iTaxiworkers Commend Court Decision Upholding Taxi Reforms

TORONTO, Jan. 30, 2015 /CNW/ – The iTaxiWorkers Association applauds today’s Ontario Superior Court decision upholding taxi industry reforms passed by Toronto city council.

Today’s decision from Superior Court Justice David G. Stinson means that attempts by the Toronto Taxi Alliance to quash the reforms passed in February 2014 have been defeated. The reforms will eliminate the two-tier system within the industry, allowing drivers with Ambassador plates to sell their plates and hire a second driver.

The reforms, including a new licence called the Toronto Taxicab Licence (TTL), will usher in a new era in the city’s taxi industry. The TTL makes a strong case that the industry is moving towards an owner-operated model.

“While we understand the concerns raised by Justice Stinson regarding the mandatory deadline to convert all licences to the Toronto Taxicab Licence by 2024, today’s decision is a welcome victory for drivers who are at the frontline of the industry,” said Sajid Mughal, iTaxiWorkers Association President.

The iTaxiWorkers Association is willing to work with Toronto city council to further discuss the 2024 deadline, Mughal said.

It further ruled that while governments have the authority to limit the right to strike for workers who perform essential services, they should not limit this right more than necessary. And the Court said that not all public sector workers should be deemed to be performing essential services. Read the rest of this entry »

Nurses back bill to reinstate the long-form census

TORONTO, Jan. 31, 2015 /CNW/ – Ottawa must bring back the long-form census to ensure that healthy public policy can be created that addresses the needs of all Canadians, says the organization representing Ontario’s registered nurses, nurse practitioners and nursing students.

As legislators prepare for next Wednesday’s vote on Bill-C626, the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) is throwing its support behind MP Ted Hsu’s private member’s bill, which would reinstate the long-form census. Read the rest of this entry »

Bill C-43, the Economic Action Plan Act, No. 2, recently received Royal Assent. Some of the amendments adopted by Parliament grant new tools and responsibilities to the CRTC.

In Beauty, book reviews, Business, cars, Contact Information, Creative Writing, Culture, Disability, Education, Entertainment, Environment, Events, Health, Home Decor, Living, Media Writing, Movie Reviews, Music, Opinion, Pets, Radio Podcasts, Religion, Restaurant Reviews, Sports, Technology, travel, Uncategorized, Video Work, Writing (all kinds) on May 5, 2015 at 3:00 AM
In particular, the CRTC can now issue monetary penalties to any company or person that violates the Telecommunications Act as well as related CRTC decisions or regulations. Monetary penalties are an addition to our toolkit. They will promote compliance with telecommunications laws and regulations. This will ensure Canadians have access to a world-class communication system—one in which there is sustainable competition and a choice of innovative content and services.

Monetary penalties also give the CRTC greater flexibility to tailor its enforcement approach to each situation and to the facts before it. In some cases, a monetary penalty might be the right approach. We will be providing further guidance in the coming weeks on how and when the CRTC intends to use this new power.

Changes to the Telecommunications Act and Broadcasting Act, under Bill C-43, have also prohibited providers from charging customers a fee to receive paper bills for wireless, Internet, telephone and television services. This includes undertakings that the CRTC has exempted from holding a broadcasting licence.

We are, however, conscious that some service providers may need to update their billing systems to automatically remove these charges. In the meantime, the Commission will consider operators to be in compliance if they manually make adjustments to customer bills in the earliest available billing cycle, through rebates or otherwise, thus reversing charges for paper bills. We encourage providers to work proactively with their customers to ensure the most efficient transition to implement this new legislative requirement.

December 5, 2014 – Ottawa-Gatineau – Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC)

In Beauty, book reviews, Business, cars, Contact Information, Creative Writing, Culture, Disability, Education, Entertainment, Environment, Events, Health, Home Decor, Living, Media Writing, Movie Reviews, Music, Opinion, Radio Podcasts, Religion, Restaurant Reviews, Sports, Technology, travel, Uncategorized, Video Work, Writing (all kinds) on May 2, 2015 at 3:00 AM
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) today approved, with conditions, an interim service that will make it easier to access emergency responders in the Yukon. This service was proposed by the Yukon Government as a temporary solution while it works to implement 9-1-1 service throughout the territory.

Citizens and visitors will be able to dial 9-1-1 in an emergency situation anywhere in the territory without having to remember the seven-digit telephone numbers that some emergency responders currently use. By dialing 9-1-1, callers will be directed by an automated service to select either police, fire or emergency medical services from an interactive menu.

The CRTC has approved this proposal on the condition that all calls using the service are ultimately answered, i.e. calls to local police, fire and emergency medical services that are not answered must be automatically transferred to the local RCMP detachment or the 9-1-1 call centre in Whitehorse.

The Yukon Government has committed to implement Basic 9-1-1 service throughout the territory within the next 12 to 20 months. Basic 9-1-1 service will ensure that all 9-1-1 calls are answered by a trained live 9-1-1 operator who can dispatch the appropriate emergency responders.

In addition, the Yukon Government must conduct a comprehensive public awareness campaign to explain how the service functions, as well as its availability, characteristics and limitations.


Quick Facts

- CRTC has approved, with conditions, an interim service that will make it easier to access emergency responders in the Yukon.
- Callers within all communities of the Yukon will be able to dial 9-1-1 in an emergency situation rather than one of the seven-digit number currently used by some emergency response agencies in communities without 9-1-1.
- The Yukon Government has committed to providing Basic 9-1-1 service throughout the territory within the next 12 to 20 months. Basic 9-1-1 service is currently available only in the Whitehorse area.


Quote

“This interim solution is a step towards keeping citizens and visitors safer in the Yukon, as it will make it possible for them to dial 9-1-1 in an emergency situation. However, it is now up to the Yukon Government to fulfill its commitment and implement Basic 9-1-1 service throughout the territory as soon as possible.”

Peter Menzies, Vice-Chairman of Telecommunications
