Convoy evokes Canadian pride in North Bay - Vermilion StandardWednesday, March 27, 2019
About 100 vehicles, from big rigs to small cars, pull into the Motion Canada parking lot on Gormanville Road, Monday. The convoy was to stop in Arnprior Monday night before heading to Parlliament Hill in Ottawa Tuesday.PJ Wilson/The Nugget
Air horns blasted, flags and placards waved as the convoy pulled into the parking lot. Many of the messages were pro-pipeline. Many were anti-Trudeau. Make Canada Great Again was emblazoned on one of the pilot vehicles."I am Canadian and Justin Trudeau does not speak for me," read one sign in a truck window, while another called on the federal government to back off a carbon tax, which many of those present said would only hurt "the little guy.""We are going to show Trudeau we are united in this country. We are not separate anymore. We, the people of this country, will be heard . . . from farmers to veterans to yellow vests. We are all hard-working people who want to take our country back."Most of the vehicles carried placards and signs, many pushing for the construction of a pipeline from Alberta to the East Coast – the Energy East pipeline – while others called for the death of a federal carbon tax.The many diverse messages have been gathering support wherever the convoy has gone, Carritt said."It's just incredible to see all the support we have," he said. "the farther we go into Ontario, the greater support we see."We are trying to take back our country from a government that is not listening."And it is in the government's own interest to listen to the message they are bringing, Carritt said."We have developed a strong voice. I don't think they can help but listen."

Chris Edwards travelled from Orillia to take part in the rally, sharing his message about "being Canadian" and helping Alberta.That oil-rich province, he said, is being mistreated by the federal government. He raised the prospect of Alberta opting out of Canada, and "if Alberta leaves, what will happen to Canada?"His son, Seth, 14, agreed, saying that if Canadians don't pull together, "we will not let Justin Trudeau f*** up our country."I absolutely hate 99 per cent of his policies."We need a new government. Justin Trudeau is incompetent. He's spending money all in the wrong place."Seth Edwards, originally from England, said that country is descending into "a third world country," and everything the British government did wrong "Justin Trudeau is doing."It's sad to me.

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. (...
