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...

Mattawa native won eight consecutive elections - The North Bay Nugget

Friday, September 2, 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...

Hundreds mourn Ottawa-Vanier MP Belanger - London Free Press

Friday, September 2, 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...

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...

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...

'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...
