However, Federer wasted two game points in the second game of the second set. Goffin produced a forehand passing shot to take his first break point of the match.“It was a tough game to get broken at 1-0,” Federer said. “I had I think multiple game chances to get out of the game and go 1-1, keep the pressure up. Things really turned around for him at that moment.”The winners flowed from Goffin’s racket, unsettling Federer, who coughed up uncharacteristic errors.Goffin needed just the one break in both the second and third sets and displayed a previously unseen grit to deny Federer his lone break point opportunities in either set.It was testament to the remarkable season Federer has put together that his loss came as such a major surprise.ADVERTISEMENT Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 “It is the best win of my career, for sure,” said Goffin, who lost all six of his previous encounters against Federer.“I started to feel the ball better at the end of the first set, so I wanted to be more aggressive. It paid off. I started to serve well. My forehand was going much better.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutHis opponent on Sunday in the final will be Grigor Dimitrov after the Bulgarian defeated Jack Sock 4-6, 6-0, 6-3.With Federer having lost just four times during a season that saw him claim his 18th and 19th Grand Slam titles at the Australian Open and Wimbledon, it looked ominous for Goffin when the six-time champion broke twice on his way to winning the first set.

(AP Photo/Tim Ireland)LONDON — A set up against a man he’d never lost to, Roger Federer looked to be cruising toward a shot at a seventh ATP Finals title. David Goffin had other ideas.The Belgian rallied in the semifinals on Saturday to claim the biggest win of his career and stun the favorite 2-6, 6-3, 6-4.ADVERTISEMENT However, neither the loss to Goffin nor the fact he finishes the year second, behind Nadal in the rankings, will prevent him from being favorite for the Australian Open in January.“It’s been an amazing year for me,” Federer said. “Been so happy that I was playing at this level from the beginning till basically the end, till today.”The match was typical of Goffin’s inconsistent week on his full debut at the tournament, after he played one match as an alternate a year ago.After defeating a wounded Rafael Nadal in his opening match, he was thrashed in just 74 minutes by Dimitrov, and qualified for the semis with a comfortable win over Dominic Thiem.“Both are really special,” said Goffin, after becoming only the sixth man to defeat Nadal and Federer in the same tournament. “It was the first time against Rafa. Then the semifinal for the first time for me here, and to beat Roger for the first time here in such a big event, big tournament, it was the perfect moment.”Dimitrov ensured he’ll end the year at a career-high No. 3 after coming from behind to defeat Sock.Having won his previous two matches for the loss of just four games, Dimitrov’s title credentials were given a far more rigorous examination by the American.Dimitrov is the first debutant to reach the final since David Ferrer in 2007.Goffin will be the underdog again after winning just two games against Dimitrov on Wednesday.“It will be something different hopefully,” said Goffin, who can move to a career-high No. 5 if he claims the title. “I hope to play the tennis I played today. I’ll try to be more aggressive, also go for the shot, and yeah, go for the trophy.” 3-time Olympic champion ‘Pocket Hercules’ dies at 50 CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S.

In any case, I am really grateful to those who believed in me at Inter.”It went how it went, but it was a honour and a real pleasure to get to know a country and a championship as evocative as Italy and the Serie A closely.”Indeed, so much was that positive impression that Montoya won’t rule out anything in the future regarding a second shot at Serie A football. He added: “In football, you know, anything is possible. I’d go back to playing in Italy.”However, for now, the defender insists he’s happy on the south coast of England. Montoya was again in the starting line-up for the Seagulls’ thumping win over Tottenham on Saturday. And on Brighton, Montoya added: “I’m happy. The Premier is another great championship, very balanced and competitive. The goal for this season is to continue to enjoy this experience to the fullest, just as I have done since my arrival here last year.”- updated October 7

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A motion was carried at Monday’s Council meeting authorizing City staff to file Bylaw Contravention Notices on five properties on 109A Street in the Sunset Ridge neighbourhood of Fort St. John.The notices have been put onto the titles of the properties, which are all located in the same block of 109A Street between 105th and 108th Avenues, under Section 57 of the Community Charter.The notices were issued to the following five properties: Jackson added in her report that to date, no applications have been received nor have the owners contacted the City with regard to the bylaw contraventions.This is the second instance of the City issuing notices on property titles for secondary suite bylaw contraventions.In July, notices were issued against six properties in three duplexes located on 77th Street, 101st Avenue, and 104A Avenue.The City’s Planning Manager Renee Jamurat said then that the Bylaw Contravention Notice on the properties’ titles mean that the current and future owners of the properties will be made aware of the issues. 10611 109A Street; PID Number 029-142-27010612 109A Street; PID Number 029-142-42310615 109A Street; PID Number 029-142-28810703 109A Street; PID Number 029-142-29610708 109A Street; PID Number 029-142-393.

Photo by Chris Newton A building permit was issued for one of the five single-family detached homes in November 2013, while the other four were all approved on November 19, 2014.Final inspections of the five homes were conducted between May 22, 2014, and November 16, 2015, with occupancy being granted to each home on the same day as their inspections.In her report, Planner Charlene Jackson said that complaints were filed with the City on April 26th, April 30th, May 4th and May 8th of this year against the five properties.Jackson said that in each case, the City requested to schedule a secondary suite inspection via a registered letter sent on June 19th, with a deadline to contact the City to schedule an inspection of July 22nd.On July 27th, a second notice was sent informing the Owner that, under Section 57 of the Community Charter, the Building Inspectors were recommending that a notice be registered on the title.

C-69 imposes more requirements for consulting affected Indigenous communities, widens public participation in the review process and requires climate change to be considered when major national resource-exploitation and transportation projects are being evaluated. It applies to a wide range of projects including interprovincial pipelines, highways, mines and power links.C-69 was set for its final dance in the upper chamber late Thursday evening. The Senate made more than 200 amendments to that bill earlier this month but the government accepted only 99 of them, mostly to do with reducing ministerial discretion to intervene in the review process.The unelected Senate has generally bowed to the will of the elected House of Commons when there is a dispute between the two parliamentary chambers about legislation.The bills, both expected to be fodder for Liberals and Conservatives on the campaign trail to this fall’s election, were on a long list of legislation the Senate pounded through as it prepared to rise for the summer.The House of Commons called it quits earlier Thursday. The House closed after MPs delivered condolence speeches following the death of Conservative MP Mark Warawa, forgoing the rest of the day’s planned activities out of respect for the veteran MP who died of cancer.Bill C-48 imposes a moratorium on oil tankers north of Vancouver Island, but after the government accepted an amendment from the Senate, it will now undergo a mandatory review in five years. OTTAWA, O.N. – Legislation barring oil tankers from loading at ports on the northern coast of British Columbia slipped over its final hurdle in the Senate Thursday, despite last-minute attempts by Conservative senators to convince their colleagues to kill it.Bill C-48 is one of two government bills Conservatives in both the House of Commons and the Senate say are kneecapping Alberta’s oil industry by limiting the movement of its oil. It passed the Senate by a vote of 49 to 46.The tanker ban and Bill C-69, an overhaul of federal environmental assessments of major construction projects, have together become a flashpoint between the Liberals and Conservatives over how Canada can protect the environment without driving investment away from the fossil-fuel sector. The Senate committee that reviewed the bill recommended in May the entire Senate vote down the bill in its entirety, but that didn’t happen, leading Conservatives to accuse the Independent senators who make up a majority in the chamber of being Liberals in disguise.Conservative Sen. Michael MacDonald was one of a few from his caucus to make final pleas with his colleagues to not proceed with the bill.He said it “will be devastating for the Alberta and Saskatchewan economies.”However several Independent senators rose to speak in favour of the bill, including Yukon Independent Sen. Pat Duncan. “I believe we should be doing it,” said Duncan.Ontario Sen. Donna Dasko, who was on the committee that studied the bill in the Senate, said she thinks “it is quite a good bill.”“This bill does not actually ban tankers from the Hecate Strait; it simply landlocks Alberta and Saskatchewan oil, and destroys the possibility of economic development in northern Indigenous communities,” said Conservative Sen. Dennis Patterson, a former premier of the Northwest Territories, after the Senate passed it.
Lucknow: Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday asked the BJP whether it was pursuing a “jhoot and boot” campaign, a day after the party was embarrassed by its two legislators who attacked each other during a meeting, with one of them using his shoe.By “jhoot” (lies), Yadav appeared to be referring to the multi-crore Rafale aircraft deal, which the Opposition has alleged involved corruption. His comments came a day after the BJP-led government at the Centre told the Supreme Court that documents related to the agreement had been “stolen” from the Defence Ministry. Also Read – How a psychopath killer hid behind the mask of a devout laity!”First there were parallel negotiations. Then the (Rafale) files were stolen. Meanwhile in Uttar Pradesh, MP-MLA used shoes for dispute resolution at a meeting to discuss development. Now BJP workers are asking their leaders as to what campaign is on? The ‘jhoot’ and the ‘boot’ or the youth and the booth?” Yadav said in Lucknow. His “boot” dig was aimed at the fracas in Sant Kabir Nagar, where two elected representatives of the BJP hit each other during a meeting in presence of minister of in-charge of the district, Ashutosh Tandon, son of Bihar Governor Lalji Tandon. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killedOne of the legislators involved in the fight, caught on tape, used his shoe to hit the other. On Thursday, Yadav’s ally in Uttar Pradesh for the general election, BSP chief Mayawati, too had a dig at the Centre’s disclosure about “stolen” Rafale jet deal documents. Mayawati said in a tweet it was a “very strange and irresponsible chowkidari” that the documents were “stolen”. “The Modi govt made a sensational disclosure in the Hon’ble Supreme Court that secret documents pertaining to Rafale fighter deal were stolen from the Defence Ministry.” ‘Very strange & irresponsible chowkidari. Is national security & interest in the safe hands? Think long & loud,” she tweeted. Later in a statement, she said it was “most irresponsible, most unfortunate and shameful” that Rafale deal-related documents were stolen from the ministry. She asked the Modi government to apologise for failing on the matter of national security. “Before making the stunning revelations (about documents being stolen) in the Supreme Court, the Narendra Modi government ought to have apologised to the nation for failing on the matter of national security,” the BSP chief said in the statement. She said the Supreme Court should now get the entire matter probed under its supervision to satisfy the country.
Mumbai: Star Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya believes his time away from the game, albeit owing to suspension handed over to him for his comments on a chat show, is helping him as he is in a good space right now. Pandya was handed over a brief suspension for the comments he made on Koffee With Karan last year. However, the Mumbai all-rounder has made a strong comeback and has been performing with both bat and ball in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League. On Monday, he yet again showcased his power-hitting ability as his late cameo of 37 runs off 16 deliveries helped Mumbai Indians defeat Royal Challengers Bangalore by five wickets in their IPL encounter at the Wankhede. Speaking in the post-match presser, Pandya was asked about learning lessons from the enforced break to which he replied: “Nothing, it was okay. Everyone has a setback and I got to improve.” “It gave some time for my body and game. And the time I was out is helping me right now. I am in a good space and everything is coming together right,” he added. MI needed 22 runs from the last two overs, when RCB captain Virat Kohli handed the ball to Pawan Negi; Pandya was beaten first ball, but he then collected two sixes and two fours off the next four balls to settle the matter. The 25-year-old further played down his ability to hit the boundaries under pressure and winning games for his side. “I have been doing this for the past four years now. That’s my role for any team that I play for. I practice the same thing in nets. It’s all about handling situations and if you are smart enough then more often, you will get the result that you desire,” he said. Pandya, who has been included in the 15-member Indian squad for the forthcoming World Cup, believes it is important for him to keep hitting the ball and have the confidence going into the prestigious quadrennial event. “It’s always important to have the confidence because world cup is a big stage and it will be for the first time that I will be playing in it. I was out of the game for some time and it was important to keep hitting,” said Pandya. He also insisted he doesn’t want to experiment much and wants to stick to his basics, follow his instincts. “Cricket is the same whether it’s the World Cup or IPL. I have always followed my basics and that’s what has got success for me and I will keep backing myself that way,” he said.
