WOOLDRIDGE o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-10-13 published
WOOLDRIDGE, Nancy (1934-2007)
Passed away peacefully on Sunday September 30, 2007 at Langley Hospital after a short illness. Predeceased by her beloved husband Gordon. She will be sadly missed by her son Bruce Read (Eugenia), her grandchildren Benjamin and Crescentia, her great-grandchildren, Paul, Sarah, Elizabeth, and Georgia and her many nephews and nieces.
Nancy had a long and successful career as an entrepreneur. At various times in her life she was a banker, a jewelry and antique dealer, and an interior designer. She was also an accomplished home business woman long before the concept became common.
Nancy was most proud of her position as founder and president of the Canadian Grandparent's Rights Assn. Through the association, which she founded in 1984, she was at the forefront of efforts to allow grandparents to maintain relationships with their grandchildren and to seek legislative change to achieve this goal. She donated literally thousands of hours of her time each year to assist grandparents in her community, and throughout British Columbia and Canada. She was instrumental in lobbying to have the British Columbia Family Relations Act amended in 1998 to recognize that grandparents' rights are to be considered when custody and access issues arise in family disputes. Nancy also appeared before parliamentary committees in Ottawa in an effort to have a similar amendment incorporated into the Divorce Act.
In recognition of her efforts on behalf of grandparents and the entire community Nancy received a Certificate of Appreciation, International Year of the Family, 1994, The Distinguished Service to Family Award, 1995, and was nominated under the Volunteer, Community and Humanitarian Service Category for the Women of Distinction Awards 1999. She was also featured in "The Best Years" a documentary on her accomplishments and was featured in numerous newspaper and magazine articles.
Nancy's devotion and tireless energy will be greatly missed by grandparents throughout the country.
There will be no service at Nancy's request but a memorial tea will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations to British Columbia Children's Hospital would be greatly appreciated and would recognize Nancy's love of children.

WOOLL o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-12-31 published
Pilot survived Swiss internment to start his own aerospace company
Community-minded manufacturer who gave up being a test pilot and band leader served as mayor of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, and launched a successful campaign to save a local hospital
By Lisa FITTERMAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S10
Montreal -- Gerald WOOLL used silence to both disarm people and make them squirm. It was just his curmudgeonly way, especially when he was being introduced to one of his three daughters' Friends. He'd go "Hmm," waggle his thick eyebrows and wait an inordinately long time before asking "Where are you from?" Then, he'd revert back to being silent.
"He could make knees quake but, underneath, he was such a softie," said his daughter, Susan WOOLL. "He never did verbalize his emotions a lot."
Instead, Mr. WOOLL, a community-minded aerospace entrepreneur whose illustrious curriculum vitae includes a stint in the early 1960s as mayor of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, wrote letters, employing them as if they were actual conversations, however one-sided. It didn't matter if the person he was writing to was in the next room or halfway across the world. Many a time, said his daughter, there'd be a knock on her door and she'd find her father on the doorstep, holding an envelope that he'd simply hand her before turning around to walk back home. It might have contained a thought he just wanted to get down on paper before he forgot it or a plea to reconsider what he thought a rash course of action. Confrontation wasn't his way. Better, he thought, to have something tangible that could be read over and over, something that would give perspective and blessed distance.
Ms. WOOLL recalled that once, after she'd informed her parents she was engaged to a man she'd been dating for six months -- a man they hadn't yet met because they'd been on an extended vacation -- her father wrote her a letter that began with the observation that perhaps it wasn't his place to say anything. "But there's nothing wrong with long engagements," it continued. "Think long and hard about what you are going to do because marriage is one of the most important steps you take in life and the current divorce rate shows that all too many people are not taking that into account."
In the end, Ms. WOOLL didn't go through with the nuptials and she thanked her father for his not-so-subtle but gentle prompting. "He expected you to take his letters away with you and read them. If you wanted to talk about it, fine. If not, he'd never raise it again."
Gerry WOOLL grew up in Peterborough, Ontario, where he was the middle child of three born to Charles and Effie WOOLL. He experienced a strict upbringing that revolved around the precepts of the Presbyterian Church: playing cards or music was not allowed on Sundays, alcohol was forbidden, period, and the motto to live by was "service above self." That's not to say life couldn't be fun. A life-long fan of such big-band jazz musicians as Glen Miller and Duke Ellington, he learned to play the clarinet. By the time the Second World War broke out he was fronting Gerry Wooll and His Orchestra throughout the Peterborough area.
With the start of the war, he knew he had to combine that expectation of service to others with another life-long interest -- this one in airplanes. He decided to join the Royal Air Force and in late 1939 he shipped out (with his clarinet) for England to begin combat pilot training.
Over the course of the bloody conflict, he flew no less than 85 missions, with his last one, on August 24, 1942, ending in near disaster. Mr. WOOLL and his navigator, Jack Fielden, had been assigned to surreptitiously photograph the construction of two enemy cruisers in Italian seaports along the Adriatic. They'd just flown over Reims in northern France and were approaching the Swiss border when they noticed an increase in the temperature of the port engine. Emergency measures didn't help. Soon, glycol fumes were spewing out of the overflow vent, followed by paint peeling off the starboard engine cowlings, indicating a fire. With one engine failing and the other aflame, they knew they had to make a landing, no matter that they were already violating Swiss neutrality and would in all likelihood have to face the consequences once they were on the ground.
After landing in a field near Bern, the two men found themselves surrounded by about 50 Swiss soldiers who'd been conducting manoeuvres nearby, and they spent the next four months in an internment camp near Lausanne. It was a stressful time, and cold -- Mr. WOOLL always maintained that the winter coat he was given by the International Red Cross had belonged to the actor Douglas Fairbanks.
Finally, the Allies arranged for them to be freed in a swap for three German pilots who had been interned in Britain. Before leaving the camp, Mr. WOOLL took down the names and addresses of every one of the 100 or so remaining internees (British soldiers, all) so he could make contact with their families and send all the prisoners assuring, newsy and uncensored letters when he got back to England. True to his nature, he did just that.
After the war, the Royal Canadian Air Force seconded Mr. WOOLL to the de Havilland Aircraft Company outside Toronto to work as a test pilot. But he wanted to go into business for himself so in 1951 he purchased a hangar at Niagara District Airport that still houses the aerospace parts company he founded, Genaire Inc.
He and his wife, Audrey (whom he married in 1942), settled into a historic home in Niagara-on-the-Lake and raised their three daughters according to the strict church principles with which he'd grown up. He set a high bar, compiling a record of service that, besides his term as mayor, included serving on the town's Hydro Commission, the Public Library Board, the Police Commission, Brock University's Board of Trustees and as an elder at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church.
Through his long-time involvement with the Rotary Club, he helped raise millions of dollars to combat polio. And when he was well into his 80s, he led the charge to save the local hospital from being closed.
"The government was reorganizing, which meant that if people in Niagara-on-the-Lake needed a hospital, they would have had to go to St. Catharines," recalled Ms. WOOLL. " Our father said, 'No, this is not going to happen.' When he was told it was beyond him to change things, he said 'Just watch me.' "
He came up with the slogan, "Save Our Sick" (SOS), started a petition and, sure enough, the hospital is still open today.
Even when his wife died in 1995, he didn't slow down, continuing to go into the office until as late as last year, smoking one cigar each evening and concentrating on his grandchildren.
"We have so many pictures of him teaching them to skate. He looks so joyful," said Ms. WOOLL. " You know, once I asked him why he hadn't expanded the company and he replied that he'd made a perfectly comfortable living that allowed him the time to do other things in his life -- that was him all over."
Gerald Ray WOOLL was born on September 15, 1913, in Peterborough, Ontario He died on December 14, 2007, after suffering a series of strokes. He was 94. He leaves his daughters Lorraine, Mary and Susan and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Tourist dies after attack by panhandlers
By Matthew TREVISAN, Page A1
A tourist to Toronto succumbed to his injuries on the weekend after being attacked by an enraged gang of panhandlers in a downtown neighbourhood.
Four panhandlers already facing several assault charges will likely see those charges upgraded after Ross HAMMOND, of St. Catharines, died of his injuries Saturday, police say.
Councillor Michael THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said yesterday that panhandling in Toronto is "essentially out of control."
It has now come to a point, he said, where an innocent person has died.
"I'm saddened obviously to hear that it's come to this," said Mr. Thompson (Ward 37, Scarborough Centre), who was attacked by a panhandler in Nathan Phillips Square in April, 2006.
"It's not unexpected. I think it will happen again if nothing is done."
The city is in the midst of a pilot project to study aggressive panhandling. However, the project doesn't cover the area near Trinity Bellwoods Park, where Mr. HAMMOND was stabbed.
Mr. HAMMOND reportedly underwent several operations before dying early Saturday morning after receiving multiple stab wounds during an altercation at about 12: 30 a.m. Thursday.
Toronto police said Mr. HAMMOND and a friend were walking west on Queen Street West toward Niagara Street when two men and two women in their early 20s approached them and asked for money.
They refused, and a verbal confrontation quickly turned into a physical melee. Mr. HAMMOND, 32, was stabbed in the chest and back, and some of the accused also received minor stab wounds.
One witness said he saw one person sprinting across Queen Street with a knife in his hand. He reportedly attempted to get away by jumping onto a moving taxi, which was left bloodied, in full view of two streetcars.
Reached yesterday at the couple's home in St. Catharines, Mr. HAMMOND's widow, Kara, said any family statement will be made through Toronto police.
"This is not a good time," she said.
Sergeant Tim BURROWS said he didn't expect the incident to affect how visitors view the city with respect to panhandlers.
"I would say 99 per cent of our panhandlers, though some could get aggressive in asking for money… know their place and what they're doing, and don't affect the majority of the public."
However, at Mayor David Miller's executive committee meeting in late May, restaurateurs said panhandlers routinely steal beer, food and tips from sidewalk patios. A downtown Tim Hortons owner told the committee she was left bleeding after she was slapped in the face by a "panhandler" she asked to leave her doughnut shop.
A two-month city pilot project in which city workers work with people panhandling between 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. in the area from Spadina Avenue to Jarvis Street, and from Yorkville Avenue to Queens Quay, concludes on September 30. A report to the executive committee is due in 2008.
When approached by panhandlers, the public shouldn't make eye contact and continue walking past them, Sgt. BURROWS said.
The four accused of no fixed address appeared in court Friday, but could be facing murder charges this week, police said.
On Friday, Sarah McDERMIT, 22, was charged with aggravated assault, assault causing bodily harm, assaulting a peace officer and obstructing a peace officer. Jeremy WOOLLEY, 21, was charged with aggravated assault, assault causing bodily harm and obstructing a peace officer. Nicole KISH, 21, was charged with aggravated assault and assault causing bodily harm, and Douglas FRESH, 22, was charged with aggravated assault.

Snowplow operator not charged in fatal crash
By James RUSK, Page A16
No charges will be laid against the snowplow driver involved in a fatal crash last Sunday that killed a woman who had pulled to the side of Highway 401 to fix a wiper blade, police said yesterday.
Amber VERDONI, 50, of Mississauga was standing by the passenger side of her van, which she had pulled to the side of the highway under an underpass at Elgin Road near London during a blinding snowstorm, when it was hit by a snowplow and pushed into her.
She was killed instantly. Her two children, who were in the van, were not hurt but were treated in hospital for shock. The driver of the snowplow was also treated in hospital for shock, Ontario Provincial Police said.
The police also said they conducted a thorough investigation before concluding that the snowplow driver would not be charged.
Ontario Provincial Police Staff Sergeant Cam WOOLLEY, a traffic safety expert, said the tragic accident underlines the fact that the shoulder of the road is not a safe place.
He noted that of more than 100 Ontario Provincial Police cruisers a year that get hit by other vehicles, most are pulled over on the shoulder of a highway with their warning lights flashing.
"The most dangerous place to be [in a stopped vehicle] is in a live lane. The second most dangerous place is on a shoulder, because you are only separated [from moving traffic] by a few centimetres and all it takes is some poor visibility, slippery roads, inattentive drivers… there are lot of ways to get hit," Staff Sgt. WOOLLEY said.
What should drivers do when forced to pull over on a major highway? Staff Sgt. WOOLLEY said that on the first indication of problems, a driver should look for a safe location, such as a service centre, a truck inspection station or an exit leading to a safer place on a crossroad.
Many drivers pulling over to the side choose an underpass in the belief it is safer than other parts of the shoulder. But Staff Sgt. WOOLLEY said this is actually riskier, as visibility may be reduced by shadows, and it is a natural choke point with a narrow shoulder bounded by a concrete bridge abutment, into which a car can be pushed.
If a driver is forced in an emergency to pull onto the shoulder - and that is the only time it can be done legally - an excellent spot is the one that police cars often choose, tucked in as far to the side as they can get just beyond an overpass, as the bridge provides some protection.
Elsewhere, the best place is as far to the right as possible in a flat section away from the brow of a hill, as that gives drivers coming up from behind the best chance to see a vehicle and avoid a collision, he said.
