Funeral held in Etobicoke for 11-year-old Riya Rajkumar - CP24 Toronto's Breaking News

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Priya Ramdin. Ramdin described her daughter as her "best friend." She said Riya was a "dreamer" who wanted to become a doctor one day. She was a fan of Drake and "could beat anyone at a card game of speed," her mother said. "She touched a lot of lives with her laughter and contagious big smile. It breaks my heart to know that I will no longer be seeing that smile," Ramdin wrote. "She was so excited for her birthday, looking forward to having dinner later that evening. Never did I think that my daughter would not return back to me." Speaking to CP24 outside the funeral home on Wednesday morning, Naz Fazal, a distant relative of Riya, described the little girl as "an amazing child" who was "full of energy" and "full of laughter." "Words cannot describe what they (Riya's family) are feeling right now-the loss, the pain, the questions," Fazal said. Rose Usman, a friend of Riya's family, told CP24 that the Grade 5 student was "always happy" and "smiling." "(There was) never a shy moment with her," Usman said. Riya's kindergarten teacher Samira Kassam, who also attended the funeral, said she "can't imagine" the pain Riya's mother is going through right now. "It's heartbreaking to know that a tragedy like this could actually happen to such an innocent girl," Kassam said. Police previously told reporters that an investigation into Riya's abduction was launched at around 7 p.m. last Thursday night. Riya, police said, was out celebrating her birthday with her father but did not return to her mother's home at the agreed upon time. Investigators said the child's mother notified police and told officers that Riya's father, 41-year-old Roopesh Rajkumar, made comments indicating that he planned to harm himself and his daughter. An Amber Alert was issued for Riya at around 11:30 p.m. A short time later, police confirmed Riya's lifeless body had been located in her father's basement apartment in Brampton. Her father was arrested during a high-risk takedown at around midnight in the area of Highway 11 near Orillia. He has been charged with first-degree murder but remains in hospital while he receives treatment for a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to police. Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Candlelight vigil held for 11-year-old Riya Rajkumar in Brampton - CP24 Toronto's Breaking News

Saturday, March 02, 2019

Chris McCord read a statement on behalf of Riya's mother, Priya Ramdin. "She was a social butterfly who loved to spend time with family and friends. She was a great dancer and singer. She loved Drake and could beat anyone at a card game of speed. She touched a lot of lives with her laughter and contagious big smile. It breaks my heart to know I will no longer be seeing that smile, hearing her voice and knowing I will never have her in my arms again," Ramdin's statement read. "I can't believe that she is no longer here with me. I remember our last moments on her birthday Feb. 14. Earlier that day we went to do our nails and her choice of colour was red. She was so excited for her birthday, looking forward to having dinner later that evening. Never did I think that my daughter would not return back to me." In her statement, Ramdin said Riya wanted to become a doctor, drive a Lamborghini, and own a mansion. Attendees of the vigil voiced their support for Riya's mother and shared their condolences. "Honestly my heart is just broken. It was absolutely just horrible what happened to her. I feel for her mother, as a mother myself I could not imagine what she is going through," an attendee of the vigil told CP24. "Every time I see a post about her online my eyes tear up and I hug my son because it's just heartbreaking. I just want her mother to know that the community is here to support her. I just wanted to be here to honour this little girl." Peel Regional Police launched an investigation into the abduction of Riya at around 7 p.m. on Feb. 14.

‘Write me soon. Stay safe’: A story of Canada’s opioid crisis, told in letters from prison - The Globe and Mail

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Herd. His mother and sisters called him Manie – little man – because he was the only boy in the family. Story continues below advertisement He was torn away from his home on Saskatchewan's Peepeekisis First Nation to be educated in church-run residential schools, emerging scarred by sexual and physical abuse. For years, he would cross the street to avoid passing a Catholic church. A skilled outdoorsman who liked to fish for pike and hunt deer, beaver, bear and moose, he fell into a pattern of drinking, drug taking and fighting that kept him behind bars for most of his adult life. Pictures in an album show Mr. Daniels as an adult; a tattoo on Ms. Barber's back, below, shows him as a child. Tijana Martin/The Globe and Mail Moira Barber, his common-law wife for 13 years, met him when she was dealing drugs in Guelph, Ont., and needed someone to collect money for her. She asked for the hardest, meanest dude in town. But Mr. Daniels had another side, Ms. Barber says. He was a keen artist who sometimes drew tattoos for a living. He loved roughhousing with her grandchildren, rolling around with them gleefully until the long hair that stretched down his back was a tangled mess. Mr. Kell grew up in London, Ont., 90 minutes down the 401 highway from Mr. Daniels. He started using drugs when he was a teenager. Before long, he was dealing cannabis and injecting hard stuff. As he puts it now, he would keep using until he ended up in the back of a police car. Between some 20 incarcerations, he tried over and over to get clean. He suffered several overdoses, coming close to death. In Spencer Kell's dining room, angel and devil portraits drawn by Mr. Daniels hang behind him. Blair Gable Mr. Kell and Mr. Daniels forged their friendship during two stints sharing a cell at Maplehurst. On the range at "the Hurst," they won respect for their experience and toughness. Mr. Daniels had an ugly temper. He could flip on you in a second, Mr. Kell says. But he stuck up for the underdogs, especially the new guys. Mr. Kell looked up to Mr. D...
