Today recalls sad memories, Of a dear mother gone to rest; And the one who thinks of her today, Is the one who loved her best. Daughter Evelyn. DEAR In loving memory of my dear husband, Victor, who passed away September 2, 1990. I remember the day I met you, The day God made you mine, And will till the end of time. You gave me years of happiness Then sorrow came, then tears, You left me beautiful memories I will treasure through the years. Among the tears and heartaches, One thing makes me glad - You chose me to share with you Those wonderful years we had. Many times I've cried - I lost my closest friend in life, The day that you died. I watched you suffer, I heard you sigh, But all I could do was just stand by. When the time came I suffered too, For you never deserved what you went through. God took your hand and we had to part, He eased your pain, but broke my heart. Beside your grave I sometimes stand, And try so hard to understand. The tears in my eyes I wipe away, But the pain in my heart is there to stay. I keep in my heart the love of the past, For there it was planted forever to last. Too deep in my heart for death to divide, Parted but still we walk side by side. Time does not erase the sorrow, And I know it never will. To have, to hold, and then to part, Is the greatest sorrow of our heart. Sadly missed and never forgotten. Eileen. DUBE In loving memory of a dear father, Jean Rock, who passed away September 2, 1988. We think of him in silence. His name we oft recall, There is nothing left to answer, But his picture on the wall. Your presence is ever near us, Your love remains with us yet, You were the kind of father, Your loved ones would never forget. Paul, Daniel and Julie. DUBE In loving memory of a dear husband, Jean Rock, who passed away September 2, 1988. There is a bridge of memories, From here to Heaven above, That keeps you very close to me, Its called a bridge of love. As time goes by without you, And days turn into years, They hold a million memories, And a thousand silent tears. To me you were very special, What more is there to say, Except to wish with all my heart, That you were here today. Lovingly Monique. KING In loving memory of my dear husband, George, who passed away 5 years ago, September 1, 1986. I do not need a special day To bring you to my mind, For the days I do not think of you Are very hard to find. If all this world were mine to give, I'd give it, yes, and more, To see the face of George, dear, Come smiling through the door. Your loving wife Muriel. KING In loving memory of a dear father and grandfather, George, who passed away five years ago, September 1, 1986. How we miss the welcome footsteps Of the one we loved so dear; Oft we listen for him coming, Fully sure that he is near. You are gone but not forgotten, Fresh our love will ever be, For as long as there is memory We will always think of thee. Always remembered by son Nelson, Susan and granddaughter Kelly-Anne. LAPOINTE In loving memory of my dear son, Peter, who passed away September 1, 1963, accidentally at age 14. I think of him in silence, His name I oft recall, There is nothing left to answer, But his picture on the wall. Love Dad. 70 In Memoriam BAKER In loving memory of a dear mother, Gladys, who passed away September 1, 1986. Forever in our hearts, Gone but not forgotten. Daughter Gail; grandsons, Darcy and Da- ryl. BOEHMER In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather, Clyde, who passed away September 1, 1990. Gone dear husband gone forever How we miss your smiling face. But you left us to remember None on earth can take your place. A happy home we once enjoyed How sweet the memories still. But death has left a loneliness The world can never fill. Yvette, Diane, Janet, Robin, Jason, Justin and Jarrod. O'BRIEN In loving memory of Keith, who passed away August 31, 1990. Time takes away the edge grief, But memory turns back every leaf, wife Sylvia. SIROISSTEELE In loving memory of a dear daughter, sister and aunt, Gail, who entered into eternal life September 2, 1985. After another year without you, The sorrow stays but our love is strongei yet; And wherever we go and whatever we do, We will never ever forget, The joys that we shared, The thoughtful things you'd do. We hope you know how much we cared, And we'll never stop loving you. With love from brother, Bill. NOTICE, The Citizen has prepared a selection of verse and memorial tributes in booklet form.

CANADA Call Her madam Chairman Women have to 'stop whining, wailing and complaining' to get ahead in man 's world, says head of Export Development Corp. BY SHEILA McGOVERN Montreal Gazette MONTREAL When Maureen Sabia took over the helm of Canada's Export Development Corp., there were moments of consternation in the nation's capital. Sabia insisted on being called "chairman," not one of the gender-neutral titles favored by federal bureaucrats. "I absolutely refuse to be categorized as the chair of anything, because I am not a piece of furniture," Sabia said in a recent interview at the Export Development Corp.'s Montreal office. "I absolutely refuse to be called a chairperson, because I looked up the meaning of chairperson once and it was the slave who went behind the king with a chair in case his majesty should want to sit down." It was a point on which the strongly opinionated Sabia felt she could not back down. For years now she has been firing broadsides at the women's movement over what she considers to be misdirected efforts, such as "ludicrous" fights over titles. It's not that Sabia isnt committed to the advancement of women. She is also chairman of the advisory board of the National Centre for Management Research and Development's Women in Management Program at the University of Western Ontario in London. And she's literally lived the battle for equal rights her mother, Laura, was the first chairman of the Ontario Status of Women Council. A lawyer by trade, she is also been a member of various corporate boards of directors. But on many issues with pay equity being, perhaps, the most notable, Sabia and women's activists such as labor leaders sharply diverge. Pay equity 'a crock Equal pay for equal work is mandatory, Sabia said, but pay equity also known as equal pay for work of equal value "is a crock." In Quebec, the pay-equity issue has been spearheaded by the Confederation of National Trade Unions in its negotiations with the provincial government Pay equity is based on the notion that traditionally female jobs are underpaid simply because they are occupied by women, not because the work is less demanding. Proponents point out that it is not uncommon for a male parking-lot attendant to be paid more that a female receptionist. Sabia believes pay equity simply pays women to stay in job ghettos. She wants the women's movement to concentrate on breaking out of ghettos and into the male-dominated upper echelons of business. Women should "stop demanding special treatment, stop demanding legislative imperatives, stop looking at this thing as a policing," Sabia says. "I think that asking for special treatment in the context of affirming women's equality is a contradiction in terms. "Because if women are truly equal which we are we don't need all this special treatment We've been very successful getting women in the door." ' 1 LM- 1 V J ' ' , $ ' Maureen Sabia 'Women don't need special treatment' But when it comes to figuring out what to do now, Sabia and many women's groups again parting company. "We somehow have to redirect the women's movement," she says. "I believe that in the last 10 years or so, they have confined women to the ghetto of the inadequate. They have done so with the best intentions in the world. But that has been the result in my view." She believes the movement has portrayed women as victims incapable of competing with men unless the deck was stacked in their favor through affirmative action programs or hiring quotas. "They have fostered whining, wailing and complaining about almost everything" And she believes the movement has embraced a mandate that is far too wide leaning to the left and linking up with peace and poverty groups. Women are as socially and politically diverse as men, she said, "I'm the biggest hawk I know." Not surprisingly, Sabia's viewpoint isn't shared by Judy Rebick, president of the National Action Committee on the Status of Women. Rebick considers Sabia a "professional anti-feminist." She believes many of the women in corporate circles who speak on women's issues are women who have succeeded because they act like men. The women's movement had to expand into areas such as poverty and native rights in order to better represent all women, said Rebick, who believes the movement must embark on the long and slow process of changing the whole system. Sabia believes the women's movement must now focus on getting women into positions of leadership, "because change comes from the top." And that, she believes, will take time, patience, education and a lot of research. Judy Rebick y; Considers Sabia 'professional anti-feminist For the women now in the system and )'. attempting to move up the ladder are encountering a whole new set of barriers. Sometimes called the glass ceiling, they ', are very subtle barriers that will need soj' phisticated solutions, Sabia said. - She hopes research being done at the University of Western Ontario will help come up with solutions. Those subtle barriers exclude women , from the male network that can provide the encouragement and opportunities for advancement. They could involve all-male clubs or the ', tendency of a company's upper manage- t ment to go on all-male fishing trips or play. goir No old-girls' cfub Sabia doesn't believe women can com- ; pete with the old boys' club by creating an old girls' network. .. ..; The old boy's club is where the power "ir is, she says, and women have to get in. Nor does she think women should try to stamp out golf games and fishing trips. She suggests finding another avenue for networking. ; , She belongs to hospital and university ; ' boards, which enables her to mingle with other business leaders. Women are the newcomers and should not expect the business world to change to ' let them in, she says. Women have to get ; in. then change the world from within. And she believes opportunities for women will open up once business leaders I realize that in searching for excellence, they can't afford to exclude such a large population. . . ', But it will take time, she says, 'this is evolution, not revolution" Pstributed by Southam News.) Report links health problems to toxins in Great Lakes TORONTO (CP) Toxic substances in the Great Lakes are contributing to a range of health problems, with fetuses and infants at most serious risk, says a report to be released Tuesday. The International Joint Commission, a Canadian-U.S. group that oversees the Great Lakes the largest reservoir of drinkable water on the planet will discuss the study by its Science Advisory Board at a September meeting in Traverse City, Michigan. It is one of the strongest statements so far that the 37 million people in the Great Lakes basin are susceptible to health problems, such as birth defects, that have been observed in the area's wildlife. "Obviously, we are not fish, but we experience contamination by persistent toxic substances as do fish and wildlife," the report says. It also questions the safety of human mothers' milk, which has been found to contain elevated levels of polychlorinated biphe-nyls in women living in Ontario and other areas bordering the Great Lakes. The report says organochlo-rines chemicals such as DDT, dioxins and PCBs should be declared a hazard to human health and eliminated, based on research linking toxin-contaminated mothers' milk to neurological disorders in children Although the commission's recommendations are not binding on either country's government, they can increase pressure on politicians to act. Surveys have found levels of PCBs in mothers' milk to be below government safety levels, but the report says those levels are arbitrary and not based on scientific research. It reveals that after six to nine months of breast-feeding, a child's PCB level can reach four times that of the mother. And the level keeps rising as long as breast-feeding continues.

(CP) A shooting that left a couple and another man dead is being called a double murder and suicide, provincial police said Saturday. Police in nearby Coboconk say the bodies of a woman and two men were found at the couple's home about eight kilometres west of this small central Ontario cottage community 35 kilometres northeast of Orillia Autopsies were to be performed Sunday on Diane Patricia Harrison, 49, William Leslie Harrison, 50, both of rural Kirkfleld, south of Norland, and Ronald Bray 55, of Keswick, on the southern tip of Lake Simcoe. A fourth person, Hanford David Trites, 43, of Mississauga, near Toronto, suffered a gunshot to his left hand and was recovering in a Toronto hospital, police said. Police were called to the scene at about 1120 p.m. Friday, said Const Dave Fletcher. One neighbor in the area, a cottager, said he heard that night what sounded like shots from a semi-automatic weapon. Police were not releasing information on the type of gun used. "It must have been four or five shots in a row," said the cottager, who declined to give his name. . tT TOM V6' l.TON PRINCE 18 lit w 0 DOUBT IV,
