Bodies of father teenage daughter recovered after ATV accident in BC

first_imgCAMPBELL RIVER, B.C. – A search for a man and his teenage daughter who were swept away while crossing a Vancouver Island creek on an all-terrain vehicle has come to an end after both bodies were found.Paul Berry with Comox Valley Ground Search and Rescue says the girl’s teenage friend was also riding on the vehicle when it fell into Woods Creek near Campbell River, B.C. on Sunday.He says neighbours heard screams and pulled the friend safely out of the water while a search was launched for the missing father and daughter.He says the girl’s body was found on Sunday night, and after crews resumed the search on Monday morning, they located the father’s body as well.Berry says the trio had frequently crossed Woods Creek at that spot, which is normally benign, but the creek was raging because of rain and snow from the previous night.He is urging anyone who ventures into the backcountry to be aware of the changing conditions that may turn a familiar area into a dangerous one.last_img read more

Liberals poised to tighten controls on sale licensing of firearms

first_imgOTTAWA – The Liberal government is planning to introduce long-promised legislation Tuesday to strengthen controls on the sale, licensing and tracing of guns.The Liberals are bracing for political pushback from the Conservatives, as the bill would repeal some measures passed by the previous government.The bill is expected to fulfil Liberal election platform promises to enhance background checks for anyone buying a handgun or other restricted firearm, as well as require purchasers to present a valid licence.The Liberals also pledged to require vendors to keep records of all firearms inventory and sales to assist police in investigating gun trafficking and other firearms-related crimes.Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale has already earmarked more than $327 million over five years, and $100 million a year thereafter, to address criminal gun and gang activities.The government has stressed that it has no interest in reviving a national long-gun registry — a Chretien-era project that became mired in cost overruns and prompted vociferous criticism from firearms groups.The Liberals are also conscious that any measures unduly restricting the freedoms of gun owners or imposing new administrative burdens could generate a significant backlash, particularly in rural ridings where firearms are part of everyday life.Goodale recently told a news conference during a national symposium on gangs and guns that the goal of the legislation will be to prioritize public safety while ensuring “we are being practical and fair with respect to legitimate firearms owners.”“The whole message around the platform is about illegal handguns and assault weapons,” he said. “So it’s very much focused on the illegal use of weapons and illegal weapons themselves.”If the Conservatives pounce on the legislative package, the Liberals are expected to highlight Tory Leader Andrew Scheer’s promises when running for party leader, suggesting they are out of step with public opinion. Scheer advocated repealing all federal regulations pertaining to firearms ownership, usage and transportation that do not:— ensure Canada’s gun laws respect the rights of honest firearms owners;— recognize the fact that hunting and sports shooting are an important part of Canadian culture history;— and empower police to concentrate on real criminals who pose a public threat.Conservative MP Glen Motz has urged the government to find a way of cracking down on the sale of illegal guns from abroad through the darkest channels of the internet.The number of firearm-related homicides in Canada hit 223 in 2016 — up 44 from 2015, and the third consecutive annual increase. There were 141 gang-related homicides in 2016, 45 more than the previous year. In addition, break-and-enters to steal guns have been rising.There are three classes of firearms: non-restricted (such as hunting rifles and shotguns), restricted (handguns and some semi-automatics) and prohibited (prescribed handguns and fully automatics).Guns are classified through definitions in the Criminal Code or by means of classification regulations.Justice Department briefing materials prepared for a federal advisory committee on firearms note that the regulations have not been substantially updated in more than two decades. “There are many loopholes and inconsistencies within the current firearms classification regime.”Any legislative measures to strengthen background checks for people buying handguns or other restricted firearms would be aimed at ensuring the system “works to protect public safety,” said Goodale, adding “that’s an area where there is broad, broad consensus.”Internal briefing notes indicate the government has also pondered possible measures to more quickly identify people considered unfit to have guns for reasons such as mental instability or violent behaviour.Under the current firearms licence application and renewal process, personal information helps determine whether someone is eligible for a licence. In addition, “continuous eligibility screening” means criminal behaviour can be flagged for the federal chief firearms officer for review and possible investigation.— Follow @JimBronskill on Twitterlast_img read more

Katimavik alumni shares memories of influential program

first_imgAPTN National NewsStarting in 1977, Canadian kids just out of high school gained valuable experience working as volunteers across Canada in the Katimavik program. Through Katimavik — named after the Inuit word for “meeting place” — youth worked in many Aboriginal communities throughout the country, among other places, providing much-needed help and support.However, with the announcement of the 2012 federal budget, the governing Conservatives stated that the Katimavik program would be ending.APTN National News reporter Ossie Michelin sits down with a Katimavik alumni to talk about what the program meant to him, and to the communities he helped.last_img

Canada Nova Scotia commit 29 million for longterm care facility high speed

first_imgAngel MooreAPTN NewsEskasoni First Nation in Nova Scotia will soon have a new long-term care facility and high-speed internet.The new infrastructure investments were announced by federal, provincial and First Nation leaders in the Mi’kmaq community Tuesday.Once built, the new care facility will house up to 48 elderly and disabled residents.It will be called Kiknu, the Mi’kmaw word for ‘our house’.Ottawa is contributing $19.7 million for the home, with Nova Scotia chipping in $6.6 million.Eskasoni Chief Leroy Denny joined Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil and federal Minister of Rural Economic Development Bernadette Jordan for Tuesday’s announcement.He said the facility will embrace Mi’kmaq language and culture, from design to the delivery of services.“The new elder care facility will allow the Mi’kmaq to carry on the tradition of caring for our own within our community,” Denny said, adding the Kiknu “will be a place where our elders will feel at home and continue to have community and cultural connections.”McNeil said his government wants to ensure culture is an integral part of delivering services.“This is an important part of how we build community,” he said. “One of the things though that we’ve learned early on, working with chiefs and community members, is the importance of culture.”Currently, elders such as Lottie Johnson have to leave the community for long-term care.“It’s like you’re almost gone and forgotten,” she said Tuesday. “But here it’s on the reserve and people—your family, relatives—would be able to drop in to see you. So I think that’s really a good thing.”Kiknu is expected to create around 70 jobs, with a goal of employing people within the community so they will stay in Eskasoni and embrace Mi’kmaq language and culture by caring for elders.“They still get to learn from the elders,” said Johnson, adding Eskasoni is “really rich in the culture and the language, and we’ve maintained that.”The facility will be built on part of the 200 acres of land recently acquired by Eskasoni First Nation through the federal Addition to Reserves process.Denny said one day the new land could also house a high school that the community hopes to build.McNeil said this announcement is a step towards reconciliation.“We took them in care, we ripped them right out of their communities, out of their culture,” he said. “And I wanted to make sure that we corrected that.”He said ensuring the importance of culture is important in terms of governments delivering services.“It’s an opportunity for elders to grow old and have their foundation in community at the same time want to make sure the young people see this as an opportunity for jobs an opportunity for them to build a life for themselves in community,” said McNeil.The feds and province concurrently announced funding for fibre-optic services in the community, which will better connect Eskasoni residents online.Ottawa will contribute more than $2.5 million to the development, with Nova Scotia contributing just over $800,000.amoore@aptn.calast_img read more

Moroccan Educational System Problems and Solutions

By Jawad GarmahRabat – Education is always considered as the backbone of any society. It contributes significantly in the development of any country at all levels including business, health, law, agriculture, and services, etc. Most of the developed countries put education in the priority when it comes to rank the sectors that help efficiently the progression of the country. In Morocco, however, education is the sector that is not in the primacy of the government and doesn’t give it great importance either in terms of human resources or financial aids. Consequently, since the independence, the Moroccan educational system has been flopped in many setbacks, and despite of the reform stages that have been witnessed, none of them has succeeded to redress the crux of the problem. This failure of the Moroccan educational system has been shared by many important elements.  These may include the government, parents, teachers, and students. In any developed country, the success of the educational system comes primarily from the support of the government that provides all the necessities to lead its educational system onward. However, in Morocco, the government does not supply the educational system with the adequate props; this lack of support is reflected in the profitability of both students and teachers. On the one hand, in most of the Moroccan schools, the profitability of students is reduced due to the lack of teachers, resulting in the overcrowding of students in the classrooms, and thus the teaching-learning process is hindered. This grave problem restrains the teacher from communicating with the students to know their weaknesses and strengths in order to structure the lesson and to know the materials that should be used to make the objectives met.Additionally, the overcrowded classroom handicaps the ability of students to communicate with each other and to make working groups, such as preparing presentations, working on projects, and writing papers. This process helps them develop many skills and competencies. On the other hand, the low wages of teachers in comparison with other professions make them in continuous search for other sources to gain more money, like working in the private schools, the thing that decreases their performance in the public schools.Moreover, The government doesn’t equip schools with the technological devices, such as, laptops, tablets, data-show, and the printing machines. These technological instruments may yield tangible benefits, in terms of making students engaged and eager to learn with modern devices that they are proficient in their use. Integrating ICT in the classrooms enables the teacher to achieve the lesson’s objectives. By a way of an example, for a teacher of English language to teach listening and speaking, which are the two essential elements of learning English, he-she needs to use the laptop or the smart phone to show to students some English movies, music or conversations to help them  improve their listening and speaking skills.Needless to say, the teacher is the very fundamental element in the educational process. If the teacher is effective, then learning process is going to be fruitful, or, otherwise, the whole educational system is going to be collapsed .Very often, most of the Moroccan teachers deny the fact that they are the very significant element to make the Moroccan educational system transcend and override most of the problems mentioned. However, these teachers neglect their role as being leaders, supporters, mentors, facilitators, and providers. They do not open discussions with students, or give them the chance to express their opinions freely to know what they like and what they dislike.The only thing they do is to dominate the session, fill in their minds with information, use inappropriate pedagogical methods, and force them to work with undesirable materials. Additionally, most of these teachers work in the private schools, or in the language centers. They pour out their complete efforts in the private sector, because they are well-controlled, but when it comes to the public school, they perform and treat students very badly, since they know that their monthly salary is guaranteed. Besides, some teachers are not well-qualified in terms of the educational sciences, educational psychology, and educational sociology; as a result, they mistakenly mistreat students, and do not know how to cope with problems such as the overcrowded classrooms, troublemakers, lazy students, and those who do not pay attention during the lesson, etc.The responsibility of parents or the family institution in the failure of the educational system is very influential. Many experts regard the preschool period as the steppingstone of a child to pave their ways to become good persons. Psychologically speaking, children’s personality and character are shaped by the parental upbringing and the social environment. In this sense, in the family institution, parents pass to their children their attitudes, values, and morals which represent the basic elements of the child’s personality, so the child becomes heavily influenced by their parents. This means that, when the child goes to school he-she reflects the behaviors and the upbringing that they have learned at home.However, many students go to school only for the sake of creating troubles, showing their muscles in front of their friends, mocking and making jokes about teachers, the thing that cause conflicts between these students and teachers, and, consequently, they hinder the learning process. Additionally, the main concern of the majority of students is to get good marks and to succeed at the end of the year, instead of concentrating on getting knowledge or learning new strategies, skills, and techniques that can ameliorate their competencies; they only focus on how to get good marks, either by learning by heart what they have got from the class, or by creating new tricks to outsmart the teacher and cheat in the exam.At last and not least, as Alice Hoffman states, “every problem has a solution’’. Indeed, for the Moroccan educational system to be successful, there are thousands of solutions, but it only needs the policy makers to take the initiative and take these solutions into consideration to reform the educational system. First, talking about the government, what it needs to do is to provide sufficient schools that can encompass a large number of students, and to provide enough teachers, as well as, to equip the schools with technological devices. Moreover, the government should well-train teachers in terms of the educational sciences, psychological and sociological sciences to improve learning outcomes and to adjust students’ behaviors.Furthermore, we must not put the blame only on the government, teachers also must be blamed, because as I have already mentioned they are very fundamental in the whole educational system, so the teachers should bare in mind that, they are carrying on their shoulders the responsibility of the reform. They need first to work sincerely and to consider students as their children, and then, to try their best to understand students’ desires and wants, open discussions with them and teach them how to express themselves freely and how to respect others’ opinions.In addition, parents also should contribute to this reform; they must teach their children how to respect the teacher and their classmates, and to pay special attention when the teacher is explaining the lesson. They should also teach their children how to be good citizens before being good students. Parents also should train their children how to get the habit of reading, how to love knowledge, learning, and discovering, and how to depend on themselves in the exams to avoid cheating. As far as I am concerned, if all these elements work hand in hand to put an end to these handicaps, our educational system would be developed and lead our country forward. © Morocco World News.

Bait crisis could take the steam out of lobster this summer

PORTLAND, Maine — Members of the lobster business fear a looming bait crisis could disrupt the industry during a time when lobsters are as plentiful and valuable as ever.America’s lobster catch has climbed this decade, especially in Maine, which is the centre of the lobster industry. But the fishery relies on herring, a small, schooling fish that other fishermen seek in the Atlantic Ocean.Federal regulators are imposing a steep cut in the herring fishery this year. East Coast herring fishermen brought more than 200 million pounds of herring to docks as recently as 2014, but this year’s catch will be limited to less than a fifth of that total.Scientists say not enough young herring are surviving in the ocean. The cut leaves lobstermen scrambling for new bait sources.Patrick Whittle, The Associated Press read more

Ban laments slowdown on key elements of Nepals peace process

20 July 2009Progress on key elements in Nepal’s peace process have slowed down or stalled altogether owing to the country’s recent political crisis, says Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who proposes a six-month extension of the United Nations mission to continue assisting with remaining tasks. “The two major tasks at the current stage of the peace process are the integration and rehabilitation of the Maoist army personnel and the drafting of the new constitution,” Mr. Ban writes in his latest report on the request of Nepal for UN assistance in support of the peace process.He notes that efforts to advance on both these fronts slowed with the onset of the crisis sparked by the resignation of Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal (“Prachanda”) in early May, which occurred one day after the Chief of Army Staff – who he had fired – was reinstated. A senior leader of the Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist-Leninist (UML), Madhav Kumar Nepal, was elected Prime Minister on 23 May and subsequently formed a new coalition Government with the support of 21 other political parties but without the participation of the Maoists. “The modest progress witnessed in some aspects of the peace process during the first quarter of 2009 has stalled against a backdrop of mistrust and a further deterioration of relations among key stakeholders, notably between UCPN-M [Unified Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist] and the other major parties and between UCPN-M and the Nepal Army,” says the Secretary-General.In particular, he notes that while there were promising signs of progress with regard to resolving the future of the Maoist army personnel, efforts have remained at a “standstill” since late April. “A planning process should be initiated to address in parallel the commitment contained in the Comprehensive Peace Agreement and the Interim Constitution to democratize and determine the appropriate size of the Nepal Army, while ensuring that the institution reflects the diversity of Nepal and is imbued with the values of democracy and human rights,” he writes. Meanwhile, the task of drafting the constitution has continued to move forward, albeit with numerous hurdles. “There is near unanimity that it will be very difficult, if not impossible, to meet the prescribed time frame of May 2010 for the promulgation of a new constitution,” Mr. Ban states, strongly encouraging progress in this area, based on consensus among the main political actors and the wider public. He adds that political leaders in Nepal have expressed the view that the presence of the UN Mission in Nepal (UNMIN) is needed until the integration and rehabilitation of the Maoist army personnel is resolved. Therefore, he recommends that the Mission’s mandate be extended for a further six months, until 23 January 2010.Established following the signing of the 2006 peace deal by the Government and the Maoists to end the country’s decade-long civil war, UNMIN has been assisting with key tasks, such as monitoring of the management of arms and armed personnel of the Maoists and the Nepal Army.The Secretary-General also calls on the Government to urgently address the prevailing “climate of impunity,” and says the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal can continue to play an essential and helpful role, including by promoting and protecting human rights and by building the capacity of independent national institutions. read more

Annan thanks LA City Council for supporting Millennium Development Goals

United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan today applauded the Los Angeles City Council’s approval of a resolution to support the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), an agenda negotiated at a world summit at the UN in 2000 that includes stopping the spread of HIV/AIDS and halving extreme poverty by 2015.“I am heartened that you have adopted this resolution in support of the Millennium Development Goals,” he told council members the day after the resolution’s passage.The resolution, which will include the support of MDGs in the council’s 2003-04 legislative programme, “reflects an understanding that the work for a healthier, more equitable world begins with every one of us – in developed and developing countries alike,” he added.Mr. Annan is on a two-day trip to Los Angeles. Besides addressing the City Council, he is marking the 50th anniversaries of the Los Angeles World Affairs Council and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Goodwill Ambassador programme.The MDGs are different from “other bold pledges that became broken promises over the past 50 years” because they are people-centred, time-bound and measurable, they have unprecedented political support and they are achievable, he said.Among the factors vital to their fulfilment is a true partnership engaging developed and developing countries alike. “Indeed, forging a global partnership for development forms one of the Goals in itself, Goal number 8,” he said.Mr. Annan noted that city councillors around the world represented more than half of the world’s human population: the 3 billion people living in cities. “Cities like yours can be vehicles for peace in the broadest sense of the word,” he said. read more

Afghans close to completing UN shelter scheme for returning refugees

A spokesman for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Kris Janowski, said today that 34,000 homes have already been built, providing shelter to more than 170,000 people who returned to Afghanistan this year after years of war and Taliban rule.At a press briefing in Geneva, Mr. Janowski said another 16,000 houses are currently under construction and should be ready for habitation by the end of the year. Another 2,000 homes are expected to be built early next year.In October, the UNHCR stepped up the pace of the scheme to try to make sure that as many homes as possible were built ahead of Afghanistan’s normally bitter winter.Mr. Janowski said that, under the scheme, the UNHCR provides tool kits, walls, roofing timbers, doors and window frames to approved refugees, as well as a stipend to help pay for construction.The UNHCR has estimated that more than 610,000 Afghan refugees have returned this year, with almost all arriving from either Pakistan or Iran. read more

Argentina adopts Canadas Towards Sustainable Mining Initiative

first_imgCámara Argentina de Empresarios Mineros (CAEM), the national mining association in Argentina, it will adopt the Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) initiative, a corporate social responsibility program developed by the Mining Association of Canada (MAC) to improve environmental and social practices in the mining industry.This is the second time that TSM has been adopted by a mining association outside of Canada, and the first Latin American jurisdiction to do so. FinnMin, the Finnish Mining Association, adopted TSM in November 2015. MAC freely shares TSM with other countries seeking tools to improve the environmental and social performance of their mining industries, including engagement with civil society and enhanced transparency and accountability.According to Marcelo Alvarez, CAEM’s President, TSM will help move Argentina’s mining sector forward to become more efficient, reliable and an important and attractive jurisdiction for investment and growth. “By adopting TSM, we are committing to raise the standards of our industry. TSM will help us become more transparent and earn the confidence of Argentinian society. It is a first step towards building a solid, responsible mining sector capable of achieving its full potential.”“We are honoured that Argentina has chosen TSM as the vehicle to drive environmental and social performance in its mining sector, and are proud of TSM’s increasingly global reach. Exporting Canada’s expertise in sustainable and responsible mining practices is one important way that we can contribute to improving mining performance around the world,” said Pierre Gratton, President and CEO, MAC.MAC and its members launched TSM in 2004. Implementation of the program is mandatory for all MAC members’ Canadian operations, but many voluntarily apply it to their international sites.TSM requires mining companies to annually assess their facilities’ performance across six important areas, including tailings management, Aboriginal and community outreach, safety and health, biodiversity conservation, crisis management, and energy use and greenhouse gas emissions management. The results are freely available to the public and are externally-verified every three years to ensure what has been reported is accurate. While CAEM will tailor its performance areas so that they reflect the unique aspects of its domestic mining sector, they will closely resemble those of Canada’s.To ensure TSM reflects the expectations of civil society and industry stakeholders, it was designed and continues to be shaped by an independent, multi-interest advisory panel. As part of its implementation, CAEM will implement a similar advisory body to provide this valuable oversight function.Cámara Argentina de Empresarios Mineros (CAEM), or The Argentinean Chamber of Mining Entrepreneurs, is the federal voice of the mining industry in the country. It was created with the goal of strengthening and unifying the potential of the industry. Its mission is to develop and establish in Argentina a mining industry widely recognized for its responsibility and reliability, as well as providing an essential and productive contribution to the sustainable development of communities, and its strict compliance with the law. To achieve this, CAEM seeks to adequately represent the interests and growth of individuals, companies and organizations, directly or indirectly related to the mining activity. Mining Association of Canada is the national organization for the Canadian mining industry. Its members account for most of Canada’s production of base and precious metals, uranium, diamonds, metallurgical coal and mined oil sands, and are actively engaged in mineral exploration, mining, smelting, refining and semi-fabrication. read more
