One day after the police announced they were increasing their presence on Toronto’s transit with 80 officers, many riders on the busiest TTC lines said they hadn’t noticed much of a difference. Damira Pan, a transit user, said she has witnessed violence on transit in the past, and having extra officers at subway stations made her feel safer. Seungbin Yoo, another commuter, said a visible police presence on transit could prevent violence, including potential hate crimes. Jaime Wilson, a transit rider, said having more police in the system doesn’t help address potential underlying causes of violence, including homelessness and mental health issues. There’s been a 20 per cent increase in TTC violence over the past year.

“Speaking with (executives) at some of these credit unions, the message is that they’ve seen considerable growth in products like contract-rate qualification mortgages,” McLister said. In 2012, the federal government paved the way for credit unions to expand beyond provincial borders to become federal financial institutions, but there was very little uptake. “We offer contract-rate qualification mortgages in some instances,” said Teresa Pagnutti, senior manager of public relations at the St. Catharines, Ont.-based Meridian. The credit unions’ gains were achieved even as the number of homes bought and sold was falling. “Only a small percentage (of credit unions that offer them) promote contract-rate qualifying publicly or to third parties” such as brokers, McLister said.

Alberta Justice spokespeople deliver duelling statements on prosecutor email reviewEDMONTON — An email probe into whether Alberta Premier Danielle Smith’s office interfered with Crown prosecutors took a confusing turn Friday after two government spokespeople delivered duelling statements that raised questions over how far back the search went. The Justice Department said Monday it had done a four-month search of ingoing, outgoing and deleted emails and found no evidence of contact. Two days later, Alberta Justice communications director Charles Mainville said in a statement that deleted emails are wiped from the system after 30 days, meaning the search for deleted emails may not have covered the entire time period in question. Smith has given six versions in recent weeks of what she has said to justice officials about COVID-19 cases. She has said she reminded justice officials of general prosecution guidelines, but at other times reminded them to consider factors unique to COVID-19 cases.

Smith and any of the supposedly aggrieved parties she mentioned in her press release are free to sue the CBC and its reporters for defamation. The information uncovered would clearly be of significant benefit to the Alberta public. The release concluded: “All communications between the Premier, her staff, the Minister of Justice and Ministry of Justice public servants have been appropriate and made through the proper channels. They mean even less when they are conveyed in the form of an angry government press release. And unlike some news organizations, I doubt the CBC will have much trouble corroborating its sources’ claims.

Participants getting close look at Indigenous-led projectsYoung people from all over the country are in Whitehorse this week to take part in an Indigenous clean energy conference. The youth participants, aged 18 to 30, are visiting the Yukon through a program called Generation Power, which offers career training for young people wanting to get involved in the clean energy field. “There’s a lot of Indigenous-led clean energy projects going on in the Yukon right now,” she said. “I think in clean energy, we’ve seen there’s not as much Indigenous representation,” Grosbeck said. “For me personally, clean energy was way outside of my realm, I didn’t have a lot of information coming into this project at all,” he said.
