first_imgBeech: “They have not. I know that there’s going to be a whole subset of marijuana tourism; however, until we as a state figure out what our guidelines are and the city figures out what their guidelines are, I think everybody’s just playing the waiting game, waiting to see, waiting to see.” The federal government has promised to stay out of sate marijuana policy, so long as it doesn’t violate federal priorities, stays off federal parkland, and doesn’t cross state lines. We asked Johna Beech with the Kenai Chamber of Commerce if many tourists this year have been asking about the legalized drug… FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享As state and local governments continue to put together new laws for recreational marijuana, they must consider how to regulate marijuana tourism.

‘Overseas Citizens of Liberia,’ not Dual Citizenship

first_imgThe Pastor of the New Water in the Desert Assembly (NWIDA), Reverend Dr. Kortu K. Brown, has called on “ordinary Liberians” to stand up against dual citizenship to avoid what he called “recreating the age-old Americo-Liberian Country divide” that plunged the country into a bloody coup and a devastating civil war to undermine the country.Rev. Brown, who pastors the Apostolic Pentecostal Church (APC), was speaking last Sunday during divine thanksgiving worship service.  He argued that the current dual citizenship drive is not timely nor a priority for reconstruction and development.Dr. Brown, who is also the 1st vice president of the Liberia Council of Churches (LCC), averred that “there are those who argue that the country will not be developed until it embraces dual citizenship.”The Pentecostal cleric, however, reminded dual citizenship advocates that statistics show that there are more than 65 countries, some very powerful in the world that do not promote dual citizenship and have considerably developed; citing China, Sweden, Japan, Cameroun, Malawi, Indonesia, Sierra Leone, and Zimbabwe, among others.The APC general overseer noted that the real challenge with the dual citizenship is “divided loyalty”.Dr. Brown argued that more influential Liberians with foreign connections have shown more loyalty to foreign states than their country of birth; saying the question of divided loyalty cannot be ignored in the current debate.“When Liberians who have resided in foreign countries are dismissed, they revert to their new country of residence where they hold greater loyalty and willingness to follow the laws of that country than their country of birth.”Furthering his argument, Dr. Brown suggested that Liberia adopt the Indian model of dual citizenship, dubbed as the “Overseas Citizens of India,” (OCI), not “Dual Citizenship.”The apostolic cleric is therefore suggesting that the country endorses a law creating the “Overseas Citizens of Liberia” for all persons of Liberian birth, provided that OCL status holders are not permitted to carry Liberian passports, vote in local elections, stand as candidates for any elected office, hold constitutional offices of President, Vice President, Lawmaker, Judge, Cabinet Minister, among others and senior level appointments in government.According to Rev. Brown’s anti-dual citizenship debate and his favored OCL suggestion, Overseas Citizens of Liberia, will be entitled to travel documents, dubbed “OCL Booklet” to enable them to freely travel to their motherland and participate in the socio-economic development of the country.The OCL Booklet holders, according to Rev. Brown’s suggestion, may own properties and engage in any lawful business of their choice.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Montreal police seek potential witness in case of missing 10yearold boy

first_imgMONTREAL – Montreal police said Friday they are looking to speak with a woman who was in the same park where a 10-year-old boy was last seen before he went missing last March.Police don’t consider the woman a witness to the disappearance of Ariel Jeffrey Kouakou, but are hopeful she can provide information about the hours leading up to the last time he was seen, said Insp. Ian Lafreniere.Investigators received a tip a few days ago describing a woman smoking a cigarette between 11 and 11:30 a.m. in a north-end Montreal park on March 12, the day Kouakou went missing.“She won’t help us to find Ariel,” Lafreniere told reporters. “This is really more about knowing what happened, were there were any kids playing by the river?”Another witness, also a woman, told police early on in the investigation that she spoke to Kouakou about 2 p.m. at Parc Des Bateliers, which borders the Riviere des Prairies.The young boy had left his home in the Ahuntsic-Cartierville borough earlier in the day to visit a friend.Police say they believe that the Kouakou fell into a river and drowned, but his father has insisted that he was abducted.Divers searched the area as recently as the end of May but did not find any trace of the missing boy.last_img read more
