Sask. funeral homes gathering messages of support for Humboldt crash victims - CTV NewsThursday, April 12, 2018
Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team collided with a transport truck on the way to one of the team’s games. The crash killed 15 people in the bus and injured 14 others.
Arbor Memorial’s locations in Prince Albert, Regina and Saskatoon are collecting messages of condolence for the victims, which will be printed into 30 books and given to the team and the 29 victims’ families.
“You have people who, they've lost the joy,” Jeff Weafer, managing director for Arbor Memorial, told CTV Saskatoon. “We felt that one way we could try and reach out and support the people in our communities was by giving them an opportunity to express their grief.”
So far, the funeral homes have received written and digital messages from as far away as Nova Scotia and as nearby as their own staff.
“We have a colleague who had a relative on that bus, so it is very personal,” Weafer said.
The funeral homes will collect messages until April 20.With a report from CTV Saskatoon’s Laura WoodwardLet's block ads! (Why?)...
'A part of me has died': Family of murdered baby reads victim impact statements - CTV NewsThursday, December 14, 2017
Kilburn Hall in Saskatoon and roamed the streets in Saskatoon looking for a place to say. She told a woman she escaped from a group home in Prince Albert. The stranger gave her food, clothing and tried to take her to EGADZ, a youth centre, but it was closed, according to an agreed statement of facts.
The woman eventually took the teen a home in the 200 block of Waterloo Crescent, where Nikosis and his family lived. The teen had never met anyone in the home prior but they agreed to let her stay there.
Last week court watched a video which showed the teen explaining to police in great detail, how she choked, punched, kicked and stabbed Nikosis with a metal nail.
I was holding that baby, rocking him like a mom,” she said in the video. She was in the room for about five minutes before she beat him. “I just started choking him and punching his head in.”
The teen said she took all her anger out on the baby.
“I was sick and tired of life,” she said. “That’s why I hurt that baby and I killed it.”
Lawyers in the case are scheduled to present their closing arguments in the adult sentencing hearing Friday.Angelina Irinici is in court for the hearing:

Somali community awaits answers in kindergartener's death - News Talk 980 CJMEThursday, September 14, 2017
Saskatoon Somali Community president Shafii Mohamed told 650 CKOM Wednesday the kindergartener’s family was new to Saskatoon, having moved from Prince Albert in early July.“He was a special child,” Mohamed said. “We can’t believe we lost a child.”He noted Elmmi was autistic and may have needed one-on-one supervision, though it was unclear what the school had arranged for the boy.Elmmi was reported missing Monday morning as recess at the school came to an end around 10:50 a.m. Police found him shortly after in a retention pond about 100 metres from the playground.The boy was taken to hospital by MD Ambulance as paramedics attempted to resuscitate him, but he was pronounced dead at Royal University Hospital early in the afternoon.The community leader said there was mounting frustration from the family over a lack of communication with Saskatoon Public Schools.“They didn’t reach out to (the family), they didn’t offer support,” Mohamed said. “The parents were left in the dark … it’s not helping the situation.”In an email to 650 CKOM, school division spokesperson Veronica Baker said there were attempts to contact the family within 24 hours to offer condolences. She added board trustees and staff attended Elmmi’s funeral, and the Director of Education, Barry MacDougall, was invited to the family’s home Wednesday morning.Baker said MacDougall shared what the school div...
Cars and Saskatchewan places share names - Regina Leader-PostWednesday, July 05, 2017
North Battleford, was a Plymouth model in the 1950s.Pinto, just east of Roche Percee in the southeast, was Ford’s subcompact of the 1970s and ’80s.Ranger, 150 kms northwest of Prince Albert, was a compact Ford pickup truck from the 1980s to the 2000s.And then there is Peerless, a hamlet just south of Goodsoil, about 60 km northwest of Meadow Lake. Peerless is also the name of a luxury car produced from 1900 to 1931 that competed with Pierce-Arrow and Packard.However, the community of Peerless was not named after the car — but it was named after an automotive-related product. The name came from a brand of oil marketed by the British-American Oil Company.In the book What’s in a Name — The Story Behind Saskatchewan Place Names, E.T. Russell writes that a local storekeeper was trying to get a post office and had to suggest a name. Russell says a Mrs. Francis Hankey of nearby Goodsoil wrote: “It so happened that a B.A. gasoline truck was driving by, and they sell an oil by the name of Peerless, and this was advertised on the truck in big letters. Well, there was the answer to the storekeeper’s problem. Why not call that place ‘Peerless’? Other residents agreed that the name was fine, and so the name stuck.” So it turns out that a good name for a car — or a motor oil — can also make a good name for a community, and vice versa.Let's block ads!

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