'Gentleman' of politics shaped county's future
By Chip MARTIN, Sun Media, Tues., December 4, 2007
Alan JOHNSON, a gentleman in London-area politics who made history and also helped preserve it, has died.
JOHNSON, warden of Middlesex County in 1990 as the county grappled with land annexation by London, was remembered by those in the political arena as a principled, calm and objective leader.
He was 79.
"He was always a gentleman… very analytical of issues that came up," said Charlie CORBETT, the former reeve of McGillivray Township who preceded JOHNSON as warden.
CORBETT remembered the long-festering standoff between the city and its municipal neighbours that resulted in a massive annexation in 1993 as "a rather difficult time."
But JOHNSON, a man of firm convictions, held fast to his belief the county could chart a course after annexation without throwing in the towel and joining London as a whole.
"It was very successful," CORBETT said of Middlesex, which prospered after coming to grips with losing Westminster and vast chunks of London Township to the city. And JOHNSON, a former insurance and car salesperson, deserves credit for that.
It was in London Township that JOHNSON made his mark, first with the planning board beginning in 1970, then on council, winning election as councillor in 1973, deputy reeve in 1986 and reeve in 1989.
Former Westminster mayor David MURRAY was a political brother-in-arms of JOHNSON as they dealt with the challenge of London annexation, and remembered him fondly.
"Alan had principles and he applied them," MURRAY said. "That to me meant a lot. I didn't find a lot of that in the politics of the day. I had a lot of respect for him. He will be missed."
Among JOHNSON's interests were preserving built history. He was a longstanding member of the board of Fanshawe Pioneer Village, a re-created 19th-century farm village in London, and helped raise funds when a former schoolhouse was threatened with destruction. He oversaw its relocation to the village.
The schoolhouse, Fanshawe S.S. No. 19, built in 1871, contained marks left by JOHNSON when he was a schoolboy there.
His wife, Kathy, said while in Parkwood Hospital in his final days JOHNSON was pleased to learn of a $40,000 donation from London Life to help help restore the schoolhouse.
"He knew about that and he was very pleased," she said.
A funeral will be held today at 2 p.m. at Dundas Street Centre United Church, 482 Dundas St. in London.

McBIRNIE, John Edward
By Gaelah McBIRNIE, Page L10
Brother, husband, father, grandfather, surgeon, music lover, friend. Born November 14, 1922, in Hamilton, Ontario Died April 7 in Alliston, Ontario, of a stroke, aged 84.
Dad was an impressive figure. As a little girl, I vividly recall his imposing presence; the deep voice, the towering bulk, the distinctive sound of his large sandaled feet crossing the driveway in the summer. He presented a stern exterior, but underneath was a beautiful man with a heart of gold.
John McBIRNIE was the eldest of three children born to Norman William and Sarah Winifred (McCARDLE) McBIRNIE.
John attended Davisville Public School, then North Toronto Collegiate for his high-school years. His aspiration for medicine led him to the University of Toronto.
John spent time during his medical studies in San Diego, California., and it was there he married Nadine BEARDMORE on December 2, 1948.
They lived in Toronto while John was completing his internship, and during this time their four children were born.
John was soon offered the position of chief of surgery at Port Colborne General Hospital in Ontario.
He liked the town and the job appealed to him, so in 1955 the family moved to a beautiful, white house on the lake, across from the hospital.
The sight of John walking to work in the winter, characteristically wearing his hospital whites and sandals, was a familiar one in town.
In 1973, John remarried to Patricia Arnold CORLESS; he continued at the hospital and ran a private practice until 1980.
At this time, he and Pat moved back to Toronto where he became an associate staff member at several hospitals, assisting with neurosurgery until he retired in 1999.
John was passionate about the arts, particularly music. Although he did not play an instrument, he had an exceptional ear and loved jazz.
John frequently drove to Buffalo to listen to musicians play. After befriending the likes of such jazz giants as DIzzy Gillespie, Junior Mance and Chick Corea, he would invite them back to the house in Port Colborne for Sunday afternoon chili parties and jam sessions.
The pride and joy of John's personal life was his farm near Mansfield, Ontario, which, over the years, became his sanctuary. His love of nature and solitude was evident from his attachment to this secluded piece of land and by the periods of time he spent there (with his dog, Chandler, and in the company of his colleague and friend, Griff PEARSON.)
It was at the Stevenson Memorial Hospital in Alliston, Ontario, where John suffered a massive stroke; it was there that he spent his last days, surrounded by the people closest to him and from whom he drew comfort.
Gaelah McBIRNIE is John's daughter.

Drummer Sang Lead On Hit Single 'Gypsy'
By Staff, Page S8
Uxbridge, Ontario -- Brian COTTERILL, vocalist and drummer for the top-40 pop group Abraham's Children, died of cancer yesterday. He was 55.
The band, which included Jimi BERTUCCI, Bob McPHERSON and Ron BARTLEY, was formed in 1968 and played under a series of names including Captain Midnight's Dirty Feet before settling on Abraham's Children. In 1971, the band was part of a legendary concert on Toronto's Centre Island and released Hot Love, it's first hit. Later, it enjoyed success with such songs as Goodbye Farewell, Goddess of Nature and Thank You. Their biggest hit, Gypsy, was a single for which Mr. COTTERILL sang lead vocals.
