FALLEN WORKERS: Bridgework in Merritton claims worker - St. Catharines StandardThursday, December 14, 2017
Pollard was the son of Abraham and Lillian (Gillard) Pollard. Few details are known about his early life. He was married in October 1912 to Hannah Mary Adams (born December 1892) at Botwood, in the District of Twillingate, Newfoundland.Hannah (a.k.a. Annie or Anna) was the daughter of Adam and Matilda (Jenkins) Adams. Two children were born as a result of this union, a son, Edward, and a daughter, Matilda.In November 1917, Pollard was certified as a fireman and was living at Reserve Mines in Cape Breton, N.S. At some point after this, the family moved to the Niagara area.The 1921 census showed that the Pollard family lived on Burgar Street in Welland. Matilda Adams, Pollard’s mother-in-law, had remarried to Elkanah Sheppard, a carpenter who lived just one street away on Garner Avenue. Pollard was described in records at that time as being employed as a labourer. He and his family were active members in the Salvation Army, and Pollard served as a colour sergeant.Pollard was eventually hired as an iron worker (bridgeman) by Canadian Bridge Co. On the morning of Sept. 7, 1929, he had reported to work at Bridge No. 5 which was under construction where the old St. David’s Road (now Glendale Avenue) crosses the canal. The newspaper account of the events of that day reported that Pollard and his co-worker, Murdock McArthur, were underneath the bridge, removing scaffolding and handing the planks to the workmen above. At the same time they were responsible for maintaining at a certain height the jacks that were under the bridge.At about 11:20 a.m., Pollard had climbed up onto a narrow lat...

Conservation group says Alberta grizzly, Bear 148, shot dead in BC - CTV NewsThursday, April 12, 2018
EDMONTON -- Conservationists are mourning the death of a female grizzly bear that had been moved from a popular area west of Calgary this summer to a remote park in northwest Alberta.
Stephen Legault of the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative said Bear 148 was shot by a hunter on Sunday after wandering into British Columbia from its new home.
Legault said the bear was just becoming old enough to have cubs.
"What is really sad is that we have lost the potential that this grizzly bear represented for the further recovery of the threatened species in Alberta," he said Wednesday.
He noted that grizzly bears are often killed after being struck on highways and by trains.
"The fact that this bear was killed by a hunter illustrates the fact that there are many threats to these animals."
The B.C. government plans to ban the killing of grizzly bears for trophy, but not until after this hunting season.
Parks Canada and the Alberta government later confirmed the death of Bear 148.
"This outcome underlines the need for more collaboration across jurisdictions to co-ordinate wildlife and people management at a landscape level," Parks Canada said in an email.
Bear 148 was moved in July from its range near Banff and Canmore, Alta., to Kakwa Wildland Park.
The bear never hurt anyone but had gotten too close to people dozens of times since it was born in the Banff National Park a...
A reflective Father Bob Haggarty looks back on his time in Lillooet - Bridge River Lillooet NewsThursday, April 12, 2018
I said to the seniors, ‘If you can’t get along with the Catholics, you’re free to leave!’” It should be noted the seniors have not gone anywhere. Originally from Alberta, Father Bob was ordained in 1971 as a priest in the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI). The Order was founded in 1816 and has had a presence in British Columbia since 1858. The apostolic Oblates focused on outreach to remote and/or wilderness areas, which B.C. was at the time of the Gold Rush. “The Oblates were there, right at the beginning of the colonization of B.C.,” adds Father Bob, who says those early priests were so young that they were described as altar boys. He can quote the early history of the Oblates in B.C. chapter and verse, but is also fascinated by Canadian military history. He says that’s related to one of his mother’s brothers, who went overseas with the RCAF during the Second World War and was killed in action. “My mother had all these letters and pictures but had no time to organize them. But I thought, ‘If we don’t value his contributions, who’s going to?’ He sacrificed his life for this country, so I felt I owed him that and so I took every photo and every scrap of paper and put them in order.” After he began living here, Father Bob became intrigued by the history of local veterans, particularly the “Boys of Lillooet” whose names are inscribed on the cenotaph on the lawn outside the District Office. “I said to myself, ‘Who are you? Who are you?’” He then spent years researching their lives and eventually produced two volumes (World War One and World War Two) of priceless biographical material - old black and white and sepia photos, precious personal letters written from the front lines, military records and his own conversations with their siblings and other family members - that preserves the memory of the “Boys of Lillooet” for posterity. “Those fellows grew up here, lived within a five or 10-mile radius of downtown Lillooet and they never came back,” he says softly. “I thought they should be remembered and we should be proud of them.” Father Bob believes “history is made up of local people. It’s more than what Prince Charles has done. It’s people who are walking down the street. There’s history there, too.” He continues, “And it’s a good story if you go back and find out what happened. I remember hearing an interview with Mark Forsythe on the CBC and he was coming to Lytton for a public forum on the Gold Rush. It was also about the opening up of the Lillooet area and it was an eye-opener, too. I believe in history and I like to know history. I think the history of Lillooet makes you appreciate the place where you live. And for visitors, so much of B.C.’s history took place within a half mile of here.” He says, “Sometimes I’ll go down to Seton Lake and just sit there and I’ll ask people who are visiting for the day if they know where they are and what happened here. It makes it more interesting for them if they know some of the local history.” Father Bob acknowledges he’s “dealing with the reality of being a senior” and some health challenges involving his eyesight, but hopes to continue living here. “Why would I want to leave Lillooet?” he asks. “The environment here...
