Four GoFundMe pages set up for family of Ajax murder victims - Toronto StarThursday, April 12, 2018
Friday. The final page, the DCWS Pejcinovski Family Relief Fund, was started by War Veal — according to the description, being done so on behalf of the Durham Chapter of the Widows Sons Masonic Riding Association. “A terrible, unspeakable tragedy occurred On March 14th in Ajax Ontario,” it says. “In a matter of hours (the family’s) world has been rocked in an unimaginable way.” The page, which had raised $344 of their $5,000 goal, says all donations will go directly to the family to use how they see fit, “whether it be funeral costs, therapy or education.” “This is hopefully only a start to fundraising initiatives and awareness to domestic violence and the lives it destroys,” they wrote. “Any size donation is gratefully appreciated and needed.”GoFundMe has been closely monitoring the campaigns related to the Pejcinovskis this week, spokesperson Rachel Hollis wrote in an email to the Star on Friday. “It’s not uncommon for someone to create a GoFundMe to help another individual after a news report,” she explained. “We are monitoring all campaigns set up to support the family and our team is reviewing all campaigns to ensure the funds reach the Pejcinovski family directly.”Hollis identified the Roy Pejcinovski Family Fund and Pejcinovski Family Relief as “actively” raising funds, and said their team would work with those campaign organizers to safely deliver the funds to the family. “For the additional campaigns that have been set up, we will work with the organizers to ensure the funds reach the Pejcinovski family,” she added. “When a campaign is created on behalf of another individual, the funds are held by our team and released only to the person named as the beneficiary of the campaign. If a campaign organizer has a direct, personal connection to the beneficiary, then in some instances the campaign organizer may withdraw the funds to provide directly to the beneficiary.”If questions arise, Hollis says GoFundMe’s Trust & Safety team would hold the funds unless the benficiary was “verified to our satisfaction.” “This layer of protection makes sure that the funds go only into the right hands,” she said.GoFundMe doesn’t investigate the claims stated by each campaign organizer, according to their website. “Rather, we provide visitors with the tools to make an informed decision as to who they choose to support. While GoFundMe and its payment partners do provide a number of safeguards to deter fraud, we must insist that visitors follow the advice stated on each and every campaign: ‘Only donate to people you personally know & trust.’”Let's block ads!

Body of missing Oshawa father Cameron Bailie found in Lake Ontario - Toronto StarWednesday, July 05, 2017
In terms of the exact cause of death we are still working with the coroner and the medical experts to determine what that was,” said Dave Selby, a spokesperson with Durham Region police.Bailie’s sister Amanda Gerrard said there is no family medical history to suggest any natural causes for his death. So while Bailie has been found, information about how he died means “it’s a waiting game again,” she said.Much of the search efforts into Bailie’s whereabouts focused around the park and Lake Ontario along the Oshawa shoreline, about 3.8 km from his home.“Our suspicions were that he was in the water,” said Glen Turpin, co-ordinator for the Ontario Volunteer Emergency Response Team (OVERT). The team performed two water searches by boat, travelling from Darlington to Whitby, using “very limited technology,” including sonar.Bailie’s body was found in an area of the lake that had already been heavily searched but the “incredible amount of dynamics involved,” from drastic changes in temperature over the last two seasons to strong currents, would impact those efforts, Turpin said.Bailie’s shoes were previously found within the park that borders the area where the body was found. They were found in separate locations, which the family found unusual.Bailie had no history of mental illness. Gerrard saw him the night before he was last seen and said all appeared to be well.“There was nothing out of the ordinary,” she said in a March interview. “I’m a nurse. I...
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. (...
