No Liars Share New LP, 'The Cause & The Cure' - Kill Your StereoThursday, April 12, 2018
The Cause & The Cure’, but now I’m really paying attention.For this new record, the independent Canadian band enlisted Jesse Gander of Rain City Recorders (Japandroids, White Lung) to record this debut full-length and Joao Carvalho (Alexisonfire, Arkells, Silverstein, Protest The Hero) to master the album as well. And as such, ‘The Cause & The Cure’ is just dripping in that particular kind of raw and honest production that suits No Liars‘ brand of melodic post-hardcore perfectly. Case in point: songs like the emotive ‘Guilt Trip’, the groovy riffage of ‘Animal‘, and the glorious, dynamic title track that closes out this new LP.A single listen to No Liars shows that these five guys are pulling a metric fuck tonne of influence from other, bigger Canadian acts; the dual vocals, deep emotion and massive hooks of Alexisonfire, the anger and energy of Comeback Kid, as well as the riffs and grooves of Billy Talent. Yet they handle these crystal clear inspirations well enough and in part, offer up a solid mixture of burning hardcore instrumentals, plenty of well-written melodious sections, some really passionate screams and catchy vocal melodies to boot. Also, unintentional or not, this band also carry on the very same songwriting torch that Funeral For A Friend lit and left on their last couple records (basically everything from ‘Welcome Home Armageddon‘ and ...

Gary Vey, former Gander airport CEO and MHA, dies at 65 - CBC.caFriday, June 2, 2017
The long-time head of the Gander International Airport Authority has died.Gary Vey, who served as airport president and CEO for more than 13 years, died on Christmas Day, according to a notice published on the website of Stacey's Funeral Home.He was 65.Vey led the airport authority between 2001 and 2014, said a statement from the authority. It said before that he was the head of a group that worked to transfer the airport from Transport Canada to the authority.He retired as president and CEO in July 2014.According to Gander Mayor Claude Elliott, Vey was instrumental in guiding Gander airport through its tough financial difficulties in 2006. Vey and the airport authority warned in 2006 that the institution was at risk of declaring bankruptcy.By May 2007, officials had secured a deal with the federal government that guaranteed up to $5 million for the airport."At times, it didn't look very good at the airport. At times we thought it might close. At times we thought we didn't know how we were going to get through...
Funding cuts threaten James Hornell Boys and Girls Club: director - AdvertiserWednesday, December 7, 2016
In central Newfoundland there are Liberal MHAs – our MHA Al Hawkins, MHA Jerry Dean, representing the Botwood club and Hon. John Haggie, representing Gander,” he says. “I do hope (they) are working behind the scenes to have this senseless decision reversed. The time for standing up and being counted is getting very close. To all ministers with Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada in their districts, including Hon. Dale Kirby, please put it on all of your calendars to act as pallbearers at our funeral when we close our doors,” he added.Noftle was also appalled to hear Premier Dwight Ball say that there were no cuts to ‘core’ funding. “Under the Conservatives our grant was $37,440. (The premier) just signed a letter – I thought I had won the 6/49 – telling us of all the great things we and other organizations like us do; (then that we) would receive $25,500,” said Noftle. “To add insult to injury, (the premier) had the face to come on NTV News and say no one was cut. Please explain this new math, as it should come from additional money made available in the GTYO funding, not by cutting our grants which have not been increased in ten years!”Noftle noted that the House Speaker Tom Osborne has been talking about increased spending for MHA districts’ allowances because they have not been increased since the MHAs’ constituency-spending scandal and thus an increase might be needed.“Our organization was not involved in any spending scandals, yet (the government’s) answer to us is massive cuts,” Noftle said, “Please tell me what's wrong with this scenario? If government were directly providing the services we in the non-profit sector are providing, their expenses would be 10 times that of ours. There would be no employees working at minimum wages and without benefits, yet we do not complain.”Noftle has some advice for the present government and he says they can afford it because it is free.“In 12 short months, you have lost touch with the people who elected you,” he said.“You are starting to believe your own PR – which we pay for. Failure to (keep in touch with the people) may very well result in your stay on the governing side very short, and the way organizations like ours are being treated, not short enough.“This government was less than truthful on the campaign trail about the direction (it) would take us. This (they) have accomplished in one year. I am afraid to imagine (their) record in three year’s time.”Noftle said that his father, Ivor Noftle, a devoted Liberal going back to Joey Smallwood’s time, had a...
Hundreds come out for Dick Power's funeral - Gander BeaconFriday, November 4, 2016
Moores Memorial Stadium in Harbour Grace. In that same time, he was a coach in the local minor hockey system.
Prior to that, he played junior and senior hockey in St. John’s, Grand Falls-Windsor and Gander.
During those years, Power made an unimaginable number of relationships with players, parents and others around the community and the province. Power died last week at the age of 75.
Inside a somber S.W. Moores Memorial Stadium in Harbour Grace last Friday, hundreds came out to pay their respects to their friend and, in a lot of cases, their hockey coach and teammate.
A place usually so full of colour had black drapes wrapped around the portion of the ice surface that Power’s old office overlooked.
CeeBees colours graced the stage behind the microphone.
Mourners filled more than half of the ice surface at the rink. Pictures of Power flashed on screens and various news clippings were displayed along the boards on both sides.
Former players dressed in CeeBees uniforms; firefighters and others listened as close friends shared stories of Power.
They heard how he loved a good prank and how he’d offer to help however he could. Close friends like Corey Crocker and Tom Snow took part in the ceremony, as well.
Former pupil Daniel Cleary drew tears from the eyes of some when he spoke of the affect Power had on his career. At times, he fought his own e...
Deer Lake town council approves crematorium for Main Street funeral home - The Western StarThursday, April 12, 2018
Ball.The mayor said the town researched the issue and the particular unit Parsons Funeral Home is proposing to use.Newfoundland and Labrador does not have emission standards that are specific to crematoriums, but Ball said every indication was that the emissions from the crematorium unit would easily meet all the existing standards in the province.The funeral home is already in a zone designated as commercial, so no rezoning was required to permit the crematorium.Ball said council understands the sensitive nature of the topic, but believes they made the right decision.“Today’s technology has all the checks and balances needed and we don’t think there is any reason for anyone to be alarmed,” he said.Let's block ads!
