Metis want courts to overturn Manitoba decision on cancelled payment

first_imgWINNIPEG – The Manitoba Metis Federation plans to ask the courts to overturn a provincial government decision and uphold a tentative agreement that would see it get $67 million for supporting new energy projects.The federation said it’s assembling a legal team that will file for a judicial review of Premier Brian Pallister’s move last week to quash a deal that had been negotiated between the federation and Crown-owned Manitoba Hydro.“This is the position of one individual who has taken a position that he is the king,” Metis federation president David Chartrand said Wednesday. “There are no kings in this country, I’m sorry. We have a democracy in this country.”The planned legal action is the latest development stemming from the mass resignation of nine of 10 Manitoba Hydro board directors last week. The board members cited an inability to meet with Pallister to discuss issues such as Indigenous rights.Pallister fired back, saying the board members resigned because he had stopped the tentative agreement with the Metis.He called the $67 million “persuasion money” to a special interest group, and said it was wrong because it essentially paid the federation not to oppose a planned transmission line to Minnesota and a number of other projects for up to 50 years.The federation said Wednesday that while the deal with Manitoba Hydro was unsigned and had been taken to the government for approval, it was still a legally binding agreement because Hydro has the authority to negotiate such deals.“The Crown in 2014 delegated authority to Manitoba Hydro to negotiate with the Manitoba Metis Federation on these issues,” federation lawyer Jason Madden said.Sanford Riley, the board chairman who resigned last week, said the proposed deal made sense in light of recent court rulings that have supported Metis rights. In 2016, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled the country’s 600,000 Metis have many of the same rights as First Nations, including the right to be consulted on Crown activities that affect them.Pallister has said he quashed the deal to protect taxpayers and Manitoba Hydro, as well as to protect the rights of future generations of Metis to oppose energy projects.last_img read more

TransForce expects energy sector will remain weak throughout 2013

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MONTREAL – TransForce generated record revenues last year but the trucking and courier company expects the weakened energy sector won’t improve any time soon.“Our industry continues to face very difficult times and we do not see any significant improvement before the end of 2013,” CEO Alain Bedard said Friday during a conference call about the company’s fourth-quarter and full-year results.The Quebec-based company earned $36.1 million, or 37 cents per diluted share for the three months ended Dec. 31. That compared to $41.7 million or 41 cents in the same 2011 period.However, adjusted net income, which excluded the after-tax effect of changes in the fair value of derivatives and foreign exchange fluctuations, rose to $37.8 million or 39 cents per diluted share. That’s three cents per share above analyst forecasts and up from $33.9 million or 34 cents in the prior-year period.Quarterly revenue, boosted mainly by the contribution from the acquisitions of Quik X and IE Miller, rose to $778.4 million from $735.5 million.For the full year, the company posted a net profit of $154.2 million or $1.55 per share, up from net income of $102.2 million or $1.06 per share in 2011. Revenue rose to almost $3.15 billion from $2.69 billion as a result of an extra $530 million contributed by “significant acquisitions” made in 2011.Bedard said TransForce will remain focused on reducing costs from its recent acquisitions. improving efficiencies and repaying debt as it positions itself to profit from an eventual recovery in the North American economy.The first couple of months of 2013 have unveiled a disappointing revenue environment in Canada, as its energy business again slowed down, particularly in the Bakken producing region.“I see a lot of clouds in the energy sector so that will put a lot of pressure on my bottom line because this was a gold mine for us,” he said. “The Bakken was a gold mine, now it’s a sand mine.”Bedard said while its rig drilling business in Alberta was down 29 per cent, its operations in Alberta’s oil sands remains robust.He said the light truckload segment is due for more consolidation because of overcapacity.TransForce (TSX:TFI) says it’s also focusing on expanding its waste management business this year, particularly in composting facilities.Maxim Sytchev of Alta Corp Capital said TransForce delivered strong results yet again, demonstrating its ability to produce irrespective of macro-economic conditions.“In a no-growth world, TransForce continues to perform and has a proven model of accretive merger and acquisitions growth,” he wrote in a report.“With the exception of Stantec (TSX:STN) in the industrial universe, we don’t know many companies that are capable of consistently delivering results irrespective of macro conditions while ringing out significant synergies from the growth-by-acquisition strategy.”With operations across Canada and in the United States, TransForce provides package and courier services, truckload and less than truckload hauling and specialized services to the energy and waste management industries among others.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, TransForce’s shares lost $1.01 or 4.57 per cent, at $21.09 in afternoon trading. by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 1, 2013 8:34 am MDT TransForce expects energy sector will remain weak throughout 2013 read more

Investors including Canada Pension Plan seek mining firms climate plans

by Bruce Cheadle, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 1, 2016 1:04 pm MDT Last Updated Feb 1, 2016 at 4:24 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Investors, including Canada Pension Plan, seek mining firms’ climate plans OTTAWA – The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Quebec’s Caisse de depot are among institutional investors seeking greater transparency from three of the world’s biggest mining conglomerates on how they’re dealing with climate change.The “strategic resilience” resolutions put forward on Monday by a coalition of international investors ask giants Rio Tinto, Glencore and Anglo American to provide investors with more information on the risks and business opportunities from a changing climate, starting in 2017.The resolutions follow a similar move last year that targeted oil giants BP and Shell.Four of the 10 biggest pension funds in the world are part of the British-based “Aiming for A” investor coalition, including the Canada Pension Plan and its $272.9 billion in assets.“We’re supportive of the work ‘Aiming for A’ does on transparency,” said Dan Madge, a spokesman for the CPP investment board. “We see this as an important thing for companies to do, which is why we’re lending our name and our influence.”Investors say a new international climate deal brokered in Paris in December puts added pressure on companies to assess their long-term strategic resilience in a carbon-constrained world.Last week, the Liberal government announced that all major resource project applications in Canada are now required to include an assessment of their upstream climate impacts, including the emissions created in the extraction and processing of oil and gas destined for pipelines.Mark Carney, the Canadian governor of the Bank of England, warned the investment and insurance communities last fall about the potential for stranded assets — unburnable reserves of coal, oil and gas — on a warming planet limited by future carbon budgets.The shareholder resolutions filed by the “Aiming for A” coalition are not shaming exercises or publicity stunts, but rather investor efforts to ensure companies come to grips with the long-term business impacts of climate change.The coalition bills the resolutions as “supportive but stretching” of the targeted companies. Helen Wildsmith, a charity fund manager and founder of the group, described the latest resolutions in December as a means for companies to show investors “that their evolving asset portfolios are resilient across future scenarios.”Almost 200 countries agreed in Paris in December to limit global warming to less than two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.ClientEarth, an environmental law non-governmental organization which works with the investor coalition, says the ambitious Paris agenda has global investment implications.“The Paris agreement was a game-changer for carbon-intensive industries and company reporting,” Alice Garton, a lawyer with ClientEarth, said in a release Monday.“These resolutions, which we expect will become binding on management after the AGM (annual general meeting) votes, are an excellent example of investors’ desire for more complete information post-Paris.”Some companies aren’t waiting for shareholders to vote on transparency resolutions. Mining giant BHP Billiton published an investor report, “Climate Change: Portfolio Analysis,” last September.— Follow @BCheadle on TwitterNote to readers: This is a corrected story.

Natural gas engine specialist Omnitek starts shipping to Chinese subsidiary for mining

first_imgOmnitek Engineering Corp has announced that it has commenced shipments of the company’s natural gas engine components to its exclusive distributor in China, Omnitek Beijing. The Omnitek system components will be utilised to convert large marine engines, mining trucks and power generators from diesel to natural gas. New natural gas engine production will prioritise engines for marine and on-road applications. The LNG fuel to operate the mining trucks and river barges will be supplied by SINOPEC, which also plays a supporting role in the projects.Omnitek Beijing is a partner in a new manufacturing facility being built in Shandong Province with capacity for 40,000 natural gas engines annually. Upon completion, the complex will include two factories with engine assembly lines, an office building, engine testing capabilities, a truck assembly line and showroom. The Chinese company has received government authorisation to manufacture and apply natural gas engines for inland waterways, and on-road and off-road applications. “Omnitek Beijing is well situated to take advantage of the large-scale shift to natural gas in China, and we are exited to participate in the development of this market,” said Werner Funk, president and Chief Executive Officer of Omnitek Engineering Corp.“Considerable time and resources have been invested over the past few years to demonstrate the performance and the positive economic impact of diesel-to-natural gas engine conversions and to launch this sizeable project; and, we are gratified that our technology has been recognized as an important solution to water and air pollution caused by diesel engines. We look forward to ramping up top-level component shipments from the company’s US facility in California to the engine manufacturing facility in China, cooperating with technical support and reporting our milestones,” Funk added. He noted natural gas utilisation in China complements the government mandate for replacement of diesel engines to reduce the tremendous environmental burden high-polluting diesel engines place on the environment in China.last_img read more

Taoiseach says Trump could visit Ireland as early as June

first_imgTaoiseach says Trump could visit Ireland as early as June Yesterday in the Oval Office, Trump has said that he hopes to visit Ireland this year. By Christina Finn Yesterday Prime Minister Leo Varadkar @campaignforleo visited the @WhiteHouse to honor #StPatricksDay. Thank you for joining us in celebrating the many wonderful traditions of Ireland! pic.twitter.com/2guft4oJwM— Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) March 15, 2019 Image: Xinhua News Agency/PA Images 9,767 Views Friday 15 Mar 2019, 11:17 PM Share634 Tweet Email1 Image: Xinhua News Agency/PA Images Mar 15th 2019, 11:17 PM Short URL TAOISEACH LEO VARADKAR has said the US President Donald Trump could visit Ireland as early as June. Speaking to reporters in Chicago, on the second leg of his St Patrick’s Day trip to the US, Varadkar said that Trump did not tell him any specific date in which he might visit. However, he said Trump is due to visit Europe twice in the next year – in June and December – adding that it would make sense for Trump to tag a visit to Ireland at the end of one of those trips. He added that no firm details had been discussed with Irish officials as of yet. Trump is expected to attend the D-day commemorations in Normandy in June and the annual NATO summit in December. Yesterday in the Oval Office, Trump has said that he hopes to visit Ireland this year. Describing Ireland as a special place, Trump referenced his golf resort at Doonbeg in Co Clare.“I have a very warm spot for Doonbeg, I will tell you that. And, it’s just a great place,” he said.The US leader made similar comments during last year’s sit down in Washington DC.Last November, Trump was due to visit Clare and Dublin. In September, the status of the visit was the source of much confusion with the Irish government and the White House offering different answers as to whether it would go ahead.Some clarity was finally provided when the White House informed the Irish ambassador in the US that the November trip had been cancelled for “scheduling reasons”. The cancellation blindsided the government, which scrambled to find details from their US counterparts as to whether the trip was postponed or cancelled.Yesterday, the Taoiseach made international headlines when he attended a breakfast meeting with US Vice President Mike Pence with his partner, Matt Barrett. In his speech, he said as leader of Ireland, he is judged on his political record, and not his sexual orientation. Pence has been criticised in the past for his stance on LGBT issues. During last year’s St Patrick’s Day celebrations, Pence extended the invite to Barrett for this year. When asked this evening about whether Pence and Varadkar had discussed the speech, the Taoiseach said:“We didn’t really discuss the speech but we had a good chat afterwards on different issues and I had the chance to meet him again in the White House.“I met his brother who was recently elected to congress and his sister too.“They are very nice people and certainly have made me feel welcome when I have been in DC. Obviously we have very different views on social policy but I think the best way to manage these things is to engage with people rather than boycotting them and that’s what I intend to do.”Earlier today, First Lady Melania Trump tweeted out some photos from yesterday’s events, which included a photo with Trump, Varadkar and Barrett. https://jrnl.ie/4545974 Source: Melania Trump/Twitter 47 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Northstar Travel Media Acquired by Wicks Group

first_imgNorthstar Travel Media, a leading business-information company serving the travel and meetings industries, has been acquired by the Wicks Group, making it one of the very few successful transactions in traditional b-to-b media in the last several years. The transaction price was not disclosed, but Northstar CEO Tom Kemp described the EBITDA multiple—a critical benchmark that has been highly anticipated throughout the industry—as “mid-to-high single digits.” That number would put it at or near the top of the successful transactions in this market during the last few years, including the sale of Canon Communications to UBM in 2010 and the sale of George Little Management last year from Daily Mail and General Trust to Providence Equity Partners. “The pricing reflects the current market and is most directly influenced by the leverage multiples that lenders are willing to put into this marketplace,” Kemp said. “It’s a good sign for b-to-b media that transactions can get done. It has not been a robust market and it has been hard to get things closed.” In the deal, Northstar moves from one private-equity owner, BV Investment Partners, to another, Wicks. BV is a successor company to Boston Ventures, one of the pioneering private-equity firms involved in b-to-b media. Wicks is a New York-based private equity firm that invests in the media, education, and information industries. One of its early b-to-b media investments dates to the late nineties, when it assembled Wicks Business Information. “The fact that Wicks is interested in writing checks into this market is certainly indicative of the sustainable value of the b-to-b sector,” Kemp said.Wicks will retain Kemp and his management team. More than 10 companies participated in the management-presentation phase of the transaction, Kemp said, indicating a strong level of interest in Northstar. “The area that made us most concerned was financing,” he said. “A lot of the lenders still have a lot of distressed properties in these markets.” Industry sources say lenders have dialed back the amount of money they’re willing to loan, down to about three-times EBITDA from historic highs of double that or more.  Northstar, a $60 million company based in Secaucus, New Jersey, serves the retail travel, corporate travel management and and meetings markets. Its brands include Travel Weekly, TravelAge West, Meetings & Conventions, Successful Meetings, Meeting News, Business Travel News, Procurement.travel, and Incentive. It also produces more than 20 face-to-face events, and owns PhoCusWright, a leading research and event producer serving the fastest growing segment of the travel industry, on-line travel distribution.The Jordan, Edmiston Group, Inc., a New York-based investment bank, represented Northstar Travel Media in the deal.last_img read more

Trump Turn The Nations Grief Into Action On Violence

first_imgPresident Donald Trump session with the governors was the latest in which he solicits ideas for stopping gun violence at schools as the White House works to finalize an expected legislative proposal.President Donald Trump told the nation’s governors on Monday that the country will “turn our grief into action” following the deadly mass shooting at a Florida high school, conferring with state leaders ahead of a push in Congress to respond to the latest carnage.“We have to have action,” Trump declared.Addressing the governors in the State Dining Room, Trump again found fault with the officers who didn’t stop the Florida gunman who carried out the massacre, saying they “weren’t exactly Medal of Honor winners.” The president suggested that if he or the governors had been in that position, they would have acted.“I really believe I’d run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon and I think most of the people in this room would have done that, too,” Trump said.Under pressure to act to stem gun violence on school grounds, Trump solicited input from the state chief executives during meetings Monday at the White House. The governors are in Washington for their annual winter meeting.“Our nation is heartbroken. We continue to mourn the loss of so many precious and innocent young lives,” Trump said during a meeting with 39 governors. “But we’ll turn our grief into action. We have to have action.”Seventeen students and teachers were killed in a Valentine’s Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, sparking a public outcry for new gun-control measures as well as action to improve school safety.The president pointed to a number of ideas that he has floated since the shooting, including improving background checks for gun purchases, arming educators and re-opening mental institutions. He has also suggested raising the minimum age for the purchase of assault-style weapons along with paying teachers bonuses for carrying concealed weapons as a way of warding off potential shooters.Trump said he had lunch during the weekend with key leaders of the National Rifle Association, including Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox, and said the NRA officials “want to do something” to address the issue.Trump said there is “no bigger fan of the Second Amendment than me,” but there’s a need to boost background checks and ensure that a “sicko” is unable to get a gun.“Don’t worry about the NRA,” Trump said. “They’re on our side.”Trump’s session with the governors was the latest in which he solicits ideas for stopping gun violence at schools as the White House works to finalize an expected legislative proposal. Trump spent several days last week hearing emotional pleas from parents and students, including some who survived the Parkland shooting, and others who suffered through school shootings in Connecticut and Colorado. He also solicited input from state and local officials.Trump’s daughter and senior adviser, Ivanka Trump, expressed uncertainty when asked whether arming teachers would make children safer.“To be honest, I don’t know,” the mother of three said in an interview with NBC News from South Korea, where she attended the closing ceremonies of the Winter Olympics. “Obviously, there would have to be an incredibly high standard for who would be able to bear arms in our school. But I think there is no one solution for creating safety.”The NRA, which backed Trump for president, opposes increasing the minimum age for assault-style weapons purchases but favors arming teachers.“I think we’re going to have a great bill put forward very soon having to do with background checks, having to do with getting rid of certain things and keeping other things, and perhaps we’ll do something on age, because it doesn’t seem to make sense that you have to wait until you are 21 years old to get a pistol, but to get a gun like this maniac used in the school, you get that at 18,” Trump said during a late Saturday telephone interview with Fox News Channel. “That doesn’t make sense.”This morning, President Trump welcomed about 40 of the Nation’s governors for a business session covering infrastructure, workforce development, opioids, school safety, and other important issues facing America in the year ahead.

Sunny Day Flooding To Increasingly Threaten Texas Coast

first_imgTravis Bubenik/Houston Public MediaA view of the Gulf Coast in Galveston, TXA new government report says the Texas coast is increasingly at risk of flooding, even when there’s not a rain cloud in sight.Sea level rise is projected to cause more flooding from high tides in Texas and across the U.S., according to the report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.The analysis points both to future risk and present-day problems.“Really the future is now in terms of sea level rise impacts,” William Sweet, a NOAA oceanographer, told NPR. “The ocean is at the brim. It’s clogging storm water systems and it’s spilling into streets.”The East Coast has felt the impacts more than Texas so far, with high tides there flooding roads and farms. But NOAA’s report notes that high tide flooding is increasingly rapidly in Texas as well.NOAA researchers expect the western Gulf of Mexico – i.e. the Texas and Louisiana coasts – to see 10 to 20 days of coastal high tide flooding annually by 2030, and anywhere from 65 to 165 days by 2050. The report says those areas will likely see a median of six days of high tide flooding in 2019, a 130% increase from 2000. (The western Gulf saw eight such days in 2018, a year when no hurricanes made landfall in the area.)On a conference call with reporters Wednesday, Sweet said the threat is growing nationwide.“Without adaptation, impacts are likely to become chronic sooner than later,” he said.It’s not just roads that will be increasingly at risk from rising sea levels nationwide; high tide flooding can also overwhelm or damage drainage and sewer systems.“Annual flood records are expected to be broken again next year and for years and decades to come,” the NOAA report summary reads. “Projecting out to 2030 and 2050 provides vital information for communities who are already taking adaptation steps to address coastal flooding impacts and those who are beginning to assess future flood risk in their communities.” Sharelast_img read more
