Chatham man stabbed to death
By Debora VAN BRENK, Free Press Reporter, Mon., October 30, 2006
A Chatham man is dead of multiple stab wounds after an after-hours house party turned ugly yesterday.
Chatham-Kent police said 26-year-old Ryan Ervin STEELE of Chatham was stabbed in front of a home on Park Street in Chatham's east end at about 4: 30 a.m. yesterday.
STEELE was taken to hospital but died of his wounds.
A suspect was arrested about 10 a.m. and is expected to be in court this morning to face a first-degree murder charge, said Chatham Police Insp. George FLIKWEERT.
He would not identify the suspect.
sources identified a man in custody as Mark LIST, Jr.
FLIKWEERT said numerous people had gathered at the Park Street home, where neither the victim nor the suspect was a resident, after the bars had closed yesterday.
"There were indications that the individuals had been at one of the nightclubs in town and there was a gathering at this particular place on Park Street," FLIKWEERT said.
FLIKWEERT said STEELE was stabbed several times and someone made a 911 call.
Police have interviewed more than a dozen people, seized a vehicle and cordoned off the east Chatham house. They also seized a weapon.
An autopsy is to take place in London today. One media report said STEELE was a father-to-be, with his girlfriend three months pregnant.
The co-founder of a group that has strived to reduce crime in east Chatham said the stabbing is an anomaly. "This isn't the norm anymore," said Marjorie CREW of East Side Pride.
A candidate for municipal council, CREW said the reality and perception of east Chatham "are really improving. We're not looking at this as a setback.
"It doesn't matter where it happened geographically. It's still tragic."
She said so-called after-parties -- gatherings that take place after the bars close -- often end up at homes elsewhere in Chatham-Kent.
"The after-parties have always been a concern because of what usually goes on there -- drinking and so on.
"It's like an uncontrolled environment," she said.

Murder charge laid in Chatham shooting
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter, Tues., October 31, 2006
A first-degree murder charge was laid yesterday in the weekend stabbing death of an expectant father described by kin as "a super guy."
Ryan STEELE, who would have been 27 next month, was stabbed outside a Park Street house in Chatham's east end early Sunday.
He leaves behind a girlfriend three months pregnant.
"Ryan was a very, very nice guy," Dennis STEELE said of his son, who worked at the International truck assembly plant. "He's going to be missed."
Though they rarely spoke of the excitement of impending fatherhood, Dennis STEELE says it was obvious the young couple was thrilled to be having a child.
"Just seeing their faces -- he was very excited about it, with this new baby coming on," he said.
People were at the Park Street home after the bars closed Sunday morning, police said.
STEELE was stabbed several times about 4: 30 a.m., police said.
Chatham-Kent police were still interviewing witnesses: yesterday, Const. Doug GUTTERIDGE said. Official autopsy results weren't known.
STEELE, who lived in Oakville in his high school years, grew up dreaming of playing professional baseball and the sport remained a passion, Dennis STEELE said.
The funeral is tentatively scheduled for Friday.
Mark LIST, 23, of Chatham has been charged with first-degree murder. He made his first court appearance yesterday.

Murray LISTER, Royal Canadian Air Force Air Vice-Marshal (1912-2006)
In 1966 he was rising to the top of his cherished Royal Canadian Air Force when he resigned to protest against Ottawa's plan to unify the military and outfit Canada's Armed Forces in lamentable green serge
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S8
Ottawa -- Murray LISTER was a man of integrity. In 1966, as an Royal Canadian Air Force air vice-marshal in charge of Air Defence Command, he quit rather than stand by and watch Paul HELLYER unify Canada's armed services. Defying the minister of national defence in 1966 came at a very high price for Mr. LISTER, whose responsibility is was to defend Canada against aerial attack by the Soviet Union. Unlike hundreds of other senior officers, he deliberately refused to follow Mr. HELLYER's dictatorial party line and lost his promotion to air marshal, at that time a rank equivalent to an army lieutenant-general.
Mr. LISTER's decision took many by surprise, since he was fifth from the top of the Royal Canadian Air Force's seniority list, but he never regretted following his conscience at such a great personal cost, his son, Murray, said. "He was a man of principle and the main principle he followed was duty. He declined promotion and accepted early retirement on the principle of duty toward the traditions and morale of the air force."
The trouble had started after he made his feelings known. He believed that while the traditions of the Royal Canadian Navy and the army were important, those of the Royal Canadian Air Force were unique. "He didn't want any service tradition to be diluted," his son said. "He felt that the effectiveness of each of the three services was built on morale. There was no point in destroying this morale."
One day in mid-March of 1966, during the height of the unification crisis that gripped Parliament and the country, Mr. LISTER was summoned to Ottawa and found himself on the carpet. Air Chief Marshal Frank MILLER, the chief of the defence staff, accused him of criticizing unification in speeches to subordinates.
Fortunately, Mr. LISTER's aide, retired squadron leader Robert FLYNN, had taken notes on what his boss had actually said. "While he did not 100-per-cent support the concept, he impressed those over whom he had command that it was his and their duty to respect and honour the political directives. It was a very uneasy and stressful time for him, but he weathered the storm," Mr. FLYNN said.
Mr. HELLYER's ambitious drive to create one service from the navy, army and air force, unveiled in 1964 in a government white paper, created enormous controversy. Mr. HELLYER insisted his dual plan of integration and unification would save millions of dollars that would be better spent on new equipment, but many saw it as a direct attack on the military's cherished, British-based traditions. Thousands of sailors, soldiers and airmen were appalled that Mr. HELLYER wanted to scrap their traditional uniforms of navy blue and army khaki and replace them with a common green serge. Sailors and airmen would wear army ranks on their sleeves.
Mr. LISTER was a strong supporter of integration, which sought to eliminate costly triplication such as separate personnel and supply systems. If he'd decided to put his career before his principles, there's no telling how high he might have risen, since Mr. HELLYER desperately needed senior officers to toe his party line and take over from those who decided to resign.
Mr. LISTER, known as a strict disciplinarian, had a strong streak of stubbornness, his son said. "His sense of duty came from his mother, who was very strict herself and brought him up that way. He had enormous willpower. He used logic in arguing and was quite an intellectual. He was a super-achiever."
Tragically, the stress of coping with unification may have affected Mr. LISTER's first marriage to Janet RICHMOND, their daughter Sydney said. Her parents were divorced in 1971 after 32 years of marriage. Still, there was plenty of hope and happiness at the beginning, she said. "My dad always told us how much fun she was, how talented she was… It was a love story."
After graduating from the Royal Military College of Canada in 1935, Mr. LISTER flew fighters with the Royal Canadian Air Force. He and his bride of four months happened to be in England when war broke out on September 1, 1939. Naturally, he thought he'd soon be flying against the German Luftwaffe, but brass had a better appreciation of his talents.
A week later, he was recalled to Canada and put to work organizing all bombing and gunnery training facilities for the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. Dubbed the "Aerodrome of Democracy," Canada built an enormous network of training bases that, over the next five years, trained 131,500 aircrew from the British Commonwealth and Allied nations. Overall, the Royal Canadian Air Force grew dramatically to 215,000 men and women and 88 squadrons.
Promoted to group captain in 1943 at the early age of 31, Mr. LISTER tried to get overseas to fly on operations but never made it, his son said. "He was too valuable. That bothered him to the end of his life, [since] his first love was flying."
The closest he came to going operational was to command Station Tofino, British Columbia, an air base that flew long-distance anti-submarine patrols far into the Pacific. His 1944-45 posting earned him a mention in dispatches: "By his ability and outstanding devotion to duty he has raised the standard of this unit to a high pitch of operational efficiency."
After the war, Mr. LISTER filled four key positions as the Royal Canadian Air Force expanded dramatically to 52,000 men and women. In 1954, he was appointed chief of plans and intelligence. In 1958, he was appointed deputy vice-chief of the Royal Canadian Air Force and chief of training, a job that gave him and his wife Janet -- known as a gracious hostess -- a high profile on Ottawa's diplomatic cocktail circuit.
In 1960, Mr. LISTER went to Colorado Springs where he spent four years at North American Air Defence Command as deputy chief of staff, operations. Mr. LISTER played a key part in organizing North American Air Defence Command, an agency set up to protect North America from air attack. He had a first-hand view of the Cuban missile crisis that brought the United States and the Soviet Union to the brink of nuclear war in 1962.
Jaye LISTER, then 14, still remembers the worries she experienced when her father didn't come home for four days. It was the height of the Cold War and nuclear conflict seemed a horrible possibility for millions. "We had a red phone in the master bedroom, a direct line to North American Air Defence Command headquarters. One morning I asked mum where Dad was. Her reply was, 'I don't know. The red phone rang and your father left. I don't know when we'll see him.' We had no contact with him at all."
In 1964, Mr. LISTER took command of Air Defence Command, which included squadrons of CF-100 and CF-101 fighters. Mr. FLYNN remembers his boss as "a very demanding person yet very patient and understanding. He had a great sense of humour yet was a no-nonsense type. When toughness was demanded he could dish it out, but always in a human and respectful manner. [He] treated me, as he did everyone, with human understanding."
After retiring from the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1966, Mr. LISTER became a gentlemen farmer, growing apples and wheat and raising sheep and cattle on a farm near Picton, Ontario In 1997, more than 50 years after he had last flown an aircraft, Mr. LISTER took to the sky one last time as a pilot. Although by then blind in one eye, he made a "beautiful flight," an observer said.
"[It's] exactly like riding a bicycle," Mr. LISTER said at the time. "You never forget. Everything felt very natural. It was tremendously exciting."
Murray Duncan LISTER was born on January 17, 1912, in Edmonton.
He died of pneumonia on January 7, 2006, in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario He was 10 days short of his 94th birthday. He leaves his wife Elizabeth DAILLEY, son Murray, and daughters Sydney and Jaye. He also leaves stepdaughters Elizabeth and Lynne.

Herbert WHITTAKER, Theatre Critic And Writer: (1910-2006)
He discovered theatre in London as a boy during the First World War and was forever smitten by a love for the stage
By Alex DOBROTA with files by the late Donn DOWNEY and Jan WONG, Page S9
Toronto -- He imagined himself a war correspondent on a battlefield, writing about costumed soldiers that bled emotions on a stage. But the struggle that Herbert Whittaker documented and supported for almost half a decade was a real one. As The Globe and Mail's emeritus drama critic until 1975, Mr. WHITTAKER found himself on the front lines of the creation of a distinct Canadian theatre.
And much like the war correspondent who sometimes feels compelled to pick up a rifle in the thick of battle, Mr. WHITTAKER never shied away from using his pen to forward the cause he embraced since early childhood.
"Canadian critics tend to be crusaders," he wrote in a 1985 article. "Their very occupation determines this."
Indeed, when Mr. WHITTAKER, a tall and courtly man, started his career at the Montreal Gazette in 1935, theatre was not high on the national agenda. The country had to survive the rest of the Depression and the Second World War before Canadian theatre came of age in 1953 with the Stratford Shakespearian Festival.
It opened in a big tent and Mr. WHITTAKER was there on behalf of The Globe. He had been with the paper for just four years. "The most exciting night in the history of Canadian theatre," he wrote after the festival's first production, Richard III.
His enthusiasm did not diminish over the years. When he retired, Mr. WHITTAKER was invited to Stratford to accept a gift from the festival. He was offered a prop from any of its productions and, in a rare moment of practicality, he chose the sword used by Alec Guinness, who appeared as Richard in 1953. "I knew his sword, being a hard object, was likely in good repair," Mr. WHITTAKER said. He also wanted something that was closely associated with the event.
Some said Mr. WHITTAKER's reviews were too kind -- less than satisfactory for the theatregoer who wanted to know if a play was worth the price of a ticket. But Toronto readers had the advantage of placing his review alongside the one in The Toronto Star. Its critics, most notably Nathan COHEN, had the reputation of being cold and analytical, and the intelligent reader learned how to strike a balance between the two.
Mr. WHITTAKER offered further reasons to explain the differences. The Star was then an afternoon paper so it could not echo The Globe's review, which appeared in the morning. And Mr. WHITTAKER tended to put positive impressions in his first paragraphs. The Star tended to do the reverse. "I was trying to build up Canadian theatre," Mr. WHITTAKER said in a 1999 interview.
He covered drama with the zeal of an evangelist, showing up at The Globe in the early afternoon to write a chatty, name-dropping column or a weekend feature. He would then return in the evening, Sundays included, to write a thoughtful review for a deadline usually less than an hour away.
The computer had not come of age and his typewritten copy looked like a crossword puzzle with unreadable inserts scribbled in by hand. The reviews were the dismay of the copy editors but represented, given the time constraints, a minor journalistic miracle.
While he covered the theatrical mainstream, he paid equal attention to the smaller theatres, where he would see untried, but promising, Canadian performers and, quite frequently, a play that was making its Canadian debut. He also drew no distinction between amateur and professional performances. "In certain instances, some of the best work is done by amateurs," he said.
Herbert WHITTAKER fell under the spell of stage performance as a boy growing up in London, England. With his family, he moved there before the outbreak of the First World War and events had transpired to keep them on the wrong side of the Atlantic until peace returned. Pantomime fascinated him, as did the antics of Elsie Janis, the musical comedy star who entertained British troops.
After the war, Mr. WHITTAKER's family returned to Montreal, where the theatre scene offered little or no Canadian content and most productions were imported from England or the U.S. With great delight, Mr. WHITTAKER discovered John Martin-Harvey's rendition of Hamlet, an experience that would leave an indelible mark on the rest of his life.
"Young as he was, these experiences shaped his critical standards throughout his career and it is remarkable how often his reviews harken back to Martin-Harvey…" Anton Wagner wrote in Establishing Our Boundaries -- English-Canadian Theatre Criticism.
But for all his love of drama, Mr. WHITTAKER shunned the stage, opting instead for positions as speech writer and art director during his school years at Strathcona Academy in the Outremont neighbourhood of Montreal. As a boy growing up in Outremount, he once played the Toff, a crime solver, in a performance staged in the hall of a local church -- an experience he qualified as the peak of his acting career. He was never seen on a theatre stage again. "I was too shy," he said. "Then I got tall and gangly and started wearing these glasses."
He dropped out of school around the age of 16 to help his family make a living during the harsh years of the Depression. He took up a job as an office clerk with the Canadian Pacific Railway in Montreal's Windsor Station.
But his fascination with theatre never subsided.
"I'm afraid I cheated the Canadian Pacific Railway, for I eventually discovered that by going down to the stacks to search out invoices, I could find time to design costumes for church plays," he would later write in a book about the Montreal theatre scene.
He quit his job in 1935. That same year, he started working at the Gazette as a junior critic who was responsible for just about everything.
And by the late 1930s, he was directing plays in Montreal, taking some of them to the Dominion Drama Festival. He was also designing sets for Montreal productions.
When the Second World War broke out, the army rejected him for military service, mainly because of his less-than-perfect eyesight and because of his somewhat frail physical condition,
"As WHITTAKER recalls, he was rejected for military service," University of Waterloo English professor Rota LISTER once wrote. "[He] did not much care whether it was because he had diminished eye sight, a weak heart or varicose veins; he was simply relieved and let his soldier brother defend the values of civilization while he battled on for Canadian theatrical culture."
For all that, he viewed his work as a theatre critic for The Gazette as a contribution to the war effort. He praised the verve of two Canadian troop shows meant to entertain Allied soldiers, Meet the Navy and Army Show. "His wartime reviews do not seem out of place in The Gazette of the time, rubbing shoulders with news flashes from the front and wartime propaganda," Mr. Wagner wrote.
In 1949, Mr. WHITTAKER joined The Globe as its theatre and film critic and began his long association with the University of Toronto as a director and designer.
At times, he reviewed the plays he directed. In 1950, for instance, he worked on the set design for Going Home, a play written by Morley Callaghan and performed by the New Play Society. He later reviewed the performance for The Globe and Mail. The article's last line read: "The settings were adequate."
He might have chosen either critic or designer as a career but thoughts of a regular pay cheque decided the issue. The remuneration for a designer or director was, at best, a modest honorarium, while newspapers put their contributors on a payroll -- $35 a week to start, in Mr. WHITTAKER's case.
His salary must have improved over the years because when he arrived in Toronto he discovered there were few restaurants that matched what he had grown accustomed to in Montreal. Winston's was one of the few exceptions and Mr. WHITTAKER adopted it. The actors who were appearing at the Royal Alexandra Theatre down the street followed suit and it became the restaurant of the celebrities.
The names of the theatrical giants fell easily from his lips. He said the actor Sir John Gielgud helped him get the job with The Globe by describing Mr. WHITTAKER as "the only intelligent theatre critic in Canada." The favourable notice from Sir John came after Mr. WHITTAKER had bestowed a favourable notice for one of Sir John's performances.
In 1961, Mr. WHITTAKER designed the sets for the 1961-62 season of the Canadian Players, an offshoot of the festival that toured Canada with the classics and provided winter work for some Stratford performers.
King Lear was included in the company's season and Mr. WHITTAKER, who had designed Lear productions twice before, decided to move the play out of ancient Britain into a Far North setting. The set design was serviceable, a bare-bones portable affair that relied on colour to match the mood of the play.
Over the years, Mr. WHITTAKER's name was attached to countless productions as either the director or designer. He had a separate career as an adjudicator with the Dominion Drama Festival's regional festivals and other productions. The Encyclopedia Britannica and the Encyclopedia Americana both asked him for special articles which he supplied.
He was also a frequent recipient of theatrical awards and picked up honorary doctorate degrees in arts from York University and McGill University in Montreal.
In 1976, he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada. The accompanying citation read: "actor, adjudicator, director and drama critic, whose contributions to the theatre in Canada are legion."!
Long after he retired, Mr. WHITTAKER continued writing theatre reviews and other various articles for The Globe and Mail, The New York Times and the Herald Tribune. He also authored or co-authored as many as six books, including one about Winston's, the restaurant he so often frequented.
And, in the early 1980s, he shouldered the task of founding the Theatre Museum of Canada. "Nobody could talk to him for more than 30 seconds without talking about the theatre museum," recalled Kate Barris, now the museum's president.
The museum was established in 1992 and, over the following years, Mr. WHITTAKER would donate much of his memorabilia collection hundreds of items that included play bills, portraits of artists and even Alec Guinness's sword.
"Theatre was his life," said Kate Barris, the museum's president. "He had many Friends but his main love was the theatre."
In 1999, Mr. WHITTAKER wrote Setting the Stage, which documents Montreal English theatre from 1920 to 1949. The book opens with a sentence that could very well encapsulate the driving force behind its author's career: "In many countries, no matter how thinly populated, no matter how widely scattered across a continent, people must eventually produce their own theatre, as objects on a landscape must produce their own shadows."
But for all his love for Canadian theatre, Mr. WHITTAKER also enjoyed Western European productions. In his free time, he travelled to England, France and Spain in search of the local flavour producers and theatres bring to classical plays there. In one 1978 adventure unrelated to theatre, he visited China at a time when outsiders were seldom seen. His experiences left him somewhat rueful: "A much-travelled man may be a well-travelled man but not necessarily a man who travels well," he later wrote in an article in The Globe that appeared under the headline "What went wrong."
Herb WHITTAKER never married. Before he moved into a retirement home in 2003, he spent two years at Toronto's Performing Arts Lodge on The Esplanade, where married couples are allocated to two bed-room apartments. Mr. WHITTAKER was hoping for an extra room to use as his study. He argued his case, telling staff that he was married to his work. "He only got one bedroom," said Ms. Barris. "It didn't work."
And, as Mr. WHITTAKER's living quarters shrank, the museum's collection swelled with his donations. He kept his typewriter, though, which often clanked away in his room as he crafted letters to Friends and acquaintances the world over.
Well into his 90s, Mr. WHITTAKER continued to attend theatre performances. He was a familiar sight at Toronto premieres and at theatre festivals in Stratford and Niagara.
In 2002, when he attended a Chekhov play at SoulPepper Theatre Company, director Albert Shultz led the crowd in a standing ovation to mark Mr. WHITTAKER's 91st birthday.
"He was quite moved," Ms. Barris said.
By all accounts, he last saw a play the following year when he watched Richard McMillan perform in Through the Eyes at The Factory Theatre Company. Soon thereafter, his frail health confined him to his retirement home on St. George Street, where he continued reading theatre reviews.
"Herb's passing really marks the end of a certain generation in Canadian theatre," Phillip SILVER, Dean of the Faculty of Fine Arts of York University wrote in a statement. "He had a view of our history that no one else will ever have. And on top of that all, he was truly a gentleman."
Herbert WHITTAKER was born in Montreal September 20, 1910. He died of natural causes in Toronto on Saturday.
