Billie was born in Toronto, Ontario into the BOLTON family. Educated at Victoria College at the University of Toronto, she graduated in Social Work and devoted her life to caring for the interests of others. With a keen voice, she taught singing as her first job. To the embarrassment of her children, Annabelle and Norman, she seemed to have the loudest voice in church! Half a century later, at age seventy-five, she started her second job in a retail store in Muskoka. Forty-seven years of her life were spent with her beloved husband, Fred, living in Oakville, Toronto and Gravenhurst. She offered unending support to his career of forty-four years at The Toronto Star with many a dinner conversation focusing on the business of the day. Although he predeceased her in May of 1983, she never stopped loving him. Billie was often referred to by others as a 'wonderful lady'. She lived an independent and dignified life, always giving of herself to those around her. Over the years she delighted in bringing people together for purposeful discussion and fun. She brightened the day for Friends and relatives when times were tough. Even those who met her only once were struck by her charm, spirit, lively ideas and her love of life. For her five grandchildren, Jennifer and Katherine EAST and Brett, Kai and Tyler HOTSON, Gram was a very special person with a probing interest in their studies, travels, Friends and career paths. We have all been touched by her life, her love and her compassion. May we live by her example.

EASTER, Kenneth
In loving memory of Kenneth EASTER, a loving husband, father and grandfather, who passed away one year ago today.
God saw you getting tired, when a cure was not to be,
So he closed his arms around you, and whispered come to me.
In tears we saw you sinking, we watched you fade,
Our hearts were all broken, you fought so hard to stay.
When we saw you sleeping, so peacefully and free from pain.
We could not wish you back, to suffer that again.
So keep your arms around him Lord, and give him special care.
Make up for all he suffered, that seemed to us unfair.
So many times we've needed you, so many times we've cried.
If Love could have saved you, you never would have died.
Always loved and forever remembered, Your wife Rita, Your Children and Grandchildren.

Leonard GERTLER, Urban Planner (1923-2005)
University of Waterloo teacher was a founding father of town planning in Canada, writes Sandra MARTIN. His environment-first strategy 'made a difference to the quality of our lives and our communities'
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, December 17, 2005, Page S11
A holistic and strategic thinker, Leonard (Len) GERTLER was one of the founding fathers of urban planning in this country. He became interested in cities as a researcher and scriptwriter for the National Film Board in the late 1940s and went on to write a landmark report on protecting Ontario's Niagara Escarpment and to serve as a policy adviser to Pierre Trudeau's Ministry of Urban Affairs. A pioneer in co-operative and sustainable development abroad, he involved his students, beginning in 1970, in projects in Indonesia, Jamaica, India, Japan and Uzbekistan.
Historically, planning in Canada was undertaken and taught by people trained in Britain or the United States. Prof. GERTLER, who worked as a planner in Edmonton, Toronto and the Saint John River Valley in New Brunswick before he became the founding director of the School of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Waterloo, brought a Canadian perspective to the classroom.
"Len was Canada's guru of environment-first planning for broad geographic regions. He wanted our cities to be cities [and to work for people's well-being] and he wanted the countryside -- the farmlands, woodlands and wetlands -- to stay countryside," said Linda PIM, a conservation policy analyst with Ontario Nature.
"He was able to connect the key elements of planning theory and practice in a way that resonated with me [and many other students] and stayed with me throughout my career," said David WITTY, who studied with Prof. GERTLER at U of W in the early 1970s and is now dean of architecture at the University of Manitoba. Prof. GERTLER "brought social, ecological, economic and physical components" to planning in a way "that demanded respect."
Mark SEASONS, who was a doctoral student in the mid 1980s and is now an associate professor of planning and associate dean at the U of W, described him as "a man of few but very carefully chosen words," with "a keen intellect and insights." He did not "suffer fools gladly," but "if you gained his respect, he became a loyal friend and life-long supporter."
Prof. GERTLER's passion for planning infected not only his students, but one of his own sons. "Len never cajoled or coaxed me," Meric GERTLER, now professor of geography and planning at the University of Toronto, said in a eulogy at his father's funeral. Instead, he felt an "inexorable pull" toward planning because his father's work was "so damned interesting." It made "a difference to the quality of our lives and our communities at a time when public interest in 'the environment' and all things 'urban' was enjoying its first real flowering in this country."
Leonard Oscar (Len) GERTLER was the youngest of three children of Carl Hiam GERTLER and his wife Gertrude (SLOVER). The GERTLERs and the SLOVERs had immigrated before the First World War from what was then Austro-Hungary, with the SLOVERs settling in Ottawa and the GERTLERs working on farms in an Irish settlement outside Montreal.
Gertrude and her brother had opened a store in the market in Ottawa and Hiam and his brothers started a furniture manufacturing company called Atlas Bedding in Montreal. Mr. GERTLER always hoped one of his sons would join in the family business, but it didn't work out that way.
His eldest son, Maynard GERTLER, a Roosevelt New Dealer, studied and taught economic history in the United States and Britain before returning to Canada and founding Harvest House, a Montreal publishing firm that specialized in translating the fiction of Québécois writers (such as Jacques Ferron, Anne Hébert and Yves Thériault) and in producing books on social and economic topics.
Len was seven years younger. Still, he was "my best friend from the time he was 12 years old," said Maynard GERTLER in a telephone conversation from his home in Montreal. Len was both artistic and athletic. He wrote plays, but he also played baseball and football, skied and trained as a long-distance swimmer.
Like his older brother, Len went to Queen's University to study economics and political science. In his third year, he became the founding editor of a publication called Public Affairs, soon renamed the Queen's Commentator. He emerged with an honour's degree in 1946 and an active interest in socio-economic and political issues.
During summers he found work (through a Montreal friend) with John GRIERSON at the National Film Board, which was then headquartered in Ottawa. After graduation, he joined the staff of the World in Action unit directed by Mr. GRIERSON's Disciple, Stuart LEGGE. He was researcher and scriptwriter for The Challenge of Housing and another film on the evolving National Capital Plan for Ottawa. His script was too outspoken for the National Capital Commission and he was banished from the project.
Dejected, he headed back to Montreal, where fate changed his future both romantically and professionally. In his parents' house, he met Anicka (Anita) BIRNBAUM, a Holocaust survivor from the tiny town of Svalava, Slovakia. In early teens she had been incarcerated in Auschwitz with the rest of her family. Anita and one sister were all that was left of their family when the Russians liberated the camp. She made her way to England, where she worked as a dental technician and used leftover bits of medical modelling clay to make sculptures.
Len's father, who was on the board of the Jewish Immigrant Aid Society, sponsored her to come to Canada. "She only weighed about 60 pounds," recalled Maynard GERTLER. "My family sent her to l'École des métiers du meuble, which was the famous art school in Montreal. She studied sculpture and graduated at the top of the class and went on to be an excellent sculptor."
Anita and Len were married in the summer of 1948. The following year, discouraged by the National Capital Commission debacle at the film board, Len GERTLER went back to school and enrolled in a master's program in economics at the University of Toronto, studying under Harold INNIS and Tom EASTERBROOK. He was thinking of going further in his studies, but his older brother said: "Don't go into economics, that's theology. Go into planning."
Coincidentally, McGill had opened its graduate department of planning in 1950, the year he graduated from the University of Toronto. Encouraged by a friend who was already in the program, he enrolled and graduated with a diploma in 1951 and went on to a job in Edmonton as a senior planner (1951), and then as director of the Edmonton District Planning Commission (from 1952 to 1957), one of Canada's first regional planning agencies. He helped develop a workable concept of regional development during the exploration/development boom of the 1950s.
Next stop was Toronto, where he was senior planner and then deputy commissioner of planning from 1957 to 1964, working on a waterfront development plan among other projects. He left municipal government to establish a planning consultancy practice for Acres Research and Planning Ltd. in Niagara Falls.
Two years later, he was invited to help establish the School of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Waterloo and became its founding director. The university administration decided that he couldn't be a full professor because he lacked a doctorate, "the magic ticket," as Len GERTLER described it. If he were good enough to be the founding director of the school, he should be qualified enough to deserve a full professorship, he wrote in his memoir Radical Rumblings: Confessions of a Peripatetic Planner (2005). "Now I know that this betrayed ignorance of the ways of academia," he wrote. "But that very ignorance stiffened my back and the University conceded."
In 1967, the Ontario government of John Robarts, worried about the effects of urban sprawl, mining and recreational skiing on the natural habitat, asked him to carry out a study of the Niagara escarpment. A year later, Prof. GERTLER produced a "seminal report," according to the Federation of Ontario Naturalists, that "not only laid out a plan for a continuous undeveloped corridor along the escarpment, but also shifted the emphasis from recreation to conservation... prompted provincial legislation to restrict quarry development and, later, to regulate all land uses." The study led to the passage of the Niagara Escarpment Act, the formation of the Niagara Escarpment Commission, and the designation of the escarpment as a World Biosphere Reserve by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization in 1990. Now, if you look at a satellite photograph of southern Ontario, you can see a green ribbon of natural habitats running from Niagara Falls to the tip of the Bruce Peninsula.
Prof. GERTLER took a two-year leave (from 1972 to 1974) to serve as director general of research and policy for prime minister Trudeau's Ministry of State for Urban Affairs. "His breadth of practice and involvement spoke to the notion that the national government should have an interest in the well-being of cities, because as cities go, so goes the country, and he saw that so early on," said Prof. WITTY. "He had the ability to see ahead of his time, but I never came to appreciate it until I was out and gone from the university [of Waterloo]."
Prof. GERTLER loved to work and continued writing the second volume of his memoirs even when his health was failing precipitously. In hospital, only days before he died, he reacted with pleasure when his son Kim brought him a book on international development for which he had written the foreword.
Leonard Oscar (Len) GERTLER was born in Montreal on October 10, 1923. He died in Toronto of throat cancer on December 9, 2005. He was 82. His wife, Anita, predeceased him in June of 2004. He is survived by four sons, a daughter, four grandchildren and his brother Maynard.
