Ottawa let Catholic Church off the hook for millions in residential school

first_imgPaul Barnsley APTN InvestigatesThe source of an April 2016 Globe and Mail report outlining a mistake by federal government lawyers which allowed the Catholic Church to escape paying $21 million in obligations to the Residential School Settlement Agreement, now says that number is actually millions of dollars higher.Ron Kidd, of Vancouver, said that of the $54 million various Catholic Church entities had agreed to pay, $37,875,660 has not been paid.Kidd is a former provincial tax auditor, self-appointed church watchdog, and gay rights activist. He has a history of successfully leading anti-discrimination cases that trace back to the early 1990s.He claims to have been instrumental in leading Globe reporters to the original story and then working closely with NDP MP Charlie Angus’ staff to put detailed questions to the government to access more information about the Church’s obligations.“It was triggered by specific events, which is that in 1981 and 1986, the Catholic Church led the opposition to amend Ontario’s Human Rights Act to include gay people on the basis that we were a threat to family values. And I felt that if you really believe that human rights is sacred and divine, the church would be in favour of equality for gay people.”After getting a Certified General Accountant designation in 1990, Kidd worked for the British Columbia government for more than a decade as a tax auditor.He says the paper trail is clear.“I’m being very careful to try to show you in all cases where I got the information. It isn’t a matter that an accountant is saying that the numbers are such and such,” he said.(Ron Kidd) In all, the 50 Catholic Entities who were parties to the settlement agreement committed to pay $54 million. Twenty-nine million was to go “in-kind” contributions to the Aboriginal Healing Foundation. An additional $25 million was to go to “best efforts” fundraising. All of the money was intended to pay for programs that would help residential school survivors.Most legal dictionaries refer to “in kind” payments as those that are made through providing “goods, commodities or services” rather than cash.Lawyers differ on what the term “best efforts” means. Some say it’s a higher standard than making a “reasonable effort” to keep a commitment, others say a reasonable effort that can stop short of putting yourself at risk of bankruptcy is sufficient to be able to say you made your best effort.The church entities committed to making their best effort to raise the $25 million but argued that despite those efforts, they did not succeed.Best efforts campaign came up “woefully short” “[Survivors] were supposed to get $25 million, and they got only one million,” Kidd said, adding he questions whether the entities made their best efforts“The Protestant churches were busy fundraising aggressively because the Protestant churches all met their requirements. So from the government’s point of view, the money was coming in from the Protestants, but not the Catholics,” he said.MP Charlie Angus had one staff member working more or less full time on residential schools issues up until last year before Angus began his NDP leadership run. Working with that staff member and the MP, Kidd came up with very detailed written questions to the government in May of 2016.Given the title Q-2052, the question asked the government, among other things: “(i) how much of the $29 million in cash donations owed was given to the survivors, (ii) how much of the $25 million dollars that was supposed to be fundraised, was fundraised, and of that money how much was donated to the survivors, (iii) what was the line by line account for the $25 million of in kind donations, (iv) how much of the total compensation owed was not distributed to survivors, as it was considered an expense, legal cost, or administrative fee of the church, (v) did government lawyers negotiate with other churches in order to waive their legal obligations, and, if so, when did these negotiations occur?”When the government answered several months later, as required by Parliamentary rules, Kidd said he was not impressed.“I was extremely dissatisfied. The question was something to do with how much of the $29 million was payable to the victims and the answer was, it was never payable to the victims. It was payable to the Aboriginal Healing Foundation,” he said.He did not consider that a completely truthful response.“Just by changing the word from ‘paid’ to the Aboriginal Healing Foundation to ‘payable’ to the Aboriginal Healing Foundation, the answer became technically correct, but misleading,” he said.The government response did not include the requested detailed accounting of how the entities’ in kind commitment was fulfilled, so Kidd started combing public records.Many of the organizations involved are licensed charities and must disclose certain financial information to maintain their charitable status.“That money was paid on Jan. 11, 2016. And it appears on their 2016 audited financial statements. So I’m looking, to the best of my knowledge, he said, “The Catholic Entities paid $16,124, 340.”Some of the money originally committed was forgiven by the federal government because the church had already paid some money out in lawsuits it had lost. As the Globe originally reported, a March 2016 letter to Kidd from an Indigenous Affairs assistant deputy minister explained that “miscommunications” between government lawyers allowed the church to escape paying its commitment in total.“Although the Globe and Mail correctly reported that the results of the court case was that the Catholic Church was let off the hook for $21 million dollars. This statement tells you that there was an additional reduction to account for payments already made in separate lawsuits,” Kidd said.According to Kidd, The settlement agreement was a court-supervised agreement that was approved by Parliament.Justice Warren Winkler, the judge who ratified the agreement, warned that the federal government was in the unique position of administering an out-of-court settlement in which it had been a defendant and needed to take extreme steps to be open and transparent.“So how can the Catholic Church and the minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs do an agreement that reduces it? That’s the first thing, is the legality of it. If they’re really going to do that, they should have brought it to the attention of parliament,” Kidd asked.The best efforts campaign came up woefully short.APTN Investigates asked the government to comment on Kidd’s allegations. Rather than providing a departmental official to answer questions, the then Indigenous Affairs department provided a statement.“The settlement agreement required the Catholic Entities to pay $29 million in a cash contribution. Included in this amount was $8.4 million for Indian residential schools abuse claim compensation, which the Catholic Entities paid prior to the settlement agreement,” the statement reads. “The remaining cash contribution was divided among the Aboriginal Healing Foundation [AHF], the Legacy of Hope, the Returning to Spirit charitable organization, and the Catholic Entities’ administrative costs.“The Catholic Entities paid a total of $14.9 million to the AHF. Canada took the Catholic Entities to court over the remaining $1.6 million, which resulted in the Catholic Entities satisfying their remaining financial obligations with a $1.2 million payment to the Legacy of Hope Foundation (as the AHF had ceased operations by that point).”“In this case, the Saskatchewan supervising court determined that the Catholic Entities had met their financial obligations under the agreement.”Gérard Pettipas, the current archbishop of the Archdiocese of Grouard-McLennan in Alberta did not dispute that the entities had come up short. He was president of the group of 50 Catholic Entities up to the point where the court declared the entities had met their financial obligations.“I know all too well the shortfall of the best effort campaign to raise $25 million. I don’t where he gets this other amount,” Pettipas said.He was not able to respond in detail to Kidd’s questions or allegations.“With the termination of the [Truth and Reconciliation Commission] as a commission and with the satisfaction of our obligations, I’ve not been on top of this other than that we made provisions to stay involved because the IAP is still ongoing. So we have a lawyer to stay on top of that,” he said during an interview. “It would take a bit of research for me. It wouldn’t be in my own files.”He explained that the entities originally approached the $25 million fundraising campaign in the same way hospitals or universities fundraise for major projects like new buildings. They hired a company that specializes in those kinds of projects, in this case Toronto-based Ketchum Canada, Inc. (KCI), to run the Moving Forward Together campaign.When the donations did not meet expectations, the cost of paying KCI was consuming most of the money.“We realized as we went through that process that we were not seeing the return. The money we were taking in, little that it was, we ended up spending that on the firm,” the arch-bishop said.Pettipas was asked about the perception amongst many First Nation observers that the Catholic Church was the most reluctant of all the churches when it came to making good on residential schools abuses.“I know,” he said sadly.Asked if he disputed that observation, he qualified his response by saying it was a “personal perception” and that he was not speaking for the church.“No, a lot of what is said about the residential schools, I would say we recognize it was an idea that had gone awry. I believe that when it was entered into it was perceived to be a good idea. This was going educate Indigenous children,” he said.He revealed the long and complex relationship between the church and the federal government with his next remarks and provided a glimpse into some of the reasoning behind the church’s stand in court on residential schools.“I think the Catholic Church and the other churches were into education before treaty. We were already in missions. We had set up schools. Because this is what Christian churches do. We’re into education and healthcare. So you look at education across Canada and really around the world, a lot of it is initiated by Christian churches, he said. “In signing treaty, the federal government was taking on the responsibility to educate the children. And I think the government saw this as a very convenient way to satisfy that agreement – this treaty commitment. And for the churches I think they saw it as a way of being funded to do what they were already doing anyway. I think we got into it thinking this would always be a good thing.”But government gradually took on a bigger role, he said. How big a role has been an area of disagreement in court about liability since the days before the settlement agreement was signed.He acknowledged that past attitudes towards Indigenous peoples were not as enlightened as they could be.“I’m not sure we were as sensitive in generations past about culture as we are now. I think the TRC reports and recommendations have raised it as never before for Canada – even after the Royal Commission on Aboriginal peoples – I don’t think there was the same concern and interest and commitment on the part of people that we have now.”He responded to the allegation that other churches have been more willing to step up and take responsibility by talking about the corporate structure of his own church.“Some of the struggles in the Catholic circles is due to our structure which is very different from the Protestant churches. We didn’t have one entity. There’s no such thing as the Catholic Church in Canada. Even some of our own people find that hard to understand but it’s true,” he said. “The Catholic Church is not a monolith. It’s made up of many dioceses. And so in terms of coming together and putting forth a common voice, a common reaction, it’s not easy to do that because we’re all different. Even when I was president of the Catholic Entities, I was very aware that not every diocese, not every religious order did I represent. There were 50 Catholic entities that were part of my organization but that’s not near the number of Catholic Entities in Canada.”“There were 50 Catholic entities that were part of my organization but that’s not near the number of Catholic Entities in Canada.”Asked if the low donation rate to the best efforts campaign revealed anything about the attitudes of Catholics towards Indigenous people, Pettipas acknowledged there is still work to do.“The entities that I represented, we were onside. We tried to do what we could to make this happen. I do regret that the campaign brought in so little,” he said. “When finally this story hit the Globe and Mail, I got some interesting letters from people. There were people who were truly embarrassed by our poor showing. This one priest sent me $1,000 out of his own pocket saying ‘I am just so ashamed that we did so poorly on this.’”He said others made local donations rather than to the campaign, which affected the final numbers, but admitted there was resentment in many quarters.“I have heard people say, ‘Well they’re getting all this money from this settlement agreement, why should I give to this?’ One of the things I had to point out to people time and time again is that the monies that we give – the monies that the church was committed to – was not compensation. The government handled compensation. None of our money went to former students. Our money was all for programs for healing and reconciliation,” he said. “Originally, that $29 million was mostly destined for the Aboriginal Healing Foundation. The in kind services was for services to Indigenous communities. The [local] chief had to sign off on each one of those, that he and his council felt this service was beneficial to our community.”But there was one other reason which admitted with regret.“There is still in Canadian society a certain suspicion when it comes to our Indigenous people and money, that somehow this is going to go to them and it will be wasted . . . blah, blah, blah. I’m sure you’ve heard it. We’ve all heard it.”Kidd said he will not give up and will pursue the matter. He criticized the federal government and the Assembly of First Nations, who he says did not respond to his requests for help in getting answers.pbarnsley@aptn.calast_img read more

Kazakhstan at UN Assembly urges cooperation amid fragmented world economy

“These factors might signal the beginning of a new round of negative and damaging competition between global markets,” Erlan Idrissov told the Assembly’s annual General Debate on its third day.“The way the global community of nations will evolve in the decades to come will largely depend on our ability to cooperate and find common language,” he said.He also reaffirmed Kazakhstan’s commitment to strengthening UN peacekeeping capabilities by deploying a company-size unit to peacekeeping operations.Mr. Idrassov is among the many leaders who will address the general debate of 71st General Assembly which opened this year with the adoption of the New York Declaration as the outcome of yesterday’s first-ever UN Summit for Refugees and Migrants.

Attack on Yemeni city could overwhelm humanitarian capacity warns UN migration agency

According to the UN International Organization for Migration (IOM), there are grave fears that humanitarian capacity would be overwhelmed once Al Hudaydah port and city are attacked and relief agencies could be forced into a situation to prioritize their efforts in the war-torn country “where every single person should be a priority.” “A minimum of 400,000 people will flee the city eastwards, once Al Hudaydah is under attack [adding to] the already desperate situation of more than two million displaced people and their conflict-affected host communities,” said Mohammed Abdiker, the Director of Operations and Emergencies at IOM, in a news release today. In addition to that number, the attack will also severely hamper the UN agency’s efforts to evacuate vulnerable migrants through Al Hudaydah Port. Even without the attack, emergency response in Yemen has been facing immense challenges relating to access, financial resources and the sheer scale of humanitarian need – nearly 19 million people require assistance, more than half of them depend on it for their lives. The conflict, now into its third year, has pushed the country to the brink of famine with more than eight million facing acute shortages of clean water and sanitation. Healthcare system has virtually collapsed over half of the health facilities not functioning. Underscoring that humanitarian action, by itself, can never bring peace, IOM has been advocating that violence will only deepen the suffering of Yemeni people. “If all parties to the conflict do not come around the negotiation table to prevent further military escalation and end violence, humanitarian workers will not be able to continue to respond to increased needs, while helping those already greatly affected by the conflict,” noted Mr. Abdiker. No contingency plan will ever be able to fully respond to the scale of needs – IOMThe news release also noted the worsening humanitarian situation across the country, coupled with the unending ground fighting and air strikes, are causing major issues in reaching the most vulnerable people. Expressing concern that with the scarce resources it has received so far to help the two million displaced people and hundreds of thousands of stranded migrants, IOM warned that no contingency plan will ever be able to fully respond to the scale of needs induced by escalated and even continued fighting. At the same time, additional financial support is needed to cope with the current and projected needs. At the recent High-Level Pledging Event on Yemen, the international community pledged $1.1 billion to support the humanitarian response. But this just over half of the $2.1 billion needed for 2017. read more

Sinn Féin attacks comments linking party to paramilitarystyle shooting

first_imgUpdated, 18:47SINN FÉIN has criticised Northern Ireland’s First Minister, Peter Robinson, after the DUP leader expressed concerns about possible links between Sinn Féin and a paramilitary-style shooting in Ardoyne.Seán Kelly, who had previously been convicted of a role in the devastating Shankill bombing in 1993, was arrested and questioned in relation to the shooting of an 18-year-old male in Ardoyne on Tuesday night. He was released unconditionally this afternoon.“The family of the man who has been shot has indicated the involvement of those associated with Sinn Féin in this attack,” Robinson had said.“This connection raises potentially grave consequences for the process and we will want to meet with the Chief Constable to establish the background of this case and how the police are able to conclude that it is not paramilitary linked.We will be monitoring very closely the facts of this case as they arise and the Sinn Fein response to them.Robinson has sought a meeting with the PSNI’s Chief Constable to discuss the investigation and there have been calls for Secretary of State Theresa Villiers to revoke his early release licence, granted under the Good Friday agreement.‘Frankly ludicrous’Sinn Féin’s Martin McGuinness dismissed the DUP statements, describing the assertion the shooting could threaten the political peace process as “frankly ridiculous”.He also condemned the shooting and urged the loyalist party to “keep their nerve”.“The violence related to extreme loyalist protests in recent weeks represented a serious challenge to the political process. We in Sinn Féin kept our nerve.”North Belfast MLA Gerry Kelly welcomed Sean Kelly’s release, describing the affairs as “an example of shoddy policing”.“The only thing the PSNI told Sean Kelly was that this was an intelligence led investigation,” he said this evening following Kelly’s release.At no time during any of the interviews was any evidence either forensic, eye witness statements, anything, put before Sean Kelly to explain why he was arrested. In fact when the PSNI went to court to seek an extension of his arrest they admitted that there was no evidence whatsoever against him.He said Kelly had been released, without further questioning, less than an hour after the PSNI had been granted a further 24 hours to question him.“The PSNI created political hysteria, which some in the media and unionist politicians latched on to and exacerbated by making clearly ludicrous statements,” he said, saying the events had undermined Republican confidence in the PSNI while also showing poor political leadership among Unionists.Released under Good Friday licenceKelly was convicted and jailed for his part in the Shankill Road bomb which killed nine civilians and injured dozens more. Kelly himself was injured in the botched attack, losing an eye and the power in his right arm.He only served a couple of years of his term before being released as part of the Good Friday Agreement. However, there are still powers available to the authorities to revoke that early release.This has already happened once when Peter Hain put him back in prison in 2005 as allegations that he was involved in dissident activity were investigated.He was held for about four weeks in Maghaberry.The 18-year-old victim of Tuesday night’s shooting sustained serious leg injuries and is being treated in the Royal Victoria Hospital.Separately, two men have been arrested in Derry today on suspicion of dissident republican activity. The suspects, aged 43 and 44, have been taken to the Antrim Serious Crime Suite for questioning by detectives from the PSNI.Additional reporting by Gavan ReillyMan arrested following paramilitary style shooting in Belfastlast_img read more

Why is Vishal keeping mum on Sri Reddys remarks on his dk

first_imgActress Sri Reddy and Tamil actor VishalCollage of photos taken from Twitter and FacebookActress Sri Reddy made a series of sexual harassment allegations against and Vishal and requested people in the industry not to vote for him in the Nadigar Sangam elections. But the actor has kept mum on her charges.It should be recalled here that actor Vishal had extended his support to actor Nani when Sri Reddy made serious charges against the latter. He urged her not to take random names, but come up with solid evidence to prove her charges. She had made some nasty comment in reply to him and she had also vowed to reveal some dark secrets about him in future.Now, when Vishal is contesting elections of Nadigar Sangam, Sri Reddy is busy settling her score with an anti-campaign against him on Facebook. In a series of nasty comments, she alleged that the actor has sexually exploited several girls in his caravan and she challenged him to prove his innocence if he has guts.Sri Reddy wrote on June 15, “Vishal what is your dic. each nd every girl u used to show,nd u used to praise of ur di.. big it is can I see?? African size nd giant size.. I came to know,with that u cheated many girls I know vishal.. If u hv guts,if u didn’t cheat any girl prove that u dn hv a big ducky (sic).”The actress also called actor Vishal a fraudster. “If u smash my career I am ready,wl u kill me I am ready..still i say u r a cheat nd fraud vishal.. Wt out taking sexual commitment he wl nt work.any lady gives commitment they wl get good career through him.he wl praise on stage,” Sri Reddy posted on her Facebook page.While everyone is raving about Vishal and Karthi’s good work in the last term of Nadigar Sangam, Sri Reddy alleged that the duo’s team did not support the victims of #MeToo movement. She wrote, “Last elected nadigar sangam didn’t help to ME TOO VICTIMS.bhagya raj sir’s group has to win this time..we all of our victims get some justice. If u vote to vishal your vote get wasted..give respect to your vote..”Days after the cancellation of the elections, Vishal and team were successful in getting the ban revoked against Nadigar Sangam Election, which are held St Ebba’s School, Radhakrishnan Road, Mylapore between 7.00 AM and 5.00 PM today (June 23). Sri Reddy took to her Facebook page to urge voters and wrote, “All artists what I request is dont vote for vishal’s fraud for bhagya raj sir’s team..”While all this is happening, Vishal has not made a single comment on her allegations. He is active on social media and many of his followers asking him to respond to her, but he has kept mum on the issue, which has come as big surprise to many of his fans and colleagues in the south Indian film industry, who apparently started doubting about his misdeeds.Why is Vishal no responding to Sri Reddy’s charges? Well! Firstly, the actor is very busy with election campaign, he might not have got time to look in to her allegations. Secondly, even if he is aware of it, he might have ignored her, thinking that her charges might affect the election results. Thirdly, he might respond to the actress after the election results. However, only time will tell us about his silence.last_img read more

Son kills Bangladeshi parents sister among 4 in Canada

Just How Available Is Mortgage Credit

first_imgJust How Available Is Mortgage Credit? applications Borrowers conventional loans Credit Scores GOvernment Loans loans mortgage Urban Institute 2018-07-30 Radhika Ojha Share July 30, 2018 526 Views center_img Mortgage credit access is expanding but remains restrictive compared to pre-crisis days, as reported in the most recent Housing Credit Availability Index from the Urban Institute. However, the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) data for 2017 revealed a denial rate of 11 percent in 2017, down from 18 percent in 2006 before the housing crisis, which according to the Urban Institute “runs counter to our expectations.” So just how easy is it to get a mortgage these days, and who are getting mortgages? The Urban Institute set out to answer these questions in a report titled, “Real Denial Rates: A Better Way to Look at Who Is Receiving Mortgage Credit.”The report revealed three significant findings: First, conventional mortgages have higher real denial rates than government mortgages; second, disparities in denial rates among different races and ethnicities are inflated in most reporting; and third, denial rates are noticeably higher for smaller mortgage loans. Urban Institute researchers started with the premise that, “If denial rates were a good measure of credit availability, it would suggest that credit was tighter in 2007 than it has been in recent years, which we know is not the case.” To more accurately assess credit availability, the Urban Institute limited its observation of loan denial rates to only those applicants with low credit profiles. The researchers found that there were far fewer low-credit-profile applicants today than before the housing crisis. Controlling for this difference, the report found the denial rate between 2011 and 2017 was 36 percent, similar to the 37 percent between 1998 and 2004.Comparing different loan channels, HMDA data would imply that government channels had a lower denial rate before the financial crisis but a higher denial rate today. Once again, the report limited its observation to just low-credit-profile applicants to offer a clearer picture. The researchers explained that after the financial crisis, conventional loan channels engaged in risk-based pricing deterred many low-credit-profile applicants. Government channels, on the other hand, do not participate in risk-based pricing and continue to attract applicants with lower credit profiles. Well before the financial crisis, in 1998, low-credit-profile applicants accounted for 57 percent of government loan applicants and 44 percent of conventional loan applicants, the report indicated. Today, the government’s share of low-credit-profile applicants is still a little more than half, 52 percent, while the percentage of low-profile-credit applicants in the conventional market has dropped to just 20 percent. With far fewer low-credit-profile applicants, the conventional market has fewer borrowers to deny. When it comes to racial and ethnic disparities, the report found that while they do exist, they are not as prevalent as a first glance at the data would suggest. The traditional denial rate for 2017 reveals a rate twice as high for black applicants, 1.4 times higher for Hispanic applicants, and 1.2 times higher for Asian applicants than for white applicants. This has led to allegations of redlining, which the research says “is a gross oversimplification.” Instead, “the differences in denial rates across groups primarily reflect differences in credit characteristics,” the researchers reported. When controlling for credit characteristics, the report concluded the denial rate for black applicants is 1.2 times higher rather than twice as high. For Hispanic applicants, the denial rate is 1.1 times higher, and for Asian applicants, the denial rate is 1.4 times higher. The researchers suggested the higher denial rate for Asian applicants may be because “Asians frequent the conventional channel more than other groups, and the conventional channel has higher denial rates.” Lastly, while raw HMDA data appears to exaggerate racial disparities, it seems to understate the difference in the denial rate between large- and small-dollar loans. HMDA data revealed an 18 percent denial rate for small-dollar loans. However, because there is not a sharp difference in the makeup of applicants across different dollar-sizes of loans when comparing just low-credit-profile applicants, the report found a 52 percent denial rate for loans up to $70,000 and a 29 percent denial rate for loans more than $150,000. in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Originationlast_img read more

semi-final of the Indian Super League (ISL) at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here on Tuesday as they look to join Bengaluru FC in the final In the first leg in Fatorda Goa and Chennaiyin played out a

when they face FC Goa in the second leg of semi-finals in Chennai Image Courtesy: ISL However Chennaiyin chief coach John Gregory said that they will not be complacent over the "minimal advantage" "It was a hard-earned draw for us Goa play their passing possession-based football and as opponents we worked hard to get the ball back The away goal we got is a minimal advantage If tomorrow the game finishes 0-0 we are through" Gregory said at the pre-match press conference "But we know that this is football – anything can happen Several permutations can come up during the match and we are prepared for it We both know each other’s game We are fired up and ready to go" Gregory said that right-back Inigo Calderon who picked up an injury to his right calf will be fit for the clash "He is a tough guy He got a tough tackle which injured his right calf but he continued to play on and he will be ready tomorrow" the coach said Calderon will complete the back-four of Mailson Alves Henrique

with Pronay Halder has proved his value to the side with some astonishing performances from midfield alongside Ahmed Jahouh It will be a toss-up between Edu Bedia and Hugo for the attacking midfield role Brandon Fernandes is also back from injury and Lobera will have a selection headache as he will have to choose either Mandar Rao Dessai or Brandon to occupy one wing while Manuel Lanzarote looks certain to start on the other flank Lanzarote (13 goals) and Ferran Corominas (18 goals) are the tournament’s deadliest attacking pair and Goa will need them again to go through Even if Chennaiyin have the away-goal advantage Lobera is not reading too much into it and believes his wards will pull it off "We are facing a tough team (But) we need to play the way we have done so far in the tournament We are the highest scoring team in the competition and we have the highest scoring players as well" he said "The style of football we employ definitely puts us at a risk of conceding but at the other end we are capable of scoring against any team I would definitely take another 3-2 victory over here in Chennai like we did on the first match day (during the league phase)" Going back to the history of the season in the league stage both teams have defeated each other once In the first leg Goa edged past Chennaiyin 3-2 and in the return leg Chennaiyin beat Goa 1-0 Sergio Juste and

what has largely been a fantastic campaign for the side and he will walk back into the team Narayan Das looks likely to start at left back With inputs from IANS By Steve Holland and Roberta Rampton WASHINGTON (Reuters) – US President Donald Trump’s physician Ronny Jackson on Thursday withdrew from consideration to head the Veterans Affairs department after allegations that he had been lax with prescription drugs and drank alcohol on the job The allegations which Jackson categorically denied as false had prompted the Senate to put a hold on his hearing for the job of leading the federal government’s second largest department The upset was the latest chaotic personnel decision to rock Trump’s White House which has been roiled by an unusually high number of firings and resignations During his campaign Trump had pledged to clean up the VA which oversees healthcare and benefits for about 20 million military veterans a constituency with considerable political clout The agency has long been criticized for the quality of its care and the red tape that veterans encounter Trump fired his first secretary David Shulkin in March after concerns about unauthorised travel expenses Jackson 50 was a surprising pick for the job and even Trump acknowledged he lacked experience running large organizations House Speaker Paul Ryan said the allegations warranted further review "Whether or not there’s merit to these allegations we should find if there’s merit to these allegations and if there are then the proper oversight should be done" Ryan a Republican told reporters On Thursday Trump lashed out about the uproar in a phone interview with Fox News blaming Democrats who had compiled a list of complaints about Jackson from military medical officials who had worked with him "He would have done a great job" Trump said of Jackson "These are all false accusations They’re trying to destroy a man" Trump singled out Senator Jon Tester the top-ranking Democrat on the Senate Veterans’ Affairs committee who is up for re-election in November in Montana saying Tester "has to have a big price to pay in Montana" NEW CANDIDATE IN MIND Trump who was set to host a group of veterans at the White House on Thursday said he has a new candidate with "political capabilities" for the job but did not announce his pick Jackson is a US Navy rear admiral who has been physician to three presidents Democrats said more than 20 people whose names they withheld said Jackson had prescribed himself medications got drunk at a Secret Service party wrecked a government vehicle and once could not be reached on a work trip to provide medical treatment because he was passed out drunk in a hotel room Tester had said Jackson’s nickname was "the candyman" because of his willingness to hand out prescription drugs He urged Congress to continue its investigation into the White House medical office Presidential press secretary Sarah Sanders said Jackson was on the job at the White House on Thursday but White House officials declined to immediately make clear whether he would remain as the top White House physician Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer blamed the White House for being "sloppy and careless" in vetting its candidate and said senators were obligated to pursue the complaints from military officials One veterans’ group Concerned Veterans for America said in a statement that the White House should take its time to vet a new nominee for the VA job Jackson has worked as a presidential physician since the George W Bush administration and has been the lead doctor for Trump as well as former President Barack Obama He is well-liked by both Republican and Democratic administration officials "The allegations against me are completely false and fabricated" Jackson said in a statement on Thursday "Unfortunately because of how Washington works these false allegations have become a distraction for this president and the important issue we must be addressing – how we give the best care to our nation’s heroes" Jackson said The Iraq war veteran took on a higher profile when he gave a long and glowing account of Trump’s health at news conference in January after his first presidential medical exam saying Trump had "incredibly good genes" Jackson’s qualifications to lead the sprawling Veterans Affairs department were questioned from the time Trump nominated him in late March The agency has 350000 employees and runs 1700 facilities that serve more than 9 million veterans a year (Reporting by Steve Holland and Roberta Rampton; Additional
