Canada’s Trudeau pushes for police to use body cams

first_imgTopics : Trudeau himself took a knee on Friday at a demonstration outside his office in Ottawa.He pushed back at critics who said protesting did not adhere to public health guidelines about social distancing during the pandemic, saying he sought to “balance very important competing interests.””As best I could, I followed social distancing measures and wore a mask,” he said. “But for me, it was important that I be there.” Having police wear body cameras would be “a significant step towards transparency and we’re going to work on that this week,” Trudeau said.”It is something that is, in my opinion, what we need to move forward with.”Body cams are used to document police interactions with the public and gather evidence at crime scenes. Proponents of their use say they provide increased transparency in policing.Thousands of Canadians in recent days have marched in solidarity with US protesters against racism and police brutality, following the death in police custody of a black man in Minneapolis.center_img Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Monday he supports the use of police body cameras in Canada to ensure “transparency” from officers and hopefully curb brutality and racial bias.He said he has discussed the matter with Royal Canadian Mounted Police commissioner Brenda Lucki, and planned to raise it with provincial leaders who have jurisdiction over regional police forces.”With the many disturbing reports of violence against black Canadians and indigenous people, we know that we need to do much more, and we need to do it now,” Trudeau told a news conference.last_img read more

first_imgTwitter Inc has taken down an image tweeted by the US President Donald Trump from its platform, after receiving a copyright complaint from the New York Times.The original tweet by Trump issued on June 30, showed a meme that read “In reality they’re not after me they’re after you I’m just in the way” with Trump’s picture in the background.The background picture was taken by a New York Times photographer, to accompany a feature article on then presidential candidate Trump in September 2015.

Reality TV stars Michael and Carlene give a little back

first_imgMichael and Carlene Duffy are focused on their careers and charity. Picture: Richard Gosling.LAST Saturday night I lined up to call four auctions at the Ronald McDonald Ball. On arrival I saw my old The Block host Shelley Craft was the MC and Michael and Carlene, the couple I represented on show (and my in-laws), were also on the guest list.It’s been a busy couple of years since we all did battle on The Block Glasshouse and while we have caught up at a few events since, it was good to catch up again and shoot the breeze with them.The life of a reality television star and host usually has two sides. There is the camera side and the reality side. Not to say that the shows don’t mirror real life, surprisingly they do, but when the cameras aren’t rolling most of these celebrities have day jobs to keep their fingers on the pulse.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home2 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor2 hours agoMichael, Carlene and Shelley all have shows on Channel Nine. Shelley is again hosting this year’s series on the Logie Award winning show The Block, while Michael and Carlene have their new show Ready Set Reno about to start on September 10.It surprises most people to hear about these star’s close connection to the property industry. On the flip side to their reality fame both families are very close to the fire in the real estate community. Shelley’s husband, and absolute legend, Christian ‘Serge’ Sergiaconi is the director of Byron Bay Property Sales. They handle all aspects of sales in the Byron Bay region. Serge was previously a camera man on shows around the world before deciding open homes and auctions were more his pace.Similarly, Michael and Carlene have launched their own property styling company: They have been promoting their services through real estate agents on the Gold Coast and are quickly becoming the hottest thing in property promotion on the GC.These property stars who had donated their time helped me swing the gavel and raise thousands of dollars to support families and children dealing with incredible adversity. These everyday Aussies are winners on both sides of the coin. As the nation’s appetite for property and property shows is at an all-time high, it’s nice to know the people behind the hype are the real deal.last_img read more

NZ behind in paid parental leave

first_imgStuff 1 April 2015Parents taking time off work to care for their children will have more money in their pockets – but compared with those in other developed countries they are getting a rough deal.On Wednesday the Government’s paid parental leave increases by two weeks to 16 weeks.This puts New Zealand in 29th place, equal with Spain and Turkey, out of the world’s 34 developed countries in Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) rankings.The only developed countries lagging behind it are Switzerland and Mexico with 14 and 12 weeks respectively and the United States, which doesn’t offer any paid parental leave.From April 1 next year, it will increase by another two weeks, putting New Zealand on par with Australian parents. That should bump the country up to 26th equal on the OECD rankings.Workplace Relations Minister Michael Woodhouse said not only had the Government committed to extending paid parental leave, it had also confirmed measures to improve access to it. read more

Five-match minimum ban for racism

first_imgRacist and homophobic abuse by players will carry a minimum five-match ban from next season, the Football Association has announced The sanction however is only half the 10-match minimum ban being introduced by UEFA into European competitions from next season, and campaigners have labelled the FA’s decision “a missed opportunity”. The FA’s sanction will be the “entry level” punishment for the “least serious” discriminatory offences with longer bans for higher level offences. Players found guilty of offences will have to attend educational programmes, and for a second offence there will be a minimum 10-game ban. Press Associationcenter_img Clubs who have two or more players found guilty of discrimination offences within a 12-month period will also face charges and could even have points deducted. Although there are no openly gay players in English professional football, the rules will apply to any player who uses homophobic abuse to any other player. The new rules come after a review of sanctions following the high-profile cases which saw John Terry banned for four matches and Luis Suarez for eight games for racist abuse on the pitch. It is understood that under the new rules both of those cases would carry longer bans than just five games. FA chairman David Bernstein said: “Importantly, today’s agreement encompasses all elements of discrimination, not just racial abuse.” There is potential embarrassment for the FA however given that it is hosting UEFA’s Congress in London next week, and Europe’s governing body will submit a resolution recommending that all member associations follow its lead on 10 matches. Piara Powar, executive director of European anti-racism body FARE and a member of FIFA’s new anti-racism task force, said: “As someone working across borders to promote anti-discrimination I think it’s a shame it can’t be the 10 games UEFA say they will implement in their own competitions and that they are recommending all national associations will adopt.” Bernstein defended the FA’s decision not to follow UEFA’s lead, saying the five-game ban had been agreed by all parts of the English game including anti-racism body Kick It Out. He said: “From our point of view it [10-match ban] has no subtlety to it. It should have subtlety to it. Any racism is unacceptable but there are different levels of offence. “It’s also a timing issue. We have been through an extensive process and have to get it approved through English football. It [UEFA’s ban] came in right at the end of the process when we have spent months getting a consensus. But if European football says the line is in the wrong place then we may have to re-evaluate that.” last_img read more
