Seven unlicensed cannabis dispensaries quickly open in Pikwàkanagàn, population 450 - Ottawa CitizenSaturday, March 02, 2019
Pikwàkanagàn.But he admits that there's also a level of risk."It's scary when you know you can be shut down," he said.The ground zero of cannabis in Ontario is Tyendinaga, near Belleville, which is reportedly home to at least 50 dispensaries. The Tyendinaga Mohwak Council has held a series of meetings to discuss cannabis operations and decided to adopt interim regulations governing recreational cannabis, saying that the community wanted its rights and interests in the benefits of cannabis respected while protecting the community. A final regulatory regime is to be presented and ratified by April.Alderville First Nation on Rice Lake near Cobourg has developed its own "cannabis model," which includes standards for youth protection, health and safety, labelling and a complaints process. Last month, it presented a proposal for an ombudsperson to provide an impartial process for complaints about cannabis businesses from members of the community or the general public.Besides the employment and economic spinoffs, the members of the Pikwàkanagàn Cannabis Business Association say they have already contributed to the local food bank, sponsored needy families and helped to pay for funerals."We're not talking about a shady market of shady people," said Bernard. "We want to build a hospice centre. We want to give back."Are there dangers to the community? Illicit opiates are already being sold in the community, said Bernard. "If you're looking at what will destroy families, there should be more of a focus on opiates."Jay Greenwood, who operates Green Grass Oasis in a space that used to be his garage, said there would be more of a danger to Pikwàkanagàn if it were known as "poverty central" instead of gaining a reputation as "pot central."The association is looking for a band council resolution, the equivalent of a bylaw. But that hasn't happened yet.Chief Kirby Whiteduck did not respond to a request for an interview. But others who live in the area have been critical of the proliferation of dispensaries.Michael Ilgert, who lives about two kilometres from Pikwàkanagàn, said he objects to seven dispensaries opening nearby without any political or police reaction."The rules should be applied equally. Even the city of Toronto could only get five licences," he said.ALSO IN THE NEWS:Judge assures disabled romance fraud victim he's ‘not a fool'Twenty-one-year-old former Carleton U student pleads guilty to possession of child pornWest Carleton warriors advance to finals for a chance to win $100,000 for charity

35 years ago Delia Adriano was dropped off in front of her Oakville home but she never made it inside - Toronto StarThursday, December 14, 2017
Delia Adriano filled an Oakville funeral home last night while others waited outside for up to half an hour to pay their repects. The 26-year-old woman's body was found near Campbelleville six weeks afer she disappeared outside her Oakville home. Nov. 11 1982. (Wilkes, Jim / Toronto Star) The mystery around who killed the Toronto secretary — the second of four sisters and a member of Oakville’s tight-knit Portuguese community — remains a cold case — file 67034-82. But whoever pulled her into a black abyss of evil that night probably knew his victim, say homicide investigators over the years. Delia’s death still haunts her sister Zelia Paul, 56, who lives in Oakville. A wife and mother of two grown children, Paul was 21 years old and living at home when Delia disappeared. “You suddenly become this celebrity that no one wants to be,” said Paul of the publicity that surrounded her family following her sister’s death. Although Paul describes herself as a happy person who has gotten on with her life, she can never forget the injustice done to her sister when Delia’s life was snatched from her. “I was 21 and at a very impressionable time in my life. I became terrified of my own shadow and to this day I look over my shoulder. This person may still be around. You’re never the same.” Burnt in her memory is the day that two detectives arrived on her doorstep on Nov. 7 — a Sunday morning — to tell her that Delia’s body had been identified through dental records. “I wondered, ‘Oh, my God, we’re nobody. We don’t have any money. Why us?’ ” she recalled, knowing that the hardest part — telling her mother — lay ahead of her. An autopsy failed to determine the cause of Delia’s death or whether she had been sexually assaulted. Over the years, police have remained tight-lipped about the results of the autopsy and the possibility of sexual assault, citing it as an ongoing investigation. The front page of the Tues., Sept. 28, 1982 Toronto Star reports that Delia Adriano has vanished from her Oakville home. (toronto star) During the initial investigation, hundreds of people were interviewed and no charges were laid. This included Delia’s fiancé, Danny Dutra, who was investigated several times; police were satisfied that he wasn’t involved. Witnesses provided Halton Regional Police with a description of events occurring at approximately 10:30 p.m. on the Sunday, Sept. 26, 1982, the night Delia went missing. They reported hearing a woman screaming a few blocks from her home, in the Wildwood and Sla...

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. (...
