universities or colleges to penetrate our own markets while we are the nations do nothing. The strategy is that the government together with investors or private universities or colleges to establish international departments or divisions. Another strategy is also by opening the new universities or colleges with the international levels. If even these two strategies cannot be done, there must be collaboration with other foreign universities or colleges to have the international education institutions as part of the domestic universities or colleges. Whatever strategies to be done, there must be a mission of improving the nations by providing the best quality of education. We can realize that any nation in the world must be balanced in terms of education quality for the whole people in the country. More logically, the balance of education quality should also be prepared both in the global level in the world and the national level. Otherwise, there must be social and economic discrepancies among the nations in the world and especially among the people in a country. Many people are busy with their day-to-day operation and this can make

them trapped in the monotonous activities. This kind of management will endanger the whole nation because they cannot reach the high level of standard both educational quality and finally living standard. The international conference, which is held today should also address this phenomenon so that the HEIs can start their new strategies for innovation and improvement. Quality in higher education should not only be increased, but also balanced among the nations in the global area and national regions. Researchers, intellectuals, as well as the policy makers in the Philippines and Indonesia should, handin-hand, collaborate with private and government agencies together with industries to improve the HEIs quality in both national and international scales. This is due to the global era which invites the nations and the governments as well as the intellectuals to make a good decision for innovation. Improving education quality is the first step to developing the nations.

toxic POPs like furan and dioxins. These activities include forest fires, burning of sugarcane and agricultural residues, as well as waste burning and accidental fires. Inventories of participating countries have revealed that open burning accounts for more than one kilogram toxicity equivalent per year of polychlorinated dibenzop-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/PCDFs) released into the environment. These chemicals are considered “probable carcinogens” that can accumulate in fatty tissues in humans and lead to increased risk for tumors, diabetes and thyroid disorders. Other effects have also been noted on reproduction and sexual development, and the immune and nervous systems.

They are expected to become executing partners for the project. The project will introduce globally recognized techniques and practices in creating resource-efficient waste management systems to cut POP emissions produced unintentionally and released into the atmosphere. It aims to reduce the POP release at the pilot sites by 90 percent. It also aims for five major outcomes: to improve legislation specifically on introducing best available techniques (BAT) and best environmental practices (BEP) for open burning; strengthen the institution to implement BAT/BEP; demonstrate such practices in open burning sources; improve knowledge and understanding on BAT/ BEP and connected risks; and establish a monitoring from page A8 and evaluation system. offset program, will be Open burning activities were found to be releasing developed and implemented

Uy’s foothold in Oro politics FROM a barangay kagawad to becoming a congressman, Rolando “Klarex” Uy has grown to become a formidable political force in Cagayan de Oro. When he started as out as barangay kagawad or village councilman in the city’s biggest barangay or village of Carmen years ago, he was ignored by the politicians and the powers that be in the city. He wasn’t considered important enough, then, nor even a threat to the incumbents. Uy, the guy from Misamis Occidental was shy in disposition, but whose asset was giving that friendly smile to everyone he meets. Nowadays, it’s quite different for Uy as his support is eagerly sought by the incumbent officials and those aspiring to run for office. More importantly, no one is willing to challenge him on his turf. From the reports I gathered, incumbent Vice Mayor Ian Acenas, former mayor and congressman Constantino Jaraula and former congressman Benjo Benaldo don’t want to challenge Uy. These men don’t want to risk ending their political career by running against Uy, who has established barangay Carmen and Cagayan de Oro’s 1st district as his bailiwick. And Uy didn’t establish his foothold in barangay Carmen overnight. He is the personification of the common man who made it in the cutthroat world of

politics usually dominated by the rich and elite by knowing what the people in his district needs and wants. Uy or “Landoy” as his wife and close family calls him set about building his niche in the first district by opening his house to everyone. It is like Malacañang except that it isn’t gated or secured by barricades or high walls with barbed wire. Uy’s house is visited by all people, especially the poor who need food, medicines and fare. The kitchen is the busiest part of the house. Those who visit can partake of the hot soup or any food the family is eating. All is welcome to eat in Uy’s house so long as you tell him the purpose of your visit. Uy quickly made a name for himself in Carmen and gaining the trust and confidence of residents there for his personalized and sensitive approach to

the common problems in the barangay. Other politicians rent a place or a part of their house is allocated where their constituents can visit, but not in Uy’s home where it is shared with whoever is visiting at the moment. Again, Uy’s endorsement is now sought by local officials and politicians alike because he knows the people of his district by name and he is more talkative with these people instead of the people wearing barong Tagalog or suits. Let’s pause for a little throwback moment; Uy hired me to handle his media/PR campaign in 2010 when he ran for mayor and I gladly accepted the offer because I know he was an easy sell. If he was a product I have to sell there is no change of the product because Uy knows already what the public wants. I know that he, not former mayor Vicente Emano, won in that controversial 2010 election. He has never been afraid to take a chance or to make a decision that can take a potentially life-changing wrong turn. Uy made a U-turn when he abandoned his protest in the 2010 election and opted to run as barangay chairman of Carmen anew so he can rebuild his “political turf.” When he won as congressman in Cagayan de Oro’s first district few expected that Uy, the perennially shy man from Jimenez, Misamis Occidental, can

win a seat in Congress. Everything can change. This piece may sound too biased for Uy but anyone who knows him, including his opponents and wouldbe opponents, have a lot to learn from Him. He may not be articulate, but he possesses a kind spirit that is obvious to anyone. Indeed, it is hard to fight Uy as his instinct for the campaign trail was second to none. He knows his district like the back of his hand, practically traveling to every inch of land and talking with the people many times to establish that enviable breadth of knowledge, wisdom and experience that few politicians can ever hope to achieve, let alone match. ••• (Susan Palmes-Dennis is a veteran journalist from Cagayan de Oro City, Misamis Oriental, Northern Mindanao in the Philippines is now employed teacher assistant in one of the school systems in the Carolinas.

countries are identified as the biggest market base. More interestingly, in Asian level, there will be the biggest markets too. These markets in the Asian level are China, India, Africa, and again Indonesia and the Philippines. In the context of education sector, the international colleges or universities are trying to broaden their territories by expanding to at least theses five countries. They try hard to grab their new students as the student intake by grabbing the prospective students as their potential markets. The most interesting phenomenon is that, both in ASEAN level and Asian level, the Philippines and Indonesia are still the markets which need to be grabbed

by them. This evidence provides us with the beneficial clues, especially for all the HEIs and educators as well as the policy makers in the two countries—the Philippines and Indonesia—to make strategic decisions. The strategic decision is that, these two countries should grab the opportunity for increasing the HEIs’ broad mindedness. It means that the policy makers must provide some strategies to the colleges or universities for improving the scale of education management. For example, they should lead the HEIs to become both national and international higher education institution levels. The strategy above is intended to avoid other

Local legislators hit NAIA’s tanim bala operandi By Joey Sem G. Dalumpines of PIA

DAVAO City--Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte welcomed the move by travelers to seal their baggage with

plastic cellophane before submitting for security check at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. He told reporters that he personally experienced this


problem with her babysitter in May this year when they discovered a bullet in her baggage during an initial security check at the airport. The younger Duterte

revealed the police did not bother to arrest her babysitter and simply took the bullet upon knowing that the person was his companion. “We were also wondering

why there was a bullet in her bag which was simply taken by the police,” he said. Duterte said the law is very strict on carrying an explosive like a bullet inside the airport. He warned passengers to be watchful of their baggage when traveling through the airport. Earlier, Councilor Karlo Bello, chair of the committee on human rights, in a privilege speech took potshots on the tanim-bala malpractice and underscored to respect the rights of airline passengers accused of bullets found in their luggage. He said security checks may be justified due to the occurrence of terrorism, but it must be done by persons with integrity. Bello said that under

the hands of persons with ill-motive, this procedure can be called a procedure for persecution. He expressed support to the call to investigate the laglag-bala modus operandi, especially the one that involved an engineer who was accused of illegal possession of bullet following a security check at the Davao International Airport, where a bullet was found in his bag. “I like was call the national leadership to ensure the security and safety of the passengers, which is more important than our reputation before the international community,” Bello said.

from page A6 that at the NAIA, many of the victims are those with connecting flights overseas from their domestic flights in the Philippines. He said most of the victims are either foreigners or overseas Filipino workers. Dayanghirang called this modus operandi as unfair to the efforts of OFWs. “I condemned this deed to the highest degree of condemnation and I called on the president to take full responsibility to remove the entire team responsible at law enforcement at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport while the investigation is ongoing,” he said.

from page A5 able to make the no balance billing (NBB) really work in local government-owned Cabadbaran District Hospital, citing success factors such as prudent use of the revolving fund as well as retraining of hospital employees to make them more efficient in assisting PhilHealth members. The governor challenged her colleagues in the region to do the same and implement the no balance billing in hospitals in their respective localities to help alleviate the financial woes of poor patients.“I challenge other LGUs to implement the no balance billing for poor patient-members in their area,” Matba said. PhilHealth president and chief executive officer Alexander A. Padilla mentioned that “for the last seven months we have been going around the country to conduct this activity to really impart the importance of the new NHI Act of 2013 which espouses a paradigm shift in the implementation of the program.” The PhilHealth chief also shared that “five years ago, PhilHealth was giving out P300 to P400 million a week but at present, we are paying about P1.7 billion a week in reimbursements.” With this trend, PhilHealth benefit payments may reach around P100 billion at the end of this year. Padilla urged the LCEs to go beyond the election fever and “be responsible for those who are enrolled in their LGUs and push for the enrollment of Barangay Health Workers and Nutrition Scholars for them to be part of the program.” Making reference to the policy on Accredited Collecting Agents for PhilHealth, the PhilHealth Chief said that the local government units are the perfect collection windows through which premium payments from all PhilHealth members in their localities may be received. The SHInES aims to further the knowledge and awareness of PhilHealth’s external partners on the NHIP to make them strong and effective advocates of the program. (Dr. Israel Francis A.

The sea cow species and all species of sea turtle found in the region are listed as endangered,” the report said. “Phyto-, nano-, zoo-, and ichthyoplankton, as well as coral and benthic species were found in abundance during oceanographic surveys which included diving surveys. The sea grass density ranged from 772.0 to 3,174.2 shoots per square meter,” it noted.

THE Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) on Wednesday launched a new project aiming to reduce air pollution from open burning, which can cause serious health problems and damage the environment. The project was meant to showcase the best available techniques and environmental practices in open burning activities in response to the Stockholm Convention on persistent organic pollutants (POPs). It is to be implemented by the DENR’s Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) and DENR Foreign Assisted and Special Projects Service (FASPS), along with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), under a US$1.512million grant from the Global Environment Facility (GEF). DENR Assistant Secretary and concurrent EMB Director Juan Miguel Cuna said that the project is also being implemented in four other Asian countries. These are Cambodia, Laos, Mongolia and Vietnam. “This project launch reaffirms our support, on the national and regional levels, as well as our unrelenting strong partnership with UNIDO, to address the global problem on POPs and accelerate strategies to reduce them,” he stated. During the project launch, a memorandum of agreement (MOA) was signed between the EMB and General Santos City, one of the two pilot demonstration sites in the country. The other is Lapu Lapu City in Cebu province. Cuna signed the MOA on behalf of the EMB, while city administrator Atty. Arnel Zapatos signed on behalf of the GenSan LGU. Under the deal, the local government of GenSan agrees to ensure acceptance and support of the project by stakeholders through consultations, and take steps to prohibit open burning while shifting to recycling or reusing wastes that are commonly burned. It also agrees to provide counterpart contributions in cash or kind and ensure the proper utilization of financial resources through ordinances. GenSan will submit periodic reports to the EMB and UNIDO as part of regular coordination activities. For its part, the EMB will assign coordinators and focal persons to provide technical assistance in the implementation of the project work plan. The bureau will also coordinate with other agencies and institutions to support the project and perform periodic monitoring activities on the progress of the project.

Early exposure to dogs, far animals may cut asthma risk CHILDREN who are exposed to dogs or farm animals during their first year of life may have a reduced risk of asthma at the age of six, according to a study published Monday by the US journal JAMA Pediatrics. The findings are in accordance with the so-called hygiene hypothesis, which suggests that too clean environments promote allergies, including asthma. “Earlier studies have shown that growing up on a farm reduces a child’s risk of asthma by about half,” lead author Tove Fall of the Uppsala University in Sweden, said in a statement. “We wanted to see if this relationship also was true also for children growing up with dogs in their homes.” In the new study, Fall and colleagues looked at data from all of the more than 1 million children born from 2001 through 2010 in Sweden, where dog owners have been required by law to register their pet since 2001. The analyses included nearly 660,000 preschool-age or schoolage children who are exposed to dogs or farm animals. They found that dog exposure during the first year of life was associated with a 13 percent decreased risk of asthma in sixyear-old children, while farm animal exposure cut the risk by 52 percent. The researchers noted that their results were independent of parental asthma or whether the child was first-born. “For what we believe to be the first time in a nationwide setting, we provide evidence of a reduced risk of childhood asthma in sixyear-old children exposed to dogs and farm animals,” they wrote. “This information See risk, page A3

Group says mining project threatens biodiversity in Southern Mindanao, neighboring regions MALAYBALAY City––An impending mining project in Southern Mindanao threatens the area’s biodiversity as well as the ecology of neighboring regions, an environment group said citing a technical report by an American consultancy firm. The King-king Copper-Gold Project will affect 12 “vulnerable or critically endangered” species of the 253 native or endemic plant species present in the area, as defined by the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List and the Philippine National Red List, the Francis S. Morales Resource Center said in a press statement Monday. The project will also affect six bird species endemic to Mindanao of the 74 bird species in the area, and a total of 17 mammal species and 10 reptile species. FSMRC said these findings are contained in the 2013 NI

43-101-compliant Technical Report and Preliminary Feasibility Study of M3 Engineering & Technology, a US-based consultancy firm contracted by St. Augustine Gold & Copper to conduct the study in compliance with Canada’s National Instrument 43-101, which is supposedly required under Canadian laws. The copper-gold project was reportedly to be approved within this month, the group said. FSMRC further quoted he report as saying that several of the wildlife species found in the region “are listed as near-threatened or vulnerable by the IUCN, while others are protected by Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), including 11 bird species, two (2) mammal species and five (5) reptile and amphibian species.” “Marine studies showed that several species of sea turtles,

Italpinas P242M IPO approved by SEC Cagayan de Oro, Misamis Oriental -Italpinas Development Corporation (IDC), a sustainable real estate firm, has its P242-Million planned IPO approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The company offers 57.62-million shares to the public at P4.20 per share price offer, to raise P242 million by listing at the small, medium, and emerging (SME) board of the Philippines Stock Exchange (PSE). Established in 2009 by Romolo V. Nati, an Italian architect; and Jose “Jojo” D. Leviste III, a Filipino lawyer, IDC is a design-driven, real estate development company. “Investment in IDC is attractive to both local and foreign investors seeking exposure to the momentum of the Philippines’ demographic trajectory, and also overseas Filipinos seeking to invest in world-class living standards in their home provinces,” IDC

executive chairman and COO Romolo V. Nati said. Italpinas is focused on designing sustainable but accessible mixeduse developments (residential, office, commercial) housing in up and coming cities, such as Cagayan de Oro City, Sto. Tomas and Lipa in Batangas; and Dumaguete in Negros Oriental, among others. The company decided to do these developments to address the demand for quality housing in these areas. IDC also aims to become the first, in any of these cities, to introduce the concept of sustainable living with first-class amenities. The company, likewise, aims to help the Philippines address its rapid urbanization, which creates not only environmental problems like pollution, but also social problems like lack of housing facilities mainly in growing cities. “One way to decongest Metro Manila is to develop

the provinces. People live in the crowded city because developers usually build properties in the metro, but if you put your buildings in the emerging cities and provinces, people will also invest and live there,” Nati said. “Supporting growth of viable and attractive cities throughout the Philippines would not only reverse urban migration, but also spread commerce and resources more broadly to millions of Filipinos across our archipelago,” said Jojo

Leviste, president of IDC and renewable energy company Constellation Energy Corporation (CEC) Philippines. The company’s building philosophy is focused on sustainability which aims to meet economical, environmental, and social goals. This gives the firm and unique selling point when it comes to its building projects. The company is set to complete its first project in Cagayan de Oro, Primavera Residences. It prides

itself of a sustainablearchitectural design and Italian flair that would appeal to local residents, overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) from the provinces, and those looking to purchase homes that use sustainable energy and chic living. Nati said the inspiration behind IDC’s projects is the native bahay kubo which, to him, is the most sustainable form of architecture because of its locally sourced materials, such as nipa and bamboo.

The bahay kubo, he said, allows natural light in and ushers in a cool breeze through light and eco-friendly materials. Further, it is floodresistant because it is built on wooden stilts. In the same way, Nati said, their projects feature the use of natural light with all units having options to have open windows on both sides which will also have natural freeze breeze in. With these, “passive green features” the unit owners can save more than 22% energy consumption.

To have more is not a sin The Gospel of Jesus Christ (November4, 2015Wednesday)Luke 16:19-31” And a poor man named Lazarus was laid at his gate, covered with sores, and longing to be fed with the crumbs which were falling from the rich man’s table; besides, even the dogs were coming and licking his sores. Now the poor man died and was carried away by the angels to Abraham’s bosom;

and the rich man also died and was buried. “In Hades he lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and saw Abraham far away and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried out and said, `Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus so that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool off my tongue, for I am in agony in this flame: Mark 8:18” HAVING EYES, DO YOU NOT SEE? AND

HAVING EARS, DO YOU NOT HEAR? And do you not remember. What is lacking is the openness of your heart to see the people’s agony in your surroundings. There are many time that we are like Pontius Pilate who washed his hands to escape from a certain accountability and sin. The truth, he committed a big sin for that because he had the power supposedly

to let Jesus free. This is also happenings to each one of us because we never mind the people around us. Take note, to have more is not a sin but it is a mortal sin if you will not share although you have more in your life.

Education is essential to mankind

By Jennifer P. Paye Teacher – III Sinacaban District

Education is an important matter that should be attained of mankind. Through doing so, he can gain understanding not just on his school lessons but on unlimited number of things that are important in life. A person knows that everything which resulted to success or mess is a result of an action that he decided to do. Thus, he needs to hold control over his

thinking through critical decisionmaking. Making an intelligent decision is about weighing things, knowing the possible after-results of both sides and deciding which of these sides that he should go to. Being intelligent of realizing the end results of each decision, being knowledgeable of a lot of things help a person to decide smart. Education teaches a man to be a responsible decision-maker. Education is also a big help in improving life. Most, if not

all, companies and establishments accepts individuals who are educated because they are more capable to perform certain tasks successfully and efficiently. Learning essential things in life helps a person to think better, understand critical situations and achieve smart decisions. A person who do not value education is a person who seeks no improvement at all. Education is the path to personal progress.

Realizing dreams in life through Education By Genilyn L. Mercado, Ph.D. Teacher – III Natubo Elementary School

Every child has a dream in life; that someday he will be able to taste a cone of ice cream in his preferred flavor, to buy his pair of shoes and clothes, and to visit Enchanted Kingdom and shout in happiness. These are small dreams that make the difference – small dreams that encourage each child to row the challenges of education. Poverty is one of the top reasons why children are hindered to go to school. Seeing the number of out-of-school children tells how much of education gap that is still need to be addressed. It is the fact behind the creation of several program implementations that Department of Education is doing, such as Alternative Learning System. It is a delivery of education that

serves as alternative to regular, formal schooling. The best thing is, it is created in a mode that fits the distinct situations and needs of the students. It is communitybased, usually conducted at community learning centers, barangay multi-purpose hall, libraries or at home and managed by ALS learning facilitators Another is the Open High School Program. It is designed to provide education to those who wish to continue their education. OHSP caters elementary school graduates, high school drop-outs and placement tests passers. These are programs that targets to create access to learning and serve as bridge between individuals and education. Education is the ladder to

the attainment of dreams. These dreams are not just simply mere dreams, for behind that cone of ice cream is the dream of a Filipino youth to provide food for the family, behind that pair of shoes is the dream to have a sustainable career and behind that dream of visiting Enchanted Kingdom is the dream to see happiness all around because finally, goals and targets are achieved. Through completing education, all these are possible, dreams could be realized.

accommodations which visitors to the country can now avail of through the online booking websites such as Airbnb. Airbnb is a website for people to list, find, and rent lodging. It has over 1,500,000 listings in 34,000 cities and 190 countries. It allows travelers, especially those traveling on a limited budget, to book their accommodation online. The Airbnb website at Philippines currently lists around 300 vacation rentals all over the country from Metro Manila, Cebu, Balabag, Taguig, Botolan including houses, bed & breakfasts, lofts and villas. A business daily recently reported Airbnb, Inc. is projecting Philippine home listings and clients to grow 300 percent by the end of 2015 and by the same margin in 2016 by expanding outside Metro Manila. Airbnb Ph has partnered with Smart Communications, Inc. in offering discounts for Smart subscribers, PLDT HOME subscribers and clients of PLDT Alpha Enterprise and PLDT Smart SME Nation. The issue of unfair competition from Airbnb hosts to accredited hotels and similar establishments was raised during the Mindanao Regional Meeting of the Tourism Congress Philippines (TCP) held Thursday (October 29, 2015) at the VIP Hotel in Cagayan de Oro City. According to Rosanna Tuason-Fores, TCP president, the organization is the private sector consultative body created by Republic Act 9593 (Tourism Act of 2009) and mandated to assist government in the development, implementation, and coordination of Philippine tourism policy. “It is composed of duly accredited tourism enterprises covering the accommodation, travel and tours, meetings, conventions, exhibitions and events services and facilities sectors, tourism and estate development, management services and

Flooding is the perennial problem of this city and through this project,it will sooner resolved and ceased the worries of these 8 villages and it became sooner a potential site to attract tourists,Mayor Tan added. According to Gubat that the construction of irrigation facilities started in 2005 where a pre-construction activities such as earth filling started in year 1996 until 2014 while the reservoir dam started in 2009 and

He added that out of the 8 villages that surround the project ,there are 662 farmer beneficiaries that will be benefited and because of this dam, In a NIA 10 statistics,it shows that there are about 5,232 Metric Tons of Rice annual production that valued about Php88.9 Million per year derived at Php17.00 per kilo prevailing price of Palay.

other accredited tourism enterprises,” she added. Maria Rica C. Bueno, director of the office of tourism standards and regulations of the Department of Tourism (DOT), said the issue has already been referred to the DOT by the Philippine Hotel Owners Association, Inc. (PHOA). “At this point in time we don’t have a policy or a program yet, on how to address Airbnb,” Bueno said. “While we are in the process of processing and developing accommodation standards, we will get insights from the industry and our consultants on how we will address this issue. They are already here and most of them are condominiums.” Previously known as The Philippine Hotel Federation Inc., the PHOA’s primary objective is to bring together those in the accommodation industry (hotels, resorts, tourist inns, pension houses, and serviced apartments), and organize them to protect and promote their common interest and concerns. Arturo P. Boncato Jr., DOT assistant secretary for Mindanao, said the present thinking here and abroad is leaning towards regulating listed host establishments in Airbnb and similar online booking websites. “The local government of Quebec, Canada has filed a bill requiring all Airbnb establishments to pay the exact same taxes as regular hotels. This has already also been experienced in many parts of the world and I believe that should be the direction in dealing this new way of booking and travel which is similar to Uber itself in terms of getting their franchises paid and taxes, etc.,” Boncato said. Cynthia R. Mamon, TCP trustee, said the hotel industry is apprehensive of Airbnb hosted establishments because they are not accredited with the DOT and have no standards to comply with when dealing with guests and accommodations. “One bag egg, whether accredited or not, will spoil the whole basket,” Mamon

said. “If we cannot police our own ranks, and encourage everyone to register with the DOT, how can we police the foreigners who come here and own our national landscapes and hospitality establishments?” In his column The Hotel Mogel dated October 27, 2015, Larry Mogelonsky, founder, LMA Communications Inc. of Toronto, Canada described how the Canadian province of Quebec filed Bill 67, which would require Airbnb hosts “to comply with the same taxes paid by licensed hotel properties.” Quebec Tourism Minister Dominique Vien said in a press conference that “everyone is going to play on the same rink” and cited the huge amount of tax that would be recouped in provincial coffers that the bill’s passage would impose on Airbnb operators (and their guests as a pass-on expense). “It is inequitable, unsafe and just not fair.” Mogelonsky said: “Hotels go through a literal ton of red tape to obey the rules of the road, and it’s unjust that Airbnb has been able to circumnavigate these stipulations which are in place to first and foremost protect guests from harm.” “These fiercely independent properties are regulated by Quebec law as well as through licenses which cover safety, health and other related matters. These B&B owners also pay commercial property tax, contribute to local tourism contributions (in essence, another tax), and provincial and federal sales taxes. In a nutshell, these are good corporate citizens and true hoteliers, admittedly on a smaller scale than the Fairmont.” “Most of us simply want what Quebec is proposing: The same rules for everyone.” Vien vowed last April 29, 2015 that the province will crack down on rentals through housing brokers such as Airbnb and subject Airbnb hosts and guests to the same rules hotels are subjected to.

in Europe and the US have already legislated similar measures. A 2011 New York State law prohibits renting residential units for less than 29 days, with some exceptions. In May 2013, a New York City judge penalized Airbnb user Nigel Warren with a $2,400 fine. In April 2015, Airbnb asked the state legislature for legalization in return for the collection of hotel taxes. In January 2014, the Federal Court of Germany ruled that a transfer of residence to tourists is not covered by a permission to sublet. In this case, the tenant was previously warned by the landlords. A pending new case centers on the question, even if a termination without notice is possible if no explicit permission from the landlord is obtained. In Airbnb’s home city of San Francisco itself, Airbnb hosting was illegal under most circumstances and Airbnb hosts had been fined by the city and received eviction notices from landlords. This changed in October 2014, when San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee signed a law legalizing short-term rentals in San Francisco.
