Manchester United's Premier League clash with Southampton on Wednesday after being given compassionate leave to attend his father's funeral.Pogba was absent from the squad for Sunday's defeat at Tottenham following the death of his father, Fassou Antoine, on Friday.The France midfielder is likely to return in the final league game of the season against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford ahead of next Wednesday's Europa League final against Ajax in Stockholm.But manager Jose Mourinho said he had put no time constraints on Pogba and told a news conference: "I don't think he will be available against Southampton."I think that his dad's funeral has to be between Tuesday and Wednesday in France, so I don't think that Paul has the conditions to play."We have left him completely free to be back when he thinks he's ready."With United now unable to claim a top-four finish in the Premier League, Mourinho will rest and rotate players against Southampton and Palace before the Ajax clash."A final is a final and we have to go to the final with everything like Ajax does, because they have finished their season and they do not have any more football to play until the final," he said."But I have to build some teams with the minimum of ...
Simcoe County history - Orillia Packet & TimesThursday, March 9, 2017
Minerva Margaret Greenaway was a pioneer in medicine, albeit a little-known one.She was born in 1873 or 1874 in Simcoe County, in Barrie, to the Tottenham family of Tom Greenaway and Matilda Totten. (Tottenham was named after her mother’s family.)Greenaway grew up on the family farm that had been cleared by her grandparents in the 1840s. She attended the local public school and taught in Tecumseth Township before heading south to start her medical education.This would not have been out of the ordinary if Greenaway was a man. It would have been a short trip to Toronto, and bingo. But Greenaway was a young woman, and a young woman didn’t need to obtain an education in medicine.Luckily for her, she was among a wave (a small wave, but a wave nonetheless) of young women aspiring to a career in medicine outside of nursing – the only medical career that had traditionally been available to women.At the end of the 19th century, medical education for women in Ontario was possible, just not easy. Toronto and Kingston both had women’s medical colleges, thanks to the work of Jennie Kidd Gowanlock and Emily Howard Jennings. These colleges h...

Midget A hockey team and his father was the team’s manager. The team is planning a tribute to the family at their next game Jan. 10 at the Forest Hill Arena.
He was a fan of the Green Bay Packers and Tottenham Hotspur and had even attended a Premier League Football game in London with his father last March.
Andrew was a student at Montcrest and enjoyed many sports. He was a member of the Toronto Minor Bantam AAA Titans hockey team. His teammates held a memorial service prior to their game on Tuesday at the Toronto Marlboros Holiday Classic Tournament and dedicated their game to the Taber brothers.
The family’s favourite place was their cottage on Stoney Lake where they spent time water skiing on the lake.
The family also attended St. Peter’s-on-the-Rock Church, the unique historic church for summer cottagers located on an island on Stoney Lake.

— 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 plan on contributing one dollar from every ticket sold to Tuesday’s Game at the Memorial Centre to a crowdsourcing fund for the victims. Galbraith said another version of the book of condolences will be set up at the arena ahead of that game.“It will all be added to one and sent off at the end of the week,” he added.Some 30 people had signed the city hall book as of mid-afternoon Monday, as word of the tribute began slowly to spread.Some of the people signing came from out of town, including Prescott, Mallorytown, Delta and Kingston.All of the local signatures and messages will be conveyed to Humboldt city hall.Elsewhere locally, organizers of the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend used their Facebook account to post tributes to the Broncos and a link to the crowdsourcing page.Brockville Mayor David Henderson said the scope of the tragedy extends beyond the world of hockey.“I think it wa...
'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto StarThursday, April 12, 2018
Flyers and Marlboros. (Vince Talotta / Toronto Star)Pejcinovski was a promising prospect in next year’s Ontario Hockey League draft. “We remember him as a teammate and friend,” West said, urging the boys to “sit together, support each other, and keep playing the game.” And they did, but with a twist. The two teams tossed their sticks into pile at centre ice — with no discernible divide between Flyers and Marlboros. Players picked sticks at random, shuffling them like a deck of cards into two new teams.They then peeled their rival jerseys and put on new ones, black or white with a capital “R,” for Roy, in burgundy. The colour in the boys’ socks — orange and black for the Flye...
Appeal ends, nearly $6000 raised - Sault StarThursday, April 12, 2018
Hunter Chamberlain and their son, Bentley, died last Tuesday. Their SUV, northbound on Highway 69 near Parry Sound, crossed the centre line and collided with a transport. The SUV caught fire. Ontario Provincial Police have not released the names of the deceased pending identification by Ontario Centre of Forensic Sciences. Whitehead's best friend, Rebecca Chapman, launched a GoFundMe appeal (https://www.gofundme.com/help-support-jodey-whitehead) on Friday to help Victoria's mother, Jodey Whitehead, pay for funeral costs. Her goal was $2,000. That target was exceeded by more than 50 per cent within 24 hours with $3,186 donated by 66 contributors by 10 a.m Saturday. By Sunday afternoon, the tally grew to $5,980 from 136 donors. In an update, Chapman thanked donors and said the appeal was finished. “As per request by the family, I will be closing donations and taking the funds to them,” she said. “They decided that this is an overwhelming, but very appreciated amount of support, and that they would like me to close the fund as we have reached nearly $6,000.”Many donors offered their condolences about the trio's death. “My heart goes out to anyone impacted by this tragedy,” said Danielle Heatley. “I can't imagine the pain of losing a child and grandchild,” said MaryClaire Wood in a post. “I pray you find the strength to deal with this terrible loss.“Thanks to everyone for their generosity,” said Jonathan White...
