Quebec ombudsperson criticizes social health workers handling of Mosque shooter case

first_imgMONTREAL — Quebec’s ombudsperson has criticized the way a social worker handled the case of the Quebec mosque shooter after he allegedly told her in confidence he regretted not having murdered more people, according to a report obtained by The Canadian Press.Guylaine Cayouette was justified in going to police, but took sloppy and incomplete notes about her encounters with Alexandre Bissonnette, wrote Genevieve Lauzon, with the Quebec ombudsperson’s office, in her report dated November 2018.The report also said Cayouette didn’t follow protocol after Bissonnette told her he wished more Muslims died in his shooting rampage.Bissonnette shot six men dead in a Quebec City mosque in January 2017. He pleaded guilty in March 2018 to six charges of first-degree murder and six of attempted murder.Cayouette, who works for an organization in Quebec City that offers mental health services to inmates, began meeting with Bissonnette in jail in February 2017.A report she authored was entered as evidence during the killer’s sentencing arguments. Cayouette recounted how Bissonnette told her on Sept. 20, 2017: “I regret not having killed more people … The victims are in the sky and I’m living in hell.”Bissonnette’s parents lodged a complaint in September 2018 with the ombudsperson over Cayouette’s interventions with their son. They claimed Cayouette told Bissonnette she “had seen everything in her career and that he could trust her.”Bissonnette’s parents argued Cayouette shouldn’t have gone to the police with the information or should have advised Bissonnette that she had the legal right to inform authorities about anything incriminating that he told her in confidence.In Lauzon’s report, she stated that Cayouette “could, according to the law, break confidentiality to reveal information given to her by your son.” Cayouette believed she had “carte blanche” to report anything Bissonnette told her to police, because he had allowed her to say what she wanted, according to Lauzon.The report stated, however, that Cayouette’s official casebook on Bissonnette did not include any notes about her Sept. 20, 2017 session with the shooter, nor did it include information about her meeting the following day with two provincial police investigators.Lauzon added that Cayouette went straight to officials at the detention centre to reveal what Bissonnette had told her, when the proper protocol indicated she should have first informed her superiors at the community organization.Benoit Cote, director of the community group that employs Cayouette, said Friday that his employee feels she did the right thing.“She feels good with her decision to have informed authorities about his comments,” Cote said in an interview. “She felt it was her duty.”Lauzon’s report recommended Cote’s employees provide inmates with clear, written instructions indicating health workers have the legal right to inform authorities about incriminating information given to them during therapy sessions.She also recommended Cayouette follow the proper protocol in the future, and to ensure her casebooks detailing her work with inmates be kept up-to-date and complete.Cote said his organization has fulfilled all the recommendations and has gone further. “We will give training to all of our employees on matters involving confidentiality,” he said.Bissonnette’s father, Raymond Bissonnette, declined to comment on the ombudsperson’s report.Giuseppe Valiante, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Things are going very slow as Canada Post strikes continue

first_imgCALGARY (660 NEWS) — Negotiations continue to inch along between Canada Post and the union representing its employees.The latest round of rolling strikes hit several communities in British Columbia on Monday, after previously stopping mail delivery in Calgary on October 25.This is despite the federal government appointed a special mediator to assist with the talks.“Things are going very slow, we haven’t made much progress,” said Gord Fischer, National Director for the Prairie Region of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers.Fischer thinks the mediator is doing the best job possible but blames some of the hold-up on the crown corporation.“Canada Post’s attitude in terms of dealing with (CUPW) is that they seem to be unmoving, they seem to be stubborn. This corporation is a bit of a dinosaur; it needs to move ahead, and it needs to start dealing with its worker issues.”Namely on that list of issues is health and safety, with the union saying work is precarious, dangerous and slow.“A lot of that goes with overburdening in terms of people being required to do more work than can be reasonably expected and work more hours in a day than can be expected,” said Fischer.The union is also not budging on its bread and butter: delivering traditional lettermail, even though lettermail deliveries have fallen sharply in the last few years while parcel deliveries skyrocket.“Many people still use it,” added Fischer. “They use it for a number of purposes, whether that’s businesses for billings and it’s also for people that mail each other still, believe it or not — greeting cards, that sort of thing.”But Ian Lee, an Associate Professor with the Sprott School of Business at Carleton University believes Canada Post needs to modernize into an e-commerce firm and put most of its focus on parcels. He said one issue with lettermail is the majority of people who still receive it are getting older. Lee added another problem with CUPW’s argument is the complaint about workload.“Right now, they’re waving their arms at 50,000 feet saying unfair workload, workload. And yet, you don’t hear these complaints from any other courier companies, so then the question is what are they doing differently?”Fischer said the rolling strikes would continue to be their primary strategy as the negotiations progress, but the locations where they will happen are kept a secret “because we like to catch Canada Post unprepared if we can.”But in the meantime, Fischer is still very optimistic a deal can be done, and the disruptions can stop soon.“We’d like to get back to work and get mail service back to normal for the Canadian people, and so we’re hoping that either the government or Canada Post get to the bargaining table and reach a deal quickly.”last_img read more

Egypt police enter university to confront Islamist demo

first_imgCAIRO – Egyptian police entered Al-Azhar University in Cairo on Wednesday to confront Islamist protesters, the first time security forces have moved on a campus since a 2010 court ruling.The police took the action at the prestigious Islamic university following a request from its administration, the interior ministry said.Students supporting deposed Islamist president Mohamed Morsi have held regular and sometimes violent protests since the beginning of the school year in September. According to the official MENA news agency, the protesting students had stormed the university’s offices on Wednesday, ransacking them and firing birdshot.Police entered “the Al-Azhar University campus following a request from the university’s head Dr Osama al-Abd to defend lives and public property,” said the interior ministry.The police had obtained permission from the state prosecutor before doing so, it added in a statement.A police general told AFP it was the first time police had entered a university since a 2010 court ruling banned guards belonging to the interior ministry from operating on their grounds.Pressed by police at every turn, Islamists have adopted universities as protest hubs to galvanise their flagging movement four months after the military overthrew Morsi.last_img read more

TVA holds meetings to build public trust in coal ash storage

GALLATIN, Tenn. — The Tennessee Valley Authority has a three-pronged mission to promote energy, economic development and the environment. Now add to that rebuilding public trust.The New Deal-era public utility has taken a beating recently for a series of missteps surrounding its storage of coal ash.That included a massive coal ash spill at TVA’s Kingston plant in 2008. Although the spill was cleaned up, the repercussions for TVA are ongoing.CEO Jeff Lyash recognizes that TVA needs to win the public’s trust. That’s why the utility has been holding a series of community meetings to explain its plans for coal ash storage and let the public ask questions.TVA is also creating community action groups for interested citizens to act as liaisons between the public and the utility.Travis Loller, The Associated Press read more

Agricultures greenhouse gas emissions on the rise warns UN agency

From farming to forestry and fisheries, agriculture greenhouse emissions have nearly doubled over the past 50 years and may increase by another 30 per cent by 2050, according to new estimates out today from the UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO).”FAO’s new data represent the most comprehensive source of information on agriculture’s contribution to global warming made to date,” said Francesco Tubiello of the agecny’s Climate, Energy and Tenure Division.For the first time, FAO has used its own FAOSTAT emissions database to estimate global greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture, forestry and other land use in contributing to the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).Emissions from crop and livestock production grew in 2001 from 4.7 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2 eq) to more than 5.3 billion tonnes in 2011 – a 14 per cent increase. “The increase occurred mainly in developing countries, due to an expansion of total agricultural outputs,” FAO saidMeanwhile, net greenhouse gas emissions due to land use change and deforestation registered a nearly 10 percent decrease over the 2001-2010 period – averaging some 3 billion tonnes CO2 eq year over the decade. “This was the result of reduced levels of deforestation and increases in the amount of atmospheric carbon being sequestered in many countries,” explained FAO, adding that, “as a result of carbon sequestration in forest sinks, some two billion tonnes of carbon dioxide were removed from the atmosphere during the same timeframe.” FAO’s data based on country reports show that while those emissions continue to increase, they are not growing as fast as emissions from fossil fuel use in other sectors – actually decreasing over time the share of agriculture and other land use out of total anthropogenic emissions. The largest source of emissions within agriculture is enteric fermentation – methane produced by livestock during digestion and released via belches. In 2011, this accounted for 39 per cent of the sector’s total greenhouse gas outputs and increased 11 per cent between 2001 and 2011. In 2011, 14 per cent of agricultural emissions (725 Mt CO2 eq.) were generated while applying synthetic fertilizers – the fastest growing emissions source in agriculture – having increased some 37 per cent since 2001. Greenhouse gases resulting from biological processes in rice paddies that generate methane make up 10 per cent of total agricultural emissions, while burning savannahs accounts for 5 per cent. FAO data revealed that in 2011, 45 per cent of agriculture-related greenhouse gas outputs occurred in Asia – followed by 25 per cent in the Americas, five per cent in Africa, eleven per cent in Europe and four per cent in Oceania. “This regional distribution was fairly constant over the last decade,” the agency noted, adding “in 1990 however, Asia’s contribution to the global total [38 per cent] was smaller than at present, while Europe’s was much larger [21 per cent].”The new FAO data also provide a detailed view of emissions from energy use in the agriculture sector generated from traditional fuel sources – including electricity and fossil fuels burned to power agricultural machinery, irrigation pumps and fishing vessels. “Up to now, information gaps have made it extremely difficult for scientists and policymakers to make strategic decisions regarding how to respond to climate change and has hampered efforts to mitigate agriculture’s emissions,” said Mr. Tubiello.FAO is already generating disaggregated assessments along supply chains and analyzing the effectiveness of comprehensive mitigation interventions in the livestock sector. Mr. Tubiello explained, “Data on emissions for agriculture, forests and other land use activities support member countries in better identifying their mitigation options and enable their farmers to take faster and more targeted climate-smart responses.”This improves their overall resilience and their food security and allows the countries to tap into international climate funding and accomplish their rural development goals. “We also see much interest in capacity development on these topics at country level and respond to these needs through regional and country-level activities around the globe,” he added. read more

Germany are back in contention warns Muller

first_imgGermany forward Thomas Müller is feeling optimistic again about their World Cup prospects ahead of their final Group F game against South KoreaFollowing their shocking defeat to Mexico in their opening game of the tournament, Germany bounced back against Sweden last weekend with Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kross scoring a 95th-minute winner for the defending world champions.Joachim Low’s side are now sitting in second place in Group F and a win against South Korea on Wednesday will be necessary in order to qualify with third-place Sweden currently tied with Germany with leaders Mexico a further three points ahead after winning both their games.Germany have never failed to go past the group stages of a World Cup and Muller is in no rush to end that record and has called on the side to take advantage of their renewed chances and beat Korea.“We’re in the tournament now and can qualify by our own merit with a win against South Korea,” said the 28-year-old, as stated on the Bayern Munich website.Top 5 Bundesliga players to watch during the weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Bundesliga’s Top 5 players to watch next weekend.The German…“We’ll certainly do everything we can to take our country far.”Muller’s former Bayern teammate Kroos agreed: “Now we need to recover, beat South Korea and put in a convincing display.”As did Dortmund’s Marco Reus: “If we play with freedom, if we produce our link-up play on the pitch, with the same passion that we showed against Sweden, then it’ll be difficult for South Korea.”Both Korea and Germany will meet on Wednesday at the Kazan Arena at 16:00 (GMT +2).last_img read more

Court Recordings Highlight Nome Judge Tim Dooleys Alleged Conduct Violations

first_imgPicture and brief résumé of Nome Superior Court Judge Timothy Dooley. Image, text: Alaska Department of Law.Nome Superior Court Judge Timothy Dooley is facing a host of allegations from a judicial oversight commission for alleged violations of professional conduct, as well as violating sections of state law that the charges allege call his integrity into question.In all, the Alaska Commission on Judicial Conduct cites six incidents—brought to their attention through anonymous complaints—beginning the first month Dooley was on the job in May of 2013 and running through September of last year.Courtroom recordings, made available through the commission, highlight a series of statements by Dooley the commission said violates state law and the state’s code of conduct for judges, by showing “insensitivity” to victims, witnesses, and others in both criminal and civil cases.In a May 2013 hearing, Judge Dooley asked a man facing a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest:“You don’t have to answer this question, but has anything good ever come out of drinking other than sex with a pretty girl?”In a November 2013 sentencing hearing—after a guilty conviction for sexual abuse of a 14-year-old girl—Dooley said to the man being sentenced:“From what I’ve read this was not someone who was, I hate to use the phrase asking for it, there are girls out there who seem to be temptresses, and this does not appear to be anything like that.”In August 2014 Judge Dooley said during a domestic violence case, when a juror could not hear the victim on the stand: “I’m not allowed to slap her around, I can just say something.”A civil trial that same month showcased Dooley’s self-described “medieval Christianity;” statements the commission said are “inappropriate to the dignity of judicial office.”“I’m going to enforce those oaths, and they’re enforceable with a two year sentence for perjury. And I’d be the sentencing judge,” Dooley began. “I also have a medieval Christianity that says if you violate an oath, you’re going to hell. You all may not share that, but I’m planning to populate hell.”A final violation alleges Judge Dooley essentially bargained a specific sentence in exchange for a defendant’s “no contest” plea. In addition, the commission states the defendant didn’t have a lawyer, all of which the commission claims is conduct that harms “the administration of justice” and brings the judicial office “into disrepute.”Marla Greenstein is the executive director of the commission. She said the complaint was built on review of court transcripts and interviews with people working in the Nome legal system. (The names of those interviewed, Greenstein added, remains confidential at this time.) She said the case has been building for months.“The commission evaluates the conduct in the investigation at various stages and gave notice to [Judge Dooley] several times in the process,” Greenstein said. “The point where they made the determination it was serious enough to warrant public charges was at a meeting on May 12.”Judge Dooley has 20 days to respond to the complaint. He said Wednesday he has no comment on the alleged violations.Greenstein said Judge Dooley could face a hearing before the nine members of the commission (she estimates as early as November). He could also reach a settlement before a hearing. Either outcome will ultimately go before the state Supreme Court, which will rule on one of three possible outcomes.“A public censure, basically a public statement that the conduct was wrong and violated the Code of Judicial Conduct,” Greenstein said. Judge Dooley could also face “suspension from office for a certain period of time; and then, the most severe, is a removal from office.”Only one judge has faced that “most severe” punishment, former Bethel Judge Dennis Cummings, who was removed from his position as judge in January 2013.An Alaska resident for nearly 40 years, Judge Dooley has lived all over the state, from urban hubs like Anchorage and Fairbanks to rural communities like Bethel and the North Slope. He opened an Anchorage-based private law practice in 1993. He assumed his current position in Nome in March of 2013 by appointment from former governor Sean Parnell.last_img read more

Chandrababu Naidu leads Opposition to demand ballot votes amid EVM malfunction allegations

first_imgAndhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu talks to press after meeting CEC in New Delhi on April 13, 2019.IANSThe opposition parties displayed a united front on Sunday, April 14, the afternoon after they attended a meeting and decided that the 2019 Lok Sabha elections which are already underway should return to ballot paper voting since the Electronic Voting Machines or EVMs were allegedly malfunctioning.The allegations were first brought up by Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu who brought up the issue news came from many parts of the country including Andhra Pradesh where the first phase of the elections was held on April 11, Thursday, that the EVMs were not working.While addressing the media on Sunday, Babu said, “We are raising doubts about the EVMs. The confidence of the voter can only be restored through paper trail machines. Even an advanced country like Germany has changed for the paper ballot. The Netherlands also moved to paper ballots.”He added that according to official information, 4,583 EVMs stopped working in Andhra Pradesh alone on Thursday. “I have never seen such an insensitive, unrealistic, irresponsible and useless Election Commission. Do you make a mockery of democracy? The EC has turned into BJP branch office,” said Babu said in anger.On April 13, the TDP chief demanded a repoll for the votes cast in Andhra Pradesh in 618 polling booths. He said that due to the malfunctioning EVMs, many people left and did not come back to cast their votes. According to The News Minute, he specified that he wants a repoll for the votes cast after 6 pm on Thursday. He also alleged that the last vote was cast at 4:30 am on Sunday morning.In a letter to the Election Commission, Babu wrote, “These inconsistencies should not arise when the same code is burnt on to the One Time Programmable (OTP) Chips. It shows that there is a possibility of changing the machine or chip or duplication of the motherboard inside the machine. This puts a question mark on the whole polling considering that 100% of polling is done on these machines, placing the democracy at risk.”last_img read more

Cane farmers to get direct subsidy of Rs 450 per quintal towards

first_imgConcerned over arrears to cane growers from sugar factories amounting to more than Rs.21,000 crore (over $3 billion) in the last season, the government on Wednesday fixed a subsidy of Rs.4.50 per quintal crushed, which will be payable directly to farmers.The decision was taken at a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, presided over by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which also decided to give priority to settlments that pertain to the previous years.”To further ensure timely payment of cane dues in the current sugar season, the Government has decided to provide a production subsidy @ of Rs. 4.50 per quintal of cane crushed to offset cane cost,” said a note isued after the meeting.The dole will be paid directly on behalf of mills and adjusted against the fair and remunerative prices payable in the previous years. “Subsequent balance if any will be credited to the mills’ account. Priority will be given to settling cane dues arrears of the previous years.”Reacting to the move, the Indian Sugar Mills’ Association (ISMA) said the government’s decision will work out to a dole of around Rs.1,000 crore as per the estimated cane crushing during 2015-16 sugar season.”This decision is significant as it means the government is no longer shying away from owning up the fair and remunerative prices it fixes for sugarcane, by directly contributing for a part of the cane price, instead of continuously burdening the millers,” the association said.”It will reduce industry’s liabilities towards cane to that extent, reducing a part of its losses,” it said, adding: that at current low sugar prices, the losses will be over Rs.1,100 crore and if the situation does not improve farmers may seek further help from the Government.Wednesday’s move is among several decisions over the past year to help cane farmers in distress, including steps to improve the liquidity of sugar mills to facilitate the payment of dues, apart from increasing the export incentive on raw sugar.The mills were also extended soft loans worth Rs.4,047 crore to ensure farmers are paid the dues expeditiously. “Furthermore, the government has provided one-year moratorium on this loan, and will bear the interest cost to the extent of Rs.600 crore for the said period,” the note said.The government has has notified mill-wise export quota, laid down norms for supplying enthnol, a byproduct, to fuel retailers and extended performance subsidy to mills that exported at least 80 percent of ther targets pre-notified trgets.last_img read more

OPEC meeting on Wednesday Things you would like to know

first_imgThe much-awaited meeting of the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) on Wednesday, November 30, would be a major trigger for global stock and currency markets, including India. An agreement on capping output would lift prices and sentiments for investors, while a deadlock would dampen the mood globally.The 14-member cartel of major oil producers will be meeting in Vienna, Austria to agree on limiting output to 32.5-33 million barrels per day; in October, it was 33.83 million barrels a day.”Output from the group’s 14 members has climbed for five months running, led by Iraq and Saudi Arabia… production recovered in Nigeria and Libya and flows from Iraq hit an all-time high,” the International Energy Agency (IEA) said in its Oil Market Report for November.On Tuesday, Brent crude oil LCOc1 was down 55 cents a barrel at $47.69 by 9.15 am GMT, while US light crude oil CLc1 dropped 55 cents at $46.53 a barrel, reported Reuters.The members of the OPEC are Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Venezuela, Algeria, Qatar, the UAE, Nigeria, Libya, Indonesia, Gabon, Ecuador and Angola.A decision to implement the September plan (to cut output) at the Wednesday meeting could see the situation moving from surplus to deficit next year while a failure to do so could see prices remaining at current levels or even slide.”If no deal is reached, our expectation of rising (crude) inventories through 1H2017 would warrant prices averaging $45 per barrel through next summer,” Reuters quoted Goldman Sachs as saying.Crude oil statistics at a glance (as sourced from IEA)Global demand in 2015 was 1.8 million barrels a day, a five-year high. It’s estimated to have dropped to 1.2 million barrels a day this year and likely to remain at that level next year.Production is expected to increase in 2017 as a result of Brazil, Canada and Kazakhstan, resulting in non-OPEC output rising by 0.5 million barrels a day in comparison to a fall of 0.9 million barrels a day this year.2017 is likely to be another year of glut, leading to prices remaining depressed.India and global crude oil dynamicsIndia, currently the world’s fastest-growing economy in the world, is a net importer of crude, sourcing 80 percent of its requirments. A rise in prices would spike its import bill while low prices would enable it to manage its finances well.India’s provisional oil import bill for 2015-2016 was Rs. 4,18,931 crore ($64.4 billion) for importing 202.5 milliom metric tonnes (mmt) of crude, down from Rs. 6,87,416 crore ($112.74 billion) paid to import 189.43 mmt.On Tuesday, benchmark stock market indices ended with gains. The BSE Sensex closed 44 points higher at 26,394 while the NSE Nifty ended the day at 8,142, up 15  points.”Market is slowly inching up supported by a strengthening rupee and the reducing prospects for an oil output freeze in tomorrow’s OPEC meeting,” Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit BNP Paribas Financial Services, said in a note.Top Sensex gainers were Maruti Suzuki, GAIL (India), Asian Paints and Bharti Airtel.last_img read more

Third Street Church of God Celebrates 104th Anniversary By Dedicating New Annex

first_imgThe Third Street Church of God will celebrate its 104th anniversary, June 13-15, with the dedication of a new annex. The dedication will mark the end of a 12-year, two-phase, $2 million building project designed to meet the needs of the church in its second century. The church is located at 1204 Third Street, N.W. in Washington’s Mount Vernon Square Historic District. “The theme of the dedication, and our anniversary, ‘Rebuild the Foundations, Restore the Soul of the City,’ underscores the amount of work that went into this project, and celebrates our commitment to the needs of the District of Columbia,” said the Rev. Dr. Cheryl J. Sanders, the third pastor to lead the church in 104 years. “We faced a lot of challenges in this project, from restrictive historic preservation requires to changes in project management and design. We’re rebuilding the foundations of antiquated buildings and continuing our vital witness to restore the soul of the city.” The annex features the Pansy M. Brown Christian Education Center, a music and fine arts studio for choral and dance rehearsals, office and meeting space, and a kitchen. The administrative lobby is named after the Rev. Dr. Samuel G. Hines, whose 25-year pastorate brought global attention to reconciliation and urban outreach. The first phase of the project, completed in April 2007, included renovation of the existing fellowship hall and sanctuary. The renovation required the church to hold services at Howard University School of Divinity for nearly four years. “With all this work done, we’re really coming home,” Sanders said. “The Third Street Church of God remains committed to our mission identity as ‘Ambassadors for Christ in the Nation’s capital.’ ” The weekend’s festivities begin with a free dedication concert at 7 p.m., June 13, featuring music, dance and drama, and special guest Steve Key and Co., a local contemporary Gospel ensemble. The anniversary and award banquet will be at 7 p.m., June 14. The ticketed black-tie event will be at Camelot by Martin’s in Upper Marlboro with Dr. H.
