‘Write me soon. Stay safe’: A story of Canada’s opioid crisis, told in letters from prison - The Globe and MailWednesday, March 27, 2019
At her home in Guelph, Ont., Moira Barber lays out one of the letters between her common-law husband, Albert (Manie) Daniels, and Spencer Kell, his old cellmate at Ontario's Maplehurst prison. Tijana Martin/The Globe and Mail When Spencer Kell got out of jail last spring, leaving his cellmate Manie Daniels behind, the two friends started exchanging letters. Mr. Daniels's, written in flowing cursive script, came to Mr. Kell in Ottawa, where he was trying to stay clean and build a new life. Mr. Kell's, in bold block letters, arrived at Maplehurst prison in Milton, Ont., where Mr. Daniels was serving out the final months of his latest stretch behind bars. Their brief correspondence shines a light on the dangers that former prisoners face in the midst of Canada's opioids crisis. Mr. Daniels's full name was Albert Joseph Daniels. His Cree name was Little Buffalo that Runs Against the Herd. His mother and sisters called him Manie – little man – because he was the only boy in the family.

Doug Ford's office calls Randy Hillier's allegations 'outright lie' - CTV NewsWednesday, March 27, 2019
Conservative caucus for raising concerns about possible "illegal and unregistered" lobbying by the premier's friends and advisers.
Randy Hillier, a veteran politician who represents the eastern Ontario riding of Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston, was ousted Friday after the party said he was unwilling to be a team player.
But in an open letter Monday, Hillier gave his version of events, claiming he was turfed after pushing back against party operatives who he alleged are silencing elected politicians.
"Like many people, I had high hopes and expectations with the election of a PC government after 15 years of Liberal mismanagement, scandals, and harmful policies," Hillier said. "I could not stand by and tolerate operatives engaging in similar and more egregious acts."
Hillier, who wasn't at the legislature Monday, alleged he was condemned for a variety of activities including raising concerns of possible illegal and unregistered lobbying by close friends and advisers employed by Premier Doug Ford.
He also claimed he was punished for refusing to obtain permission to speak to the media and for failing to stand and applaud the government during legislative sessions.
He further alleged he was condemned for not seeking permission to attend his brother's funeral.
"This, to me, is the most egregious act," Hillier said. "It undermines me as a person and thereby undermines all Ontarians by putting party politics above compassion and respect."
Ford's spokesman, Simon Jefferies, said all the allegations outlined in H...

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. (...
