BEATTY, Christopher Perrin
(April 26, 1984-January 30, 2008)
Our beloved Christopher passed away peacefully in Chiangmai, Thailand, following a motorcycle accident the previous weekend. He was surrounded in his last moments by members of his immediate family and some of his closest Friends, and by the prayers and good wishes of the hundreds of people whose lives he enriched. Christopher's short life was characterised by his need to love and to be loved, his independence of thought, his intense loyalty to those who mattered most to him, and his determination to fight for what he believed was right. He was born at Guelph General Hospital and lived his first eleven years in Fergus, Ontario. As a child, he was bright, funloving and often mischievous. He brought enormous joy to his family and to their Friends, who loved watching him grow. In 1995, Christopher moved with his family to Ottawa. His most important academic influence came when he was a student at Sedbergh School, where the patient and loving attention from staff and the close Friendships he developed helped shape the young man he was to become. He held those Friends and the many others he made along the way close to his heart throughout the rest of his life, alongside his immediate family, his grandparents, his aunts and uncles, and his cousins. Christopher chose King's College at the University of Western Ontario, for his post-secondary education, graduating in May 2007 with a B.A. (Hons) in Political Science and History. In addition to being a natural athlete, he loved music and took particular pleasure in introducing new songs and singers to his family and Friends. A skilled writer and a passionate debater of politics and philosophy, he loved to argue about ideas, often long into the night. His charm and his intensity could light up the darkest room. Christopher was delighted when Patrick, his only sibling, became a student at Western. Patrick and Christopher formed a deep bond, and Christopher was prepared to take on all comers to support his younger brother. Christopher's death is a heavy loss for Patrick, who loved him equally strongly, and will always be grateful for their time together. Christopher left Canada for Chiangmai, Thailand at the end of July to spend a year as a residence don at the American Pacific International School. He planned to return to Canada this summer. He would then enroll in graduate school before embarking on his mission to change the world. While in Chiangmai, Christopher found time to explore. In October he visited Cambodia by himself and he spent Christmas with Canadian Friends living in Korea. In his final conversation with his parents, he talked about how happy he was and about the warmth of the Thai people. Christopher's last evening was spent with Friends from the school, sharing drinks and discussing philosophical issues. After his accident, both the excellent local medical staff and the Canadian government did everything possible to help Christopher and his family. His aunt, Doctor Joanne WILKINSON rushed to his bedside from Australia to assist. Christopher's body was cremated in Chiangmai and will come home to Canada with Patrick and his parents. A service will be held for him at McLaren Hall, Ashbury College, 362 Mariposa Avenue, Ottawa at 4: 00 p.m. on Thursday, February 7, 2008, immediately followed by a reception. For those who wish to give a gift in Christopher's memory, the family invites contributions to the Christopher Perrin Beatty Memorial Fund at Sedbergh School, Montebello, Québec.

LEDDY, Rita Theresa
On June 18th Rita passed from this life after a brave and graceful two and a half year struggle with cancer. She died at Saint Michael's Hospital in Toronto, the place where she had trained as a nurse, worked as a nursing supervisor and where she met her husband, Dr. John Edward LEDDY. Soon after their marriage in 1940 Rita and Jack each offered their medical services in the war effort in Europe. Rita worked in England as part of the British Civil Nursing Services. After the war they settled in Saskatoon and raised their three children: Mary Jo, Jennifer and Michael (Eileen). In Saskatoon, Rita became the elegant hostess of many parties and a hard-working member of several civic organizations. She was particularly committed to the Catholic Women's League and the Saint Paul's Hospital Auxiliary. After the death of her husband in 1991, Rita returned to Toronto where she had 'troops of Friends' and continued her many interests while finding new ways of ser ving the community, especially with Meals on Wheels and the Ecumenical Day of Prayer. She was a true renaissance woman and was known as something of an expert on the Bloomsbury Group. She was always open to new adventures. For many, she became a luminous example of how to age gracefully with wit and humour. Rita is survived by her three children and four grandchildren: Shannon, Connor, Brendan and James LEDDY. She will be greatly missed by her cousins Kitty HIGGINS and Mary Agnes McINTYRE as well as by her Friends of all ages and backgrounds. Rita was predeceased by her father Jeremiah WILKINSON, her mother Mary Jane CARR, her step-father François Regis HERVIEUX, her sister and four brothers and her uncle, Rev. Henry CARR, CSB, whom she spoke of with great affection as a 'best friend.' Rita had a great devotion to Blessed John Henry Newman, and the prayer below, composed by him, was one she knew by heart.
May He support us all the day long till the shades lengthen and the evening comes and the busy world is hushed and the fever of life is over and our work is done. Then, in His mercy, may he give us a safe lodging and a holy rest and peace at the last.
The family is grateful to the doctors and nurses at the Princess Margaret, Saint_Joseph's and Saint Michael's hospitals who accompanied and served her these last 2½ years. Visitation at Rosar-Morrison Funeral Home, 467 Sherbourne St at Wellesley, on Sunday, June 22 between 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. (prayers and memories at 8: 00 p.m.). Her funeral Mass of the Resurrection will take place at St. Basil's Roman Catholic Church (Bay and Saint_Joseph Streets) at 10 a.m. on Monday, June 23. In lieu of flowers, please make receiptable donations to support the refugee work of 'Romero House' (1558 Bloor Street West, Toronto M6P 1A4).

Financial Post editor was the godfather of business journalism in Canada
An economist first and journalist second, he understood early the importance of properly covering Bay Street and financial affairs. He also had an uncanny knack for discovering newsroom talent
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- Dalton ROBERTSON was executive editor of The Financial Post back when it was a broadsheet weekly and had enormous influence in the framing of public policy in Canada. He knew his weekly could not compete with The Globe and Mail's daily Report on Business, but using clear writing and solid content, he often scooped the competition.
Every week for more than 20 years, he wrote two front-page columns for the paper. One was an unsigned editorial, called The Nation's Business. The other was the Outlook column, a weekly examination of politics and economics in Canada.
He joined the newspaper in 1955 and, over the course of 32 years, Mr. ROBERTSON became a hugely influential figure in Canadian business journalism.
Dalton ROBERTSON was born in Rhode Island to Canadian parents who returned home soon after his birth. He spent much of his boyhood in Harriston, Ontario, a rural backwater about halfway between Toronto and Lake Huron. Although he came from a distinguished family - one of his grandfathers had been both the mayor of Harriston and a member of Parliament - he grew up relatively poor.
After Harriston High School, he went to the University of Toronto, graduating in 1949. He studied economics at the University of Chicago, although he was never of the Milton Friedman school of thought. Mr. ROBERTSON's politics were capital-L Liberal and he was an admirer of Walter Gordon, who was minister of finance in the Lester Pearson years and a staunch Canadian economic nationalist.
Mr. ROBERTSON worked in the economics and research branch of federal Labour Department for three years. His main achievement there was starting a magazine for the Civil Service Association. His first full-time job in journalism was at Canadian Business magazine, then located in Montreal. He joined the Financial Post two years later, at $500 a year.
He was hired by Ron McEACHREN, a tyrant of an editor who terrified most of his employees. Not Mr. ROBERTSON. They proved to get along well. He learned to mimic Mr. McEACHREN's voice and he liked to telephone reporters and demand they report to the boss's office. The reporters would arrive, shaking in their boots, to find Mr. ROBERTSON waiting outside the door and hugely enjoying his joke.
He took his work seriously, however, and felt passionately about the issues of the day. In 1961, he rose to the defence of James Coyne, the Bank of Canada governor, who was fired by prime minister John Diefenbaker for taking a contradictory attitude to inflation.
"Dalton was firmly against inflation and for the bank's independence," said his friend and colleague Neville NANKIVELL, who was editor of the Financial Post for many years.
During the peak of stagflation in the Pierre Trudeau years, Mr. ROBERTSON chastised the federal Liberals for failing to control inflation. "Restraint, it seems, has been clearly established as all that is needed to cure Canada's persistent twitch towards double-digit inflation," began his editorial of February 7, 1976.
Besides writing editorials, he was sent all over the world to return with essays and long reports on such events as Britain entering the European Community. He was dispatched to Australia to investigate why that country's development was eclipsing Canada's and how that might have shocked Wilfrid Laurier, a prime minister who had famously predicted that the 20th century would belong to Canada.
"The tide of money going into Australian resources - and many other factors as well - suggests that if the 20th century is to belong to anybody, it may be to Australia and not to Canada," he wrote in a long special report in 1971.
Later, as executive editor, he was in charge of just about everything, including running the paper's domestic and foreign bureaus. A slender and outgoing man who was well liked by colleagues, he possessed a distinctive sense of style and a refined fondness for certain cigars. With one eye brown and the other blue, he sported a neatly trimmed beard and dressed well even while at home with Friends. Once, on a trip to the Middle East, he took along a white suit but was discouraged from attending a formal dinner. Canadian embassy officials insisted he stay away; only the local potentate could wear white.
In the newsroom, he was a tough boss who demanded clear writing and accuracy from his stable of writers and reporters. He had "a good eye for hiring and capacity for firing without leaving blood on the floor," said his death notice, most of which he wrote himself.
He was also seen as an early advocate for covering economics and business properly.
"He played a really important role when business journalism was starting to evolve, not just in his own work but in the people he hired," said Christopher WADDELL, a professor of journalism at Carleton University who once worked under Mr. ROBERTSON. " Dalton laid the groundwork for business journalism for the last 25 years."
Over the years, he groomed scores of young journalists and helped launch them in their careers. Among them are Andrew Coyne of Maclean's; Globe and Mail editor Edward Greenspon; Giles Gherson, former editor of the Toronto Star and Edmonton Journal; Andrew Cohen, a Carleton University associate professor and author Gordon Pitts, a Report on Business columnist; Richard Blackwell, an Report on Business reporter; and Ian Brown, a Globe feature writer.
"He ran an incubator for business journalists," said Patricia Best, who worked at The Financial Post from 1978 to 1985 and is now an Report on Business columnist. "Dalton was so different. When he hired me, he asked, 'What are you reading?' I said, Alice Munro's short stories, which later I thought might not have been too businesslike. The next day, he hired me and said it was because I was reading Alice Munro."
She became the first woman at The Financial Post to cover the auto industry and came to realize that, while he was kind, he had high standards. "Dalton had faith in people and he took a gamble on them. [But] he was tough as nails. He didn't like any kind of fakery."
On a personal level, he took another gamble in 1981, when he bought a house in southwestern France. After The Financial Post, it was to become his second great passion. Located in the village of Puycelci, about an hour north of Toulouse, it, too, benefited from the ROBERTSON sense of style.
"It was built into the ramparts of the village and Dalton worked at expanding the gardens and the house," said Bea RIDDELL, a colleague at The Financial Post and one of Mr. ROBERTSON's closest Friends. "He was a marvellous host, whether it was in France or at home in Toronto."
He so loved the place that he decided to take early retirement and spend more time there. To better integrate himself in the community, he hired a local person to tutor him in French so that he eventually became fluent.
For many years, he also owned a large house in the Rosedale area of Toronto as well as a cottage in Ontario's Muskoka cottage country. He later sold the Toronto house to concentrate on his property in France.
He had done that sort of thing many times before - he was an adept flipper of real estate, working his way up from the Toronto neighbourhoods of Riverdale and Cabbagetown to the heights of inner Rosedale and then to a choice property in France, all the while keeping a smaller place back home. "You can't make any money in journalism," he liked to say.
Not that anyone ever heard from him when he was in France for long periods - at least not by e-mail. He hated computers. When they arrived in force at The Financial Post, he ignored them. He never owned one, never had an e-mail address and never learned to type with any degree of skill or enthusiasm. "He would retire into his office and write his editorials in long hand, then give them to someone to type them out," Mr. Pitts recalled.
In later years, if Mr. ROBERTSON had to send or receive e-mail, he would get a friend to do it for him using their own account, usually that of his companion, Brian WILKS.
His retirement from The Financial Post in 1987 was a bittersweet event. He was off for glorious France, but leaving his first love behind - a somewhat unrequited love, at that. Years before, he had been openly promised the job of editor-in-chief but then passed over when the time came in the mid-1970s. Executives told him they could not appoint a gay man as the editor of Canada's most prominent business newspaper. Instead, they named Mr. NANKIVELL to the job. By way of compromise, Mr. ROBERTSON became executive editor.
Characteristically, he kept his disappointment to himself and a few select Friends. At his retirement party, he joked that he was leaving for three reasons: the advance of technology the new work ethic that demanded arriving at the office before 10 a.m.; and society's puritanical attitude against smoking.
Dalton Sinclair ROBERTSON was born in Providence, R.I., on October 25, 1927. He died after collapsing in Mexico on January 27, 2008. He was 80 and suffered from lupus. He was 80. He is survived by companion Brian WILKS.
