Activist remembered as leader
By John BARBER, Page A16
Federal New Democratic Party Leader Jack Layton and Mayor David Miller took time yesterday to offer glowing eulogies for activist and politician Allan SPARROW, who died of cancer Wednesday in London, Ontario, at 63.
Mr. Layton praised Mr. SPARROW as "a good friend, mentor and leader" who "inspired a generation of reform-minded progressives with ahead-of-his-time thinking on environment issues."
To Mr. Miller, Mr. SPARROW was the unbidden angel who organized a successful grassroots movement to halt construction of a bridge to the island airport - the defining issue of the election that brought him to power in 2003.
"Allan SPARROW was a tireless crusader who believed passionately in everything he did," the mayor said, describing his career as "an inspiration to all those who believe in the potential of Toronto."
As a downtown alderman in the 1970s, Mr. SPARROW was a driving force of the reform council led by former mayor David Crombie. But just as often he was far ahead of the pack, championing gay rights and police accountability at a time when most considered the mere mention of such issues to be an act of political suicide.
Despite his popularity, Mr. SPARROW left politics in 1980 to let George HYSLOP, Toronto's first gay candidate for council, run in his place.
He returned to the business world as a consultant specializing in information technology, but threw himself into public life once again after he and his wife, Susan, moved to the Toronto Islands and found themselves living below the flight path of a massively expanded airport.
Having stopped the bridge but not the airport, the SPARROWs moved to Stratford, Ontario, last year.
