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.

Esteemed lawyer, former Attorney General dies at 72
Talented orator suffered stroke
Introduced pay-equity law
By Tracey TYLER, Legal Affairs Reporter with files from Robert BENZIE
Ian SCOTT was a brilliant, charming, supremely confident overachiever who captivated the courtroom with his eloquence and wit. In his next act, as Ontario's reform-minded attorney general, he redefined the qualities expected from the person who holds that job.
But in one of life's cruel twists, at the prime of his life, a debilitating stroke robbed SCOTT of his ability to speak. And for the next 12 years, the man considered one of the country's most gifted lawyers and orators battled back, drawing on the same studious determination that characterized his legal career.
"He was a remarkable person, a tortured guy in some ways, but a beautiful human being," said former Ontario premier David PETERSON.
SCOTT, 72, died at his Toronto home early yesterday. He'd battled a variety of ailments in recent weeks, but after an extended stay in hospital he returned home. True to form, SCOTT, a voracious reader his whole life, insisted during his dying days that his sister read him excerpts from a recent memoir written by Eddie Goldenberg, political adviser to former prime minister Jean Chrétien.
SCOTT considered his time as Ontario's attorney general, between 1985 and 1990, the best job he ever had. As usual, he was centre stage.
"He was a real busy bee around government," PETERSON said yesterday. "I very much valued his judgment and he was a very, very, very powerful minister."
At Queen's Park, Premier Dalton McGuinty interrupted proceedings to announce SCOTT's death. Attorney General Michael Bryant said Canada has lost a legal legend.
"Everybody was in gobsmacked awe of the man.
Progressive Conservative Leader John Tory, who worked with SCOTT as a young lawyer, paid tribute to his friend as a "wonderful, courageous, funny, smart, dedicated man."
There were high expectations riding on SCOTT when he sailed into office.
But the lustre quickly tarnished when PETERSON's Liberal government, in one of its first acts in office, announced plans to abolish the honorary designation of Queen's Counsel, long considered a form of patronage.
The initial huffing and puffing gave way to mixed reviews of SCOTT's performance. There were notable successes. He took steps to rid the judicial appointments process of patronage, setting up an independent advisory committee to screen candidates.
SCOTT introduced pay-equity legislation and waged a successful battle over full funding to separate schools.
But Ontario was rapidly acquiring a reputation for the longest trial delays on the continent. SCOTT was convinced the solution wasn't more money and judges, but a restructuring of the entire system. He locked horns with the judiciary over a move that merged three court levels into two.
"He was a reformer at heart and he wanted to make a contribution," said Toronto lawyer Chris PALIARE, one of SCOTT's former articling students and law partners. "If that meant merging the courts and offending some superior court judges, so be it."
SCOTT had a privileged Ottawa upbringing and seemed destined for a career in law. His father, Cuthbert SCOTT, was a leading intellectual-property lawyer. His great-grandfather, Sir Richard SCOTT, a member of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's cabinet, was responsible for the Scott Act, a temperance law.
The eldest of six, SCOTT displayed first-born, overachieving tendencies from the start, said his younger sister, Martha.
In high school, SCOTT joined a debating league in an effort to overcome a childhood stammer. That, in turn, revealed a natural talent for oral advocacy.
"He was the most persuasive communicator I've ever encountered," said lawyer Linda ROTHSTEIN, who worked with SCOTT as an articling student.
But he was often so nervous before a case that he had to go and have a cigarette to calm down, PALIARE said.
Measured against that backdrop, SCOTT's stroke seemed particularly cruel, said Ontario Chief Justice Roy McMurtry, who considers SCOTT's death "the end of an era."
SCOTT recently remarked that he worked his "ass off" to regain some ability to speak, his sister said.
"In 12 years, he did make a life for himself," she said. "And he taught me that communication has nothing to do with speech, because he was able, with a raised eyebrow or a hand gesture or a single word, to be every bit as eloquent as he had been before."

LINDSAY, John W. Sr.
It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of John W. LINDSAY Sr. on May 5, 2006 due to complications from lung cancer. Born in Brooklyn, New York on June 2, 1926 to Harry Dayton LINDSAY and Ellen Arlene McBRINE, John grew up in Woodstock, New Brunswick. He served in the Canadian Army where a chance meeting with a fellow soldier changed his life. There he met an older man who advised him to become an engineer and see the world. He entered Dalhousie University with the Veterans' Program and there he met his lifelong love and partner, Marjorie A. LANGIN whom he married in 1948. He graduated with an Engineering Diploma in 1949 and went on to attend Nova Scotia Technical College where, in 1951, he earned a Bachelor of Civil Engineering. While studying engineering he was awarded the Bob Waters Award as most outstanding engineer and was President of his engineering class. John lived a fully balanced life. In business, he was a visionary developer and partner and mentor for small businesses and a corporate leader in large enterprises. In community life, he was a passionate volunteer, advisor and fund raiser. In his personal life, he was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, friend and lifelong fitness participant, sports fan and lover of music. As a developer his first project was the Strawberry Hill Street lands in North Halifax. He then built and leased the first multiple occupancy building in the Burnside Industrial Park and went on to develop millions of square feet of commercial buildings in the 'Park.' He also built and developed industrial buildings in Saint_John's, Newfoundland. His crowning achievement was the Purdy's Wharf office project on the waterfront of downtown Halifax. The leading office project in Atlantic Canada, it was technically innovative and remains the architectural signature of the Halifax skyline. John loved to partner and mentor in the creation of new businesses. These included steel and plastic piping, electrical motor rewinding, container repair, marine electric, mobile catering, pipe cleaning and repair, hazardous waste handling, equipment rentals, environmental, demolition earth work, tennis, squash and racquetball clubs, mathematical software, point of sale promotion and driving ranges. Beyond the success and failure of these businesses, he valued his ongoing relationship with each of his partner entrepreneurs. As a corporate leader he gave valued direction to national and regional companies. For a decade, he was chairman of Maritime Life following long service on the mortgage committee. He was a director of Canada Trust and its predecessor Canada Permanent Trust. He was a multi-decade director of Corporate Communications (now Colours), a director of Maritime Telephone and Telegraph (predecessor to Aliant) and was Chairman of the Halifax Shipyards. He was co-founder and Chairman of Atlantic Industries. John believed deeply in the Young Men's Christian Association of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth and the IWK Hospital and volunteered for both all of his adult life. At the Young Men's Christian Association, he was a volunteer, a member, an ambassador, a philanthropist and never ending steward. He joined the Board in the early 60s and remained as a Director until 1971. He actively participated in every Young Men's Christian Association fund raising campaign from 1970 to present. He served as a board member of the IWK Children's Hospital for more than ten years, leading major capital campaigns and was the co-leader of the amalgamation of the IWK and the Grace Hospital. John was also the founding chair of the IWK Foundation. In the 1970s he served on the Halifax Board of Trade including acting as Chairman in 1977. He also performed significant fund raising for his alma mater, Dalhousie University, and for a number of years served on its Board of Governors. John received recognition for his efforts in the community and in business. In 1984 he became the first recipient of the Halifax Young Men's Christian Association Red Triangle Award for outstanding community service. In 1991 he earned an Honourary Doctorate of Engineering from Technical University of Nova Scotia. He was named a Dalhousie Outstanding Alumnus and was also an honourary life member of the Association of Professional Engineers of Nova Scotia. He was inducted into the Nova Scotia Business Hall of Fame in 2004 and in 2005 was appointed to the Young Men's Christian Association Fellowship of Honour in a ceremony on Parliament Hill. In his personal life he made regular fitness an integral part of his day to day routine. He had played varsity football, rugby and boxing during his university years. He attended the Young Men's Christian Association advanced fitness class for three decades, leading the class each year on his birthday from age 60 to 72. He loved both the workout and the camaraderie. He and Marge enjoyed their lifelong couple Friends and he also enjoyed Boys Night Out, poker club and the Eager Beaver Investment club. John followed all sports avidly and was a true music lover. He did not prefer any particular genre, all he liked was 'good music' of all types. His deepest passions were reserved for his wife, his children and his grandchildren. He is survived by his wife Marjorie, son John (Anne CAMPBELL,) daughter Deborah (Luca ROTTA- LORIA,) grandchildren Jason, Andreas, Lauren, Alexander and Nicolas and step granddaughter Emma. The family would like to invite all those who wish to join in the celebration of his life to a reception on Monday, May 8 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the wharf at Purdy's Wharf. A Funeral service will be held on Tuesday, May 9 at 2 p.m., at First Baptist Church, 1300 Oxford Street, Halifax., Reverend Tim MacFarlane officiating.
