Cornwall funeral home faces hearing over alleged paperwork violations - Standard FreeholderSaturday, March 02, 2019
McArthur Bros. & MacNeil Funeral Home & Chapel in Cornwall and Parker Funeral Home in Morrisburg are in peril of being shut down because the owner and funeral director of both businesses, Bonnie Parker, may be stripped of her licence.Last month, the Bereavement Authority of Ontario (BAO) issued a notice saying it intends to revoke Parker's funeral director and funeral establishment operator licences because of "financial mismanagement and record keeping compliance and misconduct." Parker said she intends to vigorously dispute these allegations and has already launched an appeal to challenge them in front of a tribunal.Parker believes she will win the appeal and plans to continue operating normally until the situation is resolved one way or the other."I'm here to take people of people in their time of need. I feel that I am needed in this city," said Parker. "I love Cornwall. It's a world of possibilities here."The BAO is to the funeral industry what a college of physicians is to doctors, or a bar association is to lawyers. If Parker loses her licences, she would no longer be able to run the two funeral homes she owns, putting their futures in serious jeopardy.The organization's CEO and registrar, Carey Smith, could not go into the specific circumstances of any alleged rule violations that have led them to try...

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. (...
