Morrison was born Jan. 20, 1822, in Edinburgh, Scotland.His father, a discharged sergeant of the 82nd Royal Highland Regiment, and a widower, brought the family to Upper Canada in 1830, settling in Georgina Township. Farming didn’t fit his father’s personality and, a year later, Angus’s father opened the Golden Ball Tavern. He might have been inspired by his marriage to the daughter of famous Upper Canadian bar owner John Montgomery, of Montgomery Tavern fame, where the main battle of the 1837 Rebellion took place. (Montgomery was a Barrie resident and is buried there.)Angus joined the law firm of his brother, J.C. Morrison, in 1839 as a clerk and was called to the bar in 1845. He later opened his own firm at 110 King St. W., Toronto. It would become one of the leading firms in the province.But it wasn’t even law that made Angus’s name. He was famous in Toronto for his athletic abilities, his dash, his broad chest, thick, curly hair and mutton-chop sideburns and his fashion sense. He was an avid rower and was declared champion of Toronto Bay in both 1840 and 1841 in the annual sculling races. He was also one of the city’s leading curlers – an accomplished skip with the Toronto Curling Club, taking part in all-day competitions on the frozen lake.His connections, formed through his va...
Drunk driver apologizes to friends, families of three victims: 'I am to blame' - Nanaimo News NOW Tuesday, April 04, 2017
Alec's mother, Georgina Alec, spoke in court earlier Thursday about how the sexual and physical abuse she suffered in Canada's residential school system made her a poor parent, which had a profoundly negative impact on her son.The only parenting role models she had were the priests, nuns and brothers who were supposed to care for her during the 12 years she spent at St. Mary's Indian Residential School in Mission, B.C., she said."I didn't know how to show love," she said. "I'm supposed to love my children unconditionally. At that time I didn't know how. It took me years … to learn how to be a good parent."Alec's mother, who later suffered from alcohol addiction, told the court how she and her fellow residential school students were called "stupid Indians" so frequently that she started to believe the only thing she is worthy of "is getting beat up and strapped and punched and knocked on the head and abused.""We're always told by the non-natives at home, 'Get over it. Get over it.' I'd like to see them get over something so drastic as what the residential schools put me through," she said.Alec's mother finished her testimony by apologizing to the victims' families, saying she hopes to one day have a conversation with them.Crown counsel is expected to deliver a brief reply Friday morning, after which the judge said he would reserve his decision on sentencing until April 28.— Follow @gwomand on TwitterGeordon Omand, The Canadian PressLet's block ads!

OBITUARY: Dr Robert “Bob” Oakeshott AM - Port Macquarie NewsFriday, February 17, 2017
He was active until his final month and lived a full life.He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Cathie, and five of his children – Jane, John, Harriet, Georgina and Robert, as well as 14 grandchildren, all of whom he was most proud.Dr Oakeshott’s life of service was recognised by the Council for the Order of Australia in 1996 for “service to medicine at national and international levels in the fields of rehabilitation medicine and disability, and to education.” He was appointed Associate Adjunct Professor in Medicine at Sydney University, his alma mater, in the same year.Dr Oakeshott was born in Lismore in 1930, becoming vice-captain of Lismore High School, and participating at higher levels in rugby league, rowing, and tennis. His teenage years were shadowed by the war, and deeply affected by the loss of his own father in the infamous Sandakan death marches. It was on his 15th birthday, the 27th October 1945, (well after Victory in the Pacific celebrations in mid-August 1945) that the death notice was delivered to the family door. At a time of national post-war celebration, this timing, and the loss itself, were profound.After studying medicine at Sydney University and enjoying his college years at St Andrews College, Dr Oakeshott completed his training in Sydney, and moved to Broken Hill, so as to collect the 1000 pound remo...

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. (...
