Stony Plain lines 53 Street with hockey sticks for Broncos' Parker Tobin funeral - Edmonton Journal

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Tobin sewed by the grandmother of a friend was draped over it partway through the service, which was attended by hundreds of people.Tobin grew up in Stony Plain and played in nearby Spruce Grove and Drayton Valley before being traded to the Broncos. Throughout the week, tributes have been pouring in for a young man who loved hockey, supported his teammates and had a great sense of humour. Homes along 53 Avenue in Stony Plain were adorned with hockey sticks and ribbons near the Centennial Arena where a funeral was held for Humboldt Broncos goalie Parker Tobin. Shaughn Butts / Postmedia Tobin attended Forest Green School, Stony Plain Central School and was in the 2017 graduating class at Memorial Composite High School, which he attended school for parts of the year while pursuing his competitive hockey career, the Parkland School Division said on its website.While he excelled in athletics and was known for his sense of humour, his dedication and drive was equally apparent in his academic life through his advanced placement courses.Helping out with homework was something Tobin did frequently both in school and with teammates. It earned him a nickname on the bus with his fellow hockey players as "Teacher Tobin," Brandon Ewanchyshyn, Tobin's goalie partner, told the funeral Sunday.Ewanchyshyn - who played hockey, floor ball and other sports with Tobin - said his friend knew how to make light out of dark situations and was famous for his "one-line chirps.""I love you forever, Parker," he said while speaking at the funeral.While many players would listen to music, Tobin would listen to financial podcasts and was considering a career either in business or medicine.Tobin was originally thought to have survived the Broncos' bus collision last week, which killed 16 people. But a Saskatchewan coroner later confirmed he had been misidentified.estolte@postmedia.comtwitter.com/estoltecgriwkowsky@postmedia.comTwitter.com/CGriwkowsky Today's Top Three: Speed limits on residential roads; super-sized jail questioned;...

Park players remember fallen MacEwan teammate - Sherwood Park News

Saturday, March 02, 2019

I've ever met."Lamothe, of Calling Lake, Alta., was a student in the bachelor of science program at MacEwan and in his third year with the Griffins. He also played with the Drayton Valley Thunder of the Alberta Junior Hockey League (2013-2014), the Opaskwayak Cree Nation Blizzard of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League (2013-2015) and the La Ronge Ice Wolves of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (2015-2016).Lamothe was a graduate of the Vimy Ridge Academy and also played for the Edmonton South Side Athletic Club. The official cause of death has not been released."He was a real salt-of-the-earth guy," said Griffins forward and another Sherwood Park product Nolan Yaremchuk, 25. "He really thought about other people before he thought about himself. I think that Nakehko was so special in so many different ways. For one, he was so funny, he had a charismatic personality, and he was always wanting to come to the rink to get better. His drive for hockey was something I'd never seen before. He loved playing hockey." Grant MacEwan Griffins hockey player and Sherwood Park product Cam Gotaas speaks about the death of teammate Nakehko Lamothe. Greg Southam/Postmedia Network Part Dene and part Cree, Lamothe was a role model for Indigenous youth. He grew up on the Bigstone Cree Nation at Calling Lake and helped run youth hockey programs. Last February, Lamothe invited youth from his community to spend a day with him at MacEwan."He was an incredible teammate and he was very well liked in the dressing room," Griffins head coach Mike Ringrose, a former player for the Sherwood Park Crusaders, said. "He was infectious in terms of his attitude and his work ethic. He was easily the fittest player on our team. Anytime we did any type of fitness competition, he was the one that always came out on top and took care of his body and his diet. He was a leader for us in that regard. On the ice, he was extremely competitive, worked exceptionally hard and was hard to play against. The type of guy you were certainly happy to have on your team and you didn't want to see on the other side."According to teammates...

Evansburg around 5:15 p.m. Thursday, an attempt to stop the vehicle he was driving was unsuccessful, leading to a chase involving RCMP members from Evansburg, Stony Plain, Spruce Grove, Edson, and Drayton Valley.The man led police back and forth multiple times on Highway 16 between Evansburg and Entwistle, RCMP said.The driver managed to avoid multiple spike belts deployed by RCMP but police successfully deflated the fleeing vehicle’s tires near Nojack as it was travelling east.The vehicle rolled eastbound for a time before it came to a stop on Highway 16 near Highway 22.At that point gunfire was exchanged, killing the driver, police said. He was the lone occupant of the vehicle.Investigators were still at the scene Friday, although no further details of Thursday’s events have been released.The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team, the province’s independent police watchdog that investigates police-related shootings and deaths, has also been called in to investigate.The El-Dib family expressed their appreciation to the Calgary Police Service and the community.“We just know that we’re going to be at peace and we’re going to move on from this,” Racha El-Dib said.A GoFundMe campaign created in Nadia’s name has raised $34,00o in two days, exceeding the $30,000 goal.

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. (...
