Badgerow trial: Horror of killing has dulled after 35 years - Hamilton SpectatorFriday, September 30, 2016
As if the horror and injustice of a 23-year-old woman trying to make a short walk home and not making it has been dulled and flattened by time and repetition.
Diane was found dead in a creek near her Stoney Creek apartment in June 1981. Her case went cold for 17 years.
In 1998, Robert Badgerow, now 58, was charged with first-degree murder. He has already been tried three times before. (A conviction, an appeal, then two hung juries.) He is now the first person in Canada to be tried four times for the same first-degree murder charge.
Colin Vandenbrink, Diane's on-again-off-again boyfriend at the time of her murder, doesn't shed a tear when he takes the stand.
He tells the court he was a pallbearer at her funeral.
"I was given her nursing tag with her name on it, photos and a ring I had given her."
He recites it evenly. Matter-of-factly.
That is not to say that he wasn't devastated by her murder. He likely was. Or that it hasn't haunted him throughout his life. It probably has. But the days of raw emotion have long passed.
He testified about getting home from a weekend trip with a buddy and his mother telling him Diane was dead. He raced from Etobicoke to her apartment to frantically knock on her door.
But he recounts that now, on Thursday in a Kitchener courtroom, in measured tones. As though it happened to someone else.
Vandenbrink does however help make Diane real to the jury. She was five foot nine. Fit. A nursing assistant on a "geriatric ward" at McMaster hospital. She wore a white nursing uniform and little cap.
Together they liked to hike. She had a cat. Sometimes they smoked marijuana together. Sometimes they went to bars, par...
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. (...
