Aecon sale to face federal reviews encountered by Potash Corp Norsat and

By on October 17, 2019

first_imgTORONTO – Aecon Group Inc.’s proposed $1.5 billion acquisition by a Chinese state-owned company hit a snag Monday when the federal government announced it is stepping up its national security review of the proposed takeover of Canadian construction company Aecon Group Inc. by a Chinese state-owned business.Toronto-based Aecon said the minister responsible for economic development informed the company that cabinet has ordered a further investigation of the deal under the Investment Canada Act, that will take more time.Such reviews target investments made by foreign companies trying to acquire control of Canadian businesses and allow the federal government to stop takeovers it deems to be “injurious to national security.”Since the measures first came into effect, they’ve only quashed a handful of deals.Here’s how a few takeover attempts fared when faced with government scrutiny:APPROVED: NorsatLast June, China’s Hytera Communications got approval to purchase Vancouver-based Norsat International Inc., which developed a satellite system for the Canadian Coast Guard and counts the Taiwanese Army, the U.S. Department of Defense, Fox News and Boeing as clients.The deal underwent a preliminary security screening, but then the federal government decided to waive a further review and approve the deal.In the wake of the deal, a U.S. congressional commission pushed for the Pentagon to puts its relationship with Norsat under review, saying Canada’s approval of the deal “raises significant national-security concerns for the United States as the company is a supplier to our military.”APPROVED: O-Net Communications, which is partially owned by the Chinese government, purchased Montreal-based ITF Technologies in 2015 and quickly landed approval from then-prime minister Stephen Harper’s government.Harper’s cabinet flip-flopped after a national security review warned the deal would speed up China’s ability to domestically produce military laser technology meeting Western standards, Globe and Mail sources alleged.In 2017, Justin Trudeau’s government scrapped the decision and called for a new review, which allowed O-Net to keep ITF.REJECTED: Beida Jade BirdIn 2014, Chinese company Beida Jade Bird wanted to open a 130,000-square-foot alarm manufacturing plant in Saint-Bruno, Que. and hire dozens of employees by the end of 2015. La Presse reported the plans went awry when the federal government forced Beida Jade Bird to undergo a national security review.Unnamed sources that spoke to LaPresse said the $30-million location was rejected because of its close proximity to the Canadian Space Agency’s headquarters.REJECTED: Manitoba Telecom Services’ AllstreamA sale of the Manitoba Telecom Services’ business unit Allstream to Egyptian investment group Accelero Capital Holdings was blocked in October 2013 over “unspecified national security concerns.”The deal was valued at $520 million, but when it was unexpectedly spiked, MTS Allstream braced itself for the failed transaction’s expenses and restructuring costs to trigger a $35-million loss.The government’s move to block Accelero had many worried because it came just as BlackBerry was putting itself up for sale and as Tony Clement, the then-treasury board president and former minister of industry, reasserted that the country would be stringently reviewing any foreign investment from a national security perspective.ENDED: Wind MobileAmsterdam-based telecommunications company VimpelCom stepped way from its June 2013 bid to acquire Globalive Wireless Management Corp. and its subsidiary, Wind Mobile, just as the deal was awaiting approval from federal regulators.Some suggested VimpelCom’s withdrawal was because approval was taking too long to secure, but the company said only that “it continues to be interested in consolidating its interest in Wind Mobile Canada and in working with the government of Canada to achieve this goal.”REJECTED:Potash Corp.Mining giant BHP Billiton walked away from a $40-billion takeover bid it had made for Potash Corporation in November 2010, after the federal government ruled that it would not offer net benefits to Canada.Industry Minister Tony Clement initially declared the government would stop the deal, but gave BHP Billiton an extra 30 days to alter its deal before he made a “final decision.”The proposed deal had been mired in criticism from Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall, who had pushed for the federal government to “stand up for Canada and Canada’s national strategic investments” by denying the bid, which the province complained would wreak havoc on its economy because of potash’s prominent role in Saskatchewan’s food production.REJECTED: MacDonald Dettwiler and Associated Ltd.’s space divisionIn April 2008, the federal government stopped a $1.3-billion deal that would have seen Vancouver-based MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates’ space division, which refurbished the Canadarm, find a new home at the U.S.-based Alliant Techsystems Inc.Industry minister Jim Prentice said the sale was blocked because “we don’t see net benefits to Canada in this transaction.”It was reportedly the first deal stopped by Industry Canada since its act came into effect in 1985.Before Prentice announced the ruling, Canadian Space Agency head and former astronaut Marc Garneau argued it would result in taxpayer-funded technology being sold off and would hamper the future of Canada’s satellite-building capabilities because MDA had exclusive global rights to images taken from the RADARSAT-2 satellite.After the sale was blocked, the federal government amended the Investment Canada Act national security test and warned that fewer foreign investments in the country would meet its requirements.Since then, MDA has transformed into a U.S. company and is listed on the New York Stock Exchange with a new name, Maxar Technologies.last_img read more

Oilsands crude headed for price shock in 2020 due to new fuel

By on October 7, 2019

CALGARY — Canada’s oilsands industry, hard hit by a price storm this year, could be sailing straight into a pricing typhoon stirred up by new fuel standards for the international shipping industry.The tighter pollution rules by the International Maritime Organization, dubbed IMO 2020, are set to take effect Jan. 1, 2020, resulting in the sulphur content limit of “bunker” fuel on ships dropping from 3.5 per cent to just 0.5 per cent.The switch is expected to wallop prices for heavy oil containing high levels of sulphur — exactly the kind of the raw bitumen that makes up about half of Canada’s 4.4 million barrels per day of crude oil production.“It’s bad news for any producers of heavy, sour crude oil,” said Martin Tallett, president of Massachusetts-based oil market research firm EnSys Energy.“The shock is going to go through the system and affect all products, all regions.”Canada’s energy industry faced a widening spread between Canadian heavy crude prices compared with New York-traded West Texas Intermediate earlier this year that many observers blamed on a shortage of capacity on export pipelines out of Canada.The coming marine shipping rules could double or even triple the discount on Canadian heavy, pushing it potentially much wider than the US$30 a barrel discount producers encountered earlier this year, Tallett said.The resulting decline in demand for bitumen compared with lighter crudes could result in higher discount prices that last until 2022, according to a report from RBC Dominion Securities researchers.The looming deadline is a concern at Calgary-based Cenovus Energy Inc., where about 360,000 barrels per day or 91 per cent of its overall production is bitumen, produced from its steam-driven oilsands wells in northern Alberta.The IMO 2020 rules, along with uncertainty about when pipeline bottlenecks will be cleared, and limits on the company’s ability to process its oil at the U.S. refineries it co-owns, are issues to consider before any moves are made to expand production, said downstream senior vice-president Keith Chiasson.“We are obviously watching that space,” he said on a recent conference call, adding, “Do we want to bring new production growth into that market if we start seeing (new pipelines) deferred and delayed as well as the IMO impact coming?”The US$30 discount paid for bitumen-blend Western Canadian Select versus WTI in the first quarter, up from its typical discount in the mid-teens, prompted Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. to rein in bitumen production and led Husky Energy Inc. to buy more oil from others because it was cheaper than producing its own.Uncertainty continues to plague proposed new export pipelines including TransCanada’s Keystone XL project, the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline (despite it being sold to the federal government) and Enbridge’s Line 3 pipeline replacement as environmental opposition to the projects remains high.Environmental concerns have also prompted action in the marine shipping industry, which is considered a highly energy efficient way to move goods over long distances but still harmful due to emissions.Most bunker fuel burned on ships is derived from the “residue” that remains after all of the more valuable light fuels such as gasoline and diesel have been removed from crude oil in a refinery.Following combustion in the engine, the sulphur in the fuel becomes sulphur oxide, a pollutant that causes respiratory symptoms and lung disease as well as acid rain, which can harm crops, forests and aquatic species, and contributes to the acidification of the oceans.The IMO first began restricting emissions in 2005 and its limits on sulphur in bunker fuel have been progressively tightened. Four “emission control areas” in Europe and North America already have a 0.1 per cent limit.Bunker fuel prices are expected to rise as the IMO 2020 standards lead to expensive upgrades at refineries around the world — by up to US$60 billion per year if there’s full compliance with the new rules, consultancy Wood Mackenzie said in an April study.It estimates demand for bunker fuels will total about 5.3 million barrels per day in 2020, far exceeding the anticipated world supply of about 1.2 million bpd of ultra-low sulphur fuels from refineries.That means ships will have to either switch to alternative fuels, which could include marine gas oil, liquefied natural gas or biofuels, or install scrubbers to remove sulphur from exhaust gas.Tallett said not all oilsands output will suffer because of IMO 2020 — synthetic crude produced from upgraders at oilsands mining operations is considered a light oil and, as such, would still attract prices similar to WTI.Suncor CEO Steve Williams said in a conference call last month that he thinks the company will come out ahead.“We think net-net we will actually gain by the IMO 2020 and that’s to do with the diesel yields off of our average barrel across the company and the fact that we think demand and prices will be relatively strong,” he said.“So, overall, the impact for Suncor is a positive one.”Suncor produced 425,000 bpd of upgraded crude oil in the first quarter, representing about 77 per cent of its overall oilsands production. It also owns refineries that can buy and process its raw bitumen for further price protection.While most observers agree that IMO 2020 negatively affects the price outlook for Canadian bitumen producers, there are differences in opinion about how much.Researchers at Calgary-based GMP FirstEnergy Capital say the impact will be reduced by factors including new pipeline startups, increased U.S. demand for Canadian bitumen to replace declining imports of sour heavy oil from Mexico and Venezuela, and an erosion in the value of the Canadian dollar, which will improve the return for Canadian oil sold in American currency.“For now, we are treating it as a small negative for prices leading into 2020.” read more

Judge rejects plea to set aside order to preserve luxury assets in

By on

A B.C. Supreme Court judge has rejected an application to set aside an order to freeze assets in a civil forfeiture suit that alleges the defendants perpetrated a $30-million cryptocurrency fraud.In a suit filed this spring in B.C. Supreme Court, the B.C. Civil Forfeiture Office launched an action to seize a luxury Coal Harbour townhouse, two Range Rover SUVs and funds in Bank of Montreal accounts as proceeds of crime.Named in the suit were Lisa Angela Cheng and Kevin Patrick Hobbs — who headed up a pair of tech firms — who are accused of fraud, tax evasion and money laundering.The pair sought to set aside the interim preservation order, which prevents assets from being sold or taking on more debt, arguing it had been improperly granted ex parte — that is, without their lawyer being present in court. They also sought to have the Range Rovers returned pending the outcome of a trial.Cheng and Hobbs also argued that the B.C. Civil Forfeiture Office did not have all of the facts right, including that a criminal conviction for marijuana possession for Hobbs, referred to in an affidavit, had been overturned.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.B.C. Supreme Court Judge Elliot M. Myers, however, dismissed the pair’s application, noting that unless it is clearly not in the interests of justice, the court must grant an interim preservation order.While Cheng and Hobbs argued the civil forfeiture office’s evidence is “entirely speculative,” Myers said the office had made out a serious case to be tried for fraud and that the assets sought to be preserved are the proceeds of that alleged crime.“Looking at the matter overall, I do not think the defendants have demonstrated that the seizure is clearly not within the interests of justice,” Myers wrote in the decision.Both Cheng and Hobbs have denied perpetrating the alleged $30-million fraud involving an initial coin offering and maintain that they run a legitimate business.According to the B.C. Civil Forfeiture Office’s allegations, the couple ran Vanbex Group Inc. and Etherparty SmartContracts Inc., which launched a cryptocurrency coin called a FUEL token for which they raised money from investors by “deceit, falsehood or fraudulent means.”An RCMP investigation determined they raised more than $30 million “by falsely representing corporate investment opportunities … knowing they did not intend to use the invested funds to develop products they were marketing but rather with intention to misappropriate the corporately invested funds raised for their own personal benefit,” the claim’s statement says.In their response, Cheng and Hobbs say Vanbex did not solicit funds from investors for the development or distribution of the FUEL token and did not claim the value of the tokens would increase.The terms, conditions and risks of buying the tokens were laid out in documents prepared by counsel, says the response.The civil suit alleges that the couple attempted to liquidate their assets when they became aware of the RCMP investigation, a point the pair also denies.According to the court filing: “The criminal investigation is ongoing and currently no charges have been laid against either of the defendants.”A criminal conviction is not necessary to launch civil forfeiture suits, which have a lower threshold for convictions than criminal cases: a balance of probabilities rather than beyond a reasonable doubt.The three-bedroom townhouse in Coal Harbour was bought in late 2017 by Hobbs and Cheng and was recently listed for sale at $7.88 million. The Range Rovers, owned by Hobbs, sell for as much as $90,000.ghoekstra@postmedia.comtwitter.com/gordon_hoekstraCLICK HERE to report a typo. Is there more to this story?

Opinion Cincinnati Bengals meltdown shows character ultimately trumps talent

By on September 28, 2019

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback AJ McCarron (5) passes against the San Francisco 49ers in the second quarter at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, on Dec. 20. Credit: Courtesy of TNSWith a little under two minutes to play in the fourth quarter, leading the Pittsburgh Steelers 16-15, it seemed that after so long, the Cincinnati Bengals were finally going to end their playoff winless streak that dates back to January 1991. Putting the length of that abysmal streak into greater perspective, in 1991 the price of gas was $1.14 a gallon, the president was George H.W. Bush, and “Home Alone” was No. 1 at the box office. Nonetheless, in embarrassing fashion, the Bengals’ streak was further extended yet another year. The deflating loss left Cincinnati’s fans with an all-too-familiar feeling, as they watched their team go out like the hapless “Bungals” rather than the proud Bengals who looked destined for a deep playoff run during much of the season.There was no love lost between the two teams Saturday night as the fierce rivalry rose to new, unprecedented heights. Dominating defenses, devastating hits, near-brawls and a combined 18 penalty flags were thrown, many of which were personal fouls. Although it was an ugly contest on both sides, it is the Bengals that will be remembered for choking away a sure-victory in such historically disgraceful fashion.After a rough-and-tumble first three quarters, with Cincinnati down 15-0 heading into the final period, quarterback A.J. McCarron quickly began an orange-and-black charge that had Paul Brown Stadium, widely known as “The Jungle,” in a frenzy. McCarron and Co. soon took back the lead when the second-year signal caller tossed a 25-yard touchdown pass to wideout A.J. Green late in the game. The comeback seemed all but complete when linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who injured Steelers starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger earlier in the night on a sack, intercepted backup Landry Jones deep in Pittsburgh territory. Just as the Bengals looked to have finally broken the sixth-longest postseason drought in NFL history, the meltdown ensued.Almost as quickly as Cincinnati had the ball, it gave it right back to its hated rivals when running back Jeremy Hill was stripped on the opening play of the drive by former Ohio State standout Ryan Shazier. The Steelers indeed recovered the fumble when a first down would have effectively ended the game. Despite being carted off the field and taken to the locker room earlier, Roethlisberger came back out for a final chance at victory and led the Pittsburgh offense from its own 9-yard line to just past midfield. It would need to go further, but it didn’t have to do it on its own. The Bengals did it for them.Roethlisberger overthrew receiver Antonio Brown over the middle on the very next play, where Brown’s head would violently meet Burfict’s shoulder, concussing the Steelers’ star wideout. A 15-yard penalty was handed out, with a possible suspension now pending. The hit was as dirty as any, something that has become Burfict’s calling card. He argued the call for some minutes after and, like all game long, couldn’t keep his emotions together, especially when it mattered most. Neither could cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones, who received a personal foul after getting into it with Pittsburgh assistant coach Joey Porter. Thirty penalty yards later, kicker Chris Boswell drilled a 35-yard field goal to give Pittsburgh an improbable wild-card round victory.It was an embarrassing display of sportsmanship — or lack thereof. It was, in fact, disgusting, mainly on the Bengals’ part. All game long, coach Marvin Lewis, now the owner of a winless 0-7 record in the playoffs, failed to keep his players in check, specifically Burfict, who played on the edge most of the night. The lack of emotional restraint and composure boiled over to the point of implosion, costing Cincinnati a spot in the divisional round of the playoffs. Fans in “The Jungle” were almost as disgraceful, as they were seen pelting the turf, as well as Roethlisberger during his cart ride to the locker room, with plastic bottles and other debris.When it comes down to it, sure, Burfict racked up six tackles, a clutch sack of Roethlisberger and had what should have been a game-ending interception. Even Jones had a 24-yard punt return to set the Bengals offense up with good field position in the closing stages. And yet, Saturday night’s meltdown in Cincinnati proved that the content of your character always overcomes talent, something that might end up costing Lewis his job as coach of the Bengals. read more

VIDEO Ronda Rousey wins historic womens UFC debut

By on September 22, 2019

first_imgRousey was awarded the equivalent of the bantamweight belt she won in the now-defunct Strikeforce before her first UFC fight, but quickly showed she deserved it.“I was actually less nervous walking out than I was for some of my earlier fights,” Rousey said. “I felt like the UFC champion, and I know how hard I am working. This was a wild ride, and I can’t wait to get back in the octagon.” Faber (28-6) got his career back on track with an impressive victory over Menjivar (25-11). With his home-state crowd behind him, Faber took early control on the ground and then finished Menjivar by clinging to his back and wrapping both legs around his standing opponent, forcing Menjivar to tap out while on his feet with 26 seconds left in the opening round.“Ivan is a very crafty veteran,” Faber said. “I just attacked the neck. He let me hold on too long, and that was that.”Although Faber has a huge fan following for his years of success in other promotions, he was just 2-2 since moving to the UFC two years ago, dropping narrow decisions to bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz and Renan Barao.Robbie Lawler stopped Josh Koscheck with 1:03 left in the first round with a series of strikes, earning the knockout of the night award in his first UFC fight since October 2004. Court McGee also beat Josh Neer by unanimous decision in his welterweight debut. Rousey and Carmouche didn’t disappoint in their pressure-packed debuts. Although Rousey was heavily favored, Carmouche (7-3) actually had Rousey in trouble early, nearly landing a rear naked choke while clinging to Rousey’s back in the opening two minutes.Rousey, who had never been seriously threatened in any previous bout, barely escaped the chokehold by getting her chin and mouth underneath Carmouche’s arm. Rousey gradually imposed her will on the former Marine after that, rolling her across the canvas and finally getting side control on Carmouche before patiently separating her arms to land an armbar.“That was the most vulnerable a position I’ve been in so far in my career,” Rousey said. “That was pretty tight, that neck crank, and I was very happy to get out of it. She had the choke across my mouth and … her forearm was pushing against my teeth. That can’t have been any more fun for her than it was for me. Crazy sport we’re in, huh?” Two judges favored Machida 29-28, while the third had Henderson winning 29-28.“He’s a very great opponent for me, and I have a lot of respect for him,” Machida said while fans booed. “My strategy was to keep the fight standup, and I think I got it. I think I completely dominated the first round, second round, third round.” RONDA ROUSEY AND Liz Carmouche made history just by stepping into the UFC cage. When Rousey recorded another savage victory with her signature move, she demonstrated why she could be a trailblazer in women’s sports for years to come.Rousey won the UFC’s first women’s bout Saturday night, beating Carmouche on an armbar with 11 seconds left in the first round of their bantamweight title fight at UFC 157.Rousey (7-0) defended her belt with her seemingly inevitable move, forcing Carmouche to tap out after bending back her arm. Rousey raised both arms in victory while flat on the canvas after the longest fight of the mixed martial artist’s ascendant career.“Is this real life right now? I’m not sure,” said Rousey, a former judo star with just two years of pro MMA experience.Former UFC champion Lyoto Machida counterpunched his way to a split decision over Dan Henderson on the undercard at Honda Center, and bantamweight Urijah Faber beat Ivan Menjivar with an acrobatic rear naked choke late in the first round.But the sellout crowd largely showed up to see Rousey, whose unique combination of star power, athleticism and skill singlehandedly ended UFC President Dana White’s long-standing disinterest in women’s MMA. White even put Rousey and Carmouche in the main event of a pay-per-view show by the sport’s dominant promotion. (Ronda Rousey celebrates defeating Liz Carmouche after their UFC 157 women’s bantamweight championship mixed martial arts match – C. Hong/AP/Press Association Images)Rousey has won all seven of her professional MMA bouts and three amateur fights by armbar, a judo move that has dislocated at least two prior opponents’ elbows.“I had to learn to take my time in MMA, and I was just able to keep a clear head,” said Rousey, who became the first American woman to win an Olympic judo medal in Beijing.Rousey dealt with constant attention from media and fans in recent weeks, a function of her rising stardom in the UFC and the larger sports world. She said the pressure wasn’t anything she couldn’t handle.“There’s no amount of press that can save these girls from me,” she said.Carmouche earned a huge ovation from the sellout crowd for giving Rousey more trouble than she had ever faced.“I thought I had it,” said Carmouche, who served three tours of duty in Iraq. “Like everything else, you make a mistake, and it turns around.”Machida (19-3), the former light heavyweight champion, had lost three of his previous five bouts before edging Henderson (29-9) in a slow, technical fight. Machida used his typical elusiveness and unorthodox, karate-based techniques to pick away at Henderson.Both fighters raised their arms in victory after the final horn, but Machida landed 68 percent of the fight’s significant strikes, with a 23-8 advantage in head strikes.

Reminder Magazines Just One Element of the Overall Brand

By on September 14, 2019

first_imgAnd of course, he’s right. Magazines and newspapers, once the center of our publishing universe, now are only one part of the bigger branded experience. This isn’t a new concept but it becomes a more solid reality every day.Coming from an online editor, perhaps I should have rephrased the question, especially when asking the former top editor of a magazine for marketers. Duh, Jason.Anyway, for those of you who actually were wondering what Bloom’s thoughts are on his Ad Age experience and on the industry, here’s what he wrote:I feel proud to have been part of the team that took it from being a newspaper to a genuinely multi-faceted publication. As to the marketing and media business, there’s almost too much to say to sum up my thoughts in a sentence or two, but we all know it’s going through a massive transition. Marketers are going to keep shifting to more direct, engaging and measurable ways of conversing with their audience and they’re going to need to deliver things audiences really want or even need—as I’ve said before the marketing is going to become a service, and in some ways even a product. The media owners and agencies who are going to succeed will be the ones that help them figure out how best to do that—and how to charge for all their work on that challenge.

Another question I asked was: Looking back at your time at Ad Age, what are your thoughts about the magazine? The industry?The first part of Bloom’s response was, well, somewhat snippy: Without meaning to sound defensive, Ad Age isn’t a magazine. Sure, that’s one way in which it delivers weekly analysis—a way that’s still valued by many senior executives—but a huge proportion of what it does today it does digitally.last_img read more

Earmarks Congress Mulls Return of Practice that Enriched Alaska

first_imgIn Sen. Ted Stevens’ day, Alaska thrived on earmarks, the congressional practice of directing federal dollars to home-state projects. Lawmakers agreed in 2011 to end the tradition, in response to public outrage over projects such as Alaska’s so-called “bridge to nowhere.” To this day, nearly every account of alleged excess features as Exhibit A  the bridge that would’ve connected Ketchikan to its island airport.  But now, there’s serious talk in Washington of bringing back the earmark.Download Audio“I have been a fan of earmarks since I got here the first day,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told reporters at the Capitol last week. “Keep in mind that’s what the country has done for more than 200 years.”Democrats aren’t united on this. President Obama opposes earmarks. Reid says he doesn’t care.“I disagree … with Obama on earmarks,” Reid said. “He’s wrong.”Among Republicans, the issue is also divisive. GOP senators debated it during a policy meeting last week. Opponents say earmarks are wasteful, while advocates say they may be the grease needed to break Congressional deadlock. Alaska’s congressional delegation, though, is solidly pro-earmark,  with both senators on the Appropriations Committee, where most of the earmarking used to happen. Sen. Lisa Murkowski says the stereotype is that earmarks fund obscure projects in the dark of night. More typically, she says, a city council passes a resolution supporting a project and asks for her help.“And they come to us, and we put it on our Web site,” she said. “And then people say ‘well surely that’s something that you would advocate as their representative back here in Washington, D.C.’ But did you know that’s called an earmark?”At least, it is if the lawmaker writes it into a bill. Now, Congress just sends money to the government agencies, and they decide what projects to spend it on. So lawmakers who want to press for a project routinely contact agency chiefs to make their case. Murkowski says it amounts to earmarking in secret: “When you go through the back door, that’s, I believe, taking you back to the days of the deal done in the dark of the night in the smoke-filled room.”There are other  ways around the ban. A New York congressman, for instance, didn’t direct any money to a ladder manufacturer in his district, but in a defense bill last week, he essentially orders the Army to brief Congress on the benefits of “carbon fiber ladders.”Sen. Mark Begich says earmarking doesn’t bust the budget. It only directs money within a budget.“You know, we’re closest to the people in a lot of ways and understanding the needs, and I think to have us as part of the process is important, and earmarks allow the opportunity to do that,” he said.Alaska Congressman Don Young, in effect, made earmarking a household word by setting aside big money for the Ketchikan bridge a decade ago. He says the Constitution gives Congress the power of the purse, and Congress should use it.“I don’t know what’s wrong with my party,” he said in an interview late last year.  “I frankly think they had their head in the sand, when they said ‘We can’t have earmarks. We have to balance the budget.’ We transferred that power to the president.”But Speaker of the House John Boehner told Fox News this week, as long as he’s in charge, the ban stays.“I started this effort in 2006, to get rid of earmarks,” the Ohio Republican said. “We are not going back to the nonsense that went on before then.”So far, Washington’s inertia seems to be in Boehner’s favor on this one.last_img read more

Yunus urges UNSC to intervene Rohingya crisis

By on September 3, 2019

first_imgMuhammad Yunus Nobel laureate Muhammad Yunus in an open letter on Tuesday urged the UN Security Council to intervene the humanitarian crisis in the Rakhine state of Myanmar.”As you are aware, the human tragedy and crimes against humanity have taken a dangerous turn in the Arakan region of Myanmar. It needs your immediate intervention,” said Yunus in the letter sent to the president and members of the Security Council, according to a press release.According to different organisations, recent military offensive by the Myanmar army in Rakhine state has led to the killing of hundreds of Rohingya people, Yunus added.  The Nobel peace laureate mentioned hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced, and villages have been burned, women raped, many civilians arbitrarily arrested, and children killed.He pointed out humanitarian aid organisations have been almost completely denied access to Myanmar, creating an appalling humanitarian crisis in an area already extremely poor.Quoting local administration sources, around 120,000 people have fled to Bangladesh during the last twelve days, Yunus said.He said human misery created by such massive displacement of men, women, and children under the threat of death is getting worse every day.”I, along with several Nobel laureates, and eminent global citizens denounced the previous spate of violence late last year and wrote to you to intervene. Despite initiatives taken by you, the situation has not improved. This time, I urge you to take decisive actions to stop the violence against innocent civilians and bring permanent peace in Rakhine,” said Yunus.  The Nobel laureate said, “I call on UNSC to intervene immediately by using all available means. I request you to take immediate action for cessation of indiscriminate military attack on innocent civilians that is forcing them to leave their home and flee country to turn into stateless people.””I urge you to persuade Myanmar government to take immediate steps to implement the recommendations of the Rakhine Advisory Commission which the Myanmar government established in 2016 under the pressure of international community,” Yunus said. He said the commission, mostly comprised of Myanmar citizens, chaired by Kofi Annan, recommended providing citizenship to the Rohingyas, to allow them freedom of movement, rights and equality before the law, to ensure communal representation, lack of which affects Muslims disproportionately, to facilitate UN assistance in ensuring safety and security of returning people.Yunus mentioned decades of persecution appears to be breeding radicalisation which the Rakhine Advisory Commission, rightly apprehended.He said the fear became reality through the attack on Myanmar security forces by the militants.Unless, constructive effort to build lasting peace is taken, the situation will get worse which in turn may pose serious security threat to the neighbouring countries, Yunus observed.He suggested a bold change in approach is needed by United Nations and the international community if there is to be an end to the cycle of violence against the Rohingyas.The Nobel laureate said the government of Myanmar needs to be told that international support and finance is conditional on a major change in policy towards the Rohingya.Yunus said propaganda and incitement of hatred and all violence, particularly state violence against Rohingyas must stop, discriminatory laws and policies must go, the recommendations of Kofi Annan’s commission must be implemented immediately.He also said the world is waiting to see that UNSC has played its role to bring end to a humanitarian crisis and build peace in the region.last_img read more
