Battle weighed heavily on Sudbury-area activist, friend recalls - The Sudbury StarTuesday, April 04, 2017
She was hard to work with," he said. "She had the energy of three people, impatient, just go, go, go."The next meeting of the Defend the Benny Forest group goes 5:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Greater Sudbury Public Library's main branch on MacKenzie Street. Members will discuss Ronson-McNichol's contributions. Ontario Provincial Police charged ronson-McNichol on Monday with mischief and breach of recognizance for placing her car and a tent in the path of logging trucks. On Tuesday, she appeared in bail court at the Sudbury Courthouse and was released on her own recognizance.Ronson-McNichol's next court appearance on those charges would have been April 5.Ronson-McNichol was also headed to trial June 27 on a charge of mischief for hindering a logging truck in the same area last fall. She refused a plea bargain last November that would have included a one-year probation order because she could not live with the terms."It would be admitting the officer had a right to remove me where I stood," she explained to The Sudbury Star at the time. "I was standing on my husband's land, trying to protect the land, the bears, the other animals that live there."Ronson-McNichol planned to represent herself at the trial.The McNichols, along with Art Petahtegoose, had sought an injunction in Superior Court last spring to stop logging and spraying of defoliant in the Benny forest, but it was rejected.When the decision came out, Ronson-McNichol said the trio was disappointed, but would not give up.The McNichols and Petahtegoose want to create a 20-mile radius around Benny to preserve the forest for everyone including First Nation people.The McNichols, incidentally, operate an outdoor skills and culture program for First Nation youth - Camp Eagle Nest - in the Benny forest. Clyde McNichol, who is Anishnaabe, along with Ronson-McNichol, has claimed the area is family territory.HCarmichael@postmedia.com Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Funeral for Sudbury activist to be held Saturday - The Sudbury StarFriday, October 28, 2016
Because Dubois was such an active volunteer, he and LeBlanc worked together on a regular basis. A member of the Greater Sudbury Food Policy Council, Dubois was a strong advocate for improving food access. As a member of the board of the Social Planning Council, his experience and guidance were valued, said LeBlanc.
Dubois was volunteering as the lead community organizer for the Flour Mill Community Farm when he died.
"David was an urban homesteader and had a vision for the farm to build food skills in neighbourhood youth," said LeBlanc. After a year and a half of hard work, the pair secured a development grant, which only started in September.
"We will be continuing to develop the farm, and know his energy will continue to radiate throughout community, inspiring new leadership and actionism in others," said LeBlanc.

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. (...
