Liberal Government's Anti-Terror Bill Overhaul Would Create Super Watchdog

OTTAWA – New legislation has been introduced in the House of Commons that would create a watchdog to oversee the full array of federal intelligence services.

The measure is part of a package of national security changes being tabled by Justin Trudeau's Liberal government.

Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale says the new expert review body would keep an eye on intelligence services across government.

Bill unlikely to be debated until fall

During the last election campaign, the Liberals promised to repeal some elements of the omnibus security legislation that was brought in by the Conservatives after a gunman stormed Parliament Hill in 2014.

The Liberal bill comes as MPs prepare to head to their ridings for the summer, which means the legislation is unlikely to face serious debate until the fall.

The Liberals say the goal of the extensive package is to strike a balance between keeping Canadians safe while respecting their rights and freedoms.

Liberals Move To Curb Use Of Solitary Confinement In Federal Prisons

OTTAWA — The federal government introduced legislation Monday to restrict the use of solitary confinement inside federal prisons and to better protect prisoners with mental illness or at risk of self-harm or suicide.


Once passed, the bill would — for the first time — impose a so-called legislative framework establishing a time limit for what prison officials call administrative segregation.

The bill — part of the Liberal government's broader efforts at criminal justice reform, which include reducing the number of indigenous Canadians behind bars — was introduced with just a week left in the spring parliamentary calendar, meaning it's unlikely to come up for debate before the fall.


It also comes after several high-profile solitary confinement cases, including the 2007 death of Ashley Smith of Moncton, N.B., an emotionally disturbed 19-year-old who died in custody after tying a strip of cloth around her neck.


A coroner's inquest into Smith's death ended in 2012 with 104 recommendations, including a call to end to "indefinite solitary confinement" and the use of segregation beyond 15 days for female inmates with mental-health issues.


Shortly after taking office in 2015, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ordered Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould to take second look at the Smith inquest's recommendations as part of her mandate to implement criminal justice reforms.



'An over-utilized tool'

In her mandate letter, Trudeau asked Wilson-Raybould to work on "implementation of recommendations from the inquest into the death of Ashley Smith regarding the restriction of the use of solitary confinement and the treatment of those with mental illness."


Administrative segregation is used when there is no reasonable alternative to maintain the safety and security of the institution, staff and inmates. It differs from disciplinary segregation, which is applied to inmates who are found guilty of a serious offence in custody.


"It was an over-utilized tool," said Liberal MP Mark Holland, the parliamentary secretary to Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale.


"All of us were deeply saddened and heartbroken by some of the cases we heard, be it Ashley Smith or others."





&nbsp

The Correctional Service of Canada is also amending its policy to outlaw the practice in cases involving serious mental disorders or prisoners who are certified, those who are engaged in "self-injury" and those at risk of suicide.


"Canadians expect our government to be smart on crime, to protect society and create safer communities," said Holland. "Human custody and evidence-based rehabilitation and re-integration are at the core of strong new measures" in criminal justice reform.


Under the current law, the Correctional Service of Canada is required to release prisoners from administrative segregation at the earliest possible time. The new law would establish an initial time limit of 21 days, and then 15 days once the legislation has been the law of the land for 18 months.


The legislation also proposes amending the Corrections and Conditional Release Act and the Abolition of Early Parole Act to make them compliant with the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.



Parole changes, too

That includes reinstating an oral hearing after a suspension, termination or revocation of parole.


The legislation would also allow offenders convicted of an offence before March 28, 2011, and who meet the criteria for accelerated parole, to once again be eligible for an accelerated parole review.


In 2014, the Supreme Court of Canada struck down retroactive changes to parole eligibility that were enacted by the previous Conservative government.


The unanimous ruling found that the Abolition of Early Parole Act was in clear breach of the Charter because it imposed new punishment on people who had already been tried and sentenced.


Marco Mendicino, Raybould's parliamentary secretary, said the new legislation would also reinstate the right for an offender to get an oral hearing after their parole or statutory release is revoked.


Mendicino said the previous Conservative government revoked that right in 2012, leaving the discretion of whether to hold a hearing to a parole board member.

Senate Won't Split Liberal Infrastructure Bank From Budget Bill

OTTAWA — The Senate won't be splitting the Trudeau government's budget bill to hive off the portion dealing with creation of a new infrastructure bank.


Senators have rejected by the narrowest of margins a motion to split the bill, defeating it on a tie vote of 38-38 late Monday.



bill morneau

The motion from independent Sen. Andre Pratte would have carved out the infrastructure bank provisions into a separate bill that could be examined at greater length.


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Finance Minister Bill Morneau had both urged senators to leave the bill intact and pass it before the summer parliamentary break.


And while Trudeau has encouraged senators to behave in a more independent, non-partisan manner, he had also warned that the government expects unelected senators to bow to the will of the elected House of Commons on budget matters.


While the government can breathe a little easier now that the bill is no longer at risk of being divided, senators could still potentially vote to amend it in some other way or even defeat it outright.





&nbsp

The government has maintained that the $35-billion infrastructure bank is an integral part of its economic plan to boost the economy and create jobs.


The bank is to be launched with $15 billion in direct federal investments and another $20 billion in repayable contributions, loans and loan guarantees. The government hopes to leverage up to $5 in private investment for every $1 in government funding to finance what it calls "transformational" infrastructure projects.


Pratte and other senators have objected to the bank's governance structure, which they fear could allow political interference in the choice of projects that get funded. They've also expressed concern that taxpayers will wind up on the hook for projects that go over-budget or flop.

Lyse Ricard, Senate Ethics Officer Leading Don Meredith Harassment Probe, Quits

OTTAWA — The Senate’s Ethics Officer Lyse Ricard resigned suddenly Monday.

Ricard has been leading an investigation in allegations of workplace harassment in the office of former senator Don Meredith, who stepped down last month when it seemed he may be expelled over a relationship with a teenage girl.

don meredith

Ricard cited “sudden and unforeseen family obligations requiring her full attention for her early departure,” according to Senate Speaker George Furey. She will resign on June 30. She has been the Senate’s ethics officer since 2012.

It’s unclear what this means for the Meredith report or another report into allegations concerning independent Liberal Senator Colin Kenny. Calls to the office of the Senate’s ethics officer were not immediately returned.

According to the ethics code, an inquiry pertaining to a senator is automatically permanently suspended if they cease to be a senator. However, Senate committees do have the authority to override the permanent suspension of an inquiry if they decide it should be completed once started.

Meredith resigned a week after the Senate ethics committee recommended he be expelled for his relationship with a teenage girl.

Days before the committee recommended expulsion, HuffPost Canada published an investigation revealing the senator harassed and sexually abused his staff for years.

Other senior Senate officials moving on

Conservative Senator Raynell Andreychuk told the Senate that Ricard was resigning due to the unexpected illness of her husband, Jean-Pierre Dubeau.

She acknowledged Ricard for her dedication, professionalism, hard work and the integrity she had brought to the Senate ethics officer position.

Ricard is the third senior Senate administrator to leave her post. Nicole Proulx, the chief corporate services officer and clerk of the standing committee on internal economy, budgets and administration, will retire on Aug. 31. The clerk of the Senate Charles Robert is also moving on. Robert will be the new clerk of the House of Commons.

Here’s How to Bring in More Customers In Houston This Month

Marketing Agency Strategy – Learn How To Diversify Your Efforts By Hiring A Marketing Consultant

  • You need to focus on what you do best, and that’s being the top rated company in your niche.  You can only do this by diversifying your time, and operating your business

  • You can learn from the tactics of what your competitors are doing in their advertising strategies by watching their local advertising campaigns

  • Local SEO is very powerful!  Making sure your Google My Business page is optimized effectively can help you start getting new clients as well

  • You don’t have to be an expert at marketing you just have to know what is effective. Stick to one tactic and perfect it

  • Harris county makes up the majority of Houston, find out what your customers like that come in and piggyback off some of their ideas.  Your customers know what they want!

  • Digital advertising should always be at the core of your business. If you want new customers you need to make sure this is a focal point. Do it right the first time, and new customers will come in near you all day every day.

If you have hit a slump and your sales volume has not increased in the last three months, then you might be in trouble. It is easy to blame the economy or get blinded by external factors. However, it is important to reexamine your position in the market and make sure that you are continuously delivering value to your current customers as well as encouraging new customers. Here are four tips on how you can bring in more customers the month.

Stop Doing What You’re Doing Wrong

if you are advertising more on a market that has not been profitable for the last six months, then it might be the right time to reconsider and reallocate the resources to other means of profits such as offering a delivery service or even improving customer experience. If your current vendor has been selling you low-grade materials, then it List makes sense to cut the ties before it damages your business reputation. If you fix or let go of the low-hanging fruits, you will be surprised to find better opportunities for growth.

Focus on the Essentials

Concentrate on these three important factors: your customers, the problem, and the solution. You can get distracted by advertising, social media, and marketing but you must not forget the very reason why you are in business. Keep yourself in check and make sure that your product or service is still solving your customer’s’ problems. When you lose this value, you lose customers and your business.

Distinguish Yourself from Your Competitors

Separating yourself from the competitors starts with the product, your distribution method, and your advertising. Does your product have a higher quality than the rest of the competition? Is it cheaper? Is it more efficient? Lay out all the features unique to your product and explain in detail how they can benefit the customers. Then, make sure that it is available and there are many ways to purchase the product. Don’t advertise something that is not true. At the very least, you should be honest about what your product can do.

Engage the Customers

Customer engagement is far more than getting their feedback. It is about understanding their needs and providing a platform to listen to their needs. You can reach your customers through social media, a private mailing list, a forum, etc. You have to bear in mind that people change and as a business owner, you have to be aware of these changes and be able to respond and transform your products and services.

Any or all of these strategies can be useful for bringing in new customers immediately. Try them each, in turn, to see what works the fastest for your business.
