first_imgPogba has not played a game since Boxing Day and has only played a total of eight this season. In recent days, the French footballer has been involved in a controversy with Graeme Souness, a former Liverpool player, whom he said he did not know. Souness replied: “Put your titles on a table, I have a great table.” For years he has been one of the biggest critics of French: “Maybe one day he will be the footballer we hope for, but time passes and I’m still not convinced. “ Bruno Fernandes, Manchester United footballer, has come to the defense of his teammate Paul Pogba. “In soocer, people always forget if you play well when you have a mistake. You can do well for 34 games, which if you then have a bad game they will always remember. Paul is coming from a bad time. When playing, the team was not in a good situation. Expectation is always high with him because he is a top footballer and Manchester United paid a lot of money for it. It is normal. Everyone expects from Paul what they expect from Cristiano Ronaldo or Messi. Everyone expects this from Paul in Manchester because he has qualities for it. This is also confidence for him and we have a lot. “last_img read more

Weekly MP report from Jay Hill

January 12, 2020 | aqidxjti | No Comments

first_imgEven if you’re not a fan of CPAC, the live coverage of events taking place in the House of Commons this past Wednesday on Canada’s parliamentary affairs television channel were rather exciting. And what was happening behind the scenes was an inspiring example of parliamentary strategy and partisan cooperation for the good of the country. It all began when the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference initiated strike action against CN Rail the previous Saturday morning after the two sides were unable to reach an agreement in their labour dispute. While our Conservative Government, led by Labour Minister Rona Ambrose, had been monitoring the situation closely and urging both sides to settle the dispute, we could leave nothing to chance or hope. – Advertisement -Too much was at stake. All corners of Canada’s economy, already in a fragile state due to the global economic recession, would be devastated if the trains were to stop in their tracks for a prolonged strike. Even a week would ravage the sectors that depend upon CN Rail’s 20,000 km of track, from agriculture to forestry to automotive and mining products. In Prince George-Peace River, the strike would deal a massive blow to our coal mines, mills and farmers. I immediately gave formal ‘notice’ in the Order Paper that if negotiations between both sides continued to fail, we would table back-to-work legislation to protect the livelihoods of Canadians. However, a piece of legislation can take several days to wind through the Parliamentary approval process … it can take far, far longer if one of the political parties, in this case the NDP, obstruct. Advertisement While Minister Ambrose continued to urge CN Rail and the Teamsters Union to come to an agreement, as Government House Leader, I was working with the Official Opposition to put the best interests of the nation first.Without the cooperation of the NDP, we would need to invoke “closure”, a motion to fast-track the bill through all stages in the House of Commons. And so, in the final ten minutes of Question Period on Wednesday, as I was preparing to rise and move a motion of “closure” on the CN back-to-work legislation … as Members of Parliament were poised to sit through the night until the early morning hours the next day to get the trains rolling once again….Minister Ambrose rose in the House to announce that CN and the Teamsters Union had reached an agreement. I would like to congratulate Minister Ambrose for her leadership and efforts on this labour dispute, and CN Rail and the Teamsters Union for their hard work in reaching an agreement.I would also like to applaud my colleagues in the Liberal Party for their cooperation and willingness to set aside partisanship to shield Canadians from the damaging effects of this strike. Only the federal New Democratic Party is unhappy with the outcome.Advertisement Canada is slowly edging its way out of the global recession with the GDP, consumer spending and confidence on the rise, and a 25% increase in infrastructure investment. We must continue to implement our two-year Economic Action Plan, stay the course and be ever vigilant.last_img read more

first_imgTHE extent of cuts to Co Donegal schools has driven MEP Marian Harkin to accuse the Government of targeting children in their cuts – with one principal telling her that those cuts are putting education back 18 years in the county.Ms Harkin was speaking to last night after attending the massive rally in Letterkenny on Saturday where up to 3,000 demonstrators took to the streets.The MEP, who also attended the rally, said she spent time away from the media an the crowds talking to ‘ordinary’ parents and teachers. And what she heard horrified her, saying that parents had told her that while they had to accept the austerity measures imposed by government it was totally unacceptable that the same treatment was to be imposed on their children.Marian Harkin told us: “Speaking to the principal of St. Eunan’s Raphoe which will lose four teachers next September, he revealed that the statistics of deprivation are worse today than when the school applied for Deis designation 18 years ago.“Overall in Donegal of the 179 primary schools,100 have 4 teachers or less and all of these will be adversely impacted by the Minister’s new regulations next September or soon after.  Many of these schools are in rural areas and there is no doubt that the new regulations will lead to the closure of some of them.“This was highlighted to me by the principal of Bunbeg national school and government policy represents a serious threat to protestant and Gaeltacht schools which will be disproportionately affected. “There will be particular problems caused by the change in the regime governing special needs assistants and resource teachers.  These changes will adversely impact children with special needs and, as such, are totally unacceptable.“I understand that Minister Quinn has a difficult situation to resolve but cutting primary educational resources would be counterproductive and unjust and definitely against the long term interest of the nation.”LEAVE YOUR COMMENT BELOW© 2012, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.
