Tougher Penalties for Drug-Impaired Drivers Coming October 2

Posted on 28 September 2016 by TSL

 

news-release-tslSeptember 28, 2016

Province Making Ontario Roads Safer.
The province is improving the safety of Ontario roads by bringing in penalties for drug-impaired driving that match those already in place for drunk drivers. 
Starting October 2, 2016, drivers under the influence of drugs will face the following penalties:

A $180 penalty
An immediate licence suspension of three days for the first occurrence, seven days for the second occurrence and 30 days for the third and subsequent occurrences upon failure of a roadside sobriety test
A possible 90-day licence suspension and a seven-day vehicle impoundment following further testing by a drug recognition expert at a police station
Mandatory education or treatment programs, and installation of an ignition interlock device in their vehicle, for drivers with two or more licence suspensions involving alcohol or drugs within a 10-year period
These new measures were introduced as part of the Making Ontario's Roads Safer Act last year. In addition to these penalties, impaired driving can lead to criminal charges which could ultimately result in a loss of licence, additional fines and jail time. 

Keeping our roads safe is part of the government's economic plan to build Ontario up and deliver on its number-one priority to grow the economy and create jobs. The four-part plan includes helping more people get and create the jobs of the future by expanding access to high-quality college and university education. The plan is making the largest infrastructure investment in hospitals, schools, roads, bridges and transit in Ontario's history and is investing in a low-carbon economy driven by innovative, high-growth, export-oriented businesses. The plan is also helping working Ontarians achieve a more secure retirement.
 
  
QUICK FACTS 
According to the Office of the Chief Coroner, 39 per cent of drivers killed on Ontario’s roads in 2013 had either drugs or a combination of drugs and alcohol in their system. 
Drug-impaired driving collisions in Ontario had an estimated social cost of $612 million in 2013. 
The Making Ontario's Roads Safer Act was passed on June 2, 2015. It also included tougher penalties for distracted driving and “dooring” cyclists, as well as new rules for school crossings and pedestrian crossovers.

Sri Lanka’s JKH launches 2nd luxury apartment block

Posted on 28 September 2016 by TSL

 

  

ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka’s John Keells Holdings group said it plans to build a second high-rise luxury apartment block after the success of the first one, half of whose floor space has already been sold. 

Pre-bookings for ‘The Suites at Cinnamon Life’, the second residential tower to be built as part of a 4.5 million square foot integrated resort by JKH unit Waterfront Properties (Private) Limited, have exceeded 15%, a statement said. 

The 196 apartments in the second residential tower, which will rise 39 stories to a height of 136 meters, are priced at US$400,000 upwards. 

Construction of the US$850 million integrated resort project is by a consortium of contractors headed by Hyundai Engineering and Construction. 

It includes an 800-room luxury Cinnamon hotel, a shopping and entertainment mall, office spaces, food and beverage outlets, ballroom, and conferencing, theatre and banqueting spaces with capacity for 5,000 people designed to cater to MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Events) tourism.

Suresh Rajendra, President, Property Sector of JKH, said the project is scheduled for completion in the latter part of 2019 and will be operational in early 2020.

Roshani Moraes, Executive Vice President, Property Sector of JKH, said over 50% of the floor space of the first residential tower ‘The Residence at Cinnamon Life’ has already been sold.

“Given our success with the first tower, we decided on the second tower,” she told a news conference. 

“It’s almost like an investment tower. The two-bed roomed apartments will have the greatest demand for rental purposes. Apartments in our older properties have outperformed the market in rental returns and capital appreciation.” 
.
Other properties of JKH’s property arm include the Monarch and Emperor at Crescat City; Onthree20; and its latest completed project, 7th Sense – Gregory’s Road.

Moraes said a 30-storey office tower is also planned which could be an investment instrument.

“We are offering investment opportunities in the commercial space, which thus far have been available only on a rental basis with the exception of one or two floors in other developments,” she said.

Krishan Balendra, President of JKH’s Leisure Sector, said the integrated facility will have the largest banqueting and conferencing facility in Colombo with the group targeting the MICE market.

“We running two five-start hotels – Cinnamon Grand and Cinnamon Lakeside and we know we don’t have conferencing and entertainment facilities for regional conferences or even very big weddings, for instance from India.”
(COLOMBO, Sept 27, 2016)

The Honourable Stéphane Dion, Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of International Trade, the Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie, and the Honourable John McCallum, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, today announced they would welcome United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) representatives His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, and His Excellency Sultan bin Saeed Al Mansouri, Minister of Economy, in Ottawa on September 27 and 28, 2016.

On September 27, ministers Dion, Bibeau and McCallum will have individual meetings with His Highness Sheikh Abdullah.

The growing popularity of Canada as a destination for U.A.E. students, business travellers and visitors will be the main focus of Minister McCallum’s meeting, along with the United Arab Emirates’ recent commitment to take in Syrian refugees. Minister Dion will then highlight the importance of bilateral security cooperation, including participation in the Global Coalition against Daesh. Increased ‎consular collaboration will also be on the agenda, given the approximately 40,000 Canadians living and working in the United Arab Emirates.

On September 28, Minister Freeland and His Excellency Sultan Al Mansouri will hold the inaugural meeting of the Canada-United Arab Emirates Joint Economic Committee in Ottawa to strengthen bilateral ties and promote economic relations between the two countries with an emphasis on small and medium-sized businesses.

These meetings will help reaffirm the strong relationship between Canada and the United Arab Emirates, setting ambitious targets for the two countries to partner on and work toward, such as in the areas of trade and investment, development and regional security.
