President of the president and governor of Oshawa Generals, Rocco Tullio, says that the five-day Memorial Cup-winning club has not explored the possibility of changing its name now that General Motors plans to leave the city.

The General is named after the automated giant, with GM being their original sponsor when they joined the Ontario Hockey Association in 1937.

After the announcement earlier this week that GM would explode its plant and remove its 2,500 workers until the end of 2019, social media was called for the team to change its name.

"We have passed the history there. We've spent 80 years. We like Bobby Orr," said Tullio.

"… I understand it and trust me when it goes to the home so people are angry, right, and they want to waste and I get it, but as an organization, we have not even considered it at that point."

Tullio – whose hometown of Windsor, Ont., Saw its GM trim and transdisciplinary plants in 2008 and 2010, respectively – called "lightweight" newspapers and said that the team, along with the link, looks for ways to reach those affected by the dismissals.

"This is not a hockey at this stage of the game, it is about supporting these families in our community," he said.

Jordan Sanders, 26, who works at the assembly line of the GM factory, was at Oshawa's first home game on Saturday, when the news broke with a three-year-old daughter, Peyton, two-year-old son, Cohen and her father, Doug .

Sanders, a single mother, who was on the left of motherhood since October and worked in the factory for over five years, argues that if GM leaves the city, the hockey team must change its name.

"They do not deal with any of the workers with no respect, since they have just done this for almost 10 years to the workers there and I would not want to stay around such a name in Oshawa," said Sanders, referring to the 2009 closing of the plant of GM truck truck.

Sanders Doug's father, who spent 34 years at GM, helped her get the job at the company after working for nutrient plants in the area.

Doug Sanders, who had bought and withdrew from that plant, was less sure to change the team.

The former union representative and municipal counselor, whose son is also working at Lear, a general plant in Whitby, Ont., And expects he will lose his job, – said he could not see that a team in Oshawa was not called General.

He noticed that the team was "built on the back" by automatic workers who donated money for the construction of the Oshawa Civic Auditorium, which opened in 1964.

Oshawa had no team between 1953 and 1962 after her previous home, Hambly's Arena, was burned.

Besides the ridge in its jersey, the club has few remaining links to GM in 2018. After the Generals left the Authority in 2006, the city opened a new city center, called General Motors Center. But these nomination rights expired in 2016 and Tullio said the team no longer has a direct affiliation with the American car giant.

Seasonal score Ron Gallant, 67, who worked at GM for almost 30 years and was also part of the truck plant in 2009, said it would be "strange" if the team changed its name, but understood why they might want to move .

"I mean, why should you be associated with something that basically destroyed the community?" He said.

Andrew Landry, 39, who came to the game with his seven-year-old son, Callum – hopes that the team could embrace a "change of focus" rather than a new name, showing the Canadian forces of the city as a possible inspiration.

"We have five Memorial Cups under the name of the Generals and I can not see that changing," he said.

John Gray, currently the city councilor and the mayor of Oshawa between 2003 and 2010, said that dropping the Generals would be a "gross reaction".

"I think that's small and vengeful – we are the Generals, are there (General Motorsport) here or not," he said.

The links of John Snowden to GM last several generations. The 54-year-old worked in a number of roles for the company, including in production and as an electrician, returning to when he was a student in the 1980s. Both his brothers also had jobs with the automaker, as well as his grandfather.

The native Oshawa laments the potential loss of the good jobs in his community, but hopes that GM operations in the city can be saved and believes that its hockey team will also be true to its past.

"I think that a General General is always General. I think we must keep it as the General Kings. Return to our roots from where it was."

"I do not like to change names, I guess I'm a rocket about the old way of things."

Hugo Hernan Ruiz, 42-year-old engineer systems of Colombia, has masters in his field and ran the IT department of oil in his homeland.

His French is very proud of having arrived in Quebec in 2016 with little knowledge of the language. But as many highly educated people in the province, Ruiz struggled to find a job, although he was elected as a capable immigrant by provincial authorities.

After failing to find a job, he decided to open his own consulting business to take advantage of his South American contacts. He asked for a provincial program that helps business entrepreneurs with gifts, marketing and training.

But he was rejected because the program was for people who were on welfare or who had received Dock Insurance – and he did not have a category.

It would become a common refrain, he said, as he tried unsuccessfully to sail the Quebec bureaucracy.

"I think it's necessary to be a reflection," Ruiz said over a coffee at a stairs room in Laval's bedroom, where he lived with his wife and two children. "What happens to immigrants who are trying to achieve and who do not come here to live outside the government?"

Because Quebec-Czech Francois Legault is moving to reduce immigration, he says, to ensure that newcomers learn French and find work, Ruiz's case shows the obstacles and contradictions to educated immigrants who are neither power nor wealthy.

Yann Hairaud, head of a central immigration-enterprise center, said he knew about cases where qualified workers find options closed to them because they are not well-being.

"Unfortunately yes," he said in an interview. "These situations can occur. There is a certain incapacity in some rules that exist for novices."

Shortly after Ruiz arrived at Quebec, he wrote in a French language program to study what is called the Internet of things – the network of objects that contain electronics and can interact with each other.

"I thought, instead of taking French courses, I would take a French course in my field, so I'll learn both," he said.

He graduated with professional certification last August – but because the government did not pay for his training, more doors were closed to him. Public exchange exchange swapped its eye, but to obtain it, he had to qualify for a provincial salary grant.

He was rejected because of the grant, he explained, because the government did not pay for his training.

"I have brought all my savings with me (from Colombia) and I have prepared financially to avoid asking for well-being," said Ruiz. "I do not criticize the Dangerous Department or the government, but I think the country should consider whether the immigration system encourages immigrants to welcome."

Dominique Anglia, a critic of immigration for the provincial Liberals, has not heard of immigrants by taking advantage of land jobs, but she acknowledged that those of social assistance have a certain advantage.

Anglo, former economist minister, said in an interview that "a high percentage" of immigrants fails to complete the necessary training to have their skills recognized in Quebec, partly due to the high costs involved.

"When you are doing good, you have some support that can help you to actually do work and everything else," she said. She accused the discrepancy on government departments that do not work on the hands.

The spokesman of the Department of Immigrants, Chantal Bouchard, said that "obviously a priority" integration, but reported questions about the obstacles faced with qualifying immigrants to the Enterprise Department.

Vincent Breton's Enterprise Department did not respond directly to questions about whether people who do not receive good health have been disadvantaged in search of work.

"As you know, the Enterprise Department offers many measures and programs for those who want to integrate workforce," Breton said by email, adding that each file analyzes its individual value.

Hairaud, whose CITIM organization is working with around 1,800 immigrants a year, said that the Employment Department gives priority to some groups, including those who are on welfare or unemployment.

Quebec looks for good workers, he noticed, but they are inevitable for government support programs, if they are too much thought.

"It's a contradiction, the right hand does not know what's left," said Hairaud.

Despite the difficulties, the enterprise landscape improves immigrants, partly due to the strong economy of Quebec. In August 2018, the unemployment rate for immigrants between 25 and 54 years fell by 6.1% after hovering over 10% for much of the previous decade, the Institut du Quebec reported.

Ruiz said he was happy in Canada. His two young children are in school, and he wants to start a new life here. But he asks the value of Canada places in the first generation of immigrants.

"My experience seeking work was strange," he said. "What is life for professionals who come here? Is the first generation of immigrants important to Canada?"

Canadian politicians who were past and present offered their condolences on Saturday after the death of former US president George H.W. Bush, with former prime minister Brian Mulroney calling it a "huge loss".

Bush, who served in the Oval Office from 1989 to 1993, died Friday night at his home in Houston 94 years old – only eight months after the death of his wife of over 70 years, Barbara Bush.

Mulroney, whose nine years in power relocated with Bush's four-year-olds, said the last time when he saw his friend was in late September when he was in Kennebunkport, Maine to accept the George Bush Award for Excellence in Public Service.

Bush was not enough to attend the event, so Mulroney paid the previous president a visit home before the ceremony.

Bush asked to listen to Mulroney's speech, so the former prime minister had read it. The two friends also spent time listening to music and speech.

"It was just a lovely experience, and my last visit with him after all these years," Mulroney said Saturday in an interview.

"I think we both knew that this was probably the last visit we will do."

Mulroney said that between the two executive actions of the leaders, two emphasized: the signing of the Canada-U.S. Air Quality agreement, in 1991; and the negotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement, signed in 1994 after both left office.

Bush "was a great friend of Canada, and he made great opportunities for Canadian history," said Mulroney.

Mulroney said that Bush asked him three years ago, if he spoke in his mourning, and he said he would be "honorable" to do so.

"I've spent some time about it. I have not finished yet, but I think I know what I mean," said Mulroney.

The White House announced Saturday that a state burial for the former president would take place at the National Cathedral of Washington. President Donald Trump also closed government offices on Wednesday and appointed it a national day of mourning, which traditionally takes place on the same day as the Washington component of late presidential mourning.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also raised his thoughts on Bush's legacy, saying that his former president's independence to his country was clear.

"His unique spirit of service and commitment to a country would mark each of his roles – including in the Congress, as an ambassador to the United Nations, as head of the Central Intelligence and the White House," said Trudeau of the former president's written statement.

Canadian conservatives also proposed their affections, with federal conservative leader Andrew Scheer also recommending Bush as a "friend of Canada".

"He was truly a gentleman of American politics and one of the most fundamental advocacy of freedom and democracy," Scheer said in a statement.

Former Prime Minister Stephen Harper tweeted that Bush was a "conservative leader and a deeply dedicated family," which leaves an incredible legacy.

Some of Canada's preservative capitals also tweeted their condolences.

"We will remember Canada's friendship and a good spirit," Ontario Premier Doug Ford tweeted. "Let him stay in peace."

Meanwhile, Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe wrote that Bush was a "humble, respected political figure during service and during its many years of presidency."

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been in charge of two of the world's most controversial leaders – Russian President Vladimir Putin and Prince Mohammed bin Salman – Saudi Arabia – to discuss concerns about issues unfolded under their watch.

In Buenos Aires on Saturday, Trudeau told a news conference that he had put pressure on Putin directly on actions that had led to the ruskap of three Ukrainian naval ships near Crimea – a message that the top Ukrainian officials wanted to convey to Trudeau.

Trudeau said he had told Putin about the need to release prisoners of Ukrainian sailors during a meeting of world leaders on Friday, but it was not convenient for Putin to respond to the comments.

"For me, it is obvious that this is a matter that concerns not only Canada but some of our NATO allies," said Trudeau Saturday. "We all hope very much that there will be a reduction and liberation of those prisoners."

The message from Trudeau to Putin came on the heels of Friday's statement by the foreign ministers of Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, United Kingdom and the United States, as well as the high representative of the European Union, expressing anxiety about Russia's actions against Ukraine in the Kerch Stone and surrounding waters.

Trudeau also pointed out on Saturday that he spoke directly with Saudi Arabia's heir at the edge of a dinner offered by Argentina held on Friday night.

"I had the right to speak directly with the heir, in which we discussed the diplomatic discord between Canada and Saudi Arabia," he said.

Trudeau said that he also raised the need for better responses to the killing of journalist Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi and Raif Badawi's ongoing jail, as well as the need for immediate ceasefire and humanitarian aid in Yemen.

The civil war in Yemen constitutes the biggest human disaster occurring in the world today, Trudeau said, adding it is an issue that was raised during the G20 summit.

"The situation is bad and gets worse," he said.

Trudeau stressed that he continues to create "frank and direct" conversations with leadership issues, adding what Canadians are expecting to do and what the world expected from Canada.

Canada and other countries have faced the difficulty of tackling the presence of the Saudi prince of Saudi Arabia, known for the initial MBS, at the G20 summit.

The trip marked the highest profile profile from abroad for the heir from Khashoggi's murder.

On Saturday, Trudeau also sat down with the French president Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May.

During both two-party sessions, Trudeau discussed Khashog's octopusdom at the Saudi Consulate Office in Istanbul and Canadian sanctions made on 17 salaried nations involved in the killing.

Foreign ministers Chrystia Freeland announced on Thursday the federal government watched the participation of every person it banned and concluded that they directly participated or complicated the killing.

The sanctions release the Canadian assets of the goals and make them unacceptable to Canada.

Earlier this month, the United States imposed its own sanctions to salad officials for the same reason.

Saudi Arabia is based to host the G20 summit in 2020.

Prime Minister Rachel Notley discusses the case for imposing industry oil production cut into a letter to Albertians before scheduled news meeting.

The provincial government says that Notley will talk to reporters on Sunday evening about the next steps to ensure that Albertians get the best possible for their energy resources.

The prime minister also released an op-edged piece where she says that the province should now act to deal with an increasing glue of oil that she blames for lack of pipeline capacity.

Notley says in the letter that there are two competing ideas for short-term help – whether they allow the market to order themselves, risking potential jobs and commercial closures, or interfere with and temporarily restrict occasional production.

The prime minister asked for a cuts after a speech she had made to the Toronto Board of Trade on Thursday, but would not say if she was against or against the idea.

Her chosen letter says that her government will decide on Sunday.

"While consensus seems to have been formed among some political leaders, no such consensus exists in the industry. In this point, no industry agrees," says the Notley letter.

"Thus, Alberta, it's the best for us, all of us, 4.3 million of us, the owners of our oil resources. As owners we have a duty to reach the most valuable value."

The letter says 35 million barrels valuable than Alberto Petroleum is sitting in storage. As a result, Alberta's crude price sits around a $ 10 barrel, which is said by Notley is a fraction of what other world producers receive. She said it means that Alberta loses $ 80 million a day.

The prime minister has already said that the province will buy as many 80 locomotives and 7,000 runners – it would be expected to cost hundreds of millions of dollars – to move the province's excessive oil to markets, with the first tickets expected at the end of 2019.

But she says in her letter that rail cars, new tubes and growing home-refined capacity will not help with a very short time.

"We have to do more and do it now," Notley writes. "No choice is without delay."

Cenovus Energy proposed the idea of ​​production cut last month and the idea is supported by opposition politicians in Alberta, including United Conservative Party Leader Jason Kenney.

However, Imperial and Husky said Friday, they are opposed to unintentional production couples, but they support rail investments because they could help improve market access.

The board of the federation of the liberal federals says that Raj Raj Grewal is without the party.

Ajax-MP Mark Holland says in a tweet that he confirmed Saturday morning with the Speaker of the House of Commons that Grewal "is not a member of the Liberal Cause."

The parliamentary for Brampton East took Facebook on Friday to say that he had repayed his large debt debts and now reconsidered his quick decision to abandon politics.

He announced last month that he was going down to deal with "personal and medical reasons".

The Office of the Prime Minister later said that Graham's sudden decision was caused by a problem of play that caused him to fall on serious personal debts.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Saturday that he had learned about Grewal's problem just over a week, but his office had no information that RCMP was linked to the matter.

Trudeau told a news conference in Buenos Aires that his office was aware that the Montes had examined Raj Grewal's relationship to India's prime minister's trip this year.

Grewal has invited construction work – who paid him for legal services – to official events with Trudeau during the trip.

The PMO realized that the RCMP asked questions related to the trip of India and that ethical research around Grewal said Trudeau.

"We did not have information at this point that there was some connection to a problem of play that we had no information about," he said.

"On Wednesday last week, I was aware of Mr. Grewal's problem … I understand that my office was aware of it in any day or so inform me."

On his Facebook account Friday, Grewal said he began to visit the La Lac Leamy Casino in Gatineau, Ke., At the beginning of 2016, reducing personal debt in the millions of dollars playing high attacks. He began to lend money from family and friends to continue playing.

"In an average seating, I would spend 15 to 30 minutes at a table, and I earned a lot of money that made me continue to pursue the wins, or I lost a lot of money that threw me in full despair," he said.

"I want to explain that every personal loan made to me was by checking. All were returned, and every loan and repayment is transparent and transferable."

The thing did not have anything related to "anything sinister" in addition to remainders, he added, as he apologized for his family to force him to expel and carry the burden with him.

Grewal said he would forget the freedom of fault to focus his mental health and decide on his political future before the Parliament resumed in the new year.

A source with events knowledge told the Canadian Press that the RCMP looked at Grewal's casino game based on reports on unusually large financial transactions.

Judge had hard words on Friday for Alberta's world famous ski encounter because she fined $ 2.1 million for timidly cutting into endangered trees.

Lake Skizo Resort resorted guilty to the last December to fall off a tree stand, including 38 endangered white boats, on a 2013 ski.

"It's a harsh effect on the white pine, with a potential risk to undermine the life of the species in the coming decades," said Judge Heather Lamoureux.

Lamoureux realized that the trees were cut into a national park, the resort failed to make sure its employees knew the white bark pine was in danger and the trees destroyed were all healthy.

"The Crown has shown an overwhelming doubt that Lake Louise Ski Area's actions and its employees have been reckless, because they knew the limits of the operation of a commercial ski-hill in a national park," she said. "The risk of damage was easily anticipated."

Lamoureux gave the city the year to pay as much as around a $ 55,000 tree.

Spokesman of Lake Louise said the resort would probably call the beautiful one who almost doubles what he was expecting.

Dan Markham said the judge seems to ignore evidence at the trial trial, which suggested that cutting the 38 trees, would have no effect on the general population of a white boat in Canada.

"It was clearly presented at the court and accepted the prosecution that no effect at any level of white pine was cut," said Markham, director of brand and communications at Lake Louise.

"This kind of information not included and considered in the trial is something we must consider, so at this moment we would make the decision."

He said steps were taken to make sure no other white bridge was cut. They include better employment education and mark the 7,000 white parks within the area.

Emile Claveau could not believe her eyes as he traveled to work in a busy freeway in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean de Quebec region.

As he approached a transport truck about 250 kilometers north of Quebec, he realized that a man stood on his back.

"He was sitting, a cross-leg, holding himself to a door," Claveau said Friday. "I was shocked and I tried to get the attention of the truck, but just too much traffic on the road, so finally I called a police".

Quebec Provincial Police received a call at 7:20 a.m. Wednesday talking to someone on the back of a tractor, Sgt. Marie-Josee Ouellet said.

When a patrol car caught the truck more than an hour later, the man climbed down and was in the shutdown car of another motor.

Field driver Dave Tremblay, who had definitely provided the man's elevation, told the 98.5 radio station this week the man rode about two feet of a truck.

He shows the unconventional hitchhiker who jumped at rest and was on the Quebec truck for more than 100 kilometers before a motorcycle managed to alert Tremblay on Highway 175 at the Laurentides Wildlife Reserve.

It does not know where the man wanted to go, but he clearly decided. Tremblay said snow was and the rider was completely dressed for the elements.

"He was congealed. He was like a little snowman," Tremblay said to the station. He wonders how long a man could stop if he did not stop when he did.

Police says a 38-year-old man of Soul, who. was treated for hypothermia and could face $ 1,000 fines and be hit with a dozen clearance points to hold on a moving vehicle.

Claveau has never seen something similar in Quebec.

"I thought it had no feeling," he said. "So I tried to stop the truck. That's not something you see every day."

Lawyers for a former Somerland man convicted of killing two elderly people asked for a new attempt.

Travis Vader was convicted in January 2017 to live in prison for killing in the deaths of Lyle and Marie McCann.

Defenses of the defense asked the Alberta Court of Appeal for a new trial on the grounds that there were many errors in the original.

They argue that the test lasted for a long time, so the sentences should have remained.

They also realize that the judge has incorrectly used an old section of the Criminal Code and subsequently replaced murder for the original verdict of second-grade killing.

The McCanns, who were in their late 70s, disappeared in 2010 after leaving their Edmonton region to go to camp in British Columbia.

The Court of Appeal reserves its decision.

Alberta's finance minister says that the broad gap in the price of Canadian oil claims not to be affected by this year's budget, but if left unloaded it will be a difficult time forward.

Joe Ceci released the province's second quarter update to this year's provincial budget.

The revised forecast predicts a further small fall in the projected deficit up to $ 7.5 billion when the fiscal year ends March 31.

This is mainly due to higher than expected personal income income and $ 1.3 billion more than expected in bitumen and crude oil.

But these numbers are predicted to discourage, because Canadian oil's discounted price creates a home impact on the Alberta economy.

Alberta's oil is much less compared to the market due to supply, growing inventories and a pipeline loop.

The province is now buying railways to get more oil to market.
