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...

Hamilton earlier this week, but police are now waiting on the result of toxicology tests to determine cause of death. 'Heart of Gold'Deweese's obituary, published by the Coutts Funeral home in Cambridge, through the Dignity Memorial service, said in part: "Christopher Paul Deweese was given his angel wings prematurely on July 12, 2017. Christopher had touched so many of us in some small way throughout his short, yet very memorable life.Christopher's life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by him understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. His smile would bring joy and touch ones soul and his big brown eyes would melt your heart. Christopher never had to speak a word for anyone who truly knew him could see his thoughts and feel his love/pain.Although Christopher possessed strength, perseverance, and an ability to overcome incredible odds and physical challenges. With his courage he led us to believe that each day is a blessing and an opportunity to create lasting memories. Christopher had a heart of Gold and was loved dearly by many. He could spend hours playing his favorite video games. He enjoyed music, sleeping late, loved animals and eating. He loved the color black and listening to the sounds of nature. Christopher loved the outdoors especially around the campfire. His favorite shows growing up were Little Monsters, Simpsons, Family Guy but most of all Christopher loved watching wrestling with his grandfather William Deweese who past just over a year ago. Christopher will now be reunited with his beloved grandfather to share those wrestling matches again."- In Memory of Christopher Paul Deweese, Coutts Funeral Home and Cremation CentreLet's block ads!

'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto StarThursday, 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...

— 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...
