Thousands attend funeral service for officers killed in Fredericton shooting - The Globe and MailWednesday, March 27, 2019
His tie and pocket square were yellow - his wife's favourite colour - matching the yellow roses placed on top of her casket next to her police cap and belt. Greg Morris, a family friend of Costello, said the fallen officer took great pride in his work and described being a police officer as his lifelong passion. Morris said Costello was a kind and compassionate friend who loved his mother, once spending two days by her side while she was in the hospital. Costello also loved basketball, Morris said, adding that his friend wasn't very good at it. But the most important thing in his life was his family, said Morris. "Kassie and Kaitlyn, your dad would be so proud of the remarkable women you're becoming today," Morris said, addressing Costello's daughters.

Robb Costello during a regimental funeral in Fredericton on Saturday, August 18, 2018. Darren Calabrese/The Canadian Press Const. Debbie Stafford, the Master of Ceremonies for the funeral, told the packed stadium that the sacrifice made by Costello and Burns will never be forgotten. "May today be a celebration of their lives and a way to honour them for making the ultimate sacrifice," Stafford said. At the beginning of the ceremony, officers laid the caps and belts of the fallen constables on top of their caskets, covered by Canadian flags, next to roses placed there by family members. The flags were later carefully folded and given to Costello and Burns' family. The service began with a heart-wrenching bilingual rendition of "O Canada" by award-winning singer Measha Brueggergosman, a Fredericton native, followed by a smudging ceremony with sweetgrass, performed by St. Mary's First Nation Elder Imelda Perley, to honour the officers' transition from "Earth walk to spirit walk." Story continues below advertisement Before the funeral began, 1,500 officers and first responders marched through the streets of Fredericton for a funeral procession, while hundreds of people lined the route, somberly watching. Rain poured from the sky during the parade, mirroring the gloom that has taken over the small city of nearly 60,000. "The rain in our city today represents the tears of sadness and grief that flow from our hearts brought about by the terrible and senseless loss of these two heroes we dearly love," said Fredericton Police Force chaplain Reverent Verner Drost. The parade included a massed band, several police motorcycles, and Grimsby, a light grey, 10-year-old police horse co-owned by Burns and fellow Fredericton officer Const. Stefan Decour...

Cornwall funeral home faces hearing over alleged paperwork violations - Standard FreeholderSaturday, March 02, 2019
McArthur Bros. & MacNeil Funeral Home & Chapel in Cornwall and Parker Funeral Home in Morrisburg are in peril of being shut down because the owner and funeral director of both businesses, Bonnie Parker, may be stripped of her licence.Last month, the Bereavement Authority of Ontario (BAO) issued a notice saying it intends to revoke Parker's funeral director and funeral establishment operator licences because of "financial mismanagement and record keeping compliance and misconduct." Parker said she intends to vigorously dispute these allegations and has already launched an appeal to challenge them in front of a tribunal.Parker believes she will win the appeal and plans to continue operating normally until the situation is resolved one way or the other."I'm here to take people of people in their time of need. I feel that I am needed in this city," said Parker. "I love Cornwall. It's a world of possibilities here."The BAO is to the funeral industry what a college of physicians is to doctors, or a bar association is to lawyers. If Parker loses her licences, she would no longer be able to run the two funeral homes she owns, putting their futures in serious jeopardy.The organization's CEO and registrar, Carey Smith, could not go into the specific circumstances of any alleged rule violations that have led them to try...
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.

Gaydha Uldine MUNRO (nee ASHLEY) - Red Deer AdvocateSaturday, March 02, 2019
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.
A special thank you to the Palliative Home Care Team, especially Shannon and Sarah, and to the exceptional staff of the Red Deer Hospice. In keeping with Gaydha’s wishes, there will be no funeral or memorial service.

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. "He was just a health consci...
