WINNIPEG 每 OPINION 每?All students, Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal, need to learn that the history of this country did not begin in 1492, or even with the arrival of Vikings much earlier. They need to learn about the Aboriginal nations that the Europeans met, about their rich linguistic and cultural heritage, about what they felt and thought as they dealt with such historic figures as Champlain, LaVerendrye and the representatives of the Hudson*s Bay Company. They need to learn why they negotiated treaties and that they negotiated them with purpose and integrity and in good faith. They need to learn why Aboriginal leaders and elders fight so hard to defend those poorly worded treaties and what they represent to them and why they have been ignored by Euro-Canadian settlers and governments.

They need to learn about what it means to have inherent rights, what those are for Aboriginal people, and the settler government*s obligations, in those areas where treaties have never been negotiated in the first place. They need to learn of the many issues that are ongoing and why.

CIHR’s Carrie Bourassa to deliver ii’ taa’poh’to’p lecture at downtown campus Feb. 7

Dr. Carrie Bourassa, PhD, didn*t get into the field of Indigenous health on purpose. But, with more than 15 years of experience in Indigenous health research, and as the current scientific director of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Institute of Indigenous Peoples* Health (IIPH), you*d never guess it.

※I never had a plan, or a career path?〞?I just knew I had to get to university,§ says Dr. Bourassa of her journey. Growing up in Regina*s inner-city, she was the first in her family to complete high school.

※I came from a lot of dysfunction,§ she says. ※My mom and dad were teenagers when they had me, so I grew up mostly with my grandfather, who had a Grade 3 education. My mom had Grade 7, and my dad had Grade 8. Staying in school was often at the urging of my grandfather, who kept telling me I*d be the first to be a doctor or lawyer. He kept me on that path. But I am very grateful to my parents who also encouraged me and passed on an incredibly strong work ethic.§

Six more communities to receive emergency social services funding

VICTORIA 每 Another six communities have been approved to receive a share of approximately $3 million in provincial emergency preparedness funding to support emergency social services.

In December 2018, 25 communities were approved for Emergency Social Services (ESS) funding under the second intake of the Community Emergency Preparedness Fund. The additional six communities have had their funding requests approved for ESS training, capacity building and equipment. The following communities are receiving funding: Enderby, Esquimalt, Port Coquitlam, Port McNeill, Tsawwassen First Nation and Vernon.

※Six more communities, including two in the Lower Mainland and two on Vancouver Island, are going to be better supported in their ability to provide a lifeline for those who have been evacuated in an emergency,§ said Mike Farnworth, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General. ※That means more help for individuals and families in need and more support for the many volunteers who provide this lifeline?when people need it most.§

The Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) released the funding for Intake 2 of the Emergency Social Services component of the Community Emergency Preparedness Fund (CEPF) that was announced at the UBCM convention in September 2017. The funding is part of a $33.5-million plan designed to help communities prepare for, and respond to, disasters.

The CEPF is a suite of programs designed to enhance the resiliency of local governments and their residents. The Province provides the funding, which is administered by UBCM and divided into five streams:

  • Flood Risk Assessment, Flood Mapping and Flood Mitigation Planning
  • Emergency Social Services
  • Emergency Operations Centres and Training
  • Structural Flood Mitigation
  • Evacuation Routes

The next deadlines to apply for this program are:

  • Feb. 1, 2019: Emergency Operations Centres and Training Intake 2
  • Feb. 22, 2019: Flood Risk Assessment, Mapping and Mitigation Intake 2
  • Oct. 25, 2019: Structural Flood Mitigation Intake 2

Three-quarters of Indigenous people in Canada live off reserves

The head of the New Brunswick Aboriginal Peoples Council says she’s disappointed children living off reserve won’t benefit ?from changes to education funding.

This spring, on reserve-schools will receive $1,500 per student every year for language and cultural programs, and schools will offer full kindergarten for on-reserve kids aged four and five.

This comes after the federal government announced it will reallocate $2 billion for First Nations education to attempt to bring equity between on and off-reserve schooling.

Amanda LeBlanc, interim chief and president of the council, said children who live off-reserve need to be able access their language and culture, since those elements are built in on-reserve schools.

Kenora MP Bob Nault accused Timmins-James Bay NDP MP Charlie Angus and provincial Indigenous Affairs Minister Greg Rickford of playing politics when they criticized the federal Liberal government*s handling of housing on Cat Lake First Nation, after the remote northwestern Ontario First Nation*s chief and council declared a state of emergency over what they call ※profoundly poor conditions of housing§ a week prior.

An independent consultant*s report finished in December 2018 notes major problems with housing on Cat Lake First Nation, including excessive mould, structural and foundation issues, dangerous electrical conditions and roofing issues, causing invasive bacterial disease, including lung infections. Nault said the federal government paid $200,000 for that assessment.

Cat Lake First Nation Chief Matthew Keewaykapow and council demanded in a declaration that federal and provincial governments take immediate steps to address the housing

(Toronto, ON, January 29, 2019) Ontario Regional Chief RoseAnne Archibald celebrates the official launch of the International Year of Indigenous Languages. This is a particularly pressing and important issue internationally and within Canada as Indigenous peoples, communities and organizations make efforts to ensure the survival of Indigenous languages throughout Canada and to raise awareness of the many Indigenous languages across the globe. ※I applaud the United Nations for declaring 2019 the International Year of Indigenous Languages,§ said Regional Chief Archibald. ※Our language and all dialects are fundamental to our identity, culture, and overall health and socio-economic well-being. The decision to dedicate 2019 as the International Year of Indigenous Languages is welcomed by First Nations in Ontario and this recognition and promotion of our Peoples languages is a significant stride in the partnership relationship we*ve been working toward.§? This year*s dedication is meant to not only empower Indigenous peoples, to preserve and embrace re-learning their languages, but to also celebrate and appreciate the many contributions Indigenous peoples have made to the world*s cultural diversity.

※Revitalizing First Nations languages is an essential component in self-determination. Currently, First Nations and Federal Government are working on the co-development of the Indigenous Languages Act,§ said Regional Chief Archibald. ※Working in partnership with First Nations leadership in Ontario and the Government of Ontario, we have developed a Lifelong Learning Table, a bi-lateral process that works to ensure First Nations communities work in partnerships and collaboration to bring changes and new approaches to First Nations education and languages revitalization in provincial schools in Ontario. The culture, traditions, values and knowledge of First Nations peoples are reflected in the languages that are spoken, we plan to continue to collaborate through the Leadership Committee on Languages to ensure First Nations languages are maintained and revitalized for the next generations.§

※There is no Indigenous dialect that is not in danger of disappearing. This year is an opportunity to raise awareness and to empower First Nations in Ontario, especially our youth and to strengthen our Nations,§ said Regional Chief Archibald. ※We must continue to play the leading role in revitalizing our language, culture and identity and continue to shed a light on the connection between our true shared history and the importance of language recovery. We are in a critical moment for Indigenous peoples across the world 每 we must act with urgency to deliver high-quality education, this includes support for language and culture to improve outcomes for First Nations.§

McGill Nurses for Global Health hosted a panel of indigenous healthcare professionals and community members on Jan. 17 to discuss the importance of integrating indigenous understandings of health into care.

Megan Eaker, a McGill Nursing master*s student and woman of mixed Cree and European ancestry, opened the event by offering concrete steps that healthcare professionals can take to better serve indigenous communities. She emphasized the importance of making room for ceremony and spirituality in healthcare. At the same time, she also implored healthcare professionals to understand the diversity of indigenous cultures within Canada as well as the vast continuum of cosmologies within a single nation. Her arguments may appear obvious, considering that there are over 600 distinct indigenous nations in Canada, but, nonetheless, Eaker lamented that a conversation about indigenous diversity is frequently excluded from modern Western medicine.

Ottawa 每 28 January 2019 每 BluMetric Environmental Inc. (TSX.V: BLM) is pleased to announce its fourth consecutive profitable year.

Financial Highlights

  • Earnings before provision for income tax were $544,000 compared to $334,000 in the previous year, representing an increase of 63%.
  • A deferred income tax asset of $2.1 million was recognized in fiscal 2018, representing mainly loss carry forwards that will be used to offset future taxable income, as well as deductions for tax related to capital (CCA) and scientific research and development (SR&ED).? Previously, a full allowance had been taken against this asset.
  • Net earnings were $2.7 million for fiscal 2018 compared to $0.3 million in the previous year. In the fourth quarter, net earnings were $2.3 million compared to a net loss of ($54,000) in the same quarter of fiscal 2017. This is largely due to the recognition of the deferred income tax asset of $2.1 million, as stated above.
  • Revenue for the year was $32.2 million, an increase of 6% compared to $30.5 million for the year ended September 30, 2017. Revenue for the fourth quarter is $8.6 million, an increase of 13% over the same quarter of fiscal 2016.
  • Gross margin stayed consistent at 21% year over year.
  • Operating costs increased to $5.7 million from $5.4 million in the prior year, and in the fourth quarter decreased to $1.5 million from $1.6 million. The increase for the year is driven largely by the Company*s severance payment obligation of $250,000, less withholdings, in respect of salary, bonus, and vacation pay to the Company*s former CEO.
  • EBITDA (see Note 1 definition below) decreased to $1.3 million from $1.4 million in the previous year. In the fourth quarter, EBITDA increased to $427,000 from $198,000 in the previous year.

※BluMetric made significant operational strides across all our major business segments in Fiscal 2018 through the adoption of a key-market focus and by targeting professional resources where we excel, which includes an emphasis on technology and innovation,§ said Scott MacFabe, CEO of BluMetric.? ※As a result, we are creating strategic opportunities not only through new business development but also through deeper relationships with existing clients thanks to the unique combination of our technical sophistication and agility.§

Operational Highlights

BluMetric*s improved operational and financial performance in FY2018 was primarily driven by the completion of a strategic re-alignment designed to narrow both its geographic and business segment focus to the following areas in which it enjoys market leader positioning and sees the potential for sustained, long term growth: (1) Mining, (2) Military, (3) Government, and (4) Commercial and Industrial.

With a continued emphasis on strengthening its technical service offerings, during the year the Company made significant advances in each of these key markets propelled by the adoption of a more strategic approach to business and corporate development that includes actively leveraging past successes to expand and diversify client partnerships and service offerings.

  • Mining:? BluMetric*s mining business continued to grow both in terms of revenue generation and the strength of its offerings throughout the year. The Company has secured a number of mining contracts with new and existing clients focused on the development and implementation of remedial strategies, including the care and maintenance of closed mining facilities, in line with a strategy to move beyond the straightforward assessment of problems to more complex engineering solutions and the forging of deeper client partnerships.
  • Military:? Highlighting the quality and reliability of BluMetric*s products and engineering capabilities, the Company was awarded a number of military market contracts in late Fiscal 2018. Most recently, BluMetric was awarded a $4.16 million contract with Seaspan Shipyards to provide highly specialized water purification systems aboard Royal Canadian Navy Joint Support Ships, as detailed in a press release dated November 7, 2018.? Being competitively selected for this extremely important initiative helps to position BluMetric to partner with world class defense contractors like Seaspan and to participate in this market on a global scale.
  • Government:? During the year BluMetric completed a number of challenging projects in the Canadian Arctic involving the deployment of new equipment and cutting edge technology to previously underserviced regions, an area in which BluMetric sees great promise in.? These projects included rapid response to several oil spills, the final commissioning and operation of a satellite telemetry based system, and the implementation of a Chemical Management System in Nunavut to name a few, all of which required a large degree of coordination and specialty knowledge across numerous business areas, highlighting the Company*s strong interdisciplinary processes and integrated service offerings.
  • Commercial and Industrial 每 BluMetric continued to innovate and create new opportunities with our commercial and industrial portfolio throughout Fiscal 2018.? During the year, the Company successfully carried out various pilot testing programs with key clients, including one of the largest waste disposal companies in North America, to confirm the viability of its most promising contaminant removal technologies.? Also notable, the Company completed the installation and commissioning of two full-scale ammonia removal systems for commercial wastewater treatment facilities.? BluMetric is seeing growing interest in these patented systems in particular as significant advantages such as increased production capacity and revenue, and lower capital and operating costs become increasingly apparent.

Outlook

BluMetric has refocused and aligned its sales and marketing team for Fiscal 2019 in order to focus on obtaining new revenue contracts in its key markets while efficiently implementing projects, improving cost controls and completing the sale of its non-core assets. The Company will continue to hone its competitive stance through research and innovation and by positioning BluMetric for strong client-centric growth, which means scaling business not only through new customer generation but also through its existing client base with the provision of high quality, inventive solutions created with the prevention of problems in mind.

OTTAWA 每 On January 17, Pauktuutit*s Board of Directors selected and announced its Inuk Woman of the Year. This year*s nominees are all deserving of recognition and represent just some of the diversity, strength and talent of Inuit women from across Inuit Nunangat.

The 2018-19 Inuk Woman of the Year is Audrey Qamanirq of Arctic Bay, Nunavut. For over 20 years, she has worked to bring back traditional Inuit knowledge like sewing, hunting, and how to use traditional tools. She has done this while balancing work, family responsibilities, and volunteering with community-based committees in addition to being a translator and interpreter. She has helped dozens of Inuit girls and women learn valuable sewing skills including how to make traditional clothing like kamiit, sealskin parkas, and mittens. She has also run programs for young men to hunt and provide char and seal to elders.

Pauktuutit*s President, Rebecca Kudloo said, ※There are many strong, positive Inuit role models and Inuk Woman of the Year helps us highlight just some of them. Pauktuutit is proud to recognize the important and positive impact Audrey has made to her community. By promoting and using Inuit traditional knowledge, she is encouraging and growing community and cultural pride among young Inuit. We thank Audrey for her contributions ? and are already looking forward to next year*s nominees.§

This year they reduced the deer population by 50

Point Pelee National Park closed between?January 10 and 26 for a deer cull to reduce the population by 50.

The deer population was estimated at 120?before the cull, up from 103 last January, according to Tammy Dobbie, the park’s ecologist. The park works with the Caldwell First Nation, who take the deer for personal and ceremonial use.

“After our deer herd reduction activities this year [the population]?is still above the caring capacity we like to see in a healthy ecosystem in the park,” said Dobbie, estimating the amount of deer at 70 or 71.

  • Point Pelee to close for two-week deer cull
  • 36 deer ‘removed’ from Point Pelee park in deer cull

The park has been actively managing deer since the late 1980s or early 1990s.?As of 2014, a new deer reduction strategy was introduced.

Dr. Jo-ann Archibald Q*um Q*um Xiiem found her purpose early in life.

In high school in the *60s, she was forced to navigate a system that either neglected Indigenous history and culture or reduced it to stereotypes. Despite living and feeling the legacy of colonial practices as a member of the St車:l身 First Nations, she recalled not knowing the full history until she studied at UBC.

※I often felt ashamed about being Indigenous for what was taught in high school,§ she said.

The inclusion of Indigenous knowledge and perspective became a singular focus for Archibald over her 45-year career: in her teacher education assignments, in her development of K-12 curriculum and in her research and work at UBC.

NESKANTAGA: Neskantaga First Nation Chief Wayne Moonias has issued the following statement after a court decision yesterday that Adam Capay, who was charged with the first-degree murder of Neskantaga member Sherman Quisses, will not stand trial.

“Neskantaga community and the Quisses family have fought for justice for Sherman since his murder in 2012 and we are very disappointed that this murder trial will not proceed. Sherman’s murder has devastated his family and severely affected our community. Members of the Quisses family are still struggling to deal with their loss and are experiencing ongoing emotional distress. This decision revictimizes the family. We strongly opposed the granting of a stay in this case, and we are struggling to understand how there can be no justice for Sherman. We appreciate the support we have received during this lengthy legal process and Neskantaga will continue to support the Quisses family during this difficult time.”

In a ruling delivered Monday, Justice John Fregeau granted a stay of proceedings after finding that Adam Capay’s rights under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms were violated.

Sherman Quisses, 34, was the father of one child and the second oldest of six siblings. When he was murdered in 2012, he predeceased his mother, Edna Moonias who passed away in 2014, and his grandmother, Sarah Quisses, who passed away in 2016.

Neskantaga First Nation is situated in Northern Ontario on Attawapiskat Lake, 271 kilometres north east of Thunder Bay, Ontario. It is a remote community accessible only by air or winter ice-road. It has over 500+ band members.

Ottawa, Ontario –?January 29, 2019

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today released a new ministerial mandate letter to reflect recent changes to the Ministry and to guide the Government*s ongoing commitment to spur economic growth and create good, middle class jobs across the country.

Over the past three years, the Government has taken significant strides to fulfill its mandate and deliver meaningful results for Canadians. This month, we took another important step to ensure those results reach Canadians living in rural and remote areas by naming the new Minister of Rural Economic Development, Bernadette?Jordan.

The mandate letter for Minister Jordan outlines the critical role that rural Canada plays to grow our economy and create good, middle class jobs. Working with Cabinet colleagues, Minister Jordan will develop a whole-of-government rural economic development strategy to diversify and strengthen rural economies, and create more opportunities for rural Canadians.

Minister Jordan will lead efforts to bring high-speed internet access to more people and businesses in rural Canada. She will also take action to help rural Canadians better access social programs that meet their needs, such as finding affordable housing and childcare.

Today*s announcement reaffirms the Government*s commitment to be the most open and accessible government possible, and deliver real, meaningful progress for Canadians.

Quote

※We know that Canadians living and working in rural areas face unique challenges, and that*s why we created this new role 每 to make sure they have the support and resources that respond to their needs. Whether it*s securing funding for important infrastructure projects, having a reliable internet connection so their businesses can grow, or finding local childcare services, rural Canadians should have access to what they need to provide for their families and succeed in the digital economy. When our rural communities thrive, Canada thrives.§
〞The Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada

Quick Facts

  • Publicly available mandate letters make it easier for Canadians to hold the government to account for its commitments. As part of a plan for a more open and transparent government, they are an important tool that allows Canadians to see the Prime Minister*s expectations for each minister and gives them a clear idea of how the government will deliver its agenda.
  • Mandate letters outline the policy objectives that each minister will work to accomplish, as well as the pressing challenges that each minister will address in their role. They are not an exhaustive list of all files a minister will work on.

Robin Cisek*s original song Waiting on You recently hit #34 on the Top 40 Indigenous Music Countdown, which the aspiring musician calls a major accomplishment.

※Making the top 40 is a huge accomplishment and helps me get my name out there,§ explained Cisek. ※From that, I got a ton of air play and made some important new contacts.§

Catching her song live was also a big surprise for her and an exciting experience.

※The first time I heard my song on the radio I was shopping with my mom and listening to a live-stream on my phone,§ explained Cisek. ※The first notes from my song played and I wiped out my phone, paused the live-stream and saw my name on the song. We ran out of the store, unplugged my headphones, set my phone on the ground and started playing it again as we Facebook lived the whole song. It was so exciting!§

Vancouver, B.C. 每 The BC Council of Forest Industries (COFI) is pleased to announce that it will be welcoming Canada*s Ambassador to the United States, David MacNaughton, to speak at its annual convention. This year*s event, one of the largest annual gatherings of the forest sector in Canada, will take place from April 3-5, 2019 in Vancouver.

※With negotiations completed on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, and the ongoing softwood lumber trade dispute, Ambassador MacNaughton will share valuable perspectives on Canada-U.S. relations from his vantage point in Washington, D.C.,§ said Susan Yurkovich, President and CEO of COFI. ※The Ambassador has been a key supporter of the B.C. forest sector on the softwood lumber dispute, and we look forward to hearing his insights at our convention.§

David MacNaughton has served as Canada*s Ambassador since March 2016 and works in close partnership with all levels of government to represent Canadian interests in Washington. He has been a key player in talks on NAFTA, softwood lumber, aluminum, steel and other bilateral issues. The United States is our closest trading partner, with U.S. customers purchasing more than half of B.C.*s lumber, amounting to more than $4 billion annually.

※In B.C., forestry generates over 140,000 jobs across the province, in urban and rural communities alike. The continued strength of our trade relationships and international markets will be vital as forestry employers continue to support well-paying jobs for British Columbians,§ added Yurkovich.

This year, the COFI convention is in Vancouver at a new venue, the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver Hotel. Hundreds of delegates 每 industry executives, managers, suppliers, businesses, and government and First Nations leaders 每 are expected to be in attendance. Other speakers will include forestry CEOs, young industry leaders, experts on market diversification, and many more. Discounted early bird rates are available until March 1, 2019. Delegates can register online at?https://www.cofi.org/convention/2019-convention

The BC Council of Forest Industries is the voice of the B.C. forest industry in the province. Forestry creates one in every 17 jobs, or more than 140,000 jobs in British Columbia. The industry is adapting, evolving and innovating, and continues to be one of the most significant economic drivers in the province.

A judge called Garry Handlen a sexual predator and sentenced him to life in prison for killing a 12-year-old girl in 1978 but moments later dismissed a case involving allegations that the man murdered another British Columbia girl three years earlier.

B.C. Supreme Court Justice?Austin Cullen said Handlen preyed on the vulnerable and weak to commit barbaric crimes and has already been convicted for other sexual assaults.

Handlen, 71, was found guilty by a jury earlier this month of the first-degree murder of Monica Jack, who disappeared while riding her bike in Merritt on May 6, 1978.

He confessed to an undercover officer in November 2014 that he abducted Jack, sexually assaulted and strangled her before burning her clothes and parts of her body.

Lethbridge College*s?Police Cadet Training program?welcomed a new class of 34 cadets this morning from five different agencies. This class is unique as it marks the first time in Alberta*s history that police recruits and community peace officer recruits will train side-by-side.

A total of 34 cadets will take part, including 23 from Lethbridge Police Service, three from the Blood Tribe Police Service, one from the Taber Police Service, four from the Canadian Pacific Police Service and three from the Manitoba First Nations Police Service.

※To be counted on to provide this training to such a varied group of agencies is a testament to the expertise of our faculty and our curriculum design,§ says Dr. Jeanine Webber, Dean of the Centre for Justice and Human Services. ※Our competency-based training model ensures that cadets receive training that prepares them with all of the skills needed to succeed once they join their respective organizations.§

Lethbridge College instructors and Lethbridge Police Service members team up to ensure the students receive both hard skills, such as firearms use, and soft skills, such as interpersonal communication, ethical accountability and teamwork needed for policing. Cadets receive academic accreditation through Lethbridge College for completing the training.

The cadets, who bring a range of experience and come from diverse backgrounds, will undergo 22 weeks of classroom modules and scenario-based training followed by several weeks with a field training officer before they are ready to hit the street on their own.

In 2018, the Blood Tribe Police Service became the first Indigenous police service in Canada to train outside of the RCMP Academy, Depot Division in Regina. The Manitoba First Nations Police Service is joining them in this round of training.

※We are extremely proud to have members of the Blood Tribe Police Service and the Manitoba First Nations Police Service training alongside our members,§ said Lethbridge Police Service Chief Rob Davis. ※I have been quite candid that real truth and reconciliation begins to happen when we share, grow and learn together, side by side. It*s real 每 a lasting memory and impact for everyone that goes beyond any awareness training or a power point. This is an incredible opportunity for all of the agencies and their cadets.§

The college*s Police Cadet Training program was recognized with a?gold Program Excellence award?by Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) in 2018.

In this episode of Violent Times, we interview Vickie Roach about violence and indigenous incarceration.

Indigenous Australians are the most incarcerated people on earth. They make up two percent of the general population, but a staggering 28 percent of the male prison population and 34 percent of the female prison population.

According to the Australian Law Reform Commission, the majority of indigenous female prisoners are survivors of domestic violence, family violence and sexual abuse. This trauma exacerbates the existing disadvantages faced by First Nations people.

In this episode of Violent Times, we interview Vicki Roach: a Yuin woman, academic, and prison abolitionist. She received her first criminal charges when she was just two years old, for &neglect by way of destitution.*

Tobique First Nation singer’s debut album won the Polaris prize in 2018

Jeremy Dutcher is dedicating his award-winning debut album to the Indigenous people of his home province.

Tobique First Nation’s Dutcher is having a big couple of years. His album Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa won the $50,000 Polaris Music Prize and was named one of the best of 2018 by National Public Radio in the U.S.

He’s since been taking his songs, all written and performed in?Wolastoqey, the language of the?Wolastoqiyik, on cross-country tours.

“I didn’t create this for Canada, even though it’s being enjoyed and people are gravitating toward the work I created,” he told Information Morning Fredericton. “This for a very small community here in New Brunswick.”

The City of London is looking for volunteers to help implement the?Community Diversity and Inclusion Strategy?(CDIS). Community champions are needed to sit on the five working groups established around the priorities identified in CDIS:

  1. Take concrete steps towards healing and reconciliation
  2. Have zero tolerance for oppression, discrimination and ignorance
  3. Connect and engage Londoners
  4. Remove accessibility barriers to services, information and spaces
  5. Remove barriers to employment

Applications to sit on these working groups are now being?accepted. As part of the application, volunteers are asked indicate why they are interested in being part of the CDIS implementation process, identify experience and relevant skills, as well as which working group they are interested in being part of.

※Diversity and inclusion are among the top priorities for Londoners and the City,§ says Rosanna Wilcox, Community and Economic Innovation. ※We are committed to mandating equity and exemplifying our vision of London as a diverse and inclusive community.§

In order to develop the CDIS, in November 2016, the City of London issued a call for volunteer &Diversity and Inclusion Champions.* 200 Londoners, reflecting a diversity of backgrounds and perspectives, stepped forward to be part of this process.

The CDIS is a community strategy that outlines 5 priorities and 47 recommendations, both short and long term, and reflects a collective effort and interest in building a more inclusive city.? An important next step in implementing the plan is to establish an implementation body. The CDIS implementation body will guide the work, oversee implementation plans and ensure ongoing monitoring and evaluation of the work.

Applications are accepted online until March 25, 2019 at?getinvolved.london.ca/CDIS.

MacEwan University is heartbroken to learn that 23-year-old Nakehko Lamothe, a member of the Griffins men*s hockey team, has passed away. After playing a game in Calgary on Friday, January 25, Nakehko became unwell, and was rushed to Foothills Hospital. Sadly, just before midnight, Nakehko passed away.

Dr. Deborah Saucier, president, MacEwan University, has spoken to family members to share condolences and offer support. ※It*s difficult to comprehend the pain Nakehko*s family is going through right now. We will do whatever we can to assist them during this tragic time.§

A student in the Bachelor of Science program, Nakehko was in his third-year with the Griffins after joining the program out of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League*s La Ronge Ice Wolves in 2016. He played a vital role with the Griffins, helping the team to win back-to-back Alberta Colleges Athletic Association (ACAC) titles in 2017 and 2018.

Nakehko grew up in the Bigstone Cree Nation in Calling Lake. Nakehko was extremely proud of his Indigenous heritage and took the same passion and enthusiasm he demonstrated as a player and applied them to becoming a role model for Indigenous youth.

Saucier said that Nakehko considered his fellow players as family, not just as teammates. ※Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and teammates, who Nakehko considered to? be family. The university is putting support services in place to help them through this difficult time.§

The Griffins* hockey game scheduled for January 26 has been cancelled.

This is an extremely sad time for Nakehko*s family and the MacEwan University community. The university asks that the media respect the family’s privacy and direct any questions to MacEwan*s media relations advisor, David Beharry. The university will not be making any further statements at this time.

OTTAWA 每 Cat Lake First Nation remains under a state of emergency. The emergency was declared over issues with housing.

On the first day of sitting in the new session of parliament Timmins-James Bay MP Charlie Angus raised the issue questioning Indigenous Services Minister Seamus O*Regan.

Here is the exchange from the Hansard:

Mr. Charlie Angus (Timmins〞James Bay, NDP)

Mr. Speaker, we are now three weeks into the state of emergency, the deplorable humanitarian crisis in Cat Lake. Temperatures have plunged to -55∼, we have hundreds of people huddled in squalid conditions, people are at risk, and yet the best the minister has been able to do after three weeks is to promise to send some bureaucrats to check on the situation. That is not going to cut it.

Strengthens Position as Leading Canadian Domestic Frac Sand Producer

January 29, 2019 EDMONTON, ALBERTA. Athabasca Minerals Inc. (“AMI” or the “Corporation”) (TSX Venture: ABM) has entered into an agreement (“Agreement”) to acquire ownership of a private Alberta corporation (“Privco2”) that holds the Duvernay Frac Sand Project (“Duvernay Project”) in Alberta. The Duvernay Project adds to and further strengthens the Corporation’s objective of becoming the leading ‘in-basin’ frac sand supplier of premium domestic sand in Western Canada through its wholly-owned subsidiary, AMI Silica Inc.

AMI has progressively staged its ownership in Privco2, based on key milestones in delineating the Duvernay Project resource. An initial investment of $280,000 in cash and the issuance of 420,000 Athabasca (‘ABM’) shares was made for 16.2% interest in Privco2.? An additional 33.4% interest will be acquired for $742,000 and the issuance of 1,680,000 Athabasca (‘ABM’) shares pending resource delineation results expected in April-2019. The Corporation has the further option to purchase the remaining 50.4% percent from Privco2 shareholders within 1 year following this transaction.

Robert Beekhuizen, CEO of Athabasca Minerals, and President of AMI Silica Inc stated; “With the acquisition of Privco2, AMI Silica Inc has expanded and strategically positioned its portfolio with a ‘book-end’ project serving the Duvernay and Deep Basins in Alberta that fittingly complements its Montney In-basin Project. The quality of the Duvernay Project frac sand benchmarks well against imported Tier-1 Wisconsin / Northern White sands. Considering that 30% of the frac sand used in the Western Canadian Oil & Gas sector is deployed in Duvernay and Deep Basins, and 55% in the Montney Basin, AMI Silica’s assets cater to 85% of market demand with premium domestic in-basin resources. Additionally, the Corporation’s Duvernay and Montney Projects offer important supply and logistics alternatives to local industry that simplify product delivery, double-handling risks, reduce transportation costs and a continued dependence on 70% imported American frac sand.”

Early laboratory results of the Duvernay Project sand, as conducted by Stim-Lab Inc on samples taken from the deposit, showed favorable physical properties, with sphericity and roundness factors of 0.7 each, acid solubility of 2.6% and crush strength values of 9k psi (40/70 granularity) and test results of 10k psi (70/140 granularity). These preliminary results indicate that the Duvernay Project sand complies with API Standard 19C specifications for sands used in hydraulic fracturing.

Athabasca and Privco2 have formed a joint project team, with initial exploration activities to commence immediately. Funds invested in Privco2 will be used to advance the Duvernay Project commencing with resource delineation and validation in Q1-2019.

In accordance with the requirements of National Instrument 43-101, Mr. Al Turner, M.Sc., P.Geol., of Stantec Consulting Ltd., has filled the role of Qualified Person responsible for review of the technical content included in this Press Release.? Mr. Turner is an independent consultant contracted by the Corporation.

The day of firsts when the Commons opened sittings in Parliament Hill*s West Block Monday included a special first for Indigenous MPs 〞 the first time a member of Parliament delivered an entire speech in an Indigenous language with translation provided by the House of Commons.

The breakthrough came following months of Commons study after Indigenous Quebec MP Romeo Saganash, a New Democrat, challenged a Speaker*s ruling in 2017 that the Commons did not have the capacity to translate Indigenous languages 〞 which total more than 60 in Canada.

Manitoba Liberal MP Robert Falcon-Ouellette timed the first use of Indigenous translation during debate on a Conservative motion proposing to establish May 5 as ※Dutch Heritage Day§ in Canada.

Unusual as it sounds, the choice was a match for the motion from southwestern Ontario Conservative MP Dave Van Kesteren.

    Chateh, Alberta

    On Jan?28,?2019?Chateh youth skated on a brand new public rink thanks to a partnership between the local RCMP and the Dene Tha’ First Nation Recreation and Cultural Society. A first of its kind in the community, the rink will facilitate sports year-round thanks to contributions from the Rink of Dreams Society, Sport Central, RCMP Foundation, Tolko Industries and funding from Jordan’s Principle.

    With the nearest recreation centre available to the approximately?300?youth in Chateh?45?minutes away in Rainbow Lake, Detachment Commander Sgt. Gord Hughes and Dene Tha’ Council members recognized a need for a space in their community where local youth could enjoy safe physical activity, relieve stress, engage with other members of the community, and build an open and positive relationship with the RCMP.

    Sgt. Hughes and the Dene Tha’ First Nation Recreation and Cultural Society were granted over?$150,000?in funding for the project by Jordan’s Principle based on these goals. Jordan’s Principle is a commitment to First Nations children to ensure they get the products, services and support they need, when they need them.

    “Ensuring the wellbeing of a community and of its youth is fundamental to a healthy community. By building the Heek’iicho Mieh (Bison Pond), we want to facilitate wellness across the spectrum 每 physical, mental, emotional and social. We want this space to be a rink, an arena and a sanctuary for Chateh youth” Sgt. Gordon Hughes, Chateh RCMP.

    Construction of the rink was completed on Nov,?2018. A hockey-tape-cutting ceremony took place on January?28,?2019?at?10?a.m. and was followed by a puck drop on the first game of the season between Dene Tha’ Community School students, Council, and RCMP members.

    Jan 28, 2019

    An Indigenous youth homeless project in Hamilton will start taking in clients on Friday, more than a year after being announced.

    The Endaayaang project, meaning ‘Our Home’ in Ojibwe, was announced in November 2017 and is one of 12 projects across the country aimed at youth homelessness.

    The project’s long process to get to?the point it can house youth is a combination of deliberate care in creating a culturally sensitive program and some unexpected hurdles finding and getting approvals for a site.
