Founder of Cornerstone Family Dentistry in Peterborough dies after weekend incident - Kawartha Media GroupThursday, August 18, 2016
Ontario Fire Marshal and the Office of the Coroner are investigating but the incident is considered an accident with no foul play suspected.
Police say the incident happened near Burnt River in Somerville Township. Three people were reportedly hurt, although police say two did not appear to be seriously injured.
OPP confirmed Dr. Buys, 55, of Selwyn Township, died of her injuries on Aug. 16.
According to Cornerstone’s website, Dr. Buys moved to Peterborough in 1985. The following year she and her husband bought a home in the City’s north end and converted into a dental practice, which officially opened in 1987.
“It was small but quaint,” Dr. Buys wrote on the website. “We had three small rooms to operate out of. The staff of four found that there was no need for an intercom as we could easily communicate together. It was like family.”
In addition to growing her practice and serving her patients, according to Cornerstone, Dr. Buys dedicated time to volunteering and donating to the United Way, the Festival of Trees, the Dragon Boat Festival, Five Counties Children’s Centre, as well as many other organizations in the Peterborough area.
“She enjoys giving back to a community who has supported her and her team through the years,” reads part of Dr. Buys’ bio on the practice’s website, which notes she also enjoyed playing golf, skiing, gardening, fashion “and all of the fun stuff life has to offer such as spending time with her husband and two sons.”
Turco, her long-time patient, desecribed Dr. Buys as a "lovely and classy woman."
"I'm going to miss her," she added. "It's so sad what happened. When I found out, I was devastated. It's really heart-wrenching. She didn't deserve that; no one does. She had so much potential. You have to wonder what the good lord was thinking."
Speaking in general and not specifically about this incident, Kawartha Lakes Fire Prevention Officer Fritz Mattern notes that caution should always be used with products like kerosene lanterns. Such lanterns should only be used in well-ventilated areas well away from smoking materials or fire.
“Do not refill them while they are still warm,” he advises.
“Make sure all spillage is contained and cleaned up or evaporated before lighting.”

Surviving the death care business - CBC.caWednesday, March 27, 2019
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 TodayWednesday, 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."

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...
