Thursday, April 12, 2018

Hundreds of firefighters and other first responders from across the country will gather in Richmond on Monday to honour a firefighter who died of work-related post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).Capt. Donald “Bryan” Kongus, 44, died in August. IAFF Local 1286, the Richmond firefighters’ union, and his family asked to delay his memorial until WorkSafeBC could determine what caused his death.WATCH: PTSD among first respondersThe agency determined Kongus died as a direct result of his job, meaning he would receive a full-honours funeral given to firefighters who die in the line of duty.IAFF Local 1286 president Cory Parker said it’s important to recognize that Kongus “served the citizens of Richmond for 22-plus years and eventually the job was what killed him,” Parker said.

Cape Breton politician known for his ties to Strait area - Cape Breton Post

Thursday, December 14, 2017

Halifax. Born in Grand Étang in 1937, he graduated from St. Francis Xavier University and went on to earn a law degree from Dalhousie University in 1961. He was first elected as the member for Richmond to the Nova Scotia Legislature when he was 26 years old and he became a cabinet minister nine months later. He was the first Acadian cabinet minister in the province’s history. He served as the minister of education, minister of youth, provincial secretary and minister of emergency measures.He owned CIGO in Port Hawkesbury between 1975 and 1985 and that’s where present station president Bob MacEachern first met him.“I was an employee of his company for about six years,” said MacEachern on Friday. “I didn’t work closely with him — I got to know him after that.”MacEachern said Doucet may have left Cape Breton to work as a lawyer in Halifax and as a consultant in Ottawa but the Strait area was never far from his mind.“He was always very much connected to the Strait region and what was going on.”Doucet is survived by his wife, Vida, five children, 13 grandchildren and four brothers. Snow’s Funeral Home in Halifax will announce the funeral information once it is known.news@cbpost.comLet's block ads! (Why?)...

Allan J. MacEachen, Canadian politician behind landmark social programs, dead at 96 - CBC.ca

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Longtime N.S. politician Allan J. MacEachen dies at 962:23MacEachen was first elected in 1953 in Nova Scotia's Inverness–Richmond riding and won again in 1957. He lost the seat in 1958 but went on to win eight more elections, including the last five while representing Cape Breton Highlands–Canso. For five decades, he witnessed and helped shape Canadian policy as one of the most powerful cabinet ministers of the postwar era. His portfolios included minister of finance, health, labour and twice he served as secretary of state for external affairs.His former colleagues and friends said his speaking and strategic-negotiating skills were only matched by his ability to listen — whether it be to his fellow caucus members, political opponents or constituents. "You could see it in the House or anywhere else: He paid rapt attention to every word that was spoken," said Lowell Murray, a former Progressive Conservative senator.Rae said MacEachen was a close political adviser to Lester B. Pearson and Pierre Trudeau, maintaining a lifelong commitment to his values. "The beliefs that he had as a young man, he retained his whole life. And he was able to do and to put into place a lot of things that he believed in, which not all of us get a chance to do. But he did it," Rae said.  Trudeau, MacEachen, and Quebec Premier Rene Levesque attend the constitutional conference in Ottawa on Nov. 5, 1981. (The Canadian Press)Prime Minister Justin Trudeau described MacEachen as "one of the finest ministers ever to serve this country." ?MacEachen sponsored the bill that became the Canada Health Act, and oversaw the creation of medicare as minister of national health and welfare from 1965 to 1968."In 1966, when Prime Minister Pearson needed someone to actually make it happen, to design the legislation and to make it happen and it to get it through a minority Parliament, he turned to Allan J.," said Trudeau."For that and for so many other things, Canada is a better country because he was in it and he served it. May he rest in peace."He was known as someone who could get bills through when others couldn't. As labour minister, he was instrumental in reforming the labour code and establishing a new standard for the minimum wage.MacEachen represented Canada at the height of the Cold War and helped orchestrate the fall of the Joe Clark government in 1979. Afterward, he was credited with rallying the Liberal caucus to take Trudeau back as leader. Allan J. MacEachen, a long-serving Liberal MP and senator from Cape Breton, has died at St. Martha's Hospital in Antigonish, N.S., on Monday night. (Mike Dembeck/Canadian Press)Backbencher was a term MacEachen hated because it minimized the importance of persuading members of his own party, Murray said."He got it done, and he got it done by quiet diplomacy, and...

Community mourns doctor who put focus on health care in the north - CBC.ca

Thursday, April 12, 2018

A doctor who spent decades working to improve health care in northern British Columbia is being mourned after he died Tuesday night.Dr. Bert Kelly was a "tireless champion for health care" said Prince George city councillor Susan Scott, who announced his passing via Facebook.Kelly was a key architect of the Northern Medical Program, in which students in UBC's medical program are trained in northern B.C. in an effort to help recruit and retain future medical professionals in a region that historically has been underserved.Faced with chronic doctor shortages in Prince George and the surrounding area, Kelly helped lead a local group of physicians and specialists in what was effectively a strike in 2000, withdrawing non-essential services until the province agreed to commit more funding and efforts to recruitment and retention of doctors in the north. By 2004 the Northern Medical Program was opened, with Kelly serving the role of Executive Director of the Northern Medical Society.Truly sad this morning at the loss of Dr. Bert Kelly! He wa...

A reflective Father Bob Haggarty looks back on his time in Lillooet - Bridge River Lillooet News

Thursday, April 12, 2018

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...
