Scheer calls for renegotiated Safe Third Country Agreement

first_imgSAINT-BERNARD-DE-LACOLLE, Que. – Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is banking on diplomacy with the United States to reduce the number of asylum seekers who enter Canada illegally.Scheer says the solution to the problem lies in a renegotiation of the Safe Third Country Agreement between Canada and the United States.The agreement allows both countries to turn back asylum seekers at border crossings except when they enter through an illegal point of entry.Scheer says there are people in refugee camps in Africa and the Middle East who are more deserving of being allowed to enter Canada.The Tory leader visited the Quebec border town of Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle on Friday as well as the nearby Roxham Road crossing where thousands of people have entered Canada illegally.He took direct aim at Justin Trudeau, saying the crisis was caused by the prime minister’s tweet in January 2017 that Canada would welcome people fleeing persecution, terror and war.“It’s clear that all the ideas proposed so far, since the famous tweet of Justin Trudeau where he said all are welcome…that everything the government has proposed up till now is just to manage the symptoms of the crisis but not to address the cause in the first place,” he said.Scheer also criticized the installations that have been built at the border to welcome the asylum seekers.“There really is an air of permanence,” he said.“The buildings that have been installed, the systems that have been installed, it seems to us that without solving the root causes of this problem.. that these installations will become more and more permanent.”last_img read more

Ohio State womens volleyball wants revenge against Nebraska

With the first half of the season in the tank, finishing strong in the Big Ten will be the focus as the No. 20 Ohio State women’s volleyball team tries to shift into second gear. The Buckeyes own a 15-7 overall record and a 6-4 record in the conference play. Despite sitting fourth in the Big Ten standings, coach Geoff Carlston said his team still has a lot of work to do this season. “I think the good thing is we will all admit that we have some areas of improvement, and I think our defense has really picked it up and it’s just a lot of little things now,” Carlston said. The Buckeyes have had some impressive wins this season, mainly on the road. Early in the season, OSU upset then-No. 10 Dayton, then-No. 21 Illinois and won a pivotal Big Ten matchup against Michigan State. “We had some big-time road wins and more big wins in general,” said junior libero Julianne Mandolfo. Mandolfo said she understands the team needs to stay focused and continue to work hard to finish the way they want to through the second half of its season. “We just need to keep doing the same things that we’re doing, but just add a little bit more to each game,” Mandolfo said. “Some of the losses were two-point differences, so if we just clean up a couple of points in those losses (they) can become wins in the second half.” The team’s most recent losses included then-No. 17 Purdue and then-No. 1 Penn State. Senior outside hitter Mari Hole said one of the biggest things the team needs to work on is mental toughness. “Looking at the last few games, we still lack some mental strength,” Hole said. “We need to be better at finishing games. We’re good at it, but we’re not great at it.” Carlston said he continues to push his players to be tougher and smarter. “Making those plays at 24 all in the Big Ten on the road requires serving a little tougher, changing the offense … just offensive tweaks and defensive tweaks,” Carlston said. “You got to come into the second round of the Big Ten ready to adapt and ready to be fluid because everyone kind of knows each other a little bit more.” What might set the good teams apart from great ones are the type of plays they make from the 18th point to the 25th point in a game. It’s an area Mandolfo said she sees as an issue. “We’ve actually learned that throughout the whole game, we’ve kept one-on-one with every single team in the Big Ten,” Mandolfo said. “The games we have slipped up and lost, we’ve noticed that at 18 (points), we’ve done some mental errors.” Oftentimes, the halfway mark for any team marks a time for players and coaches to look back and reflect upon their performances to measure where they are. “I still know that there is still a lot that we can work on, but to be honest, I still don’t think we hit our max effort, so that’s always good,” Mandolfo said. Carlston said he is eager for the second half of the season to begin. “I’m excited where our team is,” Carlston said. “We got some good mojo, team chemistry is strong, and the team is feeling good about themselves. So I’m excited to get into the last half.” Hole said she is enjoying every second of her final season as a Buckeye and looks forward to the second act of what has been a fast-paced season. “I’m just starting to get really excited about the whole thing,” Hole said. “Just taking one game at a time, I am just enjoying it. And the fact that I’m a senior, it’s fun.” The Buckeyes are scheduled to travel to Lincoln, Neb., to face the No. 4 Cornhuskers Friday, and then travel to Iowa City, Iowa, to battle the Hawkeyes on Saturday. The Buckeyes lost 3-1 to Nebraska in Columbus on Sept. 22 and they are looking to avenge that loss. “Nebraska came to our place and beat us, so we’re looking forward to revenge, obviously,” Mandolfo said. “Since I’m from there, all my family is going to be there. So it’s just going to be even more motivation to get a win there.” On the road, the Buckeyes have totaled a 7-1 mark compared to their 4-4 record at home. “I think for whatever reason, this group has been strong on the road, so I don’t think we mind being on the road at all,” Carlston said. “If you’re going to beat Nebraska at home, beat Iowa at home, you got to play well for two hours.” Hole felt similarly. “Nebraska is a good team, and it’s going to be a battle,” Hole said. “We are definitely the underdogs, but I think that is in our favor.” Carlston said his team will be ready. “There’s something about this group that they’re not afraid to go on the road and battle,” he said. read more

Best of 2017 coverage of Ohio State athletics

Urban Meyer raises the Cotton Bowl trophy following the end of game against the University of Southern California on Dec. 29 in AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX. Ohio State won 24-7. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorOhio State is one of the most polarizing athletics programs in the country, which makes for some great coverage throughout a year. With 2017 closing, The Lantern compiled nine of the most significant stories or some of the best writing during the year.1) Self-reported NCAA violations prevent Ohio State from recruiting 5-star prospect Micah ParsonsMany who follow the Ohio State football team wondered why the Buckeyes stopped recruiting five-star defensive end prospect Micah Parsons. In documents obtained through a public records request, sports editor Colin Hass-Hill found that Ohio State self-imposed a ban on recruiting Parsons following NCAA infractions during the recruit’s official visit in September.The report garnered national attention with the early-signing period taking place the next day.2) Thad Matta out as Ohio State men’s basketball head coachThis was shocking news that dominated the college basketball news cycle for an entire week. Ohio State fired its winningest men’s basketball coach in school history on June 5, 2017 after 13 seasons. Despite four straight Sweet 16 berths and five Big Ten championships, Ohio State went in a new direction after two straight years of missing the NCAA Tournament.The Lantern published eight articles in the two days after the announcement relating to Matta’s firing.3) Ohio State hires Chris Holtmann as men’s basketball head coachThe coaching search ended with then-Butler head coach Chris Holtmann. Just four days after Ohio State Athletics Director Gene Smith addressed the media about Matta’s departure, Holtmann signed an eight-year deal to become Ohio State’s next head coach. The change in the basketball program was the biggest story in Ohio State athletics in 2017, and one of the largest college sports stories of the year.The Lantern published eight stories relating to the initial report of Holtmann’s hire and his press conference on June 12.4) Ohio State sweeps BYU, wins NCAA men’s volleyball championshipOSU men’s volleyball captains raise their second-consecutive national title trophy on Saturday at the NCAA national championship game. Credit: Sheridan Hendrix | Oller ReporterThe most dominant program in 2017 at Ohio State was the men’s volleyball that ended its historic season with a national championship on its home floor in St. John Arena. The Buckeyes won in straight sets against BYU to win its second consecutive national championship. They also broke the school and conference record for most consecutive wins with 42. Ohio State ended the season 32-2.5) J.K. Dobbins emerging as potential standoutLooking back, this story predicted one of the biggest storylines of Ohio State’s football season. The article foretold the impact freshman running back J.K. Dobbins would have on the Buckeyes’ offense. Running back coach Tony Alford said in August that Dobbins understood the offense “faster than anybody I’ve ever been around in my 22 years.” Dobbins ended up breaking the school’s freshman rushing record with 1,403 and averaging more than 7 yards per carry.6) Hurricane Harvey impacting Houston-native Ohio State athletesHurricane Harvey and the damage it brought about was one of the country’s biggest stories in 2017 — and its impact extended into Ohio State’s athletic department. In this story, Lantern sports editors Colin Hass-Hill and Ed Sutelan explained how, speaking with four Buckeye athletes from the Houston area. The story shed light on the difficulties of witnessing personal tragedies from afar and illustrated that no matter how distant an event might seem, it is likely impacting people in our local community.7) Ohio State’s championship hopes fade away in loss to IowaUrban Meyer paces the sideline during the fourth quarter of the Ohio State-Iowa game on Nov. 4. Ohio State lost 24-55. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorBefore anyone could figure out how or why it happened, it was clear what Ohio State’s 55-24 meant: the Buckeyes were probably not going to the College Football Playoff for a second straight season. While hope resurfaced, especially after winning the Big Ten title, the 31-point road loss was a key reason — if not the reason — Ohio State found itself on the outside the top 4. In this story, Lantern assistant sports editor Ed Sutelan captures the significance of the loss — and why in the years to come, this game, perhaps more than the Penn State thriller or another Michigan victory, will stand out in any lookback at 2017. 8) Ohio State beat itself, then beat Penn StateWhile the loss to Iowa would tarnish some of the shine Ohio State acquired after knocking off then-No. 2 Penn State, Lantern sports editor Colin Hass-Hill skillfully demonstrates in this story just how resilient the Buckeyes were in overcoming self-inflicted wound after self-inflicted wound. It’s a terrific piece of writing on one of the season’s memorable and entertaining games. 9) Bo Jordan alters training regimen in hopes of staying healthyIn one of the sports sections’ best written stories this year, Lantern reporter Jeff Helfrich chronicles how redshirt senior wrestler Bo Jordan has altered his approach to training in order to avoid the injuries that have hindered him for four seasons so he can go out on top as a national champion. With Jordan boasting a 14-2 record through Dec. 17 and a No. 3 ranking in his weight class, so far, so good. read more

Referee stands by penalty decision in Bayerns 31 defeat in cup

first_imgReferee Felix Zwayer has revealed that he does not have any doubts over his decision to not award Bayern Munich a penalty and, critically, the opportunity to equalise in their 3-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt in the DFB Pokal finalThe German official controversially denied Bayern a late penalty with the score at 2-1 after Kevin-Prince Boateng appeared to have fouled Javi Martinez in the penalty area.Zwayer took the final decision after reviewing the incident on VAR.“I originally decided to give a corner, despite seeing Martinez fall to the ground. However, the challenge looked odd and it wasn’t clear why. Therefore, I decided to consult Video Assistant Bastian Dankert and he told me that TV pictures showed contact and I should look again myself,” he explained, according to ESPN.“I saw there was contact but, in my view, it wasn’t a serious contact since Martinez put the foot that was hit stably on the ground without changing its motion, before lifting his other leg, flying forward and to the ground.”rb leipzig, bayern munichReport: Bayern are held by Leipzig George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Bayern Munich was held to another draw, this time by RB Leipzig.Bayern Munich finds themselves in the unfamiliar position of sitting third in the…Asked if the contact was sufficient enough to award a penalty: “Not for me because I could not see via the TV pictures any contact that in my view could have caused Martinez to fall. The impact and effect did not match for me. I did not see any contact on the TV pictures to convince me to change my original perception and decision. Even after two days, I stand by this decision.”Frankfurt immediately took advantage of the aftermath of the incident by breaking free and scoring the third goal of the game that ended any hopes Bayern may of had of pulling off a comeback.Frankfurt boss Niko Kovac, who will take charge at Bayern for next season, agreed that it was a penalty.“Kevin [Prince Boateng] wanted to clear the ball but he makes contact with his [Martinez] foot.”He added: “In my opinion, yes, that was a penalty.”last_img read more
