MPs move to keep religious protections in Criminal Code cleanup efforts

first_imgOTTAWA – Disrupting a religious service is likely to remain a crime, since MPs on the House of Commons justice committee have agreed to change a controversial part of proposed legislation aimed at modernizing the Criminal Code.This spring, the Liberal government moved to rid the Criminal Code of sections that are redundant or obsolete, including those which involve challenging someone to a duel or fraudulently pretending to practice witchcraft.One of the changes proposed in Bill C-51 would have removed Section 176, which makes it a crime to use threat or force to obstruct a clergyman or minister from celebrating a worship service or carrying out any other duty related to his job.That came under heavy criticism from a number of major religious groups, including the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada and B’nai Brith Canada, who urged MPs on the committee to keep that section in the Code.The MPs also voted Wednesday to update the language so that it is gender neutral and refers to all religious and spiritual officiants, instead of just Christian clergy.Liberal MP Anthony Housefather, who chairs the committee, said even though the section is rarely used, it is not without merit.“It allowed many religious groups to feel recognized within the Criminal Code, to feel that their services had a special recognition and protection and we didn’t see the value in removing it,” Housefather said Thursday.“I do think in Canada today, with the number of incidents that happen at churches, synagogues and mosques, with whatever is going on right now across the country, the last thing I want any religious group to feel is they have less protection than they did before,” he said.Faisal Mirza, the chair of the Canadian Muslim Lawyers Association, made that point when he appeared before the committee.“We cannot be blind that the current climate of increased incidents of hate, specifically at places of worship, supports that religious leaders may be in need of more, not less, focused protection,” Mirza said last month.Mirza also said that while other areas of criminal law can address the deadly shooting a Quebec City mosque in January, it is important to remember that the attack happened months after someone left a pig’s head at the door of the same mosque.Rob Nicholson, the Conservative justice critic, said he was thinking about Section 176 when watching news of Sunday’s massacre at a church in Texas.“It certainly is not the time to be doing it,” Nicholson said of removing religious protections.Nicholson said he received about 900 emails on the issue last weekend and believes that played a role in bringing the Liberals around.David Taylor, a spokesman for Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, said the government will carefully consider the amendments.last_img read more

New federal food guide may be out of reach for most Canadians

first_imgThe fruit-and-vegetable-heavy fare touted in the new federal food guide may be too expensive — or perhaps just not enticing enough — to easily form the basis of most Canadians’ diets, a new report suggests.Researchers at Dalhousie University and the University of Guelph found over 52 per cent of consumers surveyed said they face barriers in adopting the guide’s recommendations.More than 26 per cent of people cited affordability, with others blaming taste preferences, lack of free time, dietary and cultural restrictions and a lack of availability in their area.The survey generally found a lack of reliance on Canada’s Food Guide for advice, though 74 per cent of respondents were aware of its 2019 upgrade.The guide ranked as the sixth most popular source of nutrition information among respondents, following friends and family, social media, magazines and cookbooks.“I would say that many Canadians are struggling with the concept of how the food guide, the plate they see on the pamphlet, connects with their own reality and frankly, Canadian agriculture,” said Sylvain Charlebois, a food researcher at Dalhousie and lead author on the report.“It’s great to celebrate this ideal but if it’s out of reach, if many Canadians feel it’s out of reach, how good is it?”Using a series of test plates, researchers found that switching from the 2007 food guide to the 2019 upgrade would save an average Canadian family of four 6.8 per cent on annual food costs.But that number is not predicted to stay stable.The report cautioned that Canadians’ rapidly changing diets, fluctuating food costs and availability of produce could make the new recommendations less affordable over the next few years.The number of vegans, vegetarians and “flexitarians” — people consciously eating less meat — is on the rise in Canada, now totalling at around 6.5 million people, a group roughly the same size as the population of the Greater Toronto Area.The report detailed how fruit and vegetable prices are increasing faster than the price of meats.If the trend continues as more people cut meat from their diets and turn to plant-based proteins, demand for and price of fruits and vegetables could increase further. That could price people out of the food guide’s suggested diet.While a lot can change in the world economy over two years, Charlebois said the projections spell trouble for future food security in Canada, where most produce is imported and prices fluctuate.“Over time, we do believe that there’s going to be an increasing number of Canadian households that will become food insecure, if they are to follow the new food guide,” Charlebois said.Health Canada said the department welcomes the researchers’ study and is currently reviewing it.It said Canadians had complained they had trouble following the recommended servings and sizes in the previous guide, and that the cost of food was considered in the revision.“This is why the new Food Guide is less prescriptive — talking about proportions rather than portions — and its recommendations can be adapted to different dietary preferences,” it said in a statement.It also noted the guide is just one of many components of approaching healthy eating.“The findings of the study could potentially help inform our efforts to promote broad awareness and use of the Food Guide among Canadians,” it said.Charlebois said the science-based guide should be reviewed more frequently, drawing from the expertise of economists, sociologists and historians to better reflect the realities people face when building their diets.Working with the agriculture sector is also important, Charlebois said, in order to assess whether Canada’s production capacity lines up with what the food guide recommends people eat.last_img read more

Officials from UNbacked court appeal for resources to finish Sierra Leone trials

16 July 2009Top officials from the United Nations-backed Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL) today appealed to States for the necessary resources to conclude its work, including the war crimes trial of former Liberian president Charles Taylor, and deliver justice to thousands of victims. Top officials from the United Nations-backed Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL) today appealed to States for the necessary resources to conclude its work, including the war crimes trial of former Liberian president Charles Taylor, and deliver justice to thousands of victims.Briefing the Security Council, Prosecutor Stephen Rapp recalled that the commission of serious crimes against the civilian population of Sierra Leone motivated the creation of the Court, which is based in Freetown. “We ask for the cooperation and support necessary to complete its mandate, so that justice can be achieved for the victims of those crimes,” he said, noting this will send a “powerful message” that the international community strongly supports institutions established to hold to account those responsible for such atrocities, and by doing so, deter their perpetration.“For the victims – the thousands who had been mutilated, the tens of thousands who had been murdered, the hundreds of thousands who had been subjected to sexual violence – the Special Court offers justice by holding to account those alleged to bear the greatest responsibility for these crimes,” stated Mr. Rapp. He told the 15-member body that the Court’s immediate financial situation may be fairly characterized as “an impending crisis. “Even if all pledged donations from donors for this year come in early, our funds will run dry before next year’s round of donations, and the Special Court will not have the resources necessary to complete its work.”Set up jointly by the Government of Sierra Leone and the UN in 2002, the Court is mandated to try those who bear the greatest responsibility for serious violations of international humanitarian law and national law committed in Sierra Leone since 30 November 1996.Mr. Rapp noted that the Court has been ground-breaking in several respects, including the first-ever convictions on the charge of sexual slavery, both as a war crime and crime against humanity, as well as convictions on the use of child soldiers.The Court has completed three multiple-accused trials. In addition, a fourth trial – that of Mr. Taylor, who faces charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity – is currently under way at The Hague. It is expected that Mr. Taylor’s trial, which this week saw the former leader take the stand in his own defence, will be conducted to allow for a judgment by mid-2010, and for finalization on appeal by early 2011. “We project that in February 2011, upon delivery of the appeals judgment in the Taylor case, we will have completed all of the Special Court’s judicial activities,” the Court’s President, Justice Renate Winter, told the Council.The Court will, however, still be bound by a number of legal obligations – known as “residual issues” – that will not terminate once the trials and appeals are completed, she noted. A small successor body will likely need to be established to manage and perform residual functions, including the enforcement of sentences, maintenance of the Court’s archives, witness protection and assistance, and the possible trial or transfer of the case of the one indictee-at-large, former Sierra Leonean military leader Johnny Paul Koroma.Justice Winter stated that assistance to the Court will continue to be as important in the future as it has been in the past. “To successfully complete its mandate in the coming months, the Special Court continues to rely on the indispensable support of the Security Council and all Member States. Today, more than ever before, this request is urgent.” read more

Expansion to UN headquarters in Africa signals support for Kenya

“We are the only UN headquarters in a developing country,” UNON Director-General Klaus Toepfer said at the groundbreaking ceremony today. “It also underlines the importance to the UN family of this continent, this location and the confidence we have in Kenya as a stable and democratic country.”The total value of the UN to Kenya, including salaries to local staff, revenues from services such as telecommunications, letters and payments to local firms is estimated at $350 million annually, according to the latest available figures.The office space, scheduled to be completed in 2005, is needed to assist in the expansion of the UN Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) following its recent promotion to a fully-fledged programme. There are also additional demands for space from the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), Operation Life-Line Sudan and the World Food Programme (WFP). read more

All Brooks Koepka Does Is Win Majors

2Peter ThomsonAUS5683.3 Koepka is in extremely rare — and international — companyFor men’s golfers with at least 3 major championships since the PGA Tour was founded in 1929, share of total PGA Tour wins that were majors 5Seve BallesterosESP5955.6 10Jordan SpiethUSA31127.3 When Brooks Koepka outdueled Tiger Woods (and Adam Scott) to win the PGA Championship Sunday afternoon, he joined an exclusive group of golfers with three career major championships to their name. In all of golf history, going back even past the days of Tom Morrises both young and old, only 46 players have ever won three majors. Fewer still have won three in the span of 14 months the way Koepka has, having captured the 2017 and 2018 U.S. Opens on top of his win at Bellerive Country Club this weekend. Koepka may still have trouble getting recognized by the general public, but he is getting plenty of recognition in golf’s history books.One weird thing about Koepka, though, is that he hasn’t really done much winning outside of golf’s most prestigious events. Other than that pair of U.S. Opens and this recent PGA Championship win, the only official PGA Tour event Koepka has won was the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open. You don’t have to win a ton of events to make a good living in golf, of course. Koepka has done plenty well for himself, earning nearly $20 million in official money and ranking among the top 20 in FedEx Cup points for four years running. But it’s still striking how much of his success has been concentrated in major championships.Since the PGA Tour was founded, only two golfers with at least three career major wins — Henry Cotton and Peter Thomson — have had a greater share of their total career PGA Tour wins come in majors than Koepka’s 75 percent mark: 3Brooks KoepkaUSA3475.0 9Rory McIlroyNIR41428.6 10Payne StewartUSA31127.3 * Cotton’s victories were from an era before the PGA European Tour was founded, but were all at events located in Europe.Source: Wikipedia, PGA Tour 7Gary PlayerZAF92437.5 8Larry NelsonUSA31030.0 1Henry Cotton*ENG33100.0% RankPlayerCountryMajor WinsPGA Tour WinsMajors as Share of Wins 4Nick FaldoENG6966.7 6Pádraig HarringtonIRL3650.0 It’s no coincidence that the leaderboard above is littered with foreign-born players who didn’t regularly play on the PGA Tour. For instance, Thomson, an Aussie, won an impressive 84 professional tournaments in his career, but almost all of them were in Europe, Oceania or Asia. Particularly in the early days of pro golf, great non-American players seldom came over to the States to ply their trade, so this metric is a bit skewed for them. That’s why Koepka stands out as the only American remotely close to the top of our list; the next-highest is Larry Nelson at just 30 percent.One reason for Koepka’s odd ratio: His path to greatness contained detours. It included a stint on the second-tier European Challenge Tour out of college — where Koepka won a lot, enough to gain automatic promotion to the main tour within roughly a calendar year. Once there, he remained a card-carrying member of the European Tour through the end of the 2015 season. Since he didn’t play a full season of PGA Tour events until three years ago, he hasn’t had quite as much time to pile up wins in America as we’d expect just from eyeballing the span of his pro career.Still, Koepka owns one of the oddest — and most enviable — major records of any golfer ever. The way he’s playing, he’ll probably rack up ordinary PGA Tour wins before too long, but for now he has saved almost all of his winning for the tournaments that matter most. read more

Zambia Copper Investments branching out

first_imgZambia Copper Investments (ZCI) believes that despite the large number of institutions operating in the region, significant growth opportunities exist within selected niche areas of activity. “Such opportunities exist in base metals and energy minerals in Central Southern Africa.” It has therefore put forward a new business plan.ZCI’s objectives would include:To develop and maintain an outstanding portfolio of mining and metals assets which diversify risk and provide sustainable earnings growthTo maximise the return on investment on each asset in the portfolio by adopting a disciplined investment approachTo create and maintain a market profile which would enhance the marketability of its shares and create wealth and income for all of ZCI’s stakeholdersTo develop strong relationships with governments of host countries and local communities that ZCI would be invested in and be recognised as a key partner in national resource development.“ZCI, therefore, has an excellent opportunity of becoming a significant player by adopting a strategy of becoming a minerals and metals investment company across the sub-region, and not merely an operator of just one large asset in one country. This is important in order to obtain controlled exposure to different risks and rewards arising from various base metals and energy mineral deposits in different countries and to exploit different emerging opportunities in the sector.“In order to realise this vision, the current corporate structure of ZCI is to be changed. A management team with mining and metals experience and entrepreneurial flair focused on creating value for the shareholders has been put in place.”last_img read more

We played well with 10 men – Rodgers

Stampede State Rec Area Advocates Say Theyll Persist Despite Budget Woes

first_imgSupporters of the Stampede State Recreation Area say it’s becoming so popular that is needs management by the state. It’s a favorite of outdoor recreationalists of all kinds, like these hikers enjoying the trail around Eightmile Lake.(Credit Friends of the Stampede)Supporters of the proposed Stampede State Recreation Area near Healy aren’t giving up. Tonight the Denali Borough Assembly will consider and probably pass another resolution urging the Legislature to create the new rec area. Supporters hopes grew after a local official and Stampede supporter was elected to the state house last fall. But the new lawmaker says it’s unlikely to pass this session, because of state budget concerns.Download AudioThe most recent version of legislation to create the Stampede rec area would designate 88,000-acres of state land west of Healy, in the northeast corner of Denali National Park for that use. Denali Citizens Council President Hannah Raglund says it would protect the area and local and traditional uses ranging from berry-picking to off-roading.“The rec area was chosen because of the range of recreational activities that are allowed,” she said. “People can still fish, can still hunt, can still trap.”Raglund says state management is also needed to limit damage to the Stampede Trail and other areas, like the abandoned bus made famous by Christopher McCandless and the “Into the Wild” book and movie about his wanderings into the Stampede.Several research sites are scattered around the Stampede, including this one that monitors the changes in the area’s permafrost.(Credit Friends of the Stampede)“We see people from all around there world out there, all year round now. Walking, skiing, winter, spring, summer, fall.”Raglund says the rec area also would protect habitat, wildlife surveys and scientific research venues operated by the University of Alaska and other organizations.“They found it to be a great site to study permafrost that’s beginning to thaw,” she said.The citizens council has gotten lawmakers to introduce bills to create a Stampede Recreation Area in each of the past three legislative sessions. The measures haven’t gone anywhere, but  group members were more optimistic about its chances this year“A lot of us here were pretty excited to see we had a local Healy resident that was elected to represent us in Juneau,” she said.The old Fairbanks city bus made famous by “Into the Wild” has become one the Stampede’s favorite attractions.(Credit Friends of the Stampede)Raglund says the election of former Denali Borough Mayor and Stampede state rec area supporter Dave Talerico to the state House raised optimism among supporters. But Talerico says since the election it’s become clear that any proposal requiring any additional state spending will probably be dead on arrival.“With the budget concerns that we have this year, I would say there’ll be a lot of things that will be put on hold for the time being, just due to the fact there’ll be expense involved,” he said.Raglund says the rec area would pretty much support itself through user fees.And David Evans, the deputy presiding officer of the Denali Borough Assembly, says he believes it wouldn’t cost much to create and manage the rec area.“I think it’s relatively minor, when you look at the state as a whole,” he said.Evans says the Assembly will probably pass another resolution in this month’s meeting that again calls for creation of the rec area.“It’s been widely supported by the Denali Borough Assembly and a lot of the area residents,” he said.But Talerico cites other issues beyond cost, including opposition by the Alaska Miners Association and Usibelli Coal Mine. A Usibelli spokeswoman says the company is concerned the rec area would create regulatory obstacles to its plans to explore for natural gas in the Stampede.Raglund says the most recent version of the legislation preserves Usibelli’s exploration leases and continued mining operations.last_img read more

Mozilla plans to push privacy in Firefox

first_imgMozilla plans to push privacy in Firefox by Martin Brinkmann on August 31, 2018 in Firefox – 29 commentsIn Changing Our Approach To Anti-Tracking, Mozilla revealed plans to improve the privacy protection of Firefox users and the performance of the browser through the improved implementation of content blocking in the web browser.Firefox will protect users by blocking tracking by default and improve performance at the same time according to Mozilla.We reviewed the new content blocking options that Mozilla tests in Firefox Nightly currently already in July. The new feature, called Content Blocking in Nightly, integrates Firefox’s long standing feature Tracking Protection and other content blocking options, and makes these more accessible in the browser.Mozilla launched Tracking Protection in 2014 in Firefox Nightly but enabled it for Private Browsing only in Firefox 42. Two years later, Firefox users could enable Tracking Protection for regular browsing sessions as well.Competing browsers introduced ad-blocking and content blocking functions of their own. Brave browser with its block-all approach, Opera browser with its integrated ad-blocking feature, and even Google launched a content blocker in Chrome to block advertisement on sites that use certain ad formats the company deems undesirable.Mozilla’s privacy push in FirefoxMozilla plans to test and implement several privacy-improving features in the Firefox browser in the coming months.A new blog post on the official Mozilla blog highlights three key areas of importance.Page Load Performance improvements thanks to the blocking of slow-loading trackers.Blocking storage access and cookies from third-party tracking content.Blocking harmful practices such as crypto-currency mining or fingerprinting.Starting in Firefox 63 and dependent on a Shield study that Mozilla plans to run in September, Firefox will block slow-loading trackers automatically for all users in all browsing modes. Any tracker with a loading time of 5 seconds or longer is classified as a slow loading tracker by Firefox.  Mozilla has high hopes that the blocking of slow loading trackers will improve the performance for Firefox users.In Firefox 65, Mozilla plans to strip cookies from third-party tracking content and block storage access provided that a Shield study in September will yield satisfactory results.Last but not least, Firefox will block harmful scripts and practices by default . Mozilla did not reveal a target version for the implementation only that it will land in a future version of the web browser.Firefox Nightly users can test the content blocking functionality right now already. Current versions of Nightly display content blocking options in the preferences and when users click on the information icon next to the site’s address in the address bar.Current options allow users to block slow loading trackers, all detected trackers, and third-party cookie trackers or all third-party cookies.The content blocking functionality supports exceptions to allow certain sites to run identified trackers, e.g. to avoid site breakage.Is it enough?Firefox will block some forms of tracking in the near future and that is definitely a good thing. Some may question why Mozilla makes a distinction between slow-loading trackers and all trackers in Firefox, and why Firefox does not block all trackers automatically by default.One possible explanation for that is that blocking all trackers may prevent certain pages from loading correctly.Still, with Google not being able to implement full-scale ad-blocking in Chrome, it is an area that Firefox could really outshine Google Chrome if implemented correctly.The blocking of slow-loading trackers may be beneficial to privacy as well, but it is first and foremost an attempt to improve the performance of Firefox since any other tracker that is not slow-loading is still loaded by default.Now You: What would you like to see in Firefox in this regard?SummaryArticle NameMozilla plans to push privacy in FirefoxDescriptionIn Changing Our Approach To Anti-Tracking, Mozilla revealed plans to improve the privacy protection of Firefox users and the performance of the browser.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
