SINCLAIR, Margaret
The family of Margaret SINCLAIR would like to express our heartfelt appreciation for all the support we have received since the death of our beloved mother. In her last few weeks we were overwhelmed by the wonderful care given by the Parameds, the Victorian Order of Nurses nurses and the tender assistance provided by Peggy Luxton's staff of Caring Hands. We will always be grateful to Dr. CHAN for the medical services he continued to provide for our mother. The floral tributes, donations, cards, gifts of food and other expressions of sympathy have been very comforting to us throughout this difficult time. We were deeply touched by the provision of a catered meal in our home courtesy of the culinary talents of Ruth BUTLER, May HOWES, Tina WATSON and Ben WILTON. Thank you to Rob Fawcett and his excellent team for their attention to every detail. We could not have asked for more consideration on our behalf. A special thank you to the staff at Hair Fair for styling mom's hair exactly as she would have liked, complete with the little net. Mother always wished her service to be conducted from Gentle Shepherd Church and her wish was granted with special gifts of beauty. We thank Pastor Ann GILLIES for her thoughtful message and her kind words of comfort, her son, Matthew, for his mastery of the sound system and the lovely harmony of Dianne CARLSON, Judy MacNEILL and Irene LITTLE, skillfully accompanied by Heather WIGHT. Krista BULLOCK's piano solo was a special tribute to her great-grandmother. We extend sincere appreciation to the Gentle Shepherd Women, under the capable coordination of Joan McGEE, for providing such a delicious lunch. Reverend PRINCE's visit to our home on Christmas Eve day will always be a treasured memory. Perhaps the best way we can thank this community in its entirety, is through Mom's own words which we recently discovered in a written message to her family, "God bless you all".

SINCLAIR, Robert James and Margaret and Donald
In remembrance of our father, Robert James (February 7, 1981), our brother Donald (January 27, 1986) and our mother, Margaret (December 31, 2005).
As the clock moves ever forward,
We look back in Time to see
The path of Life we travelled
As one loving family.
Then Death's footsteps walked beside us
And Life changed so drastically,
Our path has been divided now
For a quarter century
First Dad, then Don, was called upon
To take the road that bends
To the land known as Forever
With its path that never ends.
Short days ago Mom joined them
with her smile so sweet and dear
And she sends to us a message
To wipe away our tears.
"Don't cry for us," she whispers,
"For when your work is done,
One by one, you'll join us
In this land beyond the sun.
Beyond the moon and stars we live,
without a pain or care,
Be good, be brave, and just believe
That we'll be waiting there."
-Treasured in memory by the family and extended family of Margaret and Jim SINCLAIR, Ceylon, Ontario.

SINCLAIR--Bryden Walter Sinclair, April 3, 1973 - May 12, 2005. Bear Clan,
Berens River FN, Manitoba.
It's been a year since you've been gone. You've left your name and children
to carry on. I never pictured every minute without you in it. You left so
fast. Sometimes I can see you standing there or feel an Angel's touch and
know you're there. Your funny way and handsome smile - your cute chin and
your sparkling eyes. Always missed, but never far. For in memory, spirit and
heart you always live. You were such a kind, funny and loving man - always
willing to lend a helping hand. You did your best and were loyal too. You
hung on when things were rough - though to some that was never enough. You
loved to fish, drive trucks and hoped to be a linesman and fly planes too.
Well, I guess you've earned your eagle wings and I'll always pray to be with
you someday. In a place where we can love, where no one will even give a
shrug. You've gone into the Creator's world where there is only kindness,
love and acceptance too - for only the best is what you deserve. This little
script I write today, is to give love and honour to who you were. It gives a
glimpse into the dash between your DOB and passing date. People knew you as
"chin", "Mr. Bean," and "Rabbit" too. You were a loving partner and father.
A hard-working man with good old-fashioned values. You are sadly missed.
Left behind are sons Darion, Alistair and Richard with Karen. Sons Daniel and
Bryden II born October 2, 2005. Stepson Neeganie and fiancè Michelle. Love,
your girl, "Roadblocker". Always, Michelle.

When I am gone, release me, let me go. I have so many things to see and do. You musn't tie yourself to me with tears, be happy that we had so many years. I gave you my love, you can only guess how much you gave to me in happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown, but now it's time I travelled alone. So grieve a while for me if grieve you must. Then let your grief be comforted by trust. It's only for awhile that we must part, so bless the memories within your hearts. I won't be far away, for life goes on. So if you need me, call and I will come. Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near, So if you listen with your heart, you'll hear all of my love around you soft and clear. And then, When you must come this way alone, I'll greet you with a smile and say "Welcome Home"

WATERMAN, Margaret Elizabeth (née SINCLAIR)
Margaret Elizabeth WATERMAN, born on 21 February 1928 in Sarnia, Ontario to Laughlin Howard SINCLAIR and his wife Marguerite, died in St. Boniface Hospital, Winnipeg, Manitoba, on Monday, 27 February after a sudden and unexpected collapse on the evening of Saturday, 25 February. In May 2004, her physicians had diagnosed pulmonary fibrosis. Margaret was raised and educated in Ontario, graduated with B.A. with Honours in English in the University of Toronto, followed by a year at the Ontario College of Education. It was at Victoria College, Toronto, particularly in Annesley Hall where she resided for four years, that Margaret first developed her great gift of Friendship. Many of the greetings she received on her 78th birthday came from women she had first met sixty years before. Having taught at High Schools in Sault Ste. Marie and Newmarket, Ontario, Margaret married Anthony Michael Charles WATERMAN in Sarnia on 3 September 1955. She retired from teaching upon marriage, devoting the rest of her life to her duties as wife and mother in which she was exemplary, in volunteer work for church and community, in musical, literary and athletic recreations, and in maintaining a large correspondence with a continually expanding circle of Friends and relations in Canada, Britain, Australia, New Zealand and the U.S.A. She and her husband lived in Montreal for some years after marriage, moving to Winnipeg for the first time in 1959. At various times thereafter they lived for short periods in Canberra, Australia; Oxford, Brighton and Cambridge, England; and Boston, Massachusetts. They celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in Winnipeg, surrounded by children and grandchildren, and by many old and dear Friends. Margaret was a faithful Christian and long-time parishioner of St Aidan's Church in River Heights, serving at various times as President of the Altar Guild, member of Vestry, delegate to Diocesan Synod, Sunday School teacher, and convener or coordinator of Meals-on-Wheels, the quilting group, Bible study groups, the roster of lay liturgical readers; and many other similar activities which many take for granted but without which nothing happens. In the last week of her life she formally resigned her remaining parochial duties because of increasing disability. In her work for the larger community she was active for many years in the Cancer Society annual campaign and the Huntington Society; as a Board member of the Winnipeg Philharmonic Choir, the Winnipeg Youth Orchestra and the Winnipeg Bach Festival; and as an active member of the University Women's Club of Winnipeg. She served on the Board and other committees of her club, worked diligently at those of its activities directed to public service and education, and initiated a letter-writing group for Amnesty International. In none of these good works did she ever seek recognition or the applause of others, being ever content to work humbly and usefully behind the scenes for the good of all. Margaret also enjoyed the recreational activities of her club, especially its literary and dramatic discussion groups. Having a great love of walking, and encouraged by her female Friends in Cambridge and Australia, she founded a hiking group in the club which still flourishes. Vigorous and athletic, she played tennis and golf, swam, snorkelled and sur fed in the Pacific, and took frequent walking holidays with her husband and children in the Canadian Rockies, Scotland, Costa Rica, the U.S.A. and New South Wales. In her mid-seventies she climbed 3,000 feet from Lake Louise to the summit of Fairview. Margaret bore five children: Andrew, Margaret Anne who died in infancy, Michael, Caroline and Alice. In addition to her husband, four living children, children-in-law Kim, Ellen, Bradley BOYLE and Gavin FINNEY, and her grandchildren Nicholas, Elizabeth and Sophia Ciel, she is survived by her brother Tom SINCLAIR of Castleton, Ontario, her brother-in-law Peter WATERMAN of Bourne End, Buckinghamshire and by many cousins, nephews and nieces in Canada, Britain, Australasia and the U.S.A. She was admired by many and loved by all. The funeral will be at Saint John's Cathedral, 135 Anderson, Winnipeg, at 11.00 a.m. on Monday, 6 March, with burial in the Cathedral churchyard, followed by a reception in the Cathedral Hall. No flowers by request. Memorial donations may be made either to St Aidan's Anglican Church, 274 Campbell Street, Winnipeg R3N 1B5, or to the University Women's Club of Winnipeg, 54 West Gate, Winnipeg R3C 2E1.

An exemplary role model for his family always supportive of ideas and creative initiatives accompanied by unparalleled advice. He believed foremost in a lifetime commitment to education, reflecting often on his mother's quote, 'Achievement is only reached through effort, success is but the reward of struggle.'

Ian SINCLAIR, Last Of The Railway Titans: (1913-2006)
He ran Canadian Pacific almost single-handedly, operating the giant company at a time when it was still the most powerful corporate force in the country
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
He was Canadian Pacific's last titan. Ian SINCLAIR ran Canadian Pacific from 1969 to 1981, a time when it was still the most powerful company in the country and owned everything from the railway, a shipping line and a hotel chain, to an airline and oil-and-gas assets. In 1988, he was identified as one of six Lords of the Line, a book by writer-historians David Cruise and Alison Griffiths that put him right up there with the first presidents of Canadian Pacific Railway: George STEPHEN, William VAN HORNE, Thomas SHAUGHNESSY, Edward BEATTY and Norris Roy (Buck) CRUMP.
Ian SINCLAIR was a tough and demanding boss at Canadian Pacific Enterprises. "We don't go to work at Canadian Pacific, we report for duty," he once said and cracked down on office workers goofing off in the middle of the day. He did not want to see them loitering around the concourse of Windsor Station, the head office of the Canadian Pacific Railway. In his view, being seen in the favourite public gathering spot of the railway employees outside of lunch hour or coffee breaks could be a firing offence. Later in his career, he was known as Big Julie, but it's unlikely anyone ever called him that to his face.
Unlike many corporate leaders of the day, Mr. SINCLAIR was outspoken on public issues and even a bit of a Canadian nationalist. He got on so well with prime minister Pierre Trudeau that he was named to the Senate after he retired in 1984.
The empire Ian SINCLAIR ruled over had started out the Canadian Pacific Railway. The Canadian Pacific Railway picked up a lot of its assets in the 19th century, including a land grant of 25 million acres to build the railway. Much of the land was sold to settlers, but oil was later found on the railway's properties. Hotels were built along the way, as well as a shipping line to bring immigrants and goods to Canada. By the time he left, the railway no longer took passengers, the airline was gone and the company had strayed so far from its roots that it had invested in huge swathes of forest. The trees were a mistake but, even so, Ian SINCLAIR had increased the assets of the Canadian Pacific Railway and made it easier for the company to be broken into five pieces in 2003.
Mr. SINCLAIR rose to prominence under Buck CRUMP. Both men were tough and confident leaders of Canada's greatest company. Mr. SINCLAIR joined Canadian Pacific Railway in 1942 in Winnipeg. His father had come from Scotland to work in the repair shops of the Grand Trunk Railway, one of the railways that made up rival Canadian National. Ian SINCLAIR went to the University of Manitoba, where he took a degree in economics and then another in law.
His first job at the Canadian Pacific Railway was as an assistant solicitor and he quickly made his mark. Four years later, he moved to head office at Windsor Station in Montreal. Mr. SINCLAIR was known as the Perry Mason of railway law, for his resemblance to the burly television lawyer and for his dogged defence of railway interests in a series of royal commissions and tribunals.
At that time, it was still a railway world. Mr. SINCLAIR and other top executives would travel across the country in private railway cars kept on sidings in Windsor Station. Ian SINCLAIR straddled the era of the steam engine and the diesel locomotive a struggle with the unions over who was to man the trains was one of his great victories.
The job, as he saw it, was to get rid of firemen. Steam engines required an engineer to drive the train and a fireman to feed the boiler. With the end of steam and the introduction of diesel electric trains, there was no need for firemen, but the union contract still called for them. It was a textbook case of feather-bedding. Mr. SINCLAIR won his case against the unions and the firemen were gone. In 1960, he became vice-president of law at Canadian Pacific Railway. He was next put in charge of the operating and traffic departments, so that by the time he was made president in 1969 there wasn't a piece of the railway he didn't know. He was 52.
Mr. SINCLAIR was a textbook workaholic who read the Globe and Mail and Report on Business first thing every morning and loved his job. "Some people may think that work is distasteful, but not I. I'm very happy when I work," said Mr. SINCLAIR. To him, running Canadian Pacific Railway was a group exercise. "Sometimes, we have our disappointments and we back off and take another look. Then we solve something -- when we make it good -- that's when work's most enjoyable."There were many problems to solve at the start of his reign. Canadian Pacific Railway wanted to get out of the passenger business. People were using highways and planes to get around and railways across the continent were dying. As a result, Via Rail was born as a merger of the passenger services of Canadian Pacific and Canadian National.
That did not mean there weren't profitable parts of the business. In 1958, Canadian Pacific Oil and Gas, the predecessor to PanCanadian Petroleum -- later Encana -- was formed with the purpose of reassembling the land, which had been leased to oil companies.
Four years later, Mr. CRUMP created a subsidiary called Canadian Pacific Investments, which was given all of Canadian Pacific's non-transportation assets (a structure designed to keep those interests off limits when Canadian Pacific had to undergo review by federal regulators). The new subsidiary's mandate was to acquire and develop resource operations.
The chief architect in the execution of this was Mr. SINCLAIR, who oversaw a period of unprecedented growth at Canadian Pacific. At the start of 1970, Canadian Pacific's asset value was $2.2-billion. A decade later, it was $13-billion, a spectacular growth even allowing for inflation. In the same period, Canadian Pacific's annual revenues swelled to $10-billion from $616-million, moving Canadian Pacific to No. 1 from No. 6 in the corporate size sweepstakes.
And he did it all in a way that is denied today's corporate executives. David O'BRIEN, the last man to run the entire Canadian Pacific empire, said in 2001 that life was different for Chairman SINCLAIR.
"I knew Ian SINCLAIR when I was a young boy. I don't think he met with more than three analysts the whole time he was running Canadian Pacific," said Mr. O'BRIEN. " Now, they're banging down your door every day."
Though Mr. SINCLAIR became a politician late in life, he was often frustrated by politics. In particular, he disliked the victory of the separatist government in Quebec and how it had hollowed out the business centre of Montreal. One after the other, companies fled for Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.
Corporate chronicler Peter Newman told a story of visiting Mr. SINCLAIR in his office at Windsor station and interviewing him across the giant oak desk once owned by Sir William VAN HORNE, the man who built the Canadian Pacific Railway. Mr. Newman asked him about the corporate exodus from Montreal.
"What's left in Montreal?" bellowed Mr. SINCLAIR, pounding his desk. "This damn desk."
That gruff personality was usually misunderstood, his daughter, Christine SINCLAIR, said yesterday. "In fact, he was a shy person and had trouble approaching people unless he already knew them."
She said he enjoyed gardening, particularly roses, and revelled in chopping wood. "He loved to see a cord of word stacked neatly."
All things considered, Mr. SINCLAIR probably would have taken to retirement earlier if Mr. Trudeau had not come calling. In 1983, Mr. SINCLAIR was made Senator SINCLAIR, just as he was leaving Canadian Pacific after 42 years. He surprised many of his corporate Friends by supporting the National Energy Policy and fighting free trade. He said the Americans were protectionist.
Mr. SINCLAIR was one of the toughest businessmen of his generation, and one of the most colourful. He stood well over six feet and once weighed as much as 240 pounds, bringing columnist Allan Fotheringham to describe him as "a linebacker who stumbled into the chairman's office by mistake."
For that, he did commit some spectacular errors. The man who engineered Canadian Pacific's enormous growth also made giant blunders. Among his mistakes was a missed opportunity to buy MacMillan Bloedel in 1979. A proposed buyout of the forestry giant prompted a corporate brawl between premier William Bennett and Mr. SINCLAIR. "B.C. is not for sale," declared Mr. Bennett, who had visions that MacMillan Bloedel would become little more than a branch office of the Montreal company whose railway had opened up the West.
Years later, Mr. Bennett confided that Mr. SINCLAIR had rubbed him up the wrong way -- much too arrogant, he said.
Another mistake was Mr. SINCLAIR's 1981 attempt to buy Hobart Corp. of Ohio, the appliance maker. For years, Canadian Pacific had wanted to establish a manufacturing arm, and by all accounts it was to be the foundation of that core business. Reports at the time suggested Mr. SINCLAIR mishandled the situation.
For all that, he didn't make many mistakes in office. While other North American railways failed in the transition from steam, Mr. SINCLAIR did his job -- he made Canadian Pacific hugely profitable.
Ian David SINCLAIR was born in Winnipeg on December 27, 1913. He died on Oakville, Ontario, on April 7, 2006. He was 92. His wife Ruth died in 1994. He is survived by his four children, Ian, Susan, Christine and Donald.

SINCLAIR, Allan McDougal (1920-2006)
Feare no more the heate o' th' sun

Our beloved Poppa died at home on July 16, 2006. He served his country proudly as a soldier in World War 2, at Dieppe, in Normandy and in Holland and happily served the citizens of Toronto, in a job he loved, as a firefighter, then a Captain in the Toronto Fire Department. Throughout his life Allan lived in the present and spent little time talking about the past. His greatest joy was his family, his beloved Maud, his children Lynda (David) and David (Kathy), and his two grand_sons Jesse (Laura) and Amos, in whose love and admiration he basked from their infancy to adulthood. His close family included his nephew Michael (Vivien), and their children, and his sisters, Pat, Joan (Jimmy), Betty and Barbara. His unconditional love for those he cherished is his lasting legacy. We will miss his wit, his arcane intelligence and his very loud and joyous singing. Thanks to Doctor Russell GOLDMAN, Community Care Access, the Palliative Care Team, the Department of Veteran's Affairs and especially to Doug and Melanie, the kindest of neighbours. In lieu of flowers, donations in his name to the Veteran's Comfort Fund, Sunnybrook Medical Centre Foundation Toronto would be appreciated. We will celebrate his life on Thursday, July 20th at 1: 30 p.m. at the McLean House, The Estates of Sunnybrook, 2075 Bayview Avenue. www.estatesofsunnybrook.com.

Lister SINCLAIR: Broadcaster, Playwright (1921-2006)
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation personality and intellectual closely identified with the radio program Ideas loathed being called a Renaissance man, yet excelled at almost everything
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S11
Toronto -- His voice, writings and Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio plays were heard by Canadians for seven decades. In the end, though, Lister SINCLAIR was best known as the man who hosted Ideas for 16 years. Although he was part of a team, listeners thought of Ideas and Lister SINCLAIR as one, since his sense of curiosity and vast knowledge were reflected in the program.
Yet, he was more than that. To an earlier generation, he was the writer of more than 400 feature-length radio plays, and hundreds of other shorter works that ranged from wartime propaganda to children's stories.
In the early days, his plays were as important on radio as documentaries are today. In fact, the American magazine Variety, in describing one of his plays as "boffo," said it was as smoothly written as a documentary.
The play, Hilda Morgan, dealt with a young woman whose fiancé is killed in a car accident. She is pregnant, and her sister suggests an abortion -- without using the actual word. The play caused an uproar in the House of Commons, the type of outrage now reserved for documentaries that carry a definite message. It was Lister SINCLAIR's rule to "always be on the side of the victim."
Whenever reporters wrote about him, they always seemed to mention his age. At first, it was because he was so young for someone to have done so much. "At 27, Lister SINCLAIR is already well known as author, actor, critic, mathematician and linguist," said a publicity blurb in April of 1948.
Two years later, Time ran a piece on the "Bombay-born Lister SINCLAIR, 29, who had three of his original radio scripts dramatized on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Stage 50 last week."
By 1956, it was along the lines of "At 35, Lister SINCLAIR is one of the principal contributors to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's radio and television drama series."
Almost 40 years later, the air of amazement was still evident. In 1995, a profile in The Globe mentioned that, at 74, Mr. SINCLAIR had been at it for 50 years and "shows no signs of slowing down."
While he will always be associated with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation mainstream, Mr. SINCLAIR represented a kind of eccentric (he wrote most of his scripts longhand) who was almost a caricature of the professional intellectual. He called himself an "omnibrow," rather than a highbrow.
Over the years, he wrote many books and articles but was best known for the spoken word. With his beautiful voice, he could explain complex ideas in simple sentences.
The first time Canadians heard that voice was when he was acting on radio. Later, he hosted and narrated The Nature of Things he even came up with the name -- when it first went on television. In that same period, he also took a comic turn on Wayne and Shuster, the hugely popular comedy show. There he changed a bit, and chose to sound Canadian. He once described himself as "a pretty good second-rate actor. But unlike first-rate actors like John Drainie, I couldn't turn into someone else."
Lister SINCLAIR had an unusual start in life. He was born in India, but never really knew the place. His father, William SINCLAIR, was a chemical engineer working in India. At 18 months, Lister was sent home to Britain to live with an aunt. Years later, he said perhaps his mother had worried he might come down with tropical diseases.
His English aunt proved to be somewhat overprotective, even cruel. He did not see his parents again until he was 7, when they came home on extended leave. At 8, he was packed off to Colet Court, a boarding school that served as a feeder for the great English public school of Saint Paul's. Though young Lister did poorly at prep school, often coming last in his class, he was clever at math and won a scholarship to Saint Paul's. Among his fellow students were the grandchildren of Sigmund Freud, the family having fled the Nazis to settle in London.
Later in life, he told of a savage beating he suffered for talking back to a matron, a woman who worked at the school. One of the masters, her boyfriend, beat him so badly with a pool cue that he broke a bone at the base of the boy's spine. The master was fired over the incident.
Mr. SINCLAIR was bitter about his lost childhood, having been all but abandoned by his parents, yet never dwelled on it. He understood that, from their point of view, it was a great thing to be educated at one of Britain's top schools. Meanwhile, when he was not away at school, his aunt continued to rule his life and once refused to allow him to go on a supervised scout trip to France.
For all that, his parents did weigh in from time to time. In the summer of 1939, his mother, reassured by a travel agency that there wasn't going to be a war, arrived in England and booked a trip to New York to attend a World's Fair. They sailed on the Normandie, a luxurious French ship that was then the fastest liner on the North Atlantic run, landed in New York to see the fair and then headed for Buffalo, New York They were visiting Niagara Falls as part of a package tour, when Britain declared war on Germany. It was September 3, 1939, and mother and son were stuck on the wrong side of the Atlantic. The father was isolated in India, so the two of them set off for the West, first to Washington state and then north to Vancouver. They travelled by bus.
Mr. SINCLAIR enrolled at the University of British Columbia during his first week in Canada. To his Canadian classmates, he must have appeared rather odd (he walked with a cane and had a strange English accent), and yet at University of British Columbia he made some of his first meaningful Friendships.
"He seemed pretty old and knew everything," said Pierre Berton, a fellow student at University of British Columbia. "We always figured he swotted up on things the night before so he could tell us exactly what it was that Mozart had said to Beethoven. He was a non-stop talker and a very fast reader… he remembered everything he ever read."
Later, Mr. SINCLAIR went to the University Toronto to study for a master's degree and in 1942 he made extra money by teaching math to undergraduates and by acting at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. He was part of what became known as the "Vancouver Exodus" of young intellectuals who headed for Toronto during the 1940s.
At the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, he first wrote war propaganda, for there was no question of him joining the war effort. He was lame from a back injury -- not from the beating, but from falling down stairs -- which was why he walked with the aid of at least one cane. One of his first acting jobs was to imitate Germans in such works as Nazi Eyes on Canada. It was narrated by Lorne Greene, the chief announcer at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation who was known as the Voice of Doom, and featured actress Helen Hayes.
Mr. SINCLAIR soon began writing plays and he entered a period of great productivity. As a trained mathematician, he liked to say that math and drama had much in common. After all, both were the arrangement of ideas.
In all, he wrote more than 700 radio plays, some very ambitious. One of his favourites was about Socrates, the Greek philosopher.
"Of course he liked it," said a former Canadian Broadcasting Corporation colleague. "He was so much like Socrates -- someone devoted to teaching and talking. Socrates never wrote anything. Lister did, but it is nothing compared to the words he spoke in plays and on Ideas."
After radio, Mr. SINCLAIR moved to television, where he was sought after as a performer as well as a writer. He had to cut his hair, trim his beard and not dress like a bohemian. While many of his radio programs are on tape in the archives, his earlier television programs were broadcast live and vanished, unrecorded.
"I do wish I had more of these things on tape. One thing that I much regret, for example, is a television drama that, in fact, was one of my better television programs. It was called Beethoven. Lorne Greene played Beethoven before he left for Hollywood. But there was no kinescope [copy]. It's completely gone."
Pierre Berton, who died in 2004, told The Globe that Mr. SINCLAIR could have easily joined Lorne Greene and Canadians who went to Hollywood.
"I think he regrets that he didn't go to Broadway in the fifties. There was no theatre here to speak of when he was writing. He wrote wonderful [radio] plays. He got good reviews and an audience."
For a time, Mr. SINCLAIR considered trying his luck in London's West End but instead stayed in Canada, producing and writing a greater variety of material than perhaps anyone else in the country.
"I'm interested in pretty well anything, but finance is low on the list," he told The Globe. "I'm also not very interested in selling." Even though he knew his limitations, that was not enough to stop him from trying what he must have known he was not good at -- running things. Perhaps the strangest period of his long career was a spell in Canadian Broadcasting Corporation management. It read like one of his plays in three acts: the opening farce, the melodrama and the final tragic act.
It all began to unfold in 1968 when Laurent PICARD, an academic who later became dean of the Faculty of Management at McGill University in Montreal, was made an executive vice-president at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. In 1972, Mr. PICARD became president and decided he needed someone creative to run the network's English-language services. He fastened on Lister SINCLAIR and made him executive vice-president of English services.
Suddenly, Mr. SINCLAIR, a man who had never managed more than a small broadcast production, found himself in charge of a vast bureaucracy. A producer had never risen so high the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation hierarchy. "It was a disaster," said one of his Friends. "The rumour was, he went to Coles and bought a book on management. He was not suited to it."
Mr. PICARD soon realized his mistake and conflicts began to erupt. After two years, Mr. SINCLAIR was downgraded to vice-president of program policy and development. Two years later, he was out of management altogether and describing administration as "a branch of anthropology." It was the only period of his life that could be categorized as a failure.
He soon went back to doing what he did best -- writing, performing and producing programs, especially ones that dealt with difficult subjects. He became a frequent guest on Morningside at a time when the host was his friend Don Harron. Together, they did ambitious stuff, such as imaginary tours of 18th-century Venice, complete with the sound effects of oared gondolas.
At an age when many people start to think of retirement, Mr. SINCLAIR took on the job of host of Ideas. For 16 years, he was the voice for more than 2,000 programs, hundreds of which he wrote and produced himself. He was often late for recording sessions and, if the programs were his own scripts, he worked to the last possible deadline.
Mr. SINCLAIR was also a fixture on the program Court of Opinion and helped organize the Association of Canadian Television and Radio Artists. Now known as A.C.T.R.A., it represents thousands of Canadian performers.
His private life was sometimes as complex as his professional life. Lister SINCLAIR was married three times, and had several relationships that ran for years. He had two sons from different marriages, remained close to one but was estranged from another. He said he found family life difficult which, given his own formative years, is not surprising.
Soon after settling in Toronto, Mr. SINCLAIR and wife, Alice, whom he had met at University of British Columbia, became part of an artist's community in Kleinberg, north of Toronto.
"The community was called Windrush and the houses were designed by Bill McCROW, who was a set designer at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation," said Peter SINCLAIR, a technology entrepreneur who is his son from his first marriage.
Alice SINCLAIR lived in the house until her death and, although Mr. SINCLAIR moved out, he never went far. He made lasting Friendships in Toronto and was elevated to the status of national icon, a characterization he despised right along with the even more loathsome "Renaissance man."
Mr. SINCLAIR shed the awkwardness of youth and became an attractive, middle-aged man. Women were often intensely attracted by his casual style, diffident manner and quick mind. He lost little of his appeal in old age.
He was awarded the Order of Canada in 1985.
Lister Shedden SINCLAIR was born in Bombay on January 9, 1921. He died in hospital in Toronto yesterday. He was 85. He is survived by his sons Peter and Andrew.

'You'd believe everything he said'
The veteran Canadian Broadcasting Corporation broadcaster was known as a non-stop talker and an equally good listener, writes Guy DICKSON/DIXON
By Guy DICKSON/DIXON, Page R3
Lister SINCLAIR felt that all the talk about being a Renaissance man and a Canadian media icon, even after more than 50 years as one of the Canada's most prominent broadcasters, was something he really didn't want.
In an interview recorded last year, the writer and broadcaster, who spent five decades at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, said with an audible smile that any association with the Renaissance was code for being hopelessly emblematic of something long since past.
And all that icon talk? Well, that made him sound like an authority on things. "I don't wish to be an authority, because I know I'm not," he said.
No doubt many will view SINCLAIR's death yesterday morning at the age of 85 as the passing of a golden era for radio and television, a time when both were more conversational and, many will argue (including SINCLAIR himself, some say,) more substantive. It was a time when SINCLAIR the playwright, actor, writer, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation host, trained mathematician and all around polymath could simply sit in front of a television camera and talk about Einstein's theory of relativity and it would be a great broadcast.
But as it turns out, SINCLAIR didn't pine for that era.
"If you said to him, 'When was your golden age?' He'd say, 'This one right now.' To him, now was the golden age. He did not look backwards," said Sara WOLCH, a producer at Radio One's Ideas, who worked with SINCLAIR for 25 years.
Ideas had become SINCLAIR's signature show. The program has been airing Thank You, Mr. SINCLAIR, which continues tonight. (The tribute series originally ran last year, but has modified for this rebroadcast with SINCLAIR's death.) Wolch said it features interviews with SINCLAIR and excerpts from his long career: from acting in Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio plays during the Second World War to Ideas, and even his radio show on disco.
"One of the saddest things about him dying is that he always wanted to know, 'What next?' He had so many questions unanswered about the nature of the universe. He was interested in everything," Wolch said.
By the time she started working with him, SINCLAIR was already 60 and a broadcast veteran. After meeting at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and talking about various projects, they decided to rent a lecture hall and form a studio group in the early 1980s, a monthly weekend seminar for 30 people, ranging from a journalist and economist to a massage therapist to a singer of Schubert's songs, to discuss military history, the Romantics, the ideas of Charles Darwin, mathematics, physics, you name it.
"Lister only charged $30 per person per weekend," WOLCH added. "When you think now of all these salons that are starting up, where people pay a lot of money to chat for a weekend, we were doing this a long time ago for almost nothing."
Then there were similar, pan-topic discussions with more prominent people, such as Pierre BERTON, who met as students at the University of British Columbia. BERTON has in the past described SINCLAIR as a non-stop talker, but others note that SINCLAIR was an equally good listener.
Yet Elsa FRANKLIN, BERTON's long-time manager, joked that SINCLAIR's enthusiasms sometimes got the better of him.
"He had total recall. He had a photographic memory. He had a beautiful voice, of course. And he spent all his money. He never had a penny," she said. But "I have a daughter who's a physicist. She teaches at Harvard. They'd get together, and she'd say to me, 'He really doesn't know that much about physics.' He could talk and he knew so much that you'd believe everything he said. Sometimes you did catch him.
"He was extraordinarily curious and had a tremendous knowledge. He awed most people because of that," she added. FRANKLIN had originally met SINCLAIR when he taught at Lorne Greene's Academy of Radio Arts in Toronto.
Then there were SINCLAIR's lunches with Conrad Black. "Twenty five years ago or something, Conrad Black had phoned me up and said, 'Do you know Lister SINCLAIR? He's my intellectual hero, and I've never met him, and could you arrange a lunch,' " remembered writer, broadcaster and former Canadian Broadcasting Corporation chairman Patrick WATSON. All three had that lunch in one of Black's corporate board rooms. WATSON later wrote about it in his autobiography, and Black chided him for doing so.
WATSON and Black then bumped into each other in June this year, "and after we joked about it, Black said, 'We should reconvene the lunch.' And we do. Those two guys just went at it about European military history until your head was spinning." This was in July. "It was just great to be a spectator at that one," WATSON said.
But even though SINCLAIR was "a powerful intellectual, he was also a populist. And he wanted to make ideas and a penetrating view of the world available to the widest possible audience," WATSON said.
Similarly, WOLCH noted that "he profoundly believed that the people who listened to our programs were smart, but perhaps not necessarily in the subject area that we were discussing that night."
That notion of making the material accessible was very important to SINCLAIR. "We would pass drafts of the script back and forth, back and forth, constantly editing and rewriting to get it just right. He had no ego whatsoever when it came to editing his writing."

MacFEETERS, Diana Louise (née HAMILTON)
(January 5, 1925-December 7, 2006)
Her determination to live life to the fullest after a paralyzing stroke in 1998 was inspirational for all who knew her - but eventually she succumbed to additional strokes. Left to mourn her passing and celebrate her life are her husband for over 55 years Ronald, daughters Laura (Duncan SINCLAIR) of Whitehorse, and Sheila (Michael WILLIAMS) of Toronto, and sister Elizabeth HAMILTON. Pre-deceased by her brother David. Joyous and adventurous times with Grannie will always be remembered by Lindsay, Caitlin and Brooke SINCLAIR, and Rob and Andrew WILLIAMS. Diana graduated from Bishop Strachan School and initially studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Toronto, but after service in the Red Cross Transport during World War 2 she switched to Commerce and Finance (class of '49) and started a lifelong involvement with Kappa Kappa Gamma. Before marrying Ronald in 1951 she worked at Hamilton Gear and Machine Co., but from her early days with the Toronto Junior League Diana made volunteerism her career of choice. Over 40 years she developed great Friendships on the Travel Committee and in the Reproduction Shop of the Members' Volunteer Committee at the Royal Ontario Museum. She was was also a member of The Current Events Club and The Ladies Club. Since 1998 Diana lived at Central Park Lodge Thorncliffe where she was an active participant on various committees. She was able to spend many weekends with Ronald and caregiver Sandra RHODES at Timbertop in the hills of Mono, and she enjoyed every possible opportunity for summer trips to her 'spiritual home' at Go Home Bay. In recent years Diana worked diligently towards her goal of walking again, and got great encouragement and much pleasure from the calls and visits of Friends. Those wishing to make a fitting memorial to her could call or visit someone they know who is not well or is feeling sad. Cremation has taken place. Friends are invited to share memories at the York Club (northeast corner St. George and Bloor) on Tuesday December 12 from 3-5 p.m.

Legendary broadcaster 'knew everything'
Lister SINCLAIR was voice of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Ideas
Also gained fame as prolific writer for radio, television
By Bruce DEMARA, Entertainment Reporter with files from Canadian Press
To his colleagues and many listeners over the years, he was the man who knew "everything."
Lister SINCLAIR, who hosted Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Ideas for 16 years until his retirement in 1999 and spent more than a half-century with the public broadcaster, died yesterday in hospital at 85.
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation producer Elsa FRANKLIN, a long-time producer and business partner of author Pierre Berton, recalled SINCLAIR as one of Berton's best Friends; the two men first met at University of British Columbia.
"He (SINCLAIR) had total recall, a photographic memory, he knew everything and he had a wonderful voice," FRANKLIN said.
But SINCLAIR was more than a voice to thousands of listeners over the decades. He was a prolific writer of television and radio plays. One play, Hilda Morgan, generated huge controversy including an uproar in Parliament -- in 1949 because the heroine was pregnant, unmarried and considering whether to end her pregnancy.
In 2002, SINCLAIR was named a Masterworks honouree for his body of work by the Audio-Visual Preservation Trust of Canada, a charitable organization dedicated to the preservation of Canada's broadcast and music heritage.
He was made an officer of the Order of Canada in 1985.
SINCLAIR also spent time as host of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television's The Nature of Things and appeared on Front Page Challenge, Telescope, Horizon, Festival, Court of Opinion, Wayne and Shuster and Morningside.
He served briefly as executive vice-president of the network in 1972 before returning to production.
He was also a leading force behind the creation of what is now known as the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists.
SINCLAIR was a keen student of science, especially physics, and a skilled mathematician with degrees from the University of British Columbia and Master of Arts from U of T. He was also an avid birdwatcher.
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation producer Max ALLEN, who worked on Ideas during SINCLAIR's tenure and even afterward, said he was not the sort to welcome retirement.
"(He had) to keep going. It's like riding a bicycle; if you stop, you fall off," ALLEN said.
As recently as last year, SINCLAIR was giving lectures on creativity as part of the University of Toronto's continuing studies program and touring with pianist Gloria Saarinen to support his multimedia production, North America in Picture, Poetry and Piano.
ALLEN also remembered SINCLAIR as a "well-turned out" and dapper dresser and "an old-fashioned gentleman of the sort there aren't many of any more."
"This makes him sound like some sort of stuffy pedant. In fact, the most striking thing about him was his charm and his humour," ALLEN said.
"He was not awe-inspiring; if awe means fear, it was not the case with Lister at all. He was the kind of person you'd want to have lunch with. He was quite modest and charming. He didn't spend a lot of time showing off," ALLEN said.
"He was a great teacher. He thought he was a teacher because sharing information is what he did," ALLEN added.
SINCLAIR's knowledge of "everything" was so extensive, ALLEN recalled, that he corrected on air a typographical error in a script he hadn't read in advance, correctly detailing the time it took for sound to reverberate in the famous Chartres Cathedral.
"He would save our ass on scripts because he knew everything. As far as any of us can tell, he remembered everything he'd ever read. He was deeply and broadly smart," ALLEN said.
Bernie LUCHT, his long-time friend and executive producer of Ideas, called SINCLAIR "simply a remarkable man."
"He felt the job of humanity was to find out what it was about, what we were about and what our surroundings -- the universe into which we had been born -- were about," LUCHT said.
"His public and his colleagues just loved him. He was an enormous talent," said Faith SINCLAIR, his third wife, with whom he shared a relationship for more than 40 years.
"I know only one other person as curious as Lister and that's myself. I think that's why we clicked," she added.
FRANKLIN agreed SINCLAIR's thirst for knowledge was insatiable.
"He never had any money (because) he spent all the money on books and things like that," FRANKLIN said.
Sadly, his wife and colleagues say that SINCLAIR had a "very, very tough upbringing."
Born in Bombay, India, now called Mumbai, he was sent to live in England by his Scottish parents at the age of 18 months and raised by a strict, unsympathetic aunt, Faith SINCLAIR said.
At boarding school and later at Saint Paul's School in London, he was emotionally and physically battered, something he never shared because he was "a very private man," Faith SINCLAIR said.
ALLEN said SINCLAIR once told him that upon his arrival in Vancouver at the age of 19 just as World War 2 was beginning, SINCLAIR immediately saw this country as his home.
Thrice married, SINCLAIR is survived by sons Peter and Andrew and numerous grandchildren.
Ideas began airing a three-hour tribute to SINCLAIR last night, continuing tonight and tomorrow on Radio One. A memorial event is planned to be held at the Canadian Broadcasting Centre in the future.
