Death Notices - March 2019 - Port Dover Maple LeafWednesday, March 27, 2019
As a teenager in Port Dover, he began his 38-year career with Canada Post, first sorting mail and finally as long-time senior assistant (Port Dover) and postmaster (Jarvis, 1981-1990). Allen may be best remembered for his ever-polite, gentlemanly manner, his passion for fiddle playing, and his pastime as purveyor of Country Candy's much-loved candy floss and apples, a business he inherited from in-laws Harry and Gibby Rolston. Allen was happiest playing his "little red fiddle," first with the Country Driftwoods in the 1960s, and more recently with the Country Snowbirds near his winter home in Largo, Florida. Even beset by Alzheimer's, Allen remembered his fiddle tunes and smiled as he played. In earlier years, Allen and fellow St. John's Ambulance attendant Charlie Bridgwater ran Port Dover's first ambulance service from 1955-1960, working day and night with a cast of volunteers, providing first aid to the town's injured and ill and rushing victims to hospital. He remembered hours spent in local arenas treating hockey injuries. A proud Power Squadron member, Allen enjoyed boating to Long Point. In 1977 his life changed when he married Jackie (Rolston) Landon and moved to Port Ryerse, where he bravely took on life with Jackie's three children and rural surroundings, transforming the house and grounds with his carpentry skills. A third-generation Port Doverite, he takes with him his remar...

Violent crime spree ends after chase on Hwy. 400 - Toronto SunWednesday, July 05, 2017
Greenaway. “It was a cowardly act.”The investigation is on up to six counts of attempted murder could come. Kristian Jarvis, 31, was taken into custody after allegedly fleeing the vehicle that was stopped by an OPP spike belt.He will make a court appearance once police determine his charges.None of the allegations against Jarvis have been proven.At first blush, police believe he appears to have a very minor criminal record and no violence but further checks are ongoing. Police sources say he has “addiction issues.” Covered in “profane” tattoos and “wild” hair, the suspect has lived in five cities, recently.To think the chase started just 100 metres from 31 Division on Norfinch Dr. near Steeles Ave. at 6:40 a.m.Greenaway went into work early, preparing a “nice send off for 31 Division Commander Supt. Tony Riviere on his last day before transferring to 51 Division.”Instead, Supt. Riviere became engaged in a call that amounted to an all-out rolling war – with Greenaway himself and his team involved in the “tactical following” high-speed chase of the suspect.“It started with the suspect (allegedly) shooting at his own brother over payment over a car repair,” said Greenaway. “Next, was an (alleged) carjacking of a woman and her sister who were on their way into work. She was (allegedly) shot senselessly and we are all thinking of her.”Then, along the route at Hwy. 400, the lead car in the pursuit was caught in a hail of bullets. The police car has at least one bullet hole, as does the silver Honda Civic, after officers returned gunfire.“These guys are lucky to be alive,” said Toronto Police Association President Mike McCormack. “They are shaken up because this was a ridiculous volley of gunfire and carnage.”Calling the suspect “angry and belligerent,” Greenaway said all the assistance necessary will be offered to the shot at officers.“It was sneaky because the driver was pulling over as if was going to surrender and then (allegedly) shot at them out the stolen car’s window,” said Greenaway. “Being shot at once is bad enough but three officers had this happen twice. I am so proud of them and all of the officers.”But the only good thing that came out of this, said Greenaway, is no one died in a call where many could firstname.lastname@example.orgLet's block ads!

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. (...
