City and Community Mourns Loss of Councillor Rick Johnson

City and Community Mourns Loss of Councillor Rick Johnson

Pickering, ON, September 28, 2016 – We are deeply saddened at the loss of our friend and colleague Councillor Rick Johnson. 

Councillor Johnson was a dedicated and passionate advocate for Pickering and represented Ward 3 tirelessly for over two decades.  In that span, he worked diligently on behalf of Pickering as both a politician and as a community leader.

Councillor Johnson has held a number of respected roles over the years, including Deputy Mayor, Durham Region Public Works Chairman, Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority Chairman, Veridian Energy Corporation Director, Durham Non-Profit Housing Director, Durham Region Master Transportation Plan Chairman, and Member of GTA Regional Public Works Chairs Committee.  He served as a Local Councillor from 1988 to 1991, Regional Councillor from 1991 to 2010, and returned to the City in 2014 to serve as a City Councillor.

Councillor Johnson had a down-to-earth style that won him many friends and supporters. His influence went beyond Pickering and can be felt across Durham Region. Expressions of condolence are flooding into City Hall from those who have been touched by Councillor Johnson’s compassion and generosity.  For those of you who wish to offer condolences to his family, an online form is available on the City website and a book of condolence is available at City Hall.

Details regarding funeral and visitation arrangements are forthcoming and will be shared on the City website.  Our deepest and most heartfelt sympathies go out to Rick’s wife Susan, his son Chris, the rest of his family and many friends and supporters. 

He will be missed.

The following arrangements have been confirmed:

Visitation at McEachnie Funeral Home on Friday from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm.

There will be additional visitation at the Dr. Nelson F. Tomlinson Community Centre on Saturday, at 12 pm, followed by the Service at 1:30 pm.


Allan's Your Independent Grocer and Remodel Construction Co. donate custom sorting tables to the St Paul's Community Food Bank

We all know that charity begins at home and the Pickering community has always been quick and generous to help support their less fortunate neighbours but, seldom do we consider the mechanizations behind the procedure.  The “How To” fi you will.  Imagine the back-breaking task of sorting thousands of pounds of donated food into food hampers at St. Paul's on-the-Hill Community Food Bank.  Now imagine doing that on a high, wide, uneven table – Ouch!

Enter Tyler and Karrie Allan of Your Independent Grocer, Pickering and Chris Clarke of Remodel Construction Co.  Together, these three listened closely to the wish list of Marg Jocz and the volunteers at the St. Paul's on-the-Hill Community Food Bank.  They found the materials, designed and presented two prototype tables on February 23, 2016.  Specially designed, these tables are low to prevent reaching up and over into food hampers and they have adjustable legs (up to 4 inches) to ensure tables are level at all times.  The straight-leg design allows for extra storage underneath.  Each table will support up to 1000 pounds of food and are narrow enough to allow for reconfiguration as needed.

We would like to thank Your Independent Grocer, Pickering, Remodel Construction Co. of Ajax, Chris Clarke and Tyler and Karrie Allan for demonstrating what it means to be good corporate citizens.  It is unfortunate that the need for a food bank exists within our community however, with generous people like these three, the battle against hunger has been made a little less strenuous. 

AjaxPickering.ca would like to take this opportunity to thank you, the residents of Pickering, for your continued donations to St. Paul's on-the-Hill Community Food Bank.  As we shake off the cold weather and our thoughts turn to warmer pastimes, picnics and BBQs please keep the food bank in mind.  Every donation, no matter how small, helps immensely.  Donations may be dropped off seven days a week at Your Independent Grocer, Pickering.  For an updated listing of the items for which there is an immediate need at St. Paul's on-the-Hill Community Food Bank please click the link:
