Mark FARRELL, Newspaper Publisher (1913-2006)
Controversial top man at The Windsor Star and the Montreal Gazette was never reluctant to skewer sacred cows, but always remained a stickler for truth and integrity
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to Globe and Mail, Page S11
Toronto -- Mark FARRELL arrived as publisher of The Windsor Star in 1969, driving a green Volkswagen Beetle festooned with flower decals. His young daughters, who put them on, had assured him they would easily wash off. They didn't, and the splashy foreign car, in the home of Chrysler Canada, was to become a symbol of a brash new direction for the previously staid newspaper.
During his four years in Windsor, Mr. FARRELL gave the Star's editorial support to the New Democratic Party in the 1972 federal election, the first time any Canadian newspaper had endorsed the party, and organized one of the country's first press councils.
As publisher of the Montreal Gazette, from late 1972 to 1977, he supported language rights for French-speaking Quebeckers and encouraged an era of award-winning investigative journalism. Earlier in his career, he supervised the building of Canada's largest rotogravure printing plant for Standard Publishing in Montreal, and played a key role in creating two of the most-read publications in the country's history, Weekend and Perspectives magazines.
A left-leaning social democrat from his days at McGill University, Mark FARRELL was never reluctant to skewer sacred cows, but was a stickler for truth and integrity. He lived with a stammer he could not control, but never allowed it to hold him back. In his personal time, he was an avid outdoorsman and expert skier, a caring family man and a lover of black poodles.
"Mark was every reporter's dream of what a publisher should be," says Tim Creery, editorial page editor of the Montreal Gazette under Mr. FARRELL. "He stood up to advertising and political pressure on editorial content. He applauded vigorous and deep-digging reporting. He encouraged outspoken editorials favouring the interests of ordinary people and denouncing privilege."
The second of four sons of Montreal stockbroker Gerald FARRELL and the former Eileen O'MEARA, Mark FARRELL was born into money. When he was 6, his father died. The boy attended Selwyn House, a private school in Montreal for a few years until his mother moved the family to England, where he and two brothers went to Ampleforth College, a prestigious Catholic boys' boarding school that their father had attended. In his unpublished memoirs, written with Mr. Creery's assistance, Mr. FARRELL described being the only boy since the school started to receive a caning of 13 strokes.
Returning to Canada, he earned a commerce degree at McGill University, yet the only diploma he ever posted on his office wall was from a six-week sociology course at Moscow University's American Institute. During the Depression, he turned a $5,000 inheritance into nearly $20,000 on the stock market and then lost it all. At the same time, he worked for free as managing editor of Canadian Forum, a left-leaning intellectual magazine, and as treasurer of the Ontario branch of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation, the predecessor of the New Democratic Party.
After becoming a chartered accountant, he was hired as promotion manager at Montreal Standard Publishing Co. He married his first wife, Joanna WRIGHT, on the eve of the Second World War, but was turned down by the military because of his stammer. Instead, he worked for the British Air Commission in New York, where he became internal auditor and signed cheques totalling $1.5-billion for British purchases of U.S. aircraft and supplies. Returning to Standard Publishing, he became a director and the right-hand man of John McConnell, son of owner J.W. McConnell.
At Standard, he supervised the construction of a state-of-the-art rotogravure printing plant and helped found Weekend and Perspectives, weekly English and French magazines that were carried in Saturday editions of newspapers across the country. Their combined circulation of 2.5-million was a Canadian record.
After separating from his first wife in the late 1940s, Mr. FARRELL married Florence WALL, a Weekend employee, in 1952. In 1969, Mr. FARRELL was hired to run The Windsor Star after two members of the owning GRAYBIEL family died in quick succession. According to his memoirs, he accepted the offer, which he had previously turned down, after being squeezed out in a power struggle at Standard Publishing. Told to act as through he owned The Windsor Star, he redesigned its layout, sponsored a regular broadcast on U.S. Public Television in Detroit to tell Americans about Canada, and made Peter BENESH, an immigrant from Czechoslovakia, a member of the editorial board at the age of 23. Mr. BENESH recalls his boss regularly quoting H.L. Mencken's adage: "A journalist's job is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable."
While at the Star in 1971, Mr. FARRELL set up a press council to consider local complaints. It became the model for the Ontario Press Council. He also led a successful editorial campaign to bring Windsor's U.S.-owned CKLW radio station into Canadian hands, says Hugh NANGLE, who served under Mr. FARRELL on the editorial boards in both Windsor and Montreal. In 1972, the Southam newspaper chain transferred Mr. FARRELL to Montreal.
Under Mr. FARRELL, The Windsor Star was the first large daily to support the New Democratic Party in a federal election, and the first to call for legalization of marijuana and abortion, Mr. NANGLE says. Mr. FARRELL also curtailed the influence of the Liberal Party over The Windsor Star and of the Conservative Party over the Gazette, he says. Under Mr. FARRELL, the Gazette supported the aspirations of Quebec nationalists, but not calls for separation.
"He was a patrician and had the air of a patrician," says Henry Aubin, an award-winning investigative reporter under Mr. FARRELL and now a Gazette columnist. "He could take on the anglo establishment as one of their own on equal terms. He could have been one of the boys." Mr. Aubin credits Mr. FARRELL with supporting investigative reporting and helping the staff set up a code of ethics for reporters.
Mr. FARRELL had a showdown with The Windsor Star's mechanical unions in 1970, when they staged a two-week sit-in strike in the pressroom. According to James BRUCE, then assistant city editor and later the Star's editor and publisher, Mr. FARRELL staged a sit-in of his own by staying in his office. Publication resumed in two weeks, thanks to a federal labour mediator.
A Time magazine article from the mid-seventies called the Gazette "Canada's most improved newspaper," thanks to Mr. FARRELL and his predecessor, Denis Harvey. It credited Mr. FARRELL with increasing the news budget by 40 per cent in two years, adding editorial staff and hiring managing editor Lindsay Crysler, who launched an era of investigative journalism, and Tim Creery, who gave the editorial and op-ed pages "some bite."
Terry Mosher, the Gazette's editorial cartoonist who signs his drawings Aislin, says Mr. FARRELL gave permission for him to run some controversial pieces early in his career. One of the Queen resulted in the publication of three days of angry letters from readers. Mr. FARRELL left the Gazette in 1977, moving with his wife to a ski property in Stowe, Vt. Later, they moved to Morrisville, Vt. In his retirement, he continued his passion for downhill skiing until 85. His greatest thrill came in 1970, when he did Switzerland's Haute Route, a hut-to-hut trek that involves downhill and cross-country skiing and climbing. Mr. FARRELL talked about social issues even at home, says Willa FARRELL, the youngest of his three daughters. When she was a child, she recalls him lamenting that the newspaper industry was built on the child labour of carrier boys.
Norman Redlich, a former dean of law at New York University and a long-time vacation friend in Vermont, says Mr. FARRELL once told him that the U.S. First Amendment protecting freedom of the press is an old whore that should be retired. "His point was: If you can't verify it, don't print it," Mr. Redlich says. "I've always thought it was an excellent thing for a publisher to say."
Mark FARRELL was born in Montreal on January 22, 1913.
He died of pneumonia on April 6, 2006, in Morrisville, Vt. He was 93. He is survived by his wife, Florence, and their daughters Fiona FARRELL and Willa FARRELL.
He also leaves Sally KININMONTH, his daughter from his marriage to Joanna WRIGHT, several grandchildren and his brother, Charles. An infant son, Mark, died after one day in 1957.

Crash kills two: Single-vehicle accident may have occurred hours before wreckage found
By Sharon WEATHERALL, Monday, April 17, 2006
Craigleith - Speed and alcohol contributed to a fatal collision which killed two Toronto teenagers on the Easter weekend, police say.
The wrecked car with two bodies was found early Saturday morning near Craigleith on Highway 26 near what police called "a bad corner."
Dead are Mykata VASLYNKO, 18, and his passenger Natalie HINCU, Speed and alcohol were both contributing factors in the fatal collision, Collingwood Ontario Provincial Police said in a news release Sunday.
The single motor vehicle accident happened just west of Craigleith Provincial Park. The scene was discovered by a local resident as he pulled off the road onto the shoulder to turn into his driveway at about 7 a.m. He called for help and Collingwood Ontario Provincial Police and Georgian Ambulance responded.
The exact time of the accident is unknown, but sons of the man who called police told their mother they heard a huge crash at about 11 p.m. the night before during a thunder and lightning storm.
Believing the noise was thunder, they did not investigate.
Constable Mark KINNEY of the Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police said police were still investigating.
The 1997 black Ford Probe skidded an estimated 200 metres before going into the ditch on the north side of the road where it hit a tree. The resulting crash sent pieces of the car a few hundred feet. The tree broke in half.
Police crews were still at the scene at 1 p.m. Sunday and Highway 26 was closed between Craigleith park and Grey Road 40 for several hours.

Young mom of two killed by lightning
By Ian ROBERTSON, Sun Media, Sat., July 22, 2006
Toronto -- Angela EXELL was hurrying to leave Wasaga Beach with her children and other relatives when a lighting bolt killed the young mother of two, says her grieving mom.
"It was just a family day at the beach," her mother, Brenda HAUCK, 47, said yesterday after leaving a Barrie funeral home, where arrangements were made for her daughter's funeral.
"It was a wonderful day, until that happened."
As the sky darkened over the popular Wasaga Beach Provincial Park beach early Thursday afternoon, the family began packing up.
On the beach with Angela, 26, were son David, 5, daughter Paige, almost 2, mother-in-law Judy SCHELL, brothers-in-law Ray and Darren EXELL, plus sister-in-law Shannon EXELL, 26, who was with her sister Belinda ATKINSON, 23.
Angela was in the open when she was struck down.
Const. Mark KINNEY was conducting an interview about the Wednesday drowning of Toronto teen Erfan TARAJ when he was alerted.
The officer rushed to the beach and tried to save the young woman, using cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, a colleague said. "He booked off work today… it was pretty traumatic."
In addition to killing Angela, Shannon and Belinda suffered minor injuries. The three women were taken to Collingwood General and Marine Hospital.
Born, raised and schooled in Barrie, the victim was in the Brownies as a girl, and "loved to paint and draw," HAUCK said, her voice catching at the memories.
"She was very artistic," something her daughter was passing on to David and Paige, their grandmother said. "She did crafts with her kids all the time."
Though trained as a manicurist, HAUCK said her daughter in recent times "was a homemaker."
Angela and Michael EXELL, a roofer, married four years ago and moved into a home in Angus, a village near Canadian Forces Base Borden, northwest of Barrie.
"If you asked anyone, she was the most loving, beautiful young lady," her mom said. "She was out to save the world and loved to help people."
Michael and the children are staying with her and husband Ken.

20-year-old dies on snowmobile trail
By Michael GENNINGS, The Connection, Page 12
A snowmobiler from Barrie was found dead by Friends on a trail near New Lowell Sunday afternoon.
Travis PELLETIER, 22, of 121 Grove Street, was found on the trail, near Sunnidale Sideroad 6/7, around 2 p.m.
The man's family said he had been missing since around 2 a.m. Saturday morning when he left to test his snowmobile after making some adjustments.
Police said PELLETIER missed a turn while going along the trail and struck a tree. The location was just 10 minutes from his parents' home, according to family members.
Mark KINNEY, a constable with the Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police said alcohol, excess speed and not wearing a helmet are "a" considered to be factors" in the fatal crash.
Police were on the scene Sunday for almost four hours, trying to piece together what transpired.
"Travis lived on the edge a bit," said Bruce COOK, PELLETIER's stepfather. "But deep down he was a good-hearted person who loved his mom."
"Right now we are trying to celebrate his life."
PELLETIER belonged to the Serpent River First Nation in Cutler, Ontario, halfway between Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie.
COOK said his stepson grew up in Orangeville and later New Lowell. He attended one year at Stayner Collegiate Institute.

Sledder dies, alcohol a factor
Family mourns the loss of son who died while taking his snowmobile for an early Saturday morning ride. Searchers found the young man's body on Sunday afternoon.
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 1
A 22-Year-Old snowmobiler from Barrie was found dead by Friends on a trail near New Lowell Sunday afternoon.
Travis PELLETIER of 121 Grave Street, was found dead on the trail, near Sunnidale Sideroad 6/7, around 2 p.m.
The man's family said he had been missing since around 2 a.m. Saturday morning when he left to test his snow machine after making some adjustments.
Law enforcement officials said that the deceased missed a turn while going along the trail and struck a tree. The location was just 10 minutes from his parents' home, according to family members.
Mark KINNEY, a constable with the Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police, said that alcohol, excess speed and not wearing a helmet are "all considered to be factors" in the fatal crash.
KINNEY said that police were on the scene Sunday for almost four hours, trying to piece together what transpired. The Clearview Fire Department was also on hand for about the first 45 minutes, but other than that Chief Dave CARRUTHERS wasn't able to say what role his people played because he hadn't received a full report.
Bruce COOK, PELLETIER's step-father, talked by telephone with The Stayner Sun on Monday afternoon.
"Travis lived on the edge a bit," he said. "But deep down he was a goodhearted person who loved his mom."
PELLETIER had been arrested and convicted in the past for mischief under $5,000. He also was convicted for drug offences. On both occasions he was sentenced to jail time.
"He had some issues but he was trying to find his niche in life again," COOK said, adding he didn't want to discuss PELLETIER's troubled past. "Right now we are trying to celebrate his life."
PELLETIER was an aboriginal who belonged to the Serpent River First Nation in Cutler, Ontario, halfway between Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie.
COOK said his stepson grew up in Orangeville and later New Lowell. He attended one year at Stayner Collegiate Institute but dropped out.
He said that PELLETIER, who he described as a handsome and slightly athletic man, enjoyed hockey as a youngster but that he abandoned the game in his early teens. Growing up he also liked to skateboard, COOK said.
He did not know if his stepson was working but he did note that PELLETIER was close with his girlfriend of seven years, Tamra LORBETSKIE.
He explained that PELLETIER came to visit his two siblings, Justin, 17, and Amanda, 15, on Friday night in New Lowell. He added that his stepson was drinking before venturing out on the three- or four-year-old snowmobile that he'd owned for only a few months. COOK said he wasn't sure if PELLETIER had much experience on snow machines.
COOK said that Justin and Amanda became alarmed around 10 a.m. Saturday morning when they realized that PELLETIER had not come back from the ride. Friends helped them search but it was not until Sunday that they discovered the man's body, approximately 10 feet off the trail, COOK said.
At one point during the search on Sunday morning COOK said his son Justin walked by the scene but did not see anything.
At the time PELLETIER went missing his stepfather and mother, Michelle, were visiting family on the reserve. COOK said they did not learn that PELLETIER was missing until getting home around noon on Sunday.
COOK said he learned the worst when two family Friends, Ryan McSWEEN and Paul FLANNERY, came up the driveway of their 21 Fawn Cres., home to say they found PELLETIER's body.
Throughout the ordeal COOK said his wife and children have been surrounded by family and Friends, something that has helped a great deal.
PELLETIER's body was taken to Barrie's Royal Victoria Hospital on Sunday for a post-mortem, scheduled to take place Monday afternoon, police said. Details of the autopsy were not available.
The Serpent River Band is handling the funeral arrangements, COOK noted, adding that PELLETIER will be buried on the reserve. He said the man's body was to be picked up yesterday. There will be no public service.
Still, COOK said that in memory of his stepson donations can be made to Stayner Collegiate Institute, where Amanda and Justin attend school or the Barrie Native Friendship Centre.
PELLETIER leaves behind his mother, siblings Justin, 17, Amanda Tammy, 34 and Dean 32.

Port Credit woman dies in Cty. Rd. 124 crash
Three sent to General and Marine with injuries
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 1
A 69-year-old Port Credit woman is dead following an automobile crash on Cty. Rd. 124 around noon Sunday.
Isabel KAY was killed when the green 2004 Jaguar CX3 she was a passenger in collided with a blue 2000 Chevrolet Silverado, near Nottawasaga Sideroad 12/13.
KAY was pronounced dead at the scene.
The woman's husband, Archibald KAY, 73, was driving the Jaguar and injured in the crash. He was transported by ambulance to Collingwood General and Marine Hospital with what police call serious injuries.
Also sent to hospital with minor injuries was Stacey CUMMING, 34, and Daniel CUMMING, 13, both of Badjeros. The two were riding in the Silverado.
Emergency workers said they learned of the mishap when a police officer stumbled upon it while responding to another call. Along with police and paramedics, members of the Clearview Fire Department were on scene as well.
Mark KINNEY a constable with the Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police, could not say if weather conditions played a role in causing the crash.
However, a motorist who happened upon the scene moments after the collision told The Stayner Sun there was snow falling and slush on the road.
Police had County Rd. 124 closed for about three hours while they conducted an investigation. While officers are still looking into the matter, they do have a general sense of what happened, Kinney said.
He explained that the southbound Jaguar passed a transport truck. Pulling back into its lane, the car hit the west shoulder and then veered back into the northbound lane, at which time the Jaguar and Silverado made contact.
Mariane McLEOD, a spokesperson for General and Marine Hospital, said Monday afternoon that KAY is listed in stable condition. There was no information available regarding Stacey and Daniel CUMMING.
