Hill introduces another Crime Bill

first_imgOn the final day of business prior to the holiday weekend, the Tory government House Leader introduced another crime bill in the federal Commons. Jay Hill, whose is also the Prince George/Peace River MP, says this legislation is designed to modernize criminal procedure and make the justice system more effective and efficient. Among other things the bill would create a new offence, to help prevent individuals from fleeing a province or territory, in order to avoid prosecution. – Advertisement -Another provision would streamline the identification process in police stations, by allowing fingerprinting and photographing of persons, in lawful custody, as they await charges or convictions for specific offences.

Exams and report cards may become mandate as full-scale strike becomes a real possibility

first_imgMeantime, the teacher’s rotating strikes will resume tomorrow in Victoria, and then extend across the province’s other 59 school districts the following three days. While the B.C. Teachers Federation plans to hold its full-scale rank and file strike vote today and tomorrow, the B.C. Public School Employers’ are seeking a Labor Relations Board order to design all services required to complete grade 10 – 12 essential, including the completion of exams and report cards.   “The Ministry of Education and the British Columbia Public School Employers Association want to assure parents that every effort is being made to ensure the strike does not disadvantage students, not delay their transition to the next grade or on to post-secondary,” a report from the Ministry of Education reads. The ministry and employers association are arguing that serious and immediate damage will be caused to secondary students’ educational programs if final grades are not compiled.- Advertisement -Premier Christy Clark says a full-scale walk out is not a necessary tool for bargaining.“Bargaining can happen without job action,” argues Clark” “…My hope would be that the union would come to the table ready to bargain, we can get it solved, and that’s what would put all of this behind us.”Clark adds she has no plans to meet with Iker at this time.Advertisementlast_img read more

Some of those include state Sens. Martha Escutia, D-Norwalk, and Gloria Romero and Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina. The area represented by Firebaugh when he was in the Assembly – Bell Gardens, Cudahy and Huntington Park – also could be said to be important territory, he said. “The people from Marco’s district will have to look at the other two candidates,” Smith said. “They may or may not be familiar with Mr. Calderon or Mr. Bermudez.” Caroline Heldman, associate professor of political science at Whittier College, said she still expects the race to be hard fought. “It feels like a race between an up-and-coming Democrat star \ who has made good use of the media during his time in office versus an established statesman who brings with the mantle of a successful political family name.” FIREBAUGH SERVICES: A rosary recitation and viewing will be held at 7 p.m. Sunday at La Placita Church, 535 N. Main St., Los Angeles. A memorial Mass will be held at 9 a.m. Monday at Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, 555W. Temple St., Los Angeles. Burial will follow at Rose Hills Cemetery, 3888 S. Workman Mill Road, Whittier. A reception will be held at Tamayo’s Restaurant, 5300 E. Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles.

HARTE LAUNCHES SCATHING ATTACK ON McCONALOGUE FOR ‘MISLEAIDNG THE PUBLIC”

first_imgDonegal Senator Jimmy Harte has launched a stinging attack on fellow Donegal politician Charlie McConalogue.Senator Harte is furious at Deputy McConalogueFianna Fail Deputy McConalogue described a proposal by the Labour Party’s Aodhán Ó Riordáin to cut chaplaincy services from VECs and community schools as the latest front in the party’s ‘Culture War’, criticising the plan as ‘typically myopic and mean spirited’.But Letterkenny-based Senator Harte said “The antics of FF and Mc Conalogue are not surprising in light of their record on their performance whilst in government over the generations “He is scaremongering and trying to use the Church and the people of Donegal to make a poor political point.“The opinion of one Labour TD in Dublin has no bearing on the forthcoming budget and the deputy knows that. He is trying to link a proposal by a TD to government policy.”He added “This type of politics by Deputy Mc Conalogue has no place in local or national discussion.“There are no plans to change any arrangement with the chaplain service in educational institutions. “I would describe Deputy Mc Conalugues rambling as cognitive flatulence.” HARTE LAUNCHES SCATHING ATTACK ON McCONALOGUE FOR ‘MISLEAIDNG THE PUBLIC” was last modified: September 3rd, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
