WASHINGTON – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is setting his sights on the end of the month as the next target date for reaching a trade-and-tariff detente with the United States.All three countries are expected to take part in a signing ceremony for the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement during the two-day G20 summit, which gets underway Nov. 30 in Buenos Aires — although Canada has warned it will be a low-key, low-level affair if steel and aluminum tariffs are still in place.There’s still time to change that, Trudeau suggested Monday during a news conference in Paris.“I absolutely brought it up,” Trudeau said of his discussions with U.S. President Donald Trump during a dinner Friday organized by French President Emmanuel Macron.One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity in order to discuss details of a private meeting, said the two leaders had a good exchange on tariffs that included Trudeau making clear to the president the tariffs are hurting consumers and producers on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border.“The issue of steel and aluminum tariffs continues to be a concern to Canadians, like it is of concern to many American citizens and companies,” Trudeau said.“This is something that, as I’ve said before and as I related to President Trump, I hope we’re able to solve by the time we meet each other in the G20 in Argentina.”David MacNaughton, Canada’s ambassador to the U.S., said in an interview last week that some high-level talks on the tariff issue have taken place, and that he has extended an invitation to U.S. trade czar Robert Lighthizer to get formal negotiations back underway.Insiders say the U.S. has been demanding quotas be imposed on Canadian exports, something Ottawa has made clear is a non-starter.MacNaughton and Trudeau have both indicated that if a signing ceremony does take place soon, it won’t include high-level dignitaries like the prime minister or Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland if the tariffs — 25 per cent on steel and 10 per cent on aluminum — remain in place.On the Mexican side, however, there’s an expectation negotiators there are poised to agree to quotas in order to get the deal signed before Dec. 1, which is when incoming president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s new administration could inject an unwelcome element of uncertainty.Resolving the tariff issue with Mexico is the more pressing priority for the U.S., said Dan Ujczo, a trade lawyer and partner with Ohio-based Dickinson Wright.“The actual issue is to ensure that there’s nothing that’s going to stop Mexico from signing this deal before Dec. 1, and giving relief to farm country in the U.S. to Mexico’s retaliatory tariffs,” Ujczo said.“I think Canada’s an afterthought for the U.S. right now in this process.”
“The region is accessible from Pakistan as well as from Iran through all key-crossing points,” Ariana Yaftali, the spokesperson for the Office of the UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Afghanistan, told reporters in Islamabad. She cautioned, however, that the road between Kandahar and Kabul “is not recommended for evening travel.”On the education front, both girls and boys have access to school in Kandahar, according to the results of a recent survey conducted by the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), which deployed four teams to the area to assess the situation. Some 5,000 girls and 20,000 boys have enrolled in schools in the area.”Today, the demand for primary education is greater than what the current educational institutions can provide,” observed Ms. Yaftali, stressing the need to rebuild schools, train teachers, and provide educational supplies. In another development across the border, a spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said several Afghan refugees have died from fires this week in camps in Pakistan. “Alerted by those tragic events, UNHCR is taking measures to prevent further accidents,” said Melita Sunjic.According to UNHCR, two children were killed and 12 tents completely burned – with another 18 damaged – when fires broke out on 20 January. Nine days later, another fire killed three generations of one family while they were sleeping.”As a consequence of the first accident, UNHCR had increased the distance between the tents to minimize damage in case of a fire,” said the spokesperson. “After this second accident UNCHR experts are examining additional precautionary measures.” These include arranging instruction sessions on the use of kerosene burners in the camps and providing sand buckets in each tent to serve as fire extinguishers.

Alberta NDP challenge coal power buying rule, say consumers left on the hook EDMONTON – The Alberta government is going to court to challenge a regulation it says will saddle consumers with billions of dollars in losses from coal-fired power agreements.The NDP says last-minute changes to a regulation passed secretly by the Progressive Conservatives in 2000 allows power companies to hand back agreements to buy electricity from coal-fired plants if actions by the government make them more unprofitable.Deputy premier Sarah Hoffman said the government estimates these power purchasing arrangements could end up costing consumers up to $2 billion by 2020.“Today our government is taking legal action to protect everyday Albertans from having to pay for the business losses of Alberta’s biggest and most profitable power companies,” Hoffman said Monday.“We think this is not only unfair to Albertans, it is also unlawful.”Hoffman said U.S.-based Enron lobbied the Alberta Tories for the change as part of the government’s plan to deregulate the province’s electricity market. Enron declared bankruptcy in 2001 following an accounting fraud scandal.Hoffman said the Tory government at the time told Albertans that the risks of a deregulated electricity system would be shared by power companies.She said the “Enron clause” did the opposite — it set up a system where consumers bear all the risk.“Our government believes that regular Albertans should not be on the hook for secret backroom deals between companies and the previous PC government.”Hoffman said the clause was not included in more than a year of public hearings and the government took steps to hide the clause by exempting it from standard public disclosure.Enmax Corporation has used the regulation to terminate its power purchasing arrangement. Earlier this year Enmax said the government’s decision to charge companies a higher tax on carbon dioxide emissions this year and in 2017 made the agreement unprofitable.The government contends the Tories had no legal right to create such a legal loophole and is seeking a court order declaring the regulation to be void.The NDP also wants a judge to quash a decision by a government agency called the Balancing Pool to accept Enmax’s decision to hand back its agreement.Other companies that have served notice they intend to terminate such arrangements include TransCanada Corp. (TSX:TRP), Capital Power PPA Management (TSX:CPX) and the ASTC Power Partnership.On Monday, Enmax issued a news release saying they have concerns with the accuracy of information in the filing.“These legal agreements with the government have been in place and relied upon for 16 years, and were intended to be respected for a 20-year period by an industry that has invested billions of dollars in Alberta during this time,” said the release.“We are very disappointed that the government is retroactively challenging fundamental aspects that have been in place in these agreements since their inception.”Capital Power Corp. also issued a statement Monday.“We will exercise every legal avenue at our disposal to ensure that the Government of Alberta honours the terms of the PPAs,” said Capital Power president and CEO Brian Vaasjo.“We believe the legal claim is without merit, and we will look to the courts to ensure that the Government of Alberta cannot retroactively amend an arrangement for which Albertan companies paid and upon which they have been relying in good faith for 16 years.”Capital Power also called into question some of the government’s assertions.“Today’s announcement by the Government of Alberta claims that the PPA terminations will result in consumers bearing up to $2 billion in costs between now and 2020. This claim is misleading because it is incomplete. Based on available public information, the Balancing Pool can reduce its liability to an estimated $950-million by terminating the PPAs that were recently turned back to them, or to an estimated $635-million by terminating some PPAs, and retaining and managing others.”Spokesman Mark Cooper said TransCanada has always operated in a fully open and transparent manner and will defend its right to terminate the arrangements.“We properly exercised our termination rights under provisions in the Power Purchase Arrangements that were clear 16 years ago and that remain clear today,” he said in a statement.“The Government of Alberta through its regulator the AUB clarified the intent of these provisions for all parties during a fully public process back in 2000. We relied on the termination provisions in the PPAs as fundamental to the commercial decision to participate in the PPA auction and would not have participated without them.”In March, TransCanada and Capital Power both cited the increasing costs of CO2 emissions when serving notice of their intention to terminate their agreements.Nigel Bankes, chairman of Natural Resources Law at the University of Calgary, said he is surprised by how the amendment was developed and handled by the then Tory government and regulators.He wondered how officials at the time decided it was in the public interest.“This amendment is not the sort of clause you would expect to see in any ordinary commercial arrangement because it really did provide an open-ended opportunity for companies to walk away from unprofitable arrangements having taking advantage for many years of very profitable arrangements,” he said.“The transfer of risk that was going on here was just remarkable and it was just done with a sleight of hand.”The Wildrose Opposition called the government’s court action “heavy-handed.”“Today’s announcement to take private companies to court over agreements signed at the turn of the century is extremely short-sighted and will keep billions of dollars of necessary investment away from our province,” Wildrose critic Don MacIntyre said in a news release.Hoffman said lower electricity prices are why power companies are losing money.The court action is to be heard in November. by John Cotter, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 25, 2016 2:24 pm MDT Last Updated Jul 25, 2016 at 8:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email
IT’S BEEN THE most unusual of hurling championships this summer and it’s set to end in a most unusual manner: on a Saturday evening.The GAA announced to those filing out of Croke Park on Sunday that the All-Ireland SHC final would be replayed on 28 September. And yesterday, Croke Park chiefs pencilled it in for a 5pm throw-in.“It is very unusual,” agreed Rebels boss, Jimmy Barry-Murphy at the team hotel in Dublin yesterday.“I would have preferred a Sunday personally. An All-Ireland final should be on a Sunday but that is another decision that has been taken that we have no control over. These things are nothing to do with me, when a match is fixed as far as I am concerned you get on with it.“We are going for a recovery session this morning, a pool session and then we will take a break for a couple of days and regroup after the weekend and start the whole process again.”‘Unusual’ was again the adjective Barry-Murphy reached for when asked for the atmosphere amongst the Cork panel on Sunday night in the wake of the draw with Clare.“People were all in good form,” the St Finbarr’s clubman added. “There was a general feeling that we could have played better overall, that we could have got into our stride earlier. That is the main thing but it is a case of trying to regroup now and trying to find out what went wrong yesterday. But there are plenty of positives as well from our point of view, there was great passion and great spirit I thought. We hung in there there and we needed to.”Supporters of both counties may have felt that their side left a title after them. A point up in garbage time, does JBM look at it like the one that got away? “I wouldn’t say it is gone from us at all. We didn’t play well [on Sunday] in general, we were chasing the game from the start and we did not get into our stride as quickly as Clare. From that point of view, I certainly don’t think it is lost, it is there to be won the next day. There is plenty of time to regroup and that is what we are going to do,” he says.Asked if he felt wronged by the referee’s time-keeping in the dramatic finale to the contest, Barry-Murphy said: “I am not going to start carping now about that because as I said a couple of decisions went our way that could have gone the other way and I think it is bad grace now to moan about that. Referees in general tend to give a team one chance if they are a point down, don’t they, and that is what happened yesterday.The Cork boss went on: “We have to look now and see where we can strengthen, but as I said we did not play as well as we would have liked. But that is finals, they take on a life of their own. There are days when it doesn’t happen for you. It was a great game and our players played with fantastic spirit and they had to hang in there and they hung in there tough. I was very, very proud of that, I would have to say.”Originally published 07.30Daithi Regan: ‘I’ve never seen anything to match yesterday’s finale’‘Oh Holy Moses’ – Marty Morrissey’s brilliant commentary at the end yesterday

Once Upon a Time’s Finale Was Everything We Loved About an Imperfect ShowHenry Screws Everything Up Again on Once Upon a Time Stay on target This is the kind of episode I’ve been waiting for Once Upon a Time to get back to. After a couple weeks of not a whole lot going on, it finally decided it was time to get the story moving again. Particularly regarding Hook and Alice, who’ve been forced into a holding pattern in recent episodes. That’s over now. In the flashback scenes, Alice is having the saddest birthday ever, as she reenacts the tea party with stuffed animals and a single, solitary cupcake. It’s so sad; it comes as a relief when a giant breaks the tower open and offers her a way out. I like that they made the Fremont troll a character in this season. Gotta say, I wasn’t expecting that. Still not entirely sure why there is a whole road and neighborhood behind the troll instead of a wall. And a lake. Also, why it looks a lot smaller and thinner than the real one. Whatever. It’s magic!It’s not explained why the troll was able to break the curse, but hey, it gets us out of the tower. She gets caught in a cage trap, and that’s how she meets Robin. We can already see the flames of young love starting to spark. Or contempt. Honestly, it’s hard to tell sometimes. Their first point of contention: the troll. It may have helped Alice, but he’s also trampled a few towns. And Robin is determined to kill him. Alice isn’t about to let that happen though, and tags along.Her troll-defending ways get both girls in trouble when they come across a group of men who plan to hunt the thing down. Even though Robin wants to kill the troll too, she’s thrown in a jail cell as well for even associating with Alice. It gives the pair some time to bond and understand each other, though. The show took its time with this scene, letting their friendship and admiration build naturally. It was really sweet and well executed. Then Robin broke out with a hairpin, leaving Alice behind. Once again though, Alice is right behind her. She had a second hairpin. And once again, Alice’s troll-loving ways get her and Robin in trouble again. This time, though, Robin is more sympathetic. She realizes that the man running the troll hunt is a bully, and stands up to him.(Photo via ABC)Even so, they’re outnumbered. As the girls are surrounded by scary dudes wielding swords, Alice wishes for an escape. And she gets one, in the form of a familiar yellow Volkswagen Beetle. Yay! See, it turns out that Alice has some magic in her. It was her who summoned the troll just by wishing for an escape. She also summoned the Beetle, which the troll picks up and holds just like he does in the real life statue. As a native Seattle kid, I love how this episode went all in on inventing some lore for one of my favorite sculptures in the city. I grew up climbing on that thing, and seeing Alice have a deep, personal connection to it warms my grey, overcast heart. The whole magic wishing thing… Well, on its own, it comes out of nowhere. Like the worst uses of magic on this show, it arrives as a deus ex machina and is never explained. It does pay off in a satisfying way for the modern world, though.In the present, things are finally moving along at a decent pace. Lucy and Regina are in full Henry-style operation mode, and Regina even breaks out the walkie-talkies for old time’s sake. Lucy doesn’t even know what they are. She suggests texting instead. Kids these days, right? Their plan involves Dr. Facilier. His magic just might be able to save Henry. They just need to know whose side he’s on first. With a lunch date and a secret piece of tape, Regina distracts Facilier while Lucy performs a little breaking and entering. Unfortunately, Zelena shows up and breaks up the date. Facilier gives the two sisters some space, which is bad news for Lucy. She’s still in his apartment, and worse, she’s not picking up her phone.(Photo via ABC)The show lets this scene build to a great, tense moment when Lucy gets the messages just in time to hide and escape. Unfortunately, she leaves her hat behind, and Facilier figures out what’s really been going on. This storyline served only to set up another conflict to play out in the episodes to come. Facilier readily admits to Regina what he wants. He’s after the Dark One’s dagger. Regina’s not about to let that happen, but she also can’t deny that she does have romantic feelings for Facilier. He tells her to take a page from what she learned in Storybrooke: Find a way to have it all. So that’s where her journey is going for the next few episodes. This mini-arc was fun enough, but it didn’t push the story forward like I was hoping. Instead, the real meat of the episode was happening elsewhere in Hyperion Heights.Ivy is trying to make things right with everybody, and it leads to a really good scene. Henry convinces Ivy to make amends with her sister, suggesting a genuine, sincere apology. She surprises Henry and all of us by giving him one as well. Ivy really is changing. By the end of this season, she might end up being the hero. Or at least one of many. We don’t get to see her journey to find Anastasia, though. Instead, Henry’s night is interrupted once more by another visitor. That’s where the episode really gets going. Rogers shows up looking for a place to stash Tilly away while he tries to prove her innocence. Henry agrees to help, and they leave her there while they try to find an alibi for her.Rose Reynolds and Tiera Skovbye (Photo via ABC)She has about as much patience as any fantasy adventure protagonist and leaves the safe house immediately. There is a nice moment where she’s inexplicably drawn to a book about Robin Hood. D’awwww. But she remembers where she must have gone, and heads out on her own to see if anyone remembers seeing her. The problem is, nobody remembers her at all. Even people who usually do, like the guy at the deli counter who makes her a marmalade sandwich every day. For some reason, she may as well be invisible. I say, magic is afoot! Henry and Rogers catch up to her when she finds evidence that she thinks may exonerate her. Her missing backpack is in a dumpster by the grocery story. Unfortunately, inside someone has planted strands of hair that are probably from the murder victims. Someone really wants Tilly out of the way.We don’t find out exactly who or how in this episode. That will probably come later. But this is the point where the flashback and modern scenes line up for a neat little conclusion. I still love it every time this show can pull that trick off. It’s an indication that it managed to pull off two engaging stories and bring them both to a satisfying conclusion. Once Upon a Time isn’t always able to accomplish that but when it does, it’s very good. Seemingly out of hope, Tilly runs to the troll to say goodbye. For some reason, she’s always felt like it was looking after her. As she says goodbye, she runs into Alice, who’s finally returned to face her mother. The two meet for the second time, and that connection is still there. And Robin carries around an Alice in Wonderland book with her. That’s adorable.Rose Reynolds and Tiera Skovbye (Photo via ABC)Once again, the troll saves Alice/Tilly when she needs it the most. Henry and Rogers show up just as Alice remembers that she was at the troll at the time of the murder. And as luck would have it, the city had recently installed a security camera in the troll’s eye. OK, that’s a little on the nose even for Seattle. And not gonna lie, the idea that the city would turn a piece of community art that’s brought me and many other Seattlites so much joy over the years into a tool of the surveillance state is a little offensive to me. I love the idea of building a whole fantasy lore around it, but don’t infect it with how much the real world sucks. Oh well, it serves the story’s purpose at least. It clearly shows that Alice was at the troll at the time the woman was murdered in the hospital. She’s off the hook. And Rogers offers her a place to stay with him. Father and daughter are back together, and that makes me happy at least. It was a sweet ending to an exciting, story-packed entry of Once Upon a Time. The show could use more like this.

Portland-Vancouver area small business owners hired more people in 2011 than the year before, but paid them less, according to data released Tuesday, and hiring should continue to climb in 2012, with half of all small business owners planning to add jobs in the year ahead.Portland metro area small businesses did more for job creation and wages than their peers in the rest of the country, SurePayroll’s Small Business Scorecard report found. In the Portland-Vancouver area, small business hiring barely budged last year, climbing just 0.1 percent, but nationwide small businesses actually reported a 3.2 percent drop in hiring. Nationwide, small business owners reported that employee paychecks were down 0.8 percent last year, essentially tied with the 0.7 percent paycheck decline in the Portland-Vancouver area.Manpower Inc. also recently said that the employment outlook in the Portland-Vancouver metro area is improving as more employers look to add jobs — though its estimates of businesses of all sizes suggest that only 16 percent of employers plan to increase staff levels in the first three months of the new year.Chris Crongeyer, branch manager for Manpower in Vancouver, warned that any metro area forecast should be taken with a grain of salt in Clark County.“It’s very typical of Southwest Washington to be the last to bounce back when it comes to any increase in staffing needs,” he said.

Kolkata: A notorious criminal identified as Rammurty, alias Ramua, has been shot dead by some miscreants on Sunday night at Amarabati in Sodepur.According to locals, about five to six miscreants carrying firearms had entered Ramua’s flat on Sunday night around 1 am. He had been living there for the last few months. It is alleged that the miscreants held Ramua’s son on Gunpoint after he opened the door. When Ramua was about to make some move, the miscreants fired multiple rounds of bullet aiming Ramua from point blank range. As soon as he fell on the ground, the miscreants fled the scene.

He was immediately rushed to Panihati State General Hospital where the doctors declared him brought dead. It is also alleged that Ramua tried to fire with his 9 mm pistol before he was shot. However, one of the miscreants managed to snatch away the pistol from him. Ramua was a notorious criminal in the Central Howrah area. He was accused in around 30 cases of murder, extortion, illegal firearms in Howrah. He was arrested on several occasions. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedAccording to local sources, in the mid 90’s Ramua had managed to spread terror in the Shibpur area. He used to torture his victims before killing them. A few years ago, Ramua had killed a youth in Howrah and severed his head, hands and legs. Later, he kicked the head as a football. He was arrested and put in judicial custody. During sometime in November, 2018, Ramua was granted bail and was given a condition to not enter Howrah under any circumstances without court’s permission. The sleuths suspect that Ramua was trying to leave behind his past and trying to restore normalcy in life. As a result, his gang members might have killed him. It is also suspected that Ramua was killed by the members of his rival gang from Howrah. Police are almost sure that the miscreants hailed from Howrah and were known to Ramua. Though police are focusing on Ramua’s gang members and the rival gang members, his wife and family members are also under the scanner. “A murder case has been initiated and a probe is on to nab the culprits,” said Ananda Roy, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone-II), Barrackpore Police. The sleuths also suspect that Ramua had taken the flat on rent in the Amarabati area and the flat owner did not submit any intimation regarding his tenancy to the police. It is suspected that Ramua was trying to hide as he might have suspected a sudden attack on him and thus had kept an illegal pistol with him.

Nepotism, excessive salaries and general waste are pervasive in the Cyprus Sports Organization (KOA), auditor-general Odysseas Michaelides said on Thursday.Presenting to lawmakers his report on KOA for fiscal year 2016, Michaelides painted a picture of unaccountability and a devil-may-care attitude within the organisation.MPs heard that the average wage at KOA stands at €56,500 a year.In its report, the audit office documented familial relations between athletes who receive grants and directors on the boards of sports federations – prompting MPs to demand a list of board directors serving in all federations.In one instance, an early retirement scheme was drafted for the benefit of a single person. In another, an individual was found to be holding a permanent job at KOA despite being on secondment there from the ministry of education – effectively having two positions in the public sector.Another indication of the lack of accountability were procurements of goods and services without going through a tenders process.For example, lawyers were offered work based on no-bid contracts. In addition, it turned out that the lawyers were often contracted to carry out clerical work which could have been done by regular KOA staff.And there were cases where employees were found to be unqualified for their respective positions.“Again and again, the same issues have been highlighted since 2001 and one has to wonder why nothing is being done to correct the situation,” said Akel MP Irini Charalambidou.What astounded parliamentarians was the reveal that KOA has no leverage over the various sports federations it is responsible for.That is because KOA lacks the authority to withhold grants to a federation whenever the body is suspected of money wasting or circumspect practices.To deal with this weakness, a ‘code of good governance’ is to be enforced sometime over the next few months.Under the code, sports federations failing to comply with recommendations or guidance from KOA would have their grants withheld until they comply.The auditor-general also pointed out that a number of sports venues are operating without the required permits from KOA.MPs meanwhile were annoyed that the secretary of the education ministry, who had been summoned to the session of the House watchdog committee, did not show up.The education ministry is responsible for sports.
