Zimmer’s motion against UN Firearms Regime debated in House of Commons

first_imgPrince George-Peace River MP Bob Zimmer was in the House of Commons yesterday debating his Private Members’ Motion on the UN Firearms Regime. The motion is aimed at discouraging the government from adopting a United Nations resolution on firearms.According to a media release from Zimmer the UN resolution contains a clause asking State Parties to have imported firearms marked with an identifying code of the country of origin. Zimmer’s opposition to the resolution stems from the costs that would be created, and the potential of adding another form to the firearm registry.In a release Zimmer said, “I have always stood up for the rights of law-abiding gun owners and I firmly believe that Canada already has measures in place to protect public safety that are far superior to this model offered by the United Nations. Our government kept its 17-year-old promise by scrapping the long-gun registry. My intention in tabling this motion is to ensure that any door that could re-open the long-gun registry remains firmly closed.”- Advertisement -He added the UN resolution is designed to “needlessly target” gun owners in Canada who follow the law, and as such he put forward his motion against it.last_img read more

Italian league probe Matuidi racist abuse claims

The chanting reportedly came from all three levels of the ‘Curva Verde’ occupied by Inter Milan fans and took place 55 minutes into the game, which Juventus won 3-2 with two goals in the final three minutes.But before any ruling can be made officials, in accordance with rules governing discrimination in the Italian game, have to gather data to ascertain how many fans were involved.“We must acquire the data, even an approximate estimate, on the occupancy of the sectors involved, as well as receive confirmation that the chants heard came from all three sectors of the Curva Verde, as indicated in the report,” Serie A said in a statement.The punishment will depend on how many fans took part and how loud the chanting was, it added.Midfielder Matuidi has been the victim of similar abuse twice this season, by fans in Verona and Cagliari.Verona were handed a 20,000 euro ($24,000) fine and a suspended partial stadium ban, but Cagliari were not punished although the club issued an apology to the 31-year-old French player.Matuidi, who has 64 caps for France, joined Juventus before the start of the current season from Paris Saint-Germain and has scored three times for the Italian champions.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Conte to sue Chelsea over delayed sacking

first_img0Shares0000Antonio Conte is reported to be set to sue Chelsea over his sacking © AFP/File / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Jul 20 – Antonio Conte is set to take legal action against Chelsea over damage to his career and loss of future earnings following his sacking by the Premier League club, according to reports on Friday.Conte is believed to be furious Chelsea made him return to pre-season training before finally dismissing him last week to make way for the arrival of new boss Maurizio Sarri. The Italian, who spent just two years with the Blues, was widely reported to be facing the sack for much of last season after the breakdown in his relationship with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and the club’s hierarchy.But Conte was made to wait 55 days after Chelsea’s FA Cup final win over Manchester United before he was axed.After winning the Premier League in his first season at Stamford Bridge, Conte presided over a dismal collapse last term, with Chelsea finishing fifth and missing out on a place in the Champions League.Conte is believed to have received a £9 million pay-off for the year he had remaining on his Chelsea contract, yet the Times reports the former Juventus coach is keen to get additional compensation.That could trigger an ugly legal battle, with Conte’s lawyers reportedly set to claim the west London club cost their client a year of his career, as all the top management jobs in Europe have been filled.Real Madrid were believed to be interested in Conte after Zinedine Zidane left in May, while the Italy job was also available earlier this year.The Times also reported Chelsea have threatened to withhold Conte’s contract settlement due to repeated criticism of his employers over their failure to back his transfer demands.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
