The Tuesday news briefing: An at-a-glance survey of some top stories - Nanaimo News NOW

Friday, June 2, 2017

Marion Buller, the first female First Nations judge in B.C., and four other commissioners. The commission is set to hold its first public hearing May 29 in Whitehorse but other community meetings won't take place until later this fall at the earliest. A spokesperson for the inquiry says the chief commissioner needs to time to carefully consider the contents of the letter before she can respond publicly to the concerns raised in it.———BODY OF CANADIAN KILLED IN SYRIA BACK HOME SOON: The mother of a Canadian man killed while fighting Islamic State militants in Syria says his body will soon be back on Canadian soil. Tina Martino, of Niagara Falls, Ont., says a Kurdish group that fought alongside her son, Nazzareno Tassone, recovered his body and will be arranging to fly it back to Canada in the coming weeks. The 24-year-old died in December while fighting the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in the northern Syrian city of Raqqa. The leader of a Kurdish community centre in Toronto that's been working with the family says Tassone's body was recovered on Saturday after ISIL fighters abandoned the site where it was being kept. Martino says she spent the past five months hoping her son's body would be recovered so she could give him a proper funeral.———TEEN IN LA LOCHE, SASK., KILLING WAS SHOT 11 TIMES: A sentencing hearing for a teenager convicted in a deadly shooting at a school and a home in northern Saskatchewan has been told that one of the victims was shot 11 times. Dayne Fontaine, who was 17, was killed along with his younger brother at a house in La Loche in January 2016. The hearing in Meadow Lake, Sask., has been told that Dayne said: "Don't shoot me" and "I don't want to die" before he was shot. His 13-year-old brother Drayden was shot twice in the face and the head. The shooter then went to the high school where he killed a teacher and an aide, and wounded seven other people. The teen has pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of second-degree murder and seven counts of attempted murder. He can't be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act because he was 17 at the time of the shooting. Two weeks have been set aside to determine if the killer should be sentenced as a youth or an adult.———GREENS PLAN 'CHESS MOVES' AFTER B.C. VOTE: While British Columbia's Liberals and New Democrats are gridlocked as they await the final ballot count from last week's tight election, the Green party is setting priorities to use the leverage its three newly elected members achieved. The splintered election result could leave the upstart Greens with the balance of power in a minority government, and leader Andrew Weaver is pondering a series of chess moves that could shake the direction of the province. Green party deputy leader Matt Toner says they are looking for specific proposals from the Liberals and New Democrats on electoral and campaign-finance reforms before supporting either party in the legislature.

Conservation group says Alberta grizzly, Bear 148, shot dead in BC - CTV News

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Calgary this summer to a remote park in northwest Alberta. Stephen Legault of the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative said Bear 148 was shot by a hunter on Sunday after wandering into British Columbia from its new home. Legault said the bear was just becoming old enough to have cubs. "What is really sad is that we have lost the potential that this grizzly bear represented for the further recovery of the threatened species in Alberta," he said Wednesday. He noted that grizzly bears are often killed after being struck on highways and by trains. "The fact that this bear was killed by a hunter illustrates the fact that there are many threats to these animals." The B.C. government plans to ban the killing of grizzly bears for trophy, but not until after this hunting season. Parks Canada and the Alberta government later confirmed the death of Bear 148. "This outcome underlines the need for more collaboration across jurisdictions to co-ordinate wildlife and people management at a landscape level," Parks Canada said in an email. Bear 148 was moved in July from its range near Banff and Canmore, Alta., to Kakwa Wildland Park. The bear never hurt anyone but had gotten too close to people dozens of times since it was born in the Banff National Park area six years ago. Over the summer the grizzly strayed onto a rugby field during a practice, ch...

Spend it while you are alive: Manitobans find ways to save on funeral costs - CBC.ca

Friday, March 17, 2017

Do it when you are alive'The couple decided to go on a holiday to Sioux Falls, S.D., and to Dawson City, Yukon, to pan for gold instead of spending the money on a funeral."My wife was sitting there and she says, 'I'm not going to spend all this money when I'm dead. If you want to spend money, do it when you are alive,'" Marcel said."We travelled for three weeks and, you know, she was just wide open to this," he added.The travelling plan didn't sit well with the funeral home they went to, Marcel said. The couple was pressured to buy multiple items but refused."They wanted to sell me an urn for $1,000 and I said, 'No. My brother-in-law is a carpenter and he will build one.' But I looked at my bill and they put the ashes in a plastic bag and they charged me — they called it a Belmont Cremation container — $445," Marcel said.Marcel ended up spending about $4,800 on cremation and the only other costs were cards and a fee to rent a hall himself.He figured if he went with the funeral home's suggestions he would have ended spending at least $10,000.One of the big costs when it comes to a funeral can be a casket. The Marketplace investigation showed that some funeral homes say a $1,195 plain wooden casket isn't appropriate and is "simply an identification container." Staff at those locations told undercover reporters to rent a traditional hardwood casket at a cost of more than $2,200 a day.Caskets are often available at substantially lower prices from specialist retailers like Rick Zerbe Cornelsen in Winnipeg.'We have a very human exchange here'Cornelsen has been running The Village Casketmaker out the back of his South Osborne home for about 13 years."I enjoy it when families come in here. There is a kind of authenticity to that moment," Cornelsen said on CBC's Information Radio on Tuesday."People, when they are dealing with a death in the family, some of their defences are down, some of the pretences are set aside and quite often we have a very human exchange here, even if I don't know the people ahead of time."Cornelsen grew up in a woodworking family and started thinking of the casket business when he was quite you...
