Hamilton teenager shot by police had 'the biggest heart,' girlfriend ... - TheSpec.comThursday, April 12, 2018
Taser on the ground. "They were only defending themselves."A family friend and neighbour insists MacDougall was not the aggressor. "They pursued him first and they scared him," Shannon Windsor said. "They made it worse. They are not equipped to handle these situations."The two officers shot MacDougall not far from her unit as her children and their cousins played road hockey outside her brother's home down the street, Windsor said.The mother of three young children said MacDougall was distressed and scared when he called police, or 911, twice. The second time was from her brother's place because his phone wasn't working, Windsor said."He called 911 himself and, unfortunately, they didn't do what they're supposed to. They didn't serve and protect."If MacDougall posed such a threat, why didn't police clear the street of children first, Windsor asked. "I couldn't believe that they would expose my children to that."Windsor described the MacDougall household as kind and generous, like Quinn. "Every time you saw him, he was always happy. He put a smile on your face."She has set up an online campaign to raise funds for his unexpected funeral and burial. The GoFundMe effort aims to raise $10,000.MacDougall's death was the sixth fatal police shooting in Hamilton in the last decade.Under the Police Services Act, police are trained to not draw, point or discharge a firearm unless the officer believes "on reasonable grounds" it's necessary to prevent "loss of life or serious bodily harm."Police's use of lethal force has come under scrutiny in recent years, especially following the 2013 police shooting of Steve Mesic in his Hamilton backyard, which sparked an inquest.Hamilton police agreed to make changes to the mental health training for its officers. The Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services plans to roll out a new response framework this summer that will feature new training standards.Schronk, on her way to the MacDougall residence Thursday evening for funeral arrangements, said she wants "some sort of justice for him and his family."email@example.com @TeviahMorotmoro@thespec.com905-526-3264 @TeviahMoroLet's block ads!

Grand Falls-Windsor woman disgusted by online death database - The TelegramThursday, April 12, 2018
GRAND FALLS-WINDSOR, NL – It was easy to hear the pain in Cynthia Downton’s voice as she described her family’s experience finding her sister Anne Gardner’s obituary listed on the website Afterlife. Afterlife is self-described as “Canada’s largest database of deceased people.” The website sells virtual candles and flower delivery services through links next to each obituary on its website. The site has recently come under fire for copying obituaries posted on funeral home and newspaper websites without permission. Downton told the Advertiser it broke her heart when she saw someone had used her sister’s obituary for personal gain. “We were raised in an honest household and I can’t even wrap my mind around how sick a person has got to be … to try and take advantage of people.” She said the website is taking advantage of not only the families of the deceased, but people...

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...
'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...
Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and TimesThursday, April 12, 2018

— 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...
