Thinking about how sad I feel at Allan's death, I realized that I knew Allan for over 40 years and worked with him closely at the Committee on Television and the Council of Canadian Filmmakers in the 70s. Over this span of time, I was always amazed at his gentleness, generosity of spirit, and erudition.
 Few filmmakers had such an impact on their community as Allan did, which he was always trying
to improve, and he was always open to the young - a natural mentor.
