Aleta Williams, trailblazing journalist with deep church connection, dies at age 94 - TheChronicleHerald.ca

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Her writings, saved in many treasured family scrapbooks and memory boxes, are a rich tapestry of Pictou County’s social history. They record the trials and triumphs of miners’ widows, ministers of congregations, kitchen entrepreneurs, social advocates, volunteers and hard-working people just trying to stretch a dollar to feed a family – in short, all people who are unlikely to appear in our conventional history books. William’s entered the field of journalism in the days of shorthand, typewriters, carbon paper, box cameras and ticker tape but through 40 years of change, her curiosity, her empathy, her commitment to do right by the people she covered and her adherence to deadlines remained constant. Details of funeral arrangements will be announced in the near future.Let's block ads! (Why?)...

'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Then, after a brief warm up, the two teams — the Flyers and the Toronto Marlboros — lined up facing each other at centre ice. The boys on both sides removed their helmets. Some tilted their heads down. Others looked ahead, toward the other team.“It’s difficult to know what to say,” Greater Toronto Hockey League president Don West said to the boys, and those watching. Rink 3 had been cordoned off for family and players only. At the entrance, a sign denoted the space as a private event, with a few photographs of Roy in uniform.Article Continued BelowPejcinovski had been in Flyers’ system since age 7, team manager Nick Slawson told the Star this week. He called the boy “unlimited.” Players from both teams changed into jerseys bearing the letter "R" in remembrance of Roy Pejcinovski, who was killed earlier this week, before an exhibition game in Etobicoke on Sunday.  (Vince Talotta / Toronto Star)The two teams tossed their sticks into pile at centre ice — with no discernible divide between Flyers and Marlboros.  (Vince Talotta / Toronto Star)Pejcinovski was a promising prospect in next year’s Ontario Hockey League draft. “We remember him as a teammate and friend,” West said, urging the boys to “sit together, support each other, and keep playing the game.” And they did, but with a twist.

A reflective Father Bob Haggarty looks back on his time in Lillooet - Bridge River Lillooet News

Thursday, April 12, 2018

They had a dinner here and they were trying to get the support of the people so they brought in a guest speaker,” he recalls. “He was quite a memorable person – Father Athol Murray, from Notre Dame. He’d worked with so many young people and so many of his student graduates went on to the NHL. I was visiting Father Egan, who was the priest here at the time, and he told me I’d picked a good time to visit. ‘You can meet the two Murrays’ – which were Father Athol and “Ma” Murray. I used to meet her over the years and I knew her granddaughter Margie, who lived at Douglas Lake  near Merritt.” Father Bob also frequently attended the annual pilgrimages at Fountain Lake, which began in the mid-1970s.  “So I was coming to Lillooet almost every summer.” Sharing his memories of parishioners, he speaks fondly of individuals such as Sally Almstrom and Germaine Gagnon., “I admired her courage, being an elder and all bent over,” he says of Mrs. Almstrom. “I know the contribution she made and I appreciated her.” He continues, “My life was much more pleasant because Germaine Gagnon existed. She was such a help to the priests in years past, long before I got here and she continued to help to the day she died. People may not appreciate the extent to which she gave of herself. She was a great asset to me and a great blessing to the church. She kept the books for the parish. It’s nice to have complete trust in the person who looks after the finances and it’s nice to have someone who does things to perfection. Every T was crossed and every I was dotted. She had horrendous columns of figures to add and she always did it without an adding machine.” “There’s one other thing I’d like to underscore,” he said, reflecting on his time in the parish. “I’m so pleased the parish was able to give hospitality to the seniors of Lillooet by offering the use of the parish hall, which has been a mutual blessing. I liked the idea as soon as I heard about it. I consulted the parishioners and they were very receptive. There was no official contract – it’s just based on a handshake. I said to the seniors, ‘If you can’t get along with the Catholics, you’re free to leave!’” It should be noted the seniors have not gone anywhere. Originally from Alberta, Father Bob was ordained in 1971 as a priest in the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI). The Order was founded in 1816 and has had a presence in British Columbia since 1858. The apostolic Oblates focused on outreach to remote and/or wilderness areas, which B.C. was at the time of the Gold Rush. “The Oblates were there, right at the beginning of the colonization of B.C.,” adds Father Bob, who says those early priests were so young that they were described as altar boys. He can quote the early history of the Oblates in B.C. chapter and verse, but is also fascinated by Canadian military history...

A list of terrorist incidents and attacks in Canada - National Post

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Oct. 22, 2014: Parliament Hill security and police shoot and kill Michael Zehaf-Bibeau after he killed Canadian soldier Cpl. Nathan Cirillo at the National War Memorial and then stormed the Parliament Buildings.Oct. 20, 2014: Quebec police shoot and kill Martin Couture-Rouleau after he threatens an officer with a knife. Couture-Rouleau was wanted for running down warrant officer Patrice Vincent and another soldier in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu. Vincent died of his injuries. Aubrey de Grey thinks the first humans who will live to 1,000 already walk among us. But is postponing death a good thing? Tech folks are a little antsy about the whole death thing. They're putting money behind DNA 'hacking,' organ printing and tiny robots that might kill what ails you Robots and asteroids are likely threats, but we'll probably be wiped out by good, old-fashioned disease Amortized over time, it's a small price to pay for the hoped for results — the reversal of aging. And transfusions are already bestowing Methuselah-like effects Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and Times

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Humboldt later this week. https://t.co/DvpAsm2Ybw#HumboldtStrong#PutYourStickOut#XBRpic.twitter.com/h2EyHhQjrj — City of Brockville (@BrockvilleON) April 9, 2018Organizations across Ontario were paying tribute to the victims of last week’s fatal bus crash.The bus carrying the junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a semi truck in northeast Saskatchewan on Friday, killing 15 people and leaving 14 others injured.The fatalities included 10 young teammates, ranging in age from 15 to 21, and five team personnel. Like many people across the country, the Wilsons placed a hockey stick on their porch in what has become a universal tribute to the lost players.The book of condolences is the product of city staff’s collaboration with Brockville’s Irvine Funeral Home.The tragedy also hit close to home for Mike Galbraith, a funeral director at Irvine who helped coordinate the book of condolences.“As a hockey dad, as a parent, as a funeral director, I can appreciate the chaos that’s going on,” he said.“Sometimes, people need an outlet.”Signing a book of condolences is a small way of confronting the powerlessness one feels in the wake of such a tragedy, said Galbraith.“This one’s kind of near and dear to the heart,” he added.“If I had the means and the time, I would fly out there today on a plane and help them out.”The Brockville Braves plan on contributing one dollar from every ticket sold to Tuesday’s Game at the Memorial Centre to a crowdsourcing fund for the victims. Galbraith said another version of the book of condolences will be set up at the arena ahead of that game.“It will all be added to one and sent off at the end of the week,” he added.Some 30 people had signed the city hall book as of mid-afternoon Monday, as word of the tribute began slowly to spread.Some of the people signing came from out of town, including Prescott, Mallorytown, Delta and Kingston.All of the local signatures and messages will be conveyed to Humboldt city hall.Elsewhere locally, organizers of the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend used their Facebook account to post tributes to the Broncos and a link to the crowdsourcing page.Brockville Mayor David Henderson said the scope of the tragedy extends beyond the world of hockey.“I think it wa...

Appeal ends, nearly $6000 raised - Sault Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Hunter Chamberlain and their son, Bentley, died last Tuesday. Their SUV, northbound on Highway 69 near Parry Sound, crossed the centre line and collided with a transport. The SUV caught fire. Ontario Provincial Police have not released the names of the deceased pending identification by Ontario Centre of Forensic Sciences. Whitehead's best friend, Rebecca Chapman, launched a GoFundMe appeal (https://www.gofundme.com/help-support-jodey-whitehead) on Friday to help Victoria's mother, Jodey Whitehead, pay for funeral costs. Her goal was $2,000. That target was exceeded by more than 50 per cent within 24 hours with $3,186 donated by 66 contributors by 10 a.m Saturday. By Sunday afternoon, the tally grew to $5,980 from 136 donors. In an update, Chapman thanked donors and said the appeal was finished. “As per request by the family, I will be closing donations and taking the funds to them,” she said. “They decided that this is an overwhelming, but very appreciated amount of support, and that they would like me to close the fund as we have reached nearly $6,000.”Many donors offered their condolences about the trio's death. “My heart goes out to anyone impacted by this tragedy,” said Danielle Heatley. “I can't imagine the pain of losing a child and grandchild,” said MaryClaire Wood in a post. “I pray you find the strength to deal with this terrible loss.“Thanks to everyone for their generosity,” said Jonathan White...
