first_imgBritish Columbia and Manitoba are the latest provinces to outline their plans for the sale of marijuana with legalization looming July 1. Here is a glance at provincial and territorial plans to date.— Alberta plans to control the online sale of pot, but will leave over-the-counter sales to private operators. Details on how sales would work have yet to be determined. Private pot stores would have to be physically separate from stores that sell alcohol, tobacco or pharmaceuticals, but how that would be legally defined is also undetermined. Stores would not be allowed to sell anything but cannabis and cannabis-related products.— British Columbia has set the age of consumption at 19, with retail sales allowed through both public and private stores. Retailers will have to get their supply of cannabis from the government’s wholesale distribution system used for alcohol.— Manitoba also plans to set its legal age at 19, a year later than the legal age for drinking alcohol. The government’s legislation would also prohibit people from growing cannabis at home for recreational purposes. Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries would regulate the sale of cannabis and municipal governments would have the option to ban sales by referendum.— New Brunswick has proposed legislation that would set the minimum age at 19 and requires users to lock away their marijuana when its in their home. A legislature committee has recommended selling marijuana through government-operated stores.— Newfoundland and Labrador will allow sales in private stores with the legal age set at 19. The Crown-owned liquor corporation will oversee the distribution to private retailers. Consumption will be restricted to private residences.— The Northwest Territories has been holding discussions with residents that include community meetings and an online survey, which has garnered a record response for a government online consultation tool.— Nova Scotia Justice Minister Mark Furey has said the province will release its recreational marijuana plans — including minimum age and the retail model — by the end of this year. His department is analyzing the results of an online survey to which 31,000 people responded between Oct. 6 and Oct. 27.— Nunavut completed initial stakeholder consultations through the summer of 2017 and was holding a public survey to help guide the development of policy and legislative options.— Ontario intends to sell the drug in up to 150 stores run by the Liquor Control Board of Ontario to people 19 and older, with a ban on its consumption in public spaces or workplaces.— Prince Edward Island has held public consultations, asking islanders to weigh in on the legal age, where marijuana should be sold, how it’s used in public and growing weed at home, among other issues.— Quebec has tabled a bill whereby all pot would be sold through the provincially run liquor board, although there is flexibility for exceptions. Quebec plans to open 15 marijuana stores by July 1 and control sales online. The bill also makes it illegal to cultivate pot for personal or commercial use, unless authorized, and limits possession in a home to 150 grams, and to 30 grams on a person. There will also be a zero-tolerance policy for driving under the influence of any drug.— Saskatchewan has held a public consultation. The province said in its recent throne speech that it will introduce pot legislation once a review is completed this fall.— Yukon has proposed 19 as the minimum age for the consumption of recreational marijuana, and would limit possession to 30 grams. Its proposals would also allow four plants to be grown per household. The public has until Dec. 20 to comment on the proposed framework, which includes initially limiting distribution and sales to government outlets.last_img read more

TORONTO — Torstar Corp. says it will close its Hamilton printing and mailroom operations this summer and look at selling the property.The newspaper publisher says the printing work done at the facility will be transferred to TC Transcontinental Printing and other Torstar-owned facilities as well as other external printers.The decision will affect approximately 73 full-time and 105 part-time staff.In connection with the move, Torstar says it has extended its printing arrangements with TC Transcontinental Printing to 2024.Torstar expects to save approximately $4 million to $6 million annually once the change is fully implemented. It expects to record a roughly $6-million restructuring charge in connection with the closure.If the property is sold, the company says it expects the Hamilton Spectator will continue to operate a head office in a new location in the Hamilton area.“This was a difficult but necessary decision in order to operate more efficiently,” Torstar chief executive John Boynton said in a statement.“This is in no way a reflection of the print and mailroom quality at the Hamilton facility, but rather a decision based on aging presses and more cost-effective alternatives.”——Torstar holds an investment in The Canadian Press as part of a joint agreement with subsidiaries of the Globe and Mail and Montreal’s La Presse. read more

by News Staff Posted May 7, 2012 5:10 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Opposition parties accuse McGuinty of trying to buy way to Liberal majority TORONTO – Premier Dalton McGuinty is trying to use plum government appointments to get the majority the Liberals were denied by voters in last fall’s election, Ontario’s opposition parties charged Monday.McGuinty already created the need for one byelection by naming veteran Progressive Conservative Elizabeth Witmer to the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board, and there are reports the Liberals are making similar job offers to other Tories.NDP Leader Andrea Horwath said voters are turned off politics and get very cynical when they hear McGuinty is using plum public appointments to try to alter the makeup of the legislature.“They’re concerned that a premier would abuse the public appointments process for his own partisan needs,” Horwath told the legislature.“They’re concerned about the complete contempt that shows for other MPPs, and they’re most concerned because it means the premier is more worried about his political challenges instead of the challenges that they face each and every day.”The Progressive Conservatives expressed frustration that the Liberals seem focused on getting the one seat they need for a majority while virtually ignoring a recent credit downgrade by Moody’s.“That should be a huge alarm bell that we’re teetering on the brink of a huge fiscal crisis in the province of Ontario,” said Opposition Leader Tim Hudak.“So what’s the government’s response? They look to buy seats and have byelections.”McGuinty dismissed a public report claiming he had bragged to the Liberal caucus about offering appointments to at least two more opposition members in hopes of creating another vacancy, telling the legislature not to put any credit in unnamed sources.The premier then mocked the opposition parties, inviting Tories and New Democrats to cross the floor and sit as Liberals in a majority government.“If there are any people on those (opposition) benches who want to come over and sit on this side of the floor, they will be welcomed with open arms,” McGuinty said with a laugh.“This is very difficult for me to say, but there are no exceptions. They will all be welcome.”Outside the legislature, Horwath said voters don’t find the Liberals’ political manoeuvring to be very funny.“I think Ontarians are wondering why the priority of the premier is about which MPP might be ripe for the picking as opposed to which kind of policy changes they can make to make life better for everyday folks,” she said.“People would, I think, prefer us to focus on their problems, their concerns, than the games around here that will get government more power.”The premier has up to six months to call the byelection to replace Witmer in Kitchener-Waterloo. While campaigning in the riding last week, McGuinty said he doesn’t believe in calling snap byelections in hopes of catching the opposition parties off guard.The Liberals fell just one seat short of a majority in the provincial election Oct. 6, taking 53 seats compared to 54 for the combined Tories and New Democrats. With Witmer’s resignation, the opposition benches were reduced to 53 members — the same number as the government, but Liberal Speaker Dave Levac would vote only in cases of a tie.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version incorrectly stated the number of seats held by the Liberals and opposition parties and misidentified the Speaker. read more

first_imgProperly maintaining equipment used in the mining process reduces downtime and avoids repair issues. In extremely dusty, demanding environments, protecting the engines of valuable machinery with precleaners can be a strategic way to reduce equipment breakdown and boost output. To achieve maximum efficiency, major drilling equipment provider Atlas Copco Drilling Solutions uses turbo® Precleaners on blasthole drill rigs worldwide.These drilling rigs operate in iron, coal, gold and copper mines, very hostile environments where managing dust and debris is always a challenge. Because airborne contaminants cause premature wear and reduce the life of air filters, oil filters, oils and components in air compressors and engines, Atlas Copco’s engineers installed turbo® Precleaners PowerRamTM precleaners to prevent debris from entering the drill rig’s air intakes.Due to the massive size of the drilling rigs, each Atlas Copco rig uses four turbo PowerRamswhich meet the requirements of large machines with engines requiring airflow of over 4,000 ft3/min. The company chose turbo® precleaners as critical ‘front line’ protection to ensure continuous operation in severe-duty applications. “A filtration failure from poor design or neglected service can damage critical components and shut down the entire rig,” said Nathan Wells, Atlas Copco design engineer. He continued, “Major parts replacement and labor costs are compounded with the remote locations of the mines, creating a downtime ripple effect – drilling rigs are the frontline of the overall mining process, so a rig down often means production delays as well.”What sets turbo® Precleaners apart from other precleaner brands is a patented straight-through air flow pathway which creates less air intake restriction to optimise engine power. Engineered paddles create centrifugal force which ejects up to 85% of contaminants through discharge ports. This unique design effectively removes airborne debris including dust, dirt and moisture, including particles as small as 1 to 2 µm, ultimately allowing only filtered air into the engine for maximum performance.  According to Wells, “We have found that turbo Precleaners increase uptime with a longer service life, and they also eliminate having to manually empty dust cups.”Maintenance not only includes downtime but also material cost. By extending the life of air filters, turbo® Precleaners reduce the expense of replacement filter purchases. This is particularly important today with a recent filtration industry trend towards air filters designed with media which cannot be cleaned but instead require complete replacement.PowerRam precleaners feature an innovative directional scoop and a wide-angled air intake to improve engine performance by delivering more air to the engine.  Constructed with durable, powder coated steel and tested to ISO 5011 standards, these high airflow precleaners are designed to meet the performance needs of large engines requiring airflow between 400 and 1500 ft3/min. This makes them well-suited for the demands of many types of equipment used in mining. According to Tracy Long, turbo® Precleaners Director of Business Development, “Anything that has a diesel engine can benefit from air intake filtration, from drill rigs and bulldozers to dump trucks and hauling equipment.”Atlas Copco’s Wells notes some of the key advantages the company has experienced with turbo® Precleaners, “They’re easy to install, reduce air restriction, deliver cleaner air and can handle the same extremes our rigs do.”The picture shows four turbo® Precleaners PowerRamTM precleaners installed on Atlas Copco PV271 drill rig used in a gold mine in Nevada.turbo® Precleaners is a product line of Maradyne Corp.last_img read more

first_imgTHE PENALTY POINTS system needs to be overhauled to stop serial offenders from “escaping” sanctions, the Public Accounts Committee has heard.John O’Brien, the former head of the Garda Traffic Corps, told the committee that the current system is unsustainable for a number of reasons.“The worst offenders escape … all you have to do is ignore the system.”The retired Chief Superintendent said that once an offence goes to the summonses-issuing stage, “a very small percentage of summonses are served” and “even less are convicted”.He said only 14% of cases that went to court resulted in convictions so people had an 86% chance of escaping sanctions.A recent report into the quashing of penalty points carried out by Assistant Commissioner John O’Mahoney found that 52% of the summonses issued in respect of 178,500 cases in 2012 and 2013 were never served.In total, notices were terminated for 42,700 offences (5%) detected in 2011 and 2012.On Tuesday, acting Garda Commissioner Noirín O’Sullivan announced a raft of reforms of the fixed charge notice system, including that local gardaí could no longer overturn penalty points.Speed CamerasO’Brien noted that speed cameras had done a lot in helping reduce the number of road deaths, which dropped from 396 in 2006 to 190 in 2013.He said that Irish roads had “come a long way” over the years, noting that over 600 people were killed in road accidents in 1972, the worst year on record.O’Brien admitted these figures would “do little to comfort” people who have lost someone on our roads, but said it was important to note the progress that had been made.However, he questioned the fact that “eight or ten” Garda detection cameras accounted for about 24% of all speeding detections on Irish roads while 40 GoSafe cameras detected 22% of speeding. Source: Report on the Accounts of the Public Services 2012He also said that the GoSafe system is not “flexible” enough as people are becoming familiar with where the cameras are stationed and it is a “major exercise” to move them.PAC Chairman John McGuinness said that the cameras were “just a waste of a resource” if they could not be moved freely.O’Brien previously raised these and other issues in a report he compiled for the Garda Síochána Ombudsman in 2008, but said both GSOC and the Department of Justice ignored his recommendations.He added that the photos taken when a person is caught speeding should be used to identify people who are driving company cars and trying to avoid penalty points.GoSafeAn Garda Síochána’s speed camera operations were outsourced to GoSafe in November 2010 and became fully operational in March 2011.The cost of operating the GoSafe system was €0.2 million including VAT in 2010, €15.8 million in 2011 and €15.6 million in 2012. The estimated cost for 2013 is €16.6 million.Receipts collected in 2012 from fixed charge notices issued on foot of detections by the GoSafe safety cameras amounted to €4.6 million.As a result, there was a shortfall of €11 million relative to the cost of the service. An Garda Síochána made up for this through money made from penalty points issued in other ways such as Garda camera vans. Source: Report on the Accounts of the Public Services 2012GoSafe speed cameras record about 7,375 hours of driving in 727 locations across the country each month.In April, Assistant Garda Commissioner John Twomey of the Garda National Traffic Bureau told the Oireachtas Transport Committee that the average compliance in the monitored zones by speed cameras was above 90%.Related: Three ‘possible breaches’ identified in penalty points reportRead: Speed cameras record more than 7,000 hours of driving each monthRelated: Local gardaí can no longer overturn penalty pointslast_img read more

first_imgA research paper published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation this month claims that patients worldwide are being deceived into taking drugs they don’t need, don’t work and put lives at risk. Co-author of the paper, Dr Emmanuel Stamatakis – Associate Professor at the University of Sydney said it was ”entirely illogical” to rely on the pharmaceutical industry to fund medical research. The Crete-born professor, who is also a senior research associate at University College, London, told Neos Kosmos that whilst industry funding of research was necessary, the model of funding used needs to be radically overhauled. “The current system creates a culture of dependency between the sponsor of the trial, who wants favourable conclusions for their product, and the academic researcher who does the study, who needs funding to advance their career,” said Dr Stamatakis. ”Asking corporate sponsors to conduct pivotal trials on their own products is like asking a painter to judge their own painting to receive an award.” Dr Stamatakis – whose research interests include exploring how too little exercise affects cardiometabolic and mental health – cites as an example of the problem anti-diabetic drugs that increase the risk of heart problems, despite interventions like physical exercise being more effective. The anti-diabetic drug Rosiglitazone continues to be available in Australia despite being withdrawn in Europe and New Zealand after thousands of lawsuits were filed against its manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline. “Rosiglitazone is a good example of the existing regulatory nets being ineffective and slow,” says Stamatakis. “The manufacturer was stockpiling profits and people were dying because of its dangerous side-effects. “The fact that several countries did not even bother to withdraw it from the market shows that there is a reluctance and limited political courage to go against the industry.” The research paper Dr Stamatakis co-wrote – which includes data from studies in the UK and US as well as Australia – says drug companies “masterfully influenced” every stage of the health system. After evaluating 600 clinical trials, researchers found that clinical trials funded by pharmaceutical companies were four times more likely to favour the sponsored drug than drugs sponsored by not-for-profits. The research also showed pharmaceutical companies used flawed evidence of a drug’s effectiveness to persuade doctors to prescribe it. Analysts say Australia is lagging behind other countries in its efforts to limit unethical behaviour by drug companies. In the US, legislation was introduced to allow anyone to look up which doctors receive industry funding. Stamatakis believes one solution would be to ‘blind’ the process of the pharmaceutical industry’s funding of research. “Each company could provide funding to a public pool for clinical research. Then an independent organisation could allocate the funding to research institutions on the basis of their ability and research track record,” says the associate professor. “That way academic institutions and researchers would have no reason to please the sponsor of a trial. A government agency could be the moderator in this process. Such a system could be a major step forward. “Soft steps towards voluntary encouragement will never work. It has to be sorted out with firm legislation – banning direct contact and transactions between doctors and the industry.” A transparency working group has been established by Medicines Australia to identify ways to improve the drug industry’s relationship with Australian healthcare professionals. Its recommendations will be published in June. Rosiglitazone: In July 2011, NPS MEDICINEWISE – an independent not-for-profit which advises Australian health professionals – announced that doctors should contact Medicare for approval of any new or repeat prescription of Rosiglitazone and advised avoiding its prescription to anyone with a risk of cardiovascular problems.

first_imgGrève des infirmiers anesthésistes le 18 maiFrance – Les infirmiers anesthésistes seront en grève le 18 mai prochain à l’initiative du Syndicat national des infirmiers anesthésistes. Ils réclament des salaires plus adaptés à leurs importantes responsabilités ainsi que la reconnaissance de la pénibilité de leur travail, afin de continuer à partir à la retraite à 55 ans. Les infirmiers anesthésistes étaient déjà entrés en grève le 4 mai dernier, cependant ils ont estimé que la ministre de la Santé Roselyne Bachelot n’avait pas assez pris en compte leurs revendications, d’où un nouveau mouvement de grève demain.Les Iade (Infirmiers anesthésistes diplômés d’État) sont comme leur nom l’indique spécialisés dans l’anesthésie. Leur profession nécessite 5 ans d’étude. Ils ont donc de grosses responsabilités, pour lesquelles ils demandent, de par la grève, une reconnaissance accrue. La ministre de la Santé avait, suite aux précédentes grèves, annoncé réfléchir à la prise en compte de leur niveau d’études pour le calcul des indemnités. En ce qui concerne la pénibilité du travail des infirmiers anesthésistes, elle souhaitait ouvrir une concertation sur la “pénibilité de la fonction et le déroulement de la carrière”.Lors de la mobilisation qui avait eu lieu le 11 mars dernier, presque tous les infirmiers anesthésistes de France avaient participé à la grève, et l’action s’était renouvelée le 4 mai dernier.
