EDMONTON — A woman in Alberta says she feels like she’s not Canadian enough after her daughters were denied citizenship.Victoria Maruyama was born in Hong Kong and, because her father was Canadian, has been a Canadian citizen since she was a baby. When she was a year old, the family moved to Edmonton where she grew up.At the age of 22, she went to Japan to teach English.“I met my kids’ dad,” Maruyama said in an interview with The Canadian Press. “The plan was just to teach English throughout Asia, move around from one country to the next, but he kind of scotched my plans.”She was seven months pregnant with their first daughter, Akari, in 2009 when Conservative government amendments to the citizenship laws took away her right to pass on citizenship to her children unless they were born in Canada.By that time, it was too late in her pregnancy to fly back to Canada. Her second daughter, Arisa, was also born in Japan.The girls are now seven and nine years old and, despite moving back to Edmonton almost two years ago, Maruyama is still fighting for them to become Canadian.“We had to struggle to get my kids in school. We had to fight to get them health care. They had no health care for months. Then they had it for six months and then they were stripped of it again,” she said.“It should be my right to come home with my children and for them to be educated and … have health care and vaccinations and all those basic things.”A January letter from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada notes Akari and Arisa were rejected because “they are not stateless, will not face special and unusual hardship if you are not granted Canadian citizenship and you have not provided services of exceptional value to Canada.”Officials with the federal department said in a statement that decision-makers determined that criteria for citizenship have not been met.“As part of the determination, the best interests of the child were considered,” they said in an email. “However, sufficient evidence was not provided to demonstrate that the children have been denied access to basic services in Canada.”Maruyama’s lawyer, Charles Gibson, has filed an application for a judicial review in Federal Court. He argues that the rejection is unlawful and that the Citizenship Act is discriminatory.“It creates two classes of Canadian citizens,” he says in court documents. “One class that can perpetually pass on or inherit Canadian citizenship and one that cannot. The Citizenship Act precludes the applicant’s mother from passing … on her Canadian citizenship to the applicant.“As a result, the applicant has suffered a great deal of hardship.”Don Chapman, an advocate for “lost” Canadians, said the law also goes against the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which Canada signed in 1990.“You have the right to live in the country with your parents. You have the right to an education. You have a right to medical. You have a right to seek legal guidance if the country won’t do this,” he said.Chapman said there are many expat Canadians who could find themselves in the same situation.“It’s a problem that’s going to explode.”When Justin Trudeau was citizenship and immigration critic, he promised in a March 2011 news release to change the “anachronistic” law.But Morgan said the Liberal government still hasn’t addressed the loophole for second-generation Canadians born abroad.“It means there’s only one group of Canadian citizens that have a litmus test to get their kids in,” he said. “If the kids had been abandoned, the kids would be Canadian. If you or me or any other Canadian adopts the children, they have a right of citizenship. If Vicki had been an immigrant Canadian and then naturalized, her kids would be Canadian.”He said the Maruyama family is caught in the middle of the 2009 legal changes.“There’s Trudeau going a Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian, and no, no and no,” said Chapman, who noted the Conservative Opposition has also been silent on the issue. “They all talk about refugees and immigrants, but no one is talking about this.”Maruyama said if they aren’t able to get citizenship, her girls could apply for permanent residence status as immigrants — a possibility confirmed by the federal Immigration Department.“They would have a higher level of citizenship than me because they (could) … pass on citizenship to their children,” she said. “But me living here 20-some years is not enough.“Not Canadian enough.”Colette Derworiz, The Canadian Press

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — Argentina’s Supreme Court has upheld the country’s glacier protection law, rejecting an effort by mining giant Barrick Gold Corp. to have it declared unconstitutional.Tuesday’s decision was praised by environmentalists and marked a setback for one of the world’s biggest gold miners.Barrick argued that the 2010 law could affect its projects near glacial areas in Argentina. But the top court said Barrick had not proved that the law curbing mining on and around the country’s glaciers caused any damage to the company.Barrick owns Pascua-Lama, a high-altitude mine that straddles the Argentina-Chile border. It also runs the Veladero mine in Argentina’s San Juan province.Representatives at Barrick could not immediately be reached for comment.The Associated Press
6 November 2007The United Nations agency tasked with promoting socially and environmentally sustainable housing has announced a partnership with a Canadian university to establish the world’s most complete online information archive on urban issues. The UN Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT) issued a statement yesterday saying that the University of British Columbia, which is based in Vancouver, had taken the initiative to host more than 30 years of print and electronic material. The UBC/UN-HABITAT Archive, which will be web-based, will contain material stretching from the UN agency’s first conference in 1976 up to and including the 2006 World Urban Forum III. Eventually it is expected to include more than 2,000 videos on urban issues accumulated by UN-HABITAT during the past three decades, as well as numerous books, magazines, pamphlets, websites and other materials. The online portal is aimed at giving governments, urban planners, developers, academics and others access to information – especially sustainable solutions – to various aspects of urban life, including housing, transport, infrastructure, resources management, land tenure, governance and climate change. UN-HABITAT Executive Director Anna Tibaijuka said the archive would serve as an invaluable resource for learning, teaching and practice on towns and cities. Professor Emeritus Peter Oberlander, the inaugural director of the university’s Centre for Human Settlements, said “these materials can show us how to improve the liveability and economic viability of the world’s communities… For example, a municipal clerk in Kumasi, Ghana, instructed to introduce water metering can now access the UN’s best practices on this subject to help ensure accessible and equitable water distribution.”
VANCOUVER — Mountain Equipment Co-op has decided to stop selling several outdoor equipment brands owned by Vista Outdoor Inc., which is also a gun manufacturer.MEC doesn’t sell guns, but had faced a petition calling on it to stop selling brands owned by Vista Outdoor because the U.S. company also develops and manufactures firearms similar to the type of rifle used in a recent Florida mass shooting.The retailer said Thursday its existing inventory of Bushnell, CamelBak, Camp Chef, Jimmy Styks and Bolle gear will remain on its shelves until it is sold, but it has suspended further orders of the brands owned by Visa Outdoor.Guns stocks slide as ‘fear trade’ loses its gripMEC chief executive David Labistour issued a statement saying he has heard the calls to boycott the brands, but also from members who believe that decision should be left to individual consumers.“I hope that you will see that the decision we made today is balanced and considered and positions us to inspire a wider discussion throughout our industry and North America,” Labistour said.He added he believes a member-owned organization like MEC needs to engage in the “complex and highly charged debate” surrounding the Feb. 14 shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla., that resulted in 17 deaths.The retailer will also “continue to engage with these brands as well our peers in the outdoor industry in North America in ways that are consistent with our mission and values,” he said.On Wednesday, Walmart and Dick’s Sporting Goods took steps to restrict gun sales. Dick’s said it will stop selling assault-style rifles and ban the sale of all guns to anyone under 21.Walmart said it will no longer sell firearms and ammunition to people younger than 21. A 19-year-old former student of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has been accused of using an AR-15 rifle, that he purchased legally, for the attack.
President Thein Sein announced on 2 January that he would commute death sentences to life imprisonment and reduce some sentences on humanitarian grounds and to mark the 66th anniversary of independence of the country, marked on 4 January.“We warmly welcome the Myanmar Government’s Presidential Order,” the spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Rupert Colville, told journalists in Geneva.The move is “very significant” for Myanmar, which has not carried out the death penalty since 1989, the spokesperson noted, as the country assumed the chair of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The step “sets a positive example for other ASEAN member states and other States in the region and beyond,” Mr. Colville said on behalf of the Office for the High Commissioners of Human Rights (OHCHR).
“The situation in Mali remains highly fragile,” said John Ging, Operations Director for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in a press release issued after a briefing for reporters at UN Headquarters in New York. “Although humanitarian assistance cannot provide the solution to this crisis, which goes back more than 50 years, it can provide a critical contribution by ensuring that human suffering is alleviated and people’s resilience is rebuilt, while the political process continues,” he added. Mr. Ging, who made the trip along with UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Emergency Director, Afshan Khan, and UN Population Fund (UNFPA) Emergency Director, Mabingue Ngom, travelled to the regions of Gao and Kidal where they met with representatives of armed groups, government officials, humanitarian partners and women’s groups. In Bamako, the country’s capital, they also met with the Prime Minister and Minister of Solidarity. Despite initial security improvements in 2013, the situation in Northern Mali has deteriorated since the beginning of this year. An increase in incidents involving improvised explosive devices, mostly targeting Malian and international security forces, has impeded the return to normalcy and resumption of economic and development activities.The first phase of the inter-Malian negotiation process, which was held from 16 to 24 July in Algiers, aimed at achieving a comprehensive peace agreement which would end the crisis. It concluded with the adoption of a roadmap by all parties.Announcement of the resumption of the talks comes in the wake of a series of deadly attacks against the UN Mission in the country, including a bomb attack and an ambush that killed nine Nigerien MINUSMA peacekeepers in Mali’s Gao region, bringing the total number of fatalities suffered by the mission to 31 peacekeepers killed and 91 wounded since it first deployed on 1 July 2013.In the press release, Mr. Ging pointed out that the 2014 humanitarian appeal for Mali was less than 50 per cent funded, directly impacting the UN’s presence on the ground and its ability to provide aid to those in need. “The UN Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) has had to halve its fleet, reducing access to remote locations at a critical moment in the response; roaming surgical teams have had to halt their activities; and we can’t deliver basic school supplies, like backpacks and books,” he continued. Meanwhile, UNICEF’s Afshan Khan underscored the need for restoring basic services across the country, noting that an estimated 500,000 children across Mali will suffer from Global Acute Malnutrition by the end of the year.“Despite the challenges, we must strengthen health systems especially in response to the nutrition crisis in Mali,” he said, adding that it was “also imperative to get schools back up and running.” “Some children in northern Mali have gone three years without education. This is unacceptable.”For his part, UNFPA Emergency Director, Mabingue Ngom, stated that the impact of the Malian crisis on women and importance of women’s involvement in the recovery remained a constant theme during the course of the visit. “Women in Gao had a simple message for us,” Mr. Ngom said. “They asked to have legal remedies for the horrendous violence and suffering they have endured, to be given the skills and means to earn their own livelihoods, and to be actively involved in peace talks and national reconciliation.”At the same time, as Mali addresses the confirmation of its first death from Ebola, the three officials urged all actors to take “immediate action” drawing on best practices from the region, including Nigeria, to rapidly contain the virus.
The rail operator said it had come from a “line side fire”Credit:Lauren Hurley/PA Passengers on a packed commuter train were forced to flee when they heard several “explosions” and saw a fire flare up alongside the carriage.The South Western Railway service was travelling between London Waterloo and Hampton Court at around 6.30pm when witnesses reported seeing sparks and smoke.It pulled into Berrylands station, south-west London, where commuters were told to leave the platform by emergency services.Dramatic pictures posted on social media show flames shooting up the side of the train’s front carriage.The rail operator said it had come from a “line side fire”, prompting cancellations and delays along the line. Media Consultant Graham Lovelace, 55, was travelling home to Hampton Court when he was caught up in the scare.He told the Press Association: “(The) train was busy, front carriages packed, passengers standing – including me.”Just after we left New Malden station there were loud bangs and bright white sparks.”I was in the front carriage where the electrical fault seemed to be located.”There was a strong smell of smoke and passengers shouted to open the windows.”Soon after there were more large sparks and more smoke. “As the train pulled into Berrylands station people left the train, but that was when the biggest explosions happened. Everyone got off the train and stood on the platform.” The South Western Railway service was travelling between London Waterloo and Hampton CourtCredit: Victoria Jones/PA Fire crews soon arrived on the scene and ordered everyone off the platform, he added.South Western said: “We are currently in contact with the train crew, and our specialist teams will be working hard to ascertain the problem and rectify it as soon as possible to get the line reopened.”The fire service are also on the scene to investigate the cause of the fire.”Initial reports suggested that a train had caught fire, this has now been confirmed not have been the case.”
After the fiasco against Atletico Madrid during last week’s Third Division match, Real Madrid has come up with a new plan to protect Vinicius Junior.Last week’s match between Real Madrid Castilla and Atletico Madrid B, was a clear red flag in regards to Brazilian winger Vinicius Junior. The Flamengo product needed to make a great impression on his second match with the academy because he failed to score any goals during the first match, pressure started mounting on him and this was the game in which he needed to make an appearance. The reaction to all the criticism from Vinny was quick, he gave an incredible performance in which he scored two amazing goals and led Real Madrid Castilla to a draw against the young Colchoneros. But there was also a very negative note about his match, it was clear that Vinicius awakened a lot of envy on all of his rivals and they Atletico players dedicated the whole match to provocations against the player and rough tackles. This is something that will become more repetitive on the Third Division for the Brazilian, which is something that manager Julen Lopetegui quickly realized after watching last week’s game.O atirador! Bob lee Swagger ?? pic.twitter.com/iKQ6h9bg6e— Vinicius Jr (@vini11Oficial) September 2, 2018This Wednesday there was an emergency meeting between the boss and Real Madrid Castilla’s coach, Santiago Solari. They spoke about the schedule of games in which Vinicius will feature for the academy, they reached an agreement in which the winger won’t travel to any game away from the Alfredo di Stefano Stadium in Valdebebas for his own protection. Solari completely understood this because Vinicius is a player who is well above the Third Division level, it is only a matter of time before Lopetegui takes him to the major squad on a full-time basis and the Argentine Castilla coach knows that having him in a few games for his squad is already a great luxury that will help his team win more matches. The Real Madrid staff quickly saw the danger that Vinicius would go through if he played in other Third Division stadiums because it’s not the same playing against other academies than against professional clubs that want to obtain promotion.Brinque com ela ⚽️ … pic.twitter.com/cDiaQnILoc— Vinicius Jr (@vini11Oficial) September 5, 2018Zidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.Vinicius as part of the Champions League squad.The Brazilian winger actually took the whole biting attempt from the Atletico Madrid player very lightly, he even accepted an apology after the game and both players hugged it out. The Flamengo product is cut from the same cloth as Neymar, he knows that fouls are something that will accompany him for the rest of his career because of the style of football he loves playing. These types of players usually get very obsessed with new flicks and tricks during practice that they can later produce in an official match, this creativity is always rewarded and that’s why manager Julen Lopetegui has already included Vinicius Junior amongst the players who form the roster for this year’s Champions League. This will obviously be the player’s first opportunity to compete in such a prestigious tournament, this is the stage for which players like him were made and he has been training his ass off for years in order to get an opportunity like this one.?? ¡El equipo trabaja en #RMCity sin los jugadores convocados por sus selecciones! | #HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/B5k4acO8w7— Real Madrid C.F. (@realmadrid) September 3, 2018During the international break, Vinicius Junior is already under Julen Lopetegui’s command and he will keep working hard this next two weeks with the hope of soon getting that first call-up for any La Liga match that will come after the national team matches this weekend. Protecting this €45 million player has suddenly become a top priority for Real Madrid, Lopetegui had his doubts about the kid but this last match against Atletico cleared all of them. There is no question that Vinicius will get his chance to shine this season, it’s up to him to cease the opportunity before management decides to send him on a loan to another club from Madrid where he can grow even more as a player. Sending him to another La Liga club is not actually a bad idea, this is something that is also being discussed for Vinicius’ most immediate future but a decision hasn’t been made yet on this subject. We’ll have to wait and see what happens this season.?¡IMAGEN EXCLUSIVA!? Vinicius y Tachi SE ABRAZARON tras el DERBI entre Real Madrid Castilla y Atleti B.

Joseph Reilly has been waiting for his victory shave for nearly 41/2 months.In that time, as the scruffy dark beard has grown across his face, he’s been in a coma, gone through countless surgeries and woken up to weeks of physical therapy.But the young man is a fighter, and his recovery has been nothing short of a miracle, his doctors said.“We have a trauma system called the ‘injury severity score,’ and it maxes out at 75,” said Dr. George Dulabon, his physician. “That was him. A 75. People at that level have a very minimal chance of survival. He beat all the odds.”Reilly, 21, suffered a brain contusion and crushed pelvis after being hit by a speeding car while walking to work at Smokey’s Hot Oven Pizza on Nov. 27. He’s been in hospitals or assisted living facilities ever since.The driver, Annastasia Morrison, 20, had a blood alcohol level of 0.26 percent, according to a report by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.She was killed in the crash.After weeks of hard work and the help of his mother, Terrina Vough, who has barely left his side, Reilly can now speak and stand up for a short period of time, and — most importantly — he can laugh.“I don’t see an opportunity to quit,” Reilly said, looking over at his mom. “You wouldn’t let me.”“I would never quit on you, Joey,” Vough said.“That’s ’cause you rock,” Reilly told her.“No, you rock,” she said, grins spreading across both their faces.Reilly went home to Winslow, Ariz., with his mother on Friday night. He still has a lot of physical therapy to go, but he has also come a long way in the past several months.
Federated Media has created a new online advertising format called Ad STAMP, which expands the amount of Web real estate for marketers while, the company says, enhancing the media experience for users.Ad STAMP is made up of three new ad units that Federated—which handles advertising for sites and blogs—executes on what it calls a “takeover” basis, meaning that when a STAMP ad runs on a publisher’s Web site, that particular marketer will take up all the ad space on the site using all three units concurrently. “It’s a complicated execution that requires some shifting of already-scheduled ad impressions, but this is a common situation with premium display advertising that will always displace ad network inventory,” said Matthew DiPietro, Federated’s marketing and communications director. “We know how to navigate this.”Designed in-house, the new ad units include the “Pushdown,” which expands to 970×418 then collapses to 970×66; the “Tower,” a 300×600 unit in the side bar; and the “Conversationalist,” a 600×250 unit that Federated says allows advertisers to engage readers directly within the ad unit through social media tools including corporate and product blogs, Twitter, Facebook, RSS and syndicated content. “The Conversationalist is simultaneously a brand advertisement, a content distribution tool and a social media engagement mechanism,” DiPietro said. “It’s all wrapped up in a clean ad unit that sits within the editorial well of the site.”The ads are customizable, DiPietro said, and Federated will “work with the brand, the buying agency and the creative agency, depending on the needs and capabilities of the marketer.”According to Federated vice president James Gross, by eliminating the noise of several types of ad designs on a site the Ad STAMP provides a “clutter-free environment for the reader, allows a marketer to present its message in a more impactful way and it offers the publisher increased revenue opportunities. We’ve already seen some very encouraging demand in the marketplace, and I think the available features and functionality fill a need that we’ve consistently heard from our marketing partners.”For now, the Ad STAMP units are available only to Federated publishing members in the Home and Tech categories, DiPietro said. He declined to offer specifics of the pricing model but said it costs “many multiples of the average banner CPM.”“We like to think that this [format] will encourage other publishers to take another look at their brand advertising products,” said DiPietro. “Crucial to the future of digital media is the ability to attract brand budgets rather than just direct response budgets, which is what the Web too often relies on.”
