Four GoFundMe pages set up for family of Ajax murder victims - Toronto StarThursday, April 12, 2018
Four GoFundMe accounts are actively raising funds for an Ajax family, in the wake of a harrowing triple-homicide on Wednesday that took the lives of 39-year-old Krassimira Pejcinovski, her 13-year-old daughter Venallia and her 15-year-old son Roy. Police say the family was killed by Cory Fenn — who they believe was in a relationship with Krassimira. He was not the children’s father. Their father is now caring for his sole surviving child, a daughter named Victoria who was out of the house when the attack happened. The largest fundraising page, called the Pejcinovski Family Relief, was set up by Daytona Moyes to cover expenses related to the victims. “The remaining proceeds will cover therapies for the remaining family, a leave of absence for the father since he will not be returning to work for quite awhile, and hopefully tuition for the daughter,” their page description reads. As of Friday at 2:51 p.m, the campaign had amassed $52,037 of its $100,000 goal. Below, messages of support have amassed from friends and strangers alike.“Dear Victoria, it is with a heavy heart t...

Natalie Portman on becoming Jackie O: 'Don't call her tragic' - Orillia Packet & TimesWednesday, December 07, 2016
What is it like holding your husband’s exploded head on your lap? For seven minutes trying to get to the hospital?
“So we filmed that and it was harrowing. Who can even imagine it? It’s awful, the worst possible thing that could ever happen. And it was like the coldest day when we shot it. We were on this highway that they had closed down so we could go in this open car, and the poor actor who was playing Clint the security guy was harnessed to the speeding car (ex-Secret Service agent Clint Hill remains the only living member of the motorcade). So it was physically difficult and emotionally unimaginable.”
Smoothing out the rough patches was the fact that many cast-members were personal friends of Portman’s – including Greta Gerwig, who plays Jackie’s social secretary Nancy Tuckerman, Peter Sarsgaard, who is Robert Kennedy Jr. and John Hurt who was cast as an unnamed Kennedy family priest.
“All the actors are people I’ve know for a long time,” Portman says. “I’d worked with Peter before (in Garden State). I worked with Greta before (in the romantic comedy No Strings Attached). John Hurt. Billy (Crudup) I’d known for a really long time even though we’d never worked together.
“In terms of what it brings, I thought that was helpful because they were largely playing people who were close to her.
“And Greta’s actually my friend. So there’s a difference when she hugs me to console me. Having your girlfriend hold you is different than somewhat you just met. It allows for a certain level of intimacy. So we already had this rapport. We didn’t have to start from scratch.”
Jackie opens in select cities Friday, Dec. 9. It will expand to other cities next month.
STARS WHO HAVE PLAYED JACKIE KENNEDY
A glamorous, iconic First Lady, whose private life was an endless guessing game. It’s practically a blank slate for an actress, which is why so many have taken on the role of Jackie Kennedy.
As we await the release of Jackie, with Natalie Portman playing the just-widowed First Lady in the days after Dallas, here are others who’ve gone full Bouvier-Kennedy-Onassis.
JACQUELINE BISSET – TWICE: Okay, in the 1978 movie The Greek Tycoon, she played someone named Liz Cassidy, who was a glam, widowed former First Lady who marries a, um, Greek Tycoon. So yeah, complete fiction. She played Jackie again, by name this time, in the 2003 Fox TV movie America’s Prince: The John F. Kennedy Jr. Story.
JACLYN SMITH: Clearly, when playing Jacqueline, it helps to be named Jacqueline/Jaclyn. The ex-Charlie’s Angel served notice she was more than just a pretty crime-solving face by starring in 1981’s TV movie Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, earning a Golden Globe nom.
KATIE HOLMES: The ex-Mrs. Cruise found herself in the center of controversy playing Jackie (opposite Greg Kinnear as JFK) in a 2011 mini-series that was excoriated before it even filmed (based on leaked scripts). It was dropped by the U.S. History Channel (though it aired on History Canada). Despite all that, Holmes is reprising the role in a sequ...
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. (...
