COLE, Karen Edith (née LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH)
After a sudden but courageous battle with cancer, Karen Edith COLE of Woodstock Ontario was accepted into the Lord's arms on Tuesday, April 5th, 2005 from Surrey Memorial Hospital in Surrey, British Columbia. She was taken from us far too soon -- she was only in her 58th year with so many things she still wanted to see and do. But she left behind the best of herself in her children, and we will uphold her legacy for as long as we walk the earth. Our mother's short life was one filled with many joys, but also many trials and tribulations. Now, she can finally rest peacefully, no longer weighed down by the worries of this world. She was a mother, daughter, sister, grandmother, friend and mentor to many people. We will never forget what she meant to all of us.
She was a mother to Nikki and Brad HUNTER of London, Ontario, Domonique and Angelito DOMINGO of Bellingham, Washington, Candace COLE of Aldergrove, British Columbia and Vincent COLE of Aldergrove, British Columbia. She was the daughter of Jack and Sylvia LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH of Woodstock, Ontario and sister to Kerry LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH of Bradenton, Florida. She was a grandmother to Desiree EATON of London, Ontario, and the hopeful grandma of Dom and Angel's future children. She was a dear friend to many, but most especially Susette NEEDHAM who was the best friend mom had ever known.
Mom was also a mentor to many, and in her death we have learned even more about her goodness and farreaching generosity. She will be sadly missed in more ways than we even know yet. But Mom lived to laugh, and we're certain she's looking down upon us all now and rejoicing each time we find a moment to smile or laugh in her memory. So we ought not linger in sadness for too long because somehow, some way, Karen COLE will find a way to reach down from heaven and kick us in the pants if we do. We love you Mom. The family would like to thank everyone for their prayers and support these last few months -- they have meant more than words can express. Support by way of contributions to the British Columbia Cancer Society and/or participation in Relay for Life and other cancer initiatives would be greatly treasured.

Earl ORSER, Business Leader: 1928-2004
He started out as a charted accountant and soon found he was most interested in building companies, writes Sandra MARTIN. Blessed with curiosity, intelligence and an ability to motivate subordinates, he not only switched jobs but successfully hopscotched his way across entire business sectors
By Sandra MARTIN, Monday, January 3, 2005 - Page S6
A poor boy from the Danforth in Toronto, Earl ORSER was a company executive, a mentor, a proud Canadian and an energetic and effective volunteer.
He began as a chartered accountant with Clarkson Gordon and ended his career as president and chief executive officer of London Life Insurance Company, raising the firm's assets during his 20-year tenure from $2.9 billion to $16.4 billion. He's also known for his rocky three-year ride at the T. Eaton family in the mid-1970s where he shut down the money-losing catalogue operations in the family owned retail empire. Many observers believe that had he stayed at the helm, the company might have survived.
"I always thought of him as the consummate manager," said Jim ETHERINGTON, who was hired by Mr. ORSER at London Life in 1982 as a vice-president and worked with him until they both retired in the mid 1990s. Being a good manager for Mr. ORSER meant caring deeply about your people, getting to know them well, helping them and challenging them.
"He never argued against an idea from anybody," said Mr. ETHERINGTON, who now runs his own communications company. "He came to the table with lots of ideas himself, but he was almost intuitive in encouraging the ideas of others at the same time. That made him a very special kind of a manager."
"He was grounded in a strong set of values and they never wavered," said Carol STEPHENSON, dean of the Richard Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario. "Earl was Earl. He was solid, he knew what he believed and he stuck to it no matter what he was doing."
Commenting on his acumen as a business leader, Ms. STEPHENSON pointed out that Mr. ORSER was unusual for his time in that he not only moved jobs, he changed sectors -- from accounting to retail to insurance. The reason he was so successful in so many different industries, she said, was because he was a great leader and that came from his curiosity, his intelligence and his "amazing" ability to motivate and empower people. "When I think back to my business career in the 1970s," she added, "the predominate style was command and control -- I'm the boss and you're not and I suspect Earl never had an ounce of that in him."
"He was a very good father," said Barbara ORSER, a business professor at Carleton University in Ottawa, and one of Mr. ORSER's four daughters. Saying her father was good at setting boundaries, she said her parents paid for one degree and one wedding and then you "were off the payroll."
Doing your best was a "well-understood point" in the ORSER family. So was speaking your mind. Mentioning that some business powerhouses can be "fairly patriarchal" at home, she said that her father had to fight for conversational space like everybody else. "We all had a voice and there was always a place for everyone at the table." she said. "There were lots of Friends who loved and cared for dad because they were part of the family as well."
Earl Herbert ORSER was born in Toronto, the year before the stock-market crash. His father was a telegraph operator and he had one sister. As a grade eight student at Earl Beattie School, Mr. ORSER was taught that "speed, neatness, politeness, industry and accuracy" were the keys to success in life and he passed on the message to his children and his grandchildren, all of whom could recite the list on command.
Mr. ORSER went to high school at Danforth Technical School and worked as a porter at Union Station at Christmas to help make ends meet. He was the first person in his family to attend university and was only able to register a the University of Toronto in 1946 because of a $200 bursary from the Leonard Foundation.
As with many smart boys, education was the route away from poverty. He never forgot the help he had been given and later in life he founded many scholarships and served actively as a fundraiser, benefactor and adviser to both the University of Toronto and University of Western Ontario. At Western, among many other activities, he chaired the Board of Governors and the Advisory Committee of the Ivey Business School
His father died when he was still in university and his mother moved to Edmonton. It was on a visit there that Mr. ORSER met a nurse from Moose Jaw named Marion QUEENIE. They corresponded after Mr. ORSER returned to Toronto, saw each other again that Christmas and married on August 4, 1951, a year after he graduated with a bachelor of commerce degree. He qualified as a chartered accountant in 1953, having done his articles with Clarkson Gordon, and was made a partner in the firm in 1958.
A lot of people would have settled down happily for the rest of their careers, but Mr. ORSER was interested in building companies.
His curriculum vitae is studded with high powered jobs at Molson Industries (apparently, his mother never let her teetotalling Friends know that her son was making his living in beer), Air Canada, Eaton's and London Life and directorships at places such as Spar Aerospace and Brascan.
All of these career moves meant that the entire family had to "embrace new challenges" by moving to new schools in different cities. That helped build a sense of family, said his daughter Barbara, because they had to rely on each other. She still remembers moving to Toronto when she was in grade 12, an uprooting that she wouldn't want to impose on her own daughter. But "with four kids we had a bit of a quorum, so we could support each other."
Mr. ORSER's most tumultuous job was as vice-president finance and then president and Chief Executive Officer of Eaton's from 1974-77. The famous Eaton catalogue was spewing money -- $17 million in 1974 with losses expected to more than double the next year. Mr. ORSER orchestrated its closing, but ran afoul of the Eaton family. He resigned in May, 1977, to the shock of many business observers, and was replaced by Frederik S. EATON.
Almost immediately Mr. ORSER was hired as a consultant by Brascan, who had acquired a large number of shares in London Life and wanted somebody they trusted to give them a report on the insurance business and London Life, then the largest insurance company in Canada, in particular. Mr. ORSER presented his report in 1978 and was then hired as executive vice-president and Chief Executive Officer, becoming president in 1980 and chairman of the board on his retirement from the company in 1989. In 1994 he began a three-year term as honorary chairman.
He was a meticulous planner and a detail man, according to Mt. ETHERINGTON. "We used to kid him about being a C.A. and he would smile and say 'You get to know the balance sheet and then you know where the problems are.' "
He changed London Life significantly from a largely family run firm to a public company called Trilon Financial Corporation, which then became the London Insurance Group, another publicly traded company which was eventually acquired by Great West. "He chuckled one day and said 'this is really neat,'" said Mr. ETHERINGTON. "I sold London Life for $125 million for Trilon and then I sold it again for $220 million to the London Insurance Group. That's a good deal."
He was interested in far more than the bottom line, however. People still talk about how he would take two or three days each Christmas to walk around the huge London Life offices visiting with employees, getting to know them and wishing them well for the holidays.
While Mr. ORSER was running London Life, his wife was quietly doing an undergraduate degree in theology, followed by a masters in divinity at University of Western Ontario. Her husband, who was then chair of the board at University of Western Ontario was able to grant his wife her degree at the graduation ceremony.
Mr. ORSER was almost as busy as a volunteer for the London Economic Development Corporation and his many other volunteer activities after he retired as when he was a full-time executive. And, as he had done, throughout his career, he continued to serve as a mentor. "He was a wonderful person in terms of being able to help you work through complex problems, not by preaching at you, but by making you think a problem through," says Ms. STEPHENSON who asked him for advice after she left the business world, a place where it is pretty clear what the bottom line is and who the clients are, to take on the more complex stakeholder issues of university administration. "He listened and then he helped me to discover the right answer by asking the right questions."
Four years ago, Mr. ORSER was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in the common bile duct. He underwent major surgery and appeared to have recovered. The doctors were amazed, according to his daughter who says he was a "miracle man" until the cancer returned and he received a terminal diagnosis about three weeks ago.
"There were no tears, no complaints. It was a matter of fact," said his daughter Barbara. "He was a man of faith and he had a calm and a peace about him, but he was very pragmatic and he always had his humour. The legacy is that his grandchildren have watched this," she said. "His last and his greatest gift to his family is to show us how you can die with dignity."
Earl ORSER was born on July 5, 1928 in Toronto. He died of cancer at home in London, Ontario, on December 26, 2004. He was 76. He is survived by his wife Marion and four daughters and their families. A memorial service will be held at First-St. Andrew's United Church in London, Ontario, on January 8, 2004.

Bill had also been Regional Director in Calgary, Winnipeg, Cornwall and Quebec, the other four regions of Parks Canada, the only person to hold all five senior operational positions in the history of Parks Canada. He leaves many Friends throughout Canada and will be sorrowly missed for his wisdom and his sage advice - He was one in a million! Special thanks to Marge and Barry BOUTILIER, Mike LEVERMAN, Joe O'BRIEN and Bob EATON for their dedication and loyalty to Bill over the years, as Bill was confined to his home and depended solely upon his dear Friends to assist him with all his personal needs and shopping. Bill was predeceased by his loving sister, Marie McCRACKEN in 1990, and is survived by his nephew, Steve McCRACKEN (Lorraine) and their children Sarah and Bill, who reside in Kilbride, Ontario. To quote Bill, 'Life is a big circle, dying is part of living, and when your time is up, it's time to go, and there is nothing you can do about it.' At Bill's request, cremation has taken place; there will be no funeral or memorial service. Arrangements for cremation have been entrusted to Ferguson's Funeral Home, Montague, Prince Edward Island Burial will be at Mount Hermon Cemetery, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia at a later date.

Royce FRITH, Lawyer, Politician, Diplomat 1923-2005
As canny as he was charming, he never seriously ran for office and instead horse-traded his way into the Senate before being sent to London as High Commissioner, writes Sandra MARTIN. An enthusiastic amateur thespian, he above all relished the drama of the 1995 turbot wars against Spanish fishermen
Saturday, March 26, 2005, Page S9
Tall, patrician, and impeccably dressed, Royce FRITH was a natural communicator who moved through life with charm and grace. A lawyer by training, a Liberal by avocation, and a performer by instinct, he had the potential to be either chief justice of the Supreme Court or prime minister. That he was neither was a mystery to many, but the most likely explanation was fourfold: He was intensely private; his many talents, which included acting and singing, tempted him to enjoy life in the broadest sense; he needed to make a living; and, although he relished influence, he wasn't hungry enough to seek real power.
Mr. FRITH suffered two great tragedies in his life -- the breakdown of his marriage followed by his estranged wife's premature death in 1976, and the death four years later of his son Greg from malignant melanoma at age 25 -- but he kept his anguish to himself and never really spoke about these losses even with his closest Friends. He maintained the same strict privacy in the last few years about his own struggle with cancer. Even many of his closest Friends did not know the extent of his illness.
He served his country as a member of the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism, as a Senator during the Trudeau and Mulroney eras, and perhaps most famously as the High Commissioner to England and Northern Ireland who saved Canada House and who rallied British fishermen to the Canadian cause during the "turbot war" with the Spanish in the mid-1990s.
Earlier this week, senators from all sides of the Upper Chamber rose to pay tribute to Mr. FRITH. Liberal Joyce FAIRBURN noted that he had "cut a swath through this place with a potent mix of intellect, talent, humour, stubbornness, skill and commitment that challenged the rest of us to think and act well beyond the boundaries of this chamber." Conservative Lowell MURRAY, who had often "crossed swords" with Mr. FRITH, especially during the 1990 G.S.T. filibuster, praised him as "a model of bilingualism," and an "enjoyable, engaging and interesting companion and a great raconteur." Long-time political strategist Dorothy DAVEY, speaking on behalf of herself and her husband, former Senator Keith DAVEY, said, "he brought intelligence and élan to every position he held and joy and warmth to every Friendship he graced and every room he entered,"
Royce Herbert FRITH was born in Lachine, Quebec, the only son of George Harry FIRTH and Annie Beatrice ROYCE. He was educated at Lachine High School and transferred to Parkdale Collegiate after the family moved to Toronto in the mid-1930s. He graduated from the University of Toronto in 1946 and Osgoode Hall in 1949 and then did a Diplôme d' études supérieures (droit) at the University of Ottawa. By then, he had married Elizabeth DAVISON, a professional singer whom he had met through The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir.
Back in Toronto, the FRITHs lived in Leaside and Mr. FRITH practised law on his own for nearly two years before joining two colleagues to form the firm of Magwood, Frith and Pocock. He made his political affiliation to the Liberal party early, serving as national treasurer of the Young Liberal Association in 1949. He got involved in local politics by sitting on Leaside town council in 1951 and 1952 and serving as reeve in 1953. He won the nomination as the provincial Liberal candidate for York East in 1955, but lost by more than 7,000 votes to Hollis BECKETT, the Conservative candidate.
He never ran for public office again. Former Senator John NICHOL thinks of Mr. FRITH as a Renaissance man. He speculates that he didn't actively pursue a career in elected politics because "his interests were so broad, in the arts and music, that I don't think he wanted to limit himself to the treadmill existence of an member of Parliament, or worse, a cabinet minister."
Instead he became a strategist and an organizer, becoming president of the Ontario Liberal Association in 1960, a position he held until 1962. By then, he was one of the key members of Cell 13, a group organized by Keith DAVEY, then national director of the Liberal Party, to build up electoral support for Lester PEARSON and his brand of reform liberalism throughout the country after the party's disastrous showings in the 1957 and 1958 federal elections. One of Cell 13's key activities, as described by Christina McCall-Newman in her book Grits, was "travelling show-and tell demonstrations of canvassing, speaking, and advertising methods" for novice candidates, collected under the rubric of the School of Practical Politics. Mr. FRITH, was a key trainer in these "campaign colleges."
Before the 1963 election that gave Mr. PEARSON his first minority government, the perfectly bilingual Mr. FRITH was a practising lawyer, the host of a television program called Telepoll on the newly formed CTV network, and an applicant before the Board of Broadcast Governors for a licence to establish a private radio station in Windsor, close to the border with the United States.
He got the licence, much to the annoyance of Windsor member of Parliament Paul MARTIN, who thought it should go to a local, and four months later relinquished it in favour of his silent partner, media czar Geoffrey STIRLING.
Mr. DAVEY was not pleased at these public rufflings of Liberal party solidarity, which provided John DIEFENBAKER with fuel for his scathing wit. In his 1986 book, The Rainmaker, he wrote: "Though never quite a dilettante, Royce was not prepared to commit totally to anything, least of all a political career." He went on to say that he regarded Mr. FRITH as "a squandered political resource" who might even have been prime minister. "Too often, however, he slid by on his remarkable personality."
Mr. PEARSON did not share that view. One of his first acts as Prime Minister was to establish the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism, with Mr. FRITH as one of ten commissioners. He served the Commission faithfully and well, saying at one point in the hearings that: "If one section of the country sees it as consisting of a majority and a minority while the other sees it as an equal partnership, this does not provide a fertile ground for the exchange of culture. Until we can find ways to change these attitudes, the present conflict will continue."
Earlier this week, Keith SPICER, who was appointed Canada's first Commissioner of Official Languages by Pierre TRUDEAU in 1970, paid tribute to Mr. FRITH who served as his legal adviser. "Royce's advice, in those days when language was still a minefield of anger, misunderstanding and prejudice, was fundamental to the success of the Official Languages Act."
As canny as he was charming, Mr. FRITH struck himself an advantageous deal when the Liberals wanted him to be Ontario campaign manager in the late 1970s. Perhaps Mr. FRITH knew how hard it would be to deliver Ontario to the Liberals in the wake of Mr. TRUDEAU's imposition of the War Measures Act and wage and price controls. He was willing to give up his lucrative law practice to serve the party but he asked for, and received, an appointment to the Senate in 1977. He then took on running the Ontario campaign in the 1979 election, the election that saw Mr. TRUDEAU trounced by Joe CLARK's Progressive Conservatives.
In the Senate, Mr. FRITH was an active and gifted debater and served as deputy leader of the government from 1980 to 1984, deputy leader of the Opposition from 1984 to 1991 and leader of the Opposition from 1991. Working in Ottawa gave him the opportunity to spend more time in nearby Perth, his mother's ancestral home in the Ottawa Valley, and to indulge his passion for amateur theatricals, including playing Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady. "Quite frankly," said Senator David SMITH, "he was better looking than Rex Harrison and he had a real polish and flair."
He resigned his Senate seat in 1994, five years before mandatory retirement at age 75, to become High Commissioner to London, his final and most triumphant period of public life. He waged two major campaigns. Under his predecessor Fredrik EATON, appointed by Brian MULRONEY, there was a serious danger that the lease on Canada House in its flagship location in Trafalgar Square in London, was going to be allowed to lapse. Mr. FRITH was appalled and did his utmost to point out that losing Canada House was going to be a blow to Canadian tradition and prestige. He also discovered that under the terms of the lease, Canada had to restore the building to its original condition before handing it back to the Crown. Instead of saving money, giving up Canada House was going to cost a great deal. That proved a winning argument in those cost-conscious days.
Former Liberal Cabinet minister Brian Tobin, now a lawyer in the private sector, had trained as a young candidate with Mr. FRITH in one of the many campaign colleges. He appreciated Mr. FRITH's brand of Liberalism. "He understood the private sector very well, but he also had a huge heart and understood that not only did you have to produce wealth in this society, you have to be fair to those who have fewer advantages."
But what really endeared Mr. FRITH to him was the role he played in the turbot wars when Mr. Tobin was federal minister of fisheries. Members of the fishing community in Cornwall started flying Canadian flags because they were upset by the over-fishing that they themselves were seeing by the Spanish and the Portuguese and they sympathized with Canada's position. Mr. FRITH went to visit them to say thank you. "He did a marvellous job," said Mr. Tobin. "He was such an articulate, persuasive personality that he could walk into a community he had never been in before in his life at a time like that and really embody Canada in the most positive sense of the word."
When asked if he had a favourite memory of Mr. FRITH, he said, "I see this big tall guy in a bow tie with chiselled features, big grin, flashing eyes looking for the next big cause, bare knuckles and all, to embrace. And that's Royce."
If Mr. FRITH was disappointed when he was recalled in 1996 to make way for former Cabinet minister Roy MacLaren to succeed him in London, he kept it to himself.
The Vancouver law firm now called Borden Ladner Gervais invited him to join them as a consultant on British and European affairs. The climate was better than in Ottawa and he had Friends there, especially former Senators John Nichol and George Van Roggen. He quickly became the centre of a social circle that revolved around the Vancouver Symphony, the board of Pearson College and the Vancouver Club. "Royce would walk in every day," said David Smith, "looking like he had just come off Jermyn Street, tailored by Savile Row. I never needed to book anything [when I went to Vancouver], all I had to do was go to the Vancouver Club and there he would be looking like a million dollars."
Mr. FRITH's daughter Valerie also moved to Vancouver where she taught for a number of years in the publishing program at Simon Fraser University. He never remarried, although he had many close women Friends, most notably Hillary Haggan in recent years.
Royce Herbert FRITH was born in Lachine, Quebec, on November 12, 1923. He died of pneumonia as a complication of malignant myeloma at home in Vancouver on March 17, 2005. He was 81. He is survived by his daughter Valerie and her family.
