  1. A 28-year-old man was “in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong attitude” when he broke into two vehicles in October, Ontario Court of Justice heard Tuesday. Correy Whitton had stayed out of trouble with the law for about four years, “cleaning up his act” from a drug- and alcohol-fuelled youth. “Over the years he was out of control with alcohol and substance abuse,” defence counsel D.L. Ehlers told Judge Pierre Bradley. He was gainfully employed and found direction in his life, dedicating his life to the Jehovah’s Witnesses and to his family. “While he was with the group he had it all together,” Ehlers said. But when he followed his partner and their three children to North Bay, things went wrong. He was frustrated and angry that he had given up the first full-time job he’d ever held over a custody issue, and then discovered his brother had been hospitalized with a drug overdose. “I was pretty messed up,” he admitted. Court was told that on Oct. 2, a Tackaberry Drive resident found Whitton in his father’s vehicle rummaging around in the front seat area. The man removed Whitton from the vehicle and pinned him to the ground until police arrived. When police searched him, they found bolt cutters and other break-in instruments in his possession. At the police headquarters, he gave officers a false name. Whitton was released on bail the following morning. On Oct. 22, Whitton entered another vehicle and removed the owner’s wallet. He went to a convenience store and purchased $45 worth of lottery tickets with a credit card he took from the wallet. Two days later, Whitton and another man entered a bar after closing time through an unlocked rear door, taking and breaking items with a total value of $5,006. He was arrested the following day based on video surveillance. Read more: http://www.nugget.ca/2018/01/03/north-bay-man-sentenced-for-breaking-into-vehicles-damaging-barvi
  2. Ontario, Canada, robots to operate cancer in Jehovah's witnesses. The patient, a 70-Year-old high risk of prostate cancer, was a Jehovah's witness. His religion was one of the reasons why he decided to undergo surgery in st. Joseph's healthcare in Hamilton, home to a robot named da Vinci, whose firm metal hands can remove a prostate with little risk of blood transfusions prohibited by man's faith. On a recent afternoon, the patient remained unconscious on an operating table while surgeon bobby shayegan and his team threw a camera and three surgical instruments controlled through small incisions in his abdomen. Dr... Shayegan settled in front of a three-dimensional screen, joined the two joysticks who controlled the tools inside his patient's pelvis and proceeded to cut, cauterize and sew until he released the man's prostate, pulling it out through one of the original incisions. There was no blood. " that was routine said Dr. Shayegan later, holding the gland the size of a plum tree that he and the robot had withdrawn together. Very routine. This is how nine out of every 10 prostatectomy take place in the United States. Robot-assisted surgery is not the path of the future there - it is the path of now. https://beta.theglobeandmail.com/life/health-and-fitness/health/the-fight-for-robots-in-canadas-operatingrooms/article35897282/?ref=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.theglobeandmail.com
  3. Thousands attended the Northern Ontario 2017 Convention Jehovah's Witnesses at the Essar Centre this weekend Thousands of Jehovah's Witnesses and their families this weekend for the Northern Ontario 2017 Convention of Jehovah's Witnesses. The event took place at the Essar Centre and this year's theme was Don't Give Up. The convention was expected to draw around 3,000 people and on Saturday approximately 2,600 were at the Essar Centre facing a big screen and stage where a hockey arena-sized bible study was presented. The Essar Centre gathering was held at the same time as a 17,000 worshiper-sized convention at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. A live feed from the Toronto convention was occasionally piped in here said organizers. https://www.sootoday.com/local-news/convention-goers-didnt-give-up-despite-the-deluge-29-photos-678055
  4. PORT DOVER - The Port Dover congregation of the Jehovah’s Witnesses is no more. The 20 or so members remaining in the congregation were dispersed to congregations in Simcoe, Waterford and Hagersville late last year. This week, “For Sale” signs were posted on the two-acre property on Blue Line Road between St. John’s Road and Highway 6. Jim Henderson of Port Dover, an elder in the faith, said the Port Dover congregation had about 80 members several years ago. The numbers dwindled in recent years as younger families moved to other communities. “This move had nothing to do with the property,” Henderson said Friday. “The building was very well maintained. This move happened because a lot of members moved to look after older family members.” Henderson says all concerned are sorry to see the property go. However, he pointed out that the new members in Simcoe, Waterford and Hagersville have fortified these congregations “not only spiritually but monetarily as well.” “We hope the building will be put to good use,” he said. The former Kingdom Hall started out as a two-room schoolhouse. The Witnesses bought the property in 1980. Coldwell Banker Coastline Realty in Port Dover has the listing. The asking price is $349,000. The interior of the 2,500-square-foot building was renovated in 2012. Washrooms were remodelled in 2015. A new well was drilled this year. Henderson isn’t sure how proceeds from the sale will be handled. However, Coldwell Banker literature lists the seller as “an international charity.” More specifically, the vendor is described elsewhere as “Trustees for the Port Dover congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses.” The property is zoned “Rural Institutional.” Permitted uses include residential, animal hospital, cemetery, crematorium, day care centre, place of worship and private club. There is parking for 26 vehicles. For taxation purposes, the assessed value of the property is $256,000. http://www.simcoereformer.ca/2016/10/21/jehovahs-witnesses-fold-in-port-dover
  5. For the first time in over 20 years the Northern Ontario Convention of Jehovah's Witnesses was held in the Sault this weekend and a couple of special gift-givers were in attendance. Elijah Turcott from Lakewood prays with around 2300 other faith-followers during the Northern Ontario 2016 Convention of Jehovah's Witnesses held in Sault Ste. Marie. Photo by Jeff Klassen for SooToday Colleen Cyrenne says her 24 year-old son Jacques Vaillancourt has been able to accomplish amazing things thanks to being involved in the Jehovah’s Witnesses. The mother and son came up from Sheguiandah on Manitoulin Island this weekend to gather with around 2300 other religious followers at the Essar Centre for the 2016 Northern Ontario Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses. 36 congregations from as far west as Thunder Bay and as east as North Bay came to attend the regions biggest annual gathering of Jehovah's Witnesses. It was the first time in over twenty years the conference was held in Sault Ste. Marie. Cyrenne described her son as being severely autistic but that the structure of their religious faith - going to conventions, studying the bible, doing 70 hours of faith work a month, etc. - has allowed him to excel in many ways. Autism, or Autism Spectrum Disorder, is a mental illness with a set of symptoms that hurt the individual’s ability to function socially, at school or work, or other areas of life. How profoundly that individual is affected by those symptoms dictates how severe the disorder is in that individual. At the weekend convention, Vaillancourt handed out 225 cut-out, hand-drawn pictures of “good-example Bible figures” and his mother handed out hundreds of fabric and plastic flowers attached to clips, so many she lost count. The figures Vaillancourt drew are meant to help remind people of the many good teachings in the bible and Cyrenne's flowers are a loving gift. “I just make them until I can’t make them anymore,” said Cyrenne, who has been doing it for so many years she doesn’t know how long.The young man, who's disorder is obvious through conversation, goes door-to-door, often on his own, spreading the religion’s message and even conducts bible study groups with young children. Cyrenne said her son has the incredible gift of being able to remember and recite a large number of biblical information verbatim with incredible accuracy. Vaillancourt can recite large parts of a 2500 page, two-volume biblical encyclopedia called 'Insight on the Scriptures' and he’s completely memorized, word-for-word, every story in a 300-page, 116 story filled book called 'My Book of Bible Stories'. “If you ask him to recite any story he can do it without the book. Let me show you,” said his mother, demonstrating. “Jacques, what’s story number 89?” “89, Jesus cleans out the Temple,” replied Vaillancourt, correctly. “Now if I tell him the title, he’ll tell me the number of the story. And then if you want him to tell the story, he can do that. For example, Jacques, what’s the first sentence in that story?” “Jesus Cleans out the Temple. (The first sentence is) Jesus looks really angry doesn’t he?“ said Jacques, nailing it. Cyrenne said her son is less nervous than her when going door-to-door preaching the word of Jehovah. She said that actually many people don’t realize that he’s autistic unless they get into a deeper conversation with him. Cyrenne, in her 50s, has been involved in the Jehovah’s Witnesses her whole life and she said going to conventions with her parents over the years personally inspired her to be giving to others and considerate of the elderly. Her father used to donate vegetables to the convention kitchen while her mother struggled with general old-age health issues that mean she would struggle to sit through the long seminars. Cyrenne, teared-up discussing her and her son’s gift giving. “I wanted to give the brothers and sisters gifts because I don’t get to see them very much. Some of the brothers and sisters are crippled and they have to sit in a chair (throughout the long weekend convention) and I know for some of them it’s really hard,” she said. But the gift-giver wanted to emphasize that what she does is not special in the faith and that others spread love in their own way be it by giving out blankets, hugs, or just donating their time. The three-day event included 49 presentations structured around the theme of “remaining loyal to Jehovah”, delivered through a multimedia presentation that included live speakers, videos, a baptism, and ways that the audience could interact with the presentation on their tablet computers. The convention is open to the public and presentations continue at the Essar Centre all day Sunday. https://www.sootoday.com/local-news/2300-jehovahs-witnesses-and-one-with-an-incredible-gift-13-photos-333871
  6. Jehovah's Witnesses from across central Ontario will be converging on the Barrie Molson Centre beginning Friday. Regional conventions are held worldwide every year, but this is the first one of its kind to be held in Barrie, according Jehovah's spokesman Steven Brown, adding area residents are welcome to attend the free event. "The theme this year is Remain Loyal to Jehovah," Brown said. "Loyalty is a crucial part of any healthy relationship. This convention focuses on content that will help all attendees to develop stronger bonds with friends, family members and, above all, God." Numerous video segments and two feature films will be shown on large screens to enhance the learning experience, he said. "The water baptism on Saturday is a highlight that many people find particularly joyful," Brown added. Local congregations will be distributing a special invitation to the public and welcoming them to attend, Brown said. "The best way residents of Barrie can be involved in this event is simply by accepting our invitation to attend the convention," he said. "Everyone is welcome. It is absolutely free: no admission charge, no collection. Come for a day, come for an hour, drop by over your lunch break. "We eagerly invite all friends of peace to attend. Although we are renowned for our enthusiasm about our Bible-based hope, we are not contagious. Visitors will find the mood to be joyful, dignified and very welcoming." He said a convention of this size also brings benefits to the local economy. "Convention delegates from central Ontario have travelled to Kitchener in past years. Clearly, Barrie is a much more convenient location for people in our area," Brown said. "Additionally, the Molson Centre is an ideal venue for our event. It is large enough for the expected 3,700 delegates, easily accessed and plenty of parking. "Your city's hotels, restaurants, services and general facilities all add up to an ideal location for our regional convention this year." Kathleen Trainor, executive director of Tourism Barrie, said a convention of this size has obvious benefits to local businesses, adding there are more more than 1,300 rooms available in the city, including the 260 rooms at Georgian Suites at Georgian College that are available during the summer. "Almost all the hotel rooms are sold out. There are very few rooms left. Based on what the hotels have told me, a little less than half (of the 3,700) are staying overnight. They're not filling up all the rooms, but there is certainly an economic impact of new money coming into the city," she said, adding that can include shopping, eating, buying gas and even the use of public transit. "We can also make the assumption that people who come here for a convention have probably tacked on some day trips or stayed somewhere in the region along the way," Trainor said. "Certainly, people coming into your area to visit is very important because it can also attract them to come and stay permanently."
