Statistics Canada says adults living with parents are employed and single

OTTAWA — A Statistics Canada report is digging deeper into what kind of adults live with their parents, and the agency finds they’re often employed and single.Almost two million Canadians aged 25 to 64 lived with at least one parent in 2017, more than double than in 1995.Close to three-quarters of them have never left home.Seventy per cent are single but they’re not just melting into the couch. Almost three-quarters have some form of employment.The report released Friday also notes that South Asian and Chinese Canadians were more likely to live at home.The agency says further analysis could reveal what motivates Canadians to live with their parents at a time when more are doing so than ever before.The Canadian Press

CN CEO says railway is not the bad guy for delayed forest

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email EDMONTON – Canadian National Railway is firing back at the forest products industry over a rail bottleneck that companies say is preventing them from cashing in on recovering housing and other markets in the U.S. and abroad.CEO Claude Mongeau said CN had increased the number of rail cars that were earmarked to carry timber and other wood products by 11 per cent, but all that rolling stock was slowed by a harsh, snowy winter.Mongeau said it is wrong to paint the railways as the villain for the delays.“We could not meet every order and we are working hard as we speak to recover,” Mongeau said in response to a shareholder’s question at CN’s (TSX:CNR) annual general meeting Tuesday.“If you just try to paint the railroad as the bad guy, eventually you deprive of us of our ability to be the true backbone (of the economy) that we want to be, and that is the message I would send to the forest products association.”The Forest Products Association of Canada said delays in wood product shipments by CN and Canadian Pacific Railway (TSX:CP) are affecting companies across the country.In some cases up to half of the rail cars requested by companies are not being delivered, said Catherine Cobden, the association’s executive vice-president.The fact that companies are facing these delays when the market for their products is rebounding after years in the doldrums is frustrating.Blaming the rail delays on the cold and snow is no excuse, she said.“I can only say that we have winter every year and we are looking for reliable service,” Cobden said from Ottawa.“The significant upturn is being felt in the U.S. Our need to have reliable service that we can count on when we order the cars that they show up so we can meet the needs of our customers. It is a business imperative. Without it, we basically struggle to get our products to market.”The delays underscore the need for the federal government to pass the proposed Fair Rail Freight Service Act that is before Parliament, she said.The association contends that Bill C-52 would help ensure that rail shippers deliver their goods in a timely, predictable, cost-effective way.Mongeau told shareholders that CN still believes that a deregulated rail system is in the best interests of Canada’s economy.He said the industry would be better served if the federal government focused more on trade, improving the supply chain and innovation.“Keeping to a deregulation agenda has been so successful to Canada over the last 20 years is the right approach,” he said, noting if the bill passes CN will work with stakeholders to ensure the new legislation doesn’t stifle innovation or impede service to customers.Company officials also faced a question from a shareholder over the safety of the railway’s plan to ship more crude by rail.CN said it shipped more than 30,000 carloads of crude in 2012 and hopes to double that amount this year, including sending bitumen from Alberta’s oilsands to the U.S. Gulf Coast.Mongeau said the railways have an enviable safety record and CN will do what it can to expand this new niche transportation market.“It is something that is good for CN but also good for the energy industry,” he said. “Getting to market is critical to adding value to the product.”On Monday CN announced it was maintaining its forecast for a stronger year in 2013 despite suffering a harsh winter that delayed trains and increased costs.The company said it expects to report high-single-digit adjusted earnings per share growth on top of the $5.61 per share it earned last year.The company said it earned $555 million or $1.30 per share for the quarter ended March 31. The results compared with a profit of $775 million or $1.75 per share a year ago, when it gained $252 million from the sale of rail lines in the Toronto area to Metrolinx.Excluding one-time gains, the Montreal-based railway said it earned $519 million or $1.22 per share for the quarter compared with $523 million of $1.18 per share a year ago when the company had more shares outstanding.Revenues increased five per cent to $2.47 billion, from $2.35 billion a year ago, while revenue ton-miles rose three per cent and carloadings increased two per cent. by John Cotter, The Canadian Press Posted Apr 23, 2013 3:50 pm MDT CN CEO says railway is not the bad guy for delayed forest product shipments read more

G7 may take action for economic and financial stability after Brit vote

G7 may take action for economic and financial stability after Brit vote to leave EU by The Canadian Press Posted Jun 24, 2016 7:24 am MDT Last Updated Jun 24, 2016 at 7:45 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email OTTAWA – The Group of Seven advanced economies says it’s prepared to take measures to stabilize economic and financial stability in the wake of the British vote to leave the European Union.A statement from the G7 says it respects the outcome of the vote and says it’s confident the British economy and financial sectors remain resilient.But it also adds that it recognizes “excessive volatility and disorderly movements” in exchange rates can have an adverse impact on economic and financial stability.It says G7 central banks have taken steps to ensure adequate liquidity and to support the functioning of markets, and adds it’s prepared to use “established liquidity instruments” to that end.The G7 includes Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, United Kingdom and the United States.

Colombia UN human rights chief reaffirms ongoing collaboration in wake of peace

“I promise that we, the UN human rights office, as foreseen in the text, will follow the progress of the numerous human rights aspects of the peace accords closely. I will not hesitate to speak out, or intervene in other ways, in the event of any serious violations or omissions by either side,” stressed Mr. Zeid. He further noted that he will pay close attention to the fulfilment of the guarantees for the protection of members of Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC-EP) from physical violence, and stigmatization, made by the Government. “It is of fundamental importance that there is no repeat of the deplorable assassinations that have followed – and sometimes wrecked – previous peace agreements,” he said. The High Commissioner also underlined the importance of accountability and justice, and said that these must be in line with international standards when it comes to violations and abuses such as war crimes, crimes and against humanity and very serious violations of human rights. He also called for immediate steps be taken to consolidate peace and urged the Government to create a schedule for the implementation of the accords it has reached with social movements and communities, but not implemented and said that OHCHR will continue to offer support to this vital process. Noting the threats posed by illicit economies to human rights, the UN rights stressed the importance for all parts of Colombian society to work towards transforming these such economies as well as on the State to create a set of incentives to facilitate successor groups of paramilitaries to stop their illegal activities and contribute to the country transformation so that finally, in a few years’ time, Colombia can benefit from complete peace. “I wish to pay tribute here to the Government of Colombia […] for having the foresight to invite, and then accept and retain, the presence of a UN human rights office in the country,” said Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein at the press conference in Bogotá. “Unlike many other governments around the world, Colombia has accepted that we are fiercely independent; that we will criticize them from time to time, as well as their opponents; that we play the role of the blunt friend prepared to speak plain truths when necessary,” he added. The OHCHR presence in Colombia was established in April 1997 and has since been working to strengthen human rights protection and promotion there. Hailing the progress made by Colombia in improving its human rights situation in the past 19 years, the High Commissioner said: “[These] are perhaps nowhere more apparent than in the text of the Final Peace Accord, which contains 353 references to ‘rights,’ and a preamble which stresses that the entire accord is permeated with human rights, as well as a strong focus on gender.” The Accord also has five specific references to the role OHCHR is requested to play during its implementation.

Fred VanVleet says Raptors ready to move on from Kawhi Leonard

Hours after VanVleet hosted the basketball camp Leonard broke his silence for the first time as he was officially introduced as a member of the Los Angeles Clippers.“I want to thank the Toronto Raptors fans, I don’t have social media so I’m not able to put out a paragraph or whatever. But, I just want to thank all of Toronto, the city the country. We had an amazing season also had the best parade ever.”“I also want to thank the city as far as the restaurants giving out that Ka’wine and Dine through the playoffs, I took advantage of that.” Fred VanVleet was one of the backbones of the Toronto Raptors playoff run. VanVleet knows that with the departure of Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green that he is going to have to take on more of a leadership role with the team.“You hope to just inspire and I lead by example. I’ve been a vocal leader since I’ve been with the Raptors and I’m going to continue to keep growing,” Fred said at Humber College where he was hosting a week-long camp for hundreds of kids to help develop basketball skills as part of the Raptors Basketball Academy. “Obviously as my role continues to grow, my leadership will continue to grow. I’m one of those guys who is going to be a voice. We have our vets but there are a few of us younger guys who are going to speak up when we need to speak up.” .@raptors @FredVanVleet teaching over 200 kids today for the teams 14th annual #raptors Basketball Academy. #WeTheNorth @CityNews pic.twitter.com/o3fnFAlnYP— Lindsay Dunn (@LindsayDunnTV) July 24, 2019 VanVleet says there are no hard feelings when it comes to Leonard’s decision not to re-sign with Toronto.“We don’t talk about free agency with guys we won a championship. We had a good time and you leave him to do what he has to do and you have to respect and appreciate what he gave to us. You know now we are back to work and we are looking forward to this year.”With the departure of Leonard many sports analysts have been writing the Raptors off. For the third year Raptor, he says that’s normal.“They did the same thing last year and look at what happened,” says VanVleet. “We are hungry and we are hungry again. We had a great run and we had a good time. We won a ring but your career doesn’t stop because you won a championship so we are all hungry and thirsty to get back to the championship Finals.”It’s not known yet when the Raptors and Clippers will face each other next season as the NBA schedule hasn’t been released yet. read more

Absolute disgrace Tim Farron under fire for refusing to answer when asked

He said “no I do not [think that]”.On Tuesday night, Channel 4’s Cathy Newman asked the Liberal Democrats leader about his views on LGBT rights and gay people. She asked: “A while back I asked you if you thought that homosexuality was a sin and you struggled to answer. “Now you’ve had a while to consider that question, what is the answer?”He replied: “I don’t think I struggled to answer it at all, Cathy. I think I’m not in the position to make theological announcements over the next six weeks. “I’m not going to spend my time talking theology or making pronouncements.”She reminded the Lib Dem leader that in 2015 she had asked him three times if homosexuality was a sin “and you said ‘we’re all sinners’. Is that still the answer?”  Writer Owen Jones said: “This is an absolute disgrace. But hey, I’m just some sinning gay, what would I know.”Tim Farron has said his abstention on the same-sex marriage bill does not mean he doesn’t support it.He, along with nine other Lib Dem MPs, abstained at the third reading of the same-sex marriage bill, despite previously voting for the legislation.

Hostility and anger towards church on social media is stopping abuse survivors

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Hostility and anger towards the church on social media is stopping abuse survivors coming forward, the Church of England’s General Synod has heard. Speaking in a debate about new plans to tackle sexual, spiritual and other forms of abuse in the Church, Canon Simon Butler, chair of the house of clergy, warned that church staff were being unfairly targeted for criticism. He told the church’s governing body, which is meeting this weekend in York, that he had been contacted by “a number of survivors” who “feel inhibited about sharing their stories publicly because of the public tone of the conversation”. In one case, a woman had told him that she had tried to speak out about her experience on social media but had been shouted down “by one or two people, one a survivor”. “The silencing will cause further damage”, he warned.  Mr Butler said he was “ashamed” of the language used to talk about people working for the National Church Institutions (NCIs), a group of organisations including Lambeth Palace and the Archbishops’ Council, some of which manage abuse complaints.“They are people, they are not heartless functionaries. If survivors have names, so do our staff,” he said. “I’m sometimes ashamed of the way that some members of Synod claiming to speak on behalf of survivors speak about our staff. “Many of them are not practising Christians, when we talk about how the world sees the church we should remember that. “So we find ourselves in something of a standoff between disgruntled survivors and the NCIs, and the anger and frustration is palpable, chiefly on social media,” he said. Mr Butler, who is the vicar of St Mary’s, Battersea, urged bishops to “heal the breach” with the group of “rightly angry survivors”. He was speaking in a debate over new measures which include introducing a new policy for clergy selection and propose the creation of an independent ombudsman to manage complaints about how abuse allegations have been dealt with. They were overwhelmingly approved by the Church.  I’m sometimes ashamed of the way that some members of Synod claiming to speak on behalf of survivors speak about our staff. Canon Simon Butler Introducing the measures, Peter Hancock, the bishop of Bath and Wells, and the church’s lead safeguarding bishop, said it had spent £7m on safeguarding in 2018, up from £37,000 in 2013. “Over the years, the Church and its leaders have singularly failed to see what was before our eyes.“We did not give safeguarding the prominence it deserved,” he admitted. The debate came after a report released last month found that a review carried out by the church into the scale of abuse had underestimated the figures and counted cases inconsistently. Sir Roger Singleton’s report into the Past Cases Review, which took place a decade ago, concluded that close to 100 cases were whittled down to just a handful and that the church had “downplayed” the issue in public statements to avoid reputational damage.  read more

Albert Dryden who shot council officer dead over planning row dies a

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Alex Watson, a lifelong friend of Dryden and now an Independent Durham County Councillor, describes the case as “tragic” as Dryden and Collinson had known each other well.Watson claims that the murder “should have been prevented – the media and the police were there,” and that the police were aware of Dryden’s history of collecting weapons. Albert Dryden, who shot dead planning officer Harry Collinson in direct view of TV cameras, has died aged 77 following his release from prison just last year.Dryden became infamous in 1991 when he shot dead planning officer and father-of-two Harry Collinson in County Durham, in a desperate bid to protect his illegally built bungalow from being demolished.Albert Dryden pulled out a First World War revolver and used it to fire at Harry Collinson, as Harry and his team pressed to demolish the bungalow in front of TV crew and news journalists.The murder was captured by BBC camera crew and Derwentside District Council photographers.Video footage shows Mr Collison requesting for the cameraman to document Albert Dryden’s gun. Dryden then proceeds to shoot Harry Collinson in the chest, before climbing a fence and firing another 5 shots at Harry and the countless planning officers, council members and journalists at the scene. Albert was convicted of murder and the attempted murder of a solicitor, alongside being charged for wounding a police officer and BBC journalist Tony Belmont. He was handed a life sentence in 1992, despite claiming that he was mentally unstable and was not responsible for his actions.

Wentworth owners accuse manager of mishandling 32000 bottles of wine worth almost

The pair have sued and counter-sued each other over the management of Reignwood in recent years. Their relationship soured in 2016 after Reignwood proposed to cut the number of members from 4,000 to just over 800, and those invited to remain would be charged a one-off payment of £100,000 before annual fees were taken into account. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. The owner of one of Britain’s most prestigious golf clubs is suing its former head of international operations over 32,000 unaccounted for bottles of wine worth nearly £5 million.Reignwood, which is owned by Chinese billionaire Chanchai Ruayrungruang, bought Wentworth golf club for £135 million in 2014 from the restaurateur Richard Caring, but it has been mired in controversy over extortionate green fees and membership costs ever since.Now, Reignwood claims that Ni Songhua has “refused to provide an account of his stewardship” of the wine, worth £4.8m, bought from Berry Bros & Rudd.Last year, as part of a redevelopment of the facilities at Wentworth, a new clubhouse was built at a cost of £13 million.According to Golf Monthly, two new private dining rooms – the East and West – have been installed for member functions, and the clubhouse now has 25 chefs and a dedicated wine sommelier.

It is a small matter.”Neither Mr Songhua nor Mr Ruayrungruang could be reached for comment. There are five drinking and dining areas in total – The Dining Room, the Club Lounge, the Club Bar, the Burma Bar and the Conservatory.Although Wentworth golf club declined to provide the Telegraph with their full wine list, or comment on the claims, it is understood that the bars at the members’ club are operating as usual. Those plans were abandoned after uproar from members, but fees have since risen from £8,000 to £13,500 per year, while membership is said to have declined by 40 per cent in the past two years.Famous faces at the club include former England cricket captain Kevin Pietersen and broadcaster Sir Michael Parkinson, who has been a member for more than 25 years along with his wife, Mary.In 2016, he spoke out about changes at Wentworth, telling the Telegraph that the new owners “came in without any regard for the traditions or feelings of members of the club”.He said: “A lot of members will go elsewhere. Maybe that is what Reignwood want. Maybe they will get their car park full of Lamborghinis. It seems to be the super-rich golf clubs I have visited are soulless places used by oligarchs.”Mr Songhua alleges that Mr Ruayrungruang reneged on a series of promises to reward him for buying overseas assets for the group, and told the Financial Times: “I think Chanchai is very good at getting people to trust him and do projects for him.“But when the time comes to pay up, then he goes cool on you, and you find the deal is not what you thought you had.” The golf club’s links with Berry Bros go further than just providing wine. On the retailer’s website, there is an advertisement for a black tie event at Wentworth, hosted by Mark Siddle, who runs Burgundy vineyard Domaine Bertagna along with his wife Eva Reh.Tasting wines include the 2000 Vougeot Blanc, Premier Cru, which retails at around £500 for a case of six, as well as the 1999 Vosne-Romane, Les Beaux Monts, Premier Cru, which costs £1,200 for six bottles.According to The Sunday Times, Mr Songhua said the claim about his stewardship of the wine was “without merit” and that it was a “pure tactical play to put more pressure on me”.He added that, while some of the wine had been used for entertainment, most of the bottles were still in storage.This is the latest chapter in the long-running feud between Mr Songhua and Mr Ruayrungruang, who is one of Asia’s richest men with a fortune estimated at $11bn.

MEPs approve EUwide ban on range of single use plastics by 2021

That’s to increase to 30% by 2030.The Single-Use Plastics Directive voted on today passed by 560 votes to 35 in the Strasbourg assembly. The measures had been proposed to tackle marine litter coming from the 10 single-use plastic products most often found on European beaches, as well as abandoned fishing gear and oxo-degradable plastics.The EU Commission said the ban is on selected single-use products made of plastic for which alternatives exist on the market. This includes cotton bud sticks, cutlery, plates, straws, stirrers, sticks for balloons, as well as cups, food and beverage containers made of expanded polystyrene and on all products made of oxo-degradable plastic.Commenting on today’s vote, Sinn Féin MEP Lynn Boylan said while it is a “positive first step” more needs to be done to reduce plastic waste. “The bans are great and they will help but there is a whole range of plastic pollution out there that we need to get to grips with,” Boylan told EuroParlRadio. center_img Share359 Tweet Email2 That’s about dealing with that throw-away culture. We see those cheap discount stores, all of those that are always promoting plastic tat basically and telling you that you need to be buying it. According to the EU Commission, the products prohibited under the law represent 70% of the waste that pours into the world’s oceans, posing a threat to wildlife and fisheries.EU Commission Vice-President Frans Timmermans said Europe was not the worst source of plastic pollution, but that the pioneering measure could serve as an example to the world.“Asian countries are very much interested in what we’re doing. Latin American countries too,” he said.“Even though our share of the pollution is relatively limited, our change of the economic model has a global impact.”Rules insisting that polluters pay the costs of a clean-up are strengthened, particularly for cigarette manufacturers, who will have to support the recycling of discarded filters.With reporting from © – AFP, 2019  By Adam Daly MEPs approve EU-wide ban on range of single use plastics by 2021 The law passed by 560 votes to 35 in the Strasbourg assembly. 41 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

first_imgRussian opposition leader Alexei Navalny walks along a street in Moscow on Monday after the election commission rejected his presidential bid. Photo: AFPRussia’s Central Election Commission on Monday unanimously rejected top opposition figure Alexei Navalny’s bid to run against President Vladimir Putin next year, leading him to urge a boycott of the polls.The commission voted 12 to zero in barring Navalny from the presidential election, citing a controversial embezzlement conviction for which he received a five year suspended sentence.Navalny’s crime qualifies as “serious” and therefore rids the individual of the right to stand for president,” said commission member Boris Ebzeyev ahead of the vote, urging the body to bar him from running.The decision prompted the 41-year-old protest leader-who maintains that the court case against him was fabricated for political reasons-to call for a boycott of the election.“We are declaring a strike by voters. We will ask everyone to boycott these elections. We will not recognise the result,” Navalny told journalists.He said he would still appeal the commission’s decision.Navalny held rallies across Russia Sunday, with more than 15,000 people endorsing his candidacy. He submitted his nomination on Sunday evening and expressed suspicion when the commission announced they would make the decision as quickly as the next day.In a video published after the decision, Navalny said that offices he set up for his presidential campaign will now turn into a network for the electoral strike.“To go to polling stations now is impossible and indecent,” he said.“The main goal of the Kremlin will now be to falsify election turnout,” he said, urging people who want to go to the polling station count the people attending instead of casting a ballot.‘Electoral strikes’Navalny, who has campaigned across Russia in recent months, argued earlier in front of the commission that his conviction was lifted in the European Court of Human Rights, and that banning him from participation would make March’s election illegitimate.“I proved in court that my case was fabricated,” Navalny said, urging the commission to make a decision that would be fair and independent.“I assure you, a huge amount of people will not go to this election, would actively boycott this election” and hold “electoral strikes.”In a passionate speech he accused the commission of barring true opposition figures while allowing candidates who are not interested in fighting corruption or in conducting real campaigns.In a heated exchange, commission chair Ella Panfilova told Navalny it is not in her power to lift his conviction, further accusing the protest leader of “zombifying young people”.“You are young, you have everything ahead of you,” she finally told Navalny. Previously he was told he would not be able to run before 2028.Navalny, who has built a sizeable campaign through his blog and YouTube on an anti-corruption platform, has called several mass rallies across Russia this year which saw an unusually high number of young people participate.Navalny was first sentenced in 2013 on the embezzlement charges, which accused him of defrauding the Kirov regional budget of about $270,000.The European Court of Human Rights last year quashed the ruling, saying it was unfair, and Russia’s Supreme Court ordered a retrial.The retrial in a Russian court however gave Navalny the exact same sentence as before, using almost identical wording as the 2013 decision.last_img read more
