WARDEN served in Oxford politics for quarter century
By John TAPLEY, Sun Media, Thurs., January 17, 2008
Ingersoll -- Oxford County will bid farewell today to a longtime politician, businessperson and war veteran.
Former mayor Jack WARDEN died Sunday at Parkwood Hospital in London. He was 87.
"He was a very caring person," said Ted HUNT who served with WARDEN on Ingersoll town council during the late 1960s. "If he had an issue, he would stand firm with it. He was easy to work with, congenial and willing to listen."
WARDEN was a good businessperson who always had Ingersoll at heart and was interested in people, says HUNT, a former Ingersoll chief administrative officer.
WARDEN was a flight lieutenant with the Royal Air Force in the Second World War and a life member of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 119, helping organize Ingersoll's annual Battle of Britain Parade and Remembrance Day services.
For years, he operated WARDEN Appliances in downtown Ingersoll.
A former mayor of Ingersoll and a county councillor, he was involved in municipal politics for 25 years. The council chamber at the Town Centre is named in his honour.
Included in a long list of community involvement are terms on both public and separate school boards, Alexandra hospital board, Ingersoll Chamber of Commerce, the Business Improvement Area and the town's police services board.
Former mayor Michael HENNESSY, a councillor when WARDEN was mayor, says WARDEN always followed his beliefs.
"He was a good man,"
Predeceased by his wife, Bernadette, WARDEN is survived by six children, nine grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
A funeral mass will be held at Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in Ingersoll today at 11 a.m.

SWERDFAGER, J. Douglas
Lt. Col. Royal Canadian Air Force (Retired)
Doug passed away peacefully Sunday March 23, 2008 in his 90th year. Fondly remembered and sadly missed by nieces Jacqueline (John) DICKSON/DIXON and Mary (Eric) HENNIGAR, nephews John (Alice) STERLING, Norman (Joan) STERLING, John (Janet) ASHTON and Douglas (Brenda) ASHTON, many grand-nieces and nephews who thought of Doug as their favourite uncle, and longtime friend and companion John Morris who helped him greatly in his later years. Doug was predeceased by his parents Norman and Ada SCHWERDFAGER, twin sister Lois ASHTON, sister Doris STERLING and brother Leslie SWERDFAGER. Anyone who had the privilege of knowing Doug will miss his genuine interests in their lives, his amazing sense of humour and his entertaining repartee. He relished time spent at gatherings with family and Friends discussing politics and sharing childhood memories. Doug was a natural teacher. Following Normal School in Ottawa, he began his career in a one room schoolhouse near Douglas, Ontario and finished as a Director with the Ministry of Colleges and Universities. He was enormously proud of his service in the Royal Canadian Air Force, much of which was served in a teaching capacity overseas during World War 2. Cremation has taken place. At Doug's request there will be no funeral. Interment will take place later this year at the National Military Cemetery, Ottawa. Donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Trull East Toronto Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 1111 Danforth Avenue.

BASRUR was calm face during severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis
By Helen BRANSWELL, The Canadian Press, Tues., June 3, 2008
Toronto -- Doctor Sheela BASRUR, a public health figure whose skilful leadership and communications expertise helped guide Canada through Toronto's severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis in 2003, died yesterday after a 17-month battle with a rare form of cancer.
BASRUR, 51, had stepped down as Ontario's chief medical officer of health in December 2006 when she learned she was suffering from leiomyosarcoma, a diagnosis for which the prognosis was poor.
Many of her Friends, colleagues and admirers fought back tears as they paid tribute to a diminutive woman with a big brain, a big heart and a quick smile.
"It was obviously at one level expected and inevitable, given what she was dealing with. But it's too soon, too young and a huge loss, not just to public health but far much more in the country," Doctor David Butler-Jones, Canada's chief public health officer, said from Halifax.
Born in 1956, BASRUR was raised in a professional family.
Her father is a radiation oncologist at the Kitchener hospital where BASRUR died. Her mother is a professor at the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph.
Divorced, she had one child -- a daughter, Simone KOVES, who is now 17.
A private funeral will be held, according to family spokesperson Sujit CHOUDRY. A public memorial to mark BASRUR's life and professional contribution will follow.
But some of that recognition started to flow before her death. In April, at a ceremony BASRUR was well enough to attend, the provincial government announced it would name Ontario's new arms-length public health agency the Sheela Basrur Centre.
People for whom she worked and who worked for and with her described a woman able to quickly grasp the big picture, a leader who easily marshalled and motivated troops, and a person whose keen sense of humour was ever at the ready.
"She was one of those people who can take the information and understand the implications of it and be able to convey that to people in a way they understand," said Doctor Bonnie HENRY, a friend who also served as an associate medical officer of health in Toronto.

Beloved poet, prof, playwright 'an artistic giant'
James REANEY, 1926-2008
By Katherina DEHAAS and Patrick MALONEY, Sun Media, Thurs., June 12, James REANEY, a national literary icon who stayed close to his Southwestern Ontario roots during a celebrated, 50-year career as a playwright, poet and professor, has died.
The longtime Londoner died last night in London following a long illness. He was 81.
"It was a peaceful end to a great life," his son, Free Press journalist James REANEY, said. "We know that he will be remembered and his contributions to Canadian culture will be valued."
Born on a Stratford-area farm in 1926, REANEY was an acclaimed poet, playwright, author, opera librettist and University of Western Ontario English professor.
He won three Governor-General's Awards for poetry and drama, and a 1974 Chalmers Award for best Canadian play.
"He was so great," said Nancy POOLE, a former Museum London director who met REANEY at University of Western Ontario.
"He was a gentleman, an intellectual, an artistic giant in the Canadian scene."
REANEY won his first Governor-General's Award in 1949 at age 23 for a collection of poetry, The Red Heart.
In 1960, he began teaching at University of Western Ontario and started publishing Alphabet, a semi-annual periodical devoted "to the iconography of the imagination."
In 1966, he founded the Listener's Workshop and began working with child and adult actors in choral ensemble works. REANEY, whose play Colours in the Dark premiered in Stratford in 1967, received the Order of Canada in 1975.
His best known dramatic work may be a trilogy of plays about the 1880 massacre of the Donnelly family in Lucan.
He was 10 when his stepfather told him the stirring story, stoking in REANEY an interest that would lead him to write the three plays that not only dramatized the legend, but arguably also brought it into focus historically.
The trilogy is among a handful of Canadian works listed among the 1,000 most significant plays of all time by the Oxford Dictionary of Plays.
He was also an amateur painter and pianist whose works were exhibited in London and Toronto.
REANEY enjoyed such respect that even small details of his life inspired artisans, says Martha HENRY, former Grand Theatre artistic director.
HENRY, who acted in two REANEY plays, recalled a tour last summer of his boyhood home.
"It was amazing," she said. "We went up into the attic where he used to write. He's an icon. A complete original."
REANEY is survived by his wife, son and daughter, two granddaughters and two siblings.

In loving memory of a dear Husband, Father, Grandfather and Great-grandfather, John who passed away one year ago, June 13, 2007.

Sheela BASRUR, 51: Physician
At the height of the 2003 crisis that stunned Toronto and caused the rest of the world to stay away from Canada's largest city, she worked three weeks straight. At one point, she said it was like 'ripping a bandage off one wound to stop the bleeding on another'
By Gloria GALLOWAY, Page S8
Ottawa -- Toronto's hotels were half empty, people on the streets were wearing medical facemasks, the city's Chinatowns were ghost towns, and there was one reassuring voice pleading for calm.
Sheela BASRUR was Toronto's medical officer of health when severe acute respiratory syndrome arrived in her city, stealing in from Hong Kong and unleashing its deadly force on a population taken fully by surprise.
Suddenly, the diminutive doctor was thrust onto the national stage. The world's health community turned a concerned eye on Toronto. Reporters from across the country were calling to demand answers about the deadly and previously unknown threat.
Amid the chaos, she became a trusted general in the fight against the disease.
In the beginning, Doctor BASRUR and her team were working in a knowledge vacuum. "What kind of control measures, what kind of investigation might be needed? How many contacts might there be?" she once said describing the questions that arose in the early days of the crisis. "We had no idea that we might be facing hundreds of contacts even in the first weekend and 23,000 by the end of it."
With the first deaths, the apprehensions of the entire city - and, to some extent, the rest of Canada - came to rest on her five-foot frame. It was a weight she shouldered with remarkable competence.
Sheela BASRUR had always wanted to be a doctor.
She was born in Toronto to Vasnath BASRUR and his wife, Parvathi, who had arrived from India as graduate students during the 1950s. Vasnath was an oncologist; Parvathi was a veterinary geneticist who managed to obtain her degrees despite growing up in a poor family of 10 children.
When the BASRURs moved to Guelph, an hour's drive west of Toronto, they were conscious of being what seemed to be the only visible minority family in the community. When Parvathi BASRUR breezed by in her sari, people on the street would stop and stare.
The young Sheela penned poems and essays for sheer amusement. She was also a skilled flautist and told the Toronto Star, in one of the many profiles that paper wrote about her over the years, that her artistic nature led her parents to believe she would one day be a writer or a musician.
But the biological subject matter of the BASRURs' dinner banter led her in a different direction. After high school, she obtained a science degree at the University of Western Ontario in London and then headed to the University of Toronto to study medicine.
The newly graduated Doctor BASRUR returned to Guelph, where she practised as a family doctor for a year. But adventure called and, in 1985, she headed on a trip around the world.
It was in Nepal, and then in her parents' homeland of India, that she decided to pursue a career in public health. She told a reporter that visits to hospitals and clinics in those countries convinced her of the importance of community medicine. In one village, she encountered a woman with tuberculosis who could not afford the full treatment for the disease but whose husband needed her to be well enough to return to work on the family farm.
When she returned home, Doctor BASRUR sought her masters degree in health science as a specialist in community medicine. Her first forays into public health were adventures. She was, for instance, the chief investigator of a massive recall of shellfish along the Eastern seaboard.
Then she returned to Toronto and first became the medical officer of health in East York, the smallest of the city's suburbs. Starting in 1998, she was made head of a huge department that formed when all of the suburbs amalgamated.
In her private life, she enjoyed classic rock 'n roll, especially The Who. She tried her best to be a vegetarian but was not always successful. She did yoga every day before the sun came up. And she was a needlepoint fanatic. "I just find it very therapeutic," she once said.
An early marriage did not last. However, out of that she gained a daughter, Simone, who was the love of her life and her companion through her final difficult years.
Dr. BASRUR's early days at the Toronto Board of Health were spent supervising the merger of the various boards and handling ordinary local issues - children's food programs, smog alerts, and the first posting of the results of restaurant inspections.
And then, in March, 2003, came severe acute respiratory syndrome which was eventually determined to be a disease caused by the coronavirus. A genus of animal virus named for their crown-like appearance under a microscope, they are among the leading causes of the common cold. Until the onset of severe acute respiratory syndrome, they had been known to cause severe diseases only in animals.
However, by April 2003, several labs had uncovered evidence of a new coronavirus that had infected at least some patients with severe acute respiratory syndrome. By then it had struck more than 2,600 people and killed 103 worldwide.
Suddenly, people were dying in Toronto. It was a disaster that had to be contained.
Like many of those on the front line, Doctor BASRUR worked three weeks straight after the first cases were discovered. As severe acute respiratory syndrome spread through the city, she and her team charted its course, trying to build firewalls between the infected and those who were sitting vulnerable in its path.
At times, just when they thought they had stemmed its spread in one direction, the disease would pop up somewhere else through an unanticipated line of transmission. Mass groups of students and factory workers were quarantined. People were told they could not go to the funerals of loved ones. Health workers were dying along with their severe acute respiratory syndrome patients.
At one point, she described the fight against severe acute respiratory syndrome as "ripping a bandage off one wound to stop the bleeding on another."
Dr. BASRUR and others were also puzzled as to why 40 per cent of severe acute respiratory syndrome patients failed to demonstrate evidence of being infected with the new coronavirus. What's more, other people who did carry the virus did not have severe acute respiratory syndrome, or severe acute respiratory syndrome symptoms. Also troubling was the fact that the coronavirus carried only four to 10 genes and were infamous for mutating with every replication and for swapping genes with other viruses.
All things considered, it is not surprising that misjudgments did occur. It took nearly a week for the members of a 500-person religious community to be sent into quarantine after being exposed to severe acute respiratory syndrome because health officials did not realized the contacts had been made. Asked about the delay, Doctor BASRUR said: "It's a fair question… hindsight is absolutely my best friend."
There was the odd humorous moment, like the Abbott and Costello routine she played with Toronto Mayor Mel Lastman. As the elected head of Canada's largest city, he was experiencing his first encounters with such organizations as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centres for Disease Control near Washington.
Upset by a press conference about a travel advisory that had been imposed because of severe acute respiratory syndrome, he railed against the warnings that had been announced by "this Centres for Disease Control group, whoever they are."
"WHO," whispered Doctor BASRUR.
"Who?" he shouted.
"That's right, WHO," said the doctor trying to control her laughter.
But, as 44 people lost their fight to the disease, there were many frustrating and difficult weeks. And through it all, Doctor BASRUR - the face of calm and reason - became one of the acknowledged heroes.
A female co-worker remembers bumping into her one day during the crisis as she emerged from a washroom. The co-worker told Dr. BASRUR that she looked wonderful and the doctor responded by saying she felt tired.
"And I said, 'Sheela, you're great. The whole city loves you and is counting on you. And this morning on the radio I heard the host of the morning show say that he knew it was okay to go out because the little doctor with the glasses said it was.'"
Dr. BASRUR laughed and hugged the woman in delight and went off to try save more lives.
Several years later, the co-worker e-mailed Doctor BASRUR and asked if she remembered the incident. "And she said 'yes, but I believe he said the cute little famous doctor with the glasses."
Those who worked with her during that time say it was a huge privilege to be part of her team. Bonnie HENRY, who was Toronto's associate medical officer of health, said Doctor BASRUR's great strength was her ability to communicate.
Months after the crisis, the two doctors were walking through an airport together "and people would come up to her in the airport and say 'I feel like I know you,' said Doctor HENRY. " She was always very gracious. She was really touched by the fact that people responded to the way that she was able to communicate things."
Dr. BASRUR's tireless efforts during severe acute respiratory syndrome made her the first choice of the Ontario government when it went looking for a new Chief Medical Officer of Health in January, 2004. Her mandate was to revamp the way health programs were delivered in the province and to do whatever possible to prevent another severe acute respiratory syndrome. She took on such big jobs as instituting a rigorous anti-smoking policy and a provincewide healthy-eating program.
Then, in November, 2006, a pain in her lower back that she had been feeling for some time became excruciating. It was caused by a tumour on her spinal cord.
Concerned that she could become a paraplegic, her surgeons removed it immediately. But the prognosis was still not good. She had hemangiopericytoma, a rare vascular cancer that started in her uterus and spread throughout her body.
All at once, the doctor had become a patient. Even so, the disease did not incapacitate her. A week after stepping down from the job of Ontario's top doctor, she returned to the provincial parliament to see the introduction of legislation establishing a new public-health agency - an agency she helped create and one that has been named after her.
The months after the diagnosis were like a gift wrapped in barbed wire, she said. "It's like being given the most beautiful bouquet of roses you can imagine being placed in your arms and thinking 'whoa, they've got thorns on them.' "
Dr. BASRUR said she preferred to focus on the "rose petals," like the fact that, after a lifetime of hard work, she had been able to devote time to her daughter, now 17.
In April, she was awarded the Order of Ontario in her hospital bed by Lieutenant-Governor David ONLEY. The next day, she rallied and attended a fête organized in her honour by the Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario.
Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty told the crowd they must not been fooled by her size. "She's tough when she needs to be - a regular Mighty Mouse."
Ontario Health Minister George Smitherman said later that he could not agree more. During severe acute respiratory syndrome, "she was the one that lifted us on her shoulders, even though she wasn't that tall. For a little person, she proved to be awfully mighty."
In difficult times, he said, it's particularly important that clinicians communicate in a way that is accurate, concise and understandable. "Not everyone has that gift."
In the end, Friends say Doctor BASRUR was accepting of the fact that she would die at 51. "If I can help more people have a great life," she once said, "then I'll have a great life."
Sheela BASRUR was born in Toronto on October, 17, 1956. She died June 2, 2008, of hemangiopericytoma, a rare vascular cancer, at Grand River Regional Cancer Centre in Kitchener, Ontario She is survived by her daughter, Simone KOVES, and by her parents, Vasnath and Parvathi BASRUR.

HENRY, Michael Blair
(August 29, 1930-July 17, 2008)
Michael Blair HENRY passed away suddenly at home in Guelph, the morning of Thursday July 17, 2008. In his 78th year, Michael leaves Joy (WILLIS) his adoring, precious soul mate and wife of 52 years. He was a very loving and devoted father of Christopher, Peter and Blair (wife Judith). As a proud grandfather he encouraged Robin and Willis to be the best. Michael will be fondly remembered for his unwavering support of Friends and family. Predeceased by his brother Paul, Michael leaves family in Toronto and area, Markdale, Chilliwack British Columbia, and Saint_John's, Newfoundland.
Born in Toronto to parents Isabel and Ted HENRY, Michael and Paul attended private schools throughout Canada, as sons of an Air Force officer. Settling in Toronto, Michael met, pursued and married Joy WILLIS on March 10, 1956. Michael began a career in financial services as a trader on the floor of the Toronto Stock Exchange. Transferred to Guelph in 1963 to build an investment business, Mike and Joy and the three boys moved into the house they built, and still call home today. His activities included coaching championship novice hockey teams, summers in Muskoka and ski trips with the family, while being a role model for many.
In 1976 Michael left the investment business and accepted the position of General Manager of the Guelph Chamber of Commerce in order to promote the growth of industry and economic well-being of the community, to which he had become so devoted. In 21 years of meritorious service Michael received commendations from the City of Guelph, Ontario, and Canadian Chambers of Commerce and in 1992, he was conferred a Governor General's Medal for the 125th Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada in recognition for significant contribution to "compatriots, community and to Canada."
As a long time member of Kiwanis and a dedicated Rotarian, Michael directed his energies to the enrichment of his community, Friends and family. He was a regular volunteer with the Guelph General Hospital and Meals on Wheels, where he was often late because he took the time to visit with the people-in-need, who became Friends.
Michael and his comic wit will be missed by his many close Friends, who have all been a wonderful support network for Joy and himself.
On behalf of the family, thank you all for your kindness and your heartfelt support.

Innocent shooting victim 'worked hard'
By Michele HENRY and Betsy POWELL, Crime Reporters with files by Joanna SMITH, Donovan VINCENT and Tonda MacCHARLES.
Tomorrow would have been his last day on the job.
Hou Chang MAO, the city's second innocent victim of gun violence in a week, was days away from ending his tenure in the fruit and vegetable department of Fu Yao Supermarket when he was killed by a stray bullet Thursday night. MAO was stacking oranges on a display outside the Gerrard St. E. store when he was caught in the crossfire of a gun battle waged by two warring groups.
Described as honest, the kind of man who would pick only the nicest fruit for his customers, MAO 47, had worked at the small but busy market in the heart of Chinatown east for about two years -- ever since immigrating to Canada from Fuqing, a small coastal town in China.
He quit earlier this week, a family friend said yesterday. The father of two had agreed to stay until tomorrow due to his boss's pleadings.
MAO quit because he didn't like working outside in the cold, said the friend, who stopped by the family's home last night and did not want to be named. "He was a very good person. He worked hard and was kind to everyone. It's unbelievable "
Late yesterday evening, just feet from where MAO was struck, his younger brother met with local members of the Fuqing community to discuss funeral arrangements.
Hou Tan MAO talked privately with about 10 others, in an inner room at Fu Yao. He was appealing to people from his hometown on behalf of MAO's children, Zuo Xi, 22, and Yun Yam, 18, who both immigrated to Canada in the past two years and lived with their father in a house that sources said the father recently purchased. Friends said MAO's wife lives in China.
"They are really devastated," Jack LI, president of the Fuqing Association of Canada, said of the siblings while at Fu Yao last night for the discussion. "It's a really, really big surprise to us. It's a shock."
LI said he will post a plea in Chinese newspapers calling for help for the family of Toronto's third homicide victim of 2008.
A bouquet of flowers tied to a pole outside the store, and bullet holes in cars and on buildings on the north and south sides of Gerrard, are reminders of the shooting.
People ducked for cover as the bullets flew, but MAO was struck in the torso. He staggered toward the brightly lit entrance of the store where he worked and collapsed. He died later in Saint Michael's Hospital.
While no weapons have been recovered, police said they found two types of bullet casings at the scene of the shooting, which began amid the dinnertime rush of shoppers, around 6 p.m. Officers are searching for two male witnesses: seen leaving the scene shortly after the gun battle in a silver car with a shiny round grille.
Homicide Det. Pauline GRAY/GREY said police have more than 100 hours of surveillance tape to go through and appealed for witnesses: especially the two men, who are not considered suspects -- to come forward.
It's the second such murder in Toronto in less than a week. John O'KEEFE, 42, a father of one, was shot last weekend as he walked past the Brass Rail tavern on Yonge Street, just south of Bloor St. Two men have been charged with first-degree murder.
Even though last month Brian RAYBOULD, head of Toronto's homicide squad, suggested the chances of being a homicide victim are minute if you're not engaged in a criminal lifestyle, politicians yesterday called for a handgun ban.
Mayor David Miller toured the area yesterday morning and said he plans to ask Michael Wilson, Canada's ambassador to the U.S., for his assistance and will meet Monday with Ontario's new Attorney General, Chris Bentley.
"One of the items on the agenda will be handguns and how we can work together -- the province and the city of Toronto -- to deal with this issue," Miller said yesterday. Miller and Premier Dalton McGuinty want Ottawa to ban handguns.
The federal Tories say that won't address the "real problem."
"Handguns are already extremely tightly controlled," Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day said in a written statement.
Irrespective of calls for a ban, Insp. Peter YUEN of 55 Division, which includes the Gerrard strip, said the area is peaceful, not "crime-ridden," and still a safe place to shop, live and work. "This is a very rare occurrence," he said.

REYNOLDS, Paul
Paul REYNOLDS (b. 1926) died peacefully, 4 March 2008. In 1945, he took over a small family business and over the next 50 years built this into a highly successful mechanical contracting company (Reynolds Bros. Mechanical, later Doughty and Darling). Paul married his childhood sweetheart, Shirley WILKINS; they raised four children and shared wonderful times at Craigleith Ski Club and the cottage at Dudley Bay, Bala. Pleasure in retirement was cut short by Shirley's sudden death in 1994. Paul's subsequent marriage to Flora HENRY greatly enlivened his later years with shared travel and skiing adventures. Paul was a brother to Bill (d. 2007), Bud, and Patricia. His children, Carolynne BERRY (Reginald,) Lynda MONTIS (Phil,) John and Steven, will miss him profoundly. He lived to see six grandchildren (Andrea (Rob BECK,) Christine, Jenny and Laura MONTIS, Anthea and Aidan BERRY) and two great-grandchildren (Hardin and Wesley BECK.)
