Atlantic to Europe from Longeueil, Quebec. Postings through the late 50s and early 60s saw him training the RCAF’s (and NATO’s) growing cadre of pilots in Portage la Prairie, Saskatoon and Gimli. His experience with accident investigation within the Flight Safety Directorate in Ottawa from 1965-68 helped initiate safety procedures that dramatically brought down the accident rate amongst new jet pilots. After a year’s study in Staff College in Kingston and operational training in Chatham and Cold Lake, Bruce Burgess returned to Europe, commanding 441 and 439 reconnaissance squadrons flying CF-104s in Germany and studying with the Royal Air Force Warfare College at RAF Manby in 1972. Returning to the Air Requirements Directorate in Ottawa from 1973-77, he helped shepherd the acquisition of the next generation of CF-18 (hornet) fighter aircraft. Highlights of his later career include Base Commander at CFB Comox (1977-80), Defense Attache in London (1980-82), Chief of Staff Air Force Operations, Winnipeg (1982-84) and Deputy Chief of Staff of Operations at Aerospace Defense Command in Colorado Springs (1984-87). He was awarded the Order of Military Merit in 1984, supplementing his earlier Special Service Medal (NATO-OTAN) and Canadian Decoration. He retired with Faith to Lancaster, Ontario in 1987. Bruce Burgess was a citizen airman who lived life with integrity, humility, humour, a strong sense of responsibility and a profound commitment to Canada. The warmth of his personality, his dedication to duty, his courage and his charm enriched us all. The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday April 7, 2018 at St. Andrew’s and Knox Church, 21102 Concession Road 2, S. Glengarry, Bainsville, Ontario. The family will receive visitors on Friday April 6, 2018 from 2 to 4 p.m., and from 7 to 9 p.m., at the Munro & Morris Funeral Home, 46 Oak Street, Lancaster (613-347-3629).  www.munromorris.comDORAIS, Monique (Dufort) - At the Glengarry Memorial Hospital, Alexandria on Monday, March 26, 2018.

(Facebook/Mount Royal University)Bird's younger brother, David Bird, called him "a friend and a role model.""He always provided his little brother with an example to follow and gave guidance," he said. "In the early years, this guidance was in the form of bruises from his brotherly charley horses, and in the latter years, in the form of time spent and heartfelt talks where he was able to impart his knowledge and amazing spirit."David said the family is hoping an ongoing Transportation Safety Board investigation will provide them with some answers as to what caused the crash."There's lots of lingering questions," he said. "That will hopefully give us some answers. The family would love to see some answers."A funeral for Johnson is planned for Feb. 24 at St. Michael's Catholic Community. Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Kyle, Kyra, Kieanna, Dominic, Phoenix and Jordan; her brother and sisters: Jack (Rita) of Ashburn, ON, Ann (Steve) of Winnipeg, MB, Mary of Montreal, QC, Nell of Winnipeg, MB, Lucy of Portage La Prairie, MB, and Ruth (John) of Toronto, ON; and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, Matthew and Antonina Davidchuk, her sister, Leah, and brother Michael. Sandra was born in Glinsk, Poland in 1933. Her parents lovingly referred to her as Sasha. When she was four years old, her family immigrated to Canada, settling in Swan River, MB, where her father was a farmer. She and her siblings enjoyed life on the farm, picking berries and climbing trees. At age 16, Sandra moved to Winnipeg, and then Edmonton, AB to finish grade 12 and attend Bible College. She moved to Vancouver to attend the University of British Columbia and became a teacher. To help pay for her schooling, she worked as a telephone operator and joined the Air Force reserve. In 1960, while attending university, Sandra met George Dawson at the Baptist Church. She was attracted to him because he was so spontaneous. Little did she know that she was in for so many adventures with George! Sandra's first teaching job was in Surrey, BC. She and George then moved to Northern B.C., and various places in Ontario before moving back to BC around 1974, and settled in Quesnel until 1984. Sandra resumed her schooling in 1985 and obtained her Master's Degree in Educational P...

Thursday, 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.ca

Thursday, 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!
