BRETT, Slade Egerton (1920-2006)
The family announces with sadness that Slade Egerton BRETT died peacefully in his sleep on March 16th at Grace Hospital in Toronto at the age of 85 years. With his loving wife Sonia ZAHARA at his side, Slade slipped away after suffering for several months from cancer, an illness he dealt with in his graceful and dignified way. Slade was predeceased by his parents Dorothy and Ronald BRETT and his brother William. He is survived by his sister and brother-in-law Rosina and Jeremy BOOTH of Fakenham, England and his brothers-in-law, Ted ZAHARA (Deborra LEM) of Collingwood, Ontario and Donald ZAHARA of China. He was the proud and loving uncle of Owen ZAHARA, Suzanne PRATLEY and Leslie ZAHARA, and caring godfather of Nicola BRADBURY and Jessica CAMPBELL. Born in Duncan, British Columbia on July 21st, 1920, as a young boy Slade moved to England. In 1937 he enrolled in the University of London and entered the University Officer Cadet Corps, from which he joined the Queens Own Regiment in 1940 and was later commissioned into the Middlesex Regiment. During World War 2 Slade served in England until 1943 and in North Africa, Italy, and Greece until 1946, attaining the rank of Captain. Upon his return to the United Kingdom he enrolled in Imperial College. Slade returned to Canada in 1955 where he later graduated in Geological Studies from Queen's University in Kingston and University of Toronto, Ontario. For many years Slade worked in the geological field throughout Canada. He eventually became a high school teacher with the North York Board of Education as the head of Chemistry at C.W. Jefferys S.S. Slade was a sensitive lover of nature and the environment, of music and books, and especially of travel. He and Sonia enjoyed many wonderful trips and adventures together and he was busy planning another to Turkey when he became ill. His colleagues and students will remember him as a gifted teacher, a conscientious administrator and a superb mentor. Slade's many Friends will remember with affection and admiration his wide-ranging interests, his genuine concern for others, his gentlemanly nature and his indomitable spirit. His spirit soars with the eagles. A memorial to celebrate his life will be held at a later date. As expressions of sympathy, donations to World Vision of Canada or to the charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.

John Creighton DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS, Engineer: (1924-2006)
Unsung hero of Canada's Imax success story knew how to make the big-screen technology work
By M.J. STONE, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Montreal -- He was the man in the engine room of the good ship Imax. John Creighton DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS was an engineering guru, a genius at tinkering who was the brains behind making the Imax corporation's giant-screen technology work as well as it did. Years before, he was the wizard who helped keep Expo 67's Labyrinth film project going. And when it was all over, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS went back to his first love -- the humble train.
In the meantime, his other passion remained electronics. As a teenager during the Depression, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS's future in telecommunications was foreshadowed when he plied his talent for radio repair in the small town of Sutton in Quebec's Eastern Townships. Neighbours and customers paid 25 cents to have their wonky Radiolas, RCA Victors and Silvertones tinkered back into working order.
At 18, poor eyesight disqualified him from serving in any of the Canadian armed forces during the Second World War. At the suggestion of doctors who advised he spend less time in libraries with his head buried in books, he worked for a year with the Canadian Pacific Railroad and then enrolled at McGill University.
It was while earning his degree in science that he met his wife, Althea McCOY, a likeminded student who became his life-long collaborator. They were both involved in the McGill drama department. Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS was in charge of lighting and his future wife was the costume co-ordinator. Their initial collaboration at the McGill Red and White Revue revealed a symbiotic relationship that would often find the couple working side by side."The smartest thing I ever did was to marry him," said writer and archivist Althea DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS. "Creighton was my favourite proof reader and copy editor."
The couple married in 1948 and the following year he departed for a career in the Quebec wilderness repairing radio transmitters for Canadian Marconi. He later travelled to England, sent by Marconi, to study the emerging world of television.
When the couple returned to Canada, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS began demonstrating the principles of television at trade fairs. With both of them operating a camera, the duo wowed Toronto audiences at the Canadian National Exhibition in 1950. Althea DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS recalled how aiming the camera at the crowds delighted visitors, who, through closed-circuit monitors, discovered themselves on television for the first time. Commercial television was still a few years away and she lays claim that the experience at the Canadian National Exhibition made her Canada's first female operator of a television camera.
Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS's cutting-edge knowledge of the new medium resulted in work as a consultant with the Canadian Broadcasting Company when it first went on the air in 1952. Later, he returned to Canadian Marconi as the engineering manager for Montreal's CFCF radio and in 1961, he supervised the construction of a television transmission tower. Erected at the top of Mount Royal, it broadcast the first television signals when CFCF-television at last went on the air.
Regarded as a technical genius, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS was the go-to person hired by the National Film Board of Canada to orchestrate the Labyrinth project for the 1967 world's fair in Montreal. A multiscreen film, In the Labyrinth, was a smash hit at Expo and is considered the precursor to today's large-format films. Using a complicated projection system with three synchronized viewing chambers, it featured stereo sound and a mirrored maze.
Colin Low, the National Film Board of Canada's former head of animation, said that Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS possessed the right mix of flexibility and vigour necessary to handle the madness that In the Labyrinth inspired. "A lot of things, we had never tried before. Creighton was intrigued by it. He made it work. Labyrinth was one of the starting points for Imax technology."
Imax was a revolution in the movie industry. What made it arrestingly different was the sheer size and crispness of the projected image, combined with resonant, multitrack sound systems. No matter what the subject, watching can be viscerally intense -- a fact that directors have exploited with roller-coaster intensity ever since the first Imax title, North of Superior, lit up the media. The format uses the largest film frame in movie history, 10 times the size of conventional 35-mm film. The screens, too, were oversized, as tall as eight storeys.
The system was the brainchild of five Canadian visionaries who toiled for more than a quarter of a century to make Imax Corp. a household word in entertainment. Graeme FERGUSON, Robert KERR, Roman KROITOR, Bill SHAW and Bill BREUKELMAN founded Imax and pioneered the giant-screen, large-format film medium before selling the technology in 1994 to a group of American investors for about $100-million (U.S.).
All the same, few knew the system better than Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS. In 1981, Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS found himself in France supervising the installation of a new generation of Imax screens. His final Imax project was to co-ordinate the installation of the company's theatre at the Museum of Civilization.
In retirement, he returned to the much less complicated technology of locomotives, and the tracks they travelled down. His interest also left its mark on his marriage, for his wife possessed railway roots of her own ("My father worked for the Canadian National Railway," she said), and together they co-wrote Canadian Railway Records: A Guide for Genealogists, a resource for families with rail connections going back about 150 years.
The DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS manual, composed for family historians, offers tips and resources for recovering historical records of family members via ticket sales and the vast network of railway payrolls, journals, magazines and subsidiary companies. In the introduction, the couple wrote, "this book has been a joint effort but we each have our own areas of expertise. Creighton wrote much of the material on the railway way of life, working conditions and so on. Althea did the archival work checking documents and bibliographical data and wrote about libraries and archives so, inevitably, on occasion we wrote in the first person singular and at other times in the first person plural."
Mr. DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS also added a consumer warning: "The railway offers such a variety of intriguing information and experience that there is some aspect that will intrigue almost everyone." In other words, railways are highly addictive and can absorb all your free time and available money.
John Creighton DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS was born on August 15, 1924, in Cowansville, Quebec He died of a congestive heart failure on February 6, 2006 in Ottawa. He is survived by his wife.

A terrible price
4 more Canadians die in Afghanistan.
By Murray BREWSTER, Canadian Press and Free Press Staff, Sun., April 23, 2006
Kandahar, Afghanistan -- Taliban militants struck with fury early yesterday, killing four soldiers in one of the worst one-day combat losses for the Canadian army since the Korean War.
The soldiers were identified as:
- Cpl. Matthew DINNING of Wingham, stationed with the 2nd Canadian Mechanized Brigade in Petawawa.
- Bombardier Myles MANSELL of Victoria.
- Lieut. William TURNER of Toronto, but stationed in Edmonton.
- Cpl. Randy PAYNE, born in Lahr, Germany, but stationed at Canadian Forces Base Wainright, Alberta.
Two of the troopers were part of Brig.-Gen. David Fraser's personal protection force. The third was an artillery non-commissioned officer and the fourth man was a liaison officer with local tribal leaders.
In Wingham, Friends of the DINNING family paid tribute to Matthew.
"He was a tremendous young chap, a great young fellow," said former neighbour Jack GOODALL.
Matthew DINNING, 23, was inspired to join the military by his father, an Ontario Provincial Police officer who served as a peacekeeper in Kosovo, Friends said.
"It's closer to home," said Fraser, having to look away after being asked about the close-knit group he often calls his posse. "Every soldier over here is important to me. I feel that way about everybody in the brigade, but I knew these guys."
A bomb, which may have been buried in the road, detonated just outside the village of Gumbad, 75 kilometres north of Kandahar. The huge explosion was reportedly felt kilometres away.
The four-vehicle convoy was returning to Kandahar after Fraser's goodwill visit Friday with village elders. The general, who is also the multi-national brigade commander in southern Afghanistan, returned by helicopter Friday night.
The third vehicle in the convoy, a G-Wagon carrying the four soldiers, was struck by an improvised explosive device at about 7: 30 a.m. local time.
Three of the soldiers died at the scene and the fourth died in hospital after being airlifted by a U.S. Blackhawk helicopter.
"While we are saddened by their loss, we will not forget them or their sacrifice," said Fraser, calling the soldiers "outstanding Canadians" who believed in what they were doing in Afghanistan.
"We will redouble our efforts in southern Afghanistan in their memory."
There was stunned disbelief among troops at Kandahar airfield, the main coalition base in southern Afghanistan.
"It was so many at once, four guys," said Capt. Janus Cihlar.
"When you know them, perhaps not personally, but have worked with them, it hits even harder."
Cihlar said the loss strengthens the resolve of soldiers on the ground.
"Once everyone has a chance to take their pause and get over the initial shock of the news, certainly everyone buckles down and says, 'We have a job here and a mission here.' "
The bodies will be returned to Canada early in the week, with a ramp ceremony on the tarmac at Kandahar airfield planned for tomorrow, said Col. Tom Putt, deputy commanding officer of Task Force Afghanistan.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper issued a statement extending his condolences to the family and Friends of the four slain soldiers.
"These men were working to bring security, democracy, self-sufficiency and prosperity to the Afghan people and to protect Canadians' national and collective security," Harper said. "I am proud of the work that is being done there and the men and women who put their lives on the line every day to do it."
The flag continued to fly yesterday on the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa. The newly elected Conservative government has said it will no longer lower the flag to half-staff every time a Canadian soldier is killed, a break with tradition established by the Liberals.
A total of 15 Canadian soldiers and one diplomat have died since 2002, when Canada first became involved in Afghanistan following the ouster of the hardline Taliban regime.
The last time the army suffered a one-day loss of this scale was in April 2002, when four Canadian soldiers were mistakenly bombed by a U.S. fighter jet.
Before that, army historians would have to reach back to May 1953, when the Royal Canadian Regiment suffered a horrendous one-day combat loss during the Korean War. About two dozen Canadians died while holding off an enemy attack during that battle.
Two more explosions shook the main coalition airbase in southern Afghanistan early today, officials said.
No damage or casualties were reported.
