DROINE, William " Bill"
Mr. William (Bill) DROINE, age 87, resident of Thunder Bay, passed away peacefully with his family by his side at Grandview Lodge January 23, 2008, after a brief illness. Bill was born October 2, 1920 in Port Arthur, attended Central School and graduated from P.A.T.S. (Hillcrest High School). He proudly served in the Royal Canadian Navy during World War 2 on the corvette HMCS Camrose. In 1946, he married the love of his life, Ollie KINASCHUK and they settled in Port Arthur to raise their family. Bill worked at Canadian Car and Foundry for 21 years and then for Vercival and Company, retiring in 1979. He was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion and the Elks. After the loss of his beloved wife Ollie in 1992, Bill lived independently in his own home until his move to Grandview Lodge in November 2007. Our Dad was happiest when he was with his family, whether it was walking in the bush looking for mushrooms, blueberry picking, fishing, Sunday picnics, or playing hockey on the backyard rink with his three children. In his later years, he kept a regular routine of exercising on his stationary bike, doing sit-ups and watching Star Trek and Bluejay and Leaf games on television. He was an avid reader and believed in the importance of a higher education. In 1993, his twin granddaughters Kim and Michelle were born. 'Grampa' was extremely proud of all their accomplishments and his face lit up whenever they visited him or he spoke of them. Our Dad loved playing crib, and when he could no longer see all those 15-2's, he played a modified version with his 'coach' son-in-law Bill where they 'beat the board' the last game they played on January 22. Dad was predeceased by his wife Ollie in 1992, his parents Feydor and Lena DRAGANIUK and older brother Steve. He will be deeply missed by his son Bob (Linda) Owen Sound, son Bill (Mary Jane FINLAYSON) Toronto, daughter Corinne (Bill) KREZONOSKI and granddaughters Kim and Michelle, Thunder Bay and numerous other nieces, nephews sisters-in law and one brother-in-law. Cremation has taken place and a private family service will be held. As an expression of sympathy, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, Heart and Stroke or Diabetes Association. Thank You We would like to thank the staff of Grandview Lodge (F wing) for their exceptional care and compassion during our Dad's stay.

Fierce and forthright judge made practicality and principle his mark
When it came to standing up for precept over ideological fashion, the Ontario Court of Appeal judge had no peer. He could not abide sham or mediocrity, and that attracted a legion of admirers
By Kirk MAKIN, Page S10
Toronto -- There couldn't have been more than a handful of appellate lawyers in Ontario who were unaware that Mr. Justice George FINLAYSON had a low tolerance level for unprepared or long-winded lawyers. Unfortunately, one of them was arguing a complicated commercial case several years ago before the Ontario Court of Appeal's crustiest member.
As the hapless counsel droned on through a hit-and-miss series of legal points, the courtroom began to feel like a village built on the edge of Mount Etna. Finally, Judge FINLAYSON could take no more: "What I'd like to find out is: What should I be doing with my mind while you are talking?" he exploded.
Recounting the scene, a former colleague - Mr. Justice Sydney ROBINS - said it was a classic FINLAYSON moment: "George had a low boiling point. He had little patience with incompetence and unprepared counsel."
Gruff, prickly, impatient - all are words that applied to George FINLAYSON. His testy nature, however, was the product of a man who could not abide sham or mediocrity. When it came to standing up for principle over the ideological fashions of the day, he had no peer - and it built him a legion of admirers during his 12 years on the bench.
Raised in Ottawa, Mr. FINLAYSON graduated from the University of Toronto's law school in 1951 and joined a Toronto powerhouse known as McCarthy and McCarthy. He soon joined the ranks of a handful of legendary litigators who dominated the city's legal scene - men whose names are still uttered with reverence: J.J. Robinette, Walter Williston, John Brooke, Charles Dubin and Douglas Laidlaw. His clients ranged from fraudsters and hockey players to the government of Quebec, which he helped to win a mammoth lawsuit against Newfoundland involving power from Churchill Falls.
"He was noted for his unvarnished advice and fearless advocacy," Mr. ROBINS said.
Appointed to the Court of Appeal in 1990, Judge FINLAYSON brought a keen awareness of the practical effects of court rulings on the practice of law, a remarkable work ethic, and a writing style that was clear and focused.
"A lot of judges might reach the same conclusions but would couch them in more circuitous terms," said Tom HEINTZMAN, a lawyer at Mr. FINLAYSON's former firm. "George had the courage of his convictions, and he was prepared to set them down in an unvarnished way. When there was something he disagreed with, he would stand there like Horatio on the bridge."
A slight and slender man, Mr. FINLAYSON also embraced new technology, had an enormous appetite for work, and appreciated law clerks who were not afraid to edit his writing.
Practicality and principle were the hallmark of his rulings. In one case, he overturned a decision that had found a car-parts company responsible for a highway accident caused by an employee who was secretly drinking on the job. "The notion that an employer&hellip has a duty to monitor its employees to determine if it is safe for them to drive home is novel in the extreme," he said.
He maintained a particularly wary eye for social injustice, excessive damage awards, and judges who imposed unfairly harsh sentences on individuals in the hope of deterring other, would-be criminals.
"My father was a very black-and-white person," said his son, Blair. "Something might not be good law, but it was the law - so don't whine about it. He made up his mind quickly, but he wasn't stubborn. If you gave him a good argument, he had no problem admitting that he had been wrong."
A champion of criminal rights, Judge FINLAYSON was sufficiently pragmatic to allow police to seize hairs from suspects for DNA testing. In a similar realistic vein, he reduced excessive damage awards and spoke out against legal-aid funding being given indiscriminately to the children of wealthy or middle-class parents.
Most notably, however, he helped launch a wave of skepticism about the role of soft science and expert witnesses: from marginal fields.
In a 1997 ruling, he declared that jurors were quite capable of reaching conclusions without the aid of a psychologist, and castigated his fellow judges for abdicating their responsibility to reach conclusions without being propped up by purported experts.
He was particularly irked by the evidence in historical sexual assaults, some of it drawn out by therapists who employed dream theories. "The criminal courts need a new gatekeeper," he railed in one such case. "Parliament and the judiciary have radically eroded the traditional protection available to the accused in sexual assault cases."
Frank ADDARIO, president of the Criminal Lawyers Association, said these sentiments showed Mr. FINLAYSON to be "a judge with strong attachment to the bedrock principles of the criminal law. He liked the adversary system and its closed set of rules, and he continually reminded lawyers about the basic rules of evidence, proof and cross-examination in criminal cases."
But these rulings annoyed prosecutors, whose job it is to deal with victims and assemble evidence. They were equally put off by Judge FINLAYSON's regular declarations that prosecutors must be less keen to secure convictions.
He was equally caustic about lawyers attaching themselves to causes. In 1980, as treasurer of the Law Society of Upper Canada, he urged new lawyers to represent nothing but their client's interest - and to turn no prospective client away.
"You are not obliged, and indeed, you must not, act as a mouthpiece for an individual or his cause," he said. He also scoffed at the idea that some lawyers specialize in "civil rights," calling it a pompous, pious notion that infers that other lawyers are unconcerned about freedom and liberty.
He was from the old school of mentoring, Mr. HEINTZMAN said. "He wasn't about to mollycoddle anyone. We might be chewed out, but those who stuck it out learned lessons we never forgot."
In his life outside the courtroom, Mr. FINLAYSON loved spending time at the family cottage near Peterborough, Ontario Clad in eccentric recreational outfits, he was widely known to be far from expert at the helm of his sizable motorboat. "Stories are legion of him crashing it into docks," Mr. HEINTZMAN said. Indeed, there were few takers whenever he offered rides, and several neighbours had implored Mr. FINLAYSON never to approach their dock.
Mr. FINLAYSON also had a passion for the Toronto Blue Jays, the Ottawa Rough Riders, his dogs, and the company of a select group of male Friends with whom he exchanged legal gossip and spirited debate.
He was a decided family man, albeit not an overly demonstrative one. "If you did a great job on something, my father's way of showing love and affection was to give you a firm handshake and a pat on the back," said Blair, who went on to take up electrical engineering and to run his own company.
A watershed point in Mr. FINLAYSON's career occurred in 1989, when an article in Canadian Lawyer magazine ranked him among the worst judges in the country on account of his temper, irascibility and a tendency to prejudge matters.
Based on a handful of anonymous critics, the ranking was far from scientific. Still, some Friends detected a change. The judge tried to curb his in-court sniping. A moderate drinker, he quit cold turkey.
Another important personal event occurred in 2004 when he published John J. Robinette, Peerless Mentor: An Appreciation, an unusual hybrid that was part memoir and part biography.
He believed fervently that the best decisions are written almost immediately, when legal arguments are fresh in a judge's mind and his reactions to them crackle with energy. He would invariably return to his chambers from the courtroom and set about writing his ruling, often polishing off the bulk of it in two or three hours.
His son said this technique had the added virtue of giving him a jump on everyone else: "He could get his slant in on it."
Mr. FINLAYSON, who retired in 2002, probably summed up his philosophy best in an interview several years ago: "My whole approach is to be a problem solver. I don't have an agenda. I don't favour the Charter or adopt a conservative approach. I don't favour the Crown or the defence. I just look at every case as something that has to be dealt with properly."
George Duncan FINLAYSON was born in Winnipeg on November 4, 1927. He died in Toronto of a heart attack on March 23, 2008, while out walking his dog. He was 80. He is survived by his wife, Joan, and by his children Margot, Blair and Sheelah. He also leaves his grandchildren Cameron, Ben, Riley, Josh, Fraser and Geordie.

Canoeist, 90, found dead
By Unnati GANDHI, Page A16
Search crews have recovered the body of an elderly man who paddled out onto cold waters to retrieve a dock that had drifted away.
Roy FINN, 90, had been installing the new dock at his family's cottage in Huntsville, Ontario, when he noticed it slowly floating away at about 2: 35 p.m. Thursday, police said.
Mr. FINN told his wife of 65 years that he was going to head out in his canoe to retrieve it, but "she didn't want him to do that," Ontario Provincial Police Constable Sally STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said. Despite her protest, Constable STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said, Mr. FINN went anyway, taking only a paddle and rope. He was not wearing a lifejacket, and his canoe had no safety equipment aboard. He did not return.
A quick helicopter search located Mr. FINN's body in the chilly water about two kilometres south of the couple's cottage on the Lake of Bays. His empty canoe was found about 100 metres from him.

FINN, John " Bud" Henry
Storyteller, gardener, dog-lover, physician, outdoorsman. Born September 10, 1924, in Montreal. Died March 3 in Kitchener, Ontario, of prostate cancer, aged 83.
By Heather FINN and Eric Ohio, Page L6
To his Friends and family, John was simply Bud. He grew up in the Beaches area of Toronto as the oldest child of an Irish immigrant mother and lake-boat captain father. Bud loved to tell the story about the time his father, having returned from a long trip, pulled him out of school one day to see the burlesque shows downtown.
Bud began his studies at the University of Toronto in 1943. He found his calling there as a physician and became the first university graduate in his family.
In 1948, he married his high-school sweetheart, Helen, a lady in the truest sense of the word. They moved to Wellesley, a farming community in Southwestern Ontario, where they raised four boys - David, Bruce, Brian and Stephen - and set up a practice that at one point served 7,000 patients.
Doc FINN was the quintessential country doctor. His range of services and the hours he kept knew no limits. On any given day, he might deliver a baby, remove an infected appendix, mix his own medications in his apothecary and test the town's water supply as the de facto director of public health.
Bud's nearly 50 years as a physician spanned an era when medical knowledge and the way it was practised evolved at a formidable rate. Despite these changes, he maintained the highest level of care for all his patients, trusting his instincts and keeping abreast of the latest research.
At one time Bud claimed to know all the police officers in the region by name. Once, he was pulled over for travelling a little too quickly on the way to deliver a baby in Kitchener. He looked at his watch and said, "Well… I guess the girls will have to do it without me." The police officer escorted Bud to the hospital, lights flashing.
Outside the clinic, Bud was an avid outdoorsman, spending his limited free time exploring the lakes and hills of Central Ontario with his trusty Nikon always at hand.
He happened upon a pristine piece of Crown land in the early 1950s while on a canoe trip with his brothers-in-law. Upon his return to Toronto the next week, Bud purchased the point for In subsequent summers, the building materials for the cottage and its contents were transported to the remote location by barge, an old army Jeep and Beaver aircraft. The cottage and its deep, calm waters were Bud's pride and joy and a welcome respite from his demanding career.
Bud lived the life of a person who knew that respect and love were to be earned and cherished. He will be missed by all those whom he touched and healed.
Heather FINN is Bud's granddaughter, and Eric OH is her husband.

He attended Strathmillan, Birchwood and Golden Gate schools and Silver Heights Collegiate. He graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) degree in 1975. He enjoyed a successful career in property development and management, including eleven years in Toronto where he rose to the position of vice-president of an international development company. In 1992, he and Hanna welcomed the opportunity to return home to Winnipeg, where he served as Vice President for Manitoba and Saskatchewan, then General Manager of St. Vital Centre until his retirement from 20 VIC Management Inc. in 2004.

In January 2008, Charlie and Hanna fulfilled their long-time dream and bought a retirement home on the ocean just outside Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where they had vacationed for many years. They enjoyed a wonderful winter there before his untimely passing. Charlie was very involved in the community. His associations included the Rotary Club of St. Vital, a board member of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and a member of the financial committee of the M.S. Society of Winnipeg.

FINSTAD o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-06-25 published
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation news anchor was 'meticulous, an announcer of the old school'
One of the last news readers hired by the corporation for voice alone and not for their reportorial skills, he broke the news to English Canada that Pierre Laporte had been murdered by the Front de Liberation du Québec
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
George FINSTAD was the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation announcer who broke the news to much of English Canada that Pierre Laporte had been murdered by the Front de Liberation du Québec.
On the night of October 17, 1970, the body of the Quebec Labour Minister was found in the trunk of a car near Saint-Hubert Airport on Montreal's South Shore. Mr. Laporte had been kidnapped from his home in nearby Saint-Lambert six days earlier.
Mr. FINSTAD had just started as the backup and weekend newsreader for The National News. It was the first political assassination in Canada in more than 100 years and although Mr. FINSTAD made the announcement in his calm, trained voice, the event had a profound affect on him.
"George was really shaken by the incident," said Lloyd Robertson, then the main newsreader at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, who was called in to work after news of the Laporte murder became known. "I remember him coming out of the studio and saying 'Wow, this is something that I never thought I'd see happen.' "
At first, Mr. FINSTAD went on without a script and read bulletins as they came in to the television station. He updated events as the night unfolded, introducing reports from the field.
"He was meticulous, an announcer of the old school. It made things easier that night since we had been working day and night for weeks on this story before the body was found," said Peter Daniel, a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reporter in Montreal who spent long hours on the air during the October Crisis.
By then, George FINSTAD had spent almost two decades in broadcasting. The son of Norwegian immigrants, he grew up in Edmonton. His father, Carl, was often away from home, working on oil derricks, as a cook in lumber camps and later on ships in the merchant marine. His mother, Anna, worked in a factory in Edmonton during the war.
Young George had a great singing voice and there was some talk of him attending a music conservatory but the family couldn't afford it. Instead, he picked up a couple of other skills: golf and pool.
"My father was a something of a pool shark," said daughter Laurie FINSTAD- KNIZHNIK. "He was shy and sweet-looking, so people thought they could hustle him, but he could clear a table in minutes."
After graduating from Strathcona High School, known to its students as "Scona," he went to work at CKUA, a 250-watt radio station run by the University of Alberta and the provincial government. He did everything there, from reading the news to putting out the garbage. For a man who later became known as a dignified newsreader, one of his first announcing jobs was on a children's program in which he played a fish.
The money wasn't great, so he took a year off to operate a dredge at Great Bear Lake in the Northwest Territories. He then returned to the typical career path of a young announcer, working in a number of Western Canadian radio stations from Lloydminster to Victoria before joining the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1964.
He first worked in Toronto as a summer replacement in 1965, and then moved full-time to the network headquarters in 1968. Along with reading The National News, he worked on a number of other programs. One of them was Lifestyles, a consumer-oriented show he co-hosted with newspaper reporter Joan Watson. It later morphed into a full-time network program called Marketplace. At the time, there was nothing of its type on television. Private stations couldn't run anything like it since they were in danger of alienating sponsors. Mr. FINSTAD was nominated for an award for his work.
"He was very focused, hard-working, driven in the sense that he wanted to ensure everything he did was right and proper on air and it always was," said anchor Peter Mansbridge, who was a reporter in Western Canada at the time. "I think back to watching George, I can never remember him making a mistake. He was always right on with everything, not only just the simple act of reading but ensuring he pronounced everything right. That can be a challenge in some newscasts."
Mr. FINSTAD's enunciation skills were in demand elsewhere, too. He provided voiceovers for many television productions, including the documentary Who Owns the Sea?, which he narrated with Gordon Pinsent. A specially edited version of this program was later shown at a series of environmental meetings held in Stockholm, Geneva and New York that led to the Law of the Sea Convention being reached at the United Nations.
By the mid-1970s, things have begun to change at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. The broadcaster wanted reporters who had worked in the field, not professional announcers, to read the news.
There was also a bizarre union jurisdiction, with the announcers being in one union and the reporters and news writers in another. In theory, the announcer of the newscast wasn't allowed to change so much as a comma in the news copy. It frustrated announcers such as Mr. Robertson and Mr. FINSTAD, who considered themselves journalists, not just newsreaders.
In 1976, Mr. Robertson left to go to CTV, where he still reads the nightly newscast. Colleagues say Mr. FINSTAD expected to be promoted to be the main newsreader, but the job went to reporter Peter Kent.
Mr. FINSTAD stayed until the following year. At the time, he was 42, and his daughter said his departure could have been the combined result of frustration and an urge to do something different. In any event, he went to Montreal, where he auditioned at CJAD radio for the job of morning news reader, the top job at the city's top English-language station.
"The program director, Ted Blackman, just loved the sound of George's voice. He would play the audition tape over and over and call people into his office to listen," recalls Stephen Phizicky, the news director at the station and another former Canadian Broadcasting Corporation employee. "The station wanted traditional great voices, and George had one of those voices."
Several years later, he and Mr. Phizicky both returned to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, where Mr. FINSTAD read the local news. He stayed on as a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation announcer in Montreal. In September, 1988, he was driving home from work, listening to radio reports that Ben Johnson had just been stripped of his medal at the Seoul Olympics, when his car was struck by a large truck.
He was taken to nearby Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, only to be revived by a visiting trauma specialist. His injuries were severe: Both lungs had collapsed and the rib cage was shattered.
"When he woke up four days later, he thought he had been injured in the Olympics," said daughter Kathy. "The accident had a real effect on his work. He couldn't finish a sentence without taking a breath."
In 1990, he retired from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation at 56. He and his wife, Betty, went to Vancouver for a while but moved back to Toronto after their first grandchild was born.
Mr. FINSTAD loved the spoken word and the written word. He was forever working at crossword puzzles, cryptic, acrostic and regular, and played word games with all his children.
"He drilled all five of us in homonyms and definitions so we knew the meaning of both enigma and conundrum," said Ms. FINSTAD- KNIZHNIK, the creator and writer of the television series, Durham County. "He was obsessed with language. There were vocabulary and grammar tests, Scrabble until midnight and more dictionaries than you could count. He had a true love of language and what could be done with it."
George FINSTAD was born in Edmonton on October 7, 1934. He died May 30, 2008, of a heart attack in hospital in Toronto. He was 73. He is survived by wife Betty, children Laurie, Rob, Mark, Kathy and Kim, a brother and four sisters.
