Nova Scotia is another step closer to having a new strategy that will protect the coastline, while supporting sustainable coastal development. The draft of the province’s first coastal strategy was released for public review and feedback today, Oct. 13. “The coast is where Nova Scotians live, work and play, and it is one of our greatest natural assets,” said Fisheries and Aquaculture Minister Sterling Belliveau. “Taking care of our coastal areas and resources is critical to the long-term sustainability of our province and will contribute to the creation of meaningful and durable jobs in our rural communities.” The draft strategy focuses on seven issues that are crucial to effective coastal management:last_img read more

first_img Facebook VANCOUVER—Award-winning novelist Nancy Richler has died in Vancouver at the age of 60 following a long battle with cancer.HarperCollins Canada said in a news release that Richler died Thursday in hospital.The Montreal-born author spent most of her adult life in British Columbia, where she wrote short fiction and novels. Advertisement Advertisement Richler’s short stories were published in several American and Canadian literary journals.She also wrote three novels, the most recent being The Imposter Bride, which was a finalist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize in 2012.HarperCollins said the jury described the book as a “wonderfully nuanced work of fiction by a master of the craft.”Richler’s agent, Dean Cooke, said he will never forget the moment he called her to tell her she’d been shortlisted for the prize.“She was washing her floor and acknowledged the call but told me she really had to get back to the cleaning. It was only later that she fully understood the import of that moment,” he said in a statement.“Nancy’s work was crucial to the development and success of my agency in the early years, but more importantly, I valued her friendship beyond measure. She was a beautiful writer and a more beautiful person.”Richler won the 2003 Canadian Jewish Book Award for Fiction for her book Your Mouth Is Lovely, and the 1997 Arthur Ellis Award for the crime novel Throwaway Angels.She is survived by her partner Vicki Trerise, her sister, and a brother. Iris Tupholme, senior vice-president and executive publisher at HarperCollins, said Richler was an elegant writer whose work resonated with readers in Canada and abroad.“She had an extraordinary ability to see into the human heart to create complex characters who survived war, displacement and loss but who also cherished beauty and kindness and searched for happiness,” Tupholme said in a statement.

first_img(Mi’kmaq chiefs gather for Nova Scotia Treaty Day. Photo: Trina Roache/APTN) Trina RoacheAPTN National NewsA legal brief submitted on behalf of the province of Nova Scotia denies treaty rights and labels the Mi’kmaq as conquered peoples.“To suggest that we are ‘conquered’ is a racist taunt,” wrote Millbrook Chief Bob Gloade in a media release. “At its worst, it has been used against Indigenous Canadians to perpetuate or justify a state of inferior legal, social or socio-economic conditions.”The brief is part of a court case centred on consultation with the Sipekne’Katik Band over a natural gas storage project. The band asked for a judicial review of the provincial permits that approved the Alton Gas project.But a court case about whether the Crown meaningfully consulted with one band over a particular project, has brought up what many are calling offensive arguments about treaty rights that extend to all Mi’kmaq in Nova Scotia.Alex Cameron, legal counsel for the province’s Department of Justice spent several pages of the submission arguing that the Treaty of 1752 is void, as it was “terminated by subsequent hostilities.” Cameron goes on to point out that the Supreme Court of Canada “wrongly decided” the Marshall Decision, which upheld the Mi’kmaq Treaty right to hunt, fish and gather.“Is this the best the Crown can offer? His position is a betrayal of the province’s commitment to reconciliation,” said Gloade.Cheryl Maloney, a former band councillor for Sipekne’Katik, led the fight against Alton Gas and sat in court, listening to Cameron’s arguments.“I think it’s dishonourable not only to Aboriginal people,” said Maloney, “but it’s a real dishonour to Nova Scotians when we’re in an era of trying to reconcile our past.”Every October 1, for 30 years, the Mi’kmaq have gathered with provincial leaders in Halifax to celebrate and honour the Treaty of 1752.Walking out of the courtroom on the Alton Gas case, however, Maloney was left wondering if the province even thinks the treaty exists.“We now know what kind of province, what kind of government we’re dealing with,” she said. “They showed their true colours.”In 2009 Cameron wrote a book, Power without Law, which was highly critical of the Marshall decision. At the time, the Nova Scotia chiefs asked the province to prohibit Cameron from working on cases tied to Mi’kmaq issues. That didn’t happen.Mi’kmaq lawyer Naiomi Metallic said Cameron is “clearly biased. He has a very particular agenda and this is the question I wonder; is it more him that’s driving this bus?”She pointed out that there had to be oversight on a document filed in a court of law on behalf of the attorney general of Nova Scotia. And that has her asking what it says about the province and what that might mean for relations with the Mi’kmaq.“Why is he making an argument about Mi’kmaq being conquered?” she asks. “No one is going to accept that and it just really shatters the relationship or has the potential to.”The Nova Scotia Chiefs have been at the negotiating table since 2002, working out how to implement the treaties in a modern context.Eric Zscheile is a lawyer for the Assembly of Nova Scotia Chief’s negotiating body, Mi’kmaq Rights Initiative, or as it’s called in Mi’kmaq, Kwilmu’kw Maw-klusuaqn. He was also the legal counsel for the Mi’kmaq when Donald Marshall was charged with catching and selling eels; the case that was victorious at the Supreme Court in 1999.Hearing Cameron’s arguments around treaty rights in 2016, Zscheile shakes his head.“How do you react to that? And do you get pulled down the rabbit hole of getting involved in that dynamic again? I argued with all of those things decades ago,” said Zscheile. “As far I’m concerned the Supreme Court has already answered it.”He said the legal argument seems at odds with the political point of view he sees at the negotiation and tripartite tables.“Unlike what Alex Cameron says, we have two governments that are willing to sit down and say yes, we need to recognize those treaties, we need to recognize them as valid. We need to recognize them as legal and constitutional,” said Zscheile.And the premier of Nova Scotia agrees.On Thursday, Stephen McNeil sat down for an interview with APTN wanting to clarify the government position.“Mi’kmaq have traditional rights in this province, determined by treaties and we have an obligation and a duty to consult,” said McNeil.The premier, who is also minister for Aboriginal Affairs, said he had not read the brief before it was presented in court, and then it was too late to take it back.McNeil called the arguments questioning the validity of treaty rights “unacceptable” and said he understands the angry reaction from Mi’kmaq.“I’m not happy, not just as the minister, but as the premier that that position was put forward in the court,” said McNeil.“Disappointed would be a huge understatement. To say that I was furious would probably be more accurate.”The premier is putting distance between Cameron’s take on the treaties and his own.But he acknowledges, “I’m going to wear this. We as a government are wearing this. No matter who put it forward, somebody in government should’ve been signing off on this.”McNeil is already looking into how that happened. In the meantime, he’s doing damage control.“My hope is that the chiefs and the Mi’kmaq community will understand it is not a reflection of who I am, and who our government is,” said McNeil.The premier said he has not read Cameron’s book. He can’t say whether Alex Cameron will be removed from cases involving the Mi’kmaq.“I take this issue very seriously and we will be looking into it to see what is the proper course of correction,” he said.troache@aptn.calast_img read more

Couche-Tard Canadian operations get boost in fourth-quarter from Esso stores MONTREAL – Alimentation Couche-Tard capped its fiscal year with a strong fourth quarter as its Canadian operations got a boost from the full impact of its acquisition of Esso convenience stores, which helped to offset industry struggles in appealing to Hispanic and low-income Americans.The Quebec-based convenience store and gas bar operator, whose banners include Mac’s and Circle K, said its Canadian sales increased by 81 per cent from a year ago while gross profit was up 54 per cent.Couche-Tard purchased 278 Esso-brand retail gas stations in Ontario and Quebec from Imperial Oil Canada for $1.7 billion. The deal closed in October but the full impact from the acquisition was realized in the company’s fourth quarter, ended April 30.Canada accounted for 14 per cent of Couche-Tard’s global sales in the quarter, up from 10 per cent a year earlier.Couche-Tard followed the Esso deal by adding nearly 1,300 CST Brands stores in Canada and the U.S. in a deal that closed June 28 after the company agreed to sell about 420 locations to satisfy Competition Bureau requirements.It also acquired 53 Cracker Barrel sites in Louisiana in May and agreed this week to buy a 522-store network in the U.S. Midwest run by Holiday Stationstores in a deal valued at US$1.5 billion to US$2 billion, according to analysts.Store traffic in the U.S. grew in the spring quarter but was not as robust as it has been in the past because the improving economy, which has helped the stock market, has not trickled down to two key convenience store shoppers, Couche-Tard CEO Brian Hannasch told investors during a conference call.“The lower-income consumer and the Hispanic consumer is where we’ve, as an industry, seen a drop in traffic,” he said.“On the Hispanic side, I’m not sure if that’s political uncertainty related to the election or not, but nonetheless our focus is on, again surgical promotional activity that attract that consumer.”Same-site fuel and merchandise sales grew in the U.S. at half the pace of last year and declined in Canada due to ongoing economic challenges in Western Canada.“Canada has been soft in traffic led by the western half of the country, particularly Alberta, which has been exposed to the oil industry softness there,” Hannasch said.Overall, the company earned US$277.6-million for its fourth quarter as total revenue soared 30.1 per cent from last year to US$9.6 billion.After excluding the impact of foreign exchange and various expense items, the company earned 52 cents per share in the 13-week quarter — up 36.8 per cent from last year, which had only 12 weeks.Analysts had estimated US$9.4 billion of revenue and 46 cents per share of adjusted earnings, according to data from Thomson Reuters.Couche-Tard is in the process of rebranding its stores to Circle K outside of Quebec. More than 1,300 stores in North America and 1,200 locations in Europe have changed banners so far.For the full year, the company earned US$1.21 billion on US$37.9 billion of revenues, compared to US$1.19 billion on US$34.1 billion a year earlier.Couche-Tard’s shares (TSX:ATD.B) closed at $62.40 in Wednesday trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange, up $2.25 or 3.7 per cent. by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 12, 2017 7:29 am MDT Last Updated Jul 12, 2017 at 3:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

first_imgDeadline broke that Orange Is The New Black guard Michael Chernus had joined the Spider-Man: Homecoming cast as Phineas Mason, also known as The Tinkerer. A tech-based Vulture and a Spider-Man villain that is good with technology sounds like quite the pair of villains for Peter to take on as Spider-Man while navigating the stresses of also being a high school student.Michael ChernusIn the most controversial report from Spider-Man: Homecoming, The Wrap made a bold claim that Zendaya, who had been cast early on as a character named Michelle (who some thought was a younger version of the Amazing Spider-Man comic book character Michelle Gonzales) is actually playing Mary Jane Watson. She would be the third actress cast to portray the character on screen, after Kirsten Dunst and Shailene Woodley (although Woodley was cut from Amazing Spider-Man 2 entirely). This has ruffled some feathers because Mary Jane Watson from the comics is a white skinned redhead and Zendaya is not.James Gunn, director of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. Tweeted out the news while denying having any official knowledge about if the report was true. The response his tweets received prompted him to write a Facebook post that summed up his opinion on the controversy:I got a thousand or so responses to my tweet. Most of them were positive. Some folks disagreed – they thought the character should look like what she looks like in the comics – but were thoughtful. And a handful were flat out racist.I can’t respond to the racists – I’m not ever going to change their minds. But for the thoughtful majority of you out there:For me, if a character’s primary attribute – the thing that makes them iconic – is the color of their skin, or their hair color, frankly, that character is shallow and sucks. That may be the most controversial Spider-Man: Homecoming news, but the title of craziest Spider-Man: Homecoming rumor goes to a leaked call sheet that appeared on Twitter before quickly being deleted. There were, of course, multiple screen shots of the tweet that began to be circulated soon after and now it’s everywhere. Probably because the contents are too good to be true for a Spider-Man fan.The alleged Spider-Man call sheet.Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, Laura Harrier as Liz Allen, and Tony Revolori as Flash were all confirmed by Jon Watts at Comic-Con this year. Angourie Rice (The Nice Guys) as Betty “Brandt” would be news, as the comic character Betty Brant was an early love interest for Peter Parker in the comics, but the additional “d” in the character’s last name makes this supposed call sheet suspicious.What also makes it suspicious is how full of other Spider-Man easter eggs it is. Bokeem Woodbine (Fargo, season 2) appearing as Spider-Man villain the Shocker would mean a third villain would be appearing in this movie. Cuban American actress Selenis Leyva is “Ms. Warren,” and in the Spider-Man Clone Saga of the comic books, a villain called The Jackyl was once Miles Warren, scientist. Could this be a character that returns in the MCU?Kenneth Choi played a character named Morita in Captain America: The First Avenger. Obviously this is supposed to be a descendant of his who became a high school principal in Queens. Tunde Adebimpe is listed as “Mr. Cobwell,” the name of the teacher who introduces Peter Parker to The Tinkerer in the comics.It feels like this “call sheet” is just giving us exactly what we want…except that Zendaya is listed as “Michelle” and not Mary Jane. This could be because the character is so super secret according to Sony that everywhere “Mary Jane” should appear the word “Michelle” is taking its place, even on call sheets which could theoretically leak like this.Everything after Betty “Brandt” seems suspect, not that Bokeem Woodbine wouldn’t make a great Shocker (he would!).Finally, debuting on Instagram was what appears to be the first look at the poster for Spider-Man: Homecoming. It was at a Las Vegas marketing expo, so it could be legit, and – dang – still gotta love that suit.First Spider-Man: Homecoming poster. Can you feel that we are less than a year away from the third cinematic reboot of a Spider-Man franchise? Get hype, because this time just might be the charm if the character’s introduction in this year’s Captain America: Civil War is anything to go by. After a little bit of fan fare at this year’s Comic-Con, the production has been officially silent on the details of the film. Instead, we have a bevy of rumors, some of which have already caused some strife in the Spider-Fandom.First, the solid facts recapped:Director Jon Watts (Cop Car) is spinning off Tom Holland’s younger version of Peter Parker into Spider-Man: Homecoming just next year.The movie will be a co-production with Marvel Studios and Sony, who still owns the Spider-Man property.The collaboration means that Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark will make a cameo appearance in the film.Recent revelations at San Diego Comic-Con have revealed that The Vulture is indeed Spider-Man: Homecoming’s villain, and we suspect he’ll be played by Michael Keaton.The concept art that was revealed shows this Vulture is a tech-based villain and his face isn’t visible.last_img read more

first_imgTravis Bubenik/Houston Public MediaTexas Coastal Exchange says preserving coastal marshland could be key to battling climate change.Texas pumps more carbon emissions into the atmosphere than any other state, according to the Energy Information Administration. But a tiny non-profit on the Texas Gulf Coast says private landowners could be making money off those emissions, while helping to offset them.The group says that the concept of a “market” for carbon — where carbon-producing businesses or individuals would pay landowners to preserve coastal marshes — is a promising business solution in the fight against climate change. Share Between the Green New Deal, proposals for a national “carbon tax” and so-called “clean” coal plants, there’s no shortage of ideas out there for how to curb carbon emissions. But environmental lawyer Jim Blackburn said he’s got the Texas answer. “So much of the conversation at the national level is punitive,” Blackburn said. “It’s negative about carbon, period, and it turns a lot of people in Texas and, I would say, the central United States, off.”Blackburn recently made his pitch at a coastal nature preserve near the city of Galveston, where the patchy islands of dark green marsh grass open up into a nearby bay, and the horizon is filled with vacation homes and oil refineries.Blackburn’s system, the Texas Coastal Exchange, allows businesses and people to offset their carbon emissions by paying landowners to keep marshes in their natural state.Why marshes? “They basically take carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and put it into the root system and vegetation that you see in front of us out here in the marsh and, over time, that builds up in the soil,” Blackburn said. “That’s just what they do.”The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says there are more than 380,000 acres of saltwater marsh in Texas. According to Anna Armitage, a marine biologist at Texas A&M University at Galveston, studies have shown marshes are better at sucking up carbon on a per-area basis than forests.“People think about tropical forests as storing lots of carbon because they have huge trees, and that’s true, but they don’t have as much carbon below-ground, which is really where it’s stored for decades,” she said.Azure Bevington, a coastal ecologist working as a science consultant for the project, called the ability of coastal lands to suck carbon out of the air a “service.” “These types of wetlands don’t have an income stream. You conserve them because you want to conserve the services,” she said.Bevington says that a “marketplace” like Texas Coastal Exchange’s gives landowners a financial incentive to keep marshland natural. The plan is premised on the idea that people are willing to pay for their impact on the planet.A local sustainability-minded firm, Kirksey Architecture, was the first to buy into the exchange. “We’re in the business of developing and designing buildings. That, in and of itself, is going to create a certain, you know, carbon offput,” said Wes Good, the company’s president.Kirksey is paying a local conservation group, the Galveston Bay Foundation, about $14,000 for a year to preserve roughly 200 acres of marsh the foundation already owns. The entities estimate that offsets about a year’s worth of Kirksey’s carbon footprint. Texas Coastal Exchange gets a cut of the money, about 15 percent, for facilitating the deal.The exchange’s first carbon offset deal is informal — there’s no contract involved and the groups are working together to promote the idea. One of the architecture firm’s executives even sits on the exchange board. There is a risk that programs like these can allow a person or company to feel better about their carbon emissions, without actually trying to lower them. “You know, say a refinery just pays for an offset rather than reducing its own pollution,” said Luke Metzger, head of the advocacy group Environment Texas. “We need the markets, but we also need to make sure those major local emitters also are doing as much as they can to reduce pollution on-site.”Metzger said the exchange won’t be able to replace the many other climate solutions that scientists say are needed to reach net zero emissions by about 2050, a target that, if achieved, could avoid the worst impacts of climate change.

first_imgUPDATE: Pre-orders for the PlayStation 4 Pro are now available at Amazon.ORIGINAL STORY: Shortly after Microsoft revealed its plans to release iterative editions of the Xbox One, leaks suggested that Sony was working on an upgraded version of the PlayStation 4. The existence of the PS4 Neo was announced by Sony a few days before this year’s E3, though that reveal didn’t provide much information beyond what was already leaked. Things have been quiet on the PS4 Neo front since then, but if a recent rumor is true, it appears we may learn more about Sony’s upcoming console as early as next month.A French site is reporting that Sony will hold an event in New York City on September 7 that is centered around the PS4 Neo. If you recall, the reveal event for the PlayStation 4 also happened in The Big Apple in February of 2013. This date would be several days before the start of this year’s Tokyo Game Show which kicks off on September 15. As we reported in June, Sony will be showing the PS4 Neo at this event along with a PS4 slim. Having these two announcements back to back for both the North American and Asian markets would certainly be a smart move by Sony.Rumors have previously suggested that the PS4 Neo would be released as early as October to coincide with the launch of the PlayStation VR — a peripheral that will be helped by the extra horsepower of the PS4 Neo. Yet another rumor says that the PS4 Neo will be released in Spring of 2017.Right now, we can’t say for sure when the console will actually launch. Hopefully, this reveal event, if true, will provide answers. If this is just a rumor, then we still have TGS to fall back on. Either way, we’ll know more about the PS4 Neo in September.last_img read more
