Winnipeg woman charged in death of teen with autism - CTV NewsThursday, December 14, 2017
The RCMP in Manitoba have charged a woman in connection with the 2016 death of an 18-year-old woman with severe autism who died in a foster home.
Lisa Marie Campbell, 26, of Winnipeg, was arrested Thursday. Police announced Monday she has been charged with manslaughter in the death of Lydia Whitford.
Whitford, who also had epilepsy and was non-verbal, had been living in a licensed foster home and was under the care of Sandy Bay Child and Family Services. On July 14, 2016, officers were called to the home, where they found Whitford’s body.
Officials initially believed Whitford had died of natural causes, but five months later, her death was ruled a homicide. It remains unclear what prompted that decision.
Whitford’s sister, Jessica Whitford, told CTV Winnipeg last December that she couldn’t understand why anyone would want to hurt Lydia.
Sandy Bay Child and Family Services closed the foster home after Whitford’s death and ordered a review.Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Service Canada after his social insurance number was somehow switched with his deceased mother's.He didn't realize anything was wrong until he returned home from burying her in her hometown of Winnipeg."I go home and I open the mailbox and son-of-a-gun, there's a letter there," he said.He said the letter was actually a Canadian federal tax slip that read: "Estate of Bryan Kupiak."'And he says yes, you're deceased'Kupiak said he was confused, so he called Service Canada and spoke to a customer service agent."And he says yes, you're deceased."To make matters worse, Kupiak says the ordeal meant his pension cheques were temporarily cancelled."It's just added stress that I don't need," he said.Kupiak said he gave the Kamloops funeral home both his and his mother's social insurance numbers when she was cremated and he believes somehow the two got mixed up, "and it just butterflied after that."Kupiak would not name the funeral home when asked but said he has been working with Service Canada and his Member of Parliament to try and sort the issue out.He is now pleased to announce he is officially alive again and sent beautiful roses to my staff thanking them for the resuscitation :) https://t.co/lEKSH3uV5n—

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.

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!
