The real 'Father of Confederation' – Part 2 - Cumberland News Now - Cumberland News Now

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

By this time, he was “Canada’s Grand Old Man”. He had outlived all his contemporaries. His last stop was in Amherst. The town celebrated for a whole week. The Canadian Prime Minister (Robert Borden) attended, as well as public figures from far and wide. Thousands of school children gathered and cheered, each waving a small Union Jack. Just two years later, on Oct.30, 1915, he died in England.His body was brought to Halifax for burial next to his wife. The city and Province gave him the greatest state funeral of its time. The funeral procession was over a mile long, which included some 5,000 troops.Many schools, public buildings and even a mountain in the Rockies have been named after Sir Charles. As we celebrate 150 years of Confederation, it is most appropriate that we honour his memory with pride and gratitude and recognize his rightful place in the history of our country.Let's block ads!

Recounting Paul Martin's early days in Pembroke - Pembroke Daily Observer

Friday, June 2, 2017

During the conscription debate, Paul had his first exposure to politics. He accompanied his father to a speech being delivered by Prime Minister Robert Borden at the O'Brien Opera House. As he was a great admirer of Sir Wilfred Laurier, the former prime minister and current Liberal leader, Paul came to oppose conscription as well.The dispute over the Ontario Conservative government's implementation of Regulation 17, which wasdesigned to shut down French-language schools at a time when Francophones from Quebec were moving into eastern Ontario, sharpened Paul's views as a Liberal.“The dissent in Pembroke did not match the animosity felt in Ottawa but it concerned us just the same, perhaps because of the deep involvement of Bishop Lorrain,” he recounted later. “Certain people rightfully strove to extend the teaching of French in the town. At our separate school, we were taught only in English, and there was just one French teacher, despite the fact that nearly half my classmates were of French descent.”In 1918, Paul left Pembroke to attend high school at Collège Saint-Alexandre in Gatineau, Quebec. Initially he sought to enter the priesthood, however, he changed his mind during his third year and was admitted to St. Michael's College at the University of Toronto. Although his polio prevented him from participating, Paul managed the intramural hockey and intercollegiate football teams at the school. In the summer of 1921, Paul came to Pembroke to work in the mills. His experiences in the lumberyards of Pembroke helped to shape his attitudes and political philosophy including the struggles of the working man and trade unions. Sadly, it also changed his opinion of his hometown, which until this point he had viewed through a rather innocent lens.“Pembroke really belonged to five or six men who lived beside one another, sat on each other's boards, and called all the tunes,” Martin wrote later. “I became acu...

No explanation for Desmond murder-suicide, priest tells Nova Scotia funeral - Nanaimo News NOW

Friday, February 17, 2017

These attributes, no doubt, were the primary reason he went to serve in the Armed Forces in September of 2004.""He married Shanna Borden and they brought into this world a little daughter, and he provided so well for them. They were both so proud of her."The couple first met when they were in high school. Shanna Borden trained to be a hairdresser, but she later worked as a nurse at St. Martha's Regional Hospital in nearby Antigonish, N.S.The bodies of all four family members were found in the Desmond home in nearby Upper Big Tracadie, N.S.Desmond, a former member of the Second Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment, was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder after a tour in Afghanistan in 2007, and a military source later confirmed he had received treatment before he left the military and returned to Nova Scotia in July of 2015.Family members say the retired corporal also spent time at a medical clinic in Montreal last year, but they say he continued to struggle when he returned home.On his Facebook page, in which he called himself "Lionel Demon," he made it clear he was aware of his mental illness and was committed to dealing with his PTSD, and a head injury that left him with "post-concussion disorder."In one post, he said his mental-health challenges helped explain "my jealousy towards my wife and being over-controlling and (my) vulgar tongue towards my family."Family members say Desmond appeared to be coping well in recent weeks, but they say he would sometimes let loose with fits of rage and swearing, symptoms common to those suffering from PTSD.Still, relatives said Shanna Desmond and her husband were working together to deal with the illness, and they even took part in counselling over the phone. On New Year's Eve, the family gathered with relatives for a lobster dinner, during which Desmonds seemed to be at ease and enjoying themselves.But at least two relatives later said Lionel Desmond was not getting the help he needed, saying the Canadian Armed Forces did nothing for him once he left military.A day after the slain family was discovered, a relative said she couldn't understand why Lionel Desmond was recently refused treatment at the mental health unit at St. Martha's — an allegation flatly denied this week by a hospital official.Last Thursday, Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil said an investigation will look into how the province's health-care system dealt with Lionel Desmond.Michael MacDonald, The Canadian PressLet's block ads!

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...
