“Brexit would be devastating for Donegal” says pharmacist Tom Murray

first_imgDonegal Pharmacist Tom Murray has called on all the county’s TDs and Councillors – from all parties and none – to oppose the re-imposition of border restrictions in the wake of the Brexit vote and to start standing up for the right of the North to remain within the EU.Mr Murray heads the Donegal branch of Border Communities Against Brexit. This is a group of people representing the business, community and farming sectors, and individuals, who have come together out of concern that the North’s remain vote will not be respected.Tom Murray said; “Many people in Donegal are deeply concerned about the devastating impact that Brexit will have in the border region and we now want to make sure our voices are heard. I believe that pressure must force the British Government into respect the North’s remain vote. “In June, the people of the North of Ireland voted to remain within the European Union. It makes absolutely no sense to have one part of Ireland operating within the EU and another outside it.“However, the British Government insists that it will impose Brexit against the democratic wishes of the majority of people living there.“Brexit will have a devastating impact on border communities here in Donegal.“Donegal is bordered by the Counties of Derry, Tyrone and Fermanagh all of which are now be dragged out of the EU. That is why communities, farmers and business people in Donegal are demanding that the British and Irish Governments respect the North’s remain vote. The North can and should remain in the EU. “The prospect of County Donegal being virtually encircled by a new EU frontier, is not something we can accept. It would create real hardship for people in Donegal who cross the border on a daily basis and we could very well be facing customs checkpoints, traffic delays and the closure of local border roads.Mr Murray continued; “The uncertainty caused by the Brexit referendum result is already damaging trade and investment and causing currency fluctuations which are impacting on cross-Border business.“But all of that will be overshadowed if we see the imposition of tariffs and the restriction of the free movement of goods, services and people across the border.“Brexit will be detrimental to the economic future of Donegal and will impact on trade and tourism.“The end of EU economic support for peace-building and border communities will hit many vital community projects. “Over the past decade the EU has spent over £1 billion in the North and border areas on projects for furthering the peace process. These funds may well be lost as a result of Brexit.“New restrictions on cross-border agricultural trade would be a devastating development for farmers in border counties like Donegal. Farming communities, North and South, have always worked together. This should continue.“People’s access to the nearest medical care or ambulance service may be disrupted and, as a result, lives of border residents will be put at risk by Brexit.“I am calling an all ejected representatives in Donegal – from all parties and none – to oppose the return of a hard border, to stand up for the right of the people in the North to remain within the EU, for the votes of people there to be respected, and for the Government to prioritise the interests of border counties like Donegal in all and any deliberations regarding Brexit.” “Brexit would be devastating for Donegal” says pharmacist Tom Murray was last modified: September 28th, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

RCMP seeks names of potential victims of coerced sterilization Lucki says

first_imgOTTAWA — The commissioner of the RCMP says her force is trying to get names of potential victims of coerced sterilization procedures.Brenda Lucki tells the House of Commons health committee that the RCMP is willing to meet with victims, adding it would be helpful if lawyers could convince complainants to come forward.MPs asked Lucki to testify today as part of a study about ongoing concerns from women, who are predominantly Indigenous, who allege they were coerced or forced into tubal ligation procedures during childbirth.A proposed class-action lawsuit is also underway in Saskatchewan naming the Saskatoon Health Authority, the Saskatchewan government, the federal government, and a handful of medical professionals as defendants.In 2017, an external review of complaints about coerced tubal ligations in the Saskatoon Health Region prompted a formal public apology.Dr. Judith Bartlett, who co-authored the external review, tells the committee that Indigenous women interviewed for the report often felt invisible, profiled and powerless.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Trudeau leans on Trump to help Canadians detained in China at G20

first_imgOTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau leaves for a G20 summit Wednesday, expecting to lean on the power and influence of U.S. President Donald Trump to raise the issue of two detained Canadians during a meeting with China’s president.Trump pledged his support during his own meeting with Trudeau last Thursday in the Oval Office, where he vowed to do anything he could to help Canada.The G20 summit in Osaka, Japan, comes as Canada continues to push for the release of Canadians in China, Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor.The Prime Minister’s Office has said little on the possibility of Trudeau getting his own meeting with the Chinese president.David Mulroney, a former Canadian ambassador to China, says it should not come as a surprise China is not interested in a meeting, adding Trump will be Canada’s best shot and the prime minister could use the G20 to talk to other leaders about the issue as well.Christopher Sands, the director of the Center for Canadian Studies at Johns Hopkins University, agrees that Canada doesn’t play offence very much but he suggests that Canada try to enlist other G20 leaders to help.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Rep Hoitenga working on school snow day issue

first_img Legislator: Schools shouldn’t have to choose between safety and funding State Rep. Michele Hoitenga, of Manton, is working on a policy fix for the current snow day issue affecting schools across Michigan.Current law requires schools to hold 180 school days and 1,098 classroom hours each year to receive state funding. Hoitenga’s proposal would allow schools to choose between the two, rather than mandating they meet both requirements.“This gives school districts more autonomy in dealing with harsh winters like we’ve faced this year,” Hoitenga said. “Schools should never be put in a situation where they must sacrifice the safety of their students to ensure funding from the state.”The representative spoke with superintendents throughout the district to weigh every option; this plan being one of them.Hoitenga said she would like to see a change like this be retroactive to ensure schools maintain current funding for the 2018-19 school year.Questions about this issue may be addressed to Hoitenga’s Capitol office at (517) 373-1747 or MicheleHoitenga@House.MI.gov. 13Feb Rep.

Social media and companion devices are increasingl

first_imgSocial media and companion devices are increasingly going hand in hand with TV viewing, according to new research from Ericsson that also found that operator’s should not be too concerned about so-called cord-cutting.Ericsson’s TV & Video Consumer Trend Report 2012, featuring data from seven global markets, found that 62% of consumers use social media whilst watching TV, an increase of 18 percentage points since 2011.  Of that total, 42% said they used social media to discuss TV programmes at least weekly.In keeping with these figures, 67% of the respondents from China, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, the UK and the US, said they used tablets, smartphones or laptops whilst watching TV.In what looks like good news for TV operators, and dispelling some media reports, the proportion of consumers increasing their spend on TV services is higher than those reducing or cancelling their services. Taking the total number of respondents from the seven countries, Ericsson found that while 7% had cancelled their pay TV service and 10% had reduced it, 22% increased the amount they spend since last year. Niklas Rönnblom, Ericsson ConsumerLab senior advisor stressed that there were strong geographical differences, with the proportion of people reducing payments being impacted by local economic issues. In the UK, for example, 15% of respondents had either cancelled or reduced their pay TV package compared with 14% who had increased spending.The survey also found that TV quality was the most important factor for consumers with regards to their TV experience, while on-demand and timeshift were the services consumers were most prepared to pay for. Rönnblom said consumers were becoming increasingly accustomed to on-demand services, which was increasing their motivation to pay for them. “Once you get used to it, you get hooked,” he said. “If you haven’t experienced it, it’s hard to like it. More people have experienced it and the experience is getting much better.”last_img read more
