Keith OLEKSIUK
By Ross HOWARD and Gary CWITCO, Monday, September 5, 2005, Page A16
Labour advocate, socialist, canoeist. Born April 3, 1947, in Chippewa, Ontario Died Feb 22, in Vancouver, of cancer, aged Keith OLEKSIUK had never considered his own obituary when he was stricken with cancer. He rarely talked of his accomplishments and his still-expanding career as a labour lawyer. For the last two decades, his life had focused almost exclusively on labour relations and New Democratic Party politics, his family and his community in Vancouver. But he often recited the boyhood joys of jumping into Chippewa Creek, near Niagara Falls, where he was born.
Early on, Keith acquired a respect for sweat labour and harsh conditions working summers in Chippewa's Norton foundry. At York University he was an average arts student with an abnormal course load in political theory. Keith ignored the campus protests over co-ed dorms and marijuana laws, and quietly focused on bigger issues. After graduation Keith joined the front lines of social-justice advocacy, becoming director of the Toronto Unemployment Help Centre. His evenings were eclectic: exploring Toronto's left-wing political circles, and Toronto's music scene. Class-consciousness was linked to most things about Keith: it was Grossman's and the Silver Rail, not the O'Keefe Centre, for him. When he went further afield, it was to the North -- the Nahanni River -- for serious canoe-tripping.
The Marxist Institute attracted his intellectual curiosity but its lack of activism held no lasting appeal. It was storefront lawyers, getting dirty in the trenches, that propelled him to Osgoode Hall Law School in 1980. It was there he met his future wife, Cathy AGNEW. In 1983 he joined the United Steelworkers of America staff.
Keith enthusiastically tackled even arcane legal issues, but he personally found most satisfaction in the long evening meetings with steelworkers in towns such as Flin Flon, Snow Lake, Manitoba, and Trail, British Columbia The plain-speaking young lawyer, in blue jeans and leather jacket, could strategize with workers over beers or the labour leadership across Canada.
In 1990, the steelworkers union lured Keith to Vancouver. This new posting brought him before the British Columbia Labour Relations Board. Shortly thereafter, then-premier Michael Harcourt's New Democratic Party government tapped Keith as a vice-chair for the Labour Relations Board. Although he had not sought the post, Keith welcomed the chance to meld adjudication with a labour consciousness. He also championed efficiency and intellectual rigour in Labour Relations Board rulings. Premier Glen Clark made him chair in 1996. He resigned in 2000 without public comment.
Keith was not one to waste his time on tired ideas or tiresome individuals. As a lawyer and adjudicator, he deplored time-wasting litigators arguing flimsy cases. He acknowledged posturing as a form of protest but his patience was short.
Except on the playing field. When coaching his beloved Trout Lake soccer, baseball or hockey teams, Keith had unlimited patience for the weakest player. His encouragement for young teams, and his attention to the minutiae, was a restorative alternative to the cut-throat realm of British Columbia labour relations. His children Danny, Shane and Kayla, were his greatest pride and, with Cathy, the centre of his life.
By 2002 Keith was again before the British Columbia Labour Board, as staff lawyer for the British Columbia Government Employees Union fighting the new British Columbia Liberal government policies. He also resumed New Democratic Party political activism and mused about international work.
Life, although not necessarily the state of the world, pleased Keith, but nothing fulfilled him more than the accomplishments and love of his family.
His trademark ear-to-ear grin, his sparkling eyes and his good-hearted challenging nature will be sorely missed.
Ross was Keith's canoe partner; Gary his sometimes squash partner.

Damaged shelter lacked sprinklers
Facility still met building, fire codes
40-year-old man died in Sunday fire
By Dale Anne FREED, Staff Reporter
The Fred Victor Centre, where a 40-year-old man died in a fire Sunday night, met building and fire code standards even though it did not have sprinklers in residential areas, the centre's executive director says.
Sprinklers are located in the garbage area and parking and ground-level areas of the centre, which provides permanent housing for 194 previously homeless people, Mark ASTON said yesterday.
He said the fire code didn't require them in residential levels. Fire department spokesman David SHEEN confirmed that the four-storey centre complied with sprinkler standards.
Fire victim Abdirazak (Nero) KAILLIE was found in his second-floor apartment, next to the apartment where the blaze started, police Det. Matt MOYER said.
ASTON said smoking was a possible cause of the fire, but added, "that would be speculation at this point." He said smoking was permitted in the apartments.
KAILLIE's distraught sister and mother arrived at the fire scene Sunday night and spoke with police, MOYER said.
Born in Somalia, KAILLIE had lived in the centre for about 18 months, said Keith HAMBLY, director of Fred Victor's housing and shelter services.
"He was well liked in the community," HAMBLY said. It was a "fresh start for him."
One friend said KAILLIE was receiving disability payments.
About 50 Fred Victor residents were affected by the fire and were offered room at downtown shelters so they wouldn't have to go back on the streets, ASTON said.
"If we have a way to prevent such tragedies in the future then we have a responsibility to consider it," said Brendan AGNEW- ILER, a spokesperson for Mayor David MILLER.
Toronto Fire Chief Bill STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said he wants sprinklers made mandatory in all new residential construction. He said the department is supporting a private member's bill on mandatory sprinklers in new residential construction that is scheduled for second reading at Queen's Park on Thursday.
STEWARD/STEWART/STUART acknowledged that retrofitting residential buildings with sprinklers would be costly. "The industry indicates it costs about $3.50 to $4 per square foot," he said. If the Fred Victor board has the money, he said, "then in the interest of public safety, why not?"
STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said there were 259 fire deaths in Toronto between 1994 and 2004, of which 223 were on residential properties.
