'In heaven smiling down at us': Mi'kmaq Grand Chief Ben Sylliboy remembered -

Thursday, December 14, 2017

Battiste said.Queen Elizabeth, accompanied by Grand Chief Ben Sylliboy, attends a Mi'kmaq cultural event in Halifax on June 28, 2010. (Andrew Vaughan/Canadian Press)?"One of the things that stuck out to me about the grand chief was just his humbleness, his respect, his love and his kindness for everyone," Battiste said. "He wasn't a flashy person. Despite the fact that he was the grand chief, he was our head of state, he never acted like it. He never tried to say he had more power than any other individual."Battiste called Sylliboy "a man of faith" who enjoyed the community's church and atmosphere.Jaime Battiste, the province's treaty education lead, said Sylliboy's humbleness was one of his outstanding characteristics. (Norma Jean MacPhee/CBC)"Out of all the places where he could have had his funeral — much bigger places — but this is where he would have wanted it because this is the place that he loved."'Gentle humour'Eleanor Bernard of Eskasoni said Sylliboy was instrumental in the development of Mawitam'k, a not-for-profit organization that operates homes for Mi'kmaq people with developmental disabilities or mental health concerns.That's just one example of Sylliboy's consistent desire to help others."He always helped anyone in need," Bernard said. "It didn't matter whether you were Mi'kmaq, it didn't matter where you were from, he would help you out."Eleanor Bernard of Eskasoni said Grand Chief Ben Sylliboy was always willing to help anyone in need. (Norma Jean MacPhee/CBC)Sylliboy will also be remembered for his "gentle humour," she said."He would laugh at life's situations. He would laugh at himself.… There was times where he'd have difficulty moving around. His mobility was not as good. But he would laugh at that, he would make jokes about that. And he'd make jokes along with you, about you and for you and against you. He had a lot of humour," Bernard said, laughing.Googoo said despite Sylliboy's ill health in his later years, he always made an effort to attend events, ceremonies, meetings and high school graduations.Residential school survivorBorn in Waycobah on March 2, 1941, Sylliboy was sent to the Indian Residential School in Shubenacadie, N.S., when he was just six.He later contracted tuberculosis and spent four years in and out of hospitals.A poster of Grand Chief Ben Sylliboy at his funeral service.

Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and Times

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Humboldt later this week. — 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...

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...

'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto Star

Thursday, 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...
