Bishop Marcel Damphousse
"There were four or five bishops there on Wednesday and a half a dozen bishops here today," he said. "Also, there is a message from Bishop (Marcel) Damphousse, the former bishop before I came. He sends his condolences. The highways are snow covered in Northern Ontario and he can't get down here."Bishop Derouchie, who succeeded Bishop LaRocque, is here as well and he is going to be one of the priests saying the Eucharistic prayers. There will be three interventions by Bishop Derouchie and Bishop O'Brien, the Archbishop of Kingston and the new bishop-elect, Bishop Keith Rocher, is here.

"He accepted that. He was very much a supporter of mine. He wanted me to take the position with the Bishops' Assembly but I thought I would rather teach, so a few years later I became a bishop and he said ‘Welcome to the group.'"I don't think he was entirely happy that the diocese was going to become a part of Ottawa in the next couple of years, but I called him and left him a message on his voicemail when the new bishop was appointed.

2 N.L. funeral homes with suspended licences still offer prepaid services to new clients - CBC.caSaturday, March 02, 2019
An undercover CBC News investigation has found that Sunset Memorial Funeral Home in Grand Falls-Windsor said it would take money in trust for prepaid services, while Gordon Woolfrey Funeral Home in Lewisporte said it would accept money in trust or through insurance.A Sunset Memorial employee explained how it works over the phone."What happens is obviously a person would come in and select the funeral of their choice, the services and things like that," the employee said."And what happens is then, basically you have a couple of different options in regards with the payments, that sort of thing. What happens is the funeral is paid in full, that price is obviously locked in and money goes into a trust account, and obviously there would be no further payments then."Employees for Botwood, Sunset Memorial and Gordon Woolfrey funeral homes, which are all owned by Terry Green, said they either accept money through an insurance agent, in trust, or a combination of the two, respectively. (Facebook)A Gordon Woolfrey Funeral Home employee described the process there."Usually how a pre-arrangement works is somebody pays their funeral - say if somebody pays fo...
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. (...
