When it came to achieving free trade, he was the right man for the job
As Canada's tough and pugnacious chief negotiator, he was famous for allegedly flicking cigar ash on the cherished, heirloom desk of U.S. Treasury Secretary John Connolly
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S12
Doing a trade deal with the Americans in the 1980s was like trying to sign a nuclear arms pact with the Soviets during the Cold War, according to former prime minister Brian Mulroney. Getting them to the table was hard, keeping them there was worse, but inking a treaty before the deadline expired was the real trick. "You have to be very tough," Mr. Mulroney said this week.
That's why, when he got the word from U.S. President Ronald Reagan that approval to negotiate a comprehensive free-trade agreement with Canada had squeaked through the Senate Finance Committee in the fall of 1985, he knew he needed Simon REISMAN to make the case and hold the line. Mr. REISMAN, who had flirted with communism while growing up in the Jewish ghetto of Montreal during the Depression, was a fervent free-trade continentalist, who had gone eyeball to eyeball with the Americans for 40 years and was famous for allegedly having flicked his cigar ash on U.S. Treasury Secretary John Connolly's heirloom desk, a sacred piece of furniture that had once belonged to founding father Alexander Hamilton.
"He was the only person with the background, the knowledge, the skill and the toughness to do this job," Mr. Mulroney said, pointing out that Mr. REISMAN had been part of the negotiations for the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trades in 1947, and Canada's chief negotiator for the Auto Pact in 1965, and a long-time senior mandarin in the federal civil service. Even so, Mr. Mulroney believed that the only way that Mr. REISMAN could succeed was if "the Americans knew he had 100-per-cent support from the prime minister on down."
Besides predictable problems with the Americans, Mr. REISMAN had difficulties on this side of the border, including an ongoing conflict with Senator Pat Carney, then the minister of international trade. She took - and expressed - great umbrage that Mr. REISMAN was not keeping her in the loop. "He wasn't a team player. He was abrasive and difficult to work with because he didn't like political direction or involvement," she said in an interview. "Even though I was the minister responsible for the negotiations he would insist he wasn't reporting to me. He was exasperating," she said, while acknowledging that he "did know the file."
A former deputy minister of finance who had taken early retirement in 1975, at least partly because he himself was exasperated with the machinations of his political masters, Mr. REISMAN was not going to kowtow to Ms. Carney, especially since he had the ear of the prime minister. After hearing Mr. REISMAN's complaints that "I'm having serious problems with the minister; she [Ms. Carney] has never negotiated an international deal," Mr. Mulroney made his move. "I installed myself as chairman of that executive cabinet committee with Simon and his team reporting directly to me."
Fuelled by his own sharp tongue and blustery manner, Mr. REISMAN also found a willing adversary in the media, especially the anti-free trade Toronto Star.
"I used to chuckle," Mr. Mulroney said, remembering uproars in the House of Commons when opposition members "would be yelling at me that he had told somebody from the Toronto Star to 'go fly a kite" or that the newspaper 'was a rag,' and they would be after me to reprimand Simon. And I was chuckling away because I was in agreement with what he said."
Sol Simon REISMAN was born in Montreal the year after end of the First World War. The second of four children of Kolman, a factory worker in the rag trade, and Manya REISMAN, he went to Baron Byng High School. A very smart boy, he made it into McGill University, despite the Jewish quota, and graduated with an honours degree in economics and political science in 1941 and a master's degree (summa cum laude) the following year, all the while holding down a variety of menial jobs.
As a young man from an immigrant family during the Depression and the rise of fascism in Europe, he joined the Young Communist League, according to Stephen Clarkson and Christina McCall in The Heroic Delusion, Vol. 2 of Trudeau and Our Times. They quote a recruit to the Young Communist League who said that she took a compulsory course on The History of the Communist Party, allegedly written by Joseph Stalin, from Mr. REISMAN in 1937 and another source who claimed that he was still attending party meetings in Ottawa after the war.
Mr. REISMAN's widow said this week that her husband never joined the Communist Party, but that "he was, as a young person, left, but he couldn't have become more right wing." Many intellectuals espouse communist ideologies in their youth, but what is significant about Mr. REISMAN's early political credo, according to Prof. Clarkson, is that it "helped explain his later fanatical belief in free trade - another all-encompassing belief system."
While a student at McGill, Mr. REISMAN joined the cadet corps. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Artillery in 1942, right after graduation and went overseas that November, a month after marrying Constance (Connie) CARIN. They had met through Friends.
"I disliked him immediately," she said. "I didn't like his forthright abrupt manner and I thought this was not the man for me, but it turned out I was wrong." She was busy the first several times he asked her out but, undaunted by these rebuffs, he told her to name a date when she would be free. She did, and so she learned about the man beneath the brusque self-confident exterior. "He always said what he thought, and he was not suited for diplomacy. He would have been a terrible failure in external affairs, but he was good where he was."
After landing in England in 1942, he served as a troop commander with the 11th, 15th, and 17th Field Artillery in the Italian campaign and finished out the war in the liberation of Holland. While waiting to be repatriated, he studied for several months at the London School of Economics. After four years overseas, he returned home in 1946 and went to Ottawa. There, he accepted the first job he was offered, in the Department of Labour, and moved later that year to the Department of Finance to work under Mitchell Sharp, in the economic policy division.
Within a few months he was working closely with John Deutsch, director of the international economic relations division, and writing speeches for Finance Minister Douglas Abbott. Mr. Deutsch wanted to take him to Geneva as secretary to a 12-man delegation working on preparations for an international trade conference scheduled for Havana, Cuba in 1947. "Either I go [with you] or we dissolve the marriage," Mrs. REISMAN told her husband, having no desire for another long-distance separation. He acquiesced "and we went on from there, for 65 years."
After a dozen years of marriage, the REISMANs had their first child, John Joseph, in 1954, followed two years later by daughter Anna Lisa. A second daughter, Harriet Frances, was born in 1959.
While Mr. REISMAN was in Havana, where delegates from nearly 60 countries met to establish what would become the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trades, he noticed that Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King was especially interested in Article 24, a provision that would permit groups of nations to establish free-trade areas. Canada was facing a foreign-exchange crisis that winter, and Mr. King wanted to secure a secret free-trade deal with the U.S. as a potential solution. As it turned out, the crisis passed, Mr. King lost interest in a free-trade deal and coincidentally the U.S. Congress refused to ratify the Havana Charter. Canada, and Mr. REISMAN, would wait another 40 years to complete a continental free-trade deal.
In 1954, Mr. REISMAN was appointed director of the international economics division in the Department of Finance and was seconded the following year to serve as assistant research director on the Royal Commission on Canada's Economic Prospects under Walter Gordon, where he reportedly had no hesitation in challenging his boss's protectionist views. When Mr. Gordon was named Finance Minister in Liberal Prime Minister Lester Pearson's cabinet in 1963, Mr. REISMAN, by then an assistant deputy minister, was promoted out of Finance and into the newly created Department of Industry. As deputy minister, a post he held with great distinction from 1964 to 1968, he led the negotiations that resulted in the Automotive Products Trade Agreement being signed by Prime Minister Pearson and U.S. President Lyndon Johnson in January, 1965.
The Auto Pact removed tariffs on cars, truck, buses and automotive parts between the two countries, which greatly encouraged trade, bolstered the bottom line of the big American car manufacturers, greatly increased assembly-line jobs in Canada and lowered the cost of purchasing automobiles. By 1968, the number of cars that were manufactured in Canada and sold in the U.S. had risen from seven to 60 per cent, while 40 per cent of cars bought in Canada were made in the U.S. There were downsides: Canada didn't develop an indigenous car industry and it was restricted from negotiating similar trade pacts with other countries, such as Japan. The Auto Pact was abolished after the World Trade Organization declared it illegal in 2001, but by then the Free-Trade Agreement, negotiated by Mr. REISMAN, and the subsequent North American free-trade agreement, which added Mexico to the trading mix, had made it largely irrelevant.
Mr. REISMAN was secretary of the Treasury Board from 1968 to 1970 and deputy minister of Finance from 1970 to 1975, when he chose to take early retirement from the federal civil service at age 55. The timing was good, as the federal government had recently decided to index civil-service pensions to the consumer price index. But that wasn't the only reason Mr. REISMAN was leaving. In an interview with The Globe and Mail in December, 1974, he complained about a diminishing scope for "people of energy and a certain independence of mind" in the public service and said he longed for "another career in which there would be a chance to fly on my own wings."
He and another former deputy minister, James Grandy (obituary April 5, 2006), formed a consulting firm, Reisman and Grandy, and quickly signed up a roster of clients that included Bombardier, Power Corp., and Lockheed. A ruckus erupted in the House of Commons over the firm's dealings with Lockheed, which was in the process of negotiating a huge contract to supply airplanes to the federal government. As former public servants, it was alleged that Mr. REISMAN and Mr. Grandy were violating conflict-of-interest guidelines. We aren't lobbyists, Mr. REISMAN insisted, explaining that there was a difference between peddling influence and peddling knowledge. Or, as he said to The Globe: "Some girls dance and some girls are whores… we just dance."
As a consultant, Mr. REISMAN had a number of high-level assignments, including Royal Commissioner to investigate the auto industry in 1978 and chief negotiator for aboriginal land claims in the Western Arctic in 1983. Mrs. REISMAN says the treaty with the Inuvialuit was a highlight for her husband because it was one of the first pieces of legislation affecting aboriginals under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
But the biggest deal of his life materialized when Mr. Mulroney appointed him ambassador (trade negotiations) and chief negotiator for Canada of the Canada-U.S. free-trade agreement in November, 1985. "I felt he was an absolute natural for us," Mr. Mulroney said.
"I called him and said that we were going to get into this comprehensive negotiation and could he draft me a memo detailing the kind of person we would need and the challenges that person would encounter. Then Simon sent me, I think, a 35-page memorandum. As Derek Burney [his chief of staff] said, it was the longest job application he had ever seen. Simon knew I was thinking of him, but he also knew that I wanted to get the benefit of his ideas of how this should be conducted."
The two men knew each other personally from salmon fishing trips in Quebec with the likes of Paul Desmarais and John Rae of Power Corporation. "He had a great sense of humour, he was a completely honest man, he shared his views on everything… he wasn't at all devious, but he was a tough guy," said Mr. Mulroney, adding that Mr. REISMAN was "the indispensable player" in the free-trade talks. "Simon was the star. He was the one who took the free-trade concept from infancy to maturity and made it whole."
The negotiations dragged on for two years with two main stumbling blocks. The Americans were not taking the talks as seriously as the Canadians wanted until Mr. REISMAN stomped away from the negotiating table in September, 1987, in a highly publicized snit (orchestrated with Mr. Mulroney in Ottawa, Allan Gotlieb, the Canadian ambassador to Washington, and other key players). Only hours before the deadline was to lapse for signing the treaty, the Americans balked at the dispute-resolution clause, a key consideration for the Mulroney government. Once again, Mr. Mulroney says he intervened to back up his trade negotiator. He phoned James Baker [U.S. Secretary of the Treasury] and threatened to call President Reagan that night and demand to know why "you can do a deal on nuclear arms reduction with your worst enemies and you can't do a free-trade deal with your best Friends." Mr. Mulroney recalled that "Baker nearly jumped out of his skin, because he knew that Reagan would have raised holy hell on that issue immediately. That's why they came around."
Although Mr. REISMAN had slowed his pace somewhat in the last decade, he was still salmon fishing in white water in July and present at a dinner in Montreal to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the free-trade agreement in October. But the following month he fell at the Rideau Club in Ottawa and then, in January, he collapsed at his condominium in Fort Lauderdale and had to be airlifted home. He was admitted to the Heart Institute in Ottawa, where he had a pacemaker installed.
A week ago today, he was reading The Wall Street Journal and speaking on the phone with his wife before falling to sleep. Very early the next morning he lost consciousness and medical staff were unable to revive him.
"He was a larger-than-life personality," said Mrs. REISMAN, earlier this week. "The house is very quiet without him."
Sol Simon REISMAN was born in Montreal on June 19, 1919. He died in his sleep of cardiac arrest at the Heart Institute of Ottawa on Sunday, March 9, 2008. He was 88. Survived by his wife Connie, three children John Joseph (Joe), Anna Lisa and Harriet Frances. He also leaves two younger sisters, Gertrude SHAPIRO and Helen LUTTERMAN, and 10 grandchildren. He was predeceased by his older brother, Mark.

CRAIK, Kathleen Julia " Judy"
We are saddened to announce the passing of Judy CRAIK who died in the care of her family at home. Judy's large family came together from near and far bringing great comfort and the opportunity to share many of the family's memories together. Judy is survived by her husband of 55 years; Bruce, children: Ian (Judith), Peter (Lori), Ginny (Stephen), Sandy (Jane), Tim (Perky), Heather (Peter) and her grandchildren Jennifer, Edward, Brandon, Ben, Charlie, Jason, Alex, Adam, Ellie, George, Maddie and Graeme. Predeceased by her mother Kathleen DROPE, and siblings John and Jane, she now joins them with 'the best seat in the house'. Judy lived each day to its absolute fullest. It is fair to say that she accomplished more in a day than most contemplate in a week's time. Born in Toronto April 25th, 1929, one would be hard pressed to find someone who more fully lived the motto 'to whom much has been given, much is expected'. Proud of her Gooderham family heritage, which she has done much to preserve, Judy forged a legacy of her own, touching so many people through family, business and community service in Toronto, Dundas, Huntsville, Aurora and King Township. At the age of 11, she began her life long work on behalf of the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire joining the Constance Waugh Chapter. She was Provincial President from 1969 to 1972 and National President from 1977-1978. During this time, the family transplanted to the shores of Fairy Lake where they revitalized Grandview Inn and Cabins and established Grandview Farm, a country inn that brought the joys of vacationing to hundreds of families over the years and providing vigour to the community of Huntsville. In 1986, Judy and Bruce 'retired' to King, where Judy started Mr. McGregor's Tea Room in Kleinburg. Also in Aurora, she gave her time and energy to the Welcome Table at Trinity Anglican Church. Through Judy's love of community, she became an active member of the first Canadian Chapter of the Compass Rose Society of the Anglican Communion. Loving 'all things bright and beautiful', Judy also enjoyed the time spent and people she met through the Garden Club of Toronto and Canada Blooms. All of this was accomplished with a uniquely strong character which imposed the highest standards on herself and those around her. Judy was an energetic and dynamic person who cared deeply for people exhibiting a great passion for helping to improve the lives of others, and the less fortunate. She will be remembered and missed by so many. Toujours en avant! Special and most sincere thanks from the family go out to the following: Ruth, Dolly, Sharon, Helma and Marjorie from TLC; Maryanne and Elaine from Bayshore; Doctor SHAPIRO of Southlake and to all of the other Friends and professionals that helped us along the way. Services will be held 2 p.m., Friday, July 11, 2008 at All Saint's Anglican Church, 12935 Keele Street (King Road and Keele Street), King City. In lieu of flowers, gifts of remembrance may be made to South Lake Cancer Centre (Newmarket), Mark Preece Family (Hamilton) House and the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire Children's Centre at the North York General Hospital.
