A convicted killer who is fighting a possible June execution date that would make him the first person put to death in Nevada in 15 years is calling for the state to consider the firing squad as an option, a rare method in the United States. Attorneys for Zane Michael Floyd say he does not want to die and are challenging the state plan to use a proposed three-drug method, which led to court challenges that twice delayed the execution of another convicted killer who later took his own life in prison. “This is not a delaying tactic,” Brad Levenson, a federal public defender representing Floyd, said Monday.

OTTAWA — Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland tabled the 2021 federal budget in the House of Commons on Monday. Here are some highlights from her speech, as well as quotes from opposition leaders. Crisis and recovery "This budget is about finishing the fight against COVID. It's about healing the economic wounds left by the COVID recession. And it's about creating more jobs and prosperity for Canadians in the days — and decades — to come." Government spending "Some will say our sense of urgency is misplaced. Some will say that we are spending too much. To them, I ask this: Did you lose your job during a COVID lockdown? Were you reluctantly let go by your small-business employers, who were like a family to you, but simply could not afford your salary any longer?" Long-term care "We have failed so many of those living in long-term care facilities. To them, and to their families, let me say this: I am so sorry. We owe you so much better than this." Child care "The closing of our schools and daycares drove women's participation in the labour force down to its lowest level in more than two decades. Early learning and child care has long been a feminist issue; COVID has shown us that it is an urgent economic issue, too." Environment "We are at a pivotal moment in the green transformation. We can lead, or we can be left behind. Our government knows that the only choice for Canada is to be in the vanguard." Economic growth "Canada is a young, vast country, with a tremendous capacity for growth. This budget will fuel that. These are investments in our future, and they will yield great dividends. In today's low interest rate environment, not only can we afford these investments, it would be short-sighted of us not to make them." Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole On vaccines "This budget does nothing to answer the calls from Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia and Alberta and other provinces asking for more vaccines. Justin Trudeau has moved too slow for this virus, it's racing ahead of us now, and now he is slow in providing real help for Canadians in this budget." On what's missing from the budget "Unfortunately, this budget does next to nothing to secure the Canadian economy. Unemployed Canadians hoping to find work, workers who've had their wages cut due to lockdowns and families hoping for lower taxes to pay down their mortgages or to save for their children's education — they're all going to feel let down by this Liberal budget." On debt and the economy "The prime minister also wants to test an out-of-control debt plan without any real stimulus; one that abandons the natural resource sector entirely and provides no real fiscal anchor. This 'Ottawa knows best' approach will continue to lead (to) ballooning housing costs, higher taxes, growing risk of inflation and will leave millions of Canadians behind." On plans to amend the budget "Canada's Conservatives were very clear that we wanted to see a return to normal in this budget that would secure jobs for all Canadians in all parts of the country. Mr. Trudeau failed to put forward a plan to help Canadians and he's leaving them behind. That is why the Conservatives will be proposing amendments and our own policies, because we feel this falls so incredibly short." On voting against the budget "We're prepared to vote against it if that's what we come to as a team, but there's not the pressure that there normally is because the NDP have already said they will, in some form, support the budget. So that allows us to actually show how much Mr. Trudeau has missed the mark, propose some amendments that we may be able to secure support from other parties on". NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh No tax on ultra rich “There's no measure in this budget to say that it should be the ultra rich who should pay their fair share, it's the ultra rich who should pay for the pandemic. And in rejecting any measure to make the ultra rich pay, what Justin Trudeau is saying is that workers and families are going to have to pay the price.” Will not trigger election “We are not going to make an irresponsible decision to in any way jeopardize the safety and security of Canadians. There are a lot of ways to put pressure on the government... There's lots that we can do and there's lots that we continue to do to fight for the help that Canadians need. But it is clearly irresponsible to have an election or to in any way trigger an election while we are in the midst of this third wave. The impact on people would be devastating and we are not going to do that.” Bloc Quebecois Leader Yves-Francois Blanchet No help for seniors, no increase to health transfers "There are some good things in that budget, but there is this point: our parents and grandparents have been completely left aside in the budget. The government will have a deficit, which will go up to $150 billion, without caring enough to provide significant support to the elders and without answering positively a request from all and each of the prime ministers in Canada about a transfer for health care. I cannot so far explain to myself why he would get to that conclusion." Plans to improve the budget "We will use each and every possible procedure during the coming days in order to try to convince Parliament that some improvements have to be inserted into that budget, including, of course, support for the elders who terribly need and deserve it and the transfer for health care for the provinces which have unanimously asked for it." On voting against the budget "If there is no listening to what we ask for — health care and seniors — we are prepared to vote against the budget. The crisis we are trying to leave behind us is a health crisis. How come in the most important budget of the history of Canada there is nothing to support the health-care systems of the provinces and almost nothing for seniors and absolutely nothing for those who have the problem of being only between 65 and 75 years old?" On the NDP saying they will not trigger an election "I am absolutely certain that nobody wants an election." "The battlefield of the next election is Ontario. Who would even consider going into an election while there are still 4,000 people a day being attacked by this virus? But it is the government's responsibility to make sure that this budget is accepted by the Parliament. I seem to understand that he's made a friend: a friend who'd been his friend for a long time and which has already announced that whatever is in the budget, they would vote for it." Perrin Beatty, president and CEO, Canadian Chamber of Commerce “The budget’s focus on growth and jobs is an important step towards our economic recovery, but our growth drivers will need to shift from public investment to private investment to help get our fiscal house in order. The plan to reduce deficits over the coming years is important, but it will depend on our ability to meet our growth targets.” “To ensure businesses survive until they can become self-sustaining again, we are encouraged to see the extension of support programs like CEWS and CERS to help the hardest-hit sectors and small business. However, the government must ensure that support is not being removed too early and that the level of support does not decrease too quickly. The budget announcements on longer-term competitiveness issues like interprovincial trade barriers, productivity, and reducing the regulatory burden in Canada are very important and should be prioritized.” Chris Aylward, national president, Public Service Alliance of Canada “This historic investment in universal child care is a lifeline for parents who are struggling to afford rising child care fees. This is a major victory for our union and child care advocates who have been fighting for affordable, accessible and universal child care for decades.” “It remains disappointing however that the government has failed to act on its commitment to create a national, universal pharmacare program. Canadians need pharmacare now more than ever as workers continue to lose access to prescription drug coverage because of pandemic job losses.” Paulette Senior, president and CEO, Canadian Women’s Foundation “The pandemic impacts diverse women in profound ways, threatening gender equality gains Canada has made. Many community leaders called for an equitable feminist recovery plan to address it. This budget makes major moves in the right direction with crucial investments that will make women and gender-diverse people's lives better. And we know that when gender equity is a national priority, everybody benefits.” “With this budget, the federal government has made strides toward an economic recovery that focuses on what everyone needs. It centres the concerns of marginalized women and women-majority care workers. They are the ones who have been taking care of Canada in the pandemic. Their safety, well-being, and economic opportunities represents the best return on investment for all families and communities.” Linda Silas, president, Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions “Canada’s nurses were counting on the government to honour its previous commitments, including implementing universal public pharmacare, developing national standards for long-term care and meaningfully responding to the growing funding crisis in our health care system. It is disappointing that little progress has been made on these critical issues.” “If Canada hopes to achieve recovery beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, we will need to invest in the individuals, families and workers who form the backbone of our economy. Budget 2021 represents a missed opportunity to provide critical supports to Canadians still fighting their way through this pandemic.” Dan Kelly, president, Canadian Federation of Independent Business “Small businesses have been among the hardest hit by the pandemic, with only 56 per cent fully open across the country a year after the pandemic began. Today's budget delivered meaningful support to many, but there are still critical gaps in the federal relief programs that exclude tens of thousands of hard-hit businesses." “We will encourage Parliament to reject the planned luxury tax for certain car, truck and boat purchases on behalf of the small firms who are involved in these important sectors of our economy. While small firms understand the need for large short-term deficits to address the many COVID-related costs, we are concerned about the significant amount of non-COVID spending in this budget. Small business owners worry that today's deficits will turn into tomorrow's taxes. The government must put forward a long-term plan to balance the budget to give business owners much-needed certainty as we all work towards economic recovery.” Franco Terrazzano, federal director, Canadian Taxpayers Federation “Make no mistake: the vast majority of measures in this budget have nothing to do with pandemic supports, and everything to do with exploiting a deadly crisis to indulge in a cynical, debt-fuelled spending binge. Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland will increase permanent federal spending by more than $100 billion by 2026 with absolutely no idea how to pay for it.” “Canadians shouldn’t kid themselves: either spending will have to be reined in, or there will be walloping tax hikes coming eventually. In the meantime, the Trudeau government continues to kick the can down the road, leaving future generations to be stuck paying for their recklessness.” David Macdonald, senior economist, Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives “This budget delivers big on two lessons that we learned from the pandemic: we need a public-led recovery in the child care and long-term care sectors. But does this budget reflect what we’ve learned from the pandemic in terms of failing to prepare for this deadly third wave, fixing critical flaws in Canada’s social safety net, and preparing for future crises?” On child care “After decades of unfulfilled promises to build a universal child care system, this budget could be transformative for the sector. It includes clear targets for fee reduction, although less clear ones for more spaces and better worker pay. If these measures survive the next election and the provinces buy in, this proposal will make a huge difference for families currently struggling to afford high quality care.” On fiscal sustainability “There has been ongoing and needless concern about federal interest payments. What’s completely missing from this context is the fact that despite record expenditures, the federal interest bill is at its lowest point since the 1930s. With interest payments hitting lows not seen for a century any concern about high debt payments is certainly misplaced.” National Chief Perry Bellegarde of the Assembly of First Nations “In an exceptionally challenging and unpredictable time as the entire country faces the impacts of COVID-19, Budget 2021 puts forward more than $18 billion for Indigenous peoples — a result of sustained advocacy by First Nations to close the socioeconomic gap between First Nations people and the rest of Canada. The realities of First Nations have been exacerbated during the COVID-19 pandemic. These investments will help First Nations respond and recover from the pandemic and will help support plans to end violence against Indigenous women and girls, better support First Nations policing, revitalize our languages and implement legislation related to child and family services.” “We’ve made significant progress over the last six years toward closing the socioeconomic gap, but progress is not parity. We will not close the gap unless we see sustained investments in proper health care, education and training, water, infrastructure, and housing — basic necessities that too many of our people do not have access to and as a result, continue to hold back First Nations and all of Canada." Lorraine Whitman, president, Native Women’s Association of Canada “This budget makes what appears to be a historic investment of $18 billion in Indigenous communities over five years, including $2.2 billion to deal with the tragedy of the missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and gender-diverse people. This a sign that the government has been listening to what we, at the Native Women’s Association of Canada, have been saying and, at first glance, we are encouraged by the direction taken.” Tim Gray, executive director, Environmental Defence Canada “Budget 2021 contains unprecedented investments to tackle climate change and a range of measures targeting other environmental priorities, including a nearly $500 million reinvestment in the chemicals management plan that will provide an opportunity for improvements to the ongoing evaluation and management of toxic chemicals.” “However, though historic for Canada — $17.6 billion allocated over seven years for a green recovery — the scale of investments falls short of the ambition we see internationally, especially from the United States. A similar level of investment here would translate into $500-$600 billion over the same period. The modest level of investment in climate action, coupled with an ongoing weak regulatory approach, explains why the federal government is only committing to 36 per cent reductions in carbon emissions by 2030, very far from Canada’s fair share of 60 per cent reductions. The budget would also benefit from some more focused commitments around helping Canadian freshwater bodies under threat, and for addressing climate change impacts in the Great Lakes and other freshwater bodies.” Bryn de Chastelain, chair, Canadian Alliance of Student Associations “The doubling of the Canada Student Grant for two more years, extending the waiving of interest on federal student loans through March 2023 and ensuring that low-income student borrowers have access to more generous repayment assistance provides security for many.” “Entering the workforce is an exciting time for students, and work-integrated learning opportunities help to support a smooth transition into the workforce for many students. The investments in job creation through the Student Work Placement Program, Canada Summer Jobs and the Youth Employment and Skills Strategy is an excellent way to ensure that students are ready, and have the opportunity, to enter the labour market and meaningfully contribute to Canada’s economic growth.” Keith Stewart, senior energy strategist, Greenpeace Canada “Canadians demanded a green and just recovery. Trudeau has responded with funds for Indigenous communities, child care and climate action, but fails to tackle our fossil fuel addiction and deepening inequality. To build a better normal, we must build back fossil free." This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 19, 2021. The Canadian Press

NEW YORK, April 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized shareholder rights law firm, reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of investors that purchased Ebix, Inc. (NASDAQ: EBIX) securities between November 9, 2020 and February 19, 2021, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors have until April 23, 2021 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit. Click here to participate in the action. On February 19, 2021, after the market closed, Ebix revealed that its independent auditor, RSM US LLP (“RSM”), resigned “as a result of being unable, despite repeated inquiries, to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence that would allow it to evaluate the business purpose of significant unusual transactions that occurred in the fourth quarter of 2020” related to the Company’s gift card business in India. RSM had also stated that there was a material weakness related to Ebix’s failure to design controls “over the gift or prepaid card revenue transaction cycle sufficient to prevent or detect a material misstatement.” In addition, Ebix and RSM disagreed over the accounting treatment of $30 million that had been transferred into a commingled trust account of Ebix’s outside legal counsel in December 2020. On this news, the Company’s share price fell as much as $20.24, or approximately 40%, to close at $30.50 on February 22, 2021. The complaint, filed on February 22, 2021, alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that there was insufficient audit evidence to determine the business purpose of certain significant unusual transactions in Ebix’s gift card business in India during the fourth quarter of 2020; (2) that there was a material weakness in Company’s internal controls over the gift or prepaid revenue transaction cycle; and (3) that the Company’s independent auditor was reasonably likely to resign over disagreements with Ebix regarding $30 million that had been transferred into a commingled trust account of Ebix’s outside legal counsel; and (4) that, as a result of the foregoing, defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis. If you purchased Ebix securities during the Class Period and suffered a loss, are a long-term stockholder, have information, would like to learn more about these claims, or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Brandon Walker, Melissa Fortunato, or Marion Passmore by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, telephone at (212) 355-4648, or by filling out this contact form.

MINNEAPOLIS — Former Vice-President Walter F. Mondale, a liberal icon who lost the most lopsided presidential election after bluntly telling voters to expect a tax increase if he won, died Monday. He was 93. The death of the former senator, ambassador and Minnesota attorney general was announced in a statement from his family. No cause was cited. Mondale followed the trail blazed by his political mentor, Hubert H. Humphrey, from Minnesota politics to the U.S. Senate and the vice presidency, serving under Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1981. His own try for the White House, in 1984, came at the zenith of Ronald Reagan’s popularity. Mondale’s selection of Rep. Geraldine Ferraro of New York as his running mate made him the first major-party presidential nominee to put a woman on the ticket, but his declaration that he would raise taxes helped define the race. On Election Day, he carried only his home state and the District of Columbia. The electoral vote was 525-13 for Reagan — the biggest landslide in the Electoral College since Franklin Roosevelt defeated Alf Landon in 1936. (Sen. George McGovern got 17 electoral votes in his 1972 defeat, winning Massachusetts and Washington, D.C.) “I did my best,” Mondale said the day after the election, and blamed no one but himself. “I think you know I’ve never really warmed up to television,” he said. “In fairness to television, it never really warmed up to me.” Years later, Mondale said his campaign message had proven to be the right one. “History has vindicated me that we would have to raise taxes,” he said. “It was very unpopular, but it was undeniably correct.” In 2002, state and national Democrats looked to Mondale when Sen. Paul Wellstone, D-Minn., was killed in a plane crash less than two weeks before Election Day. Mondale agreed to stand in for Wellstone, and early polls showed him with a lead over the Republican candidate, Norm Coleman. But the 53-year-old Coleman, emphasizing his youth and vigour, out-hustled the then-74-year-old Mondale in an intense six-day campaign. Mondale was also hurt by a partisan memorial service for Wellstone, in which thousands of Democrats booed Republican politicians in attendance. One speaker pleaded: “We are begging you to help us win this election for Paul Wellstone.” Polls showed the service put off independents and cost Mondale votes. Coleman won by 3 percentage points. “The eulogizers were the ones hurt the most,” Mondale said after the election. “It doesn’t justify it, but we all make mistakes. Can’t we now find it in our hearts to forgive them and go on?” It was a particularly bitter defeat for Mondale, who even after his loss to Reagan had taken solace in his perfect record in Minnesota. “One of the things I’m most proud of,” he said in 1987, “is that not once in my public career did I ever lose an election in Minnesota.” Years after the 2002 defeat, Mondale returned to the Senate to stand beside Democrat Al Franken in 2009 when he was sworn in to replace Coleman after a drawn-out recount and court battle. Mondale started his career in Washington in 1964, when he was appointed to the Senate to replace Humphrey, who had resigned to become vice-president. Mondale was elected to a full six-year term with about 54% of the vote in 1966, although Democrats lost the governorship and suffered other election setbacks. In 1972, Mondale won another Senate term with nearly 57% of the vote. His Senate career was marked by advocacy of social issues such as education, housing, migrant workers and child nutrition. Like Humphrey, he was an outspoken supporter of civil rights. Mondale tested the waters for a presidential bid in 1974 but ultimately decided against it. “Basically I found I did not have the overwhelming desire to be president, which is essential for the kind of campaign that is required,” he said in November 1974. In 1976, Carter chose Mondale as No. 2 on his ticket and went on to unseat Gerald Ford. As vice-president, Mondale had a close relationship with Carter. He was the first vice-president to occupy an office in the White House, rather than in a building across the street. Mondale travelled extensively on Carter’s behalf, and advised him on domestic and foreign affairs. While he lacked Humphrey’s charisma, Mondale had a droll sense of humour. When he dropped out of the 1976 presidential sweepstakes, he said, “I don’t want to spend the next two years in Holiday Inns.” Reminded of that shortly before he was picked as Carter’s running mate, Mondale said, “I’ve checked and found that they’re all redecorated, and they’re marvelous places to stay.” Mondale never backed away from his liberal principles. “I think that the country more than ever needs progressive values,” Mondale said in 1989. That year, Democrats tried to persuade him to challenge Minnesota GOP Sen. Rudy Boschwitz, but he decided against making the race, saying it was time to make way for a new generation. “One of the requirements of a healthy party is that it renews itself,” he said at the time. “You can’t keep running Walter Mondale for everything.” That paved the way for Wellstone to win the Democratic nomination, and go on to upset Boschwitz. Wellstone had been preparing to take on Mondale in a primary but would have been a heavy underdog. The son of a Methodist minister and a music teacher, Walter Frederick Mondale was born Jan. 5, 1928, in tiny Ceylon, Minnesota, and grew up in several small southern Minnesota towns. He was only 20 when he served as a congressional district manager for Humphrey’s successful Senate campaign in 1948. His education, interrupted by a two-year stint in the Army, culminated with a law degree from the University of Minnesota in 1956. Mondale began a law practice in Minneapolis and ran the successful 1958 gubernatorial campaign of Democrat Orville Freeman, who appointed Mondale state attorney general in 1960. Mondale was elected attorney general in the fall of 1960 and was reelected in 1962. As attorney general, Mondale moved quickly into civil rights, antitrust and consumer protection cases. He was the first Minnesota attorney general to make consumer protection a campaign issue. After his White House years, Mondale served from 1993-96 as President Bill Clinton’s ambassador to Japan, fighting for U.S. access to markets ranging from cars to cellular phones. He helped avert a trade war in June 1995 over autos and auto parts, persuading Japanese officials to give American automakers more access to Japanese dealers and pushing Japanese carmakers to buy U.S. parts. Mondale kept his ties to the Clintons. In 2008, he endorsed Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton for president, switching his allegiance only after Barack Obama sealed the nomination. When Democrats came to him after Wellstone’s death, Mondale was working at the Minneapolis law firm of Dorsey & Whitney and serving on corporate and non-profit boards. He returned to the firm after the brief campaign. Mondale and his wife, Joan Adams Mondale, were married in 1955. During his vice presidency, she pushed for more government support of the arts and gained the nickname “Joan of Art.” She had minored in art in college and worked at museums in Boston and Minneapolis. The couple had two sons, Ted and William, and a daughter, Eleanor. Eleanor Mondale became a broadcast journalist and TV host, with credits including “CBS This Morning” and programs with E! Entertainment Television. Ted Mondale served six years in the Minnesota Senate and made an unsuccessful bid for the Democratic nomination for governor in 1998. William Mondale served for a time as an assistant attorney general. Joan Mondale died in 2014 at age 83 after an extended illness. ___ Former Associated Press writer Brian Bakst contributed to this report. The Associated Press
