Mr. David Michael Ablett

August 5, 2010
I have many fond memories about the time I spent with David. From our weekend visits to the golf course to our conversations over a wide array of topics while enjoying a glass of scotch. But most of all I will remember David's kindness and his gift of knowledge. I learned as much about life and what it means to be a good person as I did about academics. For this I am truly grateful. David will be truly missed.

Dear Colleen and family,

I was very sorry to hear about David passing away. I had the honor and the pleasure of working with him at TSX. He was such a wonderful man, his generous nature and sharing his remarkable stories with his great sense of humor always made working with him a true joy. I have great memoires of the time we golfed together and when I last saw David at the BBQ you both so graciously held at your home. My thoughts are with you and the Ablett family at this very difficult time.

With my deepest sympathy,
Jodi

Colleen, Jonathan and Elizabeth,

David combined a great analytical mind with equally great creative imagination. We met in Washington in 1970 when I was trying to get an environmental impact analysis for the Alaska Pipeline proposal. We got to know one another well over the next four years. It was David who suggested I embark on the lawsuit that eventually achieved that goal. In any event, he wrote about the issue at least once a month, the Sun published his stories, sometimes on the front page, and it became a major issue in US Canadian relations. Ultimately it took a resolution of the United States Congress to overturn the favourable ruling of the US federal courts. A four year saga of activist journalism with David at the center of it from beginning to end.

You have lost a truly wonderful person.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

David and Sandra Anderson, Victoria.
