OTTAWA Raul Jimenez Mexicana Camiseta , Jan. 26 (Xinhua) -- The Canadian government discriminates against indigenous children on reserves by failing to provide the same level of child welfare services available to children off reserves, the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ruled here Tuesday.
The tribunal, a quasi-judicial body that reviews cases of discrimination sent to the Canadian Human Rights Commission, found that the Canadian government provides lower funding to child welfare on reserves than what the Canadian provinces give children off reserves.
This has ""resulted in denials of services and created adverse impacts for many First Nations children and families living on reserves,"" said the two-member tribunal, who recommended a redesign of the aboriginal child-welfare system and its funding.
The Canadian government refers the aboriginal ethnic group as ""First Nations.""
First Nations child and family services is managed by the Canadian Department of Indigenous and Northern Affairs, which must ""cease the discriminatory practice and take measures to redress and prevent it,"" said the tribunal in its 182-page decision.
The case began nine years ago when the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society, a national aboriginal organization, and the Assembly of First Nations (AFN), which represents more than 900,000 First Nations people living on reserves, filed a complaint alleging that the Canadian government discriminated against children living on reserves.
""Today the kids win,"" AFN National Chief Perry Bellegarde said in a statement following the ruling. ""This ruling is nine years in the making. That is a full generation of children waiting for justice and fairness, not to mention the decades of discrimination that has created the gap between First Nations and Canadians.""
The AFN pointed out that the ruling also states that the Canadian government failed to fully implement ""Jordan's Principle,"" a child-first principle used in Canada to resolve jurisdictional disputes within and between governments regarding payment for government services provided to First Nations children.
It's named after Jordan River Anderson, a First Nations child who died in hospital of a rare muscular disorder in 2005 at the age of five after the governments of Canada and the province of Manitoba argued over which jurisdiction should pay for his home care.
Canada's House of Commons unanimously passed Jordan's Principle in 2007, but the idea behind it has never been fully implemented at the federal, provincial or territorial level.
Canadian Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, the first indigenous person to hold the post, told reporters Tuesday that neither she nor the government were ""surprised"" by the tribunal's decision.
""At this time in our country's history, discrimination in any form is entirely unacceptable,"" she said.
Since 1976, the Lotus Esprit has given people a spectrum of sensations. Originally tabbed as the replacement for the famous Europa, over time it has been in a position to make a legend of its own. Coming under different forms throughout its history, each version of the Esprit has in some way been able to raise the bar and satisfy expectations of legions of car fans everywhere. And now, this spectrum of sensations can be evoked once again. Because if everything proceeds as planned, the Lotus Esprit is set to return for an encore somewhere between 2013 and 2014.
During the 2010 Paris Auto Show, Lotus has made a splash in front of a lot of automotive fans. 5 completely new cars were released and are geared up to be produced within a couple of years. But the car that took center stage is the Esprit. It was the first time that the namesake was used since production was halted in 2004. And it was quite a car. According to Lotus chief executive officer Dany Bahar, it would mark the return of the final supercar. And based on how it looks, it might be in a position to back up Bahar’s word.
It is hard to build a successor of any car, particularly when it has the standing of the Esprit. This car is the exemplification of an ideal sports car, the stuff of James Bond movies. The style was innovative as it was stylish. It is easily about the most aggressive looking concept cars seen in recent memory. Evoking the sensations developed by the prior generation Esprit models, it is sharp and edgy like its forefathers, showing that Guigaro’s original Esprit concept is still alive and well. Still, it is every bit as modern as it was nostalgic. From the LED lights to the radically sculpted rear end, the Esprit is made to take on the sports cars of the future.
Going inside the car, the futuristic theme goes to another level, and unleashes a couple of more colors from the spectrum. Featuring a minimalist approach, a high technology steering wheel, a digital instrument cluster, and carbon fiber trim all give individuals who are lucky enough to get inside it a glimpse of an honest sports car in action.
Under the hood, speculations abound. A V6 or a V8 engine can either (or both) be used for the vehicle. Both developed in-house, they also might feature turbocharging. A horsepower output in between 500 to 600 brake horse power all seem likely, and is expected to be lighter and more fuel efficient than similar engines. Hybrid power can also be seen sooner or later. Mated with a 7-speed transmission (with the possibility of having 2 clutches), it is expected to accelerate from zero-to-100 kph under 3.5 seconds and max out at over 200 miles an hour. Those are obviously supercar numbers, and can get anyone’s sensations pumped up.
Once development is dead, the Lotus Esprit is going to make its comeback in 2013 at the earliest. And established on what we saw on the prototype, it can unleash the same spectrum of sensations car aficionados experienced with the Esprit cars of yesteryear.
