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.

Two Carnival Legends Lost - VenuesNowWednesday, March 27, 2019
They didn't want me in the business," she said. But she met Bingo, and the rest is history.
In his youth, Bingo was in a hurry to get out of Brandon, Manitoba, where he said there were only three occupations – policeman, and he was too short to be one; crook, and he was too nice to try that; and carnie. He hitched a job on Royal American Shows working the sideshows and then Myerhoff Shows.
And then he met Simba, the lion. "The lion was jealous of me," Jackie said.
Simba the Lion loving on a young Bingo Hauser.
From Simba, Bingo moved on to an alligator, a boa constrictor and a monkey. They all grew up in the Hauser household, some in the kitchen, some in the living room. Once the monkey escaped and hid in a farmer's truck to make his getaway. Hours later, Bingo had to bail the monkey out of jail.
They travelled with the menagerie for years, but then the animals grew too big.
The time came to switch from fur to iron. Bingo knew he had to "get rid of anything you have to feed all winter." Jackie didn't want Bingo to get into the carnival business, but he did.
Like Tony, Bingo was gregarious and bigger than life. Jackie remembered that when he asked her to marry him, she thought, "You and me and how many others?" But he managed to propose and they bought a Merry-Go-Round and West Coast Amusements was born.
There was a carousel horse from that Merry-Go-Round at Bingo's funeral Oct. 16 in Langley, B.C., spruced up and set up by his son Bob.
West Coast Amusements now includes more than 100 rides and operates three units. The season begins in April and ends in September. The family has the route covered and is working on details of the 2016 season now.
On RCS, Bil Lowry has taken over Tony's responsibilities.
Life goes on, but the loss of two giants in the industry is felt by many hundreds of people, evidenced in the tributes paid.

Cam, who was the love of her life. She was also predeceased by her parents, Norman and Loveday, her brother Mackay, and her sister Carol.
Gaydha was born and raised in Manitou, Manitoba. After graduating high school, she went to business college and began a career working in various administrative positions including with the Manitoba Telephone System and the Manitoba Department of Agriculture.
Soon after, she met Cam, her true love, and they married on August 6, 1960. After settling in Winnipeg, they welcomed their three daughters and began the family life they so enjoyed. Cam’s career took the family from Manitoba to Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia. During that time, Gaydha was a dedicated wife and mother, roles she was very proud of. Following retirement in 1990, she and Cam returned to Red Deer, Alberta, where they would enjoy spending time with their family and especially their cherished grandchildren. Those who knew Gaydha were touched by her strength, spirit, enthusiasm, and passion. She would take the occasions in life to celebrate others with generosity and joy, providing an example that will endure in the hearts of her family.

The official cause of death has not been released."He was a real salt-of-the-earth guy," said Griffins forward and another Sherwood Park product Nolan Yaremchuk, 25. "He really thought about other people before he thought about himself. I think that Nakehko was so special in so many different ways. For one, he was so funny, he had a charismatic personality, and he was always wanting to come to the rink to get better. His drive for hockey was something I'd never seen before. He loved playing hockey."

Part Dene and part Cree, Lamothe was a role model for Indigenous youth. He grew up on the Bigstone Cree Nation at Calling Lake and helped run youth hockey programs. Last February, Lamothe invited youth from his community to spend a day with him at MacEwan."He was an incredible teammate and he was very well liked in the dressing room," Griffins head coach Mike Ringrose, a former player for the Sherwood Park Crusaders, said. "He was infectious in terms of his attitude and his work ethic. He was easily the fittest player on our team. Anytime we did any type of fitness competition, he was the one that always came out on top and took care of his body and his diet. He was a leader for us in that regard. On the ice, he was extremely competitive, worked exceptionally hard and was hard to play against. The type of guy you were certainly happy to have on your team and you didn't want to see on the other side."According to teammates the six-foot-three, 210-pound forward was dedicated to fitness."We had a team party one time and us being university guys, some guys brought beer to the party and Nakehko brings 12 eggs," Gotaas said.
