CANADA: Experts say Halifax fire deaths could prompt new safety measures - BarrieToday

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Mike Holmes, one of Canada's leading contractors and a well-known television host, said Monday new homes should be built with fire-resistant products to slow down the spread of a fire. Holmes said older homes were built with hardwoods and older lumber with tighter grains that are more resistant to "flame spread." He said the young wood used in new homes is more flammable. "We can build with wood, we just need to treat it," he said. "We have products that can treat it, there is a pink spray, there is a blue spray, there are sprays that can help reduce the risk of a flash burn." Holmes said building codes are a minimum standard, and that homeowners could demand higher standards, including fire-resistant products, from builders. "We tend to not pay attention to things until there is a catastrophe," he said. "This should be a wake up call that we need to take things more seriously." Holmes said without the use of more fire-resistant materials and products, sprinkler systems may be an option for some homeowners. "I don't want to introduce more plumbing in a home that I'm trying to keep dry," he said. "However, if we're not going to use fire-resistant products maybe we should enforce a sprinkler system ... to build a home that just won't burn like that house did." Rizcallah said the Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes examined residential sprinklers about a year ago. "Sprinklers will reduce the risk of injury and fire loss and potentially fatalities in homes based on what we know and what we've seen," he said. Still, he said the commission found there wasn't enough evidence to mandate sprinklers in all new homes, though sprinkler standards were created. The first national building code was issued in 1940, and Rizcallah said it's updated every five years based on the latest research and technology. Although he said homes are significantly safer than they were 20 years ago, he said homeowners should take precautions, including having interconnected smoke alarms on every floor of a house, limiting combustibles, and having a fire exit plan. Rizcallah said the latest building code requires smoke alarms in every bedroom and on every level of a home. The Barho family arrived in Canada 18 months ago as Syrian refugees. The fire last Tuesday claimed the lives of teenager Ahmad; Rola, 12; Mohamad, 9; Ola, 8; Hala, 3; Rana, 2; and Abdullah, who was born in Canada on Nov. 9. The children's father, Ebraheim Barho, remained in hospital recovering from extensive burns. Their mother, Kawthar Barho, emerged from seclusion Saturday for a public funeral attended by 2,000 people. - Brett Bundale, The Canadian Press Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Fire deaths could prompt new safety measures, upgraded building code: experts - Burnaby Now

Humboldt Broncos tragedy: Memorials flourish where hockey players lived and where they died - Saskatoon StarPhoenix

Thursday, 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. Along a stretch ...

Saturday, March 2, 2019

DND photo. The Canadian military is dealing with 17 cases of streptococcal infection at its recruit facilities in Saint-Jean, Quebec, the second such outbreak in less than a year.The cases of Group A Streptococcus bacterial infection, also called GAS, were identified among the roughly 1,500 recruits at Canadian Forces Leadership and Recruit School. The Canadian Forces Health Services is monitoring the increase in cases of GAS pharyngitis, also known as strep throat, Canadian Forces spokesman Maj. Travis Smyth said. There have been no serious cases of GAS infection and no hospitalized cases.In early April, Postmedia reported that more than 1,800 military personnel had been given antibiotics after an outbreak of streptococcal infections at the same military facility. Six recruits from the Saint-Jean Garrison were hospitalized. Of those there was one confirmed invasive Group A Streptococcal (GAS) case and one probable invasive GAS case, according to the Department of National Defence.The garrison, located in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que., is the basic training base for recruits in the Canadian Forces.Smyth said antibiotics are being provided ...

Body found in Mexico probably that of Christine St-Onge, SQ says - Montreal Gazette

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Laval resident Christine St-Onge, 41, who went missing in Mexico on Dec. 5, 2018. The body of a woman believed to be that of a Quebecer missing in Mexico for more than a week was found near a hotel in Los Cabos, provincial police said on Thursday.Laval's Christine St-Onge, 41, had been missing since Dec. 4.Sgt. Claude Denis, a spokesperson for the Sûreté du Québec, said although an autopsy was already performed in Mexico, a second autopsy will have to be done when the body returns to Quebec to determine the cause of death and to formally identify the body.Denis said investigators had already informed St-Onge's family of the discovery.Denis said the investigation is complicated because SQ investigators are far from where the body was found. An RCMP liaison officer is now on site, which will make it easier to communicate with local authorities, he said. The RCMP will have to positively identify the body and then arrange for it to be repatriated.BCS Noticias, a Mexican news website, quoted local police as saying it appeared the woman had died as a result of cranial trauma and that blood stains had been found in the hotel room where she was staying. They estimated she had been dead for at least five days.RelatedThe woman's body, which appears to bear marks of violence, was found near the hotel where St-Onge had been vacationing since Nov. 29 with a male co...
