35 years ago Delia Adriano was dropped off in front of her Oakville home but she never made it inside - Toronto StarThursday, December 14, 2017
Delia’s killer “may be among us.”The Catholic priest delivered his shocker to the congregation at St. James Roman Catholic Church in Oakville on Nov. 11, 1982, as 1,500 people gathered at the Morden Rd. church to mourn the death of Delia Adriano.Rev. Luis Lima’s eulogy at Delia’s funeral stunned those grieving the life of the 25-year-old, who, just a week shy of her 26th birthday, disappeared on Sunday night Sept. 26, 1982. Her naked body was discovered six weeks later on Nov. 6 by Del Parcham, a woodcutter, in a wooded lot northeast of Oakville and south of Milton, about 32 kilometres from her home.“Who is the criminal who did this to Delia? Who is he? Where is he?” the reverend asked the overflow crowd in Portuguese, reported the Star on Nov. 12, 1982. “Just as her body was found not too far from here, then the criminal may not be too far from here either. He may be among us now.” Lima’s questions caused Delia’s mother, Maria do Carmo, to shriek and many mourners to weep while looking nervously at their neighbours.

BC drops plans to turn Maple Ridge motel into homeless shelter - The Globe and MailThursday, November 17, 2016
People working in this area [of homelessness research] are probably best to speak on whether that works or not,” she said.Mike Morden, a two-term councillor who lost to Ms. Read in the last mayoral election, said he helped lead the opposition to the project because people kept telling him they were upset about open drug use and an increase in petty crime near the current emergency shelter. The local chamber of commerce also opposed the plan after a survey of members.“You don’t put sick people in the position where they stay sick,” Mr. Morden said of the housing-first model being employed by the city.Mr. Morden said he and others will continue pushing the provincial government to include addiction and proper mental-health services with any supportive housing that will get built in the community.Ralph Altenried, a local financial services adviser, echoed Mr. Morden’s call for more long-term support.“Every community in B.C., or even in Canada, is going through homeless problems right now,” said Mr. Altenried, who added that his wife used to work at the shuttered Riverview Hospital for those with mental-health issues.NDP MLA David Eby, opposition critic for housing, said the public is increasingly aware that not funding stable services for the province’s most vulnerable inevitably leads to tent cities, which costs much more of taxpayers’ money. Plus, he said people are concerned about the quality of life for people living outside in communities across the province.Meanwhile, a new report released Tuesday by Vancouver’s Megaphone magazine, found that at 46 homeless people died across British Columbia in 2014. That represents a 70-per-cent increase from the previous year.

Cross Lake man's life 'was cut short,' family says in suing Manitoba and federal governments - CBC.caFriday, August 12, 2016
We need the same level of care that we get in rural communities like Thompson, or in Winnipeg, or even Morden-Winkler. They have … better health care than we do up north," he said.
Kelvin McKay said his brother was a humble man who worked various jobs, including one as a cameraman for the community TV station, and helped host traditional sweat lodge ceremonies.
Tyson McKay also mentored at-risk youth and was very close to his family, including his mother and his six nieces and nephews, his brother said.
In December, the Cross Lake Band and McKay's family called for a government inquiry into premature and preventable deaths of Indigenous people in Manitoba, arguing that a nursing station alone is not enough to provide adequate care for Cross Lake, a community of 8,400 people.

Humboldt Broncos bus crash: Funeral service held for radio broadcaster, 'amazing man' Tyler Bieber - Saskatoon StarPhoenixThursday, April 12, 2018
Nipawin, was confirmed to be one of the victims of the of the crash. (Supplied)SASwpLyndon Friesen, president of Bolt FM’s parent company, Golden West Radio, travelled from Manitoba to attend Thursday’s service with other employees. Friesen called Bieber’s death “tragic” and said it had a huge impact on those who work there.“He was a critical piece to the station,” Friesen said in an interview.Maureen Johnson, who knows Bieber’s mother and has a child Bieber’s age, wore a jersey to the service. She said she attended the funeral to show support not only for Bieber’s family, but “to show strong support for the kids in the hospital.”The collision between the Broncos bus and a semi-trailer took place last Friday around 5 p.m. on Highway 35 about 30 kilometres north of Tisdale as the Broncos travelled to Nipawin from Humboldt in a Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) semifinal series against the Nipawin Hawks. Of the 29 people on board, 16 died in the collision and 13 were injured. The driver of the semi-trailer was not injured.Bieber was vice-president of the Humboldt touch football league, involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters as a mentor and was set to start coaching at a football academy in Saskatoon three days a week. Bieber was also a fan of the NFL’s New England Patriots. When Patriots owner Robert Kraft learned that, he sent flowers on behalf of the team to Thursday’s service and also left a voicemail for Bieber’s mother expressing condolences, according to ESPN.“My son was one amazing man,” Bieber’s mother, Marilyn Hay, said last week. “He would get up at 5:30 every morning and go to work, but his day didn’t stop there. After, he would volunteer with the high school kids — teaching them basketball, football, he taught the girls flag football — he had a real passion for that.“Tyler was rarely at home between running from work to volunteer jobs,” she said. “He wasn’t in it for the money, he’d get paid extra for being an announcer, but he’d drop that to go be a volunteer coach instead.”In a post on Facebook, his brother Brandon said, “I don’t know what to do or say right now but I know one thing is you will always be true in my heart, RIP my sweet brother, I miss you and love you dearly.”In addition to several services across Western Canada scheduled for the coming days, three other funerals are set to take place in Humboldt.A celebration of life has been announced for Jacob Leicht, 19, on Friday at 10 a.m. at the Elgar Petersen Arena.

Mississauga woman whose life was saved by expensive drug pushes BC to cover its costs like Ontario does - Globalnews.caThursday, December 14, 2017
Dix did say he feels for the family and other patients suffering from the disease, but that his staff would consult with the Ontario government — along with those of Manitoba and Quebec, the other two provinces that cover Soliris — and make an informed decision based on what they find.Wanting to do moreBack in Mississauga, Saiphoo says the B.C. government’s unwillingness to cover the drug goes against evidence of the drug’s efficacy, and rejects the idea that there’s a lack of concrete results.“I’m speechless, I don’t know what to say about that,” she said.“The results are me sitting here now being able to talk to you. Being in the comfort of my own home.“I mean, I’m proof [that it works].”Saiphoo says now that she has access to the drug, all she wants to do is share it with people like Anaquod.“I have an infusion coming up on Saturday,” she said. “If I could just give her that infusion I would gladly do it, because I know it would help.”Let's block ads!
