Thousands of police officers expected at regimental funeral in Fredericton - CTV News

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

August 15, 2018 4:47PM ADT Last Updated Wednesday, August 15, 2018 8:58PM ADT FREDERICTON -- Thousands of police officers and first responders from across the country are expected to attend a regimental funeral Saturday for two Fredericton constables killed in the line of duty, in what's expected to be a strong show of support for a police force in mourning. Martin Gaudet, Fredericton's deputy police chief, said Wednesday that organizing the event is a "monumental task" as members of the force grieve the loss of constables Robb Costello and Sara Burns. "The hardest thing for me in regards to arranging all of this is to simply move on one hour at a time or one day at a time," Gaudet said Wednesday outside the Fredericton police department. "We are going to celebrate their lives and we're going to do it with dignity and with respect. That's the task and we're not going to fail." He said a large portion of those who gather at the Aitken University Centre will be uniformed officers from around the country. "We are expecting thousands of law enforcement personnel and first responders from around the continent to join us to pay tribute to our fallen officers," Gaudet said. The police c...

Members of the Fredericton Police Force carry the casket for Const. Robb Costello at the regimental funeral for Costello and Const. Sara Burns, killed in the line of duty, in Fredericton on Saturday, Aug. 18, 2018. The two city police officers were among four people who died in a shooting in a residential area on the city's north side. Andrew Vaughan/The Canadian Press The deaths of two police officers have "created a ripple effect that stretches out as far as the ocean is deep," Fredericton's police chief told thousands of mourners at a regimental funeral on Saturday. Leanne Fitch's voice shook as she described her time working with Constables Robb Costello and Sara Burns, saying the pair died as heroes after responding to reports of a shooting, which also left civilians Bobbie Lee Wright and Donnie Robichaud dead. "When we sign up to serve and protect our city, we are committing our entire life's work to our service," Fitch told the crowd of loved ones, dignitaries and fellow police officers ga...

Surviving the death care business - CBC.ca

MacDonald said."Some of it is burnout. You have to make sure with all the stress you deal with on a daily basis you know how to relax yourself, how to unwind."The New Brunswick Funeral Directors and Embalmers Association doesn't keep statistics on retention rates, however, funeral homes are "constantly looking for licensed funeral directors," said executive director Marc Melanson.While the pay can be appealing - $47,319 annually according to the Department of Post Secondary Education Training and Labour - compassion fatigue is a reality, along with unconventional work hours."It's not a Monday to Friday nine-to-five job," said Melanson. "It's evenings, weekends and holidays."People who get into the funeral profession genuinely want to help people. But a funeral home is never closed."Viewing rooms are often rearranged, making physicality a key component of the job. (Sarah Trainor/CBC News)The workday can be fluid and intense. It might start with MacDonald doing prep work on an infant that would afford parents more time with their child, then a full shift in gears to oversee a 103-year-old's celebration of life service in a space filled with laughter."You wear a lot of different hats and it changes so quickly," she said."I could be making funeral arrangements with a family, I could be directing a funeral, I could be painting - like literally building maintenance."We get dirty in our suits. We garden, mow the lawns, wash the cars, we do it all."The job requires a good deal of physicality. Viewing rooms are frequently rearranged to make space for what families want to bring to a visitation. Personal touches have been as dainty as jewelry and as grand as a motorcycle.Some scenes hard to processNot everyone is in a bed when they die, and moving a body can take some physical and mental effort."Some things you see you don't ever forget, and you wish you could. Especially when you walk into a scene where you can imagine their last moments."MacDonald said those moments can be difficult to process."It's hard to think of them as being a person in the way that you're protecting your mental state," she said."You say, 'I have to move them from one place to another,' and after, you reflect on that and think, 'OK, that was a human being and I feel terrible for them. And I'm going to probably have bad dreams for a while....

Sanaz Shirshekar Envisions Saint John As 'Playground For Architects To Experiment' - Huddle Today

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

It allowed me to do both." It also allowed her to work at two renowned firms in Canada and the United States and has now brought the Toronto-born architect to New Brunswick to start a business of her own. After graduating from architecture school at McGill in 2006, Shirshekar started working for Toronto-based KPMB as a project architect. There, she got to work on projects such as the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal, the UBC Alumni Centre, The Globe & Mail's new interior offices and the Fort York Branch Library. "We were aiming for it to be the 100th public library in Toronto, and it turned out to be the 101st," says Shirshekar, "which is still cool." Fort York Branch Library (Image: torontopubliclibrary.ca) From there she went to work in New York with Yabu Pushelberg as a senior designer. She was in the heart of Soho, working on projects that were more private and high-end, including a resort for Hyatt in Los Cabos, Mexico, and a project for a residential client in Bejing. For Shirshekar, it helped make her architecture experience more versatile. "I took that opportunity on because at KPMB I was getting a lot of those community, public space building projects. But I also wanted to be a little bit more seasoned as an architect and get some architectural interior experience," she says. "Yabu Pushelberg is really the expert for that. They are world renowned. They're really good at what they do and they're internationally known for their interior design excellence, so I really wanted to bring the architecture and the interior design together." Shirshekar recently moved to New Brunswick to be with her husband, Jamie Irving, the vice-president of Brunswick News. At that point, she was ready to start her own practice, Studio Shirshekar. "I feel all architects at some point, you feel like you've gotten enough experience and you want to give yourself an opportunity to try it out," she says. "Maybe it's not for everyone, but for me, I think i...
