2016 census highlights Indigenous Peoples immigration and housing

first_imgOTTAWA – Statistics Canada released the latest findings from the 2016 census Tuesday, this time focusing on Indigenous Peoples, immigration and housing. Some selected highlights:— The census counted 1.67 million Indigenous people in Canada in 2016, accounting for 4.9 per cent of the total population — up from 3.8 per cent in 2006 for a growth rate of 42.5 per cent over the last 10 years, four times the rate of the non-Indigenous population.— The average age of the Indigenous population was 32.1 years, nearly a decade younger than the non-Indigenous population at 40.9 years. The census counted 145,645 children aged 0-4, 8.7 per cent of Aboriginal people in Canada.— One in five Indigenous people in Canada is living in a dwelling that needs “major repairs,” while one in 10 lives in a household that has a space shortfall of at least one bedroom.— However, 7.3 per cent of Indigenous people in Canada are 65 or older, compared with 4.8 per cent in 2006 — and that proportion could double by the year 2036.— The census counted 145,645 Indigenous children aged 0-4 in 2016.— The number of people who identified as First Nations reached 979,230 last year, up 39.3 per cent over 2006, while the Metis population grew by 51.2 per cent over the same period to 587,545 people. The census recorded 65,025 Inuit, 29.1 per cent higher than in 2006.— Winnipeg (92,810), Edmonton (76,205), Vancouver (61,460) and Toronto (46,315) reported the largest Indigenous populations, while the highest proportion of Aboriginal people were in Thunder Bay (12.7 per cent), Winnipeg (12.2 per cent) and Saskatoon (10.9 per cent).— In 2016, 7.5 million people — about 21.9 per cent of the total population — reported being foreign-born individuals who immigrated to Canada. In 1921, the census reported that proportion at 22.3 per cent, the highest since Confederation. Statistics Canada projects that proportion could reach between 25 and 30 per cent by 2036.— The census counted 1,212,075 new immigrants who permanently settled in Canada between 2011 and 2016, 3.5 per cent of the total population last year.— 60 per cent entered under the economic category, 26.8 per cent to join family already in Canada and 11.6 per cent as refugees. During the first four months of 2016, refugees accounted for one-quarter of all immigrants admitted to Canada, thanks to an influx of refugees from Syria.— Asia, including the Middle East, remains the largest source of recent immigrants to Canada at 61.8 per cent, followed by Africa at 13.4 per cent. Europe — once dominant in this category at 61.6 per cent in 1971 — ranked third at 11.6 per cent.— More immigrants have been settling in the Prairies. The percentage of new immigrants living in Alberta reached 17.1 per cent in 2016, compared with 6.9 per cent in 2001; In Manitoba, it went to 5.2 per cent, up from 1.8 per cent, and four per cent in Saskatchewan, up from one per cent in 2001.— Visible minorities numbered 7.7 million in 2016, 22.3 per cent of Canada’s population. 30 per cent were born in Canada.— In 1921, more than 70 per cent of the foreign-born population reported English or French as a mother tongue, while fewer than 30 per cent reported a different language. In 2016, the precise opposite was true: more than 70 per cent reported a different mother tongue, compared to less than 30 per cent for English or French.— In 2016, nearly 2.2 million children under 15 — 37.5 per cent of all children in Canada — were either foreign-born themselves or had at least one foreign-born parent.— Some 1.9 million people reported being of South Asian heritage, fully one-quarter of the visible minority population. Chinese was the second-largest group at 1.6 million or 20.5 per cent of visible minorities, while blacks — surpassing the one-million mark for the first time — were third at 1.2 million, a share of about 15.6 per cent. Filipinos and Arabs rounded out the top five.— More than 9.5 million of the 14.1 million households in Canada owned their home in 2016, a rate of 67.8 per cent, down slightly from 69 per cent in 2011. However, rates varied widely depending on age: 70 per cent of homeowners in 2016 were aged 35-54, compared with 20- to 34-year-olds at just 43.6 per cent.— Nearly 1.9 million households — about 13.3 per cent — were living in condominiums in 2016, up 1.1 percentage points from 2011. Of those, about 67 per cent were owners, the rest renters.— Condos are most popular in Vancouver, where they comprised 30.6 per cent of all local households. Calgary was second at 21.8 per cent, followed by Abbotsford-Mission, B.C., at 21.5 per cent, Kelowna at 21.3 per cent and Toronto at 20.9 per cent.— In 2016, 24.1 per cent of households — down from 24.4 per cent in 2006 — were spending 30 per cent or more of their average monthly total income on shelter costs, such as rent or mortgage payments, electricity, heat and property taxes or fees. Of those, the highest proportions were in Toronto (33.4 per cent) and Vancouver (32 per cent).— Vancouver homeowners reported an average dwelling value of $1,005,920, compared to $734,924 in Toronto and $366,974 in Montreal. Across the country, the average value was $443,058, compared to $345,182 in 2011, not accounting for inflation.last_img read more

Globe: PMO pressured justice minister to help SNC-Lavalin avoid prosecution

OTTAWA — The Globe and Mail says former justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould disappointed the Prime Minister’s Office by refusing to help SNC-Lavalin avoid a criminal prosecution.The Quebec engineering and construction giant has been facing legal trouble over allegations it paid millions of dollars in bribes to get government business in Libya, which would be a crime under Canadian law.As justice minister, Wilson-Raybould could have gotten involved in the case against the company by directing federal prosecutors to negotiate a “remediation agreement,” a way of undoing damage without admitting the company itself was at fault for things particular employees did.The Globe reports that SNC-Lavalin repeatedly lobbied Justin Trudeau’s aides for a deal and Trudeau’s office leaned on Wilson-Raybould to make it happen.No such agreement was ever reached and Wilson-Raybould was moved to be minister of veterans affairs in a January cabinet shuffle.Neither Trudeau nor Wilson-Raybould nor SNC-Lavalin has immediately responded to questions from The Canadian Press about the story.The Canadian Press read more

DR Congo UN mission supporting security planning for upcoming peace talks

In a news release, the mission – known by its French acronym MONUC – said it has transported several battalions of the national army (FARDC) to North Kivu in the past week to ensure the security of the peace conference, set to begin on 6 January in the provincial capital of Goma. “As a component of the planning of security related to the organization of the Goma conference, FARDC battalions were transported by helicopter to improve the defence of Masisi and Katale,” said interim MONUC military spokesperson Colonel Samba Tall. Last week, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expressed his hope that the summit will help end a conflict that has caused tremendous suffering and has displaced of hundreds of thousands of innocent people. Fighting has escalated in recent months between Government troops and rebels allied with the dissident army general, Laurent Nkunda, forcing hundreds of thousands of civilians to flee their homes in North Kivu. The UN refugee agency estimates that over the last year, a mix of conflict, military build-up and spiralling lawlessness has displaced 400,000 people in North Kivu – the worst displacement since the end of the civil war in 2003. In total, there are an estimated 800,000 displaced people in the province, including those uprooted by previous conflicts. MONUC also reported the surrender of Nkunda dissidents at the mission’s bases, in spite of periodic skirmishes between various groups. Several of those that surrendered were sent to brassage, Colonel Tall stated, referring to the process by which ex-fighters from armed groups are retrained to form part of the integrated brigades of the FARDC. Ten combatants with the Ituri Patriotic Resistance Front who surrendered in Bavi were also sent to brassage. MONUC added that it has intensified its joint patrols with FARDC in South Kivu in an effort to improve security and aid humanitarian efforts in the province. 3 January 2008The United Nations peacekeeping mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is supporting the Government in security preparations for an upcoming conference aimed at bringing peace and development to the troubled eastern region of the vast African nation. read more

Ohio State mens volleyball coach Pete Hanson Libero the quarterback on volleyball

Freshman libero Gabriel Domecus (7) attempts to hit the ball during a match against Saint Francis Feb. 9 at St. John Arena. OSU won, 3-1.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorThey’re often the first player to touch the ball when it enters their side of the court. They lead the defense every match while having top-of-the-line passing skills.Those are just some aspects of play that go into fulfilling the role as a libero on the volleyball court.Men’s volleyball consists of six players on each side of the court, and one position in particular stands out from the rest.“We wear a different color jersey and we are not allowed to play front row. Unfortunately, we don’t get to hit the ball or serve,” senior libero Danny Baker said.This specific player is called the libero, and can be defined as the rearmost roaming defensive player in volleyball, however coach Pete Hanson said the primary skill coaches are looking for in a libero is their passing ability.“The digging skill is very important, but recently we have looked at this position as more as an asset to the offense,” Hanson said.Hanson said a successful libero is similar to the “quarterback” role of volleyball and takes ownership of the back row. Along with excelling in particular athletic skills, this player also must portray many key personality traits.“You are looking for someone who is aggressive, confident, communicative and a take-charge kind of a player, and that is what we try to tell our guys who are playing that position,” Hanson said.A libero is considered to be a defensive and passing specialist that can sub for any player in the back row at any time during the match.“The main job of my position is to be the defensive leader on the court. It’s the libero’s job to cover as much of the court as possible when the opposing team plays it back to our side,” freshman libero Gabriel Domecus said.Because of the fast-paced nature of volleyball, these players need to have skill on offense and defense and the libero is in charge of communicating with the team and making sure every player is in place and on their toes, ready for whatever is going to happen next.“Our main job is to take control of the defense and passing. We need to communicate before, during and after each play to make sure everyone is on the same page,” Baker said.Next up, OSU is scheduled to take part in a weekend series against Grand Canyon Friday and Saturday at St. John Arena. Both matches are set for 7 p.m. read more

Hackers steal US153m from Mexico financial system

MEXICO CITY, Mexico (AFP) — Hackers who targeted Mexico’s interbank payment system made off with more than US$15 million in the past several weeks, the Bank of Mexico said Wednesday.The amount of funds involved in the irregular activity totalled “approximately 300 million pesos (US$15.3 million),” central bank governor Alejandro Diaz de Leon told reporters.He said commercial bank customers’ accounts were never in danger.An investigation is under way, the governor said, without indicating if the suspected hackers were domestic or international.The interbank payments system allows banks to make real-time transfers to each other.They connect via their own computer systems or an external provider — the point where the attacks appear to have taken place, Lorenza Martinez, director general of the corporate payments and services system at the central bank, said on Monday.Martinez revealed that at least five attacks had occurred but, at that time, said the amount taken was still being analysed.After the attacks were detected, banks switched to a slower but more secure method.

Marcelino unsatisfied with Valencias 21 win

first_imgValencia boss Marcelino Garcia Toral was left to rue his side’s lack of clinical edge in front of goal after narrowly beating bottom side SD Huesca 2-1On the back of drawing for the 10th time in only 16 games at SD Eibar last weekend, Valencia got off to a bright start at the Mestalla against Huesca.Captain Dani Parejo put Los Che in front, after some great play with Denis Cheryshev and Rodrigo Moreno, before Santi Mina was denied adding a second by Huesca keeper Roberto Santamaría.After Carlos Soler was denied by Santamaría in the second-half, Huesca were awarded a penalty after Cucho Hernandez was pulled in the area.The Colombian forward then stepped up to slot the penalty-kick home to even the scoreline at 1-1.However, a stoppage-time winner from Italian defender Cristiano Piccini secured Valencia a fourth win in La Liga this season.FC Barcelona, Valencia CFMatch Preview: Barcelona vs Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Is derby time in La Liga, as Barcelona welcomes Valencia to the Camp Nou Stadium tonight at 21:00 (CET).“It’s a result that doesn’t give us much; we’ve drawn ten games in which we deserved much better results,” Marcelino told the club website.“In Eibar, we deserved to win. This result compensates for one of the many draws that we’ve had.“We hope that this win helps boost our belief in ourselves. We’re a competitive team who have played as equals against big sides.“However, we have had -and still have- a serious problem, which is our lack of goals.“We have to work on this. I’m optimistic and I think that this situation is going to be turned around.”Valencia have now broken into the top-10 of La Liga and will next take on Deportivo Alaves on January 5.last_img read more

Neighborhood feud escalates after a recent dog attack in Santee

first_imgSANTEE (KUSI) — It’s one of the most horrifying things you’ll ever see.  A German shepherd and a pit bull ripping each other apart. It’s nasty enough to see this kind of thing once.  But twice?  Brutal.“I witnessed by neighbors dog getting attacked by the pit bull, locked on his neck,” said George Scott of Santee.The same thing happened with the same dogs two years ago.The latest drama began when Mike Clinger was playing baseball with his son in their front yard.  Suddenly, a bicycle rider and his pit bull stopped in front of the house, for some reason.“He stopped and started doing something.  No reason to stop except to cause trouble,” said Mike Clinger, owner of the German shepherd named Zuess.And trouble it was.  Clinger’s German shepherd heard the pit bull outside and darted out the front door for a nasty battle.  Both dogs needed medical help and so did the owner of the German shepherd.“He attacked me, he started punching me and kicking my dog.  Then he threw an aerosol can at my chest,” Clinger said.The Clingers don’t deny fault.  They admit that they should have locked the door to keep Zuess inside.  But they didn’t.“I would have paid for their vet bill, I know we were in the wrong, but after he assaulted me, I’m done with it,” Clinger said.Instead, the Clinger family has filed assault charges against the owner of the pit bull who attacked him.  They also want a restraining order to keep him away from their home and family.“I am shaken, Elise Clinger said.  “He’s putting up hundreds of flyers with our address, saying we have a killer dog.  Our kids walk to school every day and see these flyers.  I’m worried about this man.”Making matters even uglier.  The owner of the pit bull has been calling the city and blowing the whistle on “code violations” around his neighborhood.  The Clinger family was forced to take down a small home office in their garage and lay down rocks under their jets skis after the complaints were filed.“This man is a terrorist,” Clinger said. “The guy rides by our house three times a day, taunting and trying to get our dog to react.”The Sheriff’s Department has the case, but it does not appear to be urgent.  As for the Clinger family.“He’s basically disrupted our lives, we can’t do the things we normally do.  I feel like law enforcement needs to help,” Elise said.As for the owner of the pit bull?  He appears to be unapologetic and aggressive. “I’m not done yet”, he told me over the phone.  He’s referring to harassing his neighbors about “code violations.”As for the dogs, both will survive after receiving medical care.  Stay tuned.

Because sensible reform is needed to ensure school safety. #GunReform pic.twitter.com/RhseWZ7lLy— Sylvester Turner (@SylvesterTurner) April 20, 2018 As for the future of the student movement in Houston, Margolin detailed that one of the “initial ideas” is creating a non-profit organization “to keep this going.”“We’re going to keep raising money and keep holding some events that may or may not be other walkouts,” added the organizer, who also commented they will help students who are eligible to register as voters.Our March and walkout may be over, but our fight or our movement hasn’t. #HYW #HoustonYouthWalkout pic.twitter.com/8r26FBOlct— 🅡🅨🅐🅝 (@mtz_Ryan_) April 20, 2018 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Share X Almost there..
