Administrative History
Morton (Mort) Ainsley (1937-1995) was born in London, Ontario to Esther and Irving Ainsley. Esther (née Rash) was born in Toronto and Irving in Russia; the two met at Stitsky’s textile store on Bathurst Street in Toronto and moved to London in the 1940s. In London, Irving Ainsley owned Ainsley’s dress store and was a co-founder and president of B’nai Israel congregation. The family were friends with the Siskinds and Rubinoffs, going on fishing trips with the Rubinoffs and cruises with others in the Jewish community. Irving loved to film, and filmed Second World War newsreels in the movie theatre.
Morton graduated from the University of Western Ontario School of Business Administration, and then the University of Toronto Law School in 1962. Following graduation, he worked at the Department of Justice and at Minden, Gross, Grafstein and Greenstein. In 1969, he and Sandra Gula were married at Beth Tzedec Synagogue. They had three children, Efrem, Andrew, and Daniel. He died in September 1995 at Toronto General Hospital.

Administrative History
Morton Shulman (1925-2000) was a coroner, an MPP, a physician and an all-around controversial public figure.
Morton Shulman was born in Toronto April 2, 1925, son of David Shulman (?-1947) and Netty Wintrope Schwartz (1898-1985). He was educated at North Toronto Collegiate and received an MD from the University of Toronto in 1948. On 30 May 1950, Shulman married Gloria Bossin, daughter of Isadore and Lena Bossin. They had two children, Dianne and Jeffrey.
Shulman began his career by practising medicine and was first appointed to the Coroner's Office in 1952. He became Chief Coroner for the Municipality of Metropolitan Toronto in 1963. Shulman was elected to the Ontario Legislature in 1967 as the NDP MPP for Toronto's High Park riding and was e-elected in 1971. Publicly he called himself a "socialist millionaire" and authored several books on investment strategies, including Anyone Can Make a Million (1966), The Billion Dollar Windfall (1972), and How to Invest and Profit from Inflation (1979). He also wrote The Coroner (1971) and Member of the Legislature (1973). Shulman also wrote a regular column for the Toronto Sun and hosted a television show call The Shulman Files (1976-1983) on City-TV.
During the 1960s, Shulman's use of the Office of Chief Coroner to lead crusades against the establishment led to his being removed from the position in 1967. A Royal Commission, led by Mr. Justice William Parker, was struck in 1967 to investigate Shulman's allegations that officials in the Attorney-General's Department had suppressed evidence, funds were being wasted, and discrimination influenced appointments of coroners. In 1970, another commission under Mr. Justice Campbell Grant was struck to investigate Shulman's allegations of improper relationships between some employees of the OPP and particular individuals associated with underground criminal activities. Shulman's career as the outspoken Chief Coroner for Metropolitan Toronto was the inspiration for the CBC dramatic television series Wojeck.
After being diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in the early 1980s, Shulman was successful in establishing a business and charitable trust to speed up Health Canada's approval and import of Deprenyl, a drug used in the treatment of Parkinson's Disease. In recognition of his multi-faceted career and public life of advocacy and generosity, Morton Shulman received the Order of Canada in 1993. He died in Toronto on August 17, 2000. ---------------------------------------------
Stewart Saxe is the son of Percy Saxe and Bernice Cohen and the grandson of Morris Saxe, who was responsible for the founding of the Jewish Farm School in Georgetown. Stewart Saxe is currently a lawyer and is married to Dianne (Shulman) Saxe, an environmental lawyer and the daughter of Morty and Gloria Shulman.
