Dave Newell remembered as respected referee, family man first - The Sudbury StarSaturday, March 02, 2019
Newell was well-known to his family, including brother Dale McCourt, a budding star with the Detroit Red Wings, as well as uncle George Armstrong, who had recently wrapped up a hall-of-fame career with the Toronto Maple Leafs."It was Dave Newell who you watched, who you knew, because I was from Falconbridge and he was from Copper Cliff," Dan McCourt said. "I had met him a couple of times and he was just a terrific man."When I got hired by the NHL in 1979, it was David who you turned to from time to time, to ask for help or guidance, which you could do to get better, because I think by the time I got hired, he had already worked three Stanley Cup finals."McCourt said Newell enjoyed telling the story of his first Stanley Cup game and how, a bundle of nerves, he was already wearing his full gear and pacing when the supervisor of officials, the late Frank Udvari, came to see him at 1 p.m., hours before puck drop.

"I got to be on the ice with David, I got to work with him, I got to see how much respect he had from players and coaches for the type of job that he did, for the way he refereed a hockey game, for the way he understood the way the game was to be refereed," McCourt said.That respect was apparent in a stream of social media posts that marked Newell's passing this week."Dave Newell was a dear friend, a mentor and an outstanding referee," tweeted former referee Paul Stewart. "RIP ‘Newelly.' He will be greatly missed. Dave reffed my first NHL game for Quebec, took me under his wing at my 1st officiating camp and my NHL reffing debut came when I stepped in for him due to injury.""Very sad to hear of the passing of former NHL referee and fellow Sudbury native Dave Newell (He would take umbrage to that last reference, since he was proudly from Copper Cliff.)," Hockey News columnist Ken Campbell added. "Great referee. Even greater human being.""We are deeply saddened 2learn of the passing today of dear friend & former colleague, NHL Referee Dave Newell," tweeted Kerry Fraser, another longtime former referee. "Dave was a courageous, selfless leader as longtime President of the NHLOA. ‘Newts' stood tall 4what was right & fought for the little guy regardless of personal cost."Newell led the officials' association through a time of change, during which members fought for higher pay, the league expanded and a new crop of officials entered the ranks."Dave led us through all of that," McCourt said. "He was at the forefront of it all."Newell famously refused, along with Ray Scapinello and Gord Broseker, to officiate a playoff game involving the New Jersey Devils and Boston Bruins when Jim Schoenfeld was allowed to coach. Devils bench boss Schoenfeld had been suspende...

Nanaimo remembers educator, activist and elder 'Auntie Ellen' - Nanaimo News BulletinWednesday, March 27, 2019
Ellen White, Kwulasulwut, died Tuesday at age 95, and her funeral was held Saturday morning at the Beban Park Social Centre.
White was a member of the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia and her obituary remembers her as an "educator, cultural knowledge keeper, author, linguist, herbalist, healer, traditional midwife, and political activist and advocate."
She was one of the founders of the Tillicum Haus Aboriginal Friendship Centre and was an elder-in-residence in Vancouver Island University's First Nations studies program.
"She possessed a pure, kind and radiant heart," said Les Malbon, who described himself as one of White's adopted grandchildren as he delivered her eulogy Saturday.
White's name, Kwulasulwut, translates to ‘many stars' and Malbon alluded to that as he addressed the people gathered in the social centre.
"I look out now and I see the many stars," he said. "I see how she impacted the community. I see how much she loved her family and I appreciated, personally, how much that love changed me and how it's changed all of us to be better people and behoove us to be kind to one another and to work towards a world of unity."
Malbon said the White home was always filled with visitors, and Ellen White also travelled to meet people and sh...
