Irresponsible Pet Owner
Yesterday while walking in the Parking lot of Osborne Leisure Centre, I saw a man allowed his medium sized speckled brown dog - it looks like a young dog - poop in the middle of the lot which was almost empty because it was around 7 - 7:30 p.m. and never picked it up. He walked along the street took the dog off its leash and the dog ran and scared a couple little girls playing in the front yard in the Manitoba Housing units. The two girls were screaming and he walked gingerly to take the dog away. The children's guardian did not respond to their screams until the man walked off with the dog.
That was upsetting. This is the kind of irresponsibility that can happen when people allow dogs in rental apartments. Pet lovers expect everyone to love to their pets.
Well not everyone is animal lovers in that way. It does not mean they hate animals. It's just that they may not be interested in impounding an animal by trapping them in houses where they do not belong. Animals belong outdoors. If they were meant to be in houses they would have learned to build houses for themselves but nature has provided them with the necessary skills at surviving on their own.
Don't get me started.

Pets in rental property

I believe that people who want to move into rental apartments with pets should not be allowed to do so. It is actually cruel for a person to keep an animal cooped up in high rise apartments. If a person wants to keep a pet in their home then they should get their own home.

If pets have to be in apartments then they should have apartments strictly for pet owners. Unfortunately not everyone wants to be around pets and their droppings. There are many newcomers who are not accustomed to having pets live in homes. Some religions believe that pets are unclean and not made to be living in such close quarters with human beings. It is not hygienic. And who knows when a pet will become stir crazy and hurt someone living in the apartment.

I think people have gone too far with pets. No one's stopping them from living in a dog or cat house but should all of us have to put up with that. I get sick if I am eating and a commercial comes on with a dribbling dog eating. It's disgusting. I do not hate animals but I strongly believe that animals do not belong in a house with humans. There is something quite nasty about that. I do not think landlords should be forced to rent their homes to people who wants to use it as a dog or cat house. Let them get their own homes. Animals destroy a person's property. They smell funny and when the owner moves out it may be hard for the landlord to rent to anyone else without going to a lot of trouble to get the stench of animals in the home. I'm sorry if I offend pet lovers but the majority should not dominate the minority.

Organized by : Solidarity Committee for Ethiopian Political prisoners. (Winnipeg branch)

Since 1991, a total of fifty- eight Ethiopian nationals have been abducted from their homes or “disappeared” and are believed jailed or killed by Ethiopian state authorities. These disappeared include trade union leaders, journalists, and members of political parties, as well as teachers and students.

The solidarity committee for Ethiopian political prisoners (SOCEPP) is a human rights organization with chapters in over a dozen countries. SOCEPP is calling for vigils to be held world wide to acknowledge these innocent Ethiopians as well as men and women in other countries, who face persecution for their political views.

Ali Saeed the secretary for the SOCCEP Canada has organized the vigil in Winnipeg, A former political prisoner and torture victim himself, Saeed explains the vigil will begin with speeches by community representatives. “There will be an array of candles that participants will be encouraged to light,” he says.” Each candle will be labeled with one of the names of the disappeared.”

In addition, Saeed indicates, there will be information tables set aside with information, petitions for signing and other relevant materials.

Filling out the evening will be authentic Ethiopian music and a traditional meal prepared by locals from the Ethiopian – Canadian community.

Guests will be encouraged to donate $10 each but no one will be turned away based on inability to pay. To Ali Saeed and his fellow organizers, it is the coming together of friends in the wider community for the important event that will make the vigil worthwhile .

“An injustice to any of us is an injustice to all of us,” he says. “This is a good opportunity for all of people of good will to unite behind a worthy cause.”

Aliens Are Here
July 28, 2008


The provincial government has established a Commission on Tuition Fees and Accessibility to Post-secondary Education to review access to post-secondary education in Manitoba including tuition fees and student financial assistance, Advanced Education and Literacy Minister Diane McGifford announced today.

“As part of our government’s ongoing commitment to ensure post-secondary education in Manitoba is accessible and affordable, I am appointing University of Toronto Prof. Ben Levin as commissioner of this review,” McGifford said. “He is a respected academic and administrator familiar with post‑secondary education systems throughout Canada including Manitoba’s. Accordingly, Dr. Levin’s expertise is well-suited to the task.”

The one-person commission was first announced this past spring. The terms of reference include a review of research on the relationship of tuition fees to university accessibility; analysis of data on university participation rates with particular attention to under-represented groups such as Aboriginal, rural, northern and mature students; and analysis of current tuition and ancillary fees in Manitoba compared to other provinces and countries.

The commissioner will also review student aid from federal, provincial and institution-based sources and determine its impact on accessibility; discuss the contribution of student fees to overall post‑secondary education financing compared to other jurisdictions; and review the scope and role of provincial education tax credits. Recommendations for public policy and legislation are expected to be available in March 2009.

Levin will consult with interested parties including universities, colleges, student groups and key external stakeholders. Members of the public may also send submissions to

Levin is currently a professor and Canada Research chair in the department of theory and policy studies at the Ontario Institute of Studies in Education, University of Toronto. From late 2004 until early 2007, he was deputy minister of education for Ontario. From 1999 through 2002, he was deputy minister of advanced education and deputy minister of education, training and youth in Manitoba.

“Levin is highly regarded both nationally and internationally for his work in educational policy and reform”, said McGifford.

Jeffrey Schnoor, QC, has been named the new Manitoba deputy minister of justice and deputy attorney general, effective Aug. 2.

“Jeff’s dedication to public service and the law will be a real asset in leading the department,” said Attorney General Dave Chomiak. “The depth of experience in many aspects of law and its development that he brings to the position will be invaluable.”

Schnoor was called to the Manitoba bar in 1978 and began his career in private practice, becoming a partner with a large Winnipeg law firm. In 1986, he became the executive director of the Manitoba Law Reform Commission, where he worked on virtually every area of the law within provincial jurisdiction.

In 1997, he joined the provincial government as the director of the Prosecutions and Criminal Justice Policy Branch and, in 2005, became the assistant deputy minister of the Courts Division of Manitoba Justice.

Schnoor is also very active in the community. He spent 13 years on the board of United Way of Winnipeg and has served on the boards of the Winnipeg Library Foundation and the St. Boniface General Hospital. He is a life member of the Manitoba Bar Association’s council and served as president of the Uniform Law Conference of Canada and the Federation of Law Reform Agencies of Canada. He recently presented a workshop in Tanzania to East African lawyers at the request of the Canadian Bar Association.

Schnoor replaces Ron Perozzo, who is retiring.

Shriners Safe Cruise Night Parade in Winnipeg

Last Sunday, 19th July, 2008 the Shriners sponsored its safe cruise night parade of vintage cars starting from Government House to Portage Avenue and ending at Grant Park in front of Pony Coral restaurant. There were many curious onlookers and avid car hobbyists waiting at the finish line to see all the cars at close range.
I noticed only one female driver and one Black driver. I guess this hobby has not caught on in a big way with these two cultural groups.

The Potential for Central Park as an Urban Market is Huge
Thanks to the people at United Church, Welcome Place and the Central Park Neighbourhood Association, this Park has been transformed from a drug dealer's haven and a drunk hotel to a place where families can gather and commiserate safely again.
Although the market had a shaky start off, I feel it is better this year and if the organizers can get the Farmer's who sell at the St. Norbert Market and other small farmers around the Winnipeg Area to make Central Park one of their outlets, there will be more activity going on there. We Winnipeggers love our fresh foods in the summer because we have to eat frozen stuff most of the winter or stale food that travels thousands of miles to get to us. We need easier access to farmer's markets. Not everyone can drive to St. Norbert.
Last Thursday while walking home, I saw a farmers market set up by River and Osborne in front of the Subway. That was a surprise to be. One of the farmers said they could not use the Exchange District this year because of renovations going on there. Anyway, I think they have relocated a block away from the the Exchange venue.
Last Saturday I attended the AIDS Awareness fair at the Central Park with music, cultural performances, information booths and hot dogs stands. It was well organized and well attended. Good for those who organized the event. I understand it is a loose group of interested individuals with the support of organizations that cater to AIDS.
I know lots of people still see Central Park as a scarey place. If you are one of those people, it means you have not checked it out later, why not go down there any Friday evening or Saturday morning and support our local business people who are ordinary men and women trying to make a living, I must say mostly newcomers of African ancestry. Check it out man.

Degree-holding immigrants less likely to find work than native-born Canadians: study

By The Canadian Press

July 18th, 2008

OTTAWA - Some university-educated immigrants were less likely to be employed in 2007 than their Canadian-born counterparts, a new study shows.

Statistics Canada said university-educated immigrants between the ages of 25 and 54, who arrived in Canada in the last five years, had a more difficult time finding work than native-born Canadians.

Native-born Canadians holding a university degree had an employment rate of 90.7 per cent. The study found that immigrants who were educated in western countries were more likely to find work than those educated elsewhere. Immigrants' employment rate varied depending on their country of origin:

-United States: 77.8 per cent

-Europe: 73.8 per cent

-Asia: 65.5 per cent

-Latin America: 59.7 per cent

-Africa: 50.9 per cent

But even immigrants who received their degree at a Canadian university had lower employment rates than native-born Canadians.

Between 2002 and 2007, about 28,000 core-working-age immigrants received a degree in Canada. Despite their Canadian education, their employment rate in 2007 was 75.3 per cent - lower than the 90.7 per cent average among their Canadian born, university-educated counterparts.

The study also found that the employment gap between degree-holding immigrants and the Canadian-born narrowed the longer an immigrant has been in Canada. University-educated immigrants who have been in Canada for more than a decade had employment rates comparable to native-born Canadians, Statistics Canada says.

Studies have shown that it is often difficult for newcomers to Canada to find work because of language barriers and their foreign credentials not being recognized.

The study also looked at employment rates in Ontario, British Columbia and Quebec - the three provinces where most immigrants choose to settle.

Quebec had the most immigrants holding a Canadian university degree. British Columbia had the most Asian immigrants and the most immigrants holding a degree from an Asian university. Immigrants in Ontario most commonly held Asian or Canadian degrees.

The study found immigrants with Canadian degrees in Ontario and B.C. had employment rates similar to those of Canadian-born graduates, regardless of their landing period. But in Quebec, immigrants who have been in Canada since 1997 had an employment rate below native-born Canadians.

The employment rate among degree-holding immigrants who landed in Canada before 1997 was close to that of their Canadian-born counterparts, Statistics Canada said. The only exception was the 61,000 Asian-educated immigrants in Ontario who arrived prior to 1997, who had a lower employment rate than native-born Canadians.

Meanwhile, the study found that immigrants aged 25 to 54 who held a post-secondary certificate or diploma were less likely to be employed than a similarly-educated Canadian born at home.

Socca Reggae Festival - July 11, 12, 13, 2008

The rain washed out the Socca Reggae Festival this year. It rained on the Friday evening and Saturday all day but Sunday the sun came out and so did the people. Considering everything it was not a bad showing. However, many watched from the sidelines too cheap to pay the $5.00 to enter the event.

It was disappointing for me because there was no real talent from outside Winnipeg except for the Limbo dancer. She did a fantastic job and was the only act I thoroughly enjoyed. Lolita is from Barbados and a very talented woman. She had the children all trying out their limbo styles. Perhaps she might be available for Folklorama as well.

I know we must support our local musicians but sometimes it's nice to hear something different. The local performers were great at what they did but it would have been more intersting with some outside talent as well. Having said that, perhaps the outside talents had to be cancelled because of the weather.

Big up for the MC he was an entertaining act all by himself. He said he was new to the city but he talked as if he was around here all the time. Good job.

The illustrious EMCEE trying to do the limbo - it took to helpers to hold the bar higher than the pole (LOL)

University of Winnipeg Dream Maker Dr. Lloyd Axworthy
Ever since Dr. Axworthy took over as Chancellor of the University of Winnipeg that institution has made great strides to link University with community, to provide opportunities for international students and to take a special interest in refugee children in helping them to reach their educational potential.
Dr. Ax worthy has always been a keen human rights activist and has strong ideas of what Canada's role should be on the international scale.
At the last convocation of the University of Winnipeg the first of the lost boys and girls of Sudan walked across the stage to receive their degrees. They were Nyuol Justin Yach Arop, David Maybior Atem and Michael Mayen.
Dr. Axworthy called these students the peace ambassadors in the world.
Atem was instrumental in forming a group of the Lost Boys and Girls of Sudan here in Winnipeg. They share their stories of survival freely with anyone who would listen and they all want people to know that they were children left to fend for themselves because of war. The leaders of these groups of children were no more than 15 years old. Their stories are gruesome to listen to and those of us who are over protective of our children could not imagine what they went through. They are here and their message is one of peace. They do not want to see what happened to them happen to other children in any part of the world. They want peace. They want to protect children.
Without the strong support of the University of Winnipeg and the Sudanese community they LBGS will not have achieved what they have. Thanks University of Winnipeg and the people of Winnipeg for caring.
Socca Reggae Festival
I don't know what's happening at the Old Market Square today because it is raining cats and dogs. I have not heard whether the festival has been postponed, cancelled or what. I doubt whether anyone would want to be out there is this blustery cold weather. IT is just too bad that we have to cancel stuff because of poor weather.
A few weeks ago the Multiculturalism Day had to be cancelled after all the planning that went into that. Now this. The gods must be punishing us for being so careless with our environment. This kind of weather is not normal.
If you hear something just give me a shout out.

Great Festivals Around the Province to Visit Including the Folk Festival: Robinson
Culture, Heritage, Tourism and Sport Minister Eric Robinson announced the province will provide a total of $185,800 this year in assistance to 42 Manitoba community festivals and invited everyone to check out Manitoba festivals including the Folk Festival which starts today and has been running for 35 years.

“Many festivals include a cultural focus providing a unique educational experience that helps Manitobans of all ages learn about our province,” said Robinson. “Celebrating our cultural roots and historic past shows us the cultural diversity that makes Manitoba such a great place to live and visit.”

In Manitoba, the types of festival range from family fun days, powwows, cultural festivals, country fairs, rodeos and western weekends.

“I congratulate the Folk Festival on 35 years of success,” said Science, Technology, Energy and Mines Minister Jim Rondeau at the Folk Festival launch today. “This unique Manitoba tradition brings together dedicated volunteers and music enthusiasts and, for some, marks the official start of summer celebrations.”

Robinson noted that a new festival celebrating its first year of funding is the Sagkeeng First Nation Treaty Days Celebration, which runs from July 28 to Aug. 3. This long-standing celebration with strong community and volunteer support includes a fishing derby, square-dance competition, children’s activities, truck mud bog, horseshoe tournament, canoe races, marathon, triathlon and golf tournament.

First introduced in 2003, the Community Festival Support program provides consultative and financial assistance to rural and northern community festivals which are recognized as being signature annual events in their communities.

The next intake for winter festivals will be Nov. 1, 2008, a change from the previous Dec. 1 deadline. Application information is available at regional offices of Manitoba Culture, Heritage, Tourism and Sport.

The province has also been a proud supporter of the Winnipeg Folk Festival for all 35 years of its existence. There are over 45,000 admissions to this four-day festival of people and music with attendees arriving from all over the globe to listen to the world’s best music.

Economic impact studies in 2001 showed that out-of-town visitors to the Folk Festival spent more than $4.5 million in Manitoba. The Winnipeg Folk Festival receives the maximum grant of $90,000 through the Major Arts Festivals Operating Support program, which has a budget of $448,000.

IPhone is going to cost big bucks

The IPhone that Apple is about to launch will cost a pretty penny. I think what Apple is doing is great. Let's separate the boys from the men here. Our young people keep these big corporations in business paying all kinds of dollars for phones they use to call their friends and surfing the net to find free music and chat with friends. It costs money. Maybe they would find better uses for their money and time. Businesses can afford the cost because they profit from these gadgets. So I would say let's get over it. No one is holding a gun to anyone's head to shell out that kind of money for a phone.

No help for Canadian in US Prison
Prime Minister Harper is not going to lift a finger to help the boy in the American jail who claims he is being tortured. They are using the frequent flyer strategy on him - first time I heard that term. It means they wake him up every two or three hours for questioning and move him to another room. Duh... you do that enough time, he is liable to say anything to get some sleep. People also become disoriented due to lack of sleep. Where is the justice?

Air Canada Cuts Staff
Air Canada is cutting back on hostesses. They blame the oil crisis for shutting down some of their centres. From what I heard the hostesses in Winnipeg are all seniors and are likely to bump their juniors and get jobs but that may require moving to bigger cities with higher costs of living. What's going to happen? Will they increase the wages of these workers to help mitigate the cost and inconvenience? I don't think so. They are probably hoping these workers will decide to quit and find something else so that they can then hire other staff for less wages.

Worker Injured on the Job
A young person has been killed on the job in Winnipeg. He was run over by one of the machines they were using, I think it was Bobcat. According to Workers Compensation Board the percentage of worker mostly young workers have been injured or fatally injured on the job.

Why is this happening? Are employers so eager to get people on the job that they fail to do the proper training or are younger people more likely to engage in risky behaviours. There ought to be some kind of research into this trend.
