Morneau tweet warning of Scheers hidden agenda on spending cuts is misleading

OTTAWA — Finance Minister Bill Morneau on Monday used a three-year-old video to paint Andrew Scheer as a Conservative leader who would impose “painful cuts” to public spending if he wins the October election, part of a string of attacks by Liberal Cabinet members in recent weeks.On Monday, Morneau posted a 2016 video to Twitter that showed Scheer talking about his plans to balance the budget if he ever formed government. Scheer at one point suggests that past Conservative governments had made the mistake of proposing spending cuts with a “hard-edged tone,” and said future leaders should be more “careful” about how the convey such retrenchment.The finance minister claimed Scheer had been “caught telling a private meeting of Conservatives” about his plans to cut spending, while also detailing his intention to “hide” those very plans from voters. “This is what Conservative politicians do,” Morneau said in a separate tweet, claiming they would cut services for average Canadians.Andrew Scheer is committed to painful cuts, but he’s trying really hard not to talk about it. This video proves it. Scheer’s been caught telling a private meeting of Conservatives about his cuts plan, and promises to be “very, very careful” to hide it. pic.twitter.com/LWBruflZTs— Bill Morneau (@Bill_Morneau) September 9, 2019But the video is from a September 2016 Conservative candidate forum that was widely shared on public platforms including Facebook. In it, Scheer spoke about the need to balance budgets, primarily by not “spending the money in the first place.”“When it comes to making tough decisions and cuts, I agree that it’s something that’s very important,” he said. “But we also have to be very, very careful how we communicate that to people.”Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.A spokesperson for Scheer suggested the video editing released by Morneau was highly misleading. The Liberals removed a sentence in the middle of Scheer’s response that appears to address Ottawa’s spending under Morneau, according to a full version of the video on Facebook.“One of the best ways to get out of a hole is stop digging, and not inventing new ways of spending money,” Scheer had said, in an apparent reference to Morneau’s fiscal policy.“This is just more desperation from Justin Trudeau and his Liberals,” said spokesperson Simon Jefferies. “They want to talk about anything other than their record, and they will lie to Canadians again and again.” Matt Gurney: Instead of attacking Scheer over a 2005 video, Liberals could actually try doing politics differently Kelly McParland: Liberals go for maximum hypocrisy on Scheer’s abortion views ‘The first salvo’: Liberals dig up 14-year-old video of Andrew Scheer speaking against same-sex marriage The tweet by Morneau underscores an attempt by the Liberal Party to strategically run deficits ahead of the federal election, then frame any plans to return to balance as an act of “austerity” that threatens voter livelihoods. It also taps into the anxieties of some voters, who fear budget cuts for crucial social services.His comments come amid a string of attacks on the Conservative leader from Liberal Cabinet members in recent weeks, including Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale and Tourism Minister Mélanie Joly. Industry Minister Navdeep Bains echoed Morneau’s comments Monday, saying Canada “can’t cut its way to prosperity.”Prime Minster Justin Trudeau promised in 2015 to run a $10-billion deficit in his first budget, which he would bring back to balance by 2019. The party almost immediately abandoned those plans, running deficits nearly twice that size, and scrapping plans to return to surplus.Scheer had initially promised to balance the budget in two years if the Conservatives formed government, but quickly abandoned those plans in May this year, extending the timeline to five years.The party has not explicitly said how it would return the budget to balance, besides scrapping the $35-billion Canada Infrastructure Bank, among a few other things.Economists over the past four years widely agreed that Ottawa should have trimmed its fiscal spending measures, particularly in 2017 when its economy was running near full capacity.This is just more desperationSean Speer, a former economic advisor to Stephen Harper, said Morneau likely continued to run deficits largely as a marketing exercise.“The government’s fiscal policy is not motivated by considerations about the business cycle or the proper fiscal strategy,” Speer wrote recently for the Macdonald-Laurier Institute. “Mr. Morneau’s ongoing deficit is not about policy. It is about politics. His government has sought to weaponize deficit spending as a political tool.”Observers say Ottawa has repeatedly run sizeable deficits despite a windfall in revenues, which could have helped narrow its fiscal gap. Ottawa ran a $15-billion deficit in 2018-19, for example, even after seeing a $3.1-billion surplus over the first 11 months of the year, due mainly to higher revenues.“Arguing about whether the deficit ought to be the subject of policy-based approval or alarm is regrettably irrelevant,” Speer wrote. “It presupposes that the government sincerely grappled with serious fiscal policy questions as part of the process.”Liberal Cabinet ministers have aimed a string of attacks at the Conservative leader in recent weeks, including a tweet by Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale that showed a 2005 video of Scheer denouncing same-sex marriage, partly on the grounds that gay couples cannot undergo the “natural procreation of children,” according to his speech in the House of Commons.Goodale asked in the tweet whether Scheer “would still deny same-sex couples the right to marry,” even after Goodale himself voted in favour of a motion in 1999 stating that marriage should “remain the union of one man and one woman to the exclusion of all others.”• Email: jsnyder@postmedia.com | Twitter: jesse_snyder read more

Retail sales fall 05 per cent in December as holiday shopping slowed

by Craig Wong, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 22, 2017 6:51 am MDT Last Updated Feb 22, 2017 at 9:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email OTTAWA – A weak holiday shopping season took a bite out of retail sales, which were softer than expected in December.Statistics Canada said Wednesday that retail sales fell 0.5 per cent in December as shops typically associated with the holiday season saw sales fall.Economists had expected no change in December compared with November, according to Thomson Reuters.December’s decline followed four consecutive monthly increases in Canadian retail sales.Benjamin Reitzes, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets, said part of the drop can be attributed to Canadians starting their holiday shopping earlier in the year.“Black Friday is definitely a cause,” he said referring to the Friday after the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday in November when retailers have some of their biggest promotions of the year.Reitzes also noted that gift cards have grown in popularity “and those don’t show up until you actually use the gift card.”The Statistics Canada report followed a move by Hudson’s Bay Co. earlier this year to revise its 2016 financial year outlook downward, saying its sales during the holiday period did not improve enough.Sales were lower in nine of the 11 subsectors tracked as sales at motor vehicle and parts dealers fell 0.9 per cent.Excluding motor vehicle and parts dealers and gasoline stations, retail sales fell 1.4 per cent in December.Statistics Canada said clothing and clothing accessories stores fell 3.7 per cent, while general merchandise stores dropped 1.3 per cent. Electronics and appliance stores fell 2.3 per cent.Overall, retail sales in volume terms dropped 1.0 per cent.However, Reitzes was still positive for overall growth in the economy despite the lower than expected retail sales.“This likely isn’t part of a bigger negative trend that’s starting,” he said.“If we get more bad data then we’ll re-evaluate, but for not this kind of one negative data point, following a string of good numbers.” Retail sales fall 0.5 per cent in December as holiday shopping slowed read more

Drawing is back in fashion as British Museum offer pencils and paper

first_imgIn years gone by, she suggested, the skill of drawing had fallen out of fashion and considered secondary to “concept”, so famously associated with Marcel Duchamp  and his urinal “Fountain” and celebrated by the Young British Artists.Even curators are now getting in on the revival, with after-hours drawing classes for themselves.The Rodin drawing project was created by Melany Rose and Rebecca Penrose, who were in turn inspired by stories of the artist himself crediting sketching as the key to his sculpture.Rodin is known to have visited the museum in 1881, with evidences of his sketches on notepaper taken from the nearby Thackeray Hotel where he stayed.An activity pack, designed especially for families and provided free for visitors, includes a sketchbook, pencil, stencils, smudging cloth, rubber, activity sheet and artistic beret for inspiration. In 2016, the V&A found itself facing criticism after banning drawing at a major temporary exhibition due to “loan restrictions”.The British Museum will now ensure its examination of Rodin and the art of Ancient Greece sees objects given more space, allowing visitors to stand around them for longer to draw without impeding on others.It has previously taken steps to revive the art form, sending its most important drawings on a tour in 2016, after learning modern art students are “more likely to have a blog than a sketchbook”.Sarah Jaffray, who has been running a drawing project at the museum, said there had been a “huge surge” in art students wanting to study sketching, as a new generation rebelled against the last. Ms Penrose said the exhibition was designed with more space around the objects than usual, with the Parthenon sculptures placed on lower plinths to allow visitors to see their detail more clearly.Large windows will be left uncovered to allow the sculptures to be viewed in natural daylight, making it “an ideal exhibition for sketching”.“We hope that people who want to draw in the exhibition will feel empowered, especially as Rodin was himself so passionate about drawing,” she said.Sarah Jaffray, project officer for the Bridget Riley Art Foundation, said that when she started in 2014, drawing was “not a central part” of art students’ work.“We found a lot of resistance to the idea that drawing was something that was interesting still,” she said. “It’s the most basic form of art,” she said. “The hope is that once people start to do it, they see how expressive and complex it can be and appreciate what other artists have done.”Benedict Leigh, curator in the Middle East department, has created an after-hours drawing class for staff, to give them greater insight into their collection, with the Royal Drawing School coming in to run special courses.“The premise was that before photography, curators would have had to draw things for display. Drawing is a really important way of really looking and learning about the objects.“All museums are wanting to get people really looking at objects on display. From my perspective, I feel like you dwell on an object a lot more if you have a paper and pencil before you.“It’s something which is growing. You go into galleries and you see a lot more people drawing.”The exhibition, Rodin and the Art of Ancient Greece, runs from April 26 to July 29. It was once the staple of every artist’s practice, before falling out of fashion at the hands of conceptual art, formaldehyde cows and unmade beds.But drawing is officially back, according to the British Museum, as it plans to offer pencils and sketchbooks at a major exhibition for the first time.Staff at the museum said they had noticed a significant increase in art students and members of the public wanting to draw in its galleries, despite the proliferation of mobile phone cameras.As such, they are to provide pencils, paper, rubbers and smudging clothes at its new blockbuster Rodin exhibition, inspired by the artist’s own visits to draw in its galleries in the late 19th century.Curators hope to encourage the visiting public to look more closely at its objects, swapping a quick photograph, often uploaded onto social media, with the time it takes to sketch by hand.

But there’s something in the air: students are becoming more and more interested in drawing and its diversity as a medium.“There has been a huge surge of interest in drawing, in terms of artistic practice.There’s a greater interested in how they can bring drawing back into what they do.”Asked why attitudes had changed, she pointed to a generation of artists who had rejected traditional artistic training, including drawing, in favour of conceptual art.Now, she suggested, a new generation is rebelling with a return to the artistic process, adding: “There’s a desire to get back into making, to getting your hands dirty”.

National inspection plan for septic tanks published

first_imgwill be concentrated in areas where waste water discharges present a high risk to human health or the environment. Priority areas are based on levels of risk to sensitive water receptors, for example, drinking water sources, bathing waters, or pearl mussel beds.A grant scheme is to be set up to provide financial assistance to households whose septic tanks and other domestic wastewater treatment systems are said to require remediation following an inspection.The grant scheme will only apply to treatment systems which are the subject of an Advisory Notice issued by a water services authority following an inspection. Full details of the grants scheme will be set out in regulations later this year.Read: Ireland still paying €12k-a-day fine for septic tank compliance failure>Read: Hogan: 80% of liable households registered septic tanks by the deadline> THE NATIONAL INSPECTION plan for septic tanks has been published by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).The move was welcomed by Environment Minister Phil Hogan, who said that it will “underpin the risk-based inspection of septic tanks and other on-site treatment systems”.He thanked all of the householders who have registered their domestic waste water treatment systems, describing those who supported the legislation as the “silent majority”.He said that the “reckless members of the Opposition” “have already cost liable households an additional €45 as a result of their campaign of non-registration”, and asked them to “cease their irresponsible behaviour so that those households do not run the additional risk of legal action”.The European Commission said today that Ireland has now adopted all the measures necessary to ensure compliance with the 2009 Court of Justice judgement on the issue, which was welcomed by the Minister and the EPA.RegistrationMore than 410,000 liable households – 82 per cent of septic tank owners – have registered their systems to date.The Minister said that householders whose systems are being maintained and are not causing pollution have “nothing to fear”.Inspections will be carried out by fully trained and experienced local authority officials who will carry identification. Inspections will be scheduled with households at least 10 days in advance and will commence from the middle of 2013.The national inspection plan can be viewed on the EPA website.The EPA said that inspection:last_img read more

NBA 2K17s career mode will feature Creed team Michael B Jordan Aaron

first_imgI have to level with you folks, I’m not into sports video games. Or rather, I’m not into realistic sports video games. I love me some NBA Jam and Mario Tennis, but if I don’t enjoy watching actual sports why would I enjoy playing games that closely mimic actual sports? That said, simulation sports games are wildly popular, and lots of them are pretty good! NBA 2K, in particular, is by far the best modern basketball series. Not content embarrassing EA every year with its superior gameplay and horrifying facial scans, NBA 2K has now begun expanding its narrative ambitions. Here are the latest exciting details on NBA 2K17’s story mode.MyCareer is NBA 2K17’s single-player story mode. Players create a character and play through the life and season of rising new NBA star. That already sounds elaborate enough for sports game campaign, but wait until you hear the talent contributing to the storyline itself.Michael B. Jordan, star of films like Fruitvale Station and the upcoming Black Panther, provides the voice and likeness of Justice Young. Not to be confused with that canceled DC cartoon, Justice Young is one of your character’s teammates and has “a bit of a chip on his shoulder, having been passed over and second-guessed for most of his basketball career,” according to Senior Producer Ben Bishop in this Facebook blog post. Meanwhile, Aaron Covington, who has already worked with Jordan by scripting the Rocky reboot Creed, is writing the script. Other famous names include Matt Walsh and comedian Hannibal Buress.This isn’t the first time 2K has flirted with higher artistic aspirations for its flagship basketball franchise. Last year the publisher famously hired acclaimed and controversial filmmaker Spike Lee to craft a bizarrely theatrical tale for NBA 2K16. Not to go too deep into spoilers, but ghosts were involved. That Spike Lee joint wasn’t entirely successful or even congruent with the rest of the game, but it was an intriguing experiment that at least got me exponentially more interested in a genre I typically ignore.This seems to be the new direction for big sports games. FIFA 17’s story mode, The Journey, looks to be similarly narrative-heavy with an almost Mass Effect-style emphasis on player choice. Passing balls around just isn’t enough deep anymore.NBA 2K17 drops September 20. No word yet on the accuracy of virtual Steph Curry. Hopefully, this time players can finally take on Devil Basketball King Michael Jordan, teased in last year’s cinematic intro.last_img read more

Energy savings bill fails amid election politics

first_imgIn a recent story distributed by the Tribune Content Agency, reporter Curtis Tate notes that building the Keystone XL pipeline would not be likely to affect proposals to haul Bakken crude oil by rail to West Coast seaports, including Vancouver. Tesoro and Savage Cos. have proposed a facility at the Port of Vancouver, where oil could be received by train, stored and shipped by water to refineries.“North Dakota is producing a million barrels a day, nearly three-quarters of which move by rail, and could produce 2 million barrels a day in a few years. At most, Keystone would move 100,000 barrels of Bakken crude a day, barely a dent in the production,” Tate wrote. “What’s more, it would reach only Gulf Coast refineries, not the ones on the East and West coasts, which have become increasingly reliant on unit trains.”He also noted that the 1,700-mile Keystone XL pipeline from western Canada to the Gulf Coast would be completed long after energy, pipeline and rail companies made major investments in rail infrastructure, including loading and unloading terminals, tank cars, locomotives and track.WASHINGTON — A widely popular, bipartisan energy savings bill fell victim in the Senate on Monday to election-year politics and the Obama administration’s continued indecision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline.A procedural motion to end debate and bring the measure to a floor vote without amendments fell five votes short of the 60 votes needed for approval.last_img read more

General Electric sells Japan lending unit for 48 billion to Sumitomo Mitsui

first_imgGE Capital is exiting from Japan by selling its commercial lending business to Sumitomo Mitsui Finance and Leasing for approximately $4.8 billion, General Electric Co said on Tuesday.The deal will be concluded by April 2016. GE Capital will sell Capital Finance, Fleet Service and Vendor Finance, including employees of the business.Sumitomo Mitsui, a leading Japanese leasing company, is on  an expansion spree entering China, Southeast Asia and the US.A spokesman for GE Capital said in Tokyo that the company will be left with a small joint venture in Japan after the conclusion of the deal.  The deal is in line with the Fairfield-based conglomerate’s strategy to focus on industrial businesses and reduce its lending-related activities, according to AP.The largest change involves selling most of GE Capital’s assets, including $ 26.5 billion in real estate assets.”We continue to make quick progress on the sale of our international assets and are pleased to sell this business to a company that is committed to growth for our customers and employees,” said Keith Sherin, chairman and CEO, GE Capital.The sale will be subject to approval by regulatory authorities, the AP report added.The announcement comes a day before the annual review of GE’s performance and business outlook to be hosted by Jeff Immelt, chairman and CEO of GE.On Monday, shares of General Electric Co traded at their highest valuation in more than 10 years, marking a significant change, besides putting pressure on the firm to “show it can drive profits in line with its newfound market premium.”GE shares were trading at 20 times forward 12-months earnings projections, their highest level since 2005, according to Thomson Reuters data.”There is an expectation that GE, after years of not growing well, will now grow better than many of its peers,” said Scott Lawson, vice president of investment management firm Westwood Holdings Group.last_img read more

From Bhikkhu Matre to Biranchi Das

first_imgRejected three times by the National School of Drama, Bajpayee is now one of the most poignant actors in Bollywood. Known for his drastically antithetical roles, he is all set to take over the cinema halls this Friday with his upcoming fling Budhia: Born to Run.Based on the real-life incident, Budhia: Born to Run is the story of a boy called Budhia Singh from Odisha.  Budhia ran from Bhubaneswar to Puri at the age of four covering 65 kilometres in seven hours and two minutes thus listing himself as the world’s youngest marathon runner in the Limca book of records in the year 2006.  Also Read – American Crime Story 3 to chronicle Clinton’s impeachmentIn a recent press conference held in the national Capital, Bajpayee talked about the various aspects that surrounded the film. On being asked what inspired him to do this film, the actor replied, “I have been following this case ever since it came into the limelight. There was something very intriguing about this story that forced me to take up this film.”Bajpayee who will be essaying the role of Budhia’s coach, Biranchi Das, also talked about the challenges that he faced in essaying the role of the slain coach, whose murder is still a mystery.  Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe actor  took help from footage recorded when Budhia became famous to get into the skin of Biranchi’s character. Based on his understanding of Biranchi’s character, he was of the view that Biranchi was a very brash and headstrong person who wanted to make Budhia achieve the target he had set for him. His character deeply fascinated Bajpayee. “An actor has to be extremely brave and should possess a lot of courage in order to find all the characters within himself, it is quite a horrendous task to delve into a character”, said the Aligarh actor. He also talked about the most appealing aspect of the movie that is the relationship of the boy and the coach.” It is new and something very different from what you have seen before” said Bajpayee.The 47-year-old actor also expressed his concern over the deplorable situation of Budhia who lives in a sports hostel and barely manages to run for 10 or 15 kms because of the lack of mentorship. Biranchi’s sudden death brought a halt to Budhia’s athletic career.A doting father to a five-year old, Bajpayee firmly believes that everyone should live their dreams. He talked about the immense amount of talent in different parts of India that remains unnurtured. He urged the people and the government to form an association to train and mentor those children who have talent but due to the lack of resources they are miles away from fulfilling their dreams.Budhia: Born to Run will hit the screens on August 5. The movie aims to send out a message that no talent should go unnoticed.last_img read more

If youre looking for something beyond Tenerifes

first_imgIf you’re looking for something beyond Tenerife‘s nightclubs and water parks, it’s time to discover what else the island has to offer. Blogger Nicola Quinn gives us her top tips on how to holiday like a local.Brits flock to Tenerife both in summer and in low season. The popular holiday destination is best known for its touristy resorts such as Playa de Las Americas and Los Cristianos, but there’s another side to the Canary island – which is where Tenerife locals go on holiday themselevs. So take a peek at the secret side of the island and see just what you might be missing out on. Here is our guide on how to holiday like a local in Tenerife. 1. Go hikingTenerife is full of varied hiking and rambling trails, ranging from leisurely coastal walks which only take a couple of hours to complete to challenging mountain treks that take several days to follow. If you’re a hiking novice, the Sendero de los Sentidos (Path of the Senses) in the Anaga Rural Park is a great place to start. This route is made up of three 10-40 minute walks which guide you through the lush, laurel forests of the park to discover the fresh smells, earthy colours and magical sounds that hide within. 4. Join in with a fiestaWith 14 public holidays and fiestas each year, it’s almost impossible to visit Tenerife when there isn’t a party being thrown. Whilst the biggest fiesta of the year is the annual Santa Cruz carnival in February, there are plenty of smaller fiestas held in various towns and villages throughout the year. Even if you feel you stick out like a sore thumb, the free-flowing drinks, never-ending supply of local food, pounding live music, energetic dancing and friendly party atmosphere will soon get the better of you and you’ll fit in with the locals just fine.5. Dine on tapasAlthough tapas don’t originate in the Canary Islands, they’re one of the most popular local ways to dine out in Tenerife. Most Canarian restaurants on the island serve up their own unique variation of tapas, which means that even if you order the exact same dish from two restaurants, they’ll taste and look different. Papas arrugadas con mojo (salty boiled potatoes with sauce) is the most popular tapas dish, but for something less touristy, try chopitos (tiny whole squid deep-fried) or carne fiesta (spicy pork cooked with herbs and wine).6. Relax on a secluded beachLocals generally avoid the over-crowded beaches of the south in favour of more secluded bays, such as Playa Bollullo and the coves around La Tejita. During the summer months, even these beaches can get packed, but because they’re full of Canarians, you get a completely different atmosphere to the beaches in the tourist resorts. With a beachside bar serving ice cold beer, locals playing guitars and salsa-style dancing, a day at a secluded beach can easily turn into a full-blown fiesta. 2. Explore the Lava TubesWhilst Mount Teide takes centre stage when it comes to attractions in Tenerife, the Cueva del Viento (Cave of the Wind) in Icod de los Vinos is equally as impressive. This lava tube is the longest in the EU and the fourth longest in the world, stretching over 17km across three levels. Multilingual guided tours take place several times each day, giving you the chance to study the cave’s bizarre lava formations, ancient fossils and volcanic stalactites.3. Tour a vineyardWith an impressive number of award-winning wines produced in Tenerife, it’s no wonder locals love their vino. If you’d like see what all the fuss is about, sign up for a guided tour at one of the many vineyards on the island, such as the Cooperativa Cumbres de Abona in Arico and Bodega Cueva del Rey in Garachico. The multilingual tours end in generously-portioned wine tastings which are often accompanied with samples of local bread, jams and cheese. 7. Try stand up paddle boardingPaddle boarding is the latest water sport to make its mark on the Tenerife sports scene and it’s hugely popular amongst locals. The sport involves standing on a large flat surf board and using a long oar to paddle around – sounds simple enough until you take into consideration the waves which can appear out of nowhere. For a calm experience, try stand up paddle boarding in Los Cristianos, or for something more rough and challenging, you can’t beat El Médano.
