    I have in my possession a serigraph by York Wilson entitled, ” The Auction, Belfountain ’41”. The artwork, 30″by 40″, shows a dejected looking farmer leaning against the corner of a barn, while an auctioneer is standing atop a buggy auctioning off the farmer’s belongings, a crowd of other farmers surround the buggy. Apparently the “original” is in the Art Gallery of Ontario. This copy was obtained by someone who worked as a teletype operator for Time Magazine, who at that time had an office in the West Block of Parliament Hill. When Time cleared out, they gave away the contents of their office, including “The Auction”. I would like to know if you folks can tell me anything more about this painting.

    I came upon your June 2008 issue. I know it’s almost 10 years ago but I knew the fellow, Nik Habermel, whose poem you published. In the article you said he lived on Manitoulin Island when he died. He died on Coburn Island.

    Thank you,

    Vicki Stone

      Yes, he died on Cockburn Island, you are right Vicki. He died doing one of the many things he loved. I’m not so sure he would have wanted to be remembered that way though. I was married to Nik but although I knew him in the most intimate way anyone can know another person I don’t think anyone really knew him. I believe he didn’t really want anyone to know him. He was generous to a fault and would help anyone in need but to the ones he loved and who loved him it was a different story. I hope his memory lives on in the most positive way possible because I do know that that’s what he would have anted.
