Patterson kept working to help Sault - Sault Star

Thursday, November 17, 2016

She did it. You asked her. She did it. No questions.” Patterson was also zone commander, overseeing legion branches from White River to Spanish, and helped at the district level from White River to Mattawa. Paulencu called the grandmother of five his mentor. “She had more knowledge than the rest of us combined,” he said. Branch 25 has about 600 members. “There's a wealth of information that is gone now. It's going to be a lot of work to (replace) what she did for the branch.” Patterson was recognized for her community work by Business and Professional Women's Club in March. Besides Branch 25, she was also involved with Safe Communities Partnership, American Legion Auxiliary Unit 3 in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., and Algoma District #3 Retired Teachers of Ontario. Patterson and Peggy Houghton helped launch a Sault chapter of Canada's Association for the Fifty Plus in 2004. “I think they're much more active,” Patterson said of seniors in 2004. “So many people in the past just seemed to retire and there was nothing much for them to do.” She encouraged Sault residents to remember the contributions of veterans, and the work Branch 25 does, in letters to the editor. “We the younger generation do have so much to thank our veterans for,” said Patterson in a 2001 letter. She was Branch 25 president when two stone monuments were dedicated to war veterans at Greenwood Cemetery in 1999. “In these graves now rest the remains of the comrades who crawled through the mud, who watched their buddies fall, mortally wounded close to them, (and) who endured unspeakable hardships,” she said. The new monuments, Patterson added, will “serve as an everlasting tribute to the memory of those who served in war.” She attended Branch 25's annual president's dinner at Primavera Ban...

Hundreds mourn Ottawa-Vanier MP Belanger - Pembroke Daily Observer

Friday, September 02, 2016

Sen. Jim Munson, who was on a parliamentary visit to Africa with Belanger earlier this year, described his friend and colleague as “a man of action.” “I think we should remember him as the man from Mattawa who grew up in Ottawa, who just knew what was right to do.” “You saw that when he was in Africa, when he was on the streets of Vanier-Ottawa. He cared about the common man, the common person.” Belanger was engaged with a number of human rights issues, including the deportation of citizens to Burundi. “I can say without pause that Belanger saved lives,” said Charles Makaza, a spokesman for the Alliance of Burundis in Canada. Belanger was also well-known as a staunch defender of national unity and francophone rights. Some 20 years ago, he was a key figure in the battle to save Ottawa’s French-language Montfort Hospital — a victory his constituents never forgot. “At a time when we barely won a referendum in 1995, there was Belanger … fighting the fight to keep a hospital, a French-speaking hospital, the pride of francophone Ontario, alive,” Munson said. Conservative MP Tom Lukiwski, who flew in from Saskatchewan for the funeral, said Belanger was well-liked and respected across all party lines — “a rare feat in Ottawa.” “I found him to be an excellent Parliamentarian and an even better person. I wish I would have known him better than I did.” Belanger’s wife, Catherine, was visibly moved by the eulogies, which she listened to from her front-row seat, next to her husband’s flag-draped casket. Her son Easton spoke of the private battle the Belanger family fought in a very public way. “But for one singular moment in December, when he expressed his disbelief at contracting the disease, he never, ever, once complained. He never felt sorry for himself.” Easton told of how his mom and Belanger met while working on a political campaign. “What I do know is that Mauril had a moustache and hair that my mom loved and still loves to this very day. “I’m sorry prime minister, you’re apparently not the first to have nice hair,” Easton said, drawing laughter. Trudeau was the first to eulogize his “true friend” whose legacy, he said, would stand the test of time. “There are many more Canadians, generations to come, who may not know Mauril Belanger by name but who will celebrate his commitment to equality and inclusion every time they stand in their classrooms or at a hockey game and sing our national anthem — in both official languages, of course,” Trudeau said. Belanger was known to meet with his constituents over “a petit café,” said Louis-Alexandre Lanthier, a former staffer to both Trudeau and Bélanger, in an interview with the Citizen. Lanthier credited Bélanger with teaching him about the value of one-on-one face time with his constituents, and years later, when Lanthier went to work for Trudeau, the rookie MP would choose a community centre or a rest...

Mattawa native won eight consecutive elections - The North Bay Nugget

Friday, September 02, 2016

The funeral for longtime Ottawa-Vanier Liberal MP Mauril Bélanger will be held Saturday at Notre Dame Basilica on Sussex Drive. The Mattawa native died Aug. 15, just nine months after he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The diagnosis came barely a month after Bélanger, 61, won his eighth consecutive election victory.Bélanger's death comes as his bill to amend the lyrics to O Canada to be gender neutral remains before the Senate. Bélanger, who lost the ability to speak soon after being diagnosed, used a computerized tablet to introduce the private member's bill in the House of Commons in December. In March, his fellow MPs honoured him by making him honorary Speaker for the day. Bélanger had been considered a frontrunner for the Speaker's job before the disease forced him to withdraw his name.His last appearance in the House was June 10, for the final debate on the bill before it passed to the Senate. The bill is expected to be passed this fall.News of his death prompted a flood of tributes from politicians, constituents and others moved by his battle with ALS. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, wh...

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa Citizen

Wednesday, 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. Clark Davey, former publisher of the Montreal Gazette, displaying a mock-up of the paper's new Sunday edition in 1988. Bill Grimshaw / The Canadian Press 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. (...
