POYTON, Herbert Guy
(November 24, 1911-December 8, 2007)
Peacefully of natural causes in Toronto, on December 8, 2007, two weeks after his 96th birthday, with his loving wife of 69 years, Eunice, and family friend, Margaret by his side, Guy slipped away from his remarkable life with us. Pre-deceased by his parents Herbert and Ellen (DIGGINS) POYTON, and sister Margaret Poyton HILL. In his immediate family, Guy is survived by his wife Eunice (CORNER) POYTON in Toronto, sister Ellen POYTON, brother and sister-in-law Kenneth and Elsie POYTON, and brother-in-law, Alfred HILL in England. Mourning his loss also are nephews Stuart CORNER, Colin POYTON, nieces Alison WHISKER and Ann NUNN in England Clare LAMB in Wales; Janet HILL in U.S.A.; and Katie HILL in Australia, and their families. Guy will be sadly missed also by Friends and colleagues in Canada and worldwide. Although his ancestry is French Huguenot, Guy was born in Bethnall Green, England. In his early teens, suffering at risk from the effects of London smog, he enrolled as a boarder at Margate College on the English coast where he recovered readily, excelled in academic studies and earned distinction as a member of an invincible rugby team. He remained a member of The Old Margatonian Association. Throughout his life, until his early eighties, Guy participated actively in many sports, such as sailing, swimming, running and weightlifting, as a member of the Royal Canadian Yacht Club, and as a Master Athlete in various events at Hart House, University of Toronto. After leaving Margate College, Guy trained in dentistry at Guy's Hospital, later joining his father's dental practice in Hackney. During the 1930's, Guy's father had founded The Abbey Street Sunday School for adults, so Guy and his siblings organized and participated in sections for infants and older children with a special emphasis on learning and singing hymns. Guy met and married Eunice, and opened a dental surgery at Chalkwell-on-Sea, near Southend, Essex. Keen to learn and to improve his practice, Guy continued academic studies to obtain the Edinburgh University Higher Dental Degree in 1972. During World War 2, as Major H.G. POYTON in the British Army, he served in England and Holland. Following the war, Guy obtained a position with the dental unit of the Metropolitan Police at Scotland Yard in London, and later, in 1948, at the leading dental hospital The Eastman Clinic in London, England. Initially also, he was involved in establishing an innovative program to train dental assistants, later called hygienists. Further studies resulted in his developing and expanding the use and techniques of radiology, specifically for complex conditions of the teeth and jaw. Doctor POYTON's pioneering achievements in, and specialized knowledge of dental radiology resulted in an invitation to lecture at University of London, and to teach at and develop the radiology program in The Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto. Doctor POYTON was the first Full professor of Oral Radiology in the Commonwealth and initiated the first M.Sc. course in Oral Radiology in the world. A popular speaker and admired teacher, and author of over 30 articles, Doctor POYTON lectured throughout Canada and U.S.A., and in United Kingdom Australia, New Zealand and Bulgaria.
Always willing to assist students and colleagues, Doctor POYTON consulted on maxillofacial radiology matters in various hospitals, to such journals as Scientific American and Journal of Science. He was an adviser to the Medical Research Council, National Health and Welfare (Canada), the Canadian Government Specifications Board, National Health Research and Development Programs, and the F.D.I. Commission on Dental Materials. He was an Honourary Life Member and Founder President of The Canadian Academy of Oral Radiology; Member, The Royal Society of Medicine, The Royal College of Surgeons, Edin.; Life Member, Canadian Dental Association Life Member and Founder Secretary, British Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology; and a Distinguished Life Member of the American Academy of Dental and Maxillofacial Radiology. In 1982, Dr. POYTON published the first full and definitive book on the subject, entitled Manual of Dental and Oral Radiology. Updated with his colleague, M.J. Pharoah in 1989, it remains a definitive text. Doctor POYTON retired from his position as Associate Dean, Administrative Affairs, Chairman and Professor of Oral Radiology in The Faculty of Dentistry in 1978, but as Emeritus Professor, maintained close ties with many colleagues and former students. Foremost was his interest in ensuring that The Faculty of Dentistry retain its international recognition for excellence. He encouraged fraternal participation in world conferences, in developing professional relationships with international colleagues and in sharing expertise because he considered dental care and radiology services as an essential part of total health care from infants to elderly. In 2004, a donation by Guy and Eunice established The Poyton Graduate Student Bursary in Oral Radiology at University of Toronto, enabling The Faculty of Dentistry to expand its program in diagnostic imagery and research. In December, 2000, Guy and Eunice moved to a residential care centre. They have been blessed by new Friends and attention from excellent medical staff and loving caregivers. Guy will be greatly missed. He was charming, gentle, gracious, and kindly, an excellent companion and friend, always interesting, and wise. A man of renown, Guy never failed to express his appreciation of others, his devotion to Eunice and his gratitude for his care. At his request, there was no service. As promised, Guy's life and achievements will be celebrated with dignity, sparing no sentiment, but with gratitude for his life and Friendship, and acknowledging the Poyton legacy, in Toronto, in Spring, at a venue to be announced. The Poyton Family wish to thank all who visited or assisted with Guy's care. We are very grateful to all medical personnel, all staff at The Annex Residence, devoted Friends Don, Ann and Robert Teskey, David and Joan Black, and especially, Margaret Cameron.

Mom, 2 kids killed, son, dad injured in horrific crash
Police say the Hamilton-area crash occurred when a van ran a stop sign.
By Rob LAMBERTI, Sun Media, Sat., August 25, 2007
Hamilton -- A family's plan of a new start to their lives ended in tragedy when a van ran a stop sign and demolished their minivan near Brantford, killing a mom and two of her kids.
Shannon O'LEARY, 32, and her two-month-old daughter Hailey O'LEARY- FERGUSON died instantly in the 9: 06 p.m. Thursday crash at Brant County Rd. 4 and the Burford-Delhi Townline Rd.
Shannon's daughter, Taylor O'LEARY, 10, died at 3 a.m. yesterday in Hamilton hospital, say Friends and neighbours, and her organs were donated.
Her son, Ethan, 4, is in a medically induced coma following surgery for severe head trauma and Shannon's husband, Dennis FERGUSON, is in stable condition.
The 21-year-old driver of the other van, a Chevy Astro, is in grave condition. He is accused of running the stop sign and slamming into the victims' northbound Pontiac Montana, which was almost split in two by the tremendous impact.
Ariel VARGA, 12, said she's finding it difficult losing a close friend. Taylor "was a good person. She was nice, She liked to go shopping a lot," Ariel said. "She had lots of Friends around here."
Friend Natalia ALFANO, 9, said the neighbourhood girls would play cheerleading, dolls and gymnastics. "It was really fun to play with her," Natalia said. "We always used to laugh together and play."
Ontario Provincial Police Const. Larry PLUMMER said investigators were told by a witness driving behind the Chevy Astro that there were no brake lights before the Chevy crashed into the passenger sliding door of the victims' Montana.
"It was an incredible, terrible impact," he said.
"We don't have a clue" why the driver failed to stop, PLUMMER said, adding the area is flat and it was a "beautiful moonlit night."
"There's no rhyme or reason and the only person that obviously knows was driving the vehicle and we don't expect to talk to him for quite a while, if we ever do."
PLUMMER said it took Brant County volunteer firefighters about 20 minutes to free the trapped man.

Neighbours left in shock following murder-suicide
By Rob LAMBERTI, Sun Media, Thurs., October 18, 2007
Toronto -- Neighbours are stunned and shaken, but they understand Ed and Jessie KLING were suffering.
"It was unbelievable shock. I still don't want to believe it happened," next-door neighbour Jim PATSAKOS said.
"You would never think this would happen to these people. It would never cross your mind."
Jessie, 81, who was bedridden and suffering from cancer, which claimed her sister this past summer, was found shot to death in a bedroom Tuesday night.
Her husband, Ed, 83, a Second World War veteran and retired teacher who was suffering from a heart condition, was found dead in the garage of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Jessie's body was found by a daughter and police found Ed. The couple had three daughters and a son and several grandchildren.
One daughter, Susan, committed suicide about 20 years ago, said one neighbour.
The Klings were known for their colourful blooms in the small but well-kept flower beds, but neighbours said Ed didn't seem to take care of his precious flowers this summer as well as he did in summers past.
Neighbours didn't know anything about the long barrelled shotgun and handguns Toronto Police took out of the red brick bungalow.
Police also took a blood-soaked patio chair out of the garage.
"How are you going to survive when everything hits you?" asked a neighbour. "You can only feel sad for them."
But when they were well, they lit up the neighbourhood, say area residents.
"They were always out there in their garden and talking to everybody who walked by," PATSAKOS said.
But they were slowing down, the neighbour of 20 years said. "They were both failing."
PATSAKOS said he spoke with the couple's son Barry, of California, during Thanksgiving, who said his elderly parents were "going downhill pretty quick."
Nevertheless, there was no indication of a pending tragedy, he said.

Police pleaded with slain man to drop weapon
Three Halton officers are the focus of an Special Investigations Unit probe of the shooting in Oakville.
By Rob LAMBERTI, Sun Media, Mon., December 3, 2007
Toronto -- The armed man who was killed in a confrontation with Halton police had recently returned to Oakville from British Columbia after losing or leaving his job.
Steve REMIAN, 38, died after being shot several times by three officers, two of them tactical unit members, at 2: 33 a.m. Saturday in Wedgewood Park in the town's posh east end.
One of those bullets is believed to have hit REMIAN in the head.
REMIAN had moved to British Columbia to work and recently returned to Oakville, where he lived previously and has family.
Special Investigations Unit spokesperson Rose Bliss said an autopsy was performed yesterday and some results may be revealed today.
She said Royal Canadian Mounted Police in British Columbia are trying to dig up background on the man.
Bliss said four officers were initially designated as subject officers, meaning that they had shot at REMIAN, but evidence suggests there were three officers.
Their actions are under scrutiny by the Special Investigations Unit. There are 13 designated as witness officers, she said.
Police began looking for REMIAN and his auto after receiving a call from a person at a Tim Hortons an hour before the fatal shots.
Bliss said the man was acting strangely and threatened to harm himself and others.
The caller had also seen the man's rifle, she said.
By the time officers arrived at the coffee shop, REMIAN had left the scene, but another patrolling cruiser spotted his car a short time later.
With flashing lights, police followed the car into the park, where the man drove until he got wedged in bush and woods.
REMIAN apparently made no effort to lose police during the short drive from when he was spotted and when he was cornered in the park.
Despite numerous pleas to drop the rifle, REMIAN apparently lifted the firearm and police opened fire.
Bliss said it's not known if REMIAN opened fire at police.
The man's apparent state of mind raises the question that he may have tried to provoke police into a confrontation, a phenomenon known as suicide by cop. Bliss didn't say if investigators have any evidence of it in this case.
But a source said the man was visibly upset and had been openly talking about harming himself and others.

Daughter strangled
Friends say Aqsa PARVEZ clashed with her strict family.
By Rob LAMBERTI, Sun Media, Wed., December 12, 2007
Mississauga -- Muhammad PARVEZ appears in court this morning charged with strangling his daughter as homicide detectives continue to look at her older brother to determine if he had a role in the slaying.
The 57-year-old man was charged yesterday with killing 16-year-old Aqsa PARVEZ, who Friends say rebelled against her father's religious expectations. Aqsa died in the Hospital for Sick Children late Monday and her mother arranged for her daughter's organs be donated.
Peel detectives charged her brother, Waqas, 26, with obstructing police, allegedly for trying to mislead officers during their investigation.
But police said Waqas continues to be investigated by homicide detectives to determine if he's involved in Peel's 16th murder of the year.
"We're now trying to determine what role or culpability he may have had in the homicide as well," Peel police homicide Insp. Norm ENGLISH said. "We're certainly going to be conducting further investigations to determine if he had a role in this."
ENGLISH said the investigation is still early and whether Muhammad is charged with first- or second-degree murder depends on witness information and the results of a pending autopsy. Investigators suspect the Grade 11 Applewood Heights secondary school student was strangled.
Police were alerted to the incident when a man called police just before 8 a.m. Monday saying he had killed his daughter at their Longhorn Trail home.
Most students learned during the school's morning announcement yesterday that Aqsa, who was born in Pakistan, had died.
A memorial with her photo and a book of condolences was in the front lobby of the high school for classmates to jot down memories or poems.
"It's just, like, really sad. Everyone was just crying," said Grade 10 student Natalie RANCE.
Students and Friends said Aqsa began removing her hijab when she attended school this term after her older sister had graduated. With no one to watch over her, she apparently felt free to dress more casually.
Aqsa recently left the family home and moved in with a friend, said Krista GARBUTT. She said the victim was quite open with Friends about discussing the culture clash she was having with her father, but it appears no one in authority was aware.
"I don't think so; she didn't tell a teacher," Dominiquia HOLMES- THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said yesterday.
Students were sent home with letters for their parents informing them of Aqsa's death and an outline of symptoms for depression or stress that their kids may feel. It assured parents that counsellors are available.
HOLMES- THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON described Aqsa as a kind person who loved to take photos and to dance. "And all she wanted to do is to be herself."
She said Aqsa was at a friend's place after leaving her home around 8 p.m. Sunday.
"She was happy, she was ready to go to school, she was excited," HOLMES- THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said, adding Aqsa intended on returning to the family home to get clothes.
But HOLMES- THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said Aqsa told her she was "scared to go home."
"Because she didn't obey the rules…" she said.
HOLMES- THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said her friend would arrive at school wearing jogging pants and hijab and then change clothes, removing the traditional headscarf.
Friend Ashley GARBUTT, 16, said that Aqsa didn't want to wear the hijab any more.
"Then her sister kept telling her dad that she doesn't wear it," she said. "She left her house twice. She left and went to her friend's house because… she would get scared and she just didn't want to live there anymore. She wanted to be her own person and show her inner beauty."
GARBUTT said Aqsa went to a shelter and her father contacted her asking her to come home because neither he nor her mother could eat after she left the first time.
"She moved home because she felt bad, but she moved out again," she said.
Friends said there probably are other girls who find themselves in a similar situation.
"They should get help soon as possible, whether it's a counsellor," Ebonie MITCHELL said. "Because we never knew it was that bad. If they're in that situation, they should get help as soon as possible."

Tom SCOTT, beloved husband of Yvonne (Tommy) passed away in Calgary on Christmas Day, 2007, at the age of 84 years, after a brief and courageous battle with cancer. Tom was a devoted and loving father and grandfather and will be fondly remembered by his children Deborah (Lynn) of Toronto, Ontario, Ted (Jo-Ann) of Toronto, Ontario, Jennifer (Graham) of Calgary, Alberta, and Geoff (Michelle) of Burlington, Ontario; and by grandchildren Hart and Cayley LAMBUR, Caroline, Ian and Katherine SCOTT, Liam and Riley DUFF and Foster and Dustin SCOTT. Survived by his brother Peter of Vancouver, British Columbia. Tom was born in Cumberland, British Columbia. He graduated in Applied Science, as a mechanical engineer, from the University of British Columbia, in 1946. He was president of the University's graduating class in that year and won the Engineering Institute of Canada prize. After graduation, Tom headed east to work in various engineering capacities for CIL (later Dupont of Canada) in Montreal and Shawinigan, Québec. While in Shawinigan, he met his beloved Tommy in nearby Trois Rivieres. They were married in 1952 and eventually settled in Beaconsfield, Québec, where they formed many lifelong Friendships. In 1971, intrigued at the potential of the oil sands and the prospect of taking his career in a new direction, Tom moved the family to Fort McMurray, where he managed engineering and maintenance for Great Canadian Oil Sands, now a division of Suncor. This was followed by a move to Edmonton in 1973 to handle the assembly and marketing of Great Canadian Oil Sands's oil sands technology.

LAMER o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2007-11-26 published
Top judge retained common touch
By Jim BROWN, Canadian Press, Mon., November 26, 2007
Ottawa -- If ever a man was in love with the legal profession, devoted to its traditions and steeped in its history, it was Joseph Antonio Charles LAMER, the 16th chief justice of Canada.
But if ever a man managed to keep the common touch while walking with the high and mighty, it was also the guy from gritty, east-end Montreal known to Friends and colleagues as Tony.
LAMER, 74, died in the overnight hours between Friday and Saturday, surrounded by family members.
He had been in and out of hospital several times in recent years suffering from recurring heart problems.
In nearly 20 years on the Supreme Court of Canada, half of them as chief justice, LAMER never lost his taste for the simple pleasures.
On sunny summer weekdays he frequently fled the austere confines of the court to stroll the Sparks Street Mall in downtown Ottawa at lunchtime, grazing on the fare offered by street vendors.
Saturday mornings often found him among the shoppers at the Loblaw's supermarket a few blocks to the east along Rideau Street.
"I would see him sitting at the snack bar with a hotdog and a Coke, shooting the breeze with whoever else was there taking a break from groceries," recalled Eugene MEEHAN, a prominent Ottawa lawyer and longtime friend.
"I doubt anyone knew his day job."
Renowned for his expertise in criminal law, LAMER built a reputation on the bench as a man who could see through the legal maze to the human issues at stake in the courtroom.
"He was a champion of rights and liberties," said Bernard AMYOT, president of the Canadian Bar Association.
"It was under his watch, especially as chief justice, that many Charter cases started to percolate up to the Supreme Court."
LAMER's folksy personal manner was more than a facade. Although he was the son of a lawyer, he was born on July 8, 1933, into the same rough-and-tumble neighbourhood where his father had grown up and insisted on staying.
"Everybody went to the penitentiary except two guys," LAMER later reminisced about his boyhood playmates.
"I saw these people turn into holdup men, one of them committed murder. The girl across the street became a prostitute."
LAMER took another route, to College St-Laurent, one of the schools where the francophone elite of the day sent their children, then to the Universite de Montreal for a law degree.
During 12 years in private practice he made a name as a criminal lawyer -- and successfully defended Quebec nationalist Pierre Bourgault on a charge of inciting the 1968 St-Jean-Baptiste Day riot where the crowd showered Pierre Trudeau with debris.
A year later Trudeau, the arch-federalist Liberal prime minister, appointed LAMER, at age 36, as a judge of Quebec Superior Court.

Judge breathed creative life into the Charter
'His judgments reflected a belief that judges were, above all, independent, principled guardians of the Constitution'
By Kirk MAKIN, Justice Reporter, Page S10
Former chief justice Antonio LAMER - one of the longest-serving and most influential judges in Canadian history - died Saturday, several weeks after recurring heart trouble and failing health forced him into an Ottawa hospital.
Appointed to the Supreme Court of Canada in 1980, Mr. LAMER, 74, spent his 20 years on the court consolidating his reputation as a renowned law reformer who was determined to breathe creative life into the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
When he retired in 2000 - after being chief justice for a decade - Mr. LAMER was more closely identified with the protection of the rights of the accused than any judge in the country.
"I think Canada should be very grateful for the fact that it had a criminal expert with his vision on the court at the time the Charter was enacted," Queen's University law professor Don STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said in an interview yesterday.
"He was not just an expert, but a very imaginative judge whose judgments made a significant contribution to the development of criminal law under the Charter."
Mr. Justice James MacPHERSON of the Ontario Court of Appeal said that Mr. LAMER had an enormous thirst for Charter interpretation and soon became the court's most prolific writer and influential thinker.
"He was a very energetic, intellectual and friendly man, and a terrific colleague who was always willing to shoulder extra work," said Judge MacPHERSON, who served as the Supreme Court's executive legal officer in the early 1980s.
A famed Montreal criminal lawyer who acted in numerous sensational trials, Mr. LAMER also served as chairman of the Law Reform Commission of Canada at its height in the late 1970s.
"He was a great civil libertarian," Criminal Lawyers Association president Frank ADDARIO said. "His judgments reflected a belief that judges were, above all, independent, principled guardians of the Constitution. He was unafraid to disappoint the government or the police. He made a great contribution to modernizing criminal law."
Mr. LAMER was one of a troika of judges in the mid-1980s who - alongside Chief Justice Brian Dickson and Madam Justice Bertha Wilson - came to be identified with a willingness to strike down legislation and reform controversial areas of law.
In particular, Mr. LAMER was instrumental in interpreting the moral culpability involved in certain crimes, the right to legal counsel and the right to be free of improper search and seizure.
However, his track record also transformed him into something of a judicial lightning rod when a conservative backlash against the Charter began to take root in the 1990s. Mr. LAMER was stung by criticisms from the right, and went so far at one point as to urge his fellow judges to strike back and defend their role.
"He has often been falsely tagged as being unremittingly pro-accused," Prof. STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said yesterday. "A fair look at his record shows that he also not infrequently favoured the state's law-enforcement interests."
During his time as chief justice, the Supreme Court bench was staggered by illness and strong-minded individualists who frequently wrote their own concurring or dissenting reasons for judgment. Yet Mr. LAMER managed to forge a strong record for administrative efficiency. He was proud of having eliminated the court's backlog and issuing timely judgments.
Mr. LAMER worked at the law firm Stikeman Elliott until shortly before his death. Last year, he produced a major inquiry report on three wrongful murder convictions in Newfoundland.
He was also an independent commissioner of the Communications Security Establishment, the national code-breaking agency.
Antonio LAMER was born in Montreal on July 8, 1933, and died in Ottawa on November 24, 2007, of a cardiac illness. He was 74. He leaves his wife, Danièle TREMBLAY, son Stéphane and stepchildren Jean-Frédéric and Mélanie.
Some of the key rulings in which Mr. LAMER authored the majority decision
R v. Collins The decision set important legal tests for the exclusion of evidence illegally obtained by police.
R v. Swain The court struck down the automatic detention of those acquitted of crimes on grounds of insanity.
R v. Smith The ruling struck down a mandatory minimum prison sentence of seven years for those convicted of importing marijuana.
Reference re. S. 94(2) of the British Columbia Motor Vehicle Act The court said that when looking for violations of the right to life, liberty and security of the person, judges could look beyond the fairness of mere procedures and decide whether the actual substance of a law was fair.
R v. Vaillancourt A constructive murder provision was struck down because the accused man - whose accomplice in a robbery had killed a bystander - did not have the requisite "guilty mind" to be found guilty of murder.
R v. Bartle One of several cases where he played a central role in carving out a broad right to legal counsel.
R v. O'Connor The defence was given a right to see records involving what a sexual-assault complainant told her therapist.
Delgamuukw The court had previously viewed aboriginal rights as frozen based on their status when Europeans arrived in Canada. It granted broad rights to aboriginal title on disputed lands.
