Sam Panopoulos, Canadian inventor of Hawaiian pizza, dies at 82 - CBC.caWednesday, July 05, 2017
Canada aboard a boat, later operating several restaurants with brothers Elias and Nikitas Panopoulos.After arriving in Halifax in 1954, he moved to Sudbury, then Elliot Lake, Ont., where he worked in the mines. He later moved to Chatham, Ont., and then finally made London his permanent home.Panopoulos is pictured in the Satellite, a restaurant he owned with his brothers in Chatham, Ont. (Panopoulos family)It was Panopoulos's culinary inquisitiveness that put him on the gastronomic map.In a 2015 interview with the Atlas Obscura, Panopoulos recalled how he became fascinated with pizza during a boat stop in Naples, but that the Italian staple had a sort of mysticism in Canada.'Even Toronto didn't know anything about pizza in those days.'- Sam Panopoulos, Hawaiian pizza creator"Pizza wasn't known at all, actually," Panopoulos told the Atlas Obscura. "Even Toronto didn't know anything about pizza in those days. The only place you could have pizza was in Detroit."Puzzled about pizza's lack of popularity, Panopoulos ended up in Windsor and after watching how chefs in the southern Ontario city made their pies, he started experimenting at the brothers' Satellite restaurant in Chatham.Pizza topped with pineapple and ham has become a staple of pizza menus around the world. (The Canadian Press)No choices on your pizza"The pizza in those days was three things: dough, sauce, cheese, and mushroom, bacon, or pepperoni. That was it. You had no choices; you could get one of the three [toppings] or more of them together," the online article says.In 1962, he threw pieces of pineapple on top along with bits of ham and bacon, thinking that the sweet and savory mix would tantalize tastebuds.This photo of Panopoulos appeared on his online obituary.His culinary instincts eventually bore fruit — his creation became a staple of pizza menus the world over, though it did have a healthy portion of critics.Iceland's President Guoni Johannesson caused an online frenzy in February after telling schoolchildren that pineapple did not belo...

Marie, North Bay,” Wirta said. “But if someone reaches out we’re not going to say no."If a person has anyone they can already go to, Wirta stressed for those resources to be used.“Let them do due diligence, and let them be there now because they’ve been there all along,” Wirta said. “If you have a lawyer, yeah, let them do their job, but we’re still here.”Wirta is hoping her type of business takes off in other markets.“Oftentimes with an aging demographic, the documentation is overwhelming,” Wirta said. “We only know what we need to know in life. If you haven’t lost someone then sometimes you don’t know where to start. That’s that missing link I found (there to be) in Sudbury. We’re also finding now that we’re getting dialogue coming in from all across Ontario, saying if this can work in Northern Ontario, then why can’t it work here?”The business can be reached by phone at 705-562-6071, or 705-589-2131, or by email at email@example.com.Dragonfly Advisory Services’ website can be found at dragonflyadvisoryservices.ca.Twitter: @keith_dempseyLet's block ads!

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. (...
