Ottawa's Cambodian community loses mother and 4 children to fire
Three members of close-knit family escaped alive from blaze above store
By Gloria GALLOWAY, Wednesday, April 6, 2005, Page A9
Ottawa -- Firefighters raced repeatedly up a narrow, smoke-filled staircase early yesterday to save six members of a close-knit Cambodian family who were trapped inside the burning apartment above their grocery store.
In the end, the rescue efforts were mostly futile. Five of the six -- a woman described as pillar of her community and four of her children -- died in the blaze. Only a son-in-law who had arrived recently from Cambodia was pulled from the inferno alive.
He was taken to hospital in critical condition along with his father-in-law, Bacara THACH. Witnesses: say Mr. THACH rescued his one-year-old grand_son, Sipheng, and tried to return for the others before the flames drove him back.
The patriarch tore across the street shortly before 2 a.m. to ask a neighbour to call firefighters back to the street in this city's Chinatown where, a short time earlier, they had extinguished a major fire less than a block away.
The trucks returned in less than three minutes.
"On arrival they encountered heavy smoke, heat and flames," Ottawa's Deputy Fire Chief Jim ULLETT said at a news conference yesterday. A frantic Mr. THACH told them that six of his loved ones were on the second floor of the small blazing building.
Some of the fire crew headed to the back while the others raced up the stairs beside the grocery store entrance.
"The crew that went up the front stairs came upon the first occupant, who they removed to the street, went back in the second time and encountered two more which they brought back down," Deputy Chief ULLETT said.
At the same time, the crew that had climbed the fire escape at the rear of the building were reaching in through a window and removing a fourth victim. That left two still missing.
"They went back in," Deputy Chief ULLETT said. "By now the fire had increased in intensity so they were putting themselves at great risk. They found one, brought that occupant out, went back in, fought the fire for approximately three or four minutes, found a sixth victim and brought that victim out."
Some of the firefighters continued to battle the blaze while others tried to resuscitate the unmoving bodies. But by the time paramedics arrived, it was apparent that the task was hopeless. All five were declared dead at the scene.
"This was two major fires back-to-back, something that happens very rarely," Deputy Chief ULLETT said. "It was a very difficult night and I am very proud of each and every one of them that was on that scene."
Fire investigators say the blaze, the worst in Ottawa in at least 40 years, started in a front bedroom. The fact that several of the victims were found beside a window suggests they may have been searching for an exit when they succumbed to the smoke or flames.
By late morning, photos of a smiling Kol Yan THACH, her daughter Lily, 23, and sons Gary, 14, Danny, 13, and Sonny, 12, had been taped to an exterior wall across the street from the fire that left the floor above the family grocery little more than a brick shell encasing charred rubble. Below the pictures, there was a small pile of bouquets.
The family had been in Canada for about 20 years and all of the boys were born here, as was Lily's one-year-old son, who was taken to hospital with burns in critical condition after Mr. THACH was able to save him.
A steady stream of onlookers, many of them youngsters who had attended Glashan Public School with the three THACH boys, came to stare at the remnants of the apartment and the photos of their lost Friends. Some wiped away tears. Others talked about the athletic young men who loved basketball and were "all-stars" on the school volleyball team.
"They were really nice. I argued with them a lot, but we would chill," said Jeffrey GENERO, 13, who admitted having the occasional falling out with the brothers. "I just became Friends with them again and now I just found out that they're dead."
Money HEANG, an outreach worker for the Cambodian community, was dispatched by the Somerset West Community Centre to help those who were distraught over the loss.
The grocery store was the only one of its kind in the neighbourhood run by Cambodians, she said.
"They were a focal point for news about the community," Ms. HEANG said. They were also known for the fundraising drives they organized to help people back in their home country.
Ms. HEANG, who shopped at the store regularly, said Mrs. THACH "was very friendly. She was a very nice woman."
Yesterday, the fire marshal was still trying to sort out what the caused the tragedy, but two theories were emerging.
Electricity to some of the block was cut off during the earlier blaze, so there was speculation that a candle could have ignited the fire.
A fire inspection of the grocery store in July, 2003, prompted by the family's desire to get a food licence, turned up some unapproved and deteriorating wiring. That was repaired, but the condition of the wiring in the apartment upstairs was unknown.

Ottawa fire kills 5 in family
3 rescued from blaze in flat over grocery store
Man, son-in-law and grand_son in critical condition
By Andrew MILLS, Staff Reporter
Ottawa -- As fire ripped through his family's apartment over their grocery store, Macara THACH was able to rescue his grand_son before turning back into the blaze to try to save more of his family.
But the flames had grown and they seared THACH's hair, hands and face, and he was forced to retreat.
Minutes later, firefighters arrived; they were able to save only one of THACH's six other family members, his son-in-law, Bunny Svay, 25. Five died at the scene.
They were identified by Friends and neighbours as THACH's wife, Kol Yan THACH, their daughter Lily, 23, and their sons Gary, 14, Danny, 13, and Sunny, 12.
Police have not yet confirmed the names.
THACH, his son-in-law and grand_son, Sy PHENG, thought to be about 14 months, all were in the hospital yesterday in critical condition.
Firefighters do not know what caused the blaze that ripped through the Mekong Grocery and upstairs three-bedroom flat, but are calling it Ottawa's worst fire in memory.
Crews attacked the fire from both ends of the two-storey building in Ottawa's Chinatown district. One crew ventured up the front stairs twice, removing three victims.
"At the same time, the crews went in through the back and encountered a victim, said deputy chief Jim ULLETT. " The crews went back in...
"They found one, brought that occupant out, went back in and fought the fire for approximately three or four minutes, found the sixth victim and brought that victim out."
The victims were pronounced dead at the scene, said paramedics chief Anthony DI MONTE.
A family friend, Sao THOK, said the family had been in Canada about 20 years. Only their daughter, Lily, was born abroad, when THACH and his wife were living in a refugee camp on the Thai-Cambodian border.
The young couple had joined many other Cambodians who fled fighting between the Khmer Rouge and Vietnamese troops. For years, they shuffled from refugee camp to refugee camp, waiting to be admitted to another country, Sao THOK said.
Eventually the family made it to Canada and for the past few years their livelihood has depended on the Mekong Grocery, an Asian convenience store named after the river that snakes through their homeland. The shop was a mom-and-pop business, customers said, where all family members were expected to pitch in.
Three weeks ago, Lily's husband, a man she had married in Cambodia a few years ago, arrived in Canada for the first time, neighbours said yesterday.
There was a party to mark his arrival and some of this city's 1,500 or so Cambodians attended.
When the fire broke out sometime before 1: 40 a.m. yesterday, there were eight people living in the tiny apartment above the Mekong Grocery.
Everyone would have been in bed: the three boys in their bunk beds in the living room, Lily, her husband and the toddler, in the cramped back bedroom and Macara and Kol YAN, both in their mid-50s, each in their tiny rooms in the front, said Guerin GARVEY, 13, a friend of the boys.
The fire probably started in one of the front bedrooms, said Trevor BAIN of the Ontario Fire Marshall's Office.
That office and the Ottawa police arson squad are investigating the blaze.

Kin mourn crash victims
By Dana BORCEA, Canadian Press, Mon., December 26, 2005
Hamilton -- Emily PORTO's Christmas presents sat under the tree. Her broken-hearted parents didn't know what to do with them.
The 10-year-old girl was one of four family members killed in a horrific car accident late last week.
Emily's mother, Laurie, said she is overcome with grief, but grateful for the outpouring of support her family has received in the days following the tragedy.
"This reminds me what Christmas is all about," she said.
This year was Laurie and her husband Rocky's turn to host the Porto family's annual Christmas Eve party. There was no celebration, but Saturday evening the couple welcomed a steady stream of Friends, family and well-wishers to their Hamilton home.
"I've been rendered useless these past few days," said Laurie from her home on Christmas Eve. "But my tables have been replenished with food and drinks and gifts. My house has not been empty."
Emily's aunt, Vivian PORTO, was driving the van carrying her niece as well as two of her own children, Azzadine, 10, and Francesco, 13, back from a hockey game in nearby Guelph when she hit a snow drift and spun out of control before being broadsided by an oncoming sport utility vehicle.
Emily's aunt, Lisa ULRICH, estimated that close to 200 people had come through the home to offer their condolences to both families.
She expects around 1,000 people to attend visitation and funeral services this week.
Among them will be members of Hamilton's Italian community, minor hockey families and colleagues from the textile, development and hospital industries the families are linked to.
"They've been coming out in droves," said ULRICH on Saturday, pointing to the line of parked cars spilling out of the driveway and down the street.
"To have a quiet, empty house -- especially at this time of the year -- would have made this even harder," she said.
Vivian also left behind two teenage boys, Riccardo and Amadeo.
Students from Emily's school, James MacDonald, delivered around 100 cards to the family.
"She was beautiful" and "She was an angel" were among the messages they wrote about their Grade 5 classmate.
At the nearby home of Vivian PORTO, neighbours were reeling from the loss. One woman was overcome by tears as she talked about the "incredible family."
Funeral services will be held Wednesday in Hamilton.

Crash kills 3 kids, mother
'She wasn't supposed to go,' 10-year-old's grieving aunt says
By Peter EDWARDS, Staff Reporter, Page A1
Hamilton -- Ten-year-old Emily PORTO loved to watch her cousin Francesco play hockey, and begged to watch his game on Thursday night, even though it would mean staying up a little late.
Emily's mother relented, and so Emily went to 13-year-old Francesco's elite-level game in Guelph with Francesco, his mother, Vivian PORTO, 43, and his sister, 10-year-old Azzidene.
They were all killed in a two-vehicle collision around 10: 45 p.m. Thursday along a deadly stretch of Highway 6, north of Parkside Dr.
Four people in a sport utility vehicle that collided with the PORTO minivan suffered potentially life-threatening injuries. Their identities have not been released, but they are a 40-year-old Cambridge man, who was driving, and a 38-year-old Cambridge woman and the man's 17-year-old son and 14-year-old daughter from Perth. They are all in serious condition in area hospitals.
Police blame bad weather for the collision.
"She wasn't supposed to go," Emily's aunt Lisa ULRICH said yesterday in an interview at Emily's home. "Emily got very excited about attending. She begged her mother to go. The cousins are very, very close."
Hanging behind her in the family garage was a wall of sports equipment for Emily and her family.
Their mother, Vivian, loved being a hockey mom, even though Francesco's membership on the triple-A elite level minor bantam Hamilton Junior Bulldogs meant several nights a week on the road.
When not caring for her four children -- including older boys Amadeo and Riccardo, who also play hockey -- Vivian PORTO ran three fabric stores.
"There was never any doubt that her commitment was to the children," ULRICH said. "It was hockey, hockey, hockey. She was a hockey mom."
Other family members were also devastated by the accident.
Emily's brother Gabriel, 3, still hadn't been told about her death yesterday.
Emily and Gabriel were thrilled earlier this month when they got to sit on the knee of Santa in a mall near their home, their grandmother Diana BORDONARO said.
BORDONARO stared at Emily's bicycle in disbelief, then said she loved to show pictures of Emily and her wide, distinctive smile to everyone she knew.
"She had a dimple on one cheek.... I bragged about her to everyone," her grandmother cried. "... I can't imagine this...
"I just took them to see Santa. It was wonderful."
BORDONARO said she doesn't know how to break the news to Gabriel, who's excited about Christmas.
"He never called her Emily," she said. "It was 'sister'... She became a little mother to him. She protected him."
Several people witnessed the accident near the intersection with Highway 5, including other members of the Junior Bulldogs and their parents.
Highway 6 has caught the attention of the regional coroner, Dr. David EDEN.
"We're very concerned about this and we'll look at an inquiry, but we're a long way from making that decision," EDEN said. "I travel that road and it's a very busy stretch of road."
The 24-kilometre stretch of road linking Highways 403 and 401 has been the scene of at least 20 fatal accidents since the early 1990s.
Residents and police blame a lack of barriers between the north and southbound lanes as well as the absence of snow fences to block snow drifts that blow in from surrounding open fields.
"The roads were generally good," said Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Cam WOOLLEY. " However, during the evening winds had picked up and there was blowing snow that had drifted along Highway 6. When (the victim's) van hit the snowdrift she lost control.
"She ended up in the northbound lanes sideways and into the path of the Blazer. Both vehicles were believed to be doing the speed limit of 80 km/h. So it was not survivable.
"The minivan was hit broadside and then pushed back into the guardrail."
Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs president Frank CASALE said he first heard of the accident at 8 yesterday morning and immediately set out to get grief counsellors for the team.
"I couldn't believe it," CASALE said. "We're all in shock. The team, the coaches, the executives are all grieving. He (Francesco) was a wonderful kid, a good hockey player."
Francesco's and Azzidene's dad and Vivian's husband, Sam, is a trainer on another of their teams where he has another son playing, CASALE said.
"I just don't know how he is coping with it all," CASALE said.
The funeral for all four PORTO family members will be 10: 30 a.m. Wednesday at Saint Margaret Mary Church. Funeral arrangements are being handled by the Friscolanti Funeral Chapel.

Girl's gifts still sitting under tree
Two families devastated by deadly crash
Locals describe Highway 6 as 'Killer 6'
By Dana BORCEA and Meredith MacLEOD, Torstar News Services, Hamilton Spectator
Hamilton -- Emily PORTO's Christmas presents sat under the tree. Her broken-hearted parents don't know what to do with them.
The 10-year-old girl was one of four family members killed in a horrific car accident late Thursday night.
Emily's mother, Laurie, said she is overcome with grief, but grateful for the outpouring of support her family has received in the days following the tragedy.
"This reminds me what Christmas is all about," she said.
Emily's aunt, Vivian PORTO, was driving the van carrying her niece as well as two of her own children, Azzadine, 10, and Francesco, 13, back from a hockey game in Guelph when she hit a snowdrift on Highway 6 and spun out of control before being broadsided by an oncoming sport utility vehicle.
The highway is nicknamed "Killer 6" by some local residents. The 24-kilometre stretch of road from Highway 403 to the 401 has been the scene of at least 20 fatal accidents since the early 1990s.
Residents and police blame a lack of barriers between the north and southbound lanes as well as the absence of snow fences to block snowdrifts that blow in from surrounding open fields.
A high volume of traffic was also cited as a contributing factor in the crash.
In response to Thursday night's accident, Dr. David EDEN, the regional coroner, said he is considering calling an inquest into the safety of that stretch of Highway 6.
Police agree the highway can be hazardous.
"Highway 6 can be an unforgiving highway," said Sgt. Cam WOOLLEY of the Ontario Provincial Police highway safety division.
Flamborough Councillor Margaret McCARTHY said the highway falls under the jurisdiction of the province's ministry of transportation. After hearing about the fatal crash, her office forwarded a request to the ministry to erect snow fences along the highway.
McCARTHY said residents have expressed concerns about the highway for years.
"It's a complicated piece of road," she said. "To suggest that there is an easy fix would be negligent."
Gary MISNER, a Freelton resident who travels Highway 6 every day, said the stretch where the PORTOs were killed used to be protected by a snow fence. He happened upon the accident minutes after it happened and said the area was the only snow-covered spot on Highway 6 that night. Strong winds had been blowing for hours, MISNER said.
Sudden drifts on the road, combined with a looming stoplight, make for a dangerous combination, he said.
MISNER said snow fences should be installed to prevent drifting snow from piling up on the highway.
He also said the speed limit should be reduced to 70 km/h and strictly enforced.
"There will be other big accidents along there," MISNER warned.
Emily's aunt, Lisa ULRICH, estimated that close to 200 people had come through the home to offer their condolences to both families. She expects about 1,000 people to attend visitation and funeral services early this week.
Among them will be members of Hamilton's Italian community, minor-hockey families, and family colleagues from the textile, development and hospital industries.
"They've been coming out in droves," ULRICH said on the weekend, pointing to the line of parked cars spilling out of the driveway and down the street.
"To have a quiet, empty house -- especially at this time of the year -- would have made this even harder," she said.
On Saturday, family gathered at the home of Vivian's parents, Anna and Adriano SPALLACCI, with Father Bill TRUSZ, a pastor at Saint Margaret Mary Church.
"They prayed for those that died and for those who survived," said TRUSZ. " They are deeply stricken and just taking it one hour at a time."
Visitation for Vivian, Francesco, Azzadine and Emily PORTO will be held today and tomorrow from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the Friscolanti Funeral Chapel on 43 Barton St. E., Hamilton.
The funeral for all four will be held at 10: 30 a.m. on Wednesday at Saint Margaret Mary Church at 20 Idlewood Ave., Hamilton.

'Kind family' mourned at service
Mom, two kids and niece killed
Driving back from son's hockey game
By Peter EDWARDS, Staff Reporter
Hamilton -- Mourners filled the 800 seats in Saint Margaret Mary Church on Hamilton Mountain almost an hour before yesterday's funeral began for four family members killed in an accident on their way home from a hockey game.
There were an estimated 1,450 mourners by the time the service began for Vivian PORTO, 43; two of her children, Francesco, 13, and Azzadine, 10; and her niece, Emily PORTO, 10.
Some of the people who couldn't find a seat lined the walls of the Roman Catholic church for the two-hour service. Others listened through speakers in an adjoining church meeting room. A few who couldn't find room in the church stood outside in the rain.
Inside, members of the Hamilton Junior Bulldogs team stood as an honour guard, wearing white hockey jerseys with Francesco's Number 11 stitched on the left shoulder.
"This is a tragedy," Bishop Gerard BOURGIE told the congregation. "We cannot make sense of it. All we can do is trust in God and support one another."
Father William TRUSCZ noted that hundreds of Friends of the family have visited the PORTOs since the two-car accident last Thursday night on Highway 6, north of Highway 5, as the PORTOs returned from Francesco's AAA game in Guelph.
Police blamed bad weather for the accident. Some area residents have urged snow barriers be erected along a 24-kilometre stretch of Highway 6 between Highways 401 and 403 that has claimed at least 20 lives in the past 15 years.
"Your kind presence is a silent testimony that this kind family is being held in the community's embrace," TRUSCZ said, asking mourners to remember to continue to show their love for surviving PORTO family members.
Emily PORTO's aunt, Lisa ULRICH, recalled in a eulogy the 10-year-old's gentle, one-dimpled smile. "Her inclination was to heal hurt, never to inflict it," ULRICH said.
Family friend Joe MANCINELLI told the congregation he considered Vivian PORTO to be a "supermom" who worked at a family store in the daytime and spent her evenings helping her children with schoolwork or taking them to soccer or hockey games or family functions.
"She loved family and loved everything that family stood for," MANCINELLI said. "... She was devoted to her children's activities. Never missed a game and loved every minute of it."
MANCINELLI recalled Francesco as an honours student with a special ability in math, and a love of soccer as well as hockey. Azzadine had an uncanny resemblance to her mother, both physically and in spirit, MANCINELLI said. "She was a determined young lady, with bright eyes and an angelic smile," MANCINELLI told the congregation.
Vivian PORTO and her high-school sweetheart, Sam PORTO, also had two older teenaged boys, both also members of the Junior Bulldogs organization. Sam PORTO is a manager with the Bulldogs.
Emily PORTO had a 3-year-old brother, Gabriel.
MANCINELLI, who knew Vivian PORTO for more than three decades, told the church service he was sure she could appreciate the outpouring of support. However, he said she would urge her Friends and family to go on enjoying life.
"I think that she would say, 'That's enough (grieving) now. We're all in heaven.'"

John ARNUP, Lawyer And Judge (1911-2005)
Ontario Court of Appeal judge pioneered legal aid and was known for scrupulous integrity, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, October 29, 2005, Page S9
As a litigator, judge and advocate, John ARNUP spoke quietly, wrote eloquently and acted with integrity. He argued more than 50 cases in the Supreme Court of Canada, handed down 200 written judgments in his 15 years as a judge on the Ontario Court of Appeal, and pioneered universal legal aid in Ontario.
Eight years ago when the Ontario Legal Aid Plan was in danger of collapsing in the wake of Mike Harris's Common Sense Revolution, Mr. ARNUP, then 86, addressed his colleagues in a spontaneous speech that is still remembered for its persuasive eloquence. He expressed his abiding belief that providing legal assistance is a "matter of human rights and common decency." And then he rose to the charge. The government of Ontario seemed to "regard legal aid as equivalent to another form of welfare," he said. "And if welfare is going to be cut and public housing is going to be cut and health services are going to be cut, obviously legal aid is no different and it must be cut. This attitude has got to be fought on every front... I am going to stand on [the good ship Legal Aid] until it is rehabilitated or it goes down beneath the waters, but I am not going to give up."
John Douglas ARNUP was the eldest of six children of Jesse Henry ARNUP, a Toronto Methodist minister (who served as moderator of the United Church of Canada in 1945-46) and his wife Ella Maud (LEESON.)
He went to McMurrich Public School and Oakwood Collegiate Institute where, despite his slight frame and short stature, he excelled at basketball and hockey. He also edited the school magazine and was valedictorian of his graduating class.
Mr. ARNUP went on to Victoria College in the University of Toronto. A passion for playing bridge exacted an academic toll and he had to transfer out of honours. It was probably the last time in his life that he wasn't properly prepared for an examination. He majored in English and history, played softball, directed two musical productions and worked as feature editor of Acta Victoriana, the college paper, as well as sports editor of The Varsity.
He graduated with a bachelor's degree in 1932, followed by a law degree from Osgoode Hall in 1935, where he finished first in his class. He articled at Mason, Foulds, Davidson, Carter & Kellock (now Weir and Foulds) and was invited to join the firm after his call to the Ontario bar in 1935.
About this time he met Dora ULRICHSSEN, an executive assistant to the president of Lever Brothers. They were married on August 2, 1941, and eventually had four daughters, Judith, Carol, Katherine and Jane.
Historian Katherine ARNUP, a professor at Carleton University in Ottawa, told mourners at her father's memorial service how she and her sisters learned "the rules of evidence" around the dining room table. "We would engage in spirited discussions about politics and history -- arguments Dad always won, often by leaving the table to get the Encyclopedia Britannica, to substantiate his point. You learned never to fake it -- to know your facts and to let them speak for themselves."
Mr. ARNUP's poor eyesight made him eligible to serve in the armed forces during the Second World War. Instead, he worked as a civilian lawyer for the Wartime Prices and Trade Board.
He was named a King's Counsel in 1950, and became senior partner at Arnup, Foulds, Weir Boeckh and Morris in the mid-1950s, some 20 years after he had joined the firm. He had the earning power to help his younger brother Bill through medical school and to help his parents spend winters in Florida. He also acquired a 1939 Plymouth. This vehicle, which was the first car owned by any ARNUP, conveyed Friends and family to the cottage and newlyweds on honeymoons.
Allan McNiece AUSTIN, known to his Friends as "Bunny" or "Mac," arrived at the law firm as an articling student in 1952 and worked with Mr. ARNUP as a junior, an associate and a partner. In his eulogy, Mr. AUSTIN remarked: "Working for John was a pleasure because he was brighter than anybody else in the office, he worked harder than anybody else and his partners' meetings were infrequent, efficient and short."
As a lawyer, Mr. ARNUP had a quiet sense of humour and a sharp memory. During an examination for discovery 50 years ago, Mr. AUSTIN asked why a particular lawyer asked so many questions of fact. "That is his technique," replied Mr. ARNUP. "He turns over every stone on the beach." At trial, some two years later, the same lawyer was cross-examining the same witness. It was mid-afternoon and Mr. AUSTIN was suffering from the soporific effects of a good lunch. Poking him gently in the ribs, Mr. ARNUP whispered, " AUSTIN, wake up. He's getting to our part of the beach."
George FINLAYSON, now retired from the Court of Appeal, also worked for Mr. ARNUP as a junior in the mid-1950s. "He gave me a lot of responsibility and a lot of support and made sure I got credit for everything that I did. I found him a very good mentor."
He also acted against Mr. ARNUP many times over the years. "The nice thing about him was that he was always a gentleman. You didn't have to worry about him taking advantage of your inexperience," said Mr. FINLAYSON.
"He was a very straight-forward person. He laid his cards on the table and beat you on merit."
By the late 1950s, Mr. ARNUP was a leading counsel on just about any subject in civil law, known for the thoroughness of his research and the good sense and logic of his arguments, according to John MORDEN, another retired judge of the Court of Appeal.
They overlapped on the bench for seven years (from 1978-1985). "He was businesslike and courteous at all times. He had wide legal knowledge and he was efficient in conducting the hearings and circulating his judgments," said Mr. MORDEN. "It didn't matter what area of the law, he did whatever was required to get on top of it and to produce a very lucid, readable judgment. "
Mr. ARNUP also worked diligently on behalf of his profession. He was elected a bencher (or director) of the Law Society of Upper Canada (the governing body or Convocation of lawyers in Ontario) in 1952 and served as treasurer (the equivalent of president) from 1963-66. He had to step down when he was appointed a judge in 1970, but became active again as a life bencher when he retired from the court at 75.
"John ARNUP may have been the most effective treasurer the law society every had," according to Mr. FINLAYSON. Even as a bencher, he was very effective in resolving a conflict between the University of Toronto and the law society over who should be responsible for legal education -- the academy or the profession. "He got the parties together and got them to settle their differences and the law society stopped running its own law school and moved up to York University," said Mr. FINLAYSON.
His major achievement, however, was designing, negotiating and implementing a universal system of legal aid in Ontario. In his speech to Convocation in April of 1997, Mr. ARNUP remembered how it came about.
In the fall of 1963, shortly after he had become treasurer of the law society, he approached Fred CASS, then attorney-general of Ontario, and said: "We have a voluntary plan but it is not good enough.... If you put up the money, we will put up the people and we will run the plan, but you will always have somebody -- particularly from your financial department -- sitting with us and reporting to the government of the day."
A few days later, Mr. CASS and Mr. ARNUP went to see Leslie FROST, then premier of Ontario "and in succinct terms we put the proposition to him," said Mr. ARNUP. "He thought about it for about 15 seconds and he said: 'Go ahead.' "
After he retired from the bench, Mr. ARNUP wrote Middleton: The Beloved Judge, a biography of William Edward MIDDLETON , a former justice of the Supreme Court of Ontario. It was published by McClelland and Stewart in conjunction with the law society in 1988.
Mr. ARNUP remained in robust health well into his 90s, curling, participating as a bencher, and avidly following national and global affairs. The recipient of several honorary degrees, he was made an officer of the Order of Canada in 1989.
There were sorrows as well as accolades. Mrs. ARNUP suffered a brain aneurysm in 1990 and has been in ill health ever since. His daughter Carol died of cancer in 1997. Two years ago, Mr. ARNUP developed myelodysplastic syndrome, a bone-marrow disease that disrupts the production of blood cells.
The last comment Katherine ARNUP made in her eulogy was about how her father made his children feel safe. "You could always call on him for help, advice or wise counsel," she said.
Afterward, she realized that he made "everybody" feel safe. "You knew when John ARNUP was on the bench you were going to get a fair hearing and that legal aid was in good hands," she said yesterday. "He had old-fashioned qualities of decency and integrity."
John Douglas ARNUP was born in Toronto on May 24, 1911. He died on October 5. He was 94. He is survived by his wife, Dora, three daughters, four grandchildren and three siblings.
