Science Council of Canada: Conserver Society

Subseries consists of records relating to Dr. Franklin’s activities as a member of the Science Council of Canada (SCC), especially her service as chair of the committee eventually responsible for SCC’s Report Number 27: Canada as a Conserver Society.

According to Dr. Franklin, what makes these records particularly significant is their documentation of an attempt by the committee to develop an energy future for Canada by two people of very different philosophical approaches. The committee asked Amery Lovins to develop one such scenario and asked Dr. E. Stoian and others of the Science Council Staff to critique the paper by Dr. Lovins and produce an alternative scenario. Unfortunately the exercise was not as helpful as had been hoped for, largely because of the inability of those critical of Dr. Lovins to clearly state their assumptions. The discussion is documented in the material in the folder B1996-0004/027(11) (“Lovins and Stoian discussions”). It is probably the only still existing documentation of this research attempt.

Underlying the discussions is a fundamental power struggle related to the different approaches to energy policy expressed by the two committees and their respective communities. Bruneau’s committee dealt essential with the problem of possible energy shortages from the supply side: trying to develop a spectrum of energy supplies regardless of environmental or physical costs, or the energy costs of producing energy. The approach of the Conserver Society essentially dealt with modifying the demand side of the problem, noting how much waste and inappropriate usage is created by the availability of cheap energy. However, the power of the energy industry, including the nuclear establishment, weighed heavily on the self-interest of the supply solution.

Subseries also includes records of discussion around the council’s population report. These led to a minority statement by Dr. Fernand Seguin and Dr. Franklin. Dr. Seguin subsequently resigned on matters of principal from the council. The subseries also includes a file on a 1982 symposium on The Conserver Society Revisited.

Also included is the report on the Conserver Society by the Montreal based Gamma Group. Although the Council and the Group were in touch with each other, the studies proceeded somewhat side-by-side since the work of the Council was primarily policy-oriented. Yet, the public as well as the professional discussions took both documents seriously into account.

Records in this series provide significant documentation of the group and include background material, reports, correspondence, newsletters, media coverage, workshop material, discussion papers, and presentations. The series also includes general subject files on the environment.

Grants

This sub-series consists of files related to attaining funding through grants. The material contains records such as grant applications, correspondence, budgets, and research proposals. This sub-series reflects the process through which Dr. Roots applied for and obtained funding for her research. The majority of the material focuses on applications for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and Natural Science and Engineering Research council (NSERC).

Subject files

This subseries consists of files relating to activities of particular interest to Prof. McNaught during his tenure as professor in the Department of History (1965-1984), and his continuing interest in the faculty’s professional association after his retirement. Included among this small group are files relating to the Faculty Committee on Vietnam (1967-1969), University League for Social Reform (1964-1966), applications for an unfilled one year appointment in American History (1969-1972), and two files on the University of Toronto Faculty Association (1995-1997).

Law School: Student, Professor, and Dean

The four boxes in this sub-series contain documents relating to my experience as a student, my four years at Osgoode Hall Law School, and my time as a law teacher and dean at the University of Toronto Law School.

There are very few documents relating to my student days at law school (files 2 and 3), apart from my moot factum (file 2) and notes and a small paper prepared for Abe Weston’s jurisprudence course and a set of notes taken in Bob McKay’s criminal law course (files 4 and 5). I have included several marked-up texts used as a student, including my international law casebook, the subject that was to be the subject of my graduate studies (file 7). (For a description of why I chose criminal law for my graduate work, see my speech to the Cambridge Boat-Race dinner in box 04, file 42). As I apparently tossed out most of my notes when we went to England in 1960, there is also very little from my articling year and the bar admission course. What has survived is one incorporation I did and a number of cases I argued for the firm of Kimber and Dubin and some legal aid criminal cases that I took on my own (files 8-10). Some of these cases were sensational enough to be covered in the yellow journals of the day, in Hush, Justice Weekly, and Tab.

Similarly, there are very few documents relating to my four years teaching at Osgoode Hall Law School from 1961-1965 (file 11). Research notes and documents relating to the Osgoode years can, however, be found in a number of other boxes, such as those relating to Detention before Trial, Securities Regulation, and Double Jeopardy.

I was appointed to the University of Toronto Faculty of Law commencing on July 1, 1965 (file 12). From that period on there is more material. The files, for example, contain some material on the Law School’s Research Committee and its Long Range Planning Committee, as well as various other memos (files 13-15).

In 1972 I was appointed as the dean and returned from my year as a Law Reform of Canada Commissioner in Ottawa (files 16-20). The files contain a fair amount of correspondence while still in Ottawa relating to the deanship (file 21). There are also various law school plans and speeches made while dean (file 22).

The many files connected with my seven years as dean between 1972 and 1979 will be found in the normal law school files. I did not go through the files to keep any law school records when my term of office was over. There is, however, a fairly lengthy interview done for the student Advocate (file 23). There are also a number of files dealing with student mooting while I was dean which were not part of the law school records but were given to me by some students a number of years later (possibly in the early 1980s) because they didn’t know what to do with them (files 41-44).

In 1975 I started making brief notes of my plans for the coming year (file 24) and kept this up until the present. I usually did these around Labour Day. From about 1980 on I also prepared, as we were required to do, annual reports to the dean on my moonlighting and other activities for the past year (file 27).

Correspondence from 1980 on not found in other boxes is contained in files 28-36. The files also contain material on other aspects of law school life, such as my chairmanship of the Directed Research Committee (files 37 and 38), my involvement as faculty advisor to the Faculty of Law Review (file 40), my membership in the graduate committee (file 48), and my involvement in seeking special salary increases for the faculty (file 39). None of these files is very complete, however. There are also files on my involvement in the law school annual squash tournament, various alumni events, and various talks I gave at the law school (files 45,47, and 51). Other files deal with various sabbatical plans, various media appearances, and ways in which I coped with the changing technology, including the use of the computer (files 46, 49, and 53). A number of law school pictures are contained in file 50.

Double Jeopardy

During articling in 1959-60, I applied to do graduate work in England and the United States. Although accepted (with funding) at Harvard and Yale (file 4), I accepted the Carswell/ Sweet and Maxwell Scholarship for study at Cambridge University that was being offered for the first time that year (file 2). I also obtained a substantial scholarship that was offered by Osgoode Hall Law School if I promised to teach there for one year after I returned (file 3). My wife and I were therefore comparatively wealthy--she worked at a mental hospital just outside Cambridge-- and we bought a red Sunbeam Alpine that we brought back to Canada with us (file 39).

I was to spend one year getting a Diploma in Comparative Legal Studies. My topic was double jeopardy, although I had at first naively thought that I would cover in that one year several ‘bars to prosecution’. Glanville Williams was my supervisor. The circumstances of choosing my college and my supervisor are set out in an after-dinner talk that I gave several years ago at the annual Cambridge dinner (file 40).

We returned to Canada in the summer of 1961 and I started teaching at Osgoode Hall Law School. I taught there during 1961-62 and then applied for a leave of absence to be able to return to Cambridge to convert my work into a doctorate (files 8 and 9). This time, funding came from the Canada Council (file 5), with some travel funds from the Law Society. I had applied for a Viscount Bennett Scholarship from the Canadian Bar Association, which, as in 1959-60, I did not get. The file includes all the letters of reference relating to the 1959-60 application which the CBA mistakenly returned to me (file 6)!

There is extensive correspondence throughout the 1960s with my supervisor, Glanville Williams, and with Cambridge University (files 8-10). I required dispensation with respect to shortening the number of terms that I had to spend in Cambridge and various extensions that I required. During this same period, I was researching and writing Detention Before Trial (published in 1965) and was involved in the Legal Aid study and the Kimber Committee on Securities Regulation, all of which made it difficult to complete my thesis.

I had thrown out all my research notes many years ago. They were kept in spiral binders and I recall having well over 50 of them. The only hand-written documents that survived are various versions of the preface (files 18 and 20). Four of the chapters of the manuscript were published as articles before the book was published and in some cases before the thesis was completed (files 16 and 17). The thesis was approved in early 1966. I did not have to go back to England to defend it. Sir Rupert Cross was the external examiner. Gooderson and Odgers were the internal examiners (file 19).

The thesis (Box 2) was published by Oxford University Press, having first been turned down by Sweet and Maxwell, whose scholarship had started my association with Cambridge (file 21). There are the usual files connected with publication (files 22-27).

The book came out at the beginning of 1969. It was widely reviewed in legal journals (file 29) and has been frequently cited by various courts (files 33-36). There are files on the citation of the book by the Supreme Court of Canada, the Supreme Court of the United States, and the House of Lords. I have also included a sampling of citation by other courts.
