    Share A Luxembourg appeals court today cut the sentences of two ex-PwC workers for playing a part in leaking data from the firm which revealed the ins and outs of the tax tricks used by hundreds of companies.In a court ruling last June, Antoine Deltour was given a 12-month suspended sentence and a €1,500 (£1,305) fine and Raphael Halet was handed a nine-month suspended sentence and a €1,000 fine for their roles in the LuxLeaks data leak. whatsapp whatsapp Hayley Kirton Read more: Supreme Court sides with charities in battle against disinherited daughterAlthough Deltour’s and Halet’s sentences were cut, some campaigners view the fact that their convictions were upheld as a slap in the face for whistleblowing.”The information revealed in the LuxLeaks scandal should never have been secret in the first place,” said ActionAid head of advocacy, Charlie Matthews. “The EU and UK should make sure this never happens again by ensuring companies reveal how much tax they pay in every country where they operate.” Wednesday 15 March 2017 3:58 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May Likeanymuscle.com20 Signs That Your Kidneys Aren’t Working Properlyanymuscle.comMedicare TrendCelebrities’ Most Empowering Quotes About Being SingleMedicare TrendInfo-life.xyzThe Motorcycle Of The Future From The BMWInfo-life.xyzSpicy TrendsWayne Knight: This Is How The Famous Actor Looks After Weight LossSpicy TrendsRecetas Get7 Simple Ways To Naturally White Teeth At HomeRecetas GetMiaw StoreSome acts from your cat may be a sign for alarm.

  • Haines Assembly debates stance on Juneau Access Road

    first_imgJuneau | Southeast | State Government | TransportationHaines Assembly debates stance on Juneau Access RoadOctober 12, 2016 by Emily Files, KHNS-Haines Share:A sign near Juneau’s Auke Bay Ferry Terminal points to the end of Glacier Highway. (Photo by Ed Schoenfeld/CoastAlaska News)Ahead of Gov. Bill Walker’s visit to Haines this week, borough assembly members appear divided on one of the major issues bound to come up: the Juneau Access Road. Although in the past, the assembly has advocated for ferry reform over the road, the current assembly was divided on whether they should stick to that stance.Assembly member Margaret Friedenauer started the conversation at Tuesday’s meeting.“I just kind of wanted to make sure we were all on the same page with our position,” Friedenauer said.They weren’t on the same page.Friedenauer pointed to six previous assembly resolutions that express preference for an improved ferry system rather than Juneau Access.“Our position was what was in all these previous resolutions which is we support a solid ferry system over a road project at this time, especially in light of the state budget,” she said.Assembly members George Campbell and Diana Lapham weren’t fully on board with that stance.Campbell said he’s been against the road for years, but people have to recognize the Alaska Marine Highway ferries are “timing out.”“We need to be considering the ferry system infrastructure is going downhill very quickly,” Campbell said.Lapham said she wants to hear more from the community before declaring a position.“‘Haines doesn’t want the road’, there again, broad statements does not truly reflect what Haines wants,” Lapham said. “I know that there are a lot of people here that would like to see the road go through.”Both Lapham and Campbell are outgoing assembly members.This was their last full meeting.Campbell proposed the assembly approach Friday’s meeting with Walker with no position on the road. His motion failed to get a second. Friedenauer responded.“I know we all hear from different people in the community and I understand that,” she said. “And I am more than willing to listen on Friday. But the borough can absolutely –and this assembly should support records of decisions we’ve made, especially in the form of six resolutions. I’m sorry, I’m babbling because I’m shocked.”Assemblyman Ron Jackson wondered why the assembly was spending this amount of time on the topic when it already has a position.“We have a position and to say we don’t have one is like trying to do some things under the carpet and trying to hide them from the public and the governor,” Jackson said.He was backed up by Assemblyman Mike Case. He said if the assembly was going to consider changing its stance, that should’ve been advertised to the public.“We have to support the positions we’ve had in the past.” Case said.The meeting with Walker is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Friday at the Chilkat Center.Share this story:last_img read more

It is about righting wrongs,” she said. “It is about utilizing justice as a tool to advance us as a society and not just to delineate somebody being in the wrong or in the right.”The program was held in Juneau as part of the institute’s Alaska Native Civic Engagement Training, which will repeat April 6-7 in Fairbanks.Share this story:last_img read more

  • Pointing to low salmon forecasts, Trident Seafoods to keep Wrangell plant closed

    first_imgFisheries | SoutheastPointing to low salmon forecasts, Trident Seafoods to keep Wrangell plant closedMay 1, 2021 by Sage Smiley, KSTK – Wrangell Share:Trident’s Wrangell plant and Reliance Harbor(Photo by Sage Smiley/KSTK)One of Wrangell’s two fish processors will remain closed for the second year in a row. Seattle-based Trident Seafoods cites a dismal salmon forecast for its decision.Chum and pink salmon returns to Southeast Alaska over the last few years have crumpled, and the predictions for the coming season aren’t especially heartening.“It’s been a real disaster around here,” said Wrangell commercial fisherman Gig Decker. “I mean, my main income has been the dogs — the chum salmon — and the runs just haven’t been coming back. They don’t know if it’s because of the blob or warming or what it is, but the biologists don’t seem to have a lot of optimism about it.”Citing the poor returns, Trident’s fish processing plant stayed shuttered and silent last summer. And the royal blue plant in Reliance Harbor is going to stay closed for a second year.Trident Seafoods has confirmed that its Wrangell plant won’t be opening again this year.“We hope to see a return to higher abundance and opportunity to support running the facility in the future,” Trident spokesperson Stefanie Moreland wrote in a statement.Trident has had a presence in Wrangell since 2009 when it bought out the bankrupt Wrangell Seafoods company. The seafood giant operates about a dozen other plants throughout Alaska, including in Petersburg and Ketchikan.Southeast chum salmon returns for 2021 are projected to be some of the lowest in the last 25 years. Pink salmon look a bit rosier; they’re projected to swim back to Southeast this year in average numbers.Decker, the Wrangell fisherman, said he understands that Trident can’t justify the cost of operating a plant if the fish aren’t there, but it complicates the fishing season to have the Wrangell plant closed: “Of course, it was really convenient for me — not just that they bought my fish, but there was a lot of other services, like machining and moving gear and equipment. And so it — it’s been a real drag to not have a cannery open.”Wrangell’s other, smaller processing plant, Sea Level Seafoods, will operate this year although it’s getting started later than usual.Its Oregon-based parent company Pacific Seafood said in a statement that the Wrangell plant didn’t operate during March’s halibut opening because of complications of staffing the facility due to COVID-19. It pushed its opening date back until May 1.That’s left Wrangell fishermen like Alan Reeves feeling desperate after last year’s low halibut prices. The wholesale market was poor in 2020, with hotels and restaurants buying a lot less everything — including seafood.“I lost $40,000 on it last year, at least,” Reeves said. “It’s not something you play with when you’ve got that kind of investment. I mean, I’ve got family that go out with me and everything else, and they rely on it [as well].”Reeves spent about a decade on Wrangell’s port commission and he knows the importance of fisheries business taxes to the island’s local government. But he also said he couldn’t afford to wait for a Wrangell processor to come online. He had to go somewhere else to sell halibut.“The jobs and the tax went to another town this year,” he explained. “For the first time since 1981 commercial fishing. I’ve only sold one time out of town.”Last year’s fish tax payments haven’t been calculated yet, so it’s not clear what the financial impact of 2020’s poor returns and single operating plant will be.But the $80,000 drop between 2018 and 2019’s payments doesn’t bode well for the revenue Wrangell’s borough government expects to receive for last year’s lower fish returns.Wrangell officials said it’s difficult to determine the exact effects of a shuttered plant. There won’t be large-scale utility payments from the plant. Fish taxes paid out to the borough will probably be lower. And there’s also the simple lack of processing workers eating, living, and working in the community.Last year, Trident’s empty bunkhouses were rented out as isolation sites by the city government at the onset of the pandemic but were never used. The Alaska Crossings wilderness behavioral therapy program also housed out-of-town guides in Trident’s bunkhouses immediately after they arrived earlier this spring.Decker said he’s holding out hope that there might be a fishy hail mary this season, even though Wrangell’s Trident plant won’t be open.“I’ve seen things like this before,” Decker said. “I’ve had years where I did tremendously well after everyone thought it was going to be a disaster. So that’s fishing.”Sea Level Seafoods said they’re working on icing and baiting boats. They’re typically up and running through the end of October.Share this story:last_img read more

  • Court upholds OSC decision but differs on penalties

    first_img Share this article and your comments with peers on social media James Langton “In this case, the reasons are clear and intelligible,” the ruling adds. “There is no basis for interfering with the commission’s factual findings, or its ultimate conclusions on liability.” However, the court ruled in favour of Loman on the question of whether the sanctions the OSC imposed on him — which included a 10-year ban, a $75,000 administrative penalty, $145,250 in disgorgement and $30,000 in costs — were appropriate. In particular, the court found that the OSC improperly considered a previous trading ban that regulators in Alberta imposed on Loman as a factor in setting its penalty against him. “We find that the commission erred by misapprehending the facts relating to sanctions imposed on the appellant by the Alberta Securities Commission (ASC),” the court says. In 2009, Loman entered into a settlement agreement with the ASC that included a three-year ban, which the OSC cited as one of the factors that it considered in imposing its penalty on him. However, the Alberta sanctions were imposed on Loman after the unregistered trading the OSC is seeking to punish took place. Therefore it shouldn’t be considered a factor in determining the OSC’s penalty against him, the court notes. “The Alberta sanction could not have deterred the Majestic trades because it had not yet occurred. The commission’s reasons demonstrate that this misapprehension affected the sanctions imposed in relation to bans and the administrative penalty,” the ruling states. “We cannot be certain that the commission would have imposed the same sanctions had it properly apprehended the timing of the Alberta ban,” the court ruled, allowing the appeal on sanctions and sending that issue back to the OSC for a fresh decision. Facebook LinkedIn Twitter An Ontario court has upheld an Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) ruling that found a former mutual fund advisor traded without registration, but the court also ruled that the OSC erred in determining its sanctions against the advisor. Specifically, the Divisional Court of the Superior Court of Justice has upheld the OSC’s decision that Kevin Loman, a former mutual fund rep, violated securities laws by engaging in unregistered trading of shares in Majestic Supply Co. Based on the evidence before the OSC at its hearing into the allegations, “it was reasonable for it to conclude” that he traded in unregistered shares, states the court’s ruling, Loman v.

More than 22-thousand people find employment in sports, she added.Miss Grange reiterated that her Government was fully committed to sports development, in particular football, and she reminded those gathered that the Government was currently engaged in fashioning a Sports Policy.center_img Advertisements Government to Contribute $20M to Premier League Football UncategorizedMay 23, 2008last_img read more

  • Find Out How Canada Has Invested in Teacher Recruitment and Retention Across Country

    first_imgFind Out How Canada Has Invested in Teacher Recruitment and Retention Across Country From: Canadian HeritageThe Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages, outlines various initiatives aimed at addressing the teacher shortage in French-language minority schools as well as French immersion and French second-language programs across the country.Our two official languages, English and French, are both an asset and a source of pride for all Canadians. This is why we support and encourage their use, because bilingualism unites us and sets us apart from other places in the world.The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages, spoke about the importance of supporting projects that help recruit and retain teachers in Canada. The Minister made the remarks at a virtual event with the Fédération nationale des conseils scolaires francophones, the Canadian School Boards Association and the Association des collèges et universités de la francophonie canadienne. Since implementing the French-Language Minority School and French Immersion and French Second-Language Program Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy in 2019, Canada has already invested $46.5 million in initiatives to eliminate the teacher shortage across the country in these schools and programs.This announcement follows the February 19 release of English and French: Towards a Substantive Equality of Official Languages in Canada, which outlines the Government of Canada’s vision for official languages reform. The government’s priorities include encouraging the availability of learning opportunities in both official languages and support for institutions in official language minority communities. Supporting access to French-language education from early childhood in Francophone minority communities as well as French immersion and French second-language programs for the Anglophone majority are concrete ways of achieving these objectives.Our two official languages are a source of pride for Canadians. By supporting them like this, the Government of Canada is reaffirming its commitment to all Francophones and Francophiles, who choose to learn, live and speak in French every day. These programs are key to ensuring the vitality of French everywhere in Canada while allowing our children to grow and develop in a country that promotes both our official languages.The government is proud of its investments to date and aims to move forward by continuing to support provincial, territorial and organizations’ plans for minority-language education and second-language learning.Quotes“French is fragile, but alive and well across the country, due to the work of teachers, who play an essential role with young people. That’s why we believe it is so important to support these teachers. They are vital to protecting and promoting the French language. More than ever, the federal government aims to address the national teacher shortage. It is crucial to our collective commitment to build a bilingual Canada and guarantee the vitality of our minority official language communities.”– The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Economic Development and Official LanguagesQuick factsAccording to Statistics Canada’s 2016 Census, Francophone communities outside Quebec represent 3.8 percent of the population while the bilingualism rate of Anglophones outside Quebec is 6.8 percent. Projections for 2036 suggest the number of Francophones outside Quebec could drop to three percent while the national bilingualism rate may increase only among Francophones in Quebec.According to Statistics Canada, the number of students enrolled in immersion programs increased 47.8 percent from 2006-2007 to 2016-2017 while the number of students enrolled in Francophone minority schools increased 14.3 percent.As part of the Action Plan for Official Languages 2018-2023: Investing in our Future, the Government of Canada is investing $62.6 million over four years to support recruiting and retaining teachers in French-language minority schools as well as in French immersion and French second-language programs.The Action Plan for Official Languages calls for $2.7 billion to be invested over five years, including $500 million in new funding to support official language minority communities and promote bilingualism across the country.On February 19, Minister Joly presented the Government of Canada’s intentions for modernizing and strengthening the Official Languages Act and related instruments in a document entitled English and French: Towards a Substantive Equality of Official Languages in Canada. This document proposes a range of changes and new measures to establish a new linguistic balance in the country. /Public Release.

  • Court will hear Manitoba man’s case for banned ‘Star Trek’ licence plate

    first_img RELATED TAGSNewsManitoba A lawyer representing Manitoba says a Star Trek fan wasn’t allowed to keep his personalized “ASIMIL8” licence plate because the word cannot be dissociated from the history of forced assimilation of Indigenous people in the province.Manitoba Justice lawyer Charles Murray told court Monday that licence plates are owned and issued by Manitoba Public Insurance, and the insurer cannot be divorced from a historical context of “cultural genocide.”“Assimilate,” whether in the sense of a fictional alien race or the real history of Indigenous people in Canada, is “talking about wiping out the uniqueness of people,” Murray said. advertisement Trending Videos Should these custom licence plates have been banned? Justice Centre president John Carpay said in an interview from Calgary after the hearing that freedom of expression cannot be trumped by some “kind of legal right to not feel offended.”“When freedoms are lost, typically, they are lost gradually — bit by bit by bit,” he said. See More Videos Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2 A Manitoba licence plate reading ‘ASIMIL8’ was intended as a “Star Trek” reference but raised ire for being offensive to Indigenous cultures and Canada’s history of assimilating them.  Supplied / Canadian Press The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever A man in Nova Scotia is also to be in court this month over a personalized licence plate. Lorne Grabher has been trying to reinstate his “GRABHER” plate since it was revoked in 2016 by the Registrar of Motor Vehicles following an anonymous complaint. center_img The legal challenge against MPI was launched by Winnipeg’s Nick Troller over the Crown corporation’s decision to revoke his personalized plate in 2017.Troller is an avid fan of the Star Trek TV franchise and in 2015 got the plate with the well-known words from the show’s alien race, the Borg.He put the ASIMIL8 plate in a border that stated “We are the Borg” and “Resistance is futile.”James Kitchen, lawyer for the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, argued on behalf of Troller. Kitchen told court that Troller drove around for nearly two years with the plate on his vehicle without any complaints. In fact, Kitchen said, many people asked Troller for photos with the plate.“The word ‘assimilate’ is just a word,” the lawyer argued.That changed on April 22, 2017, when a woman from Ontario posted a photo of the plate on Facebook and complained to MPI that the plate was offensive because of the history of government assimilation policies.The judge reserved his decision.Documents filed in court show multiple emails between MPI officials trying to understand how the licence plate was approved in the first place.Plates are denied for a variety of reasons, including if they are offensive, suggestive, discriminatory or include racial or ethnic slang. They are the property of the Crown and can be recalled at any time.The ASIMIL8 plate was considered by a five-person committee. Internet searches were done on its meaning and it was issued without any concerns.Troller was later contacted and told his plate was deemed inappropriate and was being recalled.Kitchen argued the emails show it was a “knee-jerk reaction” to the complaint that violated his client’s charter right to freedom of expression.
