The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

Frank WATKINS, Royal Canadian Air Force Officer (1915-2005)
Pilot who won the Distinguished Flying Cross for flying missions over Germany was sustained by writing 258 letters home. When it came to wartime morale, few things were more important
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S9
Ottawa -- Fighting hard to keep his sanity amid so much death, Frank WATKINS wrote hundreds of emotional and poignant letters to his wife during the Second World War. The young Royal Canadian Air Force flier's correspondence paints a fascinating portrait of a man thousands of miles from home trying to both do his duty and stay alive.
During the long months they were apart, Mr. WATKINS, a bomber pilot, wrote his bride Charmian 258 letters that told how he cherished her and the pain he felt at losing Friends. Writing every three days on the flimsy, blue airmail paper typical of the time, Mr. WATKINS began and ended every letter with a simple and heartfelt declaration: "I love you, I love you, I love you."
The couple married in Edmonton on March 22, 1943, two months before Mr. WATKINS shipped out to Britain. He was 27. After that, their only link was the mail. Canada's postal authorities -- both military and civilian -- handled millions of letters, postcards and parcels during the war. If humanly possible, the mail got through. When it came to morale, few things were more important.
In his letters, Mr. WATKINS not only told his wife about everyday squadron life but used them as a therapeutic safety valve to express his emotions. On June 13, 1944, in letter No. 224, he described his grief over losing his mentor, a wing commander. "He was the finest fellow I ever met and I a.m. going to miss him terribly. I know that even the best can be shot down but somehow I felt he would go on operating as long as he cared. He only had a few more trips to do…"
Then Mr. WATKINS told his wife how happy she made him. "Thank heaven we were married before we parted. If it hadn't been for the fact that I knew I had your understanding and love and respect I would have thrown in long ago."
Life wasn't all doom and gloom. In letter No. 247, written on August 12, 1944, he described shaking hands with the King. "After, there was a tea and they introduced men from each station to the royal party."
Mr. WATKINS closed that letter with a plea not to "stop praying and believing. I'm not through my tour yet and as the number [of missions] to do get smaller they seem to get tougher. God willing, we shall share the future."
Frank WATKINS joined the Royal Canadian Air Force on January 7, 1941. It took almost three years, but he eventually made it overseas after earning his wings. Known as Highpockets because he was 6 foot 4, he first flew with 428 Squadron. One day at the end of 1943, he and his crew had a narrow escape when a German fighter attacked their Halifax. "We did not see the fighter and were raked with cannon shell," Mr. WATKINS said. "The rear gunner was badly wounded but continued to advise [me] on evasive action and we finally shook the fighter off."
That was the good news. The bad news was that his aileron controls had been shot away, the elevator wires were cut in two and the hydraulics, undercarriage and flaps were useless. Fearing the worst, the crew prepared for a crash landing, but Mr. WATKINS managed to land the aircraft safely.
In March of 1944, he was promoted to squadron leader and posted to 434 Squadron. Just three months later, on June 11, five days after D-Day, he was promoted to wing commander. The squadron was in the thick of things, bombing the Germans' flying-bomb sites in northern France, plus oil storage depots, freight yards and coastal batteries. In August, the squadron flew 1,206 hours on 246 sorties for 19 bombing operations, dropping 2,149,670 pounds of high explosives and incendiaries. The cost came in casualties: 484 men killed or missing in a 20-month period.
Death could occur any day, yet Mr. WATKINS wrote that he had no regrets. "I have missed you terribly. But I could never have known any peace of mind if I had stayed at home and not taken my share of the work. A fellow owes it all to his Friends who have gone before him. I will feel I have done my duty. I hope this doesn't sound heroic. God knows, I have no illusions about dying for any great cause. There's nothing glamorous about being killed in an aircraft. When I come back I'll be wiser, more understanding. And I will come back. Don't ever worry about that."
On August 16, 1944, with his 30th and last mission still to come, he wrote that he got a "small measure of satisfaction of having successfully bombed [his] targets and, more important, getting away with it despite flak and fighters and weather and searchlights. It was quite an experience and, although I think it's changed me in a lot of ways, I'm not sorry I have had it."
A month after that, he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross.
After the war, Mr. WATKINS decided to stay in the Royal Canadian Air Force. Over the next 21 years, he occupied many senior positions and commanded two stations, Royal Canadian Air Force Station Rockcliffe, in Ottawa, from 1955 to 1958, and Royal Canadian Air Force Station Namao, outside Edmonton, from 1964 to 1966. After retiring in 1967 as a group captain, he worked for the Department of Regional Economic Expansion.
Francis Hubert WATKINS was born on August 13, 1915, in Winnipeg. He died on December 21, 2005, in Ottawa. He was 90. He leaves his daughter Melissa, sons Christopher and Michael and his brother Stanley. He was predeceased by his Charmian, his wife of 55 years.

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".

ROTHERNEL, Max
I would like to thank so many people who helped our family emotionally, financially, physically and your prayers. Thank you to Searra BROWN, students and staff at Wiarton High School; Kelso Villa, staff at Zellers, Owen Sound; T.G.I.F., Three Friends Cafe, Sheer Styles, Sears, Balloon Headquarters, Mysteeks, The Triangle Discount, The Bargain Store, all of Wiarton. Max has touched us all in so many special ways, either by those big blue eyes, or the many funny faces, or the language he spoke all the time that only he knew what it meant. The little games he'd play, like clear the table for mommy, or horsey ride with daddy or the smile on his face when mommie would get his favourite book, and they'd read it together - priceless. Then Max and dad on guitar, the pride in dad's eyes watching his son pick away. The biggest smile in the world and always opened arms. Max made everyday count and never left a toy untouched. If anyone ever had the privilege of meeting Max's parents, they would soon see why this little boy was so happy and full of life. Words cannot express just how this little boy touched my heart. But, I can thank my daughter Arryn and my son-in-law, Jim for giving us all such a precious gift. Although Max was with us for only 14 months, he gave me a lifetime of beautiful memories. He will always be my sunshine.
- Cheryl WATSON, Max's grandma.

Breeder's death shocks industry
Charles WATSON was known for his Charolais herd out of Wat-Cha
By Bill HENRY, Wednesday, November 22, 2006
One of Ontario's most prominent cattle breeders based in southern Grey County has been killed at one of Canada's foremost cattle shows.
Charles John WATSON, 54, of Mount Forest, was found dead late Sunday night on the grounds of the Western Canadian Agribition in Regina. He may have been crushed by some sort of heavy equipment, Regina police spokeswoman Elizabeth Popowich said Tuesday.
The Mount Forest-area cattle breeder was best known for the important Charolais herd developed over the last 30 years at the Wat-Cha Land and Cattle Company.
News of WATSON's death has left people in Canada's cattle industry in a state of "shock and devastation," Doctor Bryan HICKS, the president of the Canadian Charolais Association, said Tuesday. He said it will leave a hole within the industry and have a big impact on the breed.
HICKS was at several major shows with WATSON over the last month in London, Ontario, at The Royal Winter Fair in Toronto, and at major shows in Edmonton and Saskatoon. He returned to his home in Arthur a week ago, while WATSON carried on to Regina with 17 prize show animals.
"This is an incredibly negative impact on the whole industry, to lose someone so prominent," HICKS said. "I'm very, very, sorry this happened - to anyone, let alone someone who is this prominent in our industry."
HICKS said WATSON, a seventh-generation farmer who took over Wat-Cha farm from his father several years ago, was one of Canada's foremost breeders, producers and promoters of Charolais cattle and several other breeds he raised. He frequently produced significant championship animals.
A bull bred and raised at Wat-Cha farms was the grand champion a year ago at Regina's Western Canadian Agribition, one of the country's most important shows.
This year, WATSON was somehow killed at the same event on Sunday night.
Regina police answered a call at 11: 47 p.m. when a man was found on a roadway between Agribition buildings at Ipsco Place, reported injured or possibly deceased. The man was taken to hospital in Regina where he was pronounced dead.
The area outside the barns where WATSON was found was cordoned off with yellow police tape Monday as officers continued to investigate, The Canadian Press reported. Officers were using vehicle accident reconstruction techniques to examine the site.
"Our investigators are certainly pursuing the possibility that he may have been crushed by a piece of heavy equipment," police spokeswoman Popowich said.
News of WATSON's death rocked the close-knit cattle industry and cast a sombre pall over the annual Regina event, The Canadian Press reported.
Regina police issued a news release Tuesday identifying the victim as Charles WATSON, who "suffered massive internal trauma consistent with being crushed by a heavy object."
Police are still investigating and have appealed to thousands of visitors to the Agribition who may have been operating equipment in the area or seen someone doing so at the time.
Wat-Cha farms has been a prominent North American producer of Charolais cattle for many years, and at one time exported animals to 18 countries.
Charles WATSON, Sr., the father of the man killed Sunday, made news in the industry by shipping planeloads of his cattle to both Russia and China several years ago. He was also a pioneer in embryo transplants, which he began in 1971.
Charles WATSON, Jr. was well regarded within the industry for carrying on the family's reputation for quality cattle since he took over the operation several years ago.

WATSON, Berva
In loving memory of Berva WATSON who passed away April 7, 2001.
If remembrance brings you closer,
Then you never went away,
For thoughts of you are with us,
Each and every day.
There will always be heartache,
And those often silent tears,
But there are always precious memories,
Of the days when you were here.
You are held close within our hearts,
And there you will remain,
To be with us throughout our lives,
Until we meet again.
Sadly missed by Gerald, Sandra, George and family.

Canada's anti-smoking face succumbs to lung cancer
By Canadian Press, Tues., May 23, 2006
Toronto -- Heather CROWE, considered by some to be the face of Canada's anti-smoking movement, has succumbed to lung cancer in Ottawa at the age of 61.
The longtime restaurant server is widely known for television ads in which she tells how she contracted cancer from second-hand smoke at the restaurant where she worked.
CROWE's death comes just one week before the Smoke Free Ontario Act goes into effect.
The act will ban smoking in any enclosed public places and add restrictions to the promotion, handling and display of cigarettes in stores.
Jim WATSON, the Liberal member of provincial parliament for Ottawa-West-Nepean, was a frequent customer at the restaurant where CROWE worked and calls her the "matriarch of the anti-smoking movement."
He said CROWE told him she really wanted to live to see the anti-smoking legislation come into effect.
"It's very sad she's not going to be here to see it, but she should be very happy that because of her influence, Ontarians will be able to breathe easier as a result of the legislation on May 31," WATSON said.
He said CROWE was an unlikely activist. "She fell into this anti-smoking passion because she experienced first-hand what so many people have suffered over the years."
CROWE was the first person to win an Ontario Workers Safety and Insurance Board claim for full compensation because her cancer was caused by occupational exposure to cigarette smoke.

WATSON, John
In loving memory of our son and brother, John, who passed away one year ago, June 4, 2005.
In a quiet country graveyard
Where the gentle breezes blow
Lies our John we loved so dearly
Whom we lost one year ago.
Our lives go on without you
But nothing is the same
We have to hide our heartache
When someone speaks your name.
You did so many things for us
Your heart was kind and true
And when we needed someone
We could always count on you.
Sad are the hearts that loved you
Silent the tears that fall
Living our lives without you
Is the hardest part of all.
Sadly missed by Mom, Dad, Mac Jr., and Deb WATSON; Mary Ann and Ron DOWN and families; devoted friend Jake

As President of The Veterans' and Community Residents' Council for a total of 10 years, he brought about many changes that improved the lives of his fellow comrades -- especially 'Bullet' (the bus he was told would never materialize).

Many thanks to Lorrie CLARKE and Sue WATSON for their guidance in these endeavours which brought him much pleasure. Art received excellent care on unit K2 East under the management of Suzanne PLOWMAN. The family is so grateful for all that was done to keep him comfortable during difficult times.

Brian NOLAN: Producer, Teacher And Writer (1932-2006)
With his friend Peter JENNINGS, he was among a corps of Canadian broadcasters who took American networks by storm. He returned home to help transform the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and to teach at Carleton University
By F.F. LANGAN, Page S11
Toronto -- Brian NOLAN was only a few metres away when Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald in the Dallas police station at 11: 26 on the morning of November 24, 1963. He was the CTV field producer working with Peter JENNINGS, then a 25-year-old reporter, and cameraman Larry Brown.
It was one of the most dramatic moments in the lives of the three men who had rushed from Ottawa to Dallas to cover the assassination of U.S. President John Kennedy. Their work soon found Mr. JENNINGS and Mr. NOLAN working for ABC News in New York. They were in the vanguard of many Canadians who worked in U.S. television news. Their training and, for on-air people, their neutral accents made Canadians ideal candidates for the Am-Nets, as the American networks are known in the television biz.
On some assignments, their Canadian passports did not hurt either. One of Mr. NOLAN's big television scoops was the Soviet suppression of Prague Spring -- the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in August of 1968. He and a German cameraman, Jorg Weiland, filmed Soviet tanks in the streets of Prague and managed to get their footage over the frontier when it was closed to all other crews. Anchored by Mr. JENNINGS, it was broadcast from ABC's London bureau as a U.S. television exclusive.
Mr. NOLAN's career included much more than a four-year stint with a U.S. network. He was a pioneer in television news in Canada and worked for all three Canadian networks: the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation -- where he was a producer on This Hour Has Seven Days in the mid-1960s -- CTV and Global.
In 1972, he wrote the Nolan Report for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation News in which he suggested changes that had already been adapted by U.S. networks, such as the use of satellites to bring news material from overseas instead of shipping reports by air. "It is inconceivable that the corporation would demand that its radio news service collect overseas news by mail instead of using transoceanic circuits," Mr. NOLAN wrote. "In essence, this is what the present policy demands of the television news service."
Many of his suggestions were subtle, such as the use of actuality sound from the field instead of silent footage or, even worse in his view, phony sound effects. Most were ideas that could come only from someone with a real understanding of television news. "Almost all his recommendations came to pass. He was quite prophetic," said Bill CUNNINGHAM, a foreign correspondent and chief news editor of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation at the time.
A true television pioneer, Mr. NOLAN was a field producer before anyone even came up with the name. A field producer travels with a camera crew and a reporter to make editorial decisions, and also figures out such logistical problems as how to get the footage to a "feed point" where it can actually make it on to a newscast.
"NOLAN almost invented the job of field producer. And he was one of the first television producers to use the bird [satellite] on a daily basis to put Peter JENNINGS on the air from London for the ABC nightly newscast," Mr. CUNNINGHAM said. "He was known to be so honest that producers from the other networks trusted him to run the satellite pool feeds because they knew he wouldn't cheat them out of their satellite time."
Brian NOLAN grew up in Hamilton, Ontario His father, Joe NOLAN, was a plumber and a local legend known as Pike who played for the Hamilton Tigers, as one of the two professional football teams in the city was known at the time.
As a young man, Brian joined the U.S. Army "for the adventure," as he later told one of his sons. His unit was about to be shipped to Korea when he was plucked out of the infantry and given a job of writing for Stars and Stripes, the U.S. military newspaper. He did end up in the Korean War, but as a solider-reporter rather than as a combatant.
In 1953, he returned to Hamilton to settle into his old life and wonder what to do next.
"He was sitting in a pool hall reading a book when one of the regulars came over to him and said 'I've never seen anyone in here reading. Do you want a job at a newspaper?' " said his son Philip, in recounting the family legend of how his father landed his first newspaper job. "He started work at The Hamilton Spectator."
Mr. NOLAN stayed at the Spectator for three years as a police reporter, sports reporter and general news reporter and the left to work for the Hamilton radio station CHML. He liked to tell a studio story about one night in February of 1959 when a plane crash killed the rock 'n roll stars Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper, a Texas disk jockey turned singer whose real name was Jiles P. Richardson. Mr. NOLAN had wanted to break into the regular programming to make a news flash, but the sportscaster, an older man with no appreciation for young rock stars, refused. By all accounts, something close to a fist fight occurred before the bulletin finally went to air.
In 1961, Mr. NOLAN moved to his first television job and joined CTV News, which produced its national newscast out of CJOH in Ottawa. It was there that he teamed up with the young Mr. JENNINGS. They travelled all over North America with forays into Europe.
One of Mr. NOLAN's first big stories was the building of the Berlin Wall. As field producer, he also doubled as a second cameraman, carrying a Swiss-made, 16-mm Bolex camera. It was lightweight and held just a little more three minutes worth of film, but its quality added something to his reports. On November 29, 1963, Mr. NOLAN, just back from Dallas, took his Bolex to Ste. Therese, Quebec -- just north of Montreal -- to film The wreckage of a DC-8 there. Later, he and journalist Patrick WATSON made a documentary of the crash that killed 118 passengers and crew.
When Mr. JENNINGS made the jump to ABC News, Mr. NOLAN didn't follow right away. He enjoyed working on This Hour Has Seven Days, co-hosted by maverick broadcasters Mr. WATSON and Laurier LaPierre. The program was irreverent and quite unlike anything seen on television. It caused such controversy -- especially in Parliament -- that it lasted only two years.
"Brian started at the beginning of the program, making short and long documentaries. He came to story meetings with great ideas that were almost always accepted," Mr. WATSON said.
After Seven Days, Mr. NOLAN went to ABC News as a senior producer and moved to New York with his family.
"As soon as he started working for ABC News we hardly saw him," said his son Philip, who expresses no bitterness. He and his two brothers are now camera operators for television news. "One night the phone rang. He put it down and said 'You're not going to believe this. They shot Bobby Kennedy.' He was gone for a week."
A short while later, Mr. NOLAN moved his family to London. He was made senior producer for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. It was during this period that he produced many of Mr. JENNINGS's news reports and handled the complexities of early satellite feeds to New York.
In 1971, he left ABC News and returned to Canada. He wrote the Nolan Report and, a short time later, went to Global television where Mr. CUNNINGHAM had become vice-president of news. One of their coups was a 90-minute documentary called The Last Nazi. It was about Albert Speer, Hitler's architect and the man who ran Nazi Germany's armaments program.
"CUNNINGHAM and NOLAN just picked up the phone and called Speer and got the Canadian television rights for his autobiography," recalled Mr. WATSON, who was the writer and interviewer on the program. "They called me and asked me if I would work with them. And Brian and I were off to Europe for several weeks."
The documentary won many awards in Canada and was nominated for an Emmy in the United States.
After he left television he took up teaching and writing. In 1978, he took a job at the school of journalism at Carleton University and remained there for 18 years. More recently, he indulged an interest in military history and wrote seven books, including a well-received biography of Buzz Beurling, the enigmatic Second World War fighter pilot from Verdun, Quebec He also wrote a biography of Donald Brittain, the legendary documentary filmmaker from the National Film Board.
In his later years, Mr. NOLAN showed an entrepreneurial streak and, with his wife Holly owned a mustard shop and a restaurant in Ottawa. Last week, a wake was held at the restaurant, which is called L'Ange, on the Sparks Street Mall.
Brian NOLAN was born in St. Catharines, Ontario on January 18, He died of lung cancer in Ottawa on August 31, 2006. He was 74.
He leaves his wife Holly, a daughter Catherine and three sons, Philip, Mike and Paul.

'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."

Many thanks to Lorrie CLARKE and Sue WATSON for their guidance in these endeavours which brought him much pleasure. Art received excellent care on unit K2 East under the management of Suzanne PLOWMAN. The family is so grateful for all that was done to keep him comfortable during difficult times.
