A timeline of the SNCLavalin affair

first_imgOTTAWA — A chronology of the SNC-Lavalin controversy, according to public documents, reports and testimony to the House of Commons justice committee:Feb. 19, 2015 – The RCMP lays corruption and fraud charges against Montreal-based engineering and construction firm SNC-Lavalin, over business dealings in Libya. SNC-Lavalin says the charges are without merit and the allegations linked to people no longer with the company. A conviction could bar the company from bidding on federal contracts.Oct. 19 – The Liberals win a federal election. Two weeks later, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau names Jody Wilson-Raybould minister of justice and attorney general of Canada. She is the first Indigenous person to hold the post.March 27, 2018 – The Liberals table a budget bill allowing for “remediation agreements,” plea-bargain-like deals for corporations to avoid criminal proceedings by making reparations for bad behaviour. SNC-Lavalin had lobbied for such a provision in Canadian law.Sept. 4 – The Public Prosecution Service rejects SNC-Lavalin’s request to negotiate a remediation agreement. Wilson-Raybould is told about the decision. No public announcement is made.Sept. 6 – According to Wilson-Raybould’s testimony, Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s chief of staff, Ben Chin, warns his counterpart in Wilson-Raybould’s office, Jessica Prince, of job losses during a Quebec provincial election absent a deal for SNC-Lavalin.Sept. 8 – Justice Department deputy minister Nathalie Drouin provides Wilson-Raybould with a briefing note on the attorney general’s powers on remediation agreements.Sept. 16 – According to Wilson-Raybould’s testimony, officials in the PMO call Prince. They say the Crown prosecutor wants to negotiate an agreement, unlike the director of prosecutions, and suggest a solution before the company’s board meets in four days.Sept. 17 – According to Wilson-Raybould’s testimony, Trudeau asks Wilson-Raybould to “find a solution” for SNC-Lavalin to avoid job losses, talks about the Quebec election and notes that he is a Quebec MP.“Are you politically interfering with my role, my decision as the attorney general? I would strongly advise against it,” Wilson-Raybould says, according to her justice committee testimony. Trudeau says, “No. We just need to find a solution.”Wernick raises the election as well, but he later testifies that he did so to highlight the long-standing convention for the federal government to stay out of provincial campaigns.Sept. 21 – The remediation-agreement provisions come into force.Oct. 9 – The prosecution service confirms it will not negotiate an agreement with SNC-Lavalin. The company challenges the decision in Federal Court.Oct. 15 – According to Wernick’s testimony, he takes a call from Kevin Lynch, the chairman of the board of SNC-Lavalin and a former clerk of the Privy Council. Lynch asks about a remediation agreement and what can be done. He tells Lynch the company’s lawyers will have to deal with the prosecutor.Oct. 26 – According to Wilson-Raybould’s testimony, official Mathieu Bouchard muses to Prince about getting outside legal advice on a deal for SNC-Lavalin. Wilson-Raybould later recounts that Bouchard brings up the need for the Liberals to get re-elected in 2019.Dec. 5 – Wilson-Raybould and Gerry Butts, Trudeau’s principal secretary, meet for dinner at the Chateau Laurier. SNC-Lavalin is discussed, but the two later give differing accounts of the tone of the conversation.Dec. 18 – Prince meets with Butts and Katie Telford, Trudeau’s chief of staff. Afterwards, Prince texts Wilson-Raybould, citing Butts as saying, “there is no solution here that does not involve some interference” after being told what is being proposed is political interference in a prosecution. She cites Telford as saying “we don’t want to debate legalities anymore.”Butts later tells the justice committee that he didn’t — or wouldn’t — have used the word “solution” and denies anything nefarious in his comments. The point of the meeting, and anything said, was about getting a second opinion from someone like a former Supreme Court justice because the law had never been applied before.Dec. 19 – According to Wilson-Raybould, Wernick warns her she is on a collision course with the prime minister and Trudeau wants to get a deal done. Wernick later testifies that he doesn’t recall saying that.Jan. 7, 2019 – Trudeau tells Wilson-Raybould she is being shuffled out of the justice portfolio. Wilson-Raybould says the PMO denies the move is over the SNC-Lavalin file.Jan. 14 – Trudeau shuffles his cabinet. David Lametti, a Montreal MP and former law professor, becomes justice minister. Jane Philpott becomes Treasury Board president. Wilson-Raybould becomes veterans-affairs minister.Feb. 7 – Citing unnamed sources, the Globe and Mail newspaper reports that Trudeau’s aides pressed Wilson-Raybould to intervene in the SNC-Lavalin case. Trudeau calls the allegations false.Feb. 11 – Trudeau says Wilson-Raybould’s continued presence in his cabinet speaks for itself and that he told her any decision on SNC-Lavalin was hers alone. Meanwhile, ethics commissioner Mario Dion launches an investigation.Feb. 12 – Wilson-Raybould resigns from cabinet. Trudeau says she had a duty to tell him about any undue pressure applied to her in her role as attorney general.Feb. 13 – The House of Commons justice committee debates its own probe. Liberals use their majority to push for a narrow hearing that doesn’t include Wilson-Raybould. The Liberals call it a first step in a cautious investigation. The opposition calls it a coverup.Feb. 15 – Trudeau says Wilson-Raybould asked him in September whether he would direct her on SNC-Lavalin. He says he told her he would not.Feb. 18 – Butts resigns. He denies any impropriety but says his presence in the PMO has become a distraction.Feb. 19 – Wilson-Raybould stuns observers by addressing a cabinet meeting. Cabinet confidentiality means nothing can be revealed about why or what was said.Feb. 20 – Trudeau says he is confident probes by Dion and the justice committee will provide an airing of the facts. The Liberals use their majority to defeat an opposition motion calling for a public inquiry.Feb. 21 – Wernick testifies for the first time before the justice committee. He calls allegations of political interference false and even defamatory and says none of his conversations crossed any lines.Feb. 25 – Trudeau partly waives solicitor-client privilege and cabinet confidentiality so Wilson-Raybould can speak publicly, but not about communication with Kathleen Roussel, the director of public prosecutions.Feb. 27 – Wilson-Raybould tells the justice committee she came under “consistent and sustained” pressure — including veiled threats — from the PMO, the Privy Council Office and Morneau’s office to halt the criminal prosecution of SNC-Lavalin. Trudeau rejects her characterization of events. Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer calls on Trudeau to resign. NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh calls for a public inquiry.Feb. 28 – Butts asks to testify before the justice committee.March 1 – Trudeau makes longtime MP Lawrence MacAulay his new veterans-affairs minister, replacing Wilson-Raybould. Marie-Claude Bibeau replaces MacAulay as agriculture minister and Gender Equality Minister Maryam Monsef takes on the additional portfolio of international development. All three express support for Trudeau.March 4 – Philpott quits cabinet, saying she has lost confidence in the way the government has dealt with the ongoing affair and citing her obligation to defend the cabinet as long as she is a part of it. Trudeau names Carla Qualtrough interim Treasury Board president.At a rally in Toronto, Trudeau says the ongoing affair “has generated an important discussion” about how ministers, staff and officials conduct themselves. “Concerns of this nature,” he says, “must be taken very seriously and I can assure you that I am.”March 6 – Butts tells the justice committee that Wilson-Raybould never complained about improper pressure to halt the criminal prosecution of SNC-Lavalin until Trudeau decided to move her out of her coveted cabinet role as justice minister and attorney general. Wernick disputes parts of her testimony as well. Drouin provides more details about the timeline.March 19 – The justice committee’s next scheduled meeting, which is also federal budget day, when MPs are to debate calling further witnesses. Opposition MPs on the committee have indicated they want to recall Wilson-Raybould as well as several officials from the Prime Minister’s Office.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Federal probe finds coordinated social media trolls in Alberta election

first_imgA federal agency investigating the recent Alberta election has found evidence the campaign featured tactics including co-ordinated, false social media postings.In a report released late Friday, the Rapid Response Mechanism — created by the G-7 to monitor foreign influence on democratic elections — identified social media accounts that demonstrated “co-ordinated inauthentic behaviour.”The agency was created by the G7 at the 2018 conference in Charleboix, Que. It is intended to strengthen co-ordination between members in identifying, preventing and responding to threats to G7 democracies from foreign actors using social media to meddle in elections.The agency is based in Canada.On its website, it says it investigated the Alberta vote to see if foreign players were involved.“The Alberta election was identified as being at risk of interference because of the extent to which environmental issues were debated,” it says.No organized influence was exerted from outside the province’s borders, it found. However, Albertans seemed keen to use those tactics themselves.“(We) identified communities that demonstrated a suspicious account creation pattern that is indicative of troll or bot activity,” the report says. “It was mainly comprised of supporters of the United Conservative Party.“The pattern was not identified within communities of supporters of the Alberta Liberal Party or Alberta New Democratic Party.”The report bases this conclusion on a large number of social media accounts created by UCP supporters in the first months of 2019. That analysis was combined with an evaluation of the behaviour of those accounts and the network they were part of.“These are indications of likely inauthentic behaviour.”The report adds that third-party lobby groups were also “spreading disinformation online” before the balloting.The United Conservative Party, led by Jason Kenney, won the April vote.Bots are social media programs designed to artificially generate social media posts that appear as if written by an actual person. Trolls are social media users who intentionally initiate online conflict so as to provoke emotional responses and derail discussions.Bots and trolls can be used together to amplify their effect.The report suggests that although false postings were being systematically disseminated on social media, they weren’t central to the debate taking place among voters. It discounts previous estimates that as many as one-third of postings during the campaign were from bots.“The presence of automated inauthentic activities does not appear central or crucial to the overall conversation,” it says.It did say, supporters of the People’s Party of Canada, led by Maxime Bernier, also showed “suspicious patterns” of social media account creation.It also found a small number of accounts pushing Alberta independence.“Creating false separatist movements or amplifying domestic ones is a known tactic in foreign interference. At this time, (the agency) cannot tie this small group of accounts to any foreign entity.”The report suggests that Canadian political actors are picking up some nasty habits — with unsettling consequences for the approaching national vote.“Domestic actors are also emulating the tactics used by foreign actors within the context of provincial elections,” its says. “This behaviour will make it increasingly difficult to distinguish national from foreign interference efforts in the upcoming federal election.”last_img read more

Centre issues drought advisory to southern and western states

first_imgNew Delhi: With water storage in dams dropping to a “critical” level, the Centre has issued a “drought advisory” to Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Tamil Nadu, asking them to use water judiciously.The advisory was issued to Tamil Nadu on Friday and similar cautionary letters were sent to Maharashtra, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana late last week, said S K Haldar, a member of the Central Water Commission (CWC). Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra SinghThe drought advisory is issued to states when the water level in reservoirs is 20 per cent less than the average of live water storage figures of the past 10 years. Water falls under the state list and the advisory recommends states to use it for drinking purpose only till the dams are replenished. The CWC monitors water storage available in 91 major reservoirs across the country. According to the figures released on Thursday, the total water storage available was 35.99 billion cubic metres (BCM), which is 22 per cent of total storage capacity of these reservoirs. The total storage capacity of these 91 reservoirs is 161.993 BCM.

The situation seems to be grim in western and southern parts of the country. The western region includes Gujarat and Maharashtra. There are 27 reservoirs — 10 in Gujarat and 17 in Maharashtra having a total live storage capacity of 31.26 BCM — under the CWC monitoring The total live storage available in these reservoirs is 4.10 BCM until May 16, which is 13 per cent of total live storage capacity. The storage in 27 reservoirs of these two states during the corresponding period of last year was 18 per cent and average storage of last 10 years was 22 per cent. The situation in Marathwada is particulary critical where the water level in 45 major dams has hit an alarmingly low level. On Tuesday, Skymet, a private weather forecasting agency, said rainfall in Vidarbha, Marathwada, west Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat will be “poorer than normal”. The southern region includes states of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. There are 31 reservoirs — two of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana together, Andhra Pradesh (1), Telangana (2), Karnataka (14), Kerala (6) and Tamil Nadu (6) — under CWC monitoring having total live storage capacity of 51.59 BCM. “The total live storage available in these reservoirs is 6.86 BCM, which is 13 per cent of total live storage capacity of these reservoirs. The storage during corresponding period of last year was 13 per cent and average storage of last ten years during corresponding period was 16 per cent,” the CWC said. Situation seems to be better in the northern region which includes states of Himachal Pradesh, Punjab and Rajasthan. There are six reservoirs under CWC monitoring having a total live storage capacity of 18.01 BCM. The total live storage available in these reservoirs is 8.54 BCM which is 47 per cent of total live storage capacity of these reservoirs. The eastern region includes states of Jharkhand, Odisha, West Bengal and Tripura. There are 15 reservoirs under CWC monitoring having total live storage capacity of 18.83 BCM. The total live storage available in these reservoirs is 5.04 BCM which is 27 per cent of total live storage capacity of these reservoirs.last_img read more

Plan to protect Colorado River still isn’t done. Now what?

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Another federal deadline has passed for seven states in the U.S. West to finish a plan to protect the drought-stricken Colorado River.The river delivers water to 40 million people in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. The states have been crafting drought contingency plans for years.But Arizona and California missed a deadline Monday and another set earlier by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.Without a consensus, the agency will allow governors from the seven states to weigh in with recommendations on what to do next. The federal government also could step in and impose its own rules in the river’s lower basin.The comment period ends March 19. The bureau says it can call off the process if all states complete work before then.Felicia Fonseca, The Associated Press read more

Conflict and chronic poverty leave millions of Yemenis in need of relief

Large segments of the population of Yemen are enduring chronic deprivation exacerbated by the breakdown of the delivery of essential social services as a result of civil unrest and widespread violence, a senior United Nations relief official who just returned from the country said today.“We are seeing rates of malnutrition in young children comparable to those in Somalia,” said Catherine Bragg, the Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, who completed a four-day mission to the country earlier this week.“A third of the population… doesn’t know where their next meal is coming from, [amid] a looming health crisis,” Ms. Bragg, who is also the Deputy Relief Coordinator, told reporters at UN Headquarters.She said scarcity of resources and the growing influx of refugees and migrants from the Horn of Africa have placed further strain on host communities, who are increasingly in need of assistance themselves, especially in the form of food, health care, sanitation and clean water.Humanitarian agencies are requesting a total of $452 million for relief work in Yemen next year, a 35 per cent increase from this year. The funding will cover food and nutrition, water, sanitation and health and ensure that the most vulnerable people receive the assistance they need, Ms. Bragg said.“In 2012, we and our partners will expand humanitarian programmes so that we can reach as many as possible of the 3.8 million people across Yemen needing life-saving aid. This figure includes internally displaced people, refugees, as well as the host communities,” she said.She travelled to Aden in the south, Harad’h in the north, and the capital, Sana’a, to assess the crisis, discuss with partners ways of responding to the growing needs and ensure that the authorities understand the gravity of the situation.Tens of thousands of people have been displaced by the fighting in Abyan Governorate in the south in recent months, she said, adding that most of the internally displaced persons (IDPs) are living with host families or in school buildings in Aden and neighbouring governorates.“I spoke to the local authorities about the need to find lasting solutions for people sheltering in the schools. I also underlined the fact that humanitarian workers must have independent access to all areas where civilians are being displaced.”In the north, about 300,000 people remain displaced by the conflict in Sa’ada. Many of them are unable to return to their homes because of insecurity, fear of retaliation, and loss of livelihoods and assets. Several aid agencies have had to reduce their presence because of threats made by armed groups, Ms. Bragg added.In her meetings with Government officials, Ms. Bragg urged them to expedite procedures for issuing visas to international non-governmental organizations staff so that aid workers can set up operations in the country faster. 2 December 2011Large segments of the population of Yemen are enduring chronic deprivation exacerbated by the breakdown of the delivery of essential social services as a result of civil unrest and widespread violence, a senior United Nations relief official who just returned from the country said today. read more

Mamata counters Modis barbs on her describes him as Expiry PM

first_imgDinhata (WB): West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Wednesday launched a blistering attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi describing him as “Expiry PM”, and strongly contested his allegations against her as being a ‘speedbreaker’ in the path of state’s development. Banerjee gave point-by-point rebuttal of charges levelled by Modi at rallies at Siliguri and later at Kolkata’s Brigade ground during the day, to nail the “lies” spoken about performance of her government. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: Mamata The war of words between Modi and Banerjee heated up the battle of Bengal in the ongoing general election. Bengal sends a total of 42 members to Lok Sabha, the third largest after Uttar Pradesh’s 80 and Maharashtra 48. Modi kickstarted BJP’s campaing in the state Wednesday launching onslaught on TMC supremo. Banerjee, whose partymen see her a PM candidate, preponed start of poll campaign in the state with a rally at Dinhata in Cooch Behar district to coincide with PM’s public meeting Wednesday. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in state Describing Modi as “Expiry Babu” and “Expiry PM”, Banerjee questioned what his government at the Centre has done for the welfare of people of the country. She dared him to participate in direct debate with her in television or in a public rally. Claiming that her government in West Bengal has done a lot for the welfare of the people of the state, Banerjee told a public rally here that income of farmers in the state has increased three times under her rule. “I am not Modi,I don’t tell lies,” she said, alleging that the PM has made false claims on performance of TMC government in West Bengal. She claimed that 12,000 farmers committed suicide during Modi rule in the country. The West Bengal chief minister said that her government has implemented several welfare schemes for the people of the state, like ‘Kanyashree’ for girls, ‘Yuvashree’ for the young people. “PM should not lie. You claim to have a 56 inch chest and u are resorting to lies,” she said. Banerjee said that West Bengal has been awarded by the Government of India for being the best among all states in implementing the 100-day minimum work guarantee scheme. “Its not my claim but your government has given the award for the achievement,” the firebrand leader said. Banerjee was termed as a speedbreaker in the path of the state’s development by the PM a couple of hours back in a rally at Siliguri. Rejecting Modi’s claim of doing everything for the welfare of tea garden workers, she said “you had promised to reopen seven closed tea gardens, but you have not done anything.” She said that Modi had promised before the 2014 elections to give every poor person Rs 15 lakhs in their bank accounts, but has not given a single penny. Banerjee also said that the BJP government at the Centre has not done anything for the Rajbanghsis, an ethnic group with a sizeable population in the North Bengal despite having made “tall claims.” Regarding Modi’s accusation that Banerjee has deprived the people of West Bengal of benefits under Ayushman Bharat scheme, she said the PM was seeking all credit for it though the state government had to shell out 40 per cent of the cost of the programme. “Why should I give it to you, I will do it myself,” she said. She said that her government will introduce a scheme that will benefit 7.5 crore people in the state. Charting out achievements and welfare schemes of her government that has been in power in Bengal since 2011, Banerjee said that she has introduced insurance for farmers and waived mutation fees for farmland sales. Livid at the PM’s accusations against her on the Pulwama attacks and the Balakot airstrike in Pakistan, Banerjee said “we are nationalists and not fascists.” She said that the Centre had prior intelligence on a possible terror attack on the CRPF convoy, but despite that the Pulwama incident happened in which 40 troopers were killed. Saying that Modi should not try to teach her nationalism, she said “you had information, but without taking action you led the CPRF jawans to death.” Banerjee said that Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has insulted that the Armed forces of the country by terming them as ‘Modi Sena’. She alleged that ‘Modi Sena’ are those who indulge in rioting and assaulting people who do not conform to their ways, and terming the country’s Army the same is an insult to the bravehearts who serve the country. Regarding Modi’s claim that her boat was sinking in Bengal, Banerjee said “Agey Delhi samla, tarpor dekhish Bangla (First manage Delhi and then look at Bengal).” Claiming that the “Chowkidar is acting like a fascist,” she said “you are talking of air strike, you will see voter strike.” She claimed that in Assam NRC, 22 lakh Hindu Bengali voters have been excluded, while 23 lakh Bengali muslims have been left out of the citizenship register in the north-eastern state. The chief minister said that though Modi has assured the Gorkhas in Darjeeling and other places in the state that they have nothing to worry about the NRC, she said that there are several elements in it for the Gorkhas to fear. “Go to Assam to see how many people have died and how many families have been devastated because of NRC,” she said. Banerjee claimed that if the BJP government returned to power in the general elections,they will change the Constitution and there will be no democracy in the country. Claiming that the Modi government intimidates anyone opposing it by raids and other tactics, she dared the PM saying “Catch me if you can, touch me if you can.” “I am also from a Hindu family. ..but I don’t go by your Hinduism. My parents did not teach me this type of Hinduism where you hate people,” she said.last_img read more

Quarterly Price Gains Slow Declines Anticipated

first_imgQuarterly Price Gains Slow; Declines Anticipated Share Clear Capital Distressed sales Home Prices 2014-03-06 Tory Barringer An early look at housing data in February shows a severe slowdown in home price growth as distressed sales activity grows stronger.Clear Capital released earlier this week its latest Home Data Index (HDI) Market Report, recording only a 1 percent gain in home prices over the quarter ending last month. That figure is down from a 2.5 percent pace of growth for the January quarter.While many price indicators have pointed to slowdowns over the last few months, the latest trend could be the start of something worse, says Dr. Alex Villacorta, VP of research and analytics at Clear Capital.“Our early data shows national quarterly price gains are falling at a rapid pace and suggest overall prices could dip into negative territory soon if current conditions continue,” he said.Three out of the 15 lowest performing metro markets in the latest HDI reported slight price declines over the quarter, while the remaining 12 were mostly flat. With winter not quite over yet, near-term price declines “are not out of the question,” according to Clear Capital.Adding to the problem is a 1.8 percentage point uptick in national REO saturation, which stood at 22.7 percent as of the end of February—further threatening price trends.“Since the market fallout in 2006, home prices have dramatically declined during sustained periods of rising distressed sale activity,” Villacorta explained. “Over the last two years, however, rising distressed sales have been offset by investor demand, which is not guaranteed to be present in 2014.”He added:  “Though it is not unusual to see rising distressed activity over the winter months, the current housing picture gives reason to be concerned. If we don’t see a correction come spring, the housing market may be in for a long year.”center_img March 6, 2014 479 Views in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, Newslast_img read more

FORT WORTH Texas — Between them the Schieffer br

first_img FORT WORTH, Texas — Between them, the Schieffer brothers of Fort Worth have moderated presidential debates, anchored network newscasts for 35 years, built a pro baseball stadium and team and served America as one of our leading diplomats.The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports from their upbringing 10 years apart in River Oaks and Benbrook, Bob and Tom Schieffer became Fort Worth’s emissaries to Washington, D.C., and the world.Both recently talked about growing up in Fort Worth.For years, people here actually argued about whether they were Democrats or Republicans, and sometimes even about whether they were brothers.Bob Schieffer, now 82, was the calm voice delivering even-handed CBS News reports as an anchor and host from 1975 until as recently as a “Face the Nation” appearance in April.Former Ambassador Tom Schieffer, 71, was a one-time Texas House Democrat who ran baseball’s Texas Rangers, represented America in Australia and Japan under President George W. Bush and then came home in 2009 and ran an eight-month campaign for governor. (His slogan: “Tom for Texas.”)Bob was a baseball catcher at North Side High School and Texas Christian University. Tom went to Arlington Heights High School and the University of Texas.On Nov. 22, 1963, when President John F. Kennedy spoke in Fort Worth and was later fatally shot in Dallas, Bob was a 26-year-old Star-Telegram reporter who had stayed out till the wee hours showing the White House press corps the town.He came home just as Tom, 16, was going out to see Kennedy speak downtown where the JFK Tribute now stands.Later that day, a Star-Telegram reader phoned the newsroom asking for a ride to Dallas because her son had been arrested. So Schieffer and Star-Telegram auto editor Bill Foster picked up Marguerite Oswald, mother of Lee Harvey Oswald.“We’ve always done very different things, and so has Sharon, and all with a great deal of success,” Tom Schieffer said this month, referring to sister Sharon Schieffer Mayes, in the crowd as the brothers were honoured with the Exchange Club’s annual community Golden Deeds Award.Mayes, a teacher and principal, was praised by both brothers along with their mother, Gladys, a Democratic Party precinct chair in the days when that party’s moderate wing governed Texas.“I don’t think we ever thought of ourselves as sibling rivals — our mother wouldn’t have stood for that,” Tom Schieffer said.“Our father (John worked in construction) died when I was 10. Bob became the father figure. Then he went to the Air Force, came back and moved right back to help take care of me.”Bob Schieffer and his wife, Pat, have lived in Washington, D.C., or New York for 50 years. Tom Schieffer and his wife, Susanne, came home from Japan in 2009 to Westworth Village, not far from the little frame homes where the Schieffers grew up on first Kessler Road and then Merritt Street.“I still think of myself as being from Fort Worth,” Bob Schieffer said.“Fort Worth is different.

Anime studio hit by deadly fire is known for skill

first_imgAnime studio hit by deadly fire is known for skill, fan base by Mari Yamaguchi, The Associated Press Posted Jul 18, 2019 9:06 am PDT Smoke billows from a three-story building of Kyoto Animation in a fire in Kyoto, western Japan, Thursday, July 18, 2019. Kyoto prefectural police said the fire broke out Thursday morning after a man burst into it and spread unidentified liquid and put fire. (Kyodo News via AP) AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TOKYO — It may not be as famous as Japanese anime legend Studio Ghibli, but Kyoto Animation has many core fans and is known as a team of skilled animators that provides top-quality work for others and can produce its own hits, such as “Lucky Star,” ”K-On!” and the “Haruhi Suzumiya” series.The company hit by a deadly fire on Thursday also has a unique founding history.The company was started in 1981 by a former animator who recruited housewives from her neighbourhood in Uji city south of Kyoto, where she married and moved from Tokyo, the centre of the animation industry.Yoko Hatta previously had worked at Mushi Production, a studio for the works of anime legend Osamu Tezuka, who created Astro Boy and Kimba the White Lion.The company better known as KyoAni doesn’t have a major presence in Japan but has won gradual recognition while providing secondary animation work for major productions. Their work included a 1998 “Pokemon” feature that appeared in U.S. theatres and a “Winnie the Pooh” video.While providing work for top artists, the company has been able to make and feature its own stories in Japanese TV anime and comic series. Some of its mega-hits include “Lucky Star” in 2008, “K-On!” in 2011 and “Haruhi Suzumiya” in 2009. The company was preparing for a planned release of a new feature animation film “Violet Evergarden,” a story of a woman who professionally writes letters for clients.Places featured in the hit animation stories have become pilgrimage destinations for anime fans.Among them is Washinoniya Jinja, a shrine in Saitama prefecture just north of Tokyo, a scene in the TV animation series “Lucky Star,” or “Raki Suta,” based on comics by Kagami Yoshimizu.Years after the TV animation ended, the area still attracts fans of Raki Suta girls, with goods featuring the characters sold at its neighbourhood stores, and a portable shrine decorated with the anime characters appearing at an annual festival in September.Ryusuke Hikawa, a pop culture expert at Meiji University, said Kyoto Animation became a brand name for “a general company that can provide high-quality presentation and animation,” while demonstrating its capability even away from Tokyo.“Kyoto Animation demonstrated that a top brand can come from outside the capital,” Hikawa told an interview with NHK television. “It was a major breakthrough, and was a revolutionary change to the Japanese animation industry.”The company’s 160 employees work at studios in Uji and Kyoto and an office in Tokyo. The company also trains aspiring animators, produces and sells novelty goods featuring its characters. A store selling such items is near the studio damaged by Thursday’s fire in which authorities say 33 people were killed.The attack shocked animation fans across in and outside Japan. Even Prime Minister Shinzo Abe mourned for the victims as he tweeted that he was speechless at the magnitude of the damage.Anime fans expressed anger, prayed and mourned for the victims on social media. A cloud-funding site was set up to help the company rebuild.___Follow Mari Yamaguchi on Twitter at https://www.twitter.com/mariyamaguchiMari Yamaguchi, The Associated Presslast_img read more
