Trudeau respects Kangs decision to resign wont say if he asked him

first_imgSASKATOON – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he respects the decision of Calgary MP Darshan Kang to step away from the Liberal caucus while sexual harassment allegations against him are investigated.But Trudeau won’t say whether he personally asked Kang to resign.Kang said he’s leaving the governing party’s caucus to focus his efforts on clearing his name.He resigned from caucus Thursday night, shortly after The Hill Times reported that a woman who worked in Kang’s constituency office when he was a member of the Alberta legislature has come forward alleging she was sexually harassed.The woman alleged in an interview that Kang grabbed her breasts, among other inappropriate behaviour, and would not desist in the harassment despite repeatedly being asked to stop.Kang, who was elected federally in 2015, is already under investigation after a young woman who worked in his federal constituency office complained in June of sexual harassment.That woman’s father told the Toronto Star earlier this week that Kang allegedly offered the staffer as much as $100,000 if she didn’t tell her parents about the harassment. The Star cited the woman’s father, who was not named, alleging that Kang repeatedly harassed his daughter over a period of four or five years.Among the father’s accusations: Kang gave his daughter unwanted hugs, stroked or held her hand, once took her to an apartment where he tried to remove her jacket and followed her the next day to her hotel and tried to get into her room to talk.When asked about Kang Friday, Trudeau said the House of Commons has a processes for investigating harassment complaints that respects both the complainant’s and the respondent’s rights.Under that process, adopted in December 2014, when there is no mediated resolution to a harassment complaint, an external investigator is hired to review the facts.Either the complainant or the respondent can appeal if they’re unsatisfied with the investigator’s final report.“The whip’s office in my party has been engaged in this process and we are allowing this process to unfold as it must. I won’t have anymore comments to make on this specifically other than to say that I respect Mr. Kang’s decision to step away from the Liberal caucus while this process is being undergone,” Trudeau said.“As a feminist, I am pleased that there is a process in place and I am allowing that process to unfold as it must.”Sheila Malcolmson, federal NDP critic for the Status of Women, accused Trudeau of hiding behind process.“He should have taken action when he first learned of these troubling allegations instead of dodging questions for three weeks,” she said in a statement Friday.Alberta Liberal Leader David Khan said the allegations are “deeply concerning.”“The behaviour alleged is repugnant and has no place in society,” Khan said in a statement Friday afternoon.He said the party will do an internal investigation and relevant information will be passed on to all those bodies that are investigating.“Until there is any additional information or findings by an investigative body, we will not be making any further comment on this matter.”A spokesman for the Speaker of the Alberta legislature said that office only became aware of the Alberta allegations through the Hill Times report and could not comment further because it’s a human resources matter.last_img read more

Collapsed FOB to be dismantled first probe report in 24 hours

first_imgMumbai: A day after a foot overbridge connected to CSMT railway station collapsed, killing six persons and injuring 31, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has decided to dismantle the structure. In a meeting chaired by BMC commissioner Ajoy Mehta Friday morning, it was also decided that the civic body’s Chief Engineer (Vigilance) would conduct an inquiry into the causes that led to the deck of the FOB collapsing on Thursday evening. Ward Officer Kiran Dighawkar said work on dismantling the FOB had begun and cranes and gas-cutters had been assembled for the work.

Another official said the Chief Engineer (Vigilance) has been asked to submit his preliminary report within 24 hours identifying staff responsible and the role of those who carried out its structural audit. The scope of the probe would include the history of the bridge, the time when the structural audit was carried out, and whether the methodology used was appropriate and staff deployed had adequate technical expertise, the official informed.

The FOB that collapsed on Thursday was marked C2B. This means it needed minor repairs only. Tenders were floated for the repair but it got held up,” the official had said Friday morning. After a visit to the site Friday morning, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had asked Mehta to fix “primary responsibility” for Thursday’s foot overbridge collapse by evening.last_img read more

The Latest Emirates says it is sad to see end of A380

TOULOUSE, France — The Latest on European aviation giant Airbus’ announcement that it will stop making its superjumbo A380 (all times local):6:35 a.m.The long-haul carrier Emirates says it has struck a deal valued at $21.4 billion with Airbus, while saying it is sad to see the end of production of the double-decker A380 jetliner.Emirates made the announcement Thursday at the same time that Airbus in Toulouse, France announced the end of the iconic airliner’s production.The Dubai government-owned airline, based out of the world’s busiest airport for international travel, had the A380 as the backbone of its fleet.Emirates says it will receive 14 more A380s until the end of 2021, taking its total A380 orders to 123. The airline will purchase 40 A330-900 aircraft and 30 A350-900s.___6:15 a.m.European aviation giant Airbus says it will stop making its superjumbo A380 in 2021 after struggling to sell the world’s biggest passenger jet.Airbus said in a statement Thursday that Emirates is cutting back its orders for the plane and as a result “we have no substantial A380 backlog and hence no basis to sustain production.”The decision is a boon for rival Boeing and a blow for Airbus. Airbus had hoped the A380 would squeeze out Boeing’s 747 and revolutionize air travel as more people take to the skies.Instead, airlines have been cautious about committing to the costly plane, so huge that airports had to build new runways and modify terminals to accommodate it. The double-decker planes started flying in 2008 and seat more than 500 passengers.The Associated Press read more

Canadian manufacturing sales fall 18 per cent in June breaking winning streak

OTTAWA — Canadian manufacturing sales fell in June following three consecutive months of gains, with declines led by the petroleum and coal industry.Manufacturing sales slipped 1.8 per cent overall to $53.9 billion in June, Statistics Canada said Thursday in a monthly report.Sales also fell 1.0 per cent in constant dollars, indicating a lower volume of manufactured goods was sold in June.“After several strong months, the Canadian manufacturing sector hit a speedbump in June with sizable declines in both value and volume terms,” TD Bank senior economist Michael Dolega wrote in a report.The June report did not alter TD’s view for the second quarter but suggested a “marked deceleration of growth” for the third quarter is in the cards, Dolega added.The weaker-than-expected manufacturing report follows a series of strong economic data to start the year and the Bank of Canada’s decision last month to raise its key interest rate target for the first time since 2010.Manufacturing sales fell in 15 of 21 industries, representing 72.1 per cent of the manufacturing sector in Canada in June.The petroleum and coal product industry fell 7.1 per cent to $4.6 billion in June, following a 3.0 per cent drop in May due to lower prices and lower volumes.The transportation equipment industry slipped 2.3 per cent to $11.3 billion in June, while the chemical industry dropped 4.5 per cent to $4.3 billion.Statistics Canada said manufacturing sales fell in eight provinces in June, led by Ontario and Quebec.Ontario saw a drop of 1.7 per cent to $25.9 billion, the largest decrease in the province since May 2016, while Quebec fell 3.3 per cent to $12.3 billion.Sales in Manitoba rose 6.0 per cent to $1.6 billion and British Columbia gained 0.9 per cent to $4.2 billion. read more

Cooling in Canadian home prices will result in winners and losers CIBC

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Cooling in Canadian home prices will result in winners and losers: CIBC by News Staff Posted Nov 29, 2012 12:45 pm MDT Canada|cooling|home prices|negative|positive The CIBC is out with a report, which states that a cooling in Canadian home prices may not be as bad as it sounds. While the report suggests slower home sales will take a bite out of economic growth, there may be winners as well as losers across the economy. CIBC’s chief economist Avery Shenfeld said this means homeowners may have to lower retirement spending if their property brings in less money when it’s sold. However, for first time buyers, it’s a welcome let-up in prices which may leave them with more money for retail spending. This report is the latest in a series from CIBC which downplays some of the concerns about the potential for a U.S.-style crash in residential real-estate. Pessimistic analysts are warning that certain types of real-estate in some markets are overpriced and risk falling into a rapid decline. However, the consensus appears to be that if there is a correction, it will likely have a softer landing than what happened south of the border. read more

LETTER Majority of citizens want President to move ahead and appoint

Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedLETTER: No justifiable reason for delay in appointing GECOM ChairSeptember 8, 2017In “latest news”Granger’s criteria for GECOM Chairmanship would constitute Presidential malfeasance – RamsammyMarch 23, 2017In “Opinion”Diaspora urges President Granger to appoint GECOM Chair without any further delaysSeptember 21, 2017In “latest news” Dear Editor,An opinion survey I conducted for the North American Caribbean Teachers Association (NACTA) last week found that the overwhelming majority of the nation wants President David David Granger to appoint, without any further delay, the Chair of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) from the latest (third) list of six nominees submitted by Opposition Leader Dr Bharrat Jagdeo last month.GECOM has been without a Chair since last February when Dr Steve Surujbally resigned from the position. The Commission’s critical election work has been largely suspended since that time. Jagdeo nominated twelve potential chairpersons, all of whom were rejected by the President as not being “fit and proper” because they were not all (former or sitting) judges or potential judges. The Chief Justice recently ruled that the Chair does not have to be a judge as President Granger had required.Dr Jagdeo then submitted a third list comprising a judge, potential judges and a former GECOM Chair). Almost all of the respondents interviewed in the poll are in agreement with the Chief Justice that any fit and proper person can be appointed Chair of GECOM and that the nominee or appointee does not have to be a judge. They are of the view that all 18 nominees of the Opposition Leader are qualified to be Chair of Gecom and that the President should not further hold up the appointment from the latest list.Voters express suspicion that the Government is dragging its feet on the appointment of GECOM Chair as a strategy to delay elections due by mid-2020 because without a Chair GECOM cannot engage in registration of voters and prepare a new list for an election. Respondents also voiced concerns that without a Chair, there could be contamination of the electoral list with ineligible registrants that could affect the outcome of an election.The poll randomly interviewed 392 likely voters to yield a demographically representative sample (43% Indians, 30% Africans, 16% Mixed, 10% Amerindians, and 1% other races) of the population. The poll, using the live interview method, was coordinated by Dr Vishnu Bisram, pollster, newspaper columnist, and educator in NY. The results of the poll were analyzed at a 95 per cent significance level and a statistical sampling error of plus or minus four percentage points was found.Asked if they support the ruling of the Chief Justice that the Chair of GECOM can be any fit and proper person who is not necessarily a judge, former judge or qualified to be a judge, 79% concur with only 3% disagreeing and 18% not offering a response (largely not having knowledge about the issue).Asked if the President should appoint the GECOM Chair now, 85% said yes, with 2% saying no, and 13% not offering an opinion. But many expressed reservations on whether the President will proceed to appoint a Chair because they feel he wants to choose his own person to head the electoral body.More findings will be released in another report.Sincerely,Vishnu Bisram read more

Greek generic drugs prices sky high

first_imgWhile Health Minister Adonis Georgiadis may claim that doctors are ‘partying’ at the expense of patients, his ministry’s pricing rules for generic drugs means patients and insurance funds pay much more than their counterparts in SwedenGeneric drugs sold in Greece can cost up to 880% times the price of the same medicines in more affluent Sweden due to the pricing system followed by the health ministry, Eleftherotypia has revealed.The health ministry has repeatedly claimed that doctors are frustrating the government’s aim to reach a point where 60% of all drugs prescribed are generic. But the pricing system followed by the government means that the difference between patent and generic drugs is insignificant compared to Sweden, where half of all prescriptions are generic.Under current rules, when the patent expires on a particular medicine, the price of drug is reduced by 50%, based on the highest price it once had on the market.Similarly, under the same rules, the generic drug costs 40% of the original price of the patented drug.Thus, if one patented drug cost €10 a pack, its off-patent price would be €5 and the generic equivalent €4 – a minimal price difference.These rates are fixed, meaning that the rules applied to patented drugs – that they must cost the average of the three lowest prices of the drugs in other EU countries – do not apply.The situation has attracted the attention of the troika, which has called on the health minister to change the pricing system for off-patent drugs so that they too are in line with the three lowest prices available elsewhere in the EU.

EA lets GOG offer Dungeon Keeper for free for 48 hours

first_imgThere’s a reason EA repeatedly gets voted the worst company in America. It’s due to the, quite frankly, stupid decisions it keeps making about the games it releases. SimCity anyone?The latest of those came in the form of a free-to-play version of Dungeon Keeper on mobile devices, which saw you waiting hours to perform very simple tasks. There was further controversy over the review manipulation EA has implemented on the Android version of the game.Of course, EA has dismissed any wrong doing publicly and will carry on doing what EA always does. But the publisher must be feeling a little bit bad because it has agreed to allow GOG.com to launch a pretty sweet offer: for the next two days you can download Dungeon Keeper Gold for PC and Mac completely free. And as it’s the Gold version you get the Deeper Dungeons expansion included.If that wasn’t enough to satiate you, GOG is also offering a 75% discount on Dungeon Keeper 2, meaning you can pick it up for just $1.49. The game includes a level editor if you get the urge to expand on the experience yourself.GOG realizes that the offer of Dungeon Keeper for free is going to put a massive strain on its servers, so they’ve taken a different approach to linking the title with your account. Instead of taking you directly to the checkout process when adding the game to your cart, an email will be sent to you with a link. Click the link, get the game. Simple.Due to the popularity of the offer you could be waiting some time for your email to arrive, so don’t hang about going to claim your copy. As long as you click the link on the homepage before the 48 hour period is up, you should get the game for free even if the email turns up after it has finished.last_img read more

Chile bombings shake Latin Americas model nation

first_imgNothing like the whiff of cordite to set a society on a forensic soul-searching mission: Two explosions in Chile last week — one near aSantiago metro station, the other in a supermarket in Viña del Mar — have shaken this mostly peaceable nation like an Andean temblor and left much of Latin America perplexed.Violence is hardly new in Chile, and almost routine this time of year, when Chileans remember the coup d’etat of Sept. 11, 1973. Though it’s been 41 years, the wounds are still fresh from the military dictatorship that lasted until 1990, took more than 40,000 lives, and “disappeared” many more.But unlike the odd petard in the night set off by vandals or millenarian misfits, the latest attacks were more deadly — the one in Santiago injured 14 people, some of them seriously. For the first time since the fall of General Augusto Pinochet, talk of “terrorism” headlines the news, prompting some Chileans to argue that the authorities should weigh reactivating the junta’s intelligence police. Police investigators are still scouring the rubble for clues and suspects.Few nations have done as much to disarm the social and political ordnance that lies strewn across Latin America. This land of 17.4 million boasts one of the highest per capita incomes in the region, and also the best performance by school children, a minuscule illiteracy rate, plunging poverty and a culture of political civility that has kept the country stable, democratic and prosperous even as government toggles from the staunch right to socialist left.Look closely, however, and the Andean idyll seems like a dream deferred. Chile’s achievements are enviable for Latin America, but Chileans no longer want to be merely the best among the least. Many are dogged by their status as the last among best. Chile has the worst income inequality in the high-income nations of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. Its 15-year-olds scored below average on OECD standardized problem solving tests, placing 36th of 44 among these elite nations. Tourists walk at the Cerro Astillero, which overviews the port of Valparaíso, Chile, on Sept. 13, 2014. Valparaíso is one of the most important South American ports on the Pacific Ocean. Martin Bernetti/AFPChile is right to be proud of its hybrid education system, which turned over public schools to private initiative and saw universities multiply and the number of students rise 10-fold since the 1980s. But the market-friendly solution also forced students into taking exorbitant loans. Millions of students hit the streets in 2011, bringing the government of then-President Sebastián Piñera almost to its knees. Bachelet, a socialist, rode the rebel wave to the ballot box promising free universal education, which her legislative majority has just brought a step closer by passing a sweeping tax reform.With the economy slowing, however, business leaders are underwhelmed — not least over the prospect of losing the Taxable Profit Fund, or FUT, which allows companies to decant earnings into reinvestment. Bachelet’s critics say that slashing the FUT will slow growth and curb investment.Maybe so, but Chile’s corporate elite has its own problems. For starters, it’s less clear just how the FUT has kicked in to the Chilean economy. In a recent visit to Chile, Ricardo Hausmann, the former chief economist for the Inter-American Development Bank told Revista Capital that despite the $270 billion corporate honey pot, Chile’s private sector has “one of the lowest rates of research and development in the OECD.”The larger problem may be one of complacency. Despite Chile’s reputation as the most open economy in Latin America and its 150 years of plumbing the Andes for copper, it is still not a global player. “If Chile were so good at extracting minerals, there would be Chileans mining abroad,” Hausmann said.Of course, protesters don’t get juiced over innovation and no one sets off a bomb because of lackluster productivity. But the seething in September is an unsettling reminder for Latin America’s model country that there is much left to be done.Margolis is Brazil bureau chief for Vocativ.© 2014, Bloomberg News Facebook Comments Related posts:Sentencing in Chile begins to bring closure in 41-year-old murder cases of US citizens Frank Teruggi and Charles Horman Latin America, Israel trade after trading insults One dead in latest Chile bombing After 30 years, mother hopes for justice in son’s murder during Chilean protestlast_img read more

TravelManagers Famil Delivers Best of Oahu

first_imgTravelManagers’ Famil Delivers Best of OahuTravelManagers’ Famil Delivers Best of OahuFor many of the personal travel managers (PTMs) who attended TravelManagers’ recent annual national conference in Honolulu, the chance to extend their stay and join one of the pre- or post-conference famils was too great to pass up. For thirteen participants, this entailed a four-day, three nights experiencing the highlights of the island of Oahu, from outrigger canoe surfing at Waikiki Beach to a tour of some of Hollywood’s most famous movie locations at Kualoa Private Nature Reserve.TravelManagers’ exclusive pre-conference famil included hotel inspections at luxury properties such as Honolulu’s Kahala Hotel and Resort – Erin Beckford, Melanie Carter and Kate Bevan (L-R)For PTM Kate Bevan, who is representative for Croydon, VIC, the group’s time on Oahu’s famous North Shore was one of the main highlights of the famil, and something she now feels confident in recommending to her clients.“The beaches of the North Shore are lovely from the ground, but to see them from the air was even more amazing,” Bevan says of her first-ever helicopter ride. “I also really enjoyed our lunch at Turtle Bay Resort – it’s such a scenic spot that I could happily have spent much longer there, stand up paddle-boarding or just swimming in the lovely lagoon.”Bevan’s fellow PTM, Kerry Cleasby, last visited Hawaii twenty years ago, and appreciated the opportunity to revisit Oahu and refresh her memories and knowledge of the destination.“I had forgotten how naturally beautiful Waikiki is, with pristine beaches and water, a striking mountain backdrop and so much to do,” she reports.Cleasby, who is representative for South Brisbane, QLD, says her visit also gave her a fresh perspective on selling Hawaii as a family destination – knowledge that she is looking forward to passing on to her clients.“When you’re travelling with kids, it’s the details that make a difference – such as which hotels and room types are suitable for having two or three kids in the room, what family-friendly activities are on offer, and where to find the best family-friendly restaurants.”The famil, which was exclusive to TravelManagers, was hosted by Hawaii Tourism Oceania (HTO), who created an itinerary that showcased the best of Oahu on the ground and from the air, but also ensured that participants departed Hawaii with plenty of local knowledge to pass on to their clients, including which resort had the most amazing pool, how to manage tipping and where to find a great happy hour.“I’ll definitely be coming back to Oahu,” declares Erin Beckford, who is representative for Anna Bay, NSW. “The experiences and food were amazing, and I now know where to stay and what to do – although I may need a bigger budget next time around!”On day three of the famil, the group paid a visit to the Polynesian Cultural Center where, as well as a site tour and dinner, they were treated to the HA The Breath of Life show. This dazzling demonstration of Polynesian dance and music brings together more than 100 local performers, special effects, animation and surround sound to provide visitors with an unforgettable taste of Hawaiian culture and story-telling.“The show was amazing,” enthuses Bevan. “It was well put-together and informative, and the demonstration with the fire-knives had me holding my breath!”Of course, no visit to Oahu would be complete without some serious shopping and eating. Their visit conveniently coincided with Hawaii’s 24th annual Made in Hawaii festival: a wonderful opportunity to pick up all manner of Hawaiian-made products.“I also loved wandering around the International Marketplace,” says Bevan. “The Street Party pass was an excellent way to be able to sample amazing food from the hawker stations in the Street Food Hall.With a fresh perspective on Oahu as a destination, the PTMs all report that they would happily return, with families in tow next time.“We were treated like VIPs everywhere we went,” says Cleasby. “We experienced some amazing restaurants and hotels and, having had a fresh look at what Hawaii has to offer, I think this would be a great family holiday.”In the meantime, at least one of the PTMs has returned home with a small souvenir that will serve as a daily reminder of her time in Oahu.“I’ve always wanted a swaying hula girl like the ones you see on car dashboards,” grins Bevan. “Now I’ve got one on my desk.”For more information or to speak to someone confidentially about TravelManagers please contact Suzanne Laister on 1800 019 599.

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 0 Comments   Share   Make no mistake, if the Cards are going to run the ball more and get Andre Ellington touches, their defense has got to keep them in games and not allow opponents to get leads and make Carson & Co. one dimensional. But if Todd Bowles’ defense continues to play the way they have in the first half of the season, B.A. will continue to pound the ball more and more.B.A. is an excellent coach with a great offensive mind; he does like to throw the ball and he is dogmatic…but he’s not delusional. – / 18 Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The Carson Palmer pick occurred at the 5:47 mark of the first quarter. From that point forward, Big Red had 50 more snaps and threw the ball only 13 times. Andre Ellington and Stepfan Taylor became the focal point of the offense. Much of this had to do with the success the Cards were having on the ground, but maybe there was something more? I think it’s very possible that B.A. had an epiphany: he can’t keep putting his defense in bad situations and expect to win games. Palmer has thrown 14 interceptions, and many of them have led to points for opposing offenses. The defense has been very good all year. Not only have they done an excellent job creating turnovers, shutting down the run and holding teams to minimal points on sudden change, where the offense turns the ball over and the defense is right back on the field, but they have proven to be the strength of this team. And Bruce Arians will be the first one to admit it. There was another interesting byproduct that came out of channeling Lombardi: Carson Palmer started playing well. He was truly in a three-dimensional offense. And Palmer rallied himself — as he has a few times this season. He played much better the rest of the way. He threw two touchdown passes to Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd that were as good as you could execute. He settled down and managed the game. And maybe this is the type of offense he needs to be in at this point of his career? Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Many coaches fall into the trap of their system, their philosophy, their belief about the style of football they wish to play and see any deviation from that dogma as capitulation.That’s why I was so impressed with B.A. on Sunday. He morphed into Vince Lombardi.The Cardinals started the game by throwing the ball five times in their first eight plays from scrimmage. Then, Carson Palmer threw a bad pick to Asante Samuel that resulted in three points for Atlanta. From that point forward, everything changed and B.A. called the game more like Marty Schottenheimer than the gunslinger that he is.
