ITF Qaaswa Tankers Crew Returns Home

first_imgzoom Fifteen crewmembers of the tanker Qaaswa, which was stranded off the coast of Tunisia since early May, have been sent home with most of their owed wages, according to International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF).Paul Falzon, ITF contact in Malta, has been helping the crew, which consisted of 13 Indian and two Pakistani seafarers, since May 13 after hearing from Malta that there was a ship outside its national waters whose crew felt threatened by the company.ITF said that, at that time, the company Alco Shipping Services, had not paid the crew’s wages for more than four months and had failed to carry out repairs on the vessel.After passing by Malta, the vessel was kept 100 miles out at sea, and was then ordered to anchor just off the coast of SfaxI. IFT informed that Alco left the vessel without fresh water and provisions for long periods of time and “was trying to force the crew to sail the unfit vessel to Egypt.”“The story isn’t over yet, however. We’re still pursuing one May salary and all the crew’s salaries for June – and will keep on until the men are paid what they are owed in full,” Mohamed Arrachedi, ITF inspector, said.Arrachedi added that the ITF is also defending the crews of another two of Alco Shipping Services’ vessels which are abandoned. The company’s ship Sharjah Moon is currently docked in Hamriyah Port, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, while the second ship, Ocean Pride, is at anchorage off the UAE coast.last_img read more

Man faces charges for making and selling fake transit passes in Calgary

first_imgCALGARY – Calgary police have charged a man after a lengthy investigation led to the discovery of more than $1 million in fake transit passes.The year-long investigation involved nine search warrants and eventually led to arrest of a 31-year-old Calgary man.The police investigation started on June 28, 2017, when Calgary Transit’s peace officers noticed an increasing number of high-quality, forged UPASS stickers.UPASS stickers are transit passes available only to post-secondary students.Officers located the stickers online and identified a suspect, who used fake names, different phone numbers and multiple ads to conceal who he was.A package of 3,300 fake stickers — worth $1.3 million to Calgary Transit — was then intercepted by Canadian Border Services Agency in January 2018.Police say the stickers were professionally printed in China and addressed to the suspect.Authorities say the suspect sold about $34,000 worth of fraudulent stickers between May 2015 and January 2018.David Philip Smerd, 31, has been charged with making forged documents, fraud over $5,000 and uttering forged documents.He is to appear in court on Sept. 10.last_img read more

Autumn Peltier up for Nobel childrens prize

first_img“I like to speak for the water because the water doesn’t have a voice,” said Peltier. “If nobody speaks up what will the water and environment be like in 10 to 20 years? What if we don’t have clean drinking water anywhere? We would all die if we didn’t have clean drinking water.”Peltier said she hopes others will join in her struggle to protect water around the world.“The reason I advocate for this is to inspire people to come together and try and purify the water,” said Peltier.She still remembers that day last December when she got her moment to speak directly to Trudeau. In an interview shortly after it happened Peltier described the encounter.“When I went up there, I was standing with the Elder, listening to what he was saying and I was told to give the prime minister the water bundle,” Peltier said, at the time. “And I said something to him. I said, ‘I am very unhappy with the choices you’ve made.’ And he said, ‘I understand that.’ And I started crying and all I got to say after that was, ‘the pipelines.’”Looking back, Peltier, who is from Wikwemikong, on Manitoulin Island in Ontario, said she didn’t know what she was going to tell the prime minister at the time and the words just tumbled out.“When I went up to give him the gift I didn’t what I was going to do. I just had this feeling. I guess my spirit just wanted to say something while I was there and it was an opportunity to just say it,” said Peltier. “When I think about what I said I am just trying to help my people and help my environment and it makes me feel proud.”The KidsRights organization will announce the winner of the prize Nov. [email protected]@JorgeBarrera Autumn Peltier, flanked by AFN National Chief Perry Bellegarde and AFN Elder Elmer Courchene presents a water bundle to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in December 2016.Jorge Barrera APTN NewsAutumn Peltier, a 13-year-old Wikwemikong girl who tearfully pleaded with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to protect the water is up for an international award.Autumn Peltier’s name came to be known across the country after she presented Trudeau with a water bundle of a copper bowl, a red cloth, tobacco and a small copper cup during an Assembly of First Nations meeting in December 2016. During the gift presentation, Peltier told Trudeau she was “unhappy” with his decision to approve the Kinder Morgan pipeline in British Columbia.Now Peltier is up for the International Children’s Peace Prize, known as the Nobel Prize for children. She is the only child out of 169 nominees from Canada.“When I found out that I was nominated for the award I was really excited and I am really excited to find out if I win or not,” said Peltier. “If I don’t win I am still really happy to be doing the work I am doing.”Peltier has dedicated herself to campaigning for water protection. This past July she was in Regina during the AFN’s general assembly to sign a treaty against the expansion of Alberta’s bitumen fields.last_img read more

A Cubs Fan Ponders If He Even Wants The Cubs To Win

Do I want — really, actually, genuinely want — the Cubs to win the World Series? It’s a question I grappled with at length after a couple whiskeys with my best friend from back home as they marched toward the pennant. I love the Cubs. I’ve always loved the Cubs. There is little else (some humans excluded) I love more than the Cubs. So what’s my problem, anyway?The Awl addressed the paradox with a cautionary tale from a Red Sox fan: “Without all the losing, the Red Sox are now just another pretty good team. The aura of mythology that swirled constantly around them was gone.” And that’s a big part of it. Losing is what the Cubs are known for. But we bleed-blue fans don’t root for lovable losers for the sake of it. We don’t do it because we’re proud of the title drought or miserable seasons. We don’t happily bask in the black-magic glow of curses or take masochistic joy in the outstretched arms of Bartmans.We root for them because eventually they will win, they just have to! It’s math! Curses aren’t real! And when they do win … my God, it will be ecstatic bliss. Angels will sing. Fathers, sons, mothers, daughters will sob tears of joy. Bill Murray will be there. Etc.The question is when do we want to cue the messianic chorus. Maybe Cubbie fandom is something like holding an American option — a piece of paper we Cubs fans carry around in our pocket and turn in at the bliss counter one day when they Win the World Series. In exchange we receive some number of singing angels. The longer this takes — the more heartache we bank — the more angels. That’s just math, people. If the Cubs had won it when I was, say, 3 years old, the rest of my fandom wouldn’t have been imbued with a greater, Sisyphean meaning. So, on my deathbed, yes, I should want nothing else than to cash in. If I’m watching from my high chair, I’d probably like to wait a while. To bide my time until 8:08 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday night, I hastily sketched a chart of how my 31-year-old self should weigh these priorities, complete with an “exercise boundary” that tells me when I should want the Cubs to win so I can cash in my pain for those angels. So what does my analysis reveal? Will I be rooting for the Cubbies? Of course. I just can’t not. In late October, math no longer applies.
