First Nations LNG Alliance CEO shares hopes for sustainable development with Coalition

first_img“I cannot emphasizes enough how critical it is for everyone involved to feel like they’re winning. Coming from a social work perspective, seeing the high rates of our people incarcerated, the social issues, the poverty. At some point you get tired of doing that job. It’s like you’re in a spinning wheel and you’re going nowhere because these social issues are continuous.”Ogan-Toews told the crowd that an important question that all parties to resource development need to ask is how things can be done differently than in the past. She explained that having previously led her community meant she needed to make difficult decisions that she felt were correct, despite opposition.“The are a lot of naysayers, there is a lot of opposition. You’re not going to make everybody happy. In my role with the First Nations LNG Alliance, that’s part of what I’m trying to do: to do the right thing for our people. If we can get those economic wheels turning for our communities and bring in revenue, that will help address some of the social issues that we deal with on a daily basis. We want to be able to increase the quality of life for our people. When you look at the rest of Canada and you look at First Nations, our quality of life is less than the average Canadian citizen’s. We want to be able to level the playing fields. We want to see more of our people in post-secondary, being teachers, nurses, doctors.” FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — It was a packed house at the Pomeroy Hotel for the Northeast B.C. Resource Municipalities Coalition symposium on LNG development last Wednesday.The symposium featured discussions to gather information and feedback from residents in the Northeast after the provincial government announced that it wants to create a new Energy Roadmap for the province. After a presentation on how Northeast B.C. can contribute to the new Energy Roadmap, a panel discussion that included Fort St. John Mayor Lori Ackerman lead the conversation on ways that Northeast B.C. can help better educate B.C. residents about the provincial energy sector.The forum featured two keynote speakers: BC LNG Alliance President and CEO David Keane, as well as First Nations LNG Alliance CEO Karen Ogen-Toews. Ogen-Toews, who formerly served as chief of the Wet’suwet”n First Nation, gave a presentation on ways that Canadians can better develop the country’s natural resources, while also fostering better relations with First Nations. Ogen-Toews explained that her background as a social worker has given her a unique perspective on ways that resource development can benefit peoples of all backgrounds that are involved.last_img read more

Ohio State defense puts on solid springgame showing

OSU junior safety Malik Hooker (24) carries the ball after an interception during the buckeye spring game on April 16 at Ohio Stadium. The grey team beat scarlet 28-17. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorOn a sunny Saturday afternoon in Columbus, Ohio State’s three quarterbacks combined to go just 31-of-56, including four interceptions.On a normal day, it would be fair to see that as a negative for the team. But fortunately for OSU coach Urban Meyer, the defense that was stifling his quarterbacks happened to also be his own.While the final score of OSU’s annual intrasquad spring game is largely irrelevant, there are still various measures of value that the coaches and players take away from the scrimmage.A lot of those gains came from the defense of both the Scarlet and Gray teams. And since that side of the ball lost eight starters from last year’s Fiesta-Bowl-winning team, Meyer and his staff have to be pleased. “I will probably watch the film and get sick to my stomach, but, no, what I saw today was the future is bright at Ohio State,” Meyer said. Defensive lineWith Scarlet starting quarterback J.T. Barrett wearing a black no-contact jersey, the Gray defensive line was reverting to its elementary school recess days, playing two-hand touch. Still, it was an impressive performance, as the defense picked up five sacks.Redshirt freshman defensive tackle Davon Hamilton had three sacks, while fellow redshirt freshman defensive tackle Dre’Mont Jones added another. The fifth did not come from a lineman, but from sophomore cornerback Denzel Ward.Not to be outdone, the Scarlet team picked up four sacks of its own, led by two from redshirt freshman defensive tackle Jashon Cornell. Redshirt sophomore defensive tackle Dylan Thompson tacked on another, while the fourth was credited to the team.“I liked our defensive line,” Meyer said. “(Redshirt sophomore) Mike Hill, Dre’Mont Jones were all over the field today. Jashon Cornell played well.”On a throwing-heavy day, the line also did its part preventing big gains on the ground. Combined, the sides rushed for 129 yards.“I think they’re talented, very eager, we have an excellent D-line coach, and the good thing, they’re allowed to spend time with our players now in the summer,” Meyer said.A highlight in the game came from Scarlet linebacker Jerome Baker, who made an acrobatic, one-handed interception. But despite the gravity-defying athleticism, the sophomore was quick to give the credit to the line in front of him.“Our D-line did their job, and I came up with the pick,” he said.Linebackers Sixty-six percent of the Buckeyes’ starting linebackers from a season ago have bid farewell to the program, opening gaping holes on the depth chart for young players to fill. It just so happened that one of those players looking to fill that spot, Baker, made one of the game’s most electrifying plays, as far as spring games go. Baker’s one-handed snag might have caught OSU fans unfamiliar with the Cleveland native off-guard, but it didn’t shock some of his teammates. “I wasn’t too surprised,” said junior Dante Booker, a fellow linebacker. “I’ve seen him do it before in practice. He’s just an athlete.”Redshirt junior linebacker Chris Worley is another player who will see his workload increase drastically this fall. The 6-foot-2 Worley nearly started two seasons ago, but Meyer opted to start then-redshirt freshman Darron Lee. The rest, of course, is history. Yet Worley was quiet on Saturday, tallying just one tackle. Booker, on the other hand, had an impressive day. He was active throughout the scrimmage, registering seven tackles, four of which were solo. Right now, the linebackers on the roster have the necessary tools, but they’re inexperienced. Barring injury, McMillan will be a mainstay. Other than that, there are players that need to prove themselves. “We’ve got a lot of young guys in the mix,” Booker said. “We have them in the rotation so I feel like they got experience playing in the stadium. We’ll continue working in the summer.” SecondaryBesides the aforementioned Baker interception, the defenses combined to come up with three more: two by redshirt sophomore safety Malik Hooker and another by redshirt sophomore cornerback Marshon Lattimore.With OSU’s two starters at cornerback from last season away from the field on Saturday — redshirt junior Gareon Conley is recovering from an injury and Eli Apple entered the NFL draft — Lattimore said he saw the scrimmage as a chance for the young corners to make a name for themselves.“We’re replacing some pretty good players,” Lattimore said. “But we still can play. We still can be right there with them, I feel like. But we still have a long way to go, you know, they had experience. But I feel like we’re just as good as players they were.” In addition to his two interceptions, Hooker led all players with 10 tackles. With over 100,000 fans in attendance, a national spring game record, Lattimore said coming up big in a game like that means a lot regardless of if the stats are soon washed from the record books.“It’s great, no matter if it’s practice,” he said. “You’ve got to go at it the same way, whether it’s practice or a game. It’s just exciting to have teammates go crazy when you make a play. I love that.” The completion of the spring game also marks the end of spring practice. With a summer of work ahead of them, the Buckeyes are excited about the progress they have made with their lineup of 16 new starters, but they acknowledged that a lot of work still has to be done.“We’re young. We’ve just constantly got to get better. Every position has to get better,” Baker said. “We’re young, inexperienced, but we’re very talented.”The regular season for OSU is set to begin on Sept. 3 with a matchup against Bowling Green at Ohio Stadium. read more

Mens Hockey No 6 Ohio State faces rival No 11 Michigan with

Junior forward Mason Jobst (26) becomes a wedge between Michigan’s Quinn Hughes (43) and Dexter Dancs (90) Jan. 26, 2018 at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, OH. Credit: Ethan Clewell | For The LanternThe No. 6 Ohio State men’s hockey will battle arch-rival No. 11 Michigan for the fifth time this season when it meets the Wolverines in the semifinals of the Big Ten tournament at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Nationwide Arena.The Buckeyes swept the regular-season series against the Wolverines for the first time since the 1985-86 season. But senior forward Matthew Weis doesn’t see the sweep mattering now with one game separating the teams from the conference final.“Zero. It doesn’t mean anything,” he said. “We got one more game left, it’s do or die. So, I think that’s all our focus is on.”After getting past Michigan State in the quarterfinals, the Buckeyes will go from playing in a three-game series to single-elimination games, which means teams can’t afford a slip-up in focus. Ohio State head coach Steve Rohlik does not foresee that being a problem.“It’s Michigan, that’s really all you got to say,” Rohlik said. “We were fortunate enough to get some bounces and win a few games this year against them. They are playing as well as anybody in the country right now.”The Wolverines are one of the hottest teams in the country, winning seven straight games and taking care of Wisconsin in a quarterfinal series sweep in Ann Arbor, Michigan.Powering Michigan’s recent success are senior forward Tony Calderone and junior forward Cooper Marody. Calderone leads the conference with 23 goals and Marody tops the Big Ten with 32 assists.“Obviously, you look at their top line, Cooper Marody and Tony Calderone. They do a bunch of their scoring,” Weis said. “So, I think, obviously, just be aware when they are out on the ice, but, like I said before, they’re a great team.”A good aspect for any championship-caliber team chasing a title is its depth, and the Buckeyes have six players with double-digit goals. Their top scorers junior forward Mason Jobst (19 goals), sophomore forward Tanner Laczynski (15 goals) and Weis (11 goals) have been difference makers in recent weeks.Even when those players have faltered in scoring, others have picked up the slack with senior forward Christian Lampasso (10 goals) and junior forwards Dakota Joshua (13 goals) and Freddy Gerard (11 goals) giving the team balance.“When those guys are going, we are as confident as any group. When they’re not going we are still pretty confident,” junior defenseman Sasha Larocque said. “We got good depth and we know that, having those guys as hot as they are right now, is huge for us.”This weekend will have a different feel to it than last week because the Buckeyes aren’t playing in the cozy confines of the Schottenstein Center. Instead, they will take on the Wolverines at Nationwide Arena, the home of the NHL’s Columbus Blue Jackets.“You know it’s an NHL rink and I think, for all us, our goal is to finally hopefully get there,” Weis said. “I mean, it’s pretty cool to play there, but at the end of the day, you just got to look at it as just another game. We got to do our thing to get the ‘W.’”The puck will drop at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and the winner will take on the victor of the other semifinal game between Notre Dame and Penn State. read more

Drivers in Anchorage Alaska can pay for a parking ticket in school

first_imgEnlarge Image mcdomx/Getty Images Drivers in Anchorage, Alaska can now pay for a parking ticket in pens and pencils, in an effort to help underprivileged kids get enough school supplies, the Anchorage Daily News reports.Specifically, drivers with a ticket that’s under 30 days old can pay their $20 fine by submitting 200 No. 2 pencils or 100 black or blue pens during the next two weeks. Now, before all you Alaskan parking scofflaws start twirling your mustaches and looking at buying pencils by the crate, EasyPark — the company that handles parking enforcement for Anchorage — will only let you pay for one ticket this way.(As a resident of Los Angeles, I want to take a second and imagine living in a place where parking tickets only cost $20. If parking enforcement attempted to offer this kind of alternate payment idea here, the city would likely drown in a sea of Bics and Ticonderogas, but I digress.)”Providing assistance by accepting school supply items for parking citations is a positive start in supporting our local students for a successful school year,” said Demetric Tuggle, parking director for EasyPark, in a statement.If you live in Anchorage and want to pay a ticket off with writing implements, you can go to the EasyPark office at 440 B St. between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays from Friday through Aug. 9.We checked, and no, Ms. Tuggle is not actually a character from a Thomas Pynchon novel, she’s just a lady trying to help the kids in Anchorage, and we support that. If you don’t have a ticket, but you want to donate school supplies anyway, you can contact Helping Us Give School Supplies (Hugss) here.

Nobody wants monarchy in Bangladesh says Kamal

first_imgJatiya Oikya Front leader Kamal Hossain speaking at a programme organised by Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD-Rob) at Jatiya Press Club on Friday. Photo: Prothom AloStating that the government is in trouble, Jatiya Oikya Front convener Kamal Hossain on Friday warned that it will not be able to run the country for long with ‘falsehood’, reports UNB.”This government is in trouble as it’s running the country staying in power without (proper) election. It’s now making various promises which are very difficult to fulfill,” Kamal said while speaking at a discussion arranged by Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD-Rob) marking the historic first flag hoisting day. “What happened on the night of 29 December? Was it a free, fair and neutral election? What was it actually? I would like to say it’s difficult to run a country of 160 million people based on falsehood and wrong information. It can’t be done, ” said the noted lawyer.Kamal, also the president of Gono Forum, said there is no disagreement among the people over some basic issues and they all believe that they are the owners of the country.”Nobody wants a monarchy here and nobody wants to see any king or queen here. Bengalee is such a nation which will never accept any king or queen in the country.”He said people now feel some sort of helplessness as the government is not showing respect for them as the owners of the country.”But no one should feel helpless when there are 17 crore people who can play the role of owners of the country. Those who think they have become the country’s owners dividing people they are making a mistake.”The Oikya Front chief said the country’s people ousted the autocratic rulers, including HM Ershad, through their united efforts in the past. “We’ll also get united now and bring the country under our occupation through a democratic and constitutional process.”Mentioning that the country was liberated based on unity of people; he said people’s ownership of the country will also be restored now based on unison among them.Speaking at the programme, JSD president Abdur Rob recalled the memory of hoisting the country’s flag for the first time on 2 March, 1971.Describing the current government as autocratic one, he said it will not leave power easily unless people come up with a united and strong resistance against it.Nagorik Oikya convener Mahmudur Rahman Manna said Awami League has snatched people’s voting rights on 29 December by using the state machinery.”The Awami League which liberated the country under the leadership of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujiubur Rahman doesn’t exist in the country.

first_imgBy KANTELE FRANKO, Associated PressCOLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Witnesses say that the White police officer who killed a Black 13-year-old used a racial slur after firing and that a toy gun the eighth-grader had wasn’t visible when the confrontation occurred, according to a federal civil rights lawsuit filed Friday on the second anniversary of the shooting.The lawsuit filed by Tyre King’s grandmother challenges the police account, characterizing his death as the result of excessive force, racial discrimination and an alleged failure by the police department to properly investigate and discipline officers for racially motivated or unconstitutional behavior.In this Sept. 24, 2016 file photo, a funeral service card bearing the likeness of Tyre King is carried by a mourner in Columbus, Ohio. (AP Photo/John Minchillo, File)Officer Bryan Mason, Police Chief Kim Jacobs and the city are named as defendants in the lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages.By “tacitly authorizing” their behavior, “the policymakers and those responsible for hiring, training and supervision of police officers within the City of Columbus acted negligently, recklessly, intentionally, willfully, wantonly, knowingly and with deliberate indifference to the serious safety needs of the citizens of Columbus, including Tyre King,” the lawsuit said.A Columbus police spokeswoman said it would be improper to comment on the litigation. The head of the local police union didn’t immediately respond to a message seeking comment, but the group previously said Mason acted according to policy.Police have said Tyre was in a group of young men who robbed a man of $10 at gunpoint, and Mason was responding.Mason previously told investigators that Tyre tried to pull what appeared to be a real firearm from his waistband and said he fired at the teen when he saw a laser sight on the weapon and feared being shot. It turned out to be a BB gun that police later determined was inoperable.Mason also said the teen didn’t comply with the officer’s commands to “get down.”A grand jury voted not to indict the officer in the shooting, which prompted protests in Columbus and became part of national discussion about police killings of Black males.Mason had been involved in three previous shootings and had been cleared of wrongdoing in each case, including another fatality.Records show Tyre was shot three times, including in the head and torso. An attorney for his family has argued the results indicate he was running away and wasn’t a threat when he was shot. A forensic pathologist who examined his body for his family reached the same conclusion.Mason has said that Tyre spun to his right after the first shot.___Find  Franko on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/kantele10 .last_img read more
