VANCOUVER — Loretta Rogers, the matriarch of the Rogers family and long-time director at telecom giant Rogers Communications Inc., has died at the age of 83.


Her daughter Martha Rogers confirmed her death in a tweet issued on Saturday, calling her mother a “beautiful soul” who “possessed an incredible strength of character.”

Loretta Rogers was the widow of company founder Ted Rogers, who died in 2008, and served as a director on the corporate board.



She was one of several family members at the centre of a struggle for control of the company last fall that began when her son Edward Rogers, the company’s chair, attempted to oust its chief executive.

She and two of her daughters who are also board members opposed the move, saying they went against the company’s governance practices.

But Edward Rogers went ahead with his plans after a B.C. Court affirmed his right to do so.

Woman eaten by 20 cats after dropping dead at home

A woman in Russia was eaten by nearly two dozen pet cats after she collapsed and died in her home.



Police went to the woman’s home after receiving a call from a concerned co-worker and were horrified to discover her partially eaten remains – along with 20 hungry cats.

Authorities believe she had been dead for two weeks.

The unidentified woman, who lived in the Bataysk, Rostov region of Russia, worked as a cat breeder and kept the 20 Maine Coon pedigree felines on the property.


Some of the cats have since been rehomed to new owners for about $50 each, while an animal rescue expert took in the rest of the big cats normally known for their passive nature.

“The cats were left alone on their own for two weeks, there was no food, so what else to eat?” the expert told local media, according to the U.K. Sun.

“It’s understandable right? They ate what was there.”

Edward Lake, father of children killed by drunk driver, takes own life

Edward Lake, whose three children and father-in-law were killed in a horrific crash in Vaughan due to a drunk driver in 2015, has taken his own life.


The lifeless body of Lake was discovered by a Peel Regional Police on Charters Rd. in Brampton Monday.

He had been released from Peel Police custody in the morning following an overnight incarceration, sources say, which was the result of a mental health order and an incident at his home where a Taser was used by police on Father’s Day.

Police were called to the home a second time in 24 hours by his wife, Jennifer — who had expressed concern over his actions in the backyard. Sources say that tactical officers were deployed to the home out of concern over potential threat capability.

Sources say the security cameras in the home had been turned off.

“Those on the call are very upset because of the respect for that family,” said one officer. “The only thing that people are clinging to is at least that man is out of pain.”


Lake and his wife Jennifer Neville-Lake were left distraught and heartbroken following the crash, which claimed the lives of nine-year-old Daniel, five-year-old brother Harrison, and two-year-old sister Milly, along with her 65-year-old father Gary Neville. Injured were Neville-Lake’s mother and grandmother.

In 2016, Marco Muzzo was sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to four counts of impaired driving causing death and two of impaired driving causing bodily harm.

He was released Feb. 9, 2021 on full parole and, after serving two-thirds of his reduced sentence of nine years and four months. His mandatory release was Saturday.

On Sunday, Neville-Lake shared a photo of the children’s gravesite on social media.

“Father’s Day 2022. This shouldn’t be real. It can’t be,” she wrote.



She also shared her heartbreak on the day Muzzo was granted his full release.

“My multiple life sentences will never end.”
