Seven unlicensed cannabis dispensaries quickly open in Pikwàkanagàn, population 450 - Ottawa CitizenSaturday, March 02, 2019
That created another wrinkle for him as a business owner and he had to finance the construction on his own.Bernard said most of his customers come from Petawawa, Pembroke, Eganville, Killaloe and Renfrew, although some come from as far away as Ottawa. He believes there is room for even more cannabis businesses in Pikwàkanagàn.But he admits that there's also a level of risk."It's scary when you know you can be shut down," he said.The ground zero of cannabis in Ontario is Tyendinaga, near Belleville, which is reportedly home to at least 50 dispensaries. The Tyendinaga Mohwak Council has held a series of meetings to discuss cannabis operations and decided to adopt interim regulations governing recreational cannabis, saying that the community wanted its rights and interests in the benefits of cannabis respected while protecting the community. A final regulatory regime is to be presented and ratified by April.Alderville First Nation on Rice Lake near Cobourg has developed its own "cannabis model," which includes standards for youth protection, health and safety, labelling and a complaints process. Last month, it presented a proposal for an ombudsperson to provide an impartial process for complaints about cannabis businesses from members of the community or the general public.Besides the employment and economic spinoffs, the members of the Pikwàkanagàn Cannabis Business Association say they have already contributed to the local food bank, sponsored needy families and helped to pay for funerals."We're not talking about a shady market of shady people," said Bernard. "We want to build a hospice centre. We want to give back."Are there dangers to the community? Illicit opiates are already being sold in the community, said Bernard. "If you're looking at what will destroy families, there should be more of a focus on opiates."Jay Greenwood, who operates Green Grass Oasis in a space that used to be his garage, said there would be more of a danger to Pikwàkanagàn if it were known as "poverty central" instead of gaining a reputation as "pot central."The association is looking for a band council resolution, the equivalent of a bylaw. But that hasn't happened yet.Chief Kirby Whiteduck did not respond to a request for an interview. But others who live in the area have been critical of the proliferation of dispensaries.Michael Ilgert, who lives about two kilometres from Pikwàkanagàn, said he objects to seven dispensaries opening nearby without any political or police reaction."The rules should be applied equally. Even the city of Toronto could only get five licences," he said.ALSO IN THE NEWS:Judge assures disabled romance fraud victim he's ‘not a fool'Twenty-one-year-old former Carleton U student pleads guilty to possession of child pornWest Carleton warriors advance to finals for a chance to win $100,000 for charity

A book of condolences is now in the City Hall lobby and will be sent to 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 ...
Ontario family upset over use of son's obituary - CTV NewsThursday, April 12, 2018
I felt gutted, felt like my son was dying again.”
Lavier says many families don't know that obituaries are being reposted and feel that it's a violation of privacy.
Murphy Funeral Home in Pembroke, Ont. took care of Cameron's funeral. Like many funeral homes, they post tributes and condolence books on their website. The funeral home’s owner, John Huff, says they too had no idea about sites like Afterlife.
“I've emailed them and asked them to take everything that had to do with Murphy Funeral Home off their website,” he said.
The Bereavement Authority of Ontario, which regulates anything having to do with death care in the province, says that over the past couple of weeks, they've heard from several funeral homes and members of the public who are upset about obituaries being posted on third-party websites.
The organization says in Ontario, those websites could be breaching the Consumer Protection Act if they imply co-operation with funeral homes.
Afterlife did not agree to an interview, but in a written response to CTV Ottawa, spokesperson Paco Leclerc said millions of people are pleased with their service and “nothing is underhanded.”
They also told CTV News that they never had any intentions of angering and saddening families or funeral homes because they want to help families and work with funeral homes.
The company also said: "We are a free service helping connect society to the funeral industry and helping people positively reconnect during the loss of a loved one."
The company did not answer questions about what happens to the money donated in memoriam to its site. But said there is no obligation for anyone to purchase anything from their website and flower purchases are fulfilled by local florists.
Lavier contacted the site and asked them to remove her son's obituary. The...

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. (...
