Hazardous blockade of fallen trees on Morice West Forest Service Road in Houston

first_imgThe order does not apply to a metal gate on the west side of a bridge outside the Unist’ot’en camp unless it is used to prevent or impede the workers’ access.Hereditary chiefs negotiated last year with RCMP for the gate to remain outside the camp, which is home to some members of one of the First Nation’s 13 house groups, so long as it would not be used to prevent workers from accessing the worksite.Fourteen people were arrested by armed officers at a checkpoint constructed along the road leading to both the Unist’ot’en camp and the Coastal GasLink work site on Jan. 7, 2019.The company has signed agreements with all 20 elected First Nation councils along the 670-kilometre pipeline route, but the five Wet’suwet’en hereditary clan chiefs say no one can access the land without their consent.The pipeline is part of the $40-billion LNG Canada project that will export Canadian natural gas to Asian markets.Advertisement HOUSTON, B.C. – RCMP frontline officers working from the Community-Industry Safety Office are continuing to conduct patrols along the Morice West Forest Service Road to ensure the safety of individuals at the Healing Centre, Coastal GasLink employees, and general public travelling along the corridor.According to RCMP, on January 6, officers attended the 39.5-kilometre mark and were stopped by a blockade of fallen trees.Officers conducted foot patrols towards the 44-kilometre mark and noted several dozen trees had been felled or partially cut, ready to be felled, across the roadway.- Advertisement -Along with felled trees, RCMP also found three stacks of tires along with flammables.RCMP say they are impartial in this dispute and their priority is to facilitate a dialogue between the various stakeholders involved, with hopes that these efforts will result in a resolution.The B.C. Supreme Court granted an injunction to Coastal GasLink on Dec. 31. The order stamped Tuesday provides details of the court injunction.Advertisement Previous injunction and enforcement orders remained in effect until the new order was issued, Coastal GasLink spokeswoman Suzanne Wilton said.Obstructing access was already prohibited under the previous orders and they also included enforcement provisions.“We continue to believe that dialogue is preferable to confrontation while engagement and a negotiated resolution remain possible,” Wilton said in an email.The company declined an interview request.Advertisementcenter_img Coastal GasLink shared photos Tuesday of what it says are more than 100 trees that have been felled across the logging road.At a press conference Tuesday, hereditary chief Na’moks called for construction to cease and for the B.C. government to revoke the company’s permits.last_img read more

Raja end 15-yr wait for CAF title despite defeat

first_img0Shares0000Spaniard Juan Carlos Garrido made history Sunday by becoming the first coach to win the CAF Confederation Cup with two clubs © AFP / ISSOUF SANOGOJOHANNESBURG, South Africa, Dec 3 – Moroccan club Raja Casablanca ended a 15-year wait for an African trophy by winning the CAF Confederation Cup in the Democratic Republic of Congo Sunday despite a 3-1 second-leg loss to V Club.Raja, who won the last edition of the CAF Cup in 2003, beat V Club 3-0 in the first leg in Casablanca last Sunday and triumphed 4-3 on aggregate in the two-leg title decider. It was the sixth CAF title for the Moroccans, who have also won the Champions League three times and the Super Cup once.Abdelilah Hafidi put Raja ahead after 21 minutes on a synthetic pitch saturated by pre-match rain at the 80,000-seat Stade des Martyrs in Kinshasa.The goal left V Club, whose only CAF title came 45 years ago, needing to score five to win the second-tier African club competition.Jean-Marc Makusu, who started after recovering from a first-leg injury, levelled on the night by slamming a free-kick high into the net during first-half stoppage time.Raja appeared to be cruising toward overall victory until the Congolese scored twice within three minutes midway through the second half.Substitute Mukoko Batezadio fired into the net after a goalmouth scramble on 71 minutes and Fabrice Ngoma converted a cross soon after to raise hopes of a sensational comeback.But Raja stood firm and there were no further clearcut scoring chances for the Congolese, leaving them with an unwanted record of losing three of four CAF finals they reached.Spain-born Raja handler Juan Carlos Garrido became the first coach to win the African equivalent of the UEFA Europa League with two clubs.He guided Al Ahly of Egypt to a dramatic victory in the 2014 final with the decisive goal against Sewe San Pedro of the Ivory Coast coming after 96 minutes in Cairo.Victory for Raja also confirmed the dominance of north African clubs in the Confederation Cup, which replaced the African Cup Winners Cup and CAF Cup competitions in 2004.They are the fourth Moroccan club to lift the trophy after FAR Rabat (2005), FUS Rabat (2010) and Moghreb Fes (2011) and the 10th north African winners in 15 finals.V Club, who won at home and drew away against Raja in the group stage, had hoped to emulate compatriots and arch domestic rivals TP Mazembe, winners of the 2016 and 2017 finals.However, the odds were stacked against them as only Mouloudia Alger of Algeria had overcome a three-goal first-leg deficit in 108 previous home-and-away CAF club finals.Raja will start defending the title on December 16 with a round-of-32 home fixture in the 2018/2019 edition against Silver Strikers of Malawi or Cercle Mberi Sportif of Gabon.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

NOW ARDARA MAKES LAST FIVE IN TOP PLACES TO LIVE IN IRELAND COMPETITION

first_imgThe judges of The Irish Times Best Place to Live in Ireland competition have narrowed their search to just five places which are in the running for the overall award – including Ardara.They include one village, one small town, one large town, one city, and one suburb or urban village.Ardara had originally been in the top 25 of places to live in Ireland before it was joined by Westport, Co Mayo; Killarney, Co Kerry; Cork city; and Rathmines in Dublin in the top five. These five will be visited by the judges over the coming week, and the overall winner will be announced next Monday, June 25th.Needless to say the people of Ardara will be out in force this morning putting their best foot forward – and rightly so!For the Best Place to Live in Ireland competition, The Irish Times invited people to nominate the place they lived in, and explain its appeal. All kinds of habitats were eligible: “a town or city suburb, a village or remote rural spot, a tiny community halfway up a mountain, a street, a road or a housing estate”.From early April until late May, the competition attracted 563 entries from members of the public across 32 counties. The winning place will receive a location-appropriate plaque or sign noting the accolade.It will also be profiled in the paper and will be the subject of a short film commissioned by The Irish Times. NOW ARDARA MAKES LAST FIVE IN TOP PLACES TO LIVE IN IRELAND COMPETITION was last modified: June 18th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ArdaraBest PLaces to LIve In IrelandIrish TimesTop Fivelast_img read more

DONEGAL LADIES BOOK ULSTER SEMI SPOT WITH ONE OF BIGGEST SCORES EVER!

first_imgIt’s a scoreline that you’ll have to do a double-take on.And with complete respect to the ladies footballers of Down, it’s difficult to figure out where Donegal found the time to build such a score.But today at Brewster Park, Donegal managed to put a incredible 10-35 on the board against Down’s 0-4.Donegal’s Yvonne McMonagle scored what must be some sort of record when she scored no less than SIX of those goals.You could say the game was over as a contest at half-time as Donegal led 7-17 to 0-3.They’ll play Tyrone in the next game and the chances of a similar scoreline must be pretty slim.DONEGAL LADIES BOOK ULSTER SEMI SPOT WITH ONE OF BIGGEST SCORES EVER! was last modified: June 20th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalDownGAALadieslast_img read more
