comments

Phil Blackwell: We wondered how Indian River would play after being sidelined for the first two weeks. The Warriors responded emphatically to these questions in the second half against FM. Homer picked up a solid Class B victory over VVS, and Baldwinsville beat Liverpool to go 3-0 before what should be quite a scene at Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium on Friday, with the Bees offering the final challenge to the long-held C-NS on the AA class ranks of the zone.

Rocco Carbon: Baldwinsville is coming off a road win at Liverpool using a two-quarter system. The top five Class C teams are all undefeated, allowing one battle to remain No.1. CBA, Central Square and West Genesee are looking to get back on the pitch after the Covid break.

Kate Calloway: There isn’t a lot of movement in the big classes, but there is a ton of change happening on my side of the 8-man B-class! Cazenovia climbed to second place in Class C after catching fire against Solvay. My surprise team of the season so far is Adirondack! The Wildcats got off to a great 2-0 start after beating Onondaga and Westmoreland / Oriskany. With these victories, they not only entered my ranking, but they moved to second place behind Dolgeville.

Jackson Lawrence: Class A continues to be rocked and will continue to do so throughout the season with more and more teams in the wake. It looks like there are about five or six teams that can challenge Indian River at the top. The five teams in my Class C standings are unbeaten, but we all know that won’t last long with many good games to come.

Pat Spadafore: With new teams taking the top spots, the excitement of Section III football continues. A big challenge this week for Cicero-North Syracuse when he visits Baldwinsville on Friday. On Saturday, Morrisville-Eaton welcoming New York Mills and Oneida to Camden should all be interesting.

As an avid reader who spent much of his time with a book in hand, Rick Revelle noticed that there weren’t many books on the Omamiwinni, or the Algonquins, and was inspired to change that. So he began to put pen to paper and created a four-part series called Algonquin Quest.

“I was trying to find something written about who I am because I’m an Algonquin person,” said Revelle, who was born in Smiths Falls and is a member of the Ardoch Algonquin First Nation.

After reading 150 non-fiction books, traveling to many museums and doing research, he created the adventure series.

The book series is made up of four different books. The first, I am Algonquin, was published in 2013.

Two years after the first book came out Algonquin Spring, then Algonquin Sunset in 2017.

After the third installment, Algonquin Legacy was recently released on August 11, 2021.

The books are set along the Ottawa River, on both sides of the St. Lawrence River, near the Great Lakes, and west to the Rocky Mountains during the pre-contact era of the 1300s.

“If you’ve read all the books, you’ll have traveled from Newfoundland to the Rocky Mountains, to the Dakotas and everywhere in between,” Revelle said.

Revelle said the book is based on the real history of the Algonquin people, adding that the places they go to are places one can still travel.

Historical fiction books tell the story of an Algonquin family as they experience war, shelter from the elements, and the constant hunt for food.

“They did what the Rideau Canal would look like in the 1300s,” Revelle said, “then they went west through Grenville, and the buffalo hunt is in that area between Gananoque and where the Ottawa river goes down.

Revelle said there were buffaloes in the Lower Great Lakes region during the pre-contact era, but they were eradicated after contact.

The books have been used in classrooms across Canada; and they are intended for people 12 years of age and older, but have also been popular among adults.

The first book, Je suis algonquin, is in its sixth edition since its publication.

Since the release of Algonquin Quest, Revelle has taken the opportunity to speak to children of all ages about Indigenous peoples from Kindergarten to Grade 12.

“My books are used extensively in three school boards in Canada that I know of,” Revelle said. He has visited schools from Manitoba to across Ontario and his books have been used in some Native studies courses.

He has read and taught the history of his people at the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic School Board and the Limestone District School Board, and has visited the Upper Canada District School Board, but many other school boards use his books, including the Frontier school division in Manitoba where Revelle has been twice.

In addition to the books, he brings with him a native tickle trunk and a native tickle bag to showcase different parts of pre-contact history, such as replica period weapons and furs.

“My presentations are sensory because I convey everything to the students and they can touch the furs,” Revelle said.

For the younger ones, from Kindergarten to Grade 5, he chooses not to read to them because the book is about violence.

He said he taught them how people made a living from the land and looked after the land, how indigenous peoples traded fur for other goods or weapons.

Algonquin Quest explores across Canada and features Indigenous languages ​​in the vernacular, with words from the Algonquin, Anishinaabe, Blackfoot, Cheyenne, Cree, Huron, Lakota, Mi’kmaq and Mohawk languages.

A phonetic glossary at the end serves as a guide for further learning, Revelle said.

He currently has five next lessons in school with the Limestone District School Board in October, but currently has no plans for the Upper Canada District School Board.

On a sunny morning in West Vancouver, a dozen people of all ages stand on a street corner waving large orange election signs with documentary filmmaker and climate activist Avi Lewis’ name written in big white letters, while cars and buses honk as they drive by.

Lewis and his supporters are making one of their latest efforts to withdraw from voting for the NDP in one of the wealthiest ridings in the country, where NDP advocacy to tax the ultra-rich is a hard sell.

The NDP has never had a seat in the Liberal-owned West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country, where incumbent Patrick Weiler is running for re-election, John Weston is the Conservative candidate and Mike Simpson is the Greens.

But Lewis, who has chosen to campaign here, is not discouraged, even though pundits and senior officials in his party don’t expect him to win.

“They say we can’t win this riding,” Lewis told supporters Wednesday.

“How did you find him in West Vancouver? It’s amazing!”

“Shake up the entire political establishment”

Lewis’s campaign is focused on tackling the climate emergency as a way to deal with other crises, such as overdoses and lack of affordable housing.

After a summer of heat domes and wildfires that burned down the town of Lytton, B.C., Lewis said his climate policies resonated with his constituents.

Her plan is backed by power stars, from actress and climate activist Jane Fonda to environmentalist David Suzuki.

“We need to send Avi to Ottawa to shake up the entire political establishment, including his own party,” Suzuki said in a video advertisement for Lewis’ campaign posted on Twitter.

Lewis calls his pitch a Green New Deal – a slogan NDP leader Jagmeet Singh has said he supports but is missing from his federal campaign message.

Singh is also not planning to visit Lewis’ constituency, although he will be spending his last day campaigning in British Columbia.

“For the New Democrats, our vision is exactly that [a Green New Deal]”Singh said in a recent interview with CBC News.

“I am the leader of the party and I want to state my vision… I will invest in good jobs that reduce emissions.”

There is speculation among New Democrats about Lewis’ endgame and whether that implies leadership ambitions. Lewis is the grandson of former federal NDP leader David Lewis and the son of former NDP leader and Ontario diplomat Stephen Lewis.

Committed to campaigning again

In his interview with CBC News, Lewis didn’t rule out leadership ambitions, but only said he was focused on winning his seat right now.

“I have made a commitment that if I don’t make it on Monday, I will continue to campaign tirelessly because I have been here for at least two cycles,” Lewis said.

“We are in an uphill battle to pull off an upheaval of epic proportions. I think it is enough for me to personally take it on.”

There is usually a two-way race in West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country between the Liberals and the Tories.

But if he unites the green-left vote, Lewis said, he believes he can make it to Ottawa.

Lewis says his message resonated after a summer of intense heat and wildfires. (Eventbrite)

He is banking on the 2019 electoral calculations, in which the combined Green-NPD vote would have beaten the Liberals.

Before a Green New Deal, Lewis put forward a similar proposal called the Leap Manifesto, which was passed at the NDP convention in Edmonton in 2016.

Lewis called this a sign of the party base’s willingness to turn more aggressively to the perception of climate change as an emergency.

Lewis has been accused of creating divisions within the NDP by presenting the Leap Manifesto, but he said it was overkill.

“The explosion around the Leap Manifesto in 2016 was confused with a lot of other things that were going on. An NDP government in Alberta that embraced fossil fuels, the departure of [former NDP leader] Tom Mulcair, ”Lewis said.

“But we are here now. We have an offer, which is reaching the vast majority of voters and I think our prospects are huge.”

Lewis said he sees no division within the NDP and does not think his message is different from that of the party, even though his campaign is singularly focused on climate change.

“We need a huge change, so yes, I am deeply impatient,” he said.

“The whole political system is failing to cope with the level of urgency that we have and to seize the level of opportunity in housing, health and public transport and all related systems that need to be changed. . “

Other candidates from the constituency:

  • Doug Bebb for the People’s Party of Canada.
  • Terry Grimwood as an independent.
  • Gordon Jeffrey for the Rhinoceros party.
  • Chris MacGregor as an independent.

A Vancouver street preacher was given a 12-month conditional discharge on Friday after pleading guilty to assault causing bodily harm.

Dorre Love was charged in October last year following a physical altercation that took place on August 22, 2020 in Vancouver’s West End.

Love and another man were preaching on a loudspeaker outside Starbucks on Davie Street and Thurlow Street, when Justin Morissette, who lived nearby, approached the preacher and told him he was causing a nuisance.

The incident, captured on video, showed Morissette yelling at the preacher.

In the video, which was presented as evidence by crown attorney and released during Friday’s sentencing hearing, Morissette is seen telling Love to “shut up the whore” and “turn down the whore. “.

He then grabbed Love’s microphone, which led to the physical altercation that ended with Morissette suffering from a badly broken leg.

Morissette said he spent 27 days at St. Paul’s Hospital, where he underwent surgery to restore the bones in his leg. Since then, he has taken physiotherapy and rehabilitation courses.

Love has been ordered to refrain from posting or disseminating anything on social media in connection with the August 22 incident. She has also been told to stay away from certain areas of Vancouver’s West End, including Beach Avenue, Denman Street, English Bay and Sunset Beach.

Love will also be required to complete community service by September 8, 2022, and he is not allowed to own an electronic speaker during his 12-month parole.

A Vancouver Provincial Court judge on Friday said Morissette was hostile and played a role in triggering the physical altercation, after pushing Love in the chest.

According to Morissette, the preacher and his ministry, Ministry of the Word, were spreading anti-gay hate speech. Morissette sued the city and police earlier this year for letting Love continue her behavior.

However, the judge ruled on Friday that the video showed no bias, prejudice or hateful comments towards any specific minority group.

Visibly moved, Morissette went to court, saying the incident destroyed her leg and her career as a Sportsnet 650 broadcaster. Morissette now has a metal plate on her knee and has difficulty walking.

He added that he was suffering from trauma caused by the incident, which the judge admitted.

Crown attorney recommended Love an 18-month suspended sentence, but the judge said there was no evidence Love caused Morissette to break her leg.

The judge added that because the 43-year-old preacher had no criminal record, pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily harm and felt remorse in court, he would instead be sentenced to a conditional discharge of 12 month.

Love, who moved to Ontario in July and returned to Vancouver for the hearing, appeared before the judge and admitted he should have handled the confrontation differently, and said he had learned his lesson.

The judge determined that August 22, 2020 was an “unfortunate” turn of events, but that Love had the right to be on the streets, to preach his sermon. The judge added that Morissette was not allowed to forcibly remove Love’s microphone.

WHEELING – If chilly September mornings spark a sudden urge to wander the local hills – whether hunting or hiking – keep in mind that the state’s slogan “wild and wonderful” is more than white-tailed deer.

“The northern enclave is much more developed than it was then (the border era), but certainly the namesake fits,” said Steve Rauch, wildlife biologist district for the State Natural Resources Division.

There are black bears in the woods – more often than not, at least as far north, a single young male looking for territory of his own, Rauch said. There is also the occasional bobcat or orange-red flash that suggests the presence of a fox. Not to mention a bunch of little things – weasels and wood jumping mice, possums and muskrats.

One thing those who wander the woods of the region likely won’t see, however, is a mountain lion, Rauch said.

The eastern mountain lions, once native to the state, are extinct. And, while their Western counterparts are moving vaguely in that direction, there is no verifiable evidence that they are in West Virginia. None have been spotted on the state’s multitude of surveillance cameras, for example, sported by dogs or hit by a car, he said.

Not that wildlife enthusiasts wouldn’t like there to be some, he noted. “Routinely people call and say, ‘I saw a mountain puma,’ Rauch said.

Often, he explained, what they actually saw was a much smaller native wildcat or bobcat, a short-tailed species that weighs around 25 pounds compared to the potential weight of over 150 pounds. ‘a male mountain lion. .

Other times there is a hoax involved in such reports. Pictures of cougars sent to West Virginia’s DNR, for example, usually involve a location other than the Mountain State, he said. “I have yet to see a photo that claimed to be in West Virginia, I have not seen the same photo (taken elsewhere) on the internet.”

That said, there is always the possibility of a single Western puma (or puma) with an exceptional desire to roam, Rauch noted. Such things have happened. A western cat DNA linked to a wild population in South Dakota traveled more than 1,500 miles before being run over on a Connecticut highway in 2011, according to news reports.

Or, perhaps more likely, someone could deliberately (and illegally) release such an animal into the wild here.

Even considering such lone cat possibilities, Rauch noted that mountain lions are unlikely to make a significant return anywhere in the eastern region of the United States. The human population is just too high, he said.

WHAT’S THE MATTER

If pumas aren’t out there in the wild forests of West Virginia, what are they? Rauch said one place to start answering this question is another question – what was it?

When West Virginia was new to humans, there were plenty of large mammals roaming the woods in addition to a myriad of smaller species. This included mild-mannered animals such as eastern elk and wood bison in addition to white-tailed deer which remains so abundant that many current residents have likely spotted one in their front yards, he said. he declares.

The elk went extinct, Rauch said, due to habitat loss and market-level hunting for meat. Wood bison have been driven by human settlement into wilder areas. These animals, slightly smaller than the wild bison that once roamed the Great Plains, remain in Canada.

And, to some extent, he noted, in the memory of the Mountain State. Rauch said there is an old bison grazing area near Grafton that is still called Buffalo Flat. “Some of the roads in West Virginia are where the buffalo tracks once were,” he added.

The elk story took a different turn a few years ago when the state reintroduced a subspecies, the Rocky Mountain elk, to areas with low human populations south of Charleston, Rauch said.

These elk are mostly seen as photo opportunities at the moment, but Rauch said the herd may one day be large enough to allow the hunt. The state has also been successful in reintroducing river otters, beavers and fishermen. (Check wvdnr.gov for updates on these and other animals.)

A non-native mammal, the European boar, has also been introduced by the state to heavily mined areas of southwest West Virginia. This reluctant species to move is now established to the point that wild boars are being hunted.

ON THE LOOKOUT

The early days of West Virginia also saw a handful of large predators – some of whom remain.

The Eastern Mountain Lion and Eastern Wood Wolf are long gone, but Rauch said the coyotes and what has almost always been a small population of black bears are here. (Grizzly bears have never lived this far east).

In Marshall County and parts of the south, there are confirmed sightings of sows (female bears) and calves, Rauch said. From Ohio County to the north, most of the confirmed sightings were of male bears.

Rauch explained that male black bears leave their mothers at age 2 to search for their own territories. Since a single man needs 20-30 square miles to be comfortable, developed areas such as those around Wheeling are not ideal.

“It’s usually just a single man who comes in,” he said, noting that the DNR does not want a bear to settle near a town, where interaction and conflict with humans are inevitable. Because of this, the bear hunting season is longer in the northern enclave than in other parts of the state, he said.

While the attractiveness of large mammals is understandable, Rauch noted that hunters and hikers should keep their distance, especially in the case of bears.

“There is a saying, ‘a fed bear is a dead bear,’” Rauch said. “That’s right. Once people feed them they get used to us and they can be a huge nuisance. Keep them wild.

Canada’s tough canola harvest drives up prices for Australian farmers https://davidthompsonthings.com/canadas-tough-canola-harvest-drives-up-prices-for-australian-farmers/ https://davidthompsonthings.com/canadas-tough-canola-harvest-drives-up-prices-for-australian-farmers/#respond Sat, 18 Sep 2021 00:42:23 +0000 https://davidthompsonthings.com/canadas-tough-canola-harvest-drives-up-prices-for-australian-farmers/ Australian canola prices have been historically high this year and have increased further this week.

Australian canola prices have been historically high this year and have increased further this week.

The reason was Canada.

Canada is the world’s largest producer and exporter of canola, but drought and record temperatures have devastated this year’s crop.

According to Statistics Canada’s latest crop forecast, production is down to 12.8 million tonnes, down 34% from last year, and is believed to be the smallest canola crop in Canada since 2010.

Speaking to ABC Landline during the harvest in Saskatchewan, Danielle Wildfong said it has been a tough year for growers.

“Part of Saskatchewan was a third [of their normal production] and some places get three bushels per acre, which is next to nothing, ”she said.

“It was probably one of the hottest summers I have had.”

The reduction in Canada’s crop forecast had an immediate effect on the market this week, with ICE canola futures prices rising 4 percent to around A $ 950 per tonne.

It has also boosted the Australian market, with canola now selling for over $ 900 a tonne in Western Australia and parts of eastern Australia.

Ms Wildfong said high prices in Canada have softened the blow for some.

“It has been difficult for some of our farmers in the south, but we are optimistic that we will get this harvest and we will have a better year next year,” she said.

An opportunity presents itself for Australia

James Foulsham, a Western Australian-based grain trader with Australian Asian Agricultural Exports, said Australian canola will fill some of the gaps left by the Canadian supply shortage.

“It’s an unfortunate situation for Canada, but it’s a happy story for Australia, especially since [the] canola price this year, ”he said.

“For the foreseeable future, prices will remain relatively high until Canada comes back on line and the market is convinced that the same will not happen again.”

Mr Foulsham said that while Australian canola may find its way into new markets, it was mainly about increased market share that would benefit Australian farmers this season.

Space to play or pause, M to mute, left and right arrows to search, up and down arrows for volume.

Australian farmers on track for record season

“Or [countries] bought Canadian canola before, they will replace it with more Australian canola, ”he said.

“You might see new markets popping up here and there – like Pakistan and Nepal – [and] they will probably take more Australians. “

Mr Foulsham said he also expected prices for other grains such as wheat, oats and barley to rise as the Canadian harvest progresses.

Frost wipes out $ 250 million from WA’s crop, according to GIWA

All the ducks are lining up for a large and very valuable canola crop in Australia, but there is still a long way to go and there have already been problems.

According to the latest update from the Grain Industry Association of WA (GIWA), severe frosts earlier this month wiped out around 700,000 tonnes of WA’s estimated winter harvest, valued at $ 250 million.

“The worst of the fields is coming out very clearly now and some growers are saying they have well over 50 percent loss of potential,” said Michael Lamond, author of the GIWA Crop Report.

“Canola tonnage will always exceed two million tonnes, which is definitely a record for WA. Much of the canola was not as affected as the wheat.

“So canola is probably the flagship product; it’s still worth a few bucks a ton and it’s got a lot of tons around, so it’s definitely a bright light. “

Cryptocurrency Trading and Canadian Tax Filing Confusion https://davidthompsonthings.com/cryptocurrency-trading-and-canadian-tax-filing-confusion/ https://davidthompsonthings.com/cryptocurrency-trading-and-canadian-tax-filing-confusion/#respond Fri, 17 Sep 2021 11:19:17 +0000 https://davidthompsonthings.com/cryptocurrency-trading-and-canadian-tax-filing-confusion/ Trading profits made by selling crypto assets result in half of the gains being taxed in Canada.

Trading profits made by selling crypto assets result in half of the gains being taxed in Canada. While the potential for big returns attracts Canadians to the cryptocurrency market, with the cash comes a hefty and most importantly unexpected tax bill.

Mehran Sedigh, a Toronto-based cryptocurrency tax expert, says many clients have been audited by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) for misrepresentation.

Sedigh notes that customers find it difficult to calculate their gains and losses. The CRA considers cryptocurrency products like the Income Tax Act, and income from crypto transactions is treated either as capital gains or as business income.

Sedigh says this categorization leaves most of its clients confused – to qualify as business income, filers must continue their day-to-day operations in a commercially profitable manner. And if you report capital gains, selling a crypto asset will result in taxing half of the profits.

In addition to the two business scenarios above, taxation may also apply when cryptos are traded for goods or services. In such situations, the CRA considers that a barter trade has taken place. The market value of the asset is taken into account in taxation.

“Anytime you get rid of a specific type of cryptocurrency, it is considered a taxable event. It is taxed on the amount of the cryptocurrency’s value, from the time you buy it until the time you get rid of it.

However, crypto investors in the United States have found a creative way to use tax laws to their advantage. This process includes wash trading where the investor locks in losses and offsets future gains.
