Gordon Melvin Leonard, 1931-2017 - Estevan MercuryThursday, December 14, 2017

He attended Britannia School along with his older brother Clifford and his younger sister Phyllis. Gordon met Joyce Pederson, a young new teacher at Britannia School in 1947 and the two were married in 1950.

An autopsy revealed she had been sexually assaulted and smothered.Despite the fact there were more than 5,100 tips lodged and 400 were suspects interviewed, the case went unsolved for a decade, further tormenting the family.
Corinne “Punky” Gustavson was abducted and murdered in Sept. 1992 by Clifford Sleigh. This year marks the 25th year anniversary of her death.Finally, first-degree murder charges were laid against Sleigh, the case cracked thanks to advances in DNA technology. On May 27, 2005, the 42-year-old was handed a life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years. “It never gets any easier,” Vallette said Tuesday on the eve of the 25th anniversary.“It’s always hard coming into this anniversary or Christmas or her birthday. This will be with us for the rest of our lives.”Vallette said her daughter’s remains were moved about two years ago from Edmonton’s Evergreen Funeral Home and Cemetery to a cemetery in the tiny town of Castor in 2015, about 140 km east of Red Deer.“I wish she was still (in Edmonton),...

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. (...
