MIAMI, Jul 31 2020 (IPS) – In the cinematic context of the death of the Italian and universal composer, Ennio Morricone, author of the background music of more than four hundred films, as an indirect tribute, Europe took a solid step.

The European Union’s (EU) forceful ban on accepting travelers from the rest of the world has been decided simultaneously with a collective option: an internal opening that covers the entire territory of the Schengen Agreement, an enlarged EU that includes some special non-members (Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and the microstates).

Furthermore, the EU seems to favor some countries that belong to its protection ring of its immediate neighborhood: Algeria, Georgia, Tunisia and Morocco...

’Don’t want my brother to die:’ Inmate’s sister worried about his mental health

Article content continued

“They recently shot him in the face with a rubber bullet,” she said.

The Correctional Service of Canada did not respond to a request for comment.

Metcalfe says Dinardo’s case is like many others. She notes that she and other advocates continue to point out the overrepresentation of Indigenous peoples in Canada’s prisons.

The Office of the Correctional Investigator has raised concerns about the use of force reported at treatment centres and the psychological effects of being isolated.

In the 2018-19 annual report, the federal watchdog stated that human rights are violated when incarnated people are “punished” for behaviours tied to underlying mental-health issues.

Dinardo details one time this year when, upon returning to his maximum-security prison a...

Rolston: Not all of us carry the same privileges during the COVID-19 pandemic

Article content continued

Canada has only recently started tracking race-based health data, due to the strong urging of leaders in Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) communities. Apart from the crisis in long-term care facilities, which were hanging by a thread before the pandemic, it was predominantly these populations, in low-income, dense housing that were hit hardest by COVID-19.

In Windsor-Essex, the migrant workers living in dorm-style housing with no access to health care continued to get sick and die. Many in Toronto and Montreal had precarious employment, which put their health in jeopardy, or held high-risk jobs in factories or performed shift work. Many were new immigrants and refugees, some of whom had undiagnosed chronic diseases and no family doctor.

MacPherson: Tiger Moth flight brings history to life


Article content continued

A few days and a couple of phone calls later I was on the ramp, climbing awkwardly into the biplane’s open cockpit, fumbling with the period-correct three-point harness and wondering what the flight would feel like.

(For the record, I booked the flight on personal time and paid for it myself. I did it because I wanted to, and didn’t even consider writing about it until after we’d landed.)

“Squeezing the brake pedal” – Boris Johnson. Photo: PA Video/PA Wire/PA Images

Employers are encouraged to bring workers back to workplaces if it is safe to do so, even though the government is squeezing the “brake pedal” on the easing of restrictions because of increases in the number of coronavirus infections.

Boris Johnson postponed the reopening of the remaining “close-contact” business sectors – including bowling alleys, skating rinks and casinos – for two weeks to 15 August. Wedding receptions and indoor performances will also not resume.

At the previous briefing the Prime Minister announced that employers are to be given more discretion to make decisions about how their staff can work safely.

But despite new figures from the Office for National Statistics suggest...
