Balarama Holness wants bilingual status for Montreal
Balarama Holness wants bilingual status for the city of Montreal The candidate for mayor of Montreal Balarama Holness asks for a bilingual status for the city of Montreal, at the same time as it throws a paving stone into the pond in the middle of a national holiday. According to him, Anglophonic and allophonic citizens should have better access to services in English in the city, and companies should be able to carry out their activities in both languages to ensure that the city has a better reputation on the international stage. “The reality on the ground is that Montreal is a multicultural and bilingual city. That’s just the reality, says the former Alouettes player, who will run for mayor of Montreal on November 7 at the head of his party, the Mouvement Montreal. Balarama Holness decided to take this position in the wake of Bill 96 on the official and common language of Quebec and Federal Bill C-32 on official languages. He particularly criticizes the Legault government for its use of the derogatory clause to protect Bill 96 from legal challenges. “To me, the fact that we immediately suspend our rights without letting the courts legislate […], it is very problematic. “As for the Bill C-32, it will create ‘another class of Quebec residents: English-speaking minorities,'” he said. The first article in the Charter of the City of Montreal states that Montreal is a French-speaking city, but according to Balarama Holness, this statute should be amended to make Montreal a “multicultural and bilingual city”. Remember that according to the Charter for the French Language, Montreal, like the other municipalities in Quebec, is required to write all its texts and documents in French. These can also be written in English, but this is not a requirement. However, when a citizen communicates in English with the city, the latter can approach him in that language. Several municipalities on the island of Montreal have bilingual status, but in Montreal only the Pierrefonds-Roxboro district has such status.
GNL Quebec could threaten Belarusian survival, according to Ottawa
GNL Quebec could threaten Belarus’ survival GNL Quebec risks posing a serious threat to the survival and recovery of whales in St. Lawrence, experts from Fisheries and Oceans Canada conclude. They also believe that the spokesman underestimated the impact of his project on this endangered species. Parks Canada, for its part, believes that maritime traffic associated with this gas facility could compromise its mandate to preserve Quebec’s only marine park. As part of the assessment of the Énergie Saguenay liquid plant project by GNL Québec, the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (AEIC) has just published a “final warning” from Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), but also Park Parks Canada. The two documents emphasize the risk the project represents for the beluga and the ecosystem of Saguenay – St. Lawrence Marine Park. Experts point out that industrial maritime traffic associated with the export of liquefied natural gas (LNG) will increase noise pollution in the Saguenay Fjord and the St. Lawrence estuary. In addition, noise and disturbance in Saguenay will affect a sector that is currently not very noisy and is visited by women and young whites, ie a particularly vulnerable part of the population of this species is at risk. According to DFO, the initiators of GNL Quebec have poorly assessed the risk for Saguenay Energy on beluga. In its report published in March last year, the Office of Public Hearings on the Environment (BAPE) estimates that “any increase in maritime traffic projected into the Saguenay River will be contrary to the restoration work” in beluga. Parks Canada, for its part, emphasizes that “the increase in industrial port activities near and upstream of the marine park and the subsequent increase in the risk to ecosystems is a source of great concern”. In a press release on Wednesday, GNL Quebec accused researchers from Fisheries and Oceans Canada of counteracting “innovation in the maritime sector”.
Relief from travel restrictions hailed, but not enough
Relief from travel restrictions praised, but not enough The end of the mandatory quarantine for fully vaccinated travelers returning to Canada is good news for airlines and travel agents, but less so for the Quebec tourism industry. While sales of members of the Association des agents de agents de voyages du Québec (AAVQ) were already around 15% compared to the period before the pandemic before the measure was introduced, they fell to around 2% after the introduction of the measure. day quarantine at the hotel in February. Mandatory hotel stay, which easily costs over $ 1000 in total per person, was a strong deterrent. The National Airlines Council of Canada, for its part, on Monday called in a press release “a clear and complete restart plan for international travel” so that companies can plan the resumption of their activities. The availability of international flights from Quebec will also increase in the coming months. On July 30, Transat continues to offer flights to the United States, Europe and the South. The owner of the Transat Tourism Chair, Marc-Antoine Vachon, believes that it is currently difficult to predict the effect of the new reductions, combined with an increase in the offer of flights, on ticket prices. Meanwhile, Monday’s announcement could put the Canadian tourism industry at a disadvantage, according to Marc-Antoine Vachon, as Canadian travelers leave the country while foreign tourists are still prevented from entering Canada. This condemns the Canadian round table on travel and tourism. “Canadian hospitality companies need international travelers to survive,” the organization said in a statement. For its part, the Canadian Association of Travel Agencies believes that a negligible proportion of travelers will choose a foreign destination in the coming months. The director of the organization for Quebec, Manon Martel, demands that financial aid programs therefore continue to support the travel industry, because the business does not return to normal at any time.
In Pasadena, California, police spokesman Lieutenant Bill Grisafe confirmed that the department was investigating charges against Bauer, but gave no further details. A hearing in the Bauer case is scheduled for July 23.
Jon Fetterolf, one of Bauer’s agents, disputed the allegations. He stated that Bauer met the woman in April, and that the two had “a short, fully initiated sex” of the woman.
“Its basis for placing a protection order is non-existent, false and deliberately omits important facts, information and its own relevant communication,” Fetterolf insisted. All allegations that their meetings were not 100 percent consistent are unfounded, defamatory and will be refuted in full by law. ”
Fetterolf pointed out that the woman repeatedly asked Bauer for “rough” sex, and demanded to be “strangled” and hit in the face.
Fetterolf claimed that Bauer and the woman remained friendly in texts after the meetings.
Bauer and the woman have not corresponded for over a month and have not seen each other in six weeks, Fetterolf said.
Rachel Luba, Bau’s second agent, wrote on Twitter that “as an agent and lawyer, I think it’s important to repeat that I will always defend my clients when I think the accusations are false – and I will continue to do so. I am aware of much more information than is currently publicly reported, and I am sure the truth will be revealed. ”
The 30-year-old Bauer joined the Dodgers in the low season after accepting a three-year contract worth US $ 102 million. He won the Cy-Young National Trophy in 2020 while wearing Cincinnati Reds colors. This season, right-handed is 8-5 with an earned average of 2.59.
