Laval’s Matthew Schreindorfer shares sad news in Facebook post

Written by admin on 27/07/2019 Categories: 广州桑拿网

MONTREAL – For Laval’s Matthew Schreindorfer, it looked as though 2015 would end on a high note.

In August 2014, just two months after getting married to his high school sweetheart, Schreindorfer was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

After treatment failed in Quebec, he took part in a costly experimental treatment in New York while his wife, Katia Luciani, turned to the generosity of strangers to save the love of her life.

The expensive gene therapy was funded by an online campaign organised by Luciani that raised over $800,000.

He then underwent a successful bone marrow transplant and in October of 2015, was given a clean bill of health.

    A year after devastating diagnosis, Laval’s Matthew Schreindorfer free of cancer

    The couple was slowly starting to enjoy a return to normal life, looking forward to spending the Christmas holidays together. However, a routine 6-month post transplant bone marrow biopsy on Dec. 9, 2015, changed all that.

    In a Facbook post, Schreindorfer said “I feared the worst, and sadly the worst was confirmed.”

    Doctors announced the cancer was back.

    Schriendorfer spent the greater part of the holidays in hospital, mostly in isolation. The hope is that he will qualify for CAR-T cell immunotherapy treatment at the government-run National Institute of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland.

    Sadly, the treatment is still not available locally, but Schreindorfer and Lucaini have been working tirelessly to change that.

Canada Post suspends community mailbox program

Written by admin on 26/07/2019 Categories: 广州桑拿网

Canada Post announced Monday it was temporarily suspending its conversion of door-to-door mail delivery to community mailboxes, in a move that will affect about 460,000 addresses across the country. The union representing postal workers said it’s “ecstatic” but hopes to see restored service for those who’ve already lost home delivery.

“All conversions planned for November and December 2015 and those announced for 2016 will be placed on hold,” said a statement from spokesperson Anick Losier.

Canada Post said it would work with the federal government to create a plan, and customers impacted will receive a letter within the next few weeks, “advising them of the status of their mail delivery service.”

“In neighbourhoods where the 10-month internal and community conversion process is complete, customers will collect mail and parcels at their community mailbox,” said the statement. “This includes customers set to begin receiving their mail and parcels in their boxes in October.”

The union representing postal workers had been urging Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau to contact Canada Post to halt the process. Canadian Union of Postal Workers national president Mike Palecek said his group had been campaigning for the change for over a year and a half, and called Monday’s announcement “a complete reversal of [Canada Post’s] position.”

“Unfortunately it’s too late for the tens of thousands who lost their door-to-door delivery this morning,” he said, adding the union will be pushing for a public review of Canada Post’s mandate.

“The Liberals have promised to have a study about the role of Canada Post. We want to make sure that’s done in a public manner so the public can have input into this, because after all, Canada Post is owned by the public.”

Trudeau promised during the election campaign to reverse cuts to door-to-door mail delivery that were begun under the Harper Conservative government. A Liberal Party spokesperson would not confirm if Canada Post had received direction from the new government Monday, but referred Global News to its platform, which promises to maintain door-to-door delivery.

There have been several protests against the box installations since the federal election, with some people standing or lying on dirt piles to prevent workers from placing cement foundations for the mailboxes.

Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre even took a jackhammer to a slab of concrete designated for a community mailbox in Pierrefonds-Roxboro back in August. Watch the video of his protest below:

Owner of Fuzz, the malnourished cat euthanized last month, charged under Animal Protection Act

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

HALIFAX – The owner of “Fuzz” the cat, who was brought to a vet and euthanized last month, has been charged under the Animal Protection Act.

Fuzz was brought to the Lady Hammond Animal Hospital on September 13, very ill and in bad physical shape.

Kim Jenkins, owner of the cat, has been charged with failing to provide the animal with adequate medical attention when the animal was wounded or ill and issued a ticket for $406.45.


“We took the cat to the Department of Agriculture and had a necropsy performed, and, based on the results of the necropsy and our findings, we decided that it was appropriate to charge the owner,” said Jo Anne Landsburg, Chief Provincial Inspector of the NS SPCA.

Kara Jenkins, daughter of Kim, made a public plea for her cat after not having seen him for a while.

Sarah Fraser admitted on 广州桑拿网 to having brought Fuzz to the vet and that the cat had been euthanized shortly after.

The SPCA launched an investigation into the matter.

READ MORE: Halifax woman upset after her cat was mistakenly euthanized

“I decided the most humane thing to do would be to euthanize the cat,” Fraser wrote in a post on 广州桑拿网, explaining her decision.

The post explained that Fraser believed Fuzz was a stray, and that she brought the cat to the veterinarian out of concern for her health and safety.

Today, Fraser said she was feeling  “very vindicated” by the process. “There was a lot of doubt, I think before, and, if anything, this really proves what terrible condition the cat was really in and that the right decisions were made,” said Fraser, who added that, since Global News broke the story last month, her family has received threats of physical harm.

In September, the veterinarian who examined the cat said it was in very bad shape. “It was very malnourished, had matted fur all over the body, high grade heart murmur, open-mouthed breathing, extremely emaciated and dehydrated, gingival bleeding with many rotten teeth,” Dr. Umer Khan of the Lady Hammond Animal Hospital told Global News in September.

After further examination, Dr. Khan said the cat was in extreme pain, and eventually it was recommended that the cat be put down, a decision that Kara Jenkins did not agree with.

“We should have been responsible to make that decision, not a stranger,” Kara Jenkins said in September. “I think there needs to be some sort of justice served.”

Halifax Regional Police also launched an investigation into the matter, but they concluded their investigation and didn’t lay any charges.

If you find an animal in need of care, The NS SPCA asks that you contact them at 1 (888) 703-7722.

In Tofino community reeling from fatal boat accident, whale watching is big business

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

Tofino, on the west coast of British Columbia’s Vancouver Island, is one of Canada’s most sought-after destinations.

Tourists from around the world descend on the small community of just under 2,000 residents for surfing, hiking, fishing, and whale watching every year.  Tofino is also surrounded by national and provincial parks including the Pacific Rim National Park preserve featuring Long Beach a popular year-round destination.


READ MORE: Boat with 27 people on board sinks off B.C. coast; five British nationals confirmed dead

An estimated 430,000 cetacean-seekers visited B.C. in 2008, according to the International Fund for Animal Welfare, generating more than $113 million for local economies through direct and indirect contributions. Tourism is big business for the province of British Columbia generating $13.5 billion in revenues in 2012 for the province, according to 2013 B.C. Statistics, the most recent available.

The Torino-Ucluelet area is just one of many established whale-watching industries in the area.

But on Sunday tragedy struck when the whale-watching boat Leviathan II sank near Vargas Island, just west of Tofino, with 27 people on board. At least five people were killed. The search for one person who was still missing was called off Sunday night and the RCMP was handling it as a missing-person case.

British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond confirmed in a statement that the five killed were U.K. nationals. He said consular officials in British Columbia were supporting family members of those who died.

“My thoughts are with the family and friends of all those affected by this terrible accident,” Hammond said.

James Bray, owner of Jamie’s Whaling Station, which operated the vessel, said in a statement he’s “heartbroken” by the incident.

“It has been a tragic day. Our entire team is heartbroken over this incident and our hearts go out to the families, friends and loved ones of everyone involved,” he said in a statement Monday.

“We are doing everything we can to assist our passengers and staff through this difficult time. We are cooperating with investigators to determine exactly what happened.”

But this isn’t the company’s first fatal accident: In 1998 a boat was swamped, leaving the operator and one passenger dead.

The Transportation Safety Board is investigating the incident.

UDPATE: Penticton Search and Rescue targeted by thieves

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

UPDATE: There is a bright spot in a recent break-in that took place at Penticton Search and Rescue (PENSAR).

Penticton Honda Centre is donating a brand new 1,000 watt Honda Generator to PENSAR after hearing about the group’s recent theft.

“We sell outdoor equipment; some people get lost; it’s an important thing that we help out by getting [PENSAR] a new generator to get them looked after,” says store manager Glen Hall.


PENSAR says the generator may not be a specialized piece of equipment, but it is a valuable one that assists volunteers to charge car batteries, flood lights and other gear during searches.

PENTICTON–Penticton Search and Rescue (PENSAR) members are shocked to find they have been targeted by thieves.

The members met for training early Saturday morning at their hall, only to find two of their trailers had been broken into.

The culprits made off with a 1,000 watt Honda generator and a number of gas cans used for the UTV’s.

” It’s certainly disheartening considering we are a volunteer and self funded organization. Everyone here gives so much to help others,” says Dale Jorgensen, President of PENSAR.

Now besides having to spend money on a new generator, the team will be looking at adding more security measures.

PENSAR is hopeful someone in the community has information on the theft, and will contact the Penticton RCMP or Crimestoppers.

The serial number of the generator is EZGA 116325.

Take your Halloween entertaining to the next level with these tutorials

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

Hosting a Halloween party this week? There are a few easy DIY decor and menu ideas you can use to make your shindig “spooktacular.”

Sara Lynn Cauchon, aka The Domestic Geek on YouTube (where she has nearly quadruple the following of Martha Stewart), really set the bar with her epic feast.

The whole setup took her five days, but she’s confident you won’t need that long.

“You can definitely pull that off in an afternoon if you had some extra hands.”

Part 1 of her Haunted Hallowed Party tutorial, which covers all the little devilish decor details, has been viewed more than 25,000 times in less than 24 hours.

Here are her tips for how you can pull off what she did:

1. Scour your house

“There’s nothing you can’t do with a mason jar, in my humble opinion.”

Anything in your home that looks old or antique could work. If you can’t find anything, drop by a thrift shop for some vintage decanters.

2. Hit a dollar store

“I have to say the dollar store has really upped its game.”

You can probably find close to everything you’ll need there. Even if something doesn’t look exactly like you want it to right out of the bag, a little imagination and creativity goes a long way. Cauchon’s black creepy-crawly place-mats, for instance, called for some super glue and spray paint. Cauchon glued the small snakes together to form a place-mat. They originally looked like this:

3. Stock up on candles

The candles give the skeletons a ghoulish glow.

The Domestic Geek, YouTube

“Candles are so inexpensive but so creepy.”

The more candles you can add, the better. They really set the mood.

“Anything liquid looks incredible by candlelight,” she adds.

4. Menu

Poison apples are a sinister twist on candied apples.

The Domestic Geek, YouTube

The blood-red spider cider is to die for.

The Domestic Geek, YouTube

Oven-roasted brains “that even Hannibal Lecter would approve of.”

The Domestic Geek, YouTube

“Menu is really important.”

Cauchon points out that you tend to see a lot of kid-friendly menus this time of year.

Part 2 of Cauchon’s Haunted Hallowed Party tutorial below offers three “eerie but irresistible recipes that will both spook and satisfy” adults’ tastebuds.

Happy entertaining!

Day one of rotating strikes kicks off in West Island schools

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

PIERREFONDS–Working conditions are so bad that it’s driving people away from the job.

That’s what teachers said during Monday morning’s early protest in Pierrefonds.

Hundreds at the Marguerite Bourgeoys school board walked off the job.

They say they can no longer continue to work under current conditions.

“We have lots of teachers who drop out,” said Grade 4 teacher Nathan Whatley.

“We have a lot of teachers who can’t finish the school year because it’s too hard. We know we have a long summer but it’s not normal to lose employees during the year.”

The provincial government is proposing longer hours and class sizes, cuts to funding and a three percent salary increase.
The union has countered back with a 13.5 per cent salary increase.

“In 20 years we haven’t even had something that’s matched the cost of living so teacher’s salaries have essentially gone down,” said Whatley.

“Even with these little one per cent or 0.5 per cent increases and there is a giant gap. It was created by the government and we’re hoping they step up and bridge it.”

It’s not just teachers who are walking out today. Health professionals were also on the picket lines.

Public sector workers have been without a contract since March 31.

Everyday, the anger grows.

“Frustration is building everyday it’s getting higher and higher,” said David Hamel a union representative.

“We’re getting support from the parents that we haven’t had at this level before so we’re willing to go forward and we’re going to continue our battle.”

Strikes are expected to continue across the province all throughout the week, including at many English school boards.

WATCH: Global’s Jaime Orchard sat down with Martin Coiteux as the week of protests kicked off Monday. The treasury board president tells Global News a solution is possible but not at any cost.

Why Canadians are already cutting back on red meat

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

Canadians are already dialing back on how much beef they consume, a new report suggests, but it’s not for health reasons as much as for financial ones as red meat prices have soared.

According to fresh survey results from the University of Guelph’s Food Institute, 38 per cent of Canadian respondents to the poll said they had reduced or stopped eating beef in the last 12 months.

“Such a percentage seems high—much higher than expected,” the study said. The study didn’t specify the degree to which or amount respondents cut back by.



    Facing leaner times, Alberta’s grocery shoppers ‘trade down’

    But the prime culprit was price, followed by health concerns. Ethical and environmental considerations were also cited by respondents but less so.

    “Prices seem to have had a significant impact on purchase intentions, but so has health and food safety,” the report’s lead researcher, Dr. Sylvain Charlebois, said. “‘Altruistic’ determinants are not as significant.”

    Sixty-two per cent of those polled by the university’s food researcher said rising costs forced them to curb how much beef they consume. About four in ten who said they’ve cut down also did so for health reasons.

    About a quarter said they reduced consumption because of ethical and environmental reasons – a “still statistically significant” number given the timeframe, the report said.

    ‘Prices seem to have had a significant impact on purchase intentions, but so has health and food safety’

    The southwestern Ontario-based university released its data the same day the World Health Organization declared red meat – which includes beef, pork and lamb under its definition – as “probably” carcinogenic. Following an exhaustive review of worldwide research on the link between meat consumption and cancer, the world health body also said there was an even clearer connection between processed meat and colorectal cancers.

    MORE: Processed meat linked to cancer, red meat risky too

    “For an individual, the risk of developing colorectal (bowel) cancer because of their consumption of processed meat remains small, but this risk increases with the amount of meat consumed,” Dr. Kurt Straif  of France-based International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), part of the WHO, said in a statement.

    Red meat, under which the IARC includes beef, lamb and pork, was classified as a “probable” carcinogen in its group 2A list that also contains glyphosate, the active ingredient in many weedkillers.

    Higher prices

    North American beef prices (and to a lesser extent pork) have shot sharply higher over the past couple of years amid a shortage of supply. Droughts dating back to 2012 severely depleted North American cattle herds, experts say, while the PED virus was responsible for destroying hog numbers in the United States two winters ago.

    The average price for a sirloin steak found at a Canadian grocery store was nearly 25 per cent higher in May compared to the same month in 2014, according to Statistics Canada.

    Herd numbers are rebounding, meat industry experts say, which should benefit prices at supermarkets.

    The University of Guelph survey was conducted with 504 respondants aged 18 or older, across the country earlier this month. If found 83.4 per cent of those polled consumed beef at least once a week, while 16.6 per cent “rarely” consumed beef.

    “The majority of respondants consume beef at least once a week,” the study said.

    The findings were preliminary with a fuller report scheduled to be published later this year, Dr. Charlebois said.

Oilpatch firms in for ‘fairly awful’ quarter as crude doldrums linger

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

CALGARY — A bevy of oilsands producers are on deck to report their quarterly earnings over the next few weeks — and industry watchers are under no illusion they’ll be pretty.

It’s been about a year since the price of oil started its nosedive to below US$50 a barrel, and crude has been camping out at that level for months. Few are optimistic that crude will return to triple digits any time soon.

    Canadian Oil Sands adopts ‘poison pill’ to fend off Suncor bid

    READ MORE: Oil drops below $40 U.S. per barrel

    Investors are well aware they’re in for a “fairly awful” quarter, said John Kim, a portfolio manager at Aston Hill Financial.

    Martin Pelletier, portfolio manager at TriVest Wealth Counsel, agrees it’s going to be ugly — but no one should be surprised by the results.

    “I wouldn’t use the word disappointing because a lot of analysts are already expecting the worst,” he said.

    Oilsands giant Suncor Energy posts its earnings Wednesday night and its reluctant takeover target, Canadian Oil Sands Ltd. reports on Thursday, along with crude producer Cenovus Energy. Husky Energy and Imperial Oil release their third-quarter results on Friday.

    Oil and gas heavyweight Canadian Natural Resources Ltd., along with pipeline builders TransCanada Corp. and Enbridge Inc. are slated for the following week.

    The focus for investors will be less on the results themselves than on how the companies plan to cope.

    Pelletier said he’ll be watching out for announcements that firms are looking at “strategic alternatives” — another way to say they’re “waving the white flag.”

    READ MORE: Alberta Premier Notley creates advisory panel to improve, diversify economy

    In a strategic alternatives process, companies hire outside advisers to help them weigh their options. That could include divesting assets as a means to pay down debt or putting a “for sale” sign on the whole company, among other things.

    Suncor’s hostile $4.3-billion bid for Canadian Oil Sands, launched earlier this month, is likely an anomaly, said Aston Hill’s Kim. Deals in the tight-knit oilpatch tend to be friendly.

    When executives discuss their strategy on quarterly conference calls in the coming weeks, Kim said he’s expecting talk to centre on buying and selling individual properties rather than outright takeovers.

    “You have to have a really, really good balance sheet for you to want to buy another company,” he said. “You have to have a view that oil prices are higher six to 12 months down the road at least.”

    READ MORE: Suncor launches $4.3 billion takeover bid for Canadian Oil Sands

    The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers has estimated 36,000 jobs have been lost in Canada’s oil and gas industry this year, mostly in Alberta.

    When they announce their earnings, firms may also hint at what their spending plans may look like in 2016.

    TIMELINE: Tracking the layoffs in Alberta’s oilpatch

    Samir Kayande, head of energy research at ITG Investment Research, said he’s expecting spending to be “bare bones” next year, much like 2015.

    Any deferrals of new projects resulting from the crude downturn likely would have taken place by now.

    The question is how much deeper firms can cut costs at the operations they have up and running.

    “Companies are like people,” said Kayande. “You don’t really find out what they’re capable of until you put them under tremendous pressure.”
