JESSIMAN, The Honourable Duncan James, Q.C.
Quietly and with dignity, Duncan passed away, on Wednesday, April 19, 2006 in Vancouver, British Columbia. Duncan is survived by Alix (PERRIN,) his loving and caring wife of 27 years and his children, Duncan (Colleen CRAWFORD,) Robert (Sally KENDALL) and Sally (Arnold OSTEVIK.) 'Big', as he was affectionately known, will also be missed by his devoted grandchildren Duncan (Tressa MAIN,) Patrick, Shauna, Ryann (Phil DOUCETTE), Scott, Robin, Joe and Julia. Big was a loving caring father and grandfather always there to support and love his family. It made him very proud that all of his children were university educated and active professionals in their communities. He was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on June 5th 1923, to parents William and Rubina (RUBY) JESSIMAN. He was predeceased by his mother when he was 9 years old and subsequently by his father and brothers, William, Tom and John and he is survived by his youngest brother Harvey. At age 16, Duncan left home and went west to fight fires in British Columbia. His Aunt Ret and Uncle Dunc then convinced him to come home and stay with them and go back to school. They made him realize the importance of education. At the age of 18, he joined the Royal Canadian Navy as a midshipman. He served in the coastal forces in Canada, the United Kingdom and France. He served with the 29th Canadian Motor Torpedo Boat Flotilla and was part of the Allied liberation of Europe, participating in D-day, June 6, 1944, and in operations on the French, Belgian and Dutch coasts. This was dangerous duty. He survived the destruction of his squadron at 0stend in 1945. He was honourably discharged as a Lieutenant Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve in August 1945. After his service he continued his commitment to lifelong learning as he worked to obtain his law degree. After he obtained his law degree, he went back and obtained his arts degree and then later his LLM and then went on to teach in the post graduate program at the law school. He started practicing law in 1948, when he joined with Arthur Johnston, the firm eventually becoming Johnston, Jessiman, Gardner and Twaddle. In 1971 that firm joined with Pitblado and Hoskin where he became a partner and in 1998 he joined Aikins, MacAulay and Thor valdson where he continued his practice until 2005. He was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1959 and appeared successfully before the Supreme Court of Canada on four occasions. He was a life long member of the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada and became a senator in 1993. He took great pride on the work he did in the Senate with the Special Committee dealing with the Pearson Airport Agreements, the Standing Committees on Fisheries and Oceans; Legal and Constitutional Affairs; Social Affairs, Science and Technology; the Sub Committee on Veterans Affairs; and the Joint Committee on Child Custody and Access. In addition to politics Duncan's commitment to the community involved his participation in the Rotary Club of Winnipeg where he became President, the University of Winnipeg, where he became Chairman of the Board of Regents; he was a founding member, chairperson of the board and member of the executive committee of the Victoria General Hospital Research and Services Inc. in addition he was a member of the advisory boards of Rainbow Stage and the Canadian Arthritis Society. In business he was equally successful where he was a driving force in the creation of a number of entities listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. These entities included Service Corporation International Canada, Geocrude Energy, Pan Cana Resources and Rimoil where he served as chairman and Enerplus Resources where he was a director. He also served as a director of Air Canada. In Winnipeg, through Progressive Holdings he was involved with many investments involving among other things, land development. The development of Linden Ridge with others was one of its larger undertakings. Through his community involvement, political associations and business interests, there were not many places he didn't travel to, however his best times were visiting the far flung reaches of Canada and getting to know and gain a better understanding of the people. He always prided himself for having a goal, setting the agenda, being rigorously honest, being in control, giving ample consideration to all the details in complex matters, he had a very focused and strong mind. When needed he was always able to shift his truly incredible power of focus to deal with the required issue at hand, usually involving others. He was always determined and could always be relied on. His enormous strength, energy and the security of purpose was cherished by many, but in particular, his family members. He will be dearly missed by all. He was a member of the Manitoba Club and the St. Charles Country Club where he very much enjoyed matching wits with the 'Boys of Friday'. For many years Duncan and the family spent summers enjoying the family cottage uniquely located on the isthmus between West Hawk Lake and Hunt Lake. A service in celebration of Duncan's life will take place at St. George's Crescentwood Anglican Church, 168 Wilton Street in Winnipeg on Tuesday, April 25 at 11 a.m. with reception to follow at the Church. Donations to CancerCare Manitoba, P.O. Box 2248, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3C 4A6 are. gratefully appreciated. Duncan was deeply appreciative of all his caregivers, especially Antonia and Merril and his dedicated wife and daughter. Condolences may be emailed to condolences@nbardal.mb.ca.

Crash claims former region mayor
By Hank DANISZEWSKI, Free Press Reporter, Mon., June 5, 2006
Former Saint Thomas mayor Joanne BROOKS, who died in a weekend crash, left her city a bigger and better place, says former colleague and Ontario Labour Minister Steve PETERS.
"She had to be one of the most community-minded people ever in the history of Saint Thomas," PETERS, whom BROOKS succeeded as mayor in 1999, said yesterday.
London police confirmed BROOKS, 63, was killed in a crash on Highbury Avenue near Dingman Drive Saturday during a heavy rainstorm. Her death was one of three on area roads that day.
The southbound pickup truck BROOKS was driving flipped and landed in a ditch.
BROOKS spent 13 years as a Saint Thomas alderman, topping the polls three times before being appointed by council to succeed PETERS after he won office as an member of provincial parliament.
After 18 months as an appointed mayor, BROOKS ran for the job in the 2000 election, but lost to Peter OSTOJIC by 86 votes.
She ran for mayor again in 2003, but finished second to Jeff KOHLER, the current mayor.
PETERS said BROOKS's "crowning achievement" was chairing the committee that negotiated a 1995 annexation agreement with Southwold and Yarmouth townships, giving Saint Thomas badly needed land for new development.
"It was the first annexation in 30 years and allowed for tremendous residential development. She worked so hard on that," said PETERS
Born and raised in Saint Thomas, BROOKS worked for many years as a salesperson at the auto dealership now known as Saint Thomas Ford.
She also owned and operated a hairstyling shop and a children's wear store and was active in many civic groups, including the Trillium Fund, First United Church and Beta Sigma Phi sorority.
BROOKS was a founder and president of Christmas Cares, an organization that has delivered food and toys to needy Saint Thomas-Elgin families for 25 years.
BROOKS and her husband, Stirling, had been married for 43 years. Along with her husband, she's survived by her son, John, daughters Shelly and Sue and six grandchildren.
Visitation will be held at Williams Funeral Home in Saint Thomas tomorrow from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The funeral service will be held Thursday at 1 p.m. at First United Church.
Donations may be made to the Joanne BROOKS Community Charity Foundation.

OSTRY o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2006-05-25 published
Bernard OSTRY, 78, played key culture role
By Canadian Press, Thurs., May 25, 2006
Toronto -- Bernard OSTRY, one of the most creative public servants of his generation, died of cancer yesterday at 78.
Stylish, intellectual and visionary, he helped shape the country's cultural infrastructure as a government official in Ottawa and Toronto and, late in his career, as head of TVOntario.
His recent gifts to the Royal Ontario Museum and the University of Toronto's Massey College stand to enrich Toronto's cultural life for years to come.
High Style: The Ostry Collection at the Royal Ontario Museum was published last fall to catalogue the rich Art Deco and Art Nouveau furniture collection OSTRY and his wife, Sylvia, donated to the museum.
"The Ostry collection was really what justified us being able to create an all-new gallery on 20th-century design," Royal Ontario Museum director William THORSELL said yesterday, of a space to open next year.
Massey College established the Bernard Ostry Foundation 1½ years ago with $500,000 from paintings OSTRY sold at auction.
At high school in Winnipeg, OSTRY met his future wife, Sylvia KNELMAN. They studied at the University of Manitoba, did post- graduate work in England, then took up senior public service posts in Ottawa.
In 1970, OSTRY became assistant under-secretary of state, credited with being the chief architect of a number of multicultural initiatives under then prime minister Pierre Trudeau.
He later was secretary-general to the National Museums of Canada, deputy minister of communications and Paris-based special adviser to western Europe on culture and communications technology.
In a parallel career, Sylvia OSTRY served as head of the Economic Council of Canada and a director of the Paris-based Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.
"They made a very unusual and potent combination," said Allan Gotlieb, former Canadian ambassador to Washington.
In 1985, after serving as deputy minister in three Ontario ministries, OSTRY took charge of TVO. For seven years, he directed the educational channel's huge growth in international deals and became one of the country's most eloquent defenders of public broadcasting.
