The builder of peace - St. Albert GazetteWednesday, November 30, 2016
July 2017.Got a suggestion for our next topic? Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
When looking back over 150 years of St. Albert history, one name looms over it all: Father Albert Lacombe. As the founder of this community, he pops up again and again in The Black Robe’s Vision, and has left his mark all over town.
But unless you’re a historian, you might not realize that Lacombe’s works went far beyond St. Albert. He spent just four years here, and about 51 more roaming the nation, building communities and bringing peace wherever he went.
Lacombe was probably the most famous missionary ever to come out west, says retired University of Lethbridge historian Raymond Huel.
“His reputation is virtually legendary.”
This December is the 100th anniversary of his death. That makes this a fitting time to look at the legacy of the one many called The Man of the Good Heart.
A talented man
Lacombe was born Feb. 28, 1827, in St. Sulpice, Lower Canada.
He grew up hearing tales of men who adventured out west such as his Uncle Joseph, who married a Cree woman, says Musée Héritage Museum curator Joanne White. Whereas others might seek to head west as a fur-trader or explorer, Lacombe, likely influenced by his Catholic upbringing, sought to go there as a priest.
In his memoirs, Lacombe writes that he wept tears of joy when his local priest offered to fund his passage into the p...
Heritage activists want master plan to protect Côte-des-Neiges Rd. - Montreal GazetteFriday, September 02, 2016
Family photos show wooden sidewalks, houses and outdoor tennis courts on Côte-des-Neiges.
Pierre Claude built his home on Côte-des-Neiges, on the site of what is today a school near Lacombe Ave. The residence was picked up and moved to the corner of Lacombe and Gatineau Ave., where it today houses a café, during one of the many periods that Côte-des-Neiges was widened.
Like Corbeil, Bergeron said the city’s plan to hang signs with historical descriptions is a good move to educate Montrealers on such forgotten features as the Raimbault Creek.
“Who knows there was a creek there?” she said. “It’s a very good idea to commemorate the history.”
Still, echoing Tremblay and Décarie, Bergeron said the city’s effort to honour Côte-des-Neiges as a founding route should go beyond hanging signs, such as conducting more archeological digs to search for traces of the past.
For his part, Corbeil suggested there are still some buildings along Côte-des-Neiges that evoke the street’s history and that the city should ensure ar...

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 ...
