KENDALL and the compassionate nurses at Sunnybrook Hospital.

HOPE o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-11-19 published
Former councillor remembered as a trailblazer
By James RUSK, Page A13
Former Toronto councillor Ying HOPE, the first Chinese-Canadian to be elected to the Toronto School Board and to city council, has been remembered as a trailblazing politician who left behind, in the words of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, "a wonderful legacy of service."
The Prime Minister's words were read at Friday's funeral for Mr. HOPE, who died last week at age 84. They also lauded Mr. HOPE for his "determined effort" to seek redress for the head tax once imposed on Chinese immigrants and for the exclusionary laws that prevented them from voting. These efforts by Mr. HOPE and other Chinese leaders were rewarded last year when the government apologized for a half-century of mistreatment of Chinese-Canadians.
But it was his two-decade career in city politics where Mr. HOPE, who grew up as one of eight children in the family of a tailor in Victoria, made his mark.
An engineer who had worked on the Avro Arrow and on the Dew Line, Mr. HOPE was first elected to the school board in 1964, made chair of the board in 1967, and won a seat on city council in 1969 as part of the Civic Action Group that included future mayors David Crombie and Art Eggleton.
A Progressive Conservative, who remained active in the party until he died, Mr. HOPE ran provincially in 1967 and federally in 1984.
He lost his council seat in 1985, won it back in a 1987 by-election, but his career as an elected official ended in 1988 when he lost his seat in that year's vote.
Until Mr. HOPE's election, the Chinese immigrant community had not played a direct role in electoral politics in the city, as Chinese families, traditionally leery of politics, preferred to handle political problems through intermediaries such as Bill Wen Sr., the owner of Sai Woo Restaurant.
Mr. HOPE's election led the way for Chinese-Canadians into the mainstream of civic politics, where he was followed by councillors like Gordon Chong and Denzil MINNAN- WONG.
"I agree with the view that Ying HOPE was a pioneer. He was one of the early politicians of Chinese descent who played politics the way it always has been played with less reliance on a totally Chinese base," said Susan ENG, former chair of the Police Service Board.
Former Toronto mayor John SEWELL, who was a rookie councillor with Mr. HOPE in Toronto in 1969, said that he was "somebody I would call a moderate. He was not a vote reformers could count on, but he was not part of the developer group headed by Fred Beavis."
Mr. SEWELL described Mr. HOPE's election in a ward that included traditionally Anglo areas of the city such as the Annex as a breakthrough in city politics. Mr. HOPE did not win simply with a big block of Chinese votes at his back.
"What was interesting was that he was not elected from the Chinese part of the city, and was not referred to as an ethnic candidate. … No one had a feeling that he was beholden anyone, and so he was allowed to act as a normal politician," Mr. SEWELL said.
"He was remarkable in his time. Ying HOPE was one of those people who established a beachhead," said Mr. MINNAN- WONG, who, like Mr. HOPE and Mr. CHONG, has been elected to council from wards that do not have large Chinese-Canadian populations.
"Both Gordon and I weren't running as 'Chinese' candidates. We were running as mainstream Canadians who had Chinese names," Mr. MINNAN- WONG said.
Mr. MINNAN- WONG, who represents Don Mills in council, said that circumstances have changed since Mr. HOPE was the pioneer.
"My father ran for council in 1976, and he wasn't successful. Back then, it wasn't easy to run with a double-barrelled Chinese name like MINNAN- WONG in an exceedingly suburban area that didn't have the same concentration of immigrant population you have now," said Mr. MINNAN- WONG.
Don Mills now has enough immigrants that its population is similar to rest of Toronto, and acceptance of multiculturalism makes its easier for him to run.
Even so, Mr. MINNAN- WONG noted, in general, the Chinese community is primarily interested in business, reluctant to participate in politics, and despite Mr. HOPE's example, still under-represented at elected levels relative to its share of the population.

PORTER, Helen Carmichael
Peacefully, in Toronto on September 10, 2007, surrounded by loving family, after a brave battle with leukemia. Beloved wife of Gary HOPHAN. Adored mother of Phillip and grandmother of Isaac. Cherished sister of Sheila SMITH, Anne PARIS, and Ian PORTER. Daughter of the late Rev. Gordon and Caroline (McLAREN) PORTER. Inspirational aunt to: Ross, Sharon, Wendy, Rosemary and Stephen (SMITH;) Jona, James, Jessica, and Emily (PARIS;) Andrew, Caroline, and Mary (PORTER.) A lifelong teacher and artist, Helen earned her Master of Arts in English at Victoria College, University of Toronto. In her storytelling career, she brought to children and teenagers a unique vision of Canadian and world myth, fairytale, legend, and short fiction. Her storytelling performances for adults explored family relationships, contemporary literature, and the theme of "the grotesque." In the later stages of her career, Helen's performances increasingly featured her own writing. Her one-woman shows at The Senator, The Luna Lounge, and many other venues, presented vividly drawn characters from the streets of Toronto and the hills of the Ottawa Valley. Her book, a fictionalised set of memoirs entitled The Bully and Me, has empowered students, parents, and teachers to confront a frightening aspect of young people's lives. In her dual careers, storytelling and teaching, Helen passionately developed her own creative gifts. Simultaneously, she encouraged others to do the same. Helen's students remember her as a mentor who nurtured their imaginations and supported their dreams. Her fellow storytellers will always be grateful for her motivational workshops and the opportunities she provided through the National Storytelling Theatre, which she founded and directed. Her countless Friends will cherish forever her love and generosity of spirit. A private service was held on Friday, September 14, at the chapel of the Rosar-Morrison Funeral Home. A memorial celebration of Helen's life will be held on Saturday, September 29. Details to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Helen's memory to Princess Margaret Hospital or to PEN Canada.

PORTER, Helen Carmichael
Teacher, writer, raconteur, wife, stepmother, sister, auntie. Born August 19, 1946, in Milton, Ontario Died September 10 in Toronto of leukemia, aged 61.
By Ross SMITH and Anne Porter PARIS, Page L8
Helen Carmichael PORTER was gifted from her earliest years. She had a swift imagination and intense energy, leaving no doubt that she was marked for stardom. She was attuned to the foibles of others and crafted these idiosyncrasies into weird and wonderful characters.
Her father, a Toronto United Church minister, used his estimable oratorical skills to enrapture his family with stories at the family cottage near Huntsville, Ontario Each summer evening, he gathered everyone around the hissing gas lamp and read aloud from such classics as Uncle Tom's Cabin, The Vicar of Wakefield and Grimms' Fairy Tales. Helen never forgot the delicious thrill a gothic tale brings to an imaginative child.
At summer camp, Helen wove ghost stories out of her vivid imagination and memory. As a young adult, she terrorized her nieces and nephews with tales of horror and suspense - and they loved every second of it.
Following university, Helen taught high-school drama and English, spending many years at Toronto's Vaughan Road Collegiate. She empowered her students through her imagination and generous spirit, and their appreciation empowered her. Yet, she needed room to create beyond the classroom. Making the leap to the then-unknown field of professional storytelling, she refined her talents in theatres, churches and schools across Canada.
In 1986, Helen married Gary HOPHAN, and together with his son, Philip, they established a creative home that became the birthplace of the National Storytelling Theatre, providing a vehicle for her to write, produce and perform shows. After the theatre's demise she continued to write, collect and tell stories while also leading workshops and teaching part-time.
Helen told her stories to audiences across Canada in performing arts venues and on radio, television and film. In 1996, she was invited to lead an assembly of high-school students on the topic of bullying. This inspired her to draw on her formative experiences. After eight years of touring this show, Helen wrote and published The Bully and Me: Stories that Break the Cycle of Torment.
In May, when Helen was diagnosed with leukemia, she saw cancer as just another bully to be reckoned with - and she was determined to come out victorious. Each morning, she laced up her sneakers to power-walk through the city streets she loved. She bravely fought the bully to the end with the loving support of her family.
Ross SMITH is Helen's nephew and Anne Porter PARIS is her sister.

SHUTLER, Richard Jr. (December 8, 1921-June 28, 2007)
Professor Emeritus, Simon Fraser University
Died peacefully on the evening of June 28th in the arms of his wife Jamie at Saint Paul's Hospital, Vancouver, after having had a stroke the same morning. Richard is survived by his second wife Jamie EVRARD, his first wife Mary Elizabeth 'Betty' SHUTLER with whom he had three children, sons John Hall and Richard Burnett, granddaughter Tessa Marie HOPLIN (James,) and sister Muriel Ericson (Roger) and predeceased by his daughter Kathryn ALLICE. A happy man who deeply loved and was loved by his family and Friends, Richard had a generous, collegial temperament and wide ranging interests in the field of archaeology and way beyond. Having spent over fifty years in the field, Richard seems to have lived many lives. Born in 1921 in Longmont, Colorado, he attended Salinas Jr. College, then inspired by the exploits of the famous paleontologist Roy Chapman Andrews in the Gobi desert he went on to get an Alberta and an M.A. in anthropology at U of California, Berkeley followed by a Ph.D. from U of Arizona in 1961. His education was interrupted by a stint in the Aleutian Islands as a diesel mechanic with the U.S. Army during the Second World War. Richard married Mary Elizabeth HALL in 1951 and soon after they went off to New Caledonia with E.W. Gifford, a legendary California archaeologist. Shortly after Richard became intensely interested in a pottery type that had begun to appear in some of the islands of the Pacific. This pottery, later dubbed 'Lapita', became perhaps the foremost tool that archeologists use in tracing man's early dispersal into the Pacific. Richard also did extensive archeological work in the American Great Basin, Hawaii, the Philippines where he married his second wife Jamie EVRARD, an artist whom he had met in Iowa in 1979, Vanuatu, the Gilbert Islands, Tubuai, Fefan Island, Truk, Fiji, China and most recently, Tonga. In 2005 the French Government feted Richard in Noumea, New Caledonia on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the discovery of Lapita pottery on that island. Two books were produced in his honor and archaeologists came from around the world to give papers in celebration of Richard's long career in Pacific archaeology. Richard maintained an office at Simon Fraser University until he died. Richard had many interests outside of archeology and especially enjoyed travelling to Italy with Jamie, buying and restoring a villa there, and collecting fresh figs. Richard lovvd expeditions, anything yellow, the opera, the novels of Joseph Conrad and Somerset Maugham, mango pudding, the paintings of Camille Pissarro and Picasso's huge steel sculptures, secret pockets in travel clothing, the Oakland Raiders, Beethoven's symphonies, chocolate milk shakes, Tiger Woods, and his gigantic and devoted cat Boodles. A memorial service will be held at 4: 30 p.m. on Thursday, September 20th at Simon Fraser University Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings Street, Vancouver, British Columbia Gifts in Richard's memory gratefully received by the Healthy Heart Program at Vancouver General Hospital and University of British Columbia Hospital Foundation, 855 W. 12th Ave., Vancouver, British Columbia V5Z 1M9.
