 At 2 p.m., Sector Puget Sound reported that the Canadian Coast Guard received a preliminary report from the master of the Zim Kingston reporting that two containers overboard contained hazardous material. 

The U.S. Coast Guard and Canadian agencies will continue to monitor movement of the shipping containers. 

 Zim Kingston moored 5 miles from Victoria, British Columbia. 

At approximately 11:11 a.m. Saturday Rescue Coordination Centre Victoria reported to the Zim Kingston to have two containers on fire. Sector Puget Sound and RCC Victoria arranged an overflight to monitor the area. Coast Guard Air Station Port Angeles was directed to do the overflight and captured imagery. 

Both the US Coast Guard and Canadian Coast Guard continue to broadcast warnings as the containers pose a significant risk to mariners. 

“The U.S. Coast Guard continues to monitor the situation, engaging with our Canadian and tribal partners to respond and support as requested while this incident continues to develop,” said Capt. Daniel Broadhurst, chief of incident management for the 13th Coast Guard District.

An incident command post led by the Canadian Coast Guard on behalf of the Government of Canada, the Province of British Columbia, and First Nations representatives to manage and coordinate this multi-agency response. 

The safety of the remaining crew on the ship, and the responders on the water, is the top priority as the response operations proceed. Unified Command is working through the Emergency Management British Columbia network through local communities to broadcast public safety information as required. Further updates will be provided once the response is underway.

(BEIJING) Higher People’s Court Report: Rejects a Canadian drug convict’s appeal of a death sentence in what appeared to be an effort to step up pressure on Canada to release a detained executive of tech giant Huawei #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.11: The Canadian government condemned the ruling and appealed to China to grant clemency to Robert Schellenberg: Schellenberg was sentenced to 15 years in prison in November 2018 after being convicted of smuggling 222 kilograms of methamphetamine: In January 2019, he was abruptly sentenced to death following the arrest of Huawei’s chief financial officer in Vancouver….

#AceDailyNews says that Canadian drug smuggler Robert Schellenberg loses appeal against death sentence in China: Meng Wanzhou was arrested on December 1, 2018, on US chargesrelated to possible dealings with Iran…..

https://www.tellerreport.com/news/2021-08-10-court-upheld–death-sentence-against-canadian-drug-smuggler-in-china.BkNiZD9kgt.html

The Higher People’s Court of Liaoning Province on Tuesday rejected Schellenberg’s appeal and sent the case to China’s Supreme People’s Court for review, as is required by law before death sentences can be carried out.

“We condemn the verdict in the strongest possible terms and call on China to grant Robert clemency,” Dominic Barton, the Canadian ambassador to Beijing, said.

“His retrial and subsequent sentence were arbitrary.

“We remain deeply concerned by China’s arbitrary use of the death penalty.”

Western diplomats attend court for Schellenberg’s appeal

Separately, former Canadian diplomat Michael Kovrig and Canadian entrepreneur Michael Spavor were detained in December 2018 and later charged with spying in what was widely seen as an attempt to pressure Ottawa to release Ms Meng.Australian sentenced to death in China for drug smuggling

DFAT says it is “deeply saddened” by a Chinese court’s decision to sentence Australian man Karm Gilespie to death for drug smuggling.

Mr Barton said he would travel to the north-eastern city of Dandong to see Mr Spavor in the coming days.

The ambassador said there might be a ruling in Mr Spavor’s case on Wednesday and said he had no details of when Mr Kovrig’s case might be decided.

Asked whether the three cases were linked to Ms Meng’s, Mr Barton said: “I don’t think it’s a coincidence these are happening right now while events are going on in Vancouver.”

Diplomats from the United States, Germany, Australia and France attended Tuesday’s hearing, according to Mr Barton.

He expressed thanks to them and to other governments for expressing support for Canada.

Two other Canadians, Fan Wei and Xu Weihong, also were sentenced to death on drug charges in separate cases in 2019 as relations between Beijing and Ottawa deteriorated.

The United States wants Ms Meng, who is the company founder’s daughter, extradited to face charges she lied to banks in Hong Kong in connection with dealings with Iran that might violate trade sanctions.

A Canadian judge will hear final arguments in the next few weeks over whether Ms Meng should be extradited.

She has been living under house arrest in Vancouver.

(FLORIDA) Justice Court Report: Canadian National Sentenced for Human Smuggling Conspiracy to 32-Months in Prison #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – May.18: During the course of the conspiracy, Chelliah worked with other human smugglers, arranging housing and transport for undocumented immigrants en route to Canada through the United States. Chelliah arranged for the individuals to be transported from the airport in Port Au Prince, Haiti, to a hotel where Chelliah housed and provided them with food. Chelliah then arranged for transportation by boat from Haiti to Turks and Caicos Islands, then to the Bahamas, and then by boat to Miami, Florida. Chelliah accompanied the individuals, including traveling with them by boat during their journey. The actions undertaken by Chelliah and co-conspirators in furtherance of their smuggling activities were done in exchange for payment.

FLORIDA: ‘A Canadian national was sentenced to 32 months in prison for conspiracy to bring undocumented immigrants to the United States for private financial gain in connection with his role in a scheme to smuggle undocumented immigrants from Sri Lanka through the Caribbean and into the United States’

Sri Kajamukam Chelliah, aka Mohan, aka Richie, 55, of Sri Lanka, pleaded guilty on Feb. 24, to conspiracy to bring aliens to the United States for private financial gain. Chelliah admitted to conspiring with others to facilitate the travel of undocumented immigrants from Sri Lanka through Haiti, Turks and Caicos Islands, and the Bahamas to the United States from on or about July 1, 2019, through on or about Oct. 10, 2019.

Acting Assistant Attorney General Nicholas L. McQuaid of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division; Acting U.S. Attorney Juan Antonio Gonzalez of the Southern District of Florida; and Special Agent in Charge Anthony Salisbury of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Miami made the announcement.

HSI Miami investigated the case with assistance from the HSI Human Smuggling Unit and U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The investigation was conducted under the Extraterritorial Criminal Travel Strike Force (ECT) program, a joint partnership between the Criminal Division and HSI. The ECT program focuses on human smuggling networks that may present particular national security or public safety risks, or present grave humanitarian concerns. ECT has dedicated investigative, intelligence and prosecutorial resources. ECT coordinates and receives assistance from other U.S. government agencies and foreign law enforcement authorities.

Trial Attorneys Rami S. Badawy and John Alex-Romano of the Criminal Division’s Human Rights and Special Prosecutions Section (HRSP) and Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian Dobbins of the Southern District of Florida prosecuted the case with support from HRSP Trial Attorney Jim Hepburn. The Justice Department’s Office of International Affairs provided significant assistance in the investigation and in securing the defendant’s extradition to the United States. The Department of Justice gratefully acknowledges the government of Turks and Caicos Islands for their valuable assistance.

(VANCOUVER) Court Report: A Canadian man, involved in a legal battle over his right to object to hormone treatment for his teenage trans child, has reportedly been jailed and denied bail for violating a gag order banning him from discussing the story #AceNewsDesk report

A Canadian man, involved in a legal battle over his right to object to hormone treatment for his teenage trans child, has reportedly been jailed and denied bail for violating a gag order banning him from discussing the story.

Father of trans teen to be kept in jail after speaking to press about resisting hormone injections for his child: ‘ Robert Hoogland was denied bail by the Vancouver Supreme Court on Friday and will remain in the North Fraser remand prison, according to news website the Post Millennial. He was arrested this week for contempt of court, due to his continued violation of an order restricting his speech regarding his transgender child. Hoogland fought a lengthy battle, defending his right to have a say in whether life-changing hormone therapy may be offered to a minor without parental consent’

21 Mar, 2021 10:59 

A girl at mom’s, a boy at dad’s: ‘Transgender’ Texas child caught in custody battle

Father of trans teen to be kept in jail after speaking to press about resisting hormone injections for his child

The signature case in Canada’s British Columbia (BC) started several years ago. At the age of 12, ‘Maxine’ (not the child’s real name), who was assigned female gender at birth, struggled to find her place in life, including her gender identity. Her school counselor suggested she may be transgender, referring her to a doctor and telling the school to treat her like a boy

Trans-identifying children can’t consent to puberty blockers, lawyers argue, in landmark UK case against Tavistock clinic

By the age of 14 the teen was identifying as a male trapped in a female body and was eager to start hormone therapy. The mother was supportive of the decision, but Hoogland – who was separated from the rest of the family but shared custody over the child – felt things were rushed. He said he would be OK with a transition if his child were older and more prepared to make an informed decision about a life-altering procedure. The consent form he refused to sign said hormones could result in various health complications, including elevated risk of heart disease, stroke, or diabetes, and even infertility.

This happened in 2018 and led to a series of court proceedings to decide whether Maxine could be the ultimate arbiter on the matter. That was the position of the gender clinic at BC Children’s Hospital, based on the Infants Act. The law says a “mature minor” may give consent to receiving healthcare:

My 12yo daughter’s friends and teachers pushed her into wanting to be a boy… thank God lockdown allowed her to escape’

Critics believe the law allows ideologically driven trans activists to lean on confused children and convince them into making a transition that would not necessarily be beneficial to them, while barring their legal guardians from having a say on the issue.

In Hoogland’s case, Canadian courts repeatedly sided with the hospital and allowed hormone therapy to proceed. Moreover, the father was significantly restricted in how he could speak about the case. He was ordered to always use Maxine’s chosen name, gender, and pronouns, and was banned from trying to convince his child to stop the therapy. A judge even stated that his interviews with the media, in which Hoogland referred to Maxine as his daughter and said things like “her DNA will not change through all these experiments that they do,” may be considered “family violence.”

A 2020 review of the conflict at the BC Court of Appeal opined against such framing, acknowledging there was no evidence that Hoogland (who is called ‘CD’ in court papers and ‘Clark’ in some earlier media reports) was intentionally abusive, and saying the conflict was about “a complex family relationship stemming from a profound disagreement about important issues of parental roles and medical treatment.” His plea to block the transition, however, was rejected.

The April 2019 gag order, which barred Hoogland from sharing information about Maxine’s “sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, mental or physical health, medical status or therapies” with the general public, also remained in place. The dad, who believes his family’s story should be properly discussed, disobeyed, and in early March an arrest warrant was issued against him at the request of the BC Attorney General. He surrendered to the authorities on March 16.

The denial of bail puts Hoogland between a rock and a hard place. One of the things he was reportedly admonished for by the judge was failing to take down a crowdfunding page, on which he explains his situation – in apparent breach of the gag order – and asks for donations to cover legal fees. He had been instructed to comply by April 12, when proceedings on his contempt of court case are scheduled to begin, but says he cannot do it from jail.

‘ Cuban Court Sentences 74-Year-Old Canadian CEO to 15-Years in Prison for Bribery in a Travesty of Justice’

#AceNewsServices – CUBA – September 28 – A Cuban court has sentenced 74-year-old Canadian auto-mobile executive Cy Tokmakjian to 15 years in prison for bribery and other economic and corruption-related charges, his company, the Tokmakjian Group, announced on Saturday, describing the case as “absurd” and a “travesty of justice.”

' Sentenced to 15-Years in Prison for Bribery '

‘ Sentenced to 15-Years in Prison for Bribery ‘

His two aides received sentences of 12 and 8 years, the Ontario-based transportation firm said in a statement.

' Prison where is being held prior to sentencing '

‘ Prison where is being held prior to sentencing ‘

The National Post reported in June that prosecutors were are seeking 15 years in prison for a Canadian businessman who was arrested in a high-profile crackdown on corruption, Cuban authorities said Monday.

The trial of Cy Tokmakjian, president of an automotive and transportation company, the Tokmakjian Group, concluded June 12 and a ruling is to be announced “in the coming days,” according to an announcement published by Communist Party newspaper Granma and other official media.

The case is being watched closely by the foreign business community in Cuba. President Raul Castro’s government has said there is no place for graft in the country, although foreign executives say gifts or cash payments are often demanded in business dealings conducted with low-paid government officials.

The company’s Cuban offices were raided in 2011 in an anti-graft investigation and round $100 million worth of the company’s assets were seized.

` Russia Expels Canadian Diplomat in `Tit-For-Tat ‘ Retaliation over Expulsion of Staff at Embassy in Ottawa’

#AceWorldNews – MOSCOW – April 22 – Moscow has expelled the First Secretary at the Canadian embassy, sources in the foreign ministry tell their news agency (Tass)

Margarita Atanasov will be forced to leave Russia within a fortnight.

The source explained that the diplomatic gesture is a reprisal for the expulsion of a Russian assistant military attaché earlier this month, which was in itself justified as a counter-measure to an earlier forced recall of a Canadian official. “Russian officials have had their visa applications rejected for no reason,” explained the source (RT)

“The entire situation is being stoked by Canada’s destructive anti-Russian position over Ukraine.”

According to the website of the Canadian Embassy to Russia, Atanasov was responsible for immigration issues at the diplomatic mission (VoR)

` Heartbleed Bug has Attacked ` Mumsnet and a Canadian Tax Authority ' with Data and Social Insurance Numbers Stolen '

#AceSecurityNews – UK – Canada – April 14 – (BBC) – A leading UK site for parents and the Canadian tax authority have both announced they have had data stolen by hackers exploiting the Heartbleed bug.

Mumsnet – which says it has 1.5 million registered members – said that it believed that the cyber thieves may have obtained passwords and personal messages before it patched its site.

The Canada Revenue Agency said that 900 people’s social insurance numbers had been stolen.

These are the first confirmed losses.

The Mumsnet site’s founder Justine Roberts told the BBC that it became apparent that user data was at risk when her own username and password were used to post a message on-line.

She said the hackers then informed Mumsnet’s administrators that the attack was linked to the Heartbleed flaw and told them the company’s data was not safe.

“On Friday 11 April, it became apparent that what is widely known as the Heartbleed bug had been used to access data from Mumsnet users’ accounts,” the London-based website added in an email to its members.

“We have no way of knowing which Mumsnetters were affected by this.

“The worst case scenario is that the data of every Mumsnet user account was accessed.

“It is possible that this information could then have been used to log in as you and give access to your posting history, your personal messages and your personal profile, although we should say that we have seen no evidence of anyone’s account being used for anything other than to flag up the security breach, thus far.”
