ERC finalising code of conduct for politicians

first_imgIn a bid to ensure politicians are held accountable for their actions, the Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC) is compiling a code of conduct for political parties and politicians ahead of the upcoming elections.The Commission has already met with the Opposition People’s Progressive Party on the development of this code of conduct.In essence, the document will address the conduct of politicians in all public forums, including political rallies, according to Commissioner Neaz Subhan, who said the code will be “comprehensive”.Upon completion, the ERC will lobby political parties and politicians to sign onto it.The ERC is currently empowered to recommend the banning of political parties from participating in elections if it is found guilty of breaching laws dealing with ethnicity.Ethic Relations Commission building, Queenstown, GeorgetownBut over the years, no action was ever taken against groups or individuals for breaching such laws.ERC Chairman, Reverend John Smith however said that is going to change.After several years of being defunct, a new ERC was established in 2018.The body’s mandate is to provide equality of opportunity between persons of different ethnic groups and to promote harmony and good relations between such persons and provide the elimination of all forms of discrimination on the basis of ethnicity.It is also required to discourage and prohibit persons, institutions, political parties and associates from indulging in, advocating or promoting discriminatory practices on the ground of ethnicity.last_img read more

Wakeup call for communities – Ann Greene

first_imgBerbice rape-murderAs Guyana observes Child Protection Week 2017, the country remains in outrage over the recent case where a teenager was lured away, sexually assaulted and murdered in Sisters Village, East Bank Berbice.CCPA Director Ann GreeneIn light of this, Child Care and Protection Agency (CCPA) Director Ann Greene has spoken out against gruesome attacks on minors, noting that it was a wakeup call for communities. This is as the Agency is of the belief that persistent intervention by residents in the area could have prevented the fatal outcome.Reports revealed that 13-year-old Leonard Archibald, of Brothers Village, was allegedly sodomised and dumped into the Berbice River while still alive, by two allegedly known child predators residing within the area.Reports are residents in proximity to the location of the attack recalled hearing screams, but failed to report the incident.In an interview with Guyana Times on Tuesday, Greene indicated that the CCPA has commenced consultations relating to the matter and in doing so, the Agency has met with the family of the now dead teen.Given the reluctance to alert the authorities despite being alarmed by the screams, the Director posited that the tragedy could have been averted.On that note, she lamented, “We could’ve gotten a better outcome for this child had the community been more involved and understand their roles and responsibilities. If you know of a predator in your community, that person must be identified, monitored and pushed to the criminal justice system.”Responding to comments that reports were made, all of which were to no avail, Greene argued, “Even if you say you reported to the Police, you best keep reporting this thing until action is taken. Here is where people can come out and stand up at the Police Station demanding action.”Adding to her calls for intervention at the community level, the CCPA Director is also urging families to be more vigilant as it regards the welfare of their children. In fact, she noted that they must not only go into protective mode for the females, but attention must be paid to the males as well.With the Berbice incident in mind, Greene reiterated that it was a wakeup call for communities and thereby emphasised the need for families, and by extension members of communities to be more invested in the protection and well-being of children, and to even be persistent when necessary.As such, she underlined, “We got other children out there and we got to use “out of evil might cometh good”. It is a wakeup call for other communities. You know something, you best say something. You best keep reporting until action is taken. You have a responsibility to keep the children in your community safe.”Meanwhile, the warning by the CCPA Director coincides with this year’s theme for Child Protection Week, “Partnering with families and communities for positive outcomes for children.”last_img read more

Gasoline companies to speak at public inquiry into B.C. pump prices Wednesday

first_img“The advance ruling on confidentiality does go a long way to satisfy Husky’s concerns,” Mel Duvall said in an email Thursday.“That said, we are still considering whether there are other measures that can be implemented by the BCUC that would provide further protection for the interveners.”Shell said it would provide the data ordered but requested the inquiry use the same confidentiality process that the National Energy Board used in proceedings dealing with pipeline access, including storing confidential material in a red folder.Suncor said it was preparing to submit the figures by Monday, while Imperial Oil said it still wasn’t comfortable doing so. Costco submitted two copies of a questionnaire Friday, one for the public and one with three additional answers it deemed confidential.Questions shared in advance by the utilities commission reveal some of the information the public may learn.Advertisement Calgary-based Parkland Fuel, which had raised concerns about confidentiality, also complained of tight deadlines in a letter from its lawyers to the commission on Tuesday.“The inquiry has the potential to profoundly impact Parkland’s business,” it said, adding that it is a voluntary participant and short notice on what the hearings would look like impedes their “full and fair participation.”“The only way to mitigate that harm is to delay the workshop.”The utilities commission released a schedule and description of the so-called oral workshops, along with questions that will be asked, over the next two days. But it said it’s committed to staying on schedule and Parkland said Friday it would still participate.Other companies said they were reassured by the new confidentiality terms, including a spokesman for Husky, but didn’t commit to release the data.Advertisement VANCOUVER — An industry expert says a public inquiry into British Columbia’s record-breaking gasoline prices may increase the public’s understanding of a murky market but the provincial government’s options for response are limited.Michael Ervin, senior vice-president with consulting firm Kent Group that specializes in the downstream petroleum industry, said he also doesn’t expect the inquiry to uncover any bombshell revelations.The reason prices at the pump are so much higher in Vancouver and other B.C. cities than comparable jurisdictions all funnels down to supply and demand, he said.- Advertisement -“It really comes down to very tight supply relative to pretty strong demand in the Lower Mainland and B.C. in general,” Ervin said in a phone interview.Premier John Horgan ordered the inquiry in May when prices at the pump reached $1.70 a litre, saying gas and diesel price increases were “alarming, increasingly out of line with the rest of Canada, and people in B.C. deserve answers.”He tasked the British Columbia Utilities Commission with overseeing the inquiry. A three-member panel chaired by CEO David Morton is set to begin its oral proceedings on Wednesday in Vancouver.Advertisement But the inquiry has already encountered some hurdles.The utilities commission beefed up its confidentiality terms last week after six of seven fuel companies refused to share their retail margins, saying it would compromise their positions in a competitive market.The new terms grant advanced approval of confidential status to those who submit information that they identify as commercially or competitively sensitive under the new terms, rather than granting the status after the content is reviewed and deemed eligible.“We felt that under the circumstances it would not be unreasonable to provide them with that assurance,” Morton said in an interview.Advertisement They cover capacity and costs of using the Trans Mountain pipeline, whether refineries co-ordinate with one another to plan for maintenance repairs and shutdowns, and whether companies divert refined product from B.C. when gas prices are low.“We’ll be making findings on what we’ve found, whether it’s competitive or not, how the prices are set, why the prices are different here and why they fluctuate more than they do in other parts of Canada,” Morton said.The province has also asked the utilities commission to explore mechanisms the province could use to moderate price fluctuations and increases.Recommendations on the Trans Mountain pipeline are unlikely, Morton said, adding that he didn’t want to preclude anything prematurely.Ervin said there are a few options facing the province:— It can create a watchdog agency to monitor the elements going into the pump price and where they seem to change, in order to better understand and explain to the public what happens and why.— It can reduce taxes, which are among the highest in Canada, especially in the Metro Vancouver area where the carbon tax represents 9 cents per litre and the transit authority adds another 18.5 cents per litre.— Or it could pursue regulation of crude going into refineries, wholesale gasoline prices, or prices at the pump. Each of those regulations is “problematic,” he said.Crude and wholesale gasoline are globally traded commodities, he said. That means for example, that if wholesale gasoline prices are capped low, American wholesale buyers may buy them up leaving B.C. dry, he said.The Atlantic provinces regulate prices at the pump but that may have a counterproductive effect in B.C. Retail margins aren’t large and have actually declined over the last 20 to 30 years when inflation is taken into account, Ervin said.“It would most certainly have the consequence of putting gas stations out of business,” he said.Amy Smart, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Super Termon stun Gaoth Dobhair in Donegal SFC

first_imgGAA: Termon have produced the shock of the Donegal SFC thus far with a stunning five-point win over Gaoth Dobhair. Francie Friel’s side produced a sensational performance to earn a deserved victory against the highly fancied Gaoth Dobhair.Gaoth Dobhair with Donegal players Neil McGee, Kieran Gillespie and Odhran MacNiallais at their disposal many were tipped by many GAA pundits locally to go all the way in this year’s Donegal SFC. Eamon McGee missed tonight’s encounter, but former Donegal star Kevin Cassidy started.However, they now face a battle on their hands to get out of the group stages – and make the last eight following tonight’s result.Daire McDaid was inspirational for the men from The Burn Road, he kicked six points, with three of those coming from placed balls.Donegal minor star Enda McCormick, who scored that stunning goal last weekend at Croke Park against Galway, was a livewire all night for Friel’s side and was always one of their keys players. A goal from Aiden Sweeney, just three minutes from the end was the decisive score, and ensured that Termon would secure another famous championship victory over Gaoth Dobhair.Termon knocked Gaoth Dobhair out of the Donegal SFC in 2014, and they have proved once again that they’re Gaoth Dobhair’s bogey team.Gaoth Dobhair now face Naomh Conaill next weekend, knowing nothing other than a win will be good enough to save their hopes of progressing to the knockout stages of the Donegal SFC.Final score: Gaoth Dobhair 0-09 Termon 1-11Super Termon stun Gaoth Dobhair in Donegal SFC was last modified: August 27th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal SFCGAAGaoth DobhairnewsShockSportTermonlast_img read more

Kevin Durant unlikely to play in Game 2 vs. Toronto

first_imgTORONTO — The Warriors have not outlined Kevin Durant’s availability beyond ruling him out for Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors on Thursday. Still, it appears unlikely Durant will return in Game 2 on Sunday after missing what will be six consecutive playoff games since injuring his right calf about three weeks ago.The reason? Warriors coach Steve Kerr considered it a “long shot” that Durant will complete a full practice either on Friday or Saturday in Toronto. Kerr …last_img

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast October 1, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest No major change in this week’s weather, but next week are are having to go much wetter. It seems that we are actually pulling some moisture forward out of the extended 11-16 day period into next week. In any case, there is still plenty of opportunity for the outlook to change, but you will notice a lot more liquid in our forecast for next week. Here is our look this morning.We are mostly sunny and very warm again today and tomorrow. South winds keep temps well above normal, and we should be rain free each day. Now, clouds will increase tomorrow afternoon in far northern Ohio, and overnight tomorrow night we cant rule out a couple of scattered showers from US 20 north…but generally we have pretty limited moisture potential. WE return to dry, sunny weather for the balance of Thursday and Friday, but with cooler temperatures. We are partly sunny Saturday. So, for the rest of this week, we really have little to no threat of moisture over the majority of the state.Sunday changes that. Scattered showers develop through the day. Initially, the moisture looks pretty benign. Sunday moisture totals will be from a few hundredths to .25″ with 70% coverage. But, then Sunday night through Thursday morning we have significant rains circulating over the state. Combined rain totals will be from .5″ to 3″ and 100% coverage. This could provide for a significant interruption in harvest.10 day rain potentialThe extended 11-16 day period is a bit drier this morning. We see partly to mostly sunny skies for Friday the 11th through Sunday the 13th. Monday the 14th can bring a few scattered showers from US 30 northward, but nothing south. We cant rule out a shower or two with otherwise cloudy to partly sunny skies for Tuesday the 15th, but we are mostly sunny to finish the extended period on Wednesday the 16th.Temperatures remain normal to a bit above normal through the middle of October ,and we see no significant threat of frost at this time. The cooler temps late this week will be welcome, but not abnormal…remember, normals are falling off quickly this time of year…and we are getting spoiled with the kind of highs we are seeing today and tomorrow.last_img read more
