Drug-dealer who hid drugs in kitchen vent is jailed for nine months

first_imgA Carrigart drug-dealer who hid a stash of cocaine and cannabis in a vent in his kitchen has been jailed for nine months.Robert Deehan appeared at Letterkenny District Court after Gardai raided his home at Church Road on November 2nd last. After searching the house they found cocaine and cannabis worth €500 as well as €2,400 in cash in a vent.Deehan’s solicitor. Mr Michael Shiel, said his client had a drugs problem but was not a big-time dealer.He was trying to pay off a drug debt and was supplying drugs to some of his friends to come up with the cash.Judge Paul Kelly noted that Deehan, a father-of-two, had undergone a previous Probation Report in September 2017 for drugs offences and he was said to be at moderate risk of reoffending.He was also ordered to undergo counselling but this would not have appeared to have taken place.Solicitor Shiel said his client had tried to get counselling but wasn’t called for it but would try again.Judge Kelly said he would have some sympathy for Deehan but the discovery of such a large amount of cash suggested a larger scale operation than was being suggested.He jailed Deehan for 12 months but reduced it to nine months because of the early plea in the case.Drug-dealer who hid drugs in kitchen vent is jailed for nine months was last modified: April 1st, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CarrigartcourtdrugsGardailast_img read more

New report calls for ways to retain more immigrants in Atlantic Canada

first_imgFREDERICTON – A new report says if Atlantic Canada wants to solve its economic and demographic problems, it must become more than a stopover for immigrants.The report entitled “The People Imperative” will be released Wednesday at a one-day summit on immigration and revitalization, being held in Fredericton.The report is prepared by the Public Policy Forum, an Ottawa-based think tank with ties to business and government.It says increasing immigration won’t work for Atlantic Canada unless people choose to stay. Right now the region has the lowest immigration retention rates in the country.Nova Scotia has a five-year immigrant retention rate between 2011-2015 of 72 per cent, while Newfoundland and Labrador is at 56 per cent, New Brunswick is at 52 per cent, and P.E.I. is at just 18 per cent.No province outside Atlantic Canada has a retention rate below 80 per cent.Atlantic Canada needs to boost immigration and retention if it is to combat the demographic challenge of an aging population.Frank McKenna, deputy chair of TD Bank group, former premier and Canadian ambassador to the United States, said it’s a challenge when you see population numbers dropping in parts of the region.“We have a time bomb going off in that our population is not just declining, but it’s aging as well. On average our population is eight years older than that of Alberta. And that means that we face higher health care costs per capita,” he said.McKenna said more must be done to attract and retain immigrants, and that includes providing more services such as language training, and getting more employers involved.He’s quick to concede the difficulty when immigrants are being attracted to larger centres like Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver that have a larger critical mass.“Not surprisingly they want to be with their fellow citizens in terms of the food they eat, the God they worship, the culture they respect, and we don’t have a lot of those tracks laid down,” he said.Nearly two-thirds of all immigrants to Canada in 2013-2017 arrived in one of the three largest centres, while the Atlantic region received 4.6 per cent of immigrants.“The literature is clear on why immigrants leave Atlantic Canada: they seek better job opportunities and higher compensation, better educational opportunities for themselves and their children, better social services and cultural amenities, and ties to ethnic community and extended family,” the report reads.Still, McKenna said the federally sponsored Atlantic Immigration Pilot program is working, but may need more resources.The Atlantic region is also losing many of its young people who are moving in search of better jobs and better pay.The report says despite that, the region has a lot of positive aspects that need to be promoted, including quality of life.“Immigrants note that the manageable pace of life, with safe communities and good service, makes Atlantic communities attractive for raising families, and the proximity to nature is a large lifestyle draw. These attractions are difficult to quantity, but they are important components of branding Atlantic Canada as a desirable destination,” the report said.The report said retaining more international students for the region would be a huge win, and governments should proactively recruit established entrepreneurs to Atlantic Canada.The summit kicks off a three-year research project on Atlantic revitalization with a special focus on immigrant retention.However McKenna said the situation may be more time critical than that, noting that he sounded the alarm on demographic change and the aging population in 1995.last_img read more

Well completion companies report sharp slowdown in fourth quarter activity

first_imgCALGARY, A.B. – Companies whose services are needed for hydraulic fracturing or “fracking” of oil and gas wells are reporting tough times thanks to a slowdown in drilling in Western Canada in the fourth quarter.Shares in both Trican Well Service Ltd. and Source Energy Services Ltd. trended lower Thursday after the Calgary-based companies reported lower sales in the last three months of 2018.Fracking involves injecting water, sand and chemicals under high pressure to crack tight rock formations deep underground and allow trapped oil and gas to flow into the well to be produced. Trican, whose crews step in after a well is drilled to make it ready for production, reported a fourth-quarter net loss from continuing operations of $159 million (including a $134-million goodwill impairment charge), compared with a net profit of $14 million a year earlier.It says revenue dropped by 40 per cent to $168 million from $280 million in the same period of 2017 as its total job count fell by 30 per cent to 2,054 from 2,909.Source Energy, which supplies the specialized sand used in fracking, reported in an operational update that sales fell by 33 per cent to 373,000 tonnes in the fourth quarter from 557,000 tonnes in the same quarter in 2017.The Petroleum Services Association of Canada said last month it expects 5,600 wells to be drilled in the country this year, down from 6,948 in 2018, due to what it calls deteriorating investor confidence in Canada.last_img read more

Bodies of Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky found near Gillam

first_imgGILLAM, M.B. – The bodies of Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky have been found near Gillam Manitoba.At a press conference on Wednesday, the RCMP made the announcement that their bodies were found near Gillam.At 10 a.m. on August 7, the two bodies were found 1 km from where items were found on the Nelson River and the RCMP are confident the two bodies are Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky. Specialized RCMP teams begin searching nearby high-probability areas, leading officers to the discovery of the two male bodies, in the dense brush.The RCMP have not determined exactly how Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky died.  The RCMP have asked for an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.The search is over.  At 10am this morning, Manitoba RCMP officers located the bodies of two males, believed to be the BC suspects, near the shoreline of the Nelson River (approx 8km from the burnt vehicle). #rcmpmb pic.twitter.com/tZ7EBFsNDr— RCMP Manitoba (@rcmpmb) August 7, 2019Full RCMP statementMore on the searchOn August 2, 2019, RCMP located several items on the shoreline, approximately 9 km from where the burnt vehicle was located. RCMP have confirmed that these items are directly linked to the suspects. That same day, a damaged boat was also found along the Nelson River.Based on this information, the RCMP Underwater Recovery Team (URT) were immediately deployed. On August 4, 2019, URT conducted a thorough underwater search approximately 29 metres around the location where the boat was found. The search did not uncover any additional items linked to the suspects. The roadblock on PR 290 has been removed, but officers remain in the Gillam area.  To ensure the integrity of the investigation, the RCMP will not be releasing any further information about the items.Last week the RCMP announced they would scale back the search for Schmegelsky and McLeod in Northern Manitoba.  In the next Province, the OPP have been investigating several tips that the pair is now in that Province. So far the OPP have not been able to confirm the tips.Police continue to stress, that if you believe you’ve seen Kam McLeod and Bryer Schemelsky, contact your local police department immediately or 911.  Sightings have been posted to social media before being shared with the RCMP, that has caused delays in the investigation.The last confirmed sighting of the pair was on July 22 in Gillam Manitoba.  The pair are wanted in connection with three homicides in Northern B.C. that all occurred during the week of July 15, 2019.last_img read more

I try to control the controllables says Bumrah Krunal Pandya calls him

first_imgBengaluru: Called a legend by his Mumbai Indians teammate Krunal Pandya, India pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah says he backs himself to deliver no matter what the situation is and always focusses on his strengths. Bumrah’s 3/20 in four overs against Royal Challengers Bangalore was crucial to Mumbai Indians’ six-run triumph in an IPL clash. “You go ball by ball and you try to control the controllables. You try to back yourself in the situation,” the man of the match winner said in the presentation ceremony.

I always try to back myself in any situation and execute the plan to perfection. I have always taken care of my body,” added the pacer, who had hurt his shoulder in the previous match but got fit just in time for this game. All-rounder Krunal Pandya was gushing in his praise for the bowler, who is ranked No.1 in the ICC world rankings. “It was a great game. We were in-out throughout the second innings. The way Bumrah bowled, he is a legend. The way he’s giving consistent performances whether he is playing for India or Mumbai Indians; he is outstanding,” he said. Pandya also lauded his brother, Hardik Pandya for the 14-ball unbeaten 32 on Thursday. “Whatever I have seen of Hardik this year, he’s striking the ball very well. For me, it was excepted, what he did,” he said. “He’s in a good mind space. I’m pretty sure he’ll be delivering for MI consistently. It’s important to get a win in the second game only, sets the momentum for the team,” he said.last_img read more
