Hundreds queue in Quebec to be among first buyers of legal cannabisHundreds queue in Quebec to be among first buyers of legal cannabis

first_imgMONTREAL – Marijuana smoke wafted through the heart of Montreal’s downtown shopping district Wednesday as hundreds of people lined up to purchase legal cannabis for the first time at Quebec’s state-run shops.Hugo Senecal, 39, emerged to cheers as he brandished a brown paper bag containing three different strains and a couple of pre-rolled joints, one of which he immediately lit up on the street.He and his friend Corey Stone arrived at 3:45 a.m. and waited over six hours to become the first customers allowed into the discreet beige and green storefront on Montreal’s Ste-Catherine Street when the doors opened at 10 a.m.“It’s actually the end of prohibition,” said Stone, 32.“There’s no police officer around. Everyone is leaving us alone.”Senecal said the staff was courteous and the price — about $136 for 20 grams — was slightly lower than what he would pay elsewhere.He said he would not necessarily switch over from the medical provider he already uses, but he had wanted to be part of a “historic” moment.“Worth the wait,” he said as smoke swirled around his head.Sarah Cantin and Ahmed Bakr rolled in on bicycles, waving a red-and-white cannabis leaf flag that had been signed by several of their friends from as far away as Egypt, Dubai, and San Francisco.After living overseas in countries where people are still jailed for smoking marijuana, Cantin said Wednesday was a shining moment for Canada.“I’m proud of my government,” she said. “To come back to live in a place where they look to the future and don’t just see the negative parts (of cannabis smoking.)”The downtown Montreal store was one of 12 that opened across the province on Wednesday, according to the subsidiary of the provincial liquor corporation that has exclusive rights over sales.An online store was also up and running. Spokespeople for the cannabis corporation were not granting interviews Wednesday. They said a report on first-day sales would not be available until Thursday.Large crowds were visible outside stores across the province.In Quebec City, about 100 people braved the wind and the rain to check out the government’s supply.“When you’ve been buying in secret for 50 years, and now it’s legal, it’s a big change,” 66-year-old Andre St-Gelais said.On Montreal’s St-Hubert Street, the customers who emerged from another of the city’s cannabis stores expressed satisfaction with the service and prices.“The employees seem well trained and you can see they know what they’re talking about,” said Olivier Ferro, who bought an assortment of dried cannabis flowers, capsules and pre-rolled joints.The upbeat celebrations outside the stores took place against the backdrop of cannabis laws that are among the strictest in the country.Sales in Quebec are restricted to government-run stores, and private cultivation is not allowed, in contrast to many other provinces.Many cities have chosen to ban smoking in all public places, and Quebec’s newly elected government has promised to raise the smoking age to 21 from 18.Stone expressed hope that legalization would eventually dissipate the “huge stigma” that still surrounds cannabis smoking.“You can see it in the people walking by,” he said outside the downtown Montreal outlet. “Some are smiling, but some are shaking their heads.”The provincial cannabis corporation said it would be offering some 110 products — from containers of pre-rolled Tsunami brand joints to small vials of cannabis oil.In a set-up closer to a pharmacy than a wine boutique, customers were asked to show their IDs before being led out of public view to select from the products kept behind a counter.Quebec’s major labour unions, meanwhile, were battling it out in an effort to unionize cannabis employees on their first day on the job Wednesday.Three unions had representatives on site at the Quebec stores, seeking signatures for union drives.One union — the Quebec Federation of Labour-affiliated United Food and Commercial Workers Union — announced that stores in Montreal and Rimouski had already signed on with it to unionize.The Canadian Union of Public Employees — also affiliated with the QFL — and the Confederation of National Trade Unions were also angling to sign up employees, who earn a starting wage of about $14 an hour.Provincial and Montreal police Wednesday afternoon reported no problems, on the roads or elsewhere, related to the first day of legal cannabis sales.— With files from Sidhartha Banerjee, Stephanie Marin and Caroline Plantelast_img read more

Argentine named head of Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical WeaponsArgentine named head of Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons

Rogelio Pfirter, a lawyer and career diplomat who served most recently as Argentina’s Under-Secretary for Foreign Policy, was named the new Director-General of the Organization for the Prohibition for Chemical Weapons (OPCW) on Thursday. He thanked delegates for their unanimous support and said the OPCW “serves as a model for the global disarmament of weapons of mass destruction.”Mr. Pfirter replaces José Bustani, whose term as Director-General was cut short in April by a vote in a special session of the States Parties. The incoming OPCW chief, who will serve a four-year term, pledged to put the Organization “firmly back on its feet” following what he termed “one of the most complicated periods in its brief history.””This is time for healing,” he told the OPCW staff. “Time for regrouping.”Looking to the tasks ahead, Mr. Pfirter emphasized the need for collective wisdom, joint action and consensus decision-making in tackling global problems. “The task of ridding the world of chemical weapons and ensuring that these do not threaten human lives again demands no less than the participation of all member States,” he said.The new Director-General pledged to be guided by the principles of transparency and even-handedness. “For me confidence requires that implementation of the Convention be carried out in a balanced and non-discriminatory manner,” he stressed. He also pledged to secure the necessary financial resources for OPCW to carry out its mandate.Stressing that chemical weapons arsenals and former chemical weapon production facilities must be destroyed as soon as possible, he noted that “there is still a way to go before the Convention becomes truly universal.”The OPCW aims to achieve a number of key objectives, including the elimination of chemical weapons and the capacity to develop them as well as the verification of non-proliferation, international assistance and protection in the event of the use or threat of use of those deadly arms. read more

UN General Assembly celebrates 20 years of promoting a culture of peaceUN General Assembly celebrates 20 years of promoting a culture of peace

Ms. Espinosa was speaking at a high-level forum to mark the 20th anniversary of the General Assembly’s adoption of a Declaration and Programme of Action on a Culture of Peace.“Because peace is more than the absence of war, it needs constant nurturing through the pursuit of dignity and equality, of human rights and justice, of respect and understanding, and of cooperation and multilateralism”, she said.As UN Chef de Cabinet Maria Luiza Ribeiro Viotti pointed out, although peace is at the heart of the work of the United Nations, it is something that must be addressed daily.“A culture of peace is inseparable from human rights, respect for diversity, and fairer societies,” she said.“One main challenge as we strive to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals is to build more preventive and inclusive approaches that ensure the participation of women, young people and vulnerable, marginalized and non-represented groups.”The Chef de Cabinet said working to achieve peace not only covers traditional notions of security but also challenges such as social injustice, the normalization of hate speech, terrorism, violence against women, and conflict.Leymah Gbowee from Liberia knows many of these issues first-hand. She won the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize for her role in uniting Christian and Muslim women to help end her country’s 14-year civil war.She said peace is seen as the absence of bad, rather than the presence of good. However, instead of being “a fairytale of bland happiness”, she views it as quite radical.“If we dig a little deeper into what a culture of peace actually looks like, it pushes us beyond understanding peace as the absence of conflict and being a positive state itself”, Ms. Gbowee told the gathering.“A culture of peace creates an environment where people thrive and have their needs met. It looks like a population of satisfied people: healthy children, educated children, a functional health system, responsive justice structure, an empowered, recognized, appreciated and fully compensated community of women; food on the table of every home, and a lot more. It is the full expression of human dignity.”The high-level commemorative event marked Ms. Espinosa’s final session presiding over the General Assembly, where all 193 Member States have equal representation.In her goal to bring the UN’s main deliberative and policy-making organ closer to everyday people, she chose the traditional ruler of the Ashanti people of Ghana to deliver the keynote address: a historic first.Representing a kingdom that has existed since the 17th century, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II ascended the podium wearing kente cloth and accompanied by two praise-singers.He highlighted some of the UN’s accomplishments in preserving global security: for example, staving off nuclear war and preventing conflict between nations. However, as he observed, the landscape today is different.“Warfare is no longer the threat we face from states; it is now a danger we face on a daily basis from our citizens and from all quarters. This new threat comes on the heels of an unprecedented trust deficit in political leadership at the national level. The effect of this trust deficit is to erode the capacity of political leaders to rally their people to coalesce around national interests. The consequence for peace and security cannot be overstated”, he said.The Ashanti leader called for a new partnership between elected authorities and traditional governance, in the spirit of authentic collaboration. read more

Garages urged to sign up to the service and repair codeGarages urged to sign up to the service and repair code

Any garage wishing to subscribe to the new Motor Industry Code of Practice for Service and Repair, recently launched by Motor Codes Limited, can do so right now via the user-friendly website When businesses sign up, they will gain access to the dedicated subscriber area of the code web site, which gives users all the information they need to prepare for when it is fully launched to consumers. By taking these early steps, customers coming through the doors of an outlet subscribing to the code will be able to recognise that they are in the hands of a responsible business which will commit to:honest and fair servicesopen and transparent pricingcomplete work as agreed invoices that match quoted pricescompetent and conscientious staffa straightforward and swift complaints procedure The code aims to promote and safeguard the interests of consumers by helping them identify subscribing garages and providing an easily accessible and robust dispute resolution mechanism when required. The code itself will:provide a free consumer advice lineprovide free conciliation and low cost, legally binding arbitrationoffer consumers more rights than required by law “We are extremely pleased with the commitment made by thousands of garages so far and have been able to help many of them get things in place prior to the full launch later this summer,” said Chris Mason, Motor Codes Director. “By logging on and subscribing now, individual garages will benefit by having time to familiarise themselves fully with the code workings and also add to the considerable support of this industry-wide initiative.” To allow businesses plenty of time to prepare for the consumer launch planned for August, the straightforward on-line process describes the code and enables garages to subscribe easily and instantly. Over 5,500 garages had already signalled their intent to subscribe when the code was launched to the trade at the Office of Fair Trading last month and now that the web-based system is live, many more will be encouraged to sign up. To supplement awareness, a series of advertisements is scheduled to run in selected trade titles and other industry publications throughout the summer. This will help promote the code identity and also demonstrate the commitment behind this important initiative.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

These documents were handed over to the court.Gooding related that the statements are in favour of Armila Glasgow who is responsible for the tendering of documents on behalf of the United States.The court also heard that Simeon Reid and Eon Alanzo, two senior members of the Guyana Police Force gave statements regarding the case.Thomas is represented by Nigel Hughes, Bernard De Silva and Darren Wade.Hughes asked that the court provide a printed document in relation to the extraditing treaty and the methodology that will be used.The matter was adjourned to March 22 to begin the extradition proceedings and March 23 for additional statements on the matter.Thomas was recently arrested in Guyana by ranks of the Guyana Police Force.He was being hunted by the New York Police Department, and a wanted bulletin was issued for him in connection with the murder of 20-year-old Frank after an altercation outside of a South Richmond Hill party.It was then disclosed by US law enforcement agents that Thomas had fled the country to Canada within hours of his alleged crime.Shortly after, the man reportedly traveled to Guyana before the wanted bulletin which was issued by the US had reached Interpol. read more

first_imgTHE ELECTRICITY OR gas supply in over 1500 properties was cut off in April this year, the latest figures reveal.However, ‘anecdotal evidence’ from suppliers suggest that a significant number of these were vacant properties.At the beginning of March this year, both ESB and Bord Gáis Networks altered the way vacant sites are identified during the disconnection process by the network technician that visits the site.Previously, between 36% and 40% of sites disconnected where deemed to be vacant.The Commission for Energy Regulation outlines that 805 properties had their domestic electricity supply disconnected, with Electric Ireland customers making up more than half of these. Source: CERJust over 730 saw their gas supply cut off, with the vast majority of these (81%) being Bord Gáis Energy customers.

first_img 11,977 Views Image: Oireachtas TV 21 Comments Feb 19th 2019, 9:22 PM Tuesday 19 Feb 2019, 9:21 PM The question is how does the ODCE interact with the courts, and with the Director of Public Prosecutions. I cannot, and the government cannot, express confidence in this office.The ODCE’s Drennan was addressing the Oireachtas Business Committee on proposals from the government to establish the ODCE as a stand-alone agency, in order to strengthen the regulatory framework with which Ireland can tackle white-collar crime. He said today that the failures made his office in relation to the Fitzpatrick trial were “fully acknowledged” and that “valuable lessons” had been learned, adding that the blame for the trial’s collapse did not lie solely with the ODCE.He also said that the scale of the wider probe into Anglo was “completely unprecedented”, and the ODCE wasn’t equipped to deal with it.Nevertheless, Drennan also defended the ODCE’s conduct and said that four out of five of its Anglo probes resulted in convictions. “Hindsight is 20/20,” he said. “Five separate strands of investigation, and each on their own was enormous… things go wrong and unfortunately in this case things went wrong in a catastrophic way. Things went wrong.” Image: Oireachtas TVcenter_img Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article ‘Wheels came off’: Head of State corporate watchdog says lessons learned after failures in Anglo trial Ian Drennan was addressing the Oireachtas Business committee this evening. THE HEAD OF the State’s corporate watchdog has told an Oireachtas Committee “the wheels came off” of his office’s probe into former Anglo Irish Bank chairman Sean Fitzpatrick.Ian Drennan said today that its investigation into Fitzpatrick and the loans at the bank “went wrong in a catastrophic way”.In May 2017, the judge in the trial of the former Anglo chairman had said that he would be directing the jury to acquit Fitzpatrick due to “alarming flaws in the prosecution”.Fitzpatrick had been on trial accused of a number of offences and the trial had been ongoing for 126 days before it was struck out of court, and he was acquitted on all charges.Among these flaws identified by Judge John Aylmer were the coaching of witnesses and the cross-contamination between witness statements. The flaws were such that he felt FitzPatrick would be denied his right a fair trial.The Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement (ODCE) carried out the investigation into FitzPatrick and Judge Aylmer was critical of its conduct.In the wake of the trial, Minister Simon Harris said the government couldn’t express confidence in the ODCE.Harris acknowledged the role of the state in the collapsed trial, but said that as far as he knew, the ODCE had told the government that they had adequate resources.

first_imgRelated posts:Vatican expels Costa Rican priest from Catholic Church for alleged abuses Costa Rican priest arrested for alleged sexual abuse of a minor Priest accused of sexual abuse arrested trying to leave Costa Rica Archbishop minimizes fall in reputation of the Church, predicts ‘high participation’ during Holy Week Costa Rica’s congress approved on Tuesday a bill that extends the statute of limitations for the crime of sexual abuse of minors.The initiative, known as Derecho al Tiempo (“Right to Time”), increases the statute of limitations for sexual offenses against minors from the current 10 years to 25, starting from when the victim reaches adulthood (at 18).“It is a time that will allow for the doors of justice to be open when those victims are prepared, overcome the traumas, reconstruct the facts, and touch the door of justice,” said deputy government official Enrique Sanchez, project promoter.The legislator supported the initiative prepared by Michael Rodriguez and Anthony Venegas, who denounced a Catholic priest for allegedly having sexually abused them when they were teenagers. However, both accusations were filed after the expiration of the 10-year statute of limitations.The initiative was approved in only two months, a very short time for the Legislative Assembly of Costa Rica.According to Sanchez, that suggests that many of the deputies believe the victims.“That we are on their side and that we are doing what is necessary to guarantee them effective access to justice,” he said.Rodríguez and Venegas denounced for alleged sexual abuse the priest Mauricio Víquez, who was recently disbarred by the Vatican after accumulating at least nine accusations against him.The priest left Costa Rica in January and is currently facing an international arrest warrant from Interpol.Víquez left Costa Rica after a complaint for which the statute of limitations has not expired, since the alleged victim has not turned 28 years of age and therefore was still within 10 years to appear before the courts.

STUBA in the city that never sleepsSTUBA in the city that never sleeps

first_imgIts good reason that New York City (generally considered to be just Manhattan although not correct) is one of the top destinations world wide.Film and TV have immortalised it as the aspirational pinnacle of cities, and one that seems more fictional that actually real. Quite often cities never quite live up to the hype, but in the case of Manhattan; the hype doesn’t live up to the city.The borough of Manhattan (NYC is made up of the 5 boroughs; Manhattan, The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island) were rediscovered in 1609, when Henry Hudson lead the Dutch expedition to what would later become New York Harbour. Manhattan Island was then purchased from the Canarsie Indians for 60 Guilders, or AUD$31.A lot of cash at the time, but in hindsight, its clear one group did better out of it that the other.The earliest photo of Manhattan is quite something, and gives no hints as to what the future may hold. You will still need a good hotel in the city that never sleeps… Believed the be the earliest photo of Manhattan: 1850.

Drinks In a Bank Vault: A converted bank vault, Trinity Place Vault Bar is modern lux at its best. Buried underground, the Swiss restaurant is the perfect spot for non claustrophobics.2. The secret location of Brazenhead Books: as the story goes, this location of this famous bookstore remains semi-secret to skirt around retail laws. At one stage it was in the owners own apartment, but has mysteriously moved location. Think of it as a speakeasy, but for books. By invitation only.3. Gary Marlon Susons 9/11 museum. When 9/11 occurred, this photographer was given carte blanche access to the site to visually preserve and document the site for future generations. Now set up as a museum, visitors can gain some understanding of the effect of 9/11 on the city and its people.4. Twilight Cinema. Spend the evening catching the best art-house ands blockbuster films with some of the most famous backdrops in the world. Hudson Riverflicks takes place on the banks of the Hudson every Weds.5. Visit the most haunted place in the USA: The Morris Jumel Mansion: creepy stuff occurred here. The lady of the house, Eliza Bowen Jumel, apparently had a tough life, and supposedly buried her husband…alive…Her second husband also mysteriously died a bit later on. The house also includes mannequins dressed up in period costume, creepy enough on a good day, but terrifying in this context. Source = STUBA STUBA in the city that never sleepslast_img read more

The truth of the matter is that only swans along a certain section of the Thames come under the protection of Her Majesty.

Sadly, Lord Sugar and his buddies are not likely to be leaping around, and even if they were, visitors are not permitted to enter the chamber whist the Lords are in session anyway.
