Indigenous offenders in federal prison highlight challenges for Trudeau government

Posted on by

first_imgThe Canadian PressThe number of Indigenous offenders in the federal correctional system has risen almost 40 per cent in the last decade, says a government report.It also says a lower percentage of Indigenous offenders benefit from gradual release from custody than non-Indigenous ones.In addition, the number of women admitted to federal correctional centres has increased in recent years.The statistics underscore the challenges the Liberal government faces as it tries to deal with the over-representation of Indigenous people, the mentally ill and other vulnerable Canadians in the prison system.At the same time, the overall crime rate has been dropping and relatively few crimes result in sentences to federal penitentiaries.A look at some key statistics and trends highlighted in the Corrections and Conditional Release Statistical Overview, 2016 Annual Report:_ The overall crime rate has decreased 34 per cent since 1998, to 5,888 per 100,000 population in 2015 from 8,915. Over the same period, there was a 43.5-per-cent decrease in the property-crime rate, to 3,220 per 100,000 from 5,696.-In contrast, the crime rate for drug offences has increased 12.6 per cent since 1998, to 269 per 100,000 from 235.– The rate of violent crime has fluctuated, peaking in 2000 at 1,494 per 100,000 population. Since 2000, the rate of violent crime has decreased 28.9 per cent to 1,062 in 2015.– The in-custody population in federal prisons has increased in seven of the last 10 years, though there was a slight decline in 2015-16.– From 2013-14 to 2014-15, the provincial-territorial sentenced offender population in custody increased 4.8 per cent to 10,364 from 9,888. The remand population increased 18.8 per cent to 13,650 from 11,494 during this period.– In 2015-16, Indigenous offenders represented 22.7 per cent of the total federal offender population. They accounted for 25.7 per cent of those in custody and 17.3 per cent of those on various forms of supervised release in the community in 2015-16.– From 2006-07 to 2015-16, the total Indigenous offender population increased 39.5 per cent.– In 2015-16, the federal day parole and full parole grant rates increased for both Indigenous offenders and non-Indigenous offenders.-However, a smaller percentage of Indigenous offenders benefit from supervised gradual releases than non-Indigenous ones: 82.4 per cent of Indigenous offenders were held until their statutory release dates compared to only 65.2 per cent of non-Indigenous ones.– The number of women admitted to the federal correctional system increased to 383 in 2015-16 from 316 in 2006-07.– In 2015-16, there was an 18.4-per-cent decrease in the total number of admissions to administrative segregation, where inmates are isolated from other prisoners in federal institutions.last_img read more

BC halts northeast fracking operations while it investigates earthquakes

Posted on by

first_imgCompanies mentioned in this article: (TSX:CNQ)The Canadian Press FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The BC Oil and Gas Commission is shutting down oilfield fracking operations in an area in the northeast part of the province for at least 30 days while it investigates earthquakes that occurred there on Nov. 29.The regulator says the seismic events measuring between 3.4 and 4.5 magnitude took place near hydraulic fracturing operations being conducted about 20 kilometres southeast of Fort St. John by Calgary-based Canadian Natural Resources Ltd.It says the company immediately suspended that work and it won’t be allowed to resume without the written consent of the commission.According to Natural Resources Canada, the 4.5 magnitude earthquake was felt in Fort St. John, Taylor, Chetwynd and Dawson Creek but did no damage. It was followed by two smaller aftershocks.Hydraulic fracturing involves injecting large amounts of water, sand and chemicals into a well to break up tight rock underground and allow trapped oil and gas to flow.The technology, along with injecting oilfield liquids into disposal wells, have been linked by the B.C. commission to previous incidents of “induced seismicity,” although it notes on its website none of the events in B.C. have resulted in hazards to safety or the environment or property damage.last_img read more

ExUS Congressmans Russian bank stripped of license

Posted on by

MOSCOW — A small Russian bank owned by former U.S. congressman Charles Taylor has been stripped of its license after allegedly breaking anti-money laundering rules.Russia’s central bank says that Commercial Bank of Ivanovo committed “numerous” breaches of anti-money laundering legislation and inflated the value of its assets.The central bank has appointed administrators and says more than 70 per cent of CBI’s lending was “low-quality loans.”Taylor, a Republican widely considered a hard-line conservative, was a congressman from North Carolina between 1991 and 2007.Central bank records show Taylor owns more than 80 per cent of CBI, a regional lender based in the textile-manufacturing city of Ivanovo, just over 150 miles (245 kilometres) north-east of Moscow.The Associated Press

Humanitarian and security situations in western Sudan reach new lows UN agency

Posted on by

“The humanitarian situation in Darfur has quickly become one of the worst in the world. Access to people in need is blocked by the parties in conflict and now, as the need for aid grows, stocks of relief materials are dwindling,” said Mr. Egeland, who is also Under-Secretary-General in charge of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).Fighting between forces loyal to the Government of Sudan and the main rebel Sudan Liberation Movement/Army (SLM/A) escalated in the Darfur areas last March and drove 670,000 people to join an earlier 200,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs). Some 70,000 of them fled across the border into Chad, where they lack basic supplies, OCHA said.The Sudanese crisis is already estimated as being the worst worldwide, with 4 million people displaced. The SLM/A has been holding talks with the Sudanese government recently, but the other rebel movement, the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM), has refused to do so.In the few areas accessible to humanitarian workers, IDPs lack water, food, shelter and sanitation facilities, Mr. Egeland said.”I remind combatants of their obligation to minimize the impact of their hostilities on civilian populations, in accordance with international law,” he said.Access to both rebel- and government-held areas continues to be denied or constrained by restrictions on travel permits and insecurity caused by militia activity and banditry, OCHA said. Trucks carrying aid have been attacked and relief workers held by armed groups.”I urge the government and the militias to take all possible steps to allow humanitarian workers to safely deliver aid to people who desperately need it. Parties to the conflict should honour the agreement they signed in September, which guaranteed aid workers safe and unimpeded access to people in need,” Mr. Egeland said. read more

Ministers adopt Declaration on small island developing States

Posted on by

Culminating a weeklong Interregional Preparatory Meeting, the Declaration constitutes a common platform for the International Conference for the 10-year review of the Barbados Programme of Action for the Sustainable Development of the Small Island Developing States, to be held in Mauritius from 30 August to 4 September.The Declaration reaffirms commitment to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), a series of time-bound targets adopted at a 2000 UN Summit aimed at eradicating a range of social ills. It also acknowledges that small island development States have made some progress in implementing the Programme of Action “largely through domestic measures, despite the impediments posed by their structural disadvantages and vulnerabilities.”But the Declaration voices concern over the weakening economic performance of many of these countries due in part to their declining trade performance. “We recognize that international trade is important for the building of resilience and sustainable development of SIDS,” the Ministers state.Concerned that these nations are unable to effectively participate in multilateral trade negotiations, the Declaration calls on the World Trade Organization (WTO) to “recognize the special case of SIDS and take appropriate action.”Voicing appreciation for support rendered so far, the text notes, however, that not all commitments have been honoured, while changing internal circumstances are further exacerbating the challenges faced by SIDS. The Declaration calls for “greater support for and improved coordination among” development partners for the effective implementation of the Programme of Action.”We emphasize the urgent needs of small island developing states for new and additional financial resources, provided in adequate, predictable and timely flows, in order to respond effectively to these challenges,” the Declaration says.When the forum opened on Monday, Anwarul K. Chowdhury, the Secretary-General of the Mauritius, meeting stressed that SIDS, though facing a set of specific challenges, have a great contribution to make to the global community.”For the conference in Barbados, our slogan was ‘Small Islands, Big Issues,'” Mr. Chowdhury, who is also Under-Secretary-General and High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States, had said. “For Mauritius, reflecting today’s realities, I would like to adjust it to say: ‘Small Islands, Big Potential.'” read more

Mothers and children need more – not less – social protection says

Posted on by

“At a time when the world is discussing a post-2015 development agenda, it is essential that the international community identifies financing sources for social protection,” or social security guarantees to protect them against economic distress and hardship caused by the absence or a substantial reduction of income from work because of illness, maternity, lack of employment, disability, old age and others, Isabel Ortiz, Director of the ILO Social Protection Department said as the agency released two new studies late last week. In the Social protection for maternity: Key policy trends and statistics report, ILO notes that only 36 per cent of employed women are legally entitled to cash benefits during their maternity leave.“In practice, however, maternity leave legislation is not implemented effectively, so only 28 per cent of working women are covered in case of maternity,” ILO said in a press release.“Around 800 women die from childbirth every day. In addition, 18,000 children also pass away daily. The sad reality is that despite efforts carried out as part of the Millennium Development Goals process, maternal and child mortality rates in developing countries are still very high,” according to the UN labour agency. “Most of these deaths are preventable with adequate social protection. Universal maternal and child health care is key to reducing high mortality rates, together with cash transfers to ensure adequate food, clothing, and access to social services,” added Ms. Ortiz. ILO said a related report, Social protection for children: Key policy trends and statistics, also paints a worrying picture. While there has been an explosion of small cash transfer schemes in recent years, the study shows, there is also a considerable gap with regard to the availability of adequate child and family benefits. A worrying trend, according to ILO, is that in some countries, the levels of maternity and child protection benefits have dropped as a result of fiscal consolidation policies.For example, it said, several European countries have reduced the level of maternity and child benefits or have limited the level of coverage, leading to an increase in child poverty in 18 of the 28 countries of the European Union between 2008 and 2013. The reports include detailed national data on maternity protection and child and family benefits for 188 countries surveyed.They looked at a sample of 57 low- and lower middle-income countries and show that introducing a basic universal maternity cash benefit would require, on average, 0.41 per cent of national gross domestic product (GDP). Meanwhile, having universal child benefits would, on average, require 1.9 per cent of national GDP. The projected costs for a basic universal child benefit vary greatly between countries, ranging from 5.2 per cent of GDP for Niger to 0.2 per cent of GDP for Guyana, considering that children constitute a large proportion of the population in these countries.The same variation applies to basic universal maternity protection, where it ranges from less than 0.1 per cent of GDP in Bhutan, Guyana, India, Indonesia, Mongolia, Morocco, Sri Lanka and Viet Nam to 1.1 per cent of GDP in Niger. read more

Oxford University set to open first new college in almost 30 years

Posted on by

Oxford is seeking to take on its Ivy League rivals such as Harvard Oxford is seeking to take on its Ivy League rivals such as Harvard Oxford University is set to open its first new college in almost 30 years, as it seeks to take on its Ivy League rivals.The university’s five year draft strategic plan, seen by The Daily Telegraph, contains proposals to build 1,000 graduate rooms and “at least one new graduate college”.This would be the first new college since 1990, when the graduate-only Kellogg College was established. The plans, which have been backed by the university’s governing body, must now win the approval Oxford’s dons.Under the plans, the intake of postgraduate students would increase by 850 a year by 2023, while undergraduates would increase by 200 a year.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––Nick Hillman, director of the Higher Education Policy Institute, said: “Oxford and Cambridge say they lose money on every undergraduate whereas for post graduates you can charge the full market rate and more.  “Oxford doesn’t compare itself to other institutions in the UK, it compares itself to other institutions around the world such as Ivy League which have more graduates than undergraduates.” Undergraduate fees are capped at £9,250, but Oxford chiefs have argued that its true cost of teaching a student is closer to £16,000 due to the intensive one-to-one tutorial model it operates. David Palfreyman, bursar at New College, Oxford, said: “The key US competitors are usually smaller than Oxford or Cambridge, especially at undergraduate level.”He said that being “a world class university and a super research university a la Harvard, Stanford, Yale, Princeton” requires a bigger cohort of post graduate researchers.The strategic plan also sets out a desire to “set ambitious targets” to “reduce by 2023 gaps in attainment by gender, ethnic origin and socio-economic background”.It also wants to “substantially increase” the number of undergraduate places offered to students from groups who are currently under-represented.A spokesman for Oxford University said the plans are under consultation, adding: “The University will comment more fully when its plan has been widely reviewed and formally adopted.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

He brings arrogance, confidence and belief.”harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“But when you’re a player who is signed for that money, when you dance like he does and when you’ve got hair like he has you have to play well and you have to match it.”“It’s no good shouting and singing and not playing. You have to play well and he hasn’t in the last couple of months and he’s fallen out with his manager. It’s a difficult situation.”“He is a fantastic footballer and he makes Manchester United a better team.

Mayor Bowser Tackles Measles

Posted on by

first_imgBy Brianna McAdoo, Special to the AFRODistrict of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser is giving residents easier access to vaccination in an effort to combat the nation wide measles outbreak before it has the chance to hit the area. On July 15 the mayor launched her “Don’t Wait, Vaccinate” campaign and announced she will be providing the MMR (Measles-Mumps-Rubella) vaccination to all eight wards of D.C. at 42 different health centers in the city. Graphic shows annual count of U.S. measles cases since 2000;Bowser shared her concern about the disease spreading.“The world is small…People travel all around and if you’re exposed just for minutes, airborne exposure to measles for an unvaccinated person can be very harmful and even deadly,” she said.There have been no reported cases of measles in D.C. but the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention confirmed cases in Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania which are all states with large numbers of people who commute to the District regularly. The “Don’t Wait, Vaccinate” campaign is an appeal to the parents of children and teens attending school in the District to immunize their young learner’s before the start of the 2019-2020 school year. Just having 95 percent of the population vaccinated tremendously prevents the possibility of  measles spreading and creates a safety net for those most vulnerable to the disease such as newborns and immunocompromised people. D.C Health has published the immunization requirements for the 2019-2020 school year which can be found here. Currently in the District, the immunization compliance breakdown is as follows: Public Schools (93.02 percent), Charter (93.25 percent), Private (91.95 percent), Parochial (87.29 percent) and LCDC (89.72 percent).“We know that it’s more than likely we can have an outbreak that spreads very quickly if our rates are below 95 percent,” said Director of the D.C. Department of Health LaQuandra Nesbitt “What we benefit from… .called herd immunity.. .goes away when we’re below 95 percent. So we all need to band together and have our children vaccinated so that we can get those rates back up above 95 percent.” The District’s current immunization rate is 91 percent. Although in 2000 the measles was declared eliminated by the United States, in 2019 1,123 cases have been confirmed by the CDC in 28 states in the US.last_img read more

Steam Summer Sale 2013 deals to watch out for

Posted on by

first_imgUpdate: The Steam Summer Sale is live! Check it out.It looks like the Steam Summer Sale is about to begin, and that’s bad news for your wallet. Well, at least you’re going to get some good deals. There are a ton of games likely to go on sale, but let’s take a quick peek at some of the best ones to look out for.If you’ve been putting off playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, this is probably going to be your chance. The game has been out for a while, and Bethesda has said it’s done making DLC for it. There is now a Skyrim legendary edition with all the expansions on Steam for $60, but that’s a prime target for the big sale. Expect a sizable discount on this one.Kerbal Space Program is another game likely to go on sale. This has been one of the big hits of Steam’s new Early Access program, and it’s cross-platform. This game has you building your own space program in a sandbox kind of environment. It’s currently $22.99, but it could drop quite a bit.The Walking Dead games are a very different experience. It’s about zombies, but it’s basically the furthest thing from Dead Island you can imagine. The Walking Dead is about the characters and the decisions you make throughout the experience. The newest episode just came out, so you can expect to see the past ones come down in price during the sale. A pack of the previous episodes currently sells for $24.99. Under $10 seems possible.If you want a little more action in your super-cheap game, start camping out on the Borderlands 2 page. This action RPG shooter gets a lot of promotion from Steam, and it’s getting to the age that a big discount is possible. It’s currently selling for $29.99 — this could be a big one.There are also a number of new indie games in Steam that have a good shot at going on sale. Prison Architect is a good best since it’s currently $30. Fez just hit the PC, and it’s a very popular title that could do well on sale. Knights of Pen Paper +1, Gunpoint, and Rogue Legacy could also make a splash with even modest discounts.Finally, keep a lookout for bundle deals. Steam is always offering franchise packs with multiple games, but the prices tend to come down during the sale. You could get all your gaming content in one purchase if you time it right. The Valve pack will probably go on sale for a ridiculously low number, for example. The Grand Theft Auto complete pack costs $49.99, and the Rockstar pack is $59.97. Both of these could drop significantly now that the company has moved on to GTA V. Assassin’s Creed and Civilization are also collections to watch for.Whatever you do, don’t buy any full price game right now. If you don’t want to spend money on awesome things, better bury your wallet in the backyard — no one can resist the allure of the Steam Summer Sale.last_img read more
