Under pressure Federal Liberals to support NDP motion on child welfare

first_imgAPTN National NewsThe federal Liberals plan to support an NDP motion on First Nations child welfare when it comes up for a House of Commons vote on Tuesday_ a decision that follows political pressure from the former chairman of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.News of the Liberal support came in a tweet from Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett Monday.Our gov’t is committed to a child-centered overhaul of the FN child welfare system. Libs will vote in favour of motion tomorrow #cdnpoli— Carolyn Bennett (@Carolyn_Bennett) October 31, 2016The government also says it is willing to sit down with the parties in the case.“The federal government is open to entering into a facilitated process and agrees such a process could support us in working together to find timely, meaningful solutions to implement and respond to the issues raised by the tribunal,” Bennett said in a letter to the Canadian Human Rights Commission dated Oct. 29.In a strongly worded written comments obtained by The Canadian Press, Sen. Murray Sinclair said he cannot overstate the importance of the federal government immediately complying with legal orders from the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal.“Canada’s discriminatory policies have led to greater failed and failing interventions into the lives of Indigenous families than the residential schools and serious changes must be undertaken,” Sinclair said.“Immediate action is required,” he said. “I encourage members of the House to support the motion proposed by member of Parliament Charlie Angus.”In September, the commission urged the parties to resolve their dispute without further legal action.The NDP motion calls for an immediate $155-million investment and a funding plan for future years.It also urges the government to adopt Jordan’s Principle, which says no Aboriginal child should suffer denial, delay or disruption of health services available to other children because of jurisdictional feuds.The principle is named after Jordan River Anderson, a five-year-old boy with complex needs who died in hospital in 2005 after a two-year battle between the federal and Manitoba governments over his home care costs.“This is about our historic obligations to repair the damage that has been done to generations of First Nations families and children,” Angus said.The Liberals seem to be moving to adopt a more open version of Jordan’s Principle.Under the previous Conservative government under Stephen Harper, there were no reported Jordan’s Principle cases.But during a technical meeting with Health Canada officials last week, the government has identified 900 cases across the country.The tribunal decision, issued in January, found the federal government discriminates against First Nations children in the way it delivers child welfare services on reserves.It has since issued two legal orders urging action from the Liberals.The tribunal only issues these orders due to a lack of compliance, said Cindy Blackstock _ a First Nations child advocate who, along with the Assembly of First Nations, spent nine years fighting the government on the issue.“If the government was in full compliance with the orders, there would been no need at all for the tribunal to point to increasing measures that they have to comply with and demanding that the federal government report back that they have indeed met those measures.”Prior to a debate in the Commons on the motion last week, Bennett announced that a new special representative will lead national discussions on the reform of First Nations child welfare services.Cynthia Wesley-Esquimaux _ a Lakehead University professor and a Liberal candidate in the 2011 election _ is to advise the government as it works with provinces, territories and child welfare agencies on an overhaul of the system.Officials at the Indigenous Affairs Department insist government funding is being phased in over time deliberately because it has heard from agencies about the challenges of hiring and retaining staff, as well as the need for time to roll out new programs.Blackstock said she has yet to find one report that recommends an adviser despite more than 20 years experience on the file.“What is necessary is that Canada invests in equity at the level of other children, providing prevention services that meets the needs of these kids and acts on the recommendations on the books,” Blackstock said.Sinclair’s comments highlight the immediate need to address the underfunding in First Nations child welfare, she added.“Reconciliation means not saying sorry twice,” Blackstock said. “That’s what Justice Sinclair is reminding of us of. When I went to the TRC hearings, I heard survivor after survivor after survivor saying ‘I’m telling this story so it doesn’t happen to my grandkids.’ And it is happening to their grandkids.”news@aptn.ca — with files from the Canadian Presslast_img read more

British PM Johnsons own brother quits government says hes torn between family

Britain’s opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn speaks during a shadow cabinet meeting in Salford, Britain, Sept. 2, 2019. Already, the crisis has for three years overshadowed European Union affairs, eroded Britain’s reputation as a stable pillar of the West and seen sterling twitch in tune to the probability of a ‘no-deal’ exit.Asked if Brexit would happen on Oct. 31, Johnson’s belligerent senior adviser Dominic Cummings, a focus of many departing Conservative lawmakers’ grievances, told Reuters: “Trust the people.”A spokesman for the prime minister said his speech would make the case that “it is now time for the people to decide after parliament has failed them, so we can resolve this once and for all.”“Jeremy Corbyn continues not only to block Brexit but is now also stopping the people having their say by refusing a general election.” LONDON — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s plan to kick off what is in effect an election campaign casting parliament as the enemy of Brexit was overshadowed on Thursday when his younger brother quit the government, citing the national interest.As the United Kingdom spins towards an election, Brexit remains up in the air more than three years after Britons voted to leave the bloc in a 2016 referendum. Options range from a turbulent ‘no-deal’ exit to abandoning the whole endeavour.Ahead of a speech in northern England where the prime minister was expected to begin an informal election campaign, his own brother, Jo, resigned as a junior business minister and said he was stepping down as a lawmaker for their Conservative Party.“In recent weeks I’ve been torn between family loyalty and the national interest — it’s an unresolvable tension & time for others to take on my roles,” he tweeted. The 47-year-old has been in parliament since 2010, serving in several ministerial roles.The move comes in a frenetic week for his older brother.After wresting control of the lower house of parliament on Wednesday, an alliance of opposition parties and rebels expelled from Johnson’s Conservative party voted to force him to seek a three-month delay to Brexit rather than leaving without a deal on Oct. 31, the date now set in law.Since taking office in July, Boris Johnson has tried to corral the Conservative Party, which is openly fighting over Brexit, behind his strategy of leaving the European Union on Oct. 31 at all costs, with or without a deal.On Tuesday, he expelled 21 Conservative lawmakers from the party for failing to back his Brexit strategy, including Winston Churchill’s grandson and two former finance ministers.Election loomsBehind the sound and the fury of the immediate crisis, an election now beckons for a polarized country.The main choices on offer are Johnson’s insistence on leaving the EU on Oct. 31, come what may, and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s hard-left socialist vision, coupled with a promise of a fresh referendum with an option to stay in the EU. The opposition Labour Party cast Johnson’s language — including calling Corbyn a “chicken” – as pathetic, said he was trying to act like U.S. President Donald Trump, and compared him to a 3-year-old toddler having a tantrum.Against the dollar, the pound rose 0.7% to $1.2337, after jumping 1.4% on Wednesday on the sense that the prospect of a ‘no-deal’ exit had receded. UBS Global Wealth Management said sterling could rally to $1.30 if Brexit was delayed until January 2020 and an election was held after October.“Trust the people”Johnson, the face of the 2016 Vote Leave campaign, has pushed for an election on Oct. 15, two weeks before the United Kingdom is due to leave the EU, though opposition parties are debating which date they would accept.“We are saying, yeah, bring on a general election, of course,” said John McDonnell, the Labour Party’s second most powerful man.

Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson speaks during Prime Minister’s Questions session in the House of Commons in London, Britain Sept. 4, 2019. Parliament/Jessica Taylor/Reuters “We will ensure that happens after we have got the legislation to protect against a ‘no-deal’ Brexit. But we will consult and do it on at the date on which we will think will have maximum advantage against a ‘no-deal’,” he said.While sterling rose on parliament’s bid to block a no-deal exit, an election before Brexit would allow him, if he won, to repeal the blocking bill, which was passed by 329-300 and then 327-299 in the House of Commons on Wednesday. The law will pass the upper house, the Lords, by Friday evening.Diplomats said an election campaign would halt any Brexit talks with the EU and expressed frustration with the turmoil in British politics at such an important juncture in European history.“The UK side continues to produce chaos and it is very hard to predict anything,” said one EU diplomat.

UNESCO chief deeply regrets Israels decision to withdraw from agency

Noting that she had received official notice from the Government of Israel’s withdrawal from the agency effective on 31 December 2018, a decision which was announced on 12 October 2017, UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay expressed regret, saying she was convinced that it “is inside UNESCO and not outside it” that States can best seek to overcome differences in the its fields of competence.“A Member of UNESCO since 1949, Israel has a rightful place inside the United Nations agency that is dedicated to education, culture and science,” she continued, adding that Israel has a rightful place inside an institution committed to the defence of freedom of expression, the prevention of all forms of antisemitism and racism, which has developed a unique programme of education about the Holocaust and the prevention of genocide. Israel also has a rightful place inside an institution that is among the most active in promoting dialogue among cultures, fighting violent extremism and conserving heritage affected, notably, by the destructive acts of terrorist organizations.“In the face of disagreements among Member States, which lead to votes for which they are responsible, engaging fully in the work of UNESCO makes possible sustained dialogue, cooperation and partnerships that are more necessary than ever and that I committed to support when I took office,” Ms. Azoulay concluded. read more

A Year later Kareem Walkin memorialized by MP for Wheeland District

first_img Overgrown bush moved by MPs and TCEM Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:basketball court, delroy williams, kareem walking Wheeland Pond gets make over Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 18 Jul 2015 – Member of Parliament for Wheeland constituency has honoured TCI teenager and names the recently refurbished Wheeland Basketball Court in his memory; a sign with Kareem’s name emblazoned upon it now sits at the site. It was June 2014 that the Wheeland basketball court got its finishing touches with the two NBA caliber backboards erected and the painting all done; hours later with the fun winding down at the Middle Caicos Crab Festival, Kareem, who was freshly home from university, was in a terrible accident that took his life and saw three others injured. The vehicle overturned that fateful day; 19 year old Kareem did not make it and is said to have died instantly. There has been no official statement on the decision to name the recreation spot in honor of the young man whom we lost on June 28; but a few residents on the court seemed impressed and pleased with the gesture by Hon. Delroy Williams, his wife and other sponsors listed on the new sign. Recommended for you PDM Shadow Minister says TCIs Infrastructure is Crumblinglast_img read more

Local firm to begin dismantling dock from Japan

first_imgIt’s not the biggest job that -Ballard Diving and Salvage has taken on, but it’s an important one that few contractors are capable of doing.That’s how Eric Muller, director of marketing and sales for the company sees the task of dismantling a dock from Japan that washed ashore at Agate Beach near Newport, Ore., in June.The dock wafted out to sea from the Japanese port city of Misawa during the March 2011 tsunami.It’s out of the water now, but the presence of tides raises contractual issues that leave some contractors on the sidelines, Muller said. By contrast, Ballard has in-water work know-how. “That’s where we come into play,” he said.The company won an $84,000 contract to do the job of cutting the 66-foot-long, seven-foot-tall dock into five sections and then using a crane to load the sections onto trucks for transport to an off-site location for final demolition and recycling.Ballard’s work, which could be completed in as few as two days, begins midafternoon Wednesday. The company, which employs more than 150 commercial divers, has expertise in industrial diving and responding to salvage projects. It was the lead contractor in the dismantling of the broken barge Davy Crockett, the former fixture on the Columbia River near Camas.last_img read more

Growth in Southeastern Connecticut Regional Council Seeks Firms for JLUS Implementation Project

first_imgThe Southeastern Connecticut Council of Governments is looking for proposals to prepare a joint land use study (JLUS) implementation project for Naval Submarine Base New London consisting of a land use, zoning and transportation study for the town of Groton; and a regional analysis and long-range plan to accommodate growth and address compatibility issues related to the anticipated expansion of submarine shipbuilding in the region, specifically in the areas of housing and transportation. Responses to the RFP/RFQ are due Aug. 31. … The second part of the project is needed to help the region prepare to accommodate a surge of new residents as the workforce at Electric Boat, located in Groton, Conn., is projected to grow by 5,000 within 10 years to meet new demand for the production of Virginia-class and Columbia-class submarines. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) helped secure an additional $182,000 from the Office of Economic Analysis to assess how the influx could strain the housing supply, roadways and public transit system. “This study is a good first step to make sure we’re ahead of the game when it comes to addressing these critically important housing and infrastructure needs in southeastern Connecticut,” Murphy said in a written statement. He raised the issue about the lack of available affordable housing for sailors at the sub base and workers at Electric Boat during a hearing of the Senate Military Construction-Veterans Affairs Appropriations Subcommittee earlier this year.Navy photo by Petty Officer 1st Class Steven Hoskins Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

BNP policymakers meet Saturday

first_imgKhaleda ZiaBNP chairperson Khaleda Zia has convened a meeting of her party’s standing committee on Saturday as a Dhaka court fixed date for pronouncing verdict in a graft case filed against her reports UNB.The meeting of the BNP policy-making body is scheduled to begin around 8:30pm at the BNP chairperson’s Gulshan office, party senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi told UNB on Friday.He said the meeting will discuss the country’s overall political situation and latest developments.A BNP standing committee member wishing anonymity said they will mainly discuss the issues relating to the probable court verdict in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case and work out the party’s next course of action.He said they will elaborately discuss the possible measures to face any evolving political situation if their chairperson is ‘unlawfully’ convicted.”It’ll be a very crucial meeting, and we may take a decision to launch a decisive movement if our chairperson is deprived of justice,” the BNP leader said.On Thursday, the special court-5 in Dhaka fixed 8 February to deliver verdict in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case against Khaleda and five others.In July 2008, the Anti-Corruption Commission filed the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case with Ramna police station accusing six people, including Khaleda Zia, of abusing power in raising funds for the trust from unknown sources.Hours after the court fixed date for delivering verdict, BNP senior leaders warned that their party will take to the streets with strong agitation programmes if Khaleda is illegitimately convicted.Khaleda will be disqualified for the next general election if she is convicted in the case.On Thursday, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir feared that the verdicts in graft case will be pronounced ‘as per the prime minister’s desire’. Another UNB reports says: BNP senior leader Gayeshwar Chandra Roy on Friday warned that the consequence will be very ‘bad’ if the court gives any negative verdict on the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case filed against their chairperson Khaleda Zia.”I think the foundation stone for the fall of the government will get set up if any negative verdict is pronounced by the court at the behest of it (government) on 8 February,” he said.Speaking at a discussion, the BNP leader also said a disastrous situation may be created in the country if Khaleda is convicted, no matterwhether BNP announces any formal action programme or not.Nagorik Odhikar Andolon, a pro-BNP platform, arranged the programme at the Jatiya Press Club, marking the third death anniversary of Arafat Rahman Koko, the younger son of BNP founder Ziaur Rahman.”On Thursday, the Special Court-5 in Dhaka fixed February 8 to deliver verdict on the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case against Khaleda and 5 others.In July 2008, the Anti-Corruption Commission filed the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case with Ramna police station accusing four people, including Khaleda Zia, of abusing power in raising funds for the trust from unknown sources. Khaleda will be disqualified for the next general election if she is convicted in the case.Gayeshwar, a BNP standing committee member, said people will come up with a befitting reply if the government tries to take political revenge on Khaleda using the court.He alleged that Awami League is making various plots to keep their party away from the next polls as the ruling party has no ability to contest against BNP.About the schedule for the presidential election, he said though the president’s post is very important, people have no interest in the polls as the president has no power to play any role during the country’s crisis. ‘Khaleda’s conviction may invite dire consequences’last_img read more

first_imgIn one of her last acts as president, Laura Chinchilla signed a free trade agreement with Colombia on Monday. Her signature brings Costa Rica one step closer to full membership in the Pacific Alliance, a Latin American trade bloc of some of the region’s most important economies.“Costa Rica’s integration into the Pacific Alliance will guarantee that a small nation can stand with a bloc of allied nations with greater relative weight in the global economy, with greater prestige in geopolitical terms in our region, with an economy of scale to promote collective efforts and, above all, to survive in the environment of large alliances that will define the world in the coming years,” Chinchilla said.In February, Chinchilla traveled to Cartagena, Colombia, to sign an agreement setting Costa Rica on a path to join the Latin America trade bloc made up of Mexico, Colombia, Peru and Chile. The Pacific Alliance accounts for 50 percent of the population in Latin America and represents a market of 212 million.Chinchilla’s administration pursued free trade agreements, including the Pacific Alliance, during her term from 2010 to 2014. In October 2013, Costa Rica signed a free trade agreement between Central American nations and the European Union.Colombia was the last remaining alliance country with which Costa Rica did not share a free trade agreement.Commercial activity between Costa Rica and Colombia grew by 65 percent during the last decade, from $239 million in 2003 to $394 million in 2013, according to a statement from Casa Presidencial. Most goods traded between the countries include food stuffs, medicine and medical supplies, among other goods.Chinchilla leaves office Thursday, handing over power to President-elect Luis Guillermo Solís, of the Citizen Action Party.

who served in a unit in the Bosnia conflict that committed atrocities That was for immigration fraud We didnt have that possibility in the Nazi cases because theyd immigrated so long ago that the

and Guatemala Is there anything that your office has learned from pursuing the Nazi cases that can specifically be applied to this pursuit of other war criminals One of them is the importance of
