New childsoldier plan expected at Vancouver peacekeeping summit

first_imgOTTAWA – Canada has been quietly championing an initiative aimed at preventing the recruitment and use of child soldiers, which is expected to be unveiled at a major peacekeeping summit in Vancouver next month.Australia’s ambassador to the United Nations, Gillian Bird, revealed the initiative in New York on Wednesday while addressing a UN special committee on behalf of Canada, Australia and New Zealand.“We welcome the forthcoming launch of the Vancouver Principles on peacekeeping and the prevention of the recruitment and use of child soldiers,” Bird told the UN’s special political and decolonization committee“These principles will provide concrete steps on how to prioritize and further operationalize child protection within UN peacekeeping.”The Liberal government refused Thursday to discuss the initiative, although the title suggests it will be rolled out when Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan hosts a peacekeeping summit in Vancouver on Nov. 14-15.But a senior government official said Canada has been championing the measure, which comes after the Canadian military in February issued the first-ever guidelines for dealing with child soldiers.Those guidelines were developed in concert with the Romeo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative and were intended to ensure Canadian troops are properly trained and emotionally prepared for dealing with child soldiers.The presence of child soldiers on the battlefield is a potential minefield for militaries like Canada, as the French learned the hard way in January when they were criticized for killing a 10-year-old boy in Mali.While the French military said the boy was acting as a lookout for an armed group suspected of planting improvised-explosive devices, the killing marred its counter-terrorism mission in the African country.The UN released a report earlier this month that found more than 8,000 children were killed or injured in conflicts around the world in 2016 and thousands of children had been recruited or used by warring factions.The number of children in Syria who were recruited or used in conflict more than doubled to 851 verified cases, according to the report, while more than 1,900 were recruited or used in Somalia.There were also more than 1,000 verified cases of children being recruited or used in South Sudan and 442 reported cases in Mali. Both those countries are considered to be strong candidates for a future Canadian peacekeeping mission.The UN said it has been trying to talk to rebel groups and other non-government factions in Mali, Sudan, the Central African Republic and other places to try to reduce the use of child soldiers.The unveiling of a new initiative aimed at eliminating the use of underage soldiers could help take some pressure off Canada and the Liberal government at the Vancouver summit.The high-level meeting is only supposed to be open to officials from countries that have made concrete pledges to peacekeeping missions.The Trudeau government promised last summer to make up to 600 soldiers and 150 police officers available to the UN for future peacekeeping missions, but have yet to make any concrete commitments.Instead, the number of Canadian peacekeepers deployed around the world has actually shrunk to its smallest point in recent memory — lower even than under the previous Conservative government.— Follow @leeberthiaume on Twitter.last_img read more

Architect calls out premier for focusing on her shoes instead of her

first_imgWINNIPEG – An award-winning architect says she has dealt with much worse in her professional life than a joke Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister made about her fashion choices, but she feels compelled to call out his focus on her footwear over her work.Pallister began his annual state-of-the-province speech Thursday by thanking Johanna Hurme, chairwoman of the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce.“I want to thank Johanna for dressing up,” he said to the audience. “I want to thank her for those heels. I notice they’re a foot high.”He later said it was an awkward remark that was meant to be a humorous nod to his own towering height.He also made reference to Hurme helping him with his food as his arm heals from a recent hiking injury.Hurme said in a statement Friday that she doesn’t think Pallister’s comments were ill-intended and that the moment wasn’t that personally significant.“The unfortunate reality is that I would not be in the position that I am in today, as an architect and as a business owner, should I not have dealt with much worse situations than this in the past,” she wrote.But she said she couldn’t stay silent, given the national attention the comment received.Before Pallister made his poorly received remark, Hurme had just finished a presentation on sprawl and the importance of dealing with the province’s infrastructure deficit.“And while I believe the premier was attempting to acknowledge my presence in the room, he unfortunately chose to do so, not based on my work or content of that presentation, but rather make a joke about the fact I was wearing tall shoes,” she said.“This, combined with the fact that the event took place in front of nearly 1,200 business leaders of our province, does require it to be called out and addressed.”Hurme said she shared her thoughts frankly in a phone call with Pallister and he expressed his regrets.Jocelyn Thorpe, an associate professor of women’s and gender studies at the University of Manitoba, said Pallister’s comments point to a broader problem.“It’s harder for women to navigate the world as people with minds as well as with bodies,” she said.“There’s a higher expectation that women put more effort into how they look. Men put on a suit and they’re dressed up, but women have many more steps that they’re expected to fulfil in terms of their hair and face and clothes.”The senior curator at the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto said Pallister focused on a garment that has for centuries been associated with what men find sexually desirable in women.“High heels have become the icon of femininity,” said Elizabeth Semmelhack.They were initially worn by men battling on horseback as far back as 10th-century Persia, but by 17th-century Europe they were fashionable for both genders.They became narrower and higher for women to fit with the beauty standards at the time.The more diminutive a woman was, the more attractive she was thought to be. The shoes angled a woman’s feet in such a way that all but the points of her toes were hidden by her skirts, making her appear smaller, said Semmelhack.Sky-high shoes also played into the historical notion that men are inherently rational and women irrational.“That has really stuck with us,” said Semmelhack.She noted how modern women are often judged either for wearing sensible shoes that are seen as too dowdy or for teetering on stilettos seen as too sexy.“(Pallister’s) comments are comments that have a very, very long-standing problematic connection to how women are assessed, that if they wear heels, that choice of footwear is irrational and at the same time, highly eroticized.”— By Lauren Krugel in Calgarylast_img read more

F35 stealth fighter Super Hornet top list of potential new fighters for

first_imgOTTAWA – There are five potential replacements for Canada’s aging CF-18 fleet. Here’s a closer look at what’s known about the contenders:F-35 — Lockheed Martin, U.S.Largely overlooked in Tuesday’s news about a new competition to find a CF-18 replacement was confirmation that the F-35 is back in the running. The move represents the latest twist in the stealth fighter’s history in Canada, which included a promise by the previous Conservative government to buy it in 2010 and Justin Trudeau’s promise in 2015 to do precisely the opposite. The F-35 continues to face some developmental challenges and questions about cost, but a number of allies are already receiving it. For all those reasons and more, the stealth fighter can again be considered a front-runner.Super Hornet — Boeing, U.S.The Super Hornet is a newer, larger and much more modern variant of the CF-18s that Canada operates, and is primarily used by the U.S. Navy and Australia. It was first flown in the 1990s; proponents note that, unlike the F-35, it has a proven track record. That appeared to sell the Liberal government, which planned to buy “interim” 18 Super Hornets until Boeing launched a trade complaint against Canadian rival Bombardier. Now, because of its older technology and uncertain production future, and the aforementioned trade dispute, the Super Hornet could be in for a tough battle in what promises to be a lengthy competition.Typhoon — Eurofighter, European consortiumThe Typhoon has largely flown under the radar, but is built by a consortium of European companies that includes Airbus, which recently offered to buy a majority stake in Bombardier’s C-Series passenger jets. It’s too early to tell whether that will be an advantage, but it can’t hurt. Still, the Typhoon, which is operated by Germany, Spain, Italy, the U.K. and several Middle Eastern countries, doesn’t have a long track record.Rafale — Dassault, FranceThe Rafale has been used by the French military since the mid-2000s, and was recently sold to India, Egypt and Qatar. The aircraft has flown missions in Afghanistan, Libya, Mali, Iraq and Syria. Dassault’s main pitch is offering to transfer intellectual property and create manufacturing jobs in Canada. But dissenters have questioned the Rafale’s compatibility with North America’s air defence system, Norad, as well as its cost.Gripen — Saab, SwedenThe Gripen was built almost entirely in Sweden and is likely the dark horse in a competition to replace the CF-18s. The aircraft does not have a long operational history and is not widely used outside of Sweden, but is said to be relatively inexpensive to operate. Like with the Rafale, there are questions about compatibility with Norad.last_img read more

Absent Liberal MP defends absence from Ottawa in House of Commons speech

first_imgOTTAWA — A Liberal MP who’s stayed out of the House of Commons for months says he’s been busy with other important work.Montreal MP Nicola Di Iorio appeared in the Commons Tuesday to defend himself with a scattered speech that included talk about the historical mistreatment of Italian-Canadians.First elected to represent St. Leonard-St. Michel in 2015, Di Iorio has been sending mixed messages about his future in politics since April, when he announced he was leaving but without giving a timeline.He says he raised the issue in the House in June before heading back to his riding to talk to his constituents about his desire to leave office, and said he wanted to find a way to continue his work.Di Iorio says his work continued throughout the summer and he had to cancel his vacation plans. It was sometime in August, he says, that his concern about representing his constituents was made public.In December, he says, he was told he would be absent from the House for a few weeks where he would focus on various tasks and would not receive a salary during this time.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Business leaders quit Trump panel he hits back hard

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump on Tuesday ripped into business leaders who resigned from his White House jobs panel — the latest sign that corporate America’s romance with Trump is faltering — after his equivocal response to violence by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia.“They’re not taking their job seriously as it pertains to this country,” the president said at an impromptu news conference at Trump Tower in New York City.After his remarks, a fifth member of his manufacturing panel resigned: AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka, who said in a statement, “We cannot sit on a council for a president who tolerates bigotry and domestic terrorism.”The president denied that his original statement about the violence in Virginia on Saturday — saying “many” sides were to blame, rather than hate groups — was the cause of the departures.“Some of the folks that will leave, they’re leaving out of embarrassment because they make their products outside” the United States, he said as he seemed to double down on his earlier comments.Trump also assailed the CEOs who left on Twitter as “grandstanders” and said he had plenty of executives available to take their place. The president added that he believes economic growth in the U.S. will heal its racial divide.But the parade of departing leaders from the informal panel seems closely linked to how the president responded to events that led to the death of a counter-protester that opposed the white supremacists.Among those who’ve left are the chief executives for Merck, Under Armour and Intel and the president of the Alliance for American Manufacturing.Alliance president Scott Paul, in a tweet, said simply, “I’m resigning from the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative because it’s the right thing for me to do.” Within minutes of the tweet on Tuesday, calls to Paul’s phone were being sent to voicemail.Wal-Mart CEO Doug McMillon joined the chorus, saying in a note Monday to employees, “(We) too felt that he missed a critical opportunity to help bring our country together by unequivocally rejecting the appalling actions of white supremacists.”But McMillon, whose business has customers on all sides of the political spectrum, plans to stay on a separate Trump advisory panel and said that the president’s follow-up remarks on Monday that named white supremacists were a step in the right direction.Corporate leaders have been willing to work with Trump on taxes, trade and reducing regulations, but they’ve increasingly found themselves grappling with cultural and social tensions amid his lightning rod-style of leadership. The CEOs who left the council quickly faced his wrath, while those who have stayed have said it’s important to speak with the president on economic issues.Like several other corporate leaders, Alex Gorsky, chairman and CEO of Johnson & Johnson, said that intolerance and racism have no place in U.S. society but that he intended to stay on the manufacturing council.“We must engage if we hope to change the world and those who lead it,” he said in a statement.A White House official downplayed the importance of the manufacturing council and a separate policy and strategy forum featuring corporate leaders. The official, who insisted on anonymity to discuss private conversations, said the panels were informal rather than a set body of advisers. The departures, the official said, were unlikely to hurt the administration’s plans to overhaul taxes and regulations.Many corporate leaders have faced a lose-lose scenario in which any choice involving politics can alienate customers, not to mention a U.S. president who has shown a willingness to personally negotiate government contracts.Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier, one of only four African-Americans leading a Fortune 500 company, was the first to tender his resignation Monday.Trump criticized Frazier almost immediately Monday over drug prices, and again Tuesday for having factories overseas. Merck has 25,000 U.S. employees in all 50 states and has invested $50 billion in research and development since 2010, primarily in the United States.Then came resignations from Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank and then Intel CEO Brian Krzanich. On Under Armour’s Facebook page Tuesday, customers who supported Trump threatened to boycott the athletic clothier.Austan Goolsbee, the former chief economist for President Barack Obama, said the departures suggest the president’s response to the violence in Charlottesville could alienate those who work for the companies, and those who buy the products and services that they sell.“It’s certainly a sign that Trump’s more controversial stuff isn’t playing well with companies selling to middle America,” said Goolsbee, now a professor at the University of Chicago.There had already been departures from two major councils created by the Trump administration that were tied to its policies.Tesla CEO Elon Musk resigned from the manufacturing council in June, and two other advisory groups to the president, after the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement. Walt Disney Co. Chairman and CEO Bob Iger resigned for the same reason from the President’s Strategic and Policy Forum.The manufacturing jobs council had 28 members initially, but it has shrunk since it was formed earlier this year as executives retire, are replaced, or, as with Frazier, Musk, Plank, Paul and Krzanich, resign.So far, the majority of CEOs and business leaders that are sitting on the two major, federal panels, are condemning racism, but say they want to keep their seats at the table.“Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is unwavering, and we will remain active champions for these efforts,” said a spokesman for Campbell Soup for CEO Denise Morrison. “We believe it continues to be important for Campbell to have a voice and provide input on matters that will affect our industry, our company and our employees in support of growth.”Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg also will remain. So will Michael Dell, the head of his namesake computer company. Both companies contract with the government.Lawrence Summers, once the chief economist at the World Bank and senior Treasury official, wondered when more business leaders will distance themselves from Trump.“After this weekend, I am not sure what it would take to get these CEOs to resign,” he tweeted. “Demonizing ethnic groups? That has happened.” President Donald Trump listens to a question while meeting the media in the lobby of Trump Tower in New York, Tuesday, Aug. 15, 2017.

Women must have their rightful place at the heart of building peace

First, all reports and briefings on countries affected by conflict should seek information on women and girls. “Without relevant information, peacekeeping mandates will never meet the needs of women and girls. Too often, what is not counted, does not count,” he said.Second, all UN peace operations should be held accountable for putting women and girls at the centre of their work.Third, the members of the Council must listen to civil society, and particularly women’s groups, in all deliberations on conflict prevention and peacebuilding.Fourth, it is vital to ensure that there are funds available for these activities, with a minimum of 15 per cent of funding on peace and security to be devoted to programmes that address the needs of women and girls. It is also critical to make full use of the new pooled fund that has been created to channel more resources to women’s organizations working for peace. And fifth, peace negotiations must be made more diverse. After more than 15 years of advocacy, this has not happened. In failing to include women and girls in peacemaking and peacebuilding processes, “we are failing the world.” Mr. Ban cited one research finding that peace accords are 35 per cent more likely to last at least 15 years if women are at the table. “I will never stop, and we must never stop, the urgent drive to bring women into their rightful place at the heart of building peace and security,” he concluded. ‘Commitments must not be simply plans on paper’ – UN Women chiefIn her remarks, Ms. Mlambo-Ngcuka said the ‘women, peace and security’ agenda “must not simply be plans on paper.” Indeed, the Security Council is well positioned to ensure greater accountability and to match words with action. For its part, UN-Women is already responding to many of the findings and recommendations of last year’s global study on women, peace and security, including by contributing to the implementation of the peace operations review.Welcoming the United Nations Peacebuilding Commission’s adoption of a gender strategy, she said the UN Women is also working hard to ensure that the broader United Nations approach to preventing and countering violent extremism engages women’s leadership and respected and promoted women’s rights.Recalling progress for women and girls in recent years, she said that nevertheless, there remain areas of “concern and stagnation.” Atrocities are committed against women and girls in war-ravaged countries, as demonstrated by the abduction of the Chibok girls in Nigeria. There are also extensive reports of abuses committed against Iraqi and Syrian women and girls trapped between ISIL/Da’esh and the military operations against them, including in the current situation in Mosul. “South Sudanese women and girls are raped by armed actors with total impunity, while around the world there were countless examples of extreme political marginalization of women in public life and decision-making,” stated Ms. Mlambo-Ngcuka, adding that Across all conflict and crisis situations, the Council must prioritize women and girls’ protection. The Security Council in October 2000 voting to adopt resolution 1325 (2000), urging an enhanced role for women in preventing conflict, promoting peace and assisting in post-conflict reconstruction within United Nations operations. UN Photo/Milton Grant Mr. Ban acknowledged some progress made on this agenda during his tenure as Secretary-General, such as the creation of UN Women, which amplified women’s voices and created momentum for women’s leadership on peace and security.He said the office of his Special Representative on Sexual Violence in Conflict is focusing international attention on one of the greatest moral challenges of the day time and the Security Council has adopted new resolutions on women, peace and security.Furthermore, last year’s high-level reviews of UN peace operations and peacebuilding architecture, and the global study on women, peace and security, spurred new commitments and determination, he added.“When I became Secretary-General, there were four countries with National Action Plans on Women, Peace and Security. Today, there are 63,” Mr. Ban said, also underscoring that he had also appointed the first female force commander of a peacekeeping mission and the first female Police Advisor.The UN chief also noted that hundreds of thousands of women and girls are being helped and supported by UN programmes in conflict-affected countries, and national and international tribunals have issued verdicts that are historic milestones for gender justice. Many countries have committed to action to prevent and address conflict-related sexual violence.“Perhaps most important of all, we see more inclusive peace processes and peace agreements,” he said, citing the Colombian peace talks that included a group dedicated to gender perspectives and women’s rights.He said he is “painfully aware that despite all these steps, the situation remains far from equitable.” In peace negotiations on Syria or Yemen, there may be one woman at the table or in one delegation. And all this is against a backdrop of women and girls suffering inequalities that are aggravated by conflict, who are targeted for particularly brutal crimes by violent extremist groups including Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL/Da’esh) and Boko Haram. By failing to include women ‘we are failing the world’ – BanTo carry this agenda forward, Mr. Ban urged several specific steps to take. “Women have a vital role to play in preventing conflict and building and maintaining peace. But although this is now widely recognized, far too often, women are prevented from full participation in peacemaking and peacebuilding,” Mr. Ban said during an annual open debate on women, peace and security.“We are all suffering from the effects of this deficit,” he added. The meeting – which was also addressed by the Executive Director of the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women), Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka – was held ahead of the 16th anniversary of the Council’s adoption of resolution 1325 on ‘women and peace and security’ on 31 October 2000. Rita Lopidia, Executive Director of EVE Organization for Women Development, South Sudan, also addressed the Council, speaking on behalf of the Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO) Working Group on Women, Peace and Security.Far too often, women are prevented from full participation in peacemaking and peacebuilding. We are all suffering from the effects of this deficitThe resolution reaffirms the important role of women in the prevention and resolution of conflicts, peace negotiations, peace-building, peacekeeping, humanitarian response and in post-conflict reconstruction and stresses the importance of their equal participation and full involvement in all efforts for the maintenance and promotion of peace and security.

RPMGlobal partnership with Chasm Consulting for Ventsim mine ventilation software

first_imgAs IM’s annual review of ventilation advances goes to the printer comes news of RPMGlobal (RPM) entering into a software integration partnership with Chasm Consulting to enable RPM and Chasm to further develop an integration between the industry leading Chasm mine ventilation software Ventsim™, with RPM’s underground software solutions.RPM’s underground software solutions provide a platform for successful mine planning in underground mines around the world. With the latest in technology innovation at the core of RPM’s software solutions, partnering with Chasm for best-of-breed ventilation software was a natural fit. RPM knows that it is through the connected, digital mine that mining companies will be able to reduce costs, maximise operations, increase productivity and deliver shareholder value. “Our solutions have always put the mining enterprise at the centre to ensure that information across the entire mining value chain is not siloed but shared empowering stakeholders across the business to make informed decisions about their operations. This integration partnership illustrates RPM’s continual drive to only deliver enterprise wide solutions.”Chasm Consulting’s Ventsim product is the leading underground mining ventilation software and was originally introduced to mining operations in 1994 to help visually design, improve and optimise underground ventilation systems. It is now licensed to over 1,000 mine sites, consultants, universities, governments and research agencies around the world.Under the integration agreement, RPM and Chasm will collaboratively develop tight integration between RPM’s Underground Solutions and Chasm’s Ventsim, allowing joint customers to quickly simulate mine ventilation as the mine develops.Commenting on the new software integration partnership, RPM’s CEO and Managing Director Richard Mathews said “We are pleased to have entered into the software integration agreement and partnership with Chasm Consulting that will allow RPM and Chasm to continue their work to develop the integration between our market leading solutions”Mathews concluded “With over 1,000 customers of the Ventsim solution, they are clearly the industry leader in underground mine ventilation and we look forward to furthering the integration of our respective products to deliver real value to our underground mining customers in delivering the digital mine.”RPM has also launched XERAS (XE) Enterprise 2.0 which includes an industry first with the XERAS Analytics module, which will assist the development of the connected, digital mine, allowing mining companies to reduce costs, maximise operations, increase productivity and deliver value. “This is why companies who have a serious cost focus use XERAS Enterprise. Not only is XERAS Enterprise the industry’s leading zero-based budgeting solution, it a true enterprise platform for the cost focused organisation.”Michael Baldwin, EGM Product Strategy, said, “From the recent reporting season it’s official.  The world’s lowest cost producers, mining companies with a real focus on cost, use XERAS.  XERAS Enterprise is the industry’s leading zero-based budgeting solution. With SAP certified integration, XE delivers a live forecasting environment, significantly reducing the time it takes to generate budgets and forecasts, delivering companies an accurate financial position, at any given time.“With a single button click, companies can visually see the complete cost driver tree for a department, a mine or the entire organisation.  “This is incredibly powerful when trying to understand the fundamentals of your business and, more importantly, drive a cost focused organisation.  This level of visibility and understanding is something a business run on excel sheets can never deliver.“With this new release, our customers now have the ability to take these cost drivers and run real-time sensitivity and plan variance analysis.  This allows users to rapidly understand how changes to each driver impacts their business and plan accordingly.  For example, users can adjust supply contracts, run commodity price scenarios and understand the impacts of currency fluctuations.  Any cost driver, or combination, can be adjusted and XE will instantly re-calculate the entire forecast from a zero base.  The ability to run rapid scenarios like this and understand the true impact each driver has on the business is something you can’t do when your forecast is spread across multiple spreadsheets! The ability to do this through a mobile interface is a great real world example of today’s digital mine where information is delivered with context, amplifying the abilities of key decision makers within a business.”The ability to compare budget and forecast versions against actual spend and get behind the high level numbers is another key new feature.  Scenario and Version Control Manager does the heavy lifting and automatically generates waterfall comparison chart for presentations. Again all this is something that is impossible to do in a spreadsheet, or any other package for that matter.Baldwin concluded “The question I would be asking if I was a CEO, CFO or Financial Controller of a mining organisation would be do we have a serious cost focus underpinned with XERAS, or are we focussed on managing uncontrolled and bespoke spreadsheets?”Mining companies that have a serious cost focus use XERAS Enterprise. Not only is XERAS Enterprise the industry’s leading zero-based budgeting solution, RPM claims, it is a true enterprise platform for the cost-focussed organisation.last_img read more

Sécurité sanitaire de la mozzarella retirée de la circulation en Italie

first_imgSécurité sanitaire : de la mozzarella retirée de la circulation en ItalieItalie – Les carabiniers de la division alimentaire Nas de Turin ont retiré des rayons environ 70.000 sachets de mozzarella, le fromage prenant une coloration bleue à l’ouverture de son emballage.Une consommatrice italienne a filmé avec son téléphone portable une mozzarella qui virait au bleu à l’ouverture du sachet. En effet, le fromage, d’un aspect tout à fait classique dans son emballage, prenait cette couleur peu rassurante au contact de l’air ambiant, explique l’AFP.  Produite en Allemagne et commercialisée par une enseigne discount du nord de l’Italie, la mozzarella a été évidemment retirée de la circulation par les autorités sanitaires.

Hanford work to restart 9 months after spread of radioactive contamination

first_imgRICHLAND — Work on one of Hanford’s most hazardous projects could restart next week, nearly nine months after a spread of radioactive contamination forced a shutdown.Demolition of the nuclear reservation’s highly contaminated Plutonium Finishing Plant was halted in December after a spread of radioactive particles was discovered for a second time last year.In all, 42 workers were found to have inhaled or ingested small amounts of radioactive particles and workers drove contaminated cars off the nuclear site.The planned restart is limited, with some of the less hazardous work remaining to be tackled first, and with new policies and procedures in place to keep workers safe and help restore public confidence.The Department of Energy this week approved its contractor CH2M Hill Plateau Remediation Co. to restart the less hazardous work at the plant following a two-week management review in August and some actions on a few findings from the review.last_img read more

Alaska Film Tax Credit Draws Spirited Debate As Lawmakers Tackle Subsidies

first_imgWith Alaska facing a multi-billion-dollar revenue shortfall, lawmakers are reexamining certain subsidies to see if they should remain on the books. The film tax credit program, which was vulnerable even in times of plenty, has gotten special attention.Download AudioThe state Senate voted to dismantle the program, even as other tax credits are being considered.If the debate over repeal of the film tax credit happened on Alaska reality television, it might play out a little like this.On one side, you have the Republican majority, who thinks killing the subsidy program is a no-brainer.“You ready?” “Pull!” *gunshot*”And then you have the Democratic minority fighting for the credit’s survival.”What the *bleep*, Freddie! Don’t do this to me.”Because the debate played out on the Alaska Senate floor instead of Sarah Palin’s Alaska or Deadliest Catch, the hour spent discussing the fate of the program was not as colorful.The program was created in 2008, and has paid out nearly $50 million to documentaries, feature films, homegrown Alaska productions, and — yes — reality television. Sen. Bill Stoltze, a Chugiak Republican, sponsored the bill. While Stoltze has long been an opponent of the program, he presented his bill without glee and said he felt like an “undertaker.”“It’s really just a bland fiscal issue,” Stoltze said.Stoltze went on to say that because Alaska lacks a sales tax or a significant corporate income tax, describing the film payout as a “tax credit” is really a misnomer.“This is not an industry that provides anything to our general fund of any substance,” he said.Anchorage Democrat Johnny Ellis, an architect of the film credit, rose in its defense. He dismissed the fiscal argument, pointing out that the program is already in hiatus.“The governor has suspended this program. The bill saves no state dollars,” Ellis said. “All it does is send a very negative message that Alaska is permanently closed to business, and damages the hopes, dreams, and businesses of thousands of our fellow Alaskans. That’s an unnecessary action to take.”Ellis said the program helped diversify Alaska’s economy and created jobs in the state. He said without it, films and TV shows that could be shot in Alaska would instead go to Vancouver, Canada or soundstages in Louisiana, where tax credits remain in place.“It’s not a stretch to remember Washington State — [Roslyn], Washington, — replacing Alaska on television in Northern Exposure,” Ellis said. “And a million dollars a week going into another economy, and Alaskans making fun over the water cooler of all the mistakes in that production.”As Republicans fought against the film subsidy, Democrats also used the debate to make a point about tax credits they oppose.Sen. Bill Wielechowski unsuccessfully introduced a series of amendments repealing tax credits for oil companies and one refinery.“I heard some people bemoan the fact that I’ve done this before,” Wielechowski said. “They’re right. I have done this before. I’ve run an amendment that’s very similar to this before. I’m trying to raise attention to the fact that we’re paying out $431 million more in tax credits than we’re taking in.”In an interview, Wielechowski also noted it’s ironic that the Senate was voting to dismantle the film credit program on the same day the Alaska House of Representatives was poised to create a tax credit that would benefit a defunct fertilizer plant in Nikiski.“I think there’s something poetic about it,” he said. “Everyone has their favorite tax credits I guess.”The bill passed 14-6. Sen. Lyman Hoffman, a Bethel Democrat who caucuses with the majority, joined the minority in opposition. The bill will now be considered by the house.last_img read more
