Five lingering questions from the end of Mark Normans criminal case

first_imgOTTAWA — Now that public prosecutors have decided to stay a breach-of-trust charge against Vice-Admiral Mark Norman, here are five questions Canadians don’t have full answers to:1) What was the evidence that got Norman’s charge stayed?The Public Prosecution Service of Canada said it received information in late March from Norman’s legal team that, upon review with the evidence the RCMP provided, led them to believe there was no reasonable prospect of conviction in the case. In court, the Crown said the new information provided greater context about Norman’s conduct and “revealed a number of complexities” prosecutors hadn’t previously known about. Defence lawyer Marie Henein suggested that it’s related to the previous Conservative government’s negotiations of the supply-ship deal with Chantier Davie shipyard.The information, however, hasn’t been made public. Nor was there an indication about why the information didn’t arrive sooner, or why it took another month before prosecutors decided to stay the case. At a press conference, Norman called the procurement system complicated and obtuse and an ugly process that is difficult to explain at the best of times.2) What was in that 60-page memo dealing with the Norman case that the top civil servant sent to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau last year?Norman’s legal team wanted to see what was in the memo, believing the information would help his defence. According to the government, it was information subject to solicitor-client privilege, which is the reason cited for keeping its contents secret. A witness in Norman’s pre-trial hearings suggested the memo actually originated with the Privy Council Office’s top legal officer but passed through Privy Council clerk Michael Wernick because that’s how memorandums from the public service formally get to the prime minister’s desk. But it’s not clear what the memo said specifically about Norman’s case.Of note is that Wernick has public said that in October 2018 he decided to let the court make the final call on what ordinarily secret cabinet information could be released to the defence team.3) Now that one legal fight is over, will Norman start another one?Although the government plans to cover Norman’s legal fees, he could sue the government in civil court over the handling of his case. The RCMP and government are the targets of a civil suit from Sen. Mike Duffy, who alleges his rights were abused in an investigation of his Senate expenses — which led to criminal charges of which he was acquitted.Henein said Wednesday that Norman’s criminal case had just ended minutes before and she and her client would make a decision at another time about whether to file a similar civil suit.4) Does Mark Norman go back to work? And in what role?Norman was suspended as the vice-chief of the defence staff at the start of 2017, and then officially shuffled out of the assignment and replaced by Lt.-Gen. Paul Wynnyk the following year. He has been in a “supernumerary position” within the defence chief’s office since June 2018.Norman said he is ready to go back to work — he joked about sorting out his building pass — but in what capacity is unclear. Gen. Jonathan Vance, chief of the defence staff, will make that decision.5) What happens to the other criminal trial over a shipbuilding leak?Matthew Matchett’s case remains open and the federal prosecution service reiterated Wednesday that it’s a wholly separate proceeding. Matchett was suspended in October 2018 from his job as a procurement officer at Public Services and Procurement Canada after his name came up in a submission Norman’s legal team made. He was charged in February with one count of breach of trust.Documents relevant to Norman’s case — including some that weren’t made public — could yet come out in Matchett’s trial. His case is in a similar state as Norman’s was before Wednesday, with the Crown and defence going over documents to determine what is relevant evidence.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

First Dance on stage at Brock

A Canadian play about same-sex marriage will be stepping onto the stage at Brock’s Studio Theatre this month.First Dance, a play set just months after same-sex marriage became legal in Canada, tells the story of a man about to marry his partner trying to devise the couple’s traditional first dance. Through ballroom dance and theatre, his journey as a gay man is explored through the challenge of creating a dance for a ritual that has no history.The play will be performed Sept. 29 and 30 at 8 p.m. by the Tottering Biped Theatre company. Brock alumni Jeff Fox stars in the play written by Lisa O’Connell and co-starring Trevor Copp.O’Connell got the idea to pen a play after attending a small LGTB-oriented performance festival where she saw Fox and Copp, two male champion ballroom dancers, demonstrate ‘Liquid Lead,’ a unique dance that the two developed in which the lead and follow switch seamlessly throughout the dance. It’s a form that they view as more in keeping with a modern relationship of give and take as opposed to the classic male/lead and female/follow formula.Over the course of a year, Lisa interviewed Trevor and Jeff as they spoke of their experiences as gay adolescents, ballroom dancers and friends. Those interviews became the raw material for First Dance.To reserve tickets, email read more

Ferry Dock In Skagway Sinks

first_imgThe AMHS dock in Skagway sank overnight. (Photo courtesy Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities)The Skagway ferry terminal dock is fully submerged, according to state transportation officials.Download AudioDOT spokesman Jeremy Woodrow says an engineer is on his way to Skagway to find out what happened. Apparently the dock started to sink overnight and by early this morning it was totally underwater.The 160 foot by 120 foot dock is about 12-feet deep. It is made of 24 individual concrete chambers.“The words that the engineer used is he’s perplexed,” Woodrow says. “We actually have inspected everyone of those individual chambers in the last year and there was no indication of any wear.”Woodrow says the cause of the collapse remains a mystery until an engineer gets on site and a diver gets an underwater look.No ferries are scheduled into Skagway today (Thursday), but the LeConte is to sail there tomorrow. Woodrow says marine highway officials are working out a plan.This is a breaking story. Check back for details.Note:  Previous reports indicated the dock had collapsed. That connotes structural failure and DOT’s Woodrow says the extent of the damage is still unknown.last_img read more

New Covey Cafe gives atrisk youth a chance to shine

first_imgTobias Lazer, a youth barista at Covey Cafe. (Photo by Kendalyn McKisick.)For the next few weeks, Alaska Public Media is collaborating with residents of Covenant House to write stories about young people and finding jobs. It’s part of our project Alaska @ Work. Find out more here.This story was written and produced by Josh Watson and Daytan Long.At Covenant House, a new coffee shop is trying to launch people into the workforce and adulthood.An espresso machine expels steam in a loud gush as Katie Thaggard teaches an intern to make coffee at the new Covey Cafe inside the Covenant House, a youth crisis center in downtown Anchorage.She bangs the heavy metal filter filled with coffee grounds against the counter and explains, “What you’re doing there is knocking all the air out.”The cafe officially opened in January but Thaggard, the cafe supervisor, started training young people there about a month earlier.“The intent is to give everybody great coffee. We all need coffee everyday,” she jokes. “But it really is to train kids so they can go out and get jobs other places.”The internships are six weeks long but could be extended or discontinued depending on how committed the interns are to the project. Thaggard says they learn skills they can use elsewhere, such as working under supervisors and with other employees. She’s seen her interns grow in their skills.Katie Thaggard manages the new Covey Cafe and teaches youth interns. (Photo by Kim Miller.)“Definitely a lot more confidence in themselves and what they’re doing,” she says. “A lot more ease speaking with strangers that just come in, people they aren’t familiar with has been a big change.”Tobias Lazer, a youth intern, says he wasn’t really interested in the job at first but it seemed like a good opportunity.“As somebody who has maybe some time management and stress management issues and is going to school, a job where they could be a lenient or they are okay with me working kinda limited hours, really sounded ideal,” Lazer explained.Then it turned out doing things like managing multiple orders felt natural and comfortable to him.“Once I realized that I liked making coffee, liked this kind of career path,” Lazer says he became much more enthusiastic. “And I’m kind of building customer service skills as well as learning to make coffee which is nice, because I’ve been kind of antisocial in the past.”Lazer is training to manage the Covey Cafe and plans to use these skills to work at another coffee shop in the future.last_img read more

BNP to hold May Day rally

first_imgLogo of BNPDenied permission for a workers’ rally at Suhrawardy Udyan, the BNP’s labour wing Jatiyatabadi Sramik Dal has decided to bring out a rally in the city on Tuesday, marking the May Day.Sramik Dal general secretary Nurul Islam Khan announced the programme at press briefing at the BNP’s Nayapaltan central office on Monday, reports UNB.He said they earlier sought permission from the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) through a letter for holding a meeting at Suhrawardy Udyan over the International Workers’ Day on Tuesday. “They still didn’t respond to it.”Under the circumstances, Khan said, “We’ve decided to take out a workers’ rally from in front of our Nayapaltan central office at 11am on the May Day.”He said they have already informed the DMP authorities about bringing out the rally.Speaking at the programme, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said it is regrettable that the government did not allow the Sramik Dal to hold the meeting at Suhrawardy Udyan on the International Workers’ Day. “They didn’t give the permission as the word Jatiyatabadi is tagged with Sramik Dal.”He said Awami League does not allow its opponents to hold any public rally as it fears people and their gatherings. “It’s an anti-people and anti-workers government.”Rizvi strongly condemned and protested the government’s decision of not allowing Sramik Dal to hold meeting.Earlier on 21 April, BNP standing committee member Nazrul Islam Khan announced that Sramik Dal would hold a workers’ meeting at historic Suhrawardy Udyan in the city on 1 May.The International Workers’ Day, falls on 1 May, will be observed in Bangladesh as elsewhere across the world on Tuesday amid various programmes highlighting the worker’s rights and safety at workplaces.last_img read more

UK angered Russia blaming Putin for poisoning spy

first_imgBritain`s prime minister Theresa May visits the city where former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with a nerve agent, in Salisbury, Britain on 15 March 2018. ReutersBritain provoked Russia’s wrath on Friday by directly implicating Vladimir Putin in the poisoning attack on an ex-double agent, with the Kremlin saying the claims were “shocking and unforgivable”.The war of words between Moscow and London over the nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy escalated as Britain’s Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said his government’s “quarrel” was with Putin rather than the Russian people.“We think it overwhelmingly likely that it was his decision to direct the use of a nerve agent on the streets of the UK, on the streets of Europe, for the first time since the Second World War,” Johnson said in London.Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov responded saying Johnson’s claims violated all rules of diplomatic protocol.Linking Putin to the attack on Sergei Skripal, who moved to Britain in a 2010 spy swap, “is nothing but shocking and unforgivable behaviour from the point of view of diplomacy”, Peskov told Russian news agencies.The crisis has unravelled in the thick of Russia’s presidential campaign, with Putin expected to win a fourth Kremlin term on Sunday.In a rare joint statement, the leaders of Britain, France, Germany and the United States on Thursday condemned the attack on Skripal and his daughter Yulia-both in a critical but stable condition in hospital-as an “assault on UK sovereignty”.They said there “no plausible alternative explanation” for the use of the Soviet-designed nerve agent other than Russian responsibility.Police officer Nick Bailey, who initially attended to the Skripals, was also in hospital in a critical state, though conscious, but his health has improved and he is now in a stable condition, England’s health service said Friday.Alexander Yakovenko, Russia’s ambassador to Britain, told Channel 4 television that Britain’s response to the attack was a “gross provocation”.He branded the British investigation “untransparent and secret”, adding that there was “no proof” that Skripal was gravely ill.Moscow opens probes -The Kremlin has vehemently denied it had a hand in the poisoning of its former spy in the English city of Salisbury on March 4.London’s key allies have closed ranks against Putin after British Prime Minister Theresa May announced the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats and suspended high-level contacts, among other measures.On Friday, Russia said it could hit back at Britain at “any minute” with its own raft of punitive measures.The Kremlin has indicated it would expel British diplomats in a riposte to London’s move as well as adopt other measures that would “most suit Moscow’s interests”.“All the steps will be well thought out,” Peskov said.Meanwhile the Investigative Committee, which reports to Putin, opened a probe into the “attempted premeditated murder” of Skripal’s daughter, a Russian national, which it said had been “carried out in a way that was dangerous to the public”.At the same time a separate probe was opened into the mysterious death of Nikolai Glushkov, a Russian exile who was found dead at his London home this week.London’s Metropolitan Police later announced their own murder investigation, saying Glushkov had suffered compression of the neck.Scepticism in Russia -Putin has barely weighed in on the row, telling a BBC reporter this week: “Sort things out from your side and then we will discuss this with you.”Russia insists it had no motive to target Skripal with what Britain says was a highly potent Soviet-designed nerve agent called Novichok, in the first such attack in Europe since World War II.Skripal had taken his daughter, who was on a visit from Moscow, out for lunch before they both collapsed on a bench.Many Russians remain sceptical that the state was responsible and some analysts have not ruled out the involvement of ordinary criminals or rogue agents.The incident revived memories of the fate of Alexander Litvinenko, a Russian dissident who died of Polonium radiation poisoning in a 2006 attack in Britain that London blamed on Moscow.EU president Donald Tusk said Friday that the bloc would discuss the attack at a Brussels summit next week, adding it would send a “clear message”.‘We don’t want Cold War’ -Vil Mirzayanov, a Soviet-era chemist who helped create Novichok but later revealed the existence of Moscow’s classified programme, said terrorists could not produce it.“To create its components one needs powerful labs and very experienced personnel which only exist in several countries,” the now US-based whistleblower told opposition newspaper Novaya Gazeta.Britain on Friday said that it had invited the chemical weapons watchdog OPCW to take a sample of the poison for analysis, under Article 8 of the Chemical Weapons Convention.May warned more measures could follow against Russia, noting that the US-led NATO alliance and the UN Security Council had discussed the attack.NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Friday the alliance did not want a return to Cold War hostilities with Russia while expressing support for Britain’s stance.“We don’t want a new Cold War,” he told BBC radio.last_img

Tegra K1 demonstrates a step away from smartphones for Nvidia

first_imgAs they did last year, Nvidia took to the stage at CES this year to show off their next generation of mobile processors. While the new Tegra K1 is nothing short of mind blowing based on the specs, it shows that Nvidia has stepped away from the smartphone game for a little while.To say that Nvidia has been an underdog when it comes to mobile processors is a bit of an understatement. The Tegra line of chips has always touted gaming prowess over anything else, and while that earned them a small group of loyal fans it didn’t do much to sell hardware.As the US market shifted to LTE, Nvidia struggled to provide a compelling reason to use Tegra over Qualcomm’s Snapdragon. Rather than continue to struggle in that space, it looks like Nvidia is approaching mobile from a whole new perspective now.The Tegra K1 isn’t just an improvement over the Tegra 4, it’s a whole new class of mobile processor. Nvidia has taken the Kepler architecture that they originally designed for desktops and applied it to a mobile chipset, with results that they claim beat out the previous generation gaming consoles. While it may not sound impressive to say that a processor in 2014 can top a processor built in 2005, when you consider that you’ll effectively be able to hold that processing power in a mobile tablet you begin to see why this is a big deal.Nvidia is hoping this processor will power the next wave of gaming devices, regardless of what OS they are running. This includes Windows 8.1, Android, and maybe even a 4K television or two. They want this to be in the next Ouya, the next Shield, and the next Surface, regardless of who is actually building them.What they seem to not care about with this design is the smartphone, as demonstrated by the lack of native LTE support. While the chipset has already been certified by AT&T and Vodaphone, it is clear that mobile networks will exist on a separate chip. While that works for devices with nice big batteries, it doesn’t typically work out well for smartphones.Nvidia leaving the smartphone space, even temporarily, does little to affect the current mobile landscape anyway. Qualcomm has dominated the smartphone space for the last two years, and their most recent push into mobile radios that work on almost every network show that they are not going anywhere.Intel has made some positive inroads over the past year, and with Asus now sticking their processors in almost everything for the coming year it is possible that we’ll see someone actually compete with the Snapdragon army this year. As for Nvidia, they want to focus on delivering a quality gaming experience, which for the moment means leaving smartphones behind.last_img read more

Back to basics Part 1 – Updating your GNULinux system

first_imgBack to basics Part 1 – Updating your GNU/Linux system by Mike Turcotte-McCusker on February 01, 2018 in Linux – Last Update: February 01, 2018 – 56 commentsSo, it’s been suggested to me that I start a “Linux basics” series, and I think it’s a wonderful suggestion! That said, to me the most logical starting point after an installation (which there will be more in-depth articles to come about!) would be learning how to update your system; as most distributions are not up-to-date when freshly installed.Most distributions are relatively similar in their updating methods, consisting of either a GUI tool and or terminal commands. Typically, how the process works is two step:update the repository package listingsupdate any packages that are of a lower version than those in the repositoryUpdating your GNU/Linux systemMost distributions will have a “Software updater” or “Update Manager” in the program menus, which are fairly straightforward really, so I won’t touch base on them much in this. The graphical update manager displays available updates and while you can go through the list of available updates and make modifications to what you want installed, it is often as easy as clicking on a button to get the update process started. This way of updating may appeal to users switching from Windows even though the Update Manager’s on Linux display more information than Windows Update.Instead, I’d prefer to show you how to use the terminal for the task of updating, as I find it significantly faster for routine management.For example, to update on any Debian based system such as Ubuntu / Linux Mint, the two commands, in order, are:sudo apt updatesudo apt upgradeIf there are any upgrades needed, simply typing “y” and then pressing enter, will update all needed packages. Very quick, very simple.On OpenSUSE the process is fairly simple as well:sudo zypper updateFedora uses yet another different package manager, and so a different commandssudo dnf update (if using Fedora 22 or newer)sudo yum update (if older)Archlinux / Manjaro:sudo pacman -SyuGentoo is a little more hardcore, but that’s to be expected:sudo emerge –syncsudo emerge -avuDN –with-bdeps y @worldsudo etc-updateThere are other commands many Gentoo users may choose to do a variation of afterwards, but I would call these three essential.Last wordsLearning to update your machine via CLI is very simple as you can see, and is an easy introduction to using the terminal, and help lower fear of it.Now you: What’s your preferred updating method, on which distro?SummaryArticle NameBack to basics Part 1 – Updating your GNU/Linux systemDescriptionMike looks at the two available options that Linux users and admins have to update Linux systems. He concentrates on Terminal commands as the graphical update managers are mostly self-explanatory.Author Mike TurcottePublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
