CANNING, Katherine Jane (née WEIDER)
Died on January 8, 2007 at the age of 64 after a long battle with cancer. Shortly before her passing she was able to enjoy one last snowfall… that was long awaited. On October 25th, 1942 a special and unique person came into the world in Collingwood, Ontario. Kathy grew up to be a vivacious, smart, classy, generous, caring, stubborn and always fashionable woman. Those who knew her will tell you she always stood out, and lit up a room no matter where she was. Kathy will be deeply missed by her loving husband, Gordon CANNING, President of Blue Mountain Resorts Limited and her daughter Andrea, a Correspondent for ABC's Good Morning America, based in New York. Both were by her side until the end. Kathy is survived by her brother George WEIDER, sister Helen McGILLIVRAY and twin sister Anna MARIK. Kathy is also survived by her 100 year old mother, Helen WEIDER. Kathy's father, Jozo WEIDER, who passed away in 1971, moved from Czechoslovakia along with his wife Helen in 1939 and together they founded Blue Mountain Resorts Limited. A whiz at math and sharp as a tack, Kathy achieved a B.Sc. in mathematics at McGill University in Montreal. She went on to work as a computer programmer at the Toronto Telegram. It was in Toronto she met her husband Gord, also a computer programmer at Imperial Oil. Kathy returned to her roots and moved back to Blue Mountain in 1971. As a young girl she worked for her dad, Jozo at the Blue Mountain Pottery and waited tables. As a grown woman she managed Blue Mountain's retail, sold condominiums and always made the resort look beautiful and elegant with her interior design skills. Kathy was also a very talented downhill skier who raced for the Canadian National B Ski Team and won such honors as the Ladies Quebec Senior Alpine Championship in 1964. Kathy went on to race for the University of Grenoble in France in 1965. She could be seen almost daily on the slopes of Blue Mountain until her illness took over. Perhaps Kathy's greatest loves were fashion and Paris. She reveled in designer clothes and that 'great buy' but also sewed many of her own clothes, spending hours in her sewing room. Kathy also devoted a great deal of time to the Blue Mountain Special Olympics program acting as the team manager. Our greatest thanks to the Weiders and CANNINGs and their Friends who offered so much support and care until the end. The many visits, calls and deliveries of food and flowers are very much appreciated. The constant ringing phone and the many knocks at the door were proof of how many people deeply cared for Kathy. Special thanks to Kathy's sister-in-law Beverly McMASTER founder of We Care Home Health, her partner Gary MOORE and mother-in-law Sylvia CANNING who were her angels here on earth and couldn't have taken better care of her. They were always there for her. What everyone should know is that Kathy fought until the end and never once complained about the hand she was dealt. She was a strong person who should serve as an inspiration. Kathy left this world the way she lived with class, beauty and dignity. Kathy's memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 13 at 1: 00 p.m. at The Weider Room in the Blue Mountain Inn Conference Centre at Blue Mountain. In lieu of flowers, the family have requested donations be made to 'Titz'N Glitz' care of Front Line Collingwood Foundation (www.frontlinecollingwood.ca/titznglitz.htm) in Kathy's memory. Friends may leave comments for the family by visiting www.fawcettfuneralhomes.com

SULLIVAN, John Joseph (August 24, 1926-August 25, 2007)
Peacefully at his Glenforest home, on Saturday, August 25, 2007, one day after his 81st birthday, following a valiant struggle with cancer. John, the eldest son of the late Doctor Orland P. and Marie SULLIVAN (née ROCHE,) will be sorely missed by his loving brother, David, his devoted sister, Ann (CANNING) and her husband Dr. Hugh CANNING, and his cherished youngest sister, Patricia (VINCENT) and her husband, Eric. John now joins his late sister-in-law, and dear friend, Audrey SULLIVAN. Uncle John was an overwhelming presence. He contributed to the lives of his many nieces and nephews: Mary, John and Ruth Ann SULLIVAN; Ann Marie, Hughie, who predeceased him earlier this year, Michael and Ted CANNING Cathy, Chris, Patty and Joanne VINCENT; as well as their respective spouses. His singular perspective and inimitable interests, coupled with his endless generosity of spirit and time, touched a third generation of great nieces and nephews. From Leaf games, movies, and 'the Ex', to late night hamburgers, donuts and Night Sky Gazing-101, he provided a dimension and substance that will never fade from memory. 'Unc' sustained a unique presence in each person's life. A natural master of mathematics and education, 'Mr. SULLIVAN' created a special bond with his many students at Sutton and Milton District High Schools during his more than 35 years as a teacher. His one-of-a-kind personality, colourful wardrobe and love of hockey and its uniforms brought joy and laughter to his classroom. John will be intensely missed by those whose lives he touched and to whom he brought brilliant and unforgettable colour. Who could forget: the man wearing the orange shirt walking from Orillia to Toronto; the slideshows that chronicle the events of his life his pictures of the great structures of the world; and his drawings of his own personal army of paper hockey and football players. John's passion was exploring his surroundings and sharing the joy of his experiences with those he loved. John carved a special path for himself through this world. He was irrepressible, and is, irreplaceable. Friends may call at the Trull Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 2704 Yonge Street (5 blocks south of Lawrence), on Wednesday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Blessed Sacrament Church (Yonge Street, south of Lawrence) on Thursday morning at 11 o'clock. Following the Mass a reception will be held at the church. Internment Mount Hope Cemetery. If desired, remembrances may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

MARIK, Anna (née WEIDER) (1942-2007)
It is with great sadness that her family must announce that Anna succumbed to cancer as did her twin sister earlier this year. Anna died peacefully, surrounded by her family, at the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital on October 16. Anna and Katherine were born to Helen and Jozo WEIDER in Collingwood in 1942. Along with her siblings, Anna went to elementary school in the one-room school house at Craigleith and graduated from Collingwood Collegiate. After that she earned a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of British Columbia. Like her sisters Helen and Katherine she was a top-ranked Canadian junior ski racer and won a Canadian Junior Alpine Championship. She was a talented pianist and taught music in Lillooet, British Columbia and later in Penetanguishine. Anna married Josef MARIK, who had immigrated from Czechoslovakia and with her husband carried on the Czechoslovak legacy of her parents, the founders of the Blue Mountain Resort. Anna and Josef settled in Craigleith in the original family homestead and gradually turned the old farm house into a cozy home. Anna was a unique, outgoing, inquiring spirit, who passionately loved books, animals and the outdoor life. She loved being with her family and many Czech Friends on their island near Parry Sound on Georgian Bay. She was proud of their children. Tessa is a gifted musician, presently studying, performing and teaching piano in Florence, Italy. Tony founded and manages his own company, PHI Media. Anna is survived by her husband and two children, her mother Helen MARIK, 101 years old, her brother George and sister Helen. She is mourned also by her other family members: brothers-in-law, Gordon CANNING and Donald McGILLIVRAY; sister-in-law Barbara MARIK; nephews Alec and James McGILLIVRAY and Michael MARIK nieces Andrea CANNING, Gillian McGILLIVRAY and Katherine MARIK. The family would like to thank her outstanding physician, Doctor Peter SAVAGE, and the extremely caring staff of the Collingwood General and Marine, who made Anna as comfortable as possible in the face of her severe illness.

Nature-loving steel worker inspired the creation of Ontario's Bruce Trail
Self-taught naturalist who grew up on the Saskatchewan Prairie moved to Hamilton and fell in love with the Niagara Escarpment. 'Without him, it would not have started.'
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S10
For a man with an insatiable curiosity about the natural world, the thought of losing the rugged beauty of Ontario's Niagara Escarpment to development was unthinkable. "Not all of us can study ecology, but we should all have the opportunity to walk under ancient trees on a forest floor that is rich with the things that sustain life," said Ray LOWES, who is credited for inspiring the creation of the Bruce Trail.
In 1968, the self-taught naturalist appealed to the Niagara Escarpment Conference to consider preserving the route, a marked hiking trail on a rocky ridge that stretches more than 800 kilometres across Ontario, for posterity. "It is this right of access to places of natural beauty that I plead for," he said in a speech. "The simplicity of our request is astounding."
The trail had opened the year before as part of Canada's centennial celebrations, but nothing had ever been said of its future. For his part, he knew exactly what was required: "We just want a strip of land that will be left alone - not manicured, not landscaped, not serviced by multilane highways or 'parkways' - and not through new subdivisions. It's not much to ask. A later generation will demand it."
It all started after Mr. Lowe hiked portions of the 3,501-kilometre Appalachian Trail, a route from Maine to Georgia that is maintained by a loose association of about 30 U.S. hiking clubs. "If they could do it," he asked himself, "why couldn't we?"
At a meeting of the Hamilton Naturalists' Club in 1959, he turned to wildlife artist Robert Bateman, who was also a member of the club, and wondered aloud, "What would you think of a hiking trail winding up the Niagara Escarpment from one end to the other?"
Mr. Bateman liked the idea and, with the support of the Hamilton Naturalists' Club, Mr. LOWES approached the Federation of Ontario Naturalists. Before long, a four-man committee was struck, with Mr. LOWES as secretary along with nature lovers Philip GOSLING, Robert MacLAREN and Norman PEARSON. For the next two years, they pored over maps and plotted a route from Queenston, near Niagara Falls, to Tobermory, on the tip of the Bruce Peninsula.
"He had the dream and he got it going," said Mr. GOSLING, a Guelph, Ontario, businessman. "Without him, it would not have started."
They started knocking on doors in towns and villages along the escarpment to negotiate access, and soon established trail organizations in several communities. The also reached access agreements with landowners on the planned route. The Bruce Trail Association was formed, and by 1967, the trail was open. The association slowly grew in size; by the late 1970s, it was able to start purchasing land to build a permanent, protected route.
While Mr. LOWES spent time getting his hands dirty building sections of the trail, his main role was that of promoter and office co-ordinator. An impassioned speaker, he gave speeches to raise support and awareness, and used his gift for promotion to attract volunteers and media attention. In the early 1960s, The Toronto Telegram was reporting on hikes held along the trail.
For 20 years, Mr. LOWES served as a director and secretary of the Bruce Trail Association. In 1983, he was made the association's honorary president, which today has the support of more than 8,000 members and 1,000 volunteers. "He was really like a father figure to the whole thing," said Bill CANNON, president of the Bruce Trail Association in the late 1960s.
Mr. LOWES was a child of nature. Raised in rural south-central Saskatchewan, his love of the outdoors developed during the countless hours he spent as a child exploring the countryside near his home. His family ran a general store in the community of Willows, not far from the town of Assiniboia, and he was outside observing birdlife, catching gophers and adopting coyotes at every opportunity.
"He always had that spirit of getting out in nature," said his long-time friend Alan ERNEST, the land trust co-ordinator at the Hamilton Naturalists' Club.
Mr. LOWES left home as a teenager and set out across the country to find work. To eke out a living, he sold everything from brushes and men's wear to advertising space in a Catholic publication. Along the way, he met Jane CHAMBERLAIN; the two married in 1933. Three years later, they moved to Hamilton.
The LOWES home, which was within walking distance of the Bruce Trail, soon became a playground and nature classroom for neighbourhood children. They joined Mr. LOWES for Sunday hikes, which usually ended with ice cream cones.
Although Mr. LOWES had none of his own, "he loved getting children, in particular, interested in nature," Mr. ERNEST said.
In 1938, Mr. LOWES joined Stelco, the steel manufacturer. He stayed for the next 38 years, eventually becoming chief open-hearth metallurgist.
Away from the foundry, he loved to walk the gentle valleys and rocky cliffs of the Bruce Trail and would average about 20 kilometres a week along its length. One of his favourite pastimes was to take a morning in Niagara's Short Hills area, followed by a slice of pie at his favourite restaurant.
"He was a delightful person to go on a walk with," Mr. CANNON said. "He was full of stories about the natural world."
Mr. LOWES never attended university, but was intensely curious about nature and taught himself all he could about birds, insects and plants. When something caught his interest, he sought to know everything he could about it, Mr. ERNEST said. About 12 years ago, he visited a friend in Arkansas and, while there, toured a plant that processed black walnuts. He was hooked. After learning all he could about the nuts, he returned to Ontario, contacted the local nut-growers association and proceeded to plant thousands of black walnuts. To his delight, they bore fruit.
Believing that we are all interrelated in the cycle of nature, Mr. LOWES was passionate about protecting the Niagara Escarpment from development. Through his work on the Bruce Trail, he helped spur the Ontario government to establish the Niagara Escarpment Commission in 1973. Mr. LOWES was appointed a founding member of the commission, which was formed to regulate development on the escarpment. After serving for about a decade, he resigned in 1984, saying he felt the body was more concerned with local political interests than conservation.
"I'm kind of sorry to be off the commission," he told The Globe and Mail at the time. "But I think it was the only protest I could make. Maybe now they'll pull up their socks and fly right."
Despite the designation of the Niagara Escarpment as a World Biosphere Reserve in 1990, just under half of the Bruce Trail and its 300 kilometres of associated side trails are currently on protected land. The remaining 53 per cent is on private land, although the Bruce Trail Association continues to buy up parcels each year. Last year, more than $1.3-million was spent securing land on the escarpment; the association now manages 2,178 hectares of land. To buy the remaining trail, the association estimates it needs more than $60-million.
After retiring from Stelco in the early 1970s, Mr. LOWES travelled to more than 40 countries and continued to spend as much time as he could hiking and exploring. Seeing himself as a rugged individualist, he was proud of his physical stamina, Mr. CANNON said. He remembers the delight Mr. LOWES took when one May they swam together in Georgian Bay while ice floes floated nearby. Just this summer, he talked to a friend about mathematical patterns found in the natural world. "That brain of his was always working," Mr. ERNEST said.
Although he took to calling himself a "curmudgeon" late in life and "didn't suffer fools lightly," Mr. LOWES received honorary degrees from Brock and McMaster universities for his work on the Bruce Trail. In 2005, The Bruce Trail Association created the Ray Lowes Side Trail in Hamilton in his honour.
Until he turned 90, the year he broke his hip, he had walked five kilometres of the Bruce Trail three or four times a week.
Ray LOWES was born in Saskatchewan on March 23, 1911. He died August 29, 2007, at Saint Peter's Residence at Chedoke in Hamilton after briefly slipping into a coma. He was 96. He was predeceased by his wife Jane, who died in 1986, and by his brothers Warren and Gerald.
