'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto StarThursday, April 12, 2018
Four days ago, Roy Pejcinovski, 15, was murdered in a wrenching triple homicide in Ajax, killed alongside his mother Krassimira and little sister Venallia. Cory Fenn, 29, has been charged with three counts of second degree murder.When boys of the Don Mills Flyers bantam AAA team left the change rooms and stepped onto the ice at Canlan Ice Sports centre in Etobicoke, Sunday afternoon, they did so to absolute silence. That quiet slowly broke into applause from onlookers. Then, after a brief warm up, the two teams — the Flyers and the Toronto Marlboros — lined up facing each other at centre ice. The boys on both sides removed their helmets. Some tilted their heads down. Others looked ahead, toward the other team.“It’s difficult to know what to say,” Greater Toronto Hockey League president Don West said to the boys, and those watching. Rink 3 had been cordoned off for family and players only. At the entrance, a sign denoted the space as a private event, with a few photographs of Roy in uniform.Article Continued BelowPejcinovski had been in Flyers’ system since age 7, team man...
Four GoFundMe pages set up for family of Ajax murder victims - Toronto StarThursday, April 12, 2018
Four GoFundMe accounts are actively raising funds for an Ajax family, in the wake of a harrowing triple-homicide on Wednesday that took the lives of 39-year-old Krassimira Pejcinovski, her 13-year-old daughter Venallia and her 15-year-old son Roy. Police say the family was killed by Cory Fenn — who they believe was in a relationship with Krassimira. He was not the children’s father. Their father is now caring for his sole surviving child, a daughter named Victoria who was out of the house when the attack happened. The largest fundraising page, called the Pejcinovski Family Relief, was set up by Daytona Moyes to cover expenses related to the victims. “The remaining proceeds will cover therapies for the remaining family, a leave of absence for the father since he will not be returning to work for quite awhile, and hopefully tuition for the daughter,” their page description reads. As of Friday at 2:51 p.m, the campaign had amassed $52,037 of its $100,000 goal. Below, messages of support have amassed from friends and strangers alike.“Dear Victor...

Funeral service held for slain Ajax, Ont., woman and her two children - CTV NewsThursday, April 12, 2018
Last Updated Sunday, March 25, 2018 12:21PM EDT
TORONTO -- Hundreds of classmates, friends and relatives gathered on Saturday to mourn the deaths of a mother and her two children in Ajax, Ont. earlier this month.
Krassimira Pejcinovski and her 15-year-old son Roy, a lauded minor league hockey goalie, were found dead in their home on March 14th. Her 13-year-old daughter Venallia died hours later in hospital.
Police have charged Cory Fenn, who was in a relationship with Krassimira Pejcinovski, with second-degree murder in the deaths. Autopsy results showed that two of the victims were stabbed and the other strangled to death.
An emotional service at a Greek church in Toronto Saturday was filled with teenage classmates of the two children, as well as with Roy's hockey teammates who attended in their jerseys.
Krassimira Pejcinovski's former spouse, Vas Pejcinovski, and their only surviving daughter also attended the event.
Vas Pejcinovski expressed gratitude earlier this week about the support he had received from the community.
"There are no words to explain how we feel. Our hearts are broken," Vas Pejcinovski said Thursday. "I put my faith in God to give us comfort and guide us through this long journey toward healing."
Reese Dougall, a good friend of the two younger teens, said that he was trying to design purple an...

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa CitizenWednesday, March 27, 2019
He was heartbroken after failing his medical, but an English teacher told him that people would pay him to write. So he enrolled in the first journalism degree course taught at University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1948 and joining the newsroom of the Chatham Daily News.There, he worked under Richard "Dic" Doyle, but moved to Kirkland Lake when the Thomson newspaper chain made him editor-in-chief of the Northern Daily News. His time there was brief, however, as his girlfriend, Joyce Gordon, issued him an ultimatum: Northern Ontario or me. He chose her: they married in September 1952.In the meantime, he joined the newsroom of the Globe and Mail, where his mentor Doyle had been working for a year.As a reporter with the Globe, Davey covered national and international affairs, including the Suez Canal crisis, the St. Lawrence Seaway project and the cancellation of the Avro Arrow program. During the 1957 federal election campaign, he recognized that Tory leader John Diefenbaker was gaining momentum and might actually win, and convinced his editors to allow him to stay with the Chief's campaign for 40 days.

When Doyle became editor of the Globe in 1963, he chose Davey as his managing editor, and, according to Mills, the two raised the broadsheet's reputation from that of a local paper to a national one. Davey was managing editor for 15 years before joining the Vancouver Sun in 1978. He was publisher there until 1983, when he took over at the Gazette. He was publisher of the Citizen from 1989 to 1993. He was also president and chair of The Canadian Press, and co-founder and president of the Michener Awards Foundation that oversees the country's most prestigious journalism prize."He was the true journalist of journalists," says Kim Kierans, journalism professor at University of King's College in Halifax and Michener Foundation board member. "He told me when I last saw him in November, ‘If we're not providing the encouragement for journalism organizations and journalists within them to do the journalism that matters, then we're in trouble as a democracy.'"He was also a lovely man, smart and sparkling … with incredible enthusiasm for the business and its future."According to Mills, Davey, who in 2002 led a protest on the steps of the Ottawa Citizen after Mills was fired for running an editorial critical of then-prime minister Jean Chrétien, was known as tough and gruff, "but deep down he was a really kind and thoughtful person, and a very good friend who was always fair to people. But if you didn't know him, he could be intimidating."And although he called the shots on the job, it was Joyce who ruled the home roost. According to son Ric, his father only stopped the presses twice - once while at the Globe, when Joyce called him to report that she and Ric thought they had just seen a UFO."That was the kind of pull she had over him," says Ric.Clark Davey is survived by his wife, Joyce; brother Kenneth George; children Ric (Rita Celli), Kevin (Margaret) and Clark Jr. (...
