Trudeau remembers MP Arnold Chan as a 'faithful and eloquent' guardian of democracy - The Globe and Mail

Thursday, September 14, 2017

House of Commons and represent his constituents, who he cared about so deeply."A long-time Liberal, Mr. Chan worked as a staffer at Queen's Park before being elected to the Scarborough-Agincourt riding in a by-election in June, 2014. He was first diagnosed with cancer in January, 2015, and after taking a six-month leave of absence, he was given the all-clear and ran successfully for re-election in October, 2015. In February, 2016, he discovered his cancer had returned, but continued to work on Parliament Hill.Colleagues – including Conservatives and New Democrats – remembered Mr. Chan, who also served as deputy house leader, as a fiercely intelligent, driven and dedicated parliamentarian, who genuinely believed in public service and pushed his fellow MPs from all political stripes to do better.NDP MP David Christopherson sat with Mr. Chan on the procedure and house affairs committee, which became heated this spring after the Liberal government tried to change the rules of the Commons. Mr. Christopherson recalled their interactions on the sidelines of meetings, where Mr. Chan always attempted to mediate solutions that would work for everyone."He was wonderful to work with," Mr. Christopherson said. "He had no interest in games. He wanted to focus on the matter at hand, and he wanted to do it in a non-partisan way."Story continues below advertisementConservative MP Blake Richards, who also sits on the committee, said he was inspired by Mr. Chan's determination to attend meetings, even as he visibly struggled with his illness."You knew that that was very difficult on his health, and he was suffering," Mr. Richards said. "It was never about him, right? He just did what he had to do. And it was such a great example for all of us."Mr. Chan's funeral is expected in the next 10 days, with Mr. Oliphant to help conduct the service. On Monday, all parties are expected to deliver tributes to Mr. Chan in the House of Commons – a fitting spot, Mr. Oliphant said, for a man who so revered it."He reminded every MP all the time about the nobility of being an MP and about the importance of the House," Mr. Oliphant said."He tried to impart that on other MPs – that it was a place of discourse, a place of discussion, a place of conversation. And he loved that."Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Trudy Wilson's swim of a lifetime - REM | Real Estate Magazine

Friday, February 17, 2017

Trent-Severn Waterway, completing it via dozens of nine- to 12-hour laps, from July to September.Born and raised in the Toronto suburb of Agincourt, Wilson moved with her husband, Harvey, and their children to Bridgenorth in 2008 in search of a quieter lifestyle. Ten years previous, the couple’s daughter, Lauren Taylor Wilson, died two days after she was born due to birth injuries. The Wilsons’ remaining children range in age from four to 17.Ever since her daughter’s death, Trudy Wilson had wanted to create a pledge in Lauren’s memory. By 2016, the 13-year real estate industry professional had decided to swim the Trent-Severn Waterway and raise funds to support high-priority needs at SickKids Hospital in medical research, education and patient care through the Possibilities Fund.Although she was a competitive swimmer in high school, Wilson was now a recreational swimmer who’d be facing the biggest challenge of her life. She had done some endurance training with a personal trainer and swam in a pool, but she admits she underestimated how challenging the swim through the various rivers, lakes and canals would be.“If I had planned the minutiae of the entire trip, I probably would not have started,” she says. “And I could not have done it without the incredible support of my family and colleagues.”The voyage was anything but smooth sailing.After securing permission from Parks Canada, including a stipulation to canoe through the lift lock system, Wilson wanted to start her swim on June 20. Sadly, her mother, Be...

Appeal ends, nearly $6000 raised - Sault Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Hunter Chamberlain and their son, Bentley, died last Tuesday. Their SUV, northbound on Highway 69 near Parry Sound, crossed the centre line and collided with a transport. The SUV caught fire. Ontario Provincial Police have not released the names of the deceased pending identification by Ontario Centre of Forensic Sciences. Whitehead's best friend, Rebecca Chapman, launched a GoFundMe appeal (https://www.gofundme.com/help-support-jodey-whitehead) on Friday to help Victoria's mother, Jodey Whitehead, pay for funeral costs. Her goal was $2,000. That target was exceeded by more than 50 per cent within 24 hours with $3,186 donated by 66 contributors by 10 a.m Saturday. By Sunday afternoon, the tally grew to $5,980 from 136 donors. In an update, Chapman thanked donors and said the appeal was finished. “As per request by the family, I will be closing donations and taking the funds to them,” she said. “They decided that this is an overwhelming, but very appreciated amount of support, and that they would like me to close the fund as we have reached nearly $6,000.”Many donors offered their condolences about the trio's death. “My heart goes out to anyone impacted by this tragedy,” said Danielle Heatley. “I can't imagine the pain of losing a child and grandchild,” said MaryClaire Wood in a post. “I pray you find the strength to deal with this terrible loss.“Thanks to everyone for their generosity,” said Jonathan White...

'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Flyers and Marlboros.  (Vince Talotta / Toronto Star)Pejcinovski was a promising prospect in next year’s Ontario Hockey League draft. “We remember him as a teammate and friend,” West said, urging the boys to “sit together, support each other, and keep playing the game.” And they did, but with a twist. The two teams tossed their sticks into pile at centre ice — with no discernible divide between Flyers and Marlboros. Players picked sticks at random, shuffling them like a deck of cards into two new teams.They then peeled their rival jerseys and put on new ones, black or white with a capital “R,” for Roy, in burgundy. The colour in the boys’ socks — orange and black for the Flye...

Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and Times

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Humboldt later this week. https://t.co/DvpAsm2Ybw#HumboldtStrong#PutYourStickOut#XBRpic.twitter.com/h2EyHhQjrj — City of Brockville (@BrockvilleON) April 9, 2018Organizations across Ontario were paying tribute to the victims of last week’s fatal bus crash.The bus carrying the junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a semi truck in northeast Saskatchewan on Friday, killing 15 people and leaving 14 others injured.The fatalities included 10 young teammates, ranging in age from 15 to 21, and five team personnel. Like many people across the country, the Wilsons placed a hockey stick on their porch in what has become a universal tribute to the lost players.The book of condolences is the product of city staff’s collaboration with Brockville’s Irvine Funeral Home.The tragedy also hit close to home for Mike Galbraith, a funeral director at Irvine who helped coordinate the book of condolences.“As a hockey dad, as a parent, as a funeral director, I can appreciate the chaos that’s going on,” he said.“Sometimes, people need an outlet.”Signing a book of condolences is a small way of confronting the powerlessness one feels in the wake of such a tragedy, said Galbraith.“This one’s kind of near and dear to the heart,” he added.“If I had the means and the time, I would fly out there today on a plane and help them out.”The Brockville Braves plan on contributing one dollar from every ticket sold to Tuesday’s Game at the Memorial Centre to a crowdsourcing fund for the victims. Galbraith said another version of the book of condolences will be set up at the arena ahead of that game.“It will all be added to one and sent off at the end of the week,” he added.Some 30 people had signed the city hall book as of mid-afternoon Monday, as word of the tribute began slowly to spread.Some of the people signing came from out of town, including Prescott, Mallorytown, Delta and Kingston.All of the local signatures and messages will be conveyed to Humboldt city hall.Elsewhere locally, organizers of the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend used their Facebook account to post tributes to the Broncos and a link to the crowdsourcing page.Brockville Mayor David Henderson said the scope of the tragedy extends beyond the world of hockey.“I think it wa...
