At age six, Tibbie emigrated from Scotland with her family, taking up residence in New Westminster, where she lived for most of her life. She will be remembered for her gracious manner, her inquiring mind, and her lively interest in the lives of her family, Friends, and former students. Tibbie began her long teaching career at age 19, in a 1 room schoolhouse on Gabriola Island, moving to Courtney and returning during the war years to teach in New Westminster, where she remained until she retired in 1973. Her determination and love of learning, particularly history, led her to gradually complete both Bachelors and Masters degrees at University of British Columbia. In her active retirement years she continually sought out ways to pursue her intellectual, social and spiritual interests (University Women's Club; Philanthropic Educational Opportunity Chapter "P"Sisterhood; St. Aiden's Presbyterian church), and spent many enjoyable months each year at the family summer home at Gower Point on the Sunshine Coast, where she made lifelong Friends among the summer resident families there. The family wishes to thank the staff of Kiwanis Care for the kindness and love they showed towards Tibbie, and for the excellent all-round environment of both peaceful care and stimulating activity which made her last years so enjoyable for her. A family Memorial Service will be held for Tibbie at Kiwanis Care Centre.

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.
