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 7, 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...
Writer remembered for love of history - Simcoe ReformerFriday, October 28, 2016
Heronwood Enterprises. She wrote nearly 3,000 articles for magazines and newspapers in Canada and the United States, including the Hamilton Spectator, the Toronto Star, Canadian Living and Harrowsmith.
She also published articles in The Beaver, the Old Farmer’s Almanac and Maclean’s.
For many years, MacDonald had a fruitful partnership with War of 1812 re-enactor and author Bob Blakeley of Delhi.
For years, Blakeley delivered a convincing impersonation of Lieut.-Col. Robert Nichol, Quartermaster General of the Upper Canada Militia during the conflict 200 years ago. MacDonald would occasionally take the stage with Blakeley in the role of Nichol’s wife Theresa.
“She was very good at attending re-enactments,” Blakeley said Monday. “But you could never get her to sleep on the ground. She would retire to a motel where she could have her comforts.”
Blakeley added that MacDonald was “a real historian and a real treasure as far as I’m concerned.”
MacDonald received the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012 for her contribution to Canadian letters. She was a member of the Crime Writers of Canada and the Professional Writers Association of Canada.
Canadian Cremation & Burial Services of Stoney Creek handled arrangements for MacDonald’s funeral.

Appeal ends, nearly $6000 raised - Sault StarThursday, 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...

— 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...
'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto StarThursday, 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...
