    Kingston Panthers Rugby Club Day

    (La Salle Secondary School, Kingston, Ontario, July 7th 2018)


    The local Rugby club hosts its annual celebration and tournament.


    The Kingston Panthers Rugby Football Club is holding its annual Club Day at the Lasalle Secondary School and Grenadier Park fields on Saturday July 7th. This is the largest annual Rugby tournament in the city, an all-day event organized by the KPRFC, with 16 local Rugby teams hosting games during the day, across six different pitches. The first matches start at 10 AM and end by approximately 4:30 PM.


    Last year, to mark the KPRFC’s 50th Anniversary, over 2500 players and spectators were in attendance and another great turnout is expected this year. Opposition teams will include teams from the Barrhaven Scottish, Hull Gladiateurs, Ottawa Ospreys, Beaconsfield, Ottawa Wolves, Ottawa Banshees, Montreal Irish, St. Anne-de-Bellevue, Belleville, Brockville, and Sherbrooke Abenakis Rugby Football Clubs. The day includes approximately 150 children playing in the Flag Rugby Festival for U7/U9s and U11 Contact Rugby, along with Junior Men’s and Women’s teams from U13 to U19, and both Senior, Men’s and Women’s, and Masters events. The club currently has 7 junior athletes selected to play for Ontario teams, one for Team Canada, and even more will represent Eastern Ontario.


    All community members are welcome to attend and enjoy an action-packed day – Kingston is a Rugby City.


    More information and a detailed schedule can be found at http://www.kingstonpanthersrugby.com.


    “The Kingston Panthers take great pride in providing the full spectrum of club Rugby; from new players of all ages to our Super League competitive team, we provide the opportunity for all to enjoy a sport that values respect and teamwork.” Dave Beyer, Club President and Player


    “Rugby is an awesome and addictive contact sport and has given me such a great and supportive community, as well as many lessons over the years like always picking yourself back up, confidence in decisions and skills, and the mental strength and focus needed when others are depending on you.“ Alina Farcas, Communications Manager and Player

    My Experience Working For Blackberry


    I worked for this company in 2003 and then again in 2012 and harassment began to take place and as a result I’ve submitted a Better Business Bureau complaint in 2014 as well as a tribunal complaint in 2016. This business needs to be thoroughly investigated. This email has been sent to the Better Business Bureau , Ombudsmen, FTC, all Canadian Newspapers, Kathleen Wynne, OPP, and the Ontario Human rights Commission


    Some of the information submitted within the complaint is listed below:A woman at Vuteq where I previously worked was shouting comments to me from a distance (name I believe was Laura) Vuteq management was notified of the incident. Approximately Dec of 2015 Vuteq premises as I was leaving work. Lunch has been stolen from Vuteq. I had taken a Goodlife trainer’s course and had people join the course and harass me. I’ve received threats

    These issues first started while I was working at BlackBerry and escalated once I was layed off. Vehicle broken into and damage done to car stereo( was rewired) in Mississauga police report was filed PR15-044 7061 keys were stolen, items stolen from vehicle staff have been hired from places I work to harass me, one place was The Monitoring Center in Oakville an Alarm Monitoring Company

    John Chen was contacted Oct 6th 2016 via LinkedIn with no response receivedJim Mackey was contacted Oct 8th, 2016 with no response received regarding matter Marty Beard – Chief Operating Officer at BlackBerry contacted Oct 12, 2016.

    The following statement was sent to them Mike D Scott has been harassing me and my family for quite some time, you may or may not be aware of this. As a result sometime back a complaint was filed with the BBB bureau because of his actions. It appears he intends to continue with his actions forcing further complaints to be filed. As they’re submitted I will forward you a copy of them for your review. A Better Business Bureau complaint was filed July 17, 2014 case# 1302548

    On Oct 16, 2016 the following was sent to John S Chen and Jim Mackey


    A complained will be filed with the Tribunal shortly in regards to this matter. Thank you

    response received from Jim Mackey


    “At 11:53 AM, Jim Mackey said the following:Thank you. I do not manage this area.”


    My response


    “At 11:59 AM, Roger Virgo said the following:Okay please forward to the appropriate person and they can feel free to contact me.”

    John Chen has been contacted via LinkedIn regarding this matter with no response received


    Complaints have been filed recently again with Tribunal, BBB, Ombudsman, and our Premier has been contacted. The information below is to provide some additional information on what’s being going on in regards to a lawsuit with some former employees.


    https://nelligan.ca/class-actions/blackberry/


    Nelligan O’Brien Payne LLP has commenced a class action against BlackBerry Limited (“BlackBerry”) on behalf of a group of BlackBerry’s employees working in Ontario and across Canada.

    BlackBerry arranged to transfer over 300 employees across Canada to a business partner. Only after employees accepted employment with the business partner, BlackBerry informed the employees that they had resigned their employment. Blackberry provided resignation letters for the employees to sign and dictated their last date of employment. Blackberry stated that the transfer is not a sale of business, meaning the employees will lose all of their years of service.


    BlackBerry’s actions amount to a termination of the employees’ employment. This entitles these employees to statutory, common law, and/or contractual entitlements on termination. BlackBerry has stated that it will not pay BlackBerry employees any of these entitlements, despite the fact that employees lose all of their years of service.


    BlackBerry has breached its duties of good faith and honesty, and has knowingly misled the employees. BlackBerry structured this transaction in such a way as to avoid paying these employees their statutory entitlements.


    We seek damages for the plaintiffs for minimum provincial statutory entitlements on termination, contractual entitlements on termination, and/or common law entitlements on termination. We are also asking for bad faith and punitive damages, as well as costs.


    Plaintiffs in the class action include individuals who were employees and/or dependent contractors of BlackBerry Limited in Canada, and who were offered and accepted employment with the business partner.

    Here I am in B C and I just happened to catch your interview today of the 3 women, former members of the Red Baron hockey team, on your program “The Time of Your Life”. I grew up in the 50ties, early 60ties in a prairies hockey town, “watching” the boys, my classmates, play hockey. What a revelation to listen to women discuss their hockey playing days from the 70ties and to learn that a woman to play hockey into her 40ties. in some Cdn places. What a good time these women were having. I learned that its possible to play skilled hockey without all the physical combat. I hope the progress in women’s hockey can soon evolve to properly reimburse women hockey players on our Olympic hockey team!. Did I hear correctly that there’s 247 female hockey teams in Ontario. Wow. Your three ladies, Annabelle, Cookie, and Caroline sccored a hat trick today. It was fun and great to hear your stories. Great potential for a movie here.

    Hello, Just wondering I have always listened to your archive files, as of yesterday when I try to access the archives I receive a notification stating that the files are not configured in a secure manner and firefox will not connect. I can still listen to cfrc but can no longer use archives. Don’t know if the issue is your end or mine. Thank you always for your great selections of music, Maureen Good

    “Re: Google Manual Action Penalties


    My name is David and I am a Digital Marketing Specialists for a Creative Agency.

    I was doing some industry benchmarking for a client of mine when I came across your website.

    I noticed a few technical errors which correspond with a drop of website traffic over the last 6-8 months which I thought I would bring to your attention.

    After closer inspection it appears your site is lacking in 4 key criteria.

    1- Website Speed

    2- Link Diversity

    3- Domain Authority

    4- Competition Comparison


    I can send you over the report which shows all of the above and so much more which will help you at least improve your site, its rankings and traffic.

    I would love the chance to help as well however; this report will at least give you a gauge on the quality of what I do.  If you are interested then please share your requirement and contact details.


    Is this the best email to send it to?

    Once again, I am a fan of the radio station but I can not stand these idiots that have the Wednesday 5:30pm time slot. This radio station is so far Left Wing that it makes my head spin. They go on about pot and rip the Conservatives for the entire show. They are completely uninformed. I am a supporter of legal marijuana bit these guys are terrible to listen to.

    Hi,


    My name is Robb Barnes, and I’m the singer/songwriter for a new band from Ottawa called the Pale Light.


    I recently recorded and released the Pale Light’s debut album, ‘Future Eaters’ (release date: March 28, 2017). I hope you’ll take a listen to our first single and consider giving it a spin on one of your shows. I’m including a link to the full length on Bandcamp below. I’m also available for an interview.


    Is there an email address where I can send the single or full length?


    More information about the band and the album:


    About the Pale Light:


    The Pale Light is Robb Barnes, former frontman of For the Mathematics (Ottawa-based post-punk indie) and Higher Rites (Toronto-based alternative indie). The Pale Light was born in Ottawa in 2016, out of a desire to make meaningful music unbounded by style or musical limitations.


    About Future Eaters:


    Future Eaters is an album about creeping fascism and environmental collapse. Despite the dark themes, Future Eaters is a labour of love – an exploration of warm synth tones, pop-inflected melodies and post-punk influenced guitar lines slowed down for a non-punk context.
