  • Medical examiner at centre of racial complaint against Alberta judge overwhelmed

    first_imgBill Graveland, The Canadian PressNote to readers: This story has been clarified to include explanation of why Ruether would not comment on the complaint. CALGARY — A medical examiner who testified at the trial of an Alberta couple who were charged in their child’s death says he is overwhelmed that legal and health professionals have filed a complaint alleging some comments the judge made about the doctor could be racist.Last week, Justice Terry Clackson found David and Colett Stephan not guilty of failing to provide the necessaries of life to their 19-month-old son Ezekiel.In his written decision, Clackson said Dr. Bamidele Adeagbo was hard to understand and spoke with an accent.A letter dated Thursday and signed by 42 doctors and lawyers from across Canada asks the Canadian Judicial Council to investigate Clackson’s comments.Adeagbo, who is originally from Nigeria, was aware of the letter when he was reached by The Canadian Press on Friday.“At this point I am not going to give any comment on what Justice Clackson did or not. I will leave it to his own peers,” Adeagbo said from his office in Terre Haute, Ind., where he now practises.“It’s still kind of making me a little bit emotional.”The Stephans testified they thought their son had croup and that they used herbal remedies to treat him. They called for an ambulance when he stopped breathing, but he died in hospital.Adeagbo testified that Ezekiel died of bacterial meningitis, but the judge sided with a forensic pathologist called by the defence. She said the boy’s death was caused by a lack of oxygen.Adeagbo, who said he testified at more than 50 criminal cases while working in Canada, said he only knows one of the people who signed the letter.“I was quite overwhelmed that people really can see through all of this and see the truth,” he said.“There are good people in Canada and they will not stand for this type of behaviour … I see people rising up to stand for what is right, and I really am proud of Canada’s people.”Clackson took issue with Adeagbo’s inability to communicate with the court.“His ability to articulate his thoughts in an understandable fashion was severely compromised by: his garbled enunciation; his failure to use appropriate endings for plurals and past tenses; his failure to use the appropriate definite and indefinite articles; his repeated emphasis of the wrong syllables; dropping his Hs; mispronouncing his vowels; and the speed of his responses,” Clackson wrote.The judge, without explanation, also called out Adeagbo for “body language and physical antics … not the behaviours usually associated with a rational, impartial professional imparting opinion evidence.”The group’s letter about Clackson suggest some people may perceive Clackson’s comments as racist.“In particular, Justice Clackson harshly mocked Dr. Adeagbo’s manner of speech and accented English, and thereby inappropriately implicated his national or ethnic origin as a person of African roots.”The judicial council on Friday confirmed that it had received a complaint against Clackson and would review it.“In this matter, the review of the complaint may take additional time since the Crown Prosecution Service has indicated it is considering an appeal of the court’s decision,” it said.Darryl Ruether, executive legal counsel for the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta, said Clackson can remain on the bench while the judicial council investigates. Ruether said he could not comment on the complaint, because it’s before the council and the verdict may be appealed.Online biographies say Adeagbo earned his medical degree in Nigeria in 1991. He has worked in Canada and the United States for 19 years.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 27, 2019.— Follow @BillGraveland on Twitterlast_img read more

  • BAHAMAS Ministry of Social Services Announces Plans for Rehabilitation Week

    first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, November 3, 2017 – Nassau – The week of November 6th – 13th, 2017 is Rehabilitation Week.   The Hon. Lanisha Rolle, Minister of Social Services and Urban Development made the declaration at a press conference to officially announce activities planned by the Department of Rehabilitative and Welfare Services to observe the week.The activities include the following: a Juvenile Forum for high school students to address Bullying, Gang Violence and Sexual Health; a Parenting Workshop organized by the National Parenting Programme in conjunction with the Northeastern Pastors Alliance; and a Staff Motivational Seminar.   The theme for the week is, “Redefining Life through Rehabilitation.”Minister Rolle, at the department’s University Drive offices, said: the activities aim to inform the public about the role the Department plays in providing services to the community as well as in the development of youth, particularly those who encounter problems with the law, who are in Correctional Institutions, and who seek professional help.“Juveniles in Correctional Institutions share the same interests with all youths, and because they are separated from family, friends and neighborhood groupings, they have an increased need for informal relationships with others.   The Department of Rehabilitative and Welfare Services recognizes this need and is taking every corrective measure to ensure that proper interventions and programmes are in place to treat and rehabilitate, as we move towards empowering them for a better tomorrow.“The rehabilitation process is considered to be complex, with a number of variables which are all directed towards behavior modification, behavior management and lifestyle changes of the ex-offender.   However, the most promising rehabilitation takes place in the home and community.  The home is where the child first receives from their parents the kind of love and nurturing that shape their lives forever.   I venture to say that the occurrence of violence in our school system is a direct result of a lack of or insufficient parenting in the home,” said Minister Rolle.She opined that incarceration does little to break the cycle of crime or rehabilitate the offender, and once an offender is sentenced to incarceration for any offence, it is likely that he will return should he not receive the necessary intervention.The role of the Department of Rehabilitative and Welfare Services in the Ministry of Social Services and Urban Development is not only to develop programs based on the ex-offender’s rehabilitative needs, but to also provide training and technical assistance that build community capacity, so they can develop and implement projects that make a difference in the lives of children, youths and community.She pledged the Ministry’s commitment to transforming communities through the delivery of “effective” and “efficient” services to and on behalf of the Bahamian people.By: Kathryn Campbell (BIS) Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp BIS Photos/Derek SmithPhoto captions:Header photo:Representatives of the Department of Rehabilitative and Welfare Services who are responsible for Rehabilitation Week are pictured.Insert #1: The Hon.

  • Premier exonerated from rumors about citizenship TCIbirther investigation proves Robinson is legitimate

    first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#TurksandCaicos, December 22, 2017 – Providenciales – The Premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands is Bahamian born, but she is no longer a Bahamian citizen and can legally and is rightfully holding elected office in the Turks and Caicos Islands; this is the conclusion of an Integrity Commission investigation into the eligibility of Sharlene Robinson to be the premier following a complaint filed just last month.The complaint comes after Robinson has served a full term as the first all island member and Leader of the Opposition from 2012 to 2016 and after she was elected in 2016, once again as the first all island member and the leader of the People’s Democratic Movement party .   The investigation is one of many peculiar attacks on the country leader amidst ongoing social media and social circle rows which have unraveled and erupted in plain sight over the year; with brutal, vicious and downright disrespectful comments being made by some people on both sides of the divide.The Integrity Commission’s Deputy Director, Richard Been said the IC is compelled by law to investigate all complaints.   His media release today said in part, “the Commission investigated these allegations and can confirm that they are false.   Prior to the 2012 General Elections and in compliance with the law as it was then interpreted, the Premier did renounce her Bahamian citizenship along with some other members of the House of Assembly affected.   She is also in possession of current and previous TCI Passports, some dating back to more than ten years ago.   She was thus eligible and was duly elected into the TCI House of Assembly in 2012.   Since then, and notwithstanding the current position of the law, she had neither applied for nor possessed any Bahamian Passport.   Thus, she remained eligible for and was duly elected into the House Assembly at the 2016 General Elections, contrary to the complaint.   Most, if not all, of these facts are easily verifiable from the public and official records of the relevant authorities in TCI and the Bahamas.”In putting the rumor to bed, the Integrity Commission also asks countrymen to be more responsible in using social media.“The Commission is once again emphasizing that persons who use the liberty of social media as a cloak to make or give false and malicious information or complaints against other persons, agencies or institutions, especially where the truth of such information or complaint can easily be confirmed, must be prepared to face the severe consequences under the law for doing so.”The warning is a firm reminder that some individuals may be opening themselves up to liable or defamation law suits for false or erroneous character attacks.#MagneticMediaNews#Premierexoneratedfromcitizenshiprumors#IntegrityCommissionclearsPremier Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#IntegrityCommissionclearsPremier, #magneticmedianews, #Premierexoneratedfromcitizenshiprumorslast_img read more
