ROY--Heidi Louanne Sarah. June 28, 1986 - January 12, 2006
You left my side so swiftly
My heart so filled with grief
I think of you so often
These words I now repeat
When in the sky a rainbow
I always think of you
The colours are so vivid
You're always in my view
Each day the sky an angel
Will always follow me
Wings of the brightest sunshine
Forever you will be
May rainbows always follow
Where you may go
So I can trace the beauty
Of the love I used to know
You stay within my heart
My child of gentle grace
Forever you are etched with love
Within my arms embraced
You'll never be forgotten
You live within my dreams
My perfect gentle daughter
Your rainbow always gleams
In prayer I say so sadly
I wish that you were here
Then I am reminded
Your wings forever near
Dreams of you I treasure
As time goes slowly by
Your rainbow showing brightly
My gift within the sky.
Lovingly remembered by her mom May (Tut) ROY

ROY--In memory of our sister and auntie Heidi Louanne Sarah. June 28, 1986 - January 12, 2006
She is gone, but not forgotten
Her memory lives on
Heidi, you were a blessing
Who fulfilled our lives for a while.
Now our eyes are filled with sorrow
For without you is how we face tomorrow
Laughter is how we remember you best
Full of faith, sunshine, and happiness.
Baseball, hockey, Friends, family, and cheer
Just a few of the things that you held dear.
Holidays and birthdays will never be the same
Without you there to argue about who's gonna win the game.
What will the Playboyz do without their biggest fan?
They'll probably still hear you yelling as we all know you can.
God is smiling down as you watch us from above,
Now He has our biggest fan with that perfect golden smile.
Save a game for us because we'll be seeing you one day,
Reunited in the Spirit World, for eternity we will stay.
Our good times are now a memory Know that you are in our hearts.
We love you.

His landmark commission on drugs urged legalizing marijuana in Already a respected legal scholar, he became an improbable counterculture icon at the height of the hippy era by recommending leniency and the decriminalization of recreational drugs
By Noreen SHANAHAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S6
Toronto -- Gerald LE DAIN's respect for civil liberties went so far as to rouse John Lennon and Yoko Ono from their bed. It was 1969, the year of the couple's "bed-in for peace" at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, and the year Judge LE DAIN began chairing the much-referenced but largely ignored Commission of Inquiry into the Non-Medical Use of Drugs.
The Le Dain commission's final report was one of the most politically explosive documents ever put before the federal government. The commission held 46 days of public hearings, received 365 submissions and heard from 12,000 people in about 30 cities and at more than 20 university campuses across the country. In its final report, in 1973, the commission recommended decriminalizing marijuana possession because the law-enforcement costs of prohibition were too great, and suggested that Canada focus on frank education rather than harsh penalization. It also recommended treatment for heroin addiction and sharp warnings about nicotine and alcohol. This was delivered at a time when hysteria about the evils of pot was on everyone's lips and many parents wanted the law to save their drug-addled teenagers.
The report also made Judge LE DAIN something of an unlikely counterculture icon and helped win him a place on the Supreme Court of Canada during the formative years of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Gerald LE DAIN was born in Montreal to Eric LE DAIN and Antoinette WHITHARD. His younger brother, Bruce, went on to become one of Canada's foremost impressionist landscape painters in the style of A.Y. Jackson and Tom Thomson. Gerry graduated from West Hill High School in 1942 and a year later, at 18, he joined the army and became a gunner with the 7th Medium Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery, a unit that was in the thick of the fighting from D-Day until the surrender of Germany in May of 1945.
Immediately after the war, he attended the military's ad hoc Khaki University in England. One day, the school arranged a debate with students of Westfield College, then a women-only college associated with the University of London. During the event (debate topic: a woman's place in the home,) he met Cynthia Emily ROY and, two weeks later, they became engaged. After being demobilized from the army, she joined him in Montreal, where they married and he set about finishing his education.
In 1949, he obtained a law degree from McGill University and was called to the Quebec bar. He spent the following year at a university in Lyons, where he gained his doctorate. On his return from France, he joined the Montreal law firm of Walker, Martineau, Chauvin, Walker and Allison and stayed three years until he returned to McGill as a professor of constitutional and administrative law. He also worked as counsel to Quebec's attorney-general on constitutional cases.
In 1967, he left Montreal to become dean of Osgoode Hall Law School, where, said colleague Harry Arthurs, he presided over a revolution in Canadian legal education. "It was his responsibility to persuade York University, the Law Society of Upper Canada, and the world at large, that what we were doing was not only the legitimate - not only the sensible - but the inevitable way forward." It was during this time that Pierre Trudeau asked Judge LE DAIN to chair the commission. He was, at 44, perfectly suited to the job in many ways. By then, many young Canadians were indulging in marijuana and other recreational drugs; as a university professor, he was surrounded by many students who had at least given it a try. And as the father of a large family, he was adept at bridging the generation gap and responding empathetically. During the time he chaired the commission, there were four full-fledged teenagers, and one on the cusp, living in the LE DAIN home.
The commissioners were asked to study the non-medical use of sedative, stimulant, tranquillizing, hallucinogenic and other psychotropic drugs or substances, including the experience of users. At his first news conference in 1969, he announced that, in the interest of research, he might experiment with the stuff himself.
"We made it possible to talk about drugs openly," he later said in an interview with The Globe and Mail. "In some of our early hearings, especially in smaller communities, you could feel the guilt that had been stored up around drugs. We also made it possible for people to criticize their institutions, to challenge their doctors, their school boards, their churches."
The Le Dain commission broke new ground in terms of taking the show on the road, said Mel GREEN, who worked as a sociologist with Judge LE DAIN at the time. Judge LE DAIN redefined the nature of a public inquiry by asking the public to directly participate, he said. "The commission found little traction in terms of changes in the law itself. … There was a cultural divide between conventional attitudes and youth culture and I think the Le Dain commission helped bridge that gap." Inspired by Judge LE DAIN, Mr. GREEN decided to switch careers and went to law school. He is now an Ontario provincial court judge.
By early 1969, John Lennon and Yoko Ono had created a stir with their public "bed-in" at a hotel in Amsterdam. On May 26, the couple booked into Room 1742 at the Queen Elizabeth in Montreal. To Judge LE DAIN, they seemed to be just the kind of advocates for youth the commission should hear from. A meeting was arranged aboard a C.N. train in Montreal and, for 90 minutes, the couple shared their views on the drug culture and the generation gap. "This is the opportunity for Canada to lead the world," said Mr. Lennon, referring to the Le Dain commission. "Canada's image is just about getting groovy, you know." When it was over, Mr. Lennon gave his phone number to members of the commission.
It was not always such clear sailing. Commissioners also had to contend with a kind of "live bait" issue, where police were arresting young people who braved the generational divide to attend these public gatherings and tell their stories. In 1969, the 16-year-old son of communications theorist Marshall McLUHAN was arrested as he was leaving a coffee shop in Yorkville, Toronto's then-hippy neighbourhood, where the commission was meeting. Michael McLUHAN was convicted of criminal possession of a small amount of hashish and sentenced to 60 days in jail; he ended up serving 30 days and was eventually pardoned.
Marie-Andrée Bertrand, one of the Le Dain commissioners, remembers those days and the difficulties in protecting witnesses. "Some of us went to [then-solicitor-general Pierre] Goyer and we said, 'Call off your gendarmes, monsieur!' and went to Trudeau, and it was slightly more calm after that," she told the Ottawa Citizen in 2003. "Imagine if Monsieur Lennon had been arrested or harassed. What a humiliation that would have been for all of us."
Although the commission's recommendations were never followed, there were significant changes in the public attitude toward drugs and in lighter sentences being handed down to offenders.
At a time when the generation gap was described as a gulf, Judge LE DAIN had gained the respect of both sides of the drug-use argument. In a 1988 Globe and Mail column, Michael VALPY described him as a quiet, intellectual, spiritually minded academic who earned the praise of young people, the social agencies and the scientific community. "His commission acquired the reputation of being the most hard-working, open-minded and widely respected ever to tackle a major national problem."
In 1975, Judge LE DAIN was appointed to the Federal Court of Appeal and the Court Martial Appeal Court. He remained there until May of 1984, when Mr. Trudeau appointed him to the Supreme Court.
His tenure at the court during the early years of the Charter proved to be, in some ways, a trial by fire not only for him but for the other eight justices as well. A 1988 Globe and Mail article described a series of crises that nearly exhausted the court as a result of a backlog of Charter cases. At the time, it was referred to by political scientist Peter Russell as "A terrible rash of injuries" similar to the kind experienced by beleaguered players on a hockey team.
Not surprisingly, Judge LE DAIN was one of the members of the court who struggled most during this time. As a result, he stayed only five years before an emotional breakdown brought about his retirement in 1988. Even so, he left his mark on Charter decisions.
One example was the case of R. v. Therens (1985). The issue was whether a drunk driver could evade conviction on the grounds that police had violated his Charter rights by not informing him of his right to call a lawyer before compelling him to take a breathalyzer test. Judge LE DAIN's former law clerk, Bruce RYDER, recalls that he struggled painfully over the case - partly because it recalled the death of his daughter Jacqueline a decade earlier from an automobile accident.
"As he spoke, he was pounding himself so hard in the chest I thought he might knock himself over. He took a deep breath, and we returned to our work." In the end, Judge LE DAIN crafted an opinion that did right by the victims of highway accidents and by the Charter. In memorable language, he affirmed that the enactment of the Charter signalled a new era in the protection of fundamental rights and freedoms.
"Out of complexity and nuance, he produced masterfully succinct statements of the law," said Mr. RYDER.
In his retirement, Judge LE DAIN worked on a range of projects, including preparing his papers for the national archives and meticulously crafting his memoirs. But his early retirement continued to be plagued by personal tragedy: first with his wife Cynthia's death in 1995 of cancer, then his daughter Catherine's death of pneumonia in 1998.
In 1990, the U.S. Drug Policy Alliance instituted an award in Gerald LE DAIN's name, to be given to individuals involved in law who have worked within official institutions "when extremist pressures dominate government policies." The influential organization includes law-enforcement officials, academics, professionals, health-care workers, drug users and former users. "We sought to name the awards after our heroes," said founder Arnold Trebach. "Gerald LE DAIN was certainly one of them. Few people realize the level of hate directed at drug users and drug policy reformers decades ago."
Judge LE DAIN, the first Canadian to be so honoured, had earlier been made a companion of the Order of Canada.
Gerald Eric LE DAIN was born on November 27, 1924, in Montreal. He died in his sleep at home on December 18, 2007. He was 83. He is survived by his son Eric and daughters Barbara, Jennifer and Caroline. He was predeceased by his wife, Cynthia, and by daughters Jacqueline and Catherine.
Correction - Friday, January 4, 2007
The majority of the Le Dain Commission on the non-medical use of drugs recommended in 1973 that possession of cannabis should cease to be a criminal offence but that sale and distribution of cannabis should remain a crime. Incorrect information appeared in a headline in yesterday's paper.

Dearest husband for over 53 years of Jacqueline (RUBANOWICZ of Paris, France,) beloved father of Evelyne (Michael GARDNER, Halifax,) Richard (Shona GODWIN, Montreal), Stephen (Michaela LINCOLN, Montreal), and Michael (Linda SALNA, Toronto.) He was the much adored Zeidah of Theo and Michaela Meltzer GARDNER, Alexander and Marieke GARDNER, Sebastian, Aidan, Jacob, Spencer, Ariella, Elijah, Kendra and Alison MELTZER. Also leaving behind brother Murray (Eleanor, Montreal,) sister Mary (Walter NACHUM, Florida,) cousin Lillian Meltzer GOLDSTEIN, many nieces, nephews, grand nieces, grand-nephews, and other cousins in Canada, the United States, France and Israel.
Will be greatly missed by Mary ROY MELTZER and Elizabeth BOSCO who provided loving home support over the decades.
Predeceased by his father Samuel MELTZER (who immigrated to Saint John from Vilna, Lithuania) and mother Alice {DRITZ} MELTZER (Vilna, Lithuania) who died in Saint John when Gar was only two, much-loved stepmother, Sarah BALAGENSKI (Warsaw, Poland,) and siblings Lillian (Sydney SCHOEN), Kaye (Barney COLTON), Edward, Anne (Jack LEVINE), Frances (Mischa GELTMAN) and Bill (Doreen.) He dearly loved his in-laws Simon RUBANOWICZ and Raymonde {GORDON} RUBANOWICZ who had also predeceased him. Gar was the kindest, most generous, fair, honourable, humble, optimistic, and evercourteous man who had an indomitable spirit to the very end, and had an irrepressible Gar Heart, that continued to beat long after the doctors thought it would. Gar always took the high road, always turned the other cheek, always had a good word with a smile for everyone. He was committed to promoting human rights, brotherhood, mutual respect, peace and community service throughout his life. He was active in the scouting movement, Akela for over 25 years with the Judaen and then the Eli Boyaner Cub Pack in Saint John. He considered each of his cubs as one of his boys. He delivered Meals on Wheels, offered pastoral care at the Saint John Regional Hospital, served on the Board of the Shaarei Zedek Synagogue, was a founding member and Commander of the Jewish War Veterans in Atlantic Canada, was a member of the Maritime Parkinsons Association, the North West Commercial Travellers' Association of Canada, Albion Masonic Lodge No. 1, the Saint John Multi-Cultural Association, B'nai Brith, RUSI, and past member of the Carlton Curling Club. Gar was a life member of the No. 2 Legion in Saint John having served in the Canadian army and then the airforce as an Officer Training Instructor during World War 2. After the war he was actively involved as an instructor with the air cadets. Gar believed in working hard, in doing one's best and realizing the fruit of one's labours for family and community. He was a ship chandler, the owner of Gar's Diner, the Gar Meltzer Sales, and a commercial salesman for over 40 years representing some 50 companies throughout Atlantic Canada. Six months on the road every year for decades, he developed a network of customers who became Friends who never forgot him for his acts of kindness and tzadkah. His good deeds were innumerable and we usually only heard by chance from those who were touched by his generosity and altruism. In 1992 he was awarded the Canada 125 Confederation Anniversary Medal for community service. And yet Gar never sought honours or recognition. Gar loved his family and he loved his home. He treasured his Friendship with life-long pal I. J. Davis. Thanks to caregivers Judy and Jackie who were so helpful and compassionate providing athome assistance in Saint John; special hugs to Donna who took such good care of him while visiting in Toronto. Much appreciation to the wonderful medical and nursing staff at Toronto East General Hospital where he spent his last days. Donations may be made to the Maritimes Parkinsons Association or to the Gar MELTZER Memorial Scholarship fund c/o the Toronto Dominion Bank, 78 Main Street West, Saint John, New Brunswick, E2M 3N3. Funeral was held at Brenan's Select Community Funeral Home, Paradise Row, Saint John, New Brunswick (506) 634-7424 on Wednesday April 30, 2008. Interment was in the Shaarei Zedek Cemetery, Westmorland Road, Saint John, New Brunswick. The family sat shivah at 55 Goodrich Street, Saint John, New Brunswick following the interment.

ROY, Joseph " Joe"
Husband, father, grandfather, ex-Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer, hobby farmer. Born October 24, 1939, in Otterburne, Manitoba Died March 7 in Ottawa of acute leukemia, aged 68.
By Christian ROY, Page L6
Considering how often Joe flirted with danger at work and at play, especially on the ski hills, no one thought it would be an illness that would carry him away so abruptly and prematurely.
Joe was raised on the family farm with his three brothers and three sisters. Early on, he began working in the fields gathering hay, harvesting wheat and breeding cattle and foxes. He shared the same passion as all young farm boys - hockey, especially as a teenager with the Collège Otterburne team. To the end, there was nothing he enjoyed more than a good Scotch while watching his favourite team, the Montreal Canadiens.
In his late teens, Joe dreamed of joining the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Prior to his recruitment, he taught for two years in Northern Manitoba. When the call came, he headed for Ottawa, where his first task - although he thought he had forever freed himself from farm duties - was shovelling horse manure in the barns.
Joe enjoyed his years in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Whether in drug enforcement, gathering criminal intelligence or working with the audit team, he considered himself fortunate to do interesting work as part of a team. He made many Friends in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and kept in touch with them throughout his life. In 2006, he attended a gathering of his training class in Regina.
While working in Long Sault, Ontario, Joe met Diane BELLEFEUILLE of Cornwall. Shortly after, she told him she was going to teach in Germany. Joe will not be remembered for making hasty decisions, but in this case he wasted no time. He proposed, Diane cancelled her trip and they spent the next 40 years together. They had two children, Christian and Josée.
After several moves related to his work, the couple settled on a farm in Montebello, Quebec, and built their own home. The farm was Joe's passion. He loved his work but was happiest sitting on his tractor, raising cows and tending to his horses. The Manitoba farm boy stayed within him forever.
In addition to numerous ski trips in some of the world's greatest resorts, Joe and Diane joined Friendship Force International and made Friends around the globe while receiving guests on their farm. After retiring in 1994, Joe became a ski guide at Mont Tremblant Ski Resort and practised his favourite sport, skiing.
Being a grandfather was a great joy for Joe. He taught the eldest five of his six grandchildren how to ski, snowshoe, cycle, fish, swim, ride on horseback and take care of animals. They remained close to him as he grew older.
Joe found out he had leukemia six months before he died. He faced death with strength and dignity, reassuring his loved ones and facing the unknown with serenity.
Christian ROY is Joe's son.

Whenever times were tough in our family
It was my father who kept our spirits up.
No matter what happened,
He was always there for us.
Spending time together, talking, laughing
and working alongside one another.
Those were the moments that mattered.
Thank you Dad for the Grace in which you
lived your life and with so much sacrifice,
The Fairness with which you treated people,
The Laughter you gave so easily, leaving
happier hearts in its wake, and the Love.
"Three things continue forever. Faith, hope and love. And the greatest of these is love."
Missing you every day, Robin, Tammy, Gwen.
