Number of people seeking asylum in Canada at levels not seen since

first_imgOTTAWA – The number of people seeking asylum in Canada is now the highest it’s been since 2009, driven in part by a surge in asylum seekers showing up at the Canada-U.S. border.New statistics released Tuesday by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada show that as of August, 27,440 claims for asylum have been filed in Canada, a peak since record highs of between 36,000 and 33,000 in 2008 and 2009.And the numbers are expected to continue to rise.During a briefing Monday with immigration organizations in New York City, Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen said based on current trends, Canada could see 40,000 claimants by the end of the year, according to Conservative immigration critic Michelle Rempel, who was in the room. Hussen’s office confirmed her account.“Given the global forced displacement and forced migration, this is now a public policy concern,” Rempel said.“Nobody is saying that this is going to stop.”At current levels, the federal and provincial governments are looking at a bill of at least $353.9 million to $548.8 million to process claims and provide the required services — the cost per claim ranges from $12,900 to $20,000, the Immigration Department says.Those numbers don’t take into account the cost of deporting failed claimants, nor the special measures rolled out to manage the sudden summer spike in border arrivals — it’s too early to know that price tag, the department says.Those measures were deployed in July and early August as upwards of 200 people were crossing into Quebec from New York state each day. Officials say the number of arrivals have since come back down.“The numbers fluctuate,” said Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale.“That’s one of the very obvious lessons that the statistics have demonstrated over the last seven or eight months while the situation has developed at the Canadian border.”The full scope of the situation over the summer was reflected in the data released Tuesday — the RCMP intercepted 5,530 people crossing illegally into Quebec in August, up from 2,996 in July.As of August, 13,211 people have been intercepted trying to make a similar journey and while the numbers are highest in Quebec, British Columbia registered a spike of its own last month. There, 102 people were stopped, up from 51 the month before.A dedicated Immigration and Refugee Board team has been seconded to deal with large groups of arrivals claiming asylum from the same countries. The vast majority in Quebec are of Haitian descent; in Manitoba earlier this year, most were Somalian.In B.C., settlement organizations say they saw refugee seekers from dozens of different countries last month, with Afghanistan, Iraq, Colombia, Mexico and Turkey leading the list.The board has been warning for months, however, that they are ill-equipped to manage the ongoing rise in claims without creating lengthy backlogs, given existing budgets and staffing levels.A briefing note obtained by The Canadian Press earlier this year said that without system improvements or additional resources, steadily rising numbers of claims would mean wait times of as long as 11 years by the end of 2021.The head of the IRB said on Twitter Tuesday that the current wait time is 16 months.Even before the surge, the number of claims being added to the board’s backlog was growing by the month, said NDP immigration critic Jenny Kwan.The fact the Liberal government did nothing then — and is doing little now beyond calling for greater efficiency at the board — is a serious issue, Kwan said.“This Liberal government is putting in jeopardy our immigration system.”last_img read more

Sentencing hearing for man who killed Manitoba woman in botched robbery

first_imgWINNIPEG — The best friend of a Manitoba Indigenous woman killed during a botched robbery looked at a man found guilty in the death and asked how a life could be worth only $45.In January, a jury convicted Jason Meilleur of manslaughter in the death of Jeanenne Fontaine.Fontaine was shot and her Winnipeg home set on fire in 2017 when three men came to her house to collect on a drug debt her boyfriend owed.Fontaine was the cousin of Tina Fontaine, a teenager whose body was found three years earlier in the Red River, and whose death fuelled renewed calls for a national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women.Melissa Stevenson told Meilleur’s sentencing hearing that her friend  was struggling with addiction after her cousin’s murder but she had goals to get clean.In her final diary entry read in court, Fontaine wrote that she wanted to get a new place to call home.The Crown is asking that Meilleur be sentenced to 15 years.The defence has not made its submission yet.Two other men have been convicted and sentenced in the woman’s death.

Sprint and TMobile agree to combine in 265 billion deal

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – T-Mobile and Sprint reached a $26.5 billion merger agreement Sunday that would reduce the U.S. wireless industry to three major players — that is, if the Trump administration’s antitrust regulators let the deal go through.The nation’s third- and fourth-largest wireless companies have been considering a combination for years, one that would bulk them up to a similar size as industry giants Verizon and AT&T. But a 2014 attempt fell apart amid resistance from the Obama administration.The combined company, to be called T-Mobile, would have about 127 million customers. Consumers worry a less crowded telecom field could result in higher prices, while unions are concerned about potential job losses.In a conference call with Wall Street analysts, Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure acknowledged that getting regulatory approval is “the elephant in the room,” and one of the first things the companies did after sending out the deal’s news release was to call Ajit Pai, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission.The companies stressed that they plan to have more employees following the combination, particularly in rural areas, than they do as stand-alone companies now.They also emphasized that the deal would help accelerate their development of faster 5G wireless networks and ensure that the U.S. doesn’t cede leadership on the technology to China.And they said the combination would allow them to better compete not only with AT&T and Verizon but also with Comcast and others as the wireless, broadband and video industries converge.“This isn’t a case of going from 4 to 3 wireless companies — there are now at least 7 or 8 big competitors in this converging market,” T-Mobile chief executive John Legere said in a statement. He would be the CEO of the combined company.The all-stock deal values each share of Sprint at slightly more than 0.10 T-Mobile shares. Deutsche Telekom, T-Mobile’s parent, would own about 42 per cent of the combined company. Japan’s SoftBank, which controls Sprint, would own 27 per cent, and the remainder would be held by the public.The companies said they expect the deal to close by the first half of 2019 and would result in about $6 billion in annual cost savings.Investors have been anticipating a deal like this for some time. In addition to the thwarted attempt three years ago, the two companies were poised to combine in October, but the deal was called off after what analysts said was a disagreement over control of the combined company.The deal will have to be reviewed by the Justice Department and the FCC.National carriers had not been able to get a deal through under President Barack Obama. But the FCC in September deemed the wireless market “competitive” for the first time since 2009, which some analysts say could make it easier to present a deal.The 5G aspirations are at the heart of the agreement, and the new technology could allow companies to provide faster service to people’s homes.Sprint’s Claure likened going from 4G to 5G to switching from black-and-white television to colour. The combined company plans to invest up to $40 billion in its network in the first three years, which executives said would drive more hiring and better service for customers.Sprint has a lot of debt and has posted a string of annual losses. It has cut costs and made itself more attractive to customers, BTIG Research analyst Walter Piecyk said, but hasn’t invested enough in its network and doesn’t have enough airwave rights for quality service in rural areas.T-Mobile, meanwhile, has been on a yearslong streak of adding customers. After the government nixed AT&T’s attempt to buy the company in 2011, T-Mobile led the way in many consumer-friendly changes, such as ditching two-year contracts and bringing back unlimited data plans.Consumers are paying less for cellphone service thanks to T-Mobile’s influence on the industry and the resulting price wars.Verizon and AT&T have been expanding their video-content businesses, while cable companies have been moving into wireless. That allows a single company to combine home and wireless internet and use content to support the communications businesses.Comcast, the cable giant that finished buying NBCUniversal in 2013, offers customers wireless service by reselling access to Verizon’s network. So does another dominant cable company, Charter.last_img read more

Iraqi people must control electoral process UN official

A United Nations elections expert just back from Iraq emphasized today that the country’s people must have control of the polling process, and that a secure environment and adequate resources were essential to the balloting’s success.According to Iraq’s Transitional Administrative Law (TAL), elections are set to take place no later than 31 January 2005. Voting would be held for the councils at the governorate level, the National Assembly of Kurdistan and the Iraqi National Assembly.Speaking to reporters in New York, Carina Perelli, Director of the UN Electoral Assistance Division, outlined the process of creating “a totally new, independent electoral authority” that would enjoy legitimacy among the Iraqi people and have full autonomy, including the ability to manage its own budget.She welcomed the Iraqi Governing Council’s recent full endorsement of the UN’s recommendations in this regard, which were also accepted by the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) as well as all social and political actors contacted by the UN.A board of seven commissioners plus one director-general will head the institution, Ms. Perelli said, stressing that those individuals must be independent.The UN mission that she led to Iraq last month heard “the outcry of the population in terms of having more participation in the decision-making processes and being more involved,” Ms. Perelli said.In response, the UN had created a process allowing the community to nominate the seven individuals. Once the process of nominations is completed, the UN will undertake a technical evaluation of the candidates, followed immediately by the establishment of a shortlist of 20 names for the commissioners and five names for the position of director. Those people would then be interviewed.The UN will also name an international commissioner, but that person would have a “voice but no vote because this has to be a fully Iraqi process,” she said.Concerning security, she acknowledged that “there has been a deterioration of conditions in Iraq,” but pointed out that “once you launch an electoral process, particularly if the citizenry starts to believe and take ownership in the process, then the capacity of what we call ‘political security’ – which is basically people fighting for the right to have that election – also occurs.”If all these decisions are taken in open discussion with the communities and if people feel that basically their interests have also been taken into consideration it might affect the security situation,” she observed.”Of course, elections under the gun, and elections with bullets and mortars and shelling, are not two things that go together hand-in-hand – that is obvious,” she added.She said the overall cost of elections was currently projected at $250 million to $260 million, but the figure would be adjusted depending on the decisions of the independent electoral authority. read more

Carlos Hyde lightens Braxton Millers rushing load for Ohio State

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Ohio State has had one elite runner since the beginning of the season. Now, it looks like the Buckeyes might have two. Braxton Miller carried the majority of the load for the Buckeye offense through OSU’s first five games, tallying 577 yards on the ground while adding 933 yards in the air. The sophomore quarterback was by far the biggest threat in OSU’s running game. Miller carried the ball 90 times through five games, with no other Buckeye totaling more than 40 carries in that same span. The carries didn’t come easily for Miller, though, as the now-Heisman candidate took a number of hits, some of which caused him to miss action. The bumps and bruises Miller attained had many people – including players and coaches within the Buckeye program – calling for someone on the OSU offense, specifically a running back, to give Miller some relief. Carlos Hyde answered that call over the last two games. The OSU junior running back has run for 296 yards on 50 attempts in the Buckeyes’ most recent two games. Hyde followed up a 28 carry, 140-yard performance against Nebraska on Oct. 6 with a 22 carry, 156-yard outing at Indiana Saturday. He has six total touchdowns – five rushing and one receiving – over the past two games. Hyde, who seemingly broke at least one tackle on every run he had Saturday, gave the credit for his burst onto the running game scene to the Buckeyes’ offensive line after OSU’s 52-49 victory against the Hoosiers. “You’ve got to thank those guys up front. They did their job. When they go, we go. So it was going pretty good today,” Hyde said. Hyde has taken some of the running-game load off Miller’s shoulders with his recent performances, but the Buckeyes’ quarterback is still running the ball. He’s running quite a bit, actually, and he should be, according to first-year coach Urban Meyer and Buckeye players. Miller totaled 23 rushing attempts for 149 yards and a score Saturday after running for 186 yards on 16 carries against Nebraska. He remains OSU’s most talented runner, according to his teammates. The difference between now and the first five games of the season, though, is that OSU’s rushing attack has gone from a single-handed, almost-heroic one-man effort to a two-headed monster. And that’s a major positive for Meyer, who had little to take away from the Buckeyes’ narrow victory at Indiana Saturday. “We are 7-0 and we ran the ball for 350 yards and had two guys really haul it running the ball (Saturday),” Meyer said. OSU didn’t get off to a great start against Indiana, as the Buckeyes trailed, 14-10, midway through the second quarter. The Buckeyes took control of the game by halftime and brought a 24-14 lead into the break. The OSU defense collapsed in the second half, allowing 35 points. It was runs from Miller and Hyde that allowed OSU to hang on to win. Miller had a 67-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Hyde added two scores of his own – the first, a 14-yard shovel pass, pushed OSU’s lead to 14 points and the second stretched the lead to 18. “They started off slow. But they came back, and came back in a flurry,” Meyer said. “The good thing is that I saw possession of time around 36 minutes. There are some real strong positives in (the running game) right now.” There are not only positives, but also historic numbers. Saturday night marked just the fifth time in OSU history – and the first time in 37 years – in which two players had 100-plus yard performances in back-to-back games. The last Buckeye players to match Miller’s and Hyde’s totals over the past two games were former running backs Archie Griffin and Pete Johnson in 1975. It’s probably safe to say that OSU has its running game rolling right now, and it is something that Buckeye players say will be very hard for opposing defenses to stop. “It’s weird. With coach Meyer, everyone thought we’d be throwing the ball everywhere but I would say we probably have one of the best rushing attacks in the country,” said OSU senior wide receiver Jake Stoneburner. “With Carlos and (redshirt sophomore running back Rod Smith) coming along pretty well, and then with Braxton probably being the best runner in the country, I’d say people have a lot to worry about with our rushing attack.” OSU is scheduled to return to action Saturday at noon against Purdue at Ohio Stadium. read more

Is Galway West TD Noel Grealish joining Fianna Fáil

first_imgFIANNA FÁIL HAS denied that senior figures in the party have approached the former Progressive Democrat and current independent TD Noel Grealish about joining the its ranks.However, Grealish himself said he would be making no comment when specifically asked this week if he was interested in joining the country’s main opposition party.Talk of the former PD joining Fianna Fáil arose out of a recent report in The Connacht Tribune that senior figures within Fianna Fáil were to approach Grealish in the hope that he would join the party.But a party spokesperson said this week: “While we are currently welcoming membership applications from across the country, there is no truth whatsoever in media reports suggesting that independent TD Noel Grealish has been asked by ‘senior figures’ to join the Fianna Fáil party.”When contacted by TheJournal.ie, Grealish described talk of him joining Fianna Fail as “pure speculation” and said “no” when asked if he had been approached by the party.But when asked if he would be interested in joining Fianna Fáil he added: “I am making absolutely no comment whatsoever on that. I am elected as an independent and I am working as an independent.”Previous FF talksGrealish was first elected in Galway West in 2002, replacing the long-serving Bobby Molloy, and was one of only two Progressive Democrats who was returned at the 2007 general election along with former health minister Mary Harney.Towards the end of that year he admitted to having had discussions with Fianna Fáil about the possibility of joining the party but he subsequently decided to stay with the PDs becoming the party leader in March 2009 until it disbanded in November of that same year.As an independent he supported the Fianna Fáil-Green government until September 2010 when he withdrew his support over health cuts.Running as an independent in 2011 he came fourth in a five-seat constituency with 10 per cent of first preference votes. Grealish is among only three independents in the Dáil who is not in the Technical Group.A Fianna Fáil spokesperson added: “Our organisation in Galway West is one of the most energetic and fastest growing in the country and it will be working hard, along with its colleague organisations across the country, to increase its electoral presence at both local and national levels through strong local community activity and effective representation with candidates drawn from the local organisation.”Video: ‘I’m not ruling anything out’ – Micheál Martin on Fine Gael or Sinn Féin coalitionlast_img read more

Attorneygeneral tries to calm waters surrounding email leaks

Attorneygeneral tries to calm waters surrounding email leaks

first_imgAttorney-General Costas Clerides said on Friday there was no reason for confrontation with journalists over the controversial investigation into the leaked emails of a senior state attorney who used her personal account to correspond with the Russian attorney-general’s office regarding extradition cases.The investigation saw police questioning journalists, prompting an outcry among the media.On Friday, Clerides met a delegation from the journalists’ union who raised the issue of terminating the probe or completing the procedure as soon as possible and as discretely as possible because it hurt the island’s image as a state where press freedom and freedom of expression were respected.“Unfortunately, a picture of conflict has been created between the investigating authorities and the legal service with media workers,” the attorney-general said. “There is no reason in my view for a confrontation.”The emails had been posted on the internet after someone apparently hacked Eleni Loizidou’s account.

advance could one day provide a powerful tool for the military to detect explosives from a distance and even for astronomers to probe alien worlds for life “It’s a new approach that has never been seen before” says physicist Jérme Kasparian of the University of Geneva in Switzerland who was not involved in the study The technology leverages a well-established physical phenomenon called Raman scattering When light shines on a compound the compound’s molecules scatter a tiny fraction of the incoming photons around changing the photon’s energy level in the process The shift in energy which changes the frequency of the outgoing light varies for every compound With a spectrometer an instrument that measures the frequency of light scientists can observe this shift and identify the chemical in question Previously scientists have used lasers to remotely identify atoms in chemical samples but with Raman technology they would be able to identify chemical compounds directly The problem is that Raman scattering produces only a very weak signal—only about one in every 10 trillion photons that enter the compound is scattered So to make Raman spectroscopy work on a distant target researchers would need an enormously powerful laser to get a detectable signal back Physicist Marlan Scully of Texas A&M University College Station and his colleagues have sought to get around this problem by exploiting a relatively newly discovered phenomenon called random Raman lasing When one shines a very intense beam of light at a highly disordered material such as a powdered chemical the scattered photons can stimulate more photons to be emitted by the material in a similar way to how a laser works This produces a brighter scattered signal which in theory should be easier to detect from afar The Texas team shone intense laser pulses encompassing a broad spectrum of light on samples of powdered chemical compounds To simulate detecting the scattered light at a distance the researchers bounced the signal back and forth 13 times between mirrors so that it covered a distance of 400 meters before it entered the spectrometer With this approach the researchers could generate enough random Raman lasing in the samples to produce a signal that could be detected 400 meters away and could reliably identify ammonium nitrate and sodium nitrate as they report online today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Both chemicals appear as white powders to the naked eye and emit Raman signals that are near identical in frequency The former is a harmless compound whereas the latter can be used to produce explosives The result of the experiment is “impressive” Kasparian says “This is a clean demonstration that measurement at a few hundred meters [away] is possible” But Anupam Misra of the University of Hawaii Manoa who was also not involved in the research says it would be more convincing if they had made a direct measurement from 400 meters rather than using relay mirrors to simulate the distance In this experiment because the sample is placed close to the mirrors and the spectrometer the Raman signal could have entered the spectrometer without traveling the full 400 meters he says Both Misra and Kasparian point out that to apply the technology in real life scientists still need to solve the other half of the question: building a laser powerful enough to focus an intense beam on a sample from hundreds of meters away The laser in the current experiment was just 85 meters from the samples Today’s technology allows a laser beam to focus over a distance of 100 meters at most Kasparian says If scientists do build such a laser the technology can have broad applications in agriculture environmental science and biomedical science In agriculture for example farmers could potentially fly laser-equipped planes over the fields to detect ammonia level in the soil and thus determine how much fertilizer to apply “The great thing about this part of science … is that … we are learning about ways in which light and matter interact in novel and fascinating ways and it has many applications” Scully says “It’s the best of both worlds”
