BLUE RIVER, B.C. – A wildlife tour company in Blue River, B.C., is facing charges for allegedly putting food out to attract bears.Chris Doyle, deputy chief of the B.C. Conservation Officer Service, said in a conference call Thursday that the service began its investigation last August after receiving a complaint.Doyle said charges were sworn in May against Blue River Safari, also known as River Safari, which offers jet boat and jeep tours for bear and wildlife viewing.He said the charges against the company include feeding dangerous wildlife and placing attractants for dangerous wildlife under the B.C. Wildlife Act.The allegations have not been proven in court and the company could not immediately be reached for comment.Doyle said a representative for Blue River Safari is expected to appear in a Clearwater court on Sept. 25.Blue River is near Wells Grey Provincial Park, about 80 kilometres from the Alberta boundary.Doyle said it’s much more common for people to unintentionally leave out attractants for bears than to feed them on purpose, but it can have the same effect of putting both human safety and the lives of bears in danger.

Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock has conceded that signing Nantes striker Emiliano Sala now seems unlikely, but has refused to give up hope.Sala has been impressive for Nantes this season, scoring 12 goals and providing 2 assists in 16 matches for the French Ligue 1 club.Cardiff boss Warnock was confident of capturing his signature in January but was left disappointed after Nantes hiked up his transfer fee.“We’re looking as best we can at where we can get players in really but at the moment, it looks very much like a loan market to us,” Warnock told Sky Sports.Report: Miguel Cardoso sacked again George Patchias – August 28, 2019 Miguel Cardoso has been sacked for the third time in 12 months.There is one thing that all football managers know, and that is, from…“But that might change. I think everything seems to change so dramatically at our club at times. I wouldn’t say it’s dead in the water, but it’s highly unlikely at the moment.“I’d like to think I’ve got one [deal to sign a player] close, but you just never know in the game.“It’s so difficult, the higher you go. The Championship was a little bit easier in January but in the Premier League, you’ve got to get the best in.”

The Business Secretary has said that nationalisation of the Tata steel works is not the solution to the crisis. Sajid Javid made the comment in a statement issued shortly before he stepped on a plane to return to the UK from Australia.Javid insisted that the government is looking at all viable options to keep steel making continuing in Port Talbot. He added: I dont think nationalisation is going to be the solution because I think everyone would want a long-term viable solution.And if you look around Europe and elsewhere I think nationalisation is rarely the answer, particularly if you take into account the big challenges the industry faces. Prime Minister David Cameron will chair a meeting of key ministers on 31 March to discuss the crisis with at least 15,000 permanent jobs under threat. According to analysis conducted by IPPR think tank, some 40,000 jobs could be on the line if no buyer is found.Cameron has resisted calls from the Labour party to recall Parliament despite Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn launching a petition calling on the prime minister to act to protect our steel industry. The petition has garnered over 37,000 signatures.Calls for a bail out intensifyCorbyn was the first senior Westminster politician to travel to Port Talbot, after cutting his holiday short. He warned that the government needs to step in. We need a steel industry in Britain. We need a manufacturing base to our economy in Britain, Corbyn told Sky News.If you leave it to market forces, we will end up with a Chinese-dominated steel industry in Europe, he added. There has to be intervention.Surely the function of government, the function of being Prime Minister or Business Secretary is where necessary to intervene to protect jobs and communities and this crucial industry. The Labour leader added that losing more than a century of steel making in towns and cities across Britain would be unacceptable.His call for intervention was echoed by fellow politicians, who pointed out the governments role in rescuing banks. This industry is as important to Wales, I would argue, as the banking sector is to the whole of the UK, Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood told BBC News. If the banks could be bailed out, then the steel industry should be bailed out too, she added.
Yanghee Lee. UNB file photoThe UN Special Rapporteur on the human rights situation in Myanmar Yanghee Lee has lamented the decades long cycle of violence perpetuated by the authorities against ethnic minorities in Myanmar, including Rohingya Muslims, reports UNB.In a statement following her visits to Thailand and Bangladesh last month, she also said talk of repatriating hundreds of thousands of Rohingyas anytime soon was premature.Lee said that what the Myanmar government claims to be the conduct of military or security operations was actually an established pattern of domination, aggression and violations against ethnic groups, according to a statement UNB received here from Seoul on Thursday.”Recent reports of attacks against civilians; against homes and places of worship; forcible displacement and relocation; the burning of villages; land grabbing; sexual violence; arbitrary arrests and detention; torture and enforced disappearances; are acts that have been alleged against the military and security forces for generations,” she said.”While reports from Rakhine State have rightly provoked international outrage; for many in Myanmar, they have elicited a tragic sense of déjà vu.”She said the atrocities committed against the Rohingyas in the aftermath of the 9 October 2016 and the 25 August 2017 attacks, have been repeatedly witnessed before, albeit not on the same scale of the recent attacks against the Rohingya.”I was told repeatedly by the other ethnic groups I spoke to — be they Kachin, Karen, Karenni, or Shan — that they have suffered the same horrific violations at the hands of the Tatmadaw over several decades and — in the case of some groups — continuing today,” Lee said.”In Thailand, representatives from different ethnic groups that I met expressed their concern that as the world’s attention is focused on the atrocities in Rakhine State, potential war crimes are being committed in Shan and Kachin State without so much as a murmur of disapproval from the international community.”Lee said that set against this background of violence in the ethnic areas of Myanmar, was a continuing erosion of democratic space.”The civilian government has failed to usher in a new era of openness and transparency and is instead persisting with repressive practices of the past.”Lee, who was informed by the Myanmar authorities last year she would no longer be allowed to visit the country on the grounds her reporting was unfair and biased, called on the democratic government to break with the repressive practices of the past, and to allow people who have fled their country to return home – to where they belong.But she added: “For returns to be ever realized in a way that is voluntary, safe, dignified and sustainable they must be treated as equals — citizens of Myanmar with all the rights that that status affords.”She said that while the government of Bangladesh had made it clear that no refugees would be forced back to Myanmar, the international community must pressure Myanmar to create conditions for their return before it is too late.”This must be done in a principled way that prioritizes the need for these people to be recognized as Rohingya and as citizens of Myanmar,” she said.Lee said that during her visit to a camp in Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh, she saw great anxiety and fear when speaking to refugees about the prospect of returning to Myanmar.”One mother said to me, ‘Our beautiful children were slaughtered. How can we go back?’ Refugees have been entirely excluded from conversations about their fate, and going forward they must be involved in a meaningful way.”Without equality, Myanmar will never be free from violence and the country’s tragic déjà vu will reverberate through the future as it has through the past. The cycle of violence must end, and Myanmar must be supported in implementing the profound and meaningful reforms that are so urgently needed.”Lee said she hoped to regain access to Myanmar. “I remain ready to work with the Government and other stakeholders to promote and protect the human rights of all people in Myanmar,” she said.

Kolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is all set to fly to Bengaluru on Wednesday to attend the much-anticipated swearing-in ceremony of H D Kumaraswamy as the Chief Minister of Karnataka. After B S Yeddyurappa chose to resign as the CM instead of facing the trust vote, Mamata Banerjee tweeted: “Democracy wins. Congratulations Karnataka. Congratulations Deve Gowda Ji, Kumaraswamy Ji, Congress and others. Victory of the ‘regional’ front.”She also called up former Prime Minister Deve Gowda and expressed her satisfaction. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsIt may be recalled that in an interview to a vernacular television channel almost a week ago, Banerjee had maintained that there might be a hung Assembly in Karnataka and H D Kumaraswamy might become the Chief Minister. Her prediction has come true. After the election result in Karnataka was out, Banerjee said it would have been different had the Congress inked ties with the JDS. In the 224-member Assembly, the BJP got 104 seats while Congress and JDS got 78 and 38 seats while others got 2.

In the process, she spoke to Chandrababu Naidu, KCR, Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav. KCR flew down to Kolkata to discuss the matter with her. Banerjee feels that to maintain the federal structure of India, the regional parties should grow stronger.Partha Chatterjee, Trinamool Congress secretary general, said: “It is difficult to say why the one who could not retain his post then, even took the oath. If all are united then BJP will be finished in 2019,” he remarked. Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav also took to Twitter soon after Yeddyurappa announced his decision to resign as the Karnataka chief minister.”Truth can never be defeated! Truth will always defeat a lie or liar! #KarnatakaFloorTest,” the younger son of party chief Lalu Prasad wrote on the microblogging website.All those who believe in democracy are happy, said Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu, whose Telugu Desam Party exited the NDA in March.”This is a big blow for them(BJP), and I think what they had been planning all along for 2019 has failed, they will now have to rethink and alter their strategies,” said BSP supremo Mayawati.
