Dr. Elana Fric honoured at Toronto domestic violence vigil - CBC.ca

Tuesday, December 20, 2016

It's important we take this moment to honour her, but also to draw attention to the epidemic that is violence against women," said Mohini Datta-Ray, executive director of the North York Women's Shelter. A candlelight vigil held outside Queen's Park Wednesday paid tribute to Fric and "all those who have experienced abuse."  Radical loss "We lose women to violence every six days in the country," Datta-Ray said to those gathered in the cold. "It is in this context we must understand Elana Fric's death. Her death has received the attention that the murders of hundreds of women also killed at the hands of their violent partners in this country do not." "Let us use this moment to act to make sure the outrageous tragedy of domestic violence is one that we stop in our lifetime." Deaths stemming from intimate partner violence are "all too common," says Mohini Datta-Ray, executive director of the North York Women's Shelter. (Mohini Datta-Ray) From November 2015 to November 2016, data compiled by the Ontario Association of Interval and Transition Houses shows at least 26 women in Ontario died due to "femicide," or the "intentional murder of women because they are women." Many of these women were allegedly killed by their husbands, boyfriends or other intimate partners, the data shows. "No ethnic group, no socio-economic group, is free of this problem," sa...

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. (...
