Man charged with murder
Hamilton man charged, Ottawa man dies after incident in Collingwood
By Shawn GIILCK, Tuesday, April 18, 2006, Page A1
Collingwood - An Ottawa man is dead and a Hamilton man faces charges after police were called to an Elm Street home Sunday morning.
Collingwood Ontario Provincial Police and emergency response officials were called to the house at 7: 30 a.m.
The victim, identified as Stephen LONG, was taken to Collingwood's General and Marine Hospital and later transferred to Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto, where he died at 11: 19 a.m.
Collingwood Ontario Provincial Police arrested Christopher Michael BROUGHTON, 27, a short distance from the Elm Street house. The Hamilton resident faces charges of first-degree murder and attempted murder, Const. Tim GARLAND said Monday afternoon. He is scheduled to appear in Collingwood court April 25.
It was unknown Monday whether the men knew each other or what they were doing in Collingwood.
The cause of death was not being released pending the completion of a post-mortem Monday afternoon.
It's the second serious incident in Collingwood in a week. Last weekend an unidentified Wasaga Beach man was found beaten on Hurontario Street in the early morning hours. The Ontario Provincial Police has released little information in that case and no suspects have been identified.
Elm street remained cordoned off Monday morning as the investigation continued.
"It's certainly disturbing," said Dana DOYLE, who lives two houses away from the murder scene. "It's certainly sad that it happened, but (media) are trying to link it to the beating last weekend. I think it's out of proportion for Collingwood."
DOYLE said he heard people speaking loudly in the back yard of the house early Sunday morning when he took his dog out.
"I couldn't make out anything. They weren't arguing or anything like that."
DOYLE said he was unfamiliar with the people who owned the house.
"I don't know how long they've lived there. Maybe a year or two. I think there's a grandmother, a mother and two children who are in their 20s."
There was a party at the house Saturday night, but DOYLE said he didn't hear any noise from it.
"I don't know who was at the party."
The investigation has been turned over to the Ontario Provincial Police Criminal Investigations Branch under Det. Insp. Bernie MURPHY.

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). In lieu of flowers, donations to the Salvation Army would be appreciated by the family. Arrangements entrusted to the Turner and Porter Peel Chapel (905-279-7663).

DRISCOLL, Carol
We have lost a powerful life force. Carol DRISCOLL died on Sunday, March 19, having lived and loved life to the fullest - often times against tremendous odds. Carol shared life with an expansive circle of Friends to whom she was a constant joy and inspiration. Many of them were blessed to share in her last days and hours. Carol was a proud Irish Montrealer, the beloved daughter of Catherine (née DOYLE) and Gordon DRISCOLL and loving sister of Don, all of whom predeceased her. Carol is survived by her nephews Kevin (Deanne), Brian, and Mark. She started work at Bell Canada while still in her teens. There she worked for over 30 years, primarily as a valued and respected executive assistant to a number of senior executives. Carol built a highly successful career and forged many life-long Friendships during her career at Bell. She was, in many ways, the very heart of Stentor. Carol lived with rheumatoid arthritis from the age of three. This didn't prevent her from leading a full and rich life, travelling the world and engaging in many athletic and cultural pursuits. Nor did it stop her from pursuing higher education (B.A., Sir George Williams University) or contributing to the community through charitable work. She worked hard at living. She confronted her illness, the pain it caused and the demands for frequent surgery it imposed with a unique combination of courage, optimism, grace, and humour that amazed and inspired all those who knew and loved her.

'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.

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.

Lindalee TRACEY, Filmmaker And Writer (1957-2006)
Director with an uncanny ability to document her own life grew up poor. After becoming the central subject of Not a Love Story: a Film about Pornography, she began making her own films, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
A child of poverty, Lindalee TRACEY ran away from home as a young teenager, made a living as a stripper and exotic dancer in Montreal and forged an award-winning international career as a writer and documentary filmmaker. Multitalented and driven, almost as though she had a presentiment her time would be short, she had an uncanny ability to document her own life in print and in film. As a journalist, she had an innate talent to connect with people on a visceral level, a quality that made her work controversial and unforgettable.
When her young son, Liam, started asking questions about his dead grandfather, Ms. TRACEY decided to make a documentary about the father who had abandoned her as a baby. Abby, I hardly Knew Ya (1995) was a cinematic journey that took her through flop houses and long-term-care facilities, as she sought out her father's drinking buddies, and ended up in the cemetery beside his grave. Although she had intended to mouth conventional bromides about absent fathers while the cameras rolled, she found invective pouring out of her mouth in torrents of rage. Another filmmaker would have yelled cut, composed herself and started again. That might have been professional, but it wouldn't have been authentic and authentic was what Lindalee TRACEY was all about as a filmmaker, a writer and a person.
"She wanted people to read her work and to react to it. She had an incredible sense of adventure and a very clear idea in her own mind of right and wrong and what she should do to change things," says Lynn Cunningham, the magazine and book editor whom Ms. TRACEY credited with having "demanded the truth, however much I winced" as a writer.
"She had a great, raunchy, Rabelaisian sense of humour," says broadcaster Shelagh Rogers, host of Sounds Like Canada on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio. "And her laugh went on about two minutes longer than mine. And she was a vault. I told her things I told no one else. And those things went nowhere. She was everything you could want in a girlfriend. And her eyes were so beautiful. You just knew you were loved by looking into her eyes."
Those eyes were variously described as sparkling, alive and a mirror into her personality -- mischievous, determined, difficult and passionate. She was theatrical, a trait she used to advantage as a burlesque dancer, and irrepressibly interested in other people, especially the poor and disadvantaged. She would walk down the street and see a panhandler. Instead of passing by with her eyes averted or dropping a loonie from on high into a plastic cup, she would sit down on the curb and have a conversation and then, as likely as not, she would invite her new friend to join her for a meal at the nearest eatery.
Of Irish and Québécois ancestry, Lindalee TRACEY was the elder of two children of Abby TRACEY, an alcoholic who was in and out of jail, and Yolande TREMBLAY, a government clerk. Her father took off when she was a few months old, reappeared briefly and left again before her brother Paul was born a year later.
She grew up above a diner in the west end of Ottawa. "There were no trees, no parks, just the incessant rattle and dark belching of warehouses, factories and rag plants," she wrote in her first book, On the Edge: A Journey into the Heart of Canada (1993), which was nominated for the Gordon Montador Award. "I remember a sweet-unknowing before awareness and shame. The cheesy clumps of Kraft dinner and ketchup in the roof of my mouth. The gummy front-yard tar melting to my shoes in summer. The slow creaking of springs as my mother unfolded her hide-a-bed in the living room each safe night." Her father was "a deadbeat, a man I didn't know," while her mother "lived for years without her own room, without new clothes, with constant worry that lined her face early. She was poor so her children wouldn't be."
Ms. TRACEY went to D. Roy Kennedy Public School and Woodruff High School in Ottawa. She was a sickly child, and suffered from rheumatic fever in the days before universal health care. Although she was always proud of her mother's frugality and strength, Ms. TRACEY was a rebellious teenager who ran away from home when she was 15. She rode the rails until she was picked up in Kamloops, British Columbia, and sent home. In 1973, she quit school and moved to Montreal, where she began appearing in clubs as a stripper and an exotic dancer. She was 16.
"I just loved stripping; those were grown-up girls with real boobs, and I wanted to do that, too! It was the express lane into adulthood," she explained to Marc Glassman in an interview in the fall, 2006, issue of POV magazine. "We paraded our imperfections. We enjoyed them. The people who came to the clubs were often sorrowful folk; and we talked to them."
She wrote a book, Growing up Naked: My Years in Bump and Grind (1997), about her life as a peeler, working at a club called Eden under the stage name Fonda Peters. She was a runner-up in the Miss Nude Canada contest and was billed as Canada's Top Young Show Exotic on a tour of the United States, before going back to Montreal in 1967 to work in an upscale club called SexOHrama, and eventually organizing an annual fundraising striporama for the Montreal Children's Hospital called Tits for Tots. "Certainly the mid-seventies was the last good time to be a stripper," she wrote in her memoir, "just before television swallowed our imagination, before the corporate agenda made us homogeneous and hard-core pornography spread its numbing venom."
At first, she was a willing participant in a film Titled Not a Love Story: a Film about Pornography made in 1981 by Bonnie Sherr Klein and Dorothy Henaut for Studio D, the women's unit of the National Film Board. When she saw the finished film, she felt betrayed and exploited. "I'm reduced to porn queen, me, the softest thing in the film, the stripper who doesn't spread, immortalized as a cheap cliché and the 'articulate' voice of all the live sex girls," she wrote in Growing up Naked.
The publicity from Not A Love Story, which was variously banned and lauded, helped her to find on-air work on a Montreal television show. "I wasn't supposed to do anything but wear tight clothes, but I brought on people like [Henry] Morgentaler," she said in POV magazine. She began writing stories and columns for print, including articles about street people, notably a piece about homeless women -- largely unexplored territory in the early 1980s and worked in radio, hosting and co-producing Montreal Tonight on CJAD.
Ms. TRACEY "went down the road" to Toronto to work for As It Happens and Sunday Morning in the mid 1980s. "She was very street wise, incredibly brash and an amazing thinker -- very curious and very smart -- and she could connect with almost anybody. I could send her into the most improbable places and she would find a way to get them to open up and bring back great tape," said Norm BOLEN, then the executive producer of Sunday Morning and now an executive vice-president at Alliance Atlantis. "She genuinely cared about what made other people tick and she had no respect for conventional definitions." Ms. TRACEY was also a "fabulous writer," who could fix other producer's script problems. "She was a real word master." At the same time, she had no deference for authority or experience, which could irritate her colleagues even as they were "dazzled" by her talent.
She met her husband, filmmaker Peter RAYMONT, in a documentary workshop at the old Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio building on Jarvis Street in 1986. "She was very bright and a quick study and she came from a different world," Mr. RAYMONT said. They connected romantically at a staff party at Mr. BOLEN's house. Like Ms. TRACEY, he was born in Ottawa but on the "other side of the tracks." His father, a colonel in the Canadian army who was awarded the M.B.E. for his war service, was a senior staff officer and historian for the Department of National Defence. Together, they shared a deep commitment to social justice, human rights and making the world a better place, but her approach, at least initially, was much more hands-on.
When Mr. RAYMONT travelled to Nicaragua to make The World is Watching in 1987, Ms. TRACEY went with him. They were married in Ottawa in 1989 and their son, Liam TRACEY- RAYMONT, was born the following year. "We had a very good relationship," said Mr. RAYMONT. "It was often tempestuous and sparky, but you don't want to marry yourself. It is really good to get together with people from different worlds and you complement and help each other."
She joined him as a partner in White Pine Pictures, an independent film, video and television production company in 1993. Its credits include Shake Hands With the Devil: The Journey of Roméo Dallaire and A Scattering of Seeds: The Creation of Canada, for which Ms. TRACEY also wrote the book.
An unregenerate multitasker, Ms. TRACEY, who had been writing poetry since her days as a stripper in Montreal, was also penning magazine articles, mainly for Lynn CUNNINGHAM, then a senior editor at Toronto Life, while she was working on films with Mr. RAYMONT. "She was cold-calling editors and I picked up the phone," Ms. CUNNINGHAM remembers. "She was an amazing bundle of energy and charm and outrageous wit." Her story proposals were "the Lindalee trademark" of a writer who scorned celebrity and felt passionately about the forgotten and marginalized people in society.
One of her pieces for Toronto Life was "The Uncounted Canadians" about the thousands of illegal migrants who work in our fields and kitchens, hotels and restaurants. It won a couple of journalism awards and went into production this week as a pilot for a television series. Her approach, working at a story from the inside -- from the perspective of a participant, rather than from the viewpoint of a detached "objective" observer -- is the signature of Ms. TRACEY's work as a journalist in print and on film. "Being moral, being decent, being honourable" whether "you are in front or behind the camera," were lessons, Ms. TRACEY said, that she had derived from her experience with Not a Love Story. Shelagh Rogers recognized Ms. TRACEY as "a force" when she interviewed her in 1993 and was immediately attracted to her energy and fearlessness as a storyteller. She was never afraid of being a do-gooder or too-small "l" liberal in her views, or of venting her outrage about the many people "who didn't have a voice and who weren't reflected in the national media." Ms. Rogers says she loved Ms. TRACEY's compassion, her "personal power" and her ability to take charge and to inspire change in people.
Although she was a very active partner in White Pine Pictures, Ms. TRACEY formed Magnolia Movies as a "boutique production company" in 2003. She did it partly because she wanted her own identity, partly because she wanted to make films that either didn't fit the profile of White Pine, or came at similar subjects from a different slant. Her first film for Magnolia was An Anatomy of Burlesque, which Globe television critic John DOYLE deemed "smart and entertaining" and a "cheerfully informative jaunt through the history of burlesque funny business." Bhopal: The Search for Justice, a scathing indictment of what happened after the disaster at the Union Carbide plant in Bhopal, India, on December 2, 1984, aired on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation the following year.
About five years ago, Ms. TRACEY was diagnosed with HER-2 Neu positive breast cancer, a very aggressive form of the disease. She was 44. After a mastectomy and chemotherapy, "it looked as though it had disappeared" for about two years, Mr. RAYMONT said. "Then it came back in the same part of her body and it was in her bones, her lungs and her liver." She sought out an alternative cure in Tijuana, Mexico, in the late fall of 2004 and returned looking devastated. Desperately ill with metastatic cancer, she was eligible to receive Herceptin as a last-hope treatment. "It gave her another nine months, or a year, of life," her husband said of what seemed a remarkable recovery. During that time, she continued her frenetic work schedule, and found time to lobby Ontario Health Minister George Smitherman to make Herceptin available as well to non-metastatic Her-2 breast-cancer patients.
In January of 2006, the cancer invaded her brain. Late in September, her family took her to the palliative care unit at Princess Margaret Hospital, expecting she would last two or three days. In the end, she defied death for almost a month, as she had always confounded authority -- grabbing as much life as she could and asking, on one occasion, for her loved ones to sing Gordon Lightfoot songs around her bed.
Lindalee TRACEY was born in Ottawa on May 14, 1957. She died of metastasized breast cancer in Toronto yesterday. She was 49. She is survived by her husband, Peter RAYMONT, their son, Liam, her mother, Yolande, her brother, Paul, and her extended family.

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).
