It was there he got the call that his mother had died of a heart attack. His father last saw him at the funeral. “That really affected him,” Coates said. “His mother was e...

Family raising money to send murder victim's body home to ... - Edmonton JournalThursday, November 17, 2016
Colombia to help their parents.
But when Duran’s brother Ibanez, 42, was killed early Sunday in a vicious, seemingly random attack in north Edmonton, the couple was at a loss what to tell family back home.
“Now my family is scared,” Malkum said.
Sitting in the dining room of their home, Malkum and Duran don’t know why six strangers swarmed Malkum and Ibanez as they walked home from a Latin bar.
Malkum said he didn’t get a good look at any of the attackers, who didn’t say anything when the two men pleaded with them to stop. It was dark and everything happened fast.
“I tried to give a hand to my brother-in-law, but I couldn’t because they were attacking me,” he said Wednesday.
After neighbours heard what was happening and called police, the attackers fled. While waiting for an ambulance, he said he was crying “please wake up, please wake up” over and over again. Police arrived and pulled him away.
Later, at the hospital, a doctor confirmed the worst.
Malkum said he has only spoken to the police to give his statement. For now, fighting for justice for his brother-in-law will wait.
The family is trying to raise the $22,000 needed to send Ibanez’s body to Colombia, where he lived with his girlfriend and 18-year-old son.

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 ...
