McLELLAN, Angus Ronald
Born April 18, 1924 in Glasgow, Scotland. Died March 1st, 2005 in Victoria, British Columbia after an eight year struggle with the effects of a stroke. Only child of the late Helen Stewart and Angus McLELLAN Sr. The family immigrated to Toronto when Angus was a child. He grew up in East End Toronto. Most beloved husband of Patricia. Also survived by Pat's brother Brian DOWNES, his wife Jenny and their children Sam and Lucy in England; cousin Archie McGUGAN and Elizabeth in Victoria, cousins in Scotland and Pat's extended family of Aunts and cousins in England, Toronto and India.
To correct a stammer (that's another story!), Angus applied to and was accepted by at the Lorne Greene Academy of Radio Arts in Toronto. He was an early graduate. He became head Writer for Greene's daily newscasts on CKEY when it was the #1 station in Toronto. After CKEY, Angus was one of the founders of the television station in North Bay, Ontario
In the mid-'50's Angus moved to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio News in Toronto. He had found his niche in broadcasting! He originated Sunday Morning Magazine and The World At Six (and Eight) and Radio News' national coverage of many federal elections. He also did a stint as Executive Producer of Specials for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television News, responsible at the time for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Watergate coverage. He was briefly Executive Producer of W5 for CTV. Radio remained his real love and he returned to it for the rest of his working life in Toronto until he and Pat moved to Victoria in 1982.
He was a very strong supporter of public broadcasting and of equality and social justice for all. He considered his documentary on the American singer Paul Robeson one of the highlights of his career along with his two-hour documentary and analysis at the end of the Viet Nam war.
No service and no flowers by Angus's very specific request. Donations may be made to Doctors Without Borders, #402 - 720 Spadina Avenue, Toronto, Ontario. M5S 2T9 or Mount Saint Mary Hospital, 861 Fairfield Road, Victoria, British Columbia V8V 5A9.

Richard LYONS, Elder and Dancer: 1925-2005
Ojibwa leader who was born off the reserve came late to Couchiching traditions but made up for lost time by becoming a cultural authority
By Stephanie MacLELLAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, May 2, 2005, Page S9
Thunder Bay, Ontario -- In the years before Richard LYONS learned to dance, Ojibwa culture in northwestern Ontario was quietly slipping its way towards extinction. The era of residential schools had left First Nations communities with fragmented cultural traditions. The sacred ceremonies that had lasted hundreds of years were furtive at best, but more often, absent altogether.
"It wasn't cool to be native back then," said Mark SAULT, a director at Seven Generations Education Institute and a long-time friend. "We were being civilized into society."
Richard LYONS was born not on a reserve but in Fort Frances, Ontario, where his father worked as an interpreter for the Department of Indian Affairs. He was a member of the Couchiching First Nation but lived in town and was educated at Catholic schools. Growing up, being native was only something that got him picked on at school.
At 18, Mr. LYONS joined the Canadian Army and was stationed at Camp Shilo, Manitoba While home on leave, he met Marjorie SPEAKER in a Chinese food restaurant. The two married after he left the army in 1946 and Marjorie soon took him to see her reserve.
Traditional culture was thriving in Manitou Rapids First Nation, now a part of the Rainy River First Nations, a small community about 30 kilometres west of Fort Frances. In contrast to other communities, powwows and spiritual ceremonies were common. From the first moment he saw the dancing and heard the drumbeats, Mr. LYONS was captivated. It didn't take long for him to join in, dancing in his street clothes among the colourful, hand-crafted costumes of others. "It just came natural," Mrs. LYONS recalled. "He just felt like he had to be dancing."
Mr. LYONS spent time with the elders of Manitou Rapids, learning the dance steps, the songs, the story that each dance told. At first it was grass dancing, a freestyle named for the way the wind blew across a field of grass, but later he moved to a traditional style based on war dances. Even as he was learning, he knew he wanted to pass on what he'd been taught.
"I think he felt that it needed to be shared, not only amongst our own people, but it needed to be shared with non-native people to enrich everyone," said his youngest daughter, Kathy BECK. "He wasn't political about it, and he didn't have any motives in it, other than sharing it."
In the late 1950s, Mr. LYONS moved to Thunder Bay to take a job as a lumber grader in a sawmill and he started giving demonstrations at the newly constructed Thunder Bay Indian Friendship Centre. Since no one else knew the music, he'd go to gatherings with a tape recorder. Later, when he performed, he danced alone to the fuzzy recordings of drumming and chanting.
"He was in his own world when he danced," Mr. SAULT said. "He just wanted to show that it is still alive. He wanted to share it."
Mr. LYONS was especially concerned with sharing his new knowledge with younger generations. Like today, children from remote, Northern Ontario communities would come to Thunder Bay to attend high school. Mr. LYONS resolved that they never forget their culture, as he had done. Instead, he performed for them and gave talks at local schools to explain what the dances meant.
He also started teaching dance at the Friendship centre. Johnny PIERRE was a teenager, struggling with the temptations of drugs and alcohol, when he became one of Mr. LYONS' first students. "For me, he gave me a sense of belonging," Mr. PIERRE said. "He showed me a different way of living."
He also made the youngsters stumbling through strange steps feel at ease. "He was a very patient person."
Mr. LYONS taught dance nearly every night he wasn't working. Whenever he could, he travelled with his wife and their four children to gatherings in faraway communities in Ontario and the United States. He'd often drive all night and make it back home in time to work his next shift at the sawmill.
"When he first started, he wasn't planning on doing this," Ms. BECK said. "Then when people started asking him to do performances and teachings, he just started getting more and more requests. He began to see that this is perhaps a calling."
In the end, Mr. LYONS left his job at the sawmill to devote more time to teaching and performing. He also became cultural co-ordinator at the Indian Friendship Centre.
In 1972, he founded the Dick Lyons Dance Troupe. Over the next 16 years, it steadily grew, touring North America and Europe and performing at schools and cultural events. First Nations drum-and-dance groups sprang up in their wake. "There was a big turnaround," Mr. PIERRE said. "I think he bridged a big gap in the community."
When the Queen visited Thunder Bay in 1973, the Fort William First Nation asked Mr. LYONS to organize a performance at Mount McKay scenic lookout. That single event turned into a large annual powwow that now occurs every Canada Day.
All the same, bringing hope to the community was just as important to him as bringing them his dancing. Mr. LYONS was a spiritual adviser to aboriginal inmates at Thunder Bay District Jail. He was also a founding elder of Dilico Ojibway Child and Family Services. "He addressed the region from all levels," said Jerry WOODS, who still works at Dilico. "Right from the children's level to sitting at the table with the board of directors, advising us of the traditions and culture."
Ms. BECK remembers him sitting at the kitchen table until 3 a.m. with chiefs and elders, trying to learn everything he could about legends and spirituality. "It wasn't just dancing and singing, the entertainment of it," she said. "There was a lot more depth than that."
In the foothills of the Norwester Mountains, south of Thunder Bay, sits an improbable outdoor shrine to the Virgin Mary. Richard LYONS used to make the trek out into the bush to pray there, climbing off the beaten path to reach the statue. But it was never the typical series of rosary recitations, even though he was raised Catholic. He'd offer tobacco, and meditate in the spirit of the outdoors, honouring the Native spirituality he found later in life.
Many people credit Mr. LYONS with restoring Native culture and spirituality to prominence in northwestern Ontario. But it was never at the expense of Christianity, the region's more established religion. "He didn't make a distinction between the two," Ms. BECK said. "To him it was all one."
Mr. LYONS, who in 2002 was named a member of the Order of Canada, was often asked to address graduations and other gatherings but knew better than to take himself too seriously. "Because he was an elder, people used to expect him to have these profound statements," Ms. BECK said. "So he'd talk to them in a really profound way, and then it would turn out to be a joke."
Mr. LYONS was also an elder in another dimension, too. Mr. SAULT and Mr. PIERRE both regarded him as a father figure and say that many more felt the same way.
"There was an amazing number of people he spoke to over the years that would come and ask him for advice," Ms. BECK said. "He always said, 'I don't know why they come to me... I don't have a magic formula.' But for some reason, people really liked what he had to say."
Mr. LYONS had already been battling cancer for about three years when his son Brian died of complications from a heart condition in the spring of 2004. On the day of the memorial service, he was counselling other people.
"The culture is thriving in this area now, and I think that's his main legacy," Ms. BECK said. "At the same time, his legacy as a person is that he touched so many people."
Richard LYONS was born in Fort Frances, Ontario, on January 10, 1925. He died of cancer on March 21, 2005, in Thunder Bay, Ontario He was 80. He is survived by Marjorie, his wife of 59 years, and by daughters Verna LEGARDE and Kathy BECK. He was predeceased by sons Richard and Brian.

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.

Victim thought stalker jailed
Man on bail shot woman, husband
'She asked for help many, many times'
By Tracy HUFFMAN, Crime Reporter
Szilvia VERES thought she was safe.
The man who had stalked her, broken into her workplace and threatened to kill her husband was in jail. If released from custody, she would be notified.
That's what the 35-year-old native of Hungary told her mother in a telephone conversation just 30 minutes before that man -- John KOVACS -- ambushed VERES and her husband in an underground parking garage in North York on February 11.
VERES was fatally shot. Her husband, Miklos KEMENCZY, survived a bullet to the head. After undergoing emergency surgery, KEMENCZY is recuperating at home and mourning the loss of his wife. Miraculously his brain is fully functioning.
KOVACS was later found dead in a Quebec hotel room of a single gunshot wound. Police believe he killed himself.
"She told me not to worry. He was in jail," VERES's mother, Janosne VERES, said while clutching a keychain with her daughter's photograph.
At the time, KOVACS, 52, was free on $1,500 bail on charges of criminal harassment and uttering death threats to KEMENCZY.
According to her mother, Szilvia VERES was told she would be called about any upcoming court dates for KOVACS or if he was applying for bail. Janosne VERES said that never happened.
"I can't understand why a judge let John KOVACS go.... Why didn't they tell Szilvia?" VERES said in Hungarian as KEMENCZY's niece, Gina GÖNCZI, translated during an interview with the Star.
Those are issues that VERES's mother said she can't understand. KEMENCZY's sister and niece, who live just outside Toronto, said they hope further investigation of the homicide will provide some answers. The coroner's office is investigating the case.
Szilvia VERES and KEMENCZY had reported KOVACS's behaviour to police several times and KOVACS was arrested three times.
Even so, "we don't think the police took her complaints seriously," said Katalin BISHOP, KEMENCZY's sister.
"Szilvia was very afraid of him."
Since she was a teenager, Szilvia VERES dreamed about moving from her small Hungarian village to Canada.
"I don't know why, but that was her dream. She couldn't explain it either," Janosne VERES said, wiping tears from her eyes.
As a little girl, VERES was very sweet, her mother said. She was a happy child who liked "pretty things and pretty clothes." She loved her family and even after she moved to Canada, VERES called her mother every day.
She enjoyed reading and would often write poems. She loved to cook, especially exotic foods, her mother said. She loved her husband -- they married in a private ceremony in November -- and they were a very happy couple, family members said.
"She was very good-hearted, good-natured. She never caused anyone any harm," Janosne VERES said.
In December 2001, Szilvia VERES realized her life-long dream and moved to Toronto.
Her mother didn't want her to go, but she left her family behind, for a country where she knew no one.
"She wanted to become a citizen and then bring me here to visit, to see all the sites," Janosne VERES said.
Szilvia VERES worked several jobs to support herself, eventually finding enjoyment caring for an elderly woman, whose family treated her like one of their own, Janosne VERES said.
"She was happy here."
Szilvia VERES's dream of a happy life changed when she met KOVACS over coffee. The meeting turned into a very brief relationship. She moved in with him, her mother said, but moved out two days later. That was about a year ago.
"She couldn't even stand to touch his hand. She did not like him," Janosne VERES said.
After she moved out, VERES told family members she was afraid of KOVACS.
KOVACS began to stalk VERES. He threatened to kill her. After he was arrested, VERES and KEMENCZY thought they were safe.
"I can't understand why she wasn't protected. She asked for help many, many, times," Janosne VERES said. The system failed her daughter and son-in-law, VERES said.
"Fifteen hundred dollars (bail)? Is that all she was worth?" BISHOP asked.
Janosne VERES has limited means, so she borrowed the money for an airplane ticket and made the journey to Canada from Hungary to attend her daughter's funeral and to try to find some answers.
Her husband and son could not join her because of the financial burden it would put on the family.
"They are very hurt they couldn't be here," VERES said. She was to return to Hungary yesterday with half her daughter's ashes KEMENCZY has the other half.
Dr. Barry McLELLAN, Ontario's chief coroner, said several issues must be examined in VERES's death. One of them would be whether she was told of KOVACS's bail.
"We will look at all the issues," he said, adding the review is standard when a case involves domestic violence. "An inquest is being considered."
The coroner has called inquests into deaths relating to domestic violence in the past, but McLELLAN said that doesn't eliminate the possibility of an inquest in this case.
During the review, McLELLAN said the committee will collect all relevant information, including KOVACS's criminal background, any previous history of violence and any direction given by courts.
At the end of the process, the coroner will decide whether or not to call an inquest. "We take these issues very seriously. And there's a combination of issues here," McLELLAN said.
On February 11, VERES spoke to her mother for the last time.
She told her mother she wanted to return to Hungary to visit her family as soon as she became a Canadian citizen.
Janosne VERES asked her daughter about KOVACS.
"She hadn't talked about John for a long time. She said, 'Don't mention him. He is a nightmare.'"
She told her mother not to worry.
"She thought he was in jail. She thought she was safe."
Thirty minutes later, Szilvia VERES was dead.

MacLELLAN, Charles (1919-2005)
Charles passed away March 16, 2005. Born Charles MacLELLAN August 28, 1919 to John Sandy and Catherine (MacINNIS) at Deepdale, Inverness County. The "kings" (as these MacLELLANs were known) were very musical. Each of the eleven children were talented musicians. Charlie was the seventh son and second youngest. He taught himself to read music at a young age and was a great sight reader and talented violinist. He spoke Gaelic fluently and always promoted Scottish tradition and hospitality. Charlie married Catharine TOMPKINS (deceased January 20, 2005) and they celebrated 60 years together. He served in the forces during the Second World War. He worked in the Inverness coal mines until their first daughter Myrna was born. They moved to Ontario where he worked in different mining companies. He settled in Toronto and joined the Iron Workers Local 727 and was honoured with a 50 years member award. Charlie continued his musical legacy in the city. He entertained Cape Bretoners at his dances for many years. An accomplished violinist, Charlie would entertain guests after the dance with Kaye accompanying him on the piano. Musicians would come to exchange tunes, laughs and stories. Charlie's generosity, talent, and sense of humour will always be remembered. The rhythm in his heart was Celtic and he instilled this in his children bringing them to Cape Breton each summer. They learnt to appreciate the Land, the heritage, the music and the cousins. His children Myrna, Jack, Rita, and Chuck thank him for that. Moran Taing! Thank You! Cremation has taken place and a Memorial Mass will be held at St. Patrick Church, McColl Street, Toronto. Reverend Joseph RUTA will celebrate the Mass at 10 a.m. Monday, March 21, 2005. A Mass of Thanksgiving celebrating the life of Charlie will be held at Stella Maris Church, Inverness, August 6.
