VANCOUVER: A senior Chinese telecom executive whose arrest in Canada on a US warrant triggered a diplomatic row between Ottawa and Beijing appeared in court on Wednesday (May 8) to fight for her release.Canada's justice department said the court was to set the next key dates in an extradition process - including the start of the formal hearing for Meng Wanzhou, which could take months or even years.Meng herself had been expected to make only a brief appearance before the judge to deal with matters described by officials as "administrative in nature."But defense lawyers took several hours to renew their objections to her arrest in Vancouver in December while seeking a variation of her bail terms that would allow her to move to a larger residence in Vancouver for the duration of the case.The prosecution, meanwhile, indicated that it wished to fast-track the proceedings.But haggling over the disclosure of evidence - with the defense lamenting heavy redactions of 1,742 pages of … [Read more...] about Huawei executive facing extradition appears in Canada court

Canada will see more than six dozen containers of Canadian household trash returned to its Port of Vancouver soon from the Philippines, the media reported. Canada made a formal offer earlier this week to have the containers returned to the Canadian port, Xinhua reported on Friday citing the CTV. The containers arrived in a port near Manila in 2013 and 2014 labelled as plastics for recycling, and have sat in limbo ever since while the two countries disagreed about how they should be disposed of. However, Manila found that the containers contained only about one-third plastics that could be recycled. The rest was mostly household garbage and electronic waste. It said the shipments were a violation of the Basel Convention, an international treaty forbidding developed nations to dump their waste on the developing world. The Canadian offer came around the same time as the Philippines ordered its Bureau of Customs to get the containers back on a ship bound for Canada no later than May 15.

By Tara Deschamps Special to the Star Mon., April 29, 2019 New European rules that will make tech firms liable for copyright violations on their platforms have been both lauded by musicians and artists and lambasted by those who champion intellectual freedom. But one thing that’s not in dispute is that similar rules won’t be coming to Canada any time soon, experts say. The copyright directive, endorsed by 19 European countries in mid-April, will compel companies such as Google and Facebook to ensure copyrighted content — everything from music and films to news and books — isn’t posted on their platforms without a creator’s permission. Some tech firms may have to acquire licences to host such material. The EU’s 28 member states now have two years to adopt the rules and create their own policies. The reforms have been touted as a way to rein in powerful tech firms and restore revenues to creative industries, often paid fractions … [Read more...] about Canada likely won’t copycat EU copyright rules, experts say.

MAYNILA- Kinalampag ng grupong EcoWaste Coalition ang Embahada ng Canada dito nitong Lunes upang igiit na dapat nang kunin ng bansa ang basurang itinambak nito sa Pilipinas higit 5 taon na ang nakalilipas. Bitbit ang mga placard, iginiit ng grupo na hindi katanggap-tanggap ang pagtatambak ng Canada ng basura sa Pilipinas. Nauna nang binalaan ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte ang Canada na kunin ang mahigit sa 100 container ng basurang itinambak nito kung hindi ay posibleng magdeklara ng giyera ang Pilipinas. "Ang salita ng ating Presidente ay sumasalamin kung gaano ka-urgent, gaano kaseryoso na dapat nang kunin ang mga basurang ito. Hindi na ito dapat nagtatagal pa sa Pilipinas," ani Aileen Locero, national coordinator ng EcoWaste Coalition. Siniguro naman ng Embahada ng Canada noong nakaraang linggo na nakikipag-ugnayan ito sa pamahalaan ng Pilipinas upang maresolba ang problema sa basura. -ulat ni Henry Atuelan, ABS-CBN News Bisitahin ang Patrol.PH para sa iba pang mga balita. … [Read more...] about News ‘Hindi tapunan’: Embahada ng Canada kinalampag ng EcoWaste Coalition
