WatchTim Hortons franchisees push back against company claims over denial of licence

TORONTO — A Tim Hortons franchisee who is being denied a licence renewal after the company accused him of violating food safety and operating-standards has passed most of such reviews, internal documents obtained by The Canadian Press indicate.The documents show Mark Kuziora, who has been critical of Tim Hortons’ operating practices and was involved in a class-action lawsuit against its parent company, failed only one review over three years to March 2018 and passed others with scores of between 70 and 95 per cent.The Great White North Franchisee Association, which claims to represent at least half of Tim Hortons franchisees, said in a letter to the company defending Kuziora that the failures were caused by a change in requirements around the approval and purchase of small wares that they say was faced by “many other Tim Hortons store owners across the country.”GWNFA has been fighting Tim Hortons on behalf of Kuziora since April, when the association said Kuziora was told he wouldn’t have the opportunity to renew his licence for one of the two Toronto locations he owns, when the licence expires on Aug. 31.At the time, Tim Hortons did not offer a reason for the denial, but its president of Canadian operations, Sami Siddiqui, told the Globe and Mail that among other issues, Kuziora’s restaurant has “a documented history of problems … including food-safety violations and not meeting a number of other Tim Hortons operating standards.”Siddiqui stood by his comments in an emailed statement Monday.“Any decision to not approve a new restaurant agreement can sometimes result in strong emotions,” Siddiqui said. “It is not something that we take lightly and is not something we usually address publicly. We firmly stand by our previous statements publicly and to Mr. Kuziora on this matter.”Kuziora has had a strained relationship with Tim Hortons, in part because he was involved in a class-action lawsuit last year that alleged RBI used money from a national advertising fund improperly.The lawsuit accused RBI of funnelling nearly $700 million to be used for advertising, marketing and sales promotions to itself and TDL Group, a Tim Hortons subsidiary. At the time, RBI said it “vehemently” disagreed with and denied all the allegations.GWNFA said Kuziora had been renegotiating with RBI for months, trusting that the negotiations were being done “in good faith,” so when he was contacted in April and told the company would be in touch to discuss the transfer of the restaurant to a new owner, it was “out of the blue.”“We have to wonder if not renewing his licence has anything to do with his being a member of the board of GWNFA and having his name on the ad fund lawsuit,” GWNFA said in a previous news release. “As far as we are concerned, this is nothing more than intimidation tactic.”At the time, Tim Hortons told The Canadian Press that Kuziora didn’t have any renewal rights through his licence agreement for the restaurant and said, “we regularly onboard new restaurant owners and transition restaurants as part of our normal course of business activity.”The statements and Kuziora’s licence denial riled up GWNFA, which has been sparring with the company over everything from cost-cutting measures to delays in supply deliveries to a $700-million renovation plan that they say will cost store owners $450,000 per restaurant.In the wake of the unrest, the company’s brand reputation rankings have plummeted and RBI president Alex Macedo has started doing damage control, criss-crossing the country to meet with thousands of franchisees in a bid to regain their trust. read more

Vulnerability of indebted households to hit historic levels as rates rise PBO

OTTAWA – The expected, gradual rise of interest rates over the next few years is poised to push the financial vulnerability of indebted Canadian households well above levels seen over the last three decades, warns a new analysis.A report released Tuesday by the parliamentary budget officer predicted households that have been amassing debt will be left exposed to economic shocks at “levels beyond historical experience” when Canada’s low-rate era finally winds down.The study comes amid concerns that rising debt — largely fuelled by surging housing prices — has already made households increasingly vulnerable to events like job losses triggered by a severe recession or a higher-than-expected jump in interest rates.The rising rates threaten to make it harder for Canadians to pay down their debt because they will no longer enjoy an offset from the rock-bottom borrowing costs, the PBO said.The country’s debt service ratio — the household debt payments relative to disposable income — has already climbed above the historical average seen between 1990 and 2017, said Mostafa Askari, the assistant parliamentary budget officer.“That by itself has to be considered alarming because obviously it means that the households will be more vulnerable over time to any kind of shock to the economic system,” Askari said.Askari said the ratio will continue its ascent when rates start rising. Some analysts predict the first hike to come as early as this year.“We project that household debt-servicing capacity will be stretched even further over the medium term as interest rates return to more normal levels,” the report said.As the economy strengthens, the Bank of Canada has been signalling that it’s moving closer to hiking its benchmark interest rate. Its trendsetting rate has been locked at 0.5 per cent since 2015 and hasn’t seen an increase in seven years.The PBO is projecting the central bank’s rate to rise to three per cent by mid-2020.It predicts the household debt service ratio to reach 16.3 per cent in 2021, which would be nearly 3.5 percentage points higher than the 12.9 per cent average seen between 1990 and 2017.The debt service ratio has crept upwards over the last two years to hit 14.2 per cent early this year, the report said.“Based on PBO’s projection, the financial vulnerability of the average household would rise to levels beyond historical experience,” it said.“Households that are required to devote a substantial portion of their disposable income to service their debts are vulnerable to adverse income and interest-rate shocks, and are more likely to be delinquent in their debt payments.”Follow @AndyBlatchford on Twitter. by Andy Blatchford, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 20, 2017 9:46 am MDT Last Updated Jun 20, 2017 at 1:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Vulnerability of indebted households to hit ‘historic’ levels as rates rise: PBO read more

More than 5000 children have been stripsearched figures reveal

first_imgMore than 5,000 children have been strip-searched by police in two years, figures revealed, as South Wales Police paid compensation to an innocent 12-year-old who was searched without escort.According to figures released by 13 police forces in England and Wales, requested by the BBC’s 5 live investigates, the searches were carried out in London by the UK’s largest force, the Metropolitan Police.The searches – which are normally carried out to detect drugs or concealed weapons – totalled 113,000.Only 13 out of  45 police forces responded with information and these included Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, City of London, Cambridgeshire, North Wales, Bedfordshire, Nottinghamshire, Cumbria, Essex, Cleveland, Hertfordshire and Lancashire.’Horrible and demeaning’Not all searches were carried out without controversy, and in the case of Georgia Wood, who was 12 when she was strip-searched, she felt the experience was “horrible and demeaning”.She was taken into police custody in South Wales eight years ago by officials who suspected her mother of possessing drugs.She told BBC Radio: “They didn’t explain to me until we got to the police station. And they literally just said ‘this is what’s going to happen and we’re going to do it’.”For someone to just be so horrible and demeaning, I just thought ‘well, if I’m meant to respect my elders, aren’t my elders meant to respect me’?”She added: “And I really didn’t feel respected in that situation.”No drugs were found on Georgia, who is now 20 years old, or her mother Karen Archer.Ms Archer was never charged with an offence.Police in South Wales recognised they had carried out a strip-search by mistake and without an appropriate adult present.Two officers received management action and both mother and daughter have since been awarded compensation for their ordeal.’Very troubling’Yvette Cooper, Labour MP and chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee, described the figures as “very troubling”.She added: “I think this is quite concerning because we know so little about why so many strip-searches are taking place.”It’s really distressing for people and I think the thing about a strip-search is, it is so intrusive, especially if you’re talking about children or teenagers.”That’s why this should never be done lightly and the police need to understand the impact this can have on individuals and why it has to be justified.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Advanced Greek classes are go

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The introduction of new advanced classes for children of newly arrived migrants from Greece will begin in early February – in time for the new school year. The initiative – organised by the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria (GOCMV) – has sparked an interest from local parents whose children have a strong command of the Greek language and who aren’t being challenged by the current curriculum.“Your typical after hours Greek School student is now third generation – English is their first language, English is spoken by their parents – and in many cases even grandparents – interaction and exposure with Greek language reinforcing activities varies greatly so there’s a massive gap in language fluency and this chasm will only get greater,” said Dr Nick Dallas, GOCMV board and education committee member.“Greek Australian parents who have been proactive in maintaining their children’s language fluency naturally see this school as a possible solution.”The curriculum of the new campuses – to be based in Chadstone (Tuesday evenings) and the CBD (Saturday mornings) – will be based on existing textbooks used in Greece, not those published for Greeks of the diaspora.Recently the teaching staff, headed by the new school’s coordinator, Maria Bakalidou, conducted a workshop to flesh out the curriculum and school’s program. Enrolments have already gotten off to a strong start and parental feedback has been encouraging for the GOCMV’s investment in this education initiative.last_img read more

Suncity Group, Bloomberry Resorts unveil Wakayama IR visions RelatedPosts Load More Strong mass volume and VIP hold at Solaire boost Bloomberry revenue, profit in 2Q19 In a statement, TIEZA said it has forwarded the proposal from Bloomberry subsidiary Sureste Properties Inc to the Office of the President.“President Duterte expressed no objection to the proposal subject to the compliance of all government required permits and environmental clearances. He made reference in particular to the impact to the environment and his policy of zero tolerance on corruption,” TIEZA said.“By 2020, the first phase, at US$82 million project cost, will prioritize the main navigation components for the Solaire Cruise Center (SCC) and the construction of the berth for the homeport (which will initially be a port-of-call facility).“The project shall be applied for designation as a Tourism Enterprise Zone of TIEZA, under which the proponent can avail of fiscal and non-fiscal incentives and pursue other workable expectations.”Commenting on its proposal, Bloomberry said that the application would require approval from a number of government departments before becoming a reality. It added that “the final configuration and cost of the cruise port project will depend on the technical study that an ECC application will require, the approvals of the regulators and market demands.“We will make the appropriate disclosure once the cruise port project hurdles those regulatory requirements and approvals.”last_img read more

Fundraiser nets 32k for Juneau shelter soup kitchen

first_imgThe Glory Hole, Juneau’s emergency homeless shelter and soup kitchen, is temporarily closed due to a burst pipe and flood Sunday night. (Photo by Casey Kelly/KTOO)Five Juneau Native dance groups organized a fundraiser Monday night, which raised about $32,000 for the capital city’s shelter and soup kitchen.Download AudioAbout 400 people attended, contributing money to the Glory Hole through donations, silent auction, fry bread sales, dancing, raffle and a $9,500 matching donation by the Rasmuson Foundation.Nancy Barnes is head of the Yees Ku.oo dance group. She helped organize the fundraiser with Kolene James, who was inspired by a Juneau Empire story on the Glory Hole’s financial deficit.Barnes was blown away by how much the event raised in two hours.“I don’t think anybody thought we were going to make that much money,” Barnes said. “Somebody said, ‘What’s your goal?’ And I was saying, ‘If we raised $5,000 just to help them have a wonderful Christmas, that will be great.’”The Central Council of the Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska helped put on the fundraiser. It donated planning space and the Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall for the event.President Richard Peterson says the Central Council was happy to help.“Our culture’s about holding each other up and the Glory Hole is an entity that’s always holding our people up, so it’s time when they’re hurting to give back and help them out,” Peterson said.Glory Hole Executive Director Mariya Lovishchuk says the funds raised Monday night, plus other donations, will close the $58,000 deficit the shelter was in when the story ran in the newspaper earlier this month.Lovishchuk says the deficit was largely due to a burst pipe that flooded and closed down the shelter last December. The inside of the building had to be rebuilt. The shelter has also been focusing more on getting the Housing First project built than on fundraising.Lovishchuk says she can’t say thank you enough to the dance groups, community organizations and people who contributed to Monday’s fundraiser.“This is beyond gratitude. This was a really amazing thing and it really ensures that we’re going to be able to meet our mission of providing everyone in need of food, shelter and compassion,” Lovishchuk said. “It also means that we’ll keep on working on the Juneau Housing First project and making it a reality.”Lovishchuk says it’s an honor to be supported by the Alaska Native community and to start the New Year on a positive note.last_img read more

GSI discovers huge lime mud deposits

first_imgKolkata: In a significant achievement in Marine Mineral Exploration, Geological Survey of India (GSI) has stumbled upon huge lime mud deposits off Gujarat and Maharashtra coast.The officers of GSI’s Marine & Coastal Survey (MCS) Division located at Mangalore has discovered about 72,000 million tonne of lime mud resource, which they feel is a probable solution to the scarcity of high grade limestone in the country.”India has a large resource of limestone on land, but 97 percent of it is of cement grade and only 3 percent is of steel and chemical grade. Our industrial requirement for steel, blast furnace and chemical grade limestone are met from imports. We are hopeful that this discovery will help our country to cut down on imports of limestone for steel, pharmaceutical and other industries,” said Dr Dinesh Gupta, Director General of GSI at a media conference on Thursday. Officials from GSI’s MCS division, located at Mangalore, joined through video conference. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeThe lime mud resource has been estimated from an area of 6603 sqkm of Arabian Sea with its location at 80-100 km from coast at 55 to 120 m water depth. It may be mentioned that Carbonate rock like limestone and dolomite are important raw materials for the cement, paint, glass and steel industries.Bench scale beneficiation and agglomeration studies carried out at Regional Mineral Processing Laboratory, Indian Bureau of Mines (IBM), Bangalore to understand the industrial utility of offshore lime mud found its suitability for cement and filler industries, flux in blast furnaces in steel plants and steel melting shops. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedDG, GSI also announced the discovery of massive marine sand (construction sand) deposits off Kerala coast.”There is an acute shortage of sand in Kerala and the construction industries in the state are looking for alternative sources. At present, the only alternative available is M-Sand (Manufactured Sand) which is a crushed product of hard rocks. This reserve of good quality sand will immensely benefit construction industry in the state,” a senior GSI official said. More than 745 million tonne of sand has been estimated off Ponnani, Chavakkad, Alleppey and Kollam at four blocks off Kerala coast.last_img read more

Cancun Playa del Carmen return to normal after Alberto

first_imgCancun, Q.R. — After a week of turbulent weather and several days of closed ports, things have returned to normal for Cancun and Playa del Carmen.After the passing of Alberto, the first Atlantic subtropical storm of the year, tourism began to operate normally again in Cancun and Playa del Carmen. Alberto caused a halt to most nautical activity in the region due to pounding rain and strong winds.President of the Nautical Associates of Quintana Roo Iván Ferrat Mancera, said already this year, they have recorded losses estimated at around $1 million USD as the result of poor weather conditions that have forced authorities to partially or fully close ports.He pointed out that the hurricane season is one of the most unstable periods for nautical tourism.As Alberto moved off the coast of Quintana Roo Saturday, port authorities reopened navigation for small vessels and reactivated tourism activities in the area.“Fortunately the yellow alert has been lifted and port authorities have given us the go-ahead to continue with tourist activities,” said Edmundo Muñoz at Playa Mamitas.On Sunday, subtropical Storm Alberto continued to make its way toward the Florida Panhandle after dousing the Mexican Caribbean with heavy rains for several days.According to NOAA, the subtropical storm’s top sustained winds were recorded at 65 mph, causing tropical storm warnings Sunday night from the Mississippi/Alabama border to the Suwanee River in Florida.Hurricane season for the Atlantic Basin officially begins June 1 and is predicted to be a busy season.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 WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgChetumal, Q.R. — With more than 3,000 hectares of land remaining under water in the south of the state, livestock farmers in the central region say they are grateful for the heavy rains.The Ministry of Rural Agricultural Development and Fisheries of Quintana Roo estimate that the heavy rains in June left 3,118 hectares of land severely damaged, affecting 2,500 agriculture producers.The undersecretary of Agriculture of the Ministry of Agricultural Development, Antonio Rico Lomelí explained that in conjunction with federal and municipal agencies, they have analyzed damaged crops in the municipalities of Bacalar, Lázaro Cárdenas and Felipe Carrillo Puerto.He said that work is being done to activate the Catastrophic Agricultural Insurance policy to support the production sectors most damaged by the floods.He pointed out that in total there are more than 12,000 hectares of crops of corn, papaya, pumpkin, chihua, pitahaya, habanero pepper, watermelon, tomato, melon and coconut with floods affecting approximately one-quarter of the land.Raúl Méndez Briceño, president of the Livestock Association of SolidarityHowever, livestock farmers around Playa del Carmen say they remain grateful for the heavy rains that saved them from the drought they were experiencing.Raúl Méndez Briceño, president of the Livestock Association of Solidarity, said that, as the saying goes, “there are no two happinesses” because although the rains caused havoc to many, they proved beneficial to the central farmers.“The rains came and caused the pastures to grow and the paddocks to grow,” said the livestock farmer, adding that the rainfall put an end to the drought that heavily jeopardized their sector this season.Rico Lomelí added that not all the planting is in jeopardy, but that they will continue to monitor crops in the coming days.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 WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Some of these hurdles involve poor infrastructure requiring renovations to existing facilities, a lack of skilled medical personnel, and inadequate storage of medical records and other data.To overcome these obstacles, the World Health Imaging, Telemedicine & Informatics Alliance (WHITIA), is has develped a self-contained, remote-operated, digital, medical imaging device designed to meet the imaging needs of resource-limited areas where skilled medical professionals and technologists are in short supply. The device, Remi-d, combines DR X-ray technology with a remotely controlled avatar technologist and automated patient experience to create a safe, low-cost chest X-ray screening booth for areas of the developing world experiencing HIV/TB co-epidemics, high incidences of black lung diseases or outbreaks of other infectious respiratory diseases. A building that is not well equipped for an X-ray creates a cost barrier to the timely and efficient deployment of imaging equipment. The self-contained nature of the Device eliminates the need for renovations and enables digital X-ray capabilities to be brought to virtually any facility. The use of a DR X-ray system enables Remi-d’s images to be sent to radiologists located anywhere in the world for immediate interpretation and diagnosis.To compensate for a lack of medical personnel available for both taking and interpreting chest X-rays, WHITIA provides remote technologist operating the X-ray system and remote radiologist interpreting the film eliminate the need to have this expertise onsite. A culturally authentic, digital representation of the remote technologist is transmitted through the avatar. The remote technologist guides the patient through the entire X-ray process in much the same manner that it would occur if the technologist were physically present.Because data regarding TB screening needs to be much more effectively stored and transmitted, the electronic capture of patient information allows for a central repository of patient data as well as the dissemination and sharing of that data across stakeholders.Finally, a computer interface allows patients to quickly register for X-ray services and retrieve their results after the diagnostic report has been completed by the radiologist. Patients can choose to have a copy of their results sent to a personal health records site such as Microsoft HealthVault or Google Health or have Remi-d burn a copy of their images onto a CD.*NOTE: Remi-d has not yet been submitted for approval to the FDA.
