Uxbridge resident Eilish Neilly has had a love for Planet Earth from a young age, and she is now heading a cigarette butt cleanup team here in our town. This winter, Neilly found herself out of work, and when a volunteer opportunity with A Greener Future (an organization that works with local communities to promote environmental preservation) came up, she jumped at the chance to join the team. “I love doing work with nonprofits and charities,” says Neilly, “and I was excited to get the role as a communications assistant with A Greener Future.” Neilly studied environmental management at the University of Guelph and has always found volunteering for the environment to be a rewarding activity. When the Butt Blitz project came up, Neilly signed on as a coordinator and based her team out of her hometown of Uxbridge. A Greener Future started the Butt Blitz in 2015, and in its six years running, volunteers have picked up over a million cigarette butts. The collected butts are all sent to an organization called TerraCycle, where they can be properly recycled and used to create industrial items such as park benches and plastic pallets. This year, the organization is taking on its biggest goal yet - to pick up one million butts in the month of April alone. Currently, it has reached a little over a third of its goal, and it’s looking for a strong finish to the month-long cleanup project. Neilly has a team of about 11 volunteers, and so far they have already collected around 30,000 cigarette buts in Uxbridge alone. “Once you start looking for them, you really can’t ever unsee it,” says Neilly. “Although it sometimes feels like your impact is really small, I know that if a lot of people get on it we can make a difference.” The project is usually run as a single day blitz along the shore of Lake Ontario, but as a result of the COVID pandemic, the project was modified this year to a month-long community-based project. With the success of this project, Neilly suspects it might continue in a similar fashion next year. “There’s often a lot of shame that goes along with litter, but with cigarette butts it just seems to be perceived as more normal,” says Neilly. “I think that’s because people don't really know what’s in the butts. There is actually plastic inside the filter, people often think it's cotton or a natural fiber. With that plastic comes a lot of other issues over time when it’s left in our environment.” To learn more about A Greener Future and to stay up to date on its projects, visit agreenerfuture.ca and follow on social media.

CALGARY — The CEO of Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. says a rival bid for Kansas City Southern by Canadian National Railway Co. carries a bigger price tag but can't win U.S. regulatory approval because of its negative affects on competition. During the Calgary-based company's first-quarter financial results call Wednesday after markets closed, CP CEO Keith Creel listed off a long series of "truths" that suggest CP's offer made last month is better for shippers and investors than CN's competing bid made Tuesday. "So, were my eyes opened yesterday when I read the press release? The truth is yes, the headline number was undeniably eye-opening: 325 bucks (US per share)," Creel said. "But the reality is that only matters if its attainable. Unrealized value is still equal to zero. If you can't do the deal, if it's not doable, you never get there." In response to an analyst's question, Creel said on the call CP is not considering increasing its bid for KCS because it doesn't want to put its balance sheet at risk. On Tuesday, Montreal-based CN announced a cash-and-stock bid valued at US$33.7 billion for Kansas City, Mo.-based KCS, topping one made last month by Calgary-based CP Rail valued at US$25 billion. Earlier on Wednesday, CP said is it is appealing to the U.S. regulator that governs railway mergers to rule on CN's claim that its offer will be assessed in the same way as CP's bid. "Because of the far more serious public interest concerns posed by CN's proposed acquisition of KCS, CN's suggestion that its proposal should be subject to the same regulatory treatment as the CP-KCS transaction is incorrect," CP said in a news release ahead of its annual general meeting. "Whereas a Canadian Pacific transaction raises none of the issues that motivated the new merger rules in 2001, the CN proposal raises all of them, especially competitive and downstream consolidation concerns." CP charges that a CN-KCS merger would "destabilize" the rail network balance in North America that has prevented further consolidation of the six largest railroads for two decades, adding it would leave CP as a disadvantaged "odd-man-out" in a six-railroad North America. CP has asked the U.S. Surface Transportation Board to rule that its combination with KCS qualifies under a waiver the regulator granted to KCS in 2001 from more stringent merger rules adopted to protect competition. It says the STB should make it clear that CN's bid will not qualify for the same exemption. Also Wednesday, CN announced that it has notified the STB that it intends to apply for authority to combine with KCS under current merger rules and also seeking approval of its plan to employ a voting trust so that KCS shareholders can be paid out while awaiting final STB approval. “We believe the STB and our customers will recognize that CN presents the best solution for the continued growth, development and prosperity of the North American economy,” said CEO Jean-Jacques Ruest in a statement. “CN has made a superior proposal and is committed to satisfying the current STB merger rules. CN is confident that the STB will approve the voting trust, which will permit KCS shareholders to crystallize the value of its U.S. and Mexico franchise, and then permit the STB to undertake the careful review process it should take following the closing into the voting trust.” The company said it is confident it can address any reasonable remediation concerns and it supports an STB review under modern rules, as opposed to "rules from four decades ago that have been opposed by virtually every other party to have filed before the STB." KCS's rail assets in Mexico have long made it a desirable takeover target. A CN-KCS combination would be the third-largest Class 1 railroad in North America by revenue, while a CP-KCS merger would remain the smallest of the six remaining railroads. CN noted a combined CN-KCS would be the fifth-largest railway by network length in the United States, behind the four big American Class 1 railroads but ahead of CP. There was only brief mention of the proposed KCS merger at the CP annual meeting on Wednesday morning, where shareholders voted 99 per cent in favour of a share-split resolution to issue five new CP shares for each existing share. After markets closed, CP reported first-quarter net income of $602 million on revenue of $1.959 billion, compared with $409 million on $2.0 billion in the year-earlier period. Analysts had expected net income of $593 million on $1.995 billion in revenue, according to financial data firm Refinitiv. This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 21, 2021.

Burke says what she said about former dance partner ‘haunts me to this day’
CONCORD, N.H. — New Hampshire state police arrested another four men Wednesday in connection with a broad criminal investigation into physical and sexual abuse at a state-run youth detention centre, bringing the total to 11. Jonathan Brand, Victor Malavet, Trevor Middleton and Stanley Watson together have been charged with 14 counts of sexual assault involving five victims between 1997 and 2007, the attorney general's office said. Seven other former workers at the Youth Development Center in Manchester were arrested earlier this month and charged with either sexually assaulting or acting as accomplices to the assault of 12 teenagers from 1994 to 2005. The centre, now called the Sununu Youth Services Center, has been the target of a criminal investigation since 2019, as well as a lawsuit in which more than 200 men and women allege they were physically or sexually abused as children by 150 staffers from 1963 to 2018. According to their attorney, children were gang raped by counsellors, beaten while raped, forced to compete for food in “fight clubs” set up by counsellors and locked in solitary confinement for weeks or months. Malavet, 58, of Gilford, faces seven counts of rape; Watson, 52, of Allenstown, faces three counts of rape; Middleton, 52, of Belmont, faces one count of rape and one count of sexual assault; and Brand, 56, of Concord, faces two counts of sexual assault. They are due in court Thursday, and it is unknown whether they are represented by attorneys. Gov. Chris Sununu said the latest arrests make clear his administration's commitment to holding perpetrators accountable. The facility is named for his father, former Gov. John H. Sununu. “This is not over and we will continue to investigate these horrific allegations,” he said. ___ This story has been corrected to reflect that the total charges brought Wednesday is 14, not 15.
