STARR, Michael 2000 -- Died This Day
Politician born on November 14, 1910, in Copper Cliff, near Sudbury, Ontario
The son of Ukrainian immigrants, he attended school in Montreal and Oshawa and, in 1928, found a job as a clerk and soon developed an interest in politics. He first ran for office in 1937 and was finally elected as an alderman in 1944. Five years later, he became mayor of Oshawa, the same year that then-prime minister Louis SSAINTURENT visited the city and went away impressed by the mayor's intense popularity. On tours of the city, children virtually ignored the head of government, running beside the car and calling, "Hiya Mike." The Liberal Party tried to interest him in running in a federal election, but he was a committed Tory. In 1952, he was elected member of Parliament for Oshawa and went on to serve as labour minister under John DIEFENBAKER in 1957. He remained in the job until the Conservatives were defeated in 1963. A popular politician with a reputation for fairness, he was the first federal cabinet minister of Ukrainian descent. In 1957, he was named Ukrainian of the Year for North America and, in 1958, when he was invited to Italy by its government, he had an audience with Pope Pius Twelfth. In 1968, he lost his seat to Ed BROADBENT, and was made a judge of the Citizenship Court for York and Barrie. He was later appointed to a variety of Ontario and federal task forces.

John GILBERT, Lawyer And Politician: (1921-2006)
Brought up in a poor, working-class family in Toronto, he entered law and politics to try and make the world a better place. 'There wasn't a tinge of self-righteousness about him'
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Having vowed when he started practising law that each year any money he earned over $5,000 he would give away, John GILBERT lived up to a deeply held belief that he should help society's less fortunate. This belief led him to enter politics as a federal candidate for the New Democratic Party in 1963, and later helped him during 15 years as a judge in Ontario.
Mr. GILBERT, known to Friends as Jack, lost his first run at politics in 1963. Two years later, his luck turned: He won a seat in the riding of Riverdale (now called Broadview-Greenwood), which had been Conservative since 1867. After his win, he told reporters that he and his wife, Nora, had tirelessly knocked on the doors of all the riding's 15,000 homes.
"As soon as we began to talk to the people and found out how they were thinking, we knew we would win," Mr. GILBERT said at the time.
He attributed a large part of his good reputation in his riding to his work at Woodgreen Community Centre. Each week, he devoted a day to the legal problems of Broadview residents, work that he said gave him a chance to see many of the problems his constituents had. He went on to serve the community for 13 years as an member of Parliament. During that time, he was a caucus member under New Democratic Party leaders Tommy Douglas and Ed BROADBENT.
"He was one of the members of Parliament that I most admired in my life," said Mr. BROADBENT, who for many years held the riding of Oshawa-Whitby. Describing Mr. GILBERT as a gentle individual capable of unbelievable kindness, Mr. BROADBENT said Jack GILBERT had so few aggressive bones in his body that he wouldn't fight, like many of his fellow members of Parliament, to get into Question Period.
"There wasn't a tinge of self-righteousness about him," Mr. BROADBENT said. While he was a good constituents' member of Parliament, Mr. GILBERT didn't focus on his riding to the expense of national issues. "He was always good in caucus. He knew the national issues and he made his views known."
In 1969, Mr. GILBERT sharply criticized the government after the findings of a five-month housing inquiry were released. Calling the inquiry "a colossal fraud on the Canadian public," Mr. GILBERT said it had wasted time finding out what was already known. He said the report showed no concern for low-income people. He went on to say that it was strange that Canada could build enough cars, television sets and radios for its people but not enough houses to fulfill a basic right to decent accommodation. During his time as an member of Parliament, Mr. GILBERT also spent time at the United Nations with Pierre Trudeau, whom he greatly admired. Among the stories he liked to tell about his years in Ottawa was the time he and his wife, along with another member of Parliament and his wife, were heading to a black-tie affair where the Queen was the guest of honour. On their way, their old car broke down and they were forced to hitchhike. When a farmer stopped in his pickup to give them a ride, the two women sat in the front while John and the other member of Parliament hopped in the back, sitting atop a bale of hay.
Raised in Toronto, Jack GILBERT was the youngest of five children whose parents had left Ireland as poor Protestants and immigrated to Canada. At first, life was tough. With little money, John and his brothers gathered pieces of coal that had fallen off horse-drawn coal wagons to take home and heat their house. During the Depression, the family eventually lost their home to a mortgage foreclosure.
As a young boy, he sold papers in the heart of Toronto at Yonge and Bloor streets, for two cents each. Later in life, he loved to show his children how -- all in one motion -- he could still take a newspaper, slap it against his leg, fold it twice, slip it under the buyer's arm and hold out his hand for payment.
To help support his family, he left school early. After a couple of years working in a paper-box factory, he met and married his true love, Nora LAW, and she put him through university by working as a secretary at a car dealership. After learning they couldn't have children, they adopted three in succession.
When Mr. GILBERT graduated from law school, he went to work for a large firm but soon left because he felt they charged clients too much. He set up a private practice to represent the less fortunate and did a lot of pro bono work for the Salvation Army.
After 13 years in federal politics, Mr. GILBERT accepted an appointment in 1978 as a judge to the District Court of Ontario (now the Superior Court of Justice), where he remained until his retirement in 1993. After receiving the appointment, he called Bob Rae, who is now running for the leadership of the federal Liberal Party, and asked him if he would take over his seat. Mr. Rae is reported to have asked if his health was forcing him to leave.
"Yes," Mr. GILBERT replied. "I'm very healthy and I want to stay that way." Mr. Rae accepted the offer and was elected to the House of Commons in a 1978 by-election, defeating Conservative candidate Tom Clifford. Interestingly, Jack Layton, the current New Democratic Party leader, represents the same riding.
Vacations in the GILBERT household were seen as opportunities to help others. Some Christmas vacations in the 1960s were spent at an interracial commune in Americus, Georgia. Others were spent in Jamaica lending a hand to a friend who had started a residential school for deaf children.
"He believed in the human spirit," said his son Peter GILBERT, who described his father as a quietly religious person who felt God's hand was in everything he had been given.
In a 1971 letter to the editor of The Globe and Mail, Ted SUGGITT of Lindsay, Ontario, wrote about a memorable hitchhiking experience. While living in a northern cabin with his family, Mr. SUGGITT was hitchhiking back to the city when a man, his wife and their children stopped to pick him up.
"It was a wet, fall day, but the climate inside the car was cheerful and relaxed," Mr. SUGGITT wrote. "As our conversation touched on many subjects, I found myself enjoying the company of this man and his family. He was quite concerned about my problems of that day, which had to do with housing and working away from home."
After dropping him off in the city, Mr. GILBERT gave him his card and told him to call if he ever needed anything. Some time later, the hitchhiker saw Mr. GILBERT's picture in the paper and discovered he was a candidate in an upcoming election. "Although he was of a political party not of my choice, I was of the opinion Parliament would be a better place with a man of this calibre," Mr. SUGGITT wrote. "I have not been disappointed."
As a judge, Mr. GILBERT showed the same decency and fairness that he had in politics. In a 1985 case involving a man charged with mischief, Mr. GILBERT ordered a Toronto jury to acquit the man after determining that he had been pressured by police to give a statement. After hearing the statement, Mr. GILBERT said: "You could probably call 50 witnesses: and I wouldn't be persuaded the statement was voluntary."
There was no pretension about John GILBERT, said his friend, Ted MATLOW, a fellow judge. "Every serious legal discussion would end with a review of the Toronto Blue Jays team."
While he enjoyed his work in politics and law, Mr. GILBERT's family came first. After his wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, he cared for her for the next 10 years. Last fall, the couple celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. She died in June; six weeks later, Mr. GILBERT went into hospital. In caring for his wife, he had neglected his own health.
John GILBERT was born in Toronto on September 12, 1921.
He died in Toronto on August 7, 2006, after suffering from a blood condition and prostate cancer.
He was 84. He leaves his children, John, Gwen and Peter; several grandchildren and one great grandchild. He also leaves his sister, Kathleen, and brother, Arthur.

PITHER, William Garth (March 6, 1921-September 8, 2006)
A pioneer in the Cable television industry, Garth passed away peacefully on September 8, 2006 in Vancouver. Predeceased by his adoring wife Dorothy, he is survived by sons Ron, Barry, and Gordon; grand_sons Colin and Lane; daughter-in-law Deborah BROADLEY; sister Beth (Charles;) nephew Gerry EDWARDS, and nieces Linda MASON, Sharon FARNETTI, and Heather PICCO. Garth's 'family' was bigger than most, as his reach, influence, and genuine interest always extended in the most caring of ways beyond the conventional his sense of community and contribution were hallmarks of his life. Garth's watchwords were 'Perseverance', 'Why not?', and 'Never dismiss anyone or anything'. Born in Winnipeg and growing up in Saskatchewan and Vancouver, Garth began an electrical apprenticeship at RCA in Toronto during 1938. In 1940 he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force and was seconded to the Royal Air Force where his technical brilliance was applied to the then secret U.K.-based radar initiative. Returning to Canada in 1945 he rejoined RCA and married Dorothy LOVELL in 1946. A chance television repair job for Syd WELSH lead to a three way partnership with Bud SHEPARD in the early fifties pioneering Cable television in Canada. His technical knowledge and skills were employed in wiring the mountain communities of British Columbia, including antenna sites surveyed on foot, by packhorse, boat, jeep, helicopter, and snowmobile. By the 1960s, this visionary trio, and others too many to mention, brought Cable television to the major urban centres of Canada and around the world including the U.S.A., Ireland, and the United Kingdom, garnering the respect of governments and business partners such as CBS. In 1971 the Welsh companies formed Premier Cablevision Limited which was eventually purchased by Rogers Cable of Toronto. Garth's 'retirement' in 1981 was hardly ever that(!) as he offered his skills, enthusiasm, and insight to support Rick Hansen's dream to wheel around the world and such organizations as the British Columbia and Canadian Paraplegic Associations, Vancouver Rotary and finally the Shaughnessy Stroke Recovery Club. Golf both in Vancouver and Palm Springs was always in the 'fore'. Always busy, always involved, always offering, always there… Garth was always 'doing something' and led by example to create and fix things rather than just offer words. A private Celebration of Garth's life will be held amongst his dear family and Friends. The family thanks the volunteers and members of the Shaughnessy Stroke Recovery Club and other stroke support services in Vancouver for enabling Garth to maintain his independence since his wn stroke in 1996. Moreover, we give honourable mention to the staff at Vancouver General Hospital, University of British Columbia Health Sciences and Providence Health Care, in particular staff at the Brock Fahrni facility for the wonderful care and attention Garth received over the past year. In lieu of flowers, donations should be made to one of Garth's proudest and greatest achievements, the British Columbia Paraplegic Foundation (780…S.W. Marine Drive, Vancouver, British Columbia V6P 5Y7) of which he was a founding visionary over 30 years ago.

HODGSON, Thomas Sherlock
Passed away peacefully on February 27, 2006 after a long battle with Alzheimer's Disease. Tom was born in Toronto on June 5, 1924 and grew up on Centre Island. In 1943, after graduating from the art program at Central Technical high school, Tom enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force and was trained as a pilot and gunner. He produced many pieces depicting army life which were later donated to the War Art Museum. Discharged in 1945, he enrolled in the Ontario College of Art. As a founding member of the Painters Eleven in the 1950's, Tom was a pioneer of abstract art in Canada. Painters Eleven is credited with having introduced Abstract Expressionism to Canada. Tom had abrilliant career in commercial art advertising, and taught art at various institutions. From 1968 to 1973 he taught at the Ontario College of Art during what is often referred to as its most creative period… his philosophies about creativity influenced many of his students. Between 1952 and 1989, there were more than 20 exhibitions of his work in Canada and throughout the world. His works are on display in various Canadian galleries including the Robert McLaughlin Gallery, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Canadian War Museum, Glenbow Museum, the Galérie d'arts contemporains de Montréal, and the National Gallery of Canada. Tom was also a renowned athlete. He had a highly esteemed career as one of Canada's premier competitive canoe athletes, dominating canoe tandem racing in Canada for more than a decade. He competed over more than 50 years; he won his first Canadian title in 1941 and, 44 years later, raced in the First World Masters Canoe Championships. He won over 20 Canadian Championships and represented Canada at two Olympic games: Helsinki in 1952 and Melbourne in 1956. Tom leaves behind his first wife, Wilma, and five children: Mark, Rand, Lise, Kara and Timothy; and Jeannie BROADWAY, the mother of his fifth child Timothy; ten grandchildren; and his sister Jane. He was predeceased by his second wife Catherine GOOD who was dedicated to him during the difficult years when he was suffering from Alzheimer's. To celebrate his life, a reception will be held at the Balmy Beach Canoe Club, 10 Ashbridges Bay Park Rd. on Tuesday, March 7 at 1 p.m.

Tom HODGSON, 81: Passion for art, life
Abstract painter helped revitalize Canadian art
Kid from islands paddled a canoe like few others
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
People always talk about the parties. That's what they remember about Tom HODGSON's life. They happened wherever he lived or in whatever studio he worked -- be it the Pit, as it was called, at King and Church Sts., the house on Shaw Street, where he built a swimming pool in the kitchen, or the storefront on Queen St. W. opposite the mental hospital.
Cold cuts infamously served on the reclining body of a nude woman adorning the buffet table, body-painting women's bare breasts, art student orgies, rich and powerful art patrons swinging on the rope from his studio ceiling.
HODGSON's sons used to drop by to meet girls because there were always women around their dad -- if not the models he hired to pose nude for life drawing classes, then the dewy-eyed students he taught at the Ontario College of Art during the '70s, when mores were exploding in the name of creativity, the muse and the worship of the artist.
You can get away with it when you're also one of Canada's greatest painters, a founder of the audacious Painters Eleven -- the gang of abstract artists who broke the stranglehold of the Group of Seven and revolutionized the Canadian art world, at the same time as you're an Olympic athlete, marathoner, dirt-bike champ and master paddler winning dozens of national championships.
"Tom was a gifted person. Some people are just touched a certain way, but he was very easy about it, not full of himself," said Christopher CUTTS, HODGSON's art dealer.
In 1987, when CUTTS was an upstart on the art scene, a friend arranged a meeting with the artist known as a superb colourist, as well as for his style of action painting -- arm's-length hurling, scraping, pouring oil paints on horizontal canvases on a table surface held in place by an elaborate system of blocks and tackle.
"He had a natural way of dancing on the canvas. He could make it work," CUTTS said.
HODGSON's last solo show was at Cutts's gallery in 1992, the year the artist was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. This year, five days after HODGSON died from the disease -- at 81 on February 27 CUTTS opened a major group show of abstract painters. HODGSON's piece in the show was priced at $30,000.
HODGSON and his kid sister grew up in a 35-room house on Centre Island that their family rented out to tenants. Their father was an insurance broker, a convivial alcoholic who threw parties at their home, known throughout the island as the Hodgson House of Nonsense, according to Jane HODGSON.
"The kids all hung out at the clubhouse on the lagoon," she recalled. "All of us paddled."
But HODGSON was just that much more intense about the sport and much more skilled. When he was 12, it also was clear he was also a talented artist. He began the balancing act between art and athletics that he would maintain for decades.
He trained hard, dodging the ice in Toronto's harbour, winning more than 20 Canadian solo championships. With another islander, Art JOHNSON, and later Bill STEPHENSON, he finished eighth in the tandem at the Helsinki Olympics in 1952 and in ninth place four years later in Melbourne, Australia.
HODGSON married Wilma STEIN, an island girl, and they moved into a house on Centre Island on a lot that extended to the lagoon, where he built a north-facing studio on stilts.
When the property of Centre Island's residents was expropriated in the late '50s, HODGSON moved to the city, becoming very successful in advertising at the same time as he was making a name for himself in the art world with Painters Eleven.
But he walked away from advertising after assessing that he had enough money either to buy a sports car or support himself as an artist for two years. When his marriage ended in 1968, his wife had to get a job to support their four kids. "His life was more important than anybody else and that was hard," said daughter Lise SNAJDR. "He wasn't a good father, but he was a good person in many ways."
"He was not the kind of dad who hugged or kissed you or told you he loved you," said Tim BROADWAY, HODGSON's fifth child, born to Jeannie BROADWAY, an artist. They never married.
Painters Eleven officially disbanded in 1959. By the 1960s and early '70s, HODGSON was a famous artist, as well as a popular teacher at the Ontario College of Art. A nudist, he hosted many parties around the indoor pool at his Shaw St. home. He never had more than three beers, but others did.
"They were orgies," said Neil COCHRANE, an assistant art director at the Toronto Star who was studying at the college then. "That's what happens when you get naked art students, water and drink."
HODGSON met his second wife, Cathy GOOD, when she was his student. She was 19, he 46. He and GOOD moved to a horse farm near Hastings, Ontario, where he built a pond and paddled until 1996, when he went over a dam on the Trent River. By then, Alzheimer's had robbed him of the ability to talk in full sentences or complete a painting.
HODGSON then moved into a care facility and Good to an apartment in Warkworth. He could neither walk nor talk. GOOD, who was devoted to him, visited him three times a day, until her unexpected death last year of an embolism.
HODGSON was saluted by Friends and family at the Balmy Beach Club last month. At one point, one of his Friends shouted, "Here's to Tom," then took off all his clothes (except for his socks) and ran around the whole assembly, past HODGSON's trophies and his art, before sitting down and putting on his clothes.
"Dad would have loved it," SNAJDR said. "But I think he would have preferred it have been a beautiful young woman."
