'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

Fenn, 29, has been charged with three counts of second degree murder.When boys of the Don Mills Flyers bantam AAA team left the change rooms and stepped onto the ice at Canlan Ice Sports centre in Etobicoke, Sunday afternoon, they did so to absolute silence. That quiet slowly broke into applause from onlookers. 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 remem...

Don Bosco school closing at end of June - Toronto Sun

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

The Etobicoke high school where late Mayor Rob Ford used to coach football for over a decade is closing its doors for good on June 30, a victim of low enrollment.But Don Bosco Catholic Secondary School is going out big next Saturday with an onsite reunion of about 1,000 alumnus, teachers, administrators and other staff over the last 39 years, from 1978 to 2017. The event will even include a mass by former graduate and ordained priest Damir Stojic who is travelling from Croatia to be there.“If you’ve ever known anyone from this school, we’re a whole different breed,” said Eva Lerant, the chairperson of the Don Bosco Final Farewell Reunion Committee and a 1987 graduate.“It’s a family. Not a school. (Like) our patron saint, Don Bosco, we’re based on religion and kindness.”Rob’s big brother Doug Ford says “it’s a shame” the school is closing for many reasons including its connection to his younger sibling who passed away from cancer in 2014.“We’re very disappointed,” said Ford. “As much as peo...

Beloved matriarch of the Thomson family - The Globe and Mail

Friday, June 2, 2017

Evelyn Mary Ellis. She inherited her love of music from her father, a violinist, and her beauty from her mother. Born on July 27, 1930, she grew up in what is now Etobicoke, a suburb within Toronto, attended Vaughan Road Collegiate and studied piano at the Royal Conservatory of Music, where she earned an ARCT diploma. She also embarked on a successful career as a model and a beauty queen. Among other accolades, she was crowned queen at an engineering students ball at the University of Toronto in February, 1951, and at the Ontario Society of Photographers gala in Niagara Falls in May, 1955.Newspaper pictures of her from the early 1950s show a blue-eyed blonde with a dazzling smile. That was Mr. Thomson’s first impression of his future wife, as he later recounted in an article in Globe Magazine from March 11, 1967.“I saw her picture in an Eaton’s fashion display in one of the papers,” he said. “Must be some fancy New York doll,” he concluded, but then he read that she “was a model right here in Toronto.”He sought her out with the same determination he would later exercise as he collected Old Masters and his beloved Krieghoffs. “A friend from Eaton’s arranged a lunch date, and we went from there,” he recalled.The couple was married in a simple ceremony at the groom’s home in Port Credit, Ont., on June 13, 1956. The bride wore a powder-blue silk bouffant-style dress with a simple pearl necklace and carried a small bouquet. Her only attendant was her sister, Beverly.The Thomsons spent the early years of their marriage in Toronto, where he worked as president and chairman of Thomson newspapers, the chain of small-town dailies and radio stations that his father, Roy Thomson, later Baron Thomson of Fleet, had acquired beginning in the 1930s. All three of the Thomsons’ children were born in Toronto, David in 1957, Taylor in 1959 and Peter in 1965.Family life changed in the mid-1960s, after Mrs. Thomson’s father-in-law made a fortune in North Sea oil, was granted a hereditary peerage and acquired The Times of London. By then, he was ready to retire, or at least to slow down, and so his son, Ken, moved to London with his family to run the British operations.“I think it will be quite a challenge living on this side,” Mrs. Thomson told a Globe correspondent in London in October, 1966, while on a house-hunting trip for her family. “Social life in Canada, as you know, is very informal and I imagine it will be much different here,” she said. “Of course, we are looking forward to visiting Europe. I think it will be very exciting.”After Roy Thomson’s death from a stroke in 1976, Ken Thomson began shifting the focus of the Thomson empire to North America. Back in Toronto, Mrs. Thomson did not take an active role in running the media conglomerate, which her husband expanded and transformed, but she shared her husband’s love of dogs, supported his fascination with visual arts and collecting and was his stalwart companion.David Binet, CEO of Woodbridge, the Thomson family holding company, recalled how Mrs. Thomson sparkled at social events. “She always seemed to be in a Chanel suit, and looked stunning even into her 80s,” he said.When Mr. Thomson died suddenly of a heart attack in 2006, she handled the loss of her husband, after 50 years of marriage, with “grace and dignity,” according to her long-time friend Gwen Whittall.By then, Mrs. Thomson was already suffering memory lapses, Ms. Whittall said. Mrs. Thomson had “the most dazzling smile and was a warm, affectionate, supportive and loyal friend,” she added.Susan Doherty Hannaford met Mrs. Thomson in 2005 when both were members of the RCM’s board. The two women shared a love of music and art and worked together on fundraisers including a gala for the 250th anniversary of Mozart’s birth.Mrs. Thomson was no longer driving, so Ms. Doherty Hannaford was behind the wheel for theatrical excursions to the Stratford Festival and escapades to music halls and...

'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

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. The two teams tossed their sticks into pile at centre ice — with no discernible divide between Flyers and Marlboros. Players picked sticks at random, shuffling them like a deck of cards into two new teams.They then peeled their rival jerseys and put on new ones, black or white with a capital “R,” for Roy, in burgundy. The colour in the boys’ socks — orange and black for the Flye...

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...

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...
