Update from Regina jail Inmates refusing to eat privatized food until demands

first_imgKenneth Jackson APTN National NewsJust like they said they would a group of inmates inside a Regina jail are refusing to eat the “gross” meals served to them sending back oatmeal at breakfast and bologna sandwiches at lunch Thursday.It’s believed the hunger protest is secluded mainly to one section of the Regina Correctional Centre’s remand wing where about 70 inmates are demanding better quality food they say is often old and stinky according to inmate Kenneth Morrison, 27, originally from the Muscowpetung First Nation in Saskatchewan.Morrison said all but one person, a diabetic, is taking part from his unit, 1C, and many are Aboriginal.“We haven’t eaten. We have sent the breakfast trays back and we have sent the lunch trays back,” said Morrison who is awaiting trial for assault, possession of stolen property and breaches in March. “Everybody has been really responsible about it and respectful. We’re just trying to get the point across, right?”Saskatchewan has been plagued with complaints from inmates across several of their institutions after privatizing food services in November to Compass Group, a company based in Mississauga, Ont., in an effort to save money – an estimated $12 million over the next five years.But almost immediately inmates threw their arms up or in the case of the RCC, their trays as this is the third food protest since just before Christmas.The institution is split into different sections, including convicted inmates serving sentences, who are kept from those awaiting trial on charges.Sentence inmates held a so-called hunger strike for a few days in December before the province gave them assurances food quality was being addressed. Another one erupted just after New Year’s, but was short lived.Then on Tuesday, Morrison called APTN National News saying he was organizing a protest on the remand side.Morrison told APTN Thursday afternoon he met with the jail’s warden Darin Reeves Tuesday to provide his demands and afterward was given a letter from Reeves outlining how inmate concerns were being addressed. Reading from a letter he told APTN jail staff had met with a representative from Compass Wednesday who promised to address food quality.That included better tasting milk and fixing kitchen equipment like the damaged coffee maker. The letter mentions the “turkey product” served to inmates would be improved immediately.Consistency is something they are looking to address too, right down to whether there’s mustard on bologna sandwiches.“They usually send mustard but it’s not consistent,” said Morrison.But he’s seen uncooked or stinky meat make its way to the inmates. Adding to the problem is that the food is served on dirty trays from a messy cart, he said.Compass has apparently promised to improve its cleanliness but maybe not by Thursday morning.“The cart they sent today stinks like garbage still. The stains are still on it. I don’t know if they washed it with a dirty rag, but it smelled very, very bad,” he said. The hunger protest has now gone political, at least on the inside, and appears to be the one thing in the way of ending the food protest.Morrison said they are demanding equal representation among inmates. Sentence inmates have representatives to express concerns to Reeves on behalf of all of them, but that doesn’t include remand guys said Morrison.“(It’s) to let them know we are in need of representation in remand, just to ensure things like this don’t happen anymore (by) ensuring communication,” he said. So if they get their political representatives, better food, new coffee maker and prove their point Morrison doesn’t see the protest lasting too much longer.“As long as the (other inmates) are okay with that then I don’t see it proceeding,” he [email protected] @afixedaddressKenneth Jackson can be reached at 613-325-6073, collect calls accepted.last_img read more

Trudeau Macron mount transatlantic press on Trumps pending steel tariffs

first_imgWASHINGTON – Canada and its European allies mounted a transatlantic counter offensive Wednesday to stop the Trump administration from imposing potentially punishing and disruptive tariffs on steel and aluminum later this week.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron made their cases separately to dissuade President Donald Trump from using a national-security clause in U.S. trade law to impose potentially crippling tariffs on Canada, Mexico and Europe, which were provisionally exempted from the duties when they were first imposed in March.Those exemptions are due to expire Friday, and if they are not renewed, Trudeau said consumers in both Canada and the U.S. would be hurt. Macron echoed those concerns, and issued a broader warning against starting a trade war.Trump’s two key economic cabinet members — trade czar Robert Lighthizer and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross — were in Paris on Wednesday to face nervous European Union counterparts and hear their concerns first hand.Ross stared down the concerns by questioning the efficiency of the World Trade Organization and other large institutions: “We would operate within frameworks if we were convinced that people would move quickly.”The steel standoff highlighted the rift over the rules-based international trade order that is likely to be on full display when Trudeau hosts the G7 leaders next week: a skeptical Trump on one side facing down the rest of the G7, including Trudeau.Macron and Trudeau are to meet in Ottawa next week ahead of the G7 summit in Quebec to talk strategy.Trudeau described Wednesday how he pushed U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence during a phone call a day earlier to exempt Canadian steel and aluminum imports to the U.S.The prime minister said the government is dealing with the U.S. on multiple economic fronts, including trying to forge a deal on a renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement.Canada, the U.S. and Mexico are pushing hard to get a deal on a renegotiated NAFTA before Congressional elections in the fall and what’s expected to be a turning-point election in Mexico on July 1.Trudeau and his cabinet, as well as premiers and business leaders, have been mounting a full-court press on their American counterparts to prevent Trump from killing NAFTA.Trudeau also spoke by phone Wednesday to the premiers of Ontario, Quebec and Saskatchewan.“They all agreed to continue to defend the Canadian steel and aluminum industry from unwarranted tariffs and to stand up for the best interests of all Canadian workers and businesses,” said a readout from the Prime Minister’s Office.Trudeau himself has made multiple overtures to find common ground and forge a personal connection with Trump.Trudeau emphasized that when he spoke to Pence.“I had a good conversation with the vice president yesterday and obviously impressed upon him the fact that I’ve been having direct conversations with the president for close to a year now,” said Trudeau.“He seemed to understand very clearly that national-security issues don’t really apply when you talk about steel or aluminum from Canada.”Canadian aluminum is a component of American jets and Canadian steel is used to build U.S. armoured vehicles, Trudeau said.“We’re continuing to work, highlighting that it would be not great for Canadian workers and Canadian industry, obviously, but it also would be difficult for American workers, American jobs and American consumers, who will pay more for various products.”Macron told the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development in Paris that “threats over trade war will solve nothing of the serious imbalances.”In a dig at Trump, he said: “One can think about making voters happy by saying: ‘I have a victory, I’ll change the rules, you’ll see.’”The EU has promised retaliation if the U.S. tariffs are imposed saying a range of American products from peanut butter to bourbon will be affected.Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, who pushed the steel and NAFTA issues during her meeting Tuesday in Washington with Lighthizer, has also said in the past that Canada would retaliate.“I would like to absolutely assure Canadians, particularly those that work in the steel and aluminum industries, that the government is absolutely prepared to and will defend Canadian industries and Canadian jobs,” she said Wednesday in Ottawa, hours after leaving Washington empty-handed.“We will respond appropriately.”last_img read more

Beneficaries of SC quashing RBIs bad loans circular

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court decision to annul the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI’s) February 12 circular of last year on resolving bad debts is set to benefit several stressed companies which were staring at insolvency proceedings. According to rating agency ICRA, as of September 2018, nearly 70 borrowers with bad debts worth over Rs 3.8 lakh crore, could have eventually being referred for insolvency proceedings as a result of provisions of RBI’s February 12, 2018, circular. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details While the court’s order will have no impact on the classification of a stressed account as a non-performing asset (NPA or bad loan) or on provisions that banks need to set aside on this account, it will give more time and discretion to banks on finalising a res olution plan. The RBI circular mandated lenders to initiate resolution or restructuring of loans of Rs 2,000 crore and above within six months from the date of default, on which the court found that the central bank had acted beyond its legal powers. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday After the expiry of the 180 days, the defaulting borrowers, under the circular struck down by the apex court, had to mandatorily face proceedings under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC). One of the biggest beneficiaries of the Supreme Court order may be the financially troubled Jet Airways, which has a debt of around Rs 10,000 crore. As part of the resolution plan, the State Bank of India (SBI)-led lenders consortium has taken over 50.5 per cent stake in the airline, with a view to selling the shares to a potential buyer in the coming months. Under the nullified RBI circular, banks would have had to finalise a resolution plan for the airline by June if they wanted to avoid insolvency proceedings. With the Court’s quashing of the circular, the bankers have now more time to seek a resolution. Among the large power companies, which might have faced the heat, is the Lalitpur Power Generation Co, the Shishir Bajaj Group’s 1,980 MW thermal power project in Lalitpur, Uttar Pradesh which had been struggling for several years. Multiple efforts were made by the lenders to find a resolution for the account but no headway had bee made. Similarly, the KSK Mahanadi Power Co, a former subsidiary of KSK Energy Ventures, has a total debt of Rs 15,702 crore. Delayed repayments from state-owned power distributors led to cash flow strains for the company and it could not purchase sufficient coal. KSK Mahanadi operates a 3,600 MW thermal power plant in Chhattisgarh, which sells power to Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh. Another such case is Jaiprakash Power Ventures, with an aggregate capacity of 2,220 MW comprising hydro (400 MW) and thermal (1,820 MW) across the country. It owes banks Rs 14,000 crore. Earlier last year, lenders tried to sell near 50 per cent stake in the company but there was a lack of interest among buyers. Various experts have said that the February 12 circular had introduced a lot of rigidity. On the impact of the Supreme Court decision, they said it will not have significant impact on assets of the non-power sectors that are already under resolution.last_img read more
