Roster spots on the line as Huskies continue prep for season

first_imgWith the Fort St. John Huskies on the verge of beginning their exhibition schedule, the team still has a large amount of bodies taking part in pre-season practices. The team has two extra forward lines in camp and evaluations are still being done to see who will be a part of the team’s opening roster come October.Assistant coach Todd Alexander said after Tuesday night’s practice that the coaching staff is paying attention to players who are able to grasp the concepts the team is trying to run with for the upcoming year.“We still had six lines out on the ice tonight. We were watching and paying attention as a coaching staff to see who can actually figure things out and see who had natural tendencies to go to the right position.”- Advertisement -Competition has been stiff throughout camp with some returning players on the bubble, prompting Alexander to put the team on notice that the coaching staff has no problem parting with players this season.“There’s still lots of competition here. We’ve got lots of guys. At one point I said to the boys out front there that we have lots of players so if you don’t want to be out here and you don’t want to play, no problem. We’re not worried about that this year. We have a lot of interest. There’s some guys that were here last year that are fighting for their jobs right now.”The Huskies have one more practice this week, Thursday night at the Pomeroy Sport Centre where the team will be focusing more on the implementation of their systems of the coming year.Advertisementlast_img read more

Pimm clarifies his position on the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms

first_img[asset|aid=2136|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=issues_and_answers-20091115T2321.mp3]Advertisement Here is the whole video of Pimm’s Speech in the legistature: A longer interview with Pat Pimm will air on this coming Wednesday morning’s episode of Issues and Answers on Moose FM. MLA Pat Pimm has offered a clarification on the recent news story that he was calling for the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms to be scrapped.In an interview that was recorded Saturday for the upcoming episode of Moose FM’s Issues and Answers radio show, Pimm contends that during his speech on the legislature on October 29th about Bill 14, the following statement was misinterpreted by the media:”I just don’t think it’s a good document whatsoever myself, For 99 per cent of the people out there, that document doesn’t even need to exist, first off. It’s only about one per cent or two per cent of the people that it’s even developed for, and it’s to keep the lawyers and the judges and everybody working to support the system…. Charter of Rights, it’s a wonderful document… but who needs it? The people that break the law.”- Advertisement -It was reported by a number of media outlets, including Energeticcity.ca and the Victoria Times Colonist, that Pimm was calling for the Charter to be scrapped, based on what he said during the October 29th speech.Pimm claified that statement by saying he is instead looking for a new “Bill of Responsibilities” to be implemented along-side the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. last_img read more

Lawmakers call for CHP chief’s resignation

first_imgSchwarzenegger appointed Brown, a 30-year CHP employee, in September 2004. Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear said the governor has asked Brown to work with legislators to correct problems within the Highway Patrol. “The governor fully supports Commissioner Brown and is confident that he is working to keep California safe,” McLear said. Several law enforcement organizations and some other lawmakers also defended Brown, praising him for what they see as a quick response to fix problems in the agency. They said problems are inevitable in an agency with 11,000 employees and a $1.8billion annual budget. Romero and Garcia also sent a request for an audit of the CHP to the Joint Legislative Audit Committee, which will consider it next month. “We need to point to one facet of this commissioner, and I would say that would be gross inefficiency as the manager of an organization,” Garcia said. SACRAMENTO – Two legislators said Thursday that the California Highway Patrol commissioner should resign because of a series of problems the lawmakers said illustrated a lack of leadership. The legislators, a Republican and a Democrat, said the problems plaguing the CHP under Commissioner Mike Brown included a spike in suicides among officers, faulty state contracts and questionable use of state-owned equipment. “Clearly, the problem is leadership at the top,” said Senate Majority Leader Gloria Romero, D-Los Angeles. During a news conference, Romero and Assemblywoman Bonnie Garcia, R-Cathedral City, said they wanted Brown to resign. If he doesn’t, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger should fire him, they added. Among problems the two lawmakers cited: A suicide rate among officers that is 7.5 times higher than the national average for the general population. A no-bid contract for nearly 10,000 new handguns that have not performed as promised. Most recently, a key part failed during training, forcing more than 3,000 guns to be repaired. Alleged misconduct by command officers, including one assistant chief suspected of driving drunk, others accused of sexual harassment and Brown’s personal use of a state-owned aircraft. Brown has no intention of resigning and welcomes a state audit, CHP spokeswoman Fran Clader said. “Each of those allegations, as it has arisen, has been addressed,” she said. Assemblyman Pedro Nava, D-Santa Barbara, whose Assembly Transportation Committee oversees the CHP, said calls for Brown’s resignation were premature. “I found him to be responsive whenever issues surfaced,” Nava said. Assemblyman Todd Spitzer, R-Orange, called Brown “a loyal and trusted public employee.” Representatives of the state’s sheriffs and police chiefs’ associations also supported Brown.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Crystal Palace 0-3 Chelsea: Oscar, Willian and Costa stun the Eagles – Are the Blues back?

first_img Chelsea comfortably beat Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park Chelsea sealed their first away win in the Premier League since August 23rd, and their first under interim manager Guus Hiddink, after easing past Crystal Palace 3-0 at Selhurst Park.Oscar, Willian and Diego Costa got their names on the scoresheet, as the reigning champions put in a stylish performance to overwhelm Alan Pardew’s injury-hit Eagles side and clinch victory.It was a bright start for Crystal Palace who, following a burst forward on the left wing from Chung-yong Lee, won an early corner. The subsequent set piece, however, was comfortably cleared by Chelsea and allowed the visitors to give a glimpse of the difficult afternoon they had in store for the hosts.Diego Costa, returning to the starting line up having been forced to sit out the goalless draw with Manchester United through suspension, looked eager to get on the ball, leading the line with confidence and a desire to make life difficult for Scott Dann and Damien Delaney.After a tame opening 15 minutes, Hiddink was delivered a blow, with the Dutchman forced to make an early substitution. The current PFA Player of the Year Eden Hazard, who looked to hold his groin not long after kick-off, signalled to the bench to come off, with Pedro taking his place.Nonetheless, the change in personnel didn’t prove to be too much of a problem, with the former Barcelona winger looking eager to make a quick impression in the final third.With just over 20 minutes on the clock and few chances on goal to speak of, the Eagles were beginning to threaten and looked the more dangerous side, with Fraizer Campbell and Wilfried Zaha giving Kurt Zouma and John Terry plenty of work to do.However, as the narrative so often goes, it was Chelsea who took the lead.In what has not been said very often this season, and against the run of play, Cesc Fabregas played a perfectly weighted pass into the path of Costa, and the Brazil-born striker set the ball back to Oscar, who comfortably tapped home.The goal gave the Blues a much-needed boost, and Hiddink’s men began to look comfortable on the ball, and could, for perhaps the first time this campaign, be described as a unit.Fabregas, enjoying one of his finest performances this season, and Oscar were now beginning to orchestrate proceedings from deep, and it wasn’t long before another chance fell their way.The latter looped a ball into the box to Cesar Azpilicueta on the left flank, but the Spaniard’s effort was fired straight at Wayne Hennessey.Palace therefore had all the work to do in the second-half but, despite struggling for possession, with just the solitary goal separating the two sides, the game was far from over.Pardew sent his men out onto the Selhurst Park turf early, but this tactic didn’t have the impact intended, with Chelsea’s confidence continuing on from their impressive opening 45 minutes.And Zouma, having a superb afternoon, should have doubled Chelsea’s lead shortly after the interval. Willian whipped a delicious free-kick into the box, which met the head of the Frenchman, but his powerful effort flew agonisingly wide.This miss was soon forgotten, though, when Willian, the Blues’ standout player of the season so far, smashed the ball into the back of the net from the edge of the box.And, only moments later, Costa made it three following some more impressive work again from Willian. The winger tried his luck on goal in the box, and Hennessey could only parry the ball into the path of the onrushing Costa, back amongst the goals after his brace against Watford on Boxing Day.It now seemed game over for the hosts who, in spite of the continued signing from the home crowd, will have been eager for full-time.Chelsea could have extended their lead to further rub salt into their opponent’s wounds, with Costa blasting a volley on his weaker foot over the bar late on.The third goal, however, ended the contest to seal Chelsea’s first Premier League away win since their 3-2 victory over West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on August 23rd.It was a disappointing afternoon for Pardew and his side, and the English manager will be hopeful that injuries to his squad soon begin to ease. 1last_img read more
