He will be fondly remembered by his sister Betty FORD and his Guelph Family and by Mil BOCKING, Bill ROMAN and the rest of his Calgary family. Jim was a second generation Scottish Canadian, born in Guelph, who joined the Ontario Provincial Police in 1945 - serving in Niagara Falls and St. Catharines - before being transferred to Toronto where he rose the top rank of Commissioner. Friends and police officers alike referred to him as 'Big Jim', not only because of his 6' 5' stature, but also because of his social and affable presence at police and social gatherings. Following his retirement, Jim organized the first Ontario Drinking and Driving Counter Measures Program - with civic committees in 53 Ontario municipalities. For the next ten years he served as the Honorary Lt. Col. and Col. of the 11th Field Artillery Regiment in Guelph.

Among highlights of his career, Jim was the founder of the Ontario Provincial Police's Anti-Rackets Branch which tackled white-collar crime, in particular the Great Canadian Art Fraud of Group-of-Seven art forgeries, which brought him into contact with famed artist A.J. CASSON, who became a lifelong friend. As Ontario's Director of Emergency Response, he was Senior Officer at the Mississauga train derailment and evacuation (largest peacetime evacuation in Canada). He was also Senior Officer investigating the crash of an Air Canada DC8 in Woodbridge which killed 109 people, and he successfully negotiated the release of a family kidnapped by a penitentiary escapee near London, Ontario.

Jim ERSKINE, Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner: 1920-2005
To A.Y. JACKSON, the man who cracked the Great Canadian Art Fraud case of 1964 was always 'my inspector.' The policeman known as 'Big Jim' went on to head the Ontario Provincial Police
By Carol COOPER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, June 10, 2005, Page S9
In November, 1962, Ontario Provincial Police officer Jim ERSKINE started on a new case. J. Russell HARPER, then curator of Canadian art at the National Gallery of Canada, had asked the force to investigate a flood of Canadian forgeries of the works of well-known artists, including the Group of Seven.
After a lot of dogged legwork, Mr. ERSKINE, appointed two years earlier as the Ontario Provincial Police's first head of its new anti-rackets squad, eventually cracked the case that came to be known as the Great Canadian Art Fraud.
It counts as only one highlight of Mr. ERSKINE's distinguished 38-year career with the Ontario Provincial Police. As well, he saw a hostage-taking incident successfully resolved, oversaw emergency response at the Mississauga train derailment and ended his career as the Ontario Provincial Police's commissioner.
Then premier William DAVIS appointed him commissioner, as well as head of a campaign begun in 1983 to end drinking and driving. "He was a professional police officer," Mr. DAVIS said. "It was his life. He was completely dedicated."
Mr. ERSKINE's break in the art-fraud came, according to a May, 1964, issue of Canadian Weekly, when a ruckus broke out at the Toronto art-auction house, Ward-Price. Some in attendance at a sale questioned the authenticity of Group of Seven works on offer. The scene led one purchaser of a work purportedly by Group of Seven artist J.E.H. MacDonald to take it to the Toronto Art Gallery, now the Art Gallery of Ontario, for authentication. When the purchase proved fake, the gallery informed Mr. ERSKINE, who immediately seized paintings and records from Ward-Price.
With the combined efforts of Mr. ERSKINE, artist A.J. CASSON and National Gallery conservator Dr. Nathan STOLOW, 91 paintings were confirmed as forgeries. The Ward-Price records showed that the fakes were sold on behalf of Leslie LEWIS, who operated a studio gallery at the back of Ward-Price. Mr. LEWIS had in turn obtained some of those works from another dealer, Neil SHARKEY.
Further investigation led to three painters, all of whom had created the works for other purposes and did not know their paintings were being passed off as being from more prominent artists. The two dealers pleaded guilty and were jailed.
A headline from a story about the fraud in an April, 1964, issue of Maclean's referred to Mr. ERSKINE as a "smart cop." As a result, Mr. ERSKINE came to be good Friends with some members of the Group of Seven, including A.J. CASSON, with whom he worked on the case. In addition, he was at Fred VARLEY's bedside at the artist's death and gained the confidence of A.Y. JACKSON.
Born in Guelph, Ontario, to Scottish immigrants, James Laird ERSKINE was the oldest of four children. His stonemason father worked on many buildings in and around the city, including some for the University of Guelph and the stone wall along the Niagara River.
Mr. ERSKINE obtained a Grade 10 education and, after serving underage in a field ambulance and medical corps and then an artillery reserve, joined the Royal Canadian Air Force, serving as a flight engineer on Lancaster bombers during the Second World War.
When stationed in England, Mr. ERSKINE was wounded twice, once while helping defuse bombs. One of the bombs exploded, Mr. ERSKINE blacked out and awoke to find himself among dead comrades.
Once on leave in London, he helped rescue children from a bombed school. Many students were killed or severely injured. "It took me years to get over that incident," he told the Guelph Daily Mercury in 2000. "I would wake up when I heard my own kids crying and break into a cold sweat."
Upon his return from the war in 1945, Mr. ERSKINE joined the Ontario Provincial Police. As well as solving the Great Canadian Art Fraud, he negotiated the release of four children being held hostage near London, Ontario, by an armed, escaped convict, Donald CLINE.
The con demanded cash but, according to one of Mr. ERSKINE's sons, Bruce, the incident took place on the weekend during a time with limited banking hours and no automated teller machines. To get the cash, Mr. ERSKINE borrowed it from a local businessman. After collecting it, the then-deputy commissioner and a colleague sat in the back of a cruiser and wrote down the serial numbers of each bill so they could be traced later.
During the incident, the hostage-taker held one of the children to the window, threatening to kill him. A gunshot sounded, the window shattered and the child fell. "My father said he felt sick to his stomach because he thought the child had died," the younger Mr. ERSKINE said.
In fact, the gunman had shot out the window above the child's head and simultaneously dropped the child.
Before handing over any money, Mr. ERSKINE insisted that three children be released. Once he received his booty, Mr. CLINE released the fourth and oldest child before taking off. He was later arrested.
At one point, tiring of the constant media swarm during the lengthy standoff, Mr. ERSKINE sent another officer out for coffee, instructing him to go in a marked cruiser with lights flashing, sirens screaming and tires screeching. The press fell for it and followed like bees to honey.
At 6 feet 5, Mr. ERSKINE was commonly known as "Big Jim." He also happened to look a lot like Errol Flynn. Once, in Los Angeles to bring an extradited man back home, he found himself constantly approached by curious women on the lookout for movie stars.
In November of 1979, 17 years after beginning on the art-fraud case, Mr. ERSKINE once again played an important part in a major Canadian event. A freight train carrying volatile materials including propane, chlorine and caustic soda left the tracks in Mississauga. Some of its chemical contents exploded and caught fire, releasing flames and vapours into the air early on a Sunday morning.
Fearing for the safety of the city's residents, officials ordered approximately 218,000 people from their homes in the largest peacetime evacuation in North American history. It lasted close to a week.
As director of emergency response, Mr. ERSKINE worked closely with Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCALLION during the disaster. That closeness became literal. The mayor had sprained her ankle and could not walk well, so Mr. ERSKINE picked her up and carried her to one of their daily press conferences.
Throughout his career, Mr. ERSKINE took on several leadership roles, including president of the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police in 1976. Appointed a deputy commissioner of the Ontario Provincial Police in 1975, he became commissioner in 1981. He retired in 1983.
As well as heading the drinking-driving campaign, Mr. ERSKINE was for 10 years the honorary colonel of the 11th Field Artillery Regiment.
With his death, the man who solved so many mysteries may have left one behind.
According to his son Bruce, Group of Seven artist A.Y. JACKSON always called Mr. ERSKINE "my inspector." Once, when the younger Mr. ERSKINE visited Mr. JACKSON, the artist confided that he knew the truth about the mysterious 1917 death of artist Tom THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and the only person he had ever told was "my inspector." When asked about it, Big Jim ERSKINE denied knowing anything.
James Laird ERSKINE was born on September 8, 1920, in Guelph, Ontario He died on May 22, 2005, in Mississauga. He was 84. He leaves his wife Jeanette, sons Bruce, Rick and Barry, and one sister. His oldest son Daniel died last fall.
