Sao Paulo Governor Joao Doria blamed the delay - the second China export clearance to hit production this year - on "diplomatic ill-will" and said the federal government should apologize to Beijing for its harsh criticism of China.

Ohio will give away $1 million prizes to 5 adults and 5 full-ride public college scholarships to teens who get vaccinated, Gov. Mike DeWine said.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans dumped GOP Rep. Liz Cheney from her House leadership post Wednesday for her persistent repudiation of Donald Trump’s election falsehoods, underscoring the hold the defeated and twice-impeached former president retains on his party. She defiantly insisted she’ll keep trying to wrench the party away from him and his “destructive lies.” Meeting behind closed doors, GOP lawmakers needed less than 20 minutes and a voice vote to oust the Wyoming congresswoman from her job as their No. 3 House leader. The banishment, urged by Trump and other top Republicans, showed his ability to upend the careers of antagonists, even those from GOP royalty. Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, has repeatedly rebuked Trump for his oft-repeated falsehood that his 2020 reelection was fraudulently stolen from him and for his encouragement of supporters who assaulted the Capitol on Jan. 6. On Wednesday she unrepentantly lashed out anew. “If you want leaders who will enable and spread his destructive lies, I’m not your person,” she told her colleagues before the vote, according to a person who provided her remarks on condition of anonymity. “You have plenty of others to choose from. That will be their legacy.” Just minutes after she accused her fellow Republicans of dishonestly buttressing Trump, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told reporters at the White House, “I don’t think anybody is questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election. I think that is all over with.” McCarthy spoke a week after Trump released a statement saying, “The Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 will be, from this day forth, known as THE BIG LIE!” Cheney’s critics say her offense wasn’t her view of Trump but her persistence in publicly expressing it, undermining the unity they want party leaders to display in advance of next year’s elections, when they hope to win House control. Several also say GOP voters' allegiance to Trump means the party's electoral prospects without him would be dismal. Cheney's ouster effectively means the GOP is setting a remarkable requirement for admission to its highest ranks: adherence to, or at least silence about, Trump’s fallacious claim about widespread voting fraud. In states around the country, officials and judges of both parties found no evidence to support his assertions. Cheney, 54, would seem to have an uphill climb in her quest to redirect the GOP away from Trump. She's told Republicans she's not quitting Congress and will run for reelection next year, but she will have to survive a near-certain GOP primary challenge from a Trump-recruited opponent. Even if she returns to the House, it is unclear how loud her voice will be inside a party that has all but disowned her. “Bring it on," Cheney said of a potential challenge by a Trump ally, in a portion of an interview released by NBC News. And though she has establishment lineage and embraces classical GOP conservative stances, it almost seems the party has evolved out from under her. Polls show Trump's hold is deep and wide on the party's voters. And many of the time-tested conservative views she and her father share — including a belief in assertively projecting U.S. military force abroad — have lost ground to Trump's inward-focused America First agenda. Cheney showed no signs of being bashful about her mission. Outside the GOP meeting, she told reporters that the country needs a Republican Party "that is based upon fundamental principles of conservatism, and I am committed and dedicated to ensuring that that’s how this party goes forward, and I plan to lead the fight to do that.” She added, “I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office.” Wednesday's voice vote by House Republicans means there is no precise way to measure how much support Cheney would have had, though only a handful of GOP colleagues have spoken out on her behalf. “What happened today was sad,” said Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., another Trump critic and one of the few Republicans who have publicly defended her. “Liz committed the only sin of being consistent and telling the truth. The truth is that the election was not stolen.” Hard-right conservatives, among Cheney’s fiercest critics, were exultant. And Trump himself took a sharp-elbowed victory lap, saying, “Liz Cheney is a bitter, horrible human being. I watched her yesterday and realized how bad she is for the Republican Party. She has no personality or anything good having to do with politics or our Country." “Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey, goodbye Liz Cheney,” tweeted Rep. Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina. “You can’t have a conference chair who recites Democrat talking points,” said Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, a conservative leader using the formal title for Cheney’s former post. As if to underscore Jordan’s contention, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said, “Congresswoman Liz Cheney is a leader of great courage, patriotism and integrity. Today, House Republicans declared that those values are unwelcome in the Republican Party.” Participants said Cheney received a polite standing ovation after her remarks inside Wednesday’s meeting. Then she had to endure what Rep. Byron Donalds of Florida said was a “deafening” voice vote to topple her. Her replacement in the party’s House leadership is expected to be Rep. Elise Stefanik of upstate New York, who entered the House in 2015 at age 30, then the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. Stefanik owns a more moderate voting record than Cheney but has evolved into a vigorous Trump defender who’s echoed some of his claims about widespread election cheating. Some of Washington’s hardest-right conservatives have remained wary of Stefanik’s moderate record, but no challenger has emerged. Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., said the vote on replacing Cheney will occur Friday. Cheney arrived in Congress in 2017, and by November 2018 was elected to her leadership job unopposed. Her career path seemed to potentially include runs at becoming speaker, senator or even president. She occasionally clashed with Trump during his presidency over issues like the U.S. withdrawal from Syria. But virtually open warfare between the two commenced in January once she became one of 10 House Republicans to back his second impeachment for inciting his supporters’ deadly Capitol assault. The Senate acquitted him. Cheney withstood a February effort to boot her from leadership in a 145-61 secret ballot, with a McCarthy speech on her behalf credited with saving her. That didn't happen this time. ___ AP reporter Jill Colvin contributed to this report. Alan Fram And Kevin Freking, The Associated Press

CALGARY — Wanting to provide players with some certainty about the future after months without it, Hockey Canada named its roster of women invited to try out for the 2022 Olympic team. Of the 28 announced Wednesday, 10 forwards, three defenders and one goaltender played on the 2018 Olympic team that lost the final to the United States in a shootout. Defender Meaghan Mikkelson of St. Albert, Alta., and forwards Marie-Philip Poulin of Beauceville, Que., and Rebecca Johnston of Sudbury, Ont., are three-time Olympians having won gold in both 2010 and 2014. The COVID-19 pandemic has limited Canada's national team to just five international games, all against the Americans, in the last two years. The world championship in Nova Scotia was cancelled two years in a row. The 2021 tournament was abruptly called off last month on a day when international teams were to depart for Canada. So three Canadian-team camps since January had an outsized influence over which women were invited to congregate in Calgary in late July to start preparations for Beijing. Hockey Canada's Gina Kingsbury said she consulted with Canada's veteran players and decided the 47 players in the national-team pool, whether they were named to the centralization roster or not, needed to know their status. "We leaned on our leadership group to advise us what the need of the group was," said the director of national women's teams. "It was pretty evident everyone was ready to move forward. "It was time for us to make the decisions that we needed to make, to also give our athletes the opportunity to get organized and get their minds wrapped around moving to Calgary in a few months. "For those athletes we're not moving on with, giving them that time and space to make decisions for themselves as well." Kingsbury, who won gold with Poulin, Johnston and Mikkelson in 2010, didn't wait until after the Professional Women's Hockey Players' Association's Dream Gap Tour in Calgary later this month, even though many players in the national-team pool will be among 60 participating in the three-team tournament. "I don't think the Gap Tour would have given us much more data," she said. Canada's 2022 Olympic team will be experienced up front, but less so on the back end. Women's Olympic hockey rosters are 23 players, including three goaltenders, compared to the men's 25-player rosters. Canada's goalies will be Ann-Renée Desbiens of La Malbaie, Que., Kristen Campbell of Brandon, Man., and Emerance Maschmeyer of Bruderheim, Alta, competing for coveted Olympic starts. Desbiens posted an 18-save shutout in a 5-0 win over Russia in her lone start in Pyeongchang. Mikkelson and 2018 alumni Jocelyne Larocque of Ste. Anne, Man., and Renata Fast of Burlington, Ont., were among nine blue-liners invited. Defenders Erin Ambrose of Keswick, Ont., and Micah Zandee-Hart of Saanichton, B.C., were among the final cuts from the 2018 squad. They'll get another chance to make the Olympic team. Poulin, Johnston, Melodie Daoust of Valleyfield, Que., Brianne Jenner of Oakville, Ont., Hamilton's Sarah Nurse, Toronto's Natalie Spooner, Laura Stacey of Kleinburg, Ont., Blayre Turnbull of Stellarton, N.S., Saskatoon's Emily Clark and Jill Saulnier of Halifax all played for Canada in 2018, and are among 16 forwards on the roster. Defenders Ashton Bell of Deloraine, Man., Jamie Bourbonnais of Mississauga, Ont., Ella Shelton of Ingersoll, Ont., and Claire Thompson of Toronto were also named to the centralization roster. Forwards Victoria Bach of Milton, Ont., Sarah Fillier of Georgetown, Ont., Julia Gosling of London, Ont., Emma Maltais of Burlington, Ont., Kristin O'Neill of Oakville, Ont., and Jamie Lee Rattray of Kanata, Ont., are among players hoping to make their Olympic debuts in Beijing. Defenders Laura Fortino and Lauriane Rougeau, who won Olympic gold in 2014, defender Brigette Lacquette, who won silver in 2018, and forward Loren Gabel, who had a breakout 2019 world championship, were among those who participated in last month's camp in Halifax, but not invited to Olympic tryouts. "We really leaned on what we saw now," Kingsbury said. "If we felt there was a young athlete that possibly had a higher ceiling and we projected they would be at a better spot come February of 2022, that certainly played a role. "It was a challenge. Would we have liked to have more games under our belt and more time to evaluate and make these decisions? Absolutely, but that wasn't what we were dealt." A wrinkle to Canada's preparation is Hockey Canada still intends to host the women's championship Aug. 20-31 at a location yet to be named. "We also want to be ready for worlds and we want to win worlds," Kingsbury said. "That's our number one objective and then we can focus on Beijing. "It's a final exam on Day 1 of class. You're starting with a big event and you finish with a big event." This report by The Canadian Press was first published May 12, 2021. Donna Spencer, The Canadian Press

MEXICO CITY (AP) — The United States filed its first labor complaint with Mexico Wednesday under the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement, after an old-guard union was caught allegedly destroying ballots at a General Motors plant in northern Mexico. The U.S. Trade Representative invoked the “rapid response” mechanism under the trade pact, known as the USMCA. The mechanism allows a panel to determine whether Mexico is enforcing labor laws that allow workers to choose their union and vote on contracts and union leadership. If Mexico is found not to be enforcing its laws, sanctions could be invoked, including prohibiting some products from entering the United States. “Using USMCA to help protect freedom of association and collective bargaining rights in Mexico helps workers both at home and in Mexico, by stopping a race to the bottom,” said U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai. Mexican auto workers make one-eighth to one-tenth of the wages of their U.S. counterparts, something that has spurred a massive relocation of auto plants to Mexico and a loss of U.S. jobs. For decades, corrupt Mexican unions signed low-wage "protection contracts” behind workers’ backs, often before plants were even opened. Union votes were held by show of hands, or not at all. Workers at many factories in Mexico were unaware they even had a union until they saw dues deducted from their paychecks. As part of efforts to get the USMCA, which replaced the old North American Free Trade Agreement, Mexico passed labor law reforms stating all union votes would be by secret ballot, and workers at all factories in Mexico could vote on whether to keep their current union. It was one such vote among the 6,494 employees of GM transmission and pickup plants in the northern Mexico city of Silao in April that triggered the complaint. Workers at the plant had been asked to vote yes or no on whether to recognize the union that has long controlled the plant’s labor contract. That union is part of the CTM, which formed part of the the party that ruled Mexico for most of the past century. The Labor Department said that inspectors “discovered that at the offices where the union itself had the ballot boxes, ballots that were part of the vote had been destroyed, making it impossible to continue with the vote.” Israel Cervantes, who helps lead the Generating Movement campaign to get a new union, and who was dismissed from the plant two years ago, said CTM union officials had broken open ballot boxes, destroyed “no” votes and replaced them with ballots marked “yes." Cervantes said he was encouraged by the U.S. move, “because this suggests that there won't be more violations of workers' rights.” In a statement Wednesday, GM said it “supports the labor provisions of the USMCA, including rapid response,” and said it will cooperate with authorities “to guarantee the integrity of voting on the union contract at out manufacturing complex in Silao.” “We do not think there was any involvement of General Motors in the alleged violations that occurred at our plants in Silao,” GM said, but noted it had hired an outside consultant to conduct a review of what happened. On Tuesday, Mexico’s Labor Department declared the April vote invalid, citing “serious irregularities,” and ordered it be re-held within one month with extra security to avoid pressure from the company or the old union, “to ensure workers that their vote will be peaceful, personal, free and secret.” Cervantes praised that decision, saying “the (voting) process will be subject to better oversight” than the April 21-22 vote, in which ballot boxes were kept at the old union's offices. Even Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who is notoriously sensitive about outside pressures, welcomed the USTR decision and said Mexico would respond. “It is a good thing, because the treaty before (NAFTA) did not take the labor situation into account, and now the treaty stipulates that employees have to receive fair wages and benefits, and moreover, choose their union representation freely and democratically,” López Obrador said. Later Wednesday, Mexico's Labor Department said it had launched an investigation of the case and promised to publish the results and take any measures needed to repair the situation. Mexico is still in the middle of a process of holding votes at workplaces to accept or reject existing unions. The process started in 2019 and ends in 2023, and will have to be repeated at every unionized factory and workplace in Mexico. Some experts have criticized the process, because employees are not allowed to choose between a new union and an old one. Instead, they are essentially asked to decide between the old union and none at all. Labor Secretary Luisa Maria Alcalde has acknowledged it is an uphill battle because some union leaders “haven’t gotten the message” that they can no longer operate behind the backs of workers. Fernando Salgado, the CTM assistant general secretary, did not respond directly to the accusations in April, but did say: “We have had two fundamental values: equality and the respect we must show for freedom in union organizing.” When the old North American Free Trade Agreement was approved in 1994, leaders promised it would boost Mexico’s wages, something that never happened, in part because of unrepresentative unions. The USMCA includes some provisions to stem the flood of manufacturing jobs moving south, requiring that 40-45 percent of auto content be made by workers earning at least $16 per hour. On Monday, a group of U.S. and Mexican unions filed their own labor complaint involving the Tridonex auto parts assembly plant in the Mexican border city of Matamoros, where workers have been fighting to join a new union. The outside organizer of that union, lawyer Susana Prieto, has been jailed, harassed and prohibited from traveling to Tamaulipas, the state where Matamoros is located. She says about 600 workers at the Tridonex plant have been laid off in retaliation for supporting the new union. Cardone, the U.S. company that operate the Tridonex plant, said in a statement that “we do not believe that the allegations in the complaint are accurate and welcome a full inquiry so that the facts can be disclosed.” By Mark Stevenson, The Associated Press

The Native Council of P.E.I. says it needs funding for its own homeless shelter after it says Bedford MacDonald House discriminated against some Indigenous clients. Lynn Bradley, the council's mental health and addictions co-ordinator, said she is telling clients not to use the shelter because the council worries they'll face discrimination or be turned away. "Right now if we cannot ensure the physical safety and security of our community, then we have to explore other options." She said a recent report that did not support those allegations is "unacceptable," and that investigators did not contact the council to interview the people making the allegations. "That's sad to me because we do have evidence that some of our clients were not given shelter supports due to behaviour." An investigative report found no evidence of discrimination at Bedford MacDonald House, though the people making the allegations were never interviewed.(Laura Meader/CBC) The Salvation Army, which is in charge of Bedford MacDonald House, retained HR Atlantic to investigate the allegations and prepare the report. However, the report said investigators were "stymied by lack of access to the individuals making allegations about discriminatory conduct at Bedford MacDonald House." "On the basis of the available evidence, the investigators are not able to conclude on a balance of probabilities that Bedford MacDonald House or any of its staff members discriminated against individuals on the basis of any protected ground," the report said. "No findings of discrimination are made. The investigators specifically decline to find discrimination on the basis of physical disability, criminal record, or ethnicity, cultural or racial heritage." Referenced in legislature Maj. Jamie Locke, who handles public relations for the Salvation Army, said Bedford MacDonald House does not discriminate and serves all vulnerable Islanders. But he did express disappointment about the lack of interviews. "We wish that there had been access, that there had been opportunity for a conversation to take place between the investigator and those who had made the allegations." The Native Council of P.E.I. is the self-governing authority for all off-reserve Indigenous people living on P.E.I.(Laura Meader/CBC) Brad Trivers, minister of social development and housing, raised the issue in the legislature Wednesday. "I think the allegations that were made are very serious allegations and are ones that we take very seriously," he said. The Native Council of P.E.I., meanwhile, is purchasing tents to house clients while advocating for Indigenous-run shelters in Charlottetown, which did exist in the past. "I do think think that as Indigenous people we have unique histories — intergenerational trauma, intergenerational strengths that sometimes come into play when we're trying to access services," Bradley said.
