It ends with a shot of the company’s long-time spokesperson in Quebec, Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge, who exits a premium Genesis sedan with a smile. Read the rest of this entry »

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.

And the Court said that not all public sector workers should be deemed to be performing essential services. Read the rest of this entry »

Community Alert Toronto Police Service
LET US ALL BE OBSERVANT TO ENHANCE NEIGHBOURHOOD SAFETY

Greetings Subscribers,
42 Division has been experiencing a spike in Residential Break and Enters over the past several weeks and we are asking for your assistance by being observant and on the look-out for anything that looks out of the ordinary or suspicious in your neighbourhood.

The suspects have been targeting homes where the front of the residence is either concealed or obstructed by overgrown bushes, hedges, trees or glass enclosed vestibules.

In several of these break-ins, investigation has revealed that the suspects had been acting as door-to-door solicitors or canvassing in an attempt to avoid suspicion or detection.

One of the most effective tools the police have for fighting and preventing crime is the people of our community. You know who lives and works in your area, plus who doesn’t appear to belong or is acting suspicious.

What makes a person a suspicious person?

• knocking on your door and asking for a random name or address
• walking along the street and checking out properties
• looking into cars and walking onto personal property of others
• door-to-door solicitors who don’t have proper identification/literature or knowledge of the product(s) or service(s) that they are supposedly soliciting.(e.g. lawn care and not being able to provide a price list or quote of services offered)
• person(s) found on private property, in areas that are not normally accessible to members of the public. (e.g. in a backyard behind a gate/fence or secured garages)

What to do if you see a suspicious person?

• observe the person’s movements and direction of travel
• obtain the best detailed description of the suspicious person(s)
• do not count on others to call the police
• report suspicious people or vehicles on your street or neighbourhood to police at 416-808-2222
• if you witness, or are the victim of, a Break-and-Enter in progress, call 9-1-1 immediately

How to increase your personal and home security

• if a stranger comes to your door, do not let him or her in and always ask for identification
• have monitored alarm and video surveillance systems installed
• keep list of serial numbers for home electronics
• don’t keep large amounts of jewellery or money at home, use a secured safe
• make sure your front door is clearly visible to pedestrian traffic. If shielded by overgrown shrubbery, cut, trim or remove any overgrown shrubbery or trees
• lighting can be a great security measure. Consider installing lights controlled by timer or motion detectors.
• make certain that ladders, ropes or any other tool that would make it easier for someone to gain entry into your home are locked securely away
• remove any garbage or recycling containers from the bottom of driveways

If you see someone doing something you know is illegal or locate an unauthorized person in a secure area, call police right away. The sooner you call us, the sooner we can get to you, and the better our chances of locating the person you saw.

During the month of April, 2015, there have been five residential entries where a white van was seen in the northwest area of Scarborough. If you see a white cube van in your neighbourhood that does not appear to have any legitimate business in your neighbourhood, please try to obtain a plate number and a direction of travel and call to report it.

In one of the these break-ins, the homeowner observed a man entering the front door. The man then turned and fled on foot.

The witness described the man as white, late teens or early 20s, 5’7″-5’9″, thin build and having short buzzed brown hair.

REMINDER
42 Division Open House and Community Rummage Sale is tomorrow Saturday, May 9th, 2015 from 11am to 4pm.

Local residents are invited to come to 42 Division and meet the officers at the station. There
will be a police dog, horse and several police vehicles on display for the people to pose for
photographs alongside. There will be station tours, free hot dogs (while supplies last), an
Electronic Child Fingerprinting booth and our Community Police Liaison Committee (CPLC)
and Chinese Police Community Liaison Committee (CCLC) community rummage sale.

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 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

Measure to ensure efficient and predictable movement of grain through winter

OTTAWA, Nov. 29, 2014 /CNW/ – Transport Minister Lisa Raitt and Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz today announced that minimum grain volume requirements will be extended until March 28, 2015. This measure, initially introduced inMarch 2014, will help to maintain Canada’s reputation as a reliable supplier to world markets.

The government has put in place volume requirements that are designed to move the remainder of last year’s crop along with this year’s crop and ensure that the grain supply chain will return to normal operations. Ministers expect railways to provide reliable and predictable service to all shippers, all destinations, and throughout all corridors, as is their obligation as common carriers.
