Expert on how Canadians vote among first to back electoral reform
Queen's University professor whose writings attracted the attention of politicians and political scientists believed that only proportional representation could fairly serve all regions of the country
By Gay ABBATE, Page S7
Toronto -- On their first date, William IRVINE proudly informed Joanne PASCARELLA, his future wife, that he was "a true Canadian." She, an American who had never travelled to Canada, asked what he meant. He explained that he came from two founding nations: His father was a Scottish Protestant and his mother was a Catholic French Canadian. This pride in representing both solitudes instilled a life-long interest in how the country worked and helped him become a leading thinker on Canadian electoral reform.
"He helped move the question of electoral reform from the esoterical to the mainstream," said Prof. Kenneth Carty, a political scientist at the University of British Columbia and former student of Prof. IRVINE. "He set the agenda for further debate."
Born in Quebec City, the only child of a local debutante and a pilot who had once delivered mail across Manitoba in an open-cockpit plane, William Peter IRVINE spoke mainly French until he started school at 5. His father, who did not speak French, worked for the federal Department of Transport and travelled extensively across the country in search of new airport sites. Since he was rarely home, his son learned only his mother's tongue.
Prof. IRVINE's later bent for sovereignty stemmed from living in many parts of the country because of his father's job. After early schooling in Montreal, his high-school years were spent in New Brunswick, his bachelor's degree was attained at the University of British Columbia and his master's came from Queen's University in Kingston.
On the rare occasions when his father was home, the two would go fishing, an interest that was replaced by curling and golf when William went to University of British Columbia at 18. It was also there that he became interested in politics, majoring in political science and joining the student Liberals. He left the party when he began teaching at Queen's because he believed he needed to be objective.
One night, while working on his doctorate at Yale University in Massachusetts, he attended a party and met Ms. PASCARELLA, a young high-school teacher who taught U.S. history and Italian. They clicked immediately because they were both Catholic and shared similar values. They were engaged three months later - because they married in 1967, he liked to say she was "his centennial project," Mrs. IRVINE said.
After completing his doctorate, Prof. IRVINE received numerous offers to teach in the United States. Instead, he opted to return home and join the faculty at Queen's. Professor emeritus Hugh Thorburn, then head of the political science department, said he hired him because he was such a promising scholar and teacher.
During his 22 years at Queen's, Prof. IRVINE published extensively on political parties and elections and election reform. His 1979 book Does Canada Need a New Electoral System? attracted the attention of many political scientists and politicians interested in looking at better ways to choose a Parliament. He was a strong advocate of proportional representation as a way of ensuring that all regions of the country were equally represented. He also wrote for the Task Force on Canadian Unity and for the Royal Commission on the Economic Union and Development Prospects for Canada, which were established in 1977 and 1982, respectively, to study ways of better uniting the country.
In a 1980 article for The Globe and Mail, Prof. IRVINE criticized the existing system for enabling a party to win a majority of seats while receiving less than half the popular vote.
This winner-take-all approach leaves some regions overrepresented and others underrepresented, he explained. His work on electoral reform helped influence some provinces to move to a more proportional system, Prof. Carty said.
Prof. IRVINE took three one-year leaves from his teaching duties to study the European electoral system. In particular, he wished to learn more about the German and Swiss proportional systems, two electoral schemes he preferred over Canada's.
The time abroad was also an opportunity for the IRVINEs to travel, something they both loved doing. In 1977 and 1978, he studied at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. They toured extensively in Europe during what Mrs. IRVINE called "the best year of our lives."
Although he enjoyed research and writing, his great love was teaching, according to his wife and former students. "I'm getting paid for doing something I love," he told his wife. Prof. Carty, a student in the 1970s, said his teacher was "gentle, enthusiastic and committed." He thought not in the abstract but in the practical, said his wife.
Prof. Carty recognized his influence by dedicating to him the book Politics is Local: National Politics at the Grassroots, co-authored with Munroe Eagles, another former IRVINE student. In a letter to his mentor, Prof. Carty wrote that the dedication was a small expression of thanks for the opportunity to learn from him, which was the "making of us as teachers, as scholars and political scientists."
In the early 1980s, Mr. IRVINE began experiencing problems with balance and falling. Doctors could not find a cause. By 1985, while at the University of Manchester in England, his symptoms worsened and he began to limp and use a cane. He spent three weeks in hospital but doctors still could not identify the problem. After he returned home in 1985, he received a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. He continued to teach - sometimes using a cane, sometimes from a wheelchair - for another six years. It was only when his voice lost its power, and when he could no longer lecture, that he retired from teaching. He continued to do research on his computer at home until his fingers became too numb to use the keyboard.
In 1997, the IRVINEs moved to Toronto to be near their two daughters. At no time did he complain about his disease, Mrs. IRVINE said. "His strong faith helped him through it." He accepted his failing health and never felt sorry for himself, Prof. Carty said.
Always a news junkie, Prof. IRVINE loved watching news shows. His wife read The Globe to him every morning, always starting with columns by Jeffrey Simpson, another former student. Prof. IRVINE maintained his interest in the news of the day, especially anything to do with elections or Quebec, even after he entered a chronic-care facility in Toronto.
Family and Friends describe Prof. IRVINE as gentle and easy-going, a nature that earned him the nickname Sweet William, after the flower by that name, from one of his professors at Queen's.
William Peter IRVINE was born July 30, 1941, in Quebec City. He died at the West Park Healthcare Centre in Toronto on April 23, 2008, from complications of multiple sclerosis. He was 66. He leaves wife Joanne, daughters Margot (a university professor) and Marie (a lawyer,) sons-in-law John KOCH and Mark SHINOZAKI, and four grandchildren.
