Visits to Canadas national parks and historic sites jump this year

first_img Share Tags: Canada Wednesday, August 23, 2017 Visits to Canada’s national parks and historic sites jump this year By: Mia RabsonSource: The Canadian Press OTTAWA — The federal government will consider what to do with admission fees for national parks beyond Canada’s 150th birthday after this year’s free parks program has proven to be exceptionally popular.After Ottawa decided to eliminate fees for national parks and historic sites for all of 2017, Parks Canada says preliminary estimates show more than 14 million visits between January 1 and July 31.That’s an increase of 1.5 million over the same period in 2016, or a 12 per cent jump.The numbers are for 39 national parks and 82 national historic sites which report attendance numbers. Some parks and sites are currently closed, are brand new or do not report visitor statistics.While parks attendance has been rising over recent years, the spike this year was double what was seen during the same period the year before and business owners near some of the parks say the free admission is behind it.“When I talk to a lot of the customers they’re down here for the Canada 150 celebrations,” said Mike Makhlouf, co-owner of Freddy’s restaurant near Point Pelee National Park in southwestern Ontario.Point Pelee, billed as the southernmost point of Canada and a bird watcher’s paradise, saw the biggest absolute increase in visitors this year, with 130,000 more people passing through the gates. To the end of July, visitors to the park were up 66 per cent and in July alone visitor numbers were up 90 per cent.More news:  Virgin Voyages de-activates Quebec accounts at FirstMates agent portalMakhlouf said the people started coming in May and haven’t stopped.“This is the first time I’ve heard of the park closing the gates because there were too many people inside,” he said. “I know it’s happened more than once (this year.)Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said she is thrilled with the visitor numbers so far, and believes when the year is over the government needs to take a look at what the impact was on the local communities and what should be done with the admission fees going forward.“I think it’s a good time to take a step back and actually look at the broader economic case for national parks and historic sites but certainly no decision has been made to extend it,” she told The Canadian Press in an interview.The government already planned to eliminate admission fees for anyone under 18 after this year.The 2016 federal budget set aside $65.4 million to replace lost revenues from the gate fees in 2017. Another $4.7 million was invested to meet anticipated increases in visitors and $5.7 million to produce, order and distribute the free Discovery Pass given to people so they can get into the parks for free.Joel Reardon, Parks Canada’s Canada 150 spokesman, said 3.7 million discovery passes were ordered online thus far. About 150,000 people have downloaded the Parks Canada app.More news:  Apply now for AQSC’s agent cruise ratesReardon said the parks and historic sites are seeing “record visitation” but it has been manageable with the additional planning and staff hired to keep things on track.Kathleen Yetman, owner of Birdie’s Perch restaurant and the Point Pelee Trading Post said business this year has just been “fantastic.”“It’s surpassed my expectations,” said Yetman, who has owned the seasonal restaurant since 2012.Both Yetman and Makhlouf would be thrilled if Ottawa extended the free passes beyond 2017.So would Heath MacDonald, P.E.I.’s minister of economic development and tourism. Prince Edward Island National Park saw attendance jump by 37 per cent, or more than 101,000 people so far this year and the park saw an increase of 54 per cent in July alone.“We’re seeing a tremendous amount of traffic inside the national park,” said MacDonald. “I would love to see the federal government extend this at least for another year.”The increase in visitors has not been uniform. The top 10 busiest national parks account for 75 per cent of visitors to all parks and were responsible for 66 per cent of the increase in traffic. Seven parks, most of them in remote locations in the North, saw a drop in visitors. << Previous PostNext Post >>last_img read more

Strong support for Costa Rica park ranger sentenced for attempted murder despite

first_imgCosta Rica park ranger Mauricio Steller Fallas — recently sentenced to 12 years in prison for shooting a suspected poacher — reached martyr status this past week in local media and among Costa Rican and international conservationists. Even some lawmakers said the 32-year-old Steller should be pardoned for what appeared to many to be an act of self-defense in a dangerous situation.Then, on Thursday, it came to light that Steller was the subject of a separate investigation for allegedly stealing and selling drugs. Steller’s current lawyer said his client failed to tell him about the investigation, making him question whether to continue representing the park ranger.Nevertheless, support for Steller among his colleagues and fellow conservationists appears to have wavered little. On Friday morning dozens of workers from Costa Rica’s National System of Conservation Areas (SINAC), including Executive Director Julio Jurado, gathered outside SINAC’s main office in San José to protest against Steller’s prison sentence and, in general, against poor working conditions for park rangers.Steller, who worked in the Osa Conservation Area, was convicted of attempted murder for shooting a suspected poacher during a beach patrol in 2009. Park rangers say they are under-equipped and ill-trained to handle situations that could necessitate the use of deadly force.“This wouldn’t have happened if conditions for park rangers were better,” said Fernando Quirós, director of the Cocos Island Conservation Area, who was at the protest.SINAC protestors also pointed out discrepancies in the law that make it difficult for park rangers to legally use force, and regulations that prohibit the government from providing rangers with legal counsel if they face charges stemming from actions carried out on the job. SINAC employees protest in front of the SINAC building in San José demanding better conditions for park rangers, Friday, September 04. Alberto Font/The Tico TimesSteller’s case captured national attention last week as environmental groups took to social media to show their support for the park ranger. Many noted the apparent contradiction between jailing a park ranger who was attempting to stop poaching and releasing the suspected killers of sea turtle conservationist Jairo Mora after a badly botched investigation and trial.The Environment Ministry even helped contract respected criminal attorney Juan Diego Castro to represent Steller pro bono for his appeal.But Castro said Thursday that he was reconsidering representing the park ranger after his client allegedly failed to tell him that he was the subject of a separate drug investigation potentially related to a triple murder in 2012. Steller’s father was one of the victims.According to the Osa Prosecutor’s Office, Steller is under investigation for the possession and sale of eight kilos of cocaine that he allegedly found floating near Caño Island, off the coast of the Osa Peninsula, during a ranger patrol in 2012. Prosecutors allege that Steller gave the cocaine to his father, Rodrigo Steller, to sell. During a supposed drug deal Steller’s father and two other men were murdered.Steller told The Tico Times he is innocent of the charges. Meanwhile, his superiors in the park service have continued to support him.“People are now trying to mix these cases together, but [the drug investigation] has nothing to do with what Mauricio is charged with,” Eliécer Arce, the administrator for Corcovado National Park and one of Steller’s immediate supervisors, told The Tico Times.Arce said he had no knowledge of the narcotics investigation and that it is “completely false” that Steller found drugs during his ranger duties. Despite the investigation, Steller continued to work with SINAC until his sentencing in the attempted murder trial.Environmental groups have generally continued to support Steller, though some have toned their support down. Mauricio Álvarez, president of the Costa Rican Federation for Environmental Conservation (FECON) and one of Steller’s supporters, said that though he still believes Steller is innocent of attempted murder, the drug charges have made it difficult for his group to continue rallying for a pardon for StellerStill, he said, the lack of legal and physical protections for park rangers is a real, and widespread, problem.“I want to be clear that independent of [Steller’s] specific case there are many other cases,” he said. “Park rangers face systematic aggression and impunity in the cases they present in court against their aggressors.”SINAC Executive Director Jurado said Friday that he’s working to change regulations to allow SINAC to hire lawyers or use its own lawyers to defend park rangers in court.

Mortgage Rates Retreat on Tepid Economic Reports

first_imgMortgage Rates Retreat on Tepid Economic Reports Bankrate Freddie Mac GDP Mortgage Rates 2014-03-06 Tory Barringer It’s been a down week for mortgage rates following news of weaker-than-expected economic developments.Freddie Mac released Thursday the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey for the week ending March 6, showing the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) falling 9 basis points to an average rate of 4.28 percent (0.7 point). The 30-year FRM kicked off March last year at an average 3.52 percent.The 15-year FRM averaged 3.32 percent (0.6 point), down from 3.39 percent before.The 5-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) also retreated slightly, dropping to 3.03 percent (0.4 point), while the 1-year ARM was flat at 2.52 percent (0.3 point).“Mortgage rates were down this week as real GDP was revised downwards to 2.4 percent growth in the fourth quarter of 2013,” said Frank Nothaft, VP and chief economist at Freddie Mac. “Fixed residential investment negatively contributed to GDP decreasing 8.7 percent in the fourth quarter.”’s national survey showed slightly less dramatic movements, but rates were down all the same. According to the finance site’s weekly report, the 30-year fixed average dropped 3 basis points to 4.45 percent, while the 15-year fixed was down 4 points to 3.46 percent.The 5/1 ARM also declined, falling a few points to 3.26 percent.“The disappointing economic data hasn’t been so bad as to raise concerns of a sharp economic slowdown—yet—but have been just tepid enough to cast doubt on the idea of the economy suddenly accelerating,” Bankrate said in a release. “So we end up with this Goldilocks scenario of economic growth that isn’t too hot, but isn’t too cold, which has kept bond yields and mortgage rates in check.” March 6, 2014 443 Views center_img in Daily Dose, Headlines, News, Origination, Secondary Market Sharelast_img read more

Eastern Europe has suffered from a stigma – some people imagine it to be all concrete communist blocks and dodgy food – but that’s completely inaccurate.”Whilst it’s true that most resorts in Eastern and central Europe are smaller than large interlinked areas in France or Austria, they do offer plenty of great skiing in attractive alpine towns, excellent value and an interesting cultural experience.”Get more piste for your pound: 5 Value Ski ResortsZakopane, PolandZakopane is Poland’s winter capital and largest ski resort, which offers skiing from December to March.

NewsBy: Reuters | Beijing | Published: October 10 2016 1:26 pm China suffered a 1-0defeat at the hands of Syria three days ago (Source: Reuters) Top News China’s lengthy exile from the top table of international soccer looks set to continue for at least another six years unless Gao Hongbo can deliver a major turnaround in fortunes after a miserable start to the final round of World Cup qualifying While moves inspired by President Xi Jinping to turn the country into a dominant player in the sports marketing sector continue apace and the cash-rich club scene flourishes there has been no upturn for the national team Xi’s “three wishes” for Chinese soccer are that the country qualifies for another World Cup after their first and only appearance in 2002 host a World Cup and eventually win one After three matches out of 10 in the final round of Asian qualification for the 2018 finals however China have just one point from a goalless draw at home to Iran Their opening Group A 3-2 loss to regional powerhouse South Korea might have been expected but the 1-0 reverse they suffered at the hands of Syria on a rainy night in Xian last Thursday was not That defeat means Tuesday’s meeting with Uzbekistan in Tashkent looms as a “must-win” match for the Chinese if they are to force their way back into the reckoning for a top-two spot in the group that carries with it a ticket to Russia Iran and South Korea currently occupy those spots on seven points followed by Uzbekistan (six) and Syria (four) with China languishing in fifth place with their solitary point While there is also the possibility of securing a World Cup berth via two playoffs by finishing third the Chinese look almost certain to be vying with the Uzbeks for that spot “We have only lost two games out of total of 10 which means we still have our chance of qualifying” Gao who returned for a second stint as coach in February after the dismissal of Frenchman Alain Perrin said after the shock loss in Xian “It is not true that we are losing hope after losing two matches Our experience tells us that as long as we fight until the last second we will have opportunities “We are very lucky to reach this phase and we have to give our appreciation to all our supporters To be frank we are among the weaker sides in the 12 teams In this game we wanted three points so badly but we weren’t able to achieve it” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsUnited Nations: President Donald Trump’s huge proposed cuts in US funding for the United Nations would make it "simply impossible" for the world organisation to carry out essential work to promote peace combat poverty and provide humanitarian assistance the UN spokesman has said Stephane Dujarric told reporters on Wednesday the UN will wait to see what the US Congress does with the proposed budget "but we will need resources to deliver on our mandates" Republicans who control both houses of Congress are sceptical about the administration’s math and Democrats are opposed to the blueprint Representational image Reuters The United States is the largest contributor to the UN budget reflecting its position as the world’s largest economy It currently pays 25 percent of the United Nations’ $54 billion regular operating budget and over 28 percent of the separate $78 billion peacekeeping budget The budget that the Trump administration submitted Monday for the US fiscal year starting 1 October would cut funding for UN peacekeeping by $13 billion over 50 percent Contributions to international organisations including the United Nations would drop by $447 million a 31 percent decrease Among other cuts are total funding for the UN children’s agency UNICEF and as previously announced the UN population agency UNFPA During a visit to the White House by the UN Security Council last month Trump described the US contributions to the United Nations as "peanuts compared to the important work" But the president and the US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley have been pushing for reform of the world body especially its 16 far-flung peacekeeping operations Dujarric said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres "has been very vocal on the need to reform and is engaged and is committed and will continue to work on reform ensuring the UN.delivers what it is meant to deliver" Atul Khare the UN undersecretary-general for peacekeeping support said at a news conference that peacekeeping "is effective" pointing to nearly 70 missions that have wrapped up and "left a legacy of stability in countries spanning from El Salvador to Namibia to East Timor" The UN has already announced that three missions will soon be closing in Ivory Coast Liberia and Haiti Khare said "peacekeeping is cost effective" saying the current $78 billion budget supports 16 missions a regional centre and logistics base and the deployment of over 113000 personnel In addition he said the UN supports 22000 African Union peacekeepers and 595 civilians in Somalia Adjusting for inflation Khare said "the cost of UN peacekeeping to member states today is 17 percent lower in 2016-17 than it was in 2008-09 when measured as cost per capita of deployed uniformed personnel" The budget proposal says Trump wants to cap the US peacekeeping contribution at 25 percent but notes that the UN General Assembly only revises assessment rates every three year and the next negotiation isn’t due until 2018 "Therefore a 50 percent reduction in US funding for UN peacekeeping activities would need to be achieved through reductions in overall UN peacekeeping budget levels or reduced US contributions" it says "The request assumes greater burden sharing by other countries and a US assessed contribution at or below the statutory cap of 25 percent" Islamabad: Kashmir is not an internal matter of India Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Wednesday and asked it to hold a plebiscite to respect the rights of Kashmiris as Pakistan observed a ‘Black Day’ to express solidarity with the people of the Valley A file photo of Nawaz Sharif AP In his message Sharif said "Today we are

knew about the steps taken by police to trace missing children and asked them as well as the government to publicise such measures “… We heard so much about the odd-even scheme but nothing about this” said the bench after Delhi government’s senior standing counsel Rahul Mehra told the court that the government was taking various measures to trace the missing children The court also slammed traffic police for not doing enough to help children who were found on Delhi’s roads “We have so many policemen traffic constables beat constables… they sit at the red light with their hands in their pockets…

time Both Leander and Rohan played really well and it bodes well for them ahead of Olympics" Khanna said Asked about medal prospects the veteran administrator said it should not be a surprise if India finish on the podium "My view is that we have a chance in mixed doubles and men’s doubles Though the world’s best will be competing at the Olympics be it Roger Federer Rafael Nadal Novak (Djokovic) Andy Murray and all" the president of AITA said Last Saturday the Indian pair of Paes and Bopanna dished out a dominating performance to trounce the visitors 6-3 6-4 6-4 in just one hour and 41 minutes to guide India into the World Group Play-offs The reluctant partners for the Rio Olympics did not face any competition from the Koreans in what was their only competitive match together before the Games New Delhi: Gearing up to make his fourth Olympic appearance India’s Commonwealth Games champion discus thrower Vikas Gowda says he will compete less in the run-up to the Rio Games to be fresh for the big event in August The 32-year-old who was born in Mysore but grew up in Maryland (USA) said he would participate in some European events in July Vikas Gowda easing into his Olympic routine AP "I want to compete a little bit less than I have in the previous years I’m looking to begin competing in a few weeks in July in some competitions in Europe and the main focus is Rio in August" Gowda said from his base in the US Gowda is the only Indian male to win a track-and-field gold medal in the Commonwealth Games in the last 50 years and is arguably the most consistent Indian athlete in recent times Gowda said his passion for throwing helps him stay motivated while training alone in the US under former Olympic champion John Godina "There are definitely days that are harder than the others but there’s nothing else I’d rather be doing" said the six-feet-nine inches tall discus thrower The national record-holder with a best of 6628 metres also shared his training regime in the US "I usually train five-six days a week My training consists of throwing weightlifting plyometrics (jump training) and cross training When I train I do it with lots of intensity and I try to put myself in the competition atmosphere I want to be familiar with that feeling as much as possible" he said Gowda said the high standards for Olympic qualification in men’s discus throw (65 metres) this time was hardly a surprise for him "The standards are always high The only thing I have control over is my own performance I don’t worry too much on what other people are doing My target for Rio is to put myself in a position to succeed and to execute to the best of my abilities on that day" New Delhi: Aditya Prakash Verma whose legal battle against former BCCI chief the powerful N Srinivasan brought skeletons in the cricket board’s cupboard tumbling and finally resulted in decisive moves for wholesale changes in the way the game is run in the country is a happy man after the Supreme Court asked BCCI to fall in line with the Lodha committee recommendations But the man widely referred to as the original whistleblower won’t call himself one though According to him it’s just the beginning of a new inning in Indian cricket and the implementation of Justice Lodha Committee’s recommendations would bring a paradigm shift in the ‘gentleman’s game’ that has earned enough infamy Aditya Verma Photo: Naresh Sharma/Firstpost “I’m just the secretary of the Cricket Association of Bihar and not a whistleblower My fight against BCCI was to get full-member status for my state in the board As per the BCCI constitution the board is supposed to promote cricket in the entire country But out of 29 states and seven UTs players from only 20 states get representation Where do talented youngsters from the rest of the states go to play — Bangladesh Pakistan or Sri Lanka This led me to raise the red flag against BCCI and its administrators Lodha Committee’s recommendations will prove to be a game-changer” Verma (53) told Firstpost “The beginning of the new innings will be from 3 March onwards It’ll be a new dawn for Indian cricket the game that’s worshipped almost in each and every house in India The battle I had taken up will now benefit the cricket bodies of smaller states and their players if Lodha Committee’s recommendations are implemented in true spirit It’ll benefit North-East states I can say with conviction that Bihar which remained in oblivion for 15 years will now produce players for national senior and junior teams in the next four years The young talents from slums will get opportunity to play for their states and country” he said He was in the National Capital for the Supreme Court hearing held on 4 February On the apex court’s setting deadline of 3 March to the BCCI to explain how it intended to implement the recommendations the latter expressed several technical problems in implementing the recommendations “The SC didn’t ask BCCI’s opinion It has simply asked the body to tell the court on 3 March how it would implement the recommendations If it can’t the apex court has mentioned that Lodha panel comprising the most competent members of legal fraternity could take over and steer reforms in the board The BCCI can’t fool the nation any more It’s time to reform and move ahead” asserted Verma Originally from Chapra district of Bihar Verma inherited the passion for cricket from his father who was a businessman and an avid cricket lover He represented his college and was the only player from his district to have represented Bihar University in the all-India universities meet To promote cricket he had organised tournaments in Chapra and later moved to Jamshedpur to work and play for the Tatas Verma’s journey to get recognition for his state began in 2007-08 when he visited Mumbai frequently to meet BCCI officials often to be shooed away “When I took Srinivasan head-on several members including renowned players backed me supported my cause But once Lodha panel came up with its recommendations to clean up the BCCI these people found themselves at the receiving end Now they don’t even take my calls because it has hit their interests To me the real mother of Indian cricket is senior advocate Nalini Chidambaram who morally supported me and backed my cause and represented my case strongly” he mentioned Not ready to comment on the ongoing Arun Jaitley versus Arvind Kejriwal row over Delhi & District Cricket Association (DDCA) he said “Allegations and counter-allegations are a part of a political war But I personally consider Arun Jaitley a good cricket administrator In 2003-04 when Sharad Pawar unethically gave precedence to Jharkhand over Bihar the committee led by Jaitley revoked it It was during
