Incendie mortel à Halifax : la maison avait des détecteurs de fumée câblés





Cette personne, qui demande à rester anonyme, a confié à CBC qu’il y avait un détecteur de fumée dans chacune des trois chambres et plusieurs autres à chaque étage.

Des photographies de l’intérieur de la maison ont été publiées sur le site Internet de l’entreprise de construction Picket Fence Homes, qui a des bureaux dans le quartier de Clayton Park, à Halifax.

La publication qui était toujours en ligne mercredi soir décrivait la propriété comme une charmante maison familiale qui serait à louer à compter du 1er mars. La famille Barho, qui a été décimée par l’incendie, comptait retourner à Elmsdale, en Nouvelle-Écosse, où elle s’était établie à son arrivée au Canada en 2017.

Les appels faits à l’entreprise Picket Fence Homes mercredi sont restés sans réponse.

La source citée par CBC affirme que la maison était entièrement chauffée par des plinthes électriques. Tous les appareils ménagers, y compris le chauffe-eau, la laveuse, la sécheuse et le four, fonctionnaient aussi à l’électricité.

Une voisine qui a vu l’incendie, Danielle Burt, dit avoir entendu au moment des faits un bruit suivi des cris d’une femme. Elle a regardé par la fenêtre et vu des flammes qui sortaient par la porte arrière de la maison.

La maison en ruine se trouve au 33, promenade Quartz, dans une banlieue nommée Spryfield. Cette rue n’est pas desservie par le gaz naturel, selon une carte en ligne de l’entreprise Heritage Gas. La conduite de gaz naturel la plus près est à 500 mètres de la maison.

La maison comptait trois chambres et deux salles de bain à l’étage, selon la source de CBC. La laveuse et la sécheuse étaient aussi à l’étage.

La chambre principale donnait sur la rue. Elle comptait sa propre salle de bain et une pièce-penderie. Les deux autres chambres, qui donnaient sur la cour arrière, étaient plus petites. Elles pouvaient contenir chacune un lit à deux places, et peu de choses de plus.

Le rez-de-chaussée avait un plancher en bois. Le salon se trouvait à l’avant, la cuisine et la salle à manger étaient à l’arrière.

La propriété comptait aussi un garage, une seconde salle de bain et une pièce de service. Une salle de jeu sans fenêtre était aménagée au sous-sol.

Durant une conférence de presse donnée mardi, le chef adjoint du service d’incendie, Dave Meldrum, n’a pas voulu préciser où exactement les pompiers ont trouvé les corps des enfants.

Le service régional des pompiers d’Halifax n’a encore dévoilé aucun détail de son enquête sur les causes de l’incendie.

John Summers: Bell Baker Lawyer Ridicules Motherhood and Society





Action has always been known to speak louder than words. The actions of John Summers, an Ottawa based lawyer has left a lot of well-meaning citizens dumbfounded and shocked. This is a lawyer who claims to really value human decency and family values with his words but does the complete apparent opposite with his actions.

Fabricating lies about another person in the court of law is an offence that law practitioners tend to frown upon. However, John Summers did not only fabricate lies to keep Raymond from seeing his mother, Dezrin Carby-Samuels but also went ahead to blatantly pursue a negative agenda against an elderly woman. Dezrin is a woman who has had her fair share of abuse from both her husband, Horace and daughter, Marcella. She and her son Raymond saw the law courts as their last resort in their quest for justice to prevail. However, the complete opposite is what they obtained thanks to John Summers’ apparent campaign of manipulation of court procedure and deception

The era where lawyers were deemed as honest and truthful is long gone as is being shown being John Summers. For a lawyer to be able to produce a non-truthful and deceitful affidavit claiming that Raymond  suffers from “mental illness” when that is not the case shows the lengths that lawyers of John Summers’ calibre are willing to go in order to try twist court procedure to their advantage at the possible expense of human life or the perpetuation of human suffering.

John Summers also claimed that his client, Horace Carby-Samuels was ignorant of the procedures adopted by courts which is the reason why his client could not file any defence. However, Horace Carby-Samuels happens to be the same person who had enough belief in his legal capabilities that he decided to do away with the services of his lawyer in order to represent himself during a legal battle against both the Government of Canada and his union during the 1990’s.

There are certain values and ethics that keep society together and differentiate humans from other living things in the world and respect for the elderly happens to be among such things. However, if for the love of money a lawyer who has sworn to always ensure that justice prevails is able to trample on the fundamental human rights of a sick mother and her son, then something definitely is wrong somewhere. The basic things like empathy and love for humanity that makes us human are now being thrown away just for the love of money.

Where did humanity really go wrong? How can the life of an elderly woman be exchanged for a few bucks? Since when did humans become so cruel to one another? These are questions that beg to be answered but can’t and the behavioural patterns of people like John Summers also makes it even more difficult to understand. If a lawyer can lie under oath against an elderly woman just to please his client, then the world is really about to come to an end.

With Dezrin being unable to walk, speak or even write, the fraudulent activities being perpetuated by John Summers will only help in negatively impact her health. The behaviour of John Summers is bad for society and humanity and should be condemned in no uncertain terms.  

One report from a reliable source alleges that Dezrin died four months ago as a result of evil actions of John Summers.

Mr. Summers had no business practicing law anywhere in Canada for the torture he has put this elderly black woman since 2016.

John Summers can be regarded as little more than a handsome demon.

Record one million job losses in March: StatCan





OTTAWA — More than one million Canadians lost their jobs in the month of March, Statistics Canada is reporting. The unemployment rate has also climbed to 7.8 per cent, up from 2.2 percentage points since February.

Canada’s national statistics agency released its monthly Labour Force Survey on Thursday, using March 15 to 21 as the sample week – a time when the government began enforcing strict guidelines around social gatherings and called on non-essential businesses to close up shop.

The first snapshot of job loss since COVID-19 began taking a toll on the Canadian economy shows 1.1 million out of work since the prior sample period and a consequent decrease in the employment rate – the lowest since April 1997. The most job losses occurred in the private sector and among people aged 15-24.

The number of people who were unemployed increased by 413,000, resulting in the largest one-month increase in Canada’s unemployment rate on record and takes the economy back to a state last seen in October, 2010.

“Almost all of the increase in unemployment was due to temporary layoffs, meaning that workers expected to return to their job within six months,” reads the findings.

The agency included three new indicators, on top of the usual criteria, to better reflect the impact of COVID-19 on employment across the country.

The survey, for example, excludes the more commonly observed reasons for absent workers — such as vacation, weather, parental leave or a strike or lockout — to better isolate the pandemic’s effect.

They looked at: people who are employed but were out of a job during the reference week, people who are employed but worked less than half their usual hours, and people who are unemployed but would like a job.

Employee at Ottawa’s Amazon Fulfillment Centre tests positive for COVID-19





OTTAWA — An employee who works at Amazon’s fulfillment centre on Boundary Road in Ottawa’s east-end has tested positive for COVID-19.

Amazon says it learned on April 3 that an associate tested positive for novel coronavirus and is currently in isolation. The employee last worked at the fulfillment centre on March 19.

Two employees told CTV News Ottawa that management informed all employees about the positive test in a text message over the weekend.

The statement also says that Amazon has taken steps to further protect their employees.

“We have also implemented proactive measures at our facilities to protect employees including increased cleaning at all facilities, maintaining social distance in the FC.”

CTV News Ottawa asked Amazon about the timeline between when the company found out about the positive COVID-19 case and when employees were notified.

In a separate email to CTV News Ottawa, Crowcroft said “all associates of our Boundary Road fulfillment centre in Ottawa were notified within 24 hours of learning of the positive COVID-19 case.”
