WINSLET, Dudley Rowland Molineux
(August 16, 1926-June 13, 2008)
Dudley WINSLET passed away peacefully on Friday, June 13, 2008 at the Newport Harbour Care Center in Calgary. Dudley was 81 years of age and in those years raised a family, made a huge number of Friends, contributed to society in many ways and travelled widely. Dudley was born in Rhaniket, India in 1926 during the time his father, William WINSLET was serving in the British Army. After William's stint in India, the family moved back to England where Dudley was raised. Dudley finished his schooling in Hornchurch, Essex and as a teenager met Jean whom he dated and later married. In 1944, Dudley, anxious to join the war effort and serve his country joined the Royal Air Force. It was his training with the air force that took him to Canada for the first time. He trained as a navigator in Manitoba and British Columbia and was then assigned in Burma in the final days of World War 2. After two years there, he returned to England where he served in the Royal Air Force Transport Command. In 1948, Dudley left the Royal Air Force and attended Westminster College in London to train as a school teacher. He had many stories of handling class rooms full of unruly school boys. In 1951, he married Jean and after deciding that teaching was not for him as a lifelong profession, he returned to university in London and earned a degree in geology from Birkbeck College. Throughout his college years he was active in track and field as well as rugby. In 1956, Dudley, Jean and their newly born son, Mark, immigrated to Canada, where he began a career with Texaco that would span 35 years. Dudley spent the early years sitting on wells in Northern Canada while Jean tended the home in Calgary and Edmonton. A second child, Laura, was born in 1961. Subsequent assignments with Texaco took Dudley and family to Ontario, New York, London, and eventually back to Calgary. Dudley maintained his interest in the air force throughout his life and he continued to contribute in this regard through the Royal Canadian Air Force Reserve, the air cadets and most recently the Calgary Aircrew Association. Dudley loved the oil business, embraced life in Canada and loved to travel. Dudley had many many Friends spread throughout the world. Laura and Mark always teased that their parents had a more active social life then they did and even this was well into Dudley and Jean's retirement years. Dudley had a love of music and literature, science and history, as well as many sports. In his later years he developed a passion for golf. He could chat to anyone on any subject. He liked to talk and was an expert at making speeches on any occasion. Dudley lost his beloved Jean in 2005 to cancer and soon became ill himself with lung disease but he continued to partake in his interests and spend time with family and Friends. He never lost his keen interest in other people's lives. He was a voracious reader to the end. He always maintained his sense of humour and complained little unless pasta was served by some unknowing cook. He also did like to complain on occasion about certain politicians. Dudley is survived by his son, Mark of Houston, his daughter, Laura KROWCHUK and son-in-law Paul and two grand-daughters, Melissa and Zoe, all of Calgary. He is also survived by cousin Eileen MOLINEUX of Guernsey, niece, Jane NASH and brother-in-law, David NASH as well as great nieces and nephew Cecily, Loie, Jerome, all of England, and by so many Friends, all of whom will miss Dudley immensely. He was the best of husbands, fathers and Friends. We are glad that Dudley and Jean are now reunited. Thank you from the family to Doctor Van Olm, his physician who became a friend at the end, the kind and caring staff at Newport Harbour, especially the lovely Angie and the excellent doctors and nurses in Emergency and on Unit 54 at the Peter Lougheed Hospital. Dad was very appreciative of the care he received towards the end. If Friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Canadian Lung Association at P.O.

WINSOR, Harry C.
It is with sadness that we announce the death of Harry C. WINSOR on February 17 2008, at age 90. Harry is survived by his wife of 55 years, Sylvia; his three children Rod (Julie THORBURN,) Terry (Megan CLIFFORD) and Barbara (Reno PICCINI;) and his seven grandchildren Stephen, Robyn, Christopher, David, Sarah, Emily and Alexander.
Harry was born in Musgrave Harbour, Newfoundland, son of the Rev. John and Elizabeth WINSOR. In 1944 he was appointed secretary to the fishery products committee of the Combined Food Board (established by the Allied powers to allocate food supplies during World War 2). After the War he remained in Washington, with the International Emergency Food Council and the fisheries division of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. He moved to Rome when the permanent Food and Agriculture Organization headquarters was established there in 1951. It was there that he met and married Sylvia. In 1953 he returned to Newfoundland as a member of the newly-established Newfoundland Fisheries Development Authority and served as a member of the South Coast Commission. In 1964 he rejoined Food and Agriculture Organization in the Caribbean. He returned to Rome in 1968 as Food and Agriculture Organization Director of Operations for Fisheries. He was regarded by Friends and colleagues around the world as thoughtful, considerate and loyal. He was a principled man of great integrity and generosity, a gentleman to the end who always put others before himself.pHe cared deeply about his family and was an inspiration and guide to all of them. In his later years, his grandchildren were the focal point of his life. They shared wonderful times with him, particularly during the summers in Haliburton.
The family would like to thank the staff at Briton House for their care. Funeral services will be held at the Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Ave. W. on Wednesday February 20 at 1: 00 p.m. with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer's Society.

Former cabinet minister left the world a little greener
By Hugh WINSOR, Page A8
A squad of volunteers will fan out around Ottawa today delivering oak saplings to Friends and admirers of Carletto (Charles) CACCIA, one of the most compelling and persistent politicians to have landed on Parliament Hill in many decades.
Indeed, former prime minister Jean Chrétien told an eclectic group of politicians, former politicians, environmental advocates, and others who gathered on the weekend to pay tribute to Mr. CACCIA, who died just over a week ago, that Mr. CACCIA had more influence on his government than most of his cabinet ministers.
The sapling delivery is symbolic, and like the man it commemorates, extremely practical. Mr. CACCIA knew that oaks take 100 years to reach maturity, Mr. Chrétien said, "so Charles was always planning into the future."
On the practical side, Mr. CACCIA's annual order of hundreds of oak saplings had already arrived when he was felled by a stroke while working on his silviculture project in the Gatineau Hills. What better way to deal with the cache than to have the mini-legacy planted around the country by Friends and colleagues?
The news stories and obituaries after his death captured the broad strokes of the CACCIA career.
He was born in Milan, immigrated to Canada after the Second World War, began his political career as a Toronto alderman and was elected as the first Italian-born member of Parliament in Parliament in Pierre Trudeau's 1968 sweep.
He was appointed to the Trudeau cabinet, eventually became dean of the Commons as the longest-serving member of Parliament, including an extended and fruitful stint as chairman of the Commons environment and sustainable development committee.
But obituaries didn't fully reflect his profound impact as a catalyst for the broader environmental movement, in Canada and internationally. Nor did they capture the essence of his personality or explain how he engendered fierce loyalty from people who worked with and for him (even though many would admit his energy and persistence could also try their patience). He was the only cabinet minister in Ottawa to refuse a government car and chauffeur, for instance, preferring to walk to work.
He was one of the earliest advocates for sustainable development, and a prophet about the "ecological footprint" of economic development, concepts that are now in the mainstream. Internationally, he was one of the early negotiators of the United Nations Climate Convention and Kyoto Protocol, a member of the Canadian Association for the Club of Rome, and an advocate for the World Commission on Environment and Development that became known as the Bruntland commission.
Jim MacNeill, a friend and another environmental pioneer, read a letter of condolence to the CACCIA family from Green Cross International, a Geneva based non-governmental organization concerned about nuclear waste and other toxic contaminants. It was a personal message from Green Cross president Mikhail Gorbachev and indicates how wide the CACCIA net was cast.
The memorial gathering was a cross-section of an earlier era, a time when there was more respect between political opponents, and for civil society represented by non-governmental organizations and advocacy groups. Not present at the gathering, for instance, was any representative of former Liberal leader Paul Martin's team, which in 2004 had blocked Mr. CACCIA's renomination in Davenport, a riding he had represented in Parliament for 36 years, to make way for one of their own.
Mr. Chrétien admitted privately that he had always felt badly he didn't put Mr. CACCIA into his cabinet. His explanation: When first elected prime minister in 1993, he had been ridiculed as "yesterday's man," so he had to go with younger ministers.
But Mr. Cacccia never held it against him, they remained Friends and he always valued Mr. CACCIA's advice, he added. An example of the CACCIA influence Mr. Chrétien talked about at the memorial service, was how as chairman of the environment committee, Mr. CACCIA stick-handled amendments to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act into law over the resistance of his own party's cabinet.
When he had to vacate his Parliament Hill offices in 2004, the Sierra Club offered him a place to put his many boxes of papers and documents.
As Elizabeth May, then president of the Sierra Club and now the Green Party Leader, told the story, "Charles came with his boxes."
One day when the organization was hosting an international delegation, Mr. CACCIA was helping Sierra staff stuff envelopes with promotional material. One of the visitors noted that it said a lot about how egalitarian a country Canada is, when a former minister of the Crown would be stuffing envelopes.
"I don't know what it says about Canada," she added, "but it says an awful lot about Charles."

Motorists' flash of anger ignites a fatal confrontation
By Sarah BOESVELD, Page A1
It was all over in a minute.
In a crash that police say was fuelled by a split-second fit of road rage, a man was killed yesterday when he was ejected from his black sport utility vehicle after a dramatic showdown with another driver in the eastbound lanes of a busy Ontario highway.
The early-morning crash caused five hours of traffic headaches for thousands of commuters heading eastbound on Highway 401 outside the town of Milton, just west of Toronto, and shined a spotlight on the dangers of driving while raging.
By late yesterday, police had arrested a man and charged him with criminal negligence causing death, dangerous driving and failure to remain and assist at the scene of a collision.
Reached last night, the mother of the arrested man said she knew police were looking for her son when she heard about the crash through the news media.
"Right away, I knew who it was. The time, the place, the colour of the car and the make of the car," she said. Her other son was also in the car. Both men were heading to work in Mississauga at the time of the crash.
"It's like a nightmare," their mother said. "I can't believe it, I can't believe it."
From eyewitness reports, police gave a detailed account of events leading up to the crash.
A 55-year-old man was heading to work from his Milton home. He was driving north on James Snow Parkway when, at 5: 16 a.m., a maroon Pontiac Grand Prix pulled up beside him.
While police don't know what precipitated it, they allege the two drivers began a duel of sorts, jockeying to be the first on the Highway 401 ramp ahead. They accelerated "at a high rate of speed" toward the on-ramp, said Staff Sergeant Dennis MAHONEY- BRUER of the Ontario Provincial Police Port Credit division.
The man driving the sport utility vehicle managed to surge ahead and merge into the centre lane, but the Pontiac driver wasn't conceding defeat: He accelerated and cut in front of the sport utility vehicle, then slammed on the brakes - a classic road-rage manoeuvre, police say.
To avoid rear-ending the Pontiac, the sport utility vehicle driver swerved to the left and lost control, smashing into the cement median and rolling at least three times, police said. The sport utility vehicle bounced about 300 metres until it landed upright. The driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was thrown from the vehicle; he landed about four metres away, police said.
The time was 5: 17 a.m.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene. Police have not released his name at the request of the family. [He was later identified as Tony GRECO.]
Although police do not often write "road rage" into their collision reports, Kenford Nedd, a stress specialist based at the Western Medical Centre in Vancouver, said most crashes can be directly linked to stress. He also sees an increasing number of patients admitting to their road rage.
When a driver's blood boils after being cut off on the road, a muscle stimulation prompts the hypothalamus to secrete cortisol, a hormone offering a natural high, Doctor Nedd said.
"When the impulses go to the hypothalamus, you can get a sense of euphoria, a sense that you're not responsible, you can almost do anything, there's a lack of control," he said.
But regaining control can take "just nanoseconds," he added. It can be as easy as taking a deep breath. "We need to learn to respond to situations rather than to react like we're wind-up toys ready to be released when any twig falls."
In the Highway 401 case, Staff Sgt. MAHONEY- BRUER said old-fashioned common courtesy could have prevented the crash.
"It's hard to be angry at somebody that waves a hand and says sorry, but when you get two hotheads together, that really precipitates the problem," he said. He said the crash is also an example that the public isn't getting the message about the life-saving benefit of wearing a seatbelt.
Wayne WINSOR, 39, of Milton, turned himself in to the local collision reporting centre at 2: 40 p.m. yesterday. Ontario Provincial Police officers picked him up and brought him to their Port Credit detachment for questioning.
He is scheduled to appear in court this morning.

'The Sibelius of Latvia' made his mark in Canada as a composer and teacher
He fled his homeland at the end of the Second World War and settled in Toronto in 1951 to produce a steady stream of symphonies, concertos, cantatas and chamber music
By Ken WINTERS, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Talivaldis KENINS was a major musical figure in the latter half of the 20th century, both retroactively in his native Latvia and pro-actively in Canada.
He arrived in Canada in 1951 to serve as organist and choirmaster of the Latvian congregation of St. Andrew's Lutheran Church in Toronto, and stayed on to carve out a career as a teacher, conductor, performer and composer. A professor emeritus of the Toronto's faculty of music, he was celebrated for his chamber music as well as for composing symphonies, concertos, cantatas and for the organ.
Prof. KENINS was born into a cultivated Latvian family. His mother was a writer, while his father was a lawyer, diplomat, politician and nationalist who would later die in a Soviet gulag.
Young Tali, as he was called, began playing the piano when he was 5, but as he said, "music was never forced on me because I was not expected to be a musician." Instead, everyone anticipated he would become a diplomat. With that career in mind, he was sent to the Lycée de Grenoble, in France, where he graduated in 1939. He returned home to Riga, where he turned instead to music and took up studies at the Latvian State Conservatory. He was compelled to leave Latvia when the Soviet Union occupied Latvia at the end of the Second World War.
He returned to France, where he won a scholarship to the Conservatoire de Paris. In 1950, his Cello Sonata, which he composed for his graduation, had its premiere at the Salle Gaveau concert hall in Paris by French cellist Maurice Gendron.
After graduating, he had some difficulty making a living. By that time, he had fallen in love with Valda DREIMANIS, a young countrywoman he had met in Paris. They married and were soon expecting their first child. He was playing the piano in bars to keep bread on the table when a letter arrived from Canada offering a job as organist and choirmaster at the St. Andrew's Latvian Lutheran Church on Jarvis Street in Toronto.
The KENINS soon set sail for Canada. They arrived in Halifax in November, 1951, and took the train to snow-covered Toronto to begin their new life.
The salary at St. Andrew's was nominal, and to supplement it Prof. KENINS took a job delivering refrigerators and stoves for Simpson's, the department store. Desperate, he asked for a meeting with Arnold WALTER, the director of the newly established faculty of music at the University of Toronto. Celebrated Canadian tenor Edward JOHNSON, now chairman of the board of the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, was also at the meeting. Both men agreed that he should join the faculty of music to teach composition, contrapuntal techniques and keyboard harmony at an annual salary of $2,000.
Thus began a teaching career that Prof. KENINS considered as important as his writing. Composer John BECKWITH became his closest colleague on the faculty. "He and I were appointed to the University of Toronto faculty of music in the same year, 1952," Prof. BECKWITH said. "I had just returned from studying in France. Tali had spent the immediate postwar years at the Conservatoire in Paris, in the same class as Pierre Boulez. He was the only colleague with whom I could enjoy habitually conversing in French."
Prof. KENINS, who became a Canadian citizen in 1956, went on to teach such pupils as pianists Arthur Ozolins and William Aide, musicologist Walter Kemp and composers Edward Laufer, Bruce Mather and Ben McPeek, plus a generation of younger composers.
He continued along his twin paths as teacher and composer with unflagging ebullience until 1984, when he retired as professor emeritus. His composing, however, continued apace.
Prof. BECKWITH, who retired from University of Toronto as professor emeritus six years later, said Prof. KENINS excelled as a pianist and improviser. "What Tali had was craft. He had it up to his eyebrows. He was at home in counterpoint and fugue. He had that fluency that all composers strive for but many find hard to achieve."
His compositions deserve to be better known, said Prof. BECKWITH. "In Latvia, despite his emigration, Tali became known as the country's national composer, like Neilsen in Denmark or Tubin in Estonia. He was also the Latvian Sibelius, with eight superb symphonies in his output. Symphonies, I might add, which Canada's major orchestras have ignored, a fact I find not surprising but absolutely appalling."
The Eighth Symphony, commissioned for the Latvian Song Festival in Toronto, had a major role for concert organ, to take advantage of the Gabriel Kney organ at Roy Thomson Hall, where the work was premiered in 1986.
Latvian-Canadian pianist Arthur Ozolins is a champion of Prof. KENINS's music. He plays all four piano sonatas, including the Schumann Paraphrase, and the concertos. He has recorded the First Sonata, and he gave the premiere of the Concerto for Piano with Strings and Percussion in 1991 at Roy Thomson Hall. Mr. Ozolins hears the influence of French composer Olivier Messaien in these works, but points out Prof. KENINS's highly personal use of the octatonic scale (alternating semi-tones and tones) and his fondness for discords of the seventh and the minor second.
Mr. Ozolins was a pupil and protégé of Prof. KENINS since his arrival in Canada in 1958. "He treated me almost as a son. He loved to spend his summers in a cottage in Wiarton, on Georgian Bay, where he did most of his composing. His wife was not much interested in music, but she was a superb cook… and she babied KENINS. I spent a summer with them and it was an idyllic time. I remember his younger son, Andy, who then was about 15, copying his dad's manuscripts in the most beautiful, meticulous hand in India ink."
The elder son, the cellist George KENINS, also remembers an earlier summer, when he was in his mid-teens, sight-reading with his father the Beethoven cello sonatas. "We would also do solfège to Bach fugues. So when I got to the University of Toronto, I was ready. He was a teacher to me, but I was seldom aware of it. His aim was to make his pupils think in music for themselves."
He said his father always composed to order. "He agreed with Hindemith, who said, 'The muse has learned to be prompt.' He also didn't like revising things. He would rather write a new piece. He wasn't attracted by the wave of minimalism which swept up composers of the time. He said, 'I am not a minimalist; I am a maximalist.' "
Prof. KENINS also liked to say he was not an innovator, but a follower. "But as a follower, I try to put in as much as I can of my own mind, my spirit and my message… But I can tell you I learned a very great deal indeed from my teachers… I also always followed the advice of Jean Cocteau, who said 'The great masters are inimitable; therefore, imitate them.' My model was Maurice Ravel. His aim was, in the minimum of time, to say important things."
For all that, Prof. KENINS said that in writing symphonies, he chose to take new paths in different directions. "The Third was a stepping stone, when I realized I was able to express my priorities in music and drama in a symphonic language," he said. "In the Fourth, I set out to find whether the latest devices, or catalogues of devices, would fit my musical thinking.
"They have said in France and Canada, and now in Latvia, that KENINS has lots of craft. I hope that, besides the craft, there is some talent and some music, too."
Prof. KENINS received Latvia's highest honour, the Order of the Three Stars.
In 1994, he finished what he vowed was his last large work, the Nonet, subtitled L'Ultima Sinfonia. He had spent eight years on it and declared that it included all he knew and had to say. "You know, Copland said, 'To write one minute of music is nothing, but to write two minutes is already more complicated.' Here, I have written a 40-minute work, and that was extremely complicated and very exhausting. So this will be the last."
Four years later, however, he was inspired to write his Viola Concerto. Commissioned by the great violist Rivka Golani, at her request, it was premiered by her in 2000. The work really was his last.
He was, according to Latvian composer Peteris Plakidis, a witty writer of music. "His music is full of self-irony, just like the man. He said, 'I don't like my own compositions very much, but I like terribly to compose them.' "
Talivaldis KENINS was born in Liepaja, Latvia, on April 23, 1919. He died of pneumonia in Toronto on January 21, 2008. He was 88. He was predeceased by his wife, Valda, in 2006. He is survived by his sons George and Andy and his grandchildren Aleks, Amanda, Laura, Christie and Daina.
