Energy board to hear traditional Indigenous evidence in Trans Mountain review

first_imgThirty-one Indigenous groups or individuals from Canada and the U.S. are scheduled to participate and the hearings will be held in Calgary the week of Nov. 19, in Victoria the week of Nov. 26 and in Nanaimo, B.C., the week of Dec. 3.Some First Nations that won the court battle in August, including British Columbia’s Tsleil-Waututh and Squamish Nations, say the new process is too rushed and they’re considering filing fresh court challenges after the board issues its report.The energy board responds to concerns about the timeline in documents released Wednesday, saying there’s already significant evidence on the record and legislation requires it to conduct proceedings within the time limit set by the federal government.The board includes oral traditional evidence because it “understands that Indigenous peoples have an oral tradition for sharing knowledge from generation to generation,” it says in the documents.“This information cannot always be shared adequately or appropriately in writing,” it says.The traditional evidence previously provided in the first Trans Mountain review remains on the record, it says, and board members will read transcripts prior to the new hearings. VANCOUVER, B.C. – The National Energy Board will hear oral traditional evidence from Indigenous groups in the coming weeks as part of its new review of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.The Federal Court of Appeal struck down the federal government’s approval of the project in August, citing inadequate Indigenous consultation and the energy board’s failure to review the project’s impacts on the marine environment.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government ordered the energy board to review the marine impacts and submit a report no later than Feb. 22, and on Wednesday the board unveiled its schedule for oral traditional evidence. The board adds that Indigenous interveners should file any scientific evidence or expert reports as written evidence.Those scheduled to participate include the Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh, the pro-pipeline Cheam First Nation, a coalition of U.S. tribes and B.C. Green party member of the legislature Adam Olsen, who is Indigenous.The project would increase tanker traffic seven-fold in Burrard Inlet off Metro Vancouver’s coast, raising concerns about impacts on salmon and endangered southern resident killer whales.(THE CANADIAN PRESS)last_img read more

Dhoni half a captain of Indian team Kohli visibly rough without him

first_imgNew Delhi: Former captain Bishan Singh Bedi Monday called Mahendra Singh Dhoni “half a captain” of India’s limited overs team and said his absence made skipper Virat Kohli “visibly rough” on the field during the fourth ODI against Australia. Dhoni has been rested for the last two games of the series which is tied at 2-2, going into the decider here on Wednesday. “I am nobody to comment but we all are wondering that why Dhoni is being rested and his absence was felt yesterday, behind the stumps, with the bat and on field also. He is almost half a captain,” Bedi told PTI at a reception organised by the Australian High Commission for its cricket team. “Dhoni is not getting any younger, he is no spring chicken either but the team needs him. He has a calming influence on the side. The captain needs him by his side, he is visibly rough without him. It is not a good sign,” said the 72-year-old spin great who took 266 wickets in 67 Tests. Bedi also felt the Indian ODI team is experimenting needlessly ahead of the World Cup, to be held in the United Kingdom from May 30 to July 14. “I would personally like them to live in the present. World Cup is still two and a half months away. Just play the game. For World Cup, we have been experimenting in the last one year and I am not happy with that at all,” he said, adding, that the IPL, beginning March 23, can pose serious problems for the team ahead of the mega event. “Anyone of them can get injured during the IPL. You can’t expect them to not give 100 percent while playing for their respective franchisees.” Wrist spinners are the flavour of the season with Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal leading the pack at the moment. Bedi hoped the team management has adopted the right approach by sidelining finger spinners like Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja though the latter remains part of the ODI team. “I hope they are right about wrist spinners but I cannot figure if there is a better all-rounder than Jadeja. What is the need to undermine him?” he asked. Risabh Pant, who played his fourth ODI in Mohali on Sunday and first in the ongoing series against Australia, was sloppy behind the stumps. Bedi questioned the need for resting Dhoni and giving Pant an opportunity with the series very much alive. “Pant is a wild horse. Somebody has to tame him. Who is going to do that? The support staff should be able to do that. He is making the same mistakes again and again and behind stumps, too, he has a lot of work to do, honestly. Your chairman of selection committee (MSK Prasad) is a wicketkeeper, you talk to him at least,” said Bedi. Talking about the areas of improvement in the current ODI team, he added: “Cricket sense must improve. Cricket ability and cricket sense are two different things. You have tonnes of ability but without sense there is not much you can do. Yesterday, it was such a good start from India yet they were struggling to last 50 overs while Australia finished with more than two overs to spare.”last_img read more

Millennial Money Student loan default can gut your paycheque

There’s a dirty little secret of the student debt crisis. One that affects millions of borrowers, but isn’t talked about at dinner tables, on social media or in think pieces about student loans.The taboo topic is wage garnishment and it works like this: Default on your federal student loans and the government can take up to 15 per cent of each paycheque to satisfy your debt. That amounts to $300 per month for someone who normally takes home $2,000 per month. The Education Department can also withhold federal benefits like tax returns and Social Security payments.Garnishment is an effective tool to recoup unpaid loans — private collection agencies enlisted by the Education Department took in over $841.6 million via wage garnishment in the 2018 fiscal year — but it inflicts serious financial strain on borrowers who are already struggling.“It’s a very powerful collection tactic that can really devastate the financial lives of the people subjected to it,” says Joanna Darcus, a staff attorney at the National Consumer Law Center who works with low-income student loan borrowers. “They can’t afford to pay their rent, buy their medicine, buy clothes for their kids and also pay a large percentage of their wages toward their student loan.”If you received notice of garnishment or are already in the thick of it, don’t panic; you have options that are far less painful than a 15 per cent hit to your paycheque.STOP GARNISHMENT BEFORE IT STARTSThe ideal time to take action is when you begin struggling to make payments. At that point, your loan servicer can help you explore other repayment options , including income-based plans that cap your monthly payment.Once your loans are in default — nearly nine months past due for most federal loans — those options are off the table until your loan is in good standing. You can rehabilitate your loans to move out of default (more on that below). You also have a brief window to consolidate your federal loans (combining them into a single loan with its own interest rate) before the Education Department, via a private collection agency, moves to garnish your wages.The collection agency handling your federal loans will notify you by mail before it starts garnishing your wages. The notice serves as your 30-day warning. During this time, you can stop the process by negotiating payment arrangements with the agency. The key: It must receive your first payment in that 30-day window.If you can’t make a payment within that window, request a hearing to appeal the garnishment. To prevent garnishment from starting, you must request the hearing in writing within 30 days of the date on your collection notice. You can still file an appeal after garnishment starts, but the collection agency will continue to take up to 15 per cent of your take-home pay while the case is reviewed, which can take two to three months .A hearing sounds intimidating but it’s no more than a long form detailing your income, debt and expenses. The goal is to stop or reduce garnishment.“You hear the word ‘hearing’ and think, ‘Oh my god, I need an attorney!’ But it’s just a basic exchange of information,” says Betsy Mayotte, founder of The Institute of Student Loan Advisors.Contact the collection agency handling your loan to talk about payment arrangements or get details on a hearing request. Not sure whom to call? Check the National Student Loan Data System to find out who is managing your loan and how to reach them.REHABILITATE YOUR LOANLoan rehabilitation is a one-time “Get out of default” card. Here’s how it works:The collection agency sets a monthly payment based on your income, minus any reasonable monthly expenses. The amount could be as low as $5 a month.You’ll need to provide documentation, like copies of pay stubs and bills, and complete a detailed form to help determine the amount. Any wages garnished due to defaulted student loans will be considered among your expenses.Make nine payments of the agreed-upon amount within 10 months and your loans move out of default. Any wage garnishment will stop. And you’re once again able to choose a repayment plan that works for you, including several income-based options that could drop your monthly payment to $0.Once out of default, take care to stay out. Make your payments each month. Recertify your income every year if you’re on an income-based plan. And call your loan servicer if you run into trouble. If you default a second time, you’ll have fewer options.______________________________This column was provided to The Associated Press by the personal finance website NerdWallet.

DR Congo UNbacked Governmentrebel talks enter substantive phase

7 January 2009The latest round of the United Nations-supported dialogue between the Government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and a leading rebel group entered into its substantive phase today, in a bid to quell the violence engulfing the vast nation’s east. The third session of talks kicked off between the Government and the mainly Tutsi group known as the National Congress in Defense of the People (CNDP) today in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.The escalating conflict between Government forces (FARDC) and the CNDP has uprooted an estimated 250,000 people since late August on top of the 800,000 already displaced in the region, mainly in North Kivu province, which borders Rwanda and Uganda.Olusegun Obasanjo, the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy and former Nigerian president, is facilitating the dialogue, along with Benjamin Mkapa, representing the African Union (AU) and the International Conference on the Great Lakes (ICGLR) who is also the former leader of Tanzania.In the absence of Mr. Obasanjo, Mr. Mkapa chaired today’s talks and stressed the humanitarian consequences of the clashes.It will be “critical for you during this session to reach an understanding concerning a formal and joint cessation of hostilities, or truce, in order to alleviate the human suffering that continues in the areas affected by conflict,” he said.The UN envoy is currently holding consultations, including on the possibility of holding a gathering this month of the leaders of Great Lakes nations to update them on progress made so far and obstacles that remain in achieving peace between the Government and CNDP.He is scheduled to join the dialogue later this week. read more

HRCSL records statement from scribe on Welikada riot

The HRCSL obtained written evidence from Pussewela today as well as video and photographic evidence. Pussewela had sought an investigation into the incident saying there was ample evidence to prosecute some people who were responsible for killing prisoners who took part in the riot. The Human Rights Commission in Sri Lanka (HRCSL) today recorded a statement from a journalist over the 2012 Welikada prison riot.The statement was recorded from journalist Kasun Pussewela after he had filed a petition at the HRCSL. The riot broke out during a search for illegal arms and it left 27 people dead and 40 injured.The Government had appointed a committee to investigate the riot and a report was compiled on the incident but it was not made public. (Colombo Gazette)

Join Brock team at upcoming Terry Fox Run

Master’s student Meera Mahmud is passionate about lung cancer research.Her eyes light up when she describes how her supervisor, Professor of Health Sciences Martin Tammemagi, has come up with a lung cancer risk prediction model that is highly effective in catching the disease in its early stages when combined with screening and follow-up.Mahmud’s studies involve fine-tuning the model that Tammemagi created — thanks to funding from the Terry Fox Research Institute (TFRI).“I’ve been really surprised and happy with all the work that has been done towards cancer research, especially lung cancer,” says Mahmud. “I’m grateful to be part of efforts to help Canada have a new system of identifying people who are at high risk through a public practice for lung cancer screening.”Mahmud will be among speakers at the St. Catharines Terry Fox Run on Sunday, Sept. 16 at Lakeside Park in Port Dalhousie.The Terry Fox Run takes place in cities and towns across Canada to raise money for cancer research. Fox was a young athlete whose leg was amputated because of cancer. He ran for 143 days and 5,373 kilometres to raise money for cancer research before succumbing to lung cancer in 1981.Some of that cancer research is being conducted at Brock University.Tammamagi is co-principal investigator in the TFRI-funded $1.9-million project “The Terry Fox Pan-Canadian Early Detection of Lung Cancer Study: Extension,” with $106,000 of that money going to research being conducted at Brock.Building on earlier studies, this project was announced in 2017 and will run until 2022. The idea is to detect lung cancer at an early, potentially curable stage by encouraging people at risk to go for lung cancer screening and improving lung cancer screening programs.Research published in a national study in late 2017 showed that Tammemagi’s model detected lung cancers in 6.5 per cent of the study’s participants. Of those, 75 per cent of these lung cancers were Stage 1 or Stage 2.“The prediction model is a tool that is very successful at identifying individuals at risk of developing lung cancer at an early, curable stage, so that is good news,” says Tammemagi.He and other members of this team are now studying how using exposure to air pollution and genetic variation can add to, and improve, lung cancer prediction.“Regarding interim results coming from our study in Canada and Australia, testing our lung cancer risk prediction model against the current U.S. guidelines for selecting individuals for screening, we are finding that our model is detecting more lung cancers,” says Tammemagi.In addition to conducting research, Brock University is also an enthusiastic participant in the run itself.Over the past three years, Brock students, staff and researchers have been part of the Brock team at the St. Catharines run, raising more than $2,000.Dan Dakin, Manager, Communications and Media Relations, who is Team Captain for the Brock team, encourages the University community to continue its involvement in the Terry Fox Run.“We’re proud of the TFRI-funded research taking place here at Brock and we’re thrilled to be involved in a national event that raises money for such important research,” says Dakin.Participants can register and donations can be made at the Brock University Terry Fox Run team page.“For those of us personally affected by cancer, running, walking or cycling five kilometres is only a drop in the bucket compared to Terry Fox’s run across Canada,” Dakin says.After flooding at Lakeside Park meant the St. Catharines Terry Fox Run had to be hosted at Brock in 2017, the run will return to Port Dalhousie this year. Registration starts at 9 a.m. on Sept. 16 with the run getting underway at 10 a.m.There are also Terry Fox Runs in Niagara Falls, Thorold, Welland, Niagara-on-the-Lake and Fort Erie on the same day, with representatives from Brock speaking at a number of them. read more

Florida Encourages Homeowners to Kill Green Iguanas Whenever Possible

first_img Watch: Dolphin Leaps Feet Away From Unsuspecting SurferWatch: Deep-Sea Octopus ‘Billows Like a Circus Tent’ Stay on target Invasive green iguanas have become such a problem in some parts of Florida that officials have started encouraging homeowners to kill the reptiles.The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), in a notice posted to its website, said people should exterminate the large green lizards on their properties as well as on 22 public lands areas across South Florida.“Homeowners do not need a permit to kill iguanas on their own property,” the Commission wrote on their website. “The FWC encourages homeowners to kill green iguanas on their own property whenever possible.”Green iguanas, which are not native to Florida, destroy crops and plants and also dig holes under buildings, which can create structural damage. They also spread Salmonella. (Photo Credit: Joe Raedle / Getty Images)According to the agency, green iguanas cause damage to residential and commercial landscape vegetation, and are often considered a nuisance by property owners.“Some green iguanas cause damage to infrastructure by digging burrows that erode and collapse sidewalks, foundations, seawalls, berms and canal banks,” the FWC added.The reptiles, which are not native to Florida, can also spread Salmonella.A Critter Control specialist removes a green iguana from a Florida backyard. (Photo Credit: Joe Raedle / Getty Images)Green iguanas, which can grow to at least 5 feet long and weigh nearly 20 pounds, are an invasive species and have threatened plants and animals native to the Sunshine State.Although primarily herbivores, researchers found the remains of tree snails in the stomachs of green iguanas in Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, suggesting that iguanas could present a threat to native and endangered species of tree snails.In Bahia Honda State Park, green iguanas have consumed nickerbean, which is a host plant of the endangered Miami Blue butterfly.More on, Invasive Lizard Finally Captured in FloridaTwo-Headed Lizard Surprised Keepers at Australian Reptile ParkWatch: This ‘Scuba-Diving’ Lizard Can Stay Underwater for 16 Minuteslast_img read more

Mining accident claims man with local ties

first_imgBILLINGS, Mont. — A central Montana precious metals mine was under a partial closure order Tuesday as authorities investigated the death of a worker who crashed while driving a piece of equipment 1,200 feet underground.The victim was identified by Stillwater Mining Company as Dale Alan Madson, 42, a lead equipment operator who lived in Bearcreek and had worked at the mine since 2008. Amy Louviere with the Mine Safety and Health Administration said Madson was killed Monday afternoon as he was driving a piece of mine equipment with an enclosed cab that went into a ditch. A rock bolt struck Madson in the neck, she said.It was the mine’s first worker death in more than six years. Stillwater Mining Co. spokesman John Beaudry described the accident as isolated and said further details would come out following a federal investigation.“We are all grieving. Our thoughts and prayers are with friends and co-workers,” Beaudry said.Stillwater Mining is the country’s only producer of platinum and palladium, which are used for jewelry, in catalytic converters for cars and in various industrial applications.

Crude oil prices fall below 30barrel on Iranian supply concerns

first_imgCrude oil prices traded at their lowest levels in the past 12 years amid concerns over the impending return of Iranian oil to the global market.Brent crude oil prices fell below $30 a barrel for the first time since 2004 as oversupply worries continued to roil the oil market.”Brent is currently priced lower than WTI, which has very rarely been the case in the past five years, and can be explained by the prospect of oil supply from Iran already increasing in the near future,” said Commerzbank Corporates & Markets in a note.Western sanctions on Iran over its nuclear programme are likely to be lifted this weekend, as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is expected to give full marks for the country’s progress on conditions laid down in the nuclear agreement reached in July last year.”Iran has announced on a number of occasions it wishes in this event to immediately scale up its oil exports by 500,000 barrels per day. Within six months, oil deliveries are to rise by a total of 1 million barrels per day. This could further drive prices down in the short term purely on the basis of the psychological effect,” said Commerzbank.Global brokerage Goldman Sachs had said in December last year global glut and growth concerns may pressure the crude oil market further, leading oil prices to fall to as low as $20 a barrel in the coming months.Overall, crude oil prices have seen a nearly 70% decline since June 2014, falling from highs of over $100 a barrel, as the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), which produces 31.7 million barrels a day, decided not to cut output to defend market share. The global oil supply glut was worsened by growing US stockpiles.”The Iranian return to the oil market is not really news any more. What is more, a leading representative of the state Iranian oil company NIOC recently announced that Iran wished to expand supply only slowly in order not to put further pressure on prices,” said Commerzbank.last_img read more
