High-ranking Hells Angels member shot in Lachute - Montreal Gazette

Thursday, September 15, 2016

The funeral was attended by dozens of Hells Angels from across Canada, and Boudreau could be seen walking side-by-side with Martin Bernatchez, 35, a former resident of Granby, who is the president of the Nomads chapter in Ontario. Both men stood out at the gathering as they both donned red jackets while most of the other gang members were wearing the black leather jackets that Hells Angels are normally seen in.  Nomads chapters are considered as “elite” among the Hells Angels. Police experts have testified in past court cases that the Nomads designation means the chapter’s members can operate without the territorial limitations other chapters are generally expected to respect when it comes to activities like drug trafficking.  Operation SharQc was an investigation that focused on a very violent period between 1994 and 2002 when the Hells Angels in Quebec were at war with members of rival criminal organizations. While police estimated that more than 160 people were killed during the conflict, only a few among that number were Hells Angels. That included Normand (Biff) Hamel, the last Hells Angel to be killed in the province of Quebec by rival gang members. Hamel was shot in Laval, on April 17, 2000, in the parking lot of a commercial building. The murder was later linked to the Bandidos, one of the criminal organizations the Hells Angels was at war with until the conflict ended in 2002. The Sûreté du Québec is asking anyone with information on the shooting to contact them on their tip line (Centrale de l’information criminelle) at 1-800-659-4264.  pcherry@postmedia.com twitter.com/PCHerryReporter Let's block ads!

Aquamation gains popularity as funeral home becomes 2nd in Quebec to dissolve the dead - CBC.ca

Friday, August 12, 2016

By the end of August, a chain of funeral homes in Abiti-Témiscamingue will become the second in Quebec to offer aquamation, after a home in Granby. "The ecological side of aquamation is its primary goal," said Patrick Blais, director of operation at La Résidence Funéraire de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue. "[It's] to have little or no pollution when we aquamate the deceased." "We know that cremation pollutes a lot. Each cremation emits a lot of carbon dioxide and several other pollutants into the atmosphere, which aquamation wouldn't do [because] it uses warm water instead of fire to discard human remains," he said. 100-degree alkaline solution for 12 hours In May 2015, Le Sieur in Granby became the first Quebec funeral home to offer aquamation. Charles Arsenault, its funeral director, explained at the time that aquamation submerges the body in a mixture of 100 C water with an alkaline solution comprised of sodium and potassium for 10 to 12 hours. "It's essentially an accelerated version of what takes place during natural decomposition," he told CBC's Quebec AM. Like cremation, the end result is ash. But with aquamation all human tissue is dissolved except the bones. With cremation, 80 per cent of bones remain intact. Bones are later dried and pressed into a white powder to be returned to the family.  Is aquamation the new way to go? Cremation remains the preferred choice for Quebecers. ?Blais says 91 per cent of the peopl...

Cornwall and Area Death Notices - Cornwall Seaway News

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Faith Marie Mill, in December 1954. Returning to Canada from Europe in 1954 he served in the Overseas Ferry Unit, flying small single-engined fighters across the Atlantic to Europe from Longeueil, Quebec. Postings through the late 50s and early 60s saw him training the RCAF’s (and NATO’s) growing cadre of pilots in Portage la Prairie, Saskatoon and Gimli. His experience with accident investigation within the Flight Safety Directorate in Ottawa from 1965-68 helped initiate safety procedures that dramatically brought down the accident rate amongst new jet pilots. After a year’s study in Staff College in Kingston and operational training in Chatham and Cold Lake, Bruce Burgess returned to Europe, commanding 441 and 439 reconnaissance squadrons flying CF-104s in Germany and studying with the Royal Air Force Warfare College at RAF Manby in 1972. Returning to the Air Requirements Directorate in Ottawa from 1973-77, he helped shepherd the acquisition of the next generation of CF-18 (hornet) fighter aircraft. Highlights of his later career include Base Commander at CFB Comox (1977-80), Defense Attache in London (1980-82), Chief of Staff Air Force Operations, Winnipeg (1982-84) and Deputy Chief of Staff of Operations at Aerospace Defense Command in Colorado Springs (1984-87). He was awarded the Order of Military Merit in 1984, supplementing his earlier Special Service Medal (NATO-OTAN) and Canadian Decoration. He retired with Faith to Lancaster, Ontario in 1987. Bruce Burgess was a citizen airman who lived life with integrity, humility, humour, a strong sense of responsibility and a profound commitment to Canada. The warmth of his personality, his dedication to duty, his courage and his charm enriched us all. The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday April 7, 2018 at St. Andrew’s and Knox Church, 21102 Concession Road 2, S. Glengarry, Bainsville, Ontario. The family will receive visitors on Friday April 6, 2018 from 2 to 4 p.m., and from 7 to 9 p.m., at the Munro & Morris Funeral Home, 46 Oak Street, Lancaster (613-347-3629).  www.munromorris.comDORAIS, Monique (Dufort) - At the Glengarry Memorial Hospital, Alexandria on Monday, March 26, 2018.

A list of terrorist incidents and attacks in Canada - National Post

Thursday, April 12, 2018

She is set to undergo a court-ordered mental health assessment.Jan. 29, 2017: Six men were killed and others injured after a shooting at a Quebec City mosque. Alexandre Bissonnette, 27, is facing six counts of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder using a restricted firearm. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard both called the shooting a terrorist attack.Aug. 10, 2016: Police shoot and kill terror suspect Aaron Driver in Strathroy, Ont., after he made a video that suggested he was planning to detonate a homemade bomb in a Canadian city during morning or afternoon rush hour. Driver detonated an explosive device in a taxi cab before police killed him.Oct. 22, 2014: Parliament Hill security and police shoot and kill Michael Zehaf-Bibeau after he killed Canadian soldier Cpl. Nathan Cirillo at the National War Memorial and then stormed the Parliament Buildings.Oct. 20, 2014: Quebec police shoot and kill Martin Couture-Rouleau after he threatens an officer with a knife. Couture-Rouleau was wanted for running down warrant officer Patrice Vincent and another soldier in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu. Vincent died of his injuries. Aubrey de Grey thinks the first humans who will live to 1,000 already walk among us. But is postponing death a good thing? Tech folks are a little antsy about the whole death thing. They're putting money behind DNA 'hacking,' organ printing and tiny robots that might kill what ails you Robots and asteroids are likely threats, but we'll probably be wiped out by good, old-fashioned disease Amortized over time, it's a small price to pay for the hoped for results — the reversal of aging. And transfusions are already bestowing Methuselah-like effects L...
