VANCOUVER — British Columbia's Liberal party took the first steps Thursday towards selecting a new leader while also addressing a constitutional technicality that still has Andrew Wilkinson as party leader. The party appointed former cabinet minister Colin Hansen as co-chair of an organizing committee to oversee the campaign. A date hasn't been set yet to choose a new leader. Hansen, known as a stalwart in the governments of former premier Gordon Campbell, will co-chair the seven-member committee with Victoria lawyer Roxanne Helme. Interim Liberal Leader Shirley Bond said she is energized by the formation of the campaign oversight committee and downplayed the fact Wilkinson hasn't followed the protocol to resign under the party's constitution. "I just have to say this, that British Columbians this morning didn't wake up and worry about whether or not there was constitutionally a technical issue with who's the leader of the B.C. Liberal Party," she said at a news conference. Wilkinson announced his resignation after the Liberals lost the election last fall and dropped seats that were once considered safe for the party. In the days following the Oct. 24 election, Wilkinson held a brief news conference where he said he planned to resign, but would remain leader until a replacement is chosen. About one month later he posted on Facebook: "It is now time for me to leave the role as Opposition leader as voters in B.C. have made their preference clear." Although Wilkinson hasn't official resigned, Bond said she is leading the Liberals. "I'm speaking to you today as the leader of the Opposition, make no mistake about that," she said. Wilkinson is not receiving any leadership benefits from the party and he has no leadership responsibilities, Bond said. "I can assure you this, Andrew Wilkinson is focusing on his role as an MLA," she said. "He has no responsibilities, no stipend, nothing like that related to the B.C. Liberal Party. We certainly expect a letter of resignation at some point in the next few weeks, but the fact of the matter is I lead the official Opposition." Wilkinson was not immediately available for comment. Bond, who has already ruled herself out of the Liberal leadership race, said 2021 will be a year of reflection, renewal and rebuilding for the party. "In the meantime, the party will continue to create and unveil the leadership contest rules and how it will work," she said. "I'm quite energized looking at what candidates might emerge and eventually they will transition to take on the role that I have now." Other members of the organizing committee to help pick a leader include legislature members Jackie Tegart, Derek Lew, Sarah Sidhu, Don Silversides and Cameron Stolz. The committee's mandate includes determining the timeline for the leadership election, establishing the campaign's rules and implementing the election process for party members. — By Dirk Meissner in Victoria This report by The Canadian Press was first published Jan. 21, 2021.

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon announced plans Thursday to move ahead with a military trial for three men held at the U.S. base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, who are suspected of involvement in bombings in Indonesia in 2002 and 2003. A senior military legal official approved non-capital charges that include conspiracy, murder and terrorism for their alleged roles in the deadly bombing of Bali nightclubs in 2002 and a year later of a J.W. Marriott Hotel in Jakarta. The men have been in U.S. custody since 2003, and military prosecutors have previously moved to charge them before the military commission at Guantanamo, but the Pentagon official, known as a convening authority, never signed off on the charges. The next step would be an arraignment at the base, but proceedings there have been halted by the pandemic. Encep Nurjaman, who is known as Hambali, is alleged to have been the leader of Jemaah Islamiyah, a Southeast Asian affiliate of al-Qaida. The Pentagon said in a brief statement on the case that he is accused with Mohammed Nazir Bin Lep and Mohammed Farik Bin Amin of planning and providing assistance in the attacks. The 2002 bombings on the tourist island of Bali killed 202 people, mostly foreign tourists, and left a deep scar in Indonesia. The attack on the J.W. Marriott Hotel in Jakarta killed 12. Military proceedings at Guantanamo have bogged down for years because of legal challenges and the logistical difficulty of holding court hearings at the remote base. The most prominent case, involving five men charged in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack, has been stuck in the pre-trial phase since their arraignment in May 2012 with no date yet established for the trial. The U.S. holds 40 men at Guantanamo. President Joe Biden has said he favours closing the detention centre but has not yet disclosed his plans for the facility. The Associated Press
With the Minim Remote Scorecard, businesses can measure their remote work technology stack and plan ahead with actionable insights Manchester, NH, Jan. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- The past year has changed the way businesses work: 82% of companies plan to permit remote working post-pandemic (Gartner). To help businesses adapt to this shift, Minim (OTCQB: MINM), the creator of innovative internet access products, today launched a free remote work technology assessment called the Minim® Remote Scorecard, featuring solutions from providers such as Zoom Video Communications, Dialpad, Prodoscore, and IGI Cybersecurity. “Remote workers direly need IT assistance and the right tools— Minim has found that 38% of homes experience malware attacks in any given month, and approximately one third of remote workers are still facing technical issues that affect their productivity,” said Tyler Craig, VP Business Development & Channel Sales at Minim. “We are so proud to partner with advanced technology vendors in the Telarus partner ecosystem to bring an intuitive and useful tool to business leaders and IT management.” In addition to delivering personalized technology recommendations for companies of all industries and sizes, the assessment delivers a final score that measures how prepared a business is to secure, support, and empower its distributed workforce. These insights can be leveraged to transform remote working infrastructure beyond a stopgap, and instead to an encompassing strategy that helps teams succeed. “Companies en masse were forced to put their security and technology tools to the test in 2020,” said Dominique Singer, VP Business Development, Cybersecurity, at Telarus. “The rapid shift to remote work highlighted the business need for innovative remote work technology solutions that tackle key challenges — from employee productivity and communication to the overall WFH connected experience. This assessment will help companies learn about such solutions from the Telarus portfolio that are positioned to help.” The Minim Remote Scorecard is divided into five sections that explore vital elements of any successful remote work strategy: Section 1: Business Profile | Gathers information on the nature of the business and implementation of its current remote workforceSection 2: Security Awareness | Assesses the comprehensiveness of the business’s cybersecurity awareness training resources for employeesSection 3: Network Security and Performance | Hones in on the employee’s WFH connected experience and identifies gaps that may be putting business systems and sensitive data at riskSection 4: Unified Communications | Examines how employees are set up for success in their virtual work environments — from communication to project management and workplace engagementSection 5: Technology Support | Explores the businesses’ investment in remote worker security and performance from a technical support perspective “The workplace is no longer a destination; it’s simply a place where employees should be empowered to do their best work,” said Thomas Moran, Chief Strategy Officer at Prodoscore. “There’s no better time than now for businesses to reevaluate their remote working model and learn about innovative technologies that can be put in place to address the employee experience, team productivity, distributed security, and more.” “The pandemic is an important moment for companies to reconsider their remote work infrastructure,” agrees Mike Kane, VP of Global Channel Sales at Dialpad: “With the rise of a modern, mobile workforce, it will be important for organizations and individuals to implement cloud-based platforms that enable employees to stay connected and productive. We are thrilled to be a resource for companies making the transition to a more distributed workforce. This includes our AI-powered calling, conferencing and contact center solutions that provide companies with the technology to work from anywhere, as well as tools like Minim's Remote Scorecard that help leaders better prepare for the future." The Coronavirus pandemic has accelerated the need for a digital transformation in numerous industries and businesses; even those who’ve completed this process must now reevaluate their practices.

Area families of residents in long-term-care are raising concerns about transparency as the number of COVID-19 cases and deaths in the sector continue to rise across the province. At a virtual town hall held by a group called Voices of LTC Thursday, family members from Hamilton and St. Catharines shared their stories and called for change. Hamilton resident Lainie Tessier spoke about her mother, a former resident of Shalom Village in Westdale, who became sick with COVID-19 and died in December. She previously told The Spectator the home didn’t wear PPE right away, despite warnings about her mother’s symptoms. Shalom Village is the city’s largest current outbreak. The outbreak at Grace Villa on east Mountain was declared over as of Jan. 19. Shalom has had 214 cases since Dec. 9 in its long-term-care and assisted-living units combined. Of those, 112 are resident cases and 97 are staff cases. The home reported Jan. 20 that there are nine active resident and 11 active staff cases. Twenty people have died with COVID-19 at Shalom, while Grace Villa had 44 deaths in less than two months. That doesn’t include people who died without COVID-19. Experts have previously warned about deaths from other outbreak-related conditions, such as not being attended to due to staffing shortages. Neither Grace Villa or Shalom Village have released those numbers, citing privacy. Tessier says it shows an absence of transparency. “They don’t want it to look as catastrophic as it is,” she said in the town hall. Public health says a total of 156 people have died with COVID-19 in long-term-care and retirement home outbreaks in Hamilton so far. Asked for the total number including those who died without COVID-19, spokesperson Jacqueline Durlov said public health does not have that information. “Each home holds this information and regulations about releasing it,” she said in an email. No new deaths were reported in Hamilton seniors’ homes Thursday. However, half of the four new outbreaks in the city were in seniors’ homes. Ridgeview Long Term Care Home in Stoney Creek and Amica Dundas are both in outbreak with one case each. Several ongoing outbreaks also saw new cases. Maxwell’s Retirement Home reported 13 new cases, for a total of 15. Macassa Lodge has 34 cases, including three new ones. That includes 20 resident and 14 staff cases. There was also a new case at Blackadar Continuing Care Centre, which now has 11 cases. The Meadows Long-Term Care Home reported a new death Jan. 20, its sixth so far. On Thursday, public health said all 27 long-term-care homes in the city have received COVID-19 vaccines. In addition, the mobile clinic was set to complete its final round to 12 retirement homes — up from the previous 10 — by the end of Jan. 21. Durlov said the mobile clinic administered about 4,594 doses of the vaccine by the end of Jan. 20, including mostly seniors’ home residents, along with “a handful” of staff and “possibly” essential caregivers. The city’s goal was to vaccinate 4,900 residents in seniors’ homes with the mobile clinic this week. Seniors’ mental health has also been a topic of concern during the pandemic, including in long-term-care homes. On Thursday, the province announced support for seniors’ mental health, including 46 mental health beds for 16 hospitals across the province. Four of the beds will go to Niagara Health System and two to Joseph Brant Hospital in Burlington. No Hamilton hospitals were included.

The alleged move could be part of a bid to improve compliance with quarantine restrictions.
On Thursday, two sources familiar with the matter told Reuters that Pfizer (NYSE: PFE) and BioNTech (NASDAQ: BNTX) have agreed to supply a program co-led by the World Health Organization (WHO) with their COVID-19 vaccine. The COVAX program is a group effort coordinated by the WHO, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. Details regarding the number of doses Pfizer and BioNTech have agreed to and the price per dose the COVAX program intends to pay the partners are still unclear.
Nothing illustrates the political passions of a television network's audience quite like ratings for a presidential inaugural. The 6.53 million people who watched President Joe Biden take the oath of office and deliver his inaugural address on MSNBC Wednesday was a whopping 338% bigger than its audience for Donald Trump's swearing in four years ago, the Nielsen company said. On the flip side, Fox News Channel's audience of 2.74 million for Biden on Wednesday represented a nearly 77% drop from its viewership for Trump in 2017, Nielsen said.
Acting Homeland Security Secretary David Pekoske issued a memo calling for deportations to be halted for 100 days by Friday at the latest.
A new form of African swine fever identified in Chinese pig farms is most likely caused by illicit vaccines, industry insiders say, a fresh blow to the world's largest pork producer, still recovering from a devastating epidemic of the virus. Two new strains of African swine fever have infected more than 1,000 sows on several farms owned by New Hope Liuhe, China's fourth-largest producer, as well as pigs being fattened for the firm by contract farmers, said Yan Zhichun, the company's chief science officer. Though the strains, which are missing one or two key genes present in the wild African swine fever virus, don't kill pigs like the disease that ravaged China's farms in 2018 and 2019, they cause a chronic condition that reduces the number of healthy piglets born, Yan told Reuters.
The New Democratic Party has pledged changes to medical transportation in Labrador, which the party says will ease the burden on patients traveling to St. John's for procedures — but can't say exactly how an NDP government would manage any additional costs to the health care system. NDP Leader Alison Coffin unveiled the campaign policy Thursday, telling CBC News the change would remove the onus from patients to pay for flights and wait for reimbursement. "We believe that cost should be covered up front, and individuals will have far less to worry about — they can concentrate on getting better," Coffin said. "No one who needs any medical care ought to have to worry about being able to afford to make it to that appointment." Under the present rules, the Medical Transportation Assistance Program pays for airfare, taxis, private vehicle usage, hotels, meals, buses and ferries for those who require special medical services that aren't available nearby. Residents requesting financial assistance must apply to the program and sometimes pay a deductible. The Department of Health says on its website that patients may be eligible for partial pre-payment of economy airfare, and encourages applicants to apply two months in advance of their medical appointment. 'Massive issue' Coffin said the loss of all Air Canada routes to and from Labrador airports has increased the risk of a higher financial burden on patients. "I think that we need to look at exactly what the costs are going to be and then adjust that cap accordingly," she said. Ideally, she said, a government clerk would book a ticket for the patient, who would simply need to show up at the airport and board the plane. Coffin did not detail how government might account for missed flights, for instance, but said her government would "take a gradual approach to ensure that we can afford" changes to the reimbursement policy. "I think we need to have a good look at the public accounts, and I know that the auditor general's report has not been out on that yet, but what we do know is that people need help right now." Labrador West candidate Jordan Brown, the incumbent MHA for the region elected in 2019, called medical transport affordability a "massive issue." "We have people here in this town who are fundraising for patients to try to get them up to their appointments," Brown said Thursday. "The problem is some people, especially seniors and people on fixed income, they don't have two grand sometimes to buy this ticket for themselves." Brown also said some people aren't reimbursed the full cost of a last-minute ticket, leaving them on the hook for hundreds of dollars. The Liberal Party has also promised changes to health care in Newfoundland and Labrador, with leader Andrew Furey vowing Wednesday to overhaul sexual and mental health curricula and supply schools with free pads and tampons.

Brandon Hagy didn't find out he was in the field at The American Express until three days before it started. Hagy took the first-round lead Thursday with an 8-under 64 on the Nicklaus course, staying one shot ahead of South Korea's Byeong Hun An in the opening tournament of the PGA Tour's West Coast swing. Hagy racked up 10 birdies, including three streaks of three in a row.
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — On the first day of Joe Biden's presidency, Native Americans had reason to celebrate. Biden halted construction of the border wall that threatened to physically separate Indigenous people living on both sides. He also revoked a permit for the Keystone XL oil pipeline that tribes fought in court for years, and he agreed to restore the boundaries of the first national monument created specifically at the request of tribes in southern Utah. Inaugural events showcased tribes across the country in traditional regalia, dancing and in prayer. But amid the revelry, some Native Americans saw a glitch in Wednesday's swearing-in ceremony. The only mention of Indigenous people came in the benediction delivered by the Rev. Silvester Beaman. And then there was the mishmash of songs sung by Jennifer Lopez that included lyrics from “This Land is Your Land." The folk tune is popular around campfires and in grade schools, but it also called to mind the nation's long history of land disputes involving tribes. “Oh, I love J.Lo," said Kristen Herring, who is Lumbee and lives in Austin, Texas. “It wasn't super disappointing that she sang it. But I was like, ‘Oh, why did that have to be on the list of things to sing?’" Woody Guthrie, who wrote the song in the 1940s, meant it as a retort to “God Bless America” and a rebuke to monetizing land at a time of economic crisis, said Gustavus Stadler, an English professor and author of “Woodie Guthrie: An Intimate Life." Lopez put a twist on it, throwing in part of the Pledge of Allegiance in Spanish that translates to “justice for all.” The Guthrie song has been a symbol of equality, inclusion and unity. Lady Gaga sang a rendition of it at the Super Bowl months after Donald Trump took office. It was part of Barack Obama's inaugural programming, with a trio of singers, including Bruce Springsteen, adding back some of the original, more controversial verses. But arriving amid an effort by some tribes to be recognized as stewards of ancestral land, a movement known as Land Back, the lyrics hit the wrong note for some tribal members. “It's a nice little sentiment that America is this mixing pot,” said Benny Wayne Sully, who is Sicangu Lakota and lives in Los Angeles. “But does anybody believe this land was made for you and me? Or was it made for white folks? People forget this land was made of brown people before it was colonized." Rep. Deb Haaland, who is from Laguna Pueblo in New Mexico, acknowledged that perspective in a virtual welcoming to the inaugural events over the weekend. She's been nominated to lead the Interior Department, which oversees tribal affairs. If confirmed, she would be the first Native American in a Cabinet post. That's one of the reasons Cherie Tebo was able to look past the song that she said was inappropriate and emphasized how little some Americans know about Indigenous people. She sees an opportunity for tribes to have a seat at the table in Biden's administration, citing Haaland and Winnebago tribal member Ann Marie Bledsoe Downes, who has been named a deputy solicitor for the Interior Department. “In order to make it work, ‘this land is your land, this land is my land,' people (need) to understand it doesn’t belong to us,” said Tebo, who also is Winnebago. “If anything, we belong to it. And when our land is sick, we are sick." ___ Fonseca is a member of The Associated Press' Race and Ethnicity team. Follow her on Twitter at https://twitter.com/FonsecaAP.

The territorial government's business advisory council, in place for less than one year, will "cease its regular meetings" effective immediately, according to a press release sent Thursday. Though the release notes the territory's department of Industry, Tourism and Investment (ITI) is a "good partner" in its work, it goes on to say that the group did not "feel that a plan for economic recovery is a focus of the current Executive Council," meaning cabinet. "The Council members will be happy to come together to meet with ITI if there are matters on which the [territorial government] seeks specific guidance," it concludes. The suspension of the council's work follows just days after its chair resigned and two members left the group as a result of changing companies. The council was established last June with a mandate of advising the government on the territory's economic recovery. As it announced the suspension of its work, it released the recommendations produced at its sole face-to-face meeting, in November. Good communication, slow responses The committee praises the "desire to collaborate" demonstrated by "junior and senior government officials," and notes "good" communication with cabinet. However, it also listed first among its challenges slow response times and the "need to prioritize and establish a long-term economic plan." In the short term, the report recommends the federal government prioritize tax credits for the resource sector, prevent banks from upping fees on struggling businesses, and improve support to Indigenous businesses. It says the territory should give a greater advantage to local businesses in procurement, provide support for small businesses, and invest in "real concrete solutions" to reduce the impact of COVID-19 on northerners' mental health. In the next 18 months, the report predicts that the aviation, tourism, food and beverage, and traditional economy sectors will continue to reel from the impact of the pandemic. Among the ideas floated by the council to reduce the damage were encouraging in-territory travel, using fly-in lodges for isolation, and offering a rebate on staycations. It criticizes inconsistencies in how COVID-19 regulations were being applied, and asks for lower fees and alcohol prices to reduce overhead. A recurring theme is the "overwhelming paperwork burden to access funding from [territorial] programs. "We would like to see the concerns with red tape addressed," it reads. In the longer term, the council's report largely rehashes existing territorial priorities, like making it easier for Indigenous governments to access funding, and spending on large infrastructure projects aimed at attracting mineral companies. It says remediation work at existing mines should be targeted to N.W.T. companies, and asks the government to invest in green technologies like wind and solar projects, electric vehicle charging stations, and greenhouses. It emphasizes the importance of the renewal of Aurora College, and suggests the government consider a dedicated "school of mines" on the model of Ontario's Haileybury School of Mines. While the report's "next steps" section mentions quarterly meetings, it's not clear from the release if those will go ahead.
