‘All of this is your fault,’ Jaxon Joseph’s mother tells Sidhu - Barrhead LeaderSaturday, March 02, 2019
With no information about Jaxon's condition, the Joseph family, including his sister Taylor, packed their bags and drove to Saskatchewan.
"I hyperventilated all the way to Lloydminster," Chris said.
The family had heard their 20-year-old son had been airlifted to a hospital, but they had no certainty or answers as they drove through the night on the cold winter Saskatchewan highways.
"The minutes and hours of not knowing were the hardest part," Chris said.
They arrived in Saskatoon in the early hours of the morning. The next day, Chris and Taylor went to identify the body of a young man who may have been Jaxon. They searched the body for any familiar signs of their loved one but couldn't provide a positive ID.
It wasn't until Chris went to visit three surviving victims that he realized his son had not been transported to the hospital.
"Right there, that was my moment – the moment that I realized that my son was dead, that he was never taken to the hospital, that his body was still laying on the cold ground with a blanket over his face," he said.
"I now had to go back to the waiting room and confirm the worst news of our lives to our family."
The next day, the Joseph family went to the funeral home to identify Jaxon's body. There were 14 victims to be identified and only six rooms available, so families had to identify their sons in shifts.
"They came back different. They were changed forever and I knew I would be, too."
Today, Chris still carries Jaxon's socks, which he took off his son's feet that day at the funeral home – a decision he says was inspired by the family of fellow Broncos player Stephen Wack, who took a lock of his hair.
"You chose to gamble at that intersection and you lost. And worse yet, we all lost," he told Sidhu.
"I hope some day you can find peace. I hope some day I can find forgiveness."

Success for first annual Tree of Remembrance - Vermilion StandardThursday, January 12, 2017
Though a rewarding experience, Shimko said it took a lot more work than anticipated to pull of the ceremony, and added it wouldn’t have been possible without the generous donation from a family in Lloydminster, as they donated the tree. The installation of the tree came from the support of Lloyd's Limb Service Inc.
“We found some people in Lloyd that had to get rid of a tree because it was encroaching on their home, and they were willing to donate it to us. Then we had Derwin Selte drill the hole and help us set it up. Then we decorated it.”
Following the outdoor service, attendees were invited into the funeral chapel for refreshments.
“It was very well received and we are happy with how it turned out. For some people, it is a sign a remembrance for their loved one, whether it was 10 or 30 years ago. We had really good feedback from it, people were pleased about it, and now we are going to make it an annual thing.”

Khan set to join PC race - St. Albert GazetteFriday, November 04, 2016
MLA Donna Kennedy-Glans, Calgary lawyer Byron Nelson, MLA Sandra Jansen and MLA Richard Starke.
So far, four of the announced candidates are from the Calgary region. Starke is from the Lloydminster-Vermilion region. Khan will be the first candidate from the capital region.
Former St. Albert mayor and current PC party member Richard Plain thinks any candidate out of the capital region may have an advantage in the race.
“I just think that there is a natural inclination to say what part of the province do they come from, not only what their background is. It is a longstanding rivalry between the south and north, which is the Edmonton region and the Calgary region,” Plain said.
So far, a major issue has been the question of whether to unite the right wing parties in Alberta. Jason Kenney was the first to enter the race and proposed to merge the Wildrose and Progressive Conservative parties as one new party. No other candidate has shown support for uniting with the Wildrose.
The final decision won't be made until March, when the party will host a delegated convention. This selection process hasn't been used by the PCs to elect a leader since 1985 and is rare in Canadian politics.
The one-member, one-vote process has been criticized for allowing “two-minute Tories” to dictate the outcome of the leadership race. Candidates were able to temporarily drum up support by selling memberships and win without the support of the party rank and file.
Party members from each of the 87 constituencies will select 15 delegates to choose the next leader. Five of the delegate spots from each constituency are set aside for local party officials. A total of 265 delegate spots are reserved for youth between the ages of 16 and 26.
All candidates will compete until March 18, 2017 when the selected delegates will cast their votes for the party leader.
Khan was attending the Jim Prentice funeral Friday and could not be reached for comment by press time.

Walking Through Grief Society benefits from community barbecue - Vermilion StandardFriday, October 28, 2016
Walking Through Grief offers a safe, supportive, and loving environment for individuals to reconcile with life’s losses. The service is offered in Vermilion, Kitscoty, Lloydminster, Wainwright, and other surrounding communities.
The barbecue also acted as an open door to the employees of Lakeland Funeral Home, to eliminate the reminders of losses, and say thank you to the community.
“This is us giving back and saying thank you to the community as a whole. It is a great thing for us to let the community know we are thankful for their support of our business, and the community spirit that they give out. This is a great gathering place for everyone,” Anderson said.
The barbecue welcomed residents, who had the opportunity to participate in a prize table, live music from local artists Sharlie Donily, Phillip Willis, and Ray Blackmore. An additional fundraising effort came from Nathan James, co-owner of Icicle Bicycle, who donated 50 cents per frozen treat sold.
The other reason for the barbecue is allowing the community to see the employees of Lakeland Funeral Home is a different light, as they are around at someone’s most difficult time.
“Usually, when people are here, families are going through a difficult time, and it's hard for them to see us sometimes; because it reminds them of their loss. It is a small town, we run into each other at the grocery store or the post office, so it is nice for them to see us in this manner,” she said.
Anderson brought the idea for the barbecue from her previous employment in Lethbridge, Alta., and highlighted how great it was to see families they had helped through their grieving process.
“To see them in a different light, where we can be a little bit more relaxed with them, and interact with them in a different mannerism was really nice. When I moved here I wa...

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 ...
