Thomas David BERNER
By Sarah ABBOTT and Mark WIHAK, Tuesday, March 15, 2005 Page A20
Husband, father, filmmaker, mentor. Born October 8, 1943, in Toronto. Died December 10, 2004, in Toronto, of heart failure, aged 61.
Int. Winnipeg Hotel Room -- Day: A group of energetic filmmakers gathers around a wine bottle, intent on celebration. Angle On: Filmmaker #1: "Does anybody have a corkscrew?" Wide Shot: Heads shake, spirits sag. Angle On: Tom BERNER slips from the room. Cut To: Five minutes later, Tom reappears with corkscrew in hand. Filmmakers burst into joy. Tom saves the day, again. Fade Out.
Tom BERNER was the "patron saint of independent filmmaking" in Canada. If Tom didn't help you get your film made, it was because you didn't know to call him. We knew Tom through film, but, through that connection, he had an impact on us, and hundreds of other filmmakers across Canada, that we will never forget.
Tom began his career as an editor at Film Arts in Toronto. After more than 30 years, he became the post-production customer service manager when Film Arts became part of the American-owned Deluxe Laboratories in 1994.
We often wondered if Deluxe knew what Tom got up to, because he seemed to spend all his time with filmmakers whose dreams were much bigger than their bank accounts. "Tom's filmmakers" showed up at Deluxe in their Value Village clothes, sweaty from riding their bikes across town, clutching the elements for their $1,000 films. They made their way through the Deluxe labyrinth, to end up in Tom's office, squished in with boxes of finished films, short-ends and a crazy fichus plant Tom was sure would regain its leaves any day now.
Tom would sit behind his desk with a sly smile on his face as the overwhelmed filmmakers spilled out their dreams and anxieties about finishing their film. He never batted an eye when they told him how little they had budgeted for their productions. Tom would assure the filmmaker that things would work out. And without ever revealing all he had done, things worked out -- even if it sometimes meant Tom racing to the airport to deliver a print, still wet from the lab, into the hands of a frantic filmmaker flying off to attend the film's debut festival screening.
While Toronto filmmakers were lucky to have "Tom on tap," his support and encouragement touched filmmakers across the country. He helped foster emerging filmmakers through initiatives such as the National Screen Institute's Drama Prize program in Winnipeg and Edmonton, and the Ontario Media Development Corp.'s Calling Card program in Ontario. Tom's support through Deluxe helped establish the screenwriting program at the Atlantic Film Festival in Halifax and Toronto's Worldwide Short Film Festival.
When Tom retired from Deluxe in 2001, the independent filmmaking community wholeheartedly supported the 2002 creation of the Tom Berner Award for Extraordinary Support of Independent Filmmaking. Sponsored by the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto, the award is given annually. Tom, of course, was the first recipient.
Tom spent his all too-brief retirement taking art classes at the Halliburton School of Fine Arts, sitting on the board of his condominium complex, spending time with Friends dealing with illness and continuing to assist people.
Tom's wife, Betty, and his sons Christopher and Michael were deeply moved by the love and respect shown to Tom by the overflowing crowd at his memorial service. For those of us fortunate to have known him, we will see the twinkle in Tom's eyes in the flickering light of the hundreds of films he helped get made, and we will be inspired to carry on the generosity of Tom's spirit. Tom knew that film, like life, is hard to do on your own.
Sarah and Mark are Friends of Tom BERNER.

Douglas SALMON, Surgeon (1923-2005)
As the first black person in Canada to head a surgical team at a large hospital, he came a long way from being a labourer in a Toronto construction yard
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, October 31, 2005, Page S11
Orphaned, poor and black in Toronto during the Depression, Doug SALMON held steadfastly to a dream. He was going to be a doctor.
Despite a society that did not support his ambition, that's exactly what he did. For 28 years, he performed surgery at Scarborough Centenary Hospital.
The first black surgeon in modern Canadian medical history, while at Centenary he became president of the hospital's medical staff and chief of general surgery, the first black person to do so. He was among the first doctors in Canada to perform gastric bypass surgery.
"He led an exemplary life as a husband, father and grandfather," said his wife, Beverly, a former Metro Toronto and North York councillor. "His patients absolutely loved him."
Born to Jamaican immigrants, he was the youngest of six children. His father, Robert, was a veteran of the Boer War in South Africa at the turn of the last century while his mother was a nurse with the Black Cross. A brainchild of Marcus Garvey, a Jamaican-born champion of black nationalism, it was a local-community version of the Red Cross and may have provided young Doug's early inspiration to become a doctor.
After his parents died, he learned to light furnaces for a penny a piece and worked three paper routes to help provide for himself and his siblings, by then in the care of a widowed aunt. At high school, low expectations for his race saw him channelled into a technical program. Although he graduated at the top of his class, young Doug SALMON could not get a job.
All the while, he had been studying music. His piano teacher at the Royal Conservatory of Music, impressed by the boy's intelligence and desire to learn, pulled strings and found him work at Dominion Bridge, then Canada's construction giant.
He started as outside yard boy. Because he was black, no one would eat lunch with him, except for the son of the company president. His new friend saw ability in the young man and told his father. As a result, Doug SALMON was promoted to inside messenger boy and at the same time attended evening classes at Jarvis Collegiate to obtain his senior matriculation.
Interestingly, he spent other nights in an entirely different role by fronting his own band. In the 1940s, Doug Salmon and his Orchestra provided music in dance halls all over the Toronto region.
Meanwhile, in his day job, he was beginning to put into practice some of the theory he was soaking up at Jarvis. One day, he saw staff gathered around a drawing, struggling to figure out an angle. Using his night-school knowledge, he solved the problem. Suddenly, others at Dominion Bridge saw talent in him, too. After some training, he was given a job as a draftsman with the company. Later, he worked briefly as a manager, and he no doubt sensed real possibilities of advancement, but decided, instead, to go back to school.
He enrolled at the University of Toronto and in 1951 obtained a degree in physiology and biochemistry. He was accepted into medical school, paying his way with help from a scholarship, work as a draftsman, and by landing gigs as Doug Salmon and his Orchestra. All the while maintaining marks that placed him in the upper third of his class. He graduated in 1955.
Well before entering medical school, in 1942, he participated in one of the first major protests against discrimination in Toronto. Because of their colour, one of his Friends, Roy JOHNSTON, and two out-of-town guests had been denied entry to the Palais Royale, a ballroom on the Toronto lakeshore, to hear the black jazz pianist Earl (Fatha) Hines.
At a time when black parents encouraged their children to remain passive in the face of discrimination, Mr. JOHNSTON formed a protest committee. Doug SALMON was among its leaders. Appearing before the police commission, the police chief and mayor Bob SAUNDERS, the committee requested a bylaw to end discrimination in time for an upcoming appearance at the Palais Royale by bandleader Duke Ellington. While the bylaw did not come about, Mr. Ellington appeared instead at the Royal York Hotel, where blacks were allowed.
In February of 1945, Doug SALMON was among those who protested the barring of a black teenager from a Toronto skating rink, joining a couple of hundred others outside the arena. The protest was led this time by Art BELL, who, as a member of a student administration committee at the University of Toronto, was then deeply involved in human rights. "It was a civil-rights protest that was civil," Mr. BELL said. "It wasn't one of those beat'em-up-and-break-the-windows type of protests. We just marched."
By all accounts, it worked. After two nights of picketing and a visit to the mayor, the group had its way. Mr. SAUNDERS dusted off a bylaw from the days of Upper Canada that said innkeepers must provide lodging and refreshment to any traveller who has the means to pay for the service. It was enacted the next day.
Along with Dr. SALMON, other committee members rose to prominence. Mr. JOHNSTON became a trustee of the Toronto Board of Education and Wilson BROOKS became one of Toronto's first black school principals.
In a twist of fate, through his sister, Dr. SALMON met his future wife, Beverly BELL, who also happened to both a nurse and Art BELL's cousin. After marrying in 1956, they moved to Detroit, where Dr. SALMON became a resident in general surgery.
Although offered a practice in Detroit, Dr. SALMON returned home where he and his wife started a family. In 1967, he landed a job at Scarborough Centenary as a member of the general surgical staff. He was the only black surgeon on staff, but not the first black surgeon in Canada. That distinction belonged to another Toronto doctor, Dr. Anderson Ruffin ABBOTT, a man who had graduated from the University of Toronto in 1861, served as a Union Army surgeon during the American Civil War and afterward returned home to be a resident surgeon at Toronto General Hospital, all at a time when anesthesia was in its infancy.
Over the years, Dr. SALMON put in long hours and gained a reputation as a highly skilled practitioner with a caring and compassionate bedside manner who had helped pioneer such techniques as bypass surgery for the morbidly obese. In time, the hospital made him chief of general surgery. As the first black person in the country to head the surgical team at a large hospital, and someone in whose hands lay the power of life and death, he had come a long way from the construction yard at Dominion Bridge.
Dr. SALMON worked at Centenary from 1967 until 1995, and then at the Rudd Clinic in Toronto. He retired in 1997.
He was awarded the Canadian Black Achievement Award for medicine in 1986 and 1994. In his honour, his family has established the Dr. John Douglas Graham Salmon Award for Black Medical Students.
John Douglas Graham SALMON was born on December 13, 1923. He died at home in Toronto on September 21 of vascular dementia. He was 81. One sister, his wife, Beverly, children, Doug Jr., Warren,
Heather and Leslie survive him. Four siblings and one grandchild predeceased him.

FEATHERSTONE, Edgar
Passed away peacefully after a long struggle with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis on March 22, 2005 at the age of 83. Beloved husband of the late Mary G. FEATHERSTONE (February 2005.) Predeceased by his parents Elizabeth and Ernest of Hull, sisters Gertrude GUERIN and Alice CROSBIE, brother Tom all of New Zealand and brother Ernest of Australia. Loving father to sons, John and wife Laura of Toronto and Paul and wife Kathey of Calgary. Devoted grandfather to Devin of Prince George and Marin of Calgary. Will be sadly missed by his in-laws Jean and Dan HANNAY of England and many nieces and nephews in Australia, England and New Zealand. Will be fondly remembered by his good Friends throughout Canada, the U.S.A. and Britain. Born in Hull, England July 6, 1921, Edgar started his working life at age 13 as an apprentice with the Hull Cooperative stores. Among his duties was the delivery of groceries by bicycle, he soon developed a passion for bicycle racing and joined the Hull Thursday Road Club, that being the apprentices' day off. At the outbreak of World War 2 he joined the Royal Air Force with aspirations of becoming an aerial gunner, but poor depth perception grounded him and he was trained as an aero-engine technician. He spent most of the war years in what is now India, Pakistan and Iran. Returning to Hull after the war Edgar worked as a taxi driver, his most memorable fare being the comedians Laurel and Hardy. During the late 40's he set out on a journey by boat, train and flying boat that took him across Canada, the south Pacific as a shipboard waiter, through New Zealand and into the heart of Australia as a driver of a mobile optometrist's clinic. Edgar returned to Hull in 1950 where he met Mary ABBOTT, a district nurse. After moving to Canada and in 1952 marrying Mary in Toronto, Edgar enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force. Subsequent posting saw the family move to Bagotville, Québec, Zweibrucken, Germany, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Gimli, Manitoba, Alliston, Camp Borden and Oro Station, Ontario. Upon retirement from the Canadian Armed Forces Edgar, Mary, John and Paul moved to Windsor, where Edgar taught for 15 years at Western Secondary School in Essex County. The years following his teaching career were spent travelling with Mary to Europe, Australia and New Zealand, spending the winters in Naples, Florida until ill health prevented further journeys. His final years were eased by Mary's T.L.C. and skills as a nurse. Special thanks from the family go to the kind and caring staff at Chateau Park Nursing Home in Windsor, Ontario. Following Edgar's wishes, a private family memorial will take place. Donations in lieu of flowers to the research fund of the A.L.S. Society of Windsor, Essex County, 1426 Front Road South, Amherstburg, Ontario N9V 2M6.
