Region's first privately run crematorium to open in Kitchener - TheRecord.comSaturday, March 02, 2019
Bhardwaj is confident there is room for three crematoria in the region.
"We haven't been open yet, but we're already getting multiple calls a week" from families in Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge, he said. Many families from the region travel to Etobicoke, where he owns the Lotus Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, which also has a large Asian clientele.
In Ontario, cremations rates have steadily risen over the past couple of decades. In 2017, the cremation rate in Ontario was between 60 and 70 per cent, according to the Cremation Association of North America.
People are choosing cremations for a number of reasons, Bradshaw said. First, it's less expensive than a traditional funeral and burial.

Deadly house fire in Cambridge ruled accidental - CTV NewsThursday, April 12, 2018
A house fire in Cambridge that left one man dead may have started when food was left unattended while cooking in the home’s kitchen.
The cause of last week’s fire on Queen Street East has not been officially determined, but the Office of the Fire Marshal says it is considered accidental and unattended cooking is the leading theory.
Rob Briere, 32, was killed in the fire. He lived in the home’s basement apartment, according to people who knew him, and was good friends with homeowner John Orth.
Orth was able to get himself, his wife and their daughter out of the house unharmed. After that, sister-in-law Darlene Keating says, Orth’s thoughts immediately turned to his friend in the basement.
“From what I understood, the windows exploded (and) he was unable to get his friend out,” Keating said Tuesday.
“He’s sad and upset, and wishes he could have done more.”
In the five days since the fire, there has been a significant amount of community support for Briere and the Orth family.
Two fundraisers have...

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. (...
