first_imgLANGFORD, B.C. — British Columbia Premier John Horgan says Alberta may be the best place to boost refining capacity to increase a supply of fuel to the province.The price of gasoline has been rising in B.C. for the last month and the cost for a litre of gas in Metro Vancouver has been hovering around $1.70.Horgan says part of the problem is there’s too much demand and not enough supply, but adds that a 30-cent rise in gas prices in the last three months appears to be a result of gouging by oil companies.The premier says most refineries are close to the source of the product and because Alberta has more expertise, that may be the better location for new refining capacity.In 2014, B.C. newspaper mogul David Black had proposed a $13-billion oil refinery on B.C.’s northern coast, and Horgan says he encourages Black to bring the plan forward to go through the regulatory and environmental process.Metro Vancouver drivers pay over 50 cents a litre in taxes to the federal and provincial governments and for carbon and transit taxes.

first_imgNew Delhi: “I want my life,” Bilkis Bano said on Wednesday at a Press conference here when asked whether she wants to take up the offer of a government job and house that the Supreme Court has asked the Gujarat government to provide for her.In a first for India, the highest court in the country ordered the Gujarat government on Tuesday to pay Bano Rs 50 lakh as compensation, a government job and housing in an area of her choice. At the press conference, Bano also said she intends to use a part of the money awarded to her as compensation to set up a foundation in her daughter Saleha’s name, who was murdered in front of her along with 13 other family members by a mob during the 2002 Gujarat riots.

Bano gave birth to her daughter months after the incident, and she said her 16-year-old daughter now wants to become a lawyer. Supreme Court lawyer Shobha Gupta, who took up Bano’s case in 2003 and was instrumental in getting the compensation for her, said this judgment will definitely set a precedent for victims of such crimes who sue for compensations. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KGupta said the 17-year struggle has been extremely painful for her and all people involved specifically because of repeated discussions and research on the nature of the crime, which was required for this victory.

You end up not having anything to lose,” Bano said, replying to journalists who were in awe of how she could have kept at it for so long. She said that it is a monumental victory for the court to have acknowledged the Gujarat government’s massive failure in her protecting her constitutional rights.last_img read more

OTTAWA — An alliance of First Nations leaders is preparing to fight proposed new pipelines both in the courts and through unspecified direct action.Native leaders from both Canada and the United States were on Parliament Hill on Wednesday to underline their opposition to both the Northern Gateway and Keystone XL pipelines.[np_storybar title=”With First Nations envoy, Tories aim to divide and conquer on energy projects” link=”https://business.financialpost.com/2013/03/19/tories-aim-to-divide-conquer-with-envoy-who-will-canvas-first-nations-on-energy-projects/?__lsa=62d2-4972″%5DThere is no deadlier combination for resources developers than opposition from a joint front of environmentalists and First Nations.In what appears to be a divide-and-conquer strategy, Prime Minister Stephen Harper named a special representative Tuesday to investigate first hand why First Nations in British Columbia are so opposed to energy infrastructure projects, including the controversial Northern Gateway pipeline.Continue reading . . . [/np_storybar]The first would tie the Alberta oil sands to the West Coast, while the second would send bitumen to refineries on the American Gulf Coast.Some of the chiefs brushed off the federal government’s appointment this week of a special envoy to look at tensions between natives and the energy industry.Vancouver-based lawyer Doug Eyford is to focus on energy infrastructure in Western Canada, but some native leaders say he has no credibility.He is to examine First Nations concerns about the troubled Northern Gateway proposal, as well as the development of liquid natural gas plants, marine terminals and other energy infrastructure in British Columbia and Alberta.He will discuss environmental protection, jobs and economic development, and First Nations rights to a share of the wealth from natural resources.Some native chiefs, however, said Eyford has already failed. Although he is also the federal government’s chief negotiator on comprehensive land claims, they said he hasn’t accomplished much on that file.Chief Allan Adam of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation said natives are determined to block the pipelines.“It’s going to be a long, hot summer,” he said at a news conference.“We have a lot of issues at stake.”Phil Lane Jr. of the American Yankton Sioux, said native groups south of the border will stand with their Canadian cousins.“We’re going to stop these pipelines on way or another,” he said.Chief Martin Louie of the Nadleh Whut’en First Nation in northern B.C., said the pipeline opponents will never back down.“If we have to keep going to court, we’ll keep doing that,” he said.He said the stakes are high and go beyond native issues.“We’re the ones that’s going to save whatever we have left of this earth,” he said.Chief Reuben George of the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation on Vancouver Island said it’s time to act against the federal government’s resource development agenda.“We, as a nation, have to wake up,” he said. “We have to wake up to the crazy decisions that this government’s making to change the world in a negative way.” read more

first_imgJames Dimitrious Gargasoulas accused of killing six people in a rampage in Melbourne’s Bourke Street Mall on 20 January 2017, is said to be mentally unfit to stand trial.In an investigation hearing at the Supreme Court of Victoria on Wednesday, consultant psychiatrist Lester Walton told a jury that Gargasoulas is schizophrenic and continues to have delusions, stating that the 28-year-old believes “he is the second coming of Christ”.“He has cosmological, Aboriginal and religious beliefs that he is the messiah and it’s all mixed up together,” Walton said, reports The Guardian Australia.To back up the claim, a letter written by Gargasoulas was read out by his defence barrister, Theo Alexander: “To all spiritual people, this is the most important spiritual information as promised by a Jesus in the holy Bible”.The letter continued: “I was born for a reason” to “reveal the truth” and “have the scales removed from your eyes”.Meanwhile in another letter, he referred to himself as “King James George Gargasoulas” and “ruler of the universe”.“Are these views that you believe he genuinely believes?” justice Lex Lasry asked the psychiatrist, to which Walton replied “Yes, your honour”.“He has said straightforwardly to me that he is the messiah,” he revealed.In addition to the six counts of murder, Gargasoulas is also facing 28 charges of attempted murder amongst other charges.The hearing continues.

first_imgFAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) – The first of eight court-martial trials was set to begin Tuesday for U.S. soldiers accused of hazing a Chinese-American recruit over his ethnicity until he killed himself in Afghanistan.Sgt. Adam Holcomb of Youngstown, Ohio, will be the first of eight men to go before a military court in Fort Bragg. Young faces a slew of charges, the most serious of which is negligent homicide, and could get nearly 18 years in prison if convicted on all counts. His case was set to start around 1 p.m. after the judge delayed the original morning start time, without giving a reason, court spokesman Thom McCollum said. Top Stories Elizabeth OuYang, president of the New York chapter of the Organization of Chinese Americans, a nonprofit advocacy group that worked with the Chen family, said the community wants justice for Chen. OuYang has called for military reform.“This death could have been avoided, and we were fighting two wars at the time,” OuYang said. “To have Pvt. Danny Chen’s life wasted in this fashion is inexcusable. It could have been prevented and no soldier, including Asia- American soldiers’, life is dispensable like this.”The military is preparing for an influx of Chinese reporters and international media attention.Chen was a member of the 3rd Battalion, 21st Infantry Regiment, 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division based in Fort Wainwright, Alaska, but was under the command of a Fort Bragg general in Afghanistan. Maj. Gen. James Huggins requested the trial be transferred to Fort Bragg, which military officials said worked out better logistically.

According to court documents, Chen was kicked, dragged from his tent and had sandbags tied to his arms.He was called racial slurs and forced to speak to his fellow soldiers in Chinese, according to his family, with whom he shared details of his ordeal. For months, beginning during training, soldiers in his platoon peppered him with racial insults such as “Jackie Chen” and “Dragon Lady,” his family said. On the day he died, they say he was forced to crawl about 100 yards across gravel carrying his equipment while his fellow soldiers threw rocks at him.He had been deployed for two months when he was found dead in a guardhouse.Eight soldiers are facing charges ranging from dereliction of duty to involuntary manslaughter in connection with Chen’s death.Besides Holcomb, four other soldiers are also charged with negligent homicide. The judge’s decision in Holcomb’s case could be an indicator for the other soldiers.Chinese-American community members, elected officials, documentary filmmakers and supporters of the Chen family held a news conference Monday in Manhattan’s Chinatown, where Chen was born and raised.

first_imgLe Locle, Switzerland – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineThe Zenith manufacture has been turning out exquisite watches for women, from enameled pocket watches to jewelry pendant timepieces, since 1865. It now launches two brand new wristwatches sure to seduce ladies with a penchant for complications and diamonds: The Zenith Star Open and the Zenith Star Moonphase.Zenith Star OpenEmbodying the philosophy of absolute performance, the Zenith Star Open pays tribute to the El Primero caliber. Right at first glance, this model draws the gaze to the expressive strength of its original cushion shape accentuated by an opening at 10:30 revealing the legendary heart of the mechanical automatic movement, El Primero Calibre 4062. This window onto the escapement thus shows the intricate inner workings of the movement: the high frequency is no longer an abstract principle, since one can actually keep track of the oscillations and see the watch beating.In order to avoid hiding this technical feat from view, readability is the keynote of the dial, which indicates the hours and minutes in the center, while the small seconds appear in a heart-shaped display at 9 o’clock. The central chronograph hand and the 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock further enrich this harmonious visual symphony. The mother-of-pearl or guilloché dial, depending on the model, emphasizes the desire to achieve aesthetic perfection in each and every detail, as also exemplified in the blue Roman numerals or faceted rhodiumed hands that match the intense blue of the elegant cabochon-cut sapphire adorning the crown.Governed by the unshakeable conviction that the true perfection of a work of art is perceptible in its smallest details, the movement decoration is visible through a sapphire case back.Three models are available: a steel version set with 28 VVS brilliant-cut diamonds totaling approximately 0.17 carats; a rose gold version set with 63 VVS brilliant-cut diamonds totaling approximately 0.27 carats; and a rose gold version set with 263 VVS brilliant-cut diamonds totaling approximately 1.57 carats. They are fitted with an alligator leather strap complete with a triple folding clasp.Zenith Star MoonphaseThere appears to be no stopping the mechanical automatic ultra-thin Zenith Elite 692 movement, housed in this instance within the remarkable cushion-shaped case of the Zenith Star Moonphase model. The epitome of slenderness at just 3.87 thick, it comprises 195 parts, beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and drives a display of the over 50-hour power reserve.It highlights a superb mechanical movement by endowing it with a technical and aesthetic dimension. The stage is superbly set for the hours, minutes, small seconds and moon phase appearing on the silver-toned dial. The latter marks off the hours and minutes on blue Roman numerals matching the deep blue shade of the exquisite cabochon-cut sapphire set on the crown.This superbly modern and distinctively elegant model gives pride of place to the functions: The small seconds indication at 9 o’clock, and the moon-phase display at 6 o’clock entirely dedicated to the path of the nocturnal luminary. On the back of the watch, a sapphire crystal reveals the intricate workings of a hand-decorated and engraved movement.Offering a splendid expression of horological refinement, this watch comes in a choice of steel or rose gold set with 28 VVS brilliant-cut diamonds totaling approximately 0.17 carats, fitted with an alligator leather strap complete with triple folding clasp. Whichever the version, it consistently offers its wearer the pleasure of reading off a time that is truly unique. www.zenith-watches.comlast_img read more
