One of Nicole Seguin's favourite memories of her son Damien takes her back to a farm in Peachland, B.C., where a friendly horse seemed to single out her young son each time they visited. "We would all walk together and the horse would always come galloping toward Damien and not us," she said. Memories of Damien's childhood and photos from that time are all she has left to remember him. The 19-year-old died after being struck by a driver who fled the scene in the early morning hours of March 26 in Burnaby. Nicole's shock and immense grief is mixed with feelings of anger and frustration at the fact no one has come forward with information about the driver or the vehicle that hit her son. Damien grew up in the Okanagan with his mother, Nicole, and younger siblings before he moved to Burnaby to finish high school.(Nicole Seguin) "This is a life that was taken not only from Damien, he was taken from many loved ones," Seguin said. Driver fled the scene According to the RCMP, Damien was in one of three vehicles whose drivers and passengers got into some sort of confrontation near an intersection on Marine Drive in Burnaby. At one point, someone from one of the vehicles pepper-sprayed people in another vehicle. Damien got out of the vehicle he was in and, shortly after, was hit by a car whose driver fled the scene, according to the RCMP. His mother, who lives in West Kelowna with her three younger children, got a call from a family friend in Burnaby who told her that Damien was in hospital, clinging to life. She drove to the Lower Mainland in the morning and spent the next three days at his bedside before he died. "It's just heartbreaking," she said. "The last days in the hospital I just held him, I sang to him, I whispered in his ear that I was proud of him." Just starting life as an adult Damien graduated from Burnaby South secondary last spring and was just starting his adult life, Nicole said. Damien graduated from Burnaby South secondary last spring.(Nicole Seguin) "Damien was always funny, always goofing around, but at the same time, he was such a loveable kid," she said. "He was just an all-around really, really well-mannered kid ... I just wonder why something like this happens to someone so good who brought so much happiness to so many lives." Someone knows something Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Mike Kalanj said investigators believe the car that struck Damien was a silver or champagne Nissan Altima, 2002 to 2006 model, that likely sustained damage in the collision. Several tips have come in since the RCMP released details of the suspect vehicle but Kalanj said police have not arrested anyone in connection with the hit and run. The RCMP believe the vehicle that struck Damien Seguin is a 2002-2006 model Nissan Ultima, silver or champagne in colour. (provided by the RCMP) "What we find is [in cases like this] someone knows something and maybe is scared. Whether they were at the incident or they if they know someone that was at it — it is hard for people to keep this kind of stuff in," Kalanj said. "We want someone who knows something to come forward because we have families here that are grieving and friends that are grieving." Nicole is also pleading for someone who knows about the vehicle or driver to reach out to police. "They can come forward anonymously and clear their conscience and do the right thing," she said. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999.
EDMONTON — Alberta has passed legislation that will give all workers three hours of paid, job-protected leave to get a COVID-19 vaccination. Labour Minister Jason Copping says Bill 71 will reduce barriers for Alberta workers to get vaccinated. He says the change which goes into effect immediately means no one will have to choose between getting vaccinated and putting food on the table. The amendment to the Employment Standards Code applies to all employees regardless of their job status or length of employment. The legislation was passed quickly Wednesday only hours after health officials reported 1,699 new COVID-19 cases in the province and a test positivity rate of 9.5 per cent. Health officials confirmed another 1,332 variant cases and said variants now make up about 59 per cent of Alberta's 18,873 active cases. "Effective today, every working Albertan can access up to three hours of paid, job-protected leave for each dose of the COVID-19 vaccine," Copping said in a release. "This is the right thing to do and we will continue to take bold actions to protect Albertans lives and livelihoods while ensuring our economic recovery." The NDP said the legislation was first proposed by Opposition leader Rachel Notley on Tuesday. Notley said the bill passed unanimously. "We need to do everything we can to get Albertans vaccinated," Notley said in a release. "This is our best weapon against COVID-19 and the best way to keep workers and the people they interact with safe." Alberta has the highest per-capita case count in Canada. Notley noted that British Columbia introduced similar legislation earlier this week and Saskatchewan adopted measures to allow for paid leave to get the vaccine in March.

WASHINGTON — Wizards rookie Deni Avdija suffered a serious-looking injury to his right ankle and was taken from the court in a wheelchair during Washington's 118-114 victory over Golden State on Wednesday night. Avdija landed awkwardly after missing a layup late in the second quarter. He lay on the floor for several minutes and teammate Jordan Bell came off the bench to cover his lower leg with a jersey. Wizards employees carefully helped Avdija into the wheelchair and he was taken off the court while rubbing his head with a towel. Washington selected the 20-year-old Avdija out of his native Israel with the ninth pick in last year's draft. The 6-foot-9 small forward is averaging 6.3 points and 4.9 rebounds. Coach Scott Brooks said he wasn't sure whether Avdija would be able to return this season. “I'm hoping for the best," Brooks said. ___ More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/hub/nba and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press
