University of St. Michael’s College Alumni Newsletter
Vol. 38, Number 2, Fall 2000
New Residence at St. Michael’s
21st Kelly Lecture
Spring Reunion
Double Blue
A Letter from the Editor
The University of
St. Michael’s
College Alumni Newsletter
Welcome to the fall 2000 Issue of the DOUBLE BLUE. Our splendid cover, I am sure, evokes
many happy memories of returning to the campus at St. Michael’s. For the first time, the
Class of 2004 will encounter and form new impressions. Fall is a season of new beginnings.
In this issue you will learn of a significant new beginning. Construction has begun on a new
residence. This has created an atmosphere of excitement. Our alumnae profiles introduce two
remarkable graduates - Lucy Booth Martyn, SMC �25 and Karen Hughes, SMC �87.
The contributions of both, I am sure you will agree, reflect the ongoing legacy of St. Michael’s to
our communities. DOUBLE BLUE is full of pictures that tell of the activities of the past year.
On 30 May 2000, St. Michael’s welcomed home the new President of the University of Toronto,
Robert Birgeneau and his wife, Mary Catherine Ware Birgeneau, both graduates of SMC.
A successful Spring Reunion 2000 brought together hundreds of alumni from far and wide.
The Class of �50 was particularly exuberant in their celebrations. Father Peter Mosteller’s
(class of �50) reflections in his homily at the Alumni Liturgy struck a chord with the
participants. His advice “to live life and to live a worthy life” highlighted his theme that
“Everything I need to know, I learned at St.Mike’s.” Spring Reunion 2000 was capped by the
opening of the newly restored Father Robert Madden Hall.
The Annual Fund, Faith Hope and Charity, was very successful. The increased participation in
this effort reminds us once again of the seriousness of the commitment members of the
St. Michael’s community take to this institution. Your response is gratifying.
One feature, “Letters to the Editor,” that we hoped to continue does not appear. Our
audience seems happy with the recent changes for the newsletter. That is the good news,
but we would like to hear more from you. Of course the traditional letter will do, but do not
hesitate to call, fax, e-mail or any other way to be in touch.
Visit our updated website - www.utoronto.ca/stmikes. Check for the latest Alumni activities
and look for the past issues of the DOUBLE BLUE.
I want to thank the Editorial Committee, staff and all the contributors who have made
this issue possible. Enjoy your read.

21st Kelly Lecture
Fr. Robert Taft SJ
The Year 2000 is a banner year for the Kelly Lecture series. We are
pleased to announce that the Right Reverend Archimandrite Robert
F. Taft SJ is to present the 21st Kelly Lecture on Friday 1 December
2000. This special lecture, entitled “Anamnesis, not Amnesia:
The Healing of Memories and the Problem of Uniatism,” carries on
the purpose of the former St. Andrew and St. Peter Lectures,
established by St. Michael’s to explore relations between the Roman
Catholic, Eastern Catholic and Eastern and Oriental Orthodox
Churches. The initiators of the St. Andrew and St. Peter Lectures
have welcomed this incorporation into the schedule of the Kelly
Lecture series because it ensures the continuation of this important
ecumenical venture.
Rev. Robert Taft SJ, a Byzantine Catholic priest and member of the
Society of Jesus, was born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island.
He was ordained a priest in the Byzantine Slavonic (Russian) Rite in
1963. After completing his M.A. in Philosophy at Boston College in
1956, he spent three years teaching at Baghdad College, Baghdad,
Iraq. He returned to complete an M.A. in Russian studies at Fordham
University in 1961. He received a Licentiate degree in 1964 from
Weston College (Mass.) and continued his studies in Europe,
receiving a Doctorate in Eastern Christian Studies from the Pontifical
Oriental Institute in Rome in 1970.
In 1970, Fr. Taft was appointed to the faculty of the Pontifical
Oriental Institute, where he is currently Professor of Oriental Liturgy
and Vice-Rector. He has been a visiting professor at Notre Dame
University since 1974. An internationally recognized scholar and
superb teacher, Fr. Taft is also a prolific writer, having authored over
250 works. In 1986, he published The Liturgy of the Hours in the
East and West: The Origins of the Divine Office and Its Meaning for
Today, which received the “Best Book in Theology Award” from the
Catholic Press Association of the US and Canada. In 1982, Fr. Taft
was appointed by Pope John Paul II as Consultor to the Special
Commission for Liturgy of the Vatican Congregation for the
Oriental Churches.
We are excited and honoured to have a scholar of Fr. Taft’s academic
stature continue, in the Kelly Lecture series, the tradition of the
St. Andrew and St. Peter Lectures. We extend a particularly warm
invitation to our friends from the Eastern Catholic andOrthodox Churches.
Please join us on Friday 1 December 2000, at 8:00 P.M. in Sam
Sorbara Hall at St. Michael’s College. There is no charge for
admission, no tickets are needed, and all are welcome.

A Letter from the Alumni President
One of the hallmarks of the spirit and tradition of St. Michael’s is its
strong sense of an inclusive community. I left St. Mike’s well armed
to face the challenges of the future. It has been my good fortune to
become involved again in this unique community of friends.
I want to introduce myself. I am a graduate, SMC Class of �70. I warn
you - if Bob Shiley SMC �68 calls to ask for help for SMC, take care.
I received such a call in 1995. I was asked to help on the first Spring
Memories Celebration. Father Bob Madden then asked me to join the
Alumni Association’s Board of Directors. As a Board member, I was
involved with the important strategy sessions undertaken on the
watch of Maureen Hart-Biason. This began an ambitious effort to
revitalize the Alumni Association and its Board. A review of the
Board’s structure resulted in a greater emphasis to be placed on
committee work. This would require greater alumni involvement.
I want to celebrate the work of Maureen and her hard working
executive - Marie Daly Cook, Vice President, SMC �91, Rosemary
Chambers, SMC �91 and John Brown, SMC �78. They have set the
course well.
In 1998, I was asked to become a member of the Executive as
Treasurer and head up the finance committee. Laura Syron, SMC �88,
a committee member, was instrumental in developing a five-year
strategic plan. After a successful Annual Fund in 1998-99, the goal
set for the next Annual Fund 1999 - 2000 effort, better known at
St. Michael’s as Faith, Hope and Charity, was set. It was very
successful. Not only was the goal exceeded but also the participation
rate rose by 24%, as did the average gift amount by 17%. This was
propelled by the efforts of the President’s Circle Committee under
the direction of Victor Dodig SMC �88. Next year under the direction
of Michael Henry, SMC �91, the strategic plan continues.

My hopes as President for the next two years are to encourage
increased participation and support from our alumni and friends.
This intellectual, emotional and financial support is a strong lifeline
to the ongoing vitality of St. Michael’s. The strength of the Alumni
Association is not just the activity and commitment of its Board.
We have had a good start, but have a long way to go. We need you!

Alumni Profile
Karen Hughes �87
Two things that are immediately apparent about Karen Hughes are
her dedication and her sense of humour, qualities that contributed
to her induction into the U of T Sports Hall of Fame this past June.
Recognised for her involvement in championship ice hockey and
soccer teams, Hughes has made remarkable achievements, and not
only as a player. She has been the head coach of the Varsity Blues
Women’s Ice Hockey team since 1993, following three years as
assistant, continuing a trend of activity and involvement that dates
back to her undergraduate days. Enrolled at St. Michael’s, “I played
soccer for St. Mike’s in my first year” and also refereed hockey at the
college while excelling in Varsity sports.
“It’s a really great honour,” she said of her induction. “I don’t think
you realize it until you’re at the event, with all these other people
who’ve done fabulous things over their careers in university sports.”
Hughes was in good company. In addition to her contributions to
U of T sports, Hughes has coached ice hockey at the national level,
travelling as far afield as Sweden and Finland.“The best part of all is at
the end of the game when we have won and your team lines up on the
blue line, and they play the national anthem and raise the flag of the
winning country. This makes you very proud to be a Canadian, and is
something very special about international competition.”
Still, what she loves most is working with her U of T hockey team.
“Coaching them, you teach them a little bit more about other things
than just playing hockey, like how to get along with each other, how
to balance their time, providing a good support group for them.
Our players are fun. They make me laugh; we have a good time.”
Having fun is important to Hughes-”you can challenge yourself to be
the best athlete you can be, but at the same time you should enjoy
doing it”-but clearly, so is constant improvement.
“I like to do things well, so when I became head coach at U of T,
I wanted to become a better coach.” She took certification courses
and is now a level four coach. “Working with Canadian Hockey is a
great help to me with U of T because I get to go to coaching
seminars. People who coach in the NHL come and talk. It’s been a
great development opportunity for me, from a coaching perspective.”
Improving as a coach allows Hughes to do a better job of helping her
players improve, too. “You can make people better. My team wasn’t
that good two years ago, but we still did well.” One of her former
players, a recently graduated masters of engineering student, came
to the U of T team as a beginner player. “She was determined to play
hockey, and this year she was a CIAU All Canadian.”
Exciting though her own hockey career was, Hughes doesn’t miss
being a player. She still skates with the team every day, and
ultimately, she loves to coach. “The best part for me is, I like to see
my players in the university get better, improve, graduate, get a job,
and go on and be successful in whatever they’re doing.”
Above: Karen Hughes
She’s especially grateful for her position with the Varsity Blues,
where she doesn’t have to think about buying equipment or making
travel arrangements. “U of T is great. They make it possible for
someone like me to be a part-time coach. You get to do what you
like to do, more. It’s the perfect place to coach.”
Balancing her time is important, as Hughes combines her Varsity and
National Hockey coaching with her job as a Senior Analyst with the
Resources and Economic Development Branch of the Management
Board Secretariat. It was also a factor when she was a student,
working toward a Bachelor of Commerce degree. Though she did have
five years as an undergraduate, “you actually find when you do
varsity sports, you don’t waste time.”
Now, “I use my vacation to go and do national team hockey.”
She works with the U of T team for seven months of the year, and
looks after scheduling, monitors training programs, and participates
in recruiting during the other five. After maintaining such a fastpaced schedule for so long, what would Hughes do to fill the gap if
she ever stopped coaching?
Hughes doesn’t hesitate. “Golf,” she says, laughing.

Alumni Profile
Lucy Booth Martyn �25
Things were pretty different on the U of T campus during the days
that Lucy Booth Martyn spent as a St. Michael’s College student in
English and History. Frappuccinos were nowhere to be found, tuition
was well under $500 per year, and Robarts had yet to loom large over
Harbord Street. From 1921 to 1925, Lucy Booth Martyn attended
Loretto College, then on St. George Street, living nearby on Barton
Ave. with her parents.
In addition to being an outstanding undergraduate student,
Mrs. Martyn was very much involved in school life, “I was President
of our Student Council in 1923. I remember frantically organizing for
our February dance! I think that my extracurricular activity
influenced my academics for the better. My membership in the
Literary Society ignited my lifelong interest in literature.”
This interest has indeed been lifelong. Mrs. Martyn completed her
Master’s degree in Canadian History in 1936 after having worked as a
supply teacher in northern Ontario for five years. Forty-two years
later, her first book (of five) on the history of Toronto, was
published: Toronto: 100 Years of Grandeur. “I was able to continue to
study and write while my husband, Murdoch, and I raised our
children (Diana and Donald). I’m sure they remember me at the
books and frequenting the library throughout their grade school and
high school years.”
The Face of Early Toronto, Mrs. Martyn’s third book, was published
when she was 79 years old. It was a real winner, garnishing the
prestigious City of Toronto Book Award for historical non-fiction in
1983. Mrs. Martyn’s daughter Diana commented, “My mother caught
the academic bug at Loretto and it never left her.” Mrs. Martyn
agrees, “I will never forget the influence that the Loretto sisters had
on my life. They were smart, gentle and sweet, and they made the
academic experience serious but joyful for us young women, an
experience one never wanted to end.”
A particularly favourite memory involves one of the Loretto sisters
and her gift for drawing her students into the material they were
learning. “Mother Estelle always had something interesting for us to
do. In my second year, she decided that our Latin class needed to
get a better idea of what we’d been talking about, so she decided
that we should stage a Roman wedding. We spoke our parts in Latin
and wore full, proper costumes. I was the bride!”

Mrs. Martyn was in the SMC spotlight once again more recently.
This year, she and one other graduate of the U of T Class of �25 were
honoured with the Chancellor’s Circle Medal on the occasion of their
75th Spring Reunion. Of this, Mrs. Martyn stated, “I couldn’t believe
that so many days had passed since my time at Loretto. But the
experience is always with me.”
Lucy Booth Martyn is the quintessential SMC alumna smart, gentle,
and sweet, the very way she described the Loretto sisters who helped
her prepare for the 75 years (so far!) of life after St. Mike’s.

Leonard Boyle
Memorial Chair
The Pontifical Institute of
Medieval Studies has launched a
campaign to raise two million U.S.
dollars to establish the Leonard E.
Boyle Chair in Manuscript Studies.
The Chair was announced by Fr.
James McConica, CSB, Praeses of
the Pontifical Institute, at the
Boyle Memorial Lecture last
March, and again at the annual
gathering of medievalists in May,
in Kalamazoo, Michigan, where a
special session was dedicated
to Fr. Boyle.
Leonard Boyle, who died in Rome
on 25 October 1999, was a Fellow
of the Institute from 1961 to
1984, when he was appointed
Vatican Librarian. At the Institute,
he taught to an ever-expanding
circle of students and colleagues.
His remarkable talents were honed
at PIMS, where he was building on
the resources and scholarly
tradition established by its
founders. His renown as a teacher

and scholar served as a magnet for
medievalists from around the
world, and continued to do so during his tenure as Prefect of the
Vatican Library from 1984-1997. The Chair will serve to honour Fr.
Boyle’s memory and to secure in Toronto the legacy of his approach
to research, directed always to the disciplines necessary to exploit
original sources.
Fr. Boyle was born in Ireland where later, he entered the Dominican
Order, studying first in Ireland and then at the Dominican Studium
Generale of Blackfriars, Oxford. Following ordination in 1949, he
completed his Oxford D.Phil. thesis, a study of the works of William
of Pagula. From 1955 to 1957, he worked on the Calendar of Papal
Letters in the Vatican Archives, and from 1956 to 1961, he taught at
the Angelicum, Rome. In 1961, he came to the Pontifical Institute at
St. Michael’s College. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Historical
Society in 1963, the Medieval Academy of America in 1980, and an
Officer of the Order of Canada in 1987.
His departure from Toronto was a loss deeply felt by friends, students,
and colleagues throughout North America. He continued to publish in
the remarkable range of subjects that epitomized the unity of medieval
studies as a discipline, including canon law, codicology, pastoralia,
archaeology (most famously on the pre-history of San Clemente in
Rome), historical theology, and the history of education. At the time of
his death he was the President of the Leonine Commission, the
extended project to produce a modern, critical edition of the works of
Thomas Aquinas. Nevertheless, it is as a great teacher that he will be
best remembered. Accordingly, a Chair here in his name will be
his living memorial.

Books and Lecture Series,
Alum’s Legacy to St. Mike’s
Fred Furlong �51 was captivated by the capital ships of the Second
World War. Influenced early in life by his father’s love of ships and
anything naval, he acquired an extensive collection of books on the
history of the ships and of the period of WW II. After his death on
11 February 1999, this valuable collection was left to the John M.
Kelly Library. Louise Girard, Chief Librarian, commented that this is a
welcomed addition to the library’s current holdings.
Fred Furlong had a deep sense of gratitude to the Basilians and to
St. Mike’s. He thoroughly enjoyed his student days. He was an avid
debater and on one occasion challenged the Right Honorable Paul
Martin SMC �25 (father of the present Canadian Federal Minister of
Finance, himself an SMC graduate of �61) in a Hart House debate.
Fred developed a passion for history, with an eclectic bent to his
interests. Upon graduation he began a life-long career in education,
receiving M.Ed. in 1961. Initially a history teacher at the middle
school level, Fred moved into guidance. This led him into
administration. In 1972, he became a Senior Administrator for the
North York Board of Education. Well thought of in this role, he did
not suffer lightly those who shortchanged the students. Fred loved
to travel, as his frequent trips to Europe testify
- a favorite locale was Paris.
In addition to the generous donation of his beloved books,
Mr. Furlong left St. Mike’s funds to endow a series of history lectures
in the College’s Christianity and Culture program. The first is
scheduled for spring 2001. Check the spring issue of Double Blue
for time and place.
St. Michael’s deeply appreciates the generosity of Fred Furlong and
his commitment to seeing that spirit and traditions of his alma
mater are carried on.

New Millennium Golf Classic
On Tuesday, July 25th, St. Mike’s welcomed 120 alumni and friends
to the first annual alumni golf tournament at Angus Glen Golf Club
in Markham, Ontario (course of the Canadian Open in 2002).
Edmond Odette, �47, was Honorary Chair for the event assisted by
Co-Chairs, Joseph Sorbara, �63, and Doris Lau, who did all the work.
It was a smashing success! The funds raised will be used for
the new residence.
Above: Desmond, Eva and Fr. Robert Madden.
A large contingent of notable graduates and friends participated in
the event. A reception and dinner followed where our guests had a
chance to meet with former teachers and Basilian friends.
Who’s Eva?
It’s just high time that USMC alumni get to know better a woman
who has, for over a decade, been at the epicenter of just about
everything going on in the Office of Alumni and Development. For all
you alumni who have heard Eva’s voice on the phone over the years
and have asked, “Who is Eva Wong?” here is the scoop...
Eva has been with USMC for over 12 years now, hired by Father Robert
Madden in 1988 (“One of the few smart things I ever did,” he
commented). Eva was Father’s “right-hand-woman” in Alumni Affairs
up until his retirement in 1998 and is now Alumni Associate, working
closely with the Director of Alumni Affairs, Mary Ellen Burns.
But life for Eva did not begin at St. Mike’s (though we like to think
it got better at that point). Before Eva began working at U of T in
the Ophthalmology department, she arrived in Canada from Hong
Kong in 1972 and soon after married her husband, Desmond, in
Toronto. They moved to Sault St. Marie, where Desmond completed
his chartered accountancy studies, and the two started their family
of three girls, Alison, Evelyn and Janice.
Since joining Father Madden, Eva has just about done it all in her
time with USMC: photography, event planning, preparing the
newsletter, alumni communications, providing support for the Board,
and overall troubleshooting. In fact, “shooting” did figure obliquely
in Eva’s job once. “I remember a few years ago, a distraught friend of
a former staff member made violent threats against our office. If
you’ve ever wondered why we had peepholes in our doors in Alumni
Hall, that was the reason! You’ll notice mine was a lot lower than
Father Donovan’s.”

Recently, new responsibilities have given Eva better occasion to get
out of the office and get to know students and alumni. “When I try
to picture a favourite event or memory, it’s so difficult, there are so
many. The events are wonderful, though; they help me see and get
to know everyone - Spring Reunion, the Kelly Lecture, retreats. It’s
such a joy to see each one being a success in its own way.”
Eva plans to take some vacation shortly after this issue of the
Double Blue is laid to rest! Undoubtedly, during “Eva’s Holiday
Time,” the most frequently asked question by the callers to the
Alumni Affairs Office will not be “Who’s Eva ?” but “WHERE is Eva ?”

New Residence
A New Residence for St. Michael’s
Aesthetics and practicality are once again working in tandem at
St. Michael’s College, where a new residence is under constructionthe first new building on campus since the Kelly Library, designed by
John J. Farrugia, was completed in 1969.
Over the last thirty years, the number of students registered at St.
Michael’s has far outstripped the number of residence rooms. With a
current enrolment of 3,500-3,600 students (and the same number of
rooms as were available when enrolment stood at under 1,000) fewer
students have an opportunity to experience on-campus living at St.
Michael’s. The elimination of grade 13 in 2003 further increases the
need for residence space, as even larger numbers will be seeking
campus accommodation in that year particularly.
In choosing to address the need for increased on-campus
accommodation, St. Michael’s took into consideration the
architectural profile of the campus. Odette Hall (Cloverhill),
including the initial portion of St. Basil’s Church, constructed in
1856, was designed by William Hay and is the building in longest
continuous academic use on the U of T campus. Additions were made
to this first College building and the Church in the 19th and early
20th Centuries. In 1936, the Teefy, More, Fisher, and Pontifical
Institute complex, designed by Arthur Holmes, opened on Queen’s
Park; two years later, the main section of Brennan Hall, also
designed by Holmes, was built. Montreal architect Ernest Cormier
designed Carr Hall, which opened in 1954.
St. Michael’s takes this architectural heritage seriously as architect
Kent Rawson executes a series of carefully planned projects to house
more academic departments as well as design the new residence. The
beautifully renovated Odette Hall is now home to the SMC Principal’s
Office, faculty and administrative offices for St. Michael’s and U of T.
Belisle House has been transformed from a men’s residence into
offices for the President, Alumni Affairs and Development, and
Continuing Education. This academic enrichment of St. Michael’s
underlines the importance of each new architectural decision.
“We studied half a dozen different options for the new residence
building,” Rawson said, but ultimately the underused space behind
Windle, Phelan, and Belisle Houses was selected as the site for the new
residence. The close proximity of the newest to the oldest building on
campus led Rawson to design a structure closely matching Odette Hall,
complete with pitched roof, dormers, and gables.
The result is not only a beautiful building, but also a state of the art
residence. Each of the 180 single-occupancy rooms will have a sink,
Internet access, and individually controlled air conditioning.
Handicapped residents will be accommodated in large, barrier free
rooms, and have access to both an elevator and a wheelchair lift.
Each floor will be a self-contained �house’ with a central lounge
facing out on the new gardens planned for the front of Odette Hall.
The basement area will feature two music rooms.
This addition of on-campus residence rooms will also bring the
availability of men’s and women’s accommodation at the College into
balance. Recognizing a trend for the proportion of women students
in Arts and Science programs to increase over time, the building has
been designed to allow an easy conversion of individual floors to
women’s residence space, to maintain that balance in the future.
The entire campus will benefit from the alterations created by the
new building. The existing driveway running in front of St. Basil’s
Church and between Windle and Phelan House to Elmsley Place will
be closed to vehicular traffic and replaced by a walkway and a raised
pedestrian plaza outside the doors of the Church. The nineteen trees
necessarily removed for construction will be replaced by 33 maples,
birches, and oaks. The building is designed to accommodate the
silver maple at present growing behind Phelan House, and a row of
flowering crab trees will be planted along the walkway that links the
west side of the building to Elmsley Place.
The building, scheduled for occupancy in September of 2001, will
have financial as well as visual impact. Thanks to support from the
U of T and individual donors, part of the $11.4 million financing has
been covered. However, “we’ll need $3 million from our alumni and
friends,” said Brian O’Malley, Executive Director of Alumni Affairs
and Development.
There is no shortage of opportunities to participate in this exciting
project. One St. Michael’s graduate has offered to contribute over
$100,000 for the fibre optics and wiring to connect every student
room to the U of T computer backbone and the Internet.
Opportunities are also available for alumni to �buy’ and name a
residence room.

Annual Fund
Faith, Hope and Charity
The Annual Fund 2000 - 2001
at St. Michael’s
St. Michael’s College alumni have long been known and admired in
the U of T community, and beyond, for their generous support of the
Annual Fund. Last year added further lustre to that well deserved
reputation. The 1999-2000 “Faith, Hope and Charity” Annual Fund
Campaign was very successful. Your donations to the Annual Fund
grew by 40%. The size of your average gift increased by 17%, and
most importantly, your participation jumped by 24%. These results
are bringing tangible benefits to St. Michael’s and to its current
students. Your contributions have helped St. Michael’s develop and
maintain its academic programs in Christianity and Culture and in
Celtic Studies, as well as its special student facilities, such as the
Chaplaincy, Scholarships and Bursaries and the John M. Kelly Library.
Your assistance continues to be very important to St. Michael’s.
Thank you.
Last year’s Annual Fund response has encouraged the Alumni
Association to aim higher this year. For the 2000-2001 Annual Fund
Campaign we are working to boost participation and to raise
$1,000,000. This total goal would mean an increase of about 15% in
donations. We believe that we can reach this mark, but obviously
only with your help. The total amount raised, however crucial it is to
the College’s mission, is not as important as the level of your
participation. We would like more and more alumni to become
actively involved in the St. Michael’s Annual Fund enterprise by
making some gift, whatever its size.
Thank you again for your previous generous support of
St. Michael’s College.

A Way To Help
Gifting Insurance Company Shares
Changes in the tax rules affecting the gifting of appreciated stock
and the demutualization of insurance companies could change your
charitable giving strategy.
The 1997 federal budget contained changes designed to make the
gifting of appreciated stock to charities tax effective. While twothirds of capital gains are normally included in income as a taxable
capital gain, if you make a gift of appreciated stock and debt
instruments of publicly-traded companies to qualified charities
(including St. Michael’s) before 2002, the capital gains inclusion rate
is one-third. You will be issued a charitable receipt equal to the
value of the gift. A tax credit based on the amount of the
charitable receipt will be sufficient to offset the tax arising in
respect of the capital gain. Any excess credit can be used to offset
income from other sources, subject to certain limits, and can be
carried forward for up to five years.
Over the past year, a number of Canadian insurance companies have
demutualized and become public companies. If you received shares,
there was no immediate tax consequence to you. For purposes of
computing future capital gains, however, the adjusted cost base of
these shares to you is zero. On a sale, two-thirds of the proceeds
realized on a sale of these shares, net of expenses, will be included
in income as a taxable capital gain. Many have described these
shares as “found money”.
Bringing the two events together could change your charitable giving
strategy in 2000 and 2001. By giving the demutualized shares
directly to qualified charities (including St. Michael’s) before 2002:
- one-third of the resulting capital gain will be
included in income;
- you will receive a charitable donation receipt equal
to the value of the shares;
- the charitable donation tax credit should be sufficient to
offset the taxes payable on the capital gain arising
from gift of the shares;
- excess tax credits can be used to offset the taxes
payable on other income in the year of the gift or
five years carried forward.
Consult your financial or tax planner concerning this and other
charitable giving strategies.
