James JEROME, Politician and Judge: (1933-2005)
He was king of the hill as Speaker of the House of Commons but less successful as a federal judge. Appointed in a blip of election-day patronage, he encountered unaccustomed criticism
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, August 31, 2005, Page S9
James JEROME was a popular Speaker of the House of Commons who seemingly could do no wrong until he became a federal judge.
Mr. JEROME was the first Speaker chosen from an opposition party, he introduced television coverage of the Commons and he wielded a fair but firm hand during Question Period. Then, in an unusual spasm of election-day patronage, he was made associate chief justice of the Federal Court of Canada, where he came under unfamiliar attack. He stepped down in March of 1998 after his slow handling of war-crimes cases.
James JEROME spent his early years in Kingston, Ontario, where his father was a construction engineer. Later, the family moved to Toronto, where James went to high school, the University of Toronto and Osgoode Hall Law School.
After law school, Mr. JEROME moved to Sudbury, Ontario His first step into politics was winning a seat on city council. He then ran for the Liberals in a by-election in May of 1967 and lost but won in the 1968 general election, the year of Trudeaumania. He was re-elected in 1972, 1974 and 1979. Though the Liberals lost that election, he retained his seat with a majority of 12,000 votes.
Along the way, he had taught himself French to advance his political career and it probably helped land what some call the best job in the House of Commons. The post of Speaker comes with a staff of 3,000 and includes a rent-free, country estate called Kingsmere and a social life as glittering as that of the Governor-General.
The Commons first elected Mr. JEROME the Speaker in September of 1974 after the Liberals had won a majority government. Yet it wasn't a unanimous vote for the new Speaker. In an interesting footnote, Robert STANFIELD, leader of the opposition, refused to second his nomination.
Mr. JEROME remained in power through the long Trudeau Parliament. His most lasting change to the House of Commons was bringing in television coverage in 1978, which he said led to "a far higher quality of journalism in reporting the proceedings of the Commons." His ground rules for broadcasters were eventually copied by other parliaments, including the British House of Commons.
As Speaker, he managed to steer clear of problems. He was involved in only a few major battles while ruling as arbiter of taste and as master of debates in the Commons. He did, however, get into a fierce war of words with The Globe and Mail when the Speaker sided with a 1976 vote by the parliamentary press gallery to bar Canadian Press managers who were working as reporters during a strike. Parliamentarians said The Globe had committed a "gross libel" against the Speaker. The newspaper's view, as expressed in two editorials, was that the Speaker shouldn't be allowed to decide who can or cannot sit in the press gallery.
In October of 1979, during the short-lived Tory government of Joe CLARK, Mr. JEROME refused to recognize Warren ALLMAND after the former Liberal cabinet minister showed up in the House wearing a turtleneck sweater under a tweed jacket. Mr. ALLMAND wasn't happy, but before he get to his feet to complain, he first had to rush out and borrow a tie.
"Men in this House should have the same freedom of dress as women," Mr. ALLMAND eventually responded, pointing out that cabinet minister Flora McDONALD was not wearing a tie. The Speaker was not moved and cries of "Wear a dress, Warren," arose from the government side.
Mr. JEROME's election as Speaker during a Conservative government had been a minor triumph. In June of 1979, the Tories won a minority government and, in a surprise move, prime minister Joe CLARK allowed Mr. JEROME to remain in the Speaker's chair.
It was the first time in Commons history that a Speaker had been chosen from an Opposition party, a testament to the high esteem in which Mr. JEROME was held on all sides of the House and a recognition by the Tories of the benefits of reducing potential Opposition votes by one in a minority situation.
As it turned out, the arrangement did not last. The Clark government was defeated in a no-confidence vote that December.
A general election was called for February 18, 1980, and Mr. JEROME chose not to run. Instead, as Canadians went to the polls, Mr. CLARK named him associate chief justice of the Federal Court of Canada. Since the Conservatives were, in theory, still in power, they likely made the appointment at the request of the Liberals. It was a most unusual development, as outgoing prime ministers seldom make appointments on election day. In this case, it seemed all parties had agreed to making a judicial appointment for the sake of the retiring Speaker.
His new job, however, was not so cozy. As a judge, he soon found his decisions open to criticism. His biggest troubles arose during his last years as a Federal Court judge. Two incidents exposed the question of whether former senior politicians and government officials should be named to the bench.
In 1996, the chief justice of the Federal Court, Julius ISAAC, had a dinner meeting with a senior official of the department of justice who complained that Mr. Justice James JEROME was taking too long in the deportation hearings against three alleged Nazi war criminals.
The chief justice then intervened privately with Judge JEROME. Later, the Supreme Court ruled that Judge JEROME and another judge could not have any further connections with the case. Around the same time, Judge JEROME became involved in another controversy, related in part to the war-crimes case.
In making a comment about a case involving an aboriginal band, Judge JEROME was reported to have said he would never put a native judge on a native case and would never put a Jewish judge on a war-crimes case. This remark caused outrage from Jewish and aboriginal leaders, and a rebuke by the then-justice minister, Anne McLELLAN.
Both incidents led to a reform of how judges were named by the federal cabinet. For a time, at least 10 judges in the federal court's trial and appeal divisions had been former federal members of Parliament or government employees -- including Judge ISAAC, who was a former employee of the Department of Justice.
The appointments had been made by the Liberals during their long run in power from the 1960s to the early 1980s. On his last full day as prime minister in 1984, Pierre TRUDEAU appointed two cabinet members to the court. Two weeks later, his successor John TURNER appointed another former cabinet minister. The practice had made the court the object of criticism over its independence from the government.
In 1998, changes were finally made to the way judges are named.
"Now, it would appear to be impossible to name a cabinet minister as a judge," said Ian BUSHNELL, a retired law professor from the University of Windsor who wrote the history of both the Supreme Court and the Federal Court. "He [Mr. JEROME] was caught up in the patronage binge of the Trudeau/Turner era. No one who was appointed was a dud or a failure. As a judge, Mr. JEROME was certainly adequate."
Even so, it was as Speaker that he had shone. After his retirement from the Commons, Mr. JEROME wrote a memoir titled Mr. Speaker. In a review of the book, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reporter Larry ZOLF recalled Mr. JEROME's years in the House: "Few parliamentarians have ever been as popular with members of Parliament, reporters or constituents as the Toronto Irish Liberal member from the mining constituency of Sudbury.... JEROME's sensibilities are certainly missed in the carnival atmosphere into which the House, alas, has lately degenerated."
In his private life, Mr. JEROME was very much the family man. After he moved to the Speaker's house north of Ottawa, he bought a family cottage on Ramsey Lake near Sudbury. Mr. JEROME was an accomplished piano player and loved card games, especially bridge and gin. He was a keen golfer and he and his family skied at Camp Fortune near Ottawa.
James Alexander JEROME was born on March 4, 1933. He died in Ottawa on August 21 of Huntington's disease. He is survived by his wife Barry Karen and his children, Mary-Lou, Paul, Jim and Megan. Another son, Joseph, died in an accident in 1986.

Gerald GLADSTONE, Artist: 1929-2005
Determined and prolific sculptor who won several major commissions at Expo 67 shot as brightly as a comet through the Canadian art scene and then gradually burned out, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Wednesday, March 9, 2005 - Page S9
His name is only vaguely familiar now, but Gerald GLADSTONE, a self-taught artist and musician, was a huge force in Canadian art in the 1950s and 1960s. Short, stocky with curly hair and a fiery personality, he had a spiritual conception of the cosmos and our place within it, a vision which he interpreted in monumental yet dynamic welded steel sculptures.
Born in Toronto in 1929, the year of the stock-market crash that precipitated the Depression, he was the sixth of nine children of Ralph and Dora GLADSTONE. A dynamic, feisty boy, he disliked the discipline and structure of school. His younger brother Joseph says his teachers let him do all the class art projects and simply passed him in other subjects year after year, until he got fed up and quit at the end of Grade 8 and went to work.
In those days, he was as much a musician as he was an artist. He taught himself to play the clarinet and formed a jazz band. He was also a sharp dancer and loved to go jitterbugging with his sister Rose. "He was very pugnacious, very proud of being Jewish and very up front about it and it often caused him difficulties in his social life," remembered his brother David.
He married artist Sheila McCUSKER when he was in his very early 20s. Allycia, the eldest of the couple's six children was born in September, 1953. Mr. GLADSTONE built an easel on a hinge on the wall over her crib so that he could paint and draw after he had come home from work and she was sleeping. By his own count, he had close to 30 jobs in 14 years, eventually working at Rapid Grip as a commercial artist and attaining the position of art director with McLaren Advertising before he quit to devote himself to art.
Mr. GLADSTONE built a shack out the back of their house in the Beach area of Toronto, "breaking every fire law under the sun," according to his brother Joseph and making sculptures that one observer described as "a blowtorch blending of gramophone speakers, wheel rims and wire waste baskets." He would work furiously and when he heard an inspector was coming, he would clean up like mad, his brother said.
He was one of the group of artists exhibited by Av ISAACS in the 1950s that included Michael Snow, Gordon Rayner, Graham Coughtry and Tony Urquhart. Mr. Rayner remembers "Gerry playing a mean Dixieland clarinet" at parties. His work did two things at once, said Mr. Urquhart. "It was expressionistic and at the same time it was coming to grips with technology. Some of the ones I particularly liked, partly because I hadn't a clue how he would do them, were these big sculptures submerged in big blocks of lucite."
"To pick up a welding torch and use it in the service of sculpture was an avant-garde thing to do" in those early struggling days when "people were still bashing at stone," observed critic Gary Michael Dault. Mr. GLADSTONE's sculptures, with their welded steel rods and whirling discs, looked adventurously modernist in the all-too-provincial Toronto of the 1950s.
Curator Dennis Reid says Mr. GLADSTONE's cosmic vision was a great strength. The actual sculptures -- the cones and rods -- read on both a galactic level and on a microscopic one, too, he says. "That is where their energy lies and I think it hit a chord in the late '50s and early '60s. It took right off."
In 1959, he received his first Canada Council grant and the family, which now numbered several children, packed up and went to London, where he studied at the Royal College of Art. There, he met the British sculptor Henry Moore and visited him at his studio. Influenced by Mr. Moore, he began experimenting with figurative work.
Shortly after returning from England, Mr. GLADSTONE became involved in Toronto '61, a collective show organized by his younger brothers Joseph and David. Joseph, who is now a retired elementary school principal, was heading out to Vancouver to teach. He and his brothers went around to all of their brother's artist Friends and collected three or four pieces of art from each of them on consignment. They boxed the works, shipped them to Vancouver, held a show and then shipped the work of a number of Vancouver artists back to Toronto.
After studying in New York on another Canada Council grant and achieving modest success through a couple of galleries, Mr. GLADSTONE moved back to Canada. He was part of the opening exhibition for The Isaacs Gallery when it moved to its new premises on Yonge Street in 1961, but he and the gallery soon parted company. "He was a ballsy guy -- feisty is the word," says dealer Av ISAACS, who represented Mr. GLADSTONE for about a decade.
Although he thinks Mr. GLADSTONE did some interesting work, he says he "was a very pushy guy and I just didn't need it."
He was the only artist to net three commissions for Expo 67 in Montreal. He created Uki, the 12-metre, fire-spewing mechanical dragon that haunted a lagoon for the Canadian government, a space column for the Engineer's Plaza and a towering fountain for the amusement park at La Ronde. His commissions amounted to about $250,000, but expenses gobbled up most of it, leaving him with about $35,000, some of which he plowed back into his work -- although he did allow himself the purchase of a black Steinway grand piano.
He was so hot in 1967 that he told the late journalist Blaik Kirby in The Globe that the price of his sculptures had doubled in the previous two years. "People say I'm so lucky, but they forget that for 20 years I invested more money than I made in my work," the artist said. "I believed I was an artist when no one else did, except a few close Friends."
Only three years later, he was penniless again, complaining that Canada didn't understand him and that the Canada Council was shunning him. Still, he had an exhibition of his plastic cubes (many of them borrowed from private collections), and his Downtown Nudes, a poetic calligraphy of weaving lines on raw canvas, as the opening exhibition at the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts in downtown Toronto.
From his home in Victoria, Mavor Moore, then general director of the centre, remembers choosing Mr. GLADSTONE because "he had worldwide dreams and the technical skills to realize them, and at the time my colleagues and I thought his works would give the launch an exciting cachet. But he managed to alienate many of his more nationalistic fellow Canadian artists, and the sole 1970 anecdote I recall is Harold Town's immortal summation of the exhibit: 'Gerry GLADSTONE is the only sculptor in the world who can weld shit.' "
And then, this artist who had shot as brightly as a comet through the Canadian art scene for a decade, burned out. He still had commissions, but he was no longer a force. Among them were the Three Graces, a fountain and bronze sculptures for the Ontario government buildings at Bay and Wellesley streets in Toronto, Female Landscape, a fountain and bronze sculpture for Place Ville Marie in Montreal, a fountain and precast concrete sculpture for a Martin Luther King memorial in California, and a fountain and sculpture in Canberra for the government of Australia. He made a six-metre sculpture called Universal Man to stand in front of the C.N. Tower, but it was damaged when the Sky Dome was built and found a new home in a parking lot at Yorkdale Mall in the north end of the city.
He had to hustle because he had only his art to support his wife and six children. But there were other factors. He moved from gallery to gallery, having arguments with artists and dealers and even the Canada Council. He also changed styles, moving away from his early constructivist welded sculptures to embrace painting and figurative work. In the process, he seemed to lose his vocabulary and his energy. Artist Gordon Rayner admired the early steel sculptures, but he thought his paintings were really like graphic sketches for sculptures and he didn't much fancy his figurative sculpture.
Dennis REID, chief curator at the Art Gallery of Ontario, thinks he didn't survive the change in art that happened in the 1970s. "We all talk about the death of painting, but it was also the death of any kind of figuration in sculpture, by and large for that period of time, and the rise of conceptual and performance art.
By the late 1970s, he had left his wife and begun a new relationship. With his new partner, Lorraine, he moved to Vancouver hoping to win commissions at Expo 86, and eventually returned to Ontario where they settled in Beaverton in the early 1990s. He continued to make art, although now he was working mainly with smaller pieces. The Art Gallery of Ontario gave him a small retrospective in late 2003, linking his current work with his early monumental sculptures and his plastic cubes. By then, he had been diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. Earlier this winter, his spleen became dangerously enlarged and he went into hospital for surgery. He died on Monday morning.
Gerald GLADSTONE was born on January 7, 1929. He died of leukemia on March 7. He was 76. He is survived by his second wife, Lorraine, six children from his first wife, and several brothers and a sister.
