Pero was removed to the general hospital at 2:30 Saturday morning by the police after dr. D M McDonald had been called and ordered the man immediately sent to the hospital. Investigation made by the police this afternoon after Dr. Calder had informed them that there was no hope for Pero disclosed that he had met Edward Arsenau of Main street Saturday afternoon about four o’clock near Senator’s Corner. Pero had said he was not feeling well and that he had 25 cents with which he intended to purchase a bottle of rubby dub. Arseneau urged him not to drink the rubby-dub but Pero replied that he had been drinking and that he had not eaten anything all day. Mrs Leo Doyle, Log Row stated to the police that Pero came to her house about five o’clock Friday evening, stating that he had not eaten all day. He was pretty full then and after getting his supper he remained until nine o’clock. Before he left he told Mrs Doyle that he had been drinking beer and wine and that he had drank a fifty cent bottle of rubbing alcohol raw out of the bottle. Pero, stated Mrs Doyle, in her statement to the police returned to her place about half past ten, appearing to have sobered up somewhat. Before she retired Mrs Doyle gave him a lunch, but he did not eat much and laid down on a couch down stairs. Leo Doyle, stated to the police that he returned from work at one o’clock. Pero spoke to him, asking if it was a fine night. Mr Doyle had something to eat and then retired. His wife told him that Pero had been quite drunk but had sobered up and added that Pero told her he drank a fifty cent bottle of rubbing alcohol. Mr Doyle said he was only a short time in bed when he heard Pero groaning and going to where he was, found Pero walking around the room holding onto his stomach as if in great pain. Pero asked Doyle to get him a drink of baking soda, afterwards asking for a drink of water. The pain continued to get more severe and moved to his heart and left shoulder. Doyle went out and returned with Dr. McDonald, who after an examination of Pero ordered his immediate removal to a hospital. Mr Doyle then rushed to Senator’s Corner where he met police officers and a few minutes later officers Hugh McLean and Buddy McDonald were on their way to the General Hospital with Pero. On Saturday he seemed to be improving and it was felt there was no immediate danger but today he took a turn for the worst and Dr. Calder who was in attendance with Dr. McDonald, notified the police. He sank rapidly and at five thirty he passed away. On his way to the hospital Pero told the officers that he had drank the rubbing alcohol, but refused to divulge where he had secured it. The unfortunate young man had formerly been employed in No. 11 colliery, but of late had not been regularly employed. His father, Charles Pero resides near Sydney Mines and he has several other relatives in and around Sydney Mines and the Boularderie district. The remains were taken to Curry’s Undertaking parlors and prepared for burial. After conferring with Crown Prosecutor Patterson, Chief McInnis decided that in view of the knowledge in the hands of the police an inquest was not necessary, it being agreed by all that the man had come to his death by his own rashness in drinking raw rubbing alcohol.

"He explored difficult subjects, often ahead of his time, with films like A RAISIN IN THE SUN, with Sidney Poitier, which dealt with racism, and THE DOLLMAKER, starring Jane Fonda, which dealt with women coming into their own as people and breadwinners." Petrie won directing Emmys for 1976's ELEANOR AND FRANKLIN and for ELEANOR AND FRANKLIN: THE WHITE HOUSE YEARS in 1977. Most recently, he worked on the 2001 TV productions WILD IRIS and WALTER AND HENRY. He also served in a number of leadership positions with the Directors Guild of America. His movie work included 1980's RESURRECTION, starring Ellen Burstyn, 1981's FORT APACHE, THE BRONX, with Paul Newman and 1978's THE BETSEY. Petrie wrote and directed THE BAY BOY, starring Kiefer Sutherland and Liv Ullman, an autobiographical film that won two Canadian Genie Awards for Best Picture and Best Screen Play. Petrie is survived by wife Dorothea, sons Dan Jr. and Donald; and twin daughters Mary and June. All have followed in his footsteps as producers, writers and directors.

Pâté Walter John Pâté
8/26/2004 Maureen McNeil Walter John Pâté died about 9:30 am BC time, Aug.26,2004, at Surrey Memorial Hospital. He was the son of Walter Pâté and Kate Floyd. Walter was born in Sydney, Cape Breton, lived as a young child in Portsmouth Ohio, and Baltimore, Maryland until his father died. His father was son of Hillaire Tranquille Pâté and Marie Cecile Samson. His mother took her husband's body to be buried in L'Ardoise and because of finances, and stayed in the community. She eventually married Georgie Mombourquette of Lower L'Ardoise. Walter went to WWII at the age of 15, joining the Cape Breton Highlanders. He served in Italy and the Netherlands. He spent his working years in the Signal Corps in the Canadian Armed forces, serving in Halifax, Sidney River, Ladner, BC and Kingston, Ont. He was posted back to Ladner, BC in 1960, and retired to North Delta, BC in 1969. He married Jean Frances Mary Casey Nov. 18 1946, who survives him, along with six children Maria, Joe, Sheila Margaret, Walter and Robert. He is also survived by many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Walter suffered for many years from Multiple Sclerosis and wounds from the war which ultimately determined his death. In the end, he went peacefully. He had many friends in L'Ardoise whom he grew up with, and from some stories played a few tricks. He took us to L'Ardoise as children, and we loved Kate, Georgie and Roseanne and he introduced us to his Grandfather, Hillaire Tranquille, and Marie Cecile, his Grandmother as well as many neighbours--the Clannons, Campbells, Birets and Samsons. George Burke was a great friend of his as was Sally Mombourquette, the school teacher. Mary Biret and Theresa and Herman, Mary's sister. And to many others who remember him, he says adieu.
