History Space: Sounds of the Champlain Echoes - BurlingtonFreePress.comWednesday, July 05, 2017
International event in BurlingtonIn 1969, 10 years after the first gathering held in Burlington, the Echoes decided to host the International Convention and Competition. We used the Redwood on Shelburne Road, and the Holiday Inn, Howard Johnson, and the Cupola on Williston Road. On Oct. 22, some 1,000 ladies descended on the area and as they came, so did the snow. We had buses scheduled to take the ladies to each hotel, to Church Street, and to their appointed times on stage.What fun it was to coordinate this. We reserved Burlington High School for Friday night Quartette Competition and Saturday night Chorus Competition. A couple of weeks before the main event, the roof fell in on Burlington High School Auditorium. The city of Burlington saved us by letting us use Memorial Auditorium.img itemprop="url" src="https://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/4da5901d0f8bc29c27a08273e6e600bbfe738bea/c=0-252-2870-2404&r=x408&c=540x405/local/-/media/2017/06/16/Burlington/B9327884771Z.1_20170616193736_000_GG7IJ5K7B.1-0.jpg" alt="img-602125723-0001" width="540" height="405" data-mycapture-src="https://www.gannett-cdn.com/media/2017/06/16/Burlington/B9327884771Z.1_20170616193736_000_GG7IJ5K7B.1-0.jpg" data-mycapture-sm-src="https://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-...
UPDATE: ODSS principal Darryl Kirkland had a knack for inspiring others - Orangeville BannerTuesday, January 31, 2017
One contact would leave an impression,” said longtime friend and colleague Patrick Hamilton, principal of Centre Dufferin District High School (CDDHS) in Shelburne.
“It is pretty easy in a job like principal to get bogged down in the day-to-day management of a building and staff. But Darryl is a people-first person,” he said. “That was definitely his biggest strength.”
Students, educators and school administrators across the Upper Grand District School Board (UGDSB) are mourning the loss of Kirkland, who died on Friday (Jan. 27) after battling cancer for many years. The 51-year-old leaves behind his wife Christine and two children, Emma and Joshua, as well as his mother Doris.
“You didn’t have to talk to him 100 times for him to have an impact. … One contact would leave an impression."CDDHS principal Patrick Hamilton
“She has been a rock. There will be moments down the road and this week will be really, really tough but she has been incredible,” Hamilton said of Christine, a teacher at Westside Secondary School. “She is holding up OK, and there are lots of supports around with her kids too. They have an incredible support group.”
It didn’t take long for the news of Kirkland’s death to spread across social media late last week.
Words such as “genuine,” “sense of humour,” “caring,” and “kind” have dominated the Remembering Darryl Kirkland...
Nova Scotians we lost who touched their communities - TheChronicleHerald.caFriday, January 06, 2017
Her heart and lungs were in the wrong place. Despite all odds, she learned to walk, talk and go to school. She died at five years of age, and her father asked their Shelburne County town to “pay it forward” with random acts of kindness in her memory. The response spread around the world.
Hickman was a Newfoundland lawyer, chief justice and politician, but his role in one Nova Scotia matter made him a household name. He chaired the Royal Commission on the Donald Marshall Jr. case. It looked into the mishandling of Marshall’s wrongful conviction. Hickman died of cancer at the age of 90.

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. (...
