What position will the city take at the upcoming Ontario Lands Tribunal hearing on the proposed development at 16 Ormond Street South? With the July 5 court date fast approaching, some local residents fear the city will not support their fight against the six-story apartment project.

As ThoroldToday First reported, developer Shane Webber is proposing a 40-unit apartment complex at 16 Ormond St S., but some of the surrounding residents feel the project doesn’t fit their neighborhood.

The proposal was presented to the Thorold Committee of Adjustment in March, where a decision was deferred because committee members felt they did not have enough information, particularly regarding parking in the area.

In response, the proponent appealed to the Ontario Lands Tribunal (OLT). Thorold Town Council has instructed Town Hall to hire a solicitor and planner to represent the town at the hearing, but much remains unclear.

“Are they going to be for or against some of these waiver requests? asks Ormond Street resident Tim O’Hare in an interview with ThoroldToday. “Is it going to matter to me whether or not I join the city, or are we going to go it alone and fight for our cause without the support of the city?”

“It was great that the board members all voted in favor of this and they’re behind us, there’s no doubt about it,” O’Hare continued. “If they were the ones coming to the OLT, that would be a whole different story, but that’s not the case.”

The crux of the matter, according to O’Hare, is that in its initial report, Thorold’s planning department approved four of the five waiver requests, vetoing only the reduction of the building’s setback.

Three months have passed since then, and Thorold’s planning department has lost all of its employees, leading O’Hare to question whether the original planning report still matches the city’s current position.

O’Hare points out that among the initially approved deviations is the removal of the building’s loading area.

“No cargo space, that’s crazy,” he says. “You’re going to have so many apartments, no cargo space and park across the street, as the planner suggested at the time, and haul your stuff across the busy street of ‘Ormond?’

O’Hare has tried several times to reach out to the city for clarification on what will happen at the July 5 hearing, but still hasn’t heard back.

“The timeframe is incredibly short,” says O’Hare. “Even though it looks like we have a little time, all the documents have to be submitted much earlier, otherwise they cannot be put on file. I just need to know which direction the legal advisor and the planners are going to take.“

The only good thing that came out of the ordeal is that O’Hare is much closer to his neighbors. A petition circulating in the neighborhood has already garnered more than 150 signatures against the development.

“It’s surprisingly exciting to meet people, talk to them and discuss it,” he says. “Ninety percent of people argue that this design doesn’t fit the lot. With that obviously comes the parking overflow. That’s why downtown businesses are on our side. If we want a viable and thriving downtown, we need to make sure parking isn’t a problem and it doesn’t get worse.

When contacted for comment, the office of City Manager Manoj Dilwaria issued the following statement: “City staff are working with outside legal counsel on this matter. At this time, we are unable to share anything else.

Miami-Dade officer makes chilling claim during traffic stop https://serversunderthesun.com/miami-dade-officer-makes-chilling-claim-during-traffic-stop/ Mon, 20 Jun 2022 22:07:41 +0000 https://serversunderthesun.com/miami-dade-officer-makes-chilling-claim-during-traffic-stop/

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Florida. – A video circulating on social media shows the comments of a Miami-Dade police officer to a man during a traffic stop.

The stop took a threatening turn for the driver on his way to work.

“Give me your driver’s license, registration and insurance,” the officer says in the video. “Otherwise you won’t go to work today.”

The MDPD officer then made a very bold statement to the man.

“Simple thing man. This is how you get killed here, man,” the officer said.

The driver is Gerardson Nicolas, 29 years old. He was arrested for not wearing a seatbelt.

Nicolas says he feared for his life at the time.

“I can’t stop thinking about it. Still to this day, I can’t,” Nicolas said.

The incident happened around 8 a.m. Wednesday on northeast 159th Street and 18th Avenue.

The very real and raw video quickly went viral on social media.

What we don’t see in the video, according to Nicolas, is the officer snatching the keys from his ignition.

The video clearly shows him going through his wallet and calmly handing something to the officer.

Nicolas says he is still traumatized by the officer’s statement and the whole encounter.

I followed orders, stopped and he got aggressive hitting me with the door, that’s not right,” he said.

Miami-Dade police said they are aware of the video and are currently reviewing body camera footage, saying in a statement:

“The officer’s patrol duty has been replaced with administrative office duties pending a full investigation into the officer’s traffic stop, comments and conduct.”

Los Angeles City Council passes motion to improve hate crime reporting – NBC Los Angeles https://serversunderthesun.com/los-angeles-city-council-passes-motion-to-improve-hate-crime-reporting-nbc-los-angeles/ Sun, 19 Jun 2022 04:43:14 +0000 https://serversunderthesun.com/los-angeles-city-council-passes-motion-to-improve-hate-crime-reporting-nbc-los-angeles/

LA City Council on Friday passed a motion to improve the city’s systems for people who must report hate crimes, citing a disparity between the number of such crimes reported to law enforcement and the number reported to the non-profit organization Stop AAPI Hate.

The effort was led by Councilwoman Nithya Raman, who introduced a motion passed in November for the Department of Civil + Human Rights and Equity and the Information Technology Agency to report on ways to improve access to report hate incidents, including through a dedicated mobile app or the My311LA app.

As a result of the report, City Council voted Friday for the City Administrative Officer to identify funding to build capacity for 311 staff to include providing trauma-informed training for staff. of 311 addressing hate reporting calls, as well as funding opportunities to support improvements in hate reporting, address the needs of victims of hate crimes, improve the effectiveness of bystander interventions, and support research partnerships to study the feasibility of a reporting application.

“I am very committed to this work: the sharp increase in hate crimes in Los Angeles requires informed policy decisions and broad mitigation strategies. But it is difficult to move forward without more reporting and better data that allows us to understand hate crime trends,” Raman said in a statement Friday. “Implementing the recommendations in this report will help us take the next steps in our city and help us develop culturally appropriate responses, including increasing investments in hate crime responses that go beyond of law enforcement alone.”

The motion also directed the Department of Civil and Human Rights and Equity, the Information Technology Agency, and the Los Angeles Police Department to provide quarterly progress reports on the implementation implementation of expanded reporting scopes and the integration of hate reporting data.

“Hate cannot have a home in Los Angeles. I am so grateful to leaders like Council Member Raman for working to protect our most vulnerable and ensure that
Los Angeles is a national leader in hate prevention,” said Capri Maddox, executive director of the LA Department of Civil Rights. “Today’s vote will allow us to better track and respond to hate crimes, as well as develop models for hate intervention and prevention. It’s just one way to build an LA for everyone.”

Raman said in November that although the Los Angeles Police Department records hate crimes and hate incidents, comparison data from nonprofits shows a huge reporting gap.

“That means the LAPD numbers are likely a drastic undercount, and it’s preventing us from developing better policy, it’s preventing us from making resources available that can actually target hate crimes,” Raman said in a statement. november.

Reported violent crimes against Asian Americans doubled between 2015 and 2018 nationally, and the LAPD reported an increase in LA in 2020, when 15 hate crimes were reported against the Pacific Islander community Asian Americans, up from seven in 2019. In 2020, the city had a total of 24 hate incidents and hate crimes reported against Asian Americans.

Meanwhile, the nonprofit organization Stop AAPI Hate reported 245 hate crimes and hate incidents in Los Angeles County in just seven months of 2020, from March 19 to October 28.

“These shortcomings may be due in part to fear of reporting to law enforcement, a lack of awareness of the rights and resources afforded to victims, and barriers to accessing official reporting sources,” said a motion presented by Raman in September. “Historically, the only direct reporting mechanism for hate crimes and hate incidents in the City of Los Angeles was through the Los Angeles Police Department.”

$1.5m to be paid to police chief who wore Nazi insignia https://serversunderthesun.com/1-5m-to-be-paid-to-police-chief-who-wore-nazi-insignia/ Sat, 11 Jun 2022 04:51:18 +0000 https://serversunderthesun.com/1-5m-to-be-paid-to-police-chief-who-wore-nazi-insignia/

A suburban Seattle town will pay more than $1.5 million to settle a dispute with a former deputy police chief who was disciplined for displaying a Nazi rank insignia on his office door and joking about the Holocaust.

Former Kent Police Deputy Chief Derek Kammerzell, who had worked for the department for nearly three decades, was initially granted two weeks unpaid leave after the 2020 incident. Outraged locals and members of the Jewish community prompted Mayor Dana Ralph to put Kammerzell on paid administrative leave and demand his resignation.

The city’s attempt to essentially discipline Kammerzell a second time led to a dispute between his attorneys and the city that appeared to be heading towards litigation. But the city’s acting chief administrative officer, Arthur “Pat” Fiztpatrick, who is also the city attorney, said Friday that the city had resolved the issue through negotiation, the Seattle Times reported.

Ralph, in calling for Kammerzell’s resignation in January, acknowledged that the decision to revisit the discipline issue “would likely come at a high cost.” The city said Friday it would pay him $1,520,000 to resign.

If the city had simply fired him, officials said, he likely would have gotten his job back through arbitration due to federal and state labor laws.

An internal investigation concluded that Kammerzell knew the meaning of the insignia he placed above the nameplate on his office door in September 2020 – that of an “obergruppenfuhrer” – a senior official in the paramilitary Schutzstaffel of Hitler, or SS, who was responsible for the systematic murders of millions of Jews and others in Europe during World War II.

The badge was removed after four days when a detective from the Investigations Office, commanded by Kammerzell, filed a complaint.

Kammerzell was also heard joking about the Holocaust, according to the internal investigation.

Messages left by the newspaper for Kammerzell’s lawyer and the Kent Police Officers Association were not immediately returned.

White Castle has again achieved Great Place to Work certification. This is the second year in a row that White Castle has been part of this elite group of employers.

The 101-year-old family business has long been recognized as a leader in the food industry with incredible scores for loyalty and team member engagement. More than one in four of the company’s 10,000 team members have worked at White Castle for 10 years or more. And nearly all of White Castle’s 450 regional managers, district supervisors, general managers and operations leadership team members began their careers behind the White Castle counter.

“The loyalty of our team members is distinctive and their commitment sets the standard in our industry,” said John Kelly, Director of Human Resources and fourth generation family member. “We have the best team in the business, hands down.”

Named for the administrative assistant who worked 67 years at White Castle for the company’s first three presidents, the day is an annual opportunity to recognize the service of all her team members, past and present. This celebration in 2022 marks the 80th anniversary of Elaine’s first day on the job.

In September, White Castle will induct a special group of 42 team members into the 25 Year Club. In 1946, company founder Billy Ingram became the first team member to reach 25 years of service. Since then, many have followed in his footsteps. This year’s inductees will bring the total number of 25 Year Club members to 2,205.

“Whether you’ve been with us for two years or 20 years, we celebrate the great contributions of all our team members,” adds John Kelly. “The memorable moments they create for our customers can truly last a lifetime.”

Great Place to Work is the global authority on workplace culture. Since 1992, they’ve surveyed more than 100 million employees worldwide and used that deep insight to define what makes a great workplace: trust. Their employee survey platform gives leaders the feedback, real-time reports, and insights they need to make data-driven decisions. Everything they do is driven by the mission to build a better world by helping every organization become a great place to work for everyone.

Former deputy police commissioner appointed head of Civil Service College https://serversunderthesun.com/former-deputy-police-commissioner-appointed-head-of-civil-service-college/ Fri, 03 Jun 2022 13:24:56 +0000 https://serversunderthesun.com/former-deputy-police-commissioner-appointed-head-of-civil-service-college/

The Hong Kong government recently promoted another former police officer to a key role in policing officials. Kwok Yam-shu, a former deputy police commissioner, who retired in April 2022, will be the first director of the Civil Service College and will take office on July 5. While the Hong Kong government and politicians have praised Kwok’s management experience in the police force, some analysts believe the appointment is a sign that the government will try to instill loyalty and compliance in officials, who were trained to defend values ​​such as political neutrality, professionalism and performance.

On June 1, the Hong Kong government announced Kwok’s appointment as head of the Civil Service College, following an open, internal recruitment process, with a monthly salary of HK$273,000 (US$35,000). ). In June 2021, when the government proposed the post for approval by the Legislative Council, it was already rumored that Kwok would be appointed to the post.

Kwok’s wolf-warrior style rhetoric: the UK is a “thief” and the The basic DNA of the United States is aggressive

Kwok Yam-shu, 57, who served in the Hong Kong police for 31 years, starting as an inspector in 1990 and promoted to chief superintendent in 2007, chief superintendent in 2011, deputy commissioner in 2014, senior deputy commissioner in 2017, and under -commissioner in 2019, had just retired in April, before his appointment.

In an interview with Bloomberg’s Stephen Engle last year, Kwok spoke about Hong Kong’s national security law and other issues. He said Hong Kong faced a “perpetual” national security risks. “There are countries on earth whose basic DNA is aggressive.” He was talking about the United States. He also added that it was an “open secret” that the United States intended to “stifle China’s development”.

He compared the UK to a ‘thief’, who needs to return a stolen family heirloom but is unhappy when the owner decides to increase its security measures.

Dr Wong Wai-kwok, a former assistant professor of politics and international relations at Hong Kong Baptist University, said Hong Kong already has a “politically correct” atmosphere in which the discourse is more left-wing, radical and extreme. , the more likely it may be appreciated by Lee Ka-chiu and Beijing Liaison Offices, and “lead to better positions and higher ranks”. He pointed out that when the government is made up of a group of people who are extreme in word, thought and action, it is easy to make policy mistakes, leading to disastrous or unpredictable results.

The executive leadership of the Hong Kong government should be replaced

The establishment of the Civil Service College was proposed by Chief Executive Carrie Lam in her 2017 policy speech and the college was established in December 2021. According to the Hong Kong government, the College will improve civil servants’ understanding of the Constitution China, the Basic Law of the Hong Kong SAR, the National Security Law of Hong Kong, as well as their knowledge of national affairs, which is considered “the top priority of civil service training”. In addition, the College will strengthen its training programs, with more study tours and exchange activities organized in mainland China.

Interviewed by Sarah Liang (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhKz_dpX9n8), a Chinese-language reporter for the Epoch Times, senior banker Victor Ng Ming-tak said government administrative officers (AOs) were conspicuously absent from Lee’s campaign advisory team, which included a 90-member presidium and 58 consultants. “Not a single one was a (current) administrative officer (AO),” he said, in all of Lee’s campaign team. He predicted that over the next 25 years, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) would gradually replace the current executive level of government, i.e. more than 300 administrative officers, and that this would be the top priority of Lee Ka-chiu to replace the current level rank with the new mainland migrants in Hong Kong, who have Beijing’s support and would not need to worry about Hong Kong people when pushing their policies. “It will be a very smooth race for them.”

Professor Wong Wai-Kwok: Police should follow orders while officials should be politically neutral; The two are fundamentally different

Dr Wong Wai-kwok also pointed out that the appointment signified that the government deliberately wanted to influence the civil service through the police or law enforcement sector. In the long term, he argued, having a former policeman hold any position in government would weaken the power and influence of traditional civil servants and administrative officers.

According to Wong, policing is about loyalty and following orders, while public service is about political neutrality, professionalism and performance. The formations are fundamentally different for the two. He said Regina Yip, a former security secretary, was wrong to cite police management experience as Kwok’s strength for her new post. “Besides being ignorant, she was obviously biased towards disciplinary forces due to her background,” Wong said.

Wong also argued that civil service training is political training in nature. Under the CCP dictatorship, the Civil Service College would become the “party school”, producing “politically correct” cadres, toeing the party line and implementing party wishes.

According to the current training rules of the CCP National Civil Service Bureau, the civil service training program must ensure that “the CCP controls the cadres.” Senior officials (at county level or above) are required to attend party school every five years.
