Homeless man taken down last week by police has been charged

Posted on by Mike Hellinger

Homleless advocates in Abbotsford aren’t pleased with the city….again.
A 57 yr old homeless man who was taken down by police last week with rubber bullets and a bean bag gun has now been charged. Police were called out last Wednesday to the Food Bank on Essendene to reports of a distraught man waving a knife and yelling. Cbl. Ian Macdonald said it was a dangerous situation and they did what they felt they had to do. But in the days since, Ward Draper with 5 and 2 Ministries says the city ordered someone to clean up the space, but it was someone with no knowledge of the homeless community and they instead of just clearing out garbage..they ended up getting rid of everything while Roberts was in the hospital…his bedding, his tarps and his tools.
Draper says the city once again has failed to protect the broken.
Roberts is scheduled for a bail hearing tomorrow.

People magazine’s ’50 most Beautiful People’ issue, which hits newstands this Friday, will carry award-winning Kenyan-Mexican actress, film and music video director Lupita Nyong’o on the cover, according to an announcement made on the Today Show on American television. The magazine, which has the largest audience of any American magazine, ran its first issue on March 4, 1974 and has created a name for its special year issues which include “World’s Most Beautiful People”, “Best & Worst Dressed”, and “Sexiest Man Alive”. The magazine’s ’100 Most Beautiful People’ is an annual list of 100 people judged to be the most beautiful individuals in the world. The magazine started the list in 1990 and so far 26 people, both men and women, have featured on the list. The “World’s Most Beautiful Person” usually graces the cover and this was the case for Lupita, making her the third black woman (after actress Halle Berry and singer Beyonce Knowles) to hold the title and grace the cover. She was recently awarded the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, becoming the sixth black actress to win the award,

Stage One of BCTF job action begins today

Posted on by Mike Hellinger

BCTFAbout 41 thousand public-school teachers in BC are beginning job action this morning.
Their contracts expired last June, and the BC Teachers Federation says it’s being forced to take action because negotiations are slow.
Union president Jim Iker says teachers will refuse to supervise students outside the classroom or communicate in writing with principals and other administrators.
He won’t say how long the initial phase will last, but says the lack of progress at the bargaining table will lead to rotating strikes across the province, with 48 hours’ notice.
