John GILBERT, Lawyer And Politician: (1921-2006)
Brought up in a poor, working-class family in Toronto, he entered law and politics to try and make the world a better place. 'There wasn't a tinge of self-righteousness about him'
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Having vowed when he started practising law that each year any money he earned over $5,000 he would give away, John GILBERT lived up to a deeply held belief that he should help society's less fortunate. This belief led him to enter politics as a federal candidate for the New Democratic Party in 1963, and later helped him during 15 years as a judge in Ontario.
Mr. GILBERT, known to Friends as Jack, lost his first run at politics in 1963. Two years later, his luck turned: He won a seat in the riding of Riverdale (now called Broadview-Greenwood), which had been Conservative since 1867. After his win, he told reporters that he and his wife, Nora, had tirelessly knocked on the doors of all the riding's 15,000 homes.
"As soon as we began to talk to the people and found out how they were thinking, we knew we would win," Mr. GILBERT said at the time.
He attributed a large part of his good reputation in his riding to his work at Woodgreen Community Centre. Each week, he devoted a day to the legal problems of Broadview residents, work that he said gave him a chance to see many of the problems his constituents had. He went on to serve the community for 13 years as an member of Parliament. During that time, he was a caucus member under New Democratic Party leaders Tommy Douglas and Ed BROADBENT.
"He was one of the members of Parliament that I most admired in my life," said Mr. BROADBENT, who for many years held the riding of Oshawa-Whitby. Describing Mr. GILBERT as a gentle individual capable of unbelievable kindness, Mr. BROADBENT said Jack GILBERT had so few aggressive bones in his body that he wouldn't fight, like many of his fellow members of Parliament, to get into Question Period.
"There wasn't a tinge of self-righteousness about him," Mr. BROADBENT said. While he was a good constituents' member of Parliament, Mr. GILBERT didn't focus on his riding to the expense of national issues. "He was always good in caucus. He knew the national issues and he made his views known."
In 1969, Mr. GILBERT sharply criticized the government after the findings of a five-month housing inquiry were released. Calling the inquiry "a colossal fraud on the Canadian public," Mr. GILBERT said it had wasted time finding out what was already known. He said the report showed no concern for low-income people. He went on to say that it was strange that Canada could build enough cars, television sets and radios for its people but not enough houses to fulfill a basic right to decent accommodation. During his time as an member of Parliament, Mr. GILBERT also spent time at the United Nations with Pierre Trudeau, whom he greatly admired. Among the stories he liked to tell about his years in Ottawa was the time he and his wife, along with another member of Parliament and his wife, were heading to a black-tie affair where the Queen was the guest of honour. On their way, their old car broke down and they were forced to hitchhike. When a farmer stopped in his pickup to give them a ride, the two women sat in the front while John and the other member of Parliament hopped in the back, sitting atop a bale of hay.
Raised in Toronto, Jack GILBERT was the youngest of five children whose parents had left Ireland as poor Protestants and immigrated to Canada. At first, life was tough. With little money, John and his brothers gathered pieces of coal that had fallen off horse-drawn coal wagons to take home and heat their house. During the Depression, the family eventually lost their home to a mortgage foreclosure.
As a young boy, he sold papers in the heart of Toronto at Yonge and Bloor streets, for two cents each. Later in life, he loved to show his children how -- all in one motion -- he could still take a newspaper, slap it against his leg, fold it twice, slip it under the buyer's arm and hold out his hand for payment.
To help support his family, he left school early. After a couple of years working in a paper-box factory, he met and married his true love, Nora LAW, and she put him through university by working as a secretary at a car dealership. After learning they couldn't have children, they adopted three in succession.
When Mr. GILBERT graduated from law school, he went to work for a large firm but soon left because he felt they charged clients too much. He set up a private practice to represent the less fortunate and did a lot of pro bono work for the Salvation Army.
After 13 years in federal politics, Mr. GILBERT accepted an appointment in 1978 as a judge to the District Court of Ontario (now the Superior Court of Justice), where he remained until his retirement in 1993. After receiving the appointment, he called Bob Rae, who is now running for the leadership of the federal Liberal Party, and asked him if he would take over his seat. Mr. Rae is reported to have asked if his health was forcing him to leave.
"Yes," Mr. GILBERT replied. "I'm very healthy and I want to stay that way." Mr. Rae accepted the offer and was elected to the House of Commons in a 1978 by-election, defeating Conservative candidate Tom Clifford. Interestingly, Jack Layton, the current New Democratic Party leader, represents the same riding.
Vacations in the GILBERT household were seen as opportunities to help others. Some Christmas vacations in the 1960s were spent at an interracial commune in Americus, Georgia. Others were spent in Jamaica lending a hand to a friend who had started a residential school for deaf children.
"He believed in the human spirit," said his son Peter GILBERT, who described his father as a quietly religious person who felt God's hand was in everything he had been given.
In a 1971 letter to the editor of The Globe and Mail, Ted SUGGITT of Lindsay, Ontario, wrote about a memorable hitchhiking experience. While living in a northern cabin with his family, Mr. SUGGITT was hitchhiking back to the city when a man, his wife and their children stopped to pick him up.
"It was a wet, fall day, but the climate inside the car was cheerful and relaxed," Mr. SUGGITT wrote. "As our conversation touched on many subjects, I found myself enjoying the company of this man and his family. He was quite concerned about my problems of that day, which had to do with housing and working away from home."
After dropping him off in the city, Mr. GILBERT gave him his card and told him to call if he ever needed anything. Some time later, the hitchhiker saw Mr. GILBERT's picture in the paper and discovered he was a candidate in an upcoming election. "Although he was of a political party not of my choice, I was of the opinion Parliament would be a better place with a man of this calibre," Mr. SUGGITT wrote. "I have not been disappointed."
As a judge, Mr. GILBERT showed the same decency and fairness that he had in politics. In a 1985 case involving a man charged with mischief, Mr. GILBERT ordered a Toronto jury to acquit the man after determining that he had been pressured by police to give a statement. After hearing the statement, Mr. GILBERT said: "You could probably call 50 witnesses: and I wouldn't be persuaded the statement was voluntary."
There was no pretension about John GILBERT, said his friend, Ted MATLOW, a fellow judge. "Every serious legal discussion would end with a review of the Toronto Blue Jays team."
While he enjoyed his work in politics and law, Mr. GILBERT's family came first. After his wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, he cared for her for the next 10 years. Last fall, the couple celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. She died in June; six weeks later, Mr. GILBERT went into hospital. In caring for his wife, he had neglected his own health.
John GILBERT was born in Toronto on September 12, 1921.
He died in Toronto on August 7, 2006, after suffering from a blood condition and prostate cancer.
He was 84. He leaves his children, John, Gwen and Peter; several grandchildren and one great grandchild. He also leaves his sister, Kathleen, and brother, Arthur.
