Liberals promise 638M for urban Indigenous housing

first_imgOTTAWA — The federal government is planning to spend $638 million on housing for Indigenous people in cities and urban centres.The money is part of the Liberals’ $40-billion housing plan, which is spread over 10 years and aims to reduce homelessness by half.Social Development Minister Jean-Yves Duclos and Indigenous Services Minister Seamus O’Regan are making the announcement this afternoon.About two-thirds of the money is to address Indigenous homelessness and one-third is to improve existing social housing for Indigenous families in urban centres.Duclos says this is a “priority” for the government and that affordable housing is key to building strong communities.Determining exactly how and when the money is spent will depend on partnerships and agreements with provincial governments and local housing providers.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Metis player disputes race played role in Manitoba hockey fracas

first_img(RCMP officers intervened at a hockey game in Thompson, Man., Sunday.)APTN National News THOMPSON, Man.–A player with the Thompson King Miners is disputing claims a fracas that forced the premature end to a hockey game and intervention by local Thompson, Man., RCMP on Sunday was triggered by racism.Lucas Hanlon, 17, plays right wing for the Midget AA Thompson, Man., hockey team which played back to back games against a team from Norway House, Man., this past weekend. The RCMP was called to the second game on Sunday after a melee broke out in the stands.A player for the Norway House Northstars team and two parents told APTN National News Tuesday morning that some Thompson fans hurled racial epithets at the Norway House team. They also said one player was confronted by three Thompson fans, two men and a woman, who used racial slurs. They also claimed one Norway House player had his helmet cracked by a slash to the head.Hanlon, however, is disputing those claims. He said things came to boil in the arena after some confusion surfaced following a penalty shot when parents and fans from Norway House began yelling at the referee which drew in the Thompson side who started yelling back.“They had been yelling at the refs from what I could see,” said Hanlon. “Then the Thompson parents began yelling at them for yelling at the ref.”Hanlon said things began to escalate following a couple of scrums at the Norway House net as the Thompson team began to pull ahead 3-2 in the second period. They were trailing 2-1 after the first period. Hanlon said he was cross-checked in the facemask by a Norway House player who was ejected and given a five minute major.With a Norway House player in the penalty box in place of the ejected player, the referees called a penalty shot after a Thompson player was hacked down during a rush, said Hanlon. The Thompson player scored on the penalty shot, but the Norway House side expected the player in the box to be let out.“That’s not the case because the penalty shot is a penalty in and of itself,” said Hanlon, who also referees minor hockey. “That is when things flew out of hand.”Hanlon claims that the ejected Norway House player then went into the Thompson side of the stands, a crowd gathered and a punch may have been thrown. By this time officials called the RCMP and the game ended.Hanlon said the RCMP escorted both teams separately out of the arena. The police also seized video of the game from a Shaw TV producer.“19 years of broadcasting hockey games, I have never had my footage become ‘exhibit c’ in the court of law,” tweeted producer Paul Andersen. “#norwayhousevsthompson.”Hanlon said overheated play on the ice spread to the stands causing the situation to get out of control.“It was messy. I just disagree with the comments of prejudice. I am a Metis player myself. We have a lot of Aboriginal players on our team,” said Hanlon. “We have just as many people with Aboriginal roots in our community as anywhere else.”Hanlon said he didn’t hear any racial taunts hurled at the Norway House players. He said the Norway House fans called him “white trash.” He said racial slurs are hurled by both sides during games.“You get kind of used it from playing against those teams for so long. It happens both ways. I personally don’t because I come from both backgrounds,” he said.Hanlon said he didn’t see anyone get slashed in the head with enough force to crack a helmet.Hanlon said many in the Thompson hockey community are now worried the planned Rogers Hometown Hockey tour stop scheduled for the community on March 7 and 8 may be scuttled because of the bad press stemming from the weekend’s incident.“There is a lot of talk that they may pull out now because of what was going on with comments made by APTN,” he said. “It doesn’t seem fair to lose something like that over a conflict that happened between us with another team that went both ways. Both teams were giving it to each other…I know most of our players couldn’t say anything about Aboriginals because they are Aboriginal.”APTN could not on Tuesday evening reach Norway House’s coach, the parents or the player who initially made the allegations.APTN could not reach the head coach of the Thompson King Miners Tuesday evening. The head coach was out of town during the weekend game which was handled by two assistants.NorMan hockey league officials did not return a request for comment.news@aptn.ca@APTNNewslast_img read more

Khmer Rouge victims participate in historic day at UNbacked tribunal

4 February 2008Cambodians who suffered under the rule of the Khmer Rouge participated for the first time today in the United Nations-backed tribunal trying the movement’s leaders. Their participation, through their lawyers, was described by the tribunal’s Victims Unit as “a historical day in international criminal law.” “To date, no international or hybrid tribunal mandated to investigate war crimes, crimes against humanity or genocide has involved victims as civil parties, giving them full procedural rights,” the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) Victims Unit said. Under the tribunal’s rules, victims of crimes committed under the rule of the Khmer Rouge can play an active role in the court’s proceedings as civil parties, with rights including participation in investigations, representation by a lawyer, the ability to call witnesses and question the accused, and to claim reparations for the harm they suffered. Today’s hearing on the appeal by former Khmer Rouge leader Nuon Chea (aka Brother Number Two) against his provisional detention was adjourned in response to a request by a defence lawyer. A decision on the date of its resumption will be announced on 6 February. Nuon Chea faces charges of having planned and ordered the murder, torture and enslavement of civilians in the late 1970s. Under an agreement signed by the UN and Cambodia, the ECCC was set up as an independent court using a mixture of Cambodian staff and judges and foreign personnel. It is designated to try those deemed most responsible for crimes and serious violations of Cambodian and international law between 17 April 1975 and 6 January 1979. read more

Punitive drug control measures discriminatory and have failed says UN rights expert

“Both from the perspective of public health and human rights, the cost of excessive criminalization and excessive law enforcement are far too high,” Anand Grover, the UN Special Rapporteur on the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health, told the General Assembly yesterday.“Mounting evidence suggests the failure of this approach, precisely because it disregards the realities of drug use and dependence. Human rights and the right to health approach must be brought to the centre of international drug control policy to balance the human costs of our current system and bring into focus the need to address drug-related problems in an evidence-based manner,” Mr. Grover said.The independent expert cited the UN Committee on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights, which has stated that a person’s individual use of drugs cannot constitute grounds for the denial of rights. However, he said, people who use drugs are often prevented from accessing services through the use of the threat of criminal punishment or may be denied access to health care.“In this case, criminalization results in a severe from of discrimination against people who use drugs,” Mr. Grover said when presenting his latest report to the Assembly.He also faulted the current international drug control measures, which he said unnecessarily limited access to essential medicines which are considered controlled substances, resulting in violations of the right to health.In his report, Mr. Grover suggests alternatives to narcotics control measures that focus more attention on reducing the harmful effects of drug use. “Decriminalization in certain laws governing drug control would demonstrably improve the health and welfare of people who use drugs and the general population,” he said.Speaking to reporters at UN Headquarters in New York today, Mr. Grover said one of his recommendations is “a new paradigm akin to the framework convention on tobacco control,” which included health awareness of the consequences of drug use, as opposed to the current “overtly punitive” measures which drives users of narcotics underground. 26 October 2010Punitive measures to combat the use of illicit drugs have failed to address the problem and are associated with the abuse of human rights and violations of the right to health, a United Nations independent expert has said. read more

Column Insinuating that young people arent bothered with politics is insulting and

first_img“Citizens also have to accept responsibility, you know, we’re not living in a nanny state… You can bring a horse to water but you can’t force it to drink.”Losing trust in our representativesVarious political scandals and our current economic woes have increased levels of mistrust in politicians among young people. This does not mean we are apathetic, however.If anything, the age at which people become politically engaged is decreasing. Many organisations recognise this and are trying to act accordingly. A month ago, the Constitutional Convention recommended the voting age be lowered from 18 years to 16.Ireland is not the only country debating such a move. Last month, proposed legislation that would reduce the voting age in the Scottish independence referendum to 16 years was formally lodged. Proposals to allow 16 and 17-year-olds vote in EU Parliamentary elections are also currently being considered.The National Union of Students – Union of Students in Ireland, which represents over 200,000 students in Northern Ireland, called for a reduction in the voting age across the border.“Grossly unfair” that 16-year-olds cannot voteSpeaking at the group’s annual conference in Fermanagh, NUS-USI President Adrianne Peltz said it was “grossly unfair” that 16-year-olds could pay taxes but not have a say on how this money is spent. “There is so much disenchantment and disengagement with politics and it is crucial that politics and decision-making reconnects with young people. Delivering the vote at 16 is a key way to do this,” Peltz emphasised.The National Youth Council of Ireland backs up this view. The organisation believes that lowering the voting age would promote political participation among young people and ensure youth issues are firmly placed on the country’s political agenda.Unfair judgement on today’s youthThe insinuation that young people just ‘aren’t bothered’ about politics is insulting and false. True, some young people don’t care what their public representatives are up to – that’s if they even know who they are, but the same could be said for any social grouping.Austria and certain states in Germany have reduced the voting age to 16. In these places, voter turnout among 16 and 17-year-olds is equal to older age groups.So to answer that age-old question, do young people care about politics? YES. Our generation has never been more politically aware and engaged. How we choose to involve ourselves may be changing, but we are here – trying to make a difference and have our voices heard.The horse is at the water and it’s thirsty.Órla Ryan is an MA Journalism student in NUI Galway. She is one of 25 citizen journalists covering Ireland’s presidency of the EU Council through Youth Media and the Irish Presidency. This article was first published on  the YMIP blog.Column: Why I should be allowed to vote at 17>Column: Young Irish people are losing their voice and facing forced emigration> “YOU GUYS NEVER protest, if this was France people would be out on the streets in their thousands.” Perhaps my French friend had a point – his country puts us to shame when it comes to a good old-fashioned protest. That said, it’s not as if we don’t pound the pavement when we feel the need.The recent abortion demonstrations (on both sides of the argument) and marches highlighting the third-level grant debacle are two recent examples of young people putting their money where their megaphone is. Our protests may be less frequent than our Gallic counterparts, but perhaps that’s a sign of our cultural differences as much as anything else.Young people have not taken to the streetsActivist and journalist Orla Tinsley recently wrote about the seeming absence of the protest gene in Irish young people, saying: “lack of protest does not mean lack of engagement”. Tinsley said this generation’s “sphere of political action is shifting” and now encompasses work with lobby groups, NGOs and online activism as well as more traditional forms of participation such as involvement in student unions and youth divisions of political parties.As with many issues, a generation gap is also evident. Young people can at times feel politics is a game almost solely played by older, out-of-touch people.This disconnect was accentuated by the SpunOut.ie ‘threesome scandal’. When Fine Gael TD Michelle Mulherin questioned the fact that a website partially funded by the HSE gave information to young people about threesomes, the Minister of Health James Reilly ordered a review of the site. The comments from the website were taken out of context and the ensuing negative publicity could have easily damaged what is an unparalleled resource for young people in terms of their overall health and wellbeing.Having our voices heardSome of our politicians are actively trying to bridge this type of gap. Our president Michael D Higgins attempted just that when he invited Ireland’s youth community to share their opinions as part of the ‘Being Young and Irish 2012’ project.The subsequent report was the result of four regional dialogues and incorporated the views of almost 800 contributors ranging in age from 17-26 years. Concerns regarding political reform and accountability, mental health and suicide, the economy, education and equality (particularly in terms of gay marriage and the gender pay divide) all featured.Initiatives such as this prove that young people want to have their voices heard. It’s also encouraging to see our Head of State take such a proactive role in this regard.Regional dialogues are a major element of the European Year of Citizens and Ireland’s Presidency of the Council of the EU. A recurring shortcoming at such events has been the lack of young people attending.Efforts are being made – but it’s a two-way streetWhen I questioned the Minister for European Affairs Lucinda Creighton about this at the Galway-based dialogue, she said that “every effort is bring made” to get young people interested and partaking.“I think people often feel that events like this are for politicians or professional lobbyists. It’s difficult to attract people to take the discussion from their living room or local pub to an organised structure like this, but we’re trying,” Minister Creighton stressed. She also noted that young people often don’t attend such events as they feel “less connected” to politics than others.Minister Creighton insists it can’t all be one-way traffic, though. She feels the Irish Government and EU are creating an environment for the public to share opinions with politicians and it’s up to them to capitalise on that. She said:last_img read more

Five granted bail in shooting of Duane Hutchings after seeing their DJ

first_imgFive young men involved in the killing of Duane Hutchings have been granted bail by Melbourne Magistrates Court.John Atalalis, 24, George Panagiotou, 22, and 18-year-olds John Panagiotou, Marc Amad and Ameer Jarrar facing charges of aggravated home invasion and assault were granted bail by magistrate Constantinos Kilias.Last month, bail had been refused because the weapon hadn’t been found and other people involved in the crime had not been arrested. The young men also have no prior convictions. As part of their bail conditions they are not allowed to leave the house after 9pm unless they are chaperoned by one of their parents.The granting of bail has outraged Mr Hutchings’ family that say “an innocent man has been killed”. Furthermore, he had nothing to do with the DJ equipment and was just visiting the home at the time. The victim’s family said they were angered by the scenes they saw in court as the supporters of the young men that attended the bail hearing laughed and joked among themselves.The men will return to court in April.Mr Hutchings, father of five, died from a gunshot wound to the head on 9 February after Tony Panagiotou, 56, his sons and others allegedly stormed into his Oakleigh East unit to confront him about DJ equipment that wasn’t returned after it was hired out to a woman.Brothers George and John Panagiotou, and Mr Atalalis, a friend and partner, provided the equipment from Love it Loud, a business that offered such equipment. They later reported it as stolen. They responded to the ad on Gumtree when they saw what they believed to be their equipment go up on sale.Mr Atalalis purportedly posed as a buyer and inspected the equipment. He said he would return with cash to pay for it, instead he allegedly returned with other men, armed with clubs, at 5.25 am in the morning to forcefully claim the equipment.Mr Hutchings, who was just visiting the house and was not involved with the DJ equipment,  was shot with a single-barrel sawn-off shot gun by Tony Panagiotou, say police.The others were charged with aggravated home invasion and assault.  Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Gigantic Rare Sunfish Randomly Washes Up on a Beach in Australia

first_imgStay on target Watch: Dolphin Leaps Feet Away From Unsuspecting SurferWatch: Deep-Sea Octopus ‘Billows Like a Circus Tent’ Two fisherman recently came across a mysterious sight at an Australian beach: An enormous, rare sunfish that can weigh more than an automobile.The dead sunfish was spotted at Coorong National Park, a protected nature area in South Australia, over the weekend, Fox News reported. Linette Grzelak posted photos of the “unusual catch” on Facebook and told The Guardian Australia that her partner thought the creature, “was a piece of shipwreck at first.”center_img This big sunfish isn’t a typical resident of the South Australian waters though: Ralph Foster, South Australia Museum’s fish collection manager, told the Australian Broadcasting Company that this animal is a very rare find.“I’ve actually had a good look at it, we get three species here and this is actually the rarest one in South Australian waters,” Foster said. “It’s the oceanic sunfish, which in other parts of the world is common, but here it’s more unusual, it’s the one known as Mola mola.”What’s interesting about the Mola is that they can grow very large in size and they’re typically not fished for because they can cause bad damage to yachts and other boats. According to National Geographic, the ocean sunfish, also known as the Mola, can be 11-feet-long and weigh up to 2.5 tons, making them one of the largest types of fish in the world.More on Geek.com:Rare Giant Sunfish Mysteriously Washes Up on California Beach ‘Mysterious’ Sea Creature Found Buried at Washington Beach RescuedChina Clones the ‘Sherlock Holmes of Police Dogs’last_img read more

Frustrated Trump signs order to end subsidy payments to Obamacare

first_imgPresident Donald Trump on Thursday signed an order to make it easier for Americans to buy bare-bones health insurance plans, using his presidential powers to undermine Obamacare after fellow Republicans in Congress failed to repeal the 2010 law.Trump issued the executive order aimed at letting small businesses band together across state lines to buy cheaper, less regulated health plans for their employees with fewer benefits. Such new insurance options, however, may not be available until 2019, and the order could face legal challenges from Democratic state attorneys general.It was Trump’s most concrete step to undo Obamacare since he took office in January promising to dismantle Democratic former President Barack Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement.Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer accused Trump of “using a wrecking ball to single-handedly rip apart our healthcare system.”Later on Thursday, Politico reported that Trump plans to cut off subsidy payments to insurers selling Obamacare coverage, citing two people familiar with the matter.Trump has repeatedly threatened to stop the payments, which are made directly to insurance companies to help cover out-of-pocket medical expenses for low-income Americans enrolled in individual healthcare plans under Obamacare.The payments are estimated at $7 billion in 2017.If Trump does eliminate the subsidy payments, premiums for many customers on the Obamacare individual insurance markets would be 20 percent higher in 2018, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has said.The White House did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.Republicans call Obamacare, which extended health insurance to 20 million people, a government intrusion into Americans’ healthcare, and have been promising for seven years to scrap it.Trump’s order aims to give people more access to cheaper plans, which do not cover essential health benefits such as maternity and newborn care, prescription drugs, and mental health and addiction treatment.Obamacare, known formally as the Affordable Care Act, requires most small business and individual health plans to cover those benefits.“DESTROYING EVERYTHING”“The cost of the Obamacare has been so outrageous, it is absolutely destroying everything in its wake,” Trump said at a White House signing ceremony.Trump’s order was aimed at making it easier for small businesses to join together as associations across state lines.Unlike large employers that can create their own health plans because their work forces are big enough to spread risk – mitigating the effect of individuals with serious illnesses – small employers have few options to offer reasonably priced health coverage.Allowing small employers to band together in associations is meant to give them options similar to larger companies. The White House also said the associations would give employers more leverage to negotiate with insurance companies in purchasing health insurance plans for employees.Some of the business groups that the order is aimed at, including franchise organizations and retailers – which generally have a large number of hourly employees – said they are interested and want to be part of the rule-making process at the Department of Labor, but cautioned that there are many details to tackle.“It’s not something we’ll be able to open a suitcase tomorrow and be in business with. There are a lot of issues to be worked out and to consider,” said Neil Trautwein, vice president of health care policy at the National Retail Federation.A spokesman for the National Federation of Independent Business, the largest small-business association in the country, said it would be watching to see “how the regulatory architecture develops” and make a determination in the future.Small businesses have been among the biggest critics of Obamacare.The order also sought to change an Obama-era limit on the time span that people can use short-term health insurance plans, which are cheaper but cover few medical benefits. Those plans are currently limited to three months.Joseph Antos, a healthcare expert at the conservative American Enterprise Institute think tank, said he did not believe the order would have much of an impact because employers from regions with lower healthcare costs, like Iowa, would not want to join up with those from regions with higher costs.Experts also questioned whether Trump has the legal authority to expand association health plans.Democratic state attorneys general have said they will sue if Trump tries to destroy Obamacare. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said Trump’s executive order is just another step toward imploding the Affordable Care Act.“It should come as no surprise that California is prepared to fight in court to protect affordable healthcare for its people,” Becerra said.The association health plans could attract young, healthy people and leave a sicker, more expensive patient pool in the individual insurance markets created under Obamacare, driving up premiums.The American Hospital Association said Trump’s order “could destabilize the individual and small group markets, leaving millions of Americans who need comprehensive coverage to manage chronic and other pre-existing conditions, as well as protection against unforeseen illness and injury, without affordable options.”Small health insurers and state insurance regulators also criticized Trump’s move.Hospital stocks edged lower in Thursday trading, with HCA Healthcare Inc down 1.7 percent and Tenet Healthcare Corp down 4.4 percent. Medicaid insurers also fell with Centene Corp off 2.5 percent.Trump has taken a number of other steps to weaken or undermine Obamacare. He has not committed to making billions of dollars of payments to insurers guaranteed under Obamacare, prompting many to exit the individual market or hike premiums for 2018.The administration also halved the open enrollment period, which begins Nov. 1, slashed the Obamacare advertising and outreach budget, and allowed broad religious and moral exemptions to the law’s mandate that employers provide coverage for women’s birth control.last_img read more
