Funeral Friday for sportswear firm founder - Brantford ExpositorSaturday, March 02, 2019
When the building burned down, the business was moved to the family's home in Falkland. A local and national supplier of textiles, sporting goods and uniforms, Darby Sportswear is now at 100 Dundas St. E. in Paris and celebrating its 50th anniversary. Mr. Sevier is also the founder of the Falkland Gamebird and Fish Hatchery, which he created on the site of a former gravel pit. The hatchery, now closed, raised rainbow trout, small and large mouth bass and pheasants for stocking, conservation, consumption and recreation. Mr. Sevier is survived by wife, Karen, and children, Tommy, Becky, Margaret, Shawn, Andy and Jessie. He has 10 grandchildren. Andy Sevier noted that the hatchery offered a program called Fish'n Friends. "It was a catered event for individuals with special needs," he said. "It gave them the opportunity to experience fishing." He said his father loved collectible cars, especially Corvettes. "He loved working on the cars that he owned, as well as restoring older ones." Mr. Sevier was a regular at the Cruise Night car shows held at Johnny Be Good Diner in Paris. A former member of the Kinsmen Club of Brantford, Mr. Sevier enjoyed spending time with friends at a hunting lodge and restoring antique tube radios. "He was a hard worker, the kind of man who always liked to keep busy," Andy Sevier said. "When he wasn't busy, he'd sit on the back porch overlooking the (Falkland) property and reminisce about what it looked like before he put in all that work." Andy Sevier said his father had a big heart and made sure everyone at work and in his personal life felt appreciated. "One thing I'll always remember is one of his ...
Families 'devastated' after graves desecrated by cemetery staff - CBC.caWednesday, August 02, 2017
A grave at Forest Lawn Cemetery in London, Ont. that's been partially covered with mud in the shape of tire from what families say is a lawn tractor that's been damaging a number of graves on the Dundas Street and Clarke Road property. (Katie Dean/Facebook)"I too own a plot out there," she said, noting her family has been doing business with Forest Lawn since the 1970s. "After my daughter died my mother bought me a plot and now I don't even want it.""Everybody in our city is going to die, somebody they love is going to die" she said. "You want to bury them some place where you can feel peaceful, that the plot is going to be taken care of, and for them to roll over those plots and damage them with tractors is just unacceptable." Company response"The damage to any of the monuments is very unfortunate," Dustin Wright, the spokesman for Abor Memorial, the company that owns Forest Lawn Funeral Home and Cemetary in London, told CBC News Friday. "With each of these situations, whenever the families have brought it to our attention, we have immediately addressed it.""In all of these cases, we want to do right for the families and we believe we do this every day," Wright said."So if ever there's a situation where a family member feels as though they are not receiving the kind of response, empathy, treatment they want, so we can address it right away. It is definitely not the feeling we want them to have." If families still aren't satisfied, they can also contact the Bereavement Authority of Ontario, the provincial regulator in charge of Ontario's death industry. Let's block ads! (Why?)...
Egerton Ryerson doesn't deserve an anti-Indigenous label - The Globe and MailWednesday, August 02, 2017
As his educational model, he favoured the respected Hofwyl School for the Poor near Berne, Switzerland.Jones and Ryerson were true friends, perhaps best described as “blood brothers.” Toronto’s Dundas Square borders Victoria Street. The site ofRyerson’s home 150 years ago is located toward the eastern end of the urban park. Its actual site is now under Dundas Street East.Ryerson welcomed Mr. Jones and his wife to stay with his family for a month in the spring of 1856 while Ryerson sought the best medical advice to restore Jones’s health. After the attempt to find a cure failed, Jones returned to his home in Brantford, where he died two weeks later. As Jones had requested while he stayed at the Ryerson’s that spring, Ryerson gave the eulogy at his funeral on July 1, 1856.To describe Egerton Ryerson, or Chechalk as the Mississauga called him, as anti-Indigenous misses the mark.

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. (...
