Christie Blatchford: Court challenge over elderly man's will may be sign of things to come - National Post

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

Vloyiannitis was emotionally upset and vulnerable.He had also been dependent for years on prescription medication, including morphine, for chronic pain.And since moving from Toronto to Brighton, Ont., in 2009, he was also away from his relatives there. When his sister and her son tried to arrange visits, “they were frustrated” by the Crosses, who allegedly told relatives, “Don’t come; he doesn’t want visitors.”Not only did Vloyiannitis not have the emotional wherewithal or capacity to know what he was signing, Birnboim said, there was also “overwhelming abuse of this vulnerability” by the Crosses.He even missed his wife’s funeral, Birnboim said, though he was emotionally distraught and left weeping by the loss of his partner of 36 years.Central to the issue of whether Vloyiannitis had what’s called “the testamentary capacity” to sign the will and powers of attorney or whether the Crosses “exercised undue influence” upon him was the advice he purportedly received from a local lawyer, Daniel Thompson.Thompson isn’t a party to the trial, but a witness.Birnboim told the judge that the issue is that while the court may usually be “comforted” that an elderly person in such a situation has a lawyer, that may not hold true if the lawyer didn’t look for “red flags” that might tell him if the person was being improperly influenced.This case is replete with suspicious circumstances … This case should be a real concern to the courtThompson has yet to testify. Though he was sworn in on Tuesday, legal issues delayed the start of his evidence.In will cases, there’s a doctrine of what’s called “suspicious circumstances”: It means, are there reasons to examine the disputed will with extra care?The legal test, Birnboim said, is “is there some evidence of suspicious circumstances? This case is replete with suspicious circumstances … This case should be a real concern to the court.”Vloyiannitis was a Greek immigrant who came to Canada, first working on Great Lakes ships, then as a cab driver. His late wife had moved to Brighton in 2004, and Vloyiannitis commuted between the two places for several years before moving to live there full time.The relationship with the Crosses began when Pam Cross began working for Marjorie Vloyiannitis, first as a housekeeper, then as a caregiver after she fell ill.The issues in the trial may become more common in the next decade, as Canada continues to grey, with the 2016 census showing that for the first time, there are more people 65 years and older than those under 14. And, with more seniors remaining in their homes, more of them may be reliant upon caregivers.The trial continues.• Email: Twitter: blatchkiki Let's block ads! (Why?)...

'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. — 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...

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...
