With great sadness we announce the death of Jean-Luc POULIN on Saturday, July 28th, 2007, peacefully at his home, surrounded by his wife and children, at the age of 67.

Favourite uncle of at last count 52 nieces and nephews.
A teacher of French par excellence at O'Neill Collegiate, Dunbarton H.S., Eastdale Collegiate and Lahr Secondary in Lahr, Germany, Jean-Luc was also French Co-ordinator for the Durham Board for four years.

BUTTEDAHL, Doctor Paz
Dr. Paz BUTTEDAHL, 65, passed away peacefully on October 8, 2007. She is predeceased by her loving husband of 25 years, Doctor Knute BUTTEDAHL. She is survived by her husband, John K. PARK, daughter Maria Beck BUTTEDAHL (Bob BECK), son John BUTTEDAHL (Lisa FERRARI), brother Valerio GOYCOOLEA (Rebecca PALMA,) and sisters Sofia GOYCOOLEA (Richard E. LANE) and Loreto GOYCOOLEA. Paz was a proud aunt of Claudia GOYCOOLEA (Mauricio MEYER,) Alexandre COULON (Maureen COULON- MENASHE,) Oliver GOYCOOLEA and great-aunt to Nicholas MEYER. She was a loving step-mother to Kim and Gary BUTTEDAHL and proud grandmother to Caleb and Alisha GRUNERT. Her family wishes to join in expressing all their love and appreciation for the extraordinary person Paz was, and for the outstanding contributions she made to the world. Paz was born in Santiago, Chile, and created a vast network of Friends, colleagues and students throughout the world, garnered through a long and distinguished career. The breadth of her experience spanned work with universities, international development organizations and agencies, and the Canadian military. Whatever the setting, common threads ran through all of her work: a passion for fostering international and intercultural understanding; a focus on sustainable development; and a belief in the possibility of creating an equitable and socially just world. The academic portion of Paz's career involved teaching at several universities in Canada, the United States, and Latin America, including a faculty position at the University of British Columbia and most recently, at Royal Roads University. Her work at the universities was always characterized by a passionate commitment to her students, the injection of an international perspective and comparative education approach to her courses, and a desire to create international partnerships linking students and educators from the developing world with those in Canada. Paz was sought after as a researcher and educator specializing in international development issues, and was a consultant with many international agencies and organizations. These included the Canadian International Development Agency, The United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the Organization of American States. Paz also worked for almost a decade with the International Development Research Centre in Ottawa. As Deputy Director of the Fellowships and Awards Division, her focus was on the development of human resources and the strengthening of institutions in the developing world through the education and training of their researchers and project staff. Paz strongly believed in learning as a crucial component in the achievement of sustainable development. In the early 1990s, as international development issues became more and more intertwined with issues of security, Paz was invited to attend the National Defense College in Kingston, Ontario, where she also contributed as the academic advisor to the Commandant. A subsequent posting to the Centre for National Security Studies provided a base for her research linking issues of sustainable development to those of human security. Paz's vast storehouse of knowledge and experience found a home and became invested in the creation of the Master of Arts in Human Security and Peacebuilding program at Royal Roads University in Victoria, British Columbia. As founder and program head, Paz worked tirelessly to build the program and to ensure its sustainability and its relevance to the international development and security issues of today's world. The Master of Arts in Human Security and Peacebuilding program was to be Paz's final contribution in a lifetime of notable achievements. In spite of failing health during the past months, she found strength in providing ongoing leadership to the program and in planning for its future. Paz, with her indomitable spirit and her vision of a world that might be, has enriched and influenced the lives of hundreds of Friends and colleagues around the world. Her loss will be deeply mourned. A celebration of her life will be held on at 1 p.m. on October 21 at Royal Roads University, 2nd Floor Grant Building, 2005 Sooke Rd. Victoria, British Columbia.

RUDNEY, Harry
Husband, father, scientist. Born April 14, 1918, in Toronto. Died May 30 of cancer in Cincinnati, Ohio, aged 89.
By Sue ANDREW, Page L6
My uncle Harry was born into a family of struggling Jewish immigrants. Neither of his parents could read or write English. With four sisters crammed into what few sections of the house weren't rented out, Harry was relegated to sleeping on a cot in the dining room.
Despite his obvious academic potential, he attended the Central Technical School in Toronto to learn a skill and begin work as soon as possible.
After graduating, Harry took a contract job as a lab technician with the Toronto school board, setting up experiments at night for classes the next day. He developed a keen interest in biological science and frequently attended public lectures given by University of Toronto professors, including one by Bruno MENDEL, a German Jewish refugee and cancer researcher from the Banting Institute. After the lecture, Harry wrote a letter to Doctor MENDEL suggesting an experiment.
Dr. MENDEL was so impressed that he invited Harry to tour the lab and introduced him to Sir Frederick Banting, who must have recognized his potential as well because he persuaded the school board to let Harry break his contract to work at the institute.
Dr. MENDEL took Harry under his wing and mentored him in every way, even paying for his tuition at University of Toronto from his own pocket. Harry graduated with a degree in biochemistry and physiology in 1947. He applied three or four times to the University of Toronto medical school, only to be rejected repeatedly because of quotas for Jewish students in place at the time.
Unfazed and never bitter, he moved to Cleveland, received his PhD in 1952 at Western Reserve University and eventually worked his way up to chair of biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.
While attending university in Toronto, Harry began a courtship with his little sister Pearl's close friend Bernice SCHNIEDER/SNIDER/SNYDER, whom he suddenly noticed wasn't so little any more. They remained loving soulmates for more than 60 years of marriage. They had two sons and, with intelligence and warmth, worked to meet the challenge of nurturing the unique qualities in each of them.
Harry further distinguished himself in the field of cholesterol biosynthesis and it was his fundamental research that was the basis for the cholesterol-lowering drugs commonly known as statins that are taken by millions of people everyday.
I asked him once if he ever felt resentful of the fortunes made from his research, and he said it never even occurred to him to exert proprietary rights over his work. His motives were pure and simple. He only wanted to contribute. He said once that he was determined to live long enough to see the results of the Human Genome Project. He never feared the future. He embraced it.
Sue ANDREW is Harry's niece.
