Obituary: “Doughnut King” Ron Joyce has died - TheSpec.com

Saturday, March 2, 2019

The Joyce Family Foundation was created to provide access to education for children and youth facing significant financial need or other barriers to success. The foundation has donated more than $185 million since its start. Joyce's generosity "has been felt across the country," said The Joseph Brant Hospital in Burlington, and its namesake foundation. Joyce donated $7.5 million to support the hospital's redevelopment and expansion. "We have lost a great Canadian and he will be missed," read the statement from hospital CEO Eric Vandewall and foundation president Anissa Hilborn. In addition to the Order of Canada, Joyce's philanthropy earned him numerous awards, including the title of philanthropist of the year from the Burlington Community Foundation and a Canadian Red Cross NS Power of Humanity Award. After selling Tim Hortons, Joyce moved on to establish the Fox Harb'r Resort in Wallace, Nova Scotia, in an effort to boost tourism and employment in the province. Joyce, married twice, is survived by seven children, their spouses and his grandchildren. The first Tim Hortons on Ottawa Street: On May 17, 1964, a coffee shop called Tim Hortons officially opened on Ottawa Street in Hamilton. Hamilton Spectator file photo It was the first Hortons in a chain that 50 years later would soar to more than 4,000 stores in North America. In the beginning, only coffee and doughnuts were sold, compared to the much wider menu of soups, sandwiches and other dishes offered today. The company says two Tim Hortons creations - apple fritters and Dutchies - were the most popular doughnuts in the 1960s, and remain among the most popular items on the menu today.

Fire deaths could prompt new safety measures, upgraded building code: experts - Burnaby Now

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Halifax Fire Deputy Chief Dave Meldrum has declined to speak about the nature of the fire, but he told reporters last week that "new homes are built with light-weight construction. Once fire barriers are penetrated, rapid fire spread is possible in new construction." Ehab Zalok, a professor of structural fire safety engineering at Carleton University, said homes used to be built using solid wood. He said most new homes are now built using engineered wood joists or trusses and steel structural sections and then covered by gypsum board or drywall as protection. "If the gypsum board is gone, everything behind it is gone in no time," Zalok said, describing how quickly fires can spread in new homes. "We should go back to building with solid wood." He added that codes and standards provide minimum fire protection requirements, and that dedicated developers and home owners should go beyond the minimums "knowing they are protecting their lives and properties." Mike Holmes, one of Canada's leading contractors and a well-known television host, said Monday new homes should be built with fire-resistant products to slow down the spread of a fire. Holmes said older homes were built with hardwoods and older lumber with tighter grains that are more resistant to "flame spread." He said the young wood used in new homes is more flammable. "We can build with wood, we just need to treat it," he said. "We have products that can treat it, there is a pink spray, there is a blue spray, there are sprays that can help reduce the risk of a flash burn." Holmes said building codes are a minimum standard, and that homeowners could demand higher standards, including fire-resistant products, from builders. "We tend to not pay attention to things until there is a catastrophe," he said. "This should be a wake up call that we need to take things more seriously." Holmes said without the use of more fire-resistant materials and products, sprinkler systems may be an option for some homeowners. "I don't want to introduce more plumbing in a home that I'm trying to keep dry," he said. "However, if we're not going to use ...

'A launching pad to start over': Three women find new lives with support of Kingston Interval House - The Kingston Whig-Standard

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Australia.She described their life Down Under as "very comfortable," and admitted their new one in Kingston was a significant transition. She wants to work, but she's found that Ontario's social assistance has made it next to impossible. She said the problem is that if you earn more than $500 a month, the province starts taxing it dollar-for-dollar up to 50 per cent. After 50 per cent, a person loses social assistance and any benefits, she said."It makes it frightening. I know why people don't want to get off of it," Wiwchar said."I went to an employment agency and was told basically I'm unemployable to them … I went home and I cried. How am I unemployable? I worked as a medic, as a makeup artist, I managed retail, and I have office training."Kerry is also on disability due to severe arthritis and is diagnosed bipolar. Her life has not been an easy one. In the winter of 2016 she says police recommended she reach out to Interval House because her ex-boyfriend, who constantly assaulted and stole from Kerry, had been released on parole and hadn't attended his halfway house."He just came and went as he pleased," Kerry said of her relationship with the man. "His whole family for six years just totally took over my life … he would inject me [with hydromorphone] while I was sleeping."At one point, she said, he kept her overdosed for three days so that he could steal her medications. Her 10-year-old son and dog at the time waited for her to wake."My son just laid with me," Kerry said. "He should have called an ambulance but he was afraid he'd be taken away."Taking her medications left her mentally unstable and unable to fully care for herself. Eventually it hospitalized her for five months, forcing Family and Children's Services of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington to take her preteen son away.Kerry was once a successful medical secretary. She says she was good at her job, but she was addicted to crack cocaine. She was introduced to the drug by another former partner who was also abusive.When she learned that her former partner was being released and was on the run, she was scared that he'd kill her. She called Interval House, stayed in the shelter for six months, and then lived in one of Robin's Hope's accessible units for nearly a year and a half.Kerry has been clean for three and a half years and gives back to Interval House by running painting classes at Robin's Hope. Kerry has also done her best to separate herself from destructive people, and while her sister has custody of her son, she said that relationship is becoming stronger every visit.Kerry explains you have to want to get better."I wanted to do the programs. You don't realize about how naive you are about red flags [in relationships] and boundaries," Kerry said. "I didn't realize how much of a sucker I felt I was, but also how mentally unhealthy I felt that I was to let someone control my mind like that. Call you stupid, make you feel less than."Making Claire feel she was "less than" was her former spouse's strategy to control her. A highly educated woman with a doctorate, Claire was often invited to speak at conferences around the wo...

11-year-old Riya Rajkumar remembered as a dreamer - CTV News Windsor

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Last Updated Wednesday, February 20, 2019 7:05PM EST BRAMPTON, Ont. -- An 11-year-old girl allegedly killed by her father in southern Ontario was a dreamer, a dancer and a singer who "always saw the good in every situation." It was standing room only at an Etobicoke funeral home as friends and family of Rajkumar gathered on Wednesday. In a eulogy delivered during the Hindu service, which was held at the Lotus Funeral and Cremation Centre on Wednesday morning, Riya was described as a "positive child" who loved life and "saw the good in every situation." On Tuesday night, about 100 mourners gathered to listen to speeches, poems and songs as the community remembered Riya Rajkumar in Brampton, Ont. "My daughter Riya was taken from me too early," Priya Ramdin, who did not attend the vigil, said in a statement read by Peel police Deputy Chief Chris McCord. "She never liked to be negative and always saw the good in every situation. If I'm ever upset, she would say 'Mama, don't be sad, look at the positives."' The day Riya died -- Valentine's Day -- was also her and her mother's birthdays. "Early that day, we went to do our nails and her choice of colour was red," Ramdin said. "She was so excited for her birthday, looking forward to having dinner later that evening. Never did I think that my daughter woul...
