trudeau mouthed an obscenity in the House at John Lundrigan, a Progressive Conservative from Newfoundland, Mr. BAIN was riled again. He had never liked Mr. Trudeau's easy superiority, which probably rankled him because of his own carefully concealed hardscrabble roots. Sneering at "the-snotty-rich-kid-from-Outremont syndrome," Mr. BAIN condemned the prime minister's "covert, behind-the-hand" gesture because it enabled him to "express contempt for the opposition, without harming his image with the sweet little old ladies up and down the land who will insist upon believing that the Emperor is a much-abused man."
Mr. BAIN left The Globe twice. The first time was in 1973. Feeling stale and restless as a five-times-a-week columnist, he accepted an offer from the Toronto Star to become the paper's editorial page editor. "Where's BAIN?" came a letter from Mr. Trudeau, the same prime minister who had refused to give Mr. BAIN an interview all the time he had worked for The Globe, according to Dic DOYLE in his memoir, Hurly-Burly: A Time at The Globe.
Administration not being Mr. BAIN's strength, he wisely extracted a promise of a foreign posting from Martin GOODMAN, then editor of the Star, as an escape tunnel if he and the editorial board proved incompatible -- as it surely did under the idiosyncratic demands of publisher Beland HONDERICH. Before he departed for London as European and Middle East correspondent for The Star, Mr. BAIN left a note for his successor at the editorial board he had probably borrowed from H.L. Mencken: "Writing editorials is like wetting your pants while wearing a blue serge suit. Nobody notices and it leaves you with a warm feeling."
In 1978, he published Letters from Lilac, with illustrations by Duncan MacPHERSON, a collection of the whimsical columns he had written in The Globe as fictional letters from Clem Watkins Jr., a rural Pepys reporting on the state of the nation from the imaginary town of Lilac, Saskatchewan. Mr. BAIN, who wrote five times a week, had invented Clem and Lilac as comic relief for himself and his readers.
He worked at the Star for six years until he resigned to take up an appointment as director of the journalism school at King's College in Halifax in 1979. Writer Stephen Kimber, who still teaches at the school, was one of Mr. BAIN's early hires. He remembers a time, probably in 1980 or 1981, when Clark Davey was visiting Halifax. "George, who had a habit of dropping in on the all-night production sessions for the school's weekly newspaper, dragged him along. They arrived somewhere around 2 in the morning and were quickly put to work writing headlines for The Monitor. That they cheerfully pitched in left a real impression on the students."
Although Mr. BAIN had officially left daily journalism for academe, he kept on writing columns and articles for a number of outlets. In the 1980s and '90s, he wrote regular columns for various outlets, including a media column in Maclean's, features for Saturday Night, a wine column for Air Canada's En Route magazine and a national affairs column in Report on Business magazine. With a change of editorship at the Report On Business magazine, Mr. BAIN was dropped, a decision he took very hard.
Having disappeared from The Globe once before, he was determined to write a final column to mark his exit this time. The Globe wouldn't print it, citing a policy of not publishing final columns, but the Toronto Sun's Douglas FISHER had no such qualms. "The eventual final parting has been in the works for some time in circumstances of extraordinary unpleasantness… and when I sat down this morning… ready to add another to what must be more than 3,000 columns, on this page, I found myself asking, 'What in hell am I doing here?' " In a final word to his readers, he wrote: "I'll be seeing you around. But not here, not here."
Always acerbic, often testy, Mr. BAIN got grumpier as the decades passed. In 1994, he published his most serious book, Gotcha: How the Media Distort the News, a heavily researched critique of the way journalists (mainly from a generation younger than his) covered news and especially political stories. Derived mainly from his media column in Maclean's, Mr. BAIN was particularly incensed about the way broadcast and print journalists had covered the Mulroney government: "The most intense and unrelenting campaign of denigration that any Canadian government has faced at least this side of the Second World War."
Journalists have both power and influence, so having someone with the integrity and credentials of Mr. BAIN take them to task on ethical issues is both useful and instructive. But he seemed incapable of mixing any wine with his vinegar in Gotcha, with the result that he often sounded simply sour.
The BAINs continued to live in Nova Scotia after he retired from teaching at King's, having bought a property and built a home (with a cellar for his vintage wine collection) on the water in Mahone Bay. Carleton University gave him an honorary degree in 1983 and so did King's in 1986. Although he never was appointed to the Senate, like his old boss Dic DOYLE, he was made a member of the Order of Canada in 2001. He travelled to Ottawa for the investiture and made a witty speech, but, by then, he had begun his serious decline into Alzheimer's disease. Old habits continued, and he was still trying to write in the fall of 2004 when he could no longer live on his own and moved into a veterans hospital.
George BAIN was born in Toronto on January 29, 1920. He died in Halifax on May 14. He was 86. He is survived by his son Christopher, two grandchildren and his three younger siblings and their families.

BRÉBEUF, Jean de, 1649 -- Died This Day
Jesuit missionary born at Condé-sur-Vire, France, on March 25, Ordained in 1622, he arrived in New France in 1625 and, the following year, was sent as a missionary to the Huron of Georgian Bay in what is now Ontario. A skilled linguist, he learned their language and preached there until 1629, when he was recalled to France. Five years later, he was put in charge of a mission near what is now Midland, Ontario Over the next 10 years, he wrote a Huron dictionary, steadily claimed converts and tried his best to care for the health of the Huron. Smallpox struck the community in 1640 and the Huron rose up in a savage attack. For a time, he ran a mission among the Neutral but was distrusted. In 1644, he tried again at Huronia, but, in March of 1649, he was taken by a Iroquois war party. Along with the missionary Gabriel LALEMANT, he was tortured, mutilated and burned to death. His bones are buried at the Martyrs' Shrine near Midland. In 1930, he was canonized with seven other missionaries. He is the patron saint of Canada.

BREEN, Faith Wood (1917-2005)
Member, Arts and Letters Club of Toronto; Heliconian Club of Toronto Society of Canadian Artists (honourary lifetime member). Faith Wood grew up in Sackville, New Brunswick, and spent many happy childhood summers at Mount Uniacke, built by her ancestor Richard John UNIACKE, where her lifelong love for painting and nature was born. After graduating in 1938 from Mount Allison University, she settled in Toronto to pursue her career teaching and painting portraits and landscapes. In 1950, she married Melwyn BREEN, one of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's pioneering television director-producers, and continued to paint while raising her three children. Upon Melwyn's death in 1968, she found renewed energy in her painting, and developed a fine reputation for her uniquely sensitive approach to portraiture. In later years she moved to her country home and studio outside Gravenhurst, Ontario, returning frequently to the city to spend time with her family and many Friends, while continuing to draw inspiration both from the landscape of Muskoka and travels to the Maritimes and elsewhere. Memorial service at Church of Saint Simon the Apostle on Tuesday, January 10th at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.
