first_imgTORONTO – Detour Gold Corp. says it has raised concerns with securities regulators about statements by a U.S. hedge fund.The mining company says it notified the Ontario Securities Commission of alleged “concerning and unlawful behaviour” by Paulson and Co., which it says is meant to pressure the board into a quick sale of the company.Paulson and Co. had earlier released a statement saying it had been informed that Detour Gold had been approached by a major gold mining company interested in potentially acquiring it.The investment firm says it will go ahead with efforts to try and replace the board of directors at Detour because of the company’s approach to the matter.Detour Gold says Paulson and Co.’s statements are false and misleading, and it does not have a sale process in place nor has it received offers to purchase its shares.Detour’s share price closed up $1.45 or 11.84 per cent to $13.70 after Paulson issued the statement about a potential offer.last_img read more

first_imgCALGARY – Royal Dutch Shell’s name is being removed from a tiny 65-year-old employee credit union as its visibility in the Alberta oil and gas industry continues to shrink in the wake of the sale of most of its oilsands assets last year.The rebranding of the Shell Employees’ Credit Union as Spark the Energy Credit Union (a name chosen in part because the initials stay the same) was celebrated Thursday at its only branch on the main floor of Shell Canada’s downtown Calgary headquarters.It follows a vote in June in which individual members who own the credit union voted 96 per cent in favour of moving to a brand that would allow growth by being more inclusive of a broader Alberta energy worker market.Credit union president and chairman Adam Battistessa, who is also the government relations manager for Shell in Calgary, says the name change is directly linked to the oilsands sale because that event resulted in thousands of Shell employee members switching to work for the buyer, Canadian Natural Resources Ltd.In the $12.7-billion deal with Canadian Natural and Marathon Oil in 2017, Shell sold all but 10 per cent of its interest in the Athabasca Oil Sands Project mine in northern Alberta but retained ownership of its Edmonton-area Scotford refinery and chemicals plants.Earlier this month, it announced with its partners final approval to build the $40-billion LNG Canada liquefied natural gas export terminal at Kitimat, B.C.last_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA — The new year brings with it tax changes at the federal level that will affect just about every Canadian, as well as small businesses.One of the first changes workers will see is an increase in Canada Pension Plan premiums coming off their paycheques — the first of five years of hikes to pay for enhancements to the pension plan.Employment Insurance premiums, on the other hand, will drop by four cents for every $100 of insurable earnings.Meanwhile, the small business tax rate is going down from 10 to nine per cent. But changes to how much so-called passive income a small business can hold are also coming into effect, which is expected to push some businesses into paying a much higher corporate tax rate.Also in 2019, low income workers can qualify for an increase in the Canada Workers Benefit. But they will have to wait until 2020 to receive the extra money.The federal government’s new carbon pricing system will also come into effect in provinces that don’t have carbon pricing mechanisms of their own, resulting in higher costs for fossil fuels by April, and direct rebates to partly offset the increased costs.Conservative Opposition Leader Andrew Scheer is already gearing up to make it an issue leading to the October federal election, calling 2019 the year of the carbon tax.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

first_img Comments Share your voice TV and Movies Digital Media 2:27 Tags What’s new to stream in April 2019 Netflix Now playing: Watch this: 5 Tuesday’s report comes after some, including legendary director Steven Spielberg and several theater chains, have said Netflix-distributed films should count as “made for TV movies” that contend for Emmy awards, not Oscars. Critics say the company only puts movies into cinemas as “token” screenings purely to qualify for awards like the Oscars. Netflix won big at the Oscars this year, taking home four awards in total for Roma and a documentary short.  Stay tuned for whatever comes out of that meeting of Academy leaders this month. First published April 2, 12:59 p.m. PT.Update 1:21 p.m. PT: Adds statement from an Academy spokesperson.  Netflix film Roma took home three awards at the Oscars this year. Getty Images The US Justice Department is concerned that potential rule changes by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences may hurt Netflix and other streaming services’ eligibility for the Oscars, according to a report from Variety on Tuesday. Changing Academy rules to exclude Netflix and others may raise antitrust issues and violate competition law, the agency reportedly warned in a March 21 letter to Academy CEO Dawn Hudson.”In the event that the Academy — an association that includes multiple competitors in its membership — establishes certain eligibility requirements for the Oscars that eliminate competition without procompetitive justification, such conduct may raise antitrust concerns,” Makan Delrahim, the chief of the DOJ’s antitrust division, reportedly wrote.The Academy acknowledged receipt of the letter but said little beyond that.”We’ve received a letter from the Department of Justice and have responded accordingly,” said a spokesperson of the Academy in an email statement. “The Academy’s Board of Governors will meet on April 23 for its annual awards rules meeting, where all branches submit possible updates for consideration.” Neither the DOJ nor Netflix immediately responded to requests for comment. last_img read more

NY attorney general resigns after sexual abuse report

first_imgThis combination of file pictures created on 08 May, 2018 shows Michelle Manning Barish (L) on 03 May, 2016 in New York, attorney general of New York Eric Schneiderman (C) on 12 April, 2018 in New York City and producer Tanya Selvastram on 20 February, 2014 in New York City. Photo: AFPNew York state’s top prosecutor, a public champion of the #MeToo movement, resigned on Monday hours after being accused by The New Yorker magazine of physically assaulting four women.It was an abrupt fall from power for Eric Schneiderman, the New York attorney general and a Donald Trump opponent whose office had launched multiple legal challenges against the Republican administration.”In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me,” Schneiderman said in a statement.”While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time. I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on 8 May.”Two of the women spoke to the magazine on the record, alleging that Schneiderman repeatedly hit them, often after drinking, frequently in bed and never with their consent.Both say they sought medical attention after having been slapped hard across the ear and face, and also choked, the magazine said.The New Yorker said none of the women classified the behavior as consensual.Earlier, Schneiderman issued a statement denying that he had assaulted anyone or that he had ever engaged in non-consensual sex.”In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity,” he said.- Nothing ‘as despicable’ -Schneiderman is the latest powerful man to fall in the wake of the avalanche of sexual misconduct allegations from women that have poured forth since the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke late last year and effectively ended the Hollywood movie producer’s career.In February, Schneiderman sued The Weinstein Company for failing to protect its employees from the disgraced mogul despite multiple complaints from staff.”We have never seen anything as despicable as what we’ve seen right here,” Schneiderman said then.He had also been instructed by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to review a 2015 decision by the Manhattan district attorney not to prosecute Weinstein over allegations of assault.One of the women named in The New Yorker story described her experiences with Schneiderman as awful.Michelle Manning Barish said he slapped her after they had been drinking.”It was horrendous,” she told the magazine.”It just came out of nowhere. My ear was ringing. I lost my balance and fell backward onto the bed.”I sprang up, but at this point there was very little room between the bed and him. I got up to try to shove him back, or take a swing, and he pushed me back down. He then used his body weight to hold me down, and he began to choke me. The choking was very hard. It was really bad. I kicked. In every fiber, I felt I was being beaten by a man,” she said.After the allegations against Schneiderman emerged, fellow Democrat Cuomo urged him to resign.”My personal opinion is that, given the damning pattern of facts and corroboration laid out in the article, I do not believe it is possible for Eric Schneiderman to continue to serve as attorney general,” Cuomo said.Schneiderman “has made a career railing against this type of abuse. Yet apparently he intends to revictimize these courageous women who have come forward by pulling out that age old sexist trope that they wanted it,” said Debra Katz, a lawyer for Manning Barish.last_img read more
