Former Oakville mayor Harry Barrett has died at the age of 93 - InsideHalton.comWednesday, March 27, 2019
German soldiers approaching them with their hands up.
Barrett and his comrade took the men prisoner and during questioning it was revealed the Germans had been manning a machine gun, which they pointed at the two Canadian soldiers as they approached.
The group ultimately decided not to open fire and surrender, reasoning a larger force must be nearby since these two Canadians were strolling about the town in broad daylight.
"It was just the thing to do," said Barrett about going to war.
"You were expected to join up. It was an adventure. At 18 you think you're immortal. That nothing is going to happen to you. Some of the near misses you have … you shudder in your boots when you think about it now, but you didn't think anything of it then."
Barrett is survived by his daughters Carol and Laurie, his grandsons Chris and Dan, his niece Anne, his great-nephew Ben, his great-niece Amy, and his great-great niece Michaela.
He was predeceased by his wife Jackie, his brother Jack, his sister-in-law Emma, and his son-in-law Roger.
A visitation will be held at Kopriva Taylor Community Funeral Home, 64 Lakeshore Rd. W., on Sunday, Dec. 2 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
A funeral service for Barrett will be held at St. John's United Church at 262 Randall St., on Monday, Dec. 3 at 1 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations are welcome to the Scott Mission or a charity of choice.

Whitney Pier singer, politician Eddie Parris dies - TheChronicleHerald.caThursday, April 12, 2018
Eddie was a very kind and generous person,” Godin said Monday. “The talent he was given in life was incredible. He was a God-loving person, I’ll tell you that. He loved to sing the hymns.”Manning MacDonald, who served as Sydney’s mayor from 1978 to 1993, said it was with Parris’ support that council was able to foster the creation of Centre 200 and the Sydney Waterfront District.“Not only was he a good alderman but he was an extremely good family man,” said MacDonald. “He was a good constituency man as far as helping his people, and more importantly, I felt that Eddie saw the big picture.”Active in politics in the 1970s and 1980s, Parris served one term as deputy mayor and was a common fixture on provincial boards and organizations that provided a voice for African Nova Scotians.“He was community minded,” said George Dunn, president of the Whitney Pier Historical Society. “He enjoyed the company of people. He was always looking to lift up their spirits and he was just fun to be around.”Parris is survived by his wife, Laura, his seven children, and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.A visitation will be held at the Pier Community Funeral Home, Wednesday, from 2-4 p.m. and 6-9 p.m.Parris’ funeral will be held Thursday beginning at 11 a.m. in the United Heritage Church with Rev. Godin officiating. A reception will follow at Melnick Hall.Let's block ads! (Why?)...
EDITORIAL: Paul MacEwan stood long and proud for Cape Breton - TheChronicleHerald.caFriday, June 02, 2017
Cape Breton politician Paul Whitfield MacEwan.
The longtime Cape Breton Nova MLA, who died last week at age 74, held office for more than three decades and never shied from the spotlight.
Manning MacDonald, former mayor of Sydney and Liberal MLA, grew up a block away from Mr. MacEwan and described him as a “people person,” something that no one who met the iconic Cape Breton politico would take issue with.
“He had a lot of time for those who needed his help and he spent a lot of time helping people,” said Mr. MacDonald.
Mr. MacEwan was the longest-serving MLA in Nova Scotia. He was a member of the House for 33 years and 225 days, retiring from politics in 2003.
He was literally a man of the people who saw his job as for the people. And it was he who defined politics in his riding, not the political party in government nor any other party, for that matter.
He was elected in 1970 as an NDP member and later as leader of the Cape Breton Labour Party, which he founded.
He later sat as an independent. In 1990 he joined the Liberal caucus and was voted Speaker of The House. Over the years he also served as a committee chair, House leader and deputy leader and caucus whip.
Mr. MacEwan was no shrinking violet.

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 ...
