MacKimmie Funeral Home closing after 157 years in business - The Review Newspaper

Thursday, December 14, 2017

At the end of this year, MacKimmie Funeral Home will close its doors, ending the history of the 157-year-old Lachute business.For Richard MacKimmie and his sister, Bonnie, it is the end of a fifth-generation family business and according to Richard, the closure means the loss of yet another of Lachute’s businesses owned by a longstanding English-language family.In a conversation with The Review, Richard said that the decision to close came about for several reasons. The exodus of many anglophones to Ontario during the past few decades led to a decrease in local clientele for the funeral home, Richard noted. And unlike generations past, there were no young family members interested in becoming part of the family business.“My daughter works in Montreal and she is not interested in coming back here to the family business,” Richard said.But it was the death of a close friend which brought Richard to a clear decision.“My sister has been a mainstay of this business, keeping things going with me. But then I got to thinking of the pressure that would fall on my sister if something were to happen to m...

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

Thursday, September 15, 2016

The Sûreté du Québec is investigating after someone tried to murder a high-ranking member of the Hells Angels in Canada while he was riding a motorcycle in Lachute on Saturday.  A police source has confirmed media reports identifying the victim as Philippe Boudreau, the vice-president of the outlaw biker gang’s Nomads chapter based in Ontario. Boudreau was injured in the shooting and was taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries that are not considered life threatening.  A newspaper in Sudbury has identified the victim as an Ontario-based Hells Angel and former Olympic boxer whose name is actually Phillip (Phil) Boudreault, 41, but the Montreal Gazette was unable to confirm this on Sunday.  “It all transpired at around 10:30 in the morning (on Saturday),” said SQ spokesperson Sgt. Daniel Thibodeau. “We were called for possible gunshots on Béthany (Road) in Lachute. Upon arrival we found a man in a ditch. He apparently went off the road while on his motorcycle. Further examinations revealed he had been struck by at least one projectile that was shot in his direction from the suspect vehicle (an old sport utility vehicle).”  Thibodeau...

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...

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.
