Canadian general expects extension of antiISIL mission in Iraq and Syria

first_imgOTTAWA – The commander of the Canadian Forces mission in Iraq and Syria says he expects the government to extend the operation past its scheduled expiry date at the end of the month.Brig.-Gen. Dan MacIsaac told The Canadian Press that he’s looking forward to seeing a renewed commitment of more than 800 military personnel in the international anti-terror coalition as part of Wednesday’s long-awaited defence policy review.Details of that and other future foreign military deployments are expected to be unveiled when Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan and Gen. Jonathan Vance, the chief of the defence staff, release the government’s new blueprint for national defence.The table for that defence review will be set in a major foreign policy speech Tuesday by Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland. That speech will affirm “multilateralism and rules-based international systems, human rights, gender equality, the fight against climate change, and economic benefits being shared by all,” the government said in a statement.Freeland’s speech will be the Liberal government’s attempt to define its military, development, diplomatic and trade priorities, and how Canada plans to navigate a world order thrown into disarray by disruptive events such as the election of Donald Trump and the rise of anti-trade forces, sources say.The speech is meant to serve as the “umbrella” for Wednesday’s defence review and the release of the international development review later this month, said a source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because it was still a work in progress.Wednesday’s defence review is expected to lay out the military’s priorities for future overseas deployments, and outline government’s 20-year plan for spending billions of dollars on military hardware to upgrade warships and fighter jets, among other things.Sajjan has said the review will also dovetail with the government’s broader innovation agenda and will explain how the military will partner with the defence industry to create jobs by developing of cutting-edge equipment.For soldiers such as MacIsaac, who is overseeing Canada’s contribution to the international anti-terror fight, it will bring more clarity to ongoing military operations.“We’re looking forward to the government releasing the defence policy review, likely in the next couple of days,” MacIsaac said in a lengthy telephone interview Monday from his headquarters in Kuwait.“I foresee government providing defence further direction, and the government of Canada is committed to contributing to defeating Daesh in Iraq and Syria,” he said, using the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.“We’re definitely here past the 30th of June.”The government has not formally announced an extension of the mission, which is Canada’s contribution to the international coalition of more than 60 countries that is trying to degrade ISIL.MacIsaac said the coalition is continually degrading ISIL’s command and control, weapons making and financing operations across Iraq and Syria, and has reclaimed a swath of land the size of Nova Scotia.“They’ve had to move many a headquarters and many a leader, and we are tracking those changes,” he explained.Though he didn’t specifically reference the recent attacks in London, Manchester and elsewhere, MacIsaac said ISIL is losing the ability to direct attacks across the globe.“There are many Daesh-influenced attacks but I’m not aware of any Daesh-directed attacks,” he said. “So it’s interesting to watch them now try to claim when someone does something criminal … They’re on their hind foot.”Asked if he had a message for war-weary Canadians, MacIsaac replied:“Canada is fortunate. We live in a safe place. But we have a duty to take collective action with our friends to advance the liberty of others and security at home.“If you think you have values, you’ve got to work to show it.”Freeland’s speech will address how Canada plans to project the “hard power” of its military and use its “soft-power” diplomacy, sources say.She will describe how and why Canada was able to play a role in shaping the multilateral order that was built after the Second World War — because the country suffered heavy losses fighting the two world wars, sources say.Now, with the world’s multilateral order under threat and the globe in a period of constant change, those sources say Freeland will say the country must now work to shape the shifting global forces to the Canada’s advantage.Much of that disruption is due to Trump’s “America First” foreign policy — throwing cold water on NATO and the G7, while dumping the Paris agreement on fighting climate change.The source said the speech may not mention Trump directly, but it will re-enforce Canada’s strong economic ties with the U.S., and how Canada’s foreign policy diverges — notably on climate — with its southern neighbour.last_img read more

Trudeau visits with indigenous group at Parliament Hill protest teepee

first_imgOTTAWA – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met Friday with indigenous activists who set up a demonstration teepee on Parliament Hill ahead of Canada Day celebrations.The prime minister and his wife arrived relatively unannounced at the site mid-morning, as the national capital was abuzz with preparations for the July 1 event that’s expected to bring some half a million people into the downtown core.The Bawaating Water Protectors from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., arrived Wednesday night to erect the teepee and engage in four days of what they called a “reoccupation” to draw attention to the history of Indigenous People in Canada during 150th birthday celebrations this weekend.Originally the group clashed with police, who arrested nine people and refused to allow the teepee, but all nine were eventually released and the structure was set up, then later moved to be close to the main stage for Saturday’s events.The prime minister stopped by while he was on Parliament Hill for rehearsals; the activists said they became aware Trudeau was going to visit when the RCMP came to search the structure.The Trudeaus spent about 30 minutes inside, meeting with four people.A video of the meeting posted on YouTube showed the prime minister sitting cross-legged, shoes off, and clasping a feather as he listened to a request from group member Candace Day Neveau that the current federal department responsible for indigenous affairs be renamed the office of honourable treaty relations, and that the current Indian Act be scrapped.“We have to move beyond the Indian Act, we have to end the Indian Act but we can’t do it with the stroke of the pen from Ottawa,” Trudeau said.“We have to do it with your partnership, with your leadership and there are people at different points along their healing journey . . . We need to respect your pace, your leadership.”Trudeau said young voices, like Day Neveau’s, were essential to the process and thanked the group for sharing the moment with him.“As a young leader I am here to say we are going to be holding you accountable for abolishing the Indian Act and for making things right for our people,” Day Neveau told him.Trudeau did not speak to reporters once he exited the tent, but later posted a series of messages on Twitter about the meeting, calling it respectful.“The painful fact behind this protest is that for too long, there’s simply been no space for Indigenous Peoples to be heard in Ottawa,” he tweeted.“Our government is committed & dedicated to moving forward on reconciliation – myself & everyone in cabinet. And we have a lot of work to do.”The teepee may come down Saturday afternoon, but whether it does will require consensus among the group, member Ashley Courchene had said earlier Friday.The Bawaating Water Protestors are just one of many indigenous groups planning protest events and demonstrations this weekend to draw attention to the fact that, for them, there is nothing to celebrate.Heritage Minister Melanie Joly said Friday the government respects the group’s right to protest peacefully.“We know that millions of Canadians will be celebrating tomorrow, but not all Canadians,” she said.“In the context of Canada 150, it is our time to reflect on the darker chapters that happened in our history and also work towards reconciliation and make sure that the next 150 years are way better when it comes to relationships with Indigenous Peoples.”As she clasped a bundle of tobacco in her hand after the meeting with Trudeau, Day Neveau said she hoped everyone could benefit from the message she and others are trying to communicate.“This is a tobacco offering to Canada to stand and support Indigenous People,” she said.“May this be an educational experience for everyone to say that young leaders are rising, Indigenous People are rising.”last_img read more

Cancelling Saudi Arabia arms deal would cost 1 billion Trudeau

first_imgOTTAWA – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says cancelling the controversial contract to sell armoured vehicles to Saudi Arabia would leave taxpayers on the hook for $1 billion.The comments come as the Liberal government is facing new pressure to cancel the deal amid international outrage over the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi earlier this month.Canada has added its voice to global calls for answers, with Trudeau telling the CBC in an interview today that the Saudi government’s explanation of what happened lacks credibility.Human rights groups have urged Canada to cancel the $15-billion contract to sell light armoured vehicles to Saudi Arabia — a 2014 deal signed by the Harper government and upheld by the Liberals.Trudeau says the government could suspend export permits but notes the contract is structured in a way that makes it very difficult to cancel and he is limited in what he can discuss publicly.On Monday, Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said Canada is “gravely concerned by the murder” of Khashoggi, adding there are “very important questions” about the entire relationship with Saudi Arabia.last_img read more

Real Madrid Receives Palestinian Icon Ahed Tamimi

Rabat – Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu welcomed Ahed Tamimi, the Palestinian teen who served eight months in prison for slapping an Israeli soldier.The symbol of the Palestinian struggle visited the Bernabeu at the request of Real Madrid.The visit took place yesterday a few hours before a game between Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid.

PODCAST From India to Brock on Conversations with Goodman

This week’s Conversations with Goodman podcast guest is MBA student Shakti Pradhan who talks to host Susan LeBlanc about his experience at the Goodman School of Business as an international student.Pradhan, who holds an undergraduate degree in engineering, explains how pursuing and MBA degree was an obvious choice for him.“As an engineer, I have always been fascinated by the processes of business,” he says.While following financial markets, Pradhan thought about the skills that managers needed to make effective decisions to lead their companies and knew that he could gain the needed skills through an MBA program.And as for choosing Goodman, Pradhan says it was BioLinc, Brock’s business incubator run by the Goodman School of Business, that sold him.“It is a symbol that Brock fosters creativity and innovation in students,” he says.This year, Pradhan was part of the Goodman Graduate Business Council, the representative student body for Goodman graduate students. Through his involvement, he led his team to win the team’s social media challenge at MBA Games, a national MBA student competition that tests students’ excellence through academic, athletic and spirit challenges.Pradhan’s advice for international graduate students is to keep on learning and making connections.“Don’t just think of MBA as a degree, think of it as a learning experience because I have almost finished my first year here and I have learned a lot from my peers, from MBA Games from case studies, from classes,” he says.“You have to be open to new experiences. You have to be willing to get out of your comfort zone and learn new things and get to know people because MBA is not just about books, it’s also about people.”This podcast is the latest in the Conversations with Goodman series which is produced by the Goodman Marketing, Communications and Alumni Relations team and features guests from the Goodman community. read more

New smoothing constraints in Minemax Scheduler 641

first_imgMinemax states: “Strategic mine planners can spend days just trying to get a smoothed schedule – one where the trucking or total material movement (TMM) doesn’t have drastic peaks and valleys in it. This process can be frustrating and take up valuable time: when you fix one glaring dip or peak in the schedule, another one appears somewhere else.”New smoothing constraints in Minemax Scheduler 6.4.1 “give planners the ability to produce a smooth practical schedule without all those tedious manual iterations. The automated smoothing means more time for running additional scenarios or analyzing results, and there’s also the bonus of greater accuracy, and even a better NPV.”Minemax Scheduler’s new smoothing constraints accomplish this by giving engineers more control on the upward and downward differences in material movement from one period to another. “You just need to set this up as difference constraints in your scenario and let the optimisation find the best value schedule.”This new release also solves another problem planners have been struggling with: how to ensure enough waste is mined for infrastructural projects like roads and tailings dams before processing can begin. “Minemax Scheduler’s new cumulative constraints make sure the necessary amount of waste has been mined for construction without over-constraining the schedule.Minemax Scheduler 6.4.1 is available for download to all maintained users the next time they launch the Minemax Software Manager (MSM).last_img read more

La vague de froid en Europe serait en partie due à la

first_imgLa vague de froid en Europe serait en partie due à la fonte des glaces de l’ArctiqueSelon les spécialistes, la vague de froid qui sévit actuellement en Europe vient confirmer le réchauffement climatique. Ce qui paraît paradoxal s’explique parfaitement, indiquent les climatologues : c’est en partie la fonte des glaces en Arctique qui ferait chuter la température chez nous.Les climatologues ne sont pas du tout surpris de la vague de froid qui frappe actuellement l’Europe alors même que le réchauffement climatique est censé s’aggraver chaque année un peu plus. En effet, selon eux, si nous traversons actuellement le mois de mars le plus froid enregistré depuis 1883, c’est à cause de deux phénomènes conjoints et notamment de la dramatique fonte des glaces qui touche les contrées arctique.”La glace d’eau s’en va rapidement. Il y en a aujourd’hui 80% qu’il y a 30 ans. Il y a eu une perte très importante. C’est un symptôme du réchauffement climatique global et cela contribue à augmenter le réchauffement de l’Arctique”, explique Jennifer Francis, professeur chercheur au Rutgers Institute of Coastal and Marine Science citée par le Guardian. Or, comme l’ont expliqué cette spécialiste et ses collègues, la fonte des glaces a tendance à réchauffer l’océan et l’atmosphère ce qui aurait pour effet de déplacer le courant d’air appelé “jet stream” qui circule entre 6 et 15 kilomètres d’altitude. “C’est ce qui affecte actuellement le jet stream et ce qui conduit à la météo extrême que nous observons à des altitudes moyennes. Cela permet à l’air froid venant de l’Arctique de plonger plus au sud”, a indiqué la scientifique. Le froid est ainsi repoussé vers la Russie et la Sibérie au-dessus desquels se trouve déjà un anticyclone qui bloque la dépression et l’air doux venant de l’Atlantique tout en transformant l’humidité en neige. Ces deux phénomènes mêlés seraient ainsi à l’origine des températures glaciales et des chutes de neige persistantes.Une météo extrême plus fréquente à l’avenir ? À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?”Le modèle peut être lent à changer parce que l’onde sud du jet stream devient plus importante. C’est maintenant quasiment à une position record, donc quelle que soit la météo que vous avez, cela va rester dans les parages”, a ajouté la scientifique.En février dernier, une étude climatique a révélé que de nombreux phénomènes inhabituels sont les conséquences d’une même perturbation des courants atmosphériques dans l’hémisphère nord. Selon les climatologues, les hivers rigoureux risquent donc de se multiplier, une prédiction partagée par le président du groupe d’experts intergouvernemental sur l’évolution du climat (Giec), Rajendra Kumar Pachauri cité par RTBF.be.”Ce qui est tout à fait perceptible c’est qu’au cours des 50 dernières années, la tendance est à la hausse. Cela ne signifie pas qu’il n’y aura pas de haut et de bas, il y en aura, mais ce dont il faut se soucier, c’est de la tendance, et elle est maintenant influencée dans une large mesure par l’activité humaine”, indiquait-il sur le site Rue89 au début du mois.Le 27 mars 2013 à 15:05 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Germanys Manuel Neuer beats Costa Ricas Keylor Navas for World Cups best

Germanys Manuel Neuer beats Costa Ricas Keylor Navas for World Cups best

first_imgRelated posts:A rebuttal to Wall Street Journal editor’s call for US World Cup fans to ignore Costa Rica Joel Campbell and the Ticos against the world: Dates and local times for every group stage match World Cup fever is not a disease, says Costa Rica’s Social Security System Costa Rican prosecutors, judicial police under investigation for alleged use of police database to probe personal information of superstar goalie Keylor Navas RIO DE JANEIRO — Germany’s Manuel Neuer won the World Cup Golden Glove award for the tournament’s best goalkeeper after helping his side to a 1-0 victory over Argentina in Sunday’s final.Neuer held off competition from his Argentine counterpart Sergio Romero and Keylor Navas of surprise package Costa Rica to win the award.The 28-year-old Bayern Munich player was presented with the award at Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana Stadium moments after the triumph.“It is unbelievable, and an awesome experience,” said Neuer of his side’s victory, which gave Germany their fourth world title.The former Schalke goalkeeper was beaten only four times in the tournament and kept four clean sheets, including the 1-0 quarter-final win over France and the victory over Argentina in the final. Statistically, Navas was better, allowing only two goals in five matches.He succeeds Spain’s Iker Casillas, who was voted the outstanding goalkeeper at the 2010 tournament in South Africa.Coincidentally, Navas’ strong play could lead to the Tico backing up Neuer for Germany’s powerhouse club Bayern Munich. The German champions are in negotiations to purchase Navas’ contract from his Spanish club Levante. The move would give Navas a multimillion dollar pay raise, but also likely would force him to the bench for most of the season since he’d only receive sparing starting opportunities over Neuer.Messi shrinks in final, but still takes home Golden BallArgentina captain Lionel Messi ended the World Cup final with a golden trophy in his hands, but it was not the one he wanted.Moments after the final whistle at the Maracana stadium and with Germany’s jubilant players still cavorting on the pitch, Messi was called up to receive the Golden Ball award for the tournament’s best player.He flashed a perfunctory smile, but it was with the knowledge that Argentina’s defeat had prevented him from cementing his place in the pantheon of the truly great.“The truth is it doesn’t interest me at this moment,” he admitted later.While the 27-year-old has won everything there is to win — and broken every record to break — with Barcelona, the World Cup final offered him the opportunity to definitively seal his legacy in the sport.Pele, Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldo all scored decisive goals in World Cup finals, while Diego Maradona created the goal that settled the 1986 tournament. But Messi found himself upstaged by Mario Goetze’s sensational extra-time winner for Germany.He will be haunted in particular by a glaring opportunity early in the second half, when with only Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer to beat, he whipped his shot wide.It was to be his only clear sight of goal, and his failure to seize the chance continued a narrative that had taken root earlier in the knockout phase.Whereas Maradona seemed to grow with each match as Argentina surged to the title in 1986, scoring against England and Belgium in the quarterfinals and semifinals, Messi appeared to shrink.After dazzling in the group phase with four goals, he set up the winning goal for Angel di Maria against Switzerland in the last-16, but in his own encounter with Belgium he flickered only sporadically, and in the semifinal against the Netherlands he was anonymous.Messi has now gone four games without scoring for the first time under the stewardship of coach Alejandro Sabella, misplacing his gift for making a difference at precisely the wrong time.
