Owner of Fuzz, the malnourished cat euthanized last month, charged under Animal Protection Act

Written by admin on 26/07/2019 Categories: 广州桑拿网

HALIFAX – The owner of “Fuzz” the cat, who was brought to a vet and euthanized last month, has been charged under the Animal Protection Act.

Fuzz was brought to the Lady Hammond Animal Hospital on September 13, very ill and in bad physical shape.

Kim Jenkins, owner of the cat, has been charged with failing to provide the animal with adequate medical attention when the animal was wounded or ill and issued a ticket for $406.45.


“We took the cat to the Department of Agriculture and had a necropsy performed, and, based on the results of the necropsy and our findings, we decided that it was appropriate to charge the owner,” said Jo Anne Landsburg, Chief Provincial Inspector of the NS SPCA.

Kara Jenkins, daughter of Kim, made a public plea for her cat after not having seen him for a while.

Sarah Fraser admitted on 广州桑拿网 to having brought Fuzz to the vet and that the cat had been euthanized shortly after.

The SPCA launched an investigation into the matter.

“I decided the most humane thing to do would be to euthanize the cat,” Fraser wrote in a post on 广州桑拿网, explaining her decision.

The post explained that Fraser believed Fuzz was a stray, and that she brought the cat to the veterinarian out of concern for her health and safety.

Today, Fraser said she was feeling  “very vindicated” by the process. “There was a lot of doubt, I think before, and, if anything, this really proves what terrible condition the cat was really in and that the right decisions were made,” said Fraser, who added that, since Global News broke the story last month, her family has received threats of physical harm.

In September, the veterinarian who examined the cat said it was in very bad shape. “It was very malnourished, had matted fur all over the body, high grade heart murmur, open-mouthed breathing, extremely emaciated and dehydrated, gingival bleeding with many rotten teeth,” Dr. Umer Khan of the Lady Hammond Animal Hospital told Global News in September.

After further examination, Dr. Khan said the cat was in extreme pain, and eventually it was recommended that the cat be put down, a decision that Kara Jenkins did not agree with.

“We should have been responsible to make that decision, not a stranger,” Kara Jenkins said in September. “I think there needs to be some sort of justice served.”

Halifax Regional Police also launched an investigation into the matter, but they concluded their investigation and didn’t lay any charges.

If you find an animal in need of care, The NS SPCA asks that you contact them at 1 (888) 703-7722.

Take your Halloween entertaining to the next level with these tutorials

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

Hosting a Halloween party this week? There are a few easy DIY decor and menu ideas you can use to make your shindig “spooktacular.”

Sara Lynn Cauchon, aka The Domestic Geek on YouTube (where she has nearly quadruple the following of Martha Stewart), really set the bar with her epic feast.

The whole setup took her five days, but she’s confident you won’t need that long.

“You can definitely pull that off in an afternoon if you had some extra hands.”

Part 1 of her Haunted Hallowed Party tutorial, which covers all the little devilish decor details, has been viewed more than 25,000 times in less than 24 hours.

Here are her tips for how you can pull off what she did:

1. Scour your house

“There’s nothing you can’t do with a mason jar, in my humble opinion.”

Anything in your home that looks old or antique could work. If you can’t find anything, drop by a thrift shop for some vintage decanters.

2. Hit a dollar store

“I have to say the dollar store has really upped its game.”

You can probably find close to everything you’ll need there. Even if something doesn’t look exactly like you want it to right out of the bag, a little imagination and creativity goes a long way. Cauchon’s black creepy-crawly place-mats, for instance, called for some super glue and spray paint. Cauchon glued the small snakes together to form a place-mat. They originally looked like this:

3. Stock up on candles

The candles give the skeletons a ghoulish glow.

The Domestic Geek, YouTube

“Candles are so inexpensive but so creepy.”

The more candles you can add, the better. They really set the mood.

“Anything liquid looks incredible by candlelight,” she adds.

4. Menu

Poison apples are a sinister twist on candied apples.

The Domestic Geek, YouTube

The blood-red spider cider is to die for.

The Domestic Geek, YouTube

Oven-roasted brains “that even Hannibal Lecter would approve of.”

The Domestic Geek, YouTube

“Menu is really important.”

Cauchon points out that you tend to see a lot of kid-friendly menus this time of year.

Part 2 of Cauchon’s Haunted Hallowed Party tutorial below offers three “eerie but irresistible recipes that will both spook and satisfy” adults’ tastebuds.

Happy entertaining!

Justin Bieber cleans up in Europe at MTV EMAs with 5 awards

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

MILAN – Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber dominated the MTV EMAs with five European music awards Sunday night, including for best male performer, best collaboration and best look.

“It’s been a long couple of years. I just feel it’s awesome to be recognized for my music,” Bieber, who was up for six awards, told the crowd.


Clad in a boyish red ensemble, Bieber performed his single “What Do You Mean?” for screaming fans — many of whom surely helped him win the best fans category — inside the Mediolanum Center in Italy’s fashion capital of Milan.

“Make some noise!” he exhorted the crowd as he sang, as if they needed to be told.

As he picked up his award for best collaboration, Bieber said “it’s been a pretty good night.” By the time he took the fifth award, for best look, he just said “Wow.”

“I don’t know what to say, I got these looks from my mamma,” Bieber added.

He also won the worldwide act: North America category.

Host Ed Sheeran had a busy night, keeping the show going with co-host Ruby Rose, performing with Rudimental on their hit “Lay It On Me,” and taking home two awards himself, for best live act and best world stage.

Taylor Swift, who led all artists with nine nominations, took just one prize, best song, for “Bad Blood,” featuring Kendrick Lamar. Rihanna won best female performer while Nicki Minaj took best hip hop. One Direction won for best pop group, preventing Bieber from sweeping all the awards for which he was nominated. None of those acts were on hand to accept, and only Minaj sent along a video “thank you.”

Best video went to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who opened the show with their award-winning song “Downtown,” with Eric Nally flying against a full moon backdrop. They thanked fans for supporting their music without the backing of a big label.

Pharrell Williams closed out the ceremony, singing a rousing rendition of his anthem “Freedom” with dancers in brightly colored swing skirts. As the broadcast wrapped up, cameras cut to the Piazza Duomo in Milan’s centre, where fans unfurled a huge “Freedom” banner to raise awareness about Europe’s refugee crisis.

New Wave rockers Duran Duran were honoured with the first-ever MTV video visionary award honouring music video pioneers.

“Music lovers around the world, when we started, there was us and MTV, and we blazed a trail and we were there for each other,” Simon Le Bon told the crowd.

Andrea Bocelli made his MTV EMA debut, lulling the Italian crowd into a sing-along of his hit “Con te partiro” before singing a duet with best newcomer nominee Tori Kelly.

“It’s been such an honour just to be around him and just see how he works and it’s really cool to see his wife and kids,” Kelly said on the red carpet, calling it “a huge honour” to share the stage with Bocelli.

The awards ceremony travels to a different European city each year and winners are selected by fans across the continent.

Florida Panthers extend win-streak with 2-1 win over Oilers Sunday night

Written by admin on 25/08/2019 Categories: 广州桑拿网

EDMONTON – When you’ve won a dozen straight games, not all of them will be pretty.

Jonathan Huberdeau’s first-period goal stood up as the winner as the Florida Panthers extended their franchise-record win streak to 12 games with a 2-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday.

Jaromir Jagr also scored for the Panthers, who haven’t lost since Dec. 12 — a 3-1 defeat against the Boston Bruins.



  • Connor McDavid won’t return to Oilers line-up before NHL All-Star game

    Minor hockey week: media vs Oilers alumni

  • Oilers lose 3-2 after Lightning strike three times in third period

    “It was a grinder-type game and we did what we had to do to win,” said Panthers centre Nick Bjustad. “We didn’t necessarily play well, but you’re going to have those games where you don’t feel the greatest but you have to sneak them out.”

    The Panthers (26-12-4) have become the first team in NHL history to win 12 games in a row after missing the playoffs the previous year.

    Mark Letestu replied for the Oilers (17-23-3), who have dropped back-to-back outings.

    Florida scored on its first shot of the game just over three minutes in when Oilers defenceman Darnell Nurse coughed up the puck, sending Jagr in on a breakaway. The 44-year-old lost the handle on the puck while attempting a deke, but it still managed to go through the legs of Edmonton goalie Cam Talbot for his 15th goal of the season.

    “The home run mistakes, those have to be eliminated from our game,” said Oilers coach Todd McLellan. “The mistake that Darnell made, they have to be eliminated. That’s an individual mistake that has to be out of the game.”

    The Oilers looked to have responded three minutes later when Taylor Hall picked the corner to beat Panthers starter Al Montoya, but a replay determined Edmonton was offside on the play and the goal was overturned.

    Letestu said it was going to be hard enough to score on red-hot Florida, and it didn’t help when a goal was taken away.

    “We knew with this winning streak that they hadn’t been giving up much and had been defending well and getting good goaltending,” he said. “When you win 12 in a row, a lot of things are going well. To have one of our goals taken back, it was tough.”

    Shortly afterwards, Florida made it 2-0 as Huberdeau took a feed from behind the net and chipped it over Talbot’s shoulder.

    Edmonton got a goal back with 7:28 remaining in the first as some hard work by its third line paid off with a goal by Letestu.

    The Oilers had the bulk of the chances for the scoreless second and third periods, but couldn’t find the equalizer despite outshooting the Panthers 25-14 in the game.

    “They’re not pretty every single night,” Montoya said. “You’ve got to find different ways to win. Tonight, we found another way to win.”

    The Panthers play the fourth of a six-game trip in Vancouver on Monday. The Oilers head on the road to face the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday.

    Notes: Florida’s winning streak is the longest of any team in the NHL this season and longest since the Boston Bruins won 12 in a row from March 2 to 22, 2014… Out with injuries for the Oilers were Connor McDavid (collarbone), Nail Yakupov (ankle), Oscar Klefbom (finger) and Andrew Ference (undisclosed). Edmonton announced on Saturday that McDavid, the first-overall draft pick in 2015, will not return before the All-Star break… Missing from the Panthers lineup were Steven Kampfer (lower body) and David Bolland (lower body)… Edmonton was coming off a bizarre 3-2 loss to Tampa Bay on Friday that saw all three Lightning goals go in off of their own players… Oiler Ryan Nugent-Hopkins played his 300th career game.

Syrian Refugees celebrate Armenian Christmas in Vancouver

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

Canada’s Defence Minister, Harjit Sajjan, attended a special Christmas ceremony at St. Gregory Armenian Apostolic Church today to thank the community for its role in sponsoring Syrian refugees.

The Richmond-base parish is hosting nearly 31 families, many with ties to church members. The effort makes the orthodox Christian Church one of BC’s largest private sponsors.


“It’s easy to expedite files, but it’s very hard to put the resources and community together to sponsor families like this. So this is my way of saying thank you,” Sajjan told reporters outside the church.

READ MORE: Syrian refugees were pepper sprayed in Vancouver two nights before

According to organizers, finding housing for the refugees has been the biggest challenge.

“We spent three days on Craigslist, trying to find rental apartments for $1,400 or $1,500, but it’s very difficult. People, when they know it’s a family, a mother, a father, maybe three kids and a mother in law, they just don’t want to rent, and unfortunately as private sponsors, we don’t get any help from the provincial government,” says Vic Andonian of the Armenian National Committee of Canada.

The church is not only looking for housing, but also donations of furniture and household goods. Donations can be made via syriahelp广州桑拿网 or stgregorychurch广州桑拿网

Viken Majazian and Alin Azakelian and their two children are among the refugees being sponsored by St. Gregory Church. Majazian was a dental surgeon in Syria; Azakelian an engineer. But living in Aleppo, the family used to hear rockets above their apartment every night, and the violence eventually forced them to flee.

“I felt really hopeless,” Azakelian says. “My girl was saying she wanted to go to the park and sit on the swing. The kids just wanted to walk down the street. But I said you can’t go outside, so many dangers, maybe we will get hurt. There were so many difficult moments in our life, we felt hopeless.”

Now living in B.C., the family are about to move into their own rental apartment.

“I just want to thank everyone here, everyone, I am so happy,” Azakelian says.

Evander Kane’s return met with tracksuits and boos from Jets fans

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

WINNIPEG —; It was anything but a friendly welcome back for Evander Kane.

Fans booed, dressed up in tracksuits and cheered when Kane slipped and fell during pre-game warmups.

The former Winnipeg Jet made his first return to MTS Centre on Sunday since being traded to the Buffalo Sabres.

Kane had several controversial moments off-the-ice during his time in Winnipeg, which included posting pictures on social media of him holding stacks of money and rumoured in-fighting with teammates.

An incident last February, proved to be the final straw. Kane violated team dress code and wore a tracksuit to a game in Vancouver. Defenceman Dustin Byfuglien reportedly threw the tracksuit into a cold tub. Kane was traded to the Buffalo Sabres soon after.

Fans had less than glowing reviews of Kane’s time with the team.

“He’s a big baby. He’s got no charisma or chemistry. His ego gets in the way,” said Aidan Ritchie, a Jets fan.

“For all the fans that paid for your contract, we wish you all the best,” said Ryan Ambrozik, who work a full blue tracksuit and face paint.

Jim Toth, a Winnipeg sports analyst said Kane never endeared himself to fans, even when the relationship had broken down with the hockey club.

“There’s a lot of fans that aren’t happy with him because Winnipeg’s a working class town. And they get upset when people don’t want to be here,” Toth said.

He also predicted Kane will soon leave Buffalo for bigger markets.

“I think when he becomes a free agent, he wants to go to a big market – the L.A.s, the New Yorks, or maybe back home in Vancouver.”

Spain: Landmark fraud trial starts for Princess Cristina

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

PALMA DE MALLORCA, Spain – Spain’s Princess Cristina spent 12 hours in court Monday at the start of her landmark criminal case, confronting accusations of bankrolling a lavish lifestyle with funds her husband received from an alleged scheme to embezzle millions from public contracts for conferences and sporting events.


Cristina and her husband, Inaki Urdangarin, said nothing during the opening of their trial as their lawyers and attorneys for 16 additional defendants argued why their clients should have charges dropped and made requests about evidence and witnesses for a trial expected to last six months.

One lawyer asked to call Spain’s current and former kings as witnesses and another accused him of trying to turn the trial into a reality show. The judge ended the proceedings by saying the trial would resume in February – when a final decision will be made as to whether Cristina will remain among the defendants or not.

The 50-year-old Cristina, the sister of King Felipe VI, faces two counts of tax fraud, carrying a maximum prison sentence of eight years, for allegedly failing to declare taxes on personal expenses paid by a real estate company she owned with Urdangarin, an Olympic handball medallist turned businessman.

Her lawyer, Jesus Maria Silva, was joined by a prosecutor and a state attorney representing Spanish tax authorities in saying the charges against Cristina should be thrown out because government officials agreed she committed no crimes and should face at most an administrative fine for tax evasion.

The three-member panel of judges hearing the case will decide in coming weeks whether to side with her supporters or with an investigative judge who spent four years probing the case and ruled it could go forward because of evidence presented by a private anti-corruption group.

The judges will have to weigh whether the couple criminally abused the Aizoon real estate consulting firm described in court papers as a “front company” to fund luxury vacations, throw parties at their modernist Barcelona mansion and pay for salsa dancing classes.

Under Spanish law, groups like the Manos Limpias (Clean Hands) organization involved in the princess’ trial can pursue criminal charges against people when authorities decide against doing so.

The trial marks the first time that a member of Spain’s royal family has faced criminal charges since the monarchy was restored in 1975.

Urdangarin and others are accused of embezzling up to 6.2 million euros ($6.8 million) from contracts which were allegedly inflated or never performed. The princess’ husband, formerly the Duke of Palma, is accused of using his title to land the deals for the Noos Institute he ran with business partner Diego Torres.

Torres’ lawyer, Manuel Gonzalez, renewed a request to call former Spanish King Juan Carlos and his son, King Felipe, as witnesses – presumably to elicit testimony suggesting the business dealings of Noos were condoned or approved by the royal family while Juan Carlos was king until 2014.

The requests for them and other witnesses prompted Pedro Horrach, the prosecutor who wants Cristina fined but cleared of criminal wrongdoing, to accuse Gonzalez of “trying to turn the trial into a reality show.”

Cristina and her husband were stoic as sat in a group with the other defendants and they watched the lengthy exchanges between lawyers and judges.

The couple entered court without speaking to reporters under tight security after authorities detained a protester found nearby with an anti-monarchy flag. They left hours after sunset, with the princess appearing to give a slight smile as she departed.

A small group was allowed to protest nearby after the proceedings began – in sharp contrast to 2014 demonstrations by thousands of anti-monarchy protesters while Cristina answered questions posed by an investigative judge.

There are so many defendants and lawyers – plus reporters – involved in the case that judicial officials moved the trial from a courthouse to a sprawling complex on the outskirts of Palma de Mallorca normally used for public servant training courses.

The case is being heard in the regional capital of Spain’s Balearic Islands because many of Urdangarin’s business deals under investigation were for the islands.

Cristina denied knowledge of her husband’s activities during the 2014 closed-door court appearance, but judges decided she could be tried for tax fraud in 2007 and 2008.

The details about the couple’s lifestyle that emerged from the pre-trial investigation from 2011-2014 outraged Spaniards as the country teetered on the edge of an economic crisis and unemployment hit 27 per cent.

The case deeply damaged the reputation of Juan Carlos – already smarting from a backlash after he broke his hip during a 2012 elephant-hunting trip seen as an example of royal excess. He abdicated in 2014, saying Spain needed fresh royal blood.

On taking the throne, Felipe pledged to restore public trust in Spain’s monarchy. He later stripped Cristina and her older sister Princess Elena of their roles as official members of the royal family though they have not given up their slots of succession in line for the throne.

Testimony is scheduled to begin Feb. 9 and the trial is expected to last until June. It could take the judges weeks or months following the end of the trial to decide on convictions and sentencing.

Spartans’ size comes up big in thrilling BRIT Final

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

SASKATOON  – In a classic battle of size versus speed, size won – but only after a conclusion that will go down as one of the best the BRIT Classic has ever seen, as the Archbishop O’Leary (Edmonton) Spartans defeated the Garden City (Winnipeg) Fighting Gophers 63-59 in an overtime thriller.

“It feels good you know. It’s a big tournament in Western Canada and it feels good to have our name and picture on the wall forever,” said guard/forward Tristen Kamal, who had a team-high 10 points in the fourth quarter.

  • Healthy Annala stepping into spotlight in 1st full season with Huskies

    The Spartans led from the opening tip, but a scrappy Gophers squad, which trailed by as many as 16 points, forced an extra period when forward Trezon Morcilla mailed a clutch three-pointer in the dying seconds of regulation.

    “I said ‘Hey, we’ve led every single second of this game, all they’ve done is tied it up,’” Spartans head coach Ray Filice said he told his players before overtime began. “Let’s just take the lead again, let’s execute on offence and play some defence, and that’s exactly what they did.”

    With the tide turning against them, the Spartans dug deep, and their big men came up huge when it mattered most. With less than a minute left in overtime, six-foot eight forward Adong Makuoi made a key block on eventual tournament MVP Marcel Arruda-Welch, preserving a one-point lead.

    Makuoi’s teammates then went to work, pounding the ball inside on offence and drawing fouls on consecutive possessions which led to a trio of foul shots that salted away the 63-59 victory.

    “We felt that we were a bit deeper, hopefully try to get them into foul trouble. Also make them work on the defensive end, hopefully draw some fouls, get some guys on the bench. That was our gameplan,” Filice said.

    As for the Fighting Gophers, who electrified fans throughout the tournament with their up-tempo game and sharpshooting prowess, they’re still chasing their first BRIT title after their second runner-up finish in as many appearances.

    “(In 2013) I think we lost by three late in the game to Sir Winston Churchill and this time we took it to overtime,” said head coach Phil Penner. “Maybe next time we get back we can get over the hurdle.”

    The Spartans, meanwhile, hope the win will propel them to greater heights back home, as they pursue a provincial championship.

    “We can do a lot of things if we work hard and hold each other accountable in what we do. We’re just a family and we work together,” said forward Mina Ogot.

    No matter how the rest of their season plays out, they’ll always have that show-stopping Saturday in Saskatoon.

Northern Ontario’s Nipigon River Bridge partially reopens to traffic

Written by admin on 27/07/2019 Categories: 广州桑拿网

NIPIGON, Ont. —; A multimillion-dollar bridge offering the sole east-west route across part of northern Ontario has been partially reopened after sustaining serious damage over the weekend, provincial officials said Monday.


“[We] turned the corner, everything was intact. Got a little closer, and the whole bridge just lifted. Like there was a gust of wind that came underneath it and poof! It was crazy,” said Ashley Littlefield, who witnessed the incident firsthand with her husband and daughter.

“I knew there was something wrong. I panicked. My child, who’s six, was in the backseat and she was freaking out.”

A statement from Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca said one lane is available to cars and regular-weight transport trucks, but said engineers were still working to determine whether the Nipigon River Bridge can sustain the weight of oversized trucks.

Del Duca said staff worked through the night in order to reopen a route that the province’s premier described as critically important.

“As soon as I heard about the closure of the bridge I was concerned because it is the lifeline in terms of product and transportation in northwestern Ontario,” Kathleen Wynne said. “It connects the east to the west, and there is only that one route.”

The OPP closed the bridge indefinitely on Sunday afternoon when part of the steel decking on the western side separated about 60 centimetres from the rest of the structure. There were no injuries reported, and pedestrians were still able to make use of the bridge.

Word of the partial reopening came as a relief to local businesses, said Dan Bevilacqua, manager of the North of Superior Travel Association.

He said companies were bracing to function without bridge access for anywhere from two days to a full month, adding that the flow of supplies wasn’t even the main concern.

“I think what people were worried about is just essentially the country being split in two,” he said.

“Here in Nipigon, we are at the middle of the country. Everything has to come through this area. … It was more concern for travellers.”

The news was equally welcome to 20-year-old Mariah Veneziano, who had travelled to Thunder Bay, Ont., for the weekend to help her sister catch a flight.

She avoided a night shivering in her car by staying with friends, but set out for her home in Schreiber, Ont., home as soon as she heard traffic was moving again.

Veneziano said she initially felt nervous about crossing the structure, but found the scene less harrowing and more efficient than she expected.

“It was probably only a 10-minute wait because they were letting both sides of traffic go by,” she said. “We were going about 25 kilometres an hour across.”

No one has yet offered an estimate as to when the bridge, which is part of the Trans-Canada Highway and spans the Nipigon River, will be fully functional.

Nor is there any word as to what caused the separation, an issue Wynne said the government is determined to “get to the bottom of.”

The Ontario government began building what it touts as the province’s first cable-stayed bridge in 2013 and opened westbound lanes to two-way traffic in November. The project, which the government pegs at $106 million, is due to be completed in 2017.

Ontario Northern Development and Mines Minister Michael Gravelle was planning to visit the site on Monday to assess the extent of the damage, and Del Duca is planning to inspect the site on Wednesday.

“Apparently the bolts that hold the girders in place broke in some fashion and that lifted the bridge up,” Gravelle said.

“There’s been tremendous work done overnight and as one can see now the bridge is now open 17 hours after the incident happened to one lane traffic in both directions, all forms of traffic, which is a good thing.”

The nearby municipality of Greenstone declared a state of emergency on Sunday out of what deputy Mayor Eric Pietsch describes as an abundance of caution. He said the community itself was not threatened, but wanted to be in a better position to assist stranded travellers if necessary.

Pietsch said the state of emergency will likely remain in effect until Tuesday morning.

Ontario’s New Democrats said the failure of the bridge “shows the Liberal government’s mismanagement of northern Ontario’s roads and highways.”

“Many companies in northern Ontario depend on the bridge to transport product across the country,” said Wayne Gates, the party’s transportation critic. “This will hurt industry, and many small communities will be economically impacted with less motorists passing through.”

Progressive Conservative transportation critic Michael Harris called for an explanation, noting the bridge failed only 42 days after opening the new westbound lanes.

“This is a route that sees between 5,000 and 10,000 vehicles per day – many that can’t simply divert through the United States to get from east to west,” said Harris. “Where was the backup plan to prevent the potential of a failure that effectively splits Canada in two?”

This 1989 documentary on Asian investment in Vancouver shows how little the debate has changed

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

“What do you think of Asian investment in Vancouver?” asks a reporter to a young couple.

“We talk about this every day,” says the woman with a laugh.

“I am totally opposed, totally. I don’t think it’s fair at all. People like us, a young married couple and we’ve lived here all our lives, and we can’t afford to buy a house. We save and we save, and it doesn’t matter, because the prices keep going up because the foreign people keep coming in and keep buying.”


It’s an exchange that could have happened this week, as people in Metro Vancouver continue to deal with soaring real estate prices and the unknown effect foreign investment has on the housing market.

But it’s not a new debate – that exchanged happened in 1989.

It’s one of many illuminating conversations in a documentary aired by this station – then known as BCTV – more than 26 years ago.

In the previous year Vancouver experienced a real estate boom. Prices for homes on the west side of the city rose by 40 per cent, and the average age of residents was quickly rising.

At the same time, a growing contingent of immigrants from Hong Kong were arriving in Vancouver (up to 10,000 a year) and purchasing property. In 1986, the Bank of British Columbia was acquired by HSBC. In 1988, Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-shing purchased the Expo 86 site along False Creek.

“Something’s going to have to be done about all the things they’re buying up. Some kind of law being passed, because they’re buying everything,” said one person to BCTV reporter Colleen Leung, who presented the series.

Leung portrays Vancouver as an anxious city, emotional over the rapid pace of development.

“Vancouverites were shocked to learn that some condos sold out in Hong Kong before they were built, and before Canadians had a chance to buy them,” she says at one point.

“[Immigrants] look at properties, they decide what they want very quickly, they make all cash offers, if they have to do any financing, it seems some of them want to do them in their own banks in Hong Kong…dozens of houses on the west side are being bulldozed.

“Chinese Canadians thought discrimination was gone forever, but with the arrival of the new asia money, they realize the old battles will have to fought all over again.”

This was portrayed as what would happen to Vancouver “if developers get their way.”

And while today the parts of the debate tinged with racism have mostly moved to the internet, in 1989 people seemed to be more willing to speak with vitriol to the camera – and our station dispassionately gave them equal air time.

“Thirty per cent have finally admitted they’re racist. When when another 30 per cent do, we’ll get some action on this immigration thing,” said one elderly woman at the Scottish Cultural Centre.

“As soon as we stand up and speak and try to express ourselves on what we’re trying to do, it’s slammed as racism. Well by god if that’s racism, then I’m racist!” said another person at the meeting.

But it wasn’t just the elderly – teenagers at Magee Secondary School also were less than thrilled at the changes to their city.

“And beside the classrooms changing, our whole neighbourhods are changing too. They come in and buy old houses, knock them down, and some of them they build are nice, but some of them our monstrosities, they don’t fit in with our neighbourhood,” said one student.

“I think they should keep their customs and whatnot, but if they’re going to come to Canada, they need to learn like Canadians,” said another.

Leung explains that some politicians have raised the idea of putting in restrictions on building codes, or even emulating Australia’s laws on housing investments.

However, politicians were loathe to make any changes, because 26 years ago, there simply wasn’t enough data available on the topic.

“The problem we have right now is we don’t have the information to enable us to come to some conclusions. For us to come to a conclusion before having information is somewhat backwards,” said John Jansen, Minister for International Business and Immigration.

WATCH: Winnipeg Jets call 4-2 loss to Buffalo Sabres disappointing

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

WINNIPEG – Rookie Sam Reinhart picked up his first career NHL hat trick against the Winnipeg Jets (19-20-3) to help his Buffalo Sabres (16-22-4) to a 4-2 win at MTS Centre on Sunday. The victory not only snaps Buffalo’s six-game slide but also hands Winnipeg it’s second straight loss.

Reinhart opened the scoring early in the first period by beating Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck glove side with a wrist shot for his tenth goal of the season. He later used a power play to notch his second of the frame and put Buffalo back in front after Blake Wheeler evened things up with his team leading 41st point. Wheeler’s goal marks his first in exactly a month. He had gone 12 straight games without finding the back of the net.

Mathieu Perreault put away a rebound in the second period on a man-advantage to make it a 2-2 game. Bryan Little grabbed his second assist of the game on the play.

Buffalo retook the lead in the third by scoring two unanswered goals. Hellebuyck gave up a huge rebound off a Brian Gionta shot allowing Marcus Foligno to put away the game-winner. Reinhart added his third of the match in the final minute by hitting an empty net.

The game was Evander Kane and Zach Bogosian’s first in Winnipeg since being traded to Buffalo last February. Kane, who was the subject of many taunts, finished the game with an assist. Bogosian was left pointless but logged two shots, four hits and 23:23 of ice time.

Jets forward Mark Scheifele did not suit up against the Sabres. He was a game-time decision with a lower-body injury. Winnipeg head coach Paul Maurice expects Scheifele to play the next game. Perreault’s status meanwhile is up in the air after a second period collision with Sabres defenceman Jake McCabe. Perreault went to the dressing room following the hit. He returned for the third period but was in a considerable amount of pain every shift he took.

Winnipeg continues its three-game home stand Tuesday against the San Jose Sharks.

Edmonton’s Deep Freeze Byzantine Winter Festival draws big crowds

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

EDMONTON- Despite a bitterly cold start to the weekend, thousands of people ditched the comforts of the couch to check out the Deep Freeze Byzantine Festival.

“Saturday was very cold and we had tons of people it was amazing,” said Allison Argy-Burgess, the festival producer. It’s estimated between 10 and 15 thousand people headed out into the bitter cold to enjoy the winter fun.

The festival takes place along 118 Avenue between 90-94 Streets. It features an ice slide, snow and ice carvings as well as a hot dog and marshmallow roast. There’s also ice skating and the Festival’s signature ‘deep freezer races’ in which teams push and slide an empty old freezer along the street.

“It’s been a fantastic year better than we ever expected,” said Argy-Burgess, adding the kitchen sold out of poutine on Francophone-themed Sunday. While the final numbers are still being added up, organizers expect this year’s attendance to be a record breaker.

“Every year we listen to the community, we listen to Edmontonians. What they want to see, what could be better and it just grows naturally,” says Christy Morin, the festival’s artistic director. “People just want to be part of the festival.”

This year the festival expanded it’s program to include a day of delicious Ukrainian food and dancing on Saturday and a Francophone-themed day on Sunday.

All the fun is free but a $10 donation is appreciated. Donations have kept the festival growing and going for nine years now.

“I’m excited because I think people are getting how much fun you can have at a winter festival. It’s just wonderful,” said Argy-Burgess.
