first_imgOTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is set to shuffle his cabinet today to account for the sudden resignation of Nova Scotia MP Scott Brison from his post as Treasury Board president.The shuffle is expected to be a small one, affecting as few cabinet ministers as possible just months ahead of the fall federal election.Insiders confirm that Indigenous Services Minister Jane Philpott will take over for Brison, and Veterans Affairs Minister Seamus O’Regan is also on the move.He has cancelled an event that was set to take place today in his home province of Newfoundland and Labrador.The prime minister also must elevate a legislator from Nova Scotia to cabinet to make up for the void Brison leaves.Political observers have speculated that person will likely be either Sean Fraser or Bernadette Jordan — possibly taking over for O’Regan at Veterans Affairs.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

first_imgOver the past 18 months Animal Defenders International (ADI) has assisted the Government of Peru with enforcement of their national ban on wild animal circuses and illegal wildlife.Over 100 animals have been saved from entertainment and the illegal wildlife trade including lions, bears, a tiger, mountain lion, birds and dozens of monkeys.Next month, ADI will charter a huge cargo aircraft and fly 33 ex-circus lions – 24 from Peru and 9 from Colombia – home to Africa. The lions have led such tragic lives that it is not possible to release them into the wild; almost all have suffered from having their front toes cut off to remove their claws and many have had their teeth smashed. The lions will be taken care of for life at Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary in South Africa.The airlift, the biggest of its kind ever, will cost $10,000 for each lion and ADI is calling for sponsorship for each of the 33 lions. Meet the lions here.James Bond actor Roger Moore has urged people to contribute to the fund, model Twiggy has donated and US TV legend Bob Barker’s DJ&T Foundation helped kick-start the search and rescue mission with a contribution.California’s Oakland Zoo, which has long campaigned against wild animals in circuses, has immediately pledged $10,000 for one lion’s airfare and hopes to raise enough in the Bay Area to help more lions.Colleen Kinzley, Director of Animal Care, Conservation & Research at Oakland Zoo said “We are so excited to support ADI in the transport of thirty-three rescued lions to sanctuary in Africa. Having spent their lives in terrible captive conditions, forced to perform, abused, and neglected they will finally have the opportunity to live out their lives with peace and dignity. Please donate whatever you can to help transport these majestic animals to their forever home.”Facebook Group Lion Lovers has also raised the airfare to get a lion home.Diane Miller, from Florida who runs Facebook Group Lion Lovers: “I started my own Facebook group Lion Lovers several years ago, my love for lions started by watching BBC’s Big Cat Diary and following the lions of the Maasai Mara. I had raised $1,000 for the Global March for Lions and was asked if I could raise funds for the ADI lions and I said I would give it a go never dreaming we would raise $26,000!”Lion Lovers 7,500 members followed each rescue and kept donating as each lion was rescued. The group shares stunning images of wild lions and over a dozen top wildlife photographers offered images for auction to help the battered Peruvian and Colombian lions home. The group adopted a male called Rey rescued with five other lions from a circus in the historic Andean town of Cuzco.Diane: “I actually flew to Peru in October and got to meet Jan and the ADI crew, and all the lions including Rey. It was an amazing experience, one I will never forget. So proud to be associated with this amazing organization, they are focused and get the job done!”ADI President Jan Creamer said, “After such sad, desperate lives, these lions deserve to live in peace under the African sun. It is a huge challenge, so we need all the support we can get – each lion’s ticket is $10,000 so there is room for everyone to pitch in and help get a lion home.”Two crowdfunding sites have taken up the cause this week:LoveAnimals.org has so far raised $500 of a $33,000 target towards the lion flightThe Animal Rescue Site on GreaterGood.com is seeking to raise $10,000 to fly one of the oldest lions called Leo the 6,900 miles from Peru to Africa – a donation of $7.25 gets Leo another 5 miles closer.ADI also has a range of sponsorship options available. A donation of $10,000 to cover a lion’s full airfare will be acknowledged with placement of 10 large logos (or a name or message) on a lion’s travel crate. For $100 someone can sign up for the “People’s Lion Ticket” and have their name alongside 99 others on a travel crate.Jan Creamer: “This is a way for people to show their support and be involved in this historic animal rescue. A dream ending is in sight for these lions and with every donation they are a step closer to a life back in the African bush where they belong.last_img read more

The Governor in Council granted approval for the project earlier this month.Underhill said that after construction starts later this year, there will be between 1,400 and 1,800 workers employed in building the pipeline during the peak of construction, which works out to up to 600 workers per spread.She said that TransCanada’s contractors for the project have stated that they will want to use local accommodations and will be putting an emphasis on hiring locally.For workers from out of the area, TransCanada says it will be getting two accommodation camps built, which is fewer than originally proposed.last_img read more

NEW YORK — Just a week after announcing its $1.4 billion acquisition of Gannett , GateHouse Media was again laying off journalists and other workers at its newspapers, possibly foreshadowing the future awaiting employees of what will become the largest U.S. newspaper company.GateHouse and Gannett say the merger will allow GateHouse to accelerate its newspapers’ move to digital while paying down huge sums GateHouse borrowed in order to fund the acquisition. But it’s unclear exactly how it will make that happen.Last week, more than two dozen newsroom employees and other workers were reportedly laid off at 10 newspapers, from Providence, Rhode Island, to Brockton, Massachusetts, to Oklahoma City. The Associated Press confirmed several of these layoffs with the affected employees, others in their newsrooms or union representatives. GateHouse did not announce the workforce reductions, and neither the company nor its owner, New Media, had any comment for this story.Gannett also declined to comment, but pointed to previous public statements by New Media CEO Mike Reed in which he said the merged company would “not only preserve but actually enhance quality journalism.”The latest layoffs may not be directly related to the merger. GateHouse also reportedly laid off dozens of employees in May and this winter. Its earnings reports show that revenue is declining when the impact of acquisitions is stripped out.Further newsroom cuts show that “GateHouse doesn’t have a vision for growing revenue, only cutting costs,” charged Andrew Pantazi, a reporter at the Florida Times-Union, a GateHouse paper in Jacksonville, Florida, and the head of a union chapter there. “Eventually they’ll run out of costs to cut.”Many in the newsrooms and the communities that depend on those newspapers are mourning the changes wrought by previous GateHouse cuts and bracing for more. Others, noting that both readers and advertisers have been deserting newspapers for more than a decade, argue that being part of a larger chain is the only route to survival for smaller papers often still struggling to migrate their publications online.Over the past decade, GateHouse has closed five daily newspapers and closed or merged dozens of weeklies, according to “The Expanding News Desert ,” a University of North Carolina study on the state of the local news coverage.GateHouse, whose leadership includes current and former Associated Press board members, is trying to reassure employees and investors. It says that bringing together the two companies will lead to about $300 million in annual cost cuts, and promises multiple sources of digital revenue to sustain the combined company and continue its commitment to quality journalism.Some argue that such consolidation is key to saving local journalism, which also competes for people’s attention with TV and Facebook. “They’re ultimately giving support to hundreds of individual publications that wouldn’t have a chance of standing on their own,” said David Chavern, CEO of the news publisher trade group News Media Alliance.But first, GateHouse has to pay down debt, including $1.8 billion borrowed from private equity firm Apollo at a high interest rate to get the Gannett deal done. It has also promised to continue a shareholder dividend and said it expects that to rise.GateHouse has lagged competitors in adapting to a post-print world. Digital business accounts for just 12% of its revenue, compared to 36% for Gannett. Such digital revenue includes online subscriptions and ads on newspaper websites as well as income from separate businesses such as online marketing and productivity tools for small companies.While the company says it will invest in digital, such investments will probably be in the new lines of business, not necessarily in its newsrooms, said Reed Phillips, managing partner at investment bank Oaklins DeSilva + Phillips.“The trendline for newspapers is continuing erosion of revenues,” he said, which will probably lead to additional newsroom cuts.Newsroom staffing at U.S. newspapers has fallen 47% to 38,000 people in 2018 from 72,000 in 2004, according to Pew Research . Circulation has plummeted in tandem. Pew estimates weekday circulation fell almost 48% over the same period to 28.6 million.While a few national publications like the Jeff Bezos-owned Washington Post, the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal have successful online operations, the situation is very different at smaller local papers across the country.After GateHouse buys a newspaper, cost cuts typically follow. Functions like page design and copy editing are shifted to remote hubs that handle the work for several newspapers. (Other newspaper chains also have hubs for editing and page design.) Critics say media companies backed by financial firms, like GateHouse, are especially aggressive about closing or selling off newspapers in decline.The Worcester Telegram & Gazette, which has been publishing in Massachusetts’ second-largest city since 1866, has been through four owners in the past decade, including GateHouse, which purchased it in early 2015.Overall, the newsroom has shrunk to 25 reporters, copy editors and photographers from 47 during its four years under GateHouse, said Rick Eggleston, a copy editor and head of the local union. “The mantra at GateHouse is doing more with less.”Having fewer reporters from outside Boston asking questions of state officials “hurts the rest of the state,” said Tim Murray, president of the Worcester chamber of commerce and a former lieutenant governor of the state. “It’s hard to hold people accountable.”Despite the cost-cutting, GateHouse newspapers are striving to engage readers who increasingly get news on their phones. The Cape Cod Times in Hyannis, Massachusetts, and the Columbus Dispatch in Ohio were cited among “10 Newspapers That Do It Right ” by the media trade publication Editor & Publisher, which cited innovative digital projects that have boosted readership.The Cape Cod paper, for example, launched a program that invited readers to submit suggestions for investigative stories. Similarly, The Fayetteville Observer in North Carolina started a new feature that invites readers to answer a topical question it posts each Sunday.But the Observer, acquired by GateHouse in 2016, has struggled. Buyouts followed the acquisition, and this week GateHouse eliminated the job of the newspaper’s publisher, assigning that responsibility to an executive who already oversees four other North Carolina papers.The Cape Cod newspaper, meanwhile, laid off courthouse reporter Wheeler Cowperthwaite last week. Cowperthwaite said GateHouse offered him just $400 in severance – which, had he accepted, would have barred him from applying for work at GateHouse newspapers for two years.He turned it down.Tali Arbel And Alexandra Olson, The Associated Press read more

The World Cup takes place in Britain from September 2015. What’s another 15 months between a legend and his fans?Jamie Heaslip, who will captain Leinster against Stade Francais in Friday’s Challenge Cup Final, declared O’Driscoll, for club and country, was a great guy to have around.Heaslip expanded, “He’s fantastic for bringing younger players through, giving them his time and setting a tremendous example in training and how he approaches the game. It’s fantastic to have him around for another year. He just adds another dimension to our game  and has a wealth of experience as well.”“You never know,” Heaslip said, “he might go another year after this.” Joe Schmidt and Jamie Heaslip at today’s press briefing. (©INPHO/Lorraine O’Sullivan)O’Driscoll commented, last week, that he would dearly wish to leave the sport ‘on my own terms’ and, while a Six Nations championship title or Grand Slam win would be memorable, a fifth World Cup campaign would be within touching distance. Should O’Driscoll, who would be 36 at the World Cup, signed a two-year deal to halt further speculation?“You can just go ahead and suggest that to him,” Schmidt told TheScore.ie, “that would be just fine. That would see him, just about, through to the next World Cup; that might be handy.I’ve no doubt that this time next year, we may be saying the same thing. I guess he’ll have to try and convince [wife] Amy and little Sadie [daughter] of that because I think, inevitably, that always puts a slightly different equilibrium into people’s lives.”Schmidt added, “In the short term, I’m delighted he’s here for one.

first_imgCanadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservative government has long refused to support Omar Khadr, reflecting ambivalence in Canada over the Khadr family.Khadr’s long-time lawyer Dennis Edney and wife have offered to take him into their home.Edney said the government wants to drag it out even more.“Why? Just because they can’t stand to see that young Muslim boy out there,” Edney said.In court later Tuesday, Ross, the lower court judge, listened as the two sides hammered out bail conditions, should Bielby refuse the stay request by the government.Among conditions Ross imposed were that Khadr wear a tracking bracelet, live with the Edneys, observe a curfew between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m., and have only supervised access to the Internet. Also, he could only communicate in English with his family in Ontario via video or phone under supervision, Ross said.“His case is obviously extremely unique,” Ross said. “He has grown up in jail. There will be challenges ahead. Those should be carefully managed.”Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

Since 2012 he’s been held in a Canadian prison, serving out an eight-year sentence handed down by a U.S. military commission in 2010. He was convicted of five war crimes, including throwing a grenade when he was 15 years old that killed a U.S. Army sergeant in Afghanistan during a 2002 firefight.Khadr, once the youngest detainee at Guantanamo and now 28, has since said he only agreed to a 2010 plea deal to get out of Guantanamo and return to Canada.Canadian government lawyers argued Tuesday that releasing Khadr on bail would jeopardize the repatriation of other Canadian prisoners and damage Ottawa’s relations with Washington.But U.S. State Department Acting Deputy spokesman Jeff Rathke said it is up to the Canadian courts to decide whether Khadr should be released. “We’ll leave it to Canadian authorities and the Canadian judicial system to make their decision,” Rathke said.Court of Queen’s Bench Justice June Ross granted Khadr bail last month while he appeals his war crimes conviction in the United States.Defense attorneys say Khadr was pushed into war by his father, Ahmed Said Khadr, an alleged senior al-Qaida financier whose family stayed with Osama bin Laden briefly when Omar Khadr was a boy.
