Government stand on death penalty welcomed

The Law and Society Trust acknowledges and appreciates that Sri Lanka has redefined its position with regards to the reintroduction of the death penalty.  Justice Minister Wijeydasa Rajapakshe stated in Parliament on 6 October 2015, that Sri Lanka will not implement the death penalty temporarily as the country has decided to vote in favour of the UN General Assembly Resolution on “Moratorium on the Use of Death Penalty” in 2015.Although in 2012 Sri Lanka abstained from voting on the afore-mentioned UN General Assembly Resolution, in the years 2007, 2008 and 2010 Sri Lanka had voted in favour of a moratorium on the use of the death penalty and LST appreciates this stance taken even amidst mounting public favour towards reimplementation due to the increased crime rate and the resultant general public perception of the death penalty as a deterrent to crime. Currently over 82% have either introduced moratoria by law or in practice or have abolished it. Over the past 12 months alone, Fiji, Madagascar, Suriname, and the state of Nebraska in the United States have abolished the practice of putting people to death. In Burkina Faso and the Republic of Korea, new abolition laws have been submitted to parliament. Togo has ratified the second optional protocol to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which aims to abolish the death penalty. China has removed the death penalty for several categories of crimes. Legal bodies in India and Ghana have recommended abolition. Authorities in Afghanistan, Malaysia, Thailand and the United States have announced reviews of the fairness and accuracy of the processes that convict and execute people.These moves by Nations across the globe and in Asia goes on to show that the global practice is indeed towards abolition. Justice is not about vengeance and we as civilized societies must move towards a form of justice system which seeks real and genuine recognition by the offenders for their wrongdoings. The Death Penalty is the ultimate violation of an individual’s most basic rights and in practice is often carried out in a discriminatory and arbitrary fashion with the potential to cause irreparable loss in a flawed criminal justice system. We only have to look at the recent case of the rape and brutal murder of the five year old girl to highlight that our criminal justice system is simply incapable of carrying out investigations and prosecuting offenders. Public outrage and the media too contributed to this. The enraged public response to catch the perpetrators and the call for “revenge” put significant pressure on the law enforcement authorities whose investigation techniques are questionable right from the start as evinced by the “confessions” of several offenders, and the treatment of the 17 year old boy suspected of having committed the act. To date the real perpetrator has not been apprehended. In these circumstances since no system, even an advanced legal system, can ever be hundred percent accurate we really must seek to completely abolish this brutal practice given that even in the situation of a moratorium the decision ultimately always lies at the whims of a policy maker. In light of this we encourage the government to take a step further and abolish the practice once and for all given that the practice has no place in the 21st Century. We also encourage the government to take steps to ratify the second optional protocol to the ICCPR which calls for the abolition of death penalty. It is not the increase in the severity of the punishment but the certainty of punishment which prevents potential offenders from committing crimes. The deterrent theory also assumes that all human beings are rational creatures who first engage in a process of weighing the pros and cons before acting out. This is not often the case as most crimes are committed under the influence of alcohol or in certain incidences by people with diminished capacities. The Justice Minister had also gone on to state that an interactive dialogue should be held to find out the root causes of crimes and that Parliament should focus attention on strengthening the laws to prevent crimes. This is by no means an easy task and there is a need for a massive overhaul of the system and action must be taken structurally to address the issue at hand with participation at all levels. There is also the need for massive public education be it related to crimes, related laws, sanction risks and consequences, sentencing policies and modifications to it etc.In the meantime one cannot forget the rights of victims and their families in seeing through effective investigations and proper retribution for crimes and the right to demand redress for the harm suffered throughexpeditious, responsive, fair, and accessible judicial and administrative mechanisms. A life of dignity for all includes the dignity of victims and their families, who must be acknowledged by all law enforcement and judicial personnel with full compassion and respect with paramount significance given to secure the safety of victims, their families and witnesses from intimidation and reprisal. read more

Federal NDPs proposed superwealth tax could raise 70B over 10 years budget

OTTAWA — The NDP’s proposed wealth tax, a centrepiece of the party’s election platform, could raise nearly $70 billion over the next 10 years, Canada’s budget watchdog has found.The “super-wealth tax,” as the NDP is calling it, is similar to an idea promoted by U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, and is part of the NDP’s campaign focus on tax fairness and inequality. The party wants to apply a one per cent tax to fortunes worth more than $20 million. Unlike a tax on income, a wealth tax would apply to all assets, including real estate, with the aim of reducing economic inequality. The NDP says the tax would apply only to the wealthiest one-tenth of one per cent of Canadian households.On Tuesday, the parliamentary budget officer (PBO) released a cost estimate of the proposal, part of its mandate to cost out election platforms. According to the analysis, the measure could raise $5.6 billion in the 2020-21 fiscal year, rising to nearly $9.5 billion in 2028-29. Andrew Coyne: What is the problem to which creating a wealth tax is a solution? The NDP’s new tax-the-rich plan is terrible, even by their standards William Watson: If you tax income effectively, you don’t have to tax wealth “Unlike the Liberals and Conservatives who work for their rich and powerful friends, we will help people who are struggling to get by,” NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh said in a news release. “Our plan is simple – we can afford to help people when we have the courage to ask the super-rich to pay a little bit more to fund the services we all rely on.”However, the PBO also noted that the cost estimate is highly uncertain, in part because wealthy households are likely to take steps to avoid the tax. “A large behavioural response is expected, due to avoidance and valuation optimization by wealthy families,” the analysis reads.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.The NDP, which released its election platform in June, has proposed a number of other tax reform measures, including a plan to increase the corporate tax rate from 15 to 18 per cent. The party also wants to increase the top income tax rate, which applies to those making more than $210,000, by two points, to 35 per cent.The platform further reiterated previous commitments to close tax loopholes, including the CEO stock option deduction, and to tax 75 per cent of profits on investments, up from the current rate of 50 per cent.A large behavioural response is expectedThe NDP would likely need the extra tax revenue to pay for major spending promises, including a pledge to enact universal pharmacare in 2020 with annual federal funding of $10 billion, and to publicly fund dental care, vision care, mental health care and hearing care within 10 years. The party has not provided estimates of how much those promises would cost.“Canadians deserve… expanded health care services to cover people head-to-toe – and we can do this when the very richest pay their fair share,” Singh said in the news release.The Liberals added the costing of party platforms to the parliamentary budget officer’s mandate in 2017. To date, the PBO has estimated costs for just two NDP proposals — the wealth tax and a promise to eliminate interest on all current and future federal student loans.That analysis, released last week, found that eliminating student loan interest could cost the government about $5 billion over 10 years.The Liberals and Conservatives have yet to release their campaign platforms.• Email: mforrest@postmedia.com | Twitter: read more

Cost rises to 85B for North West refinery project northeast of Edmonton

CALGARY – A partnership that plans to build an oilsands refinery northeast of Edmonton says the cost of the project has risen to $8.5 billion.North West Redwater Partnership also said in a news release Wednesday that the startup date for its bitumen upgrader has been pushed back to September 2017 from mid-2016.When the project was approved in November 2012, the cost was estimated at $5.7 billion.The partnership, made up of North West Upgrading Inc. and Canadian Natural Upgrading Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Canadian Natural Resources Limited (TSX:CNQ), said the higher cost is “due to a combination of cost inflation and the inability to fully capture certain cost savings initiatives.”It also says that it believes the merits of the project are still positive.The refinery is expected to process 50,000 barrels per day of raw bitumen supplied by Canadian Natural and the Alberta Petroleum and Marketing Commission.“The toll payers believe, that upon successful completion of the project, this refinery will strengthen their organizations through providing a competitive return on investment and by adding 50,000 barrels per day of bitumen conversion capacity in Alberta which will help improve pricing and reduce pricing volatility on all Western Canadian heavy crude oil that they produce or are entitled to market through royalties,” the press release said.“This project will provide a local market for Alberta oilsands production that is not reliant on export pipelines, and a low carbon solution that will ensure that the CO2 footprint of the products produced by the refinery will be among the lowest in the world.” Cost rises to $8.5B for North West refinery project northeast of Edmonton AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by The Canadian Press Posted Dec 4, 2013 7:34 pm MDT read more

As Cyprus talks continue UN envoy spotlights positive climate of negotiations

In a statement released earlier today, Mr. Eide reported that the Turkish Cypriot leader, Mustafa Akýncý, and the Greek Cypriot leader, Nicos Anastasiades, were now focused on “unresolved core issues” related to governance, property, and criteria on territory, as they both continued their pursuit of a comprehensive settlement for the political situation facing the Mediterranean island. “Mr. Akýncý and Mr. Anastasiades discussed those issues at length in a pragmatic and constructive manner, making further progress,” the UN official declared. “They provided new guidance to the negotiators who will meet three more times this week to carry forward their work on core issues.” On the topic of confidence building measures, the statement read, both leaders “took stock of the work done to implement already agreed confidence building measures” and also exchanged views on the economic prospects that would arise from a solution. “With substantive negotiations now at the centre of their work, Mr. Akýncý and Mr. Anastasiades reiterated their resolve to reach a comprehensive settlement as soon as possible,” Mr. Eide continued, highlighting the “positive climate” characterizing the negotiations. The next meeting between the Cypriot leaders is set for 10 July. read more

Baldness cure could come from sideeffect of cancer drug

Around four in 10 men suffer male pattern baldness by the age of 45 and two thirds by the age of 60. At the moment only two drugs, minoxidil and finasteride, are available for the treatment of male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia) – the classic type of receding hair loss in men. To find a new treatment, scientists at Manchester University first studied a cancer drug called… But both have side effects and often produce disappointing results. The only other option open to patients losing their hair is transplantation surgery. A cure for baldness could be on the horizon after British scientists discovered that an osteoporosis drug stimulates hair growth three times quicker than other drugs.

Astronaut Chris Hadfield A tremendous honour to command ISS

first_imgCOMMANDER CHRIS HADFIELD, the ISS astronaut who has given a fascinating look at life in space through his Twitter account, has spoken of his joy at being named the new commander of the International Space Station.Last night was his first in the new role, and Queen Elizabeth II was among those who congratulated him on the news: I am pleased to transmit my personal best wishes, and those of all Canadians, to Colonel Christopher Hadfield as he takes command of the International Space Station on Wednesday. Our thoughts and best wishes are with him and the entire crew, as are our prayers for an eventual safe return to family, friends and fellow Canadians. Hadfield has amassed a sizeable Twitter fanbase of more than half a million followers, and has proved himself to be quite the adept Tweeter. He regularly posts updates, but also keeps an eye out for requests for photos from followers – and has tweeted pictures of Ireland, for example.Naturally, he took to Twitter to express his gratitude for the messages of support he received after the news was announced:In a statement, Cmdr Hadfield said: “It is a tremendous honour to assume command of the ISS. I will do my best to acquit myself well, accomplish the utmost as a crew for all the International Partners, and fully live and share the experience on behalf of so many around our world.”He noted that 2013 is the 50th year of Canada in space since the launch of the country’s first satellite Alouette, so his commanding of the ISS is “a first for our country, but is really just the culmination of a lot of other firsts”.One of the many reasons Hadfield has such a following is his inspirational attitude, as summed up in this video he made on how to achieve your goals:(canadianspaceagency/YouTube)Read: ‘My daughter is in Ireland’: Astronaut Chris Hadfield says ‘ask me anything’>Read: Commander Hadfield loves Ireland and we’ve got the t-shirt to prove it>last_img read more

How to use Facebooks new Timeline profile to see who has unfriended

first_imgClick on a year from the left-hand side of your Timeline.Locate your “Friends” box (pictured above). For me, it was located on the right-hand of the two columns. You basically have to scroll through the timeline until you see a box marked “Friends.”Here, you’ll see a link that says “Made x New Friends.” Click the link and scroll down.Under “Added Friends,” (pictured below) you’ll see all the people you made friends with that year. If you’re still friends on Facebook, you’ll see a little check next to the word “Friends.” If you’re not, you’ll see the “+1 Add Friend” button. If you don’t remember unfriending the person, it means that the person unfriended you. There was probably a time when the number of Facebook friends you had was reasonably small, like 40 or 50. Over the social networking site’s six-year-long life span most of us have added a great deal more friends and few people know their exact number of Facebookers we’ve connected with. In the days when we knew our friend number, it was not only easy to tell if someone unfriended us, but also who that person was.Nowadays you’ll most likely never realize if someone unfriends you; and if you do, it’s unlikely that you’ll figure out who it was. However the new Facebook Timeline, which is designed to act as a scrapbook of your life, is capable of unveiling the people who have unfriended you.As we mentioned earlier, the Timeline is only available for developers right now, but we did show you step-by-step how to set up a developers account and enable Timeline. For those of you who did that, you can follow the steps below to see who has unfriended you over the years. The best part about this is that you probably had no idea that you weren’t Facebook friends with the person you thought you’d been e-friends with since freshman year of college. Also, you can view other people’s Timelines and see how many of their friends unfriended them each year. This can be a major blow to your reputation, man.For those of you who enabled the developer’s version of Timeline, have you noticed any friends who you’re no longer friends with?via BuzzFeedlast_img read more

Cardinal Pell told he may not live to be released as hes

first_img Cardinal George Pell arriving at court last month. Share230 Tweet Email DISGRACED AUSTRALIAN CARDINAL George Pell “may not live to be released from prison”, the judge warned a Melbourne court today as the sentencing of the 77-year-old for child sex crimes began.Pell, the most senior Catholic clergyman ever found guilty of child sex abuse, faced a maximum 50 years in prison for assaulting two choirboys in a Melbourne cathedral in 1996-97. Today, he was sentenced to six years in jail but will be eligible for parole after three. The Australian cleric has been in custody since late February ahead of the sentencing hearing. Sitting at the back of the court as Justice Kidd read out his remarks, Pell was impassive and did not wear his white clerical collar with his black shirt and light olive-coloured jacket.The cardinal is “entitled to the balanced and steady hand of justice”, Chief Judge Peter Kidd told the County Court of Victoria as he opened his sentencing remarks.He warned that the cleric was on trial and not the Catholic Church and lamented a “lynch mob mentality” among some of the public, adding: “You are not to be made a scapegoat.”“I am not sitting in judgment of the Catholic Church,” Justice Kidd added, vowing to deal with only the facts of the case.Going through the crimes in graphic detail, Justice Kidd said that Pell’s actions had a “profound impact” on the life of the boy who survived his abuse and likely had a similar impact on a boy who later died of a heroin overdose.Assaulting two choirboys in a Melbourne cathedral with both present likely caused additional “degradation and humiliation”,” he said.He accused Pell of “callous indifference” to the suffering of the boys, who have not been named.The jury was told that Pell abused the two boys after catching them swigging from a bottle of sacramental wine in the sacristy after Sunday mass. He exposed himself and forced one of them to perform oral sex on him, and fondled the boy’s genitals while masturbating.Justice Kidd said the offences in the sacristy “involved a brazen and forceful sexual attack on the two victims”.“The acts were sexually graphic. Both victims were visibly and audibly distressed during this offending,” he said.Acknowledging Pell’s age and his health issues including cardiac problems and hypertension, Justice Kidd said that his sentence “carries with it a… possibility that you may not live to be released from prison”.“Of some real importance in my sentencing exercise is the fact that each year you spend in custody will represent a substantial portion of your remaining life expectancy,” he added.Pell was found guilty by a jury in December, but a suppression order Justice Kidd prevented media from reporting the case until late February, when prosecutors withdrew plans to hold a second trial.Victim reactionOne of the victims, who remains anonymous but issued a statement through his lawyer, said it was difficult to allow himself to feel the “gravity of the moment”. “I appreciate that the court has acknowledged what was inflicted upon me as a child,” h said. “However, there is no rest for me. Everything is overshadowed by the forthcoming appeal.”The father of the other victim, who died of a drug overdose in 2014, said through his lawyer that Pell’s sentence was “disappointing”.“Our client is disappointed with the short sentencing and has expressed sadness over what he believes is inadequate for the crime,” Lisa Flynn of Shine Lawyers said in a statement.“I admire the courage of my client to keep fighting on behalf of his deceased son. To him, this battle is not over.”© AFP 2019 Cardinal Pell told he ‘may not live to be released’ as he’s sentenced to six years in jail Pell was found guilty of assaulting two choirboys in a Melbourne cathedral in 1996-97.

Pearson recreates tents used by WWI soldiers in Spruce Production Division

first_imgWhen Bob Cromwell wanted to display a World War I-era tent at Pearson Air Museum, he wanted it to be as authentic as possible.Since WWI military surplus gear can be hard to come by, he called the company that made 800 tents for troops at Vancouver Barracks a century ago.Cromwell recalled that telephone conversation with Armbruster Manufacturing Co., which has been making tents since 1875.“We gave them the specification number” of the style of tent that housed spruce-mill soldiers at Vancouver Barracks, the museum manager said.The person on the other end of the phone told Cromwell: “We might have that.”There was a pause in the conversation, Cromwell said. He eventually heard the drawer of a file cabinet slam shut. Armbruster still had the original plans for that tent in its office. The company made a new 1916 eight-man pyramid tent for Pearson Air Museum.“We probably were the first group to assemble one in 80 years,” said Cromwell, chief of interpretation at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site.The tent now is helping Pearson Air Museum reflect a Vancouver chapter in WWI history, the Spruce Production Division that turned Northwest timber into wood for Allied aircraft.The inquiry from Pearson Air Museum was not unique, said Hellar Armbruster.“We’ve done a lot of one-off historical tents for museums all over country. We will make them to the exact specifications,” Armbruster said, thanks to an old file cabinet in the company archives.last_img read more
