Death Café returns to Okanagan - Summerland Review

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Participants in cafes held in past years have asked organizers to offer them monthly, in a quieter place than our local busy community coffee shops. This year the Okanagan Regional Libraries in Kelowna, Vernon and Summerland are making their spaces available on Saturday or Sunday afternoons to host Death Café. The next cafe takes place at the Vernon library on Sunday, Feb. 24 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. As of the start of 2019, 7,520 Death Cafes have been offered in 63 countries since September 2011. At a Death Cafe, people, often strangers, gather to drink tea or coffee and discuss death. Death Cafes are an opportunity to have an honest and respectful conversation about death. They are a group-directed, confidential discussion of death with no expectations, no agendas and no judgments. A Death Cafe is not a grief support or counseling session. See: The Okanagan Death Café returns for another season The Death Cafe model was developed by Jon Underwood and Sue Barsky Reid, based on the ideas of Bernard Crettaz. The aim of the movement is "to increase awareness of death with a view of helping people make the most of their (finite) lives." Underwood maintained that the world would be a better place if people dealt with their fear of dying: "Life and death are interdependent. The best preparation for death is...

Details emerging about Gerald Cotten, the young founder of QuadrigaCX - Burnaby Now

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Robertson die within 30 days of his death. The list includes: a large home in Kelowna, B.C.; a property on Nova Scotia's western shore; an undeveloped property in Fall River, N.S.; a 2017 Lexus; an "airplane;" a 2015 Mini Cooper and a 50-foot Jeanneau 51 sailboat. There was also a plan in place to provide $100,000 to Cotten's in-laws to help them cover the costs of caring for the couple's pet Chihuahuas, Nitro and Gully. Court documents attached to the will include a statement of death from the J.A. Snow Funeral Home in Halifax, dated Dec. 12, which says Cotten died in Jaipur on Dec. 9. The cause of death is not listed. In her affidavit, Robertson says she has been subjected to online threats, slanderous comments and speculation about Cotten's death, "including whether he is really dead." Robertson said Cotten was diagnosed with Crohn's disease at the age of 24, about a year after he co-founded QuadrigaCX with his partner Mike Patryn. She said Cotten died from complications linked to the disease, which disrupts digestion by causing inflammation of the bowels. Fortis Escorts hospital in Jaipur issued a statement Thursday confirming that Cotten was admitted on Dec. 8, 2018, at 9:45 p.m. and died from a cardiac arrest at 7:26 p.m. the next night, according to CoinDesk, an online publication that tracks the cryptocurrency industry. Cotten was in septic shock when he was admitted and suffered two cardiac arrests before he died, CoinDesk reported. Meanwhile, industry critics have come forward to say the QuadrigaCX debacle has proven to be a major embarrassment for Canada's cryptocurrency industry, which includes more than a dozen exchanges across the country. Some industry insiders have said provincial and federal officials should move quickly to do something about a business that is largely unregulated and has no independent oversight. The Canadian Securities Administrators, an umbrella organization representing provincial securities regulators, issued a statement Thursday urging Canadians to be cautious when buying crypto-assets through trading platforms. "As highlighted in recent CSA investor alerts and awareness campaigns over the past year, this means that key investor protections may not be in place," the agency said. QuadrigaCX and its affiliated companies are registered in British Columbia, but it has no offices, no bank accounts and no employees, aside from a handful of contractors. The B.C. Securities Commission issued a statement Thursday saying it has been aware of QuadrigaCX's operations since 2017. The agency said QuadrigaCX was not subject to regulation because it did not operate as a marketplace or exchange under B.C. securities laws. "The BCSC ... (has) been urging investors to exercise caution with regard to crypto-assets," the agency said Thursday. On Tuesday, the Nova Scotia Supreme Court granted QuadrigaCX protection from its creditors and a 30-day stay of proceedings to given the insolvent company time to find the missing currency and draft a plan to restructure or sell the ...

Leo Neziol was devoted to his family, faith and business - Brantford Expositor

Saturday, March 2, 2019

He was devoted to all three." Born and raised in Brantford, Mr. Neziol was the son of Polish immigrants. He volunteered for service when the Second World War broke out and went for training in Kelowna, B.C. Mr. Neziol was stationed in New Orleans and was awaiting deployment to the Pacific theatre when the war ended. He returned to Brantford and he and Stella, his wife of more than 69 years, established Neziol Insurance Brokers Ltd. in 1958. "They started in their home with dad doing the selling and mom handling the books," said Mr. Neziol's son, Bernard. "Dad was a salesman and a very good one while mom handled the details. "They worked hard and built the business into a success." The business expanded to include offices in Oakville, Ancaster and Mississauga. Mr. Neziol was an active member of St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church on Brant Avenue, an honorary member of the Knights of Columbus and a member of the Polish Mutual Benefit and Friendly Society. "People will always remember him as a gentleman who loved to sing and dance," Bernard said. "He worked hard and had a zest for life that was tied to his Polish roots. "At weddings and family gatherings, he was always on the dance floor." Mr. Neziol was the father of Nancy (Phil McColeman), Gerry (Victoria), Paul (Tracey), Bernard (Kim) and Peter (Elsa). He is also survived by many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Wednesday's funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. at St. Joseph's, with interment to follow at St. Joseph's Catholic Cemetery.
