7 white caskets as Halifax says goodbye to children lost in house fire - CBC News

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Arthur J. Leblanc, said what happened to the Barho family was "an almost unimaginable tragedy."'Dream has been shattered'"Like any family that comes from a war-ravaged country, they had hopes and dreams for a new life in Canada. And that dream has been shattered," Leblanc said.Nova Scotia's deputy premier, Karen Casey, said the province will continue to support the family."We will not abandon you, we will not leave you, we will travel this journey with you. Please accept our love, please feel our warm embrace," Casey said.Natalie Horne and Leno Ribahi of the Heart Society, the group that sponsored the Barho family, reflect on their legacy and how the community is rallying in response to the tragedy. 1:00Andy Fillmore, MP for Halifax, said the federal government is continuing its work to bring relatives of the family to Canada "as quickly as possible so they can be by your side."Halifax's deputy mayor, Tony Mancini, said he was "inspired by the way our neighbours have come together" to help the Barho family."I'd encourage each of you to use the sadness we share as a community to fuel acts of love and kindness toward our family, friends and neighbours," Mancini said.Sheikh Hamza Mangera, imam at Ummah Mosque, told the mourners that the children's lives teach us how each day is precious. "Life is so short, there isn't enough time to love. I don't know where people find time to hate," he said in English. The funeral ended with a prayer and all seven caskets being wheeled out of the Cunard Centre.'I've never seen something like this'Rukiya Ali was one of hundreds of people who attended the funeral. She said she lost two of her own children suddenly - one was 12 and the other was 30."Everyone is sad, everyone is mourning these people. I've never, since I was born, seen something like this.

'A launching pad to start over': Three women find new lives with support of Kingston Interval House - The Kingston Whig-Standard

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Wiwchar said.Kingston Interval House provides emergency shelter for women alongside myriad other services such as counselling. They also provide Robin's Hope, a second-stage housing apartment building for women awaiting affordable housing.Wiwchar had been living in Australia for 17 years as a dual citizen. She worked, she fell in love, she had her son, then disaster struck on either side of the world.In Ottawa, Wiwchar's mother was dying, but in Australia, the love of her life, a healthy New South Wales police officer, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of kidney cancer. After considering her agonizing choices, in 2013 she returned to Canada. Ten days after she landed, her partner died.It was the darkest time in Wiwchar's life. Unable to afford to return home to Australia for the funeral, a close friend in Kingston took her and her 11-year-old son in. It was successful for a few months, but then things turned south and she and her son were forced to move out."We moved into this hotel and I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, I'm homeless, with a child, and I don't know anybody,'" Wiwchar recalled.Leaning on her church for support and still grieving the loss of her son's father, Wiwchar called women's shelters in the area, but she said many told her that her situation wasn't suited for them.Interval House decided to accept the small family for her child's safety. On Aug. 28, 2013, Wiwchar and her son moved into the shelter for six weeks before an apartment at Robin's Hope opened up."I'm super grateful for Robin's Hope, because my son in the shelter was being exposed to things that he'd never been exposed to," Wiwchar said. "In the apartment he found a safer space. It literally gave us a launching pad to start over, where he was able to feel stable, to feel he had a home to come to, and to start making friends."After a brief stay at Robin's Hope, ...

A 'warm embrace' for grieving parents at funeral of seven young fire victims - OrilliaMatters.Com

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Hamza said as he offered the ceremony's English sermon. More than 2,000 people attended the two-hour service, with every seat filled and hundreds more people standing. Imam Abdallah Yousri said he hoped opening the ceremony to the public would allow Barho to see the entire community had been united in sympathy. "On what is our darkest day, we see the best of humanity when we look out into the sea of faces in front of us," said Natalie Horne, vice-president of the community group that sponsored the Barhos' refugee claim. "Our lives were enriched as a result of our relationship with you and your children," Horne told Barho through tears. "We love them and we love you." Many of those gathered openly wept when the children's names were read: Teenager Ahmad; Rola, 12; Mohamad, 9; Ola, 8; Hala, 3; Rana, 2; and Abdullah, who was born in Canada on Nov. 9. "Together our community will find ways to honour your memories," the city's deputy mayor, Tony Mancini, said after reading the names. "I encourage each of you to use the sadness we share as a community to fuel acts of love and kindness towards our family, friends and neighbours." It was a common theme throughout the funeral - a desire for the tragedy to lead to love and unity. "Life is short and temporary. Live it the best way possible," Hamza said. Nova Scotia deputy premier Karen Casey told Barho "we will not abandon you. We will not leave you alone." "Please accept our love," Casey said. "Please accept our warm embrace." Halifax MP Andy Fillmore told Barho the community would be there for her in the hard times to come. But he acknowledged it's family that brings the greatest comfort, and said the federal government is trying to bring her overseas relatives to Canada quickly. "We are working as hard as we can to get your family here as quickly as possible so they can be by your side," Fillmore said. Mourners, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, said they came because they had been deeply affected by the tragedy, and wanted to show their support for Barho as she faced unimaginable grief. "She doesn't know me, I don't know her, but I know I'm here. And she'...
