'One of the great journalists of the day'
By Caroline ALPHONSO, Page A2
One of Canada's pre-eminent journalists and a long-time columnist for The Globe and Mail has died.
George BAIN, an elegant writer and The Globe's first Ottawa-based columnist, died in his sleep yesterday morning. He was 86.
Mr. BAIN was remembered by his son and former colleagues yesterday for his letters from Lilac, Saskatchewan., columns and his strong opinions about the Liberal government, especially former prime minister Pierre Trudeau.
Geoffrey STEVENS, a former managing editor, described him as "witty, strong-willed [and] absolutely determined in a lot of things that he said.
"He wasn't always right, but he was never in doubt," Mr. STEVENS said. "He was just one of the great journalists of the day."
Mr. BAIN began his career in journalism as a copy boy with the Toronto Star. He then worked as a reporter, columnist and editor for several newspapers, including The Globe and the Toronto Telegram. At one point, he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force and served as a pilot, flying against targets in Germany, Italy and Sicily.
But Mr. BAIN is best known for his work in journalism and his passion for the craft.
The floor of his Ottawa office was littered with balls of yellow copy paper. Mr. BAIN would start typing, be unhappy with what he had just produced, crunch it up and throw it over his shoulder, Mr. STEVENS recalled.
"George was a terrific writer. He was also quite independent in his views, quite irascible from time to time -- and courageous," he said. Mr. STEVENS said that although the newspaper may have supported the government of the time, Mr. BAIN didn't: "He was the journalist who stood up against the use of the War Measures Act in 1970 at the time of the F.L.Q. crisis," he said.
One of his most-remembered columns among former colleagues was when he used the word "fuck" -- the first time the word was ever used in The Globe. Several Conservatives had accused Mr. Trudeau of mouthing "fuck off" when a member of that party had directed a question about unemployment to the prime minister. Mr. Trudeau denied it, saying he had said "fuddle-duddle" instead. Mr. BAIN challenged the attitude and character of Mr. Trudeau. Soon after the column appeared, the editor at the time, Richard DOYLE, let other writers in the newsroom know that they weren't free to use the word whenever they felt it necessary.
This was not Mr. BAIN's only run-in with the late prime minister.
His son, Christopher, recalled a time when Mr. Trudeau was arriving in his limousine to pick his father up for an interview. When they had reached a stoplight, Mr. BAIN "just couldn't stomach this guy," Christopher said. He asked the driver to let him out of the car and he abandoned the interview.
Christopher BAIN has many amusing stories to tell of his father. One of his favourites is about their home in Rockcliffe. The house has since been torn down and replaced by another home. The current owners are none other than Jean CHRÉTIEN and his wife.
"I think it's kind of a cool twist that George, who was never a great fan of the Liberal government and wrote a number of columns slagging CHRÉTIEN's predecessor and idol, Trudeau, and CHRÉTIEN himself, well, CHRÉTIEN now finds himself living on the foundation of one of his greatest critics," Christopher BAIN said.
After working at various papers throughout his career, Mr. BAIN became the first dean of journalism at University of King's College in Halifax. He enjoyed teaching, and "he had a number of students that really loved him too," Christopher BAIN said.
Mr. BAIN and his wife bought property in Mahone Bay, just outside Halifax. Despite suffering from Alzheimer's disease, he continued his writing. He was the author of five books, and won the Stephen Leacock Medal for humour.
Says Mr. STEVENS: " Because he was the first Globe columnist in Ottawa, he was looked up to. He had a terrific influence as a result and everybody wanted to know what George BAIN was going to say about this, that and the other thing."
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday in Mahone Funeral Home, Mahone Bay.

Mary MacDONALD, Civil Servant (1918-2006)
For decades, she guarded the gates of power in the Prime Minister's Office, first as an 'indispensable' executive secretary to Lester PEARSON and then to Pierre TRUDEAU
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S11
Ottawa -- In 1967, Prime Minister Lester PEARSON needed to find a birthday gift for his executive assistant, and it had to be special. Mary MacDONALD had been with him 20 years and, as he admitted handsomely in his autobiography, "[she was] indispensable as my Girl Friday. Nobody ever served anyone with greater devotion."
So, what to give Miss MacDONALD for her 49th birthday on April 30, 1967? In the end, he settled on the perfect gift: the Bible presented to him by Prime Minister Mackenzie KING on September 10, 1948, when Mr. PEARSON was sworn as a member of the King's Privy Council for Canada. At the same time, Mr. PEARSON, arguably Canada's most famous diplomat, was appointed secretary of state for External Affairs, and the Bible had become a treasured family memento.
On the flyleaf, Mr. PEARSON wrote a warm and heartfelt message: "To Mary, with all of my best wishes and grateful appreciation for helping a P.C. become a p.m. … L. B. PEARSON." The Bible is now held in trust by Mr. PEARSON's grand_son, Michael, for his infant son.
Miss MacDONALD first joined Mr. PEARSON in 1947 at the then-Department of External Affairs. They had made a terrific team together, travelling the world when he was minister of External Affairs and then the country after he became leader of the Liberal Party of Canada in 1958.
As one of the gatekeepers to Mr. PEARSON, Miss MacDONALD did not suffer fools gladly. "My father owed his success in part, to her," said retired diplomat Geoffrey PEARSON at her funeral last week. "Success in politics, as in life, is often due to those who stand at the door."
Miss MacDONALD's working day always extended past 5 p.m., for 10 or 12 hours overall. She once wrote 91 letters in one day. Politics was her life, to the exclusion of everything else including marriage, except her family. Weekends were no different. If Mr. PEARSON and his wife Maryon needed her, Miss MacDONALD would be there.
"She really knew who was useful and kept him in touch with his constituents and vice-versa. She was a great organizer," said retired senator Landon PEARSON.
Mary MacDONALD grew up in Ottawa during the Depression. After graduating from the University of Ottawa in 1938, she spent five years with the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. In 1941, she joined the Canadian Red Cross Corps, shipping out to Britain two years later. A month after D-Day, June 6, 1944, she was sent to No. 12 Canadian General Hospital as a welfare officer. Since there was a shortage of nurses, her organizational skills were used to regulate the efficient flow of patients from the wards to the operating theatres.
Janet FLANDERS of Ottawa first met Miss MacDONALD in 1943, in a battered London at war. "She was bright and cheerful… She could do anything."
After returning to Ottawa in December of 1945, Miss MacDONALD joined the Department of External Affairs. Soon after, she was assigned to the new undersecretary of external affairs, just back from Washington as Canadian ambassador. Lester "Mike" PEARSON was a rising star and it took very little time for them to develop a working relationship, although she never called him anything other than "Mr. PEARSON."
For the next 12 years, Miss MacDONALD received an education in foreign affairs, as her boss helped Prime Minister Louis SAINT_LAURENT make Canada an important player on the world stage. It was the beginning of the Cold War and Canada's foreign policy included giving strong support to her allies in North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the United Nations. She also obtained a master's degree in political science in 1948, but paused in her own advancement to help old Friends, one of whom was Janet FLANDERS. " After the war, she got me a job in External in 1947&hellip We were close Friends for 60 years. You don't come across people of her calibre very often."
Another of her Friends was Aline CHRÉTIEN, wife of former prime minister Jean CHRÉTIEN. They had met in 1963 after Mr. CHRÉTIEN was first elected to the House of Commons. "We saw her all the time. She was devoted to her boss, Mr. PEARSON, her Friends and family," said Mrs. CHRÉTIEN. " She was like a mother to all sorts of people… Jean and I loved her."
During Mr. PEARSON's 20 years in federal politics, Miss MacDONALD played a part in getting him elected eight times in his riding of Algoma East, in Northern Ontario. He was fortunate to have Miss MacDONALD as his riding secretary, he once wrote. She was a "very friendly, outgoing person who enjoyed meeting new people. She became the bulwark of my political life and soon knew everyone in the constituency, to my great advantage."
In fact, Time magazine said the only person who could ever dethrone Mr. PEARSON in Algoma East was Miss MacDONALD. After Mr. PEARSON was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo in 1957 for helping secure peace in the 1956 Suez Crisis, he found himself out of office when John Diefenbaker's Conservatives won the next election. An exhausted Louis SSAINTURENT resigned as Liberal chief and Miss MacDONALD became the executive assistant to the new leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition. Five long years in opposition followed, until Mr. PEARSON beat Mr. Diefenbaker and became the 14th prime minister of Canada on April 22, 1963.
A devoted Liberal, she also served Mr. PEARSON's successor. When Pierre Elliott TRUDEAU took over as Prime Minister on April 20, 1968, he was advised that continuity in the Prime Minister's Office was important and that Miss MacDONALD could provide it. After all, she knew everyone in Ottawa.
For the next 11 years, she was Mr. TRUDEAU's administrative and constituency liaison officer, ruling a staff of 15 secretaries with tact and humour. Isabel METCALFE of Ottawa was one of them. "She was marvellous to us. She encouraged us, gave us advice she was fun. She was meticulous in upholding the standards of the Prime Minister's Office. She was an inspiration to us in the context of political activism."
It was the role in which she probably felt most comfortable and most effective. In 1968, rumours swirled around Parliament Hill that Mr. PEARSON was thinking about appointing her to the Senate. For reasons that may never be fully known, it didn't happened. Instead, former Liberal cabinet minister Paul Martin, Sr., got the call.
Landon PEARSON, who was Lester PEARSON's daughter-in-law, believes Miss MacDONALD "would have made an excellent senator. She had excellent political instincts and knew politics. She was a great organizer. In my view, she was never adequately recognized by the men."
In 1979, Miss MacDONALD retired and the following year she was content to receive the Order of Canada. From her point of view, it was probably more than enough. After sitting at the right hands of Lester PEARSON and Pierre TRUDEAU, she had seen it all.
"Behind every great man is a surprised woman, my mother used to say," said Geoffrey PEARSON. " Mary was never surprised."
Mary Elizabeth MacDONALD was born on April 30, 1918, in North Cobalt, Ontario She died of a stroke on June 5 in Ottawa. She was 88. She leaves her sister Kay, her nephews Peter, Joe, Paul, John and Greg. She was predeceased by her brother Neil.

Passed away peacefully on February 10, 2006. Born in Montreal on March 6, 1920, Coula was the beloved sister of Helen (Eleni) LIASKOS, Mariya CHRISTIDIS and the late Dean and George SPERDAKOS. She will be forever cherished by her adoring nieces Anastasia (Tassie) CAMERON and Diane GOUZOPOULOS, Paula and Sophia SPERDAKOS, Aurora, Ophelia, Thalia CHRISTIDIS and nephew Alexander CHRISIDIS. Coula was loved by her great-nieces and great-nephews who enjoyed her unique spirit and interest in them. She is also survived by her son George TRAKAS and granddaughter Maggie TRAKAS and nieces and nephew. Coula was a wonderful woman, who brought love and joy to anyone lucky enough to spend time with her. Her sister, Eleni, knew that better than anyone, and enjoyed a special relationship with her. Their bonds were not inspired by blood alone. They loved each other's company and were simply the best of Friends. They were devoted to each other always. People were easily touched by Coula's nurturing warmth, impeccable taste and fine beauty. Her cooking was delicious enough to feed the gods and she graciously and generously shared it with many. Her nature was to heal and love people whom she met. She was an attentive listener who offered guidance without judgment, commiserating with sorrows, diffusing anger and softening the blows of disappointments. Time spent with beautiful Coula inevitably left one bolstered with confidence to move forward. Students at McGill University still remember her kind and caring ways 30 years after she was a student advisor there. Those of us who loved her are blessed with incredible memories of time spent in her company. Coula, you will be remembered, missed and forever in our hearts.

MORRISON, Hugh Whitney, B.A. (Alta,) B.A. (Hons) M.A. (Oxon)
Peacefully, in his 99th year, May 23, 2006, at the Aurora Retirement Centre, Aurora, Ontario. Hugh had an extraordinary and very full life. Born May 15, 1908 in Vegreville, Alberta, he earned his B.A. (Hons.) (language and literature) at the University of Alberta, Edmonton and was named a Rhodes Scholar in 1930. At his Oxford College, Merton, he read literature and political theory from 1930 to 1932, with post-graduate studies in 1933. After serving as a reporter at the Toronto Star and editor of the Star Weekly from 1934 to 1937, Hugh was appointed the first Director of Talks and Public Affairs at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, serving in Ottawa and Toronto from 1937 to 1943. Thereafter, he worked as Assistant to the President of a Central and South American airline out of New York until 1947. While in that position, he was recruited to assist 'Intrepid', Canada's spy master Sir William STEPHENSON, by reporting wartime activities of German agents in Central and South America. (In Hugh's library is a copy of A Man Called Intrepid by Stephenson dedicated 'To Hugh, my comrade in arms'.) From 1946 to 1948 he was a partner in a public relations firm in New York. Then he rejoined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in its 'Overseas ShortWave Broadcasting Service' in Montreal as its first Director for Latin America. He returned to Toronto in 1952 as the first Director of Public Relations for the United Way, serving until 1972. On retirement, he developed a diploma course in Public Relations at Humber College and taught there until 1983. Always a keen scholar of English literature, particularly Shakespeare, Hugh wrote Shakespeare, his Daughters and his Tempest, published in 1963. He also wrote Oxford Today and the Canadian Rhodes Scholarships, published in 1958. Hugh was the oldest surviving Canadian Rhodes Scholar. Unfortunately, his autobiography remains unfinished. While at Oxford Hugh played hockey for the Spengler (European) Cup-winning Oxford teams in 1931 and 1932. Recently, he was invited to Oxford for a reunion of Oxford hockey teams and presented with a replica of his playing jersey. Hugh outlived three wives (Florentine St. Clair SHERMAN, Patricia LeMoine FITZGERALD, daughter of the artist, and Marita LAFLÈCHE) and one companion, Mary-Lucile Getchell FRENCH, called 'Ceeley', with whom he was reunited after an interval of 62 years they had met while he was at Oxford and she was in Paris on her 'junior year abroad' from Smith College. Hugh is survived by his loving granddaughter Elizabeth St. Clair Morrison FIELD (Adam CHRISTIAN) of Buffalo, N.Y. daughter of his only child, Hugh., Peter St. Clair who died in 1998, and his nephew Hugh John BOLTON of Edmonton. Hugh's extensive library was donated in lots over many years to the University of Alberta and his Oxford College, with assistance from his long-time friend, book dealer David MASON of Toronto. His extensive Shakespearean studies collection was gratefully accepted in 2004 by doctoral candidates in the University of Toronto's English Department. His extensive memorabilia, including transcripts of wartime and other Canadian Broadcasting Corporation shows Hugh produced, has been gratefully accepted by Library and Archives Canada (finding aid No. 2283). For more on Hugh's career, his publications and honours received, see the entry in the 2006 Whose Who in Canada. A memorial service will be held at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Ave. W. (2 stoplights west of Yonge St.), Toronto on Sunday, May 28, 2006 at 11: 00 a.m., reception following there. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Rhodes Scholars Foundation in his name would be appreciated.

Shot teen had meek side
By Steve RENNIE, Staff Reporter with files from John DUNCANSON
Duane CHRISTIAN was no saint. But the 15-year-old boy shot by a Toronto police officer this week had a meek side, one that made him reluctant to go down into his aunt's basement because he was afraid of her cat.
It was this image that Delores RICKETTS, a cousin of CHRISTIAN's mother Simone WELLINGTON, couldn't get out of her mind yesterday as she spoke about the teen's death on Tuesday after he was spotted driving a stolen van.
Two officers patrolling the Scarborough Golf Club Rd. area saw the white Dodge Caravan just before 5 a.m.
The pair chased the van and tried to corner it in the parking lot of the Royaltown apartment building, at the corner of Lawrence Ave. E. and Scarborough Golf Club Rd.
"If you're afraid of a little cat, how can you get caught up doing all these wrong things?" said RICKETTS, describing how CHRISTIAN would sometimes stay at her Scarborough home when his mother couldn't handle him.
"When he misbehaved, I'd take him here for a while to see if I could make something out of him," RICKETTS said. "Their lifestyles were a bit different from mine."
She said CHRISTIAN would act up and show off when he was with his Friends, but was a different person when he was alone.
Since he loved cars, RICKETTS thought he would wind up working at a dealership one day.
RICKETTS said CHRISTIAN had been trying to contact his father, whom he had never met. She remembered watching him make calls during one of his visits and becoming angry when he couldn't reach him.
"He tried. He tried to be accepted," she said.
Despite his troubled past, relatives came to CHRISTIAN's defence yesterday saying police overreacted when they shot and killed the teen.
"They're not heroes, they're murderers," said Monique CRAIG, CHRISTIAN's 18-year-old cousin.
"They didn't have to shoot him. He didn't have no weapon."
The portrait that emerged from Friends and family is that of a troubled teen who had bounced from school to school.
He had several youth convictions, including robbery.
CRAIG said CHRISTIAN lived with a long-time friend for a time after his mother kicked him out of the house a few years ago. He had recently been living with his grandparents, Roy and Mori WELLINGTON, in the Royaltown apartment building.
The apartment superintendent said only that CHRISTIAN's grandparents lived in the building, not the teen or his mother.
Several neighbours of CHRISTIAN's grandparents said the family was quiet and mostly kept to themselves.
Sahra AHMED, who has lived in the building for eight years, said she didn't know the family well but never noticed anything out of the ordinary.
"I'd see them in the hall sometimes and they seemed like a nice family."
Special Investigations Unit investigators returned to the shooting scene yesterday to take more photos as they piece together what led to the fatal shooting.
More canvasses of area buildings are also being done as investigators try to find witnesses: to the shooting.
An autopsy has been performed on the 15-year-old, but the Special Investigations Unit is withholding that information until they talk further with the family of the dead youth, said Rose BLISS, the Special Investigations Unit spokesperson.
Police sources indicated the officer fired into the passenger side of the stolen white Dodge Caravan when the driver tried to run down his partner.
Under the law, officers must feel there is an imminent danger to themselves or others if they are discharge their weapon.
Funeral arrangements have yet to be made, the family said yesterday.
