« MADD Canada est ravi des initiatives législatives du gouvernement de la Nouvelle-Écosse pour combattre la conduite sous l’influence de la drogue. La Nouvelle-Écosse a inclus la drogue dans son programme de tolérance zéro pour les jeunes et les nouveaux conducteurs, ce qui protégera les jeunes et les nouveaux conducteurs, affirme Andrew Murie, chef de la direction de MADD Canada. Ces modifications législatives contribueront à réduire les collisions causées par la conduite sous l’influence de la drogue alors que la Nouvelle-Écosse se prépare en vue de la légalisation du cannabis. » La taxation du cannabis sera prévue dans la loi sur les mesures financières (Financial Measures Act). « Le cannabis sera légalisé, mais nous ne devons pas oublier que la consommation de cannabis peut avoir des conséquences graves sur la santé. Nous encourageons les Néo-Écossais à faire des choix responsables une fois le cannabis légalisé, souligne M. Furey. Au cours des prochains mois, le gouvernement travaillera avec ses partenaires pour éduquer le public au sujet de ces nouveaux règlements et de la consommation responsable. » Le cadre législatif proposé est sous réserve de l’approbation de l’Assemblée législative. De nombreuses lois provinciales n’entreront pas en vigueur avant la proclamation de la loi fédérale. Pour obtenir plus d’information sur la légalisation du cannabis, consultez le http://www.novascotia.ca/cannabis/fr . La nouvelle loi sur la réglementation du cannabis (Cannabis Control Act) de la Nouvelle-Écosse établit le cadre législatif de la province pour la légalisation du cannabis à usage récréatif. La loi a été déposée aujourd’hui 3 avril par Mark Furey, procureur général et ministre de la Justice. La loi sur la réglementation du cannabis établit les règles concernant la vente, la distribution, l’achat, la possession, la culture, la multiplication et la récolte du cannabis. « La légalisation du cannabis au Canada est un changement considérable et complexe pour notre pays. Notre principale priorité dans l’élaboration de ce cadre législatif a été la santé et la sécurité des Néo-Écossais, particulièrement des enfants et des jeunes, souligne M. Furey. Nous avons tenu des consultations exhaustives pour connaître les points de vue des Néo-Écossais, y compris des experts. Nous sommes d’avis que notre loi assure un accès responsable et raisonnable au cannabis à usage récréatif. » Le cadre législatif sur la réglementation du cannabis promulgue une nouvelle loi et modifie sept autres lois, notamment la loi sur la régie des alcools (Liquor Control Act), la loi sur les endroits sans fumée (Smoke-free Places Act) et la loi sur les véhicules automobiles (Motor Vehicle Act). Les points saillants du cadre législatif sur le cannabis incluent : Vente et distribution Consommation Âge légal, possession et culture Interdire la conduite avec facultés affaiblies par le cannabis Établir des pénalités administratives qui seront imposées aux personnes qui conduisent avec des facultés affaiblies, y compris la suspension du permis de conduire et des conditions de rétablissement Faire correspondre les peines liées à l’alcool et aux drogues, s’il y a lieu, par exemple des périodes de révocation prolongées lorsqu’un enfant est présent ou lorsque le permis de conduire de la personne a été révoqué dans le passé Accorder aux policiers l’autorité de contraindre les conducteurs qu’ils soupçonnent d’avoir les facultés affaiblies à s’arrêter immédiatement Interdire la consommation de cannabis sous toutes ses formes dans un véhicule, y compris un bateau motorisé Limiter la façon dont le cannabis peut être transporté et entreposé dans un véhicule Établir une politique de tolérance zéro pour les nouveaux conducteurs Limiter la consommation de cannabis en public de la même façon que le tabac, par des modifications à la loi sur les endroits sans fumée Confirmer que les municipalités auront l’autorité d’établir des règlements plus stricts Accorder aux propriétaires de logement l’autorité de modifier un bail pour inclure des règles raisonnables sur la consommation et la culture du cannabis à usage récréatif sans préavis, et permettre aux locataires de donner un préavis de résiliation du bail Sécurité routière et conduite avec facultés affaiblies Établir la Société des alcools de la Nouvelle-Écosse (Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation – NSLC) à titre de seul vendeur autorisé de cannabis Exiger que la NSLC respecte toutes les exigences fédérales Promouvoir les objectifs sociaux pour la consommation responsable Établir l’âge légal de 19 ans pour la consommation, l’achat, la culture et la possession de cannabis Établir des peines pour les jeunes pris en possession de cannabis ou les adultes qui fournissent du cannabis ou des accessoires aux jeunes Imposer les règlements fédéraux sur la possession personnelle en public et la culture à domicile Faire correspondre les amendes liées au cannabis aux amendes liées à l’alcool

VANCOUVER — A newborn calf in a southern resident killer whale pod has been spotted in the waters around Tofino, British Columbia.Department of Fisheries and Oceans marine mammal co-ordinator Paul Cottrell called the birth wonderful news.He says the southern resident killer whales are currently an endangered population, numbering just 75, so any births are significant.He says the first year is tough for killer whales babies, with a 50 per cent mortality rate, but another calf born in January still appears to be doing well.The first calf born in three years to the endangered orcas died shortly after birth last August and its mother pushed the baby’s body through the water for weeks.Scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in the United States released photos last week showing a female adult Southern resident and her 3 1/2-year-old calf in declining in health.

London – The Moroccan state-owned Office Chérifien de Phosphates (OCP) has several projects under way to expand output, with most analysts predicting a recovery in the global market by 2016, said Oxford Business Group (OBG).Increased sales of value-added fertilizers may help offset the decline in raw commodity prices in the near future, said OBG.OCP is pushing ahead with a MAD 145bn (€13.05bn) investment program to increase its production capacity and reduce costs, positioning itself well for a market recovery, it added. The state-owned company, which owns four mining centers and two processing plants, is aiming to double its annual capacity of phosphates between 2007 and 2017 by expanding current mines and launching new ones, with a particular focus on improving downstream activity, it noted.The OCP investments will be partly used for constructing a phosphate cleaning plant in Merah, a 235-km pipeline between Khouribga and its Jorf site, and the opening of three new mines at the Khouribga mining site, which will expand production from 18.5m tons to 38m tons by 2020.

They also called for the urgent regrouping and demobilization of the opposing forces and their integration into the regular army or into civilian life.

OSU won, 8-5.Credit: Sam Harrington / Lantern photographerAfter sweeping a winless Siena team over the weekend, the Ohio State baseball team is looking to continue defending its home turf.The Buckeyes (11-6, 0-0) are preparing for their last two non-conference games — against in-state opponents Akron Tuesday and Xavier Wednesday — before kicking off their Big Ten schedule with a weekend series against Michigan State.Senior outfielder Tim Wetzel, who is hitting .417 (10-24) with runners on base, said the team is concentrated on taking things one game at a time.“One thing that is big with this year’s team is we’re just treating every game the same, whether it’s the Big Ten or a midweek game like we’ve got coming up this week. Every game is just as important as the next,” Wetzel said. “We’re not going to jump ahead to the Big Ten this weekend. We’ve got to take care of these two games first.”Coach Greg Beals said he expects his players to bring a lot of energy into both of their games this week.“I just want to see us keep the winning streak going, I want to see the quality of at-bats continue to grow, I’d like to see us hit some extra base hits. If we get some extra base hits, we usually score runs in those innings,” Beals said.Sophomore pitcher Jake Post is slated to start the game against the Zips (7-8, 0-0). After two starts and also coming out of the bullpen as a relief pitcher twice, Post is currently 2-1 with a 1.80 ERA and said he is confident heading into the game against Akron.“They look like a beatable team. If I execute my pitches and our hitters come through and we play good defense, we’ll come out with a win,” Post said. “I just want to go as deep as I can, have a good game, throw good pitches and execute to put the team in a good situation to win.”Numerous freshmen have emerged as key players for the Buckeyes in the early season. The Big Ten announced Monday that freshman pitcher Travis Lakins earned Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors. Lakins recorded a perfect 1.2 innings pitched in the latter game of a doubleheader with Siena Saturday after striking out a career-high five hitters and only allowing a pair of hits in 3.2 scoreless innings at No. 7 Oregon State Tuesday.Other freshmen producing for OSU include outfielder Ronnie Dawson, who is currently third in the Big Ten with a .393 batting average and leads the team with 22 hits. Freshman pitcher Adam Niemeyer struck out a career-best eight while allowing just one hit over 4.1 scoreless innings of relief against No. 9 Oregon March 7.“They’re huge, we knew that we were going to need them coming into the season big time,” Wetzel said. “The (freshmen) pitching staff has really been stepping up, (Troy) Montgomery and Dawson in the lineup have been huge, we knew that was going to be the case. We’re just excited they’re producing.”Beals said a key to succeeding in the conference is getting the younger players as much playing time as possible.“I think we’ve been able to get production from the younger guys but most importantly, we’ve got them experience and they’ve gotten a good number of at bats, so they’re going to be ready to go now that we start conference play,” Beals said.Beals added that OSU is healthy and ready to make an impact in the Big Ten when the conference portion of its schedule begins this weekend.“Physically, we’re in really good shape so as you transfer from preseason into the conference season, that’s something that’s always a concern and we’re healthy right now,” Beals said.First pitch against Akron is set for 5:05 p.m. Tuesday at Bill Davis Stadium.

Corinne Schulze/CBS Interactive General Motors’ ignition switch recall was one of the biggest and deadliest to hit the market in decades. The fix for it has been out for a long time now, but the owners of the affected vehicles aren’t giving up on getting the General to pay for its mistake.A large part of that effort has been directed at suing GM for the difference between what customers paid for their recalled vehicles and what the vehicles are worth now. Unfortunately for the consumers, a federal judge in a Manhattan court on Tuesday ruled that the vehicle owners couldn’t seek damages from GM for lost value, Reuters reports.US District Judge Jesse Furman specifically cited the plaintiffs’ lack of fair market value information for their vehicles as a reason for tossing out their claims. It would make it nigh-on impossible for a jury to accurately assess the amount of damages for which GM would be liable.The judge’s decision affects owners in three states — California, Missouri and Texas. He also indefinitely tabled a possible trial that had been set for January 2020 to address owners’ claims.”GM is pleased with the Court’s ruling,” said a GM representative, in a statement. “The Court granted GM’s summary judgment motion rejecting plaintiffs’ claims for alleged economic loss, which was Plaintiffs’ largest remaining claim. As the Court noted, ‘the ruling changes the landscape [of the litigation] in dramatic ways.'”GM’s behavior during the recall process for the millions of affected vehicles was enough to get the Department of Justice to file a criminal case against the company, which has now been dismissed after the terms of a three-year deferred prosecution agreement were met.

DOT Commissioner Marc Luiken, Aleknagik Mayor Jane Gottschalk, Sen. Lyman Hoffman and Rep. Bryce Edgmon cut the ribbon on the Aleknagik Wood River Bridge in October 2015. In 2017, Hoffman will be the Senate Finance Committee co-chairman and Edgmon will be House speaker. (Photo by Misty Nielson)Dillingham Democrat Bryce Edgmon will be the first speaker of the Alaska House of Representatives from off the road system or outside of Southeast Alaska since Nome’s Howard Lyng in the Territorial Legislature of 1941. Other rural lawmakers will hold more important leadership posts in the next legislature than they have had in decades.Listen NowEdgmon and two key committee chairmen are from northern or western Alaska.Nome Democrat Neal Foster will be co-chairman of the House Finance Committee. Bethel Democrat Lyman Hoffman will be co-chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. It will be the first time both budget-writing committees will have chairs from Bush Alaska since 1990. Hoffman also was a finance chair then, when he served in the house.Edgmon said the rural leaders are part of a broader regional balance that will be good for the entire state.“I think it will be good for rural Alaska, and from my standpoint, it’s always good to have regional diversity on the finance committees, as well as other committees,” Edgmon said.Rural lawmakers have a tradition dating back decades of joining majority caucuses. But this session they’re playing a particularly central role in control of the House. Edgmon and Foster joined with three Republicans to switch from the current Republican-led majority to the primarily Democratic incoming majority.What this means for rural residents is uncertain. Rural lawmakers have traditionally argued for maintaining or increasing government services. Service increases will be difficult due to the state’s budget crisis. But the incoming House majority is interested in striking a balance that includes both spending cuts and new revenue, like a broad-based income or sales tax, to maintain services. Edgmon expects Foster and his finance committee co-chair Paul Seaton will keep this in mind.“Both individuals – Rep. Seaton from Homer, Rep. Foster from Nome – are very committed to taking a balanced approach to figuring out the fiscal challenges that lie ahead,” Edgmon said.Former University of Alaska Southeast political scientist Clive Thomas noted the state government funds a large share of jobs in rural Alaska. And Thomas expects the rural lawmakers to be at the forefront in defending school funding.“It’s a major income generator in most villages – probably the major income generator – so I think that’s one of the things that they will be concerned about and want to protect,” Thomas said.Edgmon said there’s another historic element of the new leadership.“I’m very proud to be the first speaker of Alaska Native heritage,” Edgmon said. “And that’s something that I hope can serve as a role model for future speakers with Alaska Native blood.”Edgmon said he’s a little less than a quarter Aleut, and he also grew up learning Yupik words and phrases in Dillingham, where the two cultures overlap.“I grew up in a small town, so I bring small-town values to whatever I do,” Edgmon said. “And I think by nature I’m somebody who listens first and I’m not always the biggest talker in the room. And maybe that hearkens back to my Alaska Native upbringing.”The budget’s effect on rural areas and the rest of the state will be clearer in mid-December, when Gov. Bill Walker is scheduled to unveil his budget proposal.
