Respected business leader will be remembered for his energy, enthusiasm - The North Bay Nugget

Tuesday, December 27, 2016

North Bay Economic Development Commission from 1996 to 2003 and worked hard to raise funds on a yearly basis for the North Bay Regional Health Centre and One Kids Place. Minogue was president of Callander Bay Developments and Osprey Links Golf Course. Minogue also will be remembered for his business savvy. He was founder of Coldwell Banker Peter Minogue Real Estate and owner of Morland Appraisals. “Dad worked hard for what he had,” Brad Minogue said Monday. “He wasn't given anything. He built his career and his business.” Minogue also made time for the simple things in life like joining friends for an afternoon at the North Bay Golf and Country Club and Osprey Links Golf Club. Minogue was inducted into the North Bay Sports Hall of Fame in 2008 and skipped a number of winning curling teams, nearly making it to the Brier on more than one occasion. Former Ontario premier Mike Harris said he was shocked to learn of his best friend's death. “I'm very proud to call Peter my best friend,” Harris told The Nugget during a telephone interview Monday evening. “He was competitive. Whether it was during a game of marbles or ping pong, he always liked to win. He was a football and basketball star and played a great game of curling and golf.” Harris said he met Minogue while playing for opposite playground hockey teams in North Bay and became close friends in high school. “Neither one of us were amazing hockey players. Peter was the better bridge player, but I was the better fisherman,” Harris laughed. “Peter cooked the best pickerel. It was his secret recipe and that I can't share.” Minogue was husband to Barbara for 47 years, father to Brad, Becky and Alix Minogue and grandfather to Connor and Brock. A celebration of Minogue's life will take place at the Osprey Links club house on May 20. Donations in his memory can be made to the North Bay Regional Health Centre.

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa Citizen

Wednesday, 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. Clark Davey, former publisher of the Montreal Gazette, displaying a mock-up of the paper's new Sunday edition in 1988. Bill Grimshaw / The Canadian Press 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. (...
