Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa Citizen

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Michener Awards Foundation and fostering great journalism in Canada."The fact that he was managing editor of the Globe and Mail and publisher in Ottawa, Montreal and Vancouver shows his versatility and his great track record. When he was at a news organization, things got better."Russ Mills, whose two tours of duty as publisher of the Ottawa Citizen sandwiched Davey's, described Davey as "a legendary figure" in journalism, whose breadth of experience made his counsel regularly sought by other publishers and editors.Davey followed the news closely, right up to the end. According to Mills, Davey attended weekly round-table lunches at the Rideau Club, and at last week's, for example, was active and up-to-date discussing the SNC-Lavalin file.Davey was born in 1928 in Chatham, Ont. His career might have taken a completely different arc had his poor vision not kept him from attending Royal Roads Military College in B.C. He was heartbroken after failing his medical, but an English teacher told him that people would pay him to write. So he enrolled in the first journalism degree course taught at University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1948 and joining the newsroom of the Chatham Daily News.There, he worked under Richard "Dic" Doyle, but moved to Kirkland Lake when the Thomson newspaper chain made him editor-in-chief of the Northern Daily News. His time there was brief, however, as his girlfriend, Joyce Gordon, issued him an ultimatum: Northern Ontario or me. He chose her: they married in September 1952.In the meantime, he joined the newsroom of the Globe and Mail, where his mentor Doyle had been working for a year.As a reporter with the Globe, Davey covered national and international affairs, including the Suez Canal crisis, the St. Lawrence Seaway project and the cancellation of the Avro Arrow program. During the 1957 federal election campaign, he recognized that Tory leader John Diefenbaker was gaining momentum and might actually win, and convinced his editors to allow him to stay with the Chief's campaign for 40 days.

Next story Retired Abbotsford Police sergeant dies in head-on crash - Aldergrove Star

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Ford pickup at about 1:50 p.m. on Cedar Road near Cedar Bridge. Nanaimo RCMP said two passengers from the Chevy were airlifted to hospital, with one taken to Vancouver and the other to Victoria. Their injuries were serious but not life-threatening, according to police. The 22-year-old male driver of the Ford and his adult female passenger suffered minor injuries that did not require hospitalization. RCMP said no causes for the crash have yet been determined, but the investigation will continue, including mechanical inspections of the vehicles involved. Investigators said they do not believe that alcohol or speed were contributing factors, but weather and road conditions have not been ruled out. Kirk began his policing career with the Vancouver Police Department in 1981, moving 10 years later to the Abbotsford Police Department.

Nanaimo remembers educator, activist and elder 'Auntie Ellen' - Nanaimo News Bulletin

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

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 share knowledge, and she would say that she had a coat with many pockets in which she collected pearls of wisdom that would be there when she needed them. White was born in 1922. According to her obituary, as a child she lived on Rice Island (now Norway Island) and Kuper Island (now Penelakut Island), avoiding residential school because her family had roots on the U.S. side of the border and so she didn't have Canadian Indian Status. She was immersed in Coast Salish traditional teachings and learned ceremony, healing and midwifery. She and her husband, Chief Doug White, raised five children in...

Fighting the fire within: Ex-firefighter's death raises questions about support - Richmond News

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

You definitely get a sense from the room that it's not an easy topic, even though we're just role playing. They're not easy conversations -- but they're necessary," Dickson said. Vancouver Fire-Rescue also implemented the program, and 70 per cent of members who went through it said they use the techniques regularly at work and at home. Dickson remembers the very first Resilient Minds class he ran was on the Monday after Bryan Kongus' funeral, a Richmond firefighter who died as a result of work-related PTSD. Needless to say, there was buy-in from members to participate. Although, today, it is strongly impressed on new recruits that Richmond Fire-Rescue takes mental health seriously, that wasn't always the case. Wilkinson, Dickson and Cory Parker, president of Richmond's firefighter union, are all more than 25 years into their firefighting career. They all said when they started, things were much different. "The follow-up 20 years ago was the captain saying ‘you ok?'," Parker said. "Well, a number of years back you would have a couple of drinks. So basically, you dull the feelings," Wilkinson added. Judd said her...
