He later moved to the Nomads chapter and more recently out to the Mission chapter.Hells Angels from across Canada have been arriving for his memorial service at Vancouver’s Fraserview Hall on Saturday.Vancouver Police Staff Sgt. Randy Fincham said officers will be monitoring the event.“As the Hells Angels are a criminal organization, the VPD has plans in place to reduce the risk to the public. Public safety remains our primary concern,” Fincham said.Clary had a minor criminal record, including convictions for assault and breach of conditions. He was also the subject of a peace bond after allegations of uttering threats.His Facebook page is full of pictures of him wearing bandanas over his mouth, guns and associates flashing their middle fingers.

Tuesday, December 27, 2016

The community of Drake, Sask. is fundraising to help a grieving immigrant family lay their loved one to rest in the Philippines. Kluzy Muyco died in a car accident last month, less than a year after he moved to Saskatchewan from the Philippines with his wife Marilyn and their children Komalym, Kluzy Lyn, Ky Hapym and Khyz Dhara. He was driving home from his job as a cook at Manitou Beach when his vehicle rolled on a grid road. Muyco was the main income earner for his family and they cannot afford to lay him to rest at the family's cemetery in his country of origin.   Because of the travel costs, family members in the Philippines and Canada have also been unable to come together to mourn Muyco's death. Village steps in When people in Drake found out about what had happened, they started a GoFundMe campaign to help cover funeral and travel costs for the family.

Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and Times

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Organizations across Ontario were paying tribute to the victims of last week’s fatal bus crash.The bus carrying the junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a semi truck in northeast Saskatchewan on Friday, killing 15 people and leaving 14 others injured.The fatalities included 10 young teammates, ranging in age from 15 to 21, and five team personnel. Like many people across the country, the Wilsons placed a hockey stick on their porch in what has become a universal tribute to the lost players.The book of condolences is the product of city staff’s collaboration with Brockville’s Irvine Funeral Home.The tragedy also hit close to home for Mike Galbraith, a funeral director at Irvine who helped coordinate the book of condolences.“As a hockey dad, as a parent, as a funeral director, I can appreciate the chaos that’s going on,” he said.“Sometimes, people need an outlet.”Signing a book of condolences is a small way of confronting the powerlessness one feels in the wake of such a tragedy, said Galbraith.“This one’s kind of near and dear to the heart,” he added.“If I had the means and the time, I would fly out there today on a plane and help them out.”The Brockville Braves plan on contributing one dollar from every ticket sold to Tuesday’s Game at the Memorial Centre to a crowdsourcing fund for the victims. Galbraith said another version of the book of condolences will be set up at the arena ahead of that game.“It will all be added to one and sent off at the end of the week,” he added.Some 30 people had signed the city hall book as of mid-afternoon Monday, as word of the tribute began slowly to spread.Some of the people signing came from out of town, including Prescott, Mallorytown, Delta and Kingston.All of the local signatures and messages will be conveyed to Humboldt city hall.Elsewhere locally, organizers of the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend used their Facebook account to post tributes to the Broncos and a link to the crowdsourcing page.Brockville Mayor David Henderson said the scope of the tragedy extends beyond the world of hockey.“I think it was really that they were kids; they’re young kids,” said the mayor.“I think that’s what hits hard at most people.”(With files from Jonathon Brodie and Canadian Press) Let's block ads!
