Vineland man puts finishing touches on restored 1950s ambulance - Niagarathisweek.com

Thursday, April 12, 2018

LINCOLN — A piece of local history has been given a second life.Earlier this summer Vineland’s Len Kowalik put the finishing touches on restoring a 1952 Pontiac ambulance that was once operated in Welland. Kowalik, a Niagara EMS worker, bought the vehicle in 2014 from a Milton man, setting about to return it to its former glory.“It was too nice to see someone hotrod it,” said Kowalik, who also owns some restored vehicles from his family’s tender fruit farm.Considering its age, the vehicle was in rather good shape. That’s in part because it was operated in the 50s by the Cyanamid fertilizer and chemical plant in Welland. At the time, there was no EMS or standardized ambulance service. Instead, gas stations, funeral homes and factories owned and operated them. Kowalik’s ambulance only has 7,700 miles on the odometer and following its decommissioning in the 70s spent most of its time inside a Milton man’s barn.Over the past three years, Kowalik stripped it down and cleaned it up. He redid the flooring, re-chromed the bumpers and had the exterior painted with the help of...

SIU clears OPP officer in Vineland case where man ran onto QEW - Hamilton Spectator

Tuesday, January 24, 2017

It was around 7 p.m. on Oct. 20, 2015 that police received reports of a disabled vehicle on the north shoulder of the westbound QEW, west of Victoria Avenue at Vineland, according to the Special Investigations Unit report into the incident. When the offer approached the driver of the vehicle – now standing beside his car – the man told them he had a busted headlight. Then, without warning, he darted into the highway traffic. He was struck by a transport truck carrying 18,000 kg of freight, propelling him back onto the shoulder. The officer put on his emergency lights and called for emergency crews. A nurse and surgical resident who had been driving by stopped to help before an ambulance arrived. He was taken to the Hamilton General Hospital, and was treated for numerous fractures to bones in his head, face, pelvis and foot. "On the record gathered in this investigation, it is evident that the subject officer was at all times in the lawful discharge of his duty and did nothing to contribute to the man's rash decision aside from being present at the time and trying to help him out," Acting SIU Director Joseph Martino wrote in his decision. "Accordingly, there are no grounds for proceeding with criminal charges in this case." The SIU is an arm's length agency that investigates all report...

Tory teen fights to overcome age gap - Hamilton Spectator

Friday, January 6, 2017

Twenty Valley Golf and Country Club in Vineland. "But we need to ensure we have a curriculum that properly includes parents in the discussion, " added Oosterhoff, who has worked briefly as a policy analyst on Parliament Hill as well as in demolition and excavating. He is on hiatus from first-year political science studies at Brock University. The website of his Spring Creek Canadian Reformed Church in Vineland has links to the Association for Reformed Political Action. The lobby group brands the sex-ed curriculum "sexual erotica being handed out to our kids by politicians" and calls Bill 28 "Orwellian" and "radical" for denying "the reality of sexual difference." Bill 28 will come to a vote later this fall. If he's elected, Oosterhoff said he's counting on Brown to let Tory MPPs vote according to their conscience on motions or legislation they may personally disagree with. "Please don't let Patrick Brown silence you if you're elected," urged Queenie Yu, an independent candidate running against sex-ed and Bill 28. Yu ran as an independent in the Scarborough-Rouge River byelection Sept. 1 solely on the issue of repealing the sex-ed curriculum. Brown has muzzled the teen during the byelection, refusing to allow interviews with members of the Queen's Park media, who have subsequently made the trek to Niagara to find him at public events and ask questions. New Democrat candidate Mike Thomas, 56, a retired police officer and police union president, is looking for support from voters wary of voting for a teenager and disgruntled with 13 years of Liberal government and scandals, from eHealth to the recent bribery charges against Wynne's former chief of staff. "I'm asking people to make an informed decision," he said, calling his police and union time "very valuable life experiences." Oosterhoff encourages dissatisfaction with the Wynne administration, which is struggling in recent polls — invoking a loud and clear response during the meeting in Vineland. Ringuette was jeered, booed and laughed at several times on issues ranging from electricity prices to a 2012 Liberal government decision to scrap plans to redevelop the hospital in Grimsby, in the west end of the riding sandwiched between Hamilton and St. Catharines. When she mocked Oosterhoff for never having paid a hydro bill, one man shouted "lucky him!" The Conservative told reporters age "isn't an issue" when he rings doorbells around the riding and called criticisms of his teen status "political cynicism." Back on Main Street, voters give Oosterhoff credit for beating out veteran politicos twice his age — including PC party president Rick Dykstra, a former MP for St. Catharines — to win the Tory nomination and a chance at a job that pays about $119,000 annually. Many residents who stop for a chat on a mild, sunny weekday afternoon seem willing to give Oosterhoff a chance. "Maturity is more important than age," said a Ford autoworker walking his dog.         Let's block ads! (Why?)...

SPCA column: Pit bull ban is misguided - Vineland Daily Journal

Tuesday, December 20, 2016

But the hastily thrown-together pit bull ban would have widespread consequences, and evidence has shown that pit bull bans do not make communities safer. THE DAILY JOURNAL Vineland mayoral candidates talk public safety The Montreal ban, which is now on hold, would impose strict regulations on owners who already have a pit bull-type dog. They would have to acquire a special license that costs over $100. In order to receive a license, owners would need to provide proof that they owned the dog prior to the implementation of the ban, have no criminal record, are over the age of 18, and that the dog is altered and vaccinated.  Licenses would need to be renewed yearly. Once you have the permit to own a pit bull, your dog would have to be muzzled anytime it’s outside of the house and walked only on a 4-foot leash. You would be given a medallion that must be worn at all times to prove that the dog is registered. The first question brought up by this ban, of course, is: What is a pit bull or pit bull-type dog? This is a very broad definition, and the clarification provided was not much better. The bylaw defines pit bulls as Staffordshire bull terriers, American pit bull terriers, any mix with these breeds, or any dog that presents characteristics of one of those breeds. This is an absolutely impossible definition. A characteristic of a pit bull is short hair, strong chest, large head … literally hundreds of dogs fit this definition. Would they all be banned? And equally, if not more concerning, was the question about what would happen to all the pit bulls and pit bull-type dogs in Montreal’s animal shelters. Since it was about to become illegal for any Montreal resident to acquire a new pit bull-type dog, there would be nowhere for them to go. No matter what age they are, no matter their temperament, they would be eutha...

Appeal ends, nearly $6000 raised - Sault Star

Thursday, 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...

'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...

Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and Times

Thursday, April 12, 2018

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 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...
