Sandra Oh Its profoundly frustrating how slow real change is

first_imgIt’s something Oh is all too aware of.Asked by news.com.au during the promotional trail for Killing Eve, before her historic Emmy nomination today, whether she had seen much change or momentum in terms of Asian representation on American TV, she said: “The change is slow, and I mean it in the most profound way in how profoundly frustrating it is and has been.“I’ve been in this industry for a long time and what I’ve seen and experienced is how long it takes to make actual real change — and it’s not the real change our community is needing and seeking.“Where is our Black Panther? I know our community wants that and our community is impatient for it.”Oh stars in the critically acclaimed Killing Eve. Picture: BBC America via APSource:APOh said that Asian-Americans — Oh is actually Canadian but has lived in the US for many years — don’t carry the same “burden in terms of the safety for our bodies” as African-Americans and Americans of Latino descent do, but at the heart of Asian representation, it’s about visibility.

Her performance as Eve Polastri in the BBC America series, airing locally on ABC, has won wide acclaim from critics and audiences.But if you’re thinking that surely it can’t be right that she’s the first, that it didn’t happen until 2018, be assured that she is. And that is in large part due to the scarcity of roles for actors of Asian descent on American TV — especially lead roles. Twitterlast_img read more

Ontario refuses to give liver transplant for MMIWG advocate Delilah Saunders

first_imgAnnette FrancisAPTN NewsDelilah Saunders, a young Inuk woman from Labrador who has also been an advocate for missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls is in a fight for her own life in Ottawa.Family and friends say Saunders, 26, whose sister was Loretta Saunders, a university student who was murdered, is in need of a liver transplant.“What the doctors are saying is that she’s very sick and that she’s needing an intervention that they’re not willing or at least from an organizational policy level, they’re not willing to give her,” said friend Kelly Morrissey.“And that intervention would be a liver transplant.Saunders is the younger sister of Loretta Saunders who was murdered in Halifax in 2014.Since her murder, she has been a strong voice for murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls and was a member of the MMIWG family advisory circle.Delilah was also a land and water protector.Last year she participated in a hunger strike over the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric project in her home of Labrador.Saunders was admitted to the hospital on Dec. 9.“She was complaining of nausea,” said Morrissey. “She was definitely really sick at that time, but she was ambulatory, she was walking around, she was talking, obviously in a lot of distress, but we had no idea that it would, we would be at this point here today.”Saunders has been diagnosed with acute liver failure due to the use of Tylenol in conjunction with alcohol consumption.“She’s not eligible because of this policy where they do not give people with a history of substance abuse livers,” said friend Rebecca Moore. “Essentially they told us her livers failed she needs a new one and she’s not going to get it.”Her friends are advocating for a liver transplant to save her life.They have a petition demanding that Saunders be accepted as a liver transplant candidate.“What we’re hoping for is to put pressure on Trillium Gift of Life Foundations that controls all the policies around organs donation here in Ontario,” said Moore. “And what we’re what we’re hoping for is we want them to waive the policy for Delilah and to accept her as a patient.”The Gift of Life Network said its policy on six months abstinence from alcohol is a commonly used protocol.The petition has 3,000 signatures on it according to Saunders’ friends.afrancis@aptn.calast_img read more

Anniversary of residential school apology brings mixed emotions

first_imgFormer prime minister Stephen Harper apologized to students of Indian residential schools in 2007. Kathleen MartensAPTN NewsFred Thomas says residential school ruined his life.“There were 14 suicides in my family – can the government explain that and apologize?” he said.So Thomas won’t be cutting any cake to mark Monday’s 10-year anniversary of the government’s official apology.“Nothing much has changed,” added the former student from northwestern Ontario.“When you apologize you follow up with action. Just like when you’re drunk; when you’re sober you apologize to your family for your actions.”Mary Aubichon agrees.She attended a Métis residential school in northern Saskatchewan that was not recognized by the federal government. So she was unable to apply for the financial compensation offered First Nations’ survivors.“This has been going on too long for us,” she said of her groups’ struggle for damages.“Somebody’s stalling…it seems like we’re running into walls here all the time.”So that’s her message to Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians alike – follow up the words “I’m sorry” with action.“It’s time that we get recognized,” she said.The apology was part of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement that resolved a class-action lawsuit filed by residential school survivor and former Assembly of First Nations national chief Phil Fontaine.It was the largest class-action settlement in Canadian history.It provided money for commemoration, healing and compensation for 86,000 First Nations children forced to attend the schools between 1879 and 1996.And it established the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), which gathered survivor testimony to help Canadians understand the damage inflicted.“In that short space of time a lot has happened but there’s still so much to do,” said survivor Garnet Angeconeb of the last decade.“We are just beginning in many ways.”Marilyn Courchene of Manitoba says she was five when an Indian agent threatened her parents with jail if they didn’t send her to the local day school.She says Canada has more to apologize for.Students of day schools – who allege they were taunted, beaten and sexually abused despite sleeping in their own beds at night – haven’t settled their class-action lawsuit with the government.And victims of forced adoption to non-Indigenous families – known as the ‘60s Scoop – are still fighting.“They have to say, ‘We will work on our racism towards Indigenous nations’,” Courchene said in a telephone interview.Asked if there’s any legacy of the last 10 years, Angeconeb points to the TRC’s 94 Calls to Action and the goal of renewing Canada’s relationship with Indigenous peoples.“It has brought many conversations to many dining room tables across the country,” he said from Ontario.“That’s the spirit of reconciliation at work.”last_img read more

GM Unifor expected to resume talks aimed at ending strike at CAMI

first_imgINGERSOLL, Ont. – General Motors and the union representing about 2,500 striking workers at the CAMI assembly plant in Ingersoll, Ont., are expected to resume talks today aimed at ending a strike.The members of Unifor Local 88 walked off the job Sept. 17 as negotiators worked to have GM designate the CAMI plant as the lead producer of the Equinox SUV, which is also produced in Mexico.The union said last Thursday that the two sides had “worked through a lot of the contract language” but remained far apart on job security and economic issues.Unifor also said it was awaiting a response from GM on the outstanding issues and thaty both sides agreed to pause the talks over the long holiday weekend and reconvene today.Ontario Economic Development Minister Brad Duguid said Friday that he had spoken with both sides and that neither had asked for government support to keep the Equinox lines in the province.Duguid said the dispute was “rippling through” Ontario’s supply chain economy and urged both parties to reach an agreement.Dias dismissed GM’s latest contract offer last week as “fluff,” saying it still allowed the company to shift resources away from the Ingersoll plant.last_img read more

Bondrating agency gives Nova Scotia its highest credit rating yet

first_imgHALIFAX – The Nova Scotia government says Standard and Poor’s has upgraded the province’s long-term credit rating to its highest ever.In a news release, the province says the rating was upgraded from A+ to AA-, with a stable outlook.The province says the bond rating agency cited “strong fiscal management,” and that Standard and Poor’s credit report notes Nova Scotia is expected to outperform most Canadian provinces in the next two years.In March, the government tabled its 2018-19 budget, which projected a third consecutive surplus of $29.4 million.Much of the fiscal progress came after contract strife with public sector unions, including teachers and health care workers.In a statement, Premier Stephen McNeil says the government has “worked hard with Nova Scotians” to put the province on the right fiscal path.“More people are working in Nova Scotia than ever before, exports are booming and our population is at an all-time high,” said McNeil.“This credit rating is yet another sign that we are moving in the right direction as we build a stronger province together, where everyone can grow and succeed.”last_img read more

TREB CEO concerned about homeowner info being posted online after data release

first_imgTORONTO – The Toronto Real Estate Board is “pressing ahead” with the Competition Bureau’s demand to make home sales data available on realtors’ password-protected websites, but that doesn’t mean the board’s concerns around privacy are gone.In his first interview since the Supreme Court of Canada refused in August to hear TREB’s seven-year fight to keep the numbers under wraps — effectively forcing them to be made public — the board’s chief executive officer John DiMichele told The Canadian Press, “the element of privacy in our opinion hasn’t been settled completely yet.”DiMichele is particularly concerned because he claims to have seen evidence of brokers’ remarks about homeowners being posted online, information that is not included in the home sales data feed TREB had to make available to realtors last Tuesday.“If someone is receiving this data, we have a duty and responsibility to find out if it is coming out of our system because… (they) will say things like elderly gentleman, hard of hearing, knock loud, or children home alone between 3 and 5 p.m.,” he said, noting that codes to access and secure properties could also be included in the remarks.DiMichele wouldn’t reveal how he discovered such violations, but said they had been “brought to our attention” recently.He also refused to discuss in detail what kind of action will be taken against anyone who is caught posting unauthorized information or home sales data without password protections — conditions mandated in a Competition Tribunal ruling that came into effect recently, after the Competition Bureau argued that TREB’s refusal to release the data was anti-competitive and stifled innovation.“I can’t comment about specific cases, but if people are doing these things, we are certainly going to contact them, if they are contactable because right now my understanding is that some of these websites don’t have identifying information,” DiMichele said.“Where are they getting the data? If they are getting it from public records, just let us know. If they are getting it from another source that is not TREB, then there is not much for us to say on that, but if it they are posting this data of a private nature, we certainly have to take initiative.”In early September, the board sent cease-and-desist letters to real estate companies warning it will revoke data access and TREB memberships or bring legal action against members it believes are violating its user agreement by posting sales numbers online “in an open and unrestricted fashion.”The board’s lawyer Brian Facey previously said in an email to The Canadian Press that the letters were an attempt to find out the source of the members’ numbers and “ensure no one has breached their contracts with TREB.”TREB has never said how many letters it sent, but real estate companies Zoocasa and HouseSigma Inc. said they had received letters and had stripped their websites of the data until Sept. 18, when the TREB feed was allowed to be posted.Others, including real estate website Bungol, left the numbers up without password protections.Several realtors who applied for access to the TREB feed complained last week that they weren’t granted access as soon as it became available and many said they were still waiting to get their hands on the numbers as late as last Friday.The board has received about 1,000 requests for access to the feed from the board’s 50,000 members, DiMichele said, but only about 600 of those requests have been fulfilled so far.“Not every delay is on TREB’s side,” he said.“We are fulfilling them on a regular basis, but sometimes the other side is not prepared or we have people that think they want to do this, so they submit an application and go through the process and then they decide not to proceed, but we are working through it the best we can.”Follow @Tara_Deschamps on Twitter.last_img read more

US construction spending down 01 in October

first_imgWASHINGTON — Spending on U.S. construction projections fell 0.1% in October, the third consecutive monthly decline, as weakness in home building and non-residential construction offset a rebound in government projects.The Commerce Department says the October decline matched a similar 0.1% drop in September and followed a 0.4% fall in August. Construction has been weak since peaking in May with declines in four of the five months since that time, reflecting in large part the struggles that home builders faceIn October, home building fell 0.5%, while non-residential construction retreated 0.3% as declines in construction of medical facilities and shopping centres offset a gain in office construction. Government spending was up 0.8% in October, a rebound that reflected gains in both state and local projects and federal spending.Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Postnups growing in popularity say lawyers who share insight into the agreements

first_imgTORONTO — When Canadian heart throb Justin Bieber secretly married model Hailey Baldwin last year, tabloids said they didn’t bother with a fancy ceremony or a pre-nuptial agreement to protect their millions.“He was an idiot not to get a (pre-nup), but we have seen Justin do a lot of stupid stuff,” joked Farrah Kohorst, a Calgary-based lawyer specializing in family law.But according to Kohorst, 24-year-old Bieber — estimated to be worth $265 million — and 22-year-old Baldwin — rumoured to be worth $3 million — aren’t out of ways to keep their future earnings protected from each other, if they desire.Kohorst and other experts say the key to safeguarding assets when you didn’t sign a pre-nup lies in a little-known agreement that is growing in popularity: a post-nup.Often called a marriage contract under the Family Law Act, a post-nup can be signed before or after a wedding and can include clauses to decide what will happen to money, real estate, inheritances and pets if a marriage is dissolved.Kohorst and other lawyers say most people are prompted to sign a post-nuptial agreement at the behest of their parents or because they want to embark on a financial venture their spouse isn’t keen on sharing the risk for, they suddenly snag a large inheritance or gift they want to keep from their partner or they simply ran out of time to draw up a pre-nup while preparing for their big day.“I did one recently where the husband found out about a bunch of debt the wife had run up and he wanted nothing to do with that because it wasn’t disclosed to him,” said Kohorst.“I really pump these to my friends and family because we are looking at 40 per cent divorce rate and 60 per cent common-law breakdown (in Canada).”She often recommends couples who are trying to figure out what to put in a post-nup focus on their goals and think about whether children, new businesses or windfalls are headed their way. If someone agrees to waive their spousal support and not share property that is jointly held, Kohorst often suggests a settlement where the amount of money they receive for the dissolution of their marriage is based on the length of the relationship or is a portion of the net value of their assets.She also advises clients to look out for conduct provisions — clauses surrounding infidelity, weight gain and a minimum number of times a week or month a spouse has to agree to sex. They’re popular in the U.S., but are usually frowned upon and often not relevant to legal rights in Canada, she adds.Kohorst also said most clients don’t realize post-nups aren’t boilerplate documents that can be drawn up in a few days on the cheap. Most take more than one meeting and require several financial disclosures.“There is a difference between marrying somebody you think is worth $1 million, when they are really worth $50 million,” she said. “You might get a different deal.”In rush scenarios, Kohorst has seen post-nups come together in six to eight weeks and in situations with prominent families with plenty to protect, she’s charged up to $60,000 to represent her client.However, most people will spend a few thousand dollars for agreements that take three to four months to draw up.Kohorst pushes her clients to avoid signing them the same month as their wedding because if one is signed too close to the wedding, it can later be argued the agreement was made under duress. If clients insist, she adds a clause noting both parties agree they are not committing to the agreement under duress.Rick Peticca, a Toronto-based senior associate specializing in family law, said he recommends post-nups when clients are keen on getting a pre-nup but have six months or less until their wedding, putting themselves in a danger zone for duress arguments.He suggests signing an agreement well before the six-month mark to avoid those troubles and make use of negotiating advantages you have before tying the knot.“You have an option not to proceed with the wedding,” he said. “You lose that leverage after the wedding has occurred.”He has also seen people pursuing post-nups long after their marriage began in hopes of using the agreements as a “security blanket” against situations that recently arose.“I have a case right now where my client’s spouse was unfaithful and while they work things out, they want something in place,” he said, noting that post-nups should be made to fit each person’s unique situation and concerns.“Before someone just agrees to anything they really need to think of the consequences. It’s not just trying to satisfy your partner. There are real life consequences, so they need to ensure their views are properly reflected.”Tara Deschamps, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Pipeline decision too close to chastise BC at western premiers meeting Notley

first_imgEDMONTON, A.B. – Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says while other western premiers meeting in Yellowknife will be talking about how to spend money, she’ll be working in Alberta figuring out how to earn it.Notley says she is not attending the meeting on Wednesday because her time is better spent making sure the Trans Mountain pipeline project goes ahead.She says Alberta needs to be able to pay for important programs to be discussed at the meeting such as pharmacare. She says it’s not business as usual because B.C. Premier John Horgan is trying to shut down the pipeline and take $15 billion out of the Canadian economy.This is about more than a pipeline.It’s about our country’s ???????? ability to create jobs and attract investment.We have to show that we can make decisions that respect the rule of law, that we can get things done, and @KeepCanWorking.#ConfidenceinCanada #ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/d61R7xXpPX— Rachel Notley (@RachelNotley) May 22, 2018She says it might be worth going to the meeting to chastise Horgan if a decision on Trans Mountain were still a long way off, but the deadline is too close now for her to do that.Owner Kinder Morgan has set May 31 as the date by which it needs to have enough certainty to proceed with the pipeline’s expansion.Alberta sees the pipeline as key to moving bitumen from the province to the coast and from there to lucrative overseas markets.last_img read more
