Dr. Bill SIBBALD, 60: Intensive Care Unit pioneer
Physician-in-chief at Sunnybrook also noted scholar
'But his greatest achievements were with his family'
By Tanya TALAGA, Health Reporter
A doctor with the soul of a teacher, a father who took great joy in his five children and his medical students, Doctor William (Bill) John SIBBALD thrived on pushing forward those who dared to dream.
SIBBALD was a founder of critical or intensive care medicine in North America -- a pioneer of setting up intense medical units to treat fragile patients recovering from traumatic accidents, exhaustive surgeries or life-threatening disease.
As physician-in-chief at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, SIBBALD also presided over the hospital's critical care unit, which is one of the largest in Canada, with almost 120 beds.
Surrounded by family, SIBBALD, 60, died of cancer at home Thursday, just days after he resigned from his position at Sunnybrook.
"I have met few scholars in medicine with his breadth and boundless curiosity," said Doctor David NAYLOR, president of the University of Toronto.
The two men were Friends for nearly 20 years.
"Bill SIBBALD was an international giant in critical care medicine truly one of the pioneers in the field."
Long before it was fashionable, SIBBALD was drawing together physicians, surgeons, anesthetists, nurses and others and creating a team-based approach to treat medically fragile patients, said NAYLOR.
"He built the Critical Care Trauma Unit at Victoria Hospital, now London Health Sciences Centre, into a magnet for trainees from around the world."
The author of countless academic papers and the editor of many books, Doctor SIBBALD's research interests and output was simply, "extraordinary," said NAYLOR. " Toronto was fortunate to recruit him."
SIBBALD graduated from the University of Western Ontario's medical school in 1970.
He went on to specialize in internal medicine.
A passionate physician with a love of learning, SIBBALD held a variety of leadership positions at London, Western, the University of Toronto and at Sunnybrook.
"I'm glad people know of his international achievements," said his son Robert SIBBALD. " But his greatest achievements were with his family. That's what he focused on."
SIBBALD and his wife Connie spent most of their lives in London, Ontario, where they worked and raised a family of five. SIBBALD refused all offers from big health centres and universities in the United States because he wanted to keep his then-young family in London.
"He worked some pretty crazy hours but he still found time to coach myself and my brother Martin in hockey," said Robert.
Leaving London was difficult for the SIBBALDs, but when the children grew older and there was the chance to come to Sunnybrook and the U of T, the family took it.
"He had a brilliant mind," said Leo STEVEN, Sunnybrook's chief executive officer. "Whenever I met him, he'd be going a mile a minute. He was constantly thinking of ways to promote medicine."
Enquiries, tributes and emails from colleagues all over the world have been pouring into Sunnybrook during these past few days, said Sunnybrook's Doctor Robert FOWLER, who is SIBBALD's friend and colleague.
Hospital staff are mourning his passing; the critical care unit he loved so deeply has been a "somber place" of late, added FOWLER.
The chance to work with SIBBALD was largely the reason FOWLER came back to Toronto from Stanford University in northern California.
"He really had this genuine passion in what he did and it was infectious. He could spend five minutes with someone and he could fire them up to take on the world."
Team building to care for patients and mentoring medical students, health-care staff and aspiring leaders was a lifelong interest of SIBBALD's.
Those who knew him regard this as one of his greatest strengths.
"He made people more productive and enthusiastic about their own lives," said FOWLER.
In his quest to educate the public on the importance of critical care medicine, SIBBALD was extremely supportive in providing the Toronto Star exclusive access to Sunnybrook's staff and medical units. The Star series "Situation Critical" was published last November.
SIBBALD continued his position at Sunnybrook until his illness made it impossible for him to continue working.
"He died at peace, surrounded by his family, after a very courageous two-year battle with cancer," said NAYLOR. "I miss him."
Friends may call at the Trull "North Toronto" Funeral Home and Cremation Centre (2704 Yonge St.), today from 6 to 9 p.m. Funeral service will be tomorrow at St. Clement's Anglican Church at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to the Sunnybrook Foundation, 2075 Bayview Ave., Toronto, Ontario, M4N 3M5.

'One of the great journalists of the day'
By Caroline ALPHONSO, Page A2
One of Canada's pre-eminent journalists and a long-time columnist for The Globe and Mail has died.
George BAIN, an elegant writer and The Globe's first Ottawa-based columnist, died in his sleep yesterday morning. He was 86.
Mr. BAIN was remembered by his son and former colleagues yesterday for his letters from Lilac, Saskatchewan., columns and his strong opinions about the Liberal government, especially former prime minister Pierre Trudeau.
Geoffrey STEVENS, a former managing editor, described him as "witty, strong-willed [and] absolutely determined in a lot of things that he said.
"He wasn't always right, but he was never in doubt," Mr. STEVENS said. "He was just one of the great journalists of the day."
Mr. BAIN began his career in journalism as a copy boy with the Toronto Star. He then worked as a reporter, columnist and editor for several newspapers, including The Globe and the Toronto Telegram. At one point, he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force and served as a pilot, flying against targets in Germany, Italy and Sicily.
But Mr. BAIN is best known for his work in journalism and his passion for the craft.
The floor of his Ottawa office was littered with balls of yellow copy paper. Mr. BAIN would start typing, be unhappy with what he had just produced, crunch it up and throw it over his shoulder, Mr. STEVENS recalled.
"George was a terrific writer. He was also quite independent in his views, quite irascible from time to time -- and courageous," he said. Mr. STEVENS said that although the newspaper may have supported the government of the time, Mr. BAIN didn't: "He was the journalist who stood up against the use of the War Measures Act in 1970 at the time of the F.L.Q. crisis," he said.
One of his most-remembered columns among former colleagues was when he used the word "fuck" -- the first time the word was ever used in The Globe. Several Conservatives had accused Mr. Trudeau of mouthing "fuck off" when a member of that party had directed a question about unemployment to the prime minister. Mr. Trudeau denied it, saying he had said "fuddle-duddle" instead. Mr. BAIN challenged the attitude and character of Mr. Trudeau. Soon after the column appeared, the editor at the time, Richard DOYLE, let other writers in the newsroom know that they weren't free to use the word whenever they felt it necessary.
This was not Mr. BAIN's only run-in with the late prime minister.
His son, Christopher, recalled a time when Mr. Trudeau was arriving in his limousine to pick his father up for an interview. When they had reached a stoplight, Mr. BAIN "just couldn't stomach this guy," Christopher said. He asked the driver to let him out of the car and he abandoned the interview.
Christopher BAIN has many amusing stories to tell of his father. One of his favourites is about their home in Rockcliffe. The house has since been torn down and replaced by another home. The current owners are none other than Jean CHRÉTIEN and his wife.
"I think it's kind of a cool twist that George, who was never a great fan of the Liberal government and wrote a number of columns slagging CHRÉTIEN's predecessor and idol, Trudeau, and CHRÉTIEN himself, well, CHRÉTIEN now finds himself living on the foundation of one of his greatest critics," Christopher BAIN said.
After working at various papers throughout his career, Mr. BAIN became the first dean of journalism at University of King's College in Halifax. He enjoyed teaching, and "he had a number of students that really loved him too," Christopher BAIN said.
Mr. BAIN and his wife bought property in Mahone Bay, just outside Halifax. Despite suffering from Alzheimer's disease, he continued his writing. He was the author of five books, and won the Stephen Leacock Medal for humour.
Says Mr. STEVENS: " Because he was the first Globe columnist in Ottawa, he was looked up to. He had a terrific influence as a result and everybody wanted to know what George BAIN was going to say about this, that and the other thing."
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday in Mahone Funeral Home, Mahone Bay.

MERCIER, Ronald Francis (1943-2006)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ron MERCIER on April 15, 2006. He is predeceased by his wife Jacqueline MERCIER (née MURPHY,) and is lovingly remembered by his son Marc and daughter-in-law Shelley (Toronto, Ontario), daughter Tammy and son-in-law Peter (Halifax, Nova Scotia) and daughter Tracey (Vancouver, British Columbia,) their mother Hélène STEVENS (nee COOMBS,) sister Eleanor ROSS (Fenwick, Ontario) and brothers Larry and Shawn (Cranbrook, British Columbia), Wayne (Timmins, Ontario,) mother Agnes MENARD (Fenwick, Ontario) and grandchildren Anique, Alexander, Emma and Aerin. He will be sadly missed by all his family and special friend and partner, Leslie ROBERTS. Ron was born in Montreal, Quebec on March 22, 1943 and grew up in Timmins, Ontario. He had retired from Ontario Hydro where he had been employed for 34 years. An avid hockey, baseball and football player and devoted fan (especially the Montreal Canadiens), with a great sense of kindness and humour, he loved to tell stories about his life in Timmins and his years of dedication to Ontario Hydro. Ron's greatest love was for his family with a special and unconditional love for his children and grandchildren. They will all miss dearly their Dad and Grandad! Special thanks are extended to the nurses and physicians who cared for Ron in Intensive Care Unit East and 6 South at Hamilton General Hospital. All the staff were exceptionally professional and caring to Ron and the family during his and their time of need. For that, the entire family is extremely appreciative. Family will be receiving Friends on Friday, April 21, 2006 from 6: 00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Murray E. Newbigging Funeral Home at 733 Mt. Pleasant Road, Toronto (south of Eglinton Avenue). A celebration of Ron's life will be held for family and close Friends on Saturday, April 22, 2006 in the Newbigging Funeral Chapel at 1: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, charitable donations may be made in the name of "Ronald Francis MERCIER" to either the Canadian Cancer Society (1-888-939-3333) or the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario (1-888-473-4636).
