BURNABY, B.C. – The RCMP arrested protesters when officers enforced a court injunction early Thursday ordering the removal of all structures from a site where the Trans Mountain pipeline ends in Burnaby.RCMP Cpl. Daniela Panesar said police began enforcing the B.C. Supreme Court injunction that was obtained by the City of Burnaby last week.“For safety reasons, we can’t have people there, so there have been arrests of people that have refused to leave,” she said in a phone interview.- Advertisement -Police “maintained a dialogue with the residents of the camp in the hopes that they would obey the injunction and vacate the location” within a 48-hour deadline set by the court, the RCMP said in a news release.That deadline passed Sunday night but protesters at the encampment, known as Camp Cloud, said Monday they were prepared to protect a sacred fire, which has been burning since the camp was set up late last year. They also said they were prepared to tie themselves to structures rather than obey the injunction.Panesar said police and the city worked together to enforce the court order and an exclusion zone, which also applied to the media, was established around the camp as the work began. She said the exclusion zone allowed city workers to bring in heavy equipment to remove structures that include a two-storey wooden building, a cabin, an outdoor shower, more than a dozen tents and multiple vehicles and trailers.Advertisement The RCMP news release said “violence or disorder” was not expected and Panesar said she had not heard of any issues during the early hours of the camp’s removal.The camp has grown since last November when opponents of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion parked a single trailer at the gates of the Kinder Morgan tank farm on Burnaby Mountain.The camp has become a rallying point for demonstrators opposed to the pipeline, which will more than triple the amount of bitumen and other oil products moving from Edmonton to Burnaby before it is shipped overseas by tanker.The federal government approved expansion of the pipeline in 2016 but environmental and B.C. government opposition led Kinder Morgan, the pipeline’s original owner, to announce it would back out of the project.Advertisement The federal government offered $4.5 billion to purchase the project and Kinder Morgan is presenting that offer to its shareholders, with expectation the sale will be approved later this month or in September. The purchase price, which includes the existing pipeline, pumping stations, rights of way, and the Westridge marine terminal in Burnaby, does not cover the construction costs of building the new pipeline, previously estimated at about $7.4 billion.

Despite netting the ball 16 times, Pogba was criticised for his fallout with former United boss Jose Mourinho.“After this season and everything that happened this season, with my season being my best season as well… I think for me it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else.” the Frenchman said during United’s promotional tour to Japan.“I have been for three years in Manchester and have been doing great – some good moments and some bad moments, like everybody and like everywhere else.“There is a lot of talking and a lot of thinking,” the 26-year-old told reporters in Tokyo on Sunday.Should Pogba move on to Santiago Bernabéu, the Red Devils are likely to ask a higher fee than they spent on the midfielder in 2016: a then world record £89 million.Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane has shown an interest to bring his countryman to the Spanish capital, while Juventus are looking to get their former superstar back, and is ready to increase the wage if required.Advertisement
zoomIllustration; Image Courtesy: Pixabay under CC 2.0 license In 2018, Estonian shipping company Tallink Grupp transported the highest ever number of passengers and cargo but saw a decrease in its revenue and profit.The total number of passengers increased to 9.8 million in 2018, which is nearly 900 passengers more than in the previous year.A more significant increase was recorded in the number of cargo units transported by the group. The number of cargo units rose by 5.7% to 385,000.As informed, Tallink Grupp’s passenger numbers increased on nearly all the group’s routes and the number of cargo units transported increased on all the routes, with record numbers of passengers and cargo being transported on the Estonia-Finland routes and Estonia-Sweden routes, and the largest ever number of passengers transported also on the Latvia-Sweden route in 2018.Despite the records achieved, the group’s revenue and profit were impacted by higher fuel costs, lower charter revenue and a longer-than-planned docking of one of the group’s vessels in spring 2018.The group’s unaudited consolidated revenue decreased by 1.8% in 2018 to EUR 949.7 million from EUR 967 million in 2017. In addition, Tallink’s net profit for the financial year was EUR 40 million, compared to EUR 46.5 million seen in 2017. However, the total revenue from the group’s route operations increased in 2018 by EUR 0.7 million and amounted to EUR 883.7 million.„2018 was a year of some contrasts for Tallink Grupp. On the one hand we achieved a number of records in terms of passenger numbers, cargo units and numbers of trips completed by our vessels. I am particularly pleased that the Estonia-Finland routes, with significant competitive pressures and other challenges on the route, have seen passenger numbers increase and even produce all-time records,” Paavo Nõgene, Tallink Grupp’s CEO, commented.„On the other hand, several factors negatively influenced our financial results, so our total outcome for the year was not record-breaking. One of the factors was the reduction of charter revenues by EUR 10.8 million compared to 2017, as we had only one vessel chartered out instead of three in the previous year,” he explained.“However, it is clear that the biggest impact on our profits last year came from significantly increased fuel costs, which were EUR 16.6 million higher than in 2017. We are, of course, taking a number of steps to reduce the impact of the global price fluctuations on our business, but fuel costs will inevitably always form a significant part of our costs,” Nõgene added.The group’s total investments in 2018 amounted to EUR 36.4 million with several of Tallink’s ships receiving both technical upgrades and as well as updates to passenger areas and cabins onboard.AS Tallink Grupp provides passenger and cargo transportation services in the Northern region of the Baltic Sea. The company owns 14 vessels and operates under the brands of Tallink and Silja Line on seven different routes.Related:Tallink Grupp Vessel Joins Research Project for Autonomous Ships
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 30 Sept 2014 – The Premier talking tough last week about the conditions at Clement Howell High School; the country’s leader who was obviously not aware of the dilapidated state of some parts of the campus got an up close look when he participated in a clean-up day during National Youth Week. He said: “The buildings… cannot inspire or foster any positive outcomes when our people, our children, our future are left to meet mold and rust and broken desks, windows and chairs day after day.” It echoed the sentiments of many residents. Hon Dr Rufus Ewing calling on Government Support Services and UK Advisor Norman Watts, to step up to the plate and get the school in better shape… quick to clarify that his critique should not be interpreted as disappointment in his Minister but as a call for the grounds to be improved for the over 1,000 first through fifth formers. Not all the country’s leader was on about in a media release yesterday… announcing that he stands with his Government Support Services minister, Hon George Lightbourne who last week may have gotten himself into some hot water when he disputed the salary of Norman Watts, who is paid around $100,000 per year. Lightbourne and others believe Watts’ time with government is up and the money for his salary would be better used elsewhere. The Governor, His Excellency Peter Beckingham issued statement to say the Minister and House of Assembly Members are not allowed to give direction on who works in TCIG, that that is his job as head of the public sector. The Premier making it clear though, that “ While the Public Service Ordinance governs Ministerial involvement in appointments to the Public Service, prudence dictates that in matters of significant financial implications such as this, that there be collaboration … such decision is also a matter of policy and the views of the Minister should have been taken into consideration instead of being simply ignored.” Eagles win again at InterHigh Championships Recommended for you PNP Convention Feb 19 Weekend; South Caicos woman announces at large interest Related Items:clement howell high school, george lightbourne, norman watts, peter beckingham, rufus ewing Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp NEW CHAIRMAN, PNP keeps Ewing
