Police officers who saw Tina Fontaine before she was killed testify at

first_imgThe Canadian PressWINNIPEG – Shortly before she disappeared and nine days before her body was found in Winnipeg’s Red River wrapped in a duvet cover, Tina Fontaine was captured by a security camera walking into a parkade.Time-lapse images of the 15-year-old girl, whose death renewed calls for a national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women, were shown Tuesday at the second-degree murder trial of the man accused of killing her, 55-year-old Raymond Cormier.Tina sat down and fell asleep between two cars behind a University of Winnipeg building named after Helen Betty Osborne – a Cree woman kidnapped and killed in The Pas, Man., in 1971 whose murder was unsolved for 16 years.“She said that she was lost. She wasn’t sure where she was,” Audrey Kohinski, a security worker who attended to Tina, testified Tuesday.Tina had “mosquito bites or cigarette burns on her legs” which looked “awful,” Kohinski added.An ambulance was called and Tina was taken to hospital. The security footage shows the petite girl walking ahead of first responders toward the ambulance.It was shortly after 10 a.m. on Aug. 8, 2014, and Tina – a girl widely described as happy who became sexually exploited after leaving her home northeast of Winnipeg to visit her mother in the city – had already been through much that day.The trial heard from two police officers who stopped a truck in an area known for prostitution five hours earlier. The driver, Richard Mohammed, was arrested for driving with a suspended licence.Tina was in his passenger seat, the officers testified. They ran her name through the police database and appear to have missed a flag that she had been reported missing from Manitoba Child and Family Services.She told them she was staying at a nearby hotel, used by Child and Family Services to house kids in care, and they let her walk away.Constables Brock Jansen and Craig Houle were later suspended for their actions and eventually left the city police force.Mohammed told court he had gotten in a fight with his girlfriend, and picked up Tina and asked her if she wanted to party.“I wasn’t sure how old she was,” he testified.The trial, which is now in its second week, also heard for the first time Tuesday from people who saw Tina and Cormier together.Tina’s boyfriend, Cody Mason who was 18 at the time, testified that the pair first met Cormier earlier that summer and told him they didn’t have a place to stay.“He took (us) to a house with a basement and in the morning he came back and opened the door,” Mason said.Cormier went by the name Sebastian, Mason said, and on later encounters, would supply Tina with the prescription drug Gabapentin. Mason said he and Tina would also take marijuana, cocaine and alcohol _ obtained from other people _ in the weeks they spent together that summer.Under cross-examination, Mason was asked whether Cormier was ever mean to Tina.“Was he nice to Tina?” defence lawyer Andrew Synyshyn asked.“Yeah,” Mason replied.“Did he ever say or do anything bad to Tina?” Synyshyn asked.“No,” Mason answered.last_img read more

Miller isn’t the Indians’ closer — that distinction belongs to Cody Allen — and in fact, Miller doesn’t have a single save yet this season. But no reliever has contributed more to his team’s bottom line so far.Miller has appeared in 23 games, usually entering in the 7th or 8th inning. All but a handful of those appearances have come in high-leverage situations. He’s yielded just two runs — one of them unearned — while striking out 37 batters and allowing just 5 walks and 13 hits in 26.1 innings. He’s been as unhittable as pitchers get. But while Miller hasn’t earned any saves for his efforts, he does have 17 goose eggs, tying him for the major league lead. He also leads the majors in goose wins above replacement (GWAR), having added 2.3 wins to Cleveland’s tally so far. If his performance so far is the source of any disappointment, it’s that, unlike during last year’s postseason, Miller hasn’t been used in many multi-inning appearances — but that’s on manager Terry Francona, not Miller.The co-leader in goose eggs is the Brewers’ Corey Knebel, who started out as a setup man but worked his way into the closer role. We’re more interested in pitchers with less conventional usage patterns, however, and a couple of them have fallen off the pace slightly. The Astros’ Chris Devenski, who we highlighted last month for often working multiple innings at a time, is up to 15 goose eggs, but he also has 5 broken eggs (the goose equivalent of a blown save). And the Reds’ Raisel Iglesias, who’s mainly used as a closer but who often enters the game in the 8th inning instead of the 9th, is stuck on 12 goose eggs, mostly because the Reds have been playing like crap and not providing him with enough clutch situations to pitch in.You can find a complete rundown of goose stats in the table below. We’ll continue to update these numbers once a month or so.

Wes Morgan We were very sloppy

first_imgLeicester City captain Wes Morgan has urged his team to improve in breaking teams down in order to reach their target in the Premier League this season.Morgan slammed his team for being too sloppy in their 2-1 home defeat to ten-man Southampton at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.The visitors went one goal in the 11th minute, thanks to James Ward-Prowse who stepped up to convert a penalty after Nampalys Mendy’s clumsy challenge in the box.Southampton defender Yann Valery received his second yellow card and was sent off in the 45th minute of the game.But Shane Long doubled the Saints’ advantage in the stoppage time to make it 2-0 to the visitors going into the break.Wilfred Ndid pulled one back for Leicester to reduce the deficit in the 58th minute, but the Foxes failed to find the equalizer and the game ended in a 2-1 defeat.“At home, we want to pick up points and put in good performances, and especially the first half, we were very sloppy,” Wes Morgan told the club’s website.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“We were getting into good positions and the ball was breaking down for no reason. We conceded two very sloppy goals, which isn’t like us.“It’s obviously very frustrating to go in at half-time 2-0 down when we felt we should have done a lot better.“We tried and tried in the second half. I’m not sure what the possession stats would have been, but it was waves and waves of attack. We got one goal, but we couldn’t get the second and it’s difficult.“They had 10 men and they stayed in two solid blocks, which was very difficult to break down and we couldn’t get through. It’s very frustrating.“We shouldn’t have been in that position in the first place. 2-0 down just gives us a very tough task and we’ve got to start looking at our performances and doing a lot better.”last_img read more

Elizabeth Warren makes big move toward 2020 presidential run

first_img Posted: December 31, 2018 AP December 31, 2018 AP, Categories: Local San Diego News, National & International News, Politics FacebookTwitter WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday took the first major step toward launching a widely anticipated campaign for the presidency, hoping her reputation as a populist fighter can help her navigate a Democratic field that could include nearly two dozen candidates.“No matter what our differences, most of us want the same thing,” the 69-year-old Massachusetts Democrat said in a video that highlights her family’s history in Oklahoma. “To be able to work hard, play by the same set of rules and take care of the people we love. That’s what I’m fighting for and that’s why today I’m launching an exploratory committee for president.”Elizabeth Warren has formed an exploratory committee ahead of the 2020 presidential election, becoming the first Democrat with a national profile to take concrete steps towards a run.Warren burst onto the national scene a decade ago during the financial crisis with calls for greater consumer protections. She quickly became one of the party’s more prominent liberals even as she sometimes fought with Obama administration officials over their response to the market turmoil.Now, as a likely presidential contender, she is making an appeal to the party’s base. Her video notes the economic challenges facing people of color along with images of a women’s march and Warren’s participation at an LGBT event.In an email to supporters, Warren said she’d more formally announce a campaign plan early in 2019.Warren is the most prominent Democrat yet to make a move toward a presidential bid and has long been a favorite target of President Donald Trump.In mid-December, former Obama housing chief Julian Castro also announced a presidential exploratory committee, which legally allows potential candidates to begin raising money. Outgoing Maryland Rep. John Delaney is the only Democrat so far to have formally announced a presidential campaign.But that’s likely to change quickly in the new year as other leading Democrats take steps toward White House runs.Warren enters a Democratic field that’s shaping up as the most crowded in decades, with many of her Senate colleagues openly weighing their own campaigns, as well as governors, mayors and other prominent citizens. One of her most significant competitors could be Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent who is eyeing another presidential run harnessing the same populist rhetoric.She must also move past a widely panned October release of a DNA test meant to bolster her claim to Native American heritage. The move was intended to rebut Trump’s taunts of Warren as “Pocahontas.” Instead, her use of a genetic test to prove ethnicity spurred controversy that seemed to blunt any argument she sought to make. There was no direct mention of it in the video released Monday.Warren has the benefit of higher name recognition than many others in the Democratic mix for 2020, thanks to her years as a prominent critic of Wall Street who originally conceived of what became the government’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.She now faces an arduous battle to raise money and capture Democratic primary voters’ attention before Iowa casts its first vote in more than a year. She has an advantage in the $12.5 million left over from her 2018 re-election campaign that she could use for a presidential run.Warren’s campaign is likely to revolve around the same theme she’s woven into speeches and policy proposals in recent years: battling special interests, paying mind to the nexus between racial and economic inequities.“America’s middle class is under attack,” Warren said in the video. “How did we get here? Billionaires and big corporations decided they wanted more of the pie. And they enlisted politicians to cut them a fatter slice.”___ Elizabeth Warren makes big move toward 2020 presidential runlast_img read more

Trump inauguration prompts celebration in Russia

first_imgThe Kremlin may have spent years reviling America, but Russians hoping Donald Trump will usher in a new era of detente marked his inauguration on Friday with parties and trinkets from commemorative coins to “matryoshka” nesting dolls in his image.Washington was turned into a virtual fortress with an estimated 900,000 people—backers and protesters—descending on the capital. In London, anti-Trump activists draped a banner reading “Build Bridges Not Walls” from Tower Bridge. Protests were planned across western Europe on Friday and Saturday.But according to Gennady Gudkov, a Putin critic and former lawmaker, Russia is in the grip of “Trumpomania”, with state media giving the President-elect blanket air time at the expense of more mundane and sometimes depressing domestic news stories.That, he said, was in part because the U.S. election, unlike elections in Russia, had been unpredictable. The Kremlin is hoping Trump will ease sanctions imposed over the annexation of Crimea, team up with Russia against Islamic State, and cut back NATO military activity near Russian borders.Craftsmen in the city of Zlatoust, east of Moscow, have released a limited series of silver and gold commemorative coins, engraved with “In Trump We Trust” – an allusion to the phrase on U.S. banknotes “In God We Trust”.‘TRUMPOMANIA’Sellers of traditional matryoshka nesting dolls have added Trump dolls to their popular line-up of items carved in the likeness of President Vladimir Putin, Bolshevik revolutionary Vladimir Lenin, ex-President Mikhail Gorbachev and Josef Stalin.And a shop selling Russian military kit located opposite the U.S. embassy in Moscow has unveiled a cheeky promotional campaign offering embassy employees and U.S. citizens a 10 percent discount on its wares to celebrate Trump’s inauguration.Some of Trump’s opponents believe the Kremlin helped him win the White House by staging a hacking campaign to hoover up embarrassing information about Hillary Clinton, his rival. The Kremlin denies that, but few here make any secret of the fact that they are pleased that Trump and not Clinton triumphed.Relations between Putin and Barack Obama had soured badly.“Trump’s election has generated enormous enthusiasm in Russia because his warm words about Russia and Putin have given us hope that the USA and the West will stop their attack on Russia,” Sergei Markov, a former pro-Putin lawmaker, said on social media.“We don’t know for sure if there will be an improvement (in relations) or not. But we Russians are optimists … so we are hoping for the best, while preparing for the worst.”For Russian nationalists, Trump’s inauguration is an excuse to mix fun with self-promotion.They are holding an all-night party at what used to be the main Soviet-era post office in Moscow where they will showcase their favorite prop, a triptych of Putin, Trump and French Front National leader Marine Le Pen.Konstantin Rykov, a former pro-Putin lawmaker and one of the event’s promoters, said on social media it was right to celebrate the first phase of the “New World Order.”“Washington will be ours,” he quipped.last_img read more

I am not worthy of Nobel Peace Prize Imran

first_imgPakistani prime minister Imran Khan attends talks at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, 2 November 2018. Photo: ReutersPakistan prime minister Imran Khan, addressing calls by his countrymen on social media and in his government to award him a Nobel Peace Prize for “de-escalating” tensions with India, on Monday said that he is not worthy of the honour.”I am not worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize. The person worthy of this would be the one who solves the Kashmir dispute according to the wishes of the Kashmiri people and paves the way for peace and human development in the subcontinent,” he tweeted.Supporters and officials of Khan’s administration started lobbying for a Nobel Peace Prize for him following his announcement to release Indian Air Force (IAF) officer wing commander Abhinandan who was captured by Pakistan on 27 February after his MiG-21 crashed inside Pakistani territory. He was released on 1 March.Soon after the Indian pilot was handed over to the Indian authorities, the hashtag “#NobelPeacePrizeForImranKhan” started trending in Pakistan on Twitter. Until Sunday, over 300,000 people had signed online petitions seeking the Nobel for Khan.A resolution was also submitted in the country’s National Assembly Secretariat last week for the same. The motion stated that Khan played a “sagacious role in reducing tension between Pakistan and India which was created due to warmongering attitude of the Indian leadership”.Meanwhile, the Pakistan Peoples Party, which had earlier questioned the timing of the release of the Indian pilot, expressed its sorrow over the ongoing campaign for the award.last_img read more

Left Front responsible for transport dept losses says Suvendu Adhikari

first_imgKolkata: State Transport minister Suvendu Adhikari on Friday held the erstwhile Left Front government responsible for huge losses incurred by the transport Corporations and reiterated that his department has taken several corrective measures for the losses developing ‘Corporations’ under the aegis of his department.”The wrong policy of the erstwhile Left Front government has contributed to the ‘Corporations’ incurring huge losses. Before 2010-11, the ratio of a bus to its employees was 1:11, higher than the national average which is 1:5.17 . I have standardised this to 1:4.48. Our thrust is to ensure the best of transport facilities for the common people and to make the Corporations free from running it with subsidy. We have ushered in professionalism in the functioning of the Corporations,” Adhikari said in response to a query from Congress MLA Asit Mitra at the state Assembly. Adhikari said that the Left government had left a debt of Rs 132 crore on the Transport department in 2011. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataHe maintained that his department has adopted a clear policy in introducing buses only in those routes that are economically viable. “We run buses only in those routes where we get at least 50 percent return of the cost incurred in operating the buses. We do not take any bank loan for functioning of the Corporations,” Adhikari said. The state Transport department now runs 3,592 buses across the state and has 14514 employees involved for running the show. He added that the government has already introduced 20 electric buses and will roll out another 60 by the end of July. Altogether, 55 charging stations have been set up.
