'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.

Police urge caution after boating deaths
By Caroline ALPHONSO with a report from Canadian Press, Page A10
Police are advising people to take additional precautions when swimming and boating after several accidents in Ontario marred the first long weekend of the mild season.
On Rice Lake, near Peterborough, the bodies of two missing boaters were found yesterday after windy conditions forced them, along with five others, to abandon their boat Sunday afternoon.
Police recovered the bodies of Albert CHOW, 51, of Stouffville, and Duylunong DIEP, 54, of Richmond Hill, not far from where their boat went down, bringing the death toll in the accident to three. The body of Holland CHOW, 54, of Richmond Hill, was found Sunday by rescuers near Harwood.
The men were part of a group of seven who were fishing Sunday when their boat was hit by high waves and began to sink, police said. The four others, all from the Greater Toronto Area, swam to shore.
Ontario Provincial Police Constable Dana MELLON said that those venturing out on the water should be cautious, especially around this time of year.
"You certainly have to use some common sense. The water at this time of year is quite frigid," Constable MELLON said. "If you are going to be out in a boat, you should certainly have your life jacket on."
The seven people were not wearing life jackets at the time of the accident on Rice Lake. They started to put them on only after the boat started filling with water, Constable MELLON said.
"I'm a boater myself," he said, "and even in warm water, trying to struggle into a life jacket once you're in the water is extremely difficult."
Earlier yesterday, police using a helicopter, divers and a canine unit searched the waters for the two missing boaters, focusing on the area where the boat sank.
At the time, police said the prospect of finding the boaters alive was slim because the water was choppy and frigid.
The Rice Lake accident was among several in Ontario on the Queen Victoria Day long weekend. The weather was unseasonably cold and wet, bringing rain and, in some areas, snow.
Police were looking for a canoeist missing on Black Bay, near Thunder Bay. The search began after two men did not return from their trip on Sunday. One of the canoeists, however, was found in good condition after an overturned boat was spotted.
In another incident, a man is presumed drowned after a canoeing accident northeast of Madoc. His canoe overturned in Wolf Lake and he wasn't wearing a life jacket, police said.
