Saskatoon weather outlook – July 18

Chance of thunderstorms tonight as the heat returns this week!

Saskatoon Forecast

Today

The day began in the fog around 12 degrees until mid-morning when mostly sunny skies overtook.

We then quickly warmed up into the mid-20s by noon in the sunshine, feeling like 27 with humidity.

We’re shooting for a high in the mid-to-high 20s in the sunshine today, which is expected to feel like the low 30s with humidity.

Tonight

Clouds will roll back in overnight along with a pulse of thunderstorms that may bring some strong wind gusts as they pass by through the overnight period as temperatures fall back toward the mid-teens.

Tuesday

We may see a few lingering morning showers or thunderstorms before clouds clear out of the area midday to give us some sunshine to end the afternoon.

Chance of thunderstorms from the overnight period into the early morning in Saskatoon Tuesday.

We’re also looking at quite a warm day – exactly how warm is dependent on how long the cloud cover and shower/thunderstorm activity linger in the morning.

If the storms end overnight and are done by morning we could shoot as high as the low 30s tomorrow, but if they linger a little longer into the morning along with the clouds, we may only hit a high in the high 20s.

One thing is for certain, we are expecting humidex values in the low 30s tomorrow afternoon, so prepare for a hot day!

Wednesday-Friday

Mostly sunny skies look like they’ll stick around both Wednesday and Thursday with temperatures in the high 20s, possibly popping up into the low 30s, but humidex values should be in the low 30s under mostly sunny skies and just a few clouds through the afternoon.

There is a slight chance of late day thunderstorms on Wednesday, but otherwise the main thunderstorm risk is Friday as an upper trough destabilizes the atmosphere.

At this point, we’re looking at a daytime high in the upper 20s with clouds building in through the day with a chance of late day showers and thunderstorms for Friday.

Weekend Outlook

Depending how long it takes the upper trough to swing through, we may see some showers and thunderstorms lingering through Saturday with temperatures in the mid-20s.

Sunday looks more stable at this point with some upper ridging moving back in, clearing skies back out to give us a mostly sunny day with a daytime high in the high 20s, possibly even into the low 30s.

Russian doping scandal: Canadian experts ‘repulsed,’ ‘disheartened’ by report’s findings

They swapped samples, tampered with them and some even “disappeared.” The findings out of an independent investigation that confirmed Russia cheated at the Olympics has left Canadian leaders in the anti-doping field “repulsed,” “astonished,” and “devastated.”

The investigation, led by Canadian law professor Richard McLaren of Western University, concluded that Russia carried out widespread, state-sponsored doping that led to 312 falsified results spanning from 2011 to 2015.

  • Anti-doping leaders draft letter calling to ban Russia from Olympics

    In the report’s Monday unveiling, McLaren said that labs in Moscow and Sochi protected Russian athletes.

    “No one would ever assume that a country hosting an Olympic Games would work so actively to sabotage the doping controls that surround the event…I’m repulsed and astonished. It’s like something out of a spy novel in some respects,” Dr. Andrew Pipe told Global News.

    READ MORE: How Russia pulled off state-sponsored cheating at the Olympics

    He’s a physician at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute who has spent decades in sports medicine. Since the 1980s, he’s taken part in 11 Olympics, helped to construct world anti-doping measures and led the formation of Canada’s own anti-doping agency.

    Paul Melia, president of the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sports, said he was “disheartened” by the findings.

    WATCH: An independent investigation led by a Canadian law professor has confirmed widespread, state-sponsored doping in Russian sports. 

    He said he thinks of the response from “clean” athletes who jump through so many hoops to play their sport on a global stage.

    “Everything we do is to try to ensure that not just Canadian athletes, but athletes around the world, have a level playing field. We demand so much of them to apply to this world anti-doping code – we take their blood, urine, check on their whereabouts, look at their medical records,” Melia told Global News.

    “All of that is very intrusive, and they do it willingly because that’s the price they pay for a clean sport. So for them to do that and to hear a country was undermining everything they were doing and they were competing against these athletes…that must be discouraging for them,” Melia said.

    Melia said world officials made huge strides in anti-doping measures. Athlete biological passports – or ABPs, for example – were implemented. They act as identity cards containing each athlete’s blood profile in its uninterrupted state. Athletes have to be tested at random and often to create a baseline of what their typical blood makeup looks like. Then, officials can easily detect an aberration.

    But the report found that Russian athletes circumvented most of this – in the lab, the “disappearing positive methodology” meant that samples of positive test results were turned into negative ones.

    “Laboratory staff was under strict instructions to report all positives to the ministry of sport, whatever the circumstances,” McLaren said.

    In summary, samples were swapped out to cover up doping.  Russia’s own secret service, called the FSB, was even tasked with figuring out how to swap dirty urine with clean urine, the report said.

    “They [FSB] developed a method for surreptitiously removing the caps of the bottles for use at Sochi,” McLaren said. “As a result there were no positive samples at the Sochi Games for Russian athletes.”

    Pipe called the swapping system “deceptively simple” – a quick “switcheroo” that took place in the middle of the night.

    It’s the scale that’s troubling, too. While single athletes or a unit led by coach may be found guilty of doping, this is a “whole new scale.”

    “No one has been brazen enough to do this in an Olympic Games…we put great faith in the lab scientists and lab apparatuses around the world. It’s appalling to learn what has taken place in this setting and the architecture behind it all,” Pipe said.

    Melia called the findings “disillusioning.”

    WATCH: According to a WADA report, the drug testing lab at the Sochi Olympics “operated a unique sample swapping methodology” that allowed “dirty” Russian athletes to compete at the 2014 Winter Games.

    “We were developing new test techniques and it felt like we were moving forward and making progress to stop doping in sport. To think this kind of doping was going on and it was run by the government of Russia and their lab with no regard for the code or integrity of the sport,” Melia said.

    The bottom line? He suggests that while world anti-doping codes have been put in place, it doesn’t mean countries are abiding by the rules.

    “We’ve naively believed they’ve adopted the code and they say they’ve been following the code, but they’ve been doing the opposite,” Melia said.

    Following Monday’s report, the WADA’s executive board wants the IOC to ban all Russian teams from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

    WADA also wants Russian government officials to be denied access to international competitions, including the upcoming Olympics.

New trend giving the finger to engagement rings

Why wait for someone to “put a ring on it” if you could do it yourself?

That’s the idea behind the “self love” pinky ring that’s popping up on social media threads as a testament of a woman’s commitment to herself.

“An engagement ring is external love, whereas the pinky ring is entirely self-sufficient love,” said 23-year-old Aaryn Doyle of Ontario.

She and her best friend Vita Chambers showed off their matching bling on Instagram last month.

View this post on Instagram

Thank you @fredandfar for our beautiful pink rings we love them @aarynelan #rings #cousinsister #saphire

A post shared by Vita Chambers (@vitachambers) on Jun 18, 2016 at 1:53pm PDT

Laura Chambers, who lives in Maine, recently bought one for her daughter’s university graduation. She says she fell in love with the simple design as much as the message behind it.

“What better gift can one give to their daughter… a daily reminder to smile and put yourself first,” she said. “The ring represented everything we’d spent the formative years quietly instilling in our daughter: to be strong, do what makes you happy, be you and follow your instinct.”

Laura Chambers and her daughter Hannah.

All the women admit to having their own struggles with self-love at times. But the triangular trinket is supposed to serve as a daily reminder to love and honour oneself.

Melody Godfred came up with the idea for it after treating herself to a pinky ring, shortly after giving birth to her now-four-year-old twin girls.

“I… found myself drowning because I was never on my own priority list,” the 34-year-old L.A. entrepreneur said, looking back at the difficult time of managing life with two newborns.

She eventually learned to let go and accept herself (along with all her shortcomings) — a tough feat after having grown up surrounded by “super women” who held themselves to an ideal of perfection, even if it was to their detriment.

Seeing the stone on her little finger every day and remembering what it’s supposed to be convey, proved to be powerful for Godfred.

And when she launched her company Fred + Far with her friend Samina Far this past February, her hope was to help other women make that same mental shift.

“Up until now the only ring women have been taught to wear represents a symbol of commitment to someone else. And it’s also very contingent on being chosen.”

“We’ve been taught that we all need a ring, and it needs to be big and …that if it’s not big and we’re not chosen then we’re not of value.

“We’re kind of taking that narrative and turning it over, saying, ‘you know what, I’m going to use this as a tool for empowering myself.”

The Fred + Far rings are all 1.5-carat conflict-free white sapphires that either come in a sterling silver setting (for USD$150) or solid gold for roughly double the price.

Each purchase comes with a “pinky promise pledge card to commemorate the commitment” a woman is making to herself.

Say hello and congratulations to @jesspakdaman for joining us.

Skeptics might be asking themselves: “Isn’t this just another ploy to sell rings?” After all, diamond engagement rings became part of our culture when the diamond company De Beers instilled in us that “A Diamond is Forever.”

Godfred doesn’t mind the criticism.

“At the end of the day, our goal is to spread the mission of self love,” she said.

“We’re happy this conversation is happening even if it’s not always taken in a positive light. I still think it’s spreading the message and that, for us, is absolutely the most important thing.”

She also points out that she and her business partner are not jewelers by trade. In fact, down the road, they may even sell something entirely different to remind women of their relationship with themselves.

As for Doyle and Chambers, as much as they love their pinky rings, both admitted they wouldn’t shy away from posting their engagement rings online when that moment comes.

“I believe both rings go hand in hand,” 23-year-old Chambers said. “Both should be celebrated.”

According to mythology, she added, the Greeks believed we were born as a whole but were then ripped apart into two, leaving us to search for our other halves (i.e. our “soul mates”).

“I think for you to find your other half,” she said, “you need to find yourself first.”

Osoyoos debates banning all marijuana operations

Osoyoos boasts of having ‘Canada’s warmest welcome,’ but not when it comes to marijuana retail shops. Instead those may continue getting a cold reception as the town considers passing a bylaw that would ban marijuana operations.

A the last council meeting, mayor and council were split on the proposal. But in a 3-2 vote, they approved the initial readings of the bylaw.

“If this bylaw gets passed, I don’t think it is incredibly harmful, I just don’t personally think it is necessary,” said councillor Mike Campol, who voted against.

“We have the right to refuse business licenses and the RCMP are, and have been, doing a great job with dealing with what we’ve been faced now with dispensaries trying to open here.”

The town said there’s been growing business interests from marijuana dispensary owners. So it sought legal counsel,  which recommended implementing a new zoning bylaw amendment.

The town said this would be a ‘short-term, interim measure’ as officials wait for the federal government to introduce new regulations that would impact marijuana dispensaries.

“Just because any zoning bylaw can be changed any time, it is just my feeling that we’re discouraging something that we don’t completely understand,” Campol said.

On Monday, people will be able to provide input at a public hearing before the issue goes for a third hearing.

Brynn Jones, an Okanagan marijuana business owner, is speaking in front of council.

His position: educate and regulate, not prohibit.

“I’m not hoping to change council, but bring information to them. We want civic council to make the right decisions for their community, no matter what they are. But we also want to make informed decisions,”Jones said.

Council will finalize a date for the third reading before the bylaw goes for adoption.

Craven Country Jamboree cleanup expected to be completed earlier than usual

A small lake of beer under the grandstand bleachers, overflowing dumpsters, questionable sleeping bags and an abandoned barbecue are just some of the sights in the annual Craven Country Jamboree cleanup.

The mess after the four-day music festival is nothing new, but it gets under the skin of some jamboree attendees.

“There’s some pretty disgusting people that come here, yeah. No regard for anybody, but themselves basically,” Jon Secuur said.

Secuur was out on Monday picking up empty cans with his daughter Megan. It’s a post-Craven tradition for the two, who capped off their experience with a run to Sar-Can and a visit to Toys-R-Us.

However, not all the camps are filled with carelessly discarded cans. On Monday morning, there were lots of campsites where garbage was neatly collected in bags awaiting pickup.

It’s not all bad at the Jamboree clean-up. Many campsites have their garbage properly packed away.

David Baxter/Global News

Organizers said that the dry weather is a welcomed help for the clean-up efforts, which they anticipate to finish by Thursday.

“It does make everything easier. Not just for us logistically as a festival, but for everyone getting in and out of here. Certainly keeping their camp sites clean and tidy,” assistant marketing director, Gerry Krochak said.

A team of 140 workers has been hired to handle the cleanup, which includes clearing garbage for camp sites, handling dozens of dumpsters, and clearing about 300 porta-potties.

    “If you look at it right after the jamboree’s done it is a field of garbage out there, but it is gone within a week,” Rick Taylor said.

    “It is cleaned up and spotless within no time at all.”

    “I think it’s sad. I think it comes with any type of music festival, though,” Emily Dias said.

Orlando shooter Omar Mateen repeatedly taunted for being Muslim

ORLANDO, Fla. – The gunman who opened fire at a gay Florida nightclub last month in the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history had complained he was repeatedly taunted for being Muslim in his job as a security guard at a Florida courthouse, according to records released Monday.

When Omar Mateen first started working at the St. Lucie Courthouse, one guard told deputies that “I’m a Muslim extremist and potential terrorist,” Mateen wrote in a statement to his bosses at the security firm he worked for, G4S Secure Solutions.

When boxes were delivered to the courthouse, another guard often said, “We have to be careful Omar may send us a bomb and he will get his 72 virgins,” Mateen wrote, according to the records released by the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office.

Another time, a deputy teased Mateen that his fingers had pork oil on them and he was going to rub them on Mateen’s shirt, according to Mateen. Observant Muslims don’t eat pork because it is considered unclean.

According to the records, Mateen told his bosses that in response to the taunting, he told co-workers he had ties to the Boston Marathon bombing suspects and Nidal Hasan, a former U.S. Army major who was convicted and sentenced to death in a 2009 shooting at Fort Hood in Texas that left 13 people dead and 31 wounded.

That prompted an FBI investigation in 2013. But the documents show the FBI didn’t believe he was a terrorist, and an agent told a sheriff’s office major that he didn’t think Mateen “would go postal or anything like that.”

The FBI investigated Mateen again in 2014 because of his ties to a Syrian suicide bomber who went to the same mosque, but that case also was closed without the agency taking action.

Mateen opened fire at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando during “Latin Night” on June 12 in a rampage that left 49 dead and 53 wounded. It was the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Mateen, who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State during a call with police dispatchers amid a three-hour standoff, died in a hail of gunfire after police stormed the venue.

FBI spokeswoman Amy Pittman on Monday referred questions to the FBI’s Miami office, which did not respond to an email.

Mateen’s comments to co-workers about having terrorist ties in 2013 caused enough concern with the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office that they asked G4S Secure Solutions to have him reassigned, away from the courthouse.

Mateen was born in New York and his family came from Afghanistan. In the letter to his employer, he expressed his patriotism to the United States and said he loved his job.

“I love the United States. The boasting I did it just to satisfy the gang of co-workers who ganged up against me,” Matten wrote. “I’m 1,000% pure American. … I’m against these terrorists anyone of them.”

Worried about travelling? Steps you can take to increase your security

The federal government says it continues to closely monitor events world-wide that could affect Canadians and their interests aboard.

All non-essential travel to Turkey is being advised against and advisories are being sent out to ensure the personal safety as well as security of Canadians overseas.

Notifications of an attack in Nice, France were also issued on July 14 after a truck sped through a crowd killing at least 84 people. At that time, Canadians in the area were advised to be in touch with family and friends to confirm their well-being.

    It’s videos like the one above, and graphic images similar to it, that are enough to make anyone apprehensive to about travelling especially abroad.

    “The nature of terrorism is that it tends to strike when we least expect it. It is very difficult for security services to know in advance, often they may have some indications but whether they know enough specifics to preempt those attacks is another question,” said Colleen Bell, a terrorism expert at the University of Saskatchewan.

    “At the same, I would say there is always a danger.”

    In fact, Bell says you’re more likely to be killed by your own furniture than in a terrorist attack.

    Saskatoon travel advisers who have received calls from concerned residents about to take a trip say there are things you can do to make yourself safer while overseas.

    “Everyone should register on the government site and just register where they’re going to be, when they’re going to be there,” said Shammi Rathwell, a travel adviser with Ixtapa Travel.

    “That way you leave contact information if they need to get a hold of any of your family but also they will send you travel advisories when things are happening.”

    READ MORE: Are your vacation pictures putting your home at risk of robbery?

    Leading up to your trip, Rathwell suggests watching the news before departing for your destination and access how serious a situation is in the area you’re going to.

    “Was this an isolated incident? Do they seem to be targeting somewhere more than other places? Was it contained in area or wide-spread?”

    Rathwell says she can’t understate the importance of travel protection as well, saying it’s a must-have.

    “I know people don’t always like buying insurance and it’s an added cost onto a trip but I wouldn’t go anywhere without travel protection,” she said.

    “People have employer plans that maybe have medical make sure your cancellation and interruption is enough to take if something happens.”

    It still might not cover everything says Rathwell but will get you out of an area – quicker.

    You’re also advised to avoid travelling to places where there is unrest and use caution when visiting others.

    “I think there’s a lot of credibility to the idea that people should be concerned but not allowing these kinds of attacks to control their lives,” Bell said.

    “If we live according to fear then often we make decisions that can be extremely short-sighted and potentially produce injustices towards other people that live within our societies.”

‘It’s beautiful’: elderly woman grateful after volunteers restore her fence

Some volunteers helped out a southern Alberta woman on Monday after her white picket fence had fallen into disrepair.

“It’s an eyesore, it’s not nice looking,” Ailene Vandermolen said of her fence.

The elderly woman has lived in her home for over 60 years and says she has worked hard to keep her house in good condition.

“There were only two owners who have lived in this house,” she said. “My husband’s parents and ourselves.”

ChangSha Night Net

Keeping her house in top condition is important to Vandermolen, as it was to her late husband, Dick.

“He passed away three years ago,” she said.  “Otherwise he would be doing the fence.”

Unable to take on the restoration project herself, she enlisted the help of the not-for-profit organization, Project Paintbrush.

“It has to be nice looking,” she said. “When something wears out you have to make it look good.”

Monday morning, volunteers from Edenbridge Family Services arrived to donate their time to help Vandermolen. They started with the hard work – scraping and sanding.

Hard work is something Vandermolen said her late husband instilled in their six children, and something that has served them well their entire lives.

“It’s done a lot of good,” she said. “They don’t have to have a maintenance man come over to do it for them.”

Vandermolen said she was extremely grateful for the help of the volunteers.

“I think it’s beautiful that they’re willing to do this for nothing,” she said.” Just because they feel like doing something worthwhile – it really means a lot to me.”

The young volunteers also gained a sense of pride, work ethic and acquired new skills.

“It’s not just painting,” Project Paintbrush’s Jason Cousin said. “You learn new skills, you make new friends and you better your community.”

“It gives you a chance to learn new things and help out around the community” volunteer Angelica Nash said.

After sanding hundreds of boards and applying two layers of paint, the exhausted volunteers could be proud of their accomplishment knowing that Ailene and Dick’s fence is restored to its former glory.

Fatal Cold Lake air show plane crash not caused by mechanical issues or weather: report

A report into a fatal plane crash at an air show in Cold Lake, Alta. did not identify any glaring problems which may have caused the accident, saying mechanical issues and weather were not factors.

Pilot and geologist Bruce Evans of Calgary, died July 17, 2016, when his vintage Trojan T-28 aircraft crashed during an aerobatic routine in front of thousands of horrified spectators at CFB Cold Lake.

A report from the Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) said Evans was an experienced pilot of over 20 years with over 4,043 flying hours – 461.5 of which were logged while flying the Trojan T-28. The TSB said he earned a private pilot’s licence in 1993, a commercial licence in 1995 and an airline transport licence in 2015.

Although the Cold Lake Airshow was the pilot’s first event of the season, he had performed in four air shows in Alberta and B.C. in 2015 without any problems, the report said.

ChangSha Night Net

He practiced for the show twice in the months leading up to the air show and his medical certificate was current.

On July 16 — the first day of the show — Evans performed his 15-move, 12-minute-long aerobatic routine without incident. On the second day, he took off and began performing the routine as planned.

About halfway through his performance Evans modified the order of his manoeuvres, flying what appeared to be half of a lazy eight followed by a half reverse Cuban, instead of the planned slow roll.The TSB noted it is not unusual for pilots to change the order, and is acceptable as long as the changes are consistent with those in the original plan.

After the changes, the plane went into a roll. “As the aircraft reached the inverted position, the roll stopped and the nose began to pitch toward the ground,” the TSB report said.

The plane fell 500 feet, crashing into the ground at a high velocity in a near-vertical attitude. It was destroyed by the impact. The plane crashed near the radar station and some buildings. No one else was injured.

Firefighters arrived at the site within a minute and a half of the crash. The remainder of the show was cancelled.

The Trojan T-28 aircraft was built in 1954 and was originally used to train United States Navy pilots in the 1950s and ’60s. It was designed for the type of aerobatics in Evan’s routine, including barrel rolls and spins. He had owned the plane since 2007.

“An annual inspection was completed on April 9, 2016. No outstanding defects were noted in the maintenance or aircraft logbooks, and the aircraft had been operated within its weight-and-balance and design limits,” the TSB report stated.

The TSB determined the engine and flight controls had been operating normally prior to crash. It was a clear, 22 C day with very little wind. The TSB said weather conditions were not considered a factor in the crash.

Air shows in Canada must undergo an extensive approval process with Transport Canada, and the TSB said the Cold Lake show met all requirements. A Transport Canada inspector is required to attend at least one day of the show to ensure rules are followed. The inspector for this show was not there on the second day when Evans died.

Evans grew up in a Canadian Air Force family. His biography on the Cold Lake Air Show’s website at the time said his father was an aircraft maintenance engineer.

It also said Evans was from Calgary and ran his own aerial geophysical survey company, Firefly Airborne Surveys, which combined his training as a professional geologist and passion for aviation.

Evans loved to share his passion for aviation with young people, said a friend who met him while they were both part of a training program teaching youth about Canada’s aviation history.

Baby’s homemade wheelchair makes the impossible possible

EDMONTON – Sometimes when Eva Moore shows up to play dates, the other kids get jealous of her sweet set of wheels: a rolling purple Bumbo seat, decked out with a banner on the back.

“It’s not a toy; it’s her wheelchair,” her mother, Kim Moore, often has to explain to other toddlers.

The one-year-old does get around a lot faster than her friends, despite the fact that she’s paraplegic.

    Eight months ago, doctors found a tumour in Eva’s chest and back – Stage 4 neuroblastoma – which caused permanent damage to her spinal cord.

    The infant endured emergency surgery, then eight rounds of chemotherapy. The procedures saved her life, but not her legs.

    “This was one of the most powerful stories of resiliency I’ve ever seen,” pediatric oncologist Bev Wilson said.

    Wilson says Eva has inspired her entire medical team at the Stollery Children’s Hospital.

    While a dual diagnosis of cancer and paraplegia would have crushed most parents, the Moores managed to focus on what their daughter could do.

    “(Eva’s parents) normalized her emotional experience, her social development,” Wilson explained. “When she normally would be a crawler, she was able to explore her world, like any other crawling infant would.”

    The Moores found the idea for the chair on Pinterest, then built it themselves by screwing the seat and wheels into a regular cutting board. Eva loves it.

    “It’s really funny – she clicks her wheels,” her mother said.

Saskatchewan RCMP field over 850 CRA fraud complaints so far in 2016

So far in 2016, Saskatchewan RCMP have fielded over 850 complaints about the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) scam.

Fraudsters falsely claiming to collect payment for taxes have scammed at least 17 people out of $70,000.

Aggressive scammers threaten residents with arrest, legal action and seizure of assets if payment isn’t made. They will sometimes use vulgar language, particularly if the victim does not comply with demands.

    On Monday, RCMP said callers are also falsely identifying themselves as police officers.

    Fraudsters are able to spoof local telephone numbers so calls can appear to come from an RCMP detachment; however, most calls come from non-local numbers.

    Officials are ensuring the public that the CRA never contacts people by telephone, text or email to ask for personal information or demand payment in the form of prepaid credit or even iTunes gift cards.

    Those in doubt about taxes owed can check their account at the CRA website or call 1-800-959-8281.

    If someone receives a suspicious call, they should record any specific details and report it to their local police service and the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC).

    Anyone who unwittingly divulges personal information or financial information should contact their bank and local police force. People can also place a fraud alert on credit reports with  Equifax Canada and TransUnion Canada.

Pokemon Go: BC mother devastated to learn son’s memorial site used as PokeStop

A Nanaimo, B.C. mother is devastated after learning a memorial site for her two-year-old son in Burlington, Ont. is being used as a “PokeStop” in the new Pokemon Go video game.

Jenny Latimer’s son Kevin died tragically in February 2004 after falling from a family member’s window, a memory she is still haunted by.

    Latimer awoke to messages from friends Monday morning telling her the boy’s memorial site was being used as a PokeStop, a place where players can refill on in-game items while playing the popular mobile game.

    “I have ongoing nightmares, I always have. Certain things set it off and every time you get better something seems to happen,” she said through tears.

    “Things like this just bring up the past and it makes it very hard to deal with.”

    A plaque dedicated to her son also appears on the game’s screen, which reads “in loving memory of my courageous little angel may your love and strength shine through to us forever.”

    “It’s pretty destroying knowing that something I consider sacred is part of a game. It’s not a game,” she said.

    “It’s very hurtful to know that something that I want to have there as a positive memory is in my eyes being vandalized virtually.”

    Latimer said she has reached out to the game’s developer, Niantic, Inc., about removing the PokeStop but has yet to receive a response.

    “It’s very disrespectful. The memorial is on sacred ground, it is at a church and it’s a very inappropriate place for people to be playing video games,” she said.

    “My mum still goes to that church, and it’s a place people can go and remember him in a positive way and in a peaceful way and this game is making it very disrespectful.”

    She said she is worried the memorial might be damaged and hopes that the developer will soon realize the mistake that’s been made.

    Latimer’s cousin Allen Harrington said he was driving to his grandmother’s home in Burlington when he noticed the boy’s memorial pop up as a location in Pokemon Go.

    “It is kind of nifty in that it’s probably one of the biggest games ever that has been launched, and from there it’s kind of neat how he’s being immortalized in the game,” he said, adding that his family is staunchly against the PokeStop.

    “But at the same time I can see the other side of the story where it’s not a good thing.”

    Latimer said she hopes to receive a response from the game’s developer soon so that she can stop watching her son’s memorial treated as a “circus.”

    “I think it would be a great idea to have someone look over and make sure [PokeStops are] not in an inappropriate place, because it can be very hurtful,” she said.

    “As much as some people think it’s funny and it’s games, I wouldn’t want my son’s grave or the memorial to be in a picture with a Pokemon.”

    A PokeStop in Burlington, Ont. at the site of a memorial for Kevin james Latimer is seen in the game on July 17, 2016.
