That was a horrendous, horrendous crime that he committed against those children," she said."Those children are suffering a life sentence."Six years after her picture of Snook was shattered, Murphy still finds it difficult to trust people who are working with children or to believe they won't do the same harm."He hurt a whole community, not just 18 children."Snook was eligible for parole in JuneCorrectional Service Canada would not confirm Snook's temporary absence from prison, citing privacy concerns."The Privacy Act prevents me from discussing the specifics of an offender's case," Correctional Service Canada spokesperson Lucinda Fraser wrote in an emailed statement.The institutional head of a prison has the power to grant an escorted temporary absence up to five days in duration, according to Correctional Service Canada.Unescorted temporary absences require a Parole Board of Canada hearing."If this offender applied for an unescorted temporary absence the Parole Board would schedule a hearing and any registered victims would be notified of the application, provided an opportunity to submit a statement and be able to attend the hearing," spokesperson Heather Byron wrote in an emailed statement.Snook would have been eligible for full parole this June, but he waived his right to "a legislated full parole review," Byron wrote.His next review for full parole is scheduled for April 2024.Let's block ads!

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa CitizenWednesday, March 27, 2019
Gazette, who arrived there as an arts reporter in 1984, a year into Davey's tenure as publisher. "You can see that in the incredible role he played in founding the Michener Awards Foundation and fostering great journalism in Canada."The fact that he was managing editor of the Globe and Mail and publisher in Ottawa, Montreal and Vancouver shows his versatility and his great track record. When he was at a news organization, things got better."Russ Mills, whose two tours of duty as publisher of the Ottawa Citizen sandwiched Davey's, described Davey as "a legendary figure" in journalism, whose breadth of experience made his counsel regularly sought by other publishers and editors.Davey followed the news closely, right up to the end. According to Mills, Davey attended weekly round-table lunches at the Rideau Club, and at last week's, for example, was active and up-to-date discussing the SNC-Lavalin file.Davey was born in 1928 in Chatham, Ont. His career might have taken a completely different arc had his poor vision not kept him from attending Royal Roads Military College in B.C. 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 a...
Convoy evokes Canadian pride in North Bay - Vermilion StandardWednesday, March 27, 2019
Alberta to the East Coast – the Energy East pipeline – while others called for the death of a federal carbon tax.The many diverse messages have been gathering support wherever the convoy has gone, Carritt said."It's just incredible to see all the support we have," he said. "the farther we go into Ontario, the greater support we see."We are trying to take back our country from a government that is not listening."And it is in the government's own interest to listen to the message they are bringing, Carritt said."We have developed a strong voice. I don't think they can help but listen."

Chris Edwards travelled from Orillia to take part in the rally, sharing his message about "being Canadian" and helping Alberta.That oil-rich province, he said, is being mistreated by the federal government. He raised the prospect of Alberta opting out of Canada, and "if Alberta leaves, what will happen to Canada?"His son, Seth, 14, agreed, saying that if Canadians don't pull together, "we will not let Justin Trudeau f*** up our country."I absolutely hate 99 per cent of his policies."We need a new government. Justin Trudeau is incompetent. He's spending money all in the wrong place."Seth Edwards, originally from England, said that country is descending into "a third world country," and everything the British government did wrong "Justin Trudeau is doing."It's sad to me. I love...

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. (...
