Discount mulberry large bag Outlet Critics of Kinder Morgan pipeline shout down Trudeau at Nanaimo townhall

NANAIMO (NEWS 1130) Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke over jeers of Friday at a rowdy town hall meeting in Nanaimo, where he spent a large part of the two hour gathering defending his government decision to support the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline through the province.

Trudeau said the pipeline is a key component of the federal government approach to cutting greenhouse gas emissions, which means Ottawa had to get a national agreement on carbon pricing that will allow Canada to meet its international commitments on climate change.

in order to do that, part of moving forward is approving the Kinder Morgan pipeline, which will be able to get our resources responsibly and safely to new markets across the Pacific, he said, adding the government ocean protection plan will better protect the coastline from oil spills at the same time. town hall was often raucous.

The prime minister faced a mix of cheers and boos on his arrival. When he spoke about the pipeline, he was repeatedly interrupted, causing him to show his frustration at one point by exclaiming: on! Come on! Really? you can respect the people in this room, you need to leave, he said before asking the police to remove those who were disrupting the event.

Police physically removed a man and two women as someone else shouted: on you Trudeau. spoke to an overflow crowd estimated by officials at 1,700 people in the gymnasium at Vancouver Island University, while dozens of protesters carried anti pipeline placards outside. One man held up a sign throughout the town hall that read: leaders don build pipelines. So many people wanted to attend the event that organizers were shifting seating in the gym at the last minute to make room.

While the many questions centred on the pipeline issue, Trudeau ended up fielding about 20 questions, ranging from the opioid crisis to fish farm policy to how Canadian children are taught about residential schools in classrooms.

She said she opposes the pipeline, but she was not happy about the reception Trudeau received.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley has called that an unconstitutional attempt to get around federal approval of the Kinder Morgan project, which would triple the capacity of the pipeline and increase the number of tankers in Georgia Strait from five to 34 per month.

On Friday, he said the provincial government move was not intended to be provocative.

are not putting in place regulations today, we are not putting in regulations at the end of the month. We are putting in place a consultation and an intentions paper so that the public has an understanding of the potential impact of a catastrophic spill within British Columbia. the town hall below

Discount mulberry clutch bag sale Outlet Crepes O Mania food kiosk owner hits out at Westgate for lack of running water

mulberry clutch black Crepes O Mania food kiosk owner hits out at Westgate for lack of running water

Crepes O Mania owner Akim Akkouche said he argued with Westgate management when the kiosk plan he was given last year showed it would not have a mains water supply.

The mobile business has been trading in the city both in University Parks and Broad Street for 10 years and has never had lower than a four star rating.

But Oxford City Council health inspectors had no choice but to give a two star rating in November when they found the kiosk in the 440m centre had no hot water sinks or running water, and was not connected to mains drainage system.

“If it was something we didn’t do properly then I would say ‘fair enough that’s my fault,’ but the kiosk plan was agreed by the Westgate and without hot water.

“They said it wasn’t an obligation,

I said it was, we argued about it, but I should have known better to be honest.”

The firm were provided with a store room moving in on the day of the inspection as a food preparation.

But the owner revealed that he paid for a special system used to heat water on campsites.

Officers were concerned the storage room had no facilities for cleaning or washing food but this has since been rectified.

He said: “Everything has been done now we have water the same officer came back and was extremely happy with what she saw.

“We are being re marked in a few weeks and we should get a four or a five.”

Oxford City Council’s environmental health officers gave the business a low score and highlighted the lack of running water.

They said: “There was no wash hand basin provided for food handlers working in the kiosk you must provide a wash hand basin with adequate supplies of hot and cold water,

or appropriately mixed running water.

“The kiosk was not connected to the mains drainage system arrangements must be in place throughout the day for the storage and removal of waste water to prevent likelihood of contamination.”

On the opening day of the centre on October 24 Mr Akkouche told the Oxford Mail the kiosk fitting expected to take five days had to be completed in 36 hours after contractors didn’t turn up until Sunday afternoon.

Gov. Army Corps of Engineers to lend financial and technical assistance to help protect communities along the Lake Ontarioshorelinefrom flooding.

In a letter to dated Feb. 3, Cuomo askedLt. Colonel Adam Czekanski, commander of the ACE Buffalo district office, to implement emergency protections for at risk communities through ACE’s Advanced Measures program.

Cuomo submitted a list of 90 “at risk” communities, including many along Lake Erie and the St. Lawrence River, as well as Lake Ontario shoreline areas. Many of these regions, includingparts of Olcott, Wilson and Somerset, experienced flooding and erosion as a result of last year’s high water levels.

“With ongoing monitoring of water levels indicating there is a serious threat for renewed coastal flooding in 2018, this issue demands focused attention and support from the federal government,” Cuomo wrote in his letter. “New Yorkers cannot be left to suffer another year of damaging floods with no additional protection.”

Cuomoadded that he has directed the state Department of Environmental Conservation and Division of Homeland Security to develop strategies for lake level regulators to more effectively manage high water levels to protect shoreline communities.

Discount mulberry across body bag Outlet Creston News Advertiser

There have been many bonified news stories in the past several months that have been picked up by newspapers, radio stations and television stations throughout the state (and the surrounding states for that matter) that have never been mentioned in the Creston News Advertiser. Why are we paying such astronomical rates to have a local newspaper if they refuse to report the local news? Everyone knows there have been many news outlets that have continued to cover the saga of the events that happened at the country club, and the subsequent stories. There are many sporting events that you have to subscribe to the Omaho World Herald to get converage of. These are just a few examples. Why are we still blessed with a local newspaper when so many others are folding due to the economy? Why do we continue to subscribe when we are clearly dissatisfied with the paper?? Clearly, their readership has declined, so they just raise the price and we gladly pay. I for one, am not going to gladly pay anymore!! I want to do business with local business men and women, and I wan to support the people in my small town, but I’m having a hard time getting behind this business. Is it too much to ask that they cover at least the stories that radio stations and tv stations across the country deem to be important enough for their lead stories, and newspapers all around us consider to be front page news?Well, there are lots of reasons to bother. If CNA disappears we won’t have any local news at all. It may not be the best newspaper in the world; but it is what we have. And it is useful for things like death notices, births, local events.

And another thing is that all media gets some things wrong. Small town newspapers can not attract the best reporters you know.

Instead of complaining, has anyone thought of trying to offer constructive criticism or suggestions? Print newspapers are an endangered species. We need to support them. Not further their demise.

Yes, I have written many letters to the editor, and had personal conversations with Stephanie Finley. She doesn’t really seem interested in constructive criticism. I want to support my local newspaper, but when I have to look to the World Herald or the Register to get written information, I find it difficult at best. KSIB seems to be the best outlet for local news, and the Reicks are definately interested in the community.

Stephanie Finley does not like criticizm constructive or otherwise. Her views are the word of God, even when she trips all over herself, which she has done. I’m surprised she is still there. KSIB is the better source for the news in this area.

I know that some have stopped renewing thier suscriptions.

I have noticed over the last week that their front page has contained some brief articles about national news stories. I find it annoying when they run these AP (or other newswire) articles. I think they do it to fill space. I do not need them to report on yesterday’s national news. I have already heard most of that because I monitor several on line big city newspapers and watch the local TV news CNN.

What I really want from the CNA IS local news. And some days are slow news days. But, I also know from past conversation with Stephani that they do not always hear about what is going on around town. I know that reporters are supposed to FIND the news. But all news media rely on tips from readers/viewers for story leads.

I do not know what the answer is to this issue. What I do know is that our local businesses depend upon advertising in the newspaper. Citizens rely upon the information about events, resources and opportunities. When a town of this size loses its local newspaper, it is only a matter of time before the community declines even further economically.

Stephani’s education is not in journalism. So that may be a part of the problem. Has anyone talked to the Publisher, Rich Paulson about their concerns?

I am just concerned with Creston not slipping further into the abyss. The local newspaper is the life blood of small communities.

So Stephanie is not qualified to run the newspaper. She was originally hired to report on area arts events, if I recall. That is indeed her area of expertise. I do want local news,

but I want it to be newsworthy. I want to know what is going on in the area schools and businesses, but I don’t really think that is being addressed properly. I understand your concerns, but I dedicate almost all of my advertising budget to KSIB, because the results are MUCH better. KSIB is responsible for several newscasts during the day, and they seem to find enough items to fill their time, so why can’t the Advertiser? I am not really complaining about the LIppold’s being in the paper, I just don’t think that it was appropriate for it to be 2/3’s of the front page. There are many opportunities around town for articles, and I would even think that features on the area businesses would be interesting. That might spur interest and get people to shop in the area.

I hear what you are saying and agree. But whatever your buiness is, if you are spending most of your advertising budget on KSIB you are probably missing me as a consumer. I do not listen to KSIB. In fact the only radio I do listen to is NPR. I do not like their (KSIB)music at all. You are right that they do a better job of reporting the news: arrests and big news items (I do listen for school closings in the winter).

Don’t get me wrong. I support KSIB too. Radio just does not fit into my lifestyle well. I know a lot of people who do not listen to KSIB except in the morning. So, you may be missing many potential customers!So Stephanie is not qualified to run the newspaper. She was originally hired to report on area arts events, if I recall.

I like both of our news outlets. sometimes they both are a little late or repeat old news. my problem with ksib is they repeat the news 2 or 3 times on one day and a lot of times, it’s 1 or 2 or even 3 times the next day, especially if it i slow, but still?? the newspaper has a downfall, because it usually does have just old news. I seem to remember when ksib would only have news they read from the CNA

just my 2 cents worth

Discount mulberry candles Outlet Cyndie O’Bryon joins Colliers International

Cyndie O’Bryon, a high profile real estate broker and founding member of the Cleveland chapter of Commercial Real Estate Women Inc., has joined Colliers International Cleveland Akron as a first vice president in its office unit.

O’Bryon joined Colliers on Monday, Jan. 8 from Beachwood based NAI Daus, where she was a senior vice president.

Brian Hurtuk, managing director of Colliers Cleveland Akron, said “(O’Bryon) is a consummate professional who brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our firm, especially in the office arena.”

Hurtuksaid said O’Bryon’s background, which includes working on staffs of real estate owners, will help expand his firm’s landlord representation practice, both in downtown Cleveland and the eastern suburbs, the two largest segments of the region’s office market.

At Daus, she represented local developers RMS Investment Co. in pre leasing for the office component of the Van Aken District mixed use project in Shaker Heights and also worked for Stark Enterprises.

As a real estate agent, she also has worked for the firm that’s now Newmark Knight Frank’s Cleveland office, the former tenant rep firm Brandon Wiant Converse, now part of CBRE Group Inc., and operated her own company.

O’Bryon said she joined Colliers because of the opportunity it represents and was attracted by the benefits of the Colliers platform of offices and technolgy. However, she said working downtown attracted her after she recently represented Electronic Merchant Systems in its just signed lease at 250 W. Huron Road, a Bedrock Cleveland skyscraper. The firm will move downtown from Independence.

“The lure of downtown got to me as well,” she said in an interview, referring to the Colliers office at 200 Public Square. “Being downtown is energizing.”

O’Bryon also served as a president of Crew Cleveland and a delegate twice to Crew’s national conventions. She was the first woman to earn the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors designation in Ohio. She later served as president of the trade group’s Ohio chapter and as a member of the SIOR Foundation.

mulberry shoulder bags sale uk Curious case

Discount mulberry winter sale Outlet Curious case

Madras Police Commissioner S. Sripal finds himself in the unenviable position of being damned if he does and damned if he does not.

With contrary directions emanating from the judiciary and the legislature, Sripal found himself the helpless victim of a curious constitutional crisis in the state. If he arrests Paulraj he could be hauled up for contempt of court. If he does not he could be cited for the same offence as Paulraj breach of the Assembly’s privilege.

The police commissioner was tight lipped about what he planned to do, but it was apparent that this was one instance when no action was the best action. Paulraj was in hiding, and the police could say they were unable to trace him.

Paulraj’s dilemma perhaps best symbolised the growing legislative storm in the state that has been brewing for some time and has now predictably set the state legislature and the judiciary on a confrontation course.

It all began with an editorial by Paulraj in the February 1983 issue of his weekly in which he wrote: “Recently our chief minister announced that the incidence of rowdyism in the state has been drastically reduced.

Only now we realise that all the rowdies in the state have contested elections, become honourable MLA’s and entered the legislature. Naturally rowdyism on the streets has decreased. The dignity, honour, decorum and discipline so native to the state of Tamil Nadu have been scattered to the winds by the antics of rowdies, goondas and loafers who had gained entry to the legislature as MLA’s.”

“The House is supreme. Nobody, no power on earth, can interfere with us.”

P. H. Pandian Tamil Nadu assembly speaker

Strong words, and they brought the wrath of the MLA’s down on Paulraj’s head. The privileges committee of the then assembly recommended one week’s imprisonment for him, but the recommendation was not acted upon.

However the next eighth assembly took up the matter again and sentenced Paulraj to two weeks imprisonment, and initially the legislators received a measure of satisfaction. Judge S. Mohan of the high court refused to admit Paulraj’s petition on the ground that the legislature was a continuing body, and therefore the editor’s contention that it was not in order for the eighth Assembly to act on the recommendations of the privileges committee of the seventh was not applicable.

The judge also cited Article 212 of the Constitution which lays down that “the validity of any proceedings in the legislature shall not be called in question on the ground of any alleged irregularity of procedure.”

Only a day before the judgement Pandian had crowed: “The House is supreme. Nobody, no power on earth can interfere with us.” But a closer look at Mohan’s judgement revealed that it was not as great a victory for the legislators as it was made out to be.

The judge had not conceded blanket immunity to the legislature. He had not laid down that nothing happening in a legislature could be called into question in a court.

But what was most responsible for raising the legislators hackles was an obiter dicta Mohan tacked on to his judgement in which he quoted former President Sarvapalli Radha krishnan as saying: “Our representatives who will speak on behalf of our nation should be cultured, disinterested and public sprited persons and not those who are lost in petty personal, local, caste and communal squabbles and succumb to the seduction of power.”

After the quotation the judge posed a relevant question: “Is it too much of an expectation or too high a demand? Let history answer.”

“His lordship should not have said that. I shall deal with this on behalf of the House,” threatened Pandian. He was clearly brandishing his sword of legislative privilege. And as if he was replying to the judge’s quotation from Radha Krishnan, he came up with a quote from the late US president Franklin Delano Roosevelt: “We have therefore reached the point as a nation where we must take action to save the constitution from the court and the court from itself. We want a supreme court which will do justice under the Constitution, not over it. In our courts we want a government of laws and not of men,”

Paulraj’s defence before the first bench of the high court was the same as before Mohan: that the eighth Assembly could not work on the recommendations of the privileges committee of the seventh. And this time the bench stayed his arrest. But in a consequent statement the speaker said the Assembly’s arrest warrant was still “operative”.

Ramaswamy, the redoubtable editor of the popular Tamil fortnightly, Tughlaq, has launched what leader of the House and Finance Minister V. R. Nedunchezhiyan termed “repeated assaults on the dignity of the House” while referring to a privilege motion against him to the Committee.

Though Ramaswamy does have a reputation for taking up cudgels on behalf of all manner of causes, Paulraj does not fit the image of a crusading journalist. The 42 year old editor belongs to the Christian Nadar community, and his journal the circulation of which has never exceeded 10,000 had been conceived as a mouthpiece for the Christian Nadar business community that would help it wrest concessions from the Government.

The editorials would lambast the Government if promised concessions to the community did not materialise. It was apparently during one of those depressed moods of the community that Paulraj picked on the legislative Assembly.

A lower middle class man who lives in a dingy slum in west Madras, Paulraj is a devout Congress(I) loyalist who wears only khadi and according to his wife “wept uncontrollably when he heard the news of Mrs Gandhi’s death.”

Ramaswamy and Paulraj seem to have reason enough for their persistent broadsides if the record of the Tamil Nadu assembly proceedings is anything to go by. Once, when he was deputy speaker, Pandian had actually challenged DMK member Rahman Khan to a physical duel.

He has been guilty of uttering unprintable epithets quite often, and gained notoriety in the earlier assembly for expunging his own remarks on quite a few occasions when he was in the chair.

The general standard of debate in the House can be gauged from the fact that when Nedunchezhiyan proposed the two weeks imprisonment for Paulraj and Rahman Khan of the DMK brought an amendment to reduce the sentence to one week, every bit of the 45 minute long proceedings had to be expunged.

If the whole issue of the judiciary versus the legislature comes to a boil it is difficult to predict the possibilities. The Supreme Court has ruled that the legislature and the judiciary are both supreme in their respective spheres.

The unanswered question is: who is more supreme when their spheres overlap? Cho Ramaswamy says: “Courts are entitled to see what the privileges of a House are. They can go into whether a particular thing is a privilege or not. But whatever it is the right of obscenity is not one of the privileges of even this House with all its aptitude for it. People are entitled to know how their representatives behave inside the House.” Over to Pandian.
