Mitch Owens, former mayor of Gloucester, dead at 95 - CBC.ca

Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Mitch Owens, a municipal politician who served as mayor of the former municipality of Gloucester, has died at the age of 95. "His sharp mind, incredible storytelling, irreverent sense of humour, and easy laugh stayed with us to the end," his obituary said. ?Owens entered municipal politics in 1966 after retiring from the RCMP following a 20-year career, according to his obituary. Over 25 years he served as councillor, deputy reeve and mayor. In 1991, at the age of 70, he retired from municipal politics, splitting his time between a vacation home in Florida and his home on Mitch Owens Road, which was named after him by an order of council. Gloucester was amalgamated into the City of Ottawa in 2001. Owens died Thursday. Visitation will be held at McEvoy-Shields Funeral Home on Hunt Club Road from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday. His funeral mass will be held Tuesday at 11 a.m. at Our Lady of the Visitation Church in south Gloucester.  The flags at the Gloucester South Community Centre will be lowered to half-mast from sunrise to sunset on Tuesday for his funeral, the city anno...

Former Gloucester Mayor Mitch Owens dies at 95 | Ottawa & Region ... - Ottawa Sun

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

The robust and warm former mayor, councillor and reeve of Gloucester has died.  Mitch Owens, 95, held public office in what was then the City of Gloucester for over twenty years, but only after leading a "colourful" life said former Ottawa mayor Jim Durrell.  "He was very wise, because he had done stuff," said Durrell, who remembered fondly conversations and professional advice the much-older mayor offered in the 80s. "One can buy intelligence. But you cannot buy wisdom." Owens was born in 1921 in the small farming community of Hazelridge, Manitoba, which he left as a teenager during the Great Depression to "ride the rails," according to a notice placed by his family. He took on several jobs across the country — from short order cook, drugstore clerk to lumberjack in Northern Ontario — before enlisting with the RCMP in 1942.  More travelling came with his 21 years in the force, including three years stationed at Pond Inlet on Baffin Island, where he "developed a life-long affection for the land and for the Inuit peoples," his family said.

11-year-old Riya Rajkumar remembered as a dreamer - CTV News Windsor

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Last Updated Wednesday, February 20, 2019 7:05PM EST BRAMPTON, Ont. -- An 11-year-old girl allegedly killed by her father in southern Ontario was a dreamer, a dancer and a singer who "always saw the good in every situation." It was standing room only at an Etobicoke funeral home as friends and family of Rajkumar gathered on Wednesday. In a eulogy delivered during the Hindu service, which was held at the Lotus Funeral and Cremation Centre on Wednesday morning, Riya was described as a "positive child" who loved life and "saw the good in every situation." On Tuesday night, about 100 mourners gathered to listen to speeches, poems and songs as the community remembered Riya Rajkumar in Brampton, Ont. "My daughter Riya was taken from me too early," Priya Ramdin, who did not attend the vigil, said in a statement read by Peel police Deputy Chief Chris McCord. "She never liked to be negative and always saw the good in every situation. If I'm ever upset, she would say 'Mama, don't be sad, look at the positives."' The day Riya died -- Valentine's Day -- was also her and her mother's birthdays. "Early that day, we went to do our nails and her choice of colour was red," Ramdin said. "She was so excited for her birthday, looking forward to having dinner later that evening. Never did I think that my daughter woul...

'A launching pad to start over': Three women find new lives with support of Kingston Interval House - The Kingston Whig-Standard

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Australia.She described their life Down Under as "very comfortable," and admitted their new one in Kingston was a significant transition. She wants to work, but she's found that Ontario's social assistance has made it next to impossible. She said the problem is that if you earn more than $500 a month, the province starts taxing it dollar-for-dollar up to 50 per cent. After 50 per cent, a person loses social assistance and any benefits, she said."It makes it frightening. I know why people don't want to get off of it," Wiwchar said."I went to an employment agency and was told basically I'm unemployable to them … I went home and I cried. How am I unemployable? I worked as a medic, as a makeup artist, I managed retail, and I have office training."Kerry is also on disability due to severe arthritis and is diagnosed bipolar. Her life has not been an easy one. In the winter of 2016 she says police recommended she reach out to Interval House because her ex-boyfriend, who constantly assaulted and stole from Kerry, had been released on parole and hadn't attended his halfway house."He just came and went as he pleased," Kerry said of her relationship with the man. "His whole family for six years just totally took over my life … he would inject me [with hydromorphone] while I was sleeping."At one point, she said, he kept her overdosed for three days so that he could steal her medications. Her 10-year-old son and dog at the time waited for her to wake."My son just laid with me," Kerry said. "He should have called an ambulance but he was afraid he'd be taken away."Taking her medications left her mentally unstable and unable to fully care for herself. Eventually it hospitalized her for five months, forcing Family and Children's Services of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington to take her preteen son away.Kerry was once a successful medical secretary. She says she was good at her job, but she was addicted to crack cocaine. She was introduced to the drug by another former partner who was also abusive.When she learned that her former partner was being released and was on the run, she was scared that he'd kill her. She called Interval House, stayed in the shelter for six months, and then lived in one of Robin's Hope's accessible units for nearly a year and a half.Kerry has been clean for three and a half years and gives back to Interval House by running painting classes at Robin's Hope. Kerry has also done her best to separate herself from destructive people, and while her sister has custody of her son, she said that relationship is becoming stronger every visit.Kerry explains you have to want to get better."I wanted to do the programs. You don't realize about how naive you are about red flags [in relationships] and boundaries," Kerry said. "I didn't realize how much of a sucker I felt I was, but also how mentally unhealthy I felt that I was to let someone control my mind like that. Call you stupid, make you feel less than."Making Claire feel she was "less than" was her former spouse's strategy to control her. A highly educated woman with a doctorate, Claire was often invited to speak at conferences around the wo...
