Walmart fined 20K for selling contaminated food after Fort McMurray wildfire

first_imgFORT MCMURRAY, Alta. – Walmart Canada has been ordered to pay a $20,000 fine for selling contaminated food after a devastating wildfire in northern Alberta two years ago.Some of the charges against Walmart included failing to dispose of food items — including candy, potato chips, beans and condiments — after the Fort McMurray fire in May 2016.An agreed statement of facts presented in Fort McMurray provincial court shows there were originally 174 charges, but that number was reduced to 10.Walmart Canada and loss prevention manager Darren Kenyon were each fined $2,000 per offence.In a statement, Walmart Canada spokesman Rob Nichol says the company didn’t adequately carry out an order from Alberta Health Services.The health authority said food exposed to wildfires could be damaged by unsafe temperatures, smoke, ash, soot, fire retardants, water and loss of power.Nichol says Walmart has learned from the experience and will be better able to respond in future crises.“Food safety and the safety of our customers is our top priority,” said the statement released Monday. “As part of our commitment, Walmart has recently made a donation to the Red Cross to support ongoing disaster preparedness, relief and recovery operations.”Nichol says the $130,000 donation to the Fort McMurray Red Cross was made Sept. 20.Crown prosecutor Ivan Bernardo said he believes the fines will deter other operators from committing a similar offence.The huge fire forced more than 80,000 people to flee the city. Residents were not allowed to return to the damaged community until June.(CJOK, The Canadian Press)last_img read more

Burundi UN rights office warns about consequences of countrys extremely tense situation

Indeed, more than 145,000 people have already fled to neighboring countries less than a week before the presidential election, set for July 15, and ten days after parliamentary and local elections, which took place in an atmosphere far from conducive to a free, fair and inclusive vote, explained the Spokesperson for the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), Rupert Colville, during a press conference in Geneva. “Polls were boycotted by opposition parties, with outbreaks of violence, including small-arms and grenade attacks,” he stressed. Over the past two months, UNHCR office in Burundi has documented over 300 cases of arbitrary arrest and detention of demonstrators, human rights defenders, political opponents and journalists. Numerous cases of torture and other forms of ill-treatment in detention were also reported. “A severe crackdown on independent media has led to the closure of most private media and radio stations. Large numbers of journalists and human rights defenders have fled Burundi for fear of reprisals. Peaceful protests have been met with unwarranted use of force, including lethal force, in violation of Burundi’s obligation under national and international law to guarantee the right to freedom of assembly,” Mr. Colville continued. Recently, key members of the Pierre Nkurunziza’s own political party and government have fled the country, the Spokesperson added. “Our field office has also documented dozens of killings, most of them shootings of demonstrators and human rights defenders by members of the Imbonerakure militia and security forces,” he said, urging the authorities to disarm this militia without delay. Refugees interviewed by our staff in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Rwanda and Tanzania continue to refer to the Imbonerakure as the main threat, but some have also stated that militants from other groups are also employing violence – a new and disturbing development. “Media interviews carried out in the past couple of days, with leaders of the attempted coup in May, who talk openly of organizing military units and of resorting to the use of force, are alarming. We call on all sides to make serious and urgent efforts to find a peaceful solution to this crisis before it leads to uncontrollable violence,” concluded Mr. Colville. read more

Despite raging conflict scores of refugees continue to arrive in Yemen by

These desperate people, mainly from Somalia and Ethiopia, have continued to arrive at the Yemeni shores even after the conflict erupted in the Middle Eastern country in March, Adrian Edwards, a spokesperson for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), told reporters in Geneva. The latest UNHCR estimates indicate that Yemen is currently hosting 264,615 refugees, of which 250,260 are Somali. Mr. Edwards warned that travelling to Yemen, especially through sea routes, is extremely dangerous, as 88 deaths at sea have been recorded this year between the Horn of Africa and Yemen. He added that about three weeks ago, a boat with 68 migrants and refugees capsized in the Arabian Sea, killing 35. Moreover, he continued, the reception facilities for those reaching Yemen via the Red Sea have been suspended after a fatal attack destroyed a village hosting new arrivals in Bab el Mandab, resulting in the death of two partner agency staffers.However, Mr. Edwards said that UNHCR and its partners are providing shelter, food and medical care in the Mayfa’a reception centre for those arriving via the Arabian Sea coast.According to UNHCR, movements to Yemen have shifted to the Arabian Sea coast where people believe the situation is calmer, which has resulted in over 10,000 new arrivals in September, a 50 per cent increase on August, and over 10,000 in October.UNHCR and its partners have been able to provide reception and medical services to those arriving to the Arabian Sea coast.Alternatively, UNHCR reports that over 121,000 people have fled Yemen to neighbouring countries since March.Further, the UN agency is also alarmed at the numbers of displaced Yemenis are continuously rising and according to a displacement tracking mechanism developed by UNHCR and the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the number of internally displaced people (IDPs) has reached a record-high of 2,305,048 people.This figure, according to the UN agency, has gone up from 545,719 individuals in mid-May illustrating that currently, close to 1 out of 10 Yemenis seek refuge elsewhere in the country as a result of on-going conflict or lack of basic services and a minimum of livelihood opportunities.“UNHCR calls on all parties to the conflict to protect the lives and rights of civilians, including refugees and the internally displaced,” said Mr. Edwards. “Refugees have lost their livelihoods and many are again uprooted as they move to other parts of the country,” he added.Mr. Edwards said that so far UNHCR has provided emergency relief items to 22,883 IDP families (147,386 individuals) since the end of March, but noted that access to the affected populations still remains a key concern as many of those in dire need remain in areas cut-off due to conflict.Lastly, he added that the UN refugee agency is monitoring the conditions of displaced people with specific needs such as women, children, older persons and those with medical conditions. Through regular assessments it is able to target the delivery of its protection services to those with critical needs. read more

In Kabul UN political chief pledges continued support for Afghanistan

Jeffrey Feltman, the UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, discussed yesterday in Kabul the current situation in the country with several of Afghanistan’s leaders, including President Ashraf Ghani, Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah and Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Hekmat Karzai.Mr. Feltman also met with staff of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) to express appreciation for their dedication throughout the past several months as Kunduz fell to anti-Government elements. In addition, he paid tribute to Toorpeki Ulfat, who was murdered in Kandahar in October, and commended her for her tireless work in human rights.On 21 December, the UN Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Afghanistan, Nicholas Haysom, will update the Security Council on the situation in the country. In a September briefing, he emphasized to Council members that Afghanistan’s path to stability and self-reliance could not be taken for granted, and he underscored the importance of continued international community support.“The current refugee exodus reflects the despondency of many Afghans,” Mr. Haysom said at the time. “A clear signal of continued international support will mitigate the uncertainty fuelling this exodus.” read more

Van Dijk proud of teamwork in Seagulls battle

It starts up front, you can see how important it is.Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“Credit to everyone, we’re not doing it alone at the back, everyone’s doing their bit.“It’s always important, those crucial saves, so we’re happy to keep a clean sheet and win.”Salah now has 29 goals in as many appearances at Anfield, leaving Milner to marvel at his prolific team-mate.“Not a bad record is it. If Mo gets those chances he’ll take them,” he told BT Sport, before sending further praise in the direction of Van Dijk and the defence operating in front of Alisson – the Brazil goalkeeper already proving his worth after a big-money arrival from Roma.“The front three are always going to cause problems for most teams, that’s always going to get the headlines,” he added.“But the boys at the back, the goalkeeper and as a team keeping these clean sheets is so important. That’s what’s getting us the points.”last_img read more

Native Nonprofits Want State to Change on Adoption Case

first_imgDownload AudioAll the regional Native nonprofits in the state, which represent most of the tribes in Alaska, have issued a joint statement asking Governor Bill Walker to change his position in the court case Tununuk II vs. the state of Alaska. They say Walker’s position will make it very difficult for tribal members to adopt Native children. The state says it’s only arguing for compliance with a U.S. Supreme Court ruling.The case involves a Native child called Baby Dawn; her Alaska Native grandmother Elise of the village of Tununuk; and Baby Dawn’s non-Native former foster and now adoptive parents the Smiths of Anchorage. An Alaska Supreme Court ruling in December allowed the Smith’s petition to adopt Baby Dawn  to override Elise’s stated wish to adopt her granddaughter.Lloyd Miller, a partner with Sonosky, Chambers, Sachse, Miller and Munson, represents Elise in the case. Under the Indian Child Welfare Act, or ICWA, Alaska Native children must be placed for adoption with their relatives or tribal members unless good cause is shown it’s in the child’s interests to do otherwise. Miller says it used to be relatively easy for Native relatives or tribal members to adopt:“For 30 years, it has been the practice that all an individual had to do, a grandmother, an aunt, was to raise their hand, and tell the Office of Children’s Services, ‘I would like to take care of my niece, I would like to take care of my grand-daughter, my grandson, “” he said. “And that was enough to trigger all the Indian Child Welfare Act’s requirements, which include home studies, determining whether the home will be safe and a good placement for the child.”But in Tununuk 2 vs. Alaska, the state successfully argued that a 2013 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court requires the formal filing of a petition to adopt to trigger ICWA preferences. A petition to adopt requires legal assistance from attorneys, which tribes say creates a costly obstacle for people in remote communities. The grandmother had not filed a petition to adopt. The Smiths did.Attorney Kenneth Kirk represents the Smiths. “Our position is the court’s made its decision. The decision is consistent with the Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl case from the U.S. Supreme Court, which, they really have to follow it. There’s not much the Alaska Supreme Court can do about that whether they like it or not.”That’s not so according to tribal attorney Miller:“The Adoptive Couple v Baby Girl decision from the United States Supreme Court never said that before these placement preferences apply, a grandmother, or an aunt, has to file a formal adoption petition,” Miller said. “It doesn’t say that. The state is making it up.”Rather, Miller says, the Adoptive Couple decision from the Supreme Court requires would-be adoptive parents to take formal steps to adopt, which the grandmother did by stating she wanted to adopt in court.The Alaska Supreme Court does have the authority to reverse its earlier ruling, according to Tanana Chiefs Conference General Counsel Natasha Singh. She says not only do the attorneys on the side of Elise and the Village of Tununuk agree on that count, so does the U.S. Department of Justice, which has joined the suit on their side:“It is absolutely unheard of that the Department of Justice would file amicus. We met with the Department of Justice two weeks ago and they feel so strongly that the state of Alaska and Alaska Supreme Court got this wrong that they filed amicus.”Still,  Kirk says Baby Dawn now is almost seven-years old and has been with the Smith’s since she was a year and a half. He says the tribes should find another test case:“As you can imagine, if you had a case hanging over your head where there was some possibility your child would be taken away from you, it kind of wears you down” Kirk said. “I mean that’s tough on people, it’s tough on any parent. I really wish we could end it and find some other way to resolve this.”Singh says the case, at this point, is more about the issues than the individual adoption of Baby Dawn. She says if the Alaska Supreme Court decides to reverse its decision, the Baby Dawn case would go back to a lower trial court. There, Singh says, the trial court would decide whether there is just cause to remove Baby Dawn from the Smith family:“All we’re asking is for the policy that the Alaska Supreme Court came out with in Tununuk Two to be reversed. That does not necessarily mean that the child will be removed from its placement.”The village of Tununuk requested a rehearing in the case. Briefs to the Alaska Supreme Court on that request are due Monday.last_img read more

Sonakshi Sinhas arrest Is it publicity gimmick for the actress upcoming event

first_imgSonakshi SinhaPR HandoutSome videos featuring Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha being arrested are creating ripples on social media, but sources from the B-Town say that it is a publicity gimmick for her upcoming event.Varinder Chawla, one of the noted photographers of Bollywood, shared a couple of videos on Instagram and wrote, “SHOCKING: #MissionMangal star Sonakshi Sinha gets into legal trouble during promotions  #aslisonaarrested #sonakshisinha #AsliSonaArrested #WhereIsSonakshiSinha #Sonakshi #SonakshiSinha #Aslisona.”Viral Bhayani, who is another popular fashion photographer from Mumbai, also shared the same videos on Instagram and wrote, “Looks like #SonakshiSinha is in some trouble. #aslisonaarrested #AsliSonaArrested #WhereIsSonakshiSinha #Sonakshi #SonakshiSinha #Aslisona.”In the first videos, Sonakshi Sinha is seen declining to talk to reporters as she enters an office. In the second clip, she is seen yelling at the person, who is handcuffing her, “You can’t arrest me like this. Do you who I am? I have not done anything, I am innocent. How can you arrest me like that?”These videos fueled the speculations that Sonakshi Sinha was arrested in connection with a cheating case filed by an event organiser in Uttar Pradesh. When approached her PR team, they said that they are clueless about it, but they did not stop reporting this development. In reply to IBTimes, India, they said, “We are looking into it.”Neither the photographers, who shot the video, nor her PR team wants to speak about Sonakshi Sinha’s arrest, but they want it to be publicized in the media. This clearly shows that it is a publicity gimmick. A source, who is aware of this video, told IBTimes India, “It is paid promotional video, which is meant to be a publicity gimmick for her upcoming event.”However, some of the people, who responded to the above posts, also feel that it is a publicity gimmick. A few said that she should be arrested in real for the kind of performance she has given in her recent movies. Here are some of their reaction.Sohil_monvelvala: Shayad koi movie ki shooting ya phir add shooting ka sence hai?Shoesbuykart: Fake ho ya real ,how can she say do you know who I am ,c**t*y* hai tu samji Sanjay Dutt Ko jail ho Sakti hai toh tu konsi Oscar winning actress’s chupchap jail me baithSrimalayasouravvarun: Itna ghatiya picture banane ki sajaa to yaahi hona chahiyeKetanlondhe: Deserved to be in prison to spare us from her crap filmsVis6807: Isko arrest krke Kashmir bhej do waha ke aatankwadi isse dekh kar bhag jayenge…Awesome_abhi__: Badshah hero he bhai inki movie me inko to kaale pani ki saja milni chahiyePpatchysense: Hona chiye arrest bhaiya acting ki to ek kar Rakhi hai or Abhi khanadani chutyapa main vo lead hai haad hai Bollywood chutyalast_img read more

US asks nations to repatriate jihadists

first_imgAn Iraqi photographer shows a girl a picture taken on his camera at Nafoura square in the al-Zuhur neighbourhood in the eastern part of the northern Iraqi city of Mosul on 5 January. AFP File PhotoThe United States urged other countries Monday to bring home hundreds of Islamic State fighters captured in Syria, a delicate issue for allies such as France and Britain as president Donald Trump withdraws troops.Washington drew a line on the jihadists two days before foreign ministers from Europe and the Middle East gather in the US capital for talks on how to fight the Islamic State group, also known as ISIS, once the US military presence ends.US allies have been grappling for weeks with what to do with foreign fighters detained in the war-ravaged country by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, who have warned that they may not be able to guard their jails once US troops leave.”The United States calls upon other nations to repatriate and prosecute their citizens detained by the SDF and commends the continued efforts of the SDF to return these foreign terrorist fighters to their countries of origin,” State Department spokesman Robert Palladino said in a statement.”Despite the liberation of ISIS-held territory in Iraq and Syria, ISIS remains a significant terrorist threat and collective action is imperative to address this shared international security challenge,” Palladino said.Another US official, speaking to reporters on condition of anonymity, acknowledged that northeastern Syria had become a “very fluid space.””As events unfold, there are any number of scenarios under which positive control of some of the individuals currently in custody could change,” the official said.He voiced concern that jihadists could then leave Syria for “other, more permissive places around the world from which they could seek to carry forward the fight.”Fears in EuropeTrump stunned Western allies on December 19 by announcing that the United States would pull its 2,000 troops out of Syria, declaring that IS had been defeated.One of the countries most concerned is France, which has been hit by a series of IS-inspired attacks including the grisly November 2015 siege of the Bataclan nightclub in Paris.France — which along with Britain maintains a small deployment of special forces in Syria — last week opened the door to bringing back its citizens, after earlier insisting that the jihadists should be prosecuted locally and not step foot back in France.The French foreign ministry said its goal was to “avoid the escape and scattering of these potentially dangerous individuals” and acknowledged that the situation on the ground was changing with the US withdrawal.A French security source, speaking on condition of anonymity, earlier told AFP 130 people could be repatriated. A second French official said the group included 70 to 80 children held with their mothers.Britain has meanwhile been grappling with what to do with the two surviving members of a quartet — nicknamed “The Beatles” for their accents — who were notorious for videotaped beheadings.Britain has shown no interest in bringing home the Kurdish-jailed pair, Alexanda Amon Kotey and El Shafee el-Sheikh, amid reports they were stripped of their nationality.A report last year said the United States was willing to take them in its military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba — an option that would be deeply controversial in Britain, partly due to the US practice of the death penalty.Talk of security zoneThe SDF are worried that, without US troops as a buffer, they will be crushed by neighbouring Turkey — which equates them with Kurdish separatists at home and encouraged Trump to withdraw US forces.Shortly after Trump’s announcement, the SDF warned it would pull back from the battle against IS if Turkey attacked and may redeploy its prison guards.Wednesday’s 79-nation conference in Washington is expected to look further at ways to avoid what Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in a comment that angered Turkey, warned could be the “slaughter” of Kurdish fighters in Syria.Trump and Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan have discussed a “safe zone” which Ankara wants on Syrian territory. European allies are cool to the idea and the Kurdish fighters want the zone to be directly on the border with coalition forces on the Turkish side.Foreign ministers will also hear at the conference from Nobel laureate Nadia Murad, a member of the Yazidi minority in Iraq who was abducted and raped, like thousands of women and girls, by jihadists.Since obtaining freedom, Murad has campaigned for accountability over the atrocities and urged Iraq and other countries to investigate the fate of Yazidi who remain missing.last_img read more

Bahrain Shiite opposition leader sentenced to 4 years

first_imgMANAMA, Bahrain (AP) — A Bahraini court sentenced the country’s leading Shiite opposition figure to four years in prison on Tuesday amid an ongoing crackdown on dissent in the tiny island kingdom.Sheikh Ali Salman, a key figure in the 2011 uprising against the Sunni monarchy, was convicted of insulting the Interior Ministry, which oversees police, inciting others to break the law and inciting hatred against naturalized Sunni citizens, many of whom are of South Asian descent and serve in the country’s security forces. Sponsored Stories However, the court found Salman not guilty of the most serious charge he faced, which was inciting violence and calling for the overthrow of the monarchy, which carried a potential life sentence. His defense lawyer, Abdullah al-Shamlawi, said Salman can appeal.Salman, 49, is the secretary-general of the al-Wefaq political opposition group and was arrested in late December. The charges against him stem from speeches he made between 2012 and 2014.Al-Wefaq says his words were taken out of context. His group criticized the verdict.“Keeping Ali Salman in jail means delaying any political solution to come and reflects the government’s rejection to a political solution,” al-Wefaq member Khalil Marzooq said.Bahrain, which hosts the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet, sees near-daily protests backed by the country’s Shiite majority, who demand greater say in the government.Al-Wefaq is among Bahrain’s most vocal and organized opposition groups. The group, which boycotted last year’s parliamentary elections, is demanding greater power-sharing between elected lawmakers and the monarchy, the release of political prisoners and a prime minister chosen by elected officials.
