School Funding Cuts

first_imgCullen Crozier, aptn National NewsA successful alternative school program in the town of Fort Smith in the Northwest Territories is on the verge of closing because of funding cuts by the Territorial government.It’s called the Pheonix program and it helps students who have slipped through cracks in the education system. This has put many students who are benefitting from the program at risk of losing everything they have worked so hard for.The program caters to students who have had trouble fitting into the regular school system. Heather Villeneuve is an administrator at the Pheonix program at the school.“The majority of students work very very well in a regular high school setting. But there are those intelligent young people who need to get their education and be successful in life who need a different way of school. A lot of very deserving people who are ready to be educated but on different terms. This program is meeting their needs.”Catherine Benwell is a single mother who is just a few courses away from receiving her diploma. She says that the program has been instrumental in her academic achievements.“it’s very hard because a child needs a lot of attention and there isn’t a lot of childcare in this town and what not and so you have to balance it out and with this program it helps a lot.”In the last three years the program has helped nearly 30 students receive their high school diplomas, 90% of which are aboriginal students.But the program is still threatened by cuts. Starting next semester the government of the Northwest Territories will cut funding to the Pheonix school from $660,000 to an estimated $440,000. Villenuve says people are working hard because they don’t know what is going to become of the program.“people are scrambling now just trying to get as many credits as they can in before we close and it’s just really disheartening.”Villeneuve says the program will have to run during regular school hours to help save money. But they say that will stop the program in it’s tracks.Jason Lepine is with the District Education Authority.“in this day and age when we would like everybody to succeed the last thing we should be doing is throwing obstacles in the way of success that’s not to say that we are not capable of working or collaborating with the government to ensure success of the phoenix program it’s just that it’s very discouraging to have those reductions.”Other students:As for Catherine Benwell and the other 24 students set to graduate this year, the worry is that other students in their position won’t get the same opportunity to succeed.“I was very disappointed because from people thinking that this is going to be going on for a long time then just cutting it off all of a sudden and changing their life plans type of thing I felt very disappointed.”The government of the Northwest Territories is set to release it’s budtget next month.The community of Fort Smith is now rallying to keep the program alive.So far, the government has been unavailable to comment on the cuts.last_img read more

Chinas ambassador to Canada hopes for achievements during NAFTA talks

first_imgHALIFAX – China’s ambassador to Canada says his country hopes the U.S., Canada and Mexico can “make achievements” in ongoing NAFTA talks.Speaking to reporters after meeting with Nova Scotia’s cabinet, Ambassador Lu Shaye said that China has taken “close notice” of North American Free Trade Agreement negotiations.“NAFTA is very effective to regulate the trade relations between these three countries,” Lu said through a translator.He sidestepped a question about what China was learning about U.S. President Donald Trump’s trade approach through the NAFTA talks, saying his country will always seek multilateral trade, “No matter what kind of trade policy the U.S. government adopts.Still, he said his country recognizes free trade is under a growing threat: “While China will follow this ideology to develop friendly relationships with all the countries in the world, protectionism is rising in some parts of the world.”Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government has been seeking deeper trade relations with China despite suggestions the initiative could risk upsetting the Trump administration during the NAFTA renegotiations.Others have also warned about potentially rejecting a $1.5-billion bid by Chinese state-owned company CCCC International Holding Ltd. to take over Canada’s Aecon Group Inc. construction firm.They say rejecting the deal on security grounds would anger China.Lu was asked Tuesday whether such a move would jeopardize potential trade talks between the two countries.“We will respect any decision made by the Canadian government in this regard (Aecon),” he said.The discussions with Premier Stephen McNeil focused on areas such as seafood, education, tourism, and energy, as well as the recent friendship agreements between Nova Scotia and the Chinese provinces of Shandong and Guangdong.Lu made note that McNeil also made it known that he would like to see a direct air link between China and Halifax. The ambassador said that he would work to “promote and make it happen.”McNeil said getting direct air access would help build the momentum the province has been building in getting its own access to Chinese markets.“When I was in China the last two times I met with different airlines,” he said. “We have a number that would be looking at it and we hope Air Canada does as well.”He said the preferred entry point from the province’s perspective would be Guangdong province, where “they consume an awful lot of our seafood product.”China is Nova Scotia’s second largest trading partner after the U.S. According to the province, total exports jumped to $495 million in 2016, an increase of 17 per cent from 2015.Seafood exports alone were valued at $255 million.McNeil was asked how important a formalized free trade deal with China would be for his province.“We’re a trading province. We’re not waiting for a formalized one (deal), we are going in and making a commitment, but the Prime Minister obviously is working hard to achieve that for the country.”last_img read more

Jet crisis: Govt says it will not meddle in commercial issues

first_imgNew Delhi/ Mumbai: Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu Wednesday ruled out any interference in efforts to help cash-strapped Jet Airways, saying that the government should not be seen to be doing any kind of deals to help an airline. Against the backdrop of lenders set to take control of Jet Airways under a debt resolution plan, he said banks are direct stakeholders and are dealing with commercial matters of the airline where the ministry would not like to intervene.Prabhu said, “The ministry should not be dealing in any commercial transactions of any kind. Same thing I did for railways or for anywhere else. The issue is between banks and the management”. He was responding to a query about the case of the now defunct Kingfisher Airlines where banks apparently did not intervene. Days after Jet Airways’ board approved a debt resolution plan, wherein the lenders led by SBI would take control of the airline, embattled liquor baron Vijay Mallya had lashed out at public sector banks for “double standards” under the current NDA regime for their intervention to bailout Jet Airways while the same lenders made his Kingfisher airlines “fail ruthlessly”. Mallya was the founder of Kingfisher Airlines. In response to queries related to Jet Airways crisis, Prabhu said the ministry should not be seen to be doing any deals of any kind that would help in any way. “It is always possible. You can help a company by bringing the other down,” he said. “We should not be seeing to be doing anything which would be construed or seen or actually resulting in either favouritism or doing something wrong against somebody. We did not do that,” the minister said. However, Prabhu said the ministry would be looking at the safety aspects. When asked if the government played any role in state-run banks taking over Jet Airways, the minister said, “What role have we got? That is exactly the point. That is what Jet Airways was trying to come with us. We said we will not play any role into this”. To another query on whether the ministry would have been perfectly fine and remained a neutral observer had the Jet Airways gone under, Prabhu replied, “That is banks’ call. There is a law which says that any company which could not service the liability – how to deal with that”. “Our role is very clear. And that is what I have personally done actually. It is not to interfere into any commercial matter of any airline,” he emphasised. About recent meetings between the ministry officials and Jet Airways’ executives, Prabhu said the meetings are taking place because “we are dealing with safety”. “There is a direct issue of safety of Jet Airways, or for that matter, any other airline,” he said. “Safety is ensured because we are telling banks that if you are taking over as management, then ensure that the safety is assured, and give enough funds for the safety,” he added. Prabhu said his job as an aviation minister is to come with the policy, ensuring that policy allows the growth and it allows to deal with the situation of this kind. “My policy should be robust enough to take care of situations like this… Earlier, many times, the government would be tempted to be interventionist… We are very clear that managing the airline is the responsibility of the respective board and the airline company,” he said. Meanwhile, Jet Airways on Wednesday deferred the March salary payment to its employees, citing “complexities” involved in the finalisation of the debt-recast plan, under which the SBI-led consortium of lenders has taken over the management control of the airline. Earlier, the airline had been delaying the salaries of its pilots, engineers and senior staff since August who have not been paid since January.last_img read more
