Canadian Economy Hangs on Future of Pipeline: ICBA
rime Minister Justin Trudeau must act immediately to get the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion project built, a project that was approved 18 months ago, says the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association (ICBA). ICBA is floored by today’s news that Kinder Morgan is close to pulling the plug on this vital national project because of the interference of the B.C. Government. “By strangling Trans Mountain, the B.C. NDP Government would throw away $5.7 billion in provincial tax revenue, $1 billion in municipal tax revenue, and the opportunities that come with 15,000 construction jobs and 189,000 person-years of employment,” said Chris Gardner, ICBA president. “This decision will send a simple chilling message to businesses looking to start or expand major projects here – stay away from B.C. because you cannot rely on the government to honour its commitments or follow the law.” Trans Mountain pipeline was approved two years ago after a 29-month long process and had 194 environmental and legal conditions attached that Kinder Morgan has to meet during the construction and operation of the pipeline. But the deliberate and unfair interference of the B.C. NDP and Burnaby city governments saw the province and city hall actively engage in activities designed to deliberately terminate the project.
for Canada’s economy would be irreparable.” “The impact would be felt in communities across not only B.C. but also Western Canada – no Trans Mountain royalties, no Trans Mountain jobs, and no investment in training and new technology that comes along with a $7.4 billion investment in our economy.” “The province and the city of Burnaby have not acted fairly and have given no thought to the national interest. In fact, the opposite has occurred, Premier Horgan has started a trade war with Alberta and brought into question what it means for a province to be part of this great country.” The energy sector in Canada directly employs over 425,000 men and women and is the single largest source of private sector investment in the country. Yet the companies like Kinder Morgan, which are investing, or planning to invest, billions of dollars in our economy are vilified at nearly every turn.
“Canada’s energy sector is being hollowed out – Canada is losing investment, jobs and talent. Capital that should be committed to projects in Canada is instead being deployed in other jurisdictions providing “Once this project was approved by the opportunities and growth for our federal government after an exhaustive competitors.” review process, the provincial NDP ICBA has been a strong supporter of government and Burnaby city hall were the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion required to act in good faith, and to project through its #Get2Yes platform. process permits properly – a message It is concerned that everyday British reinforced by court decisions,” said Columbians – including the nearly Gardner. “If this project fails because 50,000 who work with ICBA-affiliated of their illegal maneuvering, it would companies – will be hurt by this be a crushing blow to Canada’s oil decision. and gas sector and the repercussions

Facilitating travel to Canada while keeping Canadians safe
anadians are invited to provide input on new regulations to expand Canada’s Biometrics Program
safe. For more than 20 years, biometrics (fingerprints and a photograph) have played a role in supporting immigration screening and decision-making in Canada.
The Government of Canada encourages all Canadians to consider the importance of expanding biometrics in the context of helping facilitate the entry of travellers with legitimate identities, preventing identity fraud, and keeping Canada safe.
Canada has long had one of the highest per capita rates of immigration in the In 2018, Canada intends to expand world and is an attractive destination its biometrics program to all foreign for immigrants and visitors. nationals applying for a visitor visa, a study or work permit (excluding U.S. Accurately establishing identity is nationals), and to all those applying an important part of immigration for permanent residence. Canada currently collects decisions and helps keep Canadians biometrics from in-Canada
refugee claimants and overseas refugee resettlement applicants, individuals ordered removed from Canada and individuals from 30 foreign nationalities applying for a temporary resident visa, work permit, or study permit. Expanding biometrics will strengthen Canada’s immigration programs through effective screening (biometric collection, verification, and information-sharing with partner countries). It will also enable Canada to facilitate application processing and travel – while maintaining public confidence in our immigration system. The expansion of Canada’s biometrics program, which includes the implementation of new requirements for immigration applicants, an expanded biometrics collection service
network and automated fingerprint verification at ports of entry, will be rolled out over 2 years (2018 –2019). The pre-publication and consultation period, from April 7 to May 6, 2018, is designed to give the public an opportunity to provide feedback on the text of the proposed Regulations once they are published in the Canada Gazette, Part I.

ated with raw or undercooked BC oysters were reported in BC, Alberta and Ontario. The outbreak was declared over in April, 2017. Learn more in the BCCDC’s Annual Summary of Reportable Diseases, under Norovirus.
Since early March 2018, approximately 40 cases of acute gastrointestinal illness have been reported to public health authorities in BC. All of the ill people reported consuming raw BC oysters. Laboratory testing has confirmed the presence of norovirus in some of the cases and it is suspected in the others. The investigation is ongoing.
While the precise sources of contamination have not been identified, human sewage in the marine environment is currently believed to be the most plausible cause of shellfish contamination. Anyone becoming ill with diarrhea and vomiting after eating shellfish should call BC HealthLink at 811. If symptoms are severe or persist, they should see their physician. Oysterrelated illness can be reported to your local health authority for investigation and follow-up.
In order to kill norovirus and other pathogens, the BCCDC recommends consumers cook oysters thoroughly, to an internal temperature of 90˚C (degrees Celsius) for 90 seconds. Consumption of raw oysters is not For most people, norovirus is a selfencouraged. limiting illness and people will recover Two oyster farms implicated in the on their own with proper hydration and outbreak have been closed by federal rest.

New and extended leaves support working families
arry Bains, Minister of Labour, introduced amendments to the Employment Standards Act
The amendments, if approved by the legislature, will better support working families in British Columbia by providing new, extended and more flexible maternity, parental and compassionate care leaves. “These amendments are about supporting B.C. workers and extending compassion to families who face tragic circumstances, such as the loss or disappearance of a child, or the need to care for a dying family member,” said Bains. “It will not erase the pain experienced during a personal or family crisis, but it can help ease the worry and stress over job security.”

In addition to the extended maternity and parental leave amendments, Bains introduced a new unpaid, job-protected leave of up to 52 weeks to help if a worker’s child is missing as a result of a crime. Currently, there is no provision in B.C. for parents to take a leave from work in the event their child is missing. In addition, the Province will introduce a new unpaid leave providing job protection for parents dealing with the death of a child. This leave will provide up to 104 weeks if a worker’s child under 19 years of age dies under any circumstances — a significant addition to the three days of unpaid “bereavement leave” currently available.

The Ministry of Labour is looking to make broader amendments to the Employment Standards Act, considering recommendations from the BC Law Institute’s review of the act — which is currently underway — and from organizations like the B.C.

The applicants included B.As, M.A.s , engineers and other highly qualified people. They were all eager to get a stable and secure employment.

Premier’s statement on Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain expansion Premier John Horgan has issued the following statement regarding Kinder Morgan’s decision to suspend non-essential spending on the Trans Mountain expansion project: “British Columbians expect their government to stand up for their interests and our coast, and to do everything we can to protect our land and waters, our coastal communities and our local economies.
“The federal process failed to consider B.C.’s interests and the risk to our province. We joined the federal challenge, started by others, to make that point.” “We believe we need to grow the economy, while protecting the environment. We want to work to address these challenges together. But we will always stand up for British Columbians, our environment and the thousands of jobs that depend on our coast.”

Something can begin to stir in your mind about action, which would be best taken when it comes to future goals. You could begin to gain a clearer picture of the commitments you would need to be prepared to make. There can be a tendency to overlook the amount of finer detail involved but you will find out soon enough.
Activities with others but particularly within a group of people can be most enjoyable. It could turn into something bigger than you initially expect. Be cautious about anything you are pressed to agree with or any person who is very strong about their ideas as it will be difficult to gauge exactly what they are looking for.

You can feel challenged with what might seem never ending matters to deal with on a daily basis and that there is no conclusion in sight. Rather than worry too much about this you should take an optimistic view on it working out satisfactorily. You do have support from people who have authority, so it will all work out eventually.
Anything you are uncertain about when it comes to the expectations of others, you should simply ask questions. If they don’t want to tell you it will be made very clear but this may not necessarily be the way things go. Anything practical that needs to be dealt with or impacts upon things on a daily basis can be sorted quite easily.
The Full Moon this week occurs in your sign. This can generate much self- awareness when it comes to your own position and that of others. You could feel overwhelmed by others right now but much is up to the way you decide to respond. You can be strong-minded about the manner in which you want to establish matters
It is important you get the right information that will enable you to get on top of any situation that makes you feel like a slave to circumstance. This is challenging you to put a structure in place that will be enduring but also something that you can have greater control over. If money is involved it is possible to improve the situation.
You will enjoy being in any situation that is either generous to you or allows you to create some benefit. You can express practical, down to earth ideas without seeming out of touch. This might be necessary, especially if there is any expectation for you to be putting money into something has been lacking boundaries.
You will be fired up to get things in place so that what follows on has a good foundation to operate from. Your vision won’t be bound but when it comes to others involved you will need to be persistent in leading the way so that matters take to path you want. This is because they can wander off the track quite easily.
There will be more to handle than you initially anticipate so be very careful about committing yourself to things when it seems you have plenty of time available. You need to deal with matters that involve you personally and require your attention and leave any opportunities for social involvement floating until the last minute.
There is a lot of focus on your finances with some aspects having the opportunity to work to your benefit. Any situation where you are owed money could come to a head and you should not hesitate to take appropriate action to state your priorities or to express what you expect. The final conclusion might be slow but it is positive.
You may not know how to take what becomes obvious about somebody else. You need to put your focus on your own position and be very clear and definite, in your own mind, when it comes to any responsibilities you are willing to accept. What will give you pleasure in the long term may need to be taken into account as well.

Tension can arise through somebody else taking a dominant approach, especially if they are of the opinion you should either be more responsible or enter into greater levels of commitment. There could be more to handle on a daily basis than you imagined but for the moment this is not likely to prove troublesome to you.

Leasing or financing – which one’s right for you? (NC) Getting into a new or previously enjoyed vehicle can be an overwhelming task. Among the many considerations, one of the most important will be how to actually pay for your new purchase.

Cons: Leasing is essentially a long-
term rental unless you choose to buy out the vehicle at the end of the lease. You are therefore responsible for excessive mileage and any damage that may occur.

aisakhi Festival is celebrated as the Sikh New Year and the founding of the Khalsa Panth. History of Vaisakhi traces its origin from the Vaisakhi Day celebrations of 1699 organized by the Tenth Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh to form Khalsa - Brotherhood of Saint Soldiers to fight against tyranny and oppression. The story of Vaisakhi Festival began with the martyrdom of Guru Teg Bahadur, the ninth Sikh Guru who was publicly beheaded by the Aurungzeb, the Mughal ruler. Aurungzeb wanted to spread Islam in India and Guru Tegh Bahadur stood up for the rights of Hindus and Sikhs and the Mughals therefore saw him as a threat. After the death of Guru Teg Bahadur, his son, Guru Gobind Singh became the next Guru of the Sikhs. Guru Gobind Singh wished to instill courage and strength to sacrifice among his fellow men. To fulfil his dream, Guru Gobind Singh called on the historic Vaisakhi Day congregation of
Sikhs at Keshgarh Sahib near Anandpur on March 30, 1699. When thousands of people assembled for Guru’s blessing, Guru Gobind Singh came out of the tent carrying an unsheathed sword. He gave a powerful speech to infuse courage amongst fellowmen. At the end of the speech he said that every great deed was preceded by equally great sacrifice and demanded that anyone prepared to give his life come forward. On the Guru’s third call, a young man offered himself. The Guru took the man inside a tent and reappeared alone with a bloodied sword. Guru Gobind Singh asked for another volunteer. This was repeated another four times until a

total of five Sikhs had gone into the tent with the Guru. Everyone present was worried and though that Guru Gobind Singh has killed five Sikhs. At this point Guru presented all the five men before the people. Everyone present was surprised to see all five men alive and wearing turbans and saffron-coloured garments. These five men were called Panj Piara or ‘Beloved Five’ by the Guru. The Guru blessed them with a Pahul ceremony. In an iron vessel, the Guru stirred with a sword called Khanda Sahib, the batasha that his wife, Mata Sundari Ji had put into water. The congregation recited verses from scriptures as the Guru performed the sacred ceremony. The water was now considered the sacred nectar of immortality called amrit. It was first given to the five volunteers, then drunk by the guru and later distributed amongst the crowd. With this ceremony, all those present, irrespective of caste or creed, became members of the Khalsa Pantha (the Order of the Pure Ones).
The Guru regarded the Panch Piaras as the first members of the Khalsa and the embodiment of the Guru himself. With the constitution of the Panj Pyare the high and low castes were amalgamated into one as among the original Panj Pyare, there was one Khatri, shopkeeper; one Jat, farmer; one Chhimba, calico printer; one Ghumar, water-carrier; and one Nai, a barber. The Guru gave the surname of Singh (Lion) to every Sikh and also took the name for himself. From Guru Gobind Rai he became Guru Gobind Singh. This was seen as a great step in national integration because society at that time was divided on the basis of religion, caste and social status. Guru Gobind Singh also bestowed on Khalsa, the unique Sikh identity. He directed Sikhs to wear five K’s: Kesh or long hair, Kangha or comb, Kripan or dagger, Kachha or shorts and a Kara or bracelet. Guru Gobind Singh also discontinued the tradition of Gurus and asked all Sikhs to accept the Grantha Sahib as their eternal guide. He urged them to come to him with their hair and beard unshorn to get baptized by the sword.
Three Reasons to Celebrate Vaisakhi It is a very important function of the Punjabis. It is celebrated on the first day of the month of Vaisakh, April 14. Vaisakh means the sprouting of new leaves and shoots on the trees and blooming of various kinds of flowers with different fragrances. People celebrate the change of season and beauties of nature, according to their “The Pure.” Guru Ji wanted his followers (Sikhs) to be brave and fearown way. less who can stand against injustice Secondly, Vaisakhi is a harvest festi- and ever ready to sacrifice their lives val.

Felt burnt out after Judwaa 2 : Varun In his six years in the industry, Varun Dhawan has effortlessly established himself as every director's first choice, among the young crop of actors, for masala movies. But the youngster refuses to be confined to being a masala film hero — his upcoming release, October, is proof of that. A far cry from his commercial entertainers like Judwaa 2 (2017), Badrinath Ki Dulhania (2017) or Main Tera Hero (2014), the movie sees him trying his hand at a mature love story. Dhawan insists it was a conscious decision to veer towards the Shoojit Sircar directed-venture. "As time goes by, there are certain personal incidents that bring about changes. It happened with me also. I felt that I have done entertaining films, so I need
People know me now thanks to Lipstick Under My Burkha: Aahana Kumra Actor Aahana Kumra, who has featured in Alankrita Srivastava’s directorial Lipstick Under My Burkha, says she wants to do more slice of life genre films now. The actor who will be seen in Anupam Kher-starrer The Accidental Prime Minister, in an interview said, “I want to do a film which is more light… A slice of life kind of film… I have not done such kind of a film in the true sense. So, I want to do that. Though Lipstick Under My Burkha was something like that but it became a film with social messages. Something where ‘baat kehdi and kisi ko bura nahi laga (a statement is made without hurting anyone).” Did doing a film like Lipstick Under My Burkha, which not only had an ensemble cast including names like Ratna Pathak and Konkona Sen Sharma, but also addressed crucial social issues faced by women, open more doors for her in the film industry?
to do something else. I felt burnt out after Judwaa 2. There was a sense of exhaustion. I couldn't have done a similar film without feeling fake about it," says the actor. Varun Dhawan believes in juggling the commercial fare with unconventional movies — he had chosen the gritty Badlapur (2015) early on in his career. Like Badlapur, he feels Sircar's offering too will help him evolve as an artiste. "As an actor, if you do not try out different things, there will be no growth. You need to constantly evolve."
Not God's gift to mankind : Aditi Once perturbed by the hatred meted out to them on social media, industry folk have become increasingly skilled at dealing with trolls. Aditi Rao Hydari — the most recent victim of the vile culture — found herself battling derogatory comments for sharing tweets that praised her Padmaavat act.Hydari, who'd often retweet fan messages that spoke well of her performance as Mehrunissa in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed film, was taken aback when a user said it was disappointing to see her do so after delivering an "ordinary performance". Hydari said that her decision to share such messages stems from her desire to acknowledge admirers. "I chose to respond to the troll this time to tell him that I wasn't sharing fan messages to praise myself. I was doing so to express my gratitude for them. For an actor like me, who has never enjoyed support from industry folk, it is the people's love, and the directors who I've worked with, that has enabled me to grow." Her Padmaavat act, backed by a power-packed outing in Mani Ratnam's Kaatru Veliyidai last year, has brought Hydari under the spotlight again. However, she says her achievements haven't made way for arrogance. "I don't think I'm God's gift to mankind. I believe the directors and teams associated with the projects have made me shine. I contribute by surrendering to their vision."
Will try doing at least two films a year : Kartik Aaryan Actor Kartik Aaryan, who is enjoying the success of his latest release Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, says he will now try and do at least two films a year. The actor has done six films in a career spanning over seven years. Asked why he has kept low frequency of appearing on-screen
Don't know why I've had an urban image : Ali Fazal
and if he will continue doing that, Kartik said: “Actually, I kept my frequency very low when it came to featuring in a movie. But from now, I will try to increase that frequency and do more films.“It was conscious decision from my side. I think I am able to concentrate more when I do one film at one time but now onwards, I will try to do at least two films in a year.”Kartik has managed to grab a lot of attention with his latest hit Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, and he has found a fan in Hrithik Roshan’s mother Pinky Roshan.
Ali Fazal, who is busy working on Tigmanshu Dhulia's Milan Talkies, set in Allahabad, wonders why he has had an "urban image" in people's mind. The Lucknow-born actor, who was in news last year for his international film "Victoria & Abdul", was in his hometown to shoot parts of Milan Talkies.During an on-set interaction, the Fukrey actor spoke about how he landed a role in Dhulia's film. "The experience has been nice. I've always looked up to Tigmanshu sir's work. I went to his office very casually once... I've never gone to someone's office like that. I guess it was just fate... I got a call from him three years later, asking, 'What are you doing?' And I came (on board)."I'm very excited to get on to this journey. It's something different. I have not been a part of such projects before. I've had a very different image... Urban, subtle... I don't know why... I don't know, that was wrong," Ali said. "Milan Talkies" is a small town love story. The movie revolves around the sorry predicament of singlescreen theatres in the days of the multiplex, and as the narrative is based in the north of India, it requires a typical accent.
