Beverly AndrewsAPTN NewsAnishinabe soldier Francis Pagahmagabow who fought in the First World War may not be a well-known name in Canada – but he’s celebrated in Europe. Pagahmagabow was one of the soldiers honoured at a ceremony in Belgium at the beginning in November for his service during the war.It happened on the anniversary of Battle of Passchendaele.About a hundred people wrapped in warm coats, and scarves stand with their hands in their pockets while speeches are read from the podium – and a wreath laid at the cenotaph.This isn’t the first time Julia Pegahmagabow has honoured her great-grandfather, Staff Sgt. Francis Pegahmagabow – but it’s her first time in Belgium visiting one of the places where he served.“It was indeed a great sacrifice,” she told APTN News. “Just as with the rest of the Canadian soldiers who came here and lost their lives here.”(The headdress belonging to Pegahmagabow on display at the National War Museum. Photo: Annette Francis/APTN)2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Passchendaele.It was one of the deadliest for Canada – 4,000 dead, and another 12,000 wounded.Francis Pegahmagabow from the Wasauksing First Nation fought in many battles as a deadly sniper.Pegahmagabow enlisted just days after Britain declared war on Germany.“He left Canada as a person who really probably thought of himself as a treaty person, who came as an ally and not as a subject,” she said.“Who was honouring his commitment to Treaty by joining the commonwealth an enlisting for this war.”Initially, the Canadian government discouraged Indigenous peoples from enlisting.But that didn’t stop Francis Pegahmagabow.He ended up being known as the deadliest sniper of World War One – credited with 378 kills, and capturing 300 more.And his skills helped him carry messages along the frontlines.“We may have been a small portion, 4000 people, 4000 men enlisting from indigenous communities but the contribution was great,” said his great-granddaughter.(Medals belonging to Pegahmagabow on display at the National War Museum. (Photo: Annette Francis/APTN)Francis was awarded the Military Medal – one of many he would take home from the war in Europe.First Bar at the Battle of Passchendaele.The second at the Battle of the Scarpe where he braved enemy fire to collect ammunition in No Man’s Land.But despite the bravery, her great-grandfather showed on the battlefield fighting alongside Canadian and British soldiers, nothing changed when he returned home.In Canada, he was again under the control of the Indian agent – but he started a news fight – one for the freedom of Indigenous people.“He was certainly in the war a sniper and scout,” said his great-grandson Brian McInnes. “But Francis was also a father, a good community member, former Wasauksing councilor, chief and also national chief, of the time, the national Indian government.McInnes said having been an equal in the trenches, risking his life and sustaining injuries, his great-grandfather found it unacceptable to be under the control of an Indian agent.As well as living with other Canadian policies meant to limit Indigenous rights and freedoms.“And that’s was what really Francis referred to after the war as his greatest war,” said McInnes. “To ensure the legacy of his people forever into the future.”Francis Pegahmagabow wanted to unite and strengthen the rights of Indigenous people of Anishinabe of Wasauksing, and eventually the entire country.To have Treaties honoured, and to be recognized as equals.“I think the biggest accomplishment was that he came home,” said Julia Pegahmagabow. “He got to come home and we’re here because he was able to come home.”After speeches are given, there is a moment of silence.Then the band plays one last song to honour the fallen.Julia Pegahmagabow hopes the legacy and heroism of her great-grandfather and all Indigenous soldiers is taught more in schools so their service is never forgotten.
Mohammed Idriss says the small city of Brooks in southern Alberta will get more isolated when Greyhound bus service ends across Western Canada in the fall.Greyhound has announced it will end all its routes in the West, save for one between Vancouver and Seattle, at the end of October.Brooks, with a population of about 14,450 is on the Trans-Canada Highway, but it’s 190 kilometres to Calgary toward the west and 110 kilometres to Medicine Hat in the east.“We already feel cut off to a degree because of the availability of some services in the big city only,” said Idriss, manager of Brooks and County Immigration Services.A large population of newcomers to Canada work in Brooks, about 90 per cent of them at a beef-processing facility owned by JBS Canada.Idriss estimates about 1,000 people moved to the community to work and many find getting out of town difficult.“There are people who have vehicles, but are not that comfortable going into a big city with their own vehicle, and they would just prefer taking public transportation,” he said.“I can’t give a good estimate of how big the impact will be, but we’re going to hear more once people start realizing there is no service any more.”Brooks Mayor Barry Morishita is disappointed with Greyhound’s decision.“I was on a Greyhound last night coming back from Calgary. It’s funny I was on one the day the news came out.“It’s going to have an impact on a number of people.”The loss of Greyhound is also a concern to Canada’s largest reserve. The sprawling Blood Indian Reserve in southwestern Alberta is home to 12,500 residents.Band spokesman Rick Tailfeathers said service has been going downhill since Greyhound stopped service to Fort Macleod, just 30 kilometres away.He said only about half of the band’s members own cars.“The good thing about (Greyhound) was people could afford a bus ticket,” he said. “Now people are going to have to find another way to travel.”In the north, bus service is relied on by many Indigenous people who travel to bigger cities for medical care.“It is already well documented that our citizens have to ride the bus for hours, some longer than 14 hours, in order to see a doctor. How will they get access to adequate health care now?” said Grand Chief Arlen Dumas of the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs.There were previous Greyhound cuts, such as in 2012, when the bus company stopped operating on a number of roads including Highway 2 in Manitoba.Rick Chrest, the mayor of Brandon, Man., said it’s a blow for people who don’t own vehicles because there is no rail service in many areas and access to passenger airlines is limited.Chrest is hopeful smaller private operators will step in, but that didn’t happen after the 2012 cuts.“This will take away yet another option for public transportation that certainly many people rely on,” Chrest said.“We might be hopeful that some other aspect of the private sector may start stepping up and filling the void.”Chrest pointed to a private firm that offers a shuttle bus that carries Brandon residents two hours east to the airport in Winnipeg. Brandon has an airport, but the only major scheduled service is a daily WestJet run to Calgary.Bus charter companies, which transport sports teams, might also find a niche in regular scheduled service, he suggested.Ontario-based Kasper Transportation, which provides service to Northwest Ontario and Manitoba, announced expansion plans Tuesday.In a Facebook post, it said it will be offering service from Winnipeg to Thunder Bay, Ont., Thompson, Man., Regina, Saskatoon and Prince Albert, Sask., starting Oct. 31 — the day Greyhound shuts down its western operation.Greyhound currently services small communities across the sparsely populated Prairies. There are 46 stops alone during the 19-hour run from Winnipeg to Calgary — places such as MacGregor, Man., Sintaluta, Sask. and Bassano, Alta.— Follow @BillGraveland and @stevelambertwpg on TwitterNote to readers: This is a corrected story.

Jashon Cornell is moving to defensive tackle. Junior Chase Young and senior Jonathon Cooper return as clear starters at defensive end. But the Buckeyes need depth to keep those two fresh.If Saturday’s Spring Game is any indication, sophomore Tyreke Smith is emerging as option No. 3.Smith led all defenders with 1.5 sacks, finishing with 3.5 total tackles in the game. Overall, the Ohio native appeared more confident, growing into his new role as a leader in the room.“Last year I was getting out there like ‘Oh, I don’t know what they’re gonna run,” Smith said. “I feel more comfortable out there, I feel like I can play faster, get off the ball faster.”Coming in as a four-star prospect, Smith went through the typical first-year learning curve with just nine tackles and zero sacks in 2018.Moving forward, he knows there’s plenty of strides to make before he finds a larger role next season.“Trying to hone my technique and just help the unit,” Smith said. “Get some more game-type reps for my guys, go out there and try to get some stops, get a look on how the defense is gonna be.”Head coach Ryan Day recognizes the importance of a strong third defensive end, particularly in the defense Ohio State will run. The Buckeyes have a history of rotating defensive linemen, a philosophy co-defensive coordinator Greg Mattison has said he intends to stick with this season.That’s why he’s stressed the importance of Smith’s development to the Buckeyes’ veteran defensive linemen. Young in particular said Day told him to take Smith “under his wing.”“Every chance I get to text Tyreke, or talk to him, try to get some things to work on with him, I’m gonna do it,” Young said. “I want him to be the best player he can be.”Defensive line coach Larry Johnson is also playing a critical role in Smith’s development.Johnson holds a track record of developing defensive fronts, producing six NFL draft picks since arriving at Ohio State in 2014. He’s motivating Smith to continue improving. “I gotta keep pushing, I can’t stop here,” Smith said. “Coach J tells me every day I’ve gotta keep working, just gotta keep going hard, keep going hard, keep using my technique.”As a whole, Ohio State’s defensive line is working on the mental aspects of football as much as they are the physical this spring. Diagnosing a play and knowing opponent tendencies helps a player gain that extra edge: When you know what’s coming, it’s easier to defend.“Athletic ability is a lot, but the mental part is a lot of it too,” Smith said. “When you can see a play before it happens, you can see the back on one side, you know it’s gonna be a stretch, that just helps you play faster.”Young sees Smith as a cog in Ohio State’s defensive line machine this season, one that he hopes will be well-oiled come fall.“The whole summer we gonna be working, we gonna be grinding,” Young said. “I’ve definitely got a confidence in my D-line.”
Unai Emery has revealed that he would be open to a return to his former club Real Sociedad in the futureThe Spaniard’s future at Paris Saint-Germain appears to be increasingly uncertain with the Ligue 1 champions believed to be frustrated with his failure to deliver the Champions League to the French capital this season.Prior to becoming a coach, Emery played at Sociedad in the early stages of his playing career for six years and has been named as a possible candidate to succeed the fired Eusebio Sacristan.“I have always liked La Real, whether that is right now or in the future,” said the 46 year-old, according to Football-Espana.La Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…“Real Sociedad have always had an important place in my heart; it is where I spent ten years and it is where I grew up.“I do not know if one day I will return to the club in a professional capacity but it is my intention to do so at some point in the future.“Right now at PSG we are growing from patience and through solidity, we have the ambition of getting stronger every year and translating our success in France to Europe.”Before joining PSG last summer, Emery had enjoyed a successful coaching spell in La Liga with the likes of Almeria, Valencia, Sevilla.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#UnitedStates, January 12, 2018 – Washington, DC – Newly touted Green Card reforms are billed as having the power to bolster the competitive edge of the United States of America and restore trust between its People and Government. President Donald Trump, flanked by Senator Tom Cotton and Senator David Perdue on Thursday at White House unveiled a proposal for sweeping and significant changes to the country’s Immigration Policy, said to be the first such changes in half a century.“The RAISE Act will reduce poverty, increase wages and save tax payers billion and billions of dollars. It will do this by changing the way the United States issues Green Cards to nationals from other countries. Green Cards provide permanent residency, work authorizations and fast track to citizenship,” said President Trump as he explained the reason for this dramatic switch.“For decades the United States was operating and has operated a very low skilled immigration system, issuing record numbers of Green Cards to low-wage immigrants. This policy has placed substantial pressure on American workers, tax payers and community resources, among those hit the hardest in recent years have been immigrants, and very importantly, minority workers competing for jobs against brand new arrivals and it has not been fair to our people, to our citizens, to our workers,” he said.While there are already naysayers weighing in on the impact of this more stringent and selective policy proposal, Mr. Trump said the change is a demonstration of compassion for American citizens which puts the working family’s needs first. The President is also confident that the legislative proposal will result in migrant workers who are more successful in the United States.“The RAISE Act ends chain migration and replaces our low skill system with a new point-based system for receiving a Green Card, this competitive application process will favor applicants who speak English, can financially support themselves and their families and demonstrate skills that will contribute to our economy. The RAISE ACT prevents immigrants and new migrants from collecting welfare and protects US workers from being displaced.”It is a measure which president Trump explained was mandated by the American voters. However, more than Americans are sounding off on the legislative proposal. Magnetic Media in testing the temperature of Caribbean region residents on the subject found that people support the message and some are weary of the messenger.“I have been watching him (Trump) for a while and watching his actions and my thing is he has an issue with brown and black people. I feel honestly that he is actually racist…he has problems with the Hispanics, he has problems with the Muslim countries and so I figure that (proposed new RAISE Act) is to target the brown and black people. But I agree that even we, in The Bahamas are losing our sovereignty to the foreigners and our government has to get tough and that has to stop.”The man speaking to us via WhatsApp is resident in the Bahamas’ second city, Grand Bahama and adds that he objects to the other comments reported to have come from the mouth of President Donald Trump related to Haiti and a few other nations.While those reported demeaning comments from Trump are grabbing some headlines and sparking vigorous debate, it seems the reports on the remarks are more designed to steal the spotlight of the new policy proposed and drafted by Senators Cotton and Purdue; still many in the region are paying attention and hoping their own country will follow suit.“If the Premier of the Turks and Caicos was more hard-nosed about immigration, this place would be better off because there are too many people who are here on work permits and a lot of them need to go. There are too many Filipinos here, too many Jamaicans, too many Haitians here and a lot of them are preventing locals from being able to find a job. Turks and Caicos really gatta take a hard-nosed approach to Immigration.”In the second half of 2017, both The Bahamas and Turks and Caicos announced controversial measures to stem the flow of illegal and legal migration, including a freeze on new work permit applications and traveler visas to the TCI and in The Bahamas a December 31, 2017 deadline for illegal migrants to leave the country or face deportation.A former resident of the region and UK citizen explained, “Its got to be the way forward. You can’t have open boarders to be world. Just nuts,” he said, “The other week I spoke to a Haitian guy in Provo and he has – wait for it – nine children from five different women. No wife as yet, he told me he hasn’t found the right one. I told him to go and have it (penis) chopped off!”The man commenting to Magnetic Media says the United Kingdom is also favoring a point system for immigrants post Brexit.In 2014, a report by the Migration Policy Institute in the United States revealed that there were four million Caribbean immigrants in the United States, which was nine per cent of the 42.2 million immigrants in the country. Leading the top five were Cuba, at number one; Dominican Republic was second; Jamaica was third; next was Haiti and Trinidad and Tobago rounded out the top five. The Bahamas was eighth on that 2014 list, with Turks and Caicos having no distinct spot on the chart.#MagneticMediaNews#USGreenCardpolicychange Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Photo credit: Wikipedia & VOA news Related Items:
