The Canadian Press
Alexandre Caron couldn't be prouder to be a Canadian than he was Monday afternoon.Caron, of North Bay, was waiting in the parking lot at Motion Canada on Gormanville Road for almost 100 vehicles, from small cars to big rigs, to pull in on their journey from Alberta to Parliament Hill with a message for federal politicians.
"This is about more than pipelines," Caron says. "This is about government. This is about all the provinces having different issues. It's about getting back the political process."The United We Roll Convoy for Canada, a caravan of transports, work vehicles and personal automobiles, left Red Deer, Alta., last Thursday bound for Ottawa and a protest on Parliament Hill Tuesday."The media and the government have divided the provinces," Caron says. "We want to fight for our freedoms and our rights. We want fair government.""We are watching Justin Trudeau slowly strip away every right we had," Sarah Zaldinger, of Timmins, said as about two dozen supporters waited for the convoy to arrive, sharing updates on when the parade would roll into town."He is stripping the future of my children and their children and their children," Zaldinger said. "They are being set up for failure. Their rights, their future, will all be destroyed...

Poulin's descent into tragedy might have been avoided.Word of the couple's deaths came with a phone call from an RCMP detective who'd been at the scene in Springhill, N.S., when the bodies were found on March 20.The officer told Jessica Ridley her 45-year-old sister was the victim of "blunt force trauma to the head" and that Poulin, 42, had taken his own life after a fire was set in the small white house they were renovating.The couple, who had been together for about 15 months, had moved east to renovate a home and begin a new life together.

Service supports grieving families - The Sudbury StarWednesday, July 05, 2017
Dragonfly Advisory Services provides its business to the areas of Sudbury, Elliot Lake, Espanola, and Manitoulin Island.“I’m thinking in the next few years you’ll see us in Sault Ste. Marie, North Bay,” Wirta said. “But if someone reaches out we’re not going to say no."If a person has anyone they can already go to, Wirta stressed for those resources to be used.“Let them do due diligence, and let them be there now because they’ve been there all along,” Wirta said. “If you have a lawyer, yeah, let them do their job, but we’re still here.”Wirta is hoping her type of business takes off in other markets.“Oftentimes with an aging demographic, the documentation is overwhelming,” Wirta said. “We only know what we need to know in life. If you haven’t lost someone then sometimes you don’t know where to start. That’s that missing link I found (there to be) in Sudbury. We’re also finding now that we’re getting dialogue coming in from all across Ontario, saying if this can work in Northern Ontario, then why can’t it work here?”The business can be reached by phone at 705-562-6071, or 705-589-2131, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.Dragonfly Advisory Services’ website can be found at dragonflyadvisoryservices.ca.Twitter: @keith_dempseyLet's block ads!

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. (...
