John GILBERT, Lawyer And Politician: (1921-2006)
Brought up in a poor, working-class family in Toronto, he entered law and politics to try and make the world a better place. 'There wasn't a tinge of self-righteousness about him'
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Having vowed when he started practising law that each year any money he earned over $5,000 he would give away, John GILBERT lived up to a deeply held belief that he should help society's less fortunate. This belief led him to enter politics as a federal candidate for the New Democratic Party in 1963, and later helped him during 15 years as a judge in Ontario.
Mr. GILBERT, known to Friends as Jack, lost his first run at politics in 1963. Two years later, his luck turned: He won a seat in the riding of Riverdale (now called Broadview-Greenwood), which had been Conservative since 1867. After his win, he told reporters that he and his wife, Nora, had tirelessly knocked on the doors of all the riding's 15,000 homes.
"As soon as we began to talk to the people and found out how they were thinking, we knew we would win," Mr. GILBERT said at the time.
He attributed a large part of his good reputation in his riding to his work at Woodgreen Community Centre. Each week, he devoted a day to the legal problems of Broadview residents, work that he said gave him a chance to see many of the problems his constituents had. He went on to serve the community for 13 years as an member of Parliament. During that time, he was a caucus member under New Democratic Party leaders Tommy Douglas and Ed BROADBENT.
"He was one of the members of Parliament that I most admired in my life," said Mr. BROADBENT, who for many years held the riding of Oshawa-Whitby. Describing Mr. GILBERT as a gentle individual capable of unbelievable kindness, Mr. BROADBENT said Jack GILBERT had so few aggressive bones in his body that he wouldn't fight, like many of his fellow members of Parliament, to get into Question Period.
"There wasn't a tinge of self-righteousness about him," Mr. BROADBENT said. While he was a good constituents' member of Parliament, Mr. GILBERT didn't focus on his riding to the expense of national issues. "He was always good in caucus. He knew the national issues and he made his views known."
In 1969, Mr. GILBERT sharply criticized the government after the findings of a five-month housing inquiry were released. Calling the inquiry "a colossal fraud on the Canadian public," Mr. GILBERT said it had wasted time finding out what was already known. He said the report showed no concern for low-income people. He went on to say that it was strange that Canada could build enough cars, television sets and radios for its people but not enough houses to fulfill a basic right to decent accommodation. During his time as an member of Parliament, Mr. GILBERT also spent time at the United Nations with Pierre Trudeau, whom he greatly admired. Among the stories he liked to tell about his years in Ottawa was the time he and his wife, along with another member of Parliament and his wife, were heading to a black-tie affair where the Queen was the guest of honour. On their way, their old car broke down and they were forced to hitchhike. When a farmer stopped in his pickup to give them a ride, the two women sat in the front while John and the other member of Parliament hopped in the back, sitting atop a bale of hay.
Raised in Toronto, Jack GILBERT was the youngest of five children whose parents had left Ireland as poor Protestants and immigrated to Canada. At first, life was tough. With little money, John and his brothers gathered pieces of coal that had fallen off horse-drawn coal wagons to take home and heat their house. During the Depression, the family eventually lost their home to a mortgage foreclosure.
As a young boy, he sold papers in the heart of Toronto at Yonge and Bloor streets, for two cents each. Later in life, he loved to show his children how -- all in one motion -- he could still take a newspaper, slap it against his leg, fold it twice, slip it under the buyer's arm and hold out his hand for payment.
To help support his family, he left school early. After a couple of years working in a paper-box factory, he met and married his true love, Nora LAW, and she put him through university by working as a secretary at a car dealership. After learning they couldn't have children, they adopted three in succession.
When Mr. GILBERT graduated from law school, he went to work for a large firm but soon left because he felt they charged clients too much. He set up a private practice to represent the less fortunate and did a lot of pro bono work for the Salvation Army.
After 13 years in federal politics, Mr. GILBERT accepted an appointment in 1978 as a judge to the District Court of Ontario (now the Superior Court of Justice), where he remained until his retirement in 1993. After receiving the appointment, he called Bob Rae, who is now running for the leadership of the federal Liberal Party, and asked him if he would take over his seat. Mr. Rae is reported to have asked if his health was forcing him to leave.
"Yes," Mr. GILBERT replied. "I'm very healthy and I want to stay that way." Mr. Rae accepted the offer and was elected to the House of Commons in a 1978 by-election, defeating Conservative candidate Tom Clifford. Interestingly, Jack Layton, the current New Democratic Party leader, represents the same riding.
Vacations in the GILBERT household were seen as opportunities to help others. Some Christmas vacations in the 1960s were spent at an interracial commune in Americus, Georgia. Others were spent in Jamaica lending a hand to a friend who had started a residential school for deaf children.
"He believed in the human spirit," said his son Peter GILBERT, who described his father as a quietly religious person who felt God's hand was in everything he had been given.
In a 1971 letter to the editor of The Globe and Mail, Ted SUGGITT of Lindsay, Ontario, wrote about a memorable hitchhiking experience. While living in a northern cabin with his family, Mr. SUGGITT was hitchhiking back to the city when a man, his wife and their children stopped to pick him up.
"It was a wet, fall day, but the climate inside the car was cheerful and relaxed," Mr. SUGGITT wrote. "As our conversation touched on many subjects, I found myself enjoying the company of this man and his family. He was quite concerned about my problems of that day, which had to do with housing and working away from home."
After dropping him off in the city, Mr. GILBERT gave him his card and told him to call if he ever needed anything. Some time later, the hitchhiker saw Mr. GILBERT's picture in the paper and discovered he was a candidate in an upcoming election. "Although he was of a political party not of my choice, I was of the opinion Parliament would be a better place with a man of this calibre," Mr. SUGGITT wrote. "I have not been disappointed."
As a judge, Mr. GILBERT showed the same decency and fairness that he had in politics. In a 1985 case involving a man charged with mischief, Mr. GILBERT ordered a Toronto jury to acquit the man after determining that he had been pressured by police to give a statement. After hearing the statement, Mr. GILBERT said: "You could probably call 50 witnesses: and I wouldn't be persuaded the statement was voluntary."
There was no pretension about John GILBERT, said his friend, Ted MATLOW, a fellow judge. "Every serious legal discussion would end with a review of the Toronto Blue Jays team."
While he enjoyed his work in politics and law, Mr. GILBERT's family came first. After his wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, he cared for her for the next 10 years. Last fall, the couple celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. She died in June; six weeks later, Mr. GILBERT went into hospital. In caring for his wife, he had neglected his own health.
John GILBERT was born in Toronto on September 12, 1921.
He died in Toronto on August 7, 2006, after suffering from a blood condition and prostate cancer.
He was 84. He leaves his children, John, Gwen and Peter; several grandchildren and one great grandchild. He also leaves his sister, Kathleen, and brother, Arthur.

With the grace of a woman You learn to build your roads on today You plant you own garden And decorate your own soul Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers You learn that you really can endure That you really are strong And you do have worth And you learn and you learn With every goodbye you learn
The family will welcome Friends to share memories at the Mighton Funeral Home in Hanover on Monday July 17, 2006 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A celebration of Gayle's life will take place at Trinity Lutheran Church, Ayton on Tuesday July 18, 2006 at 11: 00 a.m. Should family and Friends so desire a donation in Gayle's name to Camp Cherith Ontario would be appreciated.

Ray ARSENAULT: Producer And Director (1929-2006)
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television pioneer who shaped Hockey Night in Canada into what it is today tackled anything. 'You name it, he did it'
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S11
Toronto -- There wasn't much that Ray ARSENAULT didn't do in the early years of television in Canada. The first few years of his career ranged from working at one of the first private television stations in Canada to figuring out how to run ads on the early Hockey Night in Canada. He worked for every network in the country as well as for many independent companies.
"He always believed good television had nothing to do with technological advances and all you ever needed and still do is teamwork, timing and a good yarn. He was a great storyteller and a playful soul," said his daughter Adrienne ARSENAULT, a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation News foreign correspondent.
Ray ARSENAULT produced one of the first live television events in Canada in September of 1954 after the 16-year-old swimmer Marilyn BELL was feted at city hall in Hamilton. The television station was CHCH and it had only started broadcasting in June of that year, less than two years after Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television had gone on the air.
Mr. ARSENAULT was in charge of working out how to do something that would have been easy in radio but was so far untried in television. City hall was too far from the station to run a cable so they used a microwave dish. "I remember setting up the microwave dish in the clock tower and pointing it back at the station," said Bill LAWRENCE, then a technician at CHCH who went on to become a well-known weatherman. "Ray was the one who directed the entire thing."
Mr. ARSENAULT had been one of three men with American experience hired to produce the first programs at CHCH. He had arrived from Detroit to find a primitive operation with two cameras.
"Someone would say we want to do this, or cover that, and Ray would be the one to figure out how to do it," Mr. LAWRENCE said. "We were all pupils of his and he was an educator in the early days of television in Canada."
A month after the Marilyn BELL program, Mr. ARSENAULT had to work out the logistics of a special broadcast on hurricane Hazel.
Later, at Hockey Night in Canada, he worked for MacLaren Advertising, which owned the rights to the series. One of his colleagues recalled how they came up with a see-through logo for advertisers that could be superimposed over the picture. They would place it in front of the camera lens, then switch to it for a shot of the beer company or service station.
The hockey games were live but so, too, were the commercials. Holed up in a small studio in Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens, Mr. ARSENAULT would direct Murray WESTGATE, who played the friendly Esso gas station owner, to give his trademark salute, "Happy Motoring." When a break in the play occurred, they would cut away to an ad. It had to be perfect, since it was live.
Perhaps one of Mr. ARSENAULT's toughest jobs was producing a daily situation comedy for CTV. It was called The Trouble with Tracy and could be best described as a kind of I Love Lucy knock-off. It was a co-production of CTV and an American studio to see whether it was possible to produce a daily sitcom.
"It was the first Canadian-produced sitcom, and I played the ditsy blonde," said Diane Nyland PROCTOR. "He was really good with actors, in spite of all the pressure. There was never an angry word between cast, directors and crew."
In spite of the Quebec name, Ray ARSENAULT was from Detroit. His father was part of a generation of Quebeckers who found work in the auto plants of Detroit. Ray went to local schools and learned television at Wayne State University. He joined the U.S. Marines in the late 1940s and remained until just before the start of the Korean War.
After returning home, he started working at WWJ, a television station in Detroit. It was an era in television when everyone who worked in it seemed to do everything. Mr. ARSENAULT learned a lot in a hurry. He quickly became a studio director, a job that demands the ability to run several things at once and yet remain calm. If a director is nervous, it soon shows in the face of the actor or television announcer.
For all that, one of the biggest things to happen to him at CHCH was to meet a young woman named Bette, who worked on the technical side of things. They married about two years later. He soon took his directing skills to MacLaren Advertising where he worked on Hockey Night in Canada but it wasn't long before he moved back to television.
In 1961, Mr. ARSENAULT was hired as executive producer at CFTO, Toronto's first private television station. He was in charge of ensuring things got on the air, trained new studio workers and produced daily programs.
"He was very skilled with live television in the days before we could edit videotape," said Murray CHERCOVER, who was Mr. ARSENAULT's boss at CFTO and then hired him for many projects when he was head of the CTV network. "Ray could go into a studio or live event with five or six cameras and edit by cutting and dissolving from camera to camera as he went along, and keeping to time.
"He did everything in television from documentaries to situation comedy. You name it, he did it"
As an independent producer and director, he also worked on the popular King of Kensington series. He was a founding member of the Director's Guild of Canada.
Raymond ARSENAULT was born in Detroit on December 28, 1929. He died of a pulmonary embolism in Toronto on August 27, 2006. He leaves his wife, Bette, and daughter, Adrienne, and sister, Mary.

Four homicides, one long night
Police chase leads in garage slaying of man, woman
Other victims are man who was shot, Brampton mother
By Thulasi SRIKANTHAN, Meghan HURLEY and Betsy POWELL, Staff Reporters with files from Jim WILKES
Virgilo CUEVAS often used the garage of his home for refuge, and to smoke -- and that's where he and a female "acquaintance" were shot dead, leaving Toronto police searching for a motive and the killers.
"We're still working on a couple of theories, but there's nothing concrete that I can say yet," homicide Det. Wayne FOWLER said yesterday.
CUEVAS, 31, and a 56-year-old woman were found lying on the concrete floor of the attached garage of a house near Steeles Ave. E. and Markham Rd. on Wednesday night. Police were waiting to notify next of kin yesterday before releasing the woman's identity.
Meanwhile, police on the other side of Toronto were investigating the Wednesday evening slaying of a man in his 40s, and Peel Region police were probing the death of a 31-year-old mother of two whose body was found early yesterday.
A man identified by Friends as Gerald McDONALD may have been killed over the cash he was carrying when he was shot in an apartment building on Weston Rd. near Eglinton Ave. W., a friend speculated.
"He had $1,700 in his pocket. Maybe someone knew that he cashed his cheque and that he had this money," said Nancy IANNRELLA, owner of Nancy's Bar and Grill, next to the apartment.
McDONALD had been released from jail just two hours before he was killed, she said, and had dropped into the bar before going to cash the cheque.
Police were called to the building at about 7: 23 p.m. Wednesday after someone reported hearing gunshots.
The victim died in hospital yesterday.
About 90 minutes later, in Scarborough, CUEVAS' wife, Maria, found her husband and his friend after she drove up to the house around 8: 45 p.m. Wednesday.
The garage door was partly open, and when she drove in she could see one of the bodies, FOWLER said.
She then went inside, where the couples' three young children were with their grandparents.
FOWLER said no one in the house is a suspect.
CUEVAS was home all day and had gone on his own into the garage, where he was joined by the woman.
"The purpose of her visit, I don't know," FOWLER said. She doesn't live nearby and was driven to the address. The wife knows "her husband's friend" by sight.
There was no romantic relationship, he added.
witnesses: described two men, of Asian or Filipino descent -- as were the victims -- wearing light-coloured jackets or jerseys running away from the scene.
No firearms were located.
The wife's father, who asked not to be identified, said he saw his distraught daughter early yesterday morning.
The only thing she would say was that her husband was gone. "That's all," her father said. "She was crying really hard."
The children do not really know what is going on, he said. Two of them are staying with him. "They are sad, they cannot sleep."
Neighbours say they often saw the children running around the red-brick home, cycling and spending time with their father in the backyard, where they often barbecued.
Yesterday, a shiny blue bicycle with training wheels sat on the freshly cut lawn.
"Nothing like this ever happened on this street before," said Darrell RUBIO, who has lived there for three years. He said the family held a lot of parties, and there were always people coming in and out.
Rayne DOOKIE was in her home relaxing when she thought she heard a loud noise.
"I heard a shot. I thought it was a car backfiring." She said she quickly dismissed it because she couldn't imagine anything like a murder happening in their quiet neighbourhood.
Councillor Raymond CHO was going door-to-door in his ward to reassure citizens.
"I was totally frustrated, shocked and angry, because this is a good community," he said.
Meanwhile, Peel Region saw its fourth homicide this year with the death of Malena MORALES, whose body was found in a 12th-floor Brampton apartment early yesterday.
Police found MORALES's body showing "obvious signs of trauma" when they responded to a call at about 2 a.m., said Const. Jennifer BRYER.
Homicide detectives sealed off the building, on Steeles Ave. W. near Hurontario Street, and officers canvassed other residents throughout the day.
Residents said the woman lived with a man and two children, but it was not known whether she was married.
Two boys, a 10-year-old and his younger brother, were being cared for by relatives as police searched for a male suspect.
"This used to be a good building," said a woman who has lived there 16 years.
"But it's been going downhill for the last year or so. There have been a lot of drugs and dealers and the police have been here many times."
An autopsy is planned today at the Centre of Forensic Sciences in Toronto.
The gunning-down of the man Friends called McDONALD, whom police have not officially identified, makes him the fifth homicide victim killed somewhere along Weston Rd. in just a few months.
On July 2, a 25-year-old man was gunned down outside a bar on Weston south of Rogers Rd.
Three men tried to steal the money being collected at the club's front door, police said. A second victim caught in the crossfire was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
On June 13, police found Clive McNABB, 39, stabbed to death in his Weston Rd. and Eglinton Ave. W. apartment, just steps from the scene of Wednesday's shooting.
A week before McNABB's death, 22-year-old Gabriel JARAMILLO was shot dead in the area around Weston Rd. and Lawrence Ave. E. Peyton BADIRU, 26, has been charged with second-degree murder in that case.
And at the end of March, Romaine LAWRENCE, 18, was killed when bullets tore through the window of a pizza parlour at Weston Rd. and Eglinton Ave. W.
"We've been directing our resources along that stretch of Weston Rd.," Staff Sgt. Gary MULHOLLAND, of 12 Division, said in response to a question about the cluster of homicides.
"Over the past few years we've had initiatives to lower violence and we will continue to do so."
MULHOLLAND said that while it is "unsettling for the neighbourhood," the violence mostly seems related to activities of criminals in the area. "It's not just the average citizen walking down the street."
That's little comfort to McDONALD's bar-owner friend, since he was shot steps away from where she works.
Someone came running into the bar screaming to call the police after the shooting, IANNRELLA said.
She was working when it happened and saw the victim in the hallway when she went upstairs.
"I can't sleep because I'm in such shock because it happened in my neighbourhood," IANNRELLA said.
"I know when I go home in the night I get scared."
