Newfoundland father of man slain in Edmonton pleads for help to get body home - Edmonton Sun

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

Coates was born in Ontario, raised in Brown’s Arm and moved west as a young man, initially working in construction in Slave Lake. 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 everything to him, and when she died, a part of him died. He’s going to be buried in Brown’s Arm right next to his mother.” Officers on Friday found Brent Coates fatally wounded in the alley after another man flagged down a passing police vehicle. An ambulance was summoned but Coates died of a stab wound at the scene. Police are calling for public tips to help solve the case.The slaying was Edmonton’s 25th homicide of 2017, though the police force is not including two other deaths in its official count. The death was the city’s sixth homicide this month. The elder Coates said his son trained as a welder and worked a variety of jobs, recently for temporary work agencies, and would drift out of contact when times were tough. He is trying to focus on memories of his son as a Toronto Maple Leafs fan who grew up playing hockey, and a hard worker who bought a dozen Boston cream doughnuts with his first paycheque.The father and son last spoke on the phone around a year ago, and he fears his son may have been mixed up in drugs and alcohol. “I want people to know that my son existed. And I want people to know someone took his life,” he said. jwakefield@postmedia.com Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Const. David Wynn honoured by thousands at funeral - CBC.ca

Friday, August 12, 2016

Brandt also performed an acoustic version of Amazing Grace. RCMP 'family from coast to coast' Const. Darrel Laboucan was among those marching through the streets. The 25-year-old RCMP officer from Slave Lake, Alta., didn’t know Wynn personally, but wanted to be a part of the procession to honour the Mountie. 'I can tell you a fact that if I was in Const. Wynn's situation now, he would be there for me. Just as any RCMP member would be there for each other,' Const. Darrel Laboucan told CBC News. (CBC) "You have that uniform on, you wear that red serge, you’re just part of a big family from coast to coast," he said. "I can tell you a fact that if I was in Const, Wynn’s situation now, he would be there for me. Just as any RCMP member would be there for each other." Laboucan said RCMP officers are often the bearer of bad news and become targets of negative reaction. He said Wynn’s shooting provides a harsh reminder of the dangers of the job. "These days, there are no more routine calls. There’s a lot of unpredictability," Laboucan said. Wynn, who had three sons, volunteered at schools in St. Albert. He was popular among s...

Conservation group says Alberta grizzly, Bear 148, shot dead in BC - CTV News

Thursday, April 12, 2018

PM EDT 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 News

Thursday, 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...
