Wynne adviser steps down after OPP charges related to Sudbury byelection - Toronto StarFriday, November 4, 2016
December 2014.Progressive Conservatives also asked Wynne if she was involved.“When did she authorize and when did she know about the offer to Andrew Olivier?” said Tory MPP Steve Clark (Leeds-Grenville).“The premier may have escaped charges, herself, but her hands aren’t clean.”Police began probing the possible violations after Olivier, who records conversations on his iPad or smartphone because he cannot take notes, made public the conversations on Facebook.In one recording, Lougheed said: “The premier wants to talk. They would like to present you options in terms of appointments, jobs, whatever, that you and her and Pat Sorbara could talk about.”Later, Sorbara told Olivier: “We should have the broader discussion about what is it that you’d be most interested in doing … whether it’s a full-time or part-time job in a (constituency) office, whether it is appointments, supports or commissions …”In April, the OPP and prosecutors stayed one count of unlawfully influencing or negotiating appointments and another of counselling an offence not committed against Lougheed.Let's block ads!

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

Cornwall and Area Death Notices - Cornwall Seaway NewsThursday, 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.
