"WAD" 2008 Obituary

WADDELL o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-02-15 published
Financial Post editor was the godfather of business journalism in Canada
An economist first and journalist second, he understood early the importance of properly covering Bay Street and financial affairs. He also had an uncanny knack for discovering newsroom talent
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- Dalton ROBERTSON was executive editor of The Financial Post back when it was a broadsheet weekly and had enormous influence in the framing of public policy in Canada. He knew his weekly could not compete with The Globe and Mail's daily Report on Business, but using clear writing and solid content, he often scooped the competition.
Every week for more than 20 years, he wrote two front-page columns for the paper. One was an unsigned editorial, called The Nation's Business. The other was the Outlook column, a weekly examination of politics and economics in Canada.
He joined the newspaper in 1955 and, over the course of 32 years, Mr. ROBERTSON became a hugely influential figure in Canadian business journalism.
Dalton ROBERTSON was born in Rhode Island to Canadian parents who returned home soon after his birth. He spent much of his boyhood in Harriston, Ontario, a rural backwater about halfway between Toronto and Lake Huron. Although he came from a distinguished family - one of his grandfathers had been both the mayor of Harriston and a member of Parliament - he grew up relatively poor.
After Harriston High School, he went to the University of Toronto, graduating in 1949. He studied economics at the University of Chicago, although he was never of the Milton Friedman school of thought. Mr. ROBERTSON's politics were capital-L Liberal and he was an admirer of Walter Gordon, who was minister of finance in the Lester Pearson years and a staunch Canadian economic nationalist.
Mr. ROBERTSON worked in the economics and research branch of federal Labour Department for three years. His main achievement there was starting a magazine for the Civil Service Association. His first full-time job in journalism was at Canadian Business magazine, then located in Montreal. He joined the Financial Post two years later, at $500 a year.
He was hired by Ron McEACHREN, a tyrant of an editor who terrified most of his employees. Not Mr. ROBERTSON. They proved to get along well. He learned to mimic Mr. McEACHREN's voice and he liked to telephone reporters and demand they report to the boss's office. The reporters would arrive, shaking in their boots, to find Mr. ROBERTSON waiting outside the door and hugely enjoying his joke.
He took his work seriously, however, and felt passionately about the issues of the day. In 1961, he rose to the defence of James Coyne, the Bank of Canada governor, who was fired by prime minister John Diefenbaker for taking a contradictory attitude to inflation.
"Dalton was firmly against inflation and for the bank's independence," said his friend and colleague Neville NANKIVELL, who was editor of the Financial Post for many years.
During the peak of stagflation in the Pierre Trudeau years, Mr. ROBERTSON chastised the federal Liberals for failing to control inflation. "Restraint, it seems, has been clearly established as all that is needed to cure Canada's persistent twitch towards double-digit inflation," began his editorial of February 7, 1976.
Besides writing editorials, he was sent all over the world to return with essays and long reports on such events as Britain entering the European Community. He was dispatched to Australia to investigate why that country's development was eclipsing Canada's and how that might have shocked Wilfrid Laurier, a prime minister who had famously predicted that the 20th century would belong to Canada.
"The tide of money going into Australian resources - and many other factors as well - suggests that if the 20th century is to belong to anybody, it may be to Australia and not to Canada," he wrote in a long special report in 1971.
Later, as executive editor, he was in charge of just about everything, including running the paper's domestic and foreign bureaus. A slender and outgoing man who was well liked by colleagues, he possessed a distinctive sense of style and a refined fondness for certain cigars. With one eye brown and the other blue, he sported a neatly trimmed beard and dressed well even while at home with Friends. Once, on a trip to the Middle East, he took along a white suit but was discouraged from attending a formal dinner. Canadian embassy officials insisted he stay away; only the local potentate could wear white.
In the newsroom, he was a tough boss who demanded clear writing and accuracy from his stable of writers and reporters. He had "a good eye for hiring and capacity for firing without leaving blood on the floor," said his death notice, most of which he wrote himself.
He was also seen as an early advocate for covering economics and business properly.
"He played a really important role when business journalism was starting to evolve, not just in his own work but in the people he hired," said Christopher WADDELL, a professor of journalism at Carleton University who once worked under Mr. ROBERTSON. " Dalton laid the groundwork for business journalism for the last 25 years."
Over the years, he groomed scores of young journalists and helped launch them in their careers. Among them are Andrew Coyne of Maclean's; Globe and Mail editor Edward Greenspon; Giles Gherson, former editor of the Toronto Star and Edmonton Journal; Andrew Cohen, a Carleton University associate professor and author Gordon Pitts, a Report on Business columnist; Richard Blackwell, an Report on Business reporter; and Ian Brown, a Globe feature writer.
"He ran an incubator for business journalists," said Patricia Best, who worked at The Financial Post from 1978 to 1985 and is now an Report on Business columnist. "Dalton was so different. When he hired me, he asked, 'What are you reading?' I said, Alice Munro's short stories, which later I thought might not have been too businesslike. The next day, he hired me and said it was because I was reading Alice Munro."
She became the first woman at The Financial Post to cover the auto industry and came to realize that, while he was kind, he had high standards. "Dalton had faith in people and he took a gamble on them. [But] he was tough as nails. He didn't like any kind of fakery."
On a personal level, he took another gamble in 1981, when he bought a house in southwestern France. After The Financial Post, it was to become his second great passion. Located in the village of Puycelci, about an hour north of Toulouse, it, too, benefited from the ROBERTSON sense of style.
"It was built into the ramparts of the village and Dalton worked at expanding the gardens and the house," said Bea RIDDELL, a colleague at The Financial Post and one of Mr. ROBERTSON's closest Friends. "He was a marvellous host, whether it was in France or at home in Toronto."
He so loved the place that he decided to take early retirement and spend more time there. To better integrate himself in the community, he hired a local person to tutor him in French so that he eventually became fluent.
For many years, he also owned a large house in the Rosedale area of Toronto as well as a cottage in Ontario's Muskoka cottage country. He later sold the Toronto house to concentrate on his property in France.
He had done that sort of thing many times before - he was an adept flipper of real estate, working his way up from the Toronto neighbourhoods of Riverdale and Cabbagetown to the heights of inner Rosedale and then to a choice property in France, all the while keeping a smaller place back home. "You can't make any money in journalism," he liked to say.
Not that anyone ever heard from him when he was in France for long periods - at least not by e-mail. He hated computers. When they arrived in force at The Financial Post, he ignored them. He never owned one, never had an e-mail address and never learned to type with any degree of skill or enthusiasm. "He would retire into his office and write his editorials in long hand, then give them to someone to type them out," Mr. Pitts recalled.
In later years, if Mr. ROBERTSON had to send or receive e-mail, he would get a friend to do it for him using their own account, usually that of his companion, Brian WILKS.
His retirement from The Financial Post in 1987 was a bittersweet event. He was off for glorious France, but leaving his first love behind - a somewhat unrequited love, at that. Years before, he had been openly promised the job of editor-in-chief but then passed over when the time came in the mid-1970s. Executives told him they could not appoint a gay man as the editor of Canada's most prominent business newspaper. Instead, they named Mr. NANKIVELL to the job. By way of compromise, Mr. ROBERTSON became executive editor.
Characteristically, he kept his disappointment to himself and a few select Friends. At his retirement party, he joked that he was leaving for three reasons: the advance of technology the new work ethic that demanded arriving at the office before 10 a.m.; and society's puritanical attitude against smoking.
Dalton Sinclair ROBERTSON was born in Providence, R.I., on October 25, 1927. He died after collapsing in Mexico on January 27, 2008. He was 80 and suffered from lupus. He was 80. He is survived by companion Brian WILKS.

WADE o@ca.on.manitoulin.howland.little_current.manitoulin_expositor 2008-11-12 published
WADE--In memory of my son Brent WADE who was killed on the job at the age of 22.
Also in memory of all those parents who have lost a child, please know my
thoughts and prayers are with you.
Oh how the past nine years have flown.
I think of the self I was and no longer am,
And the different self that now has grown.
November 9, 1999, is when Brent's life ceased and this new life of mine
began.
In so many ways it seems like yesterday, the pain of losing him was so
intense.
With pain so unimaginable, my body had no means of self defense.
My heart ached, my stomach pained, thoughts of blackness, helplessness
and hopelessness filled me.
Our family circle now broken, a life without him I could not see.
SURVIVE! I asked how can anyone survive when your child dies and is gone
forever.
I felt broken and beaten like an uprooted tree.
Feelings of envy, anger, resentment and the question " WHY," always on my
mind.
Our children are an extension of ourselves, so much a part of us, part of
our dreams. They are the future.
Nine years later I now say, " YES," to taking the reins to reclaim my life
and now feeling so very, very blessed.
How did I endure this never ending journey of grief, through the maze of
emotions and the dark valleys so deep, to find this new meaning, new hope
and see light?
The success of my journey has been dependent on many.
1) My daughters and I always there for one another through this
rollercoaster ride.
2) My very special close Friends, you know who you are. Uncle Wayne and
Anna, Marg and Roy, Dan and Auntie Jen like family you are. You have all
been there, never ceasing to understand and to care. You would listen in
non judgemental ways to my stories as over and over I would share.
Sometimes family, because of their closeness to Brent and because each of
us are unique with our own grief and possibly are afraid of causing pain
and tears, cannot understand how important sharing memories, sharing
stories, acknowledging him on special occasions, helps us as Brent's
immediate family to travel this journey of grief to come to a point of
healing.
It is not to get over it as some people say, it is to learn to cope and
move on in a positive way.
3) The first couple of years the letters and calls from his Friends
sharing their stories, their memories of Brent, showed how they cared and
how Brent had touched their lives. Never underestimate the healing power
of your child's Friends.
4) A big part of my journey to healing has come from my involvement with
The Threads of Life, a national not for profit organization which came
into existence 5 years ago. Our mission is to provide peer support for
those who have suffered losses in the workplace and to increase awareness
of safety within the workplace. I am a volunteer family guide in this
organization.
We are available to make presentations to schools, to companies large or
small. We share our story about how losing our child to a workplace
tragedy, injury or occupational disease affects every aspect of our life.
By sharing my story not only does it validate Brent's life but if it
makes even one person more conscientious of workplace safety and
increases awareness of their responsibilities and rights as an employee
and co-worker and one life is saved, then Brent's death has not been for
nothing. We want to make a difference. One thread alone is weak, when
woven together it is strong. I raise my glass in a toast to you Brent, of
whom I love so dearly and miss so very much each day. I love you my son.
Love always into eternity Mom, Chrissy, and Laura. Xoxo
