Aboriginal Affairs changed water project once floated to Bruce Carson

first_imgBy Jorge Barrera and Kenneth JacksonAPTN National NewsOTTAWA–Federal bureaucrats once directed Bruce Carson, a former advisor to Prime Minister Stephen Harper now under an RCMP investigation, to the $5 million water pilot project for First Nations unveiled this week by Ottawa and Ontario.The Ottawa-based water filtration company Carson promoted, however, would likely not qualify for the pilot project announced Tuesday because it sold a different type of system than what was outlined in guidelines announced by the federal Aboriginal Affairs department.The department also changed the way bids will be considered for the pilot project from what was described to Carson in an email written by a department official last year.The pilot project aims to test technologies and try new ways to improve water quality on four selected Ontario communities. Alderville First Nation, Lac Seul First Nation, Munsee-Delaware First Nation and Zhiibaahaasing First Nation were selected to participate.Despite repeated requests by APTN National News to discuss the apparent change in the program, Aboriginal Affairs refused to discuss the announcement and the pilot project’s guidelines.According to information that was released by the department, the pilot project will favour bids from water filtration firms providing “point of entry” water systems that treat all water entering homes and are installed in a heated enclosure outside the building.Carson was lobbying Aboriginal Affairs officials on behalf of H2O Global Group and H2O Pros, which only sold point-of-use water filtration systems that treat water after it enters the house and before it reaches the tap.In discussions with the department, Carson referred to H2O’s product as “point-of-entry” filtration systems.The Prime Minister’s Office asked the RCMP, the Lobbying Commissioner and the Ethics Commissioner last March to investigate Carson after an APTN National News investigation into Carson’s ties to the water company and his lobbying efforts at the department. The company had a financial arrangement with Carson’s fiancée at the time, Michele McPherson, who was a former Ottawa escort.The systems sold by the company, which has since gone out of business, were eligible for the pilot project and the department was considering inviting H2O Pros to bid on the pilot project, according to a Feb. 17, 2011, email from a department official to Carson.“H2O Pros may be on the list of potential vendors invited to bid on this pilot-project,” wrote Lysian Bolduc, a senior infrastructure engineer for the department.Carson and H2O Pros were at the time trying to convince the Mohawk community of Tyendinaga, near Belleville, Ont., apply for department funding to install between 50 and 100 water filtration systems in the community.On Wednesday, March 16, 2011, Carson forwarded Bolduc’s email to a Tyendinaga band official with the note, “fyi-bc.”About two hours later, Tyendinaga Chief Donald Maracle phoned Patrick Ku, manager of technical services in the federal department’s Toronto branch asking him if H2O Pro was the “supplier of choice” for the department.“I received a call from Chief Maracle…10 minutes ago. He asked if H2O Pro is (the) supplier of choice,” said a March 16, 2011 email from Ku to three other officials that was obtained under the Access to Information Act. “I explained to him that (the department) does not endorse H2O Pro as the company to install their equipment in Tyendinaga.”The department has also changed the process for selecting firms to take part in the project. According to Bolduc’s email to Carson, which was written following a meeting between the former political PMO aide and department officials, a “pilot-project team” of federal and Ontario officials would pick the firms from a list compiled after a tendering process.“The pilot-project team is currently in the process of preparing a list of potential technologies and vendors,” wrote Bolduc. “Final technologies/vendors selected for evaluation through pilot-testing would be chosen by the project team through a tendering process that will consider both technical merit and anticipated life-cycle costs.”A few months after the email and following the eruption of the Carson scandal, which preceded the May 2 election, Aboriginal Affairs issued a press release announcing Ottawa and Ontario were launching three-year pilot project. But the July 6, 2011, press release stated that it would be up to the selected First Nations communities to pick and choose the companies it wanted to work with.“The First Nation communities selected for participation in this pilot project will be responsible for commissioning appropriate design and technology solutions for their communities through a request for proposals process,” said the release at the time.In Tuesday’s announcement, however, the selection process changed. Now, a committee with representatives from the selected First Nations, the federal Aboriginal affairs department and Ontario’s ministry of environment would select the winning bids.“Selecting appropriate design and technology solutions for these communities through a request for proposals (RFP) process conducted collaboratively with representatives from the First Nation communities, Ministry of Environment of Ontario and AANDC,” said the release.Joe Kim, spokesperson for Ontario’s environment ministry, said “no solutions have been excluded from consideration.”Kim confirmed the initial plan was to select companies from a list.“It was later decided that an open, transparent bidding process would be better,” he said.Kim said the First Nations would still have final say on who gets the winning bids, but Ontario and Ottawa officials would assist them with the technical review of the proposals.The pilot-project will also accept bids for improving existing infrastructure, new water trucks and pre-fabricated water treatment plants, along with “other approaches deemed appropriate,” according to the department’s statement.Kim said Ottawa had the lead on the file and that the province was primarily providing technical assistance.jbarrera@aptn.cakennethbrianjackson@gmail.comlast_img read more

Battle with Legal Aid forces Algonquin mother to pay for sons Gladue

first_imgKenneth JacksonAPTN National NewsOTTAWA – With time running out and feeling insulted, an Algonquin mother in Ottawa has taken it upon herself to ensure her son gets a Gladue report written before his sentencing next month for armed robbery.The mother has begun fundraising the money needed to pay for a private company to write the report in Ottawa because she said she never heard from the Ontario government’s writer in Nation’s capital since Justice Ann Alder ordered one for her 16-year-old son on Feb. 5.Her son’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for Mar. 23.“I don’t know what he’s doing but it takes a few seconds to just pick up the phone, dial a number and leave a message,” said the mother who APTN National News can’t identify because her son is a young offender.She’s referring to Chad Kicknosway, a writer employed through Aboriginal Legal Services Toronto (ALST) who is funded by Legal Aid Ontario.“I gave (Kicknosway) a call and he has not called me yet. Sentencing is coming up and I don’t think he’ll have the time to interview everyone and write the report. I want a good report for my son,” she said.Instead of waiting, she decided Wednesday evening to start fundraising in her home community of Lac Simon First Nation in Quebec.She’s hired IndiGenius, a company in Ottawa that has been writing Gladue reports for about seven months and earned the praise of judges and lawyers.A Gladue report examines an offenders history, such as where they came from, what they have been through and basically what may have led to them to the courts. They’re known as the Gladue principles. Often judges learn of trauma due to colonization and residential schools. The Supreme Court of Canada ruled in 1999 that judges must apply the principles and look for alternatives to incarceration at sentencing.It was a matter of luck but several months ago when her son was first appearing in court IndiGenius co-founder Mark Marsolais was there too and met the mom and son. “Mark has been there from the very beginning. He cares and I know he can get the report my son needs,” said the mom, adding she tried to go with IndiGenius from the get-go but was told she had to go with Kicknosway. It turns out the mother and son found themselves in the middle of a behind-the-scenes battle with Legal Aid and IndiGenius, a private company that writes Gladue reports.Legal Aid had been funding IndiGenius since the summer but slowly began shutting the door on using the private company. That’s because last fall it commissioned ALST to provide a Gladue writer in Ottawa as part of an increase in funding across the province to provide more Gladue reports.ALST, led by Jonathan Rudin, has been a leader in writing Gladue reports in Ontario for more than a decade. APTN tried to reach Kicknosway for more than a week with no success. A spokeswoman for Legal Aid said he works out of the Wabano Health Centre but the receptionist there not only didn’t have a number for him but didn’t know who he was. He’s supposed to have been working there since September.The mother went to Wabano this week looking for him and left a letter saying she didn’t want to wait any longer and wanted IndiGenius to do the report.APTN reached out to his superior at ALST who said Kicknosway wouldn’t be commenting.“I don’t want to get into a fight into who is doing what. That’s not our interest. We’re just doing reports when we’re asked to do reports by the court,” said Rudin, who is called upon by many lawyers across the country to speak on the issue of Gladue principles. “We’re just going to do the work we’re asked to do.”Rudin declined to comment on the mother’s case and said they’d discuss it with her.“This is something we’re going to work out,” he said.He’s also going to find out why the mother never heard from Kicknosway.For the mother, it’s just a matter of getting a report done by the person she wants. “I’m really frustrated they don’t want to use Mark (Marsolais). They’re trying to make us go through (ALST), she said.According to Legal Aid there’s a protocol for who does the Gladue reports in Ottawa. They’ve asked Ottawa courts to order reports through ALST.“That’s the first stop. That’s where we want people to go first,” said Nye Thomas, director general of policy and strategic research at Legal Aid. “If (ALST is) unable to write a report for some reason … and there is another report writer, say IndiGenius, available we’ll fund that organization to write a report.”Thomas was then asked what if a client or a parent doesn’t want to use Legal Aid’s “first stop” for any reason, can they go with a company of their choice to get a Gladue done?“It depends that’s all I can say. The policy allows for certain exceptions but depends on the specific facts,” he said.He then said that question was better suited for ALST but when pressed on the issue of ALST being a contactor and Legal Aid provides the funding he confirmed there is a choice.“We want people to go to ALST as our first choice and if ALST is unable to do it and then you have lots of different reasons why they are unable to do it, including potentially the clients or the family’s choice,” he said.When it comes to the specifics of this mother’s case Thomas said due to privacy he couldn’t speak to it.Marsolais would like to know why lawyers keep telling him Legal Aid won’t fund reports through IndiGenius.“If there’s a choice then why have so many lawyers, in the last couple of months, kept telling us they can’t go with us?” he said.“And clients do. They specifically ask for us. We’re getting a lot of calls. Word has spread about the quality of our work.”Regardless, Marsolais is interviewing the mother’s son Tuesday and intends to have a report completed before sentencing.The cost is between $1,500 to $2,000. “I’m just so relieved Mark is going to do it,” said the mother. kjackson@aptn.ca@afixedaddresslast_img read more

Airbnbs federal budget proposal tells Liberals We want to be regulated

first_imgOTTAWA – One of the world’s largest short-term rental websites is inviting the Trudeau Liberals to create a regulatory regime for the burgeoning industry — something its critics have long advocated and raising pressure on the government to set rules in the market.Airbnb’s budget proposal to the House of Commons finance committee asks the federal Liberals to avoid forcing “old and outdated rules” for traditional hotels onto Airbnb hosts, pushing instead for a simple-to-understand regime.In its five-page submission, the company bluntly says: “We want to be regulated” — a step beyond last year’s request for the government to apply a “light” regulatory touch.“We think as a platform our hosts should pay taxes. I know people get shocked when we say that, but we do. We think we should be contributing,” Alex Dagg, Airbnb’s public policy manager in Canada, said in an interview.“We just need to figure out what are the appropriate rules in place to do that and how can we facilitate that.”The submission leaves the Liberals with mounting requests and offers from online service providers themselves to set some regulations around their work, including applying sales taxes, all of which the government has thus far shied away from.Quebec, British Columbia and a handful of cities have enacted rules and struck deals to get tax revenues from bookings on Airbnb, which is one of the few services of its kind to negotiate tax agreements with Canadian governments. Quebec’s deal netted the province about $2.8 million over the first six months of the tax agreement.In April, a Liberal-dominated Commons committee urged Ottawa to make online service providers based outside the country collect and remit sales taxes as part of a series of recommendations to help Canada’s small businesses compete online.In late May, the national broadcast regulator released a report calling on the federal government to pry more commitments — monetary or otherwise — from online streaming giants like Netflix and Spotify and consider new internet levies to fund Canadian content.Federal officials have told groups that they are looking at how to tax and regulate online service providers, but don’t seem to have a clear idea of how to do it.The Hotel Association of Canada said Thursday the Liberals should require online businesses to also hand over detailed information on all home-renting activity so tax authorities have a list of all short-term rental hosts and can force those with high earnings to pay taxes like hotel chains.The industry group argued it wasn’t interested in targeting the casual home owner who rents out a room or unit for a few nights a year, instead putting a bull’s-eye on hosts who rent out multiple homes or units for months on end as part of a larger commercial operation.“We are not against Airbnb and we’re not against the competition. Competition is, in fact, a good thing. What we’re looking for here is fairness and a level playing field,” said Alana Baker, the association’s director of government relations.Airbnb says there are some 80,000 people who offer places to rent in Canada, and they earn on average about $5,500 annually.— Follow @jpress on Twitter.last_img read more

Two Brazilians, a Mexican Arrested for Robbing Bank in Casablanca

Rabat – Two Brazilians men and a Mexican were arrested on Wednesday for their alleged involvement in a robbery case in a bank in Casablanca, Morocco’s largest city.According to H24, the General Directorate of National Security said in a statement on Friday that one of the defendants, a Mexican, was arrested on the scene after seizing a plastic suitcase that an agent of a money transfer company had deposited. The suitcase contained over $2,000.The same source said that the other accomplices managed to flee before they were arrested while trying to leave the country. “The intense police investigations and the transmission of an international arrest warrant against other accomplices led to the arrest on the same day of two Brazilians aged 41 and 34 respectively while trying to leave the country at the Port of Tangier-Med,” the statement said.The suspects have been placed in custody pending the completion of the investigation under the supervision of the competent public prosecutor.© Morocco World News.

Syrian Forces Reclaim Aleppo in Civil War

by Adam BrownRabat – In comments published Thursday, President Assad said that Syrian forces’ victory in Aleppo will be a “big gain”, but will not bring about the end of the civil war.Since 2010 Syria has been in the midst of a bloody civil war and Aleppo has been deeply divided since 2012, split into sections controlled by rebels and sections controlled by the Syrian government. This week, Assad’s troops have been pushing further into the rebel-held part of eastern Aleppo. The conflict has been defined by extensive civilian casualties and aid organizations have been working to provide support to potential evacuees. “More than 30,000 of the estimated 275,000 residents of the besieged eastern part have fled to western Aleppo” (New York Times).  Organizations such as the International Committee for the Red Cross and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent have coordinated to complete an evacuation and relocation that ended Wednesday night.Rebels called for “a five-day humanitarian pause”, but the request has been ignored. Assad has stated that he will no longer consider truce offers, stating that they come when the rebels are in a “difficult spot”. He went on to say that he does not believe that liberating Aleppo, “will be the end of the war”Other governments are working to coordinate a cease fire in order to expedite the process of removing civilians and rebel forces from the city. “Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov…said military experts and diplomats would meet Saturday in Geneva to work out details of the rebels’s exit from Aleppo’s eastern neighborhoods”.Reports indicate that the bombing and shelling operations continue in the face of evacuation attempts. read more

Royal Ballet choreographer appears to ridicule his own stars

first_imgTim Couchman, assistant choreographer The dancers of the Royal Ballet are considered to be among the very best in the world.But when choreographer David Dawson’s latest work at Covent Garden drew poor reviews, those dancers found themselves at the centre of an extraordinary written attack.An online commenter purporting to be Dawson’s choreographic assistant, Tim Couchman, said the failure of the production was down to the Royal Ballet stars with their “inflated” egos, refusal to practise and non-stop moaning behind the scenes. So bad was their behaviour, the comment read, that they should be “shrunken with shame”. Choreographer David Dawson The Royal Ballet's production of David Dawson's The Human Seasons A top-class professional [does not] bicker and moan about things theythink are impossible before they’ve even tried them He went on: “To me, personally, a top-class professional is someone who endeavours to present the art as authentically as possible. They are open to understanding the techniques required to achieve an artist’s particular style and vision, whether they like them or not…”A top-class professional makes the effort to learn the physicality, and musicality, properly and precisely. They observe, listen and practice, and they practice repeatedly until they master that which is strange and difficult [sic]. “They retain the information, come to rehearsals prepared, they focus hard, and deliver the work consistently, without deflecting corrections and coaching advice. They do not bicker and moan about things they think are impossible before they’ve even tried them.”He signed off: “And a top-class professional (not to mention true artist) would never ever be satisfied with scraping though at the last minute, shrunken with shame, knowing they didn’t really do their best.”Only when ALL cast members behave as top-class professionals, can a work of art hope to reveal it’s fragile truth. But when time is tight, when egos are inflated, when hearts are closed and minds are unfocused, all that can happen is the promulgation of lies. And the art is lost, and we will never know.” Tim Couchman, assistant choreographerCredit:Telegraph Choreographer David DawsonCredit:Angela Sterling Dawson is acclaimed in Europe and was the first British choreographer to create a new work for the Mariinsky Ballet. He trained at the Royal Ballet School, as did Couchman, who helps to stage Dawson’s productions around the world.The production in question, The Human Seasons, takes its name from the Keats poem of the same name. It was first staged by Dawson in 2013 and is currently part of a triple bill. The other two works, from different choreographers, were well-received.The principal dancers and soloists taking part include some of the Royal Ballet’s star names: Marianela Nunez, Claire Calvert and Eric Underwood.center_img The Human Seasons performed by the Royal BalletCredit: Alastair Muir The Royal Ballet’s production of David Dawson’s The Human SeasonsCredit:Corbis via Getty Images The Human Seasons performed by the Royal Ballet A top class professional puts the needs of the scene before the needsof the self Critics were unimpressed by the production but the harshest review was on The Arts Desk website, which said the dancers “make a game stab at it, like the top-class professionals they are” but that the production had no redeeming features. “Everything that is vapid and dreadful about contemporary ballet is present and correct,” it said, adding that Calvert had been “manhandled like a sack of flour by six male dancers”.A comment submitted underneath the article at midnight under the name of Tim Couchman, although it could not be verified, said: “As the stager of The Human Seasons, I would like to say that the ballet you saw was not, in truth, The Human Seasons – it was, as you say ‘a game stab at it’. And if you’d been privy to the staging process, your assumption that all the dancers are ‘top-class professionals’ might perhaps have been challenged.” For his part, Dawson said in a tweet – since deleted – that he would be taking his work elsewhere because he was so furious about the reviews.”London critics can be delighted to know that I have decided not to show my work any longer if I can help it,” he wrote. The tweet ended with the hashtag #respectgoesbothways. As the Royal Ballet reeled from the accusations, Dawson issued a conciliatory statement addressed to the dancers and the company’s director, Kevin O’Hare.”Dear dancers of the Royal Ballet, Kevin O’Hare and all his team at Covent Garden,” it read.”I would like you to know that you have my greatest admiration and respect. It has been a true honour and a privilege to work with you and to share the stage with the superb Crystal Pite and Christopher Wheeldon [the other choreographers in the triple bill].”Thank you for your art.”The final performance is on Friday.

Fate of Karnataka government hangs in balance

first_imgNew Delhi/ Bengaluru: The survival of the 14-month-old Congress-JD(S) government in Karnataka hangs precariously on the eve of the trust vote with the Supreme Court on Wednesday holding that the 15 rebel Congress-JD(S) MLAs cannot be compelled to participate in the proceedings of the ongoing Assembly session. As the court order virtually sounded the death knell for Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy in the battle for numbers on the floor of the House, a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi in its order at the same time gave Assembly Speaker K R Ramesh Kumar the freedom to decide on the resignation of the 15 MLAs within such time-frame as considered appropriate by him. Also Read – Dehydrated elephant being given treatment Advertise With Us Locked in an intense face-off with rebel MLAs whose resignation he has refused to accept that would have led to the collapse of the government after being reduced to a minority, Speaker Kumar welcomed the court decision and said he would conduct himself responsibly in accordance with the principles of the Constitution. Hailing the decision, the rebel MLAs camping in Mumbai said there was no question of going back on their resignations from the Assembly or attending the session while Karnataka BJP chief B S Yeddyurappa said Kumaraswamy will have to resign on Thursday when he faces the confidence vote in the Assembly since he has no majority. Also Read – CBI carrying out surprise checks at 150 government departments Advertise With Us Expressing reservations on the order, the Congress said it nullifed the whip and provided “blanket protection” to MLAs who have betrayed public mandate, setting a “terrible judicial precedent”. The court order on pleas by rebel MLAs for a direction to the Speaker to take a decision on their resignations comes a day before the Congress-JD(S) government faces a floor test which will end the suspense over the numbers game triggered by a raft of resignations by lawmakers of the ruling coalition. Advertise With Us While 16 MLAs — 13 from the Congress and three from JD(S) — have resigned, two independent MLAs S Shankar and H Nagesh have withdrawn their support to the coalition government. The ruling coalition’s strength in the House is 117– Congress 78, JD(S) 37, BSP 1, and nominated 1, besides the Speaker. With the support of the two independents, the opposition BJP has 107 MLAs in the 225-member House, including the nominated MLA and Speaker. If the resignations of the 16 MLAs are accepted or if they are not present in the House, the ruling coalition’s tally will be reduced to 101. According to official sources, a nominated member also has the right to vote The apex court bench, also comprising justices Deepak Gupta and Aniruddha Bose, said the Speaker’s discretion in deciding on the MLAs’ resignations should not be fettered by the court’s directions or observations and he should be left free to decide the issue. The apex court also said the Speaker’s decision be placed before it. “We also make it clear that until further orders, the 15 members of the Assembly ought not to be compelled to participate in the proceedings of the ongoing session of the House and an option should be given to them that they can take part in the proceedings or opt to remain out of the same. We order accordingly,” the bench said in its three-page order.last_img read more
