Bruce DUNCAN, Conservationist (1946-2006)
General manager of the Hamilton Conservation Authority haunted Ontario's Niagara escarpment and was a prolific contributor to books and articles on hawks and eagles
By Ron CSILLAG,
Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- Not even his own wedding could interfere with Bruce Duncan's love of birds and nature. His 1992 marriage to fellow hawk bander Janet SNAITH took place at Hawk Cliff, a prime hawk-watching bluff overlooking Lake Erie, near Port Stanley, Ontario As Peter WHELAN, the Globe's late birder columnist duly noted at the time, the bride and groom wore binoculars. So did the guests and minister, who had been forewarned the ceremony might be interrupted to observe any interesting birds of prey.
Fifteen minutes before the nuptials, a peregrine falcon portentously circled overhead, but no hawk of note interrupted the "I do's." The next morning, Mr. DUNCAN's new wife helped him capture the first peregrine falcon in his 16 years of banding.
Among Canada's leading naturalists and experts on raptors, or birds of prey, Mr. DUNCAN was a passionate conservationist and outdoorsman who loved to teach schoolchildren in and around Hamilton about the plant and animal life in their surroundings. He was a prolific contributor to books and scholarly articles on eagles, hawks and natural history in Ontario.
Mr. DUNCAN was general manager and chief administrative officer of the Hamilton Conservation Authority. "Bruce was in charge of a $15-million organization and would not carry a cell phone," noted Chris FIRTH- EAGLAND, chairman of the authority. "He so trusted and respected his staff that he wanted them to deal with the issues. He was very hardworking and dedicated and was always pursuing better environmental approaches to doing business, remediating properties and acquiring new lands to protect them."
Normally a quiet, self-effacing man, Mr. DUNCAN had recently been flying high. On October 23, Ontario gifted to the conservation authority a 180-acre parcel of land in upper Stoney Creek, west of Hamilton, called the Eramosa Karst (a geological formation where surface water erodes soft limestone and creates underground streams and caverns). It is considered an environmentally significant property; the provincial Ministry of Natural Resources designated the lands an area of natural and scientific interest in 2003.
Two weeks later, a beaming Mr. DUNCAN emceed the ceremony at which Heritage Green Community Trust announced a $1.5-million donation, which he had negotiated, to the Hamilton Conservation Foundation for the development of the karst lands as the city's newest conservation area.
"Elation couldn't describe how he had been feeling in the last couple of weeks for bringing those two things together," Mr. FIRTH- EAGLAND said. "There's no higher end for us than to acquire new land and open it up for recreation, education and different functions."
Mr. DUNCAN joined the authority in 1988 to run its outdoor education program. He would take schoolchildren on nature hikes through the Dundas Valley. In 1992, he became the Hamilton Conservation Authority's staff ecologist, and a decade later, was named director of watershed planning and engineering, a post in which he was responsible for the flood warning and response system. He became the authority's general manager in January of 2004, and embarked on an ambitious five-year strategic plan.
The authority will mark its 50th anniversary in 2008, and the karst acquisition and donation were fine advance centrepieces. "You can image the satisfaction that our organization felt -- that he felt -- [at] already having this 50th anniversary birthday present all wrapped up, all secured, all ready," Mr. FIRTH- EAGLAND said.
Born in post-war England to a British mother and Scottish-born member of the Canadian army's medical corps, Mr. DUNCAN grew up in Orillia, Ontario He graduated with a psychology degree from Wilfred Laurier University and spent the next three years as a guide at the Quetico Provincial Park west of Thunder Bay, providing instruction in canoeing, trekking and wilderness lore.
The experience was life-changing. He returned to the University of Waterloo to study biology and then worked for 11 years for the Grand River Conservation Authority as a resource interpreter at the Taquanyah Nature Centre near Cayuga, where he established himself as a raptor expert. He supervised the introduction of bald eagles to southern Ontario, and helped introduce peregrine falcons in the Hamilton area.
But it was on hawks Mr. DUNCAN was considered an expert. "He was a self-confessed hawk nut," said Debbie DUNCAN, his sister-in-law. "He had a life-long passion for sharing knowledge and enthusiasm for nature. He was always leading hikes and workshops."
Mr. DUNCAN served as president of both the 500-member Hamilton Naturalist Club and the Ontario Bird Banding Association. He personally banded the legs of thousands of predatory birds to track their migration habits, enduring little more than the usual talon stabs and scratches. He named one of "his" bald eagles Gustav Mahler, for his favourite composer. His friend and co-birder of 30 years, Bob CURRY, recalls that Mr. DUNCAN came close to tears when he discovered that Gustav had been shot and killed over Lac-Saint-Jean, Quebec
"He was a gentleman and a gentle man," Mr. CURRY recalled. "He never raised his voice, but managed to influence people."
In 1991, Mr. DUNCAN founded the Niagara Peninsula Hawk Watch program, which monitors the migration of hawks, eagles, falcons and vultures over the Niagara Escarpment.
Nicknamed "the Fox" for his red hair, Mr. DUNCAN was a First World War buff who read avidly. "He consumed everything," said his wife, Janet. "If something caught his interest, he wasn't satisfied until he'd read a dozen books on the subject."
He indulged his Scottish heritage once a year when the family hosted a Robbie Burns night at their house (once the home of Alexander Graham Bell.) Mr. DUNCAN would don a kilt and dress a mean haggis. In the warm weather, when not out trekking and communing, he would sit in a lawn chair, imported beer in one hand and requisite binoculars in the other. In the winter, he delighted neighbours by building snowmen and snowdogs.
There were frequent family outings with Janet and two young children. "We were always going somewhere," Janet said, "somewhere different, and experiencing new things."
Mr. DUNCAN received many honours for his work, including Hamilton's Environmentalist of the Year Award in 1992, the Canada 125 Award for Environmental Service to the Community, and a 1997 accolade from the Hawk Migration Association of North America.
As for the stereotypical image of Hamilton as a gritty steel town with little regard for conservation or the environment, Mr. DUNCAN extolled the region as having more waterfalls than any community in North America, and more escarpment lands and green space per capita than any other Canadian city -- and he wanted to keep it that way, said Mr. FIRTH- EAGLAND. " Bruce had a different feeling about Hamilton. He felt that Hamilton was blessed."
And as the Hamilton Spectator noted last week, the community has lost not only a friend, but a teacher whose name is "memorialized in millions of tonnes of uncarved stone -- and grass, woods, streams and caves."
Bruce William DUNCAN was born on January 13, 1946, in Woking, Surrey, England. He died in hospital in Brantford on November 11, 2006, after suffering injuries in a car accident near his home in Paris, Ontario The vehicle he was driving had been struck head-on by a car that had crossed the centre line. The other diver was declared dead at the scene. He was 60. He leaves his wife, Janet; two children, Katie, 10 and James, 13; one brother, Jim, and a sister, Margaret DEMUNNIK. A public celebration of his life will be held at Bay Gardens Funeral and Memorial Centre, 1010 Botanical Dr., Burlington, Ontario on Saturday, November 25, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

After discharge, Main attended Osgoode Law School and was called to the Ontario Bar in 1953 and returned to Canadian National Railway to practise transportation law. Main and his family were transferred around the country as his responsibilities grew, eventually moving to Montreal in 1968 where he was promoted to Vice President Law, then Executive Vice President until he left in 1978 for an appointment to the Ontario Highway Transport Board in Toronto where he served for six years before retiring. Main was later awarded his Q.C. in recognition of his distinguished career in law. Following retirement Main travelled with Frances and volunteered in his community and as recently as early January of 2006 was still the well loved piano player at the Mississauga Long Term Care Facility for other seniors.

Big band leader boosted spirits in tough times
By Matthew CHUNG, Staff Reporter
Stan PATTON's poor eyesight kept him home during World War 2.
So while other young Canadians were picking up their guns and fighting in Europe, Patton picked up his tenor saxophone and helped those who were here fight their worries.
They came to the dance halls -- decked out in gowns and tuxedos to dance away their fears while Stan PATTON and his Orchestra was swinging on the bandstand.
PATTON died October 20 in a Richmond Hill hospital at the age of 91. But even in his last days, he was boosting the morale of his daughter, Holly BRIESMASTER, 58, and son, Brooke PATTON, 57, with flamboyant tales of his time as a big band leader.
"Dad was definitely a star. And if you wanted to be affirmed of that, all you had to do was ask him because he would certainly tell you," his son said.
PATTON's career spanned more than three decades and saw him play from coast to coast.
A clarinet and tenor sax player, he was one of a group of Canadian big band-era musicians whose bands grew in popularity in spite of, or perhaps due to, the Depression and, later, the war.
He played Toronto's Royal York Hotel and Casa Loma, the Lakeview Casino in Grand Bend and the Brant Inn in Burlington.
PATTON also performed on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio's Sweet and Low, and wrote music and comedy for other Canadian Broadcasting Corporation programs, such as Happy Gang and Newsical.
With his death, few musicians remain from that swing era.
"We're all dying," said Murray GINSBERG, 84, a retired trombonist, and former member of the Royal Canadian Army Show and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. "I knew Stan for years. He always had a good band."
PATTON was born to Irish parents in 1915 in St. Boniface, Manitoba, the youngest of nine children. He grew up in Vancouver, where he became the leader of a band in 1935.
"The nickname my dad had was 'Jazz,'" his daughter said. "His orchestra called him that. It gives you a sense of the sparkling quality about Stan PATTON."
In his unpublished memoirs, typed out in 1997, he recalls chatting on a wet morning in 1940 with his friend, Mart KENNEY, who was known as Canada's Big Band King.
PATTON wrote, "Mart, if it rains one more damn day (in Vancouver,) I'm gonna pack my sax, clarinet and tux, then I'm leaving this town forever."
KENNEY asked PATTON to join his legendary band, Mart KENNEY and his Western Gentlemen, as they relocated to Toronto. PATTON went home and said, "Mom, I'm going to Toronto with Mart KENNEY."
With KENNEY, PATTON went on a national tour. But the late nights caught up with him in the Winnipeg Arena.
"While the muted brass were playing the first chorus of 'Stardust,' I fell asleep, and when the sax section stood up to play the second chorus, (I) sat slumped down on (my) chair in dreamland," PATTON wrote.
He didn't rest long. By 1941, he had started his own orchestra in Toronto. Two years later, PATTON married Patricia Jean DUNCAN. He remarried in 1975 following Patricia's death in 1973.
When the age of the big band faded, PATTON got into real estate and made more money in his first week than he had earned in a month with the band.
"He really had a magnetic personality and he transferred his on-stage persona into being a good salesman," his son said.
But PATTON had one last summer as "Jazz" when, in 1962, he auditioned and was booked into the Imperial Room at the Royal York Hotel.
And he never really stopped putting on a show.
"Nobody was ever with my dad that they didn't laugh. Ever," Brooke said. "Sometimes you were laughing at the same band stories and jokes you had heard a hundred times."
In addition to his children, PATTON leaves a granddaughter. His family plans to mark his life on January 29, 2007, on what would have been his 92nd birthday.
