John BARRY, 74: Wine, women and a hint of danger
Tavern owner was the life of the party
But he also kept a gun under his pillow
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
There are so many stories about John BARRY that you think they all can't be true. And maybe they aren't, but they could be -- and that, in the end, is the whole point of knowing somebody like him.
His life was the stuff of movies -- the slick, finger-snapping movies of the past, where the drinks flowed and the smoke from the ever-present cigarettes rose, Bogey style, in smooth concentric circles from the corner of the mouth. The women were broads, showpieces in tight skirts and tighter angora sweaters; the men sat at their regular tables, doing deals, not all of them legal, as the sax player wailed.
But this was no celluloid romp with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. and the rest of the rat-pack reprobates. This was all happening in Toronto, at John Duck's Tavern, an Etobicoke watering hole by the lake since 1866, when ex-British soldier John DUCK opened an inn for stagecoach traffic.
After BARRY bought the place in 1963, it became a clubhouse for men who, like BARRY, preferred to sit with their backs to the wall. Bikers came there; so did off-duty cops. There were days the parking lot was filled with cars bearing Michigan licence plates, belonging to the men in thousand-dollar suits up from Detroit for business meetings in BARRY's upstairs office.
Aulden GELDART was the John Duck bouncer and club manager for 16 years. At 6-foot-2 and 250 pounds, he had the bulk and chops to be able to evict a whole posse of Vagabond bikers from the place. But he said he hated that his boss often packed a gun. "John always carried a semi-automatic, always in the back of his belt, and when he went to bed at night it was under his pillow," he said.
For safety, BARRY had underground parking for his Caddy; he also had a pair of dogs -- variously described as Doberman, American bull terrier or Bouvier, but big dogs, at least 150 pounds each, GELDART said -- that cost him $1,200 each. Most remember one called Boomer.
There were always whispers BARRY might have been a made man, a wise guy, even a hit man. GELDART said there were plenty of Toronto cops "after" BARRY, but his ex-boss was too smart for them. Former police chief William McCORMACK was a homicide investigator in those days and he said he'd remember if BARRY were involved in anything illegal. He doesn't, so it's likely BARRY wasn't.
"I always thought that talk was a lot of bulls -- -," said Rory ROBERTSON, who tended bar between 1969 and 1972. "But John knew a lot of people and I used to think some of them were rounders."
The only thing that most of his Friends and customers cared about was that BARRY -- who died November 12 at the age of 74 -- was a charming guy, a fun guy, the ultimate party guy.
He was a regular at Bardi's Steak House downtown. After hours, he and his boys would take over a private room at Gatsby's on Church St. Every night, it was red wine, and rum and Coke. Every night, it was steak, rare, with a side order of mushrooms. Every night, no one else ever got to pick up the cheque. Maybe that's why someone dubbed him "the old guy," but he liked it and the moniker stuck, even though he was only seven years older than ROBERTSON.
With his wife May and three children safely stashed away in Brampton, BARRY lived upstairs at John Duck's, also the scene of many a party.
"It was a typical bachelor pad," said his daughter Shandra BARRY. "Black leather. Red carpet. Party Central. It was his private club. The joke was that if the apartment door was locked, you don't knock, you don't interrupt the party going on inside."
Women loved him -- not just because he was movie-star handsome and charming and had that glint in his eye, but also because he was a lover who listened as if they were the only person in the world.
The man was charismatic, a great host who transformed the Humber House -- the name of the tavern when BARRY bought it -- into a modern-day legend, the watering hole of celebrities, including CFRB's long-time morning man, Wally CROUTER, country musician Gordie Tapp and the star athletes of the day. The Argos were regulars; so was coach Leo Cahill and three Miami Dolphins players he lured north to a new football league he tried to start, a couple of boxing champs and some Leafs.
The place was known for its Saturday jazz. "If you weren't inside by noon, you couldn't get a seat," ROBERTSON said. The late and hard-living Toronto Sun columnist, Paul RIMSTEAD, often sat at the drums; Diamond Lil from the Skyline Hotel would belt out the songs.
One day ROBERTSON noticed three guys coming in the door who turned out to be members of The Drifters, of Under the Boardwalk fame, and they did a turn at the mike.
"I don't know how much John knew about music, but he liked the way we talked, acted and the atmosphere we created. He liked fun. He wanted to be around, laughing and scratching, baby," said Bruce JAMES, who used to play the sax on those Saturday afternoons.
BARRY was born into one of the leading families of Sudbury; his father was in real estate and politics, made and lost three fortunes and died a very wealthy man, according to Jonquil FURSE, BARRY's sister. When BARRY was about 10 years old, he decided he didn't like attending Scollard Hall, a private school in North Bay, so he hired a taxi to take him home to Sudbury. His father paid the bill.
"John was very electric," FURSE said. "He was a chameleon, into everything, then off."
He was also her favourite brother, who took her fiancé, George FURSE, aside the day they were to be married in a very haute Westmount ceremony and told the astonished groom that if he ever laid a hand on his favourite baby sister, he'd "bust me up bad."
"He was very Runyonesque," George FURSE said, recalling how BARRY then pulled out a massive roll of money -- "I'd never seen that before except in the movies" -- and counted out four $100 bills from the top. "This oughta help you on the honeymoon," he barked.
"He was playing the part," his sister insisted.
After short stints in Sudbury as a miner and owner-operator of a gas station, BARRY hit the States, where his family believes he worked as a boxing promoter and a front man booking gigs for black singers and groups.
Later he owned a Mimico film studio, a limousine company and the company that booked all of the big acts into the Canadian National Exhibition's Grandstand shows.
His daughter Shandra said she remembers being driven in one of her father's limos to meet The Monkees backstage; other acts he brought to Toronto included Sonny and Cher, Red Skelton, Bob Hope, The Jackson Five, The Osmonds and Johnny Cash.
BARRY never stopped making deals. For awhile he owned a gold mine in British Columbia and a company called Iomech Ltd., and held patents for various water purification systems. Every Sunday, when he would drive to Brampton to see his family, he'd take them out for a drive to look at the latest country estate or property he was going to move them to.
"My mother just laughed. Every week it was a new place, a new deal," Shandra said. "He was the wildest ride in the amusement park."
All three children came to work at John Duck's after their mother died in 1979, and Shandra and her brother Jon were there March 5, 1988, when the party ended and BARRY closed the doors for the last time.
"He had it for 25 years; it was a huge part of his life," she said. "It was like a death in the family."
BARRY subsequently lived in several lofts around town, cutting out smoking and cutting down his drinking in later years, but he was diagnosed with esophagal cancer about a year ago. He didn't want people to know he was sick, and when he was hospitalized he didn't want people to visit him. Many did anyway.
His family is erecting a gravestone with the words "The Old Guy" and his favourite saying: "When I was here, I was here."

Ian SCOTT, Lawyer And Politician: (1934-2006)
An Ontario politician with the air of a statesman, he was the social conscience of David Peterson's Liberal cabinet, writes Sandra MARTIN. In 1994, he suffered a devastating stroke that left him paralyzed but unbowed
By Sandra MARTIN with files by the late Donn DOWNEY, Page S9
Lawyer, civil-rights advocate and politician, Ian SCOTT had a silver tongue, a prodigious brain and an encompassing empathy. He also faced enormous hardships: His partner died of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome and, six months later, he suffered a devastating stroke that robbed him of mobility and his ability to speak. He refused to accept his infirmity and spent the next dozen years retraining his wayward speaking skills with the same determination that he had exerted pleading cases before the court or arguing public policy around the cabinet table or in the Ontario Legislature.
"He was one of the most eloquent speakers, and that was what made the stroke such a cruel twist of fate," said his old friend, Roy McMURTRY, Chief Justice of Ontario. "But he never gave up and he was an inspiration to all of us."
On the public front, he will be remembered as the Ontario attorney-general who, next to the premier himself, put the Liberal stamp on David PETERSON's government between 1985 and 1990, the years when the party spectacularly won, then lost, the reins of power in Ontario. At the time, it was difficult to find an important provincial initiative that did not carry the odour of Mr. SCOTT's all-too frequent cigarettes.
Ian SCOTT was the social conscience of the Liberal cabinet and emerged immediately as a cabinet leader when the Liberals took office with a minority government in 1985. Long before his election as a Liberal, he had had ties with the New Democratic Party, and he combined this with his powers of persuasion to negotiate a deal with the New Democrats that formally ended 43 years of Tory rule in Ontario.
Mr. SCOTT, Mr. PETERSON, Robert Nixon (treasurer) and Sean Conway (education minister) became known as the four horsemen of what started out to be a reform government. He spearheaded the attack on doctors to end extra billing and was the government's counsel against the free-trade agreement. After a period of soul searching, he came out in favour of the Meech Lake constitutional deal, although he was among the first to warn of its weaknesses.
"He was a colossus of provincial politics," said Mr. PETERSON. "He had an intellectual cachet and wit, an advocacy that was second to none, a capacity for very hard work, and he was cunning. He knew how to get what he wanted."
Mr. SCOTT was a superb counsel, one of the best of his generation, said Judge McMURTRY. "He had a marvellous career as a lawyer and contributed greatly politically." Commenting on Mr. SCOTT's accomplishments as attorney- general, Mr. McMURTRY mentioned the merger of county, district and high courts, the process for appointing provincial court judges and his respect for individual and human rights.
During his tenure as attorney-general, Mr. SCOTT "utterly transformed Ontario's justice system, and played an indispensable role in constitutional talks, and otherwise, in the life of his government," current Attorney-General Michael Bryant said in a statement yesterday. "He introduced Ontario's first Freedom of Information Act, brought in North America's first pay equity legislation and created an independent panel to recommend judicial appointments to ensure only the most qualified candidates were appointed to the bench. Mr. SCOTT also amended the Ontario Human Rights Code to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation."
George Smitherman, Ontario Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, had a more personal observation. "I loved Ian SCOTT. As a politically active gay man coming out in the mid-'80s, he was an inspiration to me. I'll miss being his member of provincial parliament, and I am resigned to never quite filling his shoes. I have lost a friend and it makes me profoundly sad."
Ian Gilmour SCOTT came from a distinguished Irish Catholic family of lawyers and politicians, including Sir Richard SCOTT, a proponent of separate school legislation, a speaker of the Legislative Assembly in Ontario and a cabinet minister in the governments of Edward Blake and Alexander Mackenzie and an influential senator during the Manitoba school debate in the 1890s. The eldest of six children of Ottawa lawyer Cuthbert SCOTT and his wife, Audrey (née GILMOUR,) Mr. SCOTT was born in the middle of the Depression. He went to Holy Cross convent, then Ashbury College.
His younger sister, Martha SCOTT, a fundraising consultant for the private sector, says he always knew he was gay. He never came out to his parents, but she says they probably suspected his sexual orientation. "They adored him, unreservedly," she said yesterday. Nevertheless, Mr. SCOTT admitted in a 1997 interview with Steve Paikin on TVOntario that his homosexuality had forced him to "compartmentalize" his personal and professional lives.
A gifted student, Mr. SCOTT entered Saint Michael's College at the University of Toronto at 17 and graduated with an honours degree in 1955. It was at university, probably in 1951, that he met Roy McMURTRY. "We spent the summer of 1955 working in Quebec City and living with two francophone families, hoping to master the French language," Judge McMURTRY recalled yesterday. "I don't know if either of us achieved our goal, but I think we developed a sensitivity and respect for the cultural and linguistic aspirations of our Québécois Friends, which influenced our future political careers." (In 1975, Roy McMURTRY, as attorney-general, committed Ontario to a bilingual court system; a decade later, Mr. SCOTT "tied up the loose ends" to complete the process.)
Mr. SCOTT graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in 1959, then articled with William HOWLAND, who was later appointed chief justice of Ontario. A labour lawyer, he formed his own law firm, Cameron, Brewin and Scott, in Toronto and was appointed a Queen's Counsel in 1973. He also taught law at Queen's University (where he earned a masters of law degree), McGill University, the Law Society of Upper Canada and the U of T.
Bob Rae, who followed Mr. PETERSON as premier of Ontario, was Mr. SCOTT's student in a public-sector labour-relations course at the University of Toronto in 1976. "He was funny and engaging as a teacher," Mr. Rae said. "Then I knew him a little bit as a colleague, because we were both labour lawyers and he supported me financially when I ran federally in 1978."
Despite not being with a long-established Bay Street firm, Mr. SCOTT assembled an impressive list of clients, including the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. He was also the counsel for several high-profile public inquiries, acting for the Hospital for Sick Children during the Grange inquiry and counsel to the Commission of Inquiry into Certain Disturbances at Kingston Penitentiary, the Attorney-General's Task Force on Legal Aid and the royal commission into development of the Mackenzie Valley.
In 1981, he ran for the provincial Liberals against Margaret Scrivener in the riding of St. David, losing by just over 1,000 votes. He ran again in 1985 in a marquee contest against Julian Porter, a libel lawyer, chairman of the Toronto Transit Commission and scion of a prominent legal and political family in Ontario. This time, Mr. SCOTT won, the first Liberal to be elected in St. David in almost 50 years.
Mr. PETERSON, who had won the election with only 37.9 per cent of the vote, forged an alliance with Mr. Rae's New Democrats (which had received 23.8 per cent) to form what was called the Accord government. Mr. SCOTT served as attorney-general (succeeding Roy McMURTRY, who had held the post from 1975 to 1985 during William Davis's tenure as Conservative premier) until the Liberals were defeated by the New Democratic Party in 1990.
"He had consummate confidence in his own skills and abilities to persuade people to do what he wanted them to do, only because he was one of the greatest lawyers in the country," said Mr. PETERSON. "He could talk you into anything." He also liked the tension of public life, according to Mr. PETERSON, and he was steeped in a tradition of public service.
"To run a government," Mr. PETERSON said, "you need three guys a premier, a treasurer and an attorney-general." Mr. SCOTT, he said, "had an awful lot of influence" because of "his ability to speak, his advocacy, his passion, his Friendship with me." He "had his nose into every corner of that government because he was passionately interested in the policy issues and he was up to speed and he made contributions. He was a key guy at the cabinet table. People didn't trifle with him."
Sunday shopping, freedom of information, welfare changes and auto insurance all passed before Mr. SCOTT's tortoise-shell bifocals. Many New Democratic Party reforms, including changes to the court system, family law, native government and employment equity, were initiated under Mr. SCOTT's tenure as attorney-general. His portfolio also included responsibility for native affairs and women's issues, but he kept abreast of laws being drafted in all ministries, arguing that the province's chief law officer had to know the legal ramifications of any particular piece of legislation. One of his roles was to argue successfully before the Supreme Court in favour of protecting separate schools, in much the same way that his ancestor, Sir Richard, had done in the 19th century.
"He was a wonderful colleague, he was interested in everything, he was into everything," said Mr. Conway, a former cabinet colleague. "He was an outstanding attorney-general because he was an outstanding lawyer. He had a unique combination of sparkling intelligence and a wonderful curiosity."
Mr. SCOTT held on to his seat in the 1990 provincial election, but he didn't relish the opposition benches. He resigned in September of 1992 and returned to practising law at Gowling, Strathy and Henderson. Martha, his sister, said "he went into politics with an agenda, including law reform, and when he had accomplished that, he got out."
A confirmed smoker who had tried to kick the habit many times, he finally succeeded by wearing a nicotine patch. His partner, Kim YAKABUSKI, died of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome in 1993. In 1994, Mr. SCOTT suffered a devastating stroke that left him paralyzed on his right side and suffering from severe aphasia. The medical experts thought he would end up in an institution, but "he wasn't interested in that life," said his sister.
He insisted on going home, persuaded his cleaning woman to come every day to get him dressed, and worked doggedly with speech therapist Bonnie BERESKIN, who not only taught him how to speak again but trained a key group of his legal colleagues and cronies (including Stephen Goudge, Ian Rolland and Chris Paliare) to work with him every day on his speaking skills. He recovered about 20 per cent of his speech and expanded his communication skills to include facial expressions, hisses, nods and telling looks.
"Here was a guy who had absolutely everything -- school was a snap and work was a snap," said Martha SCOTT. " You don't really imagine a person who has everything would have the resilience to deal with that kind off bad luck." Her brother, she said, was determined to reclaim as much of his life as possible. "I worked my ass off," he once said about his post-stroke recovery in a sentence remarkable for its length and its passion.
"Our Friendship grew after his stroke," Mr. Rae said. "He had a lot of guts and determination and he lived his live with panache right to the end. The greatest affliction that you can imagine for an advocate and an orator like Ian is losing the capacity of speech, but even then he had a way of communicating that was totally disarming. Occasionally, he would only be able to say yes or no, but he could take in everything and he used his eyebrows and his sense of humour [to communicate]."
Mr. SCOTT collaborated with Neil McCORMICK on a memoir, To Make A Difference, in 2001. He continued to have lunch with Friends in restaurants, using a scooter to get about town, and to attend the symphony. But, in the past couple of years, his health problems increased and he finally decided to let nature take its inevitable course.
Ian Gilmour SCOTT was born in Ottawa on July 13, 1934. He died in his sleep in Toronto yesterday after refusing treatment for a variety of illnesses, including cancer. He was 72. Predeceased by his partner, Kim YAKABUSKI, he leaves his five siblings and their families. The funeral will be held at Saint Michael's Cathedral in Toronto at 10: 30 a.m. on Friday.

A young man's murder still matters in T.O.
By Rosie DIMANNO
Sixteen police constables, maintaining a careful four-foot distance from each other, set off on a bright and crisp day to conduct a grid search of a Scarborough field that lies between two elementary schools.
Just another Sunday morning in the city, but increasingly the occasion for the launching of murder investigations, trying to make sense out of another bloody mess arising from the evening before.
These officers are looking for… anything, although the instructions delivered emphasize the possibility of a small cellphone out there somewhere.
No such phone -- possibly belonging to the 17-year-old male victim whose remains have already been removed to the morgue -- was discovered.
This was not a shooting, but it is most definitely a homicide, Toronto's 10th murder in 2006.
Such has become the grim frequency of death by the gun in Toronto that it comes as something of a homicide throwback when murder by other means occurs when the deceased is a young male.
An autopsy this morning will likely determine cause of death. A cursory examination of the body yesterday was sufficient to reveal what was so palpably evident -- this teenager had suffered blunt trauma injuries, primarily about the head, with evidence indicating the unfortunate young man may have been beaten first and run over by a vehicle afterwards.
A white van was seen driving across the field late Saturday night and fresh tread marks on the ground reinforce that scenario. Police are looking for that van -- make and model unknown -- but confident they will find it.
"I believe this one is going to come together shortly," Det. John BIGGERSTAFF told The Star last night. "The van's going to show up, the pieces will all fall into place. It's not like a shooting, which are usually harder to piece together."
The victim is Kevin PERSAUD, a teenager who had been working a full-time job, living at home with his parents, who were in devastated shock yesterday. There is no evidence Persaud was ever "ganged-up," which is what comes immediately to mind when young men are murdered in Toronto these days. Nor is there any suggestion that this crime might have been provoked by ethnic grudges in a neighbourhood where youths of Southeast Asian descent are known to congregate, groups that have clashed violently before.
"I'm pretty sure that gang activity of any kind was not an issue here," said BIGGERSTAFF.
So what was the "issue"? Because a young man, little more than a boy really, is dead. And, as BIGGERSTAFF noted, "this was not a random encounter, it was a planned and intentional act."
And, because every homicide matters. This is still a city where murders matter and victims have names.
There are witnesses: who saw somebody running here on Saturday night, just behind Cardinal Leger Catholic School, deep inside this sleepy residential neighbourhood of house-proud properties and tidily maintained lawns, where kids play basketball in the driveway and couples walk their dogs.
It was a woman strolling with her dog across Canmore Park around 11 p.m. who came upon the body. Police from 43 Division received the call at 11: 51 p.m. and cruisers were screeching to the scene within minutes.
PERSAUD was lying in a pool of blood with obvious injuries to the head. It remains for pathologists to try and determine whether those blunt force injuries are responsible for PERSAUD's death, whether they were caused after being struck by the suspicious van, or if he was already lifeless before the added trauma of a hit-and-run.
The aforementioned cellphone, if it exists at all, was likely the property of PERSAUD, since he was known to own one and it wasn't found with the body.
Much of the investigation will now hinge on the quite remarkable talents of a reconstruction crew from the traffic unit. These crime scene specialists are able to map out -- following the trail of the tread marks and other clues embedded in the ground, analyzing "static measurements" and tire patterns -- where the vehicle came from and how it manoeuvred across the terrain.
A treadmark is nearly as conclusive as a fingerprint. But first, police will need a van to compare those markings with.
Toronto has become, in its ripening, a city no longer shaken to its roots by urban, or suburban, crime. Yet striking this close to home -- as PERSAUD's murder did in this particular neighbourhood there is still an element of discomfiture, if not quite disbelief.
"Scary, but what can you do?" shrugged Wayne POWELL, who lives directly across the street from the school, in a house where three children reside, one of them a Grade 8 student at Cardinal Leger.
"There are always little groups of teenagers who hang around behind the school at night. Not necessarily toughs or gangs, maybe just kids looking to get into mischief."
But last summer, there was another beating death down at the end of the road, and around the same time two people shot in a car not far distant.
"Sometimes, it just feels like it's all closing in on you."
Chelsea McCORMICK, 13, sidles into the doorway and casts her eyes towards her school. "I'll have to go there tomorrow. I'll be afraid to walk where it happened."
Next door, Anoj THAVARAJAH -- a Grade 7 student at Morrish Public School, which is situated on the far edge of the field, just beyond the baseball diamond -- says he was in his room playing video games when all the ruckus began Saturday night.
"I'm not scared, exactly, but I think, that could have been my brother. I mean, when you don't know why it happened."
His family only moved into this house last autumn. Anoj, 13, recalls how his father once chased down a vandal who'd tossed a brick through one of the windows when the house was still being constructed.
"We hadn't even moved in yet and already somebody was throwing bricks through the window. And then later, somebody took gasoline and started a fire in some other houses just behind here that were being built."
Petty vandalism, mischief-makers, bored kids. And then, on a quiet Saturday night, a teenage boy gets murdered.
It matters.
