The death of Calvin Kenny, from Fermeuse, N.L., is being investigated as a homicide, police confirmed Tuesday.

Kenny, 27, was serving a 12½-year sentence at Atlantic Institution in Renous, N.B., for the 2016 death of  Steven Miller.

RCMP were called to the prison on Monday just before 10:30 a.m., after Kenny was found “badly injured in his cell,” according to a press release issued Tuesday afternoon.

The Major Crimes unit is taking over the investigation, and an autopsy will be performed to determine cause of death.

Family confirmed to CBC News Monday night that Kenny had died while in prison.

“My heart is broken,” wrote Kayla Grace, Kenny’s sister, in a post on Facebook.

A statement from Correctional Service Canada sent Tuesday afternoon said it is reviewing the circumstances of Kenny’s death.

Kenny was one of four men charged in the death of Steven Miller in Conception Bay South back in 2016.

He and Chesley Lucas were originally charged with first-degree murder, but pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

Paul Connolly was also initially charged with first-degree murder, but later pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

Kyle Morgan pleaded guilty to being an accessory after the fact to Miller’s killing. 

Back in 2017, Kenny was awaiting sentencing at Her Majesty’s Penitentiary in St. John’s.

He spoke to CBC News at the time, criticizing the state of Newfoundland and Labrador’s largest, and oldest, jail, saying inmates leave HMP “far worse off” then when they go in.

Watch Kenny’s interview, where he talks about how his life got “messed up beyond recognition,” in the media player below.

Biometric Vaccines Are Here Preceding Forced Digital ID

The future of vaccines is here, just in time for the coming forced digital ID. This isn’t some sci-fi movie based on some conspiracy theorists’ idea of Revelation where every living being is required to be tagged. Biometric vaccines are real, are in use and have been deployed in the United States.

Biometric vaccines are immunizations laced with digital biometrics, created from merging the tech industry with big pharma. This new form of vaccine injects microchips into the body creating a global ID matrix to track and control every person. Not only has this satanic system already been rolled out, billions may already have been injected unaware.

ID2020 Alliance, a program aimed at chipping every person on earth, has collaborated with GAVI (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations) to inject these microchips into the body through immunization.

Where to Live Now: A data-driven look at Ottawa neighbourhoods

Editor

What does community have to do with buying a house? Do people really want friendly neighbours, or do they just want the most square footage for their buck?

In The Village Effect: How Face-to-Face Contact Can Make Us Healthier, Happier and Smarter, Montreal psychologist Susan Pinker cited a 2010 study conducted at Brigham Young University in Idaho that analyzed relationship data for more than 300,000 people over nearly eight years. She discovered that people who were integrated into their communities had half the risk of dying during that time as those who led more solitary lives. In Pinker’s analysis, integration meant simple interactions such as exchanging baked goods, babysitting, borrowing tools, and spur-of-the-moment visits — exactly the kinds of exchanges we saw grow when COVID-19 forced us all to stay home.

For this year’s real estate feature in the Spring/Summer 2020 print edition, we crunched the numbers to find the neighbourhoods where we think you’re most likely to find such opportunities for engagement. Using data available through the Ottawa Neighbourhood Study (ONS), we chose six indicators that we believed would attract those looking to connect with the people around them. Omitting rural areas, we awarded points to each neighbourhood according to where it landed in the ranking. (In the event of a tie, we used a secondary indicator of the same theme to refine the ranking.) You’ll find the ten neighbourhoods that performed the best according to those six indicators listed below, along with resident profiles and notable destinations in each ’hood — though many have been forced to adapt to COVID-19, most are offering delivery and/or take-out, and we are hopeful they will resume normal operations once it is safe to do so.
