Heres a list of March inflation rates for selected Canadian cities

OTTAWA — Canada’s national annual inflation rate was 1.9 per cent in March, Statistics Canada says. The agency also released rates for major cities, but cautioned that figures may have fluctuated widely because they are based on small statistical samples (previous month in brackets):— St. John’s, N.L.: 1.0 per cent (0.5)— Charlottetown-Summerside: 1.1 (0.4)— Halifax: 1.3 (1.1)— Saint John, N.B.: 1.7 (1.0)— Quebec: 1.2 (0.9)— Montreal: 1.9 (1.6)— Ottawa: 1.7 (1.7)— Toronto: 2.0 (1.9)— Thunder Bay, Ont.: 1.2 (1.0)— Winnipeg: 2.2 (1.8)— Regina: 1.6 (1.2)— Saskatoon: 1.6 (1.2)— Edmonton: 2.1 (1.6)— Calgary: 2.1 (1.4)— Vancouver: 2.5 (2.2)— Victoria: 2.7 (2.3)The Canadian Press

UN and partners issue joint call for cohesion among Somalias leaders

13 September 2010Fractures in Somalia’s leadership could potentially be extremely damaging to a country long ravaged by war, misrule and humanitarian suffering, the United Nations and its partners cautioned today, urging the heads of the nation’s Transitional Federal Institutions (TFIs) to maintain a united front. Augustine Mahiga, the Special Representative of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon; Boubacar Diarra, the Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission for Somalia; and Kipruto Arap Kirwa, Somalia Facilitator for the InterGovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), issued their joint statement following a meeting with Somali President Sheikh Sharif Ahmed in Mogadishu last week.“Many members of the international community have worked tirelessly to support the current administration and we know they join us in calling for the leadership of the TFIs to remain cohesive and focused on security and transitional tasks at such a critical time,” they said.Somalia’s transition phase ends next August, giving the current Government less than a year to wrap up its remaining priority tasks.“The end of the transition period will give Somalis the opportunity to determine a new political dispensation, but there is much work to be done before then,” the envoys said. “There is no time to waste.”Those who stand to gain the most from the current divisions are the extremists trying to take control of Somalia, they stressed, underlining the need for internal cohesion to foster peace and stability. The country has not had a functioning national government since 1991.Somali troops and peacekeepers serving with the AU’s peacekeeping mission (AMISOM) risk their lives daily to protect the TFIs and “to defend the integrity of the peace process,” the statement said.“The leaders and politicians need to demonstrate their unity of purpose to show they are working together to restore peace to Somalia.” read more

Nearly half of all fish eaten today farmed not caught UN food

Nearly half the fish consumed as food worldwide are raised on fish farms rather than caught in the wild, says a new report from the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).“The State of World Aquaculture 2006,” which was presented to delegates from more than 50 countries attending an FAO meeting on the issue in New Delhi, shows that while in 1980 just 9 per cent of the fish consumed by human beings came from aquaculture, that figure has jumped to 43 per cent today.That amounts to 45.5 million tonnes of farmed fish, worth $63 billion, eaten each year. Currently, freshwater and marine capture fisheries produce 95 million tonnes annually, of which 60 million tonnes is destined for human consumption, the FAO said.Globally, consumer demand for fish continues to climb, especially in affluent, developed nations which in 2004 imported 33 million tonnes of fish worth over $61 billion, or 81 per cent of all fish imports that year, in value terms.But levels of captures of fish in the wild have remained roughly stable since the mid-1980s, hovering around 90 to 93 million tonnes annually.There is little chance of any significant increases in catches beyond these levels, FAO says.The agency’s most recent global assessment of wild fish stocks found that out of the nearly 600 species groups it monitors, 52 per cent are fully exploited while 25 per cent are either overexploited, depleted or recovering from depletion. Twenty per cent are moderately exploited, with just three percent ranked as underexploited.“Catches in the wild are still high, but they have levelled off, probably for good,” said Rohana Subasinghe of FAO’s Fisheries Department and Secretary of the Sub-Committee on Aquaculture.The FAO report estimates that an additional 40 million tonnes of aquatic food will be required by 2030 just to maintain current levels of consumption.The only option for meeting future demand for fish, the agency said, is by farming them.“Aquaculture is crucial to the fight against global hunger,” said Ichiro Nomura, FAO Assistant Director-General for Fisheries. “We must ensure that the sector continues to expand, sustainably, to provide more people with food and income, especially in areas like sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, where hunger and poverty prevail.” read more

US auto sales fall in Sept but companies predict rebound despite government

DETROIT – Automakers expect little impact from the federal government shutdown, and they predict a fourth-quarter rebound after a rare sales decline in September.Auto sales dropped 4 per cent from a year ago to just over 1.1 million, mainly due to a calendar quirk that pulled Labor Day weekend transactions into August’s numbers. The drop ended a 27-month streak of gains for the industry.General Motors, Honda and Volkswagen reported double-digit declines for last month. Toyota, Nissan and Hyundai posted smaller decreases. Only Ford and Chrysler reported gains among the bigger automakers.GM’s 11 per cent drop was its first since July of last year. It allowed Ford to get within 2,049 vehicles of unseating GM as the top U.S. automaker for the first time since May of 2011.Most industry officials viewed September as an anomaly. They also downplayed the impact of the government shutdown, assuming it’s a short one.Kurt McNeil, GM’s U.S. sales chief, said the fundamentals are still in place for GM and the industry to rebound in the coming months. Jobless claims are falling, home prices continue to recover, gas prices are down, household wealth is rising and the Federal Reserve has postponed the end of a bond-buying program that kept interest rates low, he said.“As long as the underlying economic factors are supporting the business, which we believe they will through the end of this year and into 2014, we’ll get through this turbulence,” said Ken Czubay, Ford’s U.S. sales manager.Jim Lentz, Toyota’s North American CEO, told The Associated Press in an interview that people have grown used to dysfunction in Washington.Earlier this year, when the government failed to avoid automatic spending cuts known as sequestration, there were predictions that the economy would melt down, Lentz said.“Basically they were told that when you wake up tomorrow, the Earth is going to stop spinning,” Lentz said. “For the most part the Earth didn’t stop. And I think that’s how they view this again.”The shutdown will only affect sales if it causes credit markets to tighten, Lentz said. That will be a problem, he said, because low interest rates and abundant credit have helped fuel the auto sales recovery.There was concern among executives and analysts that a long shutdown — and a looming confrontation over raising the government’s debt ceiling — could eventually cause sales to fall. McNeil said anything over two weeks could cut into consumer confidence.“Consumers don’t like to make big-ticket item purchases when there’s a lot of uncertainty in the economy,” said Jesse Toprak, senior analyst for the TrueCar.com auto pricing site.One reason GM’s sales fell last month was a reversal in pickup trucks, which have been hot-sellers. Sales of GM’s full-sized pickups, the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, fell 8 per cent even though the company is selling redesigned trucks.Some versions of the trucks were slow to reach showrooms. At the same time, Ford’s F-Series pickup, the top-selling vehicle in the nation, posted nearly a 10 per cent increase, and sales of Chrysler’s Ram truck rose 8 per cent.Ford and Chrysler offered more than $4,000 in discounts as they sold down 2013 models, according to the Edmunds.com auto site. But GM reduced its incentive spending almost 30 per cent compared with last year to about $3,900.While touting its incentive discipline in September, GM announced increased discounts starting Tuesday, including $1,000 cash on a 2014 Silverado and up to $4,500 on a 2013 model.Pickup trucks are traditionally the top-selling vehicles in the U.S., and they’re key to automakers’ profits. Companies make around $10,000 per truck.McNeil said GM’s sales should return to normal levels for the rest of the year. Through September, the company’s sales are up almost 8 per cent from a year ago.At Honda, sales dropped 10 per cent as two of its most popular models, the Accord midsize car and the CR-V small crossover SUV, posted declines. Sales of the Accord, which have been hot all year, fell nearly 14 per cent, while CR-V sales were off almost 4 per cent.Other automakers reporting sales included:—Ford Motor Co. bucked the industry trend with a 6 per cent sales increase. It was led by sales of the Fusion midsize sedan, which jumped 62 per cent over last September. The subcompact Fiesta posted nearly a 29 per cent gain. But sales of the Escape SUV — one of Ford’s bestsellers — dropped 2 per cent, and Explorer SUV sales were up just 1.5 per cent.—Chrysler Group LLC, with a 1 per cent increase aided by the Ram and the ever-popular Jeep Grand Cherokee with sales up 19 per cent.—Toyota Motor Corp., which posted a 4 per cent sales drop. Sales of the midsize Camry, the top-selling car in the U.S., fell 7 per cent, but the redesigned Corolla compact posted a 1 per cent increase.—Nissan Motor Co. reported a sales drop of nearly 6 per cent. The company’s top-selling Altima midsize car, posted a 13 per cent sales decline.—Volkswagen AG, which has struggled all year against strong 2012 numbers, had a poor month. Its top-seller, the Jetta small car, posted a nearly 10 per cent sales decline.—Hyundai Motor Co., which also has struggled this year, posted an 8 per cent decline. Sales of its Sonata midsize car were down 20 per cent. by Tom Krisher And Dee-Ann Durbin, The Associated Press Posted Oct 1, 2013 8:06 am MDT US auto sales fall in Sept., but companies predict rebound despite government shutdown AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

NHL Sides Take Step Backward In Negotiations To End

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman  was “thoroughly disappointed” in three counter-proposals from the players’ association on Thursday and left the negotiating table pessimistic about a resolution.No new talks have been scheduled, and the possibility of a full hockey regular season is quickly shrinking.“Today is not a good day,” NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr said.Thursday’s meetings, according to Bettman, were a “step backward,” while Fehr insists the NHL was only willing to work off its offer from Tuesday, rejecting the players’ three counteroffers.The union offered multiple options in response to the NHL’s offer on Tuesday that called for an 82-game season and a 50-50 split of hockey-related revenues between owners and players.Said Blues captain David Backes in a text to ESPN.com: “We feel our newest proposal took a great step toward getting a deal done. It’s too bad the owners don’t feel that way and I fear that we may miss an extended amount of time now.”Bettman said that proposal was the “best that we could do” and added that the two sides are still far apart.“None of the three variations of player share that they gave us even began to approach 50-50, either at all or for some long period of time,” Bettman said.“It’s clear we’re not speaking the same language.”Fehr said two of the union’s proposals would have the players take a fixed amount of revenue, which would turn into an approximate 50-50 split over the term of the deal, provided league revenues continued to grow.The third approach would be a 50-50 split, as long as the league honored all existing contracts at full value.Deputy commissioner Bill Daly contradicted what Fehr said was included in the third proposal, saying in a statement: “The so-called 50-50 deal, plus honoring current contracts proposed by the NHL Players’ Association earlier today is being misrepresented. It is not a 50-50 deal. It is, most likely a 56- to 57-percent deal in Year One and never gets to 50 percent during the proposed five-year term of the agreement.“The proposal contemplates paying the Players approximately $650 million outside of the Players’ Share. In effect, the Union is proposing to change the accounting rules to be able to say ’50-50,’ when in reality it is not. The Union told us that they had not yet ‘run the numbers.’ We did.”Further, Daly told ESPN.com that in the league’s view, none of the three offers from the NHLPA guarantee ever getting to a 50/50 split.Bettman said he was still hopeful the league can have a full season, but time is running out to make that happen.“I am concerned based on the proposal that was made today that things are not progressing,” he said. “To the contrary, I view the proposal made by the players’ association in many ways a step backward.”Bettman said Tuesday the sides would have to reach an agreement by Oct. 25 for a full season to be played. read more

Commentary Gus Johnsons departure leaves void in tournament coverage

The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament never will be the same. No, it’s not because Connecticut and Butler made James Naismith spin in his grave with an unprecedentedly awful championship game. Nor is it because of further expansion. After failing to agree on a new contract with CBS, Gus Johnson will no longer call tournament games for the network. So, for the foreseeable future, the tournament will lack the voice that captured the frenzied nature of each game. Imagine if Jim Nantz called Ron Lewis’ shot against Xavier in 2007. As we transitioned to commercial, we would’ve been hit with some unbearable pun, such as “a three for Ron and overtime for all — the Musketeers and Buckeyes after this.” Yes, we’ll still get our dose of Johnson during Big Ten play, as he still is expected to do basketball for Big Ten Network. No one can turn each play in an Iowa-Northwestern game exciting quite like he can. Big Ten fans won’t lack his pizzazz, but most of the nation will — on the big tournament stage. He called NCAA Tournament games for 16 years, but now his presence will be replaced by guys like Tim Brando, who unleashed this gem of a call after Butler’s Matt Howard beat Old Dominion with a buzzer-beating tip-in: “Butler … did it again!” Clearly, there are few who can capture the moment quite like Johnson can. Traditionalists might prefer an understated announcer, in the Pat Summerall mold. Yet, it’s hard to mimic his voice and simultaneously speak so eloquently with such few words. Summerall and Johnson are on opposite ends of the spectrum — really. Most announcers try to strike a balance between the two … unless you’re Joe Buck, who is in a class of his own. He always sounds like he just found out his dog died right before going on air. Johnson reactions are more genuine than most. Sports fans tend to get excited when they see a remarkable play in a tense moment, and Johnson’s announcing style mimics this. Take his call of OSU’s Matt Sylvester’s game-winner against an undefeated Illinois in 2005. After he hit the shot, Johnson screamed uncontrollably, much like Buckeye fans. This informal style apparently is appealing to the Internet savvy. In March, someone created an online soundboard for Johnson, capturing his best bytes, including “here comes the pain” or “he’s got getting-away-from-the-cops speed.” CNBC sports business reporter Darren Rovell conducted an informal poll on Twitter, which showed that two of every three people say Johnson gets them to watch a game they normally wouldn’t watch. Apparently Johnson’s stronghold in the social media realm is something that CBS, which caters to its viewers’ median age of 55, doesn’t understand. As the lead college football announcer for Fox, Johnson may be taking a step forward in his eyes. Still, the entertainment value of the NCAA Tournament takes a clear step backward with his absence. read more

School bans skirts to make uniform gender neutral for transgender students and

first_img“Pupils have been saying why do boys have to where ties and girls don’t, and girls have different uniform to boys,” he said. “So we decided to have the same uniform for everybody from Year 7.”Another issue was that we have a small but increasing number of transgender students and therefore having the same uniform is important for them.”There had also been complaints from the wider community about the length of school skirts, so this was another factor in the decision to ban them altogether. Some parents have however backed the headteacherCredit: Some parents have however backed the headteacher Priory School, Lewes Mr Smith said: “We know the current uniform is not necessarily worn as respectfully as it should be. “There were problems with decency and a number of issues raised by people in the community about how students were wearing uniform.” Priory School, LewesCredit: Brighton Argus/Solent News & Photo Agencycenter_img 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 new regime has divided opinion among parents and students, with some agreeing with it, while others have voiced their opposition. One mother said: “My daughter and her friends are appalled by this. The school is creating a hostile environment for girls.”Another parent added: “My daughter said she has got a gender and it’s female, so being gender neutral when she has got a gender is a big deal for her, as she proud to be a girl. I feel girls should be allowed to wear skirts if they want to.” The new uniform only applies for Year 7s but students in Year 8 to Year 11 are welcome to adopt the new uniform.Meanwhile other parents said they supported the move.  “I’m not in favour of uniform at all, but if you’re going to have a uniform I think it is great it’s gender neutral,” a mother said. It is not the first time that a school has introduced a “gender neutral” uniform.Earlier this year a Highgate School, a private school in north London, drew up plans to introduce gender-neutral uniforms in response to a growing number of pupils questioning their gender identity.And last year Brighton College, an independent boarding school, scrapped its uniform code in order to accommodate boys who identify as girls outside school and vice versa, breaking with hundreds of years of tradition. A secondary school has banned girls from wearing skirts to accommodate the growing number of transgender pupils, and to deal with complaints over the “decency” of short skirts.Priory School in Lewes, east Sussex has changed its uniform policy so that all new Year 7 students must wear trousers.Tony Smith, the school’s headmaster, said he bought in the change because pupils had been questioning why the uniform ascribed certain garments to boys and others to girls.last_img read more

Off beat: Mount St. Helen’s bleak landscape a fit for ‘The Road’

first_img‘The Road” to ruin went through Mount St. Helens.That was one legacy of the eruption that devastated areas around the volcano on May 18, 1980.Our story Thursday on the 37th anniversary of the blast focused on research taking place on the peak. Some scientists are investigating the geological processes; others are documenting how life returns to a sterile wasteland.But the last 37 years of Mount St. Helens history includes people who really had their hearts set on that sterile wasteland. They were filming “The Road.”It’s the saga of a man, played by Viggo Mortensen, and his son trekking through an America devastated by an unspecified apocalypse. Several scenes were shot in the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument on July 25, 26 and 27, 2008.When the film was released in 2009, The Columbian talked with Rod Ludvigsen, who was the volcanic monument’s special-use permit administrator before he retired.The filmmakers “liked the devastated area, with the standing dead trees and the trees blown down, and the limited vegetation,” Ludvigsen said.“That was the year we had half the road slumped away on the Windy Ridge highway, and there were several large fissures in the road at different locations, so we had that road closed to general-public vehicle traffic,” Ludvigsen said.last_img read more

Industrial warehouse planned for Fruit Valley

first_imgA developer has submitted plans for a 192,000-square-foot, light-industrial warehouse on a 10-acre site in the Fruit Valley area. The project, Portside Vancouver, would be a tilt-up concrete warehouse surrounded by a parking lot.The site sits on the north side of Lower River Road across from the administrative offices of the Port of Vancouver and is bordered by Northwest 32nd Avenue to the west. The site is undeveloped and does not currently have an address, although it is directly south of another similar warehouse off of Northwest 32nd Avenue that was built in the past few years.The proposed building would be a single-story warehouse, divided into approximately 95 percent warehouse space and 5 percent office space, although that ratio will depend on the tenant. A tenant has not been identified, according to the pre-application packet. The final height of the building will also depend on the needs of the tenant, but will be approximately 38 to 40 feet.The building would include 30 truck loading bays on the side facing 32nd Avenue, which would also serve as the primary access route.The pre-application packet was submitted by architecture firm Nelson Worldwide on behalf of site owner Peterson Machinery Company. A pre-application conference with the city of Vancouver is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. July 25.last_img read more

Homicides on the Rise District Struggles to Cope

first_imgHamzat Sani, Special to the AFROLate Tuesday Mayor Muriel Bowser gathered several of her agency heads to address a 50 percent increase in homicides since last year and spike in violence over the Memorial Day weekend, which claimed the lives of 4 district residents and saw another 10 wounded by gunfire. Bowser addressed a crowd of media and a few community members outside of the Department of For-Hire Vehicles on Shannon Place Southeast with a mural of the late Mayor Marion Barry serving as backdrop for what was at times a testy press conference.In a Monday press release Mayor Bowser said, “Over the weekend, we deployed additional police and non-law enforcement resources to communities in Wards 7 and 8 experiencing an increase in violence. While an enhanced police presence can help keep residents safe, we know that policing alone will not put a permanent stop to the violence in our communities. We ask residents to partner with us by reporting any criminal activity and send a clear message: violence will not be tolerated.”Concerned residents gathered on Memorial Day to discuss the alarming uptick in violence.The release noted that the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) increased staffing levels to nearly 25 percent in the Sixth and Seventh Districts in addition to partnering with the Narcotics and Special Investigation Division, the Special Operations Division, and the Homeland Security Bureau to add additional personnel over the weekend.On the non-law enforcement side the administration activated the Safer Stronger Office of Neighborhood Safety and Engagement, the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services’ Credible Messengers, and the Department of Parks and Recreation’s Roving Leaders in Wards 5, 7 and 8.   The Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency, tasked with monitoring all adults on supervised release, will conduct check-ins throughout the week with individuals on probation and parole in the District.Bowser acknowledged the frustration of community members subject to continued violence noting a gathering of about 200 residents at a Community Planning Meeting held at the Check It Enterprises Event Space on MLK Jr. Ave in Anacostia.  The meeting held on May 28 to address the Ward 8 violence crisis included remarks from Councilmembers Trayon White and Kenyon McDuffie focused on community oriented approaches to curbing the spike in violence.At Large Council candidate Marcus Goodwin who was present at the gathering said, “People are frustrated with the lack of community and parental engagement to stop systemic violence; as well as the public safety climate that our law enforcement officials and elected leaders have allowed to persist for generations.Both Bowser and MPD Chief Peter Newsham called for continued community involvement in taking illegal guns off the street and bringing crime suspects to justice.Newsham went on to provide details on 3 homicide suspects: 17 year old Kaevon Sutton, 16 year old Daquan Gray; and Alonzo Lewis. The 33 year old Lewis is wanted in connection with the double homicide, this past Saturday, of  40-year old Jaquon Helm of Southwest, D.C. and 35-year old Venius Badgett of Southwest, D.C. MPD offers a reward of up to $25,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for any homicide committed in the District of Columbia.One of the victims of this weekend’s rash of violence was the owner of District Culture in Anacostia. Alexander Mosby was a husband, father and respected member of the community he loved, grew upon and sought to serve.“Many of the homicides that we are seeing in the city are these minor disputes that evolve into shootings and homicides because of the introduction of an illegal firearm into the incident,” Newsham said.The Tuesday press conference marks the first time back at the podium since she was granted adoptive custody of a little girl. The Mayor ended the press conference noting that while a little tired she felt lucky to have her little girl.“The thing that I enjoy the most is looking down at those little eyes looking back at me.”last_img read more

James Cordens Late Late Show Lands in China

first_img“The Late, Late Show With James Corden” is set to air in China. CBS Studios International has struck a deal with Chinese streaming giant iQIYI that covers current shows and makes past episodes available on demand.Chinese regulators’ attitude towards foreign content has ebbed and flowed, though growing political control of the media appears to be the current direction. Another U.S. comedy show, “Saturday Night Live,” began airing on streaming platform Sohu.com in 2014. But this year the Chinese-made version of “SNL” was removed from the Alibaba-owned streaming platform Youku after just a few weeks of broadcast.Politics and sex are typically no-go areas for Chinese shows, and satire of Chinese politicians is not allowed. Corden’s focus on foreign celebrities may have helped the show win censorship approval. Celebrity guests who have appeared on the show include Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, Arnold Schwarzenegger, David Beckham, Julia Roberts, George Clooney and Will Ferrell. “Mobile viewing dominates iQIYI’s subscriber base, making it the perfect platform for ‘The Late, Late Show’s’ inventive content and viral moments,” said Armando Nunez, president and CEO of CBS Global Distribution.“The one and only James Corden will also be well-recognized by millions of Chinese audiences,” an unnamed iQIYI spokesman said.“The Late, Late Show” is produced by CBS Television Studios, with Corden’s banner Fulwell 73.
