PM wont release McLellan report on SNCLavalin until ethics report released

first_imgOTTAWA — Justin Trudeau says he’s received a “great” report from former Liberal cabinet minister Anne McLellan on the SNC-Lavalin affair.But the prime minister says it won’t be made public until federal ethics commissioner Mario Dion releases his own report into the explosive affair that rocked the government last winter and sent Liberal popularity on a downward slide from which the party has not yet fully recovered.Dion’s office won’t comment on the status of his investigation but Liberal insiders privately expect the report will be released in early September — just as the campaign for the Oct. 21 election moves into high gear.Trudeau is likely hoping to blunt the impact of a potentially damaging report from the ethics commissioner by releasing McLellan’s report at the same time.He appointed her to analyze and make recommendations on questions that arose out of the SNC-Lavalin affair, including whether the roles of minister of justice and attorney general should be separated.The affair revolved around an allegation by former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould that she was improperly pressured by the Prime Minister’s Office to halt a criminal prosecution of the Montreal engineering giant.

Posthaste Scheers small biz breaks isnt for mom and pop — and

Good morning!A new impeachment circus will land in Washington D.C. today and investors are already feeling jittery, piling in on gold and fleeing equities.BMO Capital Market says that while an impeachment inquiry is “highly unlikely” to lead to the U.S. President’s dismissal from office, given the two-thirds vote required for conviction in the Senate (which means at least 20 Republicans will vote guilty), “it could distract Congress from ratifying the USMCA and distract the President from signing a trade deal with China.”RBC Capital Markets, which surveyed clients in September to assess the market’s mood, says investors were feeling better in its latest survey, but that was before Trump’s Ukraine scandal blew up, leading to an impeachment inquiry. While the bank did not ask the impeachment question this time around, its June survey — when the Robert Mueller report was the talk of Washington — suggested that 57 per cent felt a Trump impeachment without conviction would be neutral for stocks.“We tend to agree with the neutral assessment on the latter scenario, but note that it could have a more adverse impact on the market if it appears to lower Trump’s chances of winning re-election, or Biden’s chances for winning the nomination, given that a win by a progressive Democrat is clearly viewed as a negative scenario for stocks by investors today,” RBC said in its report.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.Here’s what’s you need to know this morning:Scheer’s small biz breaks isn’t really for ‘mom and pop’ Kik was controversial success story.

Michael Noonan expects there will be a new Cabinet by Wednesday

first_imgUpdated 7.39pmFINANCE MINISTER MICHAEL Noonan expects that there will be a new Cabinet in place by Wednesday.Taoiseach Enda Kenny and new Tánaiste Joan Burton also discussed the upcoming reshuffle during a five-hour meeting earlier today.The pair also focused the coalition’s agenda, and what policies will be pursued over the remaining lifetime of the government.Talks are due to continue tomorrow morning after Cabinet’s weekly meeting.Speaking in Brussels, Noonan said that he does not expect dramatic refocusing of the government’s agenda but said he expects issues like social housing will be at the forefront.On the reshuffle he said that it will be “reasonably significant” because of the vacancies that have arisen in Labour and Fine Gael.“I’d expect we’ll have a new Cabinet announced by Wednesday,” he told reporters.He added that he expected the nomination of Ireland’s next EU Commissioner to be part of that process. Fine Gael’s Phil Hogan is widely tipped to take the role ahead of Labour’s Eamon GilmoreHe was speaking as Enda Kenny and the newly-appointed Tánaiste Joan Burton are meeting at Government Buildings today.Kenny is meeting Burton for the first time since she was elected as leader of the Labour Party on Friday.Kenny and Burton have been in contact by phone over the weekend and the Tánaiste sent the Taoiseach a document outlining her position on key issues over the weekend.She has already prioritised social housing and the establishment of a low-pay commission in the remaining lifetime of this government.The pair met for preliminary talks with one of the key items on the agenda being the imminent Cabinet reshuffle.Read: Here are the 9 things you need to know about the imminent Cabinet reshuffle‘Full and frank discussion’ Source: Leon Farrell/Photocall IrelandSpeaking on her way into Government Buildings this morning Burton said she expects a “full and a frank discussion”.“I think we both want the government continue its mandate and we want to chart a pathway to basically a better Ireland,” she said.Kenny said he is looking forward to meeting the new Tanaiste, saying: ”We have business to conduct on behalf of the country,” he said. “What the people want is a continuation of government that will work in the interests of the people of Ireland.”“I’ve seen all the wonderful speculation in the last few days I’ve seen at least 10 different Cabinets outlined. What the people want is a government that’s working in the interests of the country.”There are indications that the reshuffle may not happen until later in the week.Many reports this morning say that key roles in the cabinet are the main cause of friction between Labour and Fine Gael.This means tomorrow’s usual weekly meeting of Cabinet will go ahead with the current crop of ministers including ex-tánaiste Eamon Gilmore who remains Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade.In the reshuffle, RTÉ says that Labour is interested in Enterprise and Employment, with Labour’s new deputy leader Alan Kelly set to take on the important role.First published 7.15am – additional reporting Paul HosfordRead: Joan Burton is the new leader of the Labour PartyRead: Burton’s social housing promises ‘can’t be more spin’last_img read more

Hong Kongers harness traffic cones kitchenware to battle tear

first_imgHONG KONG: As a tear gas canister clatters onto a street in Hong Kong, a pro-democracy protester wearing heat-proof gloves and carrying a traffic cone sprints from the crowd to put it out. Police have ramped up their use of the crowd control measure as two months of rallies in the global financial hub have turned increasingly violent, peaking with 800 rounds fired on Monday in what protesters called a “tear gas buffet”. Also Read – US judge dismissed criminal case against Jeffrey Epstein Advertise With Us Hardcore demonstrators are responding with ever more creative methods to neutralise the threat, harnessing everything from traffic cones to kitchenware. Their arsenal includes several must-haves: heat-resistant gloves, so they can pick up searingly hot canisters, and respirators that have been dubbed “pig snouts” in Cantonese. Online forums host discussions on which models of 3M respirator filters work best against tear gas, and which local hardware stores still have the preferred models in stock. Also Read – Watch: Donald Trump says Florida faces absolute monster hurricane Advertise With Us “I really need to get one! The good masks are already very hard to find on the street,” wrote one commenter. On the streets, protesters compare notes on their equipment and offer tips. After police fired tear gas at protesters hurling bottles and bricks on Monday, one bystander gasped and rubbed his eyes, attracting the attention of a passing demonstrator who handed him a mask. Advertise With Us “This one’s not the good one but it will work,” he said. “You’ve always got to carry one!” Demonstrators have formed special “units” in charge of tackling tear gas, which leap into action as soon as a canister is fired. Some wrap their arms and legs in cling wrap to prevent the painful skin irritations that the gas and pepper spray can cause, and they carry saline to rinse the eyes of anyone affected. Canisters are sometimes picked up and lobbed back at police or extinguished straight away with water bottles. Some carry traffic cones, which can be popped on top of canisters to contain the gas before protesters douse them with water. Months of street battles against police have allowed protesters to develop a sophisticated response to crowd control techniques, said Tony Davis, a Bangkok-based security analyst with IHS Jane’s. “What’s happening in Hong Kong allows the protesters to learn and they’re developing skills,” he said. “They’re becoming in a sense, an organised army, which they certainly weren’t in the first phase.” They might be an “army”, but their equipment is mostly improvised, with one recent tool of choice coming straight from the kitchen. When police fired tear gas at residents in the working-class neighbourhood of Wong Tai Sin, a local grabbed a cheap aluminium wok lid to snuff out the gas. The cooking lids have now become standard issue for some protesters — part of an arsenal that also includes umbrellas and even swimming goggles to protect against pepper spray. While tear gas is a common crowd control method worldwide, it had rarely been seen in Hong Kong before the latest protest movement. Its use during the Occupy Central blockade of city streets in 2014, the city’s last period of civil unrest, caused widespread outrage.last_img read more

Bash Bug Could Be Bigger Than Heartbleed

first_img Register Now » Almost six months after the Heartbleed bug was discovered, another security flaw has been uncovered. And the “Bash bug” has the potential to be even more dangerous.The 25-year-old security vulnerability is based in the “Bash shell,” a program that controls the command prompt and is used for many simple tasks on your computer, like opening an application. The “Bash” or “Shellshock” bug affects computers running Unix and Linux devices, as well as hardware running Mac OS X, reports CNET.The bug is triggered when a hacker adds extra code to lines of Bash code, allowing him or her to potentially take control of your device and access your private information. The hack is reportedly low complexity, which could be catastrophic when paired with the wide range of devices in danger. The National Vulnerability Database ranks the bug a 10 out of 10 in terms of severity, so it really can’t get much worse than this.Related: Another Hack: Jimmy John’s Is the Latest Chain to Suffer a Data BreachSince Bash is so widely used in operating systems, a huge volume of devices are likely to be vulnerable to the bug. Especially at risk are “Internet-of-Things” devices, which often use software built from web-enabled bash scripts and are less likely to be patched than a laptop. Without patching something like your home security system or a light bulb that is connected to your network, the bug can allow hackers to access everything behind your firewall.Also at risk are older devices. Since the security flaw has been around for a quarter of a century, there will be many vulnerable devices that likely won’t be patched, putting users’ entire networks at risk.Users have been advised to patch their operating systems ASAP. Keep an eye out for available updates that fix the vulnerability, and download as soon as they are available. Related: 4 Ways to Protect Yourself From the ‘Heartbleed’ Bug Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 2 min readcenter_img September 25, 2014 Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Globallast_img read more

Gays cant burn in hell It doesnt exist Pope quoted as saying

first_imgThe Pope has been bizarrely quoted as saying ‘hell does not exist.’ GAYSTARNEWS- But, it’s only sinful in the religions eyes to act upon same-sex urges. Gay sex is therefore ‘contrary to the natural law’ and a moral disorder. But, simply being LGBTI, is not a sin.Moreover, the alleged comments all come on an important weekend for the church, celebrating the Easter festival this weekend.Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, as described in the New Testament, three days after his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary.Speaking to Gay Star News, Reverend Steve Chalke of the LGBTI friendly religious group Oasis says:‘The reality is that Jesus didn’t talk much about the afterlife. He spent his time trying to bring the principles of heaven – like love and justice – to earth.‘For what it’s worth, I don’t believe in a literal Hell. However, I do believe that when some Christians tell LGBT people that they are inherently sinful, or encourage them to oppress their sexuality or gender identity, they make their lives a living Hell.’Read More from Gay Star News:The secret history of gay saints the Catholic Church doesn’t want you to read Pope quoted as saying ‘hell doesn’t exist’ | Photo: CockyBoys/GSN If quoted correctly, the huge theological shift would go against hundreds of years of teaching from the Catholic Church.However the Vatican has now said the comments, quoted in an Italian newspaper, were a ‘reconstruction’ of what the Pope actually believes.They come from an article by co-founder and former editor of La Repubblica Eugenio Scalfari. He is well known being an atheist but has had several telephone conversations and face-to-face meetings with the Pope.The Vatican confirmed Pope Francis did invite Scalfari to his residence March 27.During their conversation, the 93-year-old Scalfari says the Pope said that while souls of repentant sinners ‘receive the forgiveness of God and go among the line of souls who contemplate him – the souls of those who are unrepentant and thus cannot be forgiven, disappear,’ La Repubblica reports.Going on to say:‘Hell does not exist, the disappearance of sinful souls exists.’But, The Vatican says that this ‘private meeting’ was not an interview, and therefore cannot be considered a ‘faithful transcription’:‘The quotes in this article are the result of his reconstruction. The literal words of the Pope are not quotes. And therefore, are not a faithful transcription of the words of the Holy Father.’What does Catholic teaching say about hell?Catholic teaching says that after you die:‘The souls of those who die in a state of mortal sin descend into hell.’ Got a news tip?

Venezuela stages inauguration rally without Chávez

first_imgNo related posts. CARACAS – With cancer-stricken President Hugo Chávez hospitalized in Cuba, tens of thousands of flag-waving Venezuelans filled the streets of Caracas on Thursday to inaugurate his new term without him.Bands played patriotic anthems from street-side stages as citizens clad in the red of Chávez’s leftist movement poured out of buses to make their way on foot toward the Miraflores presidential palace.There, they staged a symbolic swearing-in of the people, in place of Chávez, who is too sick to re-take the oath of office himself.Shouts of “Chávez, Chávez!” and the anti-opposition “They will not return” could be heard as Chavista militants stoked the crowds with fiery speeches.“I love the president,” said Pedro Brito, a 60-year-old law professor, in a red T-shirt with the slogan “I am Chávez.” Gladys Guerrero, 35, said she traveled by bus from the eastern state of Monagas “to repay love with love.”Vice President Nicolás Maduro hosted a meeting of leftist Latin American presidents and other foreign representatives who have come to show support for the Chávez government in a period of deep uncertainty about the future.Uruguay’s President José Mujica was the first foreign leader to arrive for Thursday’s show of support. Bolivian President Evo Morales, Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega, Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe, and foreign ministers Hector Timerman of Argentina and Ricardo Patino of Ecuador were in attendance.As pro-Chávez crowds built outside the presidential palace, the opposition called for counter-demonstrations on Jan. 23, the day Venezuela’s modern democratic era began in 1958 with the ouster of its last military dictatorship.“We want to especially address the people of Venezuela, and summon the entire country to give a massive demonstration of force in the streets,” said Miriam Montilla, a lawmaker speaking on behalf of the parliamentary opposition.The Supreme Court cleared the ailing Chávez to indefinitely postpone his swearing-in and said his existing administration could remain in office until he is well enough to take the oath.Supreme Court President Luisa Estella Morales, who read out the decision upholding the inauguration delay, also ruled out convening a medical board to assess the health of the president.It was the last legal hurdle to a government plan for resolving the vacuum created by Chávez’s illness that met fierce resistance from the opposition, which had argued it was unconstitutional.Leopoldo López, an opposition leader, said Chávez’s failure to turn up to his own ceremony had created “an indefinite situation in which we can be without a president, and without clear signs that the president is governing.”Henrique Capriles, who ran unsuccessfully against Chávez in the October presidential elections, accepted the Supreme Court ruling as “binding” but said it did not end the uncertainties facing the oil-rich country.But even without an official ceremony Venezuela’s government turned the day into a celebration of Chávez, who won re-election in October by an 11-point margin, despite concerns about his failing health.The government stopped a broadcaster, Globovision, from airing videos about the controversy over Chávez’s non-inauguration, saying they risked inciting political “intolerance.” Globovision, known for being critical of the government, denounced the ban as an act of censorship.
