GALPIN, Doctor Richard Robertson
Was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, on May 29, 1915, first child of his parents Alfred and Louise GALPIN. His father worked as an official with Canadian Customs and Immigration, his mother maintained their home. Richard was the third generation of the family born in Vancouver. He was joined in a few years by his beloved sister Esther Louise (who later married C.G. (Bud) KILLAM. They are survived by their children, son Richard (Veronica), daughter Nancy SINCLAIR (Richard,) and son Michael (Lynette) all of Vancouver). He grew up in Vancouver, attending public schools. He graduated from Kitsalino High School, and attended the University of British Columbia, where he received his Bachelor's degree. When he spoke about this time in his life, he remembered the Friendships he had, and the love of his family. During this time he held many part time jobs that shaped his outlook on life, including working as a lumberjack, streetcar motorman, and on the railroad. As a young man, he enjoyed sailing, music and the outdoors, and played rugby for the Merelomas. His love of music has always been central to his life, and started with piano lessons as a boy. While attending University of British Columbia, he was introduced to a friend of his sister's, Helen STEVENSON, who he courted and married. After graduating from University of British Columbia, he attended Medical School at McGill University, and received his doctorate in 1943. After graduation, he was immediately assigned to service aboard the HMCS Waterford. He served through the remainder of World War 2 in the Canadian Navy and saw combat throughout the Atlantic Theater as a ship's surgeon. His decorations include: The Battle of Atlantic Medal, Normandy Star, Defense of Britain Medal, and the Victory Medal. He continued to have an affiliation with the Canadian Navy until his death, rising to the rank of Rear-Admiral (Reserves). He relished this connection to the navy throughout his life. He was particularly proud of his Honorary United states Naval Insignia, including Surface command, and Naval Aviator (U.S.S. Nimitz). He was also an honorary member of the Detroit Navy League. In 1949 Richard emigrated to the United States to begin his Pediatric training at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. He completed this and became Board Certified and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. He joined Doctor Lloyd Kemp in his office at the corner of Brown and Southfield, and joined the staff at Beaumont Hospital when it was a single building lying on the outskirts of the city. He went on to practice pediatrics in the same location for over thirty years, caring for multiple generations from the same families. During his clinical practice he became especially interested in early childhood development. With his belief in the importance of nurturing this special period of a child's development and through the strength of his efforts, he founded the Neuro-Education Center at Beaumont Hospital. From early shoe-string budgets, he shepherded the center through it's early years, and maintained an interest in 'the Center' for the rest of his life. It has now become the Center for Human Development at Beaumont Hospital. He and Helen had four children Kenneth, Peter, Lindley and Sheila. The children were raised in Birmingham. During this time Richard and Helen were involved in many community affairs from the Birmingham Jazz Festival, the Birmingham Kite Festival to the origins of the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center, and were members of Christchurch Cranbrook. During this time he was an avid competitive sailor, a Member of Crescent Sail Yacht club. He passed on his love of music and sailing to his children. Helen and Richard divorced in 1970. In 1973 he was introduced to Maxine RICH by mutual Friends. They courted for two years and went on to be married in 1975. The marriage lasted until their deaths. As a couple they were inseparable. As well as traveling, they loved to entertain at Maxine's house in Orchard lake, were avid ballroom dancers and enjoyed boating on Cass Lake. Richard is survived by his first wife Helen GALPIN of Comox, British Columbia and son Peter (Nina) and their twin children Akira and Mikiko, daughter Lindley (Carey) and her children Karen and Amy, Father-in-law to Mary BODO (Kenneth,) daughter Sheila MEREDITH and her children Thyra and Nedra, and their children Walter, Ella and Daniel. Stepchildren, Tina BROWNE (Charles) and their children, Paul, Theodore, and Isabel, Todd RICH (Denise) and their children P.J. and Zachary. In lieu of flowers the family and Doctor GALPIN request donations to either Mariner's Church Music Fund, 170 East Jefferson, Detroit, Michigan 48226 or the Center For Human Development, Beaumont Hospital, 1695 West 12 Mile Road, Suite 120, Royal Oak, Michigan. While the world may seem a darker place without the light of his smile, his skill as a raconteur and his joy at the piano, his contribution to the world has been great, and we carry him with us always.

STEVENSON, Mary R. (née FLOYD)
Suddenly after a brief illness on Monday, September 17, 2007 at Saint Michael's Hospital in her 90th year, after a Muskoka summer surrounded by all her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren (and dogs). Mary, the beautiful and dearly loved wife of Harry (d. 1999) for 61 years, adored mother of Cynthia CARSLEY (Scott MARTIN), Alice COOPER (Douglas), Douglas STEVENSON (Sonia) and Leigh Anne STEVENSON. Grandmother of Louis CARSLEY (Susanne,) Andrew CARSLEY, Douglas CARSLEY (Penny), Steve WALKER (Tracy), Todd WALKER (Tatjana), Joshua WALKER (Devorah), George COOPER, Rob STEVENSON (Cynthia,) Monique STEVENSON, and John Stevenson TAMES. Great-grandmother of Timothy, Reed, Eden, Nicola, Oscar, Carson and Boaz. Beloved sister of Frank FLOYD and Ruth SMITH. Predeceased by her brother Richard FLOYD.
Mary will be long honoured, remembered and dearly missed by her family and Friends everywhere. Mary and Harry's life together, living in Toronto, Muskoka, Coral Gables, Naples, Barbados, New York, Athens, London and Ottawa gave them the opportunity to make extraordinary Friends -- whom they treasured.
Mary had deep commitments to Christ Church Deer Park, The Cradleship Creche, Belmont House, and the Church of the Kettles. She was the conservator and doyenne of the Stevenson family cottage. At her happiest, she was sitting on her deck (with Harry) in Muskoka, notebook in hand, surrounded by the activities and perambulations of countless boats, dogs, and her beloved family. Writing was always close to her heart, and in her last eight years she never passed a day without setting pen to paper. Her book "The Church of the Kettles, Muskoka" published in her 86th year was the highlight of her writing career. Still to be published is her book on the history of Belmont House.
On her last night with us she recited a poem she wrote:
Muskoka -- By the way:
If ever in the night you hear,
The dove-soft whistle
of a northbound train,
Remember all the summer years
We loved, we loved and laughed
and know that now
Though wrapped in shrouds
of dream filled sleep
we hear it still.
A service will be held at Christ Church Deer Park, 1570 Yonge St. (at Heath St.) on Friday, September 21 at 11 a.m. Remembrances can be sent on behalf of Mary to Belmont House and Christ Church Deer Park.

Bidding farewell to a kind soul
Family chose simple, unadorned casket, befitting the humble nature of officer who helped so many
By Christian COTRONEO, staff reporter with files from Joanna SMITH, Page B3
The casket Anil AHLOWALIA chose for his younger brother Davis was oak, without stain or ornament.
It was much like one the brothers had seen on television more than a year ago for the burial of Pope John Paul II.
"We saw this simple casket and we said, 'That's the way people should be buried -- humbleness, right to the hour of death and beyond,'" Anil recalled.
So when the AHLOWALIA family had to choose a casket for Davis, they looked past the ornate, expensive models.
"We saw one that was just oak," Anil said. "No stain. No glamour. It was made for Davis."
Only it was made too early.
Davis AHLOWALIA was killed on January 6, 2007, when an oncoming van unaccountably swerved into his lane on Major Mackenzie Doctor in Vaughan. The 28-year-old York Regional Police officer was off duty at the time.
In all, the fiery crash claimed four victims. The driver of the van, Waleed SHAUKAT, 17, and 19-year-old passenger Sulman YUSAF died on the scene.
The driver's mother, Mansoora SHAUKAT, said yesterday in a telephone interview that she was sorry to learn her son's other close friend, Muhammed MATTU, had succumbed to his injuries Thursday night after spending the week in hospital in critical condition.
"A very cute boy, Muhammed," she said.
She remembers the 17-year-old, whose family she said lives in the Peace Village neighbourhood of Maple, Ontario, often coming home with her son to watch movies or eat pizza in the basement.
"They were very close Friends, all three -- Muhammed, Sulman and Waleed."
Yesterday 1,000 mourners -- more than the church could bear -- attended the funeral for the fallen officer.
For a few frozen moments, traffic along a bustling four-block stretch of Yonge St. in Richmond Hill was hushed. Police officers held cars at bay. The soft strains of a devotional hymn floated outside Saint Mary Immaculate Roman Catholic Church.
Scores more officers -- Royal Canadian Mounted Police in scarlet and polished leather riding boots, York Regional Police in red-brimmed caps and Ontario Provincial Police officers in full regalia -- lined the church steps outside. When the oak casket emerged, they held a long salute, bidding a final farewell to one of their own.
"Although he only served for a short time, he made an incredible impact on our community," said York Regional Police Chief Armand LA BARGE after the service. "Every human contact, every radio call, every interaction that he had, he brought his Christian values to the forefront and helped people."
A fervent Christian, AHLOWALIA travelled to impoverished regions of the world whenever he could, persuading his fellow officers to lend a hand to an orphanage in Jamaica, and helping the poor in Calcutta, India.
Parents and older brothers joined a grim procession of family, following the casket down the church steps. "Today, I had the difficult task of burying my brother," said Anil AHLOWALIA, his voice breaking, as he spoke after the funeral. "It's one of the hardest things I've ever had to do in my life."
Chris GRANT, who attended Saint Michael's College School with AHLOWALIA, joined about 100 former schoolmates and teachers at the service, many wearing their school ties in memory of the departed.
"I mostly remember him walking around on game days, wearing his football jersey," GRANT said. "He was very proud to be on the team."
GRANT recalled his schoolmate wanted to be a priest -- "but decided to serve his community in a different way."
That desire led AHLOWALIA to police college, where he met Ryan STEVENSON, also training to be an officer.
"He would always take time out of his day to stop and say hello, ask how you are and how your family is," said STEVENSON, now a special constable with York Regional Police.
Even then, it was obvious that AHLOWALIA's ambitions went beyond the badge. "He used policing as a springboard into what he did in the community," said STEVENSON.
Indeed, during the hiring process, AHLOWALIA was asked why he wanted to become a police officer -- and, according to Chief LA BARGE, he answered, "to help people in the most need."

STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, Lloyd
In loving memory of Lloyd STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, dear husband, dad, grandpa and great-grandpa who passed away July 23, 2006.
It's been a year since you left us
Our lives go on without you
And nothing is the same
We have to hide our heartaches
when someone speaks your name
Sad are the hearts that loved you
Silent are the tears that fall
Living our lives without you
Is the hardest part of all
You did so many things for us
Your heart was kind and true
And when we needed someone
We could always count on you
The special times will not return
when we were all together
But with the love inside our hearts
You will walk with us forever.
All our love
- Miss you, Alice, Brian, Brenda, Betty and families

Family first for Royal Canadian Air Force coach
By Amanda ROBINSON, Sun Media, Sun., May 27, 2007
Harold Leslie LANCASTER returned home in 1945 from Britain to Canada disappointed.
As a Royal Canadian Air Force instructor, he trained hundreds of men who went off to fight in the Second World War but never used his own flying skills in battle.
His loving young wife saw to that by making his family top priority.
For 2½ years at the war's onset, LANCASTER trained young flyers at the air base in Goderich, where he flew everything from the small, pesky Spitfire to the mammoth bomber with which he shared a name -- the Lancaster.
Then it was on to Britain in August 1944, where he trained more Commonwealth pilots, all the time hoping he'd see action in the war in the Pacific.
But that campaign of the war would end, too, before LANCASTER, who died April 1 at age 85, could fulfil his adventurous spirit.
Disappointed as LANCASTER was at again missing out on battle firsthand, it suited his young wife, the former Evelyn TUNKS, just fine.
The two had been married on September 13, 1941, about six years after meeting at age 14.
She had more than a little influence on LANCASTER never fighting overseas -- she wanted her husband to be around for her and their children.
"Thank God he didn't have to go," she said. "When he came home he had a chance to go on but I said, 'No, I want a father for my children.' "
And that was that -- LANCASTER would devote the rest of his life to family and nature.
When he died last month, he left behind his wife of 65 years and two daughters, Sharon STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, 64, and Janis LANCASTER, 57.
He also is survived by two grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
"He was such a nice, kind man and he was a lot of fun," STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said of her dad. "He just loved young fellas or gals who loved nature."
LANCASTER grew up on a farm in Elgin County with six brothers. There, he developed a love and appreciation for nature, specifically birds. He was fascinated by them and became an avid bird watcher, documenting and writing about many species.
LANCASTER also became active with many environmental groups, among them the Federation of Ontario Naturalists, the West Elgin Nature Club and the eco-Elgin Environmental Society.
STEWARD/STEWART/STUART credits her father for her appreciation of nature. She admits she's never had the passion for birds her father had but she does enjoy the peace and quiet of natural settings.
"I love to sit and listen to the birds and I love to have my place natural-looking," she said.
"I also got from my father just (a) love of life and (the belief) that I can do anything that I want."

Two die in head-on crash
One man was returning from a wedding, the other was a dad killed on Father's Day.
By Jonathan SHER, Sun Media, Mon., June 18, 2007
The Father's Day weekend turned tragic for two families when what began as a simple traffic manoeuvre near Stratford ended with two men dead and a 11-year-old girl in critical condition.
Dusk had fallen Saturday when two vehicles crashed head-on along Highway 7 eight kilometres east of Shakespeare.
The driver of a westbound car, Jeremy CRINKLAW, 30, of Stratford, had been returning home after celebrating his sister's wedding.
He edged his car into the eastbound lane as if to get a view before passing another vehicle, witnesses: told police.
Instead, he collided head-on with an eastbound car.
The crash killed CRINKLAW and the driver of the eastbound car, Douglas STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, 50, of Oakville, who'd been sitting next to his 11-year-old daughter, Emily.
"It's very tragic," Perth Ontario Provincial Police Const. Glen CHILDERLEY said yesterday.
The girl suffered "life-threatening injuries" and was taken to MacMaster Hospital in Hamilton, he said.
The crash closed traffic for several hours and Ontario Provincial Police investigators were trying yesterday to confirm what had happened.

Because I could not stop for Death, He kindly stopped for me The carriage held but just ourselves And Immortality. We slowly drove, he knew no haste, And I had put away My labor, and my leisure too, For his civility. We passed the school where children played At wrestling in a ring; We passed the fields of gazing grain, We passed the setting sun. We paused before a house. that seemed A swelling of the ground; The roof was scarcely visible, The cornice but a mound. Since then 'tis centuries; but each Feels shorter than the day I first surmised the horses' heads Were toward eternity.

FRAZEE, Rowland Cardwell, B.Com, C.C.
Peacefully, surrounded by his family, on July 29th, 2007 in his 87th year. Devoted husband to Marie for 58 years. Sadly missed by his son Stephen, daughter Catherine (Patricia SEELEY,) daughter-in-law Katherine, granddaughter Laura and grand_son Patrick. Survived by his younger sister Barbara THORNTON, her daughter Nan (Colin STEWARD/STEWART/STUART) and fondly remembered by his three sisters-in-law (Anita LOGIE, Kaye RANSOM and Louise LAIDLAW) and many nieces and nephews. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia on May 12, 1921 to descendants of United Empire Loyalists, he grew up in St. Stephen, New Brunswick, where his father was the manager of the Royal Bank. Like so many of his generation, Rowlie FRAZEE enlisted in the Canadian Army in 1941, serving overseas with the Carelton and York Regiment, First Infantry Division. He was wounded three times, once when his cap badge deflected a scrap of German shell which otherwise might have ended his life. After the war ended, Rowlie studied at Dalhousie University (Kings College) in Halifax where he graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce degree in 1948. He joined the Royal Bank that year and worked his way up through the ranks in various management positions in five different provinces. A signal that he was headed to the top came in 1973 when he was made Executive Vice President of the Royal Bank in 1977, Chief Executive Officer in 1979 and Chairman in 1980. He was often sought after to serve as director and served on many boards over the years including Royal Bank of Canada, Ganong Bros Limited, University of New Brunswick Board of Governors, Huntsman Marine Science Centre, Air Canada, Newfoundland Capital Corp, Continental Air lines, The Beaverbrook Art Gallery, Kings College Board of Governors, Home Support Services (Charlotte County, New Brunswick) and New Brunswick Investment Management Corporation. He also served as Chairman of the Business Council on National Issues, National Chair man of Junior Achievement of Canada and served three terms as Chairman of the Roosevelt Campobello International Park Commission. During his career he received many awards, including honourary degrees from six universities (Acadia, Dalhousie, Kings College, Mount Allison, University of New Brunswick and York) and in 2001 was inducted into the New Brunswick Business Hall of Fame. In 1985, he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada and was promoted to Companion in 1991. He proudly wore his Order of Canada lapel pin for the rest of his life. Rowlie was always proud of his Maritime heritage and he and his wife Marie enjoyed a very happy retirement in St. Andrews, New Brunswick where he worked at improving his golf game and tending to his beloved rose garden. His passionate zest for life and public spirited persona was epitomized in a 1983 biography entitled 'Big Banker with a Heart', which praised him for his work for numerous charitable and educational organizations. Rowlie FRAZEE will be remembered as a brave soldier who served his country, a respected businessman, an eloquent speaker and a devoted husband, father and grandfather. Our thanks to Doctor Brian Peer, Doctor Julia Wildish and the team of Extra Mural caregivers for their kindness and dedicated professionalism. Arrangements have been entrusted to the care and direction of MacDonald Funeral Home, 20 Marks Street, St. Stephen, New Brunswick (506-466-3110) from where the first visitation will be held on Thursday afternoon from 2-4 p.m. only and then the second visitation will be held on Thursday evening at All Saints Anglican Church, 75 King Street St. Andrews, New Brunswick from 7-9 p.m. only. The funeral service will be held on Friday, August 3rd, from All Saints Anglican Church at 2: 00 p.m. A reception will immediately follow the service in the adjoining church hall.

VICHERT, Gordon Stewart (1934-2007)
Gordon VICHERT was born to missionary parents, Clarence VICHERT and Constance WELCH, in Ibin, West China, and was raised in Ya-an speaking Mandarin and English. In the nineteen thirties, this remote part of China was frontier country: before the age of one, Gordon had survived a riverboat sinking and a bandit attack that killed his nurse as he lay in her arms. His schooling was handled by his parents until he returned from China to attend King Edward High School in Vancouver and Lewis and Clark High School in Spokane, Washington, where he received both the Bausch and Lomb Science Award and the Good Citizenship Award for his thorough knowledge of the U.S. constitution. As editor of the school newspaper, Gordon interviewed Senator Joe McCarthy who, he felt, was embarrassed by questions much more challenging than expected. The subsequent article in the school paper led to calls to have Gordon expelled.
After high school, Gordon worked in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Despite the offer of a scholarship to Reed University, he chose to attend McMaster in Hamilton, the university of many of his forebears, and where his great uncle, Harold Stanley STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, was Dean of Theology. At McMaster, he proceeded to a degree in Honours English, winning a number of prizes and medals, including the Alexander Scholarship. During several summers, Gordon taught English and worked as a labourer for Frontier College at Niagara, Wawa, and Kitimat, British Columbia. Winning an Honour "M" for editing the student newspaper, debating and other activities, he graduated with high honours from McMaster in 1957.
He completed his M.A. at Saint Michaels College at the University of Toronto before he and his wife, Nancy NABLO, traveled to Enugu, Nigeria, where he taught English Literature for 2 years at the Nigerian College of Arts, Science, and Technology and where their daughter Nicola Constance was born.
A second daughter, Rebecca Suzanne, was born during a short period teaching at McMaster, before Gordon completed his Ph.D. at Birkbeck College, University of London, England on a Commonwealth Scholarship. Research for his Ph.D at the British Museum included certain ancient volumes which could be viewed only under the supervision of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Returning to Ontario, he became a member of the McMaster Faculty of English for several years and loved hiking on the Bruce Trail with Nicola, Rebecca, and young son Marcus Gregory.
Gordon left academic life to become both a candidate and an administrator for the Ontario New Democratic Party, first in Hamilton and later in Toronto, holding the positions of General Secretary and Ontario President. As a candidate for the New Democratic Party in the riding of Hamilton-Wentworth, Gordon was among the first in the long fight to clean up pollution in Hamilton and preserve Coot's Paradise and other wilderness areas. Gordon enjoyed telling the story of giving an impassioned anti-pollution speech at an all-candidates meeting; after what he thought was an especially well-reasoned plea for new environmental policies, he turned the microphone over to one of his opponents, the front runner in the election, who cleared his throat and intoned gravely, "I too, am for pollution."
Gordon and his second wife, Janice McARTHUR, moved to Saskatchewan where he worked with Premier Allan Blakeney as a special assistant and speech writer, and where he organized the Cultural Policy Secretariat. A son, Keir John, was born in Regina.
Seconded to Roy Romanow in November of 1981, Gordon was among the advisors assisting in the "Kitchen Accord" which many believe helped enshrine the Charter of Rights and Freedoms in the Constitution.
Those who encountered Gordon in the political world knew his principles, historical expertise, and passion for debate made him a great ally and formidable opponent.
In Saskatchewan, as he was enjoying a new career and new family, Gordon was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. Relocating to West China, he taught English for two years in Xining, near his boyhood home, and where virtually no Westerners had been seen since before the Cultural Revolution. When he passed through his childhood town, local people could be heard calling his father's name. During this period, Gordon and Janice's daughter Hilary Jane (Ning Ning) was born, within view of the Tibetan Himalayas.
Gordon and his family settled in Vancouver, British Columbia where he lectured in English Literature for the University of British Columbia and the Open Learning University as much as his health would allow. For a two-year term, he was appointed by the British Columbia Lieutenant Governor to the Medical and Health Care Services Appeal Board.
It was Gordon's belief that higher education should be available to anyone who wanted it, not just those who could afford it. He particularly enjoyed his work at Frontier College and at the Open Learning University. Doctor VICHERT will be remembered by his students as a vibrant and accomplished lecturer whose particular interest was Eighteenth Century Satire.
Eldest of three boys, Gordon was brother to Bruce and to Alan, both of British Columbia.
Gordon's Friends and family are grateful that he so easily shared his love of conversation, travel, political observation, literature, hiking and film. Everyone who knew him continues to benefit from this generosity.
Donations in Gordon's memory to the Pacific Parkinson's Research Centre or the Bruce Trail Society are gratefully requested in lieu of flowers.
Please write to gordonvichertmemorial@gmail.com for information about a memorial service to be held in early 2008.

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.
