Under fire Morneau to sell 21M worth of shares put assets in

OTTAWA — Finance Minister Bill Morneau, under siege from relentless opposition attacks over how he handled his personal fortune when he entered government in 2015, went on the offensive Thursday with a promise to sell off tens of millions of dollars worth of shares in the family business that bears his name.At least $21 million in Morneau Shepell shares held by Morneau and his family will be sold off, while the rest of his assets will be placed into a blind trust, the minister said as he sought to snuff out conflict of interest allegations threatening to undermine the federal Liberal government.All the while, the wealthy former businessman continued to insist he disclosed all his assets to the federal ethics watchdog when he came into office two years ago, and that he that he followed her recommendations very carefully to avoid any conflicts of interest.That, the embattled Morneau has now decided, wasn’t good enough.“I perhaps naively thought that in Canada following the rules and respecting the recommendations of the ethics commissioner … would be what Canadians would expect,” Morneau told a news conference. “In fact, what I have seen over the last week is that I need to do more.”Morneau said he currently owns about a million shares — $21 million worth at current stock prices — in the human resources and pension management firm he and his family helped to build. Public filings show that in March, Morneau’s father, William Morneau Sr., held just over 200,000 shares, worth about $4.2 million.Morneau didn’t, however, mention the dividends those shares generate: 6.5 cents a share, equating to roughly $65,000 a month.When asked why he changed his mind, Morneau admitted the issue has become a major distraction and was taking away from what he characterized as his important work as Liberal finance minister — work he wants to continue doing.“I’m going to go farther, above and beyond anything that might have been recommended because I want to make sure that this isn’t the discussion that we’re having tomorrow or the day after,” he said.“I am trying to make sure that we are successfully improving the lives of Canadians across the country, so if we’re getting distracted because some people are worried about my personal situation, it’s time to move on. And that’s what I’ve decided to do.”Morneau said until his shares are divested they will remain behind a conflict-of-interest screen, which has been overseen by the minister’s chief of staff, to ensure he abstains from any discussions or decisions that could benefit his personal interests.He said he could recall at least two instances where he was removed from meetings because of the screen.Thursday’s decision — aimed at silencing Morneau’s increasingly vocal critics — could also be considered a tacit acknowledgment that the rules themselves are in need of an update, something the ethics commissioner herself has suggested in the past.Commissioner Mary Dawson revealed this week that she told Morneau a blind trust wouldn’t be necessary, since his shares were indirectly held through private companies and were therefore not considered a “controlled asset” under the Conflict of Interest Act.However, Dawson urged the previous Conservative government in 2013 to amend the law to require blind trusts for personal assets owned by public office holders, regardless of whether they were directly or indirectly owned — a change that was never made.Morneau, who stepped down as Morneau Shepell’s executive chairman shortly after the election, said Thursday that when he first entered cabinet, he fully expected he would have to put his assets in a blind trust, as did the company he was leaving behind. However, Dawson told him it wouldn’t be necessary, he said.At that time, public filings showed Morneau owned 2,254,109 shares, most of them through an Alberta numbered company. On Thursday, he said it was only about a million shares, although he didn’t elaborate on what happened to the rest.All week long, the Conservatives and New Democrats have accused the government of being in a conflict of interest created by a finance minister regulating an industry that includes a company in which he owns significant shares.NDP MP Nathan Cullen has called on Dawson to investigate Morneau for spearheading pension reform legislation that could benefit Morneau Shepell and, through shares he still holds, the minister himself.In the days after Morneau personally introduced that bill, the value of Morneau Shepell shares rose 4.8 per cent, Cullen said during question period, Morneau’s first this week since the controversy exploded. The minister shrugged off Cullen, noting Dawson had already signed off on the arrangement.The opposition charges have all but drowned out the government’s efforts to address another, earlier controversy over its widely panned changes to small business taxes.“Of course, there’s been a distraction this week,” Morneau said earlier in the day during a news conference at a farm in the Ontario community of Erinsville, where he was trying to deliver good news: that the government would not proceed with a tax change that has angered farmers.He said Ottawa will reconsider the proposal related to the conversion of income into capital gains after hearing concerns from farmers and fishers. The proposal raised fears about how it could hinder the intergenerational transfer of family business, like farms.It had been one of the three key components of the government’s package of tax proposals.Morneau’s first to the House of Commons on Thursday after spending the week making announcements to scale back some of the so-called tax reforms, which have angered small business owners, doctors, farmers and even Liberal backbench MPs.Earlier this week, the government also ditched another proposed measure that would have had a negative impact on the transfer of family businesses from one generation to the next.Morneau also announced this week that he will scale back a proposal to crack down on passive investment income, which was one of the most contentious elements of his plan.Follow @AndyBlatchford on Twitter read more

Uruguay leader urges UN action to ease global burden of noncommunicable diseases

President of Uruguay Tabaré Vazquez addressed the United Nations General Assembly today, urging decisive action from the world community to find solutions to a raft of global challenges, including migration and the increasing prevalence of noncommunicable diseases. Prevention, said Mr. Vazquez, is better than cure, and what is needed is to “recognize other people as ourselves and protect all their rights.” He added that democracy is the only form of government that allows people to be full citizens and to protect the planet.Noting that he used to be a practicing medical doctor, Mr. Vazquez focused much of his address on the issue of public health, which he said was a central component of national sovereignty and “an unavoidable responsibility of States.”He added that the global burden of morbidity had shifted from infectious to chronic noncommunicable diseases, which were preventable. Some 60 per cent of morbidity globally is due to cardio-vascular disease, cancer and other noncommunicable diseases, “which have no borders.” Coordinated policies are needed to address poverty, promote healthy lifestyles, physical activity, sport and a healthy diet, as well as to control smoking, alcoholism, and drug abuse, said Mr. Vazquez.Praising the resumption of diplomatic relations between Cuba and the United States, he said a key element to success was ending the embargo. Uruguay would vote in the General Assembly to do so as it had for many years, he said, adding, “Let’s hope that this is the last time the United Nations will have to take up this issue.”He recalled that, in 2008, Uruguay had presented its candidacy for non-permanent membership on the Security Council for the period 2016-2017. The country, he said, was a founding Member of the United Nations, and believed that the only way for the Council to fulfil its mandate was on the basis of the UN Charter. He said that Uruguay was a peace-contributing country and would like to bring its experience to the Council. read more

TPain Channels Facebook for a New Tattoo

first_imgEarlier in the month, we were lucky enough to interview T-Pain at the Consumer Electronics Show (ces) in Las Vegas. He was at the show to promote the “I Am T-Pain” toy microphone that auto-tunes everything you say when you speak into it. On twitter this week, T-Pain announced that he had made his love of technology a little more permanent; with a brand new tattoo featuring Facebook’s iconic “Like” button. The tattoo says “You Don’t Have to [LIKE] Me,” and is on his arm. He noted on Twitter: “I get a tatt every time I come to Hawaii. I think this ones [sic] pretty sweet, unless facebook shuts down soon.” All things considered, that should be the least of his worries.AdChoices广告last_img

Facebook group for Greek orphans seeking answers

first_imgAside from greater access to DNA testing, social media has proven to be invaluable in connected displaced individuals like Ioannis Kalos with their families.This month marks three years since he started Greek Orphans Seeking Answers (GOSA), a group on Facebook to connect with others like himself who have been orphaned in Greece.At that stage he had yet to connect with his ancestors, with little to no knowledge about Ancestry DNA testing.It didn’t take long for his member list to start growing, with just over 100 members currently from around the world, including Australia.As Ioannis himself has gained more knowledge over the years, the group has continued to establish itself as a rich resource of information for those looking for their own answers, and unsure of where to start.“Unfortunately in Greece there is no one address or one email that you can write to, to find our families. It depends upon what orphanage or home that you were in. So for myself it was a long process, but now I’ve collated addresses and emails depending on whether you were from the Mitera Home in Athens, which was for unwed mothers, or whether you were from Patras Orphanage, or a Thessalonikian Orphanage, from St Stylianos Orphanage or from the other various homes,” he says.(L-R) A passport photo of Ioannis at four-and-a-half years old and Ioannis now, age 65. He was found on a doorstep in the 1950s in Athens, and used DNA to help him find his birth family. Photos: SuppliedREAD IOANNIS’ STORY: Baby without a name grows into a man on a quest to find familyThanks to a law passed in Greece in 1996, by writing to the home or orphanage one came from, adult adoptees are entitled to access their birth records, or at the very least their orphanage records.Having this information has proven invaluable for many, given that once adoptees start looking for answers, they are often pressed for time. Ioannis says that in his experience many are waiting until their adopted parents pass on to seek out answers, out of fear of hurting their feelings. While others only find out they are adopted in mid life.“One of my members said to me that he didn’t know he was adopted up until he was 50 years old; he found out through one of his sisters who emailed him rather than telling him face-to-face,” he says.“There’s also a girl I know, she’s actually born in the late 1980’s, and she lives in Melbourne. She was handed over from one parent to another parent, and she was sold for money. Unbelievable stories that I hear; oh my God, it’s tragic.”This empathy that Ioannis expresses is evidence that the group goes beyond practical means, also acting as a support group. With all posts private, members are given the space to openly talk over their feelings, their experiences, to vent their frustrations and anger.They also compare notes about DNA to better understand results, discuss challenges faced with the Greek language in their search, as well as fraud.“There are a lot of researchers out there who say ‘I can help you find your birth family. You must sign this form, take it to the Greek embassy and that gives us the power to search on your behalf’ – because you can do that. But then they say ‘we want a donation’. So that’s my gripe,” he explains, noting one researcher who, an adoptee herself, lives in Greece and has made a living out of charging orphans to find their families – a red line for Ioannis, and one he doesn’t allow anyone to cross.“Knowing our birth families, knowing who we are, where we came from, who our mum and dad is, is a fundamental human right; it’s not something you can pay for, or something that you can buy.”To avoid this, Ioannis says he has been streamlining the group, with members now required to answer a series of questions to prove their reasons for joining.While his number one aim is to piece his own puzzle together, while helping as many Greek orphans as possible in their own quest, he is also on a mission to highlight their collective, lifelong plight to the Greek government – who he believes is slow in recognising “a wrong that has been done to us orphans, because they were so quick in jettisoning us out of the country to unfit parents”.READ MORE: How DNA ancestry testing can change our ideas of who we areIoannis is adamant that it is not financial assistance they seek, but rather acknowledgement and support from a governmental level. He says the establishment of a Greek national database listing Greeks who have had their DNA tested, which can be accessed would be invaluable in finding and connecting with their blood relatives sooner.“A lot of us are ageing. I’m 66 coming, pushing 70 and we don’t know who our birth family is, and it’s sad. I’m very fortunate to have found two of my uncles who are still alive, but they’re of great age,” he says. But not everyone is as lucky as Ioannis.“I must say loud and clear, Greece has failed us. I would love the government to get on board and to do something with its orphans because so many of us are left not knowing a thing about their family. Greece, yes we know the economic crisis, but still, for goodness sake, we’re the forgotten ones; we were born there of Greek people – I’m as Greek as Greek can be.”To join Greek Orphans Seeking Answers (GOSA), visit https://www.facebook.com/groups/225165427849789/ Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

At this time it is unknown whether the K-pop star took his own life, but confirmation is expected. Jonghyun had just done 2 triumphant performances as a solo artist on Dec. 9 and 10 in Seoul Olympic Park at the SK Olympic Handball Stadium. It is now Dec. 19 in Korea, where his unconscious body was rushed to the hospital the night of Monday, Dec. 18. He had texted his sister, “I’ve had a hard time. Please let me go and say that I did a good job. This is my last word.”Based on his sister’s concern, police rushed to the star’s apartment in the Gangnam district and discovered him unconscious at 6:10 p.m. Reports reveal he died of cardiac arrest once he had been taken to the hospital and was under treatment. Carbon monoxide from a charcoal heater remains a possible cause of death.Further details are still being reported including widespread mourning and memories. 2017 has been a year in which suicide has confronted the music community several times, with the most obvious examples of Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington. Though the international music community mourns the loss of such a bright young talent, fans and friends  can certainly say “Good job, Jonghyun!” on the years of music and the many positive messages left behind.Logic, Juanes Team For ‘1-800’ Spanish RemixRead more Email last_img read more

Prince Harry doesnt like Fortnite Or social media Even though hes on

first_img Tags Share your voice Prince Harry, not playing Fortnite. Getty Images Prince Harry may not yet be a father, but he’s already practicing to be a spoilsport.The Duke of Sussex, who is sixth in line of succession to the British throne, spoke out against the popular video game Fortnite at an event at the YMCA in London, according to a report from the BBC. Like an agitated dad about to tell his kids to go to their room, he said Fortnite “shouldn’t be allowed.” TOPSHOT-POLAND-ESPORT-GAMING-IT-ENTERTAINMENTFortnite has become a gaming phenom with 250 million players counted so far. Epic Games “Where is the benefit of having it in your household?” he said of the game, which has 250 million players around the world. “It’s created to addict, an addiction to keep you in front of a computer for as long as possible. It’s so irresponsible.”Harry’s comments rippled across social media (which he said, by the way, is “more addictive than alcohol and drugs”) inspiring clap backs that called him patronizing and hypocritical. Neither Fortnite maker Epic Games nor a spokesperson for Harry responded to requests for comment. As unpopular as Harry’s comments may’ve been, he isn’t the only one who’s shared these concerns. Last year, The World Health Organization added “gaming disorder” to a list of modern diseases, and the news is filled with an endless trove of anecdotes of parents neglecting children, doctors expressing concern and even divorces, all affected by video games.Video game makers and advocates disagree, saying gaming is not unlike any other hobby, and that people’s concerns are unfounded.Harry’s comments came just after he and his wife, Meghan Markle, earned the world record for being the fastest to reach 1 million followers on Instagram. It took less than six hours. Comments Fortnite Politics Gaming Online 3last_img read more
