Court supervised Residential school students say theyve been hurt by law firm

first_imgAPTN National NewsOntario Chief Justice Warren Winkler and eight other provincial court judges in different regions of the country supervise the settlement agreement. Justice Winkler has retained class action lawyer Randy Bennett to assist him. Since this is a court-approved and court-monitored process, the court has the authority to oversee and intervene as necessary.Crawford Class Actions, a company that specializes in administering large class action compensation processes, was retained to act as the court monitor. Michael Mooney is the lead man on the IAP file for Crawford Class Actions.A seven-member National Administration Committee (NAC) supervises the implementation of the overall settlement agreement.Supervising the work of the IAP Secretariat is a nine-member National Oversight Committee (OC).Both those committees are made up of representatives of all the parties that signed the settlement agreement: the churches that operated the schools, a national consortium of lawyers who represent the former students, the federal government and the Assembly of First Nations.The IAP Secretariat employs a chief adjudicator and five deputy chief adjudicators. They supervise 110 adjudicators as well as more than 150 support personnel. Sources say the adjudicators are paid $5,000 a day when they are conducting hearings.And there are more than 200 lawyers representing IAP clients. The lawyers also have representation on the NAC and OC.Estimates are that the number of former students who will qualify for IAP hearings will exceed 29,000, more than double the number the government originally projected.That’s 29,000 children who were subjected to having their culture, their language, their connection to their families and to their peoples’ traditions, beaten out of them. Or they were victimized by the various sexual predators who worked at the schools — or both.last_img read more

November crude by rail exports set new record despite slower growth pace

first_imgCALGARY, A.B. – The National Energy Board says crude-by-rail exports from Canada grew at a slower pace in November, but still reached a new record high.Canada exported more than 330,000 barrels per day of oil, up about one percent from October’s total of 327,000 bpd, and more than double the 148,000 bpd moved in November 2017.The slower November growth came after double-digit month-over-month growth in August, September and October. Full export pipelines were blamed for a glut of oil in Western Canada last fall that led to large discounts for bitumen-blend Western Canadian Select crude compared with New York benchmark West Texas Intermediate.Those differentials have narrowed since the government of Alberta announced last month it would impose crude oil production curtailments of 325,000 bpd starting Jan. 1.The province has also promised to buy as many as 80 locomotives and 7,000 rail tankers to help move oil to markets starting in late 2019.Oilsands giant Suncor Energy Inc. has warned that the tighter differentials have made crude-by-rail shipping “uneconomic.”Analysts estimate it costs about US$20 per barrel to ship Canadian oil by rail to markets on the U.S. Gulf Coast, so discounts that are lower than that make the option less attractive.last_img read more

5th International Conference on Jerusalem Opens in Rabat

By Dana LegerRabat – At the opening of the Fifth International Conference on Jerusalem in Rabat, Morocco’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Bourita has delivered King Mohammed VI’s statement on the challenges in Jerusalem in light of recent developments. The conference, which opened Tuesday, June 26, is jointly hosted by the UN Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People (CEIRPP) and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). Morocco upholds Palestinian rightsThe King’s letter condemned the US’ decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem on May 14 and to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel. “The American decision is a step outside the bounds of international legitimacy; it undermines the frame of reference set by the relevant resolutions, diminishes the stature of the United Nations and puts security and stability at risk in the region and beyond.”The King pledged “Morocco’s full solidarity and its strong commitment to exert all possible efforts to rally international support to uphold the legitimate right of the Palestinian people to an independent State, with East Al-Quds [Jerusalem] as its capital.”The letter said narrow-minded perceptions on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, coupled with misleading ideas and actions, have intensified an already complex issue. A need for binding international resolutionsThe King went on to tell of the peaceful demonstrations of the Great March of Return at the Gaza border in which, “Israeli occupation forces reacted to them by firing live bullets directly at the demonstrators, killing dozens and wounding hundreds of unarmed Palestinian civilians.”King Mohammed VI concluded his letter with, “I believe Al-Quds needs greater rallying of diplomatic efforts to secure binding international resolutions that protect the city and safeguard its spiritual, cultural and legal character. It also needs action on the ground to promote development in social and humanitarian fields to help Palestinians resist policies of displacement, eviction and expulsion applied against them.”The opening was attended by Mohammad Shtayyeh, Palestinian Minister of Public Works and Housing; Miroslav Jen?a, UN Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs; Fodé Seck, representative of CEIRPP; and Samir Bakr, representative of OIC.The conference will continue until June 28 and is held under the theme “The Question of Jerusalem after 50 years of Occupation and 25 years of the Oslo Accords.” In the following days, the event will include discussions from Palestinian, Israeli, and international experts on East Jerusalem. It will also provide a platform for youth from East Jerusalem to voice their concerns to the international community and for participants to identify actionable solutions to the challenges confronting the youth. read more

UN humanitarian chief arrives in DR Congo to review aid requirements

“The situation in the DRC receives far less attention than it deserves,” said Ms. Amos, the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, on arrival in Kinshasa, the capital of the central African country.“Millions of people in crisis areas have rarely known peace and security. The humanitarian situation is not only one of the world’s most serious, but also one of the most enduring,” she added.The DRC is affected by multiple humanitarian crises, each with separate causes and dynamics. They include widespread poverty, low levels of development and human rights abuses and violence against civilians.“I have come to see for myself how the situation is evolving, how we can better respond to the needs of the people, and how we can support the Government in increasing its role in the response,” said Ms. Amos.Protection of civilians and how to ensure better access to people in need are Ms. Amos’ key priorities. She will discuss these issues with the authorities, the UN peacekeeping mission (MONUSCO) and the humanitarian community.“Many Congolese get caught up in conflict and violence,” she said. “They are the innocent victims of ongoing hostilities between armed groups. We continue to call on these groups not to harm civilians, and to comply with international humanitarian law. People in the DRC want peace, security and stability. They want an end to the violence and conflict,” said Ms. Amos.An estimated 1.7 million people are internally displaced in the DRC as a result of conflict, most of them with great needs. Even in areas not affected by conflict, humanitarian indicators are alarming and call for assistance, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). Global acute malnutrition among children in many non-conflict areas is above 10 per cent, and only 47 per cent of the country’s population have access to clean water. 8 March 2011The United Nations humanitarian chief, Valerie Amos, arrived in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) today for a two-day visit during which she will travel to two of the country’s regions most affected by conflict – the provinces of North Kivu and Orientale in the north-east. read more

Mangala asserts Constitution does not give priests power to decide

“In a country with such a proud tradition of justice, where all citizens were once entitled to be considered innocent until proven guilty, people including a cabinet minister have been declared guilty without evidence, and the police have literally invited public complaints against these targeted four individuals in order to find them guilty of something – anything. Racists and xenophobes have hijacked our justice system and literally turned it upside down,” the Minister said in a statement today. Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera today said that every elected and appointed official in Sri Lanka has sworn an oath to uphold and defend a Constitution that does not give power to politicians, priests or social media platforms to decide who is guilty or innocent of any crime, including terrorism.Samaraweera said that deciding who is guilty or innocent is a sacred duty left to the judges, after a police investigation and fair trial. He said that if former Minister Rishard Bathurdeen or anyone else has committed a crime, there is a process for a criminal investigation to commence, for evidence against them to be presented before courts and for justice to take its course. “If they are guilty, they should be punished. Especially in the current context, our police and security forces have unprecedented autonomy to investigate and prosecute anyone remotely connected to these attacks,” Samaraweera said.He said that never in the history of Sri Lanka have people first been declared guilty by the press and in Parliament, only to thereafter have the police call for evidence that they may have committed a crime. “Mark my words. Had he (Bathurdeen) supported Mahinda Rajapaksa in Parliament last year, there would not have been a no-confidence motion against him. He would not be called a terrorist. There would be a new target. Even today he is being cajoled to join the other side in exchange for the removal of his “terrorist label.” This is a man who served as a Cabinet Minister under them for almost a decade, who we are supposed to believe suddenly became a terrorist overnight after he stood by the UNP and by democracy,” the Finance Minister said. read more

In Vienna Annan urges UN staff to modernize management

“We must put modern management practices in place,” he said. “We must enhance our enormous in-house talents and provide more and better opportunities for career development, while bringing in fresh, young people and skills that are the keys to the success of any enterprise.” Mr. Annan paid tribute to all UN staff working in Vienna, saying they could make an important contribution to the UN’s goals of ensuring “freedom from fear, freedom from want and protection of the resources of this planet.” The Secretary-General also stressed that the staff of the UN Office for Drug Control and Crime Prevention (ODCCP), which has its headquarters in Vienna, have a “crucial role to play” in helping to rid Afghanistan of illegal narcotics. “The need to replace opium poppy cultivation in Afghanistan with substitute crops and other economic activities is even more pressing today than ever,” Mr. Annan stressed. “The ODCCP will have a key role to play in helping Afghanistan to act on [its] intention to wipe out opium poppies forever.” Earlier, Mr. Annan had met with Amre Moussa, the Secretary-General of the League of Arab States. Speaking to reporters after their meeting, Mr. Annan said that Mr. Moussa had shared impressions from his visit to Iraq, and that they had also spoken about the troubles in the Middle East, the fight against terrorism and the situation in Afghanistan. Among other appointments today, the Secretary-General had an informal meeting with about a dozen ambassadors, to discuss government support for UN programmes on drugs, organized crime, human trafficking, money laundering, nuclear safety and industrial development. Mr. Annan also met with the Secretary-General of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), Jan Kubic. read more

The members also “commended the role played by the Afghan Interim Administration, the 1st Battalion of the Afghan National Guard, the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), the UN Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) and coalition forces to provide security to the successful convening of the Emergency Loya Jirga,” he said.The members called on the Afghan people and their leaders across the country to work together, within the framework of the Bonn Agreement that set the terms for the transition, “to build democratic institutions and to prepare in due course for national elections,” according to the statement. Members also congratulated Afghan Chairman Hamid Karzai and his ministers in the Interim Administration “for successfully bringing Afghanistan to this point in the Bonn process.”Meanwhile in Afghanistan, the selection process for the Emergency Loya Jirga concluded today. With the list of delegates still being finalized, a UN spokesman reported that the group included 20 women. “This is in addition to the 160 reserved seats for women,” Stephane Dujarric told reporters in New York. According to the procedures established by the Special Independent Commission, the Loya Jirga will include approximately 1,500 representatives, including 1,000 who are elected and 500 who are selected among particular groups.Hundreds of delegates have already begun arriving in Kabul, according to Mr. Dujarric. “In the next couple of days before the Loya Jirga convenes on Monday, the delegates will have orientation sessions and there will also be presentations on the history of the Loya Jirga and the roles and responsibilities of the delegates,” he said. read more

New EPA CarbonPollution Rules Will Spark Rate Hikes In Fairbanks

first_imgGolden Valley Electric Association customers can expect a rate hike to pay for new federally required pollution controls. The EPA’s emissions control requirements announced today, will be phased in over coming years in an effort to cut greenhouse gas emissions from power plants.Download AudioThe federal Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed rule will require all U.S. powerplants to cut production of carbon dioxide by 30 percent by 2030, based on their output in 2005.The EPA hadn’t released details of the new rule on Friday, and the agency’s spokesperson in Seattle didn’t respond to a request for comment. But GVEA’s C-E-O Cory Borgeson says all of the co-op’s coal-fired powerplants, and at least some of the other fossil-fuel fired plants, will not meet the stringent standards of the new rule.“We think it’s very possible that the limitations would affect not only our coal plants, but also our plants fired with naphtha, diesel, …” he said.About 60 percent of GVEA’s electricity is generated by coal and oil, including diesel. So, Borgeson says, the utility will be required to spend money to bring its powerplants into compliance with the new rule. And more rate hikes will be required to cover those costs. How much, he can’t yet say.But Borgeson cited as an example the $92 million that GVEA is now paying on emissions controls for the coal-fired 50-megawatt Healy 2 powerplant. That work is required under a deal the co-op cut last year with EPA and the state. Those controls, however, will not remove carbon dioxide or CO2 from the plant’s emissions. So Healy 2 will be out of compliance with the new rules when it’s fired-up in about a year. And Borgeson says it’s not known how much the additional emissions controls for the plant will cost.“So, you go in and put in additional controls to take out CO2, or limit those emissions, and – it’s just hard to speculate on the cost,” he said. “But, ultimately, it’s a big cost.”Environmentalists counter that ratepayers nationwide already are paying for the costs associated with greenhouse gas emissions. Colin O’Brien, an attorney with the environmental-advocacy groupEarthjustice, said in November interview that those so-called “hidden costs” come in the form of, for example, increased insurance and medical payments to repair damage from extreme-weather events or health costs associated with poor air quality.“People pay the cost of energy in several different ways,” O’Brien said. “One is the bill that they get from the utility. Another might be the money that they pay to their healthcare provider, if they have asthma or another lung or heart condition that’s a consequence of the air pollution that comes from coal production or coal combustion.”The new CO2 rule is intended to encourage utilities to convert from coal, which provides nearly half of the nation’s electricity, to natural gas. Borgeson says that’s not an option here.“That’s something that will still don’t have in the Interior,” he said. “And even if we do get it, it’s going to be at a much higher cost than the rest of the nation.”The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday that the proposed rule is scheduled to go into effect in 2016.Between now and then, Borgeson says GVEA will be making its case to EPA that the co-op should be granted exceptions and/or extensions for compliance.He says GVEA will support litigation that he expects the utility industry, among others, will be filing in opposition to the new rule in the coming months.last_img read more

Silk industry on a roll

first_imgJammu, Oct 20 (ANI): Today, the diverse use of silk fabric in clothing, cushions and curtains for home decoration and for wall hangings has led to a rise in its demand. India currently produces 23,000 metric tonnes of silk as against the domestic requirement of 32,000 metric tonnes. But, India is committed to increasing the domestic production of silk, particularly the bivoltine variety, and reduce silk imports from China. Already facing tough Chinese competition, the silk industry is not left behind but has survived because of domestic demand market which is estimated to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 5.2 per cent till 2015-16.last_img
