Liberals reject almost all of the Conservatives amendments to contentious Bill C69

About 90 per cent of the Conservative amendments will not be agreed to, he said, including allowing the new Impact Assessment Agency flexibility to decide whether to take into account a project’s effect on Indigenous rights or climate change.The government is also rejecting amendments that would make it harder to challenge a project approval in court and limit who can participate in review hearings. Hate mail and vitriol: Divisions run deep over bill that could reshape our natural resources economy Opinion: The plot to murder Canada’s resource sector is one script Hollywood won’t touch Senators fixed the worst of Bill C-69. Let’s make their suggestions permanent Opinion: This goofy clause in Bill C-69 will ensure resource development in Canada stops cold The official said the government is OK with the Impact Assessment Agency having discretion to decide how the public can meaningfully participate, but legislating away people’s right to be heard was “just flat out not acceptable.”Many of those amendments were heavily criticized by environment groups that said C-69 provided some balance between protecting the environment and economic growth. They blamed the Conservatives for wanting to give full reign to the oil and gas sector to run roughshod over the environment.Environment Minister Catherine McKenna served notice late Tuesday of her intention to table the government’s motion responding to the Senate amendments in the House of Commons after question period Wednesday.Conservative senators, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers and five conservative premiers have all said that every single amendment has to be accepted or the bill will be the death knell for Canada’s oil and gas sector.The premiers this week warned Trudeau he was threatening national unity if he didn’t accept all the changes. In turn, he accused them of irresponsibly playing games with national unity simply because they weren’t getting their way.The legislation overhauls how major national resource and transportation projects, such as pipelines, mines and interprovincial highways, are assessed for their impact on the environment, the economy, and the health and social well-being of Canadians.It fulfills a Liberal election promise to replace a 2012 process brought in by the former Conservative government. That process, used to review both the Northern Gateway pipeline and the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, ended up with a federal court overturning the cabinet approval because the review process didn’t adequately consider environmental effects and Indigenous rights.There are many amendments, mostly made by independent senators who were appointed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau since 2016, the government will accept. Those include changes to reduce the discretion of the minister of the environment to interfere in a review process.The government initially wrote the bill so that the minister would be able to intervene to lift time constraints placed on the review process, to appoint the panellists who will review major projects, and, in some cases, to force a proposed project to be assessed under the act even if it isn’t among the list of the types of projects to which the bill is supposed to apply.The changes transfer those authorities from the minister to the head of the new Impact Assessment Agency.Changes that improve the role regional assessments can play to look at proposals will be accepted as the government wants to reduce duplication of reviews at provincial and federal levels. Also, changes that give more clarity to how a new planning and design phase will work are also acceptable to the government.The planning phase is meant to force project proponents to put their cards on the table early so any potential concerns from affected communities can be raised immediately. OTTAWA — The federal government is rejecting most of the amendments proposed by Conservative senators to Bill C-69.A senior government official speaking on the condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly on the matter, said after going through every amendment — there were 187 by one count — the government has concluded most of the proposals by Conservative senators were designed to weaken the bill.“The vast majority of conservative proposals are simply unacceptable,” he said. read more

New York advances strongly TSX posts 63point gain amid rate hike anxiety

New York advances strongly; TSX posts 63-point gain amid rate hike anxiety after Tuesday’s big drop by Peter Henderson, The Canadian Press Posted Sep 2, 2015 7:21 am MDT Last Updated Sep 2, 2015 at 3:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The Toronto Stock Exchange posted a solid, double-digit gain Wednesday, but it wasn’t nearly enough to make up for the sharp drop of the previous session.Toronto’s S&P/TSX composite index closed up 63.35 points at 13,545.25, following a 377-point decline on Tuesday.The Dow Jones industrial average of 30 stocks ended the day up 293.03 points at 16,351.38, while the broader S&P 500 index advanced 35.01 points to 1,948.86 and the Nasdaq gained 113.87 points to 4,749.98. All three lost more than 2.8 per cent of their value on Tuesday.Markets have seen wild swings over the last two weeks as investors have been roiled by volatility in the Chinese markets, which kicked off a worldwide stock slump last month. There is also uncertainty about an upcoming meeting of the U.S. Federal Reserve.Gareth Watson, vice-president of investment management and research at Richardson GMP Ltd., said the volatility will continue while investors await the American central bank’s decision on interest rates, due Sept. 17.The Fed is widely expected to raise interest rates before the end of the year, and Watson said there is anxiety about what will happen when rates do start to rise.“We have been going one way on rates for so long now that I think you have a market now trying to deal with and embrace the fact that we’re finally going to go in the opposite direction,” he said.As rates rise in a recovering American economy, borrowing money will become more expensive. Watson said that over the long term higher rates will dampen returns from the stock markets as businesses and investors pay higher prices to borrow money.“We’re going through that transition where investors have to change their expectations and that’s led to the increased amount of volatility over the past two weeks,” he said.China remains in focus across financial markets. The Shanghai composite index opened more than four per cent lower, but turned positive by midday and eventually ended the day down just 0.2 per cent. The volatile trading led some analysts to suspect Beijing was intervening to support share prices before a two-day holiday.Watson said some investors read the slide in Chinese markets as evidence that the country’s economy is lagging already lowered expectations.“We’ve been talking about a slowing China for years,” he said. “But now there’s a conversation about a China that’s slowing down even more than expected.”On commodity markets, the December gold contract fell $6.20 to US$1,133.60 an ounce, the October crude contract rose 84 cents to US$46.25 a barrel and the October contract for natural gas dropped 5.4 cents to US$2.648 per thousand cubic feet.The loonie fell 0.28 of a cent to end the day worth 75.35 cents US. read more

Prince Harry and Meghans royal wedding effect helps boost Royal Collection to

Windsor Castle and Frogmore House, the site of the royal weddings and the Sussex’s evening reception respectively, celebrated an extra 200,000 visitors – their highest total ever at 1.7m – thanks to special exhibitions giving a glimpse behind the scenes of the nuptials. Royal Mews, where the Ascot Landau Prince Harry and Meghan Markle used for their carriage ride was put on show, received £200,000 more from paying guests.  Since then, only 2016-7 has seen a comparable boost in sales, at 20 per cent, thanks to the commemorative range for the Queen’s 90th birthday and a new selection of leather collars, dog bandannas and coats for pets inspired by her corgis.  It brought tourists flocking to Windsor and joy to royal-watchers everywhere. The Royal Wedding also had a more tangible effect, as the Royal Collection Trust announces a record year of visitors and gift sales. The RCT has reported a bumper year in which it received £72 million in income, its highest annual visitor numbers to date, and an 18 per cent rise in retail sales thanks to landmark moments including the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.Year-on-year, it enjoyed the biggest increase in income from admissions since 2011, when the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge inspired a 26 per cent rise in ticket sales and a 46 per cent increase from retail. In 2018-9, the Trust made £48.3m from admissions to residences including Buckingham Palace, Clarence House, Windsor Castle and Frogmore House: an 18 per cent rise from the previous financial year. Retail sales, from the palaces’ gift shops, increased from £18.2 to £21.7 million year-on-year, with “noticeable growth” from online shopping “reflecting the popularity of Royal Wedding-related merchandise”.  The annual report noted in particular the success of commemorative china to mark the birth of Prince Louis, the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, and the 70th birthday of the Prince of Wales. The wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton saw a 46 per cent rise in sales The wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank The wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack BrooksbankCredit:PA While the Trust benefitted from sales of a commemorative range for Prince Louis’ birth, it will not receive a comparable boost from Archie Mountbatten-Windsor next year. As he does not have the title of “His Royal Highness”, no such official memorabilia was produced. This year, the Royal Collection shops launched two new collaborations: a range of silk pyjamas, eye masks and scarves featuring corgis and crowns, and a collection of jewellery inspired by pieces worn by the Queen. The birth of Prince Louis was celebrated with a commemorative range Writing in the report’s foreword, Tim Knox, the new director of the Royal Collection Trust, said: “It is with great pleasure and pride that I look back on the past 12 months, a year in which we welcomed a record number of visitors to the palaces, achieved the highest-ever level of retail sales and staged an unprecedented 22 exhibitions around the UK.”The report notes that “other retail income”, which includes online shopping and gifts bought through other venues such as John Lewis or the Historic Royal Palaces, went up by around £1m. In 2011-2, the RCT recorded an “extremely successful year, continuing to benefit from the effects of the celebrations surrounding the marriage of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge”, with more than 190,000 items of wedding-related merchandise sold to make around £4 million.

WWT20 Bangladesh bowled out for 48 in low scoring thriller against

She bowled in the right areas and destroyed the Bangladesh team with match winning figures of 5-6. Her record breaking performance was the best in Women’s World T20 cricket tournaments.With 40 overs being bowled on the Providence wicket in approximately 7 hours of play, the defending champions, West Indies were asked to bat by Bangladesh’s captain, Salma Khatun.Bangladesh read the conditions brilliantly at Providence, including four spin bowlers and the lone fast bowler, Jahanara Alam.The threatening opening duo of Hayley Matthews and Deandra Dottin made their way to the center as the relatively fair size Guyanese crowd showed support. Right arm pacer, Jahanara Alam bowled the first over of the match as Matthews and Dottin showed their intent from ball one.Dottin smashed the pacer’s fourth ball straight down the ground for a maximum but Khatun; the off-spinner introduced herself in the second over. The Bangladesh spin attack spun webs around the West Indies Women; in Khatun’s first over she opted for a review against Dottin, which was turned down by the umpire.The consistent Jahanara Alam who had seam-movement with the new ball, returned for her second over and found herself on a hat trick picking up both openers in the space of two deliveries.Matthews who scored 6 runs, was the first wicket to fall with the score on 14.Dottin was removed by Alam in the next ball when she was caught by Fahima Khatun as the West Indies batting struggle began. Stafanie Taylor and lone Guyanese Shemaine Campbell found themselves at the crease; the Bangladesh bowlers utilized the conditions in a professional manner as they continue building pressure with a large percentage of dot deliveries.Campbell was removed in the fourth over after she scored one run from five balls. The West Indies batters are more known as power-hitters but on a slow pitch, rotating the strike would have been the more suitable option.Instead, dot deliveries built pressure and wickets continued to fall.Natasha McLean was bowled by the leg-spinner, Ahmed for 11 while Britney Cooper struggled to get the ball off the square, with a score of 8 from 18 balls.The West Indies captain stood strong as she played a painstaking innings. Kaciya Knight joined her skipper and the pair looked to rebuild.As wickets continued to fall at regular intervals leg-spinner, Ahmed captured the prize scalp of Taylor who played a responsible innings in the context of the game.Taylor faced 44 balls for her 29 inclusive of two boundaries. Wicketkeeper batter, Kaciya Knight created different angles to score runs as she quickly adjusted to the sluggish wicket. Knight, one of the three batters with a strike rate of 100, hit one of the two maximums in her 24-ball 32 being the top-score.Alam picked up three wickets in four consistent overs, while leg-spinner, Ahmed grabbed 2 wickets. Off-spinners, Khatun and Tul Kubra picked up one wicket each to restrict the defending champions.The Bangladesh chase started off with a bit of luck in the first over as Cooper misfield a ball which eventually went into the boundary. However, the lively opening bowlers Selman and Connell bowled an off-stump line that exposed the Bangladesh top-order. Selman in particular removed Bangladesh opener Sultana on the final ball of the first over.Captain Stafanie Taylor did not present the Bangladeshi batters the opportunity to take the game away in the power play. After the first six overs, Bangladesh found themselves in a state of trouble with 19 runs on the board losing the top 3 batters.The West Indies spin attack which includes Anisa Mohammed, Afy Fletcher, Stafanie Taylor and Hayley Matthews were expected to utilize the spin-friendly conditions. Taylor introduced herself into the attack and shattered the stumps of Rahman as wickets continued to fall.The game changing introduction of the fiery Deandra Dottin saw more wickets tumble as the athletic Dottin took two wickets in her brilliant first over.At the half-way stage the Asian side were 32-5 requiring 75 in the final 10 overs.Dottin continued her dream spell and she picked up two more wickets in her second over.Dottin removed the capable Ahmed with her fourth ball and Mondal was out with the sixth delivery.Bangladesh batters failed to bat with technique and found themselves in deep trouble as they were blown away for a miserable 46.All of the Bangladeshi batters failed to reach double figures as they produced their worst batting performance.Speaking at the post match presentation Dottin noted that West Indies were confident that they could have won the match with 100 runs to defend.

Opposition to mining runs deep on Livingston Mountain

first_img Months after the Clark County Planning Commission recommended not to expand mining zones through Livingston Mountain, the issue will come back before the county Thursday at a joint meeting of the planning commission and the board of commissioners.An update of what’s known as the county’s “surface mining overlay” — areas in which mining is a permitted use — could open the door to new or expanded operations in some rural parts of Clark County. On Livingston Mountain near Camas, the issue has led to a dispute between residents and the state, with the county stuck in the middle.Thursday’s meeting will provide an update — the first since October, when the planning commission unanimously vetoed the notion of expanding mining zones. But residents worry that the county will shift course, at the direction of the state Department of Natural Resources, and ignore the recommendation. There will be no public comment at Thursday’s meeting.Livingston Mountain and Yacolt Mountain have been the epicenters of attention in the review process. And up on Livingston Mountain, residents say they’re again uncertain about the future.When Tyler and Wendy McCullough moved to their upscale neighborhood, they say they didn’t know adjacent land could be swallowed up by a mining overlay. Homes in the gated community fetch more than $1 million and, Wendy McCullough said, an expansion of the existing Livingston quarry would send those values plummeting. Residents have also complained about dust, noise, traffic and potential degradation to well water caused by the mines. Click to enlargelast_img read more

Household pollutants can cause infertility

first_imgEnvironmental contaminants found in home and diet have the same adverse effects on male fertility both in humans and domestic dogs, finds a new study highlighting the decline in sperm quality in both the species over the past few years. The findings, published in the journal Scientific Reports, showed the chemicals – at concentrations relevant to environmental exposure – have the same damaging effect on sperm of both man and dog. “We know when human sperm motility is poor, DNA fragmentation is increased and that human male infertility is linked to increased levels of DNA damage in sperm,” said co-author Rebecca Sumner, postdoctoral student at the University of Nottingham, Britain. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”We now believe this is the same in pet dogs because they live in the same domestic environment and are exposed to the same household contaminants,” Sumner said. For the study, the team tested the effects of two man-made chemicals – the common plasticiser DEHP, widely used in the home and the industrial chemical polychlorinated biphenyl 153, which although banned globally, remains widely detectable in the environment, including food. The researchers carried out identical experiments for both species using samples of sperm from donor men and stud dogs, living in the same region. “This new study supports our theory that the domestic dog is indeed a ‘sentinel’ or mirror for human male reproductive decline. Our findings suggest man-made chemicals, widely used in home and working environment, may be responsible for the decline in sperm quality.”last_img read more

That amounts to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $517.7 billion. Overall, total private residential construction spending was 7.4 percent higher in October than it was a year prior.NAHB’s construction spending index, seen below, charts changes in single-family construction spending, multi-family construction spending, and home improvement spending since 2000. All three have been trending upwards for most of the decade. For comparison’s sake, in October 2017 remodeling spending was also on the rise, leaping up 1.4 percent. Multifamily construction spending dipped for the month, however, slipping to 1.6 percent—2 percent lower than a year prior.As highlighted by a November 2017 Migration Report published by Redfin.com, residential construction spending has also been driving increased migration to various cities around the country. According to Redfin’s analysis, the top 10 cities with the highest net inflow include San Diego, California; Sacramento, California; Las Vegas, Nevada; Phoenix, Arizona; Atlanta, Georgia; Boston, Massachusetts; Dallas, Texas; Nashville, Tennessee; Tampa, Florida; and Miami, Florida.For anyone looking to learn all the ins and outs of the rental side of the single-family equation, be sure to register for the 2018 Single-Family Rental Summit, happening March 19-21, 2018, at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.
