MacCORMACK, Elizabeth Ann
On July 1, 2007, Elizabeth Ann MacCORMACK, beloved daughter of John R. MacCORMACK, Prof. Emeritus of History, Saint Mary's University and Ann Vibeke MacCORMACK, formerly of London, England, and wife of Paul JENKINS, died after an arduous but gallant battle against the ravages of multiple sclerosis. Elizabeth was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia on October 12, 1961 and after attending public schools in Halifax and Cambridge, England, graduated in Honours History from the University of King's College in 1983. She was active in the media and for some time a production assistant of the well known ATV program, Live at Five. She also strongly supported Amnesty International.
Following her 1989 marriage to Paul they spent some five years in Japan teaching English as a second language in Osaka where, it may be noted, her school employed her picture to advertise itself on subway trains. Leaving Japan, they spent time in Spain, close to four years in Mexico, before arriving in Kensington Market, Toronto in 2000.
Eventually her relentlessly progressing illness necessitated hospitalization. She enjoyed the expert and loving care of the staff of the Queen Elizabeth Centre (Toronto Rehab) before final transfer to Saint_Joseph's Intensive Care Unit. The family would like now to express their deep gratitude to the staffs of both institutions, her former caregivers and particularly to Alex GEDDES for his many visits that Elizabeth much appreciated and to her her aunt Mary MacFADYEN and cousins Christie and Sandy MacFADYEN who so eased her last months.
She is survived by her husband Paul; parents; sister Kirsten MacCORMACK (Donald WESTIN;) brothers Allan (Annie Yu Chen;) John nieces Katrina, Fiona, Alison, Ai; nephews Niall, Tamaki, Chen San; aunts Mary MacFADYEN, Anna GEDDES, Margaret HODGKIN, Elizabeth HILL; and many loving cousins in Canada, England and Denmark.
A "Remembering Elizabeth" gathering will be held at 6: 30 p.m. on Thursday, July 5, 2007 in the Cafeteria of Queen Elizabeth Centre, 130 Dunn Avenue., Toronto. Her funeral will take place at a later date in Halifax. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations in Elizabeth's memory to Amnesty International, St. Christopher House or the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Quarry tragedy claims teen
A fall at a Beachville quarry claims a budding photojournalist, 19, while another man is killed by a train at Richmond Row.
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, and Glynnis MAPP, Sun Media, Mon., July 30, An Oxford County teen about to embark on his dream of a career in photojournalism was one of three men killed in a tragedy-filled weekend in the London area.
Michael STOOP, 19, of Salford, near Ingersoll, was killed about 2 a.m. yesterday when he slipped on loose rocks while hanging out at a quarry in Beachville with five Friends, Oxford County Ontario Provincial Police said.
"It's hard to accept… it's such a loss for us," said STOOP's aunt, Ellen ESSELTINE. "He was a clever and bright kid and a well-liked kid… he was just awesome."
The Ingersoll Collegiate grad, who played on his school's football team, was going to attend Loyalist College in Belleville starting next month to study in its prestigious photojournalism program.
His family just helped him buy a new camera for school.
Police said that after slipping, STOOP fell down the rock embankment at the quarry. He was pronounced dead there.
"He fell about (three metres). It's a very unfortunate thing," said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Mark Foster. "I don't think we've had a quarry death around the area in a long time."
Elsewhere in the region, police investigated the deaths of two other men in separate tragedies: A 23-year-old man who was hit by a train in London near Richmond Row -- less than an hour after STOOP's death -- and a 27-year-old who drowned while boating with Friends in Chatham-Kent.
In the train tragedy, London police said alcohol may have been involved in the death of the 23-year-old man who was killed while crossing the tracks, located near a popular strip of bars.
Police didn't name the man, but said he's not from here.
The incident happened just after 2: 30 a.m. yesterday, at the rail tracks at St. George Street near Piccadilly Street, just north of Richmond Row.
Police don't suspect foul play in the man's death, said Const. Darrin BROWN.
"There is nothing suspicious about it."
BROWN said police didn't know where the man had been before trying to cross the tracks, but police had spoken to a couple of witnesses: who had "dealt with him."
At Mitchell's Bay yesterday, rescue workers continued to search for the body of a 29-year-old Chatham-Kent man who went missing on Lake St. Clair Saturday evening.
The man was out with four others in a small boat off Mitchell's Bay marina, said Chatham-Kent Ontario Provincial Police.
He was in the water about 6 p.m. when his Friends realized he couldn't get back to them.
As they tried to help him get back to the leisure boat -- which was about six kilometres from the marina -- the man slipped under the water, police said.
He is presumed dead, said Chatham-Kent Ontario Provincial Police Const. Aaron McPHAIL.
Members of the Chatham-Kent Fire Department, the Canadian Coast Guard and the Ontario Provincial Police were searching a one-kilometre-square radius for the body of the man while an Ontario Provincial Police helicopter buzzed overhead.
"This is a recovery mission," McPHAIL said.
Police did not identify the man or the passengers.

son of the late Lt. Col. and Mrs. George KEEFFE of Saint John, N.B., in his eighty-ninth year, on October 23, 2007, surrounded by family.
He was predeceased by his wife Macil (Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service) in their sixtieth year of marriage, by his brother George (Royal Canadian Air Force) and his sister Margaret (Canadian Women's Army Corps) all of whom served overseas during World War 2, where he was twice wounded.
He leaves his children Susan (Bill ALLEN,) Shelagh (Barry COBUS,) Penny (John McKAY), Pam (George STRATTON) Michael (Kathleen McFALL), Barbara, eleven grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.
Most of his business life was dedicated to the Life Insurance industry in Canada and Bermuda, where he instituted formal training for professional designations for both sales and office personnel.
Although he had been a member of many clubs in Toronto, Bermuda and St. Simons Island, Georgia, he was most proud of being a "Gunner" and a "Maritimer".
A private family service was held. A celebration of John's life will take place in Muskoka and Saint_John at a future date.

Bruce SMITH, Broadcaster (1919-2006)
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio pioneer who was heard on Toronto airwaves for more than 30 years made his mark in 1947 on the milestone morning show, Toast and Jamboree
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- Bruce SMITH was a morning man who for many years was the autocratic ruler of his own radio program on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Toronto. He chose his own music, and preferred popular tunes of the day rather than the marshal music favoured by Canadian Broadcasting Corporation brass at the time, and even banned certain advertisements, back in the days when Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio ran commercials.
"I ran it lock stock and barrel," Mr. SMITH boasted to Blake KIRBY of The Globe and Mail in 1971. "I selected all the music, wrote and read many of the commercials and allowed what sponsors I wanted, which didn't include beer and cigarettes. That was quite an authority. I just assumed it and nobody objected."
His freedom didn't last forever. Producers gradually wrested control from Mr. SMITH, though his strong personality and success in the ratings meant he had more power than most of them put together.
Mr. SMITH also had a kind of whimsy that is almost unheard of today, but was then common among such fellow broadcasters as Allan McFee and Max Ferguson. For good measure, Mr. SMITH invented a character called Brewster the Rooster, who was introduced to listeners by barnyard sound effects that were followed by a rant done in Brewster's special voice. "Brewster the Rooster was my alter ego," Mr. SMITH once told a reporter. "He became a character through which I could make socially valid points."
Brewster the Rooster proved to be popular with the audience. One day, they lost the tape of Brewster's trademark cock-a-doodle-do and Mr. SMITH reported Brewster had broken his leg skiing and was recuperating at Sunnybrook Hospital. The news of the fictional bird's accident attracted many phone calls and get well cards from listeners.
For many years, Mr. SMITH battled for ratings supremacy with Wally CROUTER of CFRB radio. At the time, the morning radio dial was crowded with the likes of Pierre BERTON, and Charles TEMPLETON on CKEY.
Bruce SMITH grew up in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, where his father was a foreman at the local steel plant. He was a brilliant student and served as president of the student council. When he was 15, he decided he would like to work at CJIC, the local radio station. It had just opened and he marched in and announced he was the man to read newscasts. They gave him a job doing it on weekends.
The following year, young Bruce graduated from high school, but for the time he remained stuck at home. His mother thought he was too young to go to university and made him take a second year of Grade 13. He wrote and passed exams in every subject offered, except Spanish.
While in high school, he was chosen as one of the Canadians to represent the country at the coronation of George VI in 1937. He travelled to London and attended the ceremony in Westminster Abbey.
Shortly after his return home, he was finally allowed to go to the University of Toronto. He graduated in law, which was an undergraduate degree at the time, and served as assistant sports editor of The Varsity, the school paper. During that time, he also wrote a column on college sports for The Globe and Mail. He was in the officer's training plan and joined the army in 1941. He trained in Canada with the signals corps, went to England and landed in France soon after D-Day.
His unit, the South Saskatchewan Regiment, fought in France, Holland and Germany. After the war, he stayed on as a broadcaster to work for the army's radio station and to transmit on British Broadcasting Corporation wavelengths. He didn't leave England until late 1946, long after most Canadians had gone home.
By then, most of his fellow law graduates were well along in their careers, so he decided to take a teacher's certificate. He taught for three months at Danforth Technical School in Toronto before taking his first permanent job in radio at CHUM. One of his fellow announcers was Monty Hall, who went on to be the host of the long-running U.S. television game show, Let's Make a Deal. Mr. SMITH worked at CHUM for a little more than a year before joining the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. At first, he did mundane jobs, such as being the booth announcer, reading out such things as the call letters, station breaks and shorter newscasts.
He got a break when it turned out the morning man had trouble getting up on time. On July 19, 1948, Bruce SMITH became the new morning man and quickly made the program his own. "I even picked a Toronto hit parade to play every Friday. There was really no hit parade in 1950."
Bruce SMITH's morning show was known as Toast and Jamboree, and no other Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio program in Toronto had more listeners. It even outperformed such U. S imports broadcast by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as Don McNeil's Breakfast Club, which ran at 9 a.m., and Ma Perkins, a popular daily soap opera.
Toast and Jamboree made him a household name in Southern Ontario. Despite that, he remained a modest man and was never a prima donna. People who worked with him recall him as being as friendly in person as he was on the air.
"I was a starry-eyed kid and didn't know what Bruce looked like, though I knew his voice," recalled traffic reporter, Jim CURRAN, of his first day at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. "When he said 'Welcome, Jim,' his voice had the same warmth as it did on the radio."
After 23 years doing the morning program, Bruce SMITH was edged out in favour of a younger man, Alex TREBEK, who went on to become the host of Jeopardy, another U.S. game show. In news reports at the time, Mr. SMITH put on a brave face and said how getting up that early wasn't natural, but his colleagues believe he would much rather have kept working the morning shift.
After that, he worked on an afternoon program called The Bruce Smith Show. One of his habits before going to work was to head down to the harbour and check out which ships were in. Later, he became president of the Toronto Marine Historical Society.
Mary McFAYDEN was a producer of his afternoon program for two years. She recalled that on September 2, 1977, they were broadcasting live from the Canadian National Exhibition when a plane practising for the air show suddenly crashed into Lake Ontario. It was a Second World War Fairey Firefly and the pilot was killed. Until that moment, the program offered interviews, live music and other light fare, and then the veteran Mr. SMITH swung into action.
"He showed all his skills as a broadcaster, switching from covering a fair to covering a plane crash. We didn't know much, but he was able to cover it and change the tone without missing a beat," recalled Ms. McFAYDEN.
In 1978, Mr. SMITH decided to retire before someone at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation decided he needed a push. "He didn't want someone coming and telling him it was time to go," said his son, Kim. "He left at the top."
Bruce SMITH was not yet 60 when he left broadcasting. He never went back to it -- even part-time. Instead, he developed a number of sidelines during 28 years of retirement. He became part owner of a curling club, which he ran as well as competing there, and followed his interest in shipping by taking trips as a passenger on lakers that plied the Great Lakes.
He and his wife, Beth, travelled frequently until she became ill. For 10 years, he devoted himself to taking care of her.
Bruce Arnold SMITH was born on August 22, 1919. He died on December 26, 2006, in Hamilton, Ontario He was 87. Mr. SMITH suffered from a rare type of blood cancer and had been ill for only a few weeks. He is survived by his four children, Kim, Cam, Kirk and Ann Elise. His wife, Beth, died in 1999.
