FRASER, Jean
In loving memory of a dear wife, mother and grandmother Jean.
God's Garden
God's Garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best
He knew you were suffering
He knew you were in pain
He knew that you would never
Get well on this earth again
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb
So he closed your weary eyelids
And whispered, "Peace be Thine"
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn't go alone
For a part of us went, with you
The day God called you home.
- Sadly missed by Kelvin and family

'Real team player' lived dream as officer
Ken DEANE is recalled as a 'top, top cop,' despite his public persona.
By Joe MATYAS and April KEMICK, Free Press Reporters, Mon., February Long before Ken DEANE became infamous as the Ontario Provincial Police sniper who fatally shot Dudley GEORGE at Ipperwash, he was a London teen who wanted to be a police officer.
He was a bright student and energetic athlete who emerged as a leader in his teens, high school friend Tim HUFF once told The Free Press.
DEANE was in Grade 12 at South secondary school when he decided he wanted to get into law enforcement, said HUFF, adding he pounded a beat for the London police force in the 1980s after taking law and security at Fanshawe College.
A few years later, DEANE applied to the Ontario Provincial Police tactics and rescue unit and was accepted, eventually becoming part of an explosives disposal team.
But for people like HUFF, DEANE was a guy who remained in touch with old Friends.
There were annual weekends with the guys in cottage country, where DEANE would be a highlight with stories about police work.
Family and Friends will miss him deeply, brother-in-law Grant TEEPLE of Aylmer said yesterday in reaction to DEANE's sudden death in a highway crash on Saturday.
DEANE's death was a shock, he said, adding family and Friends had a chance to enjoy his company at a gathering "up north" a few days ago.
DEANE wasn't the guy portrayed in the media, TEEPLE said. TEEPLE wouldn't say what DEANE did after he left the Ontario Provincial Police.
DEANE's public persona is connected to the shooting of GEORGE at Ipperwash on September 6, 1995, his subsequent court conviction for criminal negligence causing death in 1997 and his dismissal from the Ontario Provincial Police for discreditable police conduct in 2002.
London lawyer Norm PEEL, who knew DEANE for years before representing him in his criminal trial, said yesterday he was a model police officer whose reputation was wrongly tarnished.
"I still hold my strongest view that he was just a top, top cop," PEEL said. "I have nothing but absolute respect for him. Always will."
DEANE had a reputation among other officers for being a "real team player," PEEL said. "His whole story of his life was about helping people. He had a model background."
During his trial, DEANE testified that he saw muzzle flashes the light of gunfire -- come from some bushes during a confusing skirmish.
He said he shot GEORGE after he stepped out of the bushes with a gun.
In convicting DEANE on April 27, 1997, Judge Hugh FRASER rejected his testimony and those of other police officers as fabricated.
The verdict surprised members of the GEORGE family.
But their feelings that justice had been done were dashed on July 3, 1997, when FRASER gave DEANE a conditional sentence of two years less a day with 180 hours of community service.
Cries of "murderer, murderer" filled the courtroom after the sentence as members of the GEORGE family wept.

Key Ipperwash witness killed in highway crash
By Kate HARRIES, Page A2
One of the most eagerly anticipated witnesses: at the Ipperwash inquiry -- Ken DEANE, the police sergeant who shot aboriginal activist Dudley GEORGE -- has been killed in a traffic accident.
Mr. DEANE died early Saturday afternoon in a winter storm pile-up on Highway 401 near Prescott, in Eastern Ontario. A passenger, a 38-year-old man from Albuquerque, N.M., was extricated by the local fire department and was in stable condition at Brockville General Hospital.
Mr. DEANE, 45, of Sudbury, was declared dead at the scene after his Ford Explorer was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer unit at around 1: 15. News of his death came as a shock to participants at the Ipperwash inquiry, where Mr. DEANE's testimony in the next few weeks was eagerly anticipated.
"Dudley's family and I were stunned by the news," said lawyer Murray KLIPPENSTEIN, who acts for the George estate.
Then a sergeant, Mr. DEANE was one of a group of Ontario Provincial Police tactical rescue unit snipers who provided cover when the riot squad was deployed against a group of unarmed aboriginals who had occupied Ipperwash Provincial Park. Mr. GEORGE was shot in the ensuing confrontation on the night of September 6, 1995.
Mr. DEANE testified at his trial in 1997 that he saw muzzle flashes, and then a man with a gun who took aim at police. But an officer who was standing near him testified that he saw no flashes and the man who was shot was holding a stick.
In finding Mr. DEANE guilty, Mr. Justice Hugh FRASER rejected the notion that Mr. DEANE had an "honest but mistaken belief" and found that Mr. GEORGE was unarmed when he was killed. He said Mr. DEANE had concocted his evidence "in an ill-fated attempt to disguise the fact that an unarmed man had been shot."
Mr. DEANE was convicted of criminal negligence causing death and sentenced to serve two years less a day in the community, as well as 180 days of community service and no house arrest. He unsuccessfully appealed the conviction to the Supreme Court of Canada. He was ordered to resign from the force in January, 2002, after pleading guilty four months earlier to a charge of discreditable conduct under the Police Services Act.
Mr. KLIPPENSTEIN said it's not clear what Mr. DEANE's answers would have been at the inquiry. "The evidence that the inquiry has brought out has changed the picture dramatically… it's extremely questionable that the tactical rescue unit team should have been at the park at all."
But the lawyer said that the loss of Mr. DEANE's evidence will not affect the inquiry's ability to get at the truth of what happened.
Commission counsel Susan VELLA agreed. The inquiry will still have the benefit of the sworn evidence Mr. DEANE gave at the criminal trial, she said yesterday.
Mr. DEANE, who was married with no children, is the third officer involved in the Ipperwash standoff to have been killed in a motor vehicle accident.
Inspector Bill LINTON, who was the incident commander on the night police marched on the park, died in a car crash in 2000. Sergeant Margaret EVE, who attempted to negotiate with the occupiers, died on duty in 2000 on Highway 401, hit by a bank-robbery suspect.

Kenneth DEANE, Officer And Security Expert (1960-2006)
Former Ontario Provincial Police officer enjoyed a promising career in a paramilitary squad until he shot and killed native protester Dudley GEORGE in 1995. He left the force in 2002 and died in a traffic accident on Saturday
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- Kenneth DEANE's life was changed -- some would say ruined -- by an incident that's now known as Ipperwash. On September 6, 1995, he shot and killed Anthony (Dudley) GEORGE at Ontario's Ipperwash Provincial Park during what was Canada's most important Indian protest since Quebec's Oka crisis of 1990.
Until that night, Mr. DEANE of the Ontario Provincial Police had an exemplary record, one that had helped smooth his way into the exclusive ranks of the Ontario Provincial Police's tactical rescue unit. As acting sergeant, he was leading a highly trained, four-man team of marksmen on the night he shot Mr. GEORGE.
"The whole sequence took place in 20, 30, 35 seconds," Mr. DEANE said at his trial in July of 1997. He was convicted of criminal negligence causing death. In his 2001 book, One Dead Indian, Toronto Star reporter Peter EDWARDS recounted the Ontario Provincial Police officer's description of what led up to the shooting. Mr. DEANE said he saw flashes of light coming from the barrel of a weapon inside a school bus that protesters were using to barge into an Ontario Provincial Police riot squad.
"It was an attempt to shoot a police officer," he told the court. However, he chose not to open fire because of the many officers who were in the way. "I saw a distinct muzzle flash originate from the interior of the bus."
The book went on to describe the actual firing of the weapon and Mr. DEANE's testimony that Mr. GEORGE was armed and had presented a threat. "I observed him shoulder a rifle and in a half-crouched position, scanned [the rifle] over our position." Mr. DEANE said he fired three shots from his highly accurate, Heckler and Koch sub-machine gun "as quick as I could."
"He [Mr. GEORGE] immediately went down on one knee and immediately got back up."
Still on the road, Mr. GEORGE looked to his right and left and walked a few steps, Mr. DEANE testified. He then did something rather odd for someone who was mortally wounded, with a broken collar bone, cracked ribs and a punctured lung, Mr. DEANE said. He testified that Mr. GEORGE raised his arm and threw the rifle into a grass-covered field, leaving himself unarmed and exposed to police fire.
Although Mr. DEANE had provided a detailed description of the rifle, another tactical rescue unit officer who was just metres away during the incident testified that he had observed Mr. GEORGE holding "a pole or stick." The officer also said that the only muzzle flashes he saw had come from his own gun. Hundreds of other shots were fired that night, all by the police, and the Ontario Provincial Police has since arrived at the view that the protesters were not armed.
For his part, Mr. DEANE fired a total of seven shots. Four had been aimed at other protesters and three at Mr. GEORGE. One bullet missed, one struck him in the lower leg, and the last found his torso.
Though Mr. DEANE spoke in a calm and self-assured manner, the judge at his trial did not believe him. Mr. Justice Hugh FRASER as much as called him a liar and ruled that Mr. GEORGE had been unarmed. He rejected the notion that Mr. DEANE had an "honest but mistaken belief" and found that Mr. GEORGE did not have a weapon when he was killed. He said Mr. DEANE had concocted his evidence "in an ill-fated attempt to disguise the fact that an unarmed man had been shot."
Judge FRASER, who also ruled that some other police officers had falsified evidence to support Mr. DEANE, found him guilty and sentenced him to a conditional sentence of two years less a day, plus 180 days of community service but no house arrest.
Mr. DEANE appealed the conviction to the Supreme Court of Canada. In February, 2000, the court ruled there were no grounds for a new trial. He did win a small victory, however. The Supreme Court denied an appeal by Crown prosecutors who had sought jail time instead of the conditional sentence.
"I still believe Ken DEANE was an honest police office who was hard done by by the justice system," lawyer Norman PEEL, who had represented Mr. DEANE at the trial, said yesterday. "He was misjudged as being cold and withdrawn when, in fact, he was just quiet." After the conviction, Mr. DEANE continued in the Ontario Provincial Police. Among other things, he was a bomb-disposal expert and a specialist in fighting biker gangs and terrorists. His fellow officers came to his defence, believing he had been victimized.
"He was an asset to the Ontario Provincial Police," said Inspector Robert BRUCE, who at that time believed Mr. DEANE "should remain in the position that he's in."
But Ipperwash continued to haunt Mr. DEANE.
"I sincerely apologize to the family and Friends of Dudley GEORGE and to his community for causing the terrible loss that they have been forced to endure," he said at a discipline hearing in September of 2001. For all that, he always maintained he had done nothing wrong the night Mr. GEORGE was shot and he fought to stay on the force.
It was a battle he lost. In October, 2001, he pleaded to a charge of discreditable conduct under the Police Services Act. Four months later, an inquiry by police adjudicator Loyall CANN forced him to resign. Ms. CANN, a former deputy chief of the Toronto police force, said the shooting of Mr. GEORGE had resulted in "the most serious conviction" ever recorded against an Ontario Provincial Police officer.
"What could possibly be more shocking to society than to have a sworn, fully trained and experienced police officer, while on duty, in full uniform [and] using a police-issued firearm, kill an unarmed citizen," said Ms. CANN.
She ordered him to resign or be fired. He quit the next day and later found a job working in security at an Ontario Hydro nuclear station. More recently, he was Canadian sales manager for Canadian Allen-Vanguard Response Systems, a publicly traded company that provides state-of-the-art anti-terrorist equipment and systems.
Kenneth DEANE grew up in London, Ontario, the son of the late Robert DEANE and Katherine DEANE. One of six children, he had long dreamed of being a policeman. After leaving high school, he studied law and security at Fanshawe College and then joined the London police force. He was next accepted by the Ontario Provincial Police and quickly became involved with the tactical rescue unit, the special squad deployed in hostage-taking situations and in emergencies.
At his trial, a fellow officers described the patience Mr. DEANE had displayed during a hostage situation in Dryden, Ontario, when a man with a rifle threatened two women. The incident ended without violence. "He does not react emotionally, said Staff Sergeant Brian DEEVY, also a member of the tactical rescue unit. "I have never seen him lose control."
Mr. DEANE had also served with Ontario Provincial Police officers sent to help deal with the Oka crisis, and in 1991 had attended an incident at Grassy Narrows in Northern Ontario when an Ontario Provincial Police officer was shot dead.
The killing of Mr. GEORGE caused an outcry against the tactics and actions of the Ontario Provincial Police and the government of Ontario. It triggered the Ipperwash inquiry that has been sitting since July of 2004 under Mr. Justice Sidney LINDEN. Mr. DEANE was scheduled to appear at the hearing next month and his testimony was keenly anticipated.
In the type of coincidence that feeds conspiracy theorists, Mr. DEANE is the third Ontario Provincial Police officer involved in the Dudley GEORGE shooting to be killed in a traffic accident. Sgt. Margaret EVE, who tried to negotiate with the natives at Ipperwash before the shooting, died in a crash involving a transport truck on Highway 401 near Chatham, Ontario Inspector Dale LINTON, the commander who gave the orders to Mr. DEANE's team, was killed in a single-vehicle accident near Smith's Falls in October of Mr. DEANE was killed in a traffic accident on Highway 401 near Prescott in Eastern Ontario. Snow squalls had caused vehicles to slow or come to a halt and his Ford Explorer clipped a tractor trailer that was blocking the road. Before he could extricate his vehicle, a second highway truck travelling behind him was unable to stop and the sport utility vehicle was crushed.
Kenneth DEANE was born in October of 1960. He died on February 25, 2006. He was 45. He leaves his wife, Lucie SIROIS. Also an Ontario Provincial Police officer, she was injured some years ago while investigating a traffic accident. Additionally, he leaves his brother Bill and sisters Barbara, Nancy, Sue and Judy. A funeral is set for 11 a.m. tomorrow in Sudbury, Ontario

FRASER, Sarah Ida " Terry" (née SERRITT)
By Margot FRASER, Page A16
Wife, mother, teacher. Born November 26, 1909, in Perth County, Ontario Died September 26, 2005, of natural causes, in Fonthill, Ontario, aged 95.
A grand lady, elegant and dignified was how her Victorian Order of Nurses nurse, a visitor for many years described Terry. She was born on her grandparents' farm to Pearl and Charles SERRITT. They instilled in her the determination to always do things right.
Her teaching career began in Toronto where a teacher had to either get married or pass on before a new hiring was done. Before her interview, she thought her name was called. They were expecting to interview someone else, but she got the job! She taught home economics at Williamson Road and Dewson Street schools.
During the Second World War, she was burglarized while in the bathtub. Feeling a movement of air passing the bathroom door it wasn't until she was finished and saw muddy footprints on the kitchen floor that she realized what had occurred. Not knowing if the burglar was still there and having to pass through the living room to get to the apartment door, I dare say that she moved fast.
She married the love of her life, Henry FRASER, a business manager and accountant, in 1943. They lived in Ottawa, Montreal and Welland, Ontario, before moving to Fonthill in 1954. After his sudden passing in 1963, she returned to teaching to support herself and two daughters, sending them to university and helping launch their professional careers.
Students thrived under her direction, as she loved teaching language arts: writing and reading. She had a big impact on many students and she always expected them to do their best. She was often heard saying: It does not matter whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game.
Terry was a keen bridge player, always able to decipher and figure out the best moves to increase her score. After retiring, Terry fostered her keen intellect, nurturing her mind by being an eager reader of fiction, non-fiction, and periodicals. She was a daily reader of The Globe and Mail for more than 40 years, reading, cover to cover, the many articles of interest. Richard Needham's column was a favourite. With encouragement, she submitted answers to his contests, being in the winner's circle and having her name in his column three times. She read, she questioned, thought about what was read, came to her own conclusions and could carry on a discussion with anyone.
Until her eyesight became too poor for her to read, she was never seen in mornings without the paper. Many hours were spent doing The Globe crosswords, rarely asking for help. Peter Gzowski was a favourite on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio; she thrived on his intellectual interviews and sense of humour.
On her first visit with her Parkinson's specialist in 1992, when asked about current happenings, she looked at him in surprise and said: Why, the Blue Jays just won the World Series! While often in pain from osteoporosis and unable, especially near then end of her life, to continue doing things she loved, she never complained.
Through failing health, she remained cheerful, always having a smile and twinkle in her eye. When asked how she was, she would reply, "Not too bad." She was strong, saying, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going." She showed all who knew her how to live life, coping with what you are given with grace and dignity.
She took pride in her appearance, always having her hair and nails done, surprising visitors who were not expecting a lady of 95 to have manicured nails! Even though she thought of herself as ordinary, she was an extraordinary woman, passing on strength, courage and a will do succeed to all who knew her.
Margot FRASER is Terry's youngest daughter.

FRASER, Walter Scott
By Dick PROCTOR, Page A18
Sports fan, golfer, store owner, veteran, husband, father. Born September 23, 1919, in Picton, Ontario Died September 30, 2005, of natural causes, in Picton, aged 86.
Aside from its legendary mayor, H.J. McFARLAND, Walt FRASER -- the witty, cigar-smoking, sports fanatic and owner of Walt's Men's Wear -- was undoubtedly the most popular personality in Picton, Ontario in the 1950s, '60s and '70s.
Walt's store was the in-spot in Picton for men -- not necessarily for the latest in fashion apparel -- but for the latest in sporting news, gossip, pranks played and pranks planned. Soldiers from the nearby army base, teenagers, farmers and commercial fishermen all beat a path to Walt's. They invariably left with their new duds and a smile, courtesy of Walt's ready wit.
He briefly attended boarding school at Albert College, Belleville, Ontario, but when caught returning after hours via the bed sheets he'd used earlier to leave his room, Walt and the college parted company. He served in the navy during the Second World War, stationed in Ottawa and Halifax. But, Picton was always home. After his parents sold their department store, Walt opened his men's wear shop on the town's Main Street.
Walt followed all the Picton sports teams and loved nothing more than organizing a carload of pals for an away game, driving several hours, chiding the hometown fans and heckling the referee. He frequently ensured there was a post-game steak dinner for the Picton players, usually paying a good portion of the tab himself. Alcohol factored in Walt's life but, he overcame it. When stopped by a policeman two years ago and asked if he'd had anything to drink, Walt replied: "I haven't had a drink in 25 years. Can you say the same thing, officer?"
If he'd had any say in the matter, Walt wouldn't have chosen to die on the eve of the baseball playoffs, with football in full swing, the National Hockey League regular season about to open and all the family coming for Thanksgiving. While Walt closely followed the fortunes of Ottawa's football team, and hockey's Toronto Maple Leafs, golf and baseball were his true sporting loves. He was convinced of this: Had Blue Jays' (then) manager Cito Gaston only known when to remove his starting pitchers, the team would have won five World Series, instead of two.
In the 1960s, Walt sponsored and managed a good men's fastball team made up of local players. The home town fans loved it when, after his pitching ace Roger Chapman whistled two strikes past Bobby Hull, Walt called time and offered the Chicago Black Hawks star a paddle to help him catch up to the next pitch.
At the funeral, Walt's son-in-law Gavin recounted how, after seven years of dating Walt's daughter Erin, he asked Walt for her hand in marriage. Walt replied: "You've had everything else, you may as well have her hand."
Walt lived for golf. He joined the Picton Golf Club in 1934 and was an active member for more than 70 years.
The first on the course every spring, he also organized the diehard tournaments in December. Everybody wanted to be part of Walt's foursome, not only because he was a first-rate golfer, but because of his razor-sharp wit.
"Did you hear what Walt said today?" would ricochet around the course.
He was too ill to play in 2005. His wife Sue and children Scott, Erin, Frith and Rod (and four grandchildren) made certain Walt's ashes were well and carefully sprinkled around the Picton course.
With his ever-present cigar and blue eyes always hinting at a practical joke or a snappy one-liner, Walt FRASER was a true character -- someone who made his town a livelier, happier community.
Dick PROCTOR is a friend of Walt FRASER.

He represented Canada on the Canadian Olympic Association, the International Amateur Athletic Association and served as President of the Canadian Track and Field Association. Although Ian excelled in may sports, his lifetime passion was track and field.

Arnold EDINBOROUGH: Editor, Arts Advocate (1922-2006)
Demobilized from the British Army after the Second World War, he came to Canada to teach at Queen's University, writes Sandra MARTIN. Later, he became editor-owner of Saturday Night and a champion of the arts
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
A smart boy from a poor family, Arnold EDINBOROUGH made excellent use of his brains and personality to earn an elite British education on merit rather than pedigree. After winning the Military Cross for bravery in the Second World War, he emigrated to Canada and became a significant cultural force as editor of the Kingston Whig-Standard and Saturday Night magazine. A devout Anglican, an accomplished public speaker, raconteur, and columnist for the Financial Post magazine, Mr. EDINBOROUGH was the author of several books and the founding president and chief executive officer of the Council for Business and the Arts in Canada, a pioneering advocacy group encouraging corporations to support the arts.
He had an uncanny likeness to his friend, novelist Robertson DAVIES, with the same receding hairline and pointed Van Dyke beard. Indeed, there's a story from the 1970s about an excited airline passenger sitting beside Mr. DAVIES (newly famous because of the success of his novel Fifth Business) and lavishing him with praise during the seven-hour flight across the Atlantic, only to say on landing: "My wife will be so excited to hear that I have met Arnold EDINBOROUGH."
It was Mr. EDINBOROUGH's misfortune to be an anglophile in Canada at a time of nascent cultural nationalism. He loved the country with a passion and worked hard to nurture a climate for arts and culture. "He might have seemed a bit stuffy to subsequent editors of Saturday Night," journalist John FRASER said yesterday, referring to himself and Robert FULFORD, "but he certainly gave me a big break by publishing 'political letters from Newfoundland' when I was an undergraduate [at Memorial University]. All you need in journalism to get going is a bit of nerve and somebody to have faith in you and get you published so people can see that you can do it," he said. "Every journalist has somebody in their life who somebody took a chance on, and he was mine."
Arnold EDINBOROUGH was the younger son of Frank and Sarah Ann (née CLARK) EDINBOROUGH. His family were tenant farmers. By his grandfather's time, they had managed to acquire a small amount of property. Arnold, who won a scholarship at the age of 11 to attend Spalding Grammar School (founded by Royal Charter in 1588 and officially known as Queen Elizabeth Royal Free Grammar School) was the first EDINBOROUGH to go beyond the village school. His future wife, Letitia (Letty) Mary WOOLLEY attended Spalding School for Girls, the female academic equivalent.
They met at the annual tennis challenge between the two schools. She was a champion player, he was head boy, heavily into dramatics, and lacking a partner for the doubles competition. She offered to play with him, a decision she initially regretted because he wielded a racket with a bent elbow. They won the match and continued a casual Friendship in Cambridge, where he went on a scholarship in October of 1940 to study English at St. Catharine's College and where she trained as a nurse at Addenbrooke's Hospital. Their relationship really flourished through the correspondence they exchanged during the Second World War after he enlisted in the British Army, serving with the 23rd Field Regiment of the Royal Artillery in North Africa and then in Italy. He quickly rose to the rank of captain.
He was awarded the Military Cross for bravery for his role as a forward observation officer in the long march on Rome. The citation describes him remaining in his observation post in the "exposed flank of the battalion" during the attack on the River Gaiano, breaking up at least two counter attacks with "accurate gunfire." Later, he destroyed two enemy-held footbridges and contributed "greatly" to the speed of the advance on Medicina. "His complete disregard of his own safety was an inspiration to all," according to the citation.
Any thought of remaining in the military after the war ended evaporated after his colonel enquired whether he had the necessary funds to support himself properly as an officer in the professional army. He was demobilized in December of 1945, returned to Cambridge to resume his studies for his degree in English, married Ms. WOOLLEY on January 14, 1946, and graduated with a very respectable 2.1 ranking in 1947. After toying with the idea of working for the British Council -- the postings he was offered were in Brazil and Turkey and a teaching post in what was then Ceylon, he accepted a fortuitous offer from the ex-patriate British Shakespearean scholar G.B. Harrison to teach at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario His marks, his passion for drama and his experience teaching at the University of Lausanne during summer vacations cinched the appointment. He and his bride sailed for Canada in August of 1947.
All three of the EDINBOROUGH's children, Christine, Alistair and Sarah, were born in Kingston, where Mr. EDINBOROUGH taught at Queen's in both the normal academic year and in the summer school, and picked up courses to teach at The Royal Military College as well. Cambridge automatically bestowed a master's degree on him in 1950 to mark the third anniversary of his graduation. He went back to England in 1952 to work on a doctorate, but abandoned the advanced degree after deciding he was a popularizer and a teacher rather than a scholar, according to his youngest daughter, Sarah, an arts administrator.
Kingston was "a dour Presbyterian place," which he described in his 1991 memoir, Arnold Edinborough: An Autobiography, as "like Caesar's Gaul, divided into three parts: town, gown and military." Although each pretty much kept to itself, Mr. EDINBOROUGH managed to bridge all three, largely because of his Friendship with Robertson DAVIES.
They had both been educated in England (although Mr. DAVIES went to Oxford, not Cambridge), they shared a passion for theatre and English literature, and they both had families and small children. They differed in two major respects: Mr. DAVIES came from a wealthy literary family, and he was an exceptionally talented writer. When they met, Mr. DAVIES was the editor of The Peterborough Examiner, a newspaper owned by his father, Rupert DAVIES, and he generously introduced his younger English friend to the nascent literary community. When Mr. EDINBOROUGH left academe in 1954, he became the editor of the Kingston Whig-Standard, which was also owned by Mr. DAVIES's father.
After four years at the helm of the Whig, Mr. EDINBOROUGH resigned to move to Toronto as editor of Saturday Night Magazine, which was then owned by the flamboyant media entrepreneur Jack Kent Cooke. The two did not share an editorial vision, but Mr. EDINBOROUGH outlasted his employer by buying the magazine away from him (and mortgaging his house to do so -- a flamboyant gesture that he advised John FRASER, a later editor of the magazine, not to emulate.)
The reports on Mr. EDINBOROUGH's tenure as editor of the venerable (and now defunct) magazine vary. He had a quick succession of managing editors, including Harry Bruce, Kildare Dobbs and Jack Batten. "Arnold was an impressive figure with a goatee beard and a fine speaking voice and given to sounding off at banquets about dirty books and other issues of the day," said Mr. Dobbs in an e-mail message. "His virtues as an editor were his friendliness to talent and willingness to leave associates to run their own shows."
Those are "virtues" that he may have taken to extremes in a three-person operation that makes shoestring seem extravagant. "Arnold was the editor of record, but I did all the work," said Mr. Batten, who was managing editor from September of 1967 to April of 1968 "just long enough to know that I didn't ever want to be an editor. I wanted to be a writer."
He described his boss's "idiosyncrasy" of spending about half his time out of the office travelling, delivering speeches and encouraging random acquaintances, rather than professional writers, to send stories to the magazine. Mr. Batten put out three issues and then quit to work as a writer for The Star Weekly, which was then being edited by Peter Gzowski.
Robert Fulford followed Mr. Batten, but he insisted on being named editor in name, as well as deed. Mr. EDINBOROUGH then became publisher of Saturday Night Publications, which at the time included Monday Morning, a magazine for teachers, and Parallele, a quarterly published in French with articles translated from Saturday Night. "In the end, it was the wrong decision," Mr. EDINBOROUGH wrote in his autobiography. "Not to hire Fulford [who continued as editor until Conrad Black bought the magazine in 1987], but to think I could have the revivifying effect on the business side as I had undoubtedly had on the editorial side of Saturday Night Publications."
He finally left the publication in 1970, selling his stake for one penny to David Fry, William Nobleman and Jack Seed. He went on to write an extremely popular column on the arts in the Financial Post magazine, which dovetailed with his advocacy work with corporations at the Council for Business and the Arts in Canada, a position he held until he retired in 1989 at the age of 67.
Arnold EDINBOROUGH was born in Donnington, Lincolnshire, on August 2, 1922. He died in Oakville, Ontario, on June 2, after suffering a massive stroke during surgery for skin cancer. He was 83. Predeceased by his son, Alistair, he is survived by his wife, Letty, daughters Christine and Sarah, and six grandchildren.

Nina MORLEY, Professor (1909-2006)
Brilliant University of Toronto researcher's first supervisor was Charles BEST, with whom she co-authored an early paper
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Most likely, Nina MORLEY, a bright high-school graduate from Kamloops, British Columbia, found her life a bit boring. During the 1930s, discouraged from working or higher education by her parents, she spent her life playing badminton, participating in theatre groups and leading Girl Guides.
So, when offered a free place to stay in Toronto, Nina MORLEY, 10 years out of high school, headed east on a one-way ticket. Once arrived, she enrolled at the University of Toronto and eventually became a researcher there. Her first supervisor was Charles BEST, a co-discoverer of insulin; with him, she co-authored one of her early papers.
She taught at the university while continuing with her research in the Banting and Best Department of Medical Research, part of the U of T's faculty of medicine.
Under the supervision of Arnis KUKSIS, she studied the activity of the lipases involved in fat absorption from the intestine and in fat clearance from the blood, resulting in a better understanding of one of the underlying causes of obesity, heart disease and strokes. Lipases are the enzymes that break down dietary or blood fats and free the fatty acids required for absorption by tissues.
Prof. MORLEY co-authored many papers published in leading scientific journals with Doctor KUKSIS, her final supervisor, between the late 1960s and late '70s. "Nina was a very determined, independent person," Doctor KUKSIS said. "There really wasn't room for supervision."
Nina Hope MORLEY grew up as the second of four daughters of an English lawyer and his wife. Not only did she excel in high school, but also at the U of T. The Globe and Mail reported in June of 1939: "Scores of scholarships and prizes studded the list with special kudos for the elect, none of them could match for sheer dramatic quality, the performance of Miss Nina H. MORLEY of Kamloops, British Columbia, who at 29, and after being out of school for 10 years, won the 1939 Governor-General's silver medal for highest general proficiency."
Prof. MORLEY, according to the reporter, said she had never thought much about going to university but, when the opportunity arose, she went out of curiosity and enjoyed it thoroughly.
Perhaps she had been influenced by a British teacher who once stayed with the MORLEY family. For at least 25 years, she corresponded with Christine Fonntaine, who sent her books as well as letters.
Prof. MORLEY supported herself through her degree by doing odd jobs and babysitting, graduating in 1941 in home economics. She interned at Vancouver General Hospital as a dietician and, in 1944, finished her master's degree at the University of British Columbia. The school hired her as an assistant professor of home economics.
"She was an excellent professor," said Evelyn SIMS, one of her students from that time. "She was compassionate and a great person. You could talk to her, any time."
At the same time, she worked on her PhD, keeping her research in one of the wartime huts that served as a classroom. When the hut burned down, her work went with it. Still, she completed her doctorate in home economics at Oregon State College in 1957.
From there, she took up research at the University of Toronto and stayed until retirement. After she retired, she stayed active with the university, proofreading and editing many papers. She also travelled extensively and took an avid interest in the history of the Middle East, even studying cuneiform.
She never married, perhaps because her British parents cared about the social status of her suitors, perhaps because the Second World War intervened.
Said a friend, Shirley FRASER: " She believed that everyone was put on Earth for a reason and that everyone, whether in work or in life, had it within them to live up to their full potential even if they had to be berated into believing it."
Nina Hope MORLEY was born in Kamloops, British Columbia, on December, 14, 1909. She died in Toronto on May 9. She is survived by her sister, Brenda.

Officer who shot Dudley GEORGE dies
DEANE killed in accident on 401
He was scheduled to testify at inquiry
By Peter EDWARDS, Staff Reporter
Kenneth DEANE, the elite Ontario Provincial Police paramilitary officer convicted of fatally shooting Indian activist Anthony (Dudley) GEORGE, was killed on the weekend in a traffic accident on Highway 401 in eastern Ontario.
DEANE, 45, was in charge of a four-man sniper team late at night on September 6, 1995, with the job of escorting the force's crowd management unit, or riot squad, as it marched toward about three dozen protestors outside Ipperwash Provincial Park.
Police marched on the park at night two days after Stoney Point Indians occupied the park, saying it contained sacred burial grounds. Their claims were later supported by documents released by the federal government.
DEANE, nicknamed "Tex" by colleagues, was expected to be called as a witness next month at the Ipperwash inquiry before Mr. Justice Sidney LINDEN in the town of Forest, near the now-closed park.
The mandate of the inquiry is to probe events surrounding GEORGE's death, and to draft recommendations to prevent similar deaths in the future.
"He did wrong, but the family has always said that he shouldn't be the scapegoat," GEORGE family lawyer Murray KLIPPENSTEIN said.
"The family thinks the inquiry can still do its very important job very well," KLIPPENSTEIN said.
The inquiry has heard 101 witnesses: since it began hearings in July 2004.
Sam GEORGE, Dudley's brother, said in an interview yesterday that he felt bad when he heard of the death, which happened on Saturday afternoon during a whiteout on Highway 401 near Prescott.
"Any life lost is a tragedy," Sam GEORGE said. "I feel badly for his family."
DEANE is the third police officer involved in the massive police operation at Ipperwash to die in a traffic accident.
Sgt. Margaret EVE was hit by a transport truck on Highway 401 near Chatham in June 2000, while Insp. Dale LINTON, the officer who activated DEANE's unit that night, was killed in a single-vehicle accident near Smiths Falls in October 2000.
The Ontario Provincial Police said that DEANE was killed by a tractor-trailer at about 1: 15 p.m. on Saturday.
DEANE was driving a westbound Ford Explorer, and was attempting to steer around vehicles when he struck the back of a stopped tractor-trailer unit. A second tractor-trailer was unable to stop and struck his Explorer. DEANE was pronounced dead at the scene.
A passenger, who has not been identified, was taken to Brockville General Hospital with serious injuries.
Sam GEORGE, who never spoke to DEANE, said he would have been a valuable witness at the public inquiry.
"We needed to know why he thought he was there that night," Sam GEORGE said. "Who told him to go there? What he was told, and what was his mission… Now, we'll never know."
DEANE was found guilty of criminal negligence causing death in April 1997.
Provincial Judge Hugh FRASER ruled then that Dudley GEORGE, 38, was unarmed when he was shot, and that DEANE's fellow officers doctored their evidence to support him.
That trial, held in the Sarnia courthouse, heard that GEORGE had a bullet wound in his right calf, consistent with him being shot in the back of the leg, and another bullet wound that punctured a lung.
After being found guilty of shooting GEORGE, DEANE was given a conditional sentence of two years less a day, to be served outside jail, plus community service. At the time of the shooting, DEANE was a senior officer in the paramilitary Tactics and Rescue Unit, which carried sub-machine guns with night-vision scopes.
DEANE hung on to his job for 5½ years after the criminal conviction, as he unsuccessfully appealed the verdict to the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada.
Once his appeals were exhausted, he faced disciplinary charges under the Police Services Act.
In September 2001, he told a disciplinary hearing: "I sincerely apologize to the family and Friends of Dudley GEORGE and to his community for causing the terrible loss that they have been forced to endure."
However, under cross-examination, he said his apology did not mean that he admitted doing anything wrong in the park that night, when he and six other Ontario Provincial Police officers fired upon Indian protestors.
Former Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Thomas O'GRADY told the public inquiry last fall that he now believes that all of the Indian protestors were unarmed.
Prosecutor Denise DWYER asked DEANE at his 2001 disciplinary hearing if he felt he was justified in opening fire.
"That was my belief that night," DEANE replied.
"And it remains your belief today?" DWYER continued.
"Yes it does," he replied.
At those Police Services Act hearings in late 2001, DEANE's lawyer, Ian ROLAND argued that, apart from Ipperwash, DEANE had had a stellar 16-year career with the Ontario Provincial Police.
ROLAND noted that DEANE had risen since the night of GEORGE's death to become the force's top bomb and anti-terrorist weapons expert. ROLAND also noted that many political commentators blamed the former Conservative provincial government for the bloodshed at Ipperwash.
"Acting Sergeant DEANE didn't make the decision for the Ontario Provincial Police to be involved and cannot be held responsible for the damage that flowed from the incident," said ROLAND, calling dismissal a "professional death sentence."
However, when she ordered DEANE off the force, adjudicator Loyall CANN, former deputy chief of the Toronto force, called DEANE's conviction "the most serious" ever recorded against the Ontario Provincial Police.
"What could possibly be more shocking to society than to have a sworn, fully trained and experienced police officer, while on duty, in full uniform, using a police-issued firearm, kill an unarmed citizen?" she asked in her 28-page ruling.
"This is further aggravated by the fact that the sworn police officer was found by the presiding criminal court justice to have concocted and fabricated his evidence.
"I find that this is one of those exceedingly tragic incidents in which one act of negligent behaviour has totally nullified an otherwise promising career," she said, ordering DEANE off the force in January 2002 for discreditable conduct because of his criminal conviction.
In his April 1997 criminal trial, DEANE testified that he fired after observing muzzle flashes indicating that the protestors were firing at officers -- and that he saw a man in a half-crouched position holding a rifle and scanning the police.
He also gave a detailed description of the rifle.
But DEANE was found guilty after another officer who had been standing close to him at the time testified that he did not see any muzzle flashes, other than his own, and that he observed "a pole or stick" in GEORGE's hand.
DEANE had fired seven shots that night -- four at other natives and three at GEORGE.
After losing his job, DEANE worked in security with an Ontario Hydro nuclear station.
