Humboldt Broncos tragedy: Memorials flourish where hockey players lived and where they died - Saskatoon StarPhoenixThursday, April 12, 2018
Where just a few days ago a wall of international media parked itself in front of the arena’s front doors, one lone television reporter stands outside in the freezing wind as he files a report for his cameraman.Still, the people keep coming, sometimes alone, sometimes in pairs and groups. As the GoFundMe campaign for the team rises above the $8 million mark on this day, those on the ground bring their floral bouquets to set on the rink’s ice, the shrine to those 16 who lost their lives following the crash last Friday growing larger by the hour.“I had to come and see it for myself,” says Al Lemoignan, who drove a good two hours from Moose Jaw to visit the crash site and arena.“I put flowers at the crash site, too,” he says. “Now I’m going to go buy Humboldt strong T-shirts for my grandkids.”As the city of nearly 6,000 souls prepares for the funerals that will begin on Thursday, a hush has fallen on Humboldt.The students of the area schools have returned to class; the local shops on the main street are open, but foot and vehicle traffic are slow, partly due to the frigid front that blows into town, prompting a weather alert.Still, throughout this community and along the route where the horrific crash between the team bus and a semi-truck took place, the tributes speak loudly of the grief and sympathy that has descended upon the region.Nearly every single storefront in town is painted in green and yellow, with phrases like “Pray for Humboldt” and “Humboldt Strong” written on the windows.

Cape Breton politician known for his ties to Strait area - Cape Breton PostThursday, December 14, 2017
His health was failing and he would have challenges but his mind was as clear as the day. He’d always made a habit of watching legislative television when the house was sitting and keeping abreast of current affairs. It was always very helpful but it was always educational to go and visit him.“When he left elected office he certainly didn’t leave politics behind, that’s for sure.”Doucet, 80, died Thursday in Halifax. Born in Grand Étang in 1937, he graduated from St. Francis Xavier University and went on to earn a law degree from Dalhousie University in 1961. He was first elected as the member for Richmond to the Nova Scotia Legislature when he was 26 years old and he became a cabinet minister nine months later. He was the first Acadian cabinet minister in the province’s history. He served as the minister of education, minister of youth, provincial secretary and minister of emergency measures.He owned CIGO in Port Hawkesbury between 1975 and 1985 and that’s where present station president Bob MacEachern first met him.“I was an employee of his company for about six years,” said MacEachern on Friday. “I didn’t work closely with him — I got to know him after that.”MacEachern said Doucet may have left Cape Breton to work as a lawyer in Halifax and as a consultant in Ottawa but the Strait area was never far from his mind.“He was always very much connecte...
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. 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.

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...
