Ryder and Radek see the world - CBC.caWednesday, March 27, 2019
R stickers are being placed around the world in memory of Ryder and Radek. (Facebook, Instagram)
They memorialize two Alberta brothers, Ryder and Radek MacDougall, who were shot to death by their father two years ago in what police called an "atrocious" double-murder-suicide.
The boys were 13 and 11 years old, and had been living temporarily with their father, Corry MacDougall, in Spruce Grove so they could play hockey there.
Tracy Stark, the boys' mother, was the one who discovered their bodies. She and her husband, Brent Stark, were supposed to pick up Ryder and Radek at their dad's home for the holidays. Instead, they found "a nightmare," she said.
Since that day, Stark has been determined to build a legacy for Ryder and Radek that would make them proud.
"I'm their voice now and it gives me a mission to spread awareness, so this doesn't keep happening."
‘Give them wings'
The people who post R&R stickers give the boys a chance to live on in places they'll never get to visit, Stark said.
"They just take these two boys ... and give them a life, give them wings, take them somewhere. It makes you feel like they're there with you at that moment."
An Arizona band called Promise to Myself is taking the stickers on tour with them to give to fans.
Photos of the stickers from around the world are posted in a Facebook group, Ryder and Radek's Picture Place, and on Instagram with the hashtag #rnrseetheworld.

Convoy evokes Canadian pride in North Bay - Vermilion StandardWednesday, March 27, 2019
Monday afternoon.Caron, of North Bay, was waiting in the parking lot at Motion Canada on Gormanville Road for almost 100 vehicles, from small cars to big rigs, to pull in on their journey from Alberta to Parliament Hill with a message for federal politicians.
"This is about more than pipelines," Caron says. "This is about government. This is about all the provinces having different issues. It's about getting back the political process."The United We Roll Convoy for Canada, a caravan of transports, work vehicles and personal automobiles, left Red Deer, Alta., last Thursday bound for Ottawa and a protest on Parliament Hill Tuesday."The media and the government have divided the provinces," Caron says. "We want to fight for our freedoms and our rights. We want fair government.""We are watching Justin Trudeau slowly strip away every right we had," Sarah Zaldinger, of Timmins, said as about two dozen supporters waited for the convoy to arrive, sharing updates on when the parade would roll into town."He is stripping the future of my children and their children and their children," Zaldinger said. "They are being set up for failure. Their rights, their future, will all be destroyed if we don't stand up now."Although she was not part of the convoy to North Bay, Zaldinger was going to join it Tuesday morning for the rally in Ottawa as part of her own objective of "direct democracy."And direct democracy is possible, she said.Zaldinger pointed to a recent Amber Alert sent to cellphone users across the province ...
