Canada To Again Fund Clearing Of Cluster Bombs In Laos

They are the British-based Mines Advisory Groupand the country’s own homegrown clearance operator, UXO Lao. The $1 million will be administered through a United Nations Development Program trust fund. Officials urged Canada to restart funding The deputy director of UXO Lao had effusive praise for Canada’s past funding of the sector during an interview earlier this year, but was one of several officials urging Canada to restart funding. “Maybe there’s some other internal issue the Canadian people consider more important to resolve,” said Wanthong Khamdala. “But I’d like to request to the Canadian government to consider again to support.” Baird’s announcement will take place in the Cope Centre, which former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited in July 2012 on her historic visit to Laos. Clinton met Phongsavath Manithong, who lost both his hands and was blinded by a cluster bomb on his 16th birthday in February 2008. Phongsavath told The Canadian Press in a lengthy interview at the centre earlier this year that his country needs more financial help to assist victims of cluster bombs. “We need more help from the American government,” he said. “They are a rich country. That’s not enough to help the disabled people, the survivors.” Bill to ratify convention includes out clause for Canada Canada is a signatorybut has yet to ratify the international treaty that seeks to ban cluster bomb use. Canada faces heavy international criticism for the bill that it has tabled in Parliament that would ratify the Convention on Cluster Munitions, or CCM. It contains a provision that would allow the Canadian Forces to be involved in the use of cluster bombs in joint operations with the United States, which has opted out of the convention.

Ms Kulic appreciated Air Canada immediately notified her of the incident and said it was trying its best to locate the dog. The good PR image and seeming compassion for a missing being were supposed to have already covered it for the airline company, had it not for a badly sent email. CBC News which tried to send follow-up queries to Air Canada was surprised to have received an email reply that was apparently not intended for the news firm.

What’s more, she’s expecting the worst for Larry. “Oh my God,” she told CBS13 Sacramento. “I guess I wouldn’t expect anything different from a company that would allow something like this to happen.” Later in the day, CBS13 Sacramento received another email. “Air Canada acknowledges inappropriate comments were made to a reporter’s followup questions regarding Larry. Air Canada has been providing the best available information to media on this matter.

The game is the first of six meetings between the rivals prior to the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, in February. The results mean little, but the preparation is key for two teams likely to meet again at the gold-medal game in Sochi. Canada, the three-time defending Olympic champion, and the U.S. have met in three of four Olympic finals, and all 15 women’s world championships. The Americans defeated Canada 3-2 in Ottawa this year to reclaim the world title. Canada’s head coach Dan Church had that loss at the worlds in mind after the win Saturday. “I think we wanted to set the tone here for the series,” he said. “We also wanted to have a little redemption based on our last game. I think that’s the way it’s going to go for both teams as we move through this year. No one’s going to want to let the other one get up too many, so it was a good start for us.” The game ended in a brawl. A U.S.
