Metis mans lawyer says he was wronged – but not by me

first_img(Clayton Boucher. Submitted photo)Kenneth JacksonAPTN NewsAn Alberta lawyer representing a Metis man that had his drug possession conviction overturned last month denies he knew the so-called drugs were in fact baking soda when his client pleaded guilty.APTN News reported Tuesday the RCMP, the Crown and Clayton Boucher’s lawyer, Leighton Grey, were told the test results came back negative on suspected cocaine before Boucher pleaded guilty on May 30.“I did not learn until after Mr. Boucher pleaded guilty that the alleged drugs were buff (baking soda),” wrote Grey, who is himself a First Nations man, late Tuesday after reading APTN’s story published earlier that day.However, Alberta Crown prosecutor Erwin Schulz said in an email last month to the Law Society of Alberta, obtained by APTN, that he told Grey of the test results May 4.APTN asked Grey if he was disputing Schulz’s record of events but he has yet to respond, or to any other follow up questions.In depth: Alberta Crown let Metis man plead guilty after RCMP said drugs weren’t realBoucher, 45, was arrested Jan. 22 in an RCMP drug raid of his home in Lac La Biche, Alta., and maintained the “cocaine” police say they found was in fact baking soda found in his kitchen.“That is why he instructed me to send several letters asking the Crown to expedite the lab analysis,” Grey wrote.The tests were sent to Health Canada by the RCMP Feb. 3 and were completed on two samples by Feb. 24.But Boucher remained in the Edmonton Remand Centre despite the results confirming it was not cocaine.APTN reported Schulz repeatedly asked the RCMP for the results but never got them until May 3. Boucher said he pleaded guilty to two counts of simple possession because he faced being kept in jail until a September trial – and that he was having a hard time coping with the loss of his common-law wife who died in a car collision April 30.He pleaded May 30 and was released the same day. Boucher said he believed at the time that the tests were never completed and later filed a complaint against the RCMP.That’s when things started to unravel.Last week Boucher finally got the Health Canada lab results and the list of exhibits seized during the police raid.On the exhibit list, which was provided to APTN, it shows two small samples of suspected drugs were to be sent to Health Canada for testing. It was those small samples that Boucher pleaded to.It also lists other items found in the police raid.“He had been found in possession of items packaged for sale that appeared to be drugs. Only he knows why,” wrote Grey.APTN had called Grey’s office Oct. 23 prior to publishing the Oct. 24 story and left a message for him.“I could not return your call this week because I was not instructed to do so by Mr. Boucher. I remain bound by solicitor-client privilege,” wrote Grey.Boucher said he never received a call from Grey to get permission to speak to APTN.Grey also wrote that APTN should have looked into Boucher’s, his client’s, background.“The content of your piece has slandered a reputation that I have spent a lifetime earning. You might have taken the time to more thoroughly research Mr. Boucher’s public reputation,” wrote Grey.Grey did not specify what particulars he meant about Boucher’s “public reputation” in his email to APTN.However, in the original story, APTN reported that Boucher has a criminal record and he was also wanted for breaching his bail.Boucher has maintained he is not a drug dealer.Grey also took issue with APTN reporting Boucher filed a complaint against him with the Law Society.“I am not under investigation by the Law Society, nor was any formal complaint brought against me,” wrote Grey.APTN has a copy of the original complaint, and a letter from the Law Society confirming it was reviewing it in June.Boucher said his complaints against Schulz and Grey were dismissed, but has since sent the Law Society the test results from Health Canada, as well as the list of exhibits. APTN confirmed both complaints have been forwarded to the conduct department and are under review.Grey did say Boucher was “wronged”.“In any case, I would appreciate it very much if you could print a clarification of your piece which sets the record straight. Mr. Boucher was wronged, but not by me. Your readers deserve to know that, especially the ones who are my colleagues and clients,” said Grey.APTN has also been waiting three days for the RCMP to comment. Boucher told APTN he was told five Mounties face discipline based on his complaint. APTN also wants to know why it took over a month for the RCMP to provide the lab results to the Crown.kjackson@aptn.calast_img read more

Ban challenges business leaders to create cleaner greener global economy

24 May 2009Calling the issue of climate change “the defining challenge of our time,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today issued a challenge to business leaders to lead efforts to transform the global economy into one that is “cleaner, greener and more sustainable.” Mr. Ban told participants at the World Business Summit on Climate Change in Copenhagen that “you and your colleagues have the ingenuity and vision to lead by example where others – including governments – are lagging behind.” Governments are expected to wrap up negotiations on a successor pact to the Kyoto Protocol, whose first commitment period for reducing greenhouse gas emissions ends in 2012, in the Danish capital in December. “As business leaders, you are crucially placed to ensure that government negotiators seal a deal,” the Secretary-General said, urging their support to harness the political will needed to reach an ambitious new agreement later this year. Although he acknowledges the difficulties in concluding the pact, he warned that “if we get it wrong, we face catastrophic damage to people, to the planet – and to the global marketplace.” The UN will be issuing a so-called “Copenhagen Call” at the end of the three-day meeting on 26 May, Mr. Ban said, appealing to the private sector to use its influence to raise awareness of climate change. “As business leaders, you must make it clear to your leaders that doing the right thing for the climate is also the smart thing for global competitiveness and long-term prosperity,” he said. “We may never get a better opportunity. And if the world’s scientists are right, we may not get a second chance.” Mr. Ban also exhorted participants to mobilize their employees, partners and others to demand urgent action on the issue, as well as to continue finding private-sector methods to slash climate risks. “Your customers and your shareholders will reward you,” the Secretary-General, who will be convening a high-level summit on climate change in September, said. “And your children will thank you one day.” According to some estimates, rising greenhouse gas emissions could lead to a 5 per cent drop, or even more, in global Gross Domestic Product (GDP), compared to the prediction by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that it could cost as little as 0.1 per cent of global GDP annually until 2030 to reduce emissions. “And that does not factor in the multiple extra benefits to health and development,” he said. Concluding negotiations on a new climate pact in December will be a boon to businesses, Mr. Ban, who arrived in Copenhagen from a two-day visit to Sri Lanka, stressed. “We know that the right kind of deal will provide the regulatory certainty and long-term price signals that businesses are demanding,” he said. “We know that a deal can unleash investment, stimulate innovation and facilitate the global spread of low-carbon technologies.” If the Copenhagen conference in December ends in failure, countries could turn inward in a misguided attempt to solve the climate problem on their own, the Secretary-General cautioned, pointing out that protectionist barriers could result. He countered the argument that action on climate change should be put on hold during a global recession, emphasizing that while a global bail-out may seem costly now, “it will pale next to the enormous human and economic costs of delaying action on climate change.” read more

New Orano CEO to spend more time making the case for nuclear

Province slams feds for ‘hypocrisy’ on mine cleanup funding Uncertainty remains but Cameco ‘pleased’ with Trump’s uranium decision Roughriders QB Harker at home in land of potash and uranium Uranium development company inks ‘unique’ sponsorship deal with Roughriders Saskatchewan is years or even decades away from a decision on nuclear power, but Orano Canada Inc.’s new chief executive says he wants to take a more active role in advocating for what many believe is a major step toward addressing climate change.That means pitching atomic energy as a cleaner, safer alternative to coal and natural gas, especially to younger people who are increasingly concerned about the long-term effects of pollution on the environment, Jim Corman said.“That generation understands the challenges that are ahead of us, in some cases maybe more so than other generations do. They’re becoming more vocal and they’re becoming a group that can help when they understand the benefits of our industry,” he said.That represents a shift for the company, which has traditionally kept a low profile in Saskatchewan.Corman, who grew up in Regina and graduated from the University of Saskatchewan, spent most of his career working for Orano’s predecessor companies, Cogema and Areva, in Saskatchewan before taking a job with the French state-owned firm in Paris.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.This week, he took over from the retiring Vincent Martin as head of the company’s 500-employee Canadian operation, which plays an instrumental role in the province’s multi-billion-dollar uranium industry, despite being less well-known than Cameco Corp.In addition to its McLean Lake Mill, which processes ore from Cameco’s flagship Cigar Lake mine, Orano owns stakes in three of the Saskatoon-based company’s northern Saskatchewan operations: Cigar Lake, the McArthur River mine and the Key Lake mill.Those partnerships mean the French company has been affected by ongoing oversupply in the global uranium market, a result of the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi disaster, which led to a severe decline in demand for uranium mined in Canada and elsewhere.“It’s been tough for awhile. We’re not where we thought we would be today. If you go back a couple years, we were anticipating a stronger price for our product today than where it is. (But) we believe we’re at the low end of the cycle,” Corman said.Pointing to sharp production cuts — Cameco has indefinitely shuttered three of its operations, including McArthur River and Key Lake — since 2016 and an ongoing drawdown of existing supply, Corman said he believes the market should begin improving.The nuclear debate last flared up in Saskatchewan a decade ago, after Ontario-based Bruce Power LP concluded that a nuclear plant could add 1,000 megawatts to the electrical grid — a report that led to more than a year of robust public debate.Advocates tend to emphasize that nuclear is much cleaner than coal or natural gas — which make up the bulk of Saskatchewan’s generation capacity — while opponents point to potential dangers, as well as the problem of what to do with spent fuel.Ultimately, the Saskatchewan Party government declined to move on the proposal but left the door open for nuclear power in the future. More recently, SaskPower and Premier Scott Moe have mused publicly about small modular reactors in development.While discussions about such power plants are in the “early stages” as SaskPower works to drastically reduce its emissions, the provincial government has indicated small reactors could be part of a “diversified energy generation plan” by 2030.Corman, who hopes to bring his experience with Orano’s other operations to the Saskatchewan facilities he knows well, said the entire industry needs to continue advocating for a shift toward nuclear power around the world.“I certainly believe that nuclear will continue to have its role in the long term, and hopefully a growing role.”amacpherson@postmedia.comtwitter.com/macphersonaRelated read more

Time running out on reaching single global emissions scheme says IATA

MONTREAL – The global airline industry says time is running out for Canada and other countries to come to a single agreement on cutting aircraft emissions of greenhouse gases if they want to avoid a piecemeal regional approach that raised threats of a trade war last year.The International Air Transport Association, which represents 240 airlines, is proposing that countries gathered for the ICAO’s general assembly opening on Tuesday accept its proposal for a single, mandatory global mechanism to offset carbon emissions.“If we miss this opportunity, there’s a real risk we won’t achieve what we set out to achieve,” IATA chief executive Tony Tyler said in a news conference on Monday.Tyler said there was “a degree of optimism” ahead of the conference that the 191 members states of the International Civil Aviation Organization can reach a political agreement that would avoid a collection of regional plans, including the Emissions Trading Scheme proposed last year by the European Union. The EU put its proposal on hold following threats of trade wars from unhappy governments.“Everybody I spoke to on all sides of the debate believe very strongly that it’s very important that this assembly does deliver a resolution. What the content will be of course will be a matter of serious negotiation, but everybody is aware this is a historic opportunity to take a big step forward.”Global aviation accounts for around two per cent of global man-made carbon dioxide emissions. In 2009, the global aviation industry agreed to cap its net emissions from 2020 through “carbon-neutral growth’” and halve its net CO2 emissions by 2050, based on 2005 levels.Although details of IATA’s plan, including costs to airlines, still need to be developed, the industry and its partners are confident.“Aviation is a global industry. Managing emissions is a global challenge. The solution must therefore be global…that means avoiding being sidetracked by regional discussions,” said Tyler.Failure to agree would likely prompt the Europeans to restart the clock on its proposal, he said, noting that waiting until the next ICAO general assembly in three years would give little time to reach a deal before 2020.It also could lead to overlapping regional schemes that may force airlines to pay more than the true costs of the emissions.IATA on Monday unveiled its lower industry profit forecasts for 2013, trimming it by nearly eight per cent or by about US$1 billion from the June due to an oil spike associated with the Syrian crisis and slower growth in some markets. The latest forecast is for the industry’s global profit to be US$11.7 billion this year with US$708 billion of revenues.Earlier, IATA said its reduced profit forecast for this year still represents growth from the US$7.4 billion earned by the industry in 2012.For next year, IATA expects the industry’s global profit will rise to US$16.4 billion, which would make 2014 the best year since airlines posted a profit of US$19.2 billion in 2010. Revenues are forecast to reach US$743 billion as the industry benefits from rising business and consumer confidence and a 2.7 per cent forecasted GDP growth.“Overall, the story is largely positive. Profitability continues on an improving trajectory but we have run into a few speed bumps,” Tyler stated.Cargo growth hasn’t materialized and revenues are expected to decrease by US$8 billion to US$59 billion.Passenger growth is expected to be five per cent this year with the total numbers of travellers forecast to reach 3.12 billion, the first time they would top the three billion mark.North America is expected to post the strongest performance, with profits more than doubling to US$4.9 billion this year, up from US$2.3 billion in 2012, and increasing to US$6.3 billion in 2014.

End austerity says Tsipras

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram In an appearance likely to have pleased the left wing of his party, SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras said on Wednesday that Greece must focus on how to end austerity rather than whether it can stay in the euro.Returning to ground he had covered before the two general elections last summer, Tsipras repeated his mantra that his preference is for Greece to remain in the eurozone but that it should not aim to do so at all costs.“The euro is not the focal point,” he said. “The dilemma we are facing is not whether we will be in the euro or not but whether we will be in austerity. Our main concern is to avoid austerity.“Our aim is to save Greece in the euro and not to save the euro no matter what.”Tsipras also called for all the banks being recapitalized by the Hellenic Financial Stability Facility (HFSF) to be nationalized.Holding his press conference a day before the arrival of the troika in Athens, the SYRIZA leader accused Prime Minister Antonis Samaras of waiting for the visiting officials with “a bouquet of yeses.”Tsipras insisted that as premier, he would take a tougher negotiating line with the troika, who he referred to as a “white-collar gang,” and not succumb to the “blackmail” Cyprus suffered.“We are working on scenarios around which we will construct our negotiating tactics and examine chances for maneuver,” he said, adding that SYRIZA would soon be taking “significant steps” to create alliances to ensure “the balance of power is not totally negative.”Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

Aston Villa manager wanted more from his players

first_imgAston Villa manager Dean Smith says his side would have scored more goals but maintains he is okay with the final result.Aston Villa encountered Ipswith yesterday and left them with a 2-1 defeat.“We could have won five or six nil or 2-1 today it didn’t matter it was about getting a result and getting the win at home which I thought we thoroughly deserved today,” he told Birmingham Mail“It was comfortable until Freddie Sears stuck one in the top corner and then we probably had a four or five minute spell of panic, of trying to get over the line.“But then the last five minutes I thought we sorted it out really well. I’m disappointed it wasn’t as emphatic as it should have been.Aston Villa explains why they spent so much money on players Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Aston Villa’s chief executive, the team needed to spend £144.5 million on 12 players in order to stay competitive.“Tammy should have been walking away with his 20th and 21st goals today and John McGinn should also be walking away with two or three with the chances he’s had.“So we’ve had a number of chances today and if we’re more clinical we would have made the game a lot more comfortable.“That said, we’ve got some players coming back it was great to get Mile on the pitch today.“We’re hoping to do some deals before Thursday as well.“We needed to get that win today and I thought we thoroughly deserved it.”last_img read more

Shikhar Dhawan mocks R Ashwin responds to Mankad warning with a bizarre

first_imgAshwin’s picture was shredded by James Anderson.Ravichandran Ashwin Instagram Shikhar Dhawan performed a few bizarre moves as a response to Ravichandran Ashwin’s ‘Mankading’ warning when Delhi Capitals took on Kings XI Punjab in an Indian Premier League clash on Saturday, April 20. The match at Feroz Shah Kotla featured the teams ranked three and four on the points table, thus the stakes were pretty high. Punjab batted first and scored 163 in their 20 overs and in response, Delhi made a solid start to reach 108 runs for the loss of the solitary wicket of young Prithvi Shaw in the 13th over. After two balls of the over had been bowled, Delhi Capitals skipper Shreyas Iyer was on strike and Ashwin was the bowler. The skipper of KXIP, instead of delivering the ball, stopped his run-up immediately as reached the popping crease, gave a glance at an advancing Dhawan at the non-striker’s end and went back to the start of his mark to bowl the next delivery. This was the second non-verbal warning of the match for Dhawan as he had earlier wandered well outside his crease in the 12th over. On that occasion, Murugan Ashwin warned the Delhi batsman. Ashwin gave a Mankad warning to Dhawan.Hotstar ScreengrabDhawan, not one to back away from a challenge, proceeded to do a stretch after planting his bat inside the crease as Ashwin returned to his bowling mark. But what took the cake and got a massive applause was when the Delhi batsman pulled out some of his nightclub moves. As Ashwin was delivering the third ball of the over, Dhawan — with bat inside the crease at the non-striker’s end — gyrated his hips and shook his entire body with eyes fixed on the bowler. “That was great to watch, the crowd also joining in. They are watching all this — fun games,” said Sanjay Manjrekar on commentary as fellow commentator Lisa Sthalekar could be heard laughing hysterically in the background. “This is a nice little byplay between the two. But you can sense that this is a crucial moment [in the match]. Yeah, he [Dhawan’s] not going to make the mistake [of leaving his crease] again,” said Sthalekar. “He’s done a twist from the ’60s,” concluded Manjrekar as replays of Dhawan’s odd, yet adorable, dance moves were shown in the replays. Dhawan played a handy knock of 56 in the match as he helped Delhi chase down the score with two balls to spare. The India international was dismissed by Hardus Viljoen and incidentally, it was Ashwin who took a fantastic catch, running to his left. After Dhawan’s dismissal, it was skipper Shreyas Iyer who took charge and saw his side home courtesy a man of the match performance. With that victory, Delhi moved to 12 points from 10 games and consolidated their third-place position on the points table. The capital franchise will face Rajasthan Royals in their next game at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on April 22.last_img read more

How Some Teachers Students In Texas Are Responding To PresidentElect Trump

first_img X 00:00 /02:35 Share To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: The morning after Election Day, Montessori teacher Gina Applegate was greeting her students. Then one of her fourth graders arrived in tears. He sat in a bean bag and covered his face with his hoodie.Houston Public Media’s Coverage of Election 2016“He was sobbing, sobbing,” Applegate recounted. “When I went to ask him what’s the matter, he was inconsolable in that initial moment.”Applegate encouraged the 9-year-old to write down what was bothering him. Later he handed her a card. He wrote: “I am scared because Trump hates people of color like me and that is why I’m scared.”Applegate wrote her student, who is biracial, back.“I said, ‘I understand your fear, but there is hope because there are many people who care for all the different colors of people and you have the power in you to teach tolerance and show the world compassion. I’ll be there by your side. We’re in this together,” she read.Later she gathered the whole class at the private Montessori school north of Austin for a conversation about the election. She said they had already discussed different ways to hold elections around the world, but they revisited the Electoral College. Above all, Applegate said that she wants her students to understand different points of view and express their feelings — without a debate contest with winners and losers.It’s the kind of conversation that’s played out in schools across Texas following Election Day 2016.In Houston, Anastasia Anderson leads two charters, called Promise Community Schools. Many students are from all over the world, including Mexico, Pakistan and Syria. She says many children from kindergarten to eighth grade asked questions this week.“They’re questions like ‘Are we going to be sent back to our home countries? Why did such a mean man get a elected?” Anderson said. “Some are questioning, “Is it OK to talk about women the way we’ve heard women talked about?”Some students expressed fear about a wall between the United States and Mexico or being Muslim.Anderson said that it’s hard to answer the questions. Trump has maintained that his policies like a building wall with Mexico will make America better.On campus, Anderson wanted to give students a place where they could talk and express their feelings in a safe environment.  So they gathered in circles.“We did ask our teachers to spend some time if the students want to talk, listen to them. If they want to play, if they want to dance, if they want to express themselves and let off some steam, because this election has been such a stressful one, allow that to be,” she explained.Anderson said that they also used the election results as a teaching moment  to reinforce how the U.S. government works – that no one person runs it, but rather several branches.She added that the election has reinforced another lesson for teachers.“We’re preparing our next set of adults for the electoral process that they will go through and it’s so important that they be able to handle it responsibly when they become adults,” she said.center_img Courtesy Gina ApplegateMontessori teacher Gina Applegate received this note from a student troubled by the election.

NVTOP An htop like monitoring tool for NVIDIA GPUs on Linux

first_imgPeople started using htop when the top just didn’t provide enough information. Now there is NVTOP, a tool that looks similar to htop but displays the process information loaded on your NVIDIA GPU. It works on Linux systems and displays detailed information about processes, memory used, which GPU and also displays the total GPU and memory usage. The first version of this tool was released in July last year. The latest change made the process list and command options scrollable. Some of the features of NVTOP are: Sorting by column To Select / Ignore a specific GPU by ID To kill selected process Monochrome option Yes, it has multi GPU support and can display the running processes from all of your GPUs. The information printed out looks like the following, and is similar to something htop would display. Source: GitHub There is also a manual page to give some guidance in using NVTOP. It can be accessed with this command: man nvtop There are OS specific installation steps on GitHub for Ubuntu/Debian, Fedora/RedHat/CentOS, OpenSUSE, and Arch Linux. Requirements There are two libraries needed to build and run NVTOP: The NVIDIA Management Library (NVML) for querying GPU information. The ncurses library for the user interface and make it colorful. Supported GPUs The NVTOP tool works only for NVIDIA GPUs and runs on Linux systems. One of the dependencies is the NVML library which does not support some queries from GPUs before the Kepler microarchitecture. That is anything before GeForce 600 series, GeForce 700 series, or GeForce 800M wouldn’t likely work. For AMD users, there is a tool called radeontop. The tool is provided under the GPLV3 license.

And for some reason y’all continue to come back and do the same thing,” Lynch said. “I don’t know what story y’all trying to get out of me. I don’t know what image y’all trying to portray of me, but it don’t matter what y’all think, what y’all say about me because when I go home at night, the same people that I look in the face — my family, that I love — that’s all that really matters to me.“So y’all could go and make up whatever you want to make up because I don’t say enough for y’all to go and put anything out on me. I’ll come to y’all event. Y’all shove cameras and microphones down my throat. But y’all mad at me. And if y’all ain’t mad at me, then what y’all here for?”In addition to his aversion to answering questions, Lynch has also been fined by the league for grabbing his crotch after scoring touchdowns against the Arizona Cardinals in the regular season and the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game.Many of his contemporaries, and others around the league, seem to put Lynch’s behavior in the “that’s just Marshawn being Marshawn” category. Cardinals linebacker Larry Foote isn’t one of them.During a radio interview on “The Cook and Poni Show” on The Fan 93.7 FM in Pittsburgh, Foote offered a salient criticism of Lynch’s tactics and went as far to say that he’s sending the wrong message to the youngsters in his foundation in Oakland.“You hear in the media, he always mentions his foundation and what he likes to do for the city of Oakland,” Foote said. “I’m from the same type of urban environment that he’s from and the biggest message that he’s giving these kids, he might not want to admit it, is the hell with authority. ‘I don’t care, fine me, I’m gonna grab my crotch, I’m gonna do it my way.’ In the real world, it doesn’t work that way. It just doesn’t. How can you keep a job. I mean, you got these inner city kids, they don’t listen to teachers, they don’t listen to police officers, principals and these guys can’t even keep a job because they say ‘F’ authority.”Kudos to Foote for saying what so many others haven’t.
