Tag: 上海保健交流群 Video of justice minister’s anti-Site C comments surfaces online

first_imgCullen said Wilson-Raybould needs to be the same person she was before she was elected – one who had views and values he was familiar with.According to him, her saying, ‘I fought for this, but lost in cabinet’ is a quote ‘very, very weak excuse for not doing the right thing.’When it was asked about the matter, the B.C. government responded with a statement from its Energy Ministry — declaring Site C has been developed by BC Hydro over 35 years and then approved in 2014 after vast consultation that includes nine years of outreach to First Nations.The statement said their government respects the right of anyone who wants to be involved in a peaceful protest, whether it be Site C or any other issue.Advertisement Wilson-Raybould’s spokesperson responded to inquiries about the video with a statement saying Site C was approved by the previous government, which set legally binding conditions with which the proponent must comply, and that the government is examining an appeal on the matter.Opponents of Site C continue to fight to stop construction of the dam, which would flood 5,000 hectares of land in the Peace.A group of protesters have initiated a hunger strike in Downtown Vancouver, outside of BC Hydro’s office — and have now abstained from eating for roughly two weeks.One protester, Kristin Henry, says she will not eat until the project is stopped. The Province says the $9-billion project will create hundreds of jobs over it’s 10-year construction period, and BC Hydro saw upwards of 5,000 people apply for work in the northern B.C. job fairs.Advertisement VANCOUVER, B.C. — Questions are being asked as comments against Site C made four years ago by the federal justice minister have surfaced.According to the Globe and Mail, Jody Wilson-Raybould reportedly said there are other ways to create and preserve power that don’t involve destruction of ‘pristine valleys’ in a video posted by the Common Sense Canadian to YouTube this week.The video in question was filmed at Paddle for the Peace in 2012, and uploaded to YouTube just days ago.- Advertisement -Elected in 2015 as the MP for Vancouver-Granville, Wilson-Raybould also remarked at the ‘country’s reputation is at stake with approval of projects like Site C, and Enbridge pipeline.’The criticism she expressed in the video came as a surprise to some, like Nathan Cullen.The NDP environment critic and MP for Skeena – Bulkley Valley said he thinks she still holds the views expressed in the video, and that raises some questions about why she is not speaking out now for stalling the project.Advertisementlast_img read more

Tag: 上海保健交流群 Breanna Stewart to be WNBA ambassador this season

first_imgFILE – In this Aug. 26, 2018 file photo, Seattle Storm’s Breanna Stewart in action against the Phoenix Mercury in a WNBA basketball playoff semifinal in Seattle. A person familiar with the decision says that Stewart will act as an ambassador for the WNBA this season and be paid by the league after the reigning MVP tore her Achilles over the winter and is out for the year. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity on Thursday night, May 23, 2019, because no official announcement has been made. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson, File)NEW YORK — Breanna Stewart will be a paid ambassador for the WNBA this season.The reigning MVP tore her right Achilles tendon while playing overseas this winter and because the league has no injury list for teams, the Seattle Storm suspended Stewart without pay to free up a roster spot.ADVERTISEMENT The WNBA will pay Stewart in excess of the roughly $65,000 base salary she would have made with the Storm, agent Lindsay Kagawa Colas confirmed to the AP on Friday.Colas said that the deal was done Thursday in discussion with deputy NBA commissioner Mark Tatum, who has been serving as the interim WNBA President. This was after Seattle and Stewart mutually agreed on the suspension. Seattle offered to keep Stewart on the roster and pay her full salary, but the 24-year-old said she wanted to help the team be the best it could be by not taking up an active roster spot.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logistics“The Storm made the decision independently to suspend her because of the injury,” Tatum told the AP at the New York Liberty game Friday night. “After they made the decision, we at the league office said ‘What a great opportunity to have the reigning MVP promote the league’. I spoke with Lindsay and then got on the phone with the team after they made the decision. What Stewie wants to do is help us grow and promote the league. It’s a great thing for the WNBA.”Colas was happy that the league was willing to think outside of the box. US faces greater challenges this time around at World Cup “The league delivered on the idea that they need to invest in their stars and be collaborative with the players. They understand Stewie’s value to the business,” Colas said. “I applaud them being entrepreneurial. This is a good thing for everyone. We are excited to pilot what I hope will be a model for how stars can work with the league and its partners to engage fans and drive interest year round.”The Storm also lost Sue Bird indefinitely to a knee injury this week, meaning they would have started the season with only 10 healthy players. There is a clause in the current CBA that if a team gets below 10 healthy players, they can sign a replacement player until they get back above 10.The union, which was informed of the Stewart decision, is interested some kind of change, whether it’s in the form of an injured reserve list or a roster expansion.“We thought it was a great idea and encouraged the league to think of other players that would make great ambassadors,” said Terri Jackson, who is the executive director of the WNBPA. “We wanted to see how it develops as the concept and plan rolls out. This league is represented by many great players.”It will definitely be a big topic of discussion around the CBA, which expires after this season because the players opted out at the end of 2018 season.ADVERTISEMENT Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting ‘Rebel attack’ no cause for concern-PNP, AFP Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles02:11’Not just basketball’: Circumcisions, pageants at Philippine courts02:03Russian envoy invites PH firms to explore for oil, gas in Russia02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss LATEST STORIES MOST READ DA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anewcenter_img Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Looking forward, we’d like to spark that type of change.”The league had an injury list from 1997-2005. Players had to sit out a minimum of three games from the date they were placed on the list. Then, the WNBA had a two-person inactive list from 2006-08 before rosters were reduced to 11 in 2009. Rosters are back up to 12 now.Chiney Ogwumike missed 2015 and 2017 because of two separate injuries. In 2015, she had microfracture surgery on her knee and the Connecticut Sun kept her on the roster all year, costing them a spot. Although Ogwumike couldn’t play, she was still the face of the franchise while making appearances.Two years later when she hurt her Achilles tendon, the Sun suspended her, freeing up the roster spot and not having to pay her.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next View commentslast_img read more
