Brother of 2 sisters stabbed to death charged with 1st- and 2nd-degree murder - CBC.caTuesday, December 27, 2016
Hundreds of people paid their respects to the two women during a funeral service Sunday afternoon at the Jami Omar Mosque on Old Richmond Road.
Imam Sikander Hashmi of the Kanata Muslim Association said Nasiba A-Noor had taught at the Tarbiyah Learning centre with his wife.
Many of her former students attended Sunday's service, Hashmi said.
"We would often see her walking out to catch the bus. It's just so tragic, you know, that today we're here to offer her funeral prayers," he said.
"[They were] gentle souls, and what's most tragic is that the world needs more people like this."
The deaths of the A-Noor sisters are the city's 23rd and 24th homicides of 2016.
The Ottawa Police Service is currently conducting a review of its historical homicide data, but the last time Ottawa saw this many homicides in a single year was likely 1995 — when the number of homicides was somewhere between 23 and 25.

A funeral service of life and thanksgiving in honour of John Herbert Wall was held at St. Thomas Anglican Church in Stittsville, followed by interment at Maple Grove Cemetery in Kanata.
Herb Wall, who died on Monday, Aug. 1, was born on July 9, 1921 on a farm at Hazeldean, one of the children of Sarah Bradley and John Wall.
He served six years overseas with the Canadian Army Postal Corps in World War Two, attaining the rank of Sergeant, after which he worked for the Post Office, serving as Postmaster at both RCAF Station Uplands and in Stirling, ON. He was also a long standing member of the Royal Canadian Legion.
He met his wife, the former Mary Hobbs, at a postwar “welcome home” reception and they were married for 62 years until her death in 2014.
In keeping with the family’s wishes, the funeral service included involvement of a Royal Canadian Legion colour party, a bagpiper and a bugler. Members from the Kanata and Stittsville Legion branches were both involved.
Legion poppies were distributed to everyone at the funeral service and the service began with the Royal Canadian Legion colour party being led to the casket at the front of the church by bagpiper Jor...

— 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...
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...
'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...
