From April, if you live in social housing and have a spare bedroom, you will have to either downsize or face a cut in your benefits: A reduction of 14% if you have one spare bedroom, or 25% if you have two or more spare bedrooms.

 

An estimated 660,000 social housing tenants will be affected, according to the National Housing Federation.

 

They include disabled people, divorced parents, foster carers, parents with children in the armed forces and those at university.

Edmonton police charge blogger with LGBTQ hate crime

Edmonton police charge blogger with LGBTQ hate-related offence
'It made me concerned for my own safety,' said complainant Kris Wells

Edmonton police have charged a local blogger with a hate-related offence for allegedly targeting some local well-known LGBTQ advocates in a series of online posts, CBC News has learned.

Court records show police have charged Barry Winters, 67, with wilful promotion of hatred in ongoing posts for his blog The Baconfat Papers over a two-year period ending Dec. 31, 2016.

The charge is the result of a lengthy investigation after Kris Wells, director of the Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services at the University of Alberta, and at least one other LGBTQ advocate, complained more than a year ago.

As an advocate for human rights, Wells said he is regularly harassed by phone and online.

"But this particular kind of message really did cross the line and targeted me personally," he said in an interview. "It made me concerned for my own safety."

Over the past year there have been several high-profile investigations by the Edmonton Police Service's hate crimes detail but the threshold is high to lay a hate-related charge.

But Marni Panas, another well-known activist, said when she first stumbled upon the blog in May 2016 she feared for her personal safety and decided to report it.

"I was quite concerned because this person was from Edmonton, and if you read it you will see this person has a clear level of hate towards gay people, transgender," said Panas.

Marni Panas said the Edmonton charge is a reminder to all communities to report hate-based incidents. (Submitted by Marni Panas)
Panas said she worries her complaint will make her more of a target "but yet if we remain silent, words have a way of turning into action. And so when we see it we must point it out and talk about it and report it."

Panas said she was emotional when police called her two weeks ago to inform her of the charge.

"They took it incredibly seriously and clearly they took the due diligence that they needed to find grounds to charge this man," said Panas. "It just reinforces how important our police service is, and how actively engaged they are in trying to stop hate. And a reminder to the rest of community, all communities, that when you see something you report it."

The Alberta Hate Crimes Committee advocacy group Tuesday put out a news release expressing concern about the most recent data from Statistics Canada showing that, overall in Alberta, hate incidents were up by 39 per cent in 2015, climbing from 139 to 193, compared to a five per cent rise nationally.

The Alberta Muslim Public Affairs Council, which tracks Islamophobic-related incidents, says members are seeing an upsurge.

"It seems in the age of Trump that some people feel more and more emboldened to spew this hateful rhetoric and they're going to be held accountable," said Wells, singling out those "hiding behind keyboards" to send hateful messages.

"I think that's the key message that comes out of this case with the Edmonton Police Service — that you cannot hide if you're going to promote hate," said Wells.

EPS declined comment on the charge. But a police spokesperson said the issue will be discussed Wednesday at a news conference planned to talk about hate crimes.

Wells said he doesn't favour stifling free and fair speech and respects differences of opinion expressed through constructive conversations. "But no one should have to experience this level of victimization and trauma," he added.

Hate incidents don't just target the individual but also send a message that tells the wider community they don't belong and "they're not safe here," he said.

Lewd, homophobic flyers target Eggen, Wells

In another case involving Wells, Education Minister David Eggen's department has made a complaint to police after the distribution in his Edmonton riding of lewd, defamatory, and homophobic flyers.

The flyers, which CBC isn't printing due to their highly offensive nature, falsely claim Eggen and Wells sought to educate school children about sexual acts, including one described in crude detail.

"These images are highly inappropriate for children and I can't begin to imagine why someone would deem it reasonable to distribute them publicly," wrote Eggen in a statement. "My understanding is this matter has been turned over to the police."

The pamphlet also notes that a government-funded website, overseen by Wells' organization and meant to support students who belong to gay-straight alliances, was forced to remove some online links in March after complaints from Edmonton blogger Theresa Ng.

CBC requested comment through the email address provided at the bottom of the pamphlet but received no response.

Pride complaints

Meanwhile, several incidents that occurred during last weekend's Pride celebrations in Edmonton have also been reported to police, including a rainbow flag cut down at an Edmonton high school. Police confirmed alleged harassment of some revellers caught on video are being looked at by hate crime investigators.

But Wells said "the love and energy" at the Pride festival "far outweighs the small-minded actions of hate and homophobia" in the community.

"We we will not be afraid, we will not hide away," said Wells. "In many cases these hateful responses only embolden us where we can turn this hurt to help ... and a force for building inclusive communities all across our province and country."

Wilfully promoting hatred carries a maximum penalty of up to two years in prison. Winters appeared in court June 9 but no further court appearances have been scheduled.

Passports of the European Union - Wikipedia

Passports of the European Union - Wikipedia

The European Union itself does not issue ordinary passports, but ordinary passport booklets issued by its 28 member states share a common format.

This common format features burgundy-coloured covers (with the exception of Croatia) emblazoned—in the official language(s) of the issuing country (and sometimes its translation into English and French)—with the title "European Union", followed by the name(s) of the member state, its coat of arms, the word "PASSPORT", together with the biometric passport symbol at the bottom centre of the front cover.
Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:
Some EU member states also issue non-EU passports to certain people who have a nationality which does not render them citizens of the European Union (e.g., British Overseas Territories Citizens except those with a connection to Gibraltar, British Protected Persons and British Subjects).

Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:
If you owe less than $625,000 on your home you probably qualify for HARP. This program was passed by Obama to help the middle class by giving them a once in a lifetime mortgage bailout. The program itself is totally free and doesn't add any cost to homeowner's refi's. Like most government benefits though, this program will expire, but there is still time left for hundreds of thousands of qualified homeowners to take advantage before the programs expires in 2017.

Justin Trudeau Says Alberta Foster Care Deaths Shocking, Calls For Change http://m.huffingtonpost.ca/2014/01/28/justin-trudeau-alberta-foster-care-deaths_n_4682809.html?utm_hp_ref=ca-foster-care-deaths-alberta

Justin Trudeau Says Alberta Foster Care Deaths Shocking, Calls For Change
01/28/2014 06:51 EST | Updated 01/28/2014 07:59 EST
Seema DhawanThe Huffington Post Alberta

CP
Federal Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau says he is shocked by the high number of children who have died while in the Alberta foster care system and has called on all levels of government to deal with the issue.

In a newly released letter sent to Alberta Liberal Leader Raj Sherman in December, Trudeau noted that the majority of deaths were of Aboriginal children.

"These deaths were preventable, and we must work to ensure that this horrific trend is reversed," he said.

"The alarming rate of deaths among Aboriginal children follows an unfortunate and all-too familiar pattern in our country, and the persistent gap in economic and social conditions for Aboriginal Peoples in Canada simply cannot be allowed to endure."

In November, theAlberta Liberals asked the prime minister for a public inquiry into the deaths of foster children after a series of Postmedia stories revealed that the province covered up the deaths of 89 foster care children since 1999.

"It is the responsibility of all levels of government to work together," said Trudeau.

"This must include ending the funding disparity for Aboriginal Child Welfare agencies, as every child deserves the same level of support, care and equality of opportunity."

Sherman echoed the sentiment, saying "The federal government has a duty to the First Nations."

"The big question is why do we have so many children in government care to begin with," he told The Huffington Post Alberta. He says improving the lives of children so they don't need government care at all is a more holistic and economical approach.

The Alberta government is holding a conference on Tuesday and Wednesday to determine how to publicly report more information on children who die in government care.

"It's a small baby step in the right direction," says Sherman, but says prevention of the deaths isn't part of the discussion.

Alberta's chief medical examiner said on Tuesday that the system was too disconnected when it comes to determining why and how children die in government care.

Dr. Anny Sauvageau said her office needs a broader mandate to examine not only the manner of death, but to propose ways to prevent similar tragedies.

Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:
So until they are engaged, teenage traveller girls are subjected to the 'grabbing' courtship ritual, which sees boys angling for a kiss.

Strict rules stipulate girls aren't allowed to approach boys, so it's up to the males, aka the 'grabbers', to tempt the girl away from her group of friends and try to get a kiss off her, even sometimes going as far as twisting her arm.

Starrett City, Brooklyn - Wikipedia

Starrett City, Brooklyn - Wikipedia

Starrett City (informally and colloquially known as the Spring Creek Towers) is a housing development in the Spring Creek ( East New York) section of Brooklyn, New York City. It opened in 1974, and assumed the name of Spring Creek Towers in 2002, though it is still popularly known as Starrett City.

Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:
Starrett City has a total of 5,881 units, 3,569 of which are Section 8 assisted living units.

To determine the value of a particular housing program, we looked at the cost of rent versus the inspection score awarded to the property during its most recent inspection. Starrett City scored a value rating of 2.0 out of 5, which should be a major red flag. This score is significantly below the average.

Contract rent for a studio unit at this housing program is $1,897 USD, which makes it an incredibly expensive option in Kings County. Note that as a Section 8 tenant, your rent will be based on your income. The unit is 40% more expensive than the fair market price of a non-Section 8 unit, although the rent a Section 8 tenant pays is dependent upon income. http://section-8-housing.credio.com/l/18462/Starrett-City
