Manitoba Hydro increase tempered regulator orders lower rates on reserves

Posted On Oct 13 2019 by

first_imgWINNIPEG – Manitoba Hydro has lost a bid to raise electricity rates by almost eight per cent and has been ordered to start charging a separate, lower rate in Indigenous communities.The Public Utilities Board on Tuesday approved an average rate increase of 3.6 per cent as of June 1. It also told the Crown corporation that First Nations residents in the new customer category are not to face an increase this year.The reduced rate is needed because evidence has shown 96 per cent of people living on reserves are poor and are experiencing energy poverty, the board said in its 316-page decision.“In addition, the poor housing stock on reserves in Manitoba and the fact that the vast majority of on-reserve First Nations residential customers … have no access to the more economical option of natural gas for heating exacerbate the issue of energy poverty.“The new customer class and related affordability measure of a zero per cent rate increase are also consistent with the principle of reconciliation.”The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs said the separate rate class for on-reserve homes is the first of its kind in Canada and is a victory.“This decision recognizes the hardship faced by so many First Nations living on reserve. They see Hydro dams on their territory, generating revenue and electricity for Manitoba, while leaving only devastation and unaffordable bills behind,” Grand Chief Arlen Dumas said in a written statement.Manitoba Hydro has been taking on large amounts of debt to build new generating stations in the north and an extensive transmission line to bring the energy south. Hydro has said it will be seeking rate increases of near eight per cent for the next several years to keep its finances in order.The corporation’s president, Kelvin Shepherd, said finances are tight.“At the level of debt we’re talking about, where our interest costs are going to approach about $1.3 billion on revenues of only $1.5 billion or $1.6 billion, we don’t have a lot of surplus … to pay for that debt,” Shepherd said.But the board said Hydro’s plan to raise rates in order to keep debt down was more aggressive than necessary.The board also made several recommendations to the provincial government, which Crown Services Minister Cliff Cullen said he will consider. They include:— Reducing spending on programs that encourage energy efficiency because they are not economic.— Using water rental fees and other levies that Hydro pays the province every year to subsidize energy costs for low-income earners.— Allowing Manitoba Hydro to forgo payment of $900 million in taxes and fees connected to the BiPole Three transmission line to make up for the previous NDP government’s decision to divert the line along a more costly route.There was one recommendation from the board that Cullen ruled out immediately — giving some of the province’s planned $25-a-tonne carbon tax to the utility to keep rates down. The Progressive Conservative government has already said it would use the carbon tax money to offset tax cuts to all Manitobans.Cullen said the province is facing financial challenges of its own.“The government of Manitoba is facing a $500-million deficit this year, so the government of Manitoba is in a precarious financial situation as well.”last_img read more


SecretaryGeneral pledges UN support to Sierra Leones presidentelect

Posted On Oct 12 2019 by

In a statement issued by his spokesperson Mr. Ban commended all Sierra Leonean parties and their supporters “for exercising patience and restraint” during the tallying of votes in the 8 September poll, in which Ernest Bai Koroma of the All People’s Congress Party received 54.6 per cent and incumbent Vice-President Solomon Berewa of the Sierra Leone People’s Party obtained 45.4 per cent of the total valid votes cast. The final result was announced today.Mr. Ban extended his warm congratulations to Mr. Koroma and also commended the National Electoral Commission and Sierra Leone’s security agencies for the professional and efficient manner in which they performed their duties during the period, which saw two rounds of voting since neither of the top candidates received sufficient votes to be elected outright.“The Secretary-General wishes to assure the newly elected government of Sierra Leone of the continued support of the United Nations as the country continues to move towards durable political stability and sustainable economic development,” the statement concluded. The statement was echoed by the Secretary-General’s Executive Representative, Victor Angelo, who praised the statesmanship shown by Mr. Koroma and Mr. Berewa and by the outgoing President Ahmad Tejan Kabbah for “ensuring a peaceful process” during the counting period.“The elections are over,” Mr. Angelo said in his statement. “We all agree that the focus from now on is on ensuring national cohesion and unity, consolidating the gains made during the past five years and addressing the many challenges the country is still facing.”The presidential and parliamentary elections were Sierra Leone’s second since the end of the civil war in 2002, and the first since the withdrawal of the UN Mission in Sierra Leone (UNAMSIL).Since then assistance has been channelled through the UN Integrated Office in Sierra Leone (UNIOSIL), which today announced one more example of UN aid with the handing over of audio-visual equipment and computers to the Voice of Children Project (VOC), managed by the Office.Presiding at the hand-over ceremony, UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Goodwill Ambassador Fabrienne Demal, a Belgian pop star popularly known as Axelle Red, praised the children for their courage and enthusiasm and advised them to take their newly acquired journalistic skills seriously.The Voice of Children project is regarded internationally as a highly successful communications tool for stimulating critical discussion among children in peace consolidation environments. It was launched as a non-profit public service radio facility for and by the children of Sierra Leone on the issues that affect their lives most intimately. 17 September 2007Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today pledged continuing support for Sierra Leone following the announcement of the opposition victory in presidential elections, the first since United Nations peacekeepers left in 2005 after helping to bring peace and stability to the West African country that was torn asunder by a brutal 10-year civil war. read more

Improved cereal production expected but staple food prices also rise – UN

Posted On Oct 2 2019 by

“The expected increase in grain output is forecast to boost inventories and push up the global stock-to-use ratio to 25.3 per cent, an even more comfortable (supply and demand) situation than predicted at the start of the season,” FAO said. Additionally, the agency did not significantly change its forecast for world cereal utilization in the coming year, which is expected to grow by 1.6 per cent, led by maize – and to some extent lower-quality wheat supplies – used as animal feed. FAO also said that its Dairy Price Index rose 8.6 per cent; the Vegetable Oil Price Index rose 7.4 per cent; the Sugar Price Index rose 2.5 per cent; and the Meat Price Index remained broadly stable, rising 0.3 per cent. On the other hand, on the back of increased cereal production expected, the FAO Cereal Price Index declined by 3.0 percent from July and is 7.4 per cent below its August 2015 level. Releasing its Food Price Index, a measure of the monthly change in international prices of a basket of food commodities, the FAO said today that the Index’s August average was 165.6 points, up 1.9 per cent from July and almost seven per cent higher compared to the corresponding period last year. “The monthly jump was mostly driven by cheese and palm oil quotations, while those for wheat, maize and rice all fell,” FAO noted in a news release today. The agency also raised its world cereal production forecast for the year to 2,566 million tonnes, up 22 million tonnes (0.85 per cent) from July projections. According to the FAO Cereal Supply and Demand Brief, also released today, the primary reason for the increase is the anticipated record global wheat harvest and a large upward revision to this year’s maize crop in the United States of America. The higher forecast of maize production has also pushed up the expected coarse grain global output for the year to around 1,329 million tonnes, some 2.1 per cent higher than in 2015, the UN agency said. It further noted that the wheat output forecast has been raised to 741 million tonnes, driven because of upward revisions to projections in Australia, India, Russia and North America. Rice production, too, is expected to hit a new record this year at almost 496 million tonnes, owing to favourable weather conditions in much of Asia and more farmers in the United States shifting to the crop. read more


New cars safer according to latest NCAP results

Posted On Oct 2 2019 by

The latest NCAP results have highlighted the safety gains made by car makers. Four cars achieved a maximum five star rating for occupant protection, and for the first time, one of those five star cars is a small family car. New models in the supermini segment, one of the most popular in the UK, also fared well with three models reaching four stars for occupant safety and two for pedestrian protection. Commenting on the news, SMMT chief executive, Christopher Macgowan said,‘These results show the continuing efforts by the automotive industry to produce safer models, and with further protective technology being engineered into vehicles we can expect this to be a continuing trend.’He continued, ‘Euro NCAP still does not recognise the full range of technology employed by car makers. Active safety measures, such as assisted braking and stability controls, are now common place and have a significant part to play in reducing casualty numbers. Active measures are not reflected in these tests.’Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more


Niagara homecoming for retired Bank of Canada leader

Posted On Oct 2 2019 by

Dean of Business Philip Kitchen, left, chats with Paul Jenkins at the Brock-organized event.Look in your wallet or purse and you’ll see Paul Jenkins’ signature on any Canadian bank notes printed since 2003.But on Nov. 4, you could see Jenkins himself — recently retired as Senior Deputy Governor of the Bank of Canada — in his native St. Catharines, chatting about topics ranging from potash sales to Canada’s recovery from the Great Recession and fiscal implications of the recent U.S. elections.The occasion was a casual social event at the Quality Inn Parkway Convention Centre, organized by Brock Faculty of Business alumni and attended by about 60 people, including members of the local business community.Jenkins — who attended Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School in the 1960s before going on to become one of Canada’s most informed economists — delivered some brief remarks, answered questions and shared his thoughts on the country’s economic past and the road it must take in the future.A key reason Canada fared better than Britain or the U.S. in the recent recession is that Canada’s regulated banks are held to higher standards of stability and quality than in many other countries, he said. As the global economy continues a modest recovery, the new economic order will see more robust growth in emerging economies.But opportunities await Canada, particularly regions like Niagara, he said. They must diversify economies to identify and generate services and products that add value to what’s already being produced less expensively elsewhere.Doing that, Jenkins said, requires attracting and retaining the best and brightest people, and developing technologies that can transform traditional economies.“Think globally while acting locally,” he said. “We must develop partnerships and invest in enhancing our productivity through technology.” read more

Posted On Sep 5 2019 by

Farakka Gazaldoba responsible for Bangladesh flood

Posted On Sep 3 2019 by

first_img.A special conference has held Farakka barrage and Galzaldoba dam constructed by India responsible for monsoon flooding in Bangladesh.The findings of the January conference, made public on Monday, said the dams constructed in the upstream rivers have put serious detrimental effects on the rivers and ecology in Bangladesh.Bangladesh Paribesh Andolon (BAPA) and Bangladesh Environment Network (BEN) jointly organised the special conference titled ‘Flood, Water Logging and Landslide’ with the participation of local and international experts on 12-13 January this year in Dhaka.As much as 71 papers were presented by 80 environment experts in 15 sessions of the conference.The organisers of the conference – BAPA and BEN – disclosed the 59 points of findings at a press conference at the Dhaka Reporters’ Unity in the capital on Monday.“The recent flood has once again proved that we are yet to find any solution to the flood problems of the country,” said BAPA joint secretary Iqbal Habib.The conference suggests that Bangladesh should immediately sign the 1997’s Convention on the Law of the Non-Navigational Uses of International Watercourses of the United Nations.Habib said the conference also asked Bangladesh to inspire India and other neighbouring countries to sign the convention to ensure fair shares of international waters for Bangladesh.“We must not blindly follow the prescription of foreign experts and aid groups regarding the policy of rivers and waters,” observed the experts, as quoted by Habib, adding, “We must learn from the past mistakes.”They suggested that the government should involve local people in repairing and maintaining flood control infrastructures.He said the conference expressed its concern over indiscriminate construction of infrastructures in the hill tracts, deforestation, hill cutting and unauthorised human settlement and agricultural activities in the hill tracts.The conference observed that the reason of the most of the landslides in the CHT region in July 2017, which claimed more than 130 lives, was a manmade one.The conference also expressed its concerns over the increasing risk of deforestation created due to the migration of Rohingya people.Water-logging problem in Dhaka and other cities has worsened because of indiscriminate construction on dams on riverbanks around the capital.Vice president of BAPA M Firoze Ahmed, secretary general Md Abdul Matin, Dhaka representative of BEN Mahmudur Rahman and central member of BAPA Ruhin Hussain Prince were also present at the programme.last_img read more

Titanfall Battle Royale Apex Legends Is Real Free Out Now

Posted On Sep 1 2019 by

first_imgStay on target Well the “secret” is finally out. Not too long ago Respawn Entertainment apparently had a bunch of influencers play its new game, a battle royale called Apex Legends set in the developer’s Titanfall universe. Details promptly began to leak like the game’s free-to-play model, its lack of the mechs that give Titanfall its character in the first place, and the game’s forthcoming reveal this very Monday.And it was all true! Apex Legends is real and you can see it for yourself right here. Or play it right now.After a very long teaser stream showing off the empty map players battle it out on, we finally saw it. Respawn fully revealed Apex Legends and how hopefully its new hero abilities wedded to the sheer joy of Titanfall’s on-foot first-person shooter combat and mobility will help this multiplayer fight to the death stand out even if there aren’t giant robots in it. For the subset of Titanfall fans who don’t even like the robots this must be music to their weird ears.But yes Apex Legends is a battle royale, so it’s about players competing to be the last ones standing in a genre everyone seems to love except me, from Fortnite children to Call of Duty fans to Red Dead Online cowboys to PUBG veterans. And given Titanfall’s history of critical acclaim but soft sales, pivoting it to the most popular, most streamable type of game out there right now seems smart for Respawn, now fully owned by EA. The free-to-play models expands its potential reach even more, although Respawn promises payments are for cosmetics only.How does it look though? Despite the Titanfall connection (Apex Predators are a mercenary faction in previous games and this bloodsport is a hobby of theirs) Apex Legends looks more like a battle royale take on Overwatch. Instead of generic soldiers, players control specific legendary characters with colorful personalities and unique weaponry, but no wall-running?There’s a cheery robot with a grappling hook and a lady who phases between dimensions. One guy uses hologram projections while another wears one of those dope plague doctor masks. Players also apparently have to play in squads, so picking characters with complementary skills and a leader who can land in prime loot territory is part of the strategy. These characters are so important that there are even methods, however risky, for reviving them in the middle of the battle even after death.Although there’s nothing stopping us from playing it right now on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, there are still questions to be asked about Apex Legends. Can it co-exist with EA’s other big multiplayer shooter out soon Anthem? Will we ever get an actual Titanfall 3 after Respawn wraps up the one EA Star Wars game still alive? And does all this Apex Legends news just make you want to play Titanfall 2 again, too? That game was great! Its endlessly creative campaign was a Game of the Year all on its own. More people should’ve played it. There’s still time. Trade In Your Nintendo Switch For a Better Battery (With a Catch)Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech Suits last_img read more
