(Updated)It was a violent morning in Hamilton. One man is dead after a shooting at a downtown apartment building. It happened at 95 Hess Street, just behind our studios. Police taped off a large portion of the block including the CHCH News parking lot looking for evidence.Kate Carnegie reports.Police aren’t saying much but residents say they haven’t felt safe for a while:   “No, I don’t feel safe here. I haven’t felt safe here in months,” said one resident.Just before 4:30am, police were called to 95 Hess Street. Paramedics confirm they treated one man with gun shot wounds. Late Friday afternoon, that man died from his wounds. Another man was taken to hospital with minor injuries but has since been released and is in police custody.Matt Kavanagh of the Hamilton Police Homicide Unit: “There was one report of shots fired when officers responded and that’s the only report we got doctors couldn’t determine a cause of death so we will wait for the pathologist to do it for us.”“There were two knives and a screw driver in an air vent in the building across the street.”Q: “Does this have anything to do with this investigation?”Kavanagh: “I am not going to comment on that. As you can see we have many searchers out here and they are gathering anything they find.”Residents say that violence is getting worse in the area and often see drug deals happening inside their building here on Hess St.“Yes, there are a lot of drugs from other tenants.” said another resident.“It is weird people coming in and out, all different people all the time.”“This building over here you can walk through at any time of day and run into 1 to 10 drug dealers.”Q: “Do you feel safe living here?”“Ummm, not at night. I would suggest stay home at night.”Residents say police are called to this building on a regular basis. but say they have never seen this much police activity in the area.“Not this much no.

The new shelters, which will house 20 families, or 129 refugees, in the Middle Camps area, are the concrete expression of the pledge by the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) to re-house all those refugees whose homes had been destroyed in the strife and who have no alternative accommodation.By 31 May, a total of 1,134 shelters, home to more than 10,049 refugee and non-refugee Palestinians, had been destroyed or damaged beyond repair in the Gaza Strip since the start of the conflict in September 2000, according to UNRWA figures.The agency has already provided homeless families waiting for their new homes with emergency assistance in the form of tents, blankets, mats, kitchen utensils and food parcels. The construction project itself has also served to alleviate some of the hardships felt in the Gaza Strip, where unemployment is exceptionally high, by providing around 10,000 man-days of temporary employment for labourers, builders, and tradesmen.The shelters opened today in Deir El-Balah were funded by donations from the Arab Popular Committee in the Syrian Arab Republic and by non-earmarked contributions to the emergency appeals. The total cost of the project, including infrastructure work, was approximately $455,000. read more

THE CANADIAN PRESS/Paul Chiasson Harper urges Canada to stay the course, while Trudeau urges opposite LAVAL, Que. – One day after Stephen Harper crashed a Liberal stronghold in Montreal, Justin Trudeau returned the favour Monday, rallying supporters in the heart of Conservative country and taking aim at the government’s economic record.Harper’s first promise of the 2015 campaign, a $60-million incentive for businesses willing to develop skilled apprentices, stayed true to his lower-taxes, more-jobs mantra — as well as his stay-the-course message.“Analysts are predicting good growth for this economy into the future, as long as we stay on track,” Harper said during the day’s first campaign stop at a factory in Laval, Que.“It is a time to stick to our plan, make wise investments, control our spending, lower taxes and make sure our fiscal situation is balanced and strong.”Trudeau begged to differ.Harper has presided over eight successive federal deficits and has not made good on his economic commitments, the Liberal leader told an enthusiastic Calgary crowd.“He has failed to live up to his promise to grow the economy, because he insists on giving opportunities and tax breaks to the wealthiest Canadians,” Trudeau said.“Mr. Harper’s time is up, and it’s time we had a better government.”Conspicuous by his absence was Tom Mulcair, who had been expected to keep a low profile until the first leaders’ debate Thursday. But an event scheduled for Tuesday in Montreal suggests the NDP leader is poised to step into the ring.The Canadian economy remained a central theme of the Tory tour Monday.Harper said a re-elected Conservative government would increase and extend its apprenticeship job creation tax credit, first introduced in 2006, boosting the maximum to $2,500 from $2,000 and applying it to four full years of apprenticeship training.By encouraging businesses to enlist and train more apprentices, the measure would help address Canada’s long-standing skilled labour shortage and create more jobs in the long run, Harper said.But with the economy having struggled for much of the year — it contracted over the first five months to the point some say it was in recession — Harper faced pointed questions about where Canada’s new growth would come from, amid soaring household debt, sliding oil prices and a stalled manufacturing sector.Harper blamed the economy’s ills on “temporary” factors outside Canada’s borders and beyond its control — slow growth in the U.S. and problems in Europe and China.He insisted the Conservative plan of lower taxes, belt-tightening and striving for budgetary balance is working.“That’s what we’re doing, that’s what all the analysts — credible analysts — in the world think we should be doing and now is not the time to get off that track,” he said.“Prospects for growth across the Canadian economy — you talk to the manufacturing sector, they’re very positive. Analysts are predicting good growth for this economy into the future as long as we stay on track.”The stop in Laval was Harper’s second in Quebec since the campaign began, following his kick-off rally Sunday in Montreal.On Monday, he once again urged Quebecers to support the Tories as a way to ensure they would have influence in Ottawa.Harper warned against the risk of electing another batch of opposition MPs — and took particular aim at Thomas Mulcair’s NDP, which holds more than 50 seats in the province.“This group of NDP MPs, during the last four years, are the most ineffective group of any group of MPs in history,” said Harper. “There’s not a single star among Mulcair’s caucus in Quebec.”That remark followed the pitch he made Sunday night to nationalists in Quebec, where his party only won five seats in 2011.“For us Conservatives, Quebec nationalism — nationalism that does not lead to the impasse of separation — is not a threat,” Harper told the Montreal rally.“It is the expression of a deep pride in our past and a solid trust in our future. And I ask you that in the next election to put this nationalism, this solidarity, at the service of a stronger Quebec at the heart of a government that’s solid, stable, national, majority and Conservative.”Harper also said Monday that the election campaign would not cost Canada a seat at the talks seeking to establish a massive international partnership billed as the backbone of future global trade in the Pacific Rim.Canada will continue to negotiate a deal as part of the long-promised 12-country Trans-Pacific Partnership, Harper promised, a response to international reports Monday suggesting the talks would not wait for the campaign to end.The partnership, “should it be concluded, will in our view form the fundamental trading network of the entire Asia-Pacific region,” Harper said.“It is important that Canada remain at the table; we will remain at the table during this election campaign … and we will make sure that should there be a deal, we will get the best possible deal for this country.”Harper said negotiators would continue to defend Canadian interests, notably the country’s supply management system, which protects dairy producers.Harper also stopped in at a rally in Kingston, Ont., on Monday before steering towards the Toronto area for an evening rally at a golf course in Ajax, east of the city.But things didn’t go smoothly. Mechanical problems with one of the Conservative campaign buses forced party staffers and journalists to switch vehicles in Laval before resuming the trip to Kingston.Follow @AndyBlatchford on Twitter read more

OSU coaches Tony Alford (left) and Zach Smith stand together before the Buckeyes game against Rutgers on Oct. 1. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorWhile appearing on Columbus area radio station 105.7 The Zone, former Ohio State wide receiver coach and recruiting coordinator Zach Smith said athletic director Gene Smith knew about the domestic abuse allegations made against him in 2015. Zach Smith said he found out about the allegation from October 2015 from Gene Smith. He was told, “to be on the next flight home” when he was on the road recruiting by Ohio State’s athletic director. Zach Smith said in the interview that Gene Smith found out about the allegations because he believes “the Powell Police Department contacted Ohio State” and not Urban Meyer specifically. He also said many people knew about the allegations that were brought to the police department and that Meyer’s statement during Big Ten Media Days was a reaction to the allegation that he was arrested in 2015, which he said never happened.  On ESPN, Zach Smith said that if Meyer lost his job because of these allegations, “it would be dead wrong” and that he doesn’t know “what else Urban Meyer could have done.”Breaking silence for the first time since he was fired from Ohio State on July 23, Zach Smith said he never committed domestic abuse against his ex-wife Courtney Smith, calling the relationship “volatile” and “toxic.” In the interview with 105.7 The Zone, he said there were times where he would have to restrain her or “defensively move out of the situation.” Zach Smith also said there were times he would have to sleep at Ohio State’s football offices.Zach Smith said he does not think the situation involving him and his ex-wife Courtney should have led to him being fired from his position with the team. “I don’t think it was warranted,” Smith said in the radio interview. “The problem was it was going to be unfair for the players, the fans, the whole university, to go through the media uproar.”He said he still believes that nothing he did was illegal and, “it was behind closed doors between a husband and wife.” Meyer released a statement on Twitter saying that he knew about the 2015 allegations involving Zach Smith and that he took appropriate action at the time.When Zach Smith read Meyer’s statement on ESPN, he said “that’s who he is right there, it was just, accurate.”This story was updated at 6:33 p.m. to include quotes from Zach Smith’s ESPN interview. read more

first_imgDownload AudioPope Francis’ address to Congress is tomorrow, and if his speeches in Washington Wednesday are an indication, Alaska’s congressional delegation is likely to hear the pontiff say things they disagree with. This is especially true for U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan, who says he’s not convinced human activity is a major cause of climate change.Sullivan describes himself as a life-long Catholic, and he is getting a double dose of pope this week. He called from Catholic University, a few miles north of Capitol Hill, where the senator, with thousands of other people, was waiting for the pope to appear and celebrate Mass.“If you saw where we were right now, we’re a nation of believers,” he said. “You see people of all different faiths and creeds out in this audience right now. I think it’s just very exciting.”At the White House in the morning, the pope devoted about a third of his speech to climate change, which he says is a problem that can’t be left to future generations.“When it comes to the care of our common home, we are living at a critical moment of history,” Pope Francis said. “We still have time to make the change needed to bring about a sustainable and integral development, for we know that things can change.”Sullivan says he hears that and more.“Well, look I mean, I listen to what he has to say. A lot of his message, though, is about the sanctity of life and taking care of the least fortunate in society, which is a long-held conviction and belief of the Catholic Church.”Sullivan says it’s important to listen to all of the pope’s messages, and beyond that, to what the pope represents.“Particularly the issues of the most vulnerable in society and focusing on that,” Sullivan said.Does that affect him as a senator,  since the pope has called for reforming political and economic systems to help the poor?“Well I think if you listen to the message it’s a little –” Sullivan broke away for a moment to note a sighting of Jeb Bush in the audience.”You know, the media is trying to make this very selective. The teachings are much broader.”Sullivan says he hopes the pope learns from his American visit, too. The senator says the pope should see that, unlike in Europe, American churches are still full on Sundays.“And we’re a nation that has probably done more than any other country in the world, through a market-based economy, raising people out of poverty in ways that no other country in the world has done.”Sullivan believes in reducing federal regulation and growing the economy, which he has offered as a solution to the nation’s budget woes and the way to help Alaska’s poor get off welfare.If the pope were to learn that from America, it would be an about-face. The pontiff, in a encyclical letter this year, urged people to reject a “magical conception of the market, which would suggest that problems can be solved simply by an increase in the profits of companies or individuals.”The pope’s visit challenges politicians of all stripes, on the right for their economic and environmental policies, on the left for their support of legal abortion. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, a Republican presidential candidate, divides the message. Rubio told Fox News that as a Catholic, he believes the pope on theological matters.“He’s infallible on those decisions. That does not extend to political issues like the economy,” Rubio said.last_img read more
