He worked for Bell Canada for 40 years and in retirement, started a second career as a professional fundraiser. Joe received the 20 year service medal from the Boy Scouts after serving as a Scouter and District Commissioner during the 1950's and 60's. In 1965, he was elected as a trustee and vice-chair of the Etobicoke Board of Education. In the mid 60's, he began his long career in the Liberal Party - an extended family in which he was for decades a respected fundraiser and organizer (including his adventures as an advance man for Pierre Trudeau in the 1968 election). Joe became President of the Toronto and District Liberal Association in 1970 and of the Liberal Party of Ontario in 1972. He ran twice as a Liberal candidate: in the 1975 provincial election in York West and in the 1980 federal election in Etobicoke Centre.

Joe was a longtime Kiwanian, serving as Lieutenant Governor of Eastern Canada and the Caribbean and as President of the Kiwanis Club of Toronto. His lifelong passion for jazz led him to be a founding member of the Classic Jazz Society of Toronto and to enjoy many visits to New Orleans, Grossman's, the Collector's Congress and Sam's. In 2002, Joe's outstanding service to the community was recognized with the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal.

CRUICKSHANK, " Cubby"
In memory of a loving husband, father and grandfather, "Cubby" who left us four years ago today, February 9th, 2002.
Life is a journey
It has a beginning
And it has an end.
You were my soul companion for 47 years.
It is lonesome here without you
And some days I feel I can't go on.
But then I think of our two wonderful sons,
Bill and David, and I know they miss you as much as I do.
So until the time comes when it is my turn
I will carry on knowing that you will be waiting
for me and we will be together again.
Until then, loving you today, tomorrow and forever, wife Jean, sons Bill, David and their families.

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.
