Huguette BURROUGHS, Reporter, Politician: 1949-2005
Born with a form of glaucoma, she never allowed problems to cloud her ambitions, writes Sandra MARTIN. A brave Francophone voice in an overwhelmingly English media, she single-mindedly overcame all obstacles
By Sandra MARTIN, Thursday, April 28, 2005, Page S7
Lots of journalists switch from covering politicians to holding office, but few overcome more obstacles or embrace public service with such fervour as Huguette BURROUGHS. Blind, with one leg amputated because of diabetes and requiring dialysis three times a week, Ms. BURROUGHS was revered in Eastern Ontario for her spirit, her outreach and her accomplishments.
"She had a tough childhood, but she blossomed in later life," said Etienne SAINT- AUBIN, a Franco-Ontarian lawyer, who met Ms. BURROUGHS in 1987, shortly after he left the Ontario Ministry of the Attorney-General in Toronto to move to Cornwall, Ontario, so he could work in a legal aid clinic.
At the time, Ms. BURROUGHS was the sole reporter for the French language weekly Le Journal de Cornwall. Mr. SAINT- AUBIN met her when he put an ad in the paper and saw her peering at her typewriter about an inch away from the keys. She had an original way of putting things and was able to get to the quick of the matter very well, he said, but she wasn't a muckraker. Instead, she preferred to present information in a straightforward way that let people make up their own minds.
For nearly 30 years, Ms. BURROUGHS was first a radio and then a print journalist for francophone media outlets. And when her health deteriorated to the point where she could no longer cover municipal politics, she ran for city council and served her community from the other side of the microphone and the podium.
Huguette BURROUGHS was born July 16, 1949, in L'Original, a village between Ottawa and Hawkesbury, the middle child and only daughter of Eugene and Aurore BRABANT. Her father was a seasonal construction worker, toiling as a dynamite handler for highway crews, and her mother was a homemaker. Huguette and her younger brother Yvan were born with a degenerative form of glaucoma. Huguette was luckier than her younger brother, retaining some vision until she went blind at 32.
Her problems never clouded her ambition. "I was always wearing heavy glasses," she said in an interview in The Cornwall Standard-Freeholder in 1999, so I was always the last to be picked for any type of game." Instead of moping, she kept score or wrote reports, and determined to excel academically.
"Her childhood was mortgaged by the thought that she would eventually go blind, so she used the time to soak up as much reading as she could because she wanted to be a journalist," said her friend Etienne SAINT- AUBIN. Her brother Charles, an editor for Le Droit in Ottawa, remembers his younger sister writing poetry as small girl and, when she was in high school, producing a column on local events for Le Carillon, a weekly in Hawkesbury.
When Huguette was in Grade 9, she read Jane S. McIlvaine's novel It Happens Every Thursday, about a couple of journalists who decide to flee their cramped New York apartment and start a weekly newspaper in a small town. The book was subsequently made into a film starring Loretta Young, John Forsythe and Bob MacAvoy. Although neither the novel nor the film is memorable, Huguette never forgot these lines in the text: "If, despite all obstacles, you want to do one thing more than anything else in the world, go ahead. You will certainly succeed."
She kept those words as a personal motto. She wanted to work on the high-school newspaper, but was rejected on the grounds that this activity was reserved for kids in senior grades. So she wrote a letter to the editor saying that "my grandfather fought in the war so we could avoid discrimination and here I was facing it in my own school." Point taken. Huguette became the first Grade 9 student to work as a reporter on the school paper. And when she graduated, she quoted that same passage from It Happens Every Thursday as the theme in her valedictorian's speech.
There was a price for all of this single-mindedness. "I had practically no Friends," she confessed to the Standard Freeholder. After high school, she got a job with CFML, a French language radio station in Cornwall. She showed up for work in September of 1967 and loved the job so much she worked 11-hour days, from 6 a.m. until 5 p.m., covering the police and fire beats and translating documents -- and all for $45 a week.
She worked at the radio station for 11 years until the ownership changed in 1978. By then, she was 29 and her eyesight was declining rapidly. Nevertheless, she switched from broadcast to print, taking a job as news editor at Le Journal de Cornwall.
"She was a very hard worker, and I'm sure she could have spent 24 hours a day working, which she probably did sometimes," the paper's general manager, Roger DUPLANTIE, said later. "She never considered the work she did as a job. It was something she loved and she believed in very strongly."
All of her hard work paid off in a number of French-language awards for editorial writing. "For the longest time, she basically did the paper herself," said her brother, "writing everything that got in the paper -- editorials, news, features. They had a translation business on the side and she would do that, too and I don't think she ever made more than $400 a week."
At the same time as she was working more than fulltime on the newspaper, she wrote La radio malgré tout (radio or nothing), a history of CFML and its impact on the cultural and economic landscape of Cornwall.
She never learned Braille because she could see enough as a child to read on her own. By the time she went blind, she listened to books on tape and used a computer with a voice synthesizer. Self-effacing to the core, Ms. BURROUGHS always said that she was lucky because by the time she needed it, computer technology was advanced enough to scan written text and produce an audio read-out.
An excellent typist, she used a tape recorder like a note book, memorized the sounds of hundreds of voices and relied on her prodigious memory and ferocious energy to overcome her disabilities. Cornwall Mayor Phil POIRIER said "she was probably the best reporter I ever worked with. She was fair, she was objective, not subjective, she did her homework and you couldn't trip her up." When it came to budget deliberations, he said Ms. BURROUGHS knew "as much if not more" than elected officials.
According to Mr. SAINT- AUBIN, she also served as an unofficial community scribe for Franco-Ontarians who needed help with application forms and official letters. "We came to expect so much of her that we would forget she was blind," he said. "She was blessed with work habits that overcame her limitations."
She never married and had no children. Instead of family, she worked as a super-heated volunteer for organizations such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters, United Way and Legal Aid. She was instrumental in establishing CHOD-FM, Cornwall's French-language radio station. In 1992, she was named a woman of distinction in Ontario; in 1994, she was profiled in an National Film Board of Canada documentary series on francophones who were helping to preserve their linguistic culture. In 1996, she received the Order of Ontario.
Her health continued to plague her. She developed diabetes and had trouble keeping it under control. In 1999, she had to have a leg amputated and undergo dialysis three times a week to supplement her faltering kidneys. She was in hospital and then at a rehabilitation facility for six months. Afterward, according to her brother, she defied the pronouncements of health-care workers and insisted on moving back into her own apartment. "She had a very close circle of Friends and they helped her a lot."
Two years later, she reluctantly gave up journalism and plied her skills in a new forum -- municipal politics. Instead of covering city hall, she ran for office in the election in November of 2003 and finished fifth among 23 candidates for 10 seats on Cornwall City Council. "Vision isn't just about eyesight," she wrote in one of her flyers. "It comes from experience. It comes from the heart, and my heart is filled with respect and love for this community and its kind and good people who deserve the best."
And that's what she provided, maintaining a perfect attendance record for council meetings in 2004, taking her laptop computer with her to help follow documents that were being debated. "It was the highlight of her life and her career" to be given the mandate to represent the people of Cornwall at city council said Mr. POIRIER. " She did more than most people, who are strong and healthy, and you'd never hear her complain about anything -- not the weather, not her political opponents."
She continued to support her constituents until she collapsed in late March and was taken unconscious to an Ottawa hospital.
Huguette BURROUGHS was born July 16, 1949, in L'Original, Ontario She died on March 31 of complications from diabetes. She was 55. She is survived by her older brother, Charles, and his family and her younger brother, Yvan.
