The Canadian parliament blames China for the Uighur genocide

Muhammad Ali Bukhari, CNNG News, Toronto

On Monday, 266 out of Canada’s 338 members of parliament voted against this motion. Although most cabinet members were absent from voting. The House of Commons also explicitly blames for the country’s indiscriminate killings of Uighurs and other Turkish-speaking Muslims in China.

The said proposal was made in Parliament by the opposition Conservative Party. It said China’s state action in the Xinjiang region was tantamount to genocide in accordance with UN policy adopted in 1948. In addition to the Conservative members, a significant number of ruling Liberal party MPs voted in favour of the proposal. The final vote count showed that 266 MPs present voted without any opposition, only two MPs have remained officially absent. (more…)

Le due vite
dei prigionieri di guerra

SACCO (Salerno) – Ci sono stati uomini che hanno vissuto più vite, loro malgrado. Vite anche radicalmente differenti l’una dall’altra. “Scherzi” della guerra, verrebbe da dire nel caso di Giuseppe Polito, nato a Sacco (paese in provincia di Salerno) nel 1914, italiano fino al 1941, poi indiano e australiano fino al 1946 e, infine, di nuovo italiano per il resto dei suoi giorni.

Sciopero insegnanti: St. Raphael non è sicura

TORONTO – Il caos regna alla St. Raphael Catholic School. Numerosi insegnanti si rifiutano di lavorare ed alcuni genitori non portano i figli a scuola.

Causa di questo scompiglio è un rapporto dal quale risulta che i livelli di anidride carbonica nellaria spesso superano quelli raccomandati. E così mentre gli esperti ritengono che ci siano preoccupazioni per la salute, alcuni insegnanti affermano di avvertire da anni sintomi riconducibili alla concentrazione di Co2 nellaria.

EXCLUSIVE Tcdsb and Minister Lecce in legal troubles

TORONTO – Enough is enough! It was expected that Del Grande would fight back. An Application for Judicial Review (JR) between Michael Del Grande and the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) has been filed in Divisional Court. Understandably, it took a while to materialize in its final version.

In its reading, it resembles a thin veil pulled back that reveals the governance rot beneath the surface that has been afflicting Catholic education boards and the TCDSB in particular. It also exposes the perverse – even illegal – meddling by Queen’s Park in areas arguably beyond its jurisdiction.Read More>>>
