William ARCHER, Lawyer And Politician: 1919-2005
Toronto alderman was 'subtle, intricate -- one might even say devious -- but clever.' He failed to become mayor yet won respect as a dogged public servant who always did his homework
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, April 15, 2005, Page S7
Toronto -- While the rest of the country has to reach for a thesaurus to find the words for how much it hates Toronto, William ARCHER was a rare breed: a man deliriously in love with the city.
Toronto was his town, every nook and cranny of it. An unabashed policy wonk, his encyclopedic knowledge of arcane bylaws, municipal regulations and rules of procedure came in handy in his years as a Toronto alderman, controller and mayoral candidate -- especially when he peppered his fellow councillors with pointed questions.
He saw himself as "one who has kept an eye on things, one who has raised questions," as he related to this newspaper in 1974. "The fact that I might raise questions has had an effect on people."
At times, it was "hard to see what effect that has, apart from irritation," wrote one city hall reporter of the day. "Much time is taken up with items he has raised."
The word "gadfly" came up now and then in relation to Mr. ARCHER, but it's one former Toronto mayor David CROMBIE dismisses.
"He was much too serious to be a gadfly," recalled Mr. CROMBIE, now president and Chief Executive Officer of the Canadian Urban Institute. "He provided very solid advice. We used to call him 'the grey eminence.' He was very serious about his politics."
And maybe even a little mischievous. At a 1974 council meeting, with Mr. CROMBIE absent, Mr. ARCHER called for a number of roll-call votes for reasons no one could quite understand. Then, the tactic became clear: He was racking up Mr. CROMBIE's absentee record, which, at the time, stood at about 17 per cent.
"Subtle, intricate -- one might even say devious -- but clever," pronounced The Globe and Mail.
A Toronto alderman from 1958 to 1974, with the exception of three years from 1966 to 1969, Mr. ARCHER was remembered by colleagues as dogged, almost obsessive about digesting the mass of the dry arcana city politicians confront every day.
"He was one of the few who did an enormous amount of homework," recalled Mr. CROMBIE, who was elected alderman in 1969 and was Toronto's mayor from 1972 to 1978. "There were a lot of people who would show up to meetings having read the executive summary or sort of skimmed [reports]. But Bill was very thorough -- a detail man -- one of the few who actually read the by-laws."
Mr. ARCHER's wife of 47 years, Gwen, is more blunt: "He had a mind like a rat trap. He could listen to two radios, the television and read the paper at the same time. He was so honest, it was sickening. And he'd talk to a fence post if it would talk back."
Even so, one colleague, alderman Karl JAFFARY, described Mr. ARCHER as "good at government but not at politics." Mr. CROMBIE once introduced Mr. ARCHER as "perhaps not the best politician, but by far one of the best and most devoted public servants this city has ever seen."
Born in Hamilton into a family of Anglican priests, Mr. ARCHER worked in Toronto as an office boy while still a teenager, and later as a junior with the Imperial Bank of Canada. During the Second World War, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve, and served in the Atlantic and Pacific. He left the service with the rank of lieutenant-commander and never lost his love of the water, sailing seven-metre Star sailboats for years and enjoying a life membership in the Royal Canadian Yacht Club.
He attended McGill University in Montreal and Osgoode Hall law school in Toronto, excelling at both in debating, and established a Bay Street law practice before the political bug bit.
In 1958, he was elected to Toronto city council and to Metropolitan Toronto council, and served as Toronto's controller from 1963 to 1966, the year he made a run for mayor. After a 12-week campaign, he polled a respectable 41,000 votes, but lost to fellow controller William DENNISON, who proved a careful and quiet mayor. Some blamed Mr. ARCHER for causing the defeat of the more flamboyant incumbent mayor, Phil GIVENS, and as Mr. ARCHER told his supporters on election night, "We shook the city up quite a bit."
As former Toronto mayor, recent Senate appointee Art EGGLETON, remembers the '66 campaign, where Mr. ARCHER's slogan was " ARCHER listens, learns... leads."
"He followed it, though he didn't always go the conventional way," Mr. EGGLETON recalled. "Not everyone agreed with him, but he was man of his convictions."
Mr. ARCHER returned to his law practice after his defeat but surfaced in 1969 with three headline-grabbing feats: In May, he spent a weekend as a derelict in Toronto's Cabbagetown neighbourhood, living on handouts and sleeping in a flop house -- all designed, he said, to gauge the city's services to the destitute. "It was the most lonely and exhausting weekend of my life," he told reporters.
In July, he drove a taxi for a week. "Well, see, I'm doing it to learn more about my community," he explained as he handed out a six-page transcript of his recorded thoughts and impressions. "And let me tell you, it's the loneliest job in the world. I mean it." His tips went to the Brothers of the Good Shepherd, who put him up during his homeless weekend.
In August of that year, he walked the length of Toronto's waterfront to get to know the harbour.
To anyone cynical enough to suggest these were publicity stunts, Mr. ARCHER had an answer: Honni soit qui mal y pense (roughly, evil to him who thinks evil). Whatever it was, it worked, and in the 1969 elections, Mr. ARCHER was back on council. "His politics were old-fashioned progressive conservative, and I mean that as a complement, a type that's almost lost now," says Mr. CROMBIE, whose term on council overlapped with Mr. ARCHER's until 1972. "He was progressive on social issues and pretty strict on economic and financial issues. He was a man of principles -- his own."
In all, Mr. ARCHER represented three midtown and downtown wards, and served on a slew of influential committees and boards, including works, transportation and planning. He fought for better pensions for municipal employees, improvements to welfare and was chiefly responsible for building the city's new fire boat. He also co-ordinated the Yonge Street mall, a popular pedestrian walkway closed to traffic that lasted for a few years in the early 1970s.
He clashed with council on two major issues: a 45-foot height bylaw and the decision not to have separate elections for Metro and the city. He called the latter "the greatest tragedy of this council."
Mr. ARCHER lost to a left-wing candidate in the 1974 election but the next year, he was appointed commissioner of a provincial review of the Niagara region, followed by many years on the Toronto Historical Board. In 1997, he received the Toronto Award of Merit.
His fight against the status quo did not wane. In 1986, a task force on which Mr. ARCHER served suggested more than a dozen changes to the municipal voting process, including holding elections on a Sunday in October, with separate election days for mayor, council and school trustees.
Mr. ARCHER once said that voters make a few mistakes, but not as many as politicians. "I only know I needed to do what I considered the right thing," he said, "whether I stood alone or not."
William Lee ARCHER was born in Hamilton on September 25, 1919, and died in Toronto of heart failure on March 6. He was 85. He is survived by his wife, Gwendolyn (née BAMFORD,) and a daughter, Janet. A service will be held at a later date.
