OTTAWA – Demanding a breath sample from a motorist is no different than asking for their licence and registration, Canada’s justice minister argued Thursday as the federal Liberal government defended its proposed new crackdown on impaired driving.Jody Wilson-Raybould tabled a so-called “charter statement” in the House of Commons explaining why the government believes the new measures are permissible under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.“The Supreme Court of Canada has recognized as reasonable the authority, under provincial law and common law, of police officers to stop vehicles at random to ensure that drivers are licensed and insured, that the vehicle is mechanically fit and to check for sobriety,” Wilson-Raybould’s statement says.“The information revealed from a breath sample is, like the production of a driver’s licence, simply information about whether a driver is complying with one of the conditions imposed in the highly regulated contexts of driving.”Bill C-46, which includes new powers for police and harsher penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, was introduced in the Commons last month alongside the government’s long-awaited plan to legalize marijuana for recreational use.The new mandatory alcohol screening measures would mean police could demand a breath sample from any driver they lawfully stop — even if they had no suspicion the person had been drinking before being pulled over.The roadside test itself could not lead to a charge, but it would allow the police to continue investigating and to subject the driver to further tests.The bill would also allow police to demand a saliva sample from a driver if they reasonably suspect the person has drugs in their body, such as by noticing unusually red eyes, abnormal speech patterns or the telltale scent of marijuana.The proposed legislation has raised eyebrows among some criminal lawyers, who believe it will be challenged in court.The statement outlines why the Liberal government considers the new powers to be consistent with charter guarantees about search and seizure, as well as life, liberty and security of the person.It points out, for example, that while the bill would eliminate the need for reasonable suspicion of drinking and driving, it would still only apply if the driver was lawfully stopped in the first place.The statement does come with a major caveat: “A statement is not a legal opinion on the constitutionality of a bill.”The statement also says Bill C-46 would help the Liberal government achieve its “compelling objective” of cutting down on drinking and driving. Currently, it can be difficult for officers to identify a driver who should be administered a breath test.“It would reduce the impact of this kind of human error,” it says. “It would also increase the deterrent effect of roadside stops by eliminating the perception that motorists could avoid having to give a sample by hiding their impairment.”Research done in other countries that have taken a similar approach, including Australia, New Zealand and Ireland, has shown a substantial reduction in alcohol-related accidents and even deaths, the government argues.Anthony Moustacalis, president of the Criminal Lawyers’ Association, said he is concerned the new law could lead to a higher number of random stops of visible minorities.“I think the one area of constitutional attack would be that, given the developing statistics on subconscious racism by the police, or unconscious racism, and the increased empirical data on misuse of random stops by police for visible and other minorities.”Robert Solomon, national director of legal policy for MADD Canada, said people already have to go through mandatory screening in order to do all sorts of things.“Mandatory alcohol screening serves exactly the same protective purpose as airport, border and courtroom searches, but is far more effective and addresses a far greater risk,” said Solomon, who is also a law professor at Western University in London, Ont.— Follow @smithjoanna on Twitter

By Jorge BarreraAPTN National NewsOTTAWA-The Conservative government has asked the U.S. to allow the placement of a Canadian border post on American soil, according to a U.S. embassy cable recently released by WikiLeaks, giving the clearest indication to date that Ottawa has decided to permanently shutter its customs office on Akwesasne Mohawk territory.The Canada Border Services Agency pulled its guards and officials from the customs office on Cornwall Island on May 31, 2009. The decision came after the Akwesasne community said they would not allow the scheduled arming of border guards the following day. The situation shut down the Canada-U.S. border crossing, which sits between about 120 kilometres west of Montreal for more than a month, for six weeks.During the shut-down, former public safety minister Peter Van Loan told U.S. Ambassador David Jacobson that Canada wanted to move its border post to New York State, according to a cable from the U.S. embassy in Ottawa dated June 10, 2009.“Van Loan raised Canada’s strong desire for a unique shared port of entry on U.S. soil to replace Canada’s Cornwall Island crossing on Akwesasne Mohawk territory,” said the cable, titled, Ambassador Begins Meeting Canadian Leaders. “Van Loan acknowledged that it was a “big ask” and that he and (Department of Homeland Security) Secretary (Janet) Napolitano would be discussing it again in November.”The cableDownload (PDF, Unknown)The Canada-U.S. border line cuts through the St. Lawrence River off the south-side shore of Cornwall Island.Akwesasne straddles the Quebec-Ontario-New York State borders.The CBSA has since set up a make-shift border post at the foot of the bridge linking Cornwall, Ont., and Cornwall Island, which sits on the St. Lawrence River. The federal government has so far refused to reveal what their long-term plans are for the border crossing.The Canadian government drew public criticism from federal U.S. politicians during the border-crossing shut down which impacted the northern New York State economy. U.S. Democratic Senator Charles Schumer called the decision to shut the border “short-sighted.”U.S. embassy officials in Ottawa also criticized the Canadian government for mishandling the ongoing issues in and around Akwesasne in general, according to a second cable sent from the U.S. embassy in Ottawa a month later.“Canada has so far failed to devise a lasting resolution of the CBSA/Akwesasne dispute, sidestepping the key issues of sovereignty and effective law enforcement,” said the cable, dated July 30, 2009. “The sensitive file appears still to lack an integrated government response, as well as some tough political choices that could potentially alienate either the larger Canadian public, or the First Nations.”The cable also noted comments by Akwesasne Grand Chief Mike Mitchell who said on July 21that the removal of the border post “was the first step in creating a form of Mohawk sovereignty.”Mitchell, according to the cable, said that the next step was to draw the international border around Mohawk territory.Indian Affairs officials, however, downplayed the comments to U.S. officials, saying that while Mitchell’s career had been marked by a “continuous and aggressive pursuit” of sovereignty, he was prone to “certain rhetorical flourish,” the cable said. The Indian Affairs officials also said no one should be “rattled by his declarations,”The cable goes on to state that Indian Affairs officials believed Assembly of First Nations national Chief Shawn Atleo’s election that summer would have no impact on the status-quo.“(Indian Affairs) officials predicted that the AFN would continue to focus on poverty alleviation and economic development, rather than sovereignty,” the cable email@example.com
27 September 2011Morocco has reiterated to the United Nations that it is ready to intensify talks to resolve the dispute over the Western Sahara on the basis of autonomy. “Such an audacious and realistic initiative takes into consideration, within the framework of our national integrity and territorial sovereignty, the norms of international law and goes beyond restrictive interpretations that can only nurture the stalemate situation,” Moroccan Foreign Minister Taïb Fassi Fihri told the General Assembly yesterday.“Morocco reiterates its full readiness to pursue and intensify the negotiation process to find a consensual political solution to the artificial regional dispute over the Moroccan Sahara, on the basis of the autonomy initiative that the Security Council has considered, through six successive resolutions, as serious and credible,” he said.“It is time for each party to live up to its responsibilities, particularly in light of the events occurring in the region, to work seriously and in good faith in order to reach a final political compromise to this artificial regional dispute, to meet the aspirations of our brothers in theTindouf (Algeria) camps, where they are deprived from the most basic human rights.”Fighting between Morocco and the Frente Polisario broke out in Western Sahara after the Spanish colonial administration ended in 1976.In 2004 the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) launched a strictly humanitarian and non-political programme of family visits in support of refugees living in camps near Tindouf and their families in the territory of Western Sahara.In a bilateral meeting with Mr. Fihri, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon encouraged Morocco to pursue efforts in Western Sahara negotiations to achieve concrete progress and expressed his support for the implementation of confidence-building measures between the parties.In his speech the minister also said Morocco had worked relentlessly to activate bilateral relations with Algeria through ministerial visits and hoped this would lead to a comprehensive normalization between the two countries, including the opening of terrestrial borders.Foreign Minister Mourad Medelci of AlgeriaAlgerian Foreign Minister Mourad Medelci told the Assembly his country reaffirmed its full support to Mr. Ban’s efforts over the Western Sahara dispute.“In effect, everything must be done to advance the path of dialogue and negotiation in order to allow the Sahraoui people to freely express their right to self-determination,” he said. “I call on the two parties, Morocco and the Frente Polisario, to show a spirit of responsibility to resolve this conflict which, alas, has lasted all too long.” In a bilateral meeting Mr. Ban thanked the minister for Algeria’s engagement in the negotiating process.

THE HEAD OF RTÉ News and Current Affairs has said that he is satisfied with the overall €167,000 cost of covering the resignation of Pope Benedict and election of a new Pope earlier this year.The bill for covering the two events was disclosed by Kevin Bakhurst in a speech to the Public Relations Institute of Ireland conference yesterday. Bakhurst said the cost was €100,000 less than the bill for covering the 2005 change of Pope.The cost takes in the resignation of Pope Benedict on 11 February, the Papal Conclave on 12 and 13 March and the election of Pope Francis on 13 March as well as his inauguration six days later and covers extended news programmes on television and radio as well as online coverage.He said: “There were five days of major events; the coverage of those, and the news stories in between, commanded huge audiences. The costs are not small but, given the level of public interest and the international significance, are justifiable.”The former head of the BBC News Channel said it was “crucial” that RTÉ provided “world-class coverage of major news stories” and particularly of events that have “such a direct impact on Ireland and many of our audience”.Bakhurst said that a third of the figure was used to pay for satellite feeds out of Vatican City and the provision of satellite trucks and engineering.The remainder of the cost was for freelance crewing in Rome, the rental of broadcasting workspace which included live positions for TV and radio as well as flights, hotels and subsistence for RTÉ staff.Bakhurst added: “I’m satisfied that this coverage was achieved at a cost competitive price with the public interest served in tandem on a range of channels and platforms. ”Read: RTÉ contributed €384 million to Irish economy in one yearRead: RTÉ defends coverage of the ‘Lowry Tapes’

Instead, the nation’s leader, Hon Dr Rufus Ewing, who stunned most in the room with his remarks said he will bring a motion to the House of Assembly to repeal the CFO. Hon Ewing said Stephen Turnball, current CFO has overstayed his welcome, that he should have been gone six months ago, but the British have broken their promise, and to the Overseas Territories Attorneys General, he slammed the British for being anything but honorable. “Dishonorable actions by the FCO, whom I now advise in turn to beware of the scrutiny and the spotlight of the world at large, should they continue to treat this nation in a dishonorable manner.” – Hon. Dr. Rufus EwingUK Solicitor General, Hon Robert Buckland the first British Minister to visit in the four years of the 2012 elected PNP Administration was chided for being the only one and sat grim faced as he listened to the scathing remarks and impassioned tone of Dr. Ewing. The Premier said the UK has been high handed, over reaching, over bearing and under concerned about what the TCI public needs despite the TCI meeting its obligation to pay off the $170 million UK bail-out loan.“Our right to manage our own affairs continue to be trampled upon by the UK government. And despite our successes, her majesty’s government has willfully and dishonestly failed to uphold their end of this agreement.” – Hon.

TONGCHANG-RI, North Korea (AP) — North Korean space officials have moved all three stages of a long-range rocket into position for a controversial launch, vowing Sunday to push ahead with their plan in defiance of international warnings against violating a ban on missile activity.The Associated Press was among foreign news agencies allowed a firsthand look at preparations under way at the coastal Sohae Satellite Station in northwestern North Korea.North Korea announced plans last month to launch an observation satellite using a three-stage rocket during mid-April celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the birth of North Korean founder Kim Il Sung. The U.S., Japan, Britain and other nations have urged North Korea to cancel the launch, warning that firing the long-range rocket would violate U.N. resolutions and North Korea’s promise to refrain from engaging in nuclear and missile activity.North Korea maintains that the launch is a scientific achievement intended to improve the nation’s faltering economy by providing detailed surveys of the countryside.“Our country has the right and also the obligation to develop satellites and launching vehicles,” Jang Myong Jin, general manager of the launch facility, said during a tour, citing the U.N. space treaty. “No matter what others say, we are doing this for peaceful purposes.”Experts say the Unha-3 rocket slated for liftoff between April 12 and 16 could also test long-range missile technology that might be used to strike the U.S. and other targets.
US president Donald Trump speaks during the Public Safety Medal of Valor Awards Ceremony in the East Room of the White House on Tuesday in Washington, DC.Faced with an outpouring of grief and anger over a deadly school shooting in Florida, US president Donald Trump on Tuesday threw his support behind moves to ban “bump stocks”-an accessory that can turn a semi-automatic weapon into an automatic one.Trump also said school safety was a “top priority” for his administration and he would be holding meetings on the subject this week and also next week, when he holds talks with governors from all 50 US states.Calls to ban bump stocks have been mounting since Stephen Paddock, a retired accountant, used them on several of his weapons to kill 58 concertgoers in Las Vegas in October 2017 in the deadliest mass shooting in recent US history.Although the former student who shot dead 17 people in Florida last week did not have bump stocks on his gun, there has been a renewed focus on the devices because outlawing them is a rare point of agreement between Democrats, some Republicans and the powerful National Rifle Association (NRA) gun lobby.Dozens of shooting survivors plan to speak with lawmakers about gun control and school safety Wednesday at the state Capitol in Tallahassee.Less than a week after the shooting, the Florida state House of Representatives rejected a ban on assault weapons and large capacity magazines in a 36-71 vote, during a session that opened with a prayer for the people killed in the tragedy.Trump-who received strong backing from the NRA during his White House run-said he had signed a memorandum “directing the attorney general to propose regulations to ban all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns.”He said he expected them to be finalized “very soon.”“We cannot merely take actions that make us feel like we are making a difference,” Trump said at a White House event to honor 12 Americans for heroism. “We must actually make a difference.“We must move past cliches and tired debates and focus on evidence-based solutions and security measures that actually work,” he said. “We must do more to protect our children.”Trump said he would meet this week with students, local leaders, and members of law enforcement to develop “concrete steps” to “secure our schools, safeguard our students, and protect our communities.”“This includes implementing common sense security measures and addressing mental health issues,” he said, “including better coordination between federal and state law enforcement to take swift action when there are warning signs.”Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz, 19, had a history of troubling behavior and a person close to him warned the FBI five weeks before the shooting that he was a threat-but no action was taken.Parkland students take actionCruz legally bought the gun he used in the attack-an AR-15-style semi-automatic rifle-and the White House said it would consider options to raise the age for such purchases.“I think that’s certainly something that’s on the table for us to discuss and that we expect to come up over the next couple of weeks,” spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters.About 100 students at the Parkland high school where the shooting took place on 14 February were meanwhile heading to Tallahassee, the Florida state capital, to call for stricter gun control at a rally Wednesday.Many of the students who survived the shooting have vowed to make the tragedy a turning point in America’s deadlocked debate on gun control.They are planning a march on Washington next month and they earned $1 million in pledges from Hollywood A-listers George Clooney and his human rights lawyer wife Amal, plus Oprah Winfrey.The “March for Our Lives” is scheduled to take place on March 24, with sister rallies planned across the country.“Amal and I are so inspired by the courage and eloquence of these young men and women from Stoneman Douglas High School,” Clooney said in a statement, pledging $500,000 to help fund the event.“Our family will be there on 24 March to stand side by side with this incredible generation of young people from all over the country.”Winfrey then tweeted: “George and Amal, I couldn’t agree with you more. I am joining forces with you and will match your $500,000 donation.”The US Congress is deadlocked on the gun control debate, accomplishing nothing since the October shooting in Las Vegas.Americans support stricter gun laws by a 66 percent to 31 per cent margin, according to a poll released on Tuesday by Quinnipiac University.It described the margin as “the highest level of support” for stricter gun control since it began surveys on the question in 2008.
At least 18 people were killed and 54 others injured in rain-related incidents in different areas of Pakistan’s northwestern region on Saturday, local media and officials said.Local administrative of the country’s northwest Bajaur Agency said that at least 10 people died and 20 others sustained injuries as hours-long heavy rain and storm wreaked havoc in different areas of the region bordering Afghanistan, reports BSS quoting Xinhua.Emergency has been declared in Bajaur and the Pakistan Army, local administration and tribal people have launched rescue activities in the agency.According to local media reports, at least four women lost their lives and 12 others sustained wounds when their vehicle slipped due to heavy rain and hit into a military truck in Lower Dir area of northwest Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.Two separate road accidents in different regions of northwest Swat district and Khyber Agency killed two persons and left 22 others injured in heavy rain and storm.Two women lost their lives when the roof of their house collapsed in the northwest Mohmand Agency tribal region, the reports said.Governor of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Iqbal Zafar Jhagra expressed grief over the loss of lives and asked the authorities concerned to provide best available medical treatment to the injured as well as to increase the rescue efforts in the affected areas.
Costa Rican scientists have finished construction on the first Central American satellite, which will be launched into space for a carbon emissions project.The satellite, named Project Irazú in honor of one of Costa Rican’s iconic volcanoes, is now ready to send to the Kyutech Technological Institute in Japan, where it will undergo flight tests before its launch in 2018.The device was built by the Central American Aeronautics and Space Association (ACAE) and the Costa Rican Technological Institute (TEC), which announced the results of the project at a press conference.“This is a historic day for [Costa Rica] and Central America,” said ACAE president Carlos Alvarado. “Our intention is to develop space technology to promote peace and create prosperity in the world.” AFP Photo / Ezequiel BecerraFour TEC engineers tested the systems and assembly of the satellite at a facility provided by MOOG Medical at El Coyol Industrial Park, west of San José.“Once the satellite reaches the Kyutech Institute, it will undergo studies that simulate the extreme conditions of launch and orbit in the most realistic way possible, in order to ensure optimal functioning in space,” said project manager Luis Diego Monge.The CubeSat1U satellite was developed to help Costa Rican scientists gather information about the country’s efforts to mitigate carbon emissions.It will connect to a TEC station in the northern canton of San Carlos. Sensors to monitor tree growth will connect via antenna to the satellite twice per day when it passes over Costa Rica.

Industry Reacts to Hurricane Irma Hurricane Irma, the biggest hurricane recorded in the Atlantic Basin, hit the Florida Keys Sunday morning leaving a path of destruction behind it.To combat storm damage, President Trump signed a $15.3 billion disaster relief package into law Friday that will suspend the U.S. borrowing limit and extend the National Flood Insurance Program through December 8, 2017.The House approved the package of bills Friday morning in a 316-90 vote in which The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Community Development Block Grant program will each receive $7.4 billion of the $15.3 billion. The remaining $450 million will support the Small Business Administration’s disaster loan program.The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and state bank regulators plan to assist financial institutions that are in the Irma affected areas. To help those institutions meet the financial services needs of their communities, they have provided guidelines for a number of services such as lending, investments, and temporary banking facilities.Additionally, Wells Fargo President and CEO Tim Sloan announced that the company is in the process of deploying Mobile Response Units to areas affected by Hurricane Harvey.“… Our thoughts are also with everyone now in the path of Hurricane Irma. Our teams on the ground and across the country are closely monitoring the new storm, and we will deliver the same payment, fee relief, and on-the-ground support to customers in impacted communities after Irma passes,” Sloan said.For those affected by Irma, Freddie Mac recommends to reach out to your mortgage company as soon as possible, register for disaster assistances at the federal (FEMA) and state levels, contact your insurance agents, and document to your home and belongings.To see details of the bill, including video coverage, click here.To see the guidelines for financial institutions, click here.
