Canada is not Canada We are not the country we think we

first_imgAPTN National NewsCanada is not the country many think it is, says ailing Tragically Hit singer Gord Downie who is releasing a solo album based on the story of Chanie Wenjack, a First Nation boy from Marten Falls First Nation who was found dead on railroad tracks near Kenora, Ont., after fleeing the Cecilia Jeffrey Indian Residential School in October 1966.Downie visited Wenjack’s home in Marten Falls on Thursday with Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak Grand Chief Sheila North-Wilson and Ry Moran, the director of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, CBC News reported.The Hip frontman, who is suffering from terminal brain cancer, released a statement following the visit saying most Canadians had a misconception of the country. He said they were never told about the dark reality the country is built on the broken bodies of First Nation children and communities.“We are not the country we thought we were. History will be re-written. We are all accountable, but this begins in the late 1800s and goes to 1996. ‘White’ Canada knew – on somebody’s purpose – nothing about this. We weren’t taught it in school; it was hardly ever mentioned,” said Downie, in the statement. “All of those Governments, and all of those Churches, for all of those years, misused themselves. They hurt many children. They broke up many families. They erased entire communities. It will take seven generations to fix this. Seven. Seven is not arbitrary. This is far from over. Things up north have never been harder. Canada is not Canada. We are not the country we think we are.”“All of those Governments, and all of those Churches, for all of those years, misused themselves. They hurt many children. They broke up many families. They erased entire communities. It will take seven generations to fix this. Seven. Seven is not arbitrary. This is far from over. Things up north have never been harder. Canada is not Canada. We are not the country we think we are.”Downie said Wenjack’s story touched him deeply and his upcoming solo release, The Secret Path, is based entirely on the lost boy’s story.“I never knew Chanie, but I will always love him. Chanie haunts me. His story is Canada’s story,” said Downie.The singer said his project also aims to spread the former chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Murray Sinclair who said that “this is not an Aboriginal problem. It’s a Canadian problem.”Downie’s album will be accompanied by a graphic novel written by novelist Joseph Boyden and a film.Proceeds from the project will go to the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation which is now a repository for the files, photos and records of the Indian residential school era which lasted for over a century.At least 3,000 children died in the schools, but the number is believed to be much higher as a result of poor record keeping along with lost and destroyed files.news@aptn.ca@APTNNewslast_img read more

US new home sales soar to highest level in a decade

first_imgWASHINGTON – Sales of new U.S. homes jumped last month to the highest level since October 2007, a sign that Americans — unable to find existing homes — are turning to new construction. Damage from last month’s hurricanes may have also inflated the data.New home sales leapt 18.9 per cent in September to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 667,000, the most in a decade, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. Sales rose in all regions including the South, where they increased nearly 26 per cent.The government said it couldn’t estimate what impact, if any, last month’s hurricanes had on the data. But the measure of new home sales is based on contract signings, so the number was likely lifted by those looking to replace homes destroyed or damaged by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.“This is yet another sign that, as we first saw with the initial jobless claims data, the recovery from Harvey was very fast and the disruption from Irma in Florida was far less than initially feared,” said Stephen Stanley, chief economist at Amherst Pierpont Securities.Still, sales of new homes also jumped outside hurricane-affected areas, including in the Northeast, where they rose 33 per cent, and the Midwest, where they rose nearly 11 per cent. Sales in West ticked up 3 per cent.A supply crunch of existing homes has frustrated many would-be buyers and hobbled the housing market this year. September’s figures suggest that Americans are increasingly looking to new homes instead, which could encourage more construction.Yet developers have struggled to keep up with demand. Many construction firms say they have difficulty finding the workers they need to start new projects.Construction of single-family homes slipped nearly 5 per cent last month. Still, thanks to large increases over the summer, single-family homebuilding remains 5.9 per cent higher than a year ago. Builders also obtained more permits for new building last month. That suggests home building could accelerate in the coming months.Developers are feeling optimistic. A survey by the National Association of Home Builders and Wells Fargo found that their outlook is the brightest it has been since May.Homebuilders are increasingly focused on higher-priced housing, potentially freezing out potential buyers of more modest incomes. The average price of a new home rose to $385,200 in September, the highest on records dating back to 1963.Last month, 19,000 homes were sold for $500,000 or higher, more than the 13,000 that were sold for $200,000 or less.___This story has been corrected to show that the Commerce Department’s new home sales report was released Wednesday, not Tuesday.last_img read more

Realtor says mortgage changes will have limited impact on Calgary

A local realtor says new mortgage changes will have a limited impact on the Calgary housing market.Effective Monday, buyers purchasing a home over $500,000 were required to give a 10 per cent down payment.Sean Bruce-Hayes with RE/MAX Rockyview says while there was some worry earlier, current conditions mean this won’t make too much of a splash here.“Sales are slow in that higher priced market anyways, but it will definitely move buyers to those more affordable options, or keep them renting longer,” he said.Bruce-Hayes says Toronto and Vancouver will be feeling these changes more deeply.He says for those looking in a higher price range, who are fortunate enough to have job security and have been good at saving, there’s great value right now. by Kaitlin Lee Posted Feb 16, 2016 8:00 am MDT STOCK PHOTO/FREEIMAGES.COM AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Realtor says mortgage changes will have “limited impact” on Calgary read more

EXCLUSIVE Poll reveals pain points in dental health benefits strategies

first_imgA poll conducted by Unum among delegates at Employee Benefits Live 2018, which took place on 2 and 3 October 2018, has revealed that although 94% of respondents agreed oral health is an important component of a health and wellbeing strategy, 44% of employers do not offer dental cover.Andrew Bower, managing director of Unum Dental, said: “This gap in cover shows there’s a discrepancy in perception and reality, and more should be done to understand what obstacles prevent employers from offering this important cover.”The pulse survey also revealed that 23% of organisations see a dental cover take-up rate of between 1% and 5%, while 21% have a level of take up between 6% and 15%. The majority (88%) of respondents stated they would be interested in practical advice and tips from providers to help improve interest among employees to get the best return on investment.Bower said: “Take-up rates continue to be an area where employers require help. [Employers need] a tailored enrolment and communications programme to ensure they’re communicating clearly, effectively and efficiently to get the best results.”When asked about possible new or non-standard features of dental care they thought would appeal most to their employees, more than two-thirds (67%) selected access to teeth-whitening services, 21% opted for adult orthodontics, and 12% cited cover for employees’ parents.Bower said: “Surveying attendees of Employee Benefits Live 2018 enabled us to get feedback on Unum’s recent product innovations. We were also able to prove our hypothesis about a potential new feature we’re currently piloting to enhance our offering and add even more value to our products.”He added: “We’re thrilled to have a vehicle like Employee Benefits Live, which offers a unique opportunity to meet with senior decision makers and engage with existing and potential new clients. The next step, of course, is to incorporate that feedback into our solutions to ensure we’re adding the most value to employers and their employees as we innovate and enhance our offering.”last_img read more

museums of China dinner by a picturesque lake side followed by talks with top officials would mark the two-day unprecedented informal summit between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese president Xi Jinping beginning in Wuhan on Friday Billed as ‘heart-to-heart’ summit aimed at evolving consensus between the two leaders to look for solutions to some of the most contentious issues including the border dispute bedevilling the two countries Modi and Xi will begin their marathon one-on-one talks after lunch on Friday They will initially visit the Hubei Provincial Museum which has a large number of state-level historic and cultural relics It will be followed by talks between the two leaders accompanied by six top officials from each side The two will have one-on-one dinner at the famous East Lake a favourite holiday destination of China’s revolutionary leader Mao Zedong On Saturday they will resume their one-on-one interaction at 10 am (local time) with walks by the lake side boat ride and wind up their talks over lunch official sources told PTI The two leaders began their informal meetings way back in 2014 when Xi was hosted by Modi at the Sabarmati Ashram of Mahatma Gandhi in Gujarat They have met and interacted with each other in about a dozen international meetings since then But this will be their "heart-to-heart" informal summit There will be no agreement signed or a joint statement issued It is a summit according to the officials to forge consensus to resolve the issues with follow up actions by officials than announcing any agreements This is something the leaders of the two countries have never tried so far they said The two leaders would spend most of time interacting with each other only accompanied by translators with one-on-one conversations focussing on global regional and bilateral issues The summit is being seen as an effort by India and China to rebuild trust and improve ties that were hit by the 73-day-long Dokalam standoff in 2017 The famous East Lake where the two leaders would spend most of the time was a favourite holiday spot for Mao The picturesque garden adjacent to the mighty Yangtze river is also where Mao used to enjoy his favourite pastime swimming The place has iconic holiday villa of Mao which is now a memorial where Xi is expected to take Modi round At the Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad and its surroundings Modi was Xi’s guide to introduce the essence of Gandhian thought including his iconic Charkha where the Chinese leader who has emerged as the powerful leader of the country with an unlimited tenure tried his hand to operate Gandhiji’s most cherished symbol It is now Xi’s turn at Wuhan The details of the informal summit was not disclosed but officials said it included walks by the two leaders in the East Lake where they will have a boat ride and take walks just accompanied by their translators In a pre-departure statement Modi said he and Xi will review the developments in India-China relations from a strategic and long-term perspective "President Xi and I will exchange views on a range of issues of bilateral and global importance We will discuss our respective visions and priorities for national development particularly in the context of current and future international situation" Modi said Modi will have relaxed meetings with Xion Fridayand the day after which officials say could become a game-changer if they manage to reach consensus on finding the solution to the problems including the way forward to resolve the boundary dispute and other vexed issues that bedevilled the ties Ahead of the summit China said the arrangements being made for Modi’s stay in Wuhan would go beyond the expectations of the Indian side and the informal summit could be a new starting point "This kind of one-on-one is not often seen in other countries" Chinese vice foreign minister Kong Xuanyou told the media this week "The two leaders will spend two days in Wuhan In these two days they will engage with each other on various forums What I can tell you is that they will spend a lot of time together one-on-one" he said The two leaders will have strategic communication on the major changes in the international landscape unseen in more than 100 years Kong said in an apparent reference to major changes taking place following US president Donald Trump’s aggressive ‘America First’ policy threatening to undermine the process of globalisation under which India and China are the biggest beneficiaries They will have in-depth exchange of views on the issues of overarching long-term and strategic importance in the bilateral relations Kong said Conceived on the lines of the 1988 ice-breaking visit to China undertaken by the then prime minister Rajiv Gandhi and his far-reaching talks
