Cabinet to deliberate on teachers’ salary increase – Education Minister

first_img… says decision within a monthNegotiations that were done during a meeting with the high-level task force some time ago to determine whether or not teachers will be entitled to an increase in their salaries is now at the hands of Cabinet.This was according to Education Minister Nicolette Henry, who earlier this week informed media operatives that recommendations were made during the discussion and these were submitted to her for initial evaluation. However, the final resolution will be made after the matter is debated at the level of Cabinet.“The High-Level Task Force of Public Education met and they would’ve made some recommendations in so far as emoluments are related to teachers. That was one of the many issues that was discussed, and they would’ve submitted to me a document which I have reviewed and which I will have to discuss with my Cabinet colleagues as the subject Minister.She explained that other factors surrounding the increase were also raised and were therefore considered before the initial document was crafted.“Prior to that discussion of course, we had to look at the feasibility based on what was proposed and so there were several instances of back and forth with the High-Level Task Force. Cabinet, I suppose, will be able to make an announcement which many will be able to benefit from in a month’s time. ”She noted that while the increase in wages was an important aspect of the discussion, several other issues were highlighted, and recommendations were accordingly made. Again, it was recorded that a response will be made within the period of a month.“It’s much more than salary issues. Coming out of that process, there would be a number of recommendations that we would’ve found favour with and so we intend to move with that in the shortest possible time. Speaking in terms of relativeness, I will say we will see something in about a month’s time or thereabout.”Earlier in April, the High-Level Task Force was engaged in a meeting, whereby the factors affecting teachers were discussed, with the possibility of them receiving an increase in their monthly salaries. However, in May, it was revealed that the matter was within the remit of the Finance Ministry.The original proposal suggested by the Guyana Teachers’ Union (GTU) called for a 50 per cent increase for 2018 and the next two years.last_img read more

Horn River Basin gas estimates increase

first_imgA new joint report on the shale-gas potential of Northeastern B.C.’s Horn River Basin more than doubles a previous assessment of gas resources within the province.The report released Friday by the National Energy Board and British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines titled “Ultimate Potential for Unconventional Natural Gas in Northeastern British Columbia’s Horn River Basin” is the first publicly released probability-based resource assessment of a Canadian shale basin.The report says the ultimate potential for marketable unconventional shale gas in the Horn River Basin is 78 trillion cubic feet, including three Tcf of discovered resources and 75 Tcf of undiscovered resources.- Advertisement -“This innovative report on shale-gas resources provides Canadians with valuable information about our energy future, particularly as it relates to the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin,” said Gaetan Caron, chair of the National Energy Board.B.C. Energy and Mines Minister Rich Coleman said, “This report should provide residents of our province with a sense of optimism about the future. B.C. is recognized for its significant shale gas reservoirs as well as for having world-class regulations.”Placing the Horn River numbers in context, the NEB currently estimates that there is 197 Tcf of conventional and unconventional natural gas remaining in the WCSB — although this number does not take into account known but as-yet-unassessed unconventional gas resources.Advertisement The estimate of total remaining conventional and unconventional natural gas in Northeast B.C available for future demand is 109 Tcf. That includes 78 Tcf of shale gas as well as 31 Tcf of remaining natural gas resources identified in a joint assessment of conventional natural gas resources in Northeast B.C. The conventional gas assessment was released by the NEB and B.C. Ministry of Energy and Mines in 2006.According to the new report on unconventional gas resources, the medium-case estimate of 78 Tcf for Horn River shale gas is the most realistic scenario. However, the study produced a range of numbers for shale gas potential in the Horn River Basin with the low estimate being 61 Tcf and the high being 96 Tcf.last_img read more

Canadian pig farmer guilty of 6 murders
first_imgHealth officials once issued a tainted meat advisory to neighbors who might have bought pork from Pickton’s farm, concerned the meat might have contained human remains. Before the jury started its deliberation on Nov. 30, Judge James Williams reviewed the transcript of a videotape with them in which Pickton is heard telling an undercover police officer that he had planned to kill 50 women, take a break, then kill 25 more. Family members and friends gathered for a candlelight vigil outside the courthouse after the verdicts.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

He had been charged with first-degree murder in the six killings, but the jury convicted him on a lesser charge of second-degree murder, which means they did not believe the killings were planned. Two sisters of victim Georgina Papin screamed `No!’ when the jury foreman first got up and said “not guilty” on first-degree murder. But they later said they were pleased he was convicted on the second-degree charge. Two jurors, both women, wiped tears from their eyes while the verdicts were read. The jury foreman glared at Pickton as the verdicts were read back by a court official. A conviction for any murder in Canada carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison, and he will be sentenced on Tuesday when the judge will decide when Pickton might be eligible for parole. During his trial, prosecution witness Andrew Bellwood said Pickton told him how he strangled his victims and fed their remains to his pigs. NEW WESTMINSTER, British Columbia – A jury convicted a 58-year-old pig farmer Sunday of murdering six women, handing him an automatic life sentence but finding that the killings were not planned. Robert `Willie’ Pickton still faces 20 more murder charges for the deaths of women, most of them prostitutes and drug addicts from a seedy Vancouver neighborhood. If convicted on all those charges, he would become Canada’s most prolific serial killer. Police are still investigating the cases of almost 40 other missing women. The remains of the six women he was convicted of killing were found on Pickton’s farm, but he denied he was responsible for their deaths. last_img

first_imgIn life, if you generally play by the rules, people will cut you some slack. Take credit, for example: Pay your bills on time, and banks will lend you money at a low interest rate. Skip payments and default on your loans, and you’ll face usurious charges. But somehow this simple rule of life has been lost on the folks at the Boeing Co. To extend the metaphor, Boeing has bad credit. Thanks to the way Rocketdyne operated the Santa Susana Field Laboratory for decades before Boeing took over, the company has a poor track record of dealing with contamination caused by nuclear and rocket fuel research. And even now the firm is still racking up violations, 50 of them for water-quality problems in the past year alone. Boeing hasn’t established the kind of relationship with the community that earns it much slack. Yet that didn’t stop Boeing officials from asking the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board to weaken the pollution limits on storm water flowing off the hilltop lab. To which the board properly replied: Not a chance. Breaks come to those who have earned the public’s trust. Sixteen years after the Daily News disclosed there were serious contamination problems at the field lab ought to be enough time to win friends and clean up the mess.
