Thursday, April 12, 2018

Ontario honours BroncosThere are 24 members of the Humboldt Broncos, with members of the team ranging in age from 16 to 21.(Humboldt Broncos/Twitter)A little over a week ago, the small town of Lucan was celebrating its love for hockey after winning the Kraft Hockeyville contest. Now, the mayor of Lucan-Biddulph, Cathy Burghardt-Jesson, says the mood has been transformed as the town is overcome with sorrow."It's in a state of disbelief. You can't begin to comprehend something like this. It's tragic and just immense sadness," she said. "We feel so much empathy and sympathy. We're humbled. It's hard to reconcile. A week ago there were tears of joy, and a week later, tears of sorrow."She said the town will extend a helping hand to the grieving city of Humboldt.Town native Colin Haskett is also gathering support from people across the southwest including those in Lucan, Exeter and Zurich.The vice president of Haskett Funeral Homes Ltd. is gathering condolences in the form of online comments and hand-written sentiments to compile in a commemorative book for the families affected by the tragedy.Please take a couple of moments and share your condolences to those effected by this unimaginable tragedy.

As hockey parents, we all feel like we're one big family," she said.

Don't post ill about the dead, funeral home director pleads - The North Bay Nugget

Friday, November 4, 2016

Mourners then see the comments, said Haskett, whose family operates funeral homes in Lucan, Exeter and Zurich. “It’s just ripping the hearts and souls out of these people when they read things.” Haskett made an online appeal for people to think twice before posting something that could hurt a grieving family. His Facebook post has been shared nearly 1,000 times and generated more than 150 comments, including some from fellow funeral home directors who praised Haskett for tackling the issue. “Can you imagine finding your life turned completely upside down, only to then read that some people believe that your loved one deserved to die based on their actions?” he wrote. “Sometimes, people make tragic mistakes and it costs them their life, but offering your opinion on this one way or the other does nothing to ease a grieving family’s hurt. Is your right to freedom of speech more important than other people’s feelings?” Isabel Pedersen, the Canada Research Chair in digital life, media and culture, said some online commenters weigh in on news events to feel important and involved. “What’s happened is social media has become a way to build this sort of social capital, and in some ways it’s interfering with our societal values in the real world,” said Pedersen, a professor at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology in Oshawa. She has a theory about why people are writing things online that they’d likely never say in person. “I think people are beginning to see themselve...

Appeal ends, nearly $6000 raised - Sault Star

Thursday, 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 Star

Thursday, 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...

Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and Times

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Humboldt later this week. https://t.co/DvpAsm2Ybw#HumboldtStrong#PutYourStickOut#XBRpic.twitter.com/h2EyHhQjrj — 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...
