CANADA – Whistleblower fired from Quebec agricultural ministry for sharing confidential information with a news outlet

first_img Follow the news on Canada February 6, 2019 – Updated on February 7, 2019 CANADA – Whistleblower fired from Quebec agricultural ministry for sharing confidential information with a news outlet CanadaAmericas Protecting sources Whistleblowers Organisation News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is deeply concerned to learn a government whistleblower was fired last month from his position in the Quebec Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food for sharing confidential documents with a media outlet. November 19, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts While Quebec’s whistleblower legislation allows an individual to share information with their department, the police or their province’s anti-corruption commissioner, disclosing confidential information to the public is only protected if the employee believes not doing so could result in significant health, safety or environmental risks.“If whistleblowers continue to be punished as Louis Robert was, they will speak less and less to journalists and it’s the public that will pay the price,” said Stéphane Giroux, President of the Fédération professionnelle des journalistes du Québec (FPJQ), RSF’s local partner. FPJQ has called for a reform of the whistleblower legislation in order to make it easier to share information related to wrongdoing within government agencies. “We must impose democratic obligations on the leading digital players” The reporting had clear impact: in March after Radio-Canada broke the story, which outlined attempts by the private sector to intimidate researchers and otherwise interfere with research, several researchers resigned from their positions. Two other agronomists were suspended without pay for three and five days respectively for speaking to reporters—on the same subject as Robert—without authorization, which is a violation of the department’s media policy. Robert has not spoken to reporters since his dismissal, which he plans to appeal. Minister of Agriculture André Lamontagne told reporters on January 31 it had been his decision to fire Robert and that the bureaucrat’s disclosure of confidential information was not the sole reason he was dismissed, though he didn’t expand on this. Robert’s union was alarmed by Lamontagne’s remarks, saying a minister’s intervention in the dismissal of an employee so much lower in the bureaucratic hierarchy was unprecedented. Lamontagne rescinded his statement on February 4, saying he had misspoken days earlier and the firing was actually an administrative decision. Since then, Lamontagne has asked the Quebec ombudsman to investigate the dismissal in order to ensure it was properly dealt with in accordance to the law and that Robert’s rights were respected in the process. January 15, 2021 Find out more RSF_en center_img News Agronomist Louis Robert was fired on January 24 from his position in Quebec’s Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food for giving confidential documents to Radio-Canada regarding significant conflicts of interest, including private-sector interference in a public study of pesticide use. The influence on this research meant that the negative effect of insecticides on crop production and pollinators (like bees) was downplayed or hidden. Robert had tried to raise his concerns within the department last year, but when his superiors repeatedly turned a blind eye he chose to alert the media, providing the documents to support his claims. He had worked with the ministry for 32 years. On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia to go further News CanadaAmericas Protecting sources Whistleblowers News Canada ranks 18th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” “Louis Robert appears to have been fired for allowing the press to access information of public interest that his department repeatedly disregarded,” said Margaux Ewen, Director of RSF’s North America bureau. “RSF urges the ombudsman to carefully examine this case to ensure that Robert’s firing was not in retaliation for blowing the whistle. This case could have a chilling effect on other government employees who may consider speaking to journalists and, as a result, severely restrict the public’s right to know.” Help by sharing this information November 11, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

RSF decries government inaction in face of attacks on media

first_img Pakistani supreme court acquits main suspect in Daniel Pearl murder April 21, 2021 Find out more RSF_en PakistanAsia – Pacific News News In the latest attack, two individuals on a motorcycle threw a homemade bomb at the bureau of the TV news channel Express News in Sargodha, in the eastern province of Punjab, on 7 December, injuring a security guard and damaging one of its vehicles.Express News is regarded as a liberal news organization and has been the target of previous attacks that were claimed by the Taliban.The Sargodha attack came just six days after militants threw a grenade at the Din News channel’s bureau in the Punjabi capital of Lahore, injuring an employee and two policemen. They also scattered Islamic State leaflets threatening to continue attacking media outlets until they “revert to neutral journalism” and “side with truth that is Sharia and Islam.”The attackers fled on a motorcycle and since then no arrests have been made.An arson attack on Gawahi Television, a Christian Web TV station in the southern city of Karachi, on 24 November destroyed its studios and computer equipment. The station had been the target of threats, which were reported to the Karachi authorities. Surveillance cameras had been installed, but they were also destroyed by the fire.Three Dunya News employees were injured when militants on a motorcycle threw a grenade at the TV station’s bureau in the northeastern city of Faisalabad on the evening of 20 November. After the attackers fled, pamphlets of Islamic State’s Khorasan branch were found at the scene.“We deplore the lack of action by the authorities, who are displaying a complete absence of political will to protect the media,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk.“Extremist groups had threatened all of these media outlets. The local authorities should have taken energetic measures to protect their staff. It is time that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s government reacted and responded to the calls from media defence NGOs and Pakistani journalists’ unions.” RSF urges the Pakistani authorities to:- Allocate more material and human resources to monitoring and protecting news media staff – Organize the reinforcement of the security of media premises (guards, surveillance cameras, entrance barriers and so on)- Establish an effective alert system that allows the police to intervene quickly in the event of an attack.According to some Pakistani journalists, the extremist groups are stepping up their attacks on media outlets with the aim of getting them to resume covering the activities of these groups. After an attack on a Peshawar school in December 2014 that killed more than 100 children, the authorities banned the Pakistani media from covering the activities of militant and terrorist groups.Ranked 159th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, Pakistan is one of the pilot countries of the UN Plan of Action on the Safety of Journalists and the Issue of Impunity. News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the government’s failure to respond to a wave of attacks on media outlets throughout Pakistan in recent weeks and the absence of effective measures to protect news organizations and journalists.

They don’t have to register. However, we do ask that the children stick with one site and not go to one site one day and to another on another day.” Print Article Latest Stories Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Published 10:33 pm Thursday, June 18, 2009 Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Email the author Summer and sandwiches just naturally go together.And, sandwiches are the order of the day for the 2009 Summer Food Service Program in Troy.The city of Troy is, once again, sponsoring the Summer Food Service Program for children ages 1 to 18, and 742 children are being served.

The city of Troy is the sponsor and the program workers are employees of the city school system.The lunches are put together at Troy Elementary School by five kitchen workers with Joyce Curry as kitchen manager.Each sack lunch contains a cold meat sandwich — ham, turkey or bologna (all also with cheese) — and one piece of fruit, which right now is either an apple or an orange. When plums, nectarines and peaches are in season, they will be included in the sack lunches. A four-ounce fruit juice and an eight-ounce carton of chocolate milk are also included in the sack lunches.There is a site monitor at each of the 19 sites to keep a count of the number served and report it back to Thrasher and her staff so that arrangements can be made for the following day. By Jaine Treadwell Sponsored Content The Summer Food Service Program site at the Katherine Williams Center at 222 Montgomery Street has the fewest number of participants, and Thrasher said she would like to see those numbers increase.“We want parents who have children from ages one to 18 to know about the program that is available to them and encourage them to take advantage of it,” Thrasher said.Other sites of the Summer Food Service Program are Bethel Baptist Church, Church of God in Christ, Charles Henderson High School, Knox Street Center, Meeksville Fire Station, Murphree Park, Outreach Endtime Deliverance Church, Springhill Housing Projects, Washington Park, Christian Life Church, Mt.

She is pictured with her big check of six figures.While other shoppers were loading their shopping carts with fresh turnips, collards and black-eyed peas, Willie Pearl Crawley didn’t even look toward the greens.“I don’t cook greens,” she said. “I’ll eat them if somebody else cooks them. But I’m not going to fool with washing and cooking any greens.”Crawley shunned the idea that unless she ate greens and black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day she wouldn’t have money or good fortune during the year.

I didn’t need all that money. I don’t have any of it now and that’s all right with me. I liked winning it. That was fun. I put in 75 cents and hit the jackpot. A lot of people try to win big. I didn’t even try.”Crawley laughed at the thought of people trying to bring good luck and good fortune into their lives by eating greens and black-eyed peas cooked with hog jowl on New Year’s Day.Black-eyed peas are thought to bring good luck and greens – turnips, collards or mustard – will bring wealth.“Greens are a mess to cook and I’ve had good luck and I had wealth for a little while,” Crawley said.“I don’t need either one now so I’ll just eat peanut butter and jelly on New Year’s and that will be all right with me.” Latest Stories Skip Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson You Might Like Police chief: Suspect charged in armed robbery A Troy man was arrested last week in connection with a Dec. 22 armed robbery.

Authigenic smectite clay coats in CRP-3 drillcore, Victoria Land basin, Antarctica, as a possible indicator of fluid flow: a progress report

first_imgThe presence of authigenic smectite in the lower Oligocene sandstones of the Cape Roberts Project core CRP-3 from the Victoria Land Basin of Antarctica is confirmed by scanning electron, scanning-transmission electron, and lightmicroscopy. It was emplaced as a single generation of cement within the lower portion of the Oligocene section. This section has undergone no discernible compaction since cementation. Permeabilities measured on fifty core plugs show that the lower portion of the Oligocene (from 370-766 meters below sea floor) also has systematically higher values than sediment in uppermost CRP-3 and all ofCRP-2 and CRP-1. Three models for smectite authigenesis are considered as multiple working hypotheses to be tested: 1) Burial diagenesis with necessary components sourced from volcanogenic materials and heavy minerals within thedrilled sequence; 2) Precipitation from hydrothermal waters associated with possible igneous intrusion(s) andnearby faults; 3) Mobilization and injection of regionally compactive “thermobaric” fluids along a nearbyfault that bounds a major graben parallel to the Transantarctic Mountain Front. The preponderance of theavailable evidence and Occum’s Razor favors the first model, although special circumstances dictated by theposition of the drill site along a rapidly subsiding rift basin require that all three models be consideredequally until our analyses are complete.last_img read more
