Originally from Gravenhurst, Russell was called to the bar in 1953, and established his Orillia firm (now known as Russell Christie LLP) in 1960 after seven years of practice in Toronto. During those early years, Russell served as lawyer and secretary to A.V. Roe and Company (Avro Canada), the company behind the Avro Arrow project, which at the time had been seen as a great example of Canadian ingenuity and technical marvel in the aviation field.

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

DUNCAN, S.C. - Authorities say a 76-year-old Virginia woman was attacked and wounded by a pack of dogs while attending a funeral in South Carolina, and the dogs’ owner has since been charged. News outlets report the woman was attacked Monday afternoon by five dogs that Spartanburg Environmental Enforcement officials say escaped from owner Daisy Ann Anderson, of Duncan. Arrest warrants accuse Anderson of allowing her dogs to escape despite knowing they had violent tendencies. The dogs were seized Tuesday and put under rabies quarantine at a humane society. SEE Director Jamie Nelson says 12 other dogs were found at the home of Anderson, who was arrested on an unrelated shoplifting charge. Nelson says Anderson faces charges related to owning an animal that attacks a human. It’s unclear if she has a lawyer. The Associated Press Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Auntie Ellen.' 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...
