Fort St John Chamber of Commerce puts forward Road Infrastructure Policy at

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Chamber of Commerce, along with other Chambers from across the province, were recently in attendance at the 2019 B.C. Chamber of Commerce Annual General Meeting.During the AGM, the Chamber took part in a policy session where they presented a policy to the Caucus on behalf of Fort St. John and the North Peace.Chamber Executive Director, Cheryl Montgomery, says the Chamber presented a policy that they wrote a resolution on a few months ago regarding transportation in the Region, adding that it does identify the Taylor Bridge as one of the concerns. “We presented a resolution that was written a few months ago regarding transportation and infrastructure in the whole Region. It does identify the Taylor Bridge and the South Taylor Hill as requiring a lot of improvement. But it does cover a general need for infrastructure in the whole Region.”While the issue of the Bridge and Hill are not new, Montgomery says it’s important to keep reminding the Province on the importance of investing in new infrastructure within the Peace as it plays a huge effect on the economy and tourism.Montgomery also says restructuring to the Bridge and Hill is needed immediately as the impact to the area would be catastrophic if either of those were to fail.“Where the real impact will come is if that Bridge ever fails, or if the Hill ever fails. When one of those things fail, we are going to find ourselves in a pretty economically catastrophic position.”The Policy was written and sent to the B.C. Chamber Body, where it was presented at the AGM, and then the Canadian Chamber and B.C. Chamber will eventually lobby it to be passed.This Thursday, May 30, the Chamber will be hosting a Speaker Series Luncheon with Scott Maxwell of the Ministry of Transportation, as a guest speaker, to discuss transportation needs of the Peace Region. Tickets can be purchased from the Chamber’s website.last_img read more

Moroccan political party calls for legalization of cannabis

first_imgTaroudant- In its issue of Monday, December 2, the Moroccan daily Akhbar Al Yaoum reported that the party of Modernity and Authenticity (PAM) announced its intention to launch a parliamentary debate on the legalization of the cultivation of cannabis and to exclude the name of this plant from the list of illegal drugs. The daily said that a study day will be held on Wednesday under the theme “The role of positive uses of cannabis to create an alternative economy.”The event, which will involve national and international experts, has been established through the action of a lobby association by the name of:  “Moroccan Alliance for therapeutic and industrial uses of cannabis.” “If we legalize the cultivation of cannabis, trade will become more transparent and organized,” said Khadija Rouissi,” MP from the PAM.It is worth mentioning that calling for the legalizing the cultivation of this plant is not something new to the Moroccan parliament. Last year, as voices emerged demanding the need to legalize cannabis cultivation in regions of the north, Nouredine Mediane, member of the Istiqlal Party, from El Hoceima, fiercely defended the legalization of cannabis cultivation in Morocco, in the presence of former Interior Minister Mohand Laenser.In 2009, a number of leaders of the Party of Authenticity and Modernity (PAM) urged the government to legalize the cultivation of cannabis.The latest report of the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime (UNODC) revealed that Morocco and Afghanistan are the world’s largest producers of hashish.© Morocco World News.

Beside The Points For Thursday Dec 28 2017

Things That Caught My EyeOne game moreThe 0-15 Cleveland Browns play the 12-3 Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday, and a loss will make them the second 0-16 team in NFL history. Browns Coach Hue Jackson has promised to make good on a vow he made to swim in Lake Erie if the Browns went 1-15 yet again. Overall, Cleveland is 1-30 under Jackson. Elo suggests that the Steelers have a 95 percent chance of winning on Sunday, and their bye week position in the playoffs is already locked up. [ESPN, FiveThirtyEight]Okay, so this one settles it.Surprise: Clemson and Alabama will play in the College Football Playoff again, their third such meeting in three years. That pair of games was a dead heat: each took a national championship, and the aggregate scoring was 76-75, Alabama. Stakes are high, but these aren’t the same exact teams we’ve seen in the playoff before: Alabama’s once ironclad defense has been deemphasized, but it has a stronger offense to compensate. [FiveThirtyEight]The case for Gurley as MVP comes down to how many voters played Fantasy FootballTodd Gurley, the Rams star running back, has been making a highly persuasive case for why he should be the NFL MVP over other contenders, like water pitchman Tom Brady. One component of the pro-Gurley argument is his incredible December performance, in which he has scored eight touchdowns in three games. This comes as no surprise to anyone playing Fantasy Football, where Gurley’s 107.1 fantasy points gave him the best postseason ever. [ESPN]Georgia D vs. Oklahoma OOklahoma has the best offense in the college football playoff, and on New Year’s Day they’ll play Georgia’s remarkable defense in the Rose Bowl. The winner goes on to face one of the two most recent national champions. Oklahoma’s quarterback, Baker Mayfield, has a completion rate of 53 percent when under pressure compared to 71 percent overall.

In the AFC, the contenders are the Ravens (94 percent chance of making the playoffs), Titans (58 percent), Chargers (31 percent) and Bills (17 percent), all playing squads with nothing on the line. In the NFC, it’s the Falcons (70 percent) and Seahawks (30 percent) fighting for the last spot. At least Atlanta is playing Carolina, a playoff-bound team still fighting for seeding. Atlanta has a 61 percent chance of winning that game.

Mens basketball Ohio States Big Ten championship hopes fading in final stretch

Ohio State redshirt junior forward Keita Bates-Diop shot 5-of-17 from the field in the Buckeyes’ 74-62 loss to Michigan on Feb. 18 in Ann Arbor. Credit: Jacob Myers | Managing Editor for ContentANN ARBOR, Mich. — The path to a Big Ten championship always seems to go through Michigan for Ohio State. The 2011-12 and 2012-13 teams suffered losses in Ann Arbor, Michigan, that ultimately dashed any outright regular-season conference title hopes.The same likely happened Sunday at the Crisler Center.After vanquishing the Wolverines in a 20-point comeback at home on Dec. 4, the eighth-ranked Buckeyes didn’t have the same formula for a victory against their rival the second time around, losing 74-62 to No. 20 Michigan, therefore falling a game behind first-place Michigan State in the Big Ten standings.In October, it isn’t likely many people predicted back-to-back road games against Penn State and Michigan in February to be the most challenging stretch of conference play for the Buckeyes. It was equally difficult at the time to foresee the position in which the team was in coming into this stretch — leading the Big Ten with four games to play.However small those odds were, that was Ohio State’s reality. But it has proved a burden for one of college basketball’s biggest surprise teams of the season.“If you’re a college player and you go into a couple games on the road against good teams, and you expect it to be easy, or you expect not to deal with some adversity — we haven’t had a whole lot of that through the Big Ten season, but everybody goes through that,” Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann said. “This is what we’ve signed up for. That’s what they signed up for when they signed up to play in the Big Ten. This is what we signed up for to coach in.”Back-to-back, double-digit losses in the home stretch of the season has put Ohio State in a position where winning its final games against Rutgers and at Indiana would not be enough to win the outright conference crown without a pair of losses from the Spartans and a loss by Purdue.Holtmann continued to stay quiet about the team’s prospects of winning the conference following his team’s latest defeat. But it’s clear there have to be adjustments moving forward when opponents get their second or third look at an Ohio State team that doesn’t overwhelm any team with athleticism, size or shooting.“If this beats us down, shame on us,” Holtmann added. “We’ve had a heck of a start and we got to figure out a way to make steps toward playing better.”Michigan is a sound defensive team with enough offense to possibly win the conference tournament in two weeks in New York, as well as make it past the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament. And Penn State has multiple NBA-caliber players, including potential Big Ten Player of the Year Tony Carr, and a legitimate shot to sneak into the field of 68 in March.Those losses are explainable, but they hurt nonetheless.“Like I said last [game] when we played Penn State, we’re either going to learn from it or it’s going to keep happening, and tonight it did,” senior forward Jae’Sean Tate said. “They came out more physical. They made the right plays and they got the win. It’s the same thing. We got to learn from this one.”Ohio State last swept Michigan in the regular season in the 2010-11 season, which featured arguably the best team the program has ever had and the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament. This season, everything had been going right for the Buckeyes. To think they were possibly about to achieve something that hadn’t been done since that team would’ve added to the lunacy of trying to explain this team’s successes.But there is a feeling that reality is now setting in for Ohio State.Teams are beginning to pressure junior C.J. Jackson and redshirt senior Andrew Dakich at point guard, a known weakness for the Buckeyes. With the exception of Tate, Holtmann said the team is struggling to play through physicality in the half-court offense, which starts with Big Ten Player of the Year contender Keita Bates-Diop, who has shot 9-of-28 from the field the past two games.It’s not the end of the road for Ohio State. It remains one of the best teams in the conference and deserving of a strong seed in the NCAA Tournament, but this stretch has been realized as a potential killer to a regular-season title.“We got to continue to have the same mindset,” Tate said. “Hope it works out. If it don’t, it doesn’t. At the end of the day, we’re just trying to look at the game in front of us.” read more
